After a few thoughts and such, I want to know somethin'. I come around servers stealin' people to come to my server through my...

SHAMELESS PROMOTION AND ADVERTISING!!!

Whether I come to advertise for Bot Apocalypse or anythin' else or to promote a mode that's not well known, I want to know how people feels about it.
I could host servers and popularize new (as my server is rather popular), however there comes some ethics problem when I advertise. Again, I would like to hear yar opinions about this.

Do ya like it?
Do ya hate it?
Do ya not care?

Give a reason why ya think so. I do not want to hurt anyone's feelin's here, so please take no offense when ya read this topic.





On a brighter note, my 200th post! Yay :D!!!

Advertise more.

Open people's minds to new possibilities. Even if it's just a special way to configure the core game.

Hmm. I don't remember if I ever saw you advertise yet, but I'd say don't overdo it.

For me, I'd prefer inviting people to my server, rather than advertising. For one, its friendly to invite people. (not that advertising is un-friendly) Two, if "no advertising of other servers" is a rule on the server I am on, I would assume inviting would be less likely to break that rule.

Less Savior. Much less.

I appluade you for getting the word of your server out more.
But, people will come and flock if they have the need and want to join in.

If not, oh well.

Just ask a question and be done with it Savior. A simple "Anyone want to play CTF with me at my server?" is much better than "HEY GAIZ COME TO MY AWESOME SERVER IT HAS
CTFAN
MAP PACKSAN
COOL TIMESAN
YEAH. SAVIOR'S SERVER! FUCK YEAH! GOD BLESS AMERICA!"
You're doing just fine, Savior. A simple in&out is all you need to do to get the right amount of players into your awesome. It would be awesome, though, if you and Nu teamed up on Messatsu's servers to create "Unfaded's (insert mode here) servers". Just an idea I'm throwing out for the hell of it.

I used to advertise my servers when I hosted goldeneye TC. I'd join a random server, say something like "I'm host goldeneye if anyone's interested, and leave. Usually worked for me. But I guess it can get annoying if you keep saying it, or keep coming back. So only advertise a bit, don't overdo it.
