Too many of us, Mineplex has been more than just a Minecraft server. Sadly, Mineplex isn't what is used to, barely having 3000 players on the Java servers at any time. In order to combat this issue, and bring back Mineplex's popularity and its previous playerbase, I thought of some strategies Mineplex can implement. Bring back some of the older gamemodes. Many gamemodes over the years have been removed such as Wizards, UHC, and Castle Siege. These were not ordinary games that had no lobbies, but popular games, and as they were removed, many players left. Recently, there have been attempts to start up games like Castle Siege (you can read more about it here). Hopefully this will bring back some of the older content creators and along with them the older playerbase. Reduce the number of hackers. I already suggested some ideas of reducing the number of hackers here, but I'll just go over them briefly along with some new ideas from the replies I received on that thread. The two main and most liked ideas are to Improve Gwen and Drastically Increase the Staff Team. I have decided not to include the other ideas due to their flaws and the implementation of /report for every player. Although it might be hard and take a couple of months to start on either of these ideas, no matter how long it takes, it will still be beneficial to the Mineplex community. One idea I would like to add is to make forum reporting faster. Typically, it takes a couple days (maybe one if you are lucky) for a moderator to punish a player. I believe this process should be made faster, whether by increasing the amount of people on the Reports Patrol team or increasing the amount of reports staff members have to read through (if there already is an amount). Also since I dislike the idea of IP banning, and since many hackers utilize alts, in addition to the ban length they get, they should not be able to log into Mineplex without submitting a lengthy appeal or filling out a long questionnaire or survey. This discourages the use of using alternate accounts that have already been banned. Once a large amount of alternate accounts have been banned, hackers should have trouble finding ones that aren't banned, therefore reducing the amount of hackers. Reduce lag. I believe that most claims that Mineplex lags a lot are false. Most of the time, when I lag it is on my end. Furthermore, you can try to already decrease lag by going to this thread. However, there is a substantial amount of lag on Clans. If this could be fixed, I believe that this will also bring back more of the playerbase and improve Mineplex's reputation. Bring new players. If the following three steps are worked upon, more content creators will get on bringing new players. Also starting back the official Mineplex YouTube channel will be beneficial in bringing new players. Once new players join, I believe there should be more tutorials to games, so they won't lose interest and go onto other servers. Especially in some of the hardcore, Mineplex-original games like Champions or Super Smash Mobs. I don't believe the tips at the start of the game are helpful enough especially in Champions if they don't know how to switch abilities or use item tokens. Whether the tutorials be YouTube videos on Mineplex's official channel or staff members creating Mineplex Player Servers (mps) dedicated to helping newcomers. If all of these ideas can be implemented, I believe Mineplex can be revived. Feel free to write down any other ideas or suggestions down below!
