    Hello everyone!

    Some big changes have occurred recently! Our manager Katniss has resigned from the ParadiseMC staff team. This was very sad news because Katniss' work has been very important and she has worked countless hours to make this network great. She committed so much of her time so please go and spam her with thank you messages.

    On a happier note, Kevin one of our former administrators has officially been appointed the role of senior administrator. So please congratulate him on this new position!

    I am the new manager at ParadiseMC. My role will be to carry on the work of the previous manager and to bring some new ideas and projects to the table which all of you can enjoy. If you see me in-game please feel free to message me :)

    Tonight at 5pm EST we will be having the player staff meet up on our discord server (please see all the details on our previous announcement) I am looking forward to speaking to some of you later on today at this event!

    Forgot to mention: Jon is back and helping us, not like he stopped helping us but without him the server would not be able to function properly, so go send him some love as well. :)

    I've recently have seen not many players online, maybe 30 or 40. This is different from the days of 800+ people. Is there any way we can get those players back and add more to the player base? If so how can you do it? Btw thank you for being a good manager so far, I think you'll do great!

    But we've already tried that, the player base just keeps getting smaller

    we'd probably need to advertise at the right time, if resets happen, they gotta happen with more testing in the future ;) then we advertise solid gamemodes

    the server only hit 800+ players when they advertised,
    as far as I know, they've never professionally advertised since.

    We have advertised but it was only on sponsored spots on smaller server list websites, and maybe a couple spots up the regular ranking.

    Yeah, I used to play, and I have immortal. But then the server just got rly boring so I quit and quit Minecraft as a whole, but if there is a time that the server goes back up to 500 players, and immortal rank hasn't been removed or nerfed or anything then I'll hop on once a while.


    (Buying csgo skins) I'll trade some in game stuff

    no. that's what diminished the server in the very beginning when Nick hired who was it? Choco? Just no.

    @Jorjie congrats. Make Skyblock stable & I'll come back. If I come back because Skyblock gets better, more will come back.

    How is a network supposed to grow with no advertisements? Do we call the Wizard of Oz and ask for a wish? No, we look at the market and advertise accordingly. That's how any company does it in the real world, they advertise accordingly. Nick didn't hire Choco, Choco came along with Preston (that's who he hired). Clearly you're delusional and don't even have your facts straight. The PrestonPlayz series was beneficial to Paradise as it created an influx of new community members that decided to stay. Like I said in the Player & Staff meetup yesterday, ParadiseMC is not a conventional network/community, it's always innovating new ideas, so there is no way your old "glory days" are coming back pal. Skyblock will be more stable without you, Skyblock will always be better, with or without you. Nobody is going to come back with your word, because you're irrelevant back then, and now. Look at the facts Jus, did I emphasize that clearly for you? I'll show some statistics for you myself.

    Now, these are sponsored bidding slots that go up to 40 thousand dollars sometimes. Why do they go up to 40 thousand dollars? Because people view them, and people then go on the server. Makes sense? Does it not? Now look, ParadiseMC spent $8000 on the ad, why? Because MCSL is known for bringing in the most players. Let's look at ParadiseMC stats.

    [​IMG]
    Clearly ParadiseMC is losing players, most players just leave and don't come back. What's needed after a fresh start? Advertisements, like in the real world. Please do your research before you start spitting on everyone's face and looking towards yourself as somebody relevant.
