Pure Vanilla Anarchy: Where Is Wolf? In the last week you may have noticed my absence from all things server and discord. You might be wondering where I went. Despite the fact that I have been busy, I have been running an experiment the last week. I wanted to monitor server growth without my direct influence.
You see before last week I did quite a bit of things to enhance server growth, such as voting, posting and interacting with the community. I made sure to answer everyones questions. I wanted to see where this server would be, and how the community would interact without my influence.
I have to say, I am slightly disappointed. While no one crashed the server, voting came to a screeching halt. Discord chatter came down to a minimum, and to some sort of a degree the server population declined. Some of this I expected, however I did not anticipate the complete decline in voting.
Why would I do this? Because I need to know what level of interaction is required for continued server growth. I like you all, but I have grand ambitions and a vision for multiple servers in the future. Yes, you heard me. MULTIPLE Servers. I have an entrepreneurial spirit, using what I've learned from marketing over the years I plan on making a series of successful anarchy servers.
To do this, I need to know exactly how much time I have to dedicate to Pure Vanilla Anarchy. Now don't get me wrong, Pure Vanilla Anarchy will always be my baby. However if I want to have multiple servers in the future, I need to exercise time management.
However, I cannot manage my time without running an experiment like this. I will always interact with the community, however if I can't manage my time even Pure Vanilla Anarchy could be a complete failure.
Additionally, I cannot over extend myself. I will only launch a new server when I believe Pure Vanilla Anarchy is in a place where it does not need me. I am not Pure Vanilla Anarchy, the community is and it needs to learn how to be self sufficient.
A brand new server will require a large amount of my time. Every new project/server will. Growing a server requires a lot of love and care. Don't get me wrong there is still a great amount of time I need to dedicate to Pure Vanilla Anarchy. As the server is just two weeks away from being two months old.
My experiment is still on going. Pure Vanilla Anarchy will be the standard for future servers. Don't feel that I am unapproachable either, while I may be the owner of the server I want to build a thriving community across all of my servers. I may not answer or respond to you right away, that is mostly to do with timezone differences.
For now I plan on keeping this a solo operation. I may in the future delegate some things to some willing people. However all of this is quite manageable at the moment. The best thing you can do if you want to help me, is VOTE!
Voting takes five minutes a day, and is one of the best things you can do to help the server grow.
In the future I plan on doing articles on the various players of Pure Vanilla Anarchy. So please let me know if you are interested in being interviewed. It will be a text interview.
Also, I want to shout out some people in the community who stream.
