    Hello good people of Project Mayhem, today I want to display an idea publicly that is open for debate. Now, Before I get into what my idea is, I want to state that debate is wanted, childish arguments is not wanted. I do not want anybody going offtopic unless it is related to this thread or is fairly necessary.

    Alright, so now for my actual idea. My idea revolves around what the future of Project Mayhem will be, and how to increase player counts without any sort of advertisement. The idea I have has been commonly suggested, but I feel it is necessary to have this idea back into discussion. I am suggesting that we remove or hide gamemodes that are not receiving updates with minimal player counts (Fear SG, TIM, and Arsenal). I suggest this in consideration that there will be advertisement in the near future, and that is why we should hide these gamemodes for now. What is the purpose? Well this is where you guys tell me, think about this for a second. From youtubers (or any sort of advertisement) what happens? Players come on and typically want to join a game. They click on the server selector and they have a wide variety of choices, now most people would think that this is a good thing, I am claiming that it is very negative on our server.

    Fear SG, Time is Money Factions, and Arsenal are all very good gamemodes, but if I am new and I want to try out Arsenal and it only has 5 people on it, what does that tell me? The first thing that would pop into my head is, "This isn't fun" followed up with, "This server might be dying". If all of those gamemodes were hidden from my view, then I would have a choice of SnD, Mci, Mayhem Mania, and Agario which are our most popular gamemodes. Now, the reason I say they should be hidden over removed is because all of these gamemodes are very fun gamemodes that I can see being popular in the future, but as of now I only think it is harming our server. I made a video to clear most of this up...

    (Please no hate, I tried :p)


    Let me know what you guys think!

    You enjoy TIM even when there are minimal players? Wouldn't you rather it be reintroduced making it 10x better in the near future?

    I'm glad you asked this because this is something we've been wanting to do for a while but wanted to gage the community's opinion

    You act like I don't do anything? Advertising a server isn't magic... It's extremely difficult, especially for a factions server within a larger minigame server.

    My only concern on this is the /glist command, people will still see the worlds for the gamemodes that are hidden. So there will have to be a plug-in made to hide those worlds in it. Why not just restrict access to the command? People can use it to see if there are staff in /v on a server they reported a hacker on, see if there are staff on at all and they are just using "@" in vein, etc; the worlds have to be hidden.

    I don't think that will be necessary, moles is still a gamemode just not accessible by members. As long as we have the gamemodes inaccessible so we can make everyone who joins like the gamemodes we do have

    Maybe make like a different button at the bottom with "Alternative gamemodes" which hold Arsenal, TIM and FearSG. They will still be accesible but you will just see the four main gamemodes when you join so your brain doesn't get tired, because you have to look at seven different items. (This is actually a thing)

    I could not agree more, also i think that there should be a standard factions server instead of time is money

    Why is everyone hating on TIMF? It is literaly the second bet gamemode. SND is first.

    There are tons of people that love it but don't play it because no one else does.
