So the short answer is no. If youre unlucky enough to have multiple structures inside your region youre not allowed to claim it even if you have no interest in these structures(you could probably get another player to claim them for themselves and work with subclaims and trust mechanics but that would require trust between these players and may be seen as an exploit).HayanTokki wrote: ↑16 Aug 2020, 20:11Players can claim as much as their claim allowance allows them.
If you have enough claim blocks to claim your entire nether counterpart of your region, go ahead. This is going to be the only exception to being able to claim more than one structure of the same type.
Also there is no specification that prohibits players to claim AROUND a structure, build a wall and thus still effectively monoploizing that structure(also maybe an exploit but if youre not allowed to claim a structure despite only needing the coordinates nobody can fault you to claim random land no matter what it encompass).

Seniors have no plans in claiming on behalf of a player in the nether, so you will not be granted 'mayorship' in the nether and thus you will not be able to go into claim debt through the nether.
Yes this is the mechanic as specified in the rules, BUT there is the additional mechanic of mayorship allowing you to bypass the 160.000 needed claimblocks needed to claim a region.
If you want to claim a region and claim the connected nether to that region you would need 320.000 claimblocks, that would need 3200 hours of active playtime in total, as per rules youre not allowed to afk and get kicked automatically, so this would take 1/3 of a year of total playtime. Compare this to the old nether in which the nether connected to your region was only 2500 blocks large, so you would only need 25 additional hours of playtime. Also youre not allowed to claim before the claim debt of your overworld region is paid off.
A player cannot claim their build if they are still in claim debt, of course to claim huge amounts of land while still in claim debt would be irresponsible, but you do get asked to remove claims as small as 100 blocks(the minimum size) even if it is to prevent griefing and sabotage. To build without claiming your builds would either force you to work with only simple builds and replacable ressources, or put your work and your ressources at greater risk of loss. Also other players could claim your build for their own, and while Im confident that this would be resolved through Seniors and the Forum it would still be a time consuming task.HayanTokki wrote: ↑16 Aug 2020, 20:11All builds in the nether will be the player's obligation. Claims were introduced on the server so that players can protect their builds without seniors having to intervene. We want to really stress that going forward with the new nether being introduced. Please claim your builds and make sure you're building within your claims. Though we will still enforce the "If you didn't make it, don't touch it" rule, we strongly advise players to make sure their builds are protected. It is highly unlikely for us to revert destroyed builds or refund stolen items so it is crucial that you protect your builds the best you can. As for the ghast, they shouldn't be a problem because as we stated earlier, all block-break by explosions will be disabled in the nether.
The "If you didn't make it, don't touch it" rule is a gentlemans rule at best unless considerably damage was done.
Im really sorry if i seem overly anal about it, but unspecified rules will lead to problems that take way longer to resolve than to work out these rules in the first place. And while I do own a personal region and am currently in debt claim(still for 87.000 blocks) I do not whine here to be granted more stuff, but as I am unable to play for extended amount of times and these rules greatly favor people with only small claims or huge playtimes I want to bring out concerns of part-time hermits. And I in no way wish to take away the hard work of longtime players or wish to discredit players that chose to focus on smaller builds I only wish for a bit of safety in the most dangerous part of a minecraft world.
So i would propose that with the next reset of the nether players could be granted a certain amount of claimblocks(maybe around 500-1000 to build, or around 100-200 to secure nether portals) to be exclusively used in the nether as to grant everyone a fair chance to get a place of safety or nether structures if they so desire. Or if not granted at least not forced to remove claims below a certain size and amount.
If this is not possible as per server mechanics or as to server philosophies then just disregard this proposition. I just wanted to give a possible solution instead of only complaing.
