    Shut it. End of story.

    I see where you are coming from, but if I am being completely honest, I don't think right now the capability of the server improving quickly will happen for a while. I mean, earlier there was 0-1 players online, I check now and there is 12 players. When you think about the amount of new players that join OPBlocks and actually stay, it really is an extremely low percentage.

    Now we get to the main part. The biggest issue I find is capability. You see servers that are succeeding, getting hundreds, some even thousands of players DAILY because of one main thing, capability within their team. Here on OPBlocks, you have 1 developer, yourself, JustACookie and another admin not named (I think at least). Now the capability of what each of these management positions is debatable. From the players point of view, we see some doing more work in certain areas than others, making the pressure on their shoulders a lot heavier. Now when you think about the amount of effort being put into increasing player count, is little-to-none. Sure, you are adding and considering suggestions for the server, but are they what is going to get the player count spiking again to new players and not the active members of this community? Not really.

    Straight forward, we need more people in administrative positions. Not going to lie, when I was staff, I asked Alex (trkey) if he wanted me to fix the forums and make it better, but the manager at the time didn't answer when consulted. The more weight you evenly share between larger quantities of administrative positions, allows for improvement in playerbase.

    Not only this but advertisement, sure you have, what, 4-5 small YouTubers uploading, but that is your only source of advertising. What happen to getting players to vote and make you go up on server lists? What happen to doing giveaways on twitter? Even considering doing invite rewards.

    But yeah, I got a headache and I am sick so I'm gonna stop there. But I would seriously start considering this and other major suggestions.

    If you do play on the server, tell me your ign, my igns are eSyrup, Pansexualism, Lefky, 5jv, and SARmaster126. If you do play on the server you would tell me your name, if you don’t, you clearly don’t play. Also, why would you ever not care of the server, the server isn’t literally going to poop. If you were a player on the server, you would care.

    Hate on me or whatever IDRC but i think the staff should start from the basic again, i am not saying any of the staff are bad but just start from the basic and start making changes to the server.This is my opinion " It like rn you guys are trying to revive a dead person, and no mater how much you try nothing will change. so i suggest taking a step back or smt. becuase for now i think i am one of the very few people that are still playing this sever. Maybe try actually making the server good first before hiring any youtuber. becuase if the server is not good and a popular youtuber joins the server, it won't survive, sooner or later the player base will just drop to 0-37 again. Ik you guys are running out of ideas but maybe try to stop everything you are doing for now and start fixing the problems the server have or what the server needs than thinks of ways to help the server/ get ideas. As i said there is no point trying to just dish in players into the server and hoping the player base will continue surviving it just won't work. Stop thinking of how to get players and start making the server better. E.g. making more stuff, solving bugs and others. An example of this is when Crainer join the server, ik it was a long time ago but from what i heard Opblocks paid him to play on this server but he did not played the full time acording to the contract, like even though he had like 3 more month or smt left he quit. this is what i meant, the server to him is not good and that probs cause his views to go down and i think he found nothing fun on the server to do. This is probrably why he quit even before his contract ended. another example is like imagine this server is a theme park with only 1 ride in the entire theme park, if somehow you get 10k people and they all come to your theme park, ask your self this question, do you think the 10k poeple will come back to your theme park again. Probs No! And because of this some of the best staff member are getting less inactive or have quit. (Not going to name anyone)

    And again, if you want to hate me say bad stuff about me or what idc so stop wasting your time. idc about my spelling as long as poeple can understand that all i need.
    Wether you take this advise or not if your choice but please try to stop thinking of getting players.
    Please Don't ban me, i am just stating the fact and trying to help the server

    right, so from a v1 players perspective it's obvious that this server is at it's worst right now. I just went on the server and there is only 7 people. Either delete this server or actually push out updates that isn't so p2w based. I shouldn't have to pay for something that doesnt even work properly. I know alex can pull in bigger youtubers if he really wanted to. He could def afford a 3m+ YouTuber to play on here but he doesn't because he doesnt care about whats actually happening on the server and instead he just cares about making money at the end of the day. As of right now nothing major is going to happen because people keep buying stuff from the store so Alex doesn't really have a reason to make any changes since he is making money. The staff team shouldn't even waste time on the server when it averages around 10-20 people a day.
