Below is reoccurring issues mayors and residents might face in game.

Mayors. 

A resident has a plot, but is - too inactive - has an incomplete home leaving the plot untidy - left town with belongings still on plot and as mayor I want to move their belongings to free up the plot.
To remove their belongings without their permission would be griefing and this is not allowed.  Obtain permission from the new resident before they start building.
Here are some suggestions.
Have them place a sign on a wall under this agreement.
I give permission for [mayor] to remove my belongings if I should:
1. Become inactive in the town after ______ many days,  leave an incomplete home, and untidy plot.
2. Left town and no longer want my belongings there.

NOTE: A screenshot of the agreement will be proof you are not griefing. Permission 2 - When a player leaves a town, or is kicked, many do not realise they cannot retrieve their belongings, but want to. 
An understanding mayor will reinvite them to collect their stuff.



Residents.

I left town, now I can't open my door or chest in my old home town.
Most towns are set so outsiders (people who no longer live in the town) can't build, destroy switch or use items in a town. It stops people who are not residents from griefing.

You can choose to leave the belongings there, or ask to be reinvited so you can collect your belongings.  You may have to wait for the mayor or the assistants to come online to reinvite you.  Type /t [townname] to see who is Mayor:   or Assistants:

This is a great tool for both residents and mayors! Especially the part about inactive residents plots and getting permission, I know his is a mistake many many people make. I know I'll definitely refer to this often, thanks sun!

Update:


The ambulance at the bottom of the cliff situation.
When a player has left belongings on the plot and the mayor wants them removed.


Have the mayor send a /mail or message on forums requesting the belongings to be removed within a time frame.

Player comes back, reads message, removes stuff, everyone is happy.

Player does not come back to read the mail or messages sent after reasonable given time, player seeks permission from someone who can break the locked furnace, sign, chest, hopper. Locked things. Either stores them for owner or does what he/she wishes too.
________________________________________________

So it dos not happen again..... Here is the "fence at the top of the cliff"
Town Staff obtaining permission from residents before they join the town.

1. New residents give permission to remove belongings if the Town Staff see they have not completed their first home within a time frame(1 week),(or whatever reasons they generally have problems with resident belongings)

Obtaining proof by
- Placing a sign on a board marking their agreement. Showing mods the agreement and the sign they placed in agreement of the conditions
.
- Typing they agree to the conditions in the chat and taking a screenshot of the agreement for evidence to show on forums the agreement.

- Or reading the conditions for residency in a book and signing it, giving back to the mayor when signed. Showing mods the book, showing they have permission.

Just ideas.... but can save alot of real time "grief" in the real sense of the word.

In Nemus, we have underground plots. We  don't have that much space so we made a rule if your offline for three weeks, we clear the plot. Would that be against the rules? We don't have very many plots down there, and we want them to stay active, so I don't know if that would be considered griefing...

I don't think so-- long as you have some agreement with your residents in agreeing to this? And proof to show they agreed to that arrangement. Some sort of evidence showing staf -- you have the owners permission to remove their belongings.

Yes I do a simular thing in my town, upon recieving a plot residents are asked to sign a contract (book and quill) stating that they agree to certain stipulations. I have found this works nicely, and you can easily find the evidence.
