Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I know I'll probably have an accusation of clique-mindedness or other such ad hominem thrown my way for this, but I feel like it's something we need to talk about. As I write this, Bay is currently on the hub. There are 79 people on the server, and in total there's around 1600 people playing SS13-- An increase of around 600-700 people compared to what it was a month or go, give or take. In the long term, this is a good thing-- More people means more a bigger ss13 community, and also even more roleplayers to create stories with here on Bay. However, in the short term, I feel like we need to limit the amount of exposure Bay has to the ssethtide- Over the last few days, we've seen a pretty incredible increase of people joining with no intention of roleplaying in mind. Evil Poopman, Adolf Hitler, Sistafista, GREASE MAN JOE, etc, are just a few of the names of characters I've seen joining. At the same time all of this is happening, administration is trying to increase our RP quality here on server- Problem is that this is a difficult thing to achieve, let alone with the aforementioned influx occurring. While hublisting was a necessity around a year ago, to compensate for declining player counts, it's not as necessary now-- In fact, I feel that hublisting is decreasing server quality as long as the ssethtide is occurring. I don't want us to never return to the hub-- But a week or two without it? I think that's a reasonable course of action. A slower-paced round once in a while is nice, and as someone who can only play a round or two a day during primetime, it's something I missed.
