I looked all over this form and I still haven't found why the servers went down, last I saw they were getting updated or something. Also I really miss the GMR server in particular because it used to play it when I was really young and it actually developed a lot of my personality with the people I met on there and the good friends I made. Probably the best server I ever played on Garry's Mod and the most fun I've ever had in a game with all the spinning out and tricks we used to all do. I honestly loved the servers and would love to see them up again.

 

Part of a school project I did in fifth grade I was squeaky and stupid as hell back then:

No one knows, but let's just hope they will.

I personally miss the GMR server too, and I have such an urge to play on it. I should have played more GMR before, but I kept getting bored of it, damn it. Otherwise I could be almost at 10th prestige by now.

If the servers go up again there'll be little to no moderation.

Pretty much everyone of LDT has gotten bored of gmod and if some were to start playing again it would only be for like a few days.

This would cause every server to be an unmoderated chaos of RDM, exploiting and/or fuckery and they would die out again in no time.

 

I'd love to play DR or TTT again for like a few hours but I simply can't be bothered to spend almost every day on those servers anymore. And I think that goes for pretty much everyone here that used to abuse moderate.

Basically I was very optimistic in thinking I could get a fulltime job and spend time migrating the servers as well.
I turned out having less energy and time than I thought I would but I still intend to get back to it one day.

Important to note is that even when the servers go up again, we still need activity on them.

The main problem here is that the core of the community does not have much interest left in gmod, so it is difficult to build a playerbase.

I'm not worried. We started from scratch once. If you simply provide great servers people will come.

 

Think the average level of quality is terrible on most servers. The majority is ran by kids who learned how to rent a server and install some outdated incompatible addons on it. Only few are ran by serious communities that can provide quality. Since those few do not saturate the market they are not competition.

On top of what Psy said, "it might suck" is not really a reason not to try.

 

Also the idea is to make the rules as unambiguous as possible so that moderation will be simpler.
For instance Floodmod had so many rules me and psy wouldn't even agree on what they were exactly.
