Looking for fun PVE server to join after launch

I’m a total noob at this game. But I plan on slowly getting better. I’d like to join a PVE server with likeminded players, something where my stuff doesn’t get stolen constantly when I’m offline and people generally keep to themselves unless doing some team raids on NPC camps. Mostly, I just want to be left alone until I’m decent at the game. I’d rather have my base on multiplayer server when that day comes so I don’t have to grind it all out again.

Also, do community servers all get reset every so often? If so, that’s something I’d want to avoid.
