I wonder what it would be like to have some players who take on construction jobs on the server?
If you're talking about 'real jobs' (ie actual money in amounts sufficient to live on), figure just like hiring any other employee: expensive, frustrating, time consuming, fraught with the peril of picking a jerk who interviews well, and burdened with endless paperwork.
If you're talking about geting some players to undertake tasks in return for: the esteem of their peers, the challenge, the fun, or some nominal payment (bannana bucks or whatever the server uses as an internal currency up to maybe the rare $5 honorarium)…
this may be:
a good way of offering those members who want such a way to contribute
a good way of getting some wanted things built (without the mods importing structures or using other god-mode techniques)
There are some downsides (particularly if undertaking such a task comes with perks that are considered sufficient reason in themselves).
Who gets to do what is another potentially divisive issue; not everyone who thinks they are a great builder is correct (and fewer still will have compatable styles), nor is a server likely to want more than one minecart railroad system or nether hub.
Assuming the server has a population of mature players (emotionally speaking, chronilogical age being only loosely correlated), the above ought be managable (particularly if group has been together for some time and communicates well).
If this is true (and especially if 'interesting' jobs can be found for all that want such assignments), this may be a way to create a spiffier server (particularly with respect to larger scale builds).
