    Possible way to bring the population back to the server

    So I have been thinking of way to try to bring the DR GunZ server back up to its former glory.

    People look for private servers on top sites. Top 100 top 200 etc.
    The only way to get on the top of those is by voting. Yet nobody thinks about voting.
    So i was thinking to get people to vote. you have a voting system. and can vote once a day on the "top sites"

    Link 1(top site) : Vote now for 1 Voter Token!
    Link 2(another top site): Vote now for 1 Voter Token!
    etc..


    And the reason they would vote would be for items.

    • Voter Items:
    • Voter Sword
    • Voter Dagger
    • Voter Meds
    • Voter Shot Gun x2
    • voter Pistol x2
    • Voter SMG x2
    • Voter MG
    • Voter Large Sword
    • Voter Rifle
    • Voter Grenades etc.
    • Voter Head Torso Legs and Hands Pieces



    and they should have a little bit of an advantage over the items in game. but not to much.

    Start maybe at level 50 or 60 for voter items.

    (ie)
    To keep it somewhat balanced you can, for example the shot guns. Make the items level based. So a lvl 50 Voter Shotgun would be better than the level 50 shotgun in the in game store. But if they want the level 60 shotgun the voter item would be a little better then that one as well but voter items can also be upgraded by the voter for 1 token (or something around those line))


    • Line: "Do you want to Upgrade your Voter Shotgun for 1 Voter Token"
    • Yes No
    • And if yes is clicked then 1 Voter Token is taken away and level 60 shotgun is replaced with the level 50 shotgun
    • Line:"Congratulations on your Upgrade! Item Received: Level 60 Voter Shotgun!"


    The Voter armor would be the same since it doesn't have any effects that will benefit the user, making it purely cosmetic.

    and the style can very. Get different skins for the weapons and armor etc.

    Reason for a little advantage is because, it would still be helping out the server by bringing more people in to play,
    and be able to support the sever even if they cant afford to donate.

    Just a thought hope you guys think its a good idea because I think it is:P


    P.S. Voter Tokens can be how ever much you guys want them to be. I don't know how that would be balanced out. Just somewhere around the lines of enough to where you cant get something right away but have to vote for a numerous amount of days to get something.

    Im not just talking about the old players. im talking about new people in general. Not everyone knows if the server is back up or not.

    Profit
    The whole point of the voting system is to bring people in that are looking for a private server. People dont join low populated servers becuase they want to play with people and the voteing will bring it up and bring more people and probably the old players because there are more people playing and it wont just be them online alone.

    That's like saying voting for a new president would bring more people to the United States. All I say is we advertise to bring new players. That's it.

    well first off people come to america no matter who the president is. and where else can you advertise? youtube? on a channel with no subscribers to see the video? random forums? that will get your account banned for flooding it? with voting you can have the community make a difference in a positive way. and my logic is clearly shown in the thread. Sure you can advertise. but it wont get anywhere when people dont see that its populated.

    xtremetop100 is an advertisement site. And voting for the server on that site would be increasing the rating. Higher rating would mean that it would a be server they would see higher on the lists of servers among the others. So players would see it before the others. A player like myself would be much more interested in a server that is ranked number 9 than one that is number 20, just for an example. To give players an insensitive to vote it would be a good idea to reward them. So a voting system could work as advertising. Or am i missing something here?

    All other games. Think man. If people are playing other games why would they go play another game that has nothing to do with what they are playing. they don't wanna see that. just like you wouldn't want to see people advertising other games on the forums. is common courtesy and respect to other peoples games.
