With GhoulGam3rs 2018 coming to an end, I would like to address the community on the server and how you each individually feel about it.

If there's any other reason you don't want to/cannot play Jailbreak, please make a reply in this thread with your feedback.

If you consider yourself a populator (Option 4.) I would like to work with you and the rest of those to organize a loose schedule to help populate Jailbreak. Please add me on Steam.

look I'm happy to help stay on intill jb gets more people but if u are only going to do special days and not mix in a few cage days then count me out. jb has been dead for a long time and when it dose get people on all I see is special days and I want people to call a few days and then mix in a special day but nope people get mad and just go do their own thing when I ask them to call a day.

if u are only going to do special days in the jb server then make it into a mini games server or something.

@Rin I share your sentiment. I think it's important for us to emphasize that this is Jailbreak and people should be calling days first and foremost. While it may have been okay in the past to spam special days on low population until the server got populated, we need to shift back to basics.

I agree with @nova. I love everyone in this community and when I join JB it's more to just banter with the lads than because I actually want to play JB. I have the most fun on the forums than anywhere else.

Based off what I've seen from the people in this community, obviously a lot of you guys have a passion. And there's no denying that we have the best jailbreak server. When you look at all the other communities nfo graphs and player bases, it's consistent all around the board. The servers who aren't heavily boosted and botted are all slumping or completely dying at this time. This is due to two main reasons. I assume a lot of the people here either work in retail or office jobs, if not go to school full time. School has recently just started with the beginning of the new semester of the first year of college for some people, as well as retail businesses getting slammed with excess stock in time for the holidays. I work as a manager at a retail company, and we normally got 200-300 boxes in on our trucks and we're now getting 600-700. Easily double or nearly quadruple. As well as my company now going on holiday hours where we open an hour earlier and close an hour later. This is just a really busy time for a lot of us, and since a lot of us are in the west, this is the same boat for us all.
I used to populate other servers as hard as I possibly could by inviting people. I do know that it can be tiring after a while where you're having to invite and populate constantly. It can burn you out a heck of a lot faster from the mod than just popping in whenever you want and play a few rounds and drop if you want. During winter break, I'm sure our numbers will go back up temporarily and then drop again when classes/work resumes.
As for now, the best thing we can do is hold on to the boat and not lose hope and say that this community is dead or anything, because it is actually quite lively with the communication on forums. We currently have one main mod and that's jailbreak. And you look at every jailbreak server and they have the same exact graph we do in population. Look at LgK for example. The ONLY servers of theirs that have population are the ones who have people boosting it every week. If they did not have those people or those servers, they would look like we do.
The thing to keep in mind is when the summer was here, we were on top of the jailbreaks. We had nearly full servers if not full with an all steam player base. All the other communities have made their servers nonsteam and still couldn't pull the numbers we could half the time.
So I wouldn't be discouraged in the numbers right now. Best thing we can do is keep active in forums and pop into the servers whenever we can get a good number of people going and accept that for how it is at the time being. Obviously we still must try and get the servers off the ground, I truthfully haven't stepped foot in jailbreak lately because when I'm not at work, I'm buried in plugins for zombie.

But yeah, pretty much TL:DR We're OG, just need to wait for the holidays to be over.

I appreciate the optimism, @MachOMan.

My biggest concern with basing projections on last year/years before is that GG JB was brand new. I believe a lot of the population can be contributed to the hype. It died around Feb-Mar and took back off in the summer. Once we got to the summer, the community was having serious issues with toxicity that pushed a lot of people away.

With most of the long-term population now gone, what we do in Nov and Dec of this year is crucial to the survival of JB. I can't just expect old members to pop back in when noone familiar is there to greet them.

Because of this, I want to direct focus on building the community without heavy reliance on old, popular members. A lot of Jailbreak's appeal comes from the community that surrounds it. If that's not in a sound place come peek population months, I don't think we can safely rely on people just jumping back in.

13 days late, but whatever.

For me it's a combination of 1 and 3. The mod gets boring after playing for a while. I'm sure many other people feel the same way. Back in the days of AG, we'd have TTT to take care of players bored with JB. Then when they became bored of TTT, they simply reverted to JB. Granted, there were players who exclusively stuck to one or the other, but I still saw a good bunch of people alternate between the two. The two complimented each other well and the lack of a second gamemode now really seems to be bringing it down.

Constant updates definitely help JB feel fresh, but I feel like the updates that we do receive are negligible at best. Besides that, I think the mod has gotten to the point where it can't really be improved in a substantial way anymore.

The only thing that separates us from the other servers that are more active, is this one is steam only. When I first joined it wasn't steam only and it felt like it has a lot more players. I get why making this server requires you to have steam but that, I feel has been the biggest obstacle.

It got changed to steam only because we banned sanji he would constantly just join and Mfk and kill the server. We’ve had talks of making it non steam again but I personally don’t think it would be a big impact on the player base
