The idea is simple:
I (we) can create a new public server that will be "managed" by you (players). Where the "majority" will decide "what to do".
Like: creating own rules, making own refs, server settings, maplist, etc.
As I see it: the major plus of such server could be the constant management and a possibility to change anything by yourself.
At this time we have 2 servers: GnG and Pulse. The question is do we need one more? Is it worth it?

Basically, this sounds like a nice Idea, but who will pay for the server?
I doubt that something like crowdfounding works here.

Great idea. Nowadays, a simple game server is nowhere near as expensive as it was years ago. And it's not like it has to run the entirety of Newerth either.

It's not about the money.
I have a server that can be used for these things (location: GB).

Some constructive questions that come to mind:

1. How will matters be decided ? Votes on a forum ? Votes in-game ?
2. How will you encourage the population to actually take action to change the server ? Most people dont visit groents forum, because they dont care enough.

It sounds like you aim for a server with dynamic rules, where any rules can be changed by votes, is this the case?

If there's any way to reduce the power of buffs on this server, then sign me up!
Sounds like a good idea but not entirely sure people would move from pulse. Only reason we moved from GK was the server crashing or lagging out.

The allure of being able to change the settings and rules according to your own wishes should be enough temptation to get you to put in effort to have that change come true. More so in contrast to the poorly managed Pulse Server.

However, much like in real life, people that don't vote have no say in the matter and accept the result beforehand, having no right to complain thereafter.

Votes on a forum.

I hope it worth a try.

Everything's better than Pulse. Please go for it. It might encourage me to play more actively.

Server is up: http://www.newerth.com/?id=serverlist&details=94.177.253.129:11235
The next step is to inform people about it / create a server sub-forum / re-configure (if it needs) / rules / refs (etc).

That's great. Smiley
An alternative to Pulse is necessary.

Now time for the forum so they can actually start changing and voting on server changes.
Once everything is ready, we can make a Main Page post to attract attention for it.
