A good, simple survival server, running since 2012, close to vanilla but with the addition of Grief Prevention to allow players to claim land to protect their houses from griefing. PvP is enabled, and there is an all-new epic PvP arena, although PvP isn't the focus of the server - there are plenty of players who play only to build, and do not partake in PvP, along with some who do play to PvP. The spawn area is PvP protected, and the Grief Prevention plugin means you're safe if you build a safe house. New players are also immune to PvP for their first week (although they can remove the protection early if they wish).
We have a friendly and helpful community, with a wide mix of ages and nationalities. A new world spawn was recently built - the new spawn area is in all-new 1.8 chunks with the new block types, but the previous spawn location is still reachable via the /oldspawn command, and users can use a bed to set their home location to which they can teleport with the /home command at any time.
We have a welcome guide with more details at http://the-wild.tk/welcome
We have an IRC channel, #the-wild on Quakenet, linked to in-game chat, where some of the community and mod team can be found when they're not in-game.
