sleepycraft is an interesting mix of features. It is an anarchy server, but also has claims. That means players are allowed to destroy, steal, and generally grief one another's land and creations. But, if those things are placed inside of a claim they are grief protected!
What made me interested in reviewing this server was this cool concept, and the clear website, showing me exactly what the sleepycraft has to offer. Immediately on visiting the website, visitors are given this information, telling them just what sleepycraft has to offer.
We set out to create a 100% free Vanilla Minecraft Anarchy experience with a small twist -- make griefing and theft much more difficult by introducing very basic land claims. This way, players can better protect their bases and chests, but will need to find clever solutions to ensure their safety. Users are granted 100 claim blocks on login, and 50 additonal claim blocks per hour of activity on server.

The place where I spawned on the server seemed like a random place in the wilderness. And the "spawn" of the server, if this is what you'd call it, are these pictured creations above. There is a diamond and black glass beacon, and a black bed, like in their logo, which is placed on a dark wood base floating in the water.
At the time of review, there was only one other player online on sleepycraft. I talked with them as I did the review, and they were friendly and said they enjoyed the concept of the server as well. Although the server was posted on Planet Minecraft only minutes before I reviewed it, there were no staff present. (Their website claims that there are "no staff" – but that means no moderation.)
Exploring the server, I was spawned what seemed like a random piece of land. I explored the area. Pictures of this are below.
All in all, this server has a neat concept, one that blends the chaos of anarchy with the locked-down structure of claim-based building. I recommend this server for people who like this idea, and enjoy new servers.
