So over the past couple of months a lot of players and some staff have left or become inactive. At the time, we only have a few regulars who join the server which is roughly 7-10 people. The server is loosing a lot of popularity and is becoming very inactive. The one thing I noticed is that the server has no genre and is mostly just a free build. Not going to lie, before I joined the server I hated free builds, and if I joined them it was to grief them. We need a server genre like a towny, PvP etc. I believe that if we turn the server into a town based world and add in factions (Which would encourage PvP) we would get a boost in players joining the server. Every town could have taxes they need to pay to whoever owned the town, everything bought would have tax, just some general ideas. With this we could improve spawn by using the Citizens plugin to add NPC's which can do a variety of things. (Blacksmiths, healing, Quests, Guards and magic) We could make shops more realistic by adding NPC's, we could improve the economy with this because at the moment players get money but never really use it. With bukkit and Spout, the list goes on. What I'm saying is that the server needs a new look. Not just by changing the maps and names. We need a new genre, new maps and new plugins.
