Hi I'm a fairly avid minecraft player and as you've probably noticed, I'm new to PMC. I joined because I want to help promote a startup server that I play on, but since I'm new, I'm not sure what the best way to go about it is. Please let me know if you have any ideas on how I could do that. Thank you for having me in your community; I'm really excited to be here!!

If you happen to be looking for a casual survival server you should check us out:

Welcome to PMC :D Please Enjoy your Stay !!!

If you haven't already do a server listing https://www.planetminecraft.com/resources/servers/ here and also do a server Forum post, make sure you really sell it to ensure to get player interesting

We are looking at some server listings and votifier options, because those really seem to help. I went ahead and made an account on MC Server List.com, but I'll definitely make one on PMC as well. Thanks!

Welcome to the community :D
There are two widespread, and effective methods of promoting a server here on PMC. It's probably easiest for a creative server, but it can also be performed by other kinds of servers.

PMC's community is built upon a creative foundation. People don't come to PMC to discuss the latest Faction Greifing techniques, or Insane Prison server admin glitches. The majority is here to be creative and / or take part in creative contest's. This means that the two best ways to promote a server on PMC would be:
- Sharing builds from the server, and adding the server IP in the "Built on" section when uploading a map.
- Creating fun contests for people to take part in. You can write that the contest is in cooperation with Banditcraft, and that way you give people a fun time with the contest, and you get to promote the server.

I used both methods to promote my old server GreenLeaf, and that brought the server a huge amount of success, as well as a 10-15 active player community.

Thank you very much for your advice. Banditcraft is largely survival based, but after we establish a good semi-vanillia platform and work out some kinks, we want to add a creative mode element as well (probably plot based).

I'm glad you mentioned taking pictures. I would not have thought of that, but it makes a lot of sense that people would be drawn to the visuals. The real challenge is finding the right shader pack :)

As far as contests go, I would have to brainstorm with my fellow staff members about what we could offer. Everyone likes a friendly competition, so thank you for the idea.

I hope that BanditCraft makes it as far as GreenLeaf did; I'll definitely check it out if you send me the IP.

GreenLeaf sadly had to close due to private reasons, however the server is still up on PMC's server list: https://www.planetminecraft.com/server/greenleaf-creative-1-13-2-creative-community-server/

Contest wise and so, I would recommend looking at other contest's as well as a really good blog on how to make a successful contest, made by DinowCookie (Also the post was recently updated :D )

Hi. Assuming it is already posted to the site as a server, It can also be advertised in the forums here.

Yup we have voter links on the server, and hopefully that will help as we get bigger :)
