    So nothing changed and there has apparently been "progress".

    Nothing changed - we have 21/22 mods+.
    Shame that no one played on GMOD deathrun since its release.

    Less than 5 players are on MC consistently.[​IMG]

    I'd be more consistent with being on the MC servers, but, without exception, I've only ever seen 0 players on in the times I have launched minecraft in the past 2-3 weeks.
    I'll probably be on create for a bit sometime later this month to try and make some more AoD maps, though I'm starting to run out of space with the area I've been building in (which is why most of the more recent maps have been so small), though at present, I've already expended my Minecraft inspiration on a map (that flopped).

    I would be occupying myself a bit more with the mob gamemode for AoD, sheerly because this distinct lack of players doesn't give me much other choice on there, but we'll have to really expand the available options for mob because most maps are starting to feel mostly the same between each other (and limitations on what gimics I can and can't get away with aren't doing any favors here, even if they do save me the touble of making doomed maps sometimes).

    I don't know what's suddenly caused this massive player count drop, but if we don't deal with it soon enough, it's just going to perpetuate itself even more by eliminating what little freshness our servers still have.
    And I will acknowledge that our current drastic player lows are a perpetuation (to some degree) of our past low player issue.

    I'm now considering using Fraps to actually get my youtube going just so I can revitalize AoD (and maybe other ER servers), though I imagine much of our old player base may return when we get that SMP live.

    Apart from that, it seems we're mostly held together just by small events, and the ongoing Mafia games we have here.

    We had an admin meeting today, again, I am not sure if we actually posted anything from the last one, and not quite sure what I can talk about from this one.

    The matters you addressed, Catco, were discussed during the meeting, they aren't being ignored, however what to do is something else.

    Don't know if we will write a post on this, or what happening, but we are aware and working on this the best we can.

    I'm gonna work on making videos to post on youtube and hopefully gain us all an audience, and I imagine that if I maybe have some basic recording events (like just for doing AoD or RoF), that could help with both the videos and maybe bring a resurgence of older players.
    The only problem with the event thing is just having the older players join in, but other than that, it could be a huge boost, given the situation.

    For this, I may as well join the ER Discord group(s), since it may actually become a bit of a necessity for the above projects.
    I will appear as Frostina in Discord, #4234.

    Write a post about the Admin meeting. Let us know. I think that the Minecraft servers need some love considering the lack of players joining the servers. I know that you guys are doing your best, but I'm certain that things can be better than what this Community is in right now.

    I'll talk to the rest and see if we can get out a post. We got recaps from both meetings, so should not be too hard.
