Ok, so factions died earlier than normal this reset. 3 months. Last week a bunch of people quit (they said caught for duping and maybe were banned / maybe it's all a lie - doesn't matter) and that led to even more people quitting. Since this map is dead and the server is having issues with getting new donators and $$$ to keep running, I think you can generate interest in Factions again just be doing a reset with zero changes. This means little to no work for you other than deleting the saved world and letting a new one generate (I assume you would world edit spawn / warzone into the new world). Very little effort and should bring back people again. Same rules as before (1 week with no kits or power). The sooner the better since map 6 is dead. BTW, I like the pay for unban idea. I mentioned it to several mods that I thought it would be a good idea to generate revenue. You're welcome. :-) This may seem unrelated to this thread, but it is related. Will someone who is perm banned be able to at least buy one unban? It could be a new chance / new beginning for a few players to come back if they want to. What do you have to lose if "the server is dying"? [EDIT] Ok, there is one change we all want. Being able to sell gold nuggets - add to shop / bulk shop. All other mob droppings can be sold and you can't sell gold nuggets from a gold farm without crafting them into ingots.
