Hi, I noticed you made a series of edits which just added a 'space' like this one. FYI, you can add a page to your watchlist by clicking the star at the top right of a page. (You don't have to edit it).
Regarding your edits on the Curse page:
I suspect the curse server's only function is to track global curse scores. And was to fix the problem of the curse system being "implemented separately on each server" (Sept 11 2018), giving griefers "15x opportunity for griefing". In Jason's words: "A global database that tracks players' total curse scores, shared by all servers." (Sept 11 2018).
Some time after the donkey town update (v.139, September 15, 2018), this idea was implemented: "Global curse server is going to be tracking lifetime curse points, along with total score." (Sept 21 2018). The first two commits you linked (Sep 21 2018 and Sep 22 2018) coincide with that forum comment, and the descriptions match. This agrees what you said that "Jason made the curse server later". But does not indicate that it is a playable server.
The final commit (Nov 1 2018) you linked coincides with another of his forum comments regarding time served in donkey town (Oct 31 2018). On the same day as the commit, Jason posted on the forums that "Donkey town is on server1. It's just very far away. Actually, it's on every server, whatever server you join." (Nov 1 2018). This removes any uncertainty about the first two commits implementing a playable curse server.
I can't find any more recent related forum comments. There doesn't appear to be anything to indicate that the server is playable, changed to be so, that Donkey Town was ever intended to be on a separate server. Or to back up the second part of your claim that "The original far away spawns were just a placeholder since he had run out of time for the update.". I'd appreciate it if you could help confirm with Jason, or on the forums, whether or not this is not the case.
