What type of server should I start? I'm thinking Hardcore faction, to where if you die you get banned for a couple or something else. What do you think I should do? Also faction server tend shut down pretty fast since there are so many of them. So again what do you think I should do?

Thanks,
Timoxhy

People will get bored if everything stays the same.
As much as people make faction servers, or survival servers, they just get a bit boring.

You need changing things... Things that make people come back.
If I had my own idea I would use it, so I can't help you there, but think minigames, small things that keep people coming back for more.

Heres a list of servers you can make off the top of my head:
- Survival Server
- Minigame Server
- PVP Server
- Factions Server
- Prison Server
- Creative Server


You can combine them too.. survival and minigame or.. pvp with a creative world...
Be creative!

Always start a server you would enjoy playing on yourself. If you create something your unfamiliar with or wouldn't play on the your not going to stick around long enough to run it properly.

not really if you make your server cracked then and its factions it wont shut down but not many people want cracked servers

14manj01 any type of server will do good as long as you make it sucessful and devote enough time to it personally right now from what I've seen faction servers are super popular like my friend started one a couple of days ago and bam hes got like 20 plus people on at all times the demand in different types of servers changes depending on what the minecraft community wants since a lot of people are buying minecraft they are preferring easy servers until they get the hang of minecraft and right now faction servers are the easiest server for them. For example when the movie The Hunger Games was coming out the demand in Hunger Games servers was huge I had a ton of Hunger Games servers nowadays those servers can barely get 10 people it just depends on the minecraft communities interest like I have said before but good luck in picking what kind of server you want if you need help on making a server or help with plugins or permissions just ask me.

again: Leave that for the OP to say if he wants to. If you have a problem with my ideas, go make another thread about it. Dont criticize when you have no right too.

A forum is meant as a place where one can discuss their (often opposing) viewpoints..

Aside from that, factions, pvp, raid, 'hardcore', and grief are way overdone

Sorry for critisizing, it's just that they are overused.

Herp a derp a derp ZamCraft99 Don't do that, that just makes it a derpy server that has nothing to do but be the same as any othere server, we don't want an overused idea we want original, sorry ZamCraft99 about critisizing but it's true, your probably trying to get over a server that you played on a while back and you can't afford a new server so you want to get another person to do your idea. Anyways, I just don't want a overused server and I am guessing that a lot of PMCers would agree with me, as in not having to sift through all the Factions, PVP servers or Prison OR mediaval, server because they are not unique, I personally think that I hate having to shift through all the regular servers in PMC I hope you understand.

I liked the idea of a Prison server, or maybe a Survival server.

Or maybe a Medieval server. With a giant castle for a spawn. The ranks could be like [Knight] or [Templar] and other awesome stuff.

Ok first of all lets try to be realistic you most likely have no experience in java so youll have to get plugins from bukkit all those plugins that you people are metioning are custom while their are some on bukkit they are in beta and are full of bugs custom plugins do not mean for sure youll get a popular server also paying someone to make you a custom plugin is very expensive your best bet is to make like a 30 slot server and once your community grows expand it then

A "Games" server is always good. Have you ever been on Skydoesminecraft's sg server? It's filled with things. It's got Parkour, Survival, Hunger Games, Creative, Bow Warfare, Super Craft Bros, and many other things.

If you were to make a server, I'd be interested in a server like that. But with more games, like the Walls, Cluster Chunk, Cops and Robbers, Survival island, Sky Block, and other things. Just remember, any server you make will get the attention of everyone, as long as you
SPAM IT EVERYWHERE!!!! SPAM IT, SPAM IT, SPAM IT!!!!

Just kidding. Advertise it on a few Minecraft Server websites, and it'll get the attention of many people.
Just remember to be nice to everyone, no matter how insignificant they are.

I personally think that you should START a small 30 slot server, small, with a community, have a plot world, build world, Factions world, and a Survival world(NON PVP), that would make your server not as common(and thats just to make it a good unique server). Have custom plugins, not just plugins that everyone uses(but essentials is a good one), allow all players to fly, don't yet allow donations, later..later...
