you place your first chest, you'll get an automatic land claim around
the chest. You'll see glowstone and gold blocks on the ground, outlining
your claimed area (those blocks are inside your claim). Those
blocks are only markers (you can't collect them), and only you can see
them. Place other valuable blocks like more chests, your furnace, and
your bed within the protected area to keep them safe. To see the markers
again later, you can use a piece of string (right-click).
When you get a golden shovel, you can expand your claim or create additional claims (see the video above). Use /AbandonClaim to delete a claim you own, or /AbandonAllClaims to delete all your claims at once.
The simple claim sharing command is /Trust, which gives another player permission to build in your claim. /AccessTrust grants access to ONLY buttons and switches, while /ContainerTrust permits a player to access your claim and additionally open your containers (chests, etc) and use your crafting equipment. Use /UnTrust to revoke any granted permissions, and /TrustList to see who has permission.
That player can't resize or delete your claim or use /PermissiontTrust
on your behalf, but you should use this command sparingly because you
may soon find that many strangers can access your claim. To clear away
all permissions for all players in your claim, use /UnTrust all.
get claim blocks over time just for playing, as long as you're not
idling (just standing around and chatting). As long as you appear to be
actively playing the game, you'll continue to get claim blocks. If it's
allowed on your server, you can also buy claim blocks with /BuyClaimBlocks and sell them with/SellClaimBlocks.
you advanced users out there, claims may be subdivided so that you may
manage permissions for different areas of your claim (think workshops,
fields, and residential plots) separately. To get started, use /SubdivideClaims.
You may resize subdivisions just like you resize your top level claim,
and can delete a subdivision by standing inside it and using /AbandonClaim. To "evict" a tenant and all the friends he may have shared permissions with, use /UnTrust all.
