    I want to create a poll for everyone, I have wanted to know what proportion of people who play Minecraft run a server. I have ran a server before, but I stopped after it got too complicated and there wasn't really any good staff to hire to shoulder some of the work load. Are you staff or owner of a server?

    I used to be a server owner, but I could never find mature enough people to be Moderators because it just seems that a lot of stupid kids play Minecraft and it is impossible to find someone that you can trust enough not to troll everyone else and abuse their power.

    I used to be a moderator but they actually stripped me of my rank because some silly kid that hated me said I was doing some stuff I shouldn't be doing. And I didn't do anything at all. It still pisses me off.

    I used to run a server that had about ~30 active players but I eventually shut it down. Not because of costs, but because of all the hassle. I had good moderators and administrators but of course they all had lives so eventually we were all visiting the server less and less, which led to a lot of loyal players leaving.

    Overall though it was a great experience, exceptionally fun. :)

    I've never ran a server before, but my friend did once. He would pay $2 for the server every month I think and he would earn around $60 a month through donations, which was pretty neat. I guess that's the perks of having a public server with VIP packages. I've always wanted to make my own but I'm always overwhelmed with information every time I try to learn how to.

    I'm with you on that one, arachnophobik. I also have been weighed down by too much information in the past and in the end I experience analysis paralysis when it comes to learning anything to do with running my own server. I don't know if it's still something I would do as I find that lately I have less and less time for playing games.
