    What do you think is the most important thing(s) meepcraft needs to do if it wants to become a more popular server?

    (Obviously being unblacklisted would be helpful; let’s not just focus on this)

    Honestly I think we're pretty solid at this point besides not being on the latest version, it's just up to us to recommend and spread awareness for the server. Can't complain about having 25 people online when you don't mention it to friends! I would love if we got the forums more active and mentioned it to new players, I used to love the website more than the actual server.

    It needs a new owner, to be honest.

    a new mini game probably, something that could keep players playing for a while

    even with new players, some of them would just like to play games rather than doing jobs or towny

    something that keeps them to stay would be nice

    I just looked on the meepcraft facebook page and each post in the past year have had on average 2 likes... but then back in 2015 there were 500+ likes on posts. and each post was just mainly posting the link to the meeptimes. nice, but we could do with more social media boosting, do a few giveaways of sorts (that always grabs attention). back in the day I saw on the facebook page someone would post daily/weekly questions relating to meepcraft the server (meepcraft trivia I believe it was called), and then give some meebles or whatever to the person who got the answer right. you don't even have to give meebles, giving items or special perks idk. It would just motivate more people to play. on the instagram page you could do something super mainstream (lol) something like: "like and share this post with your friends to be in the draw to win blahblahblah"


    additionally, seeing as we don't have any media staff now, staff could host a competition for all members of meep to publicize meep in some way or another. it could be like you do a drawing that advertises meep, or make a video, create an animation or do a real life skit (lol) . this would get a lot of people on board surely and there could be prizes of some sort as well. then these advertisements, with the approval of the person who made it, could be posted on the meep social media.

    I don't know if these are done regularly, but events on the server would be super beneficial. something like doing special events during major holidays like christmas, halloween, easter etc etc whatever. I see some people hosting some events of their own but it would be great if the server could do it too. even just spontaneous events. I remember a few years ago, a staff member set up an event in creative where we had to get into teams of 4 people, then each group would get a plot and we had to build a new staff statue for reggles (the reward was the statue being used :eek:). building competitions like these were super fun, it brought so many people together and I remember so many people taking part.

    I don't know much about improving the actual meepcraft gameplay like towny, since I haven't been on much to explore the new things but by the looks of the updates in the meeptimes I think it's making a steady move.

    dark mentioned a new minigame, I think that's a great idea. or even just work on bringing those old games back like infected because I remember a lot of people playing that back in the day. I loveeeddd the minigames when I first came. that's what made me stay. and I'm sure that's what made other peopel stay too. I loved especially tntrun. do we still have tntrun? boosting up the minigames would be great. there use to be events run in the minigames like boomo, does that still happen too? I see from meeptimes a lot of work has been going into jobs and towny and that's great but I think we now need to steer a little onto the minigames side if you have not already.

    sure, meepcraft won't be exactly the same as back in the day because the majority of players who use to play 24/7 have now left the server and probably don't exactly play minecraft. but that doesn't mean this server is dying, there are so many more people to welcome onto here! doing something special for the new players to make them stay would be great. idk what but it should be something that captivates them to stay. maybe like a daily reward for logging on every day? then when you have many consecutive log ons you get some special reward? or some rewards when you play for consecutive hours? (bad for eyesight and health but whatevs lol) the rewards don't have to be just meebles (if it ruins the economy) but like i said somewhere before it can be some small items that could help a new player out. this is different to the voting concept, because voting wants you to click a link and fill in the captcha which boosts up meepcraft on the different minecraft server websites. so I think both daily rewards and voting would be super beneficial. voting is great now btw with the vote keys I love it

    it's not like Minecraft is dying, there are still 1000s of players playing on other servers you probably know which ones I'm talking about. so it definitely is possible to get meepcraft back up there with 100s of players like we use to have. just gotta put the foot off the brake and onto the accelerator to make the server shine like it use to!

    sorry for the long post I just absolutely loved meepcraft back when I first joined and I want other new players to feel the same when they join now.

    Thank you for such a well thought out comment. I’ve loved this server for quite a few years and share in your want for it to be able to give people the same joy it still gives me to this day :)

    The management needs to find people who are willing to help and improve the server, not just moderate it.

    As well as huge improvements on the Media team itself. It's dead. The server needs social media activity. Videos and GFXs that would pull in the people.
