Ferrets is right about the fact that going to a new map now is just a delay of execution. The biggest strain on servers is the amount of people online simultaniously, the surface of the map as a second. The former is still increasing and the latter will again increase rapidly with a new map.
A more permanent solution is preferred.
EDIT: We might also have to wait till after Notch has changed the save file format (which is the first thing he is about to do). I doubt it will be backwards compatible.

And I would prefer to be honest. I don't really like the idea of Stunt using his position as leverage to change the server to exactly how he wants it. That will leave lots of people unsatisfied and damage the community. If his computer can't support us, then we need a solution, not a very temporary fix.
Still though I think a outside server is the only solution long term because eventually we will be faced with the same problem as now sooner or later.
Plus and bandwith and data bottleneck that causes lag would no longer be a issue.
But he hasn't , this is a discussion not a list of things stunt is going to do.
And yeah its not really fair on him atm if he can't use his own computer, if that was me it would drive me insane.
Blocks and junk that people spawn would not be there in the first place as part of the original map though.
No, but compared to the 64 layers of blocks in the ground, the few spawned structures on the surface aren't going to do much. If it did, the Dwarven lands could be considered a black hole due to all the underground structures (less blocks since that part of the map was created).

I need Obsidian and TNT (for the fort battles that I am planning, and the foundation of the floating island will be made of Obsidian), I can make do without everything else. I'd be up for restricted spawning, I haven't done that much work yet so I'd be up for a new map.
“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
Welll seeing as stunt can keep on doing this, does anyone else have a capacity to host a server? so we might have two servers instead of one
A quick google check only reveals that people are hosting, but most of their prices are specific to the amount of memory / player limit you want the server to have, so you have to contact them directly.
