Just curious how long people tend to keep their public servers alive, on average. SonoraBuild turned 7 last month (on the 21st!) and I'm curious about other long-lived servers... or if you like to keep making really short ones.
What things encourage you to keep renewing your server month after month? For me, it's all about the creative expression and being a good internet presence.
What kind of servers do you make? Are they private worlds with your friends with a neverending story of history and inside jokes? Do you make those dang ol' op pvp mushroom soup drinking servers? I'd love to hear.

For me it definitely depends what the server is about, but in the last 1.5 years I have run through 3 servers and the last one I am currently hosting will most likely be dead by the end of february due to it not being used at all.

aww, that's unfortunate (unless you have bigger plans of course!!). May I ask what your goals are for server ownership? like, is it to challenge yourself? how important is building a community to you?

I really want to build a community that just works together, but I feel like it's always at that "magic" 5-6 months mark that most players tend to lose intrest in playing.

The last servers were all semi-vanilla and very much centered around the wishes of the community with leaving some decisions to me as the server owner.

I am currently thinking about just going creative instead of survival and start a build project with a focus on possibly using it as a map to roleplay on later. See here.

We started our world building project 6 years ago, changed the plans from time to time, but summed up kept our intentions of creating something vivid representing the late 18th century. So yeah, creativity and fun at building, writing, creating etc., is the upkeeping factor in that. Keeping the server running is thus nearly natural :D

Would it be possible to take a look at your server/join you guys? That sounds like pretty much what I am looking to start myself ^^
