Ha! I had a similar thought.

We need to bring back that Miss Chrisie or whatever that Catt drove away (one of the many :p ), and name the server Miss Chrisie's Wild West or some shit. Make her an admin and call it a day. Dipshit guys will flock to the server once they see a woman in charge.

Well if the goal is to attract assholes:

Just saw one that said "Semi Active Admins". That might be appropriate...

Nobody knows?

Wait! Just found one that makes sense:
Community Servers are Basically Official servers except they're hosted by players.
Modded are the same except the owners have changed aspects of the game ( Craft time, drops, ect, )


Just realized that doesn't explain the ones running Oxide.

I have no fucking idea.

When I first wiped it back to vanilla, it showed up in Community. Not sure when or why it moved back to Mod.

I have come to the conclusion that having a popular server is VERY time consuming. You have to have a decent sized team of dedicated admins pretty much around the clock. Cheaters are constant. People play on servers they know are being admin'd. The server we are on now is starting to ask for donations. And that is their long term plan. Hire admins, get donations, start more servers, etc.

But again, a busy server seems to be a full time job. As soon as there are hackers going unchecked, the population goes away.

So, my proposal would be something like: gather admins to run the hour by hour stuff. Then, we police the admins. Let them find/ban the hackers. Keep the community happy, etc. We monitor the admins and make sure they aren't spawning stuff for friends, etc. If we advertise for admins, I think you'd get a lot of people interested. That builds a small player base in itself. Then, I don't know.

So, I take it we are all agreed that at least Oxide and it's slash commands would be desirable?

I believe the majority of players use /who and /location at the minimum.

Why would you ever not use the slash/commands? Does it open up exploits?

Not sure about exploits. I guess?

I do know there's one line of thinking that everything should be realistic. No commands to see location, who's on, or get starter kits because that's not realistic in a world full of red wolves and bears guarding highly radioactive sites that don't affect them, but kill humans in seconds unless they pop miracle pills... Let's not even mention the invisible and invulnerable people restocking these sites.

Our server has been down since last night.

Or did we run out of days?

It has? I did the Steam update last night around midnight and put back in oxide. It looks good on the console end.

I'm doing another Steam update now to make sure.

Got it! I'm not sure exactly what final order of operations was the voodoo to make it work right again, but it's workin'.

Are we ready to wipe again, so we can try getting a population again?

Just logged on, and my house had decayed, and nobody bothered to loot anything, so I'm sure the server has been untouched.
