I think it was Pacificminer or some staff in 2.0.
I remember how any of them were saying in 2.0 that the server reset isn't going to happen in the long run. It got reset within half a year when the server got gliched removing everyone's /sethome's.
That was understandable for the reset.
3.0 survived only half a year if not less and the reason was told that most people got maxed really fast.
Now in 4.0 it's got a bit challenging, but I noticed how people were suggesting stuff to make it easier for them. In results now it feel's that next reset will be in another half a year just like in 3.0.
(just said what I see and my own opinion, don't like it don't read it).
