it apparently hit the toilet. What frook needs is to get a profit out of it. Which means he needs capitalists to come and do it.


step 1: we need a place to host the sever where we can have a reasonable number of users.

step 2: We need someone to actually get the server up and running, with all the mods (as in game mods, not moderators) that we would like on the server to make a feasible money maker

step 3: we gather up people on the mod team interested and able to from the mod/admin team for the server and then test everything to make sure that it works properly

Step 4: we advertise, which in itself would require money to do so offsite but we could aslo promote it from within fwg to get a starting userbase

step 5: Add donation perks to the server

Step 6: profit.

note frook this is a bit of a longer term investment and can take a couple months to make any returns, if any. as with anything that involes making an investment it is a risk, but considering i know of quite a few fwgers that play minecraft and the fact that a large portion of our website's target audience plays minecraft it's quite probable that we will make profit, from donations and site traffic.


there is my proposal, if you choose to consider it further I'll get back to you with more details.

the problem is, the profit needs to far exceed the effort required to get it started and then to keep it going. Not really viable... I think.

I say we just let this one go lol.

To really actually even consider this we would have to conduct a site wide poll to ask the 30,000 daily visitors to see if they would like this.
