It's no secret that our servers are generally empty. I was thinking we could redo some of our servers to make them things more people want.

If you are willing to regularly admin a particular type of server, please post that server type here.

I am considering removing the following servers, so please speak up if you want us to keep them:
128 tick deathmatch (Removed)
Gungame (Removed)
Aim/awp/fy/fun
5v5 Comp server

I am considering changing the Asylum to also include the standard Valve maps, so that it runs a rotation of all maps that have ever been in Valve's game mode. See here for current changes.

I am okay with that really. They've not been too active.

I don't think we should remove the 5v5 comp. I will take that one over if necessary.

I think a casual server would be a good idea. I know that isn't something we generally do or even promote, but casual seems to be popular with people. Something 16k each round. All talk can be off like it is in normal casual but its relaxed. I think that would be good, anyone else?

The only time we ever play 5v5 is to do our 10-mans. That's why I thought there would be no real reason to keep that server.

I was wondering if maybe we should make our asylum like that. Most people who enjoyed the operation maps enjoyed them in a more casual setting. 16k start money on those maps may be more popular than the current set up.

I personally would really enjoy it. Not to be blasphemous, but those were my favorite servers in 1.6.

I also really enjoy the aim server. I often forget about it and am not sure how many people really know we have it. I do have lots of fun on that server especially when its near full.

I am considering closing our 1v1 #2 server and see what happens. I'm not sure if we still need to have 2, and it might be hurting us to spread the population across two servers.

Has anybody seen both be full at the same time recently? I could have just missed it.

I haven't seen both full in a long time.

I shut number 2 down yesterday and 1 was full almost all night. Hopefully this was a good change.

Any ideas for what types of servers we should make in the stead of those we removed? We don't have to make any extra ones if we don't want, but we do have the resources.

Since the retakes server got little traffic during the monthly game mode, I'll probably remove that one at the end of the month unless things turn around.

I thought the purpose of removing those was so we could keep our fewer servers more populated. I think the way to go would be to only keep a handful of servers.

No, the purpose of removing them was to make room for other servers that people actually wanted to play in.

However, the caveat was that it had to be a type of server people were willing to play in often enough to justify.

I am just trying to make sure that people haven't forgotten to make suggestions (or misunderstood the question entirely). If nobody has any suggestions, that's fine too.

Ahhh my mistake. Honestly, I'm not sure what other servers to add that people would FREQUENTLY play in. The 1v1 has been MUCH more active now that #2 is taken down. Sure it might suck when it's full, but at least it IS full. People are using it more. I haven't been in the other servers though.
