submitted by Roseveld
Wildcard, can we make Rafts "demolish allowed" when tribes are inactive?

Official PVP Servers are being cluttered with rafts of tribes who have already long left servers. It goes to the point that some spots on the map are no longer enjoyable for active players. You simply can no longer navigate through certain sections of the map without getting constantly stuck!!
The center maps are obviously worse vs. the Island since rafts play a much bigger role there. BUT HOLY SH*T , please check No-Tame Center servers and be prepared to be baffled. Wish I could show some screenshots. (might post some later when back from work)
Some tribes have used rafts to make walking bridges from one island to the other , blocking complete waterways to sail through. Not to mention that with the X3 and X4 weekends people have been spamming rafts non stop for XP grind to level faster.
Active players do not bother farming explosives to blow up naked rafts as there is no gain. The Leedsichthys has been clocking overtime but can not handle this amount of rafts, certainly not in shallow shores where it can not reach the graveyards of rafts.
I know rafts do not get a lot of love as they are lost in the spaghetti code and classified as "Tame with platform" and recently lost their Vaults capacity.
Please Wildcard make the rafts "Demolish allowed" when tribes are no longer active. Give them the longest metal timer or even longer. But please give us a possibility to stop the Pollution of our seas.

PVE Offline Raid Protection being used for trolling
by Zed38,

Tribes are parking dinos at cave entrances and logging off, effectively preventing anyone from entering the caves.

https://www.reddit.com/r/ARK/comments/6g1i4u/survivor_classes_in_ark_which_class_are_you/?st=J3PD4AP1&sh=7aa2bb3c

Wildcard unintentionally created hero classes in ARK:

The Nudists (Noobs) The Lone Wolves (Solo/2 player partnerships) The Wolfpack (Local Tribes) The Covenant (Big Tribes) The Hive (Cross Server Raiders) The Pirates (Griefers)

The Nudists (Noobs): Excels at death and no-shirt, no-shoes but still gets service. Typically a temporary class, this type of survivor can progress to a different class after hours of repeated dying and learning. Or they will just leave their barely clothed unconscious carcass on the island to go back to playing COD or some EA sports game.

The Wolfpack (Local Tribes): Excels at communication and having fun. These survivors are usually part of a nerdy group of friends that mostly know each other in real life or from other games. They tend to spend a lot of time enjoying hobbies such as role-playing and team-killing.
One of the most enjoyable but niche class of survivors.

The Lone Wolves (Solo/2 player partnerships): Many survivors try this class, but it is difficult to master. They excel at negotiating and stealth. Typically they don't like playing with strangers and most of their friends don't play ark so they can't form a Wolfpack. They might have one buddy who they partner with to survive against all odds. The successful Lone Wolves are highly individually skilled.

The Covenant (Big Tribes): The most common survivor (not including temporary Nudists). They excel at organization and team-based taming. They are usually formed from survivors who switched from the previous classes and decided to follow one or more leaders. The leaders typically have strict rules that keep the tribe safe and strong, but as a consequence many leaders also tend to be snarky and self-absorbed. The tribe members can have a range of skills and personalities, but most enjoy pleasing their leader to move up in the ranks.

The Pirates (Griefers): These survivors excel at killing tames and being a**holes and are proud of it. They play ark like it's team deathmatch, they prefer not to spend time taming as it is quicker to club/tranq people. Unified servers tend to reduce the number of griefers.

The Hive (Cross Server Raiders): These survivors excel at transportation and raiding. They are too large for a single leader and usually function in a hive mentality, with each member working towards the common goal of causing a massive shit-storm.
