Hey there! First of all, I'd like to say I'm finally back after being inactive for a couple of years, and it's nice to see everyone still hanging around. Really missed ya'll!
Onto the point. I've been watching our servers' activity and it's needless to say they're pretty empty throughout the day (not including hardcore tdm). Of course, the game itself is very old and the player base isn't nearly as big as it was in its prime days, but that doesn't mean we can't get at least a few players to join our servers.
I believe that our mods aren't as attractive as they once were, and some of them are even unplayable without a larger amount of players (examples being CTF and Freeze tag). Because of that, I suggest we spice our servers up a bit by changing current gamemodes to new ones. For example, I'd love to see the Hide n Seek (HnS) mod back in action, the zom_db mod, or even the gun game mod. HnS mod currently isn't played on any of the active servers, and I believe there'd be some players interested in it. Gun game is very popular and I believe we'd succeed in running it, especially if we additionally edit it in 'IceOps style' (hardcore tdm is a good example).
I'm proposing to try and get our servers more active, and I believe this would be a good way to start since the current servers are just sitting empty. I already got the green light for this to happen, now I just need a good amount of players agreeing to this so we can actually implement this, so please leave a comment or like my post so I know you're standing by my suggestion! Thanks for reading through this.
TL;DR: Change the current empty servers' gamemodes to other ones such as Hide 'n' Seek, zom_db, gun game, etc. to try and get some players online.
