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!
