I need a trap that will efficiently kill any burglars on my SMP server. Any ideas? So far I have tried:
-I built my house under a zombie spawner. Then, using redstone circuitry, opening the door would let them loose. Reasons it failed: The zombies remained after killing the player, eventually I had to call an exterminator service, and lost five iron ingots paying them.
-Created a piston floor which, when you step on a pressure plate, causes it to give way five seconds later. This drops you into a pool of water. The floor then closes above you, trapping you in and forcing you to drown. Reason it failed: People broke the pressure plate.
-Created a small wood shack to test this. A pressure plate in the center, well disguised, that, when stepped on, caused the walls to close in. Reason it failed: They mined their way out, and it could only be used in very small (3x3x3) shacks.
-Created an Enderman trap - using specific spawning conditions and a bribe to an Admin (long story) I created an Enderman spawner above my house in place of the Zombie spawner. The Enderman would fall in, then the invader would be forced to stand still until I got back. Reason it failed: RIP Enderman. How could they do this to you? How could they do what I did to so many of your brethren? Just for a pearl (and their lives) they killed you. KILLED!
Try making your house in a desert,then dig the deepest hole you can,put a TNT in the 2 top and put a sand up to it and then a pressure plate.Result:The player will fall constantly to death,the TNT will kill him if the fall rarely wont.

Just make your standard TNT landmine. They'll see it coming a mile away and try to dismantle it, which is why you hook up a bud to the TNT so that when they break it it sets off another explosion. Trapception.
I'm going to really have to try working in a server where the admins aren't as strict. Although you gave me a great idea for a service to perform in my current server, I'll keep checking back here for any advice people post to this topic.
Better solution. Go in the nether and travel about a thousand blocks in the middle of the nether. make a portal there them get a friend to dismantle the nether portal so there is no way to get through the portal. That way you are basically millions of blocks away from spawn.
