Yeah, someone raided us and took all the goodies in the blacksmith chest and the wheat from the farm. I replanted what little seeds I could scrounge up. And then I chopped some trees to make shovels. And then I dug into that sand/dirt hill. Then I must've dug the wrong block because suddenly the entire sand area I was standing on dropped and I went with it. Straight down into the lava. I lost about 256 blocks of sand intended for our walls.
Also, I left my trapdoor open to the mine. Apparently, about half the villagers thought it might be a good idea to hide in the deepest parts of it. I have no idea how to get them back to the surface. I thought maybe a zombie would scare them out, so I removed all the torches. So far, no luck.
But you know what? Monkeyhustle (the admin) is great. I wrote in asking to reconsider dropping the duration of the death ban to 24 hours. He wrote back this morning and made it so! That makes a huge difference for me and my little spare time. Everyone should play and donate a little. He deserves it!
