Public Server Listings

Since pretty much no hosted servers have been in the server list at all lately, I would like to see some kind of category made in the server list for publicly listed servers that are seeking help.

Server options allow you to make a server staff-only and thus private, so it would be very nice to be able to flag them as public so that players can log on without having to guess at the server name. I used to get lots of traffic from curious users who would see World of Tomorrow listed in RC, but since that's not even available anymore, I rarely see anyone anymore who drops by on a whim. And since advertising isn't allowed on other servers a lot, my only option is to post stuff on forums or prowl elsewhere to find people who are interested.

I would also like to see more servers listed in the Hosted category if possible, but a lot of servers probably aren't going to get there anymore if people don't even know they exist.

I got to talk to Unixmad about it briefly a few weeks ago, and he seemed to have an interest in revamping the server list a bit, but nothing has happened so far. So if anyone can kind of nudge him toward doing something like that, I'd really appreciate it, and I'm sure other developers would too.

To increase player activitty I propose that we require players to beat a game of snake before being allowed access to the server list.

The 'Hosted' section should just be a list of playerworlds in development that have a playercount greater than 0.

Wouldn't that require the list to be refreshing a lot? Might cause a lot of listings to jump around if people log on and off quickly. And I'm not sure how much of a load that would put on the Login server itself.

Not a bad idea, really, but why not just have public servers listed alphabetically instead?

Had a talk with Carlito (MysticalDragon) about this, and he seems to be in favor of an 'Under Construction' section being added to the player list again. Can this please be a thing?

Ever since RC stopped showing all playerworlds and the Login Server knocked a bunch of them off the list, traffic on my server has slowed down considerably, and I can't advertise for help anywhere but on the official forums (which hardly anyone uses) and official servers, which typically have rules against doing so.

I agree 100%. Being able to see the full list of servers should at least be a 'Gold' feature.

I've always wondered why this hasn't been added before

Not sure if this is still a thing or not but http://statistics.graal.us/ shows all of the servers. Not the most convenient way of finding a server but it can help if you are actually interested in finding UC servers.

Yeah, I'm aware that's around, but it's not the first thing players go to when browsing around for servers, and doesn't help tremendously for recruiting people who want to help out. Thanks anyway for posting it, though.

But yeah. It would be fantastic to be able to use Staffonly = False to flag a server as public in the future, so people are more aware of everything Graal has to offer, even if a lot of things are a work-in-progress.

would love to see a "recently joined" section with development server where players have logged on in x amount of minutes even if it was update every 10-20mins or so for the sake of saving resources
