Pull staff from your community instead of random people from Facepunch.
You don’t know anyone here. How can you trust us? Use people you know and are positive will do a great job. Don’t hire people for admin.
bad idea to hire random people. Play on your own server for a while get regular players that will care for the server they will apply to help you out on their own. If a player likes a server he will support it in anyway he can.
Agreed, build your community. It takes time but don’t give up.
