So, for all intents and purposes, I died and I have came back to life.
Nothing pains me more to see this and see where we are today:
Even a fraction of that would be a start.
I was looking back through the archives of my screenshots and for fun checked to see how many of the old time players were on recently... and to my surprise, quite a few.
Something about that strikes something with me, like there is still an ember.
The past while I've just been working it up, thinking on how we can get this going again.. What got us to that point before?
Was it because I was able to afford descent advertising? Was it the relentless PMC postings? I don't really know.
What I do know is that I see a bunch of no-name, genericraft servers that have hundreds of players on, but what have they done?
Those genericraft servers may have the big numbers, but do they have a community? Probably not.
So, starting today, in this thread, I need YOUR input, and I need people to logically explain what needs to be done, and how it will help.
As I have said before, I will never let this die... (even if I die, the server will hopefully keep auto-renewing itself through my paypal... but I hope I don't die anytime soon!)
And SO, the revive begins.
-Staff re-organization, preferably all active staff or people who wish to be involved with the revive. (Skype, etc)
-User input on this thread on any major current issues. (Or use of the github issue list)
-A google doc page dedicated to investigation of other servers. (Where does their traffic come from, what is a key hook feature, etcetc)
-Did the server crash? Post your timezone and when it happened so I can look into it.
Want (Mostly need):
-To fix any broken or malfunctioning plugins, or completely re-do all our plugins.. TBD.
-Re-balance PVP aspects, or make they more suitable for new players.
-Re-do donations perks
This is not a cheesy generic 'lets do dis' post, but a true LETS DO THIS POST.
I've waited this long because I was tired of disappointing people with false hope, I have the time, and there is no better time than now.
Let's figure out what it takes to get it done, there is always a way.
Thank you to everyone who has sent inspirational messages.
