This is a very interesting topic. I think if they all had been in one group (witch the could have ) there could have been an goverment and a presdent and taxes and things. Please if you do this again pm me it would be amasing. btw how did the Merchant's Guild live so long in that small house?
I have done a remake of this http://www.reddit.com/r/MinecraftExperiment/new/ ...and i loved it i would love to do it again but with new people and so forth...i lover your idea of one day when its least expected to have the wall simotaniously just be gone... It would be an interesting twist to this idea.
Keep me informed

I would love to try it if you will have me.
I get the feeling this is fake.
The screenshots show the ground as if it were hit with some powerful explosives mod rather than from players digging it out. It is very uneven, while players tend to strip mine in long lines producing a regular pattern.
Also people tend to replant their trees. It would only take a few people dedicated to replanting and soon the server would be a forest.
Actually reaching the griefers would be very easy, even if they were on the defense. Also why build a water elevator with pistons instead of just putting a dirt block in the way and digging it up? It seems like the kind of detail put in for narrative sake, rather than what actually happened.
Nice story though.
This was a real server it has been around in the minecraft community for some time now.
But if you are referring to him actually doing a remake of the server I couldn't tell you.
