    Where is everyone?

    Post  XScopeX on Mon Mar 28, 2011 2:58 am

    The server has been dead for nearly 2 weeks now, the most people I have seen on is 4, and usually when I join im alone or with one random stranger... So, where is everyone?

    I haven't been on so much lately; family things to deal with.

    18 bans on march 27th, 15 of them were burly. We are trying to get more people on the server but lately bumping the thread does nothing more than cause 5 bans 5 one time players and if we are lucky a regular. MCserverlist has also been really bad lately and we have been jumping all over the place when it comes to rankings. All I can say is if you want more people bump the thread.

    Thing is, it does no good to get members just to ban them.

    The best way to boost our MCServerList status is to idle, then when our server is checked we get boosted up the list because we have players online. Whenever I'm on the server I'm bumping the thread with renders so there's at least 10 noobs on, but that's the best I can do.

    I prefer to have 20 regulars and 1000 banned people over 10 regulars and 10000 banned people.

    We're not gaining anything, really, by just banning people, other than preventing a future problem. But we will always have griefers, so you're not REALLY speeding up the ban that's already coming, because there will always be hundreds more waiting.

    What we need is to gain good, high-quality, skilled regulars, not members who stay for a bit, make crappy structures, then leave, or get banned.

    And I step forth to accept this challenge. But really, as long as 1 in 30 randomers becomes a regular, the server will be fine with a healthy population Smile

    As you guys should know by now, I haven't been on due to internet problems.

    Sad to hear the numbers are dwindling though :(

    If you want more people bump the thread like burly has been doing, eventually we will get enough regulars. Heres a link.
