Try out Dragoncraft. You must reg. on our forums, this helps to keep griefing down. I realize some people don't like to register, but it's well worth it. All our staff are 18+. I've been running this server for just over 9months, small community. We have a huge map 1.5gigs to date. And we encourage players to go out and explore, build and survive.
Hey, I don't know if you like to pvp or building or just walk around enjoying the view :wink.gif:
I could advise the Darkwood server. It is an pvp orientated server but you are able to protect areas from griefing with the help of goldblocks. So you can raid people but it's also possible to build anything you want without worrying about it being destroyed.
Here My server has been online for 3 months and I intend to keep it for a long time as well as with some help from my loyal members ! If you're interested or want to find out a little bit more about my server then check out my thread :
