While I agree that 6 demo servers is about 3 too many, why should I close them *all* down? On the demo servers alone over 5000 games have been played, and on all my servers alone there's been over 7800 games since I moved them to the IV servers. There was about 2000 before that. It's clearly wanted, so again why should I shut them down?

I'm not talking about the demo servers, but you have like 2 servers for each gamemode - isn't that a bit too much? Your servers take up slightly less than half the server list, and that's in a good case! Usually they're about 90%.

Well one thing's for sure - the contents will not be good if they're coming from me.

You know, most kindergartners don't have trouble counting to "one."

Theres no reason to close down all of them but I've never seen more than maybe half in use at one time, and thats the problem. A few full servers looks a lot more active and less daunting than a bunch of empty servers.

Stop spamming. You are really starting to annoy me.

I don't understand why since Cyan. is gone someone feels like they need to fill the void he left.

Wasn't he trying to fill cyan.'s shoes before cyan. left?

This goes completely against my argument of were-an-international-community-with-different-time-zones but maybe you should have a bare minimum (say 2 demo and 3 normal) of servers on 24/7 and have special times / days when the number of servers are increased, to persuade people to all play around the same time. A sort of "happy hour".

Neatnit fails that because he doesn't start throwing random slanderous insults around like a prick. If he were spamming he would have repeated posting "Most." 3 times or more after that.

Right. And people call me Cookie when it's actually pronounced "Cook".
