For Julian . Possible Solution to the Empty servers and acti

Post by billythekid1 » Fri Nov 23, 2012 1:57 pm

The Problem: Not enough active Players, thus empty BF3 server. Ok this will be long so just try to read...here we go.

The Recruitment Program [3 months]
-The Goal is to recruit 20 active new BF players over a 3 month period, that are also planning to play BF4 (or even considering it).
-These players are to be recruited from either our server or a non-clan public server.
-We need at least 3 recruiters, volunteers are welcome.
-Recruiters are to get minimal TS admin powers.
-The Job of the recruiter is to invite the player who is interested in joining the community. Invite them to TS or to install it, talk with them a little, give them wrap about the community and the admins, then have them sign up on the forums. Next the recruiter will have to clean up their friends list on battlelog so they can add new players, once added, ask them to join the platoon #1 or #2. Encourage the new players to play often to earn their member tags if they want (we'll get to tags later).
Attitude Change
-Like me, I RAGE, whine, cry all day, and it's a terrible habit, and I need to change this to get more people in here. We all need to change our attitudes on how we game, our goal is to fill the server and make the new recruits welcome, no matter how terrible your team is, you stay and stick it out till the end. If you dont want to play, stay AFK in the server to help boost population. All members should stay in the server if they like the map or not. If we come together and be ultra nice to new recruits, this is gonna be easy.
CLEAN UP
-IMO admins should go through the list of over 600 members on the forums and contact these people. Email them and give them 1 week to reply, if no reply after a week, terminate them immediately. All banned members should be terminated from the site. Next Admins should look through the platoons on battlelog, right now there are two. Contact them to see if they are playing and active, if no reply, kick them from the platoon, if they come back, we recruit them.
Help Swanny and Specialist
-Our fearless leaders are the most important people keeping this community afloat. W/o them no servers or TS. During our recruiting program, all current active members should help Specialist and Swanny financially. Next all active members should strive for VIP (5$ minimum) to help server cost. Even donating 1$/month helps (this will not get you VIP). We can also help Specialist afk in the server to get it going when we are at work or school...Note: too many AFKs is not a good idea.
-Main goal is to keep the leaders and admins happy.
TAGS
I am proposing a simple new tag system, this is how they would look.
[117A]-Is an Admin
[117V]-Is a VIP member {no admins allowed}
[117M]-Is a member
[117n]-is a new recruit or new community member
-You must earn the [117M] tag, the player must join TS and hangout with us for a month to earn the Member tags. If they decide to be a VIP member while a recruit they will wear this tag [117X].
-This tag system will also be implemented in TS as well. Admins do not have to enforce this system it is completely voluntary.
-ONE does NOT have to have tags to play with us.
-You may also wear your clan tag when playing with us, and you can be a VIP member. All we ask is to be a little active.
-Remember this is a community and not a clan, this is why the recruitment program only lasts for 3 months. Imagine it like a pure adrenaline shot to boost morale and player activity.
-We want to encourage all to join TS when playing BF3!!
Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Thought this was the correct thing to do for you, sorry that your post went of topic bud.

Oh sorry Julian the server rank dropped from position 300 ish down to over 1000 in a month. what was changed a month ago on the server that might have caused this? and maybe we can revert it and get the rank back up and the players back in.

It's a number of things whirly. It can't be narrowed down so easily. If it could, don't you think we would fix that problem? We're not idiots here. The first hit we took was the server favorites wipe. That alone made us lose the majority of our regulars. It was a battlelog problem which they fixed but made everyone re-favorite servers... I don't need to explain to you the issue there. The second hit we took was the change to the quick-match system, our pride and joy. Quick-matchers usually sum up to 40-60% of the server once it gets legs, it is so substantial that without it the server would rarely if EVER start. So because of this we need to modify our server settings to allow it to even accept quick-match joiners. These settings include the amount of players allowed, which means we lose our adaptive server plugin, something not only quick-match, but normal server-browsers look for, a close to cap player count. This is just the beginning whirly, there's more to why we have lost our following including problems within our community... not only drama but plain ol' lack of activity. Honestly, it's really simple. The server, in order to start, needs at least 4 people in TS willing to kick it off. Today that is pretty rare. See the difference between today and then?
