It's happened again, just extremely fast this time. We've been doing servers for like seven years at this point and they always fizzle out but this time was the quickest. It's incredibly unfortunate as I was really excited about the server making a return and having a community again. This was a pretty astonishingly resounding failure in every way you can actually fail to run a server. It's been two years since our previous run and maybe things changed, CW has been getting decreasingly popular and I imagine it's been dropping off especially hard as of late as I've been seeing some of the regularly full bigger servers struggle for players.

As of now, I think there's a few days left in the server so it'll stay up presumably but this is pretty much a DNR notice. No admins will join, I doubt anything will happen and players haven't ever been joining of their own volition anyway so, it's dead.

How we failed:
Admin Inactivity: We're primarily to blame. We've grown up a lot in the past two years, 3-4 of us having full time jobs and the rest being in education or other commitments that take up basically all of our free time. We've not had the time to dedicate to the server

Factions and economy: We tried to exert too much control over items and scripts and ended up strangling the economy of the server, having no factions meant that players found it hard to get involved in a meaningful way and this lead to a lot of "/animidleRP" as we referred to it.

Feel free to comment below and let us know what you think as far as how badly we failed and how we could change for a hypothetical "next time"

We made it three weeks this time, maybe a little longer. This isn't the end I'd like to hope, we've still got our discord and the best part about a community is the players, now we can play actually fun games with you all ;^))

Maybe we'll give it another shot at some point.

LG Never dies.

I've never done serious rp administration so im not sure how the whole thing works, however I do believe that you guys still did a good job, everyone was just dealt an unfortunate hand, I dont really blame anyone, its hard to stay focused on doing RP, and being entirely interested with just a few players, which is really noones fault either. Things can be boring and people have OOC Lives which is understandable, dont think anyone should feel bad, work and school and wear a person out, making them less motivated, as for me of course ill stick around the community as there is no reason not to.

Err, as for suggestions I dont know much to say, im usually 100% with whatever theme we may do, I know a few people were upset that they were declined upon wanting faction characters, atleast with Fallout, it probably put people down that they were subjected to just Wastelander Town Passive RP, the most unfortunate part was probably the amount of rude players that had come around and gone. The best suggestion i could make is maybe be a little less strict, even though I dont see you guys as being too Strict.

Either way I'd love to stick around the community and be friends! Im always quite excited to see what comes next, sorry for my crappy suggestion, I didnt dislike anything personally!
