3 Reasons To Join The Best Minecraft Server Community
I made a blog post on SiverMoon’s blog titled, “What SilverMoon Means To Me – One of the Best Minecraft Servers!“. In that post, it was that site’s first blog post and I wanted it to be a special post. I decided to talk about some of the highlights of what I have found while running this server for just a little over a month & why I consider our server to be the best minecraft server.
A short excerpt from that post:
“I thank you for being apart of this server! And this is what I needed. I’ve been learning for a long time, but now I want to run and try new tactics. I want to be a video game developer and I haven’t been doing the best to perfect my craft. So I am so thankful for your support in giving me a new opportunity to learn about running game communities.”
Serenity and I are nearing our second month on SilverMoon Pixelmon and I thought I’d share with you some more highlights. If you look at this site and it’s content, you’ll notice that I’m a real on-again/off-again aspiring game developer. SilverMoon has re-lit my desire to push harder for my dreams. Thank you.
And now to the reasons why you should consider our server as the best minecraft server community! I hope that one day you will join us!
For Starters: Love & Kindness
Sounds cliche and overlooked by server owners. But I feel this is one of the core reasons to why I believe SilverMoon Pixelmon is the best minecraft server community. Players on our server open other players with welcome arms to new friendships. What’s Minecraft without a friends?
Our server’s community has family members; from fathers & their sons, to best friends, to real life friends. While we allow people to be themselves, we’ve always wanted a friendly atmosphere first. Without asking, our players have always welcomed new people and helped them.
Then there’s: Response Time
I am brand new to being a minecraft server owner so it’s important to me to respond to everyone. This way I can build the best report with my player base. Serenity and I try our best to be available 24/7 for our players. While we might not appear online, we are always keeping tabs on everything.
A brilliant use of our response time is trying to minimize timeouts and keep the server running at all times. I created a python script to help monitor things on our server and provide us with news such as: Player Count, Cheaters, Logs, Timeouts, and Ddos attacks.
Dedicated Mobile Response Team
Along with our monitoring on things such as the above, we focus on being there anytime a player needs us. We are just a message away. Both Serenity and I use the following android apps to give either push notifications or access to the sever:
- Pickaxe Chat – Download Here
- Used to connect to the server and allow us to chat to our players even when we aren’t home. We also use this a lot as we check in before going to bed or while we are waking up.
- Remote Desktop Connection
- To ensure everything is always running, we need to be able to have direct access to our server at a moments notice. Having it on our phones just means we’ll be able to launch the server the moment we get a skype message.
- Enjin Android App – Download Here
- Teamspeak Android App – Download Here
- You’ll often find us chatting through our teamspeak server. Having teamspeak on our phones just allows us to engage with our community members. (Join us at: ts3.silvermoonpixelmon.com)
- Skype – Download Here
- We have our staff chat, gym leader chat, and our automation bot notifications chat to always keep us updated. Sometimes, I’m personally busy doing something, such as cooking food, and I’ll use my phone’s notification light as my indicator to quickly check skype.
And Lastly: Support
As mentioned, I am new to being a minecraft server owner. It has been amazing to see the patience and guidance as I navigate through pixelmon. For the longest while, I had no idea on how to help players.
But after a month of experience I started to get the hang of it. By the second month, I had been able to focus learning the core of what it means to run a minecraft server. From the plugins, map design, player feedback, the community, etc. Everyone has been so supportive of not just myself but also with the community.
I won’t be the only one on the server who had no idea what they were doing. Thank you everyone who has helped new players on the server. Thank you for all the awesome feedback about everything! You have no idea how much we appreciate all the compliments, suggestions, and frustration feedback.
