    Hello islanders!

    Today I am super excited to announce one of our first product giveaways for the holiday season! You know, Christmas and stuff, and even if you don't celebrate it, you can still participate in the spirit of giving (and taking from me). I am giving away an Apple Watch for this years holiday season. Click here to register for that.

    Secondly on the agenda, I know Paradise has been a little slow lately, but we've obtained a massive advertisement for the holiday season that will be effective on December 8th. I am super excited for this and I hope you are too!

    With the advertisements will come so extremely extensive server updates and bug fixes in anticipation for the new and old players to return! We hope you enjoy and stick around for the ride. We aren't done just yet!

    Best regards,
    SaintNickGamez

    Advertising brings the players, unfortunately, it won't keep them
    most of the game modes become dull after you reach and end-game point and in my opinion, kitpvp and survival are the only consistent game modes (well kitpvp died due to the updates it has gotten recently)
    I feel like this is going to be a repeat of last year.

    Ding, ding, ding. You are correct.

    Ads are good for driving traffic, but the retention rate will always be low if they don't like the server.

    What happens the first time one of those new players has an issue and submits a ticket? They don't get a response back for weeks... and then they leave the server.

    What happens when those new players experience other players cheating or harassing them, but there's no staff online? Eventually they say screw it, and then they leave the server.

    What happens when new players can't even chat in game because there's so much PMC spam? They get annoyed and go back to the other servers they play on.

    What happens when a new player actually speaks to a staff member but is treated rudely, talked down to with condescension, or their issues are simply ignored? You guessed it, they probably leave the server and never come back.

    There's a reason that so many companies are focused on Customer Experience. In the Minecraft world, there is tons of competition. It is very easy for players to simply leave and find another server if they have a bad experience with PMC. If the goal really is to grow the playerbase and keep them around, it'd be prudent to start taking a more business-like approach in the server's management.

    All super true and valid. Thanks for pointing it out. We're making some changes to make sure this doesn't continue to happen, including an in-game /ticket system.

    Go ahead and add over-policing of the forums to that list of negative customer experiences. Off-topic post deletions is the absolute stupidest thing ever. People are taking the time to have conversations in the PMC ecosphere. That engagement drives more engagement and deepens the personal investment in the server as well as time spent on the website. Discouraging that interplayer engagement makes people less likely to spend time on the website and in the PMC ecosphere.
