I got two rustservers now and i kind of started to work on a community /website along with the servers. I havent been doing it for a long time yet, but the fact is that the players on the server really seems to be loving what i do. I arrange alot of events on the server like Treasurehunts, Raidable treasurehouses. A lot of different arenas with different type of gear. This all has resulted in a group of 20-30 people always coming back to the server. Many of them has been there for 2 months now and the amount of visitors keeps growing. Since its only a 40 slot server i now got us another 100 slot server and installed all the plugins we didnt want on our mainserver.
So since this thread is for serverowners i got a few questions actually.
Do you arrange events? what kind of events?
Do your players seem to like you and respect you?
Do you have a website? may i see it to maybe get some more ideas to my own gamingsite?
My website is http://www.rustaddicts.com - i know there is a lot of improvements to do, but right now its working pretty well for the purpose it has.
Im thinking about adding a facebook page to it and some other basicstuff wich are very easy to add to a wordpress site.
Im also openminded to hear your thoughts about the site, what could be better? what does it miss?
I know one thing, and its that the language is bad, and a lot of misspellings, but hey i speak finnish, swedish fluid, so the english is a bit limited but understandable : )
By the way! when i arrange the events im always there with the camera in hand : http://www.rustaddicts.com/last-nites-arena-events/
