I don't think anyone is seriously trying to take your crown away Parva and if 07 was a problem then we wouldn't all keep coming back would we, especially if there are other Lazytown servers available. I too feel that you take this a little too seriously and too personally as comments made are lighthearted and not out of hatred as you suggest. No one is going to play on 07 if they hate it. And regarding the NUTTER 'community server', the intent is exactly that, for use by the community and not what you obviously think. We dont care if it's full or not or who plays what on it. FYI it was set up on the backlash of Fragmasters server being unmanaged with people sitting in spawn and having no admins around and nothing to do with MP07 or you! As I said previously FM have sorted themselves out and the 'Lazytown community' is still strong regardless of where they might play. Personally I think one area I feel you keep tripping on is that this is a Lazytown community not a Multiplay community. Always has been and always will be whether MP run the map or not. We are fans of the MAP, end of story.
The issue is straightforward, 07 just doesn't have the popularity it used to have but the reason/s for this seems unknown or at least not proved. One thing I do think puts new players off is the way they are sometimes treated on 07. While some older members can generally say and do what they want, new players find themselves target for abuse and impatience. Some comments already made in this thread suggest some people here don't like new players (noobs) and don't cope well with change. While that mentality and attitude exists then 07 will lose as many new players as it attracts. I've seen proof of that plenty of times and I'm sure there's people here that have seen this too. I've got plenty of friends that are old GTFO regulars and new friends I've made at Fragmasters that don't play on 07, unless they have 'friends' playing on there already.
While so many moan about FM or any other server for that matter (GTFO got the same abuse before that) they don't realise that playing on other servers means you make more FRIENDS that enjoy the same map and those friends join you when they see you playing online, regardless of what 'server' you're playing are on. How often do you send invites out to fill the server?
If you want to try fill up 07 try joining other Lazytown servers and make some friends, be patient with noobs (I don't always find it easy I'll be honest) and quit with the bullshit Multiplay allegiance thing i.e. refusing to play anywhere else. If people continue to treat new players like shit, moan constantly, contribute nothing other than complaints, make no effort to bring new players in and aren't willing to change anything in an effort to improve the situation then good luck.
Personally and I've said it 100 times, I don't give a shit what server I play on and never have. I play on the servers that my friends play on like so many others and if I've got more friends playing on other server then that's where I go.
At the end of the day Parva, you are the Multiplay Community Rep so filling the Multiplay servers that you're responsible for is your responsibility. We do help you already by bringing new players to 'your' server, running a forum and website, organizing competitions, arranged games against other Lazytown teams in the past, post links to this forum in youtube vids, send out game invites regularly, post in the Steam Community group, announce events, build fresh lazytown maps that you don't even bother to try and spend more time on your server than you do so please don't make out that you DO IT ALL because in reality that's far from the truth. We all know who makes an effort and those that do little other than complain but we don't take names and frankly dont care. At least you do do something which I wish I could say was the same for others.
My personal gripe...
More commonly these days though, you turn up for an hour a few nights a week to play but moan when you're playing, moan on the forum, moan at players, moan when anyone says they have a problem and moan when people ask for change. Considering you're an admin you might want to reconsider not changing maps without a vote, scrambling teams teams without asking anyone, restarting the server when a team is about to take the last cap and ragequitting when your losing as I imagine a few don't respect that kind of attitude. If you want to help yourself and the community DO SOMETHING and contribute some positivity. In short, cheer the fuck up a bit, we are your friends and above all remember it's a GAME
Not much more I can say. I'm far from perfect but at least I'm honest.
We are all friends here after all. None of us want so see 07 be any less popular than it is. I appreciate what you do and have done over the years as I expect do most and I for one appreciate the support not only for the server but for many other things.
