Should I join someone else? (In which case, where is everyone else?) Or should I set out and do my own thang? And does anyone mind me cutting down random trees? Like, if there are torches scattered around, does that mean someone doesn't want me messing with that land?
I think the best thing to do, when starting, is to first get someone on the server to show you around (I'm available a lot, though I'm also new so I don't know everything) to get a sense of scale, and where things are or aren't. Then go out and pick a closeby-but-empty area to get yourself started. Xeril set up some starter packs in the communarium, those should help. I suggest looking at the tectonius map (note to self: bookmark it), picking an empty lot, and building. <ad>build to the west, there's a lot going on.</ad>
I'll be online for the next few hours, so feel free to pop up. I'm sure others will be around too.
What versions do Psion's and ST's (?) server use? If I could be whitelisted on them (I'm mecheaon) I'd be happy to join, so long as I could get a .jar of whatever version of MC is being used somewhere.
Also, if neither of you/them end up converting to 1.9 when it comes out, I'd be willing to let folks on to mine -- though, the Full Release should be just around the corner, so it might be moot.
EDIT: Actually read the OP and pm'd Psion >.>
I've already become spoiled by swiftness potions
ST's server is more historic, and I think more active. Psion's server is newer and somewhat less crowded.

One of my favorite things about SMP is being able to explore the creations of other past and present minecrafters. Aesthetics are a lot more important than size (or so my beloved tells me. T_T) and I'm also looking for ideas when I travel; eventually I'll have to create a tavern. ...and my own aesthetic abilities are half the reason I'm letting the Endermen do so much of my decorating. ^_^ So, I'm not-so-privately hoping you join us so that we can visit your house and see your redstone toys.
I have a private rule regarding machinery/electronics in minecraft. Until I've made something that works by myself, I'm allowed no references. I have a prototype cobble generator (23/minute, but it loses half its drops to the lava), a prototype on/off switch for my SSP nether portal, and some prototype spawner grinders that work, but require constant attention to pick up the drops...and may probably slow down soon now that the behavior of generated mobs is changing. Maybe. (It turns out that mobs can somehow spawn even in a 20m radius around the edge of the loaded chunks? ...but since they're not loaded, they don't move or despawn, but still count toward the mob limit? I must experiment more.)
That's what SHE said!
And yes, Enokh, you should totally join us.
