      Top Lists Are Working, Initial Player Retention Is Where We Fail   02/06/2018

      Hey everyone.  I just wanted to give an update on where we are with new players.  We are constantly having new players join each and every day, but when they come online and see less than 10 people online, they don't even give us a chance.  Many of you who have stuck around did give us that chance, and now you are part of our loyal player base.  I know I've talked about this before, but I just wanted to point something out. The top list listings are working. Players who browse the top lists looking for new a potential server actually stop and download ours.  That means they like what they see in the description and the banner, and we get their traffic.  They don't get to really try out what they saw in the listing because they decide they want a larger player base.  It really just stinks, because if half of these people stayed online for more than an hour, they would see other players joining as well as our regular players hopping online. Yesterday, alone (2/6/18), I count 13 new accounts.  Imagine if these players actually gave us a shot.  For this, I ask you...if you are able to be logged in, whether afk or not, please do so.  If you have two accounts, please log in to both of them.  Player count is one of the first things new players look at when they log in.  Without it, people rarely give us a chance.  This isn't about falsifying the player count, it's about player retention.  I think the true player milestone we have to achieve is 25 online at once.  Once we do that, I feel like we'll be good and won't have to have this conversation again Thanks for sticking around, and if you're new, welcome!  Thanks for giving us a shot!

    In-game Name: Big Don Total Time Played (provide screenshot): 85 hours, see attached image. Timezone: UTC-5:00 Age: 22 Staff Experience (Please do not disclose server names:) Help staff for 2 servers and I was also a Moderator in real runescape until I stepped down because I had moved to private servers. How many hours a day do you spend on Salvage? varies but usually several hours a day during the week, I don't play much during the weekend because that is when I go out. What time(s) are you usually on Salvage? (e.g 3am-7am) around 9am-4pm and then sometimes from 8pm-11pm. Are there any days that you are unable to play Salvage? not unable, but there are days that I don't get on. I am on most days though. Have you ever been warned or infracted by a staff member on Salvage? (If yes, please explain.): I have not been warned or infracted. What 5 qualities do you feel you possess that will make you an exemplary Salvage staff member? 1) I like to help new people get their footing in servers. 2) I am understanding of other people and don't get flustered or frustrated by others. 3) I have leadership qualities, I was the captain of my basketball team in high school and I am head of the sales team at the company I work for. 4) I'm collected, so if faced with an issue I would never make an impulse decision. 5) I am an extrovert which helps with meeting new players and making them feel welcome. In 3 short paragraphs, why do you feel you are right for the position you wish to acquire?: I am older which helps since I will not be acting like a child on the server. I am able to make new players feel welcome on the servers which will hopefully make them want to stay so that we can build a bigger community. A lot of people that are joining this private server are going to be a little older which will make it easy for me to connect to them. The leadership roles that I have held and currently hold will help in this position because staff need to help new players and need to lead by example. If staff just sits back and isn't really involved then players think they can do whatever they want. I will be able to show new players what is right and wrong behavior on the server in a nice manor. Being able to tell someone how to do something without sounding demeaning is very important. I also believe that being calm and collected is very important when dealing with issues. Jumping the gun can cause a lot of irreversible damage to a server by losing not only the players that are having a problem, but other players that see what happens and get disheartened by the staffs actions. I believe that this will help me resolve issues easier and make everyone possible happy in the situation. What do you hope to achieve if you are promoted?: I want to be able to show new players that there is an active staff base and be able to somewhat control situations if higher staff is unavailable. I witnessed first hand a player duping and a couple days went by with no staff on to help neutralize the situation. I want to be able to snuff that kind of thing before it gets out of hand. I saw that a couple of people quit due to the incident and I want to be there to set things straight. I felt helpless during the whole event as I watched the player mislead new players and give them duped items and there was nothing I could do. If there is one rule you wish to change or address, what rule would it be? (Must answer) I believe that the AFK rule could be a little better defined. I like to afk while skilling and I'm not sure where the line is drawn when it comes to prolonged afking. Id like to add that as long as someone is earning exp, they can be afk. A lot of skills are pretty boring and most people do other things while skilling. How do you feel about respect, loyalty, and rule enforcement as a staff member? rule enforcement is a must and respect and loyalty are what keep a server running. Respect goes both ways for staff, staff should be respected and they should respect all of the players on the server. Staff must be loyal to a server so they will be on during issues and will devote their time needed to the server. Rule enforcement is the name of the game for the staff. Without the rules, players can just run the server into the ground because most players will quit. I want to help this server in any way I can. This is my favorite server I have ever played and I want to see it flourish.
