I've been busy on due to Real Life, Tests (ACTs), etc
I'll be back to daily activity once I get some inspiration again for a new build idea. Pointless to just hang around on the server otherwise.
Not pointless at all There's always something to do. Tweak a design, finnish some decoration, build underground sewer system. Connect houses, expand a bigger house with a little shed, add some town occupations or a new dome with a farm. i can go on my todo list of what we want to do and little things to tweak is only growing. motivation: that's a killer though but when you have 30m to kill and there are ppl online, it's just like a roommate or something - digital company to spend the time and escape real life a little.
All I ever did when I came online really was socialise and build, but because it's become so expensive for my chunks, and 3hours per chunk just ain't cutting it, it was getting increasingly difficult to accomplish my grand ideas! I like to build large builds, and the only other way to do this is with a town, of which there aren't many active ones worth bothering. I frequent a few other servers, of which I won't name of course, and it seems that this one is kinda' behind the times of sorts, which I guess also pushes people away, but that doesn't mean to say the gang behind the server haven't done an amazing job, because they have, just to clarify. As for the socialising, well people move on and since most of the people I used to speak to on the regular stopped coming on, I too did. Not to mention I'm just so out of touch with Minecraft now because I've not been around in probably a good year or so. I regularly check the site to see who's online but there's rarely more than 1/2 members which makes me sad But in retrospect if more people had the same thought process as me now and just stuck it out instead of saying 'another day' then maybe there would be a lot more players frequenting the server. But I do agree, some form of incentive, or something to work towards would be nice, a ranking system of some sort outside of McMMo or something. I dunno man, but I agree.
