Great job everyone! White Harbor has been open for just 10 days and a good third (at least) is built already. From 34 unique builders, you guys have made 133 contributions, with an average of 3 contributions per builder. Currently the top 10 contributors are:
Keep up the great work everyone, and do go back to your old houses and check for melons. A pink glass pillar means your house is unfinished and/or meloned in an area that's been "approved".

City completion is still moving forward at an astonishing rate, keep up the great work everyone. Since last week, we've gained 5 more unique builders to the city. Average contributions are up to 5 per builder now, and we're sitting at a total of 202 contributions.
The current rankings are as follows:
There are a few PSAs I'd like to make to new and old builders alike. I'm having to leave too many melons on too many houses about this stuff:

White Harbor is a cold city. Houses should be built with heat in mind. Shutters aren't enough to keep the breeze out entirely and medieval houses are drafty. Keep your number of windows down to a reasonable number. I know it's hard to make exteriors interesting without them, but it's compromising the logic of the house. Also avoid having two-wide arch windows. They let way too much cold air in.
When you're furnishing attics, keep in mind what you're putting up there. They can't easily haul barrels or crates up ladders, nor shelves or beds. Always have a staircase if possible. If it's not possible, keep furnishing in the attic light.
Here's to another week of progress!

And now, a special address from the Honorary and Rightful President Bernard Sanders.
DEAR BUILDERS OF WESTEROSCRAFT,
WHEN WE STARTED THIS PROJECT IN LATE OCTOBER, WE HAD JUST A FEW HOUSES AND EVEN FEWER CONTRIBUTORS. TODAY, WE HAVE GROWN THIS PROJECT TO A TOTAL OF 43 UNIQUE BUILDERS WITH 254 TOTAL CONTRIBUTIONS. IN MY VIEW, THIS IS AN ENCOURAGING SIGN THAT PEOPLE ARE COMING TOGETHER TO BE A PART OF THE CITY BUILDING PROCESS.
AND THAT IS WHAT THIS PROJECT IS ABOUT; IT'S ABOUT INVITING ALL OF THE MEMBERS OF OUR SERVER TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE CITY AND HAVE THEIR CREATIVE VOICES BE HEARD. UNFORTUNATELY, DESPITE OUR MANY SPIRITED CONTRIBUTORS, THERE HAS BEEN A SHIFT IN PRODUCTIVITY FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS TO THE MOST ELITE CLASS OF CONTRIBUTORS.
ALTHOUGH I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT THE AVERAGE DONATION FROM OUR BUILDERS IS 5 CONTRIBUTIONS, THE LEVEL OF CONTRIBUTION INEQUALITY IS SKYROCKETING. WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS, THE TOP 23% OF BUILDERS HAS BUILT 63% OF WHITE HARBOR. JUST 10 BUILDERS HAVE MADE 160 CONTRIBUTIONS, COMPARED TO THE 90 CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE BOTTOM 33.
LET ME JUST SAY THIS: WHILE I APPRECIATE THE TIME AND ENERGY ALL OUR BUILDERS HAVE GIVEN TO THE PROJECT, I THINK WE HAVE GOT TO SEIZE THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION FROM THE TOP 23% AND PUT IT BACK IN THE HANDS OF THE WORKING BUILDER. WE ARE THE BEST MAJOR MINECRAFT SERVER ON EARTH, AND WE CAN DO BETTER!
IF THIS PROJECT HAS PROVEN ANYTHING, IT HAS PROVEN THAT TENS OF BUILDERS WHO LOVE THIS SERVER ARE PREPARED TO STAND UP AND BUILD TO MAKE THE BEST CITY THIS SERVER HAS EVER SEEN.
THANK YOU ALL, THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES.
THE INFAMOUS TOP 23%

I'm posting this a day too early, but today is a special day. That's right folks...
It's the one-month anniversary of White Harbor!
By my estimates, in just one month's time we complete roughly 65% of the city! Progress has been continuing at a steady pace and if we keep this up, we can be done the city before New Years! NO BRAKES!
Although we haven't added any new builders, we've had 27 more contributions (up to 281). The good news is, this raised our average contribution per builder up to 6 contributions! Hell yea!!!!!!
I'd like to wish a special happy anniversary to the top 10 White Harbor lovers:
