We need to populate our server 3 to get more money from the adds that are on there on AVG we get like £30+ with the server 3 going too, which covers TF2 #2 and #3 pretty much so rather than get rid we need to make something work.

The best thing would be for some regs/members to get it going as it is but its just not happening so we need to attract...

I'm thinking some nice jump maps like we used to have with a few fun maps and customs and maybe some modes like dodgeball/saxton hale as vote options modes/maps, i know amy and flyrag and other mumble users like these jump maps so its worth ago! also trains you for soldier and demo and scout.

I think this can be done with some work/plugins

We need to discuss some options to try populate it!?

What you think all?

Also just a little note/spoiler.....................................................

Hidden: 
I am thinking of updating our forums to V Bulletin i have been working on transferring our database "which is getting there" after asking our red admins do some edits to posts etc and lots of other work to help with the move "maybe".

we also need to use £200 of our paypal balance which will get us a license and a theme.

This is just a note not an official post! as it might not happen, its not guaranteed etc...  
The funds we have and the donations we get seem to be slowing, so now i mentioned this big move maybe this will help you all think about populating #3 and making sure we hit our donation goal. this will make it happen faster Smile...

For those that don't know V Bulletin is the same as steam forums. Google it Smile

prophunt or Saxton Hale are a fair bit of fun, but as with every other mod/jump map they're a thing you do for an hour or 2, but you never know people could flock to them in big enough numbers and for that reason it is worth a try.

You'd probably be best off sticking with just one mod/mode, and allowing a community to build on it. No idea what one to use though. Are there any sites that list the most popular ones?

Me, personally, I love Prop Hunt and Jump (a little bit of saxton aswell). But you could also make it koth_harvest 24/7 or something like that, those servers get a lot of players normaly

It needs 10 ppl to GET it going, autoscramble to KEEP it going, and "#3" removed from description. Server is fine otherwise


P.S. don't be fooled into thinking a special game mode, custom map, or wacky mod will "somehow" fill it up. It won't, guaranteed, 100%.



Edit: anatomy of starting up a random server:

1. O look, 0/24 players. What map is on? Wacky_custom_neverPlayed map. Oh ya...totally diggin' it..NOT! next server!
2. O look, 1/24 players. What map is on ? Dustbowl. Nice. tho...1/24 ... stinks of bot/plugin. I bet is really 0/24. Naa...not gonna join
3. O look, 3/24 players. What map is on? propmod? what is that?..cba...next server
4. O look, 3/24 players. What map is on? Badwater. Nice. *join*.
4.1 We keep getting owned on red, badly. *ragequit* *ragequit*. 2/24...yeah...not gonna do 1v1? ...guess not...server is 1/24 again
4.2. O look, 3/24 players. Godlrush is on. Nice *join*. Good 15 minute round. 5/24 players. Good 10 minutes round. 12/24 players. Whooo...is filling up!
4.3. 20/24 players, gg. New map. Why do we get owned so badly? 15/24. The other team has dominations left and right. 10/24. Autobalance suks, it put me on the  looser team and i can't switch back. 5/24. Server is dieing, should bail. 1/24. 0/24.

I'd like to suggest making Server 3 have Highlander mode (one of each class).

I find it a little more competetive than normal but also really fun because it encourages teamwork, "Oh look, I can't be that 4th sniper on the team and the medic slot is left, I guess I might as well heal".

This, and I'll play it quite a bit. It's a pretty good idea, but a lot of the time people might get upset and not being the fourth sniper on the team and just leave. It might be worth a try, I'll help you populate it too.

so what we want on it jumps maps ? highlander with rtd Shocked  hide and seek ? don't want to spend 3 hours on it to be told i put the wrong thing on.

also dont think the server would work well with mode changes so needs to be one picked and stick to it for awhile.
