    So I was thinking. We have to find a way to get the 700+ who signed up here at the forums active and posting. Its really much been just us admins/root admins going back and fourth on a topic, and then it goes dead until it's bumped a day after by someone.

    It would be really nice if we can get a steady amount of people from the server posting here on the forums. If done, they can see what we are up to, follow updates on the servers, participate in another one of Ck's "get money for the servers by giving him a dollar and picking a number between 1 and 1000." contests, and the likes.

    I'm just saying it would be pretty sweet having this forum filled with at least 20 more people to talk between and not just 3 people every other half hour. It will also help us establish a better relationship with the players, and the ability to get to know what kind of people frequent the servers that aren't just mic spammers, but possibly someone that can help better them.

    If you support this and want to help (Don't know how we are going to go about this, its still being thought out by myself), And get these forums active again, post.

    Im going to put a few ideas up on the poll. Its multiple choice, so if you see a couple you like, go ahead and chiggity-check them.

    I'm open to suggestions as of now. Speak freely, admins and players of the Plague Fest empire. This could be another step to making the players and our time on the servers more fun and a little more active.

    i am down with the art contest and videos and movies but wee need more active members

    maybe server events like kill 100 zombie in 20 mins for reserved slots are something

    We are not doing the free admin thing. Everything else though is good.

    I can make Sprays witch every Admin / player could use...

    what if you made the admin that was given different powers, votekick, voteban 1 hour, single map vote, multi map vote
    a small amount of power that they would not be able to abuse.
    votekick would require 50% of the people to accept, voteban would require 75% of the people to accept.
    I personally think if we gave that with the reserved slot, we would get more people to purchase it.

    Its not like the free admin is going to be theirs for good, ck.
    This is probably one of the most well thought out ideas with supporting ideas that mesh perfectly with it. I think it's worth a try.

    what about a you get to abuse ck power privledge? I mean you get to abuse a abuser! WTF could be more fun than that. Oh and your immune to him lol to make it more entertaining.

    its because free admin is unfair to the paying admins....
  9. May 27, 2008
    A few days to a week of free admin is nothing. Plus you don't hear anyone complaining.
  10. Mar 16, 2008
    I don't see free admin making any paying admin mad if you don't give too much power. as long as paying admins still have more power I think they would be fine with it.
  11. May 27, 2008
    I have supporters. :grin:

    See, it's worth a shot.

    Umm a lot of servers offer free admin for a month to high scorers on their servers. I think its an excellent idea and it might get more people into the server.

    I should leave my computer on 24/7 with automated responses to make everyone smile.

    heres a suggestion...

    after i get my huge payday (in jan.) and purchase 2 lobsters fresh from delivery.... i will put up the vid of Lobster Wars. win or lose, they both get eaten.

    tell me that won't attract forum visits.
  16. Nov 14, 2008

    sounds like a winner to me
  17. Dec 28, 2007
    if you keep the rubber bands on their claws we could have endless lobster wars! :thumbsup:

    i say we submit our own versions of cakefarts.
    if you have no idea what i'm talking about, go to http://cakefarts.com
    or, for a shorter and similar version of cakefarts, try http://puddingfarts.com !
    i'm certain we can find a way to make this all not so explicit. you know... just bum shots... like pudding farts.
