Shall i just repost my other post ?

yeh sod it lol

 

 

of course i want FP to continue, you lot are my surrogate 2nd family :P

Suggestions.

BF4 server - This game is old now in terms of release time etc people still play it and will continue to play it up until bf5/2143 comes out.

  • Rent a server.
  • small 16 player or 32 to start.
  • expand the slots as needed when we grow.

Call of Duty Servers.

  • Keep the ones that are active and drop the ones that aren't.
  • Hell keep all of them if the server load allows it.
  • This is a legacy game and will continue to serve as such until otherwise instructed by Danny etc.

Ark Server.

  • Recruit more admins.
  • no more than 3 admins.
  • Poach from other servers.

Arma 3 Exile

  • Get at least 3 ACTIVE admins.
  • Admins who aren't on at least twice a week lose their admin.

TeamSpeak

  • Reorganise the channels to suit the new community structure.

Forum and Homepage

  • Get a proper landing page sorted.
  • If your system allows it - record some footage, any footage will do.
  • Sort out a "dropbox" for members to upload their clips to.
  • Once a month post competitions with real rewards, steam keys etc for sale games nothing big unless budget allows or special event.
  • Take charge of the social media accounts and post relevant info daily.
  • Monthly video update, best frags, funny moments, tips n tricks videos etc.

Don't forget the console guys.

  • Help promote console groups.
  • Get some footage to upload to the FP YouTube channel.

 

We've a lot to do and need some serious help.

Responsible, dedicated members to be able to take charge of some of this and be managed by committee when needed. 

Those of us with talents like coding, graphics, sound etc
Ask around see if there is anyone you can help out with. Your help is *always* appreciated. 

 

Anyway those are my thoughts and ideas.

Tear it to pieces tell me what you like or hate, it doesn't matter.

Feedback is feedback. good or bad, its all useful.

 some good stuff there Adam

 

 

Forum and Homepage

  • Get a proper landing page sorted.

 

Always agree'd with this ,the forum front page has no selling point to potential new members. Brand names catch the attention 'Arma3 - Arc Survival Evolved - Battlefield - Playstation X-Box Pc' . Even if it started at the forum with condensed menu's with games in order of popularity at the top, leading onto the submenus would be more appealing.

seriously tho - how do you propose to poach from other servers?

 

you have a look at the top servers

 

https://arkservers.net/1/rank/asc

 

from this you see alot higher gather and tame etc

what do users want? fast playing or something we are missing else?

few thoughts come ot mind on .

 

How can we advertise..... another can of worms

Poaching isnt the way forward. We start doing that our reputaion will be screwed before its even started. So that is straight out the window. What we need to do is everyone in the community those who do and dont play ark need to upvote our server! We keep upvoting we keeping moving up the ranks we do that and come top people will be interested in playing our server. But we do need to look into other servers and see what makes people play there servers.

As posted on other forum topic.

I am still interesting FP-Gaming. I kind of agree with SilverRook.

But I would like to see what other members have to say them members who don't say a lot or post only now and then.

 

As for Ark we do need another Admin who plays a lot. Ark don't always need a admin but it be nice if we had one who playing a lot. I have one player in mind and will have to speak to him.

Also like to see what Ren and Michel think about it.

My Thoughts,

 

Wouldnt touch BF4 servers, we don't have the players to keep it populated (especially in mind that Battlefield 5 is due next year)

Look at current server see what is being used, reduce cod2 servers (even though not much overhead loads of empty servers are pointless)

Remove/reduce any others and also look at what we actually need in a attempt to downsize to make it easier for us to maintain both financially and hours required to maintain (we all have busy lives to lead)

Front End / Landing page is essential really.

Teamspeak tidy up I like idea of too, if we have a huge TS and not many people in it (it will look more empty)

Oh and as I have said to people. I am here to help with whatever is needed.

Yeh i use the term POACH as a shorter way of saying

"if you play on other servers tell your friends about our servers and tell them to tell their friends. Get them registered on the forums get on TS and get friendly with folk..... "
we aren't an exclusive community - obviously people that play here play elsewhere too. THIS IS HOW YOU ADVERTISE US.

Granted to help members advertise our server we need things like a proper social media platform and a good youtube channel to showcase our games and our players.

My only additional thoughts on "SERVERS" would be stay clear of EARLY ACCESS GAMES, only get servers for full retail titles that have support and are not in constant beta/alpha states as this makes it all the more difficult to maintain and run servers if its us that are actually coding them because the development of that game has halted stalled or changed direction.

but all this is by-the-by if we don't get a core membership sorted.
