It's not about being MY server. A preview question to see if there is interest. Regards.

My server your sever does not make any difference, first the freedom of speech where you draw the line ?  Senseless kick/ban but you dont report them ( thats what you told me in another topic )  Rules can be modify but its impossible to make everyone happy.

Some day a frustrated player will try to attack this server even if you have the best protection, for me its not whorth it in $$ and time.

Regards.

Re: New Server

Monopoly creates abuse. The new server could be subsidized by players who would influence any changes on the server. The need, as you can see, is because the current state: 13 for yes, 8 for no.

Re: New Server

Of course you won't get banned for trying to raise BF42 to hopefully better and new heights.

But stop counting votes. Just start working. We only have 80 BF42 related servers running right now - bring your idea to life!

The survey does not determine any steps on my part. That's your far-fetched guess. If things are going well, all you have to do is enjoy it Regards <3

How many of these servers are empty? We need quality servers, not more servers that are like all the others.

Rinjo, if you want your server to succeed, it has to stand out. Think of something that could make it special.

Re: New Server

I think it was irony on Maurits' part. I have very good memories with SIMPLE and apart from one person - everything is really ok.  Some modifications are coming to simple servers + today there was no hacker attack. Excellent!


+ edit - there were also no senseless kicks for "chat spam" smile Thank you for the changes.

Re: New Server

Yes, it was pure irony. However the "bring your idea to life" was no joke, and I thought u wanted to do something with this vote, and not just showcase that  there are 14 votes yes' (including my own) to a server that might be better than the current Simple server(s) - because if so, it's just empty words and "hot air" driven by your irritation with Ferd. But I would really much like to see your paradise version where every single player is happy with all of the management crew and admins.

Re: New Server

My apoligies , Rinjo.
I honestly thought that the start of this topic with:
"New server: A server with all the necessary security against unregistered DDoS attacks ( SOCKS proxies and SSL connections ) With freedom of speech and no senseless rules. Just answer yes or no."
- Was because you wanted to create a secure server with superb management, and not just a (meaningless) vote. I guess I missunderstood something, and now I see that it was a vote about who would contribute to such server - but then I don't understand why you mate it anonymous. Anyway, GL with whatever will happen

Better the devil you know, sometimes.

I don't know how long you've been here Rinjo, but I can say there's been a massive improvement since new administration took over.  Now, everybody is accountable for their actions, including admin.  Sure, nothing is perfect and there's always room for improvement, but relatively speaking, it's not been long since new admin took over... It's a work in progress.  Give it time and voice your concerns through the right channels.

One of the main set backs that slows things down, is that the server owner is almost always absent.  This mainly affects things like DDOS and anything that requires ftp access to the server (MODS!!!).  AFAIK the server does have a level of DDOS protection.

However, I do agree that there should be a new server with a new location, under the same management, with a more barebones approach regarding server settings, (hz) mods etc.  There's definitely something going on with this server... jumping pings, simultaneous lag spikes and erratic hit registration.

Sometimes, less is more.

BTW: If you're looking for a team to join fun wars now and then, conquer might be able to accommodate you.

+1

For this reason, I decided that there is no point in creating something new. The division of the community with so few players is a shot in the foot. An unnecessary procedure. A possible side effect is the big fuss I caused behind the scenes. I hope that it will contribute to good changes and I will not become a hated player.
