Hello everyone. I know most of you, and I'm sure a lot of you know me. I love this server dearly, and If you do not care about the well-being of this server, please get off this thread now. Tekkit Classic... where to start, where to start... It had a great run as a modpack. But the creater of EE2 made EE3 horrible, and combined with some other problems, it stopped being updated at 1.2.5. Sure, people will always still play it, and that's amazing, but the fact is, Tekkit Classic is a dying modpack, a sad truth noone here wants to face. I remeber when only 7 months ago this serve was averaging 50 or 60 people, not 30 or 40, usually around 25! I remember when every 5 minutes a new person joined the server to have an awesome Tekkit experience, not every hour! It's dying, guys, and there's really no amount of advertising of the server we can do about it, because like I said, Tekkit Classic is only 1.2.5, and not a lot of people want to play that, except me, Lions, Alupark... the regulars and the new people that join the server, which isn't much. We should stop thinking about how Towny would benefit the server, or space on the server, or things like that. We need to be worrying about how this server is going to survive when the only people that are on are the regulars, with only 1 new person joining every day or so! Now, what I propose we do is either switch this server over to a modpack that's being updated, such as FTB or Tekkit Main, etc. Maybe we could even do basic Minecraft? OR we could make a new server, and Thowee, Gecko, I know you guys poor your soul into this server, and I know that you may be hesitant to buy another one, but what you could do Is put maybe Envy, as he's active a lot, on the case of "Manager" of the server, have him recruit and train staff, advertise it, etc., while Thowee, you work magic with your plugins to make it a copy of the Tekkit Classic server. And if money is an issue, I have a guy who MAY be willing to fund some servers for you, and if he won't do it, I will, because I will not let this server fall through!!!

Edit: If anyone gets mad at me for posting this, sorry, it's what I believe should be the next step!
Sincerely,
Your secret world leader, Smurf.

We are happy as a Tekkit Classic server.
Thanks, old friend.

I didn't read all of it, So sorry if my answer seems unfair, But this server is only popular because it's tekkit it will loose a lot of players if they change the modpack.

The server should always be tekkit classic

We could considering adding additional servers, BUT we are not planning to replace Tekkit Classic: until further notice, and as long as the bills can be paid by donations (no problem there so far), we'll keep things running!

Feel free to open new discussions regarding what mod pack you think would 'rock', keeping in mind that there must be a way for us to get people to actually join our server! (An epic mod pack with a total user base of 1000 won't do, for example)

Also, we have the 'personal' added requirement that we must be able to 'patch' the server to our needs: If we would open a 2nd server, we must be able to apply custom fixes + add new features!

No, I love the Tekkit Classic server, I am just saying that we need to start expanding, or this server will fall...

I like the idea of having another server. Maybe a Custom Modpack one or Vanilla.
Thanks, old friend.
