    Try running a contest/community build on creative first, just so you get an idea of how to go about this.

    I would imagine that for a project like this, you would need 8-a dozen people of about Builder II level (building skill, not necessarily rank), who are committed and who are prepared to work on it on a regular basis.

    So it looks like we have a number of varied opinions on what server we should do. From what I see, we're down to this.

    - Voltz/Infamy pack
    - Some sort of Magic pack
    - a rotation of different packs/maps

    I had this crazy idea where we could rotate maps/packs on a regular rotation with a goal for each one. Whoever accomplished the goal (or the top 3) would recieve points to entered into a raffle. After X number of rotations there would be a drawing the winner would receive a copy of "Watch Dogs" or something similar (paid by me). Of course, a lot of details would have to be thought out, but enough of my random thoughts.

    Looking forward to hearing what you all might want.

    Great idea! I'd take a copy of Starbound, if you have any stashed in your fabulous dino cave.

    Sounds like the idea of a rotation is quite popular, with it being based around something competitive.

    Yeeees, precisely. Keen observation legend, very keen.

    these new server additions would only split up the already diminished server population.
    I need to stop being so negative though.

    As much as it sucks to say, thats actually extremely true. Each time we've added a new server, whether it be tekkit, vanilla, or FTB, it seems like a huge part of the population migrates over, and we don't gain any new players or any tighter of a community at all, we just lose them.

    I like divine RPG. New enemies, new weapons, new worlds, armor, TONS OF NEW THINGS! And, I like it because it is simpler for me to understand than all the tech stuff. "How do I get electricity easily? Make a thermo-something generator and attach the doohicky to the the thingamabobber to get electricity!" or "How does this gun shoot corrupted bullets? Magic."

    I agree with the splitting the server population, I vote the rotation of mini games

    Why not just add more to SG As it is Creative has a super large guest flow through. Survival gains in intervals. FTB is pretty much the core people who've been their for a long time. It'd be easier to add to SG and not open another server.

    If I may could we do something with hexxit?

    EDIT: Furthermore on the hexxit I have some other shadecrest members mention it and think they would like the idea :). I also have some friends that are looking for a hexxit server so it would be good if I could lead them over to shadecrest :)
    Check it out and let me know what you guys think :)

    I would have to agree with you there but I believe adding maybe one of the new mod-packs as the new server because if they are new there won't be as many servers out there but more people looking for one. I've also noticed that friend groups tend to join servers like that and instead of attracting one person it might attract a good group of players. So once again I'm still suggesting Hexxit or will other people suggest maybe a different mod-pack :)

    EDIT: I know of at-least 6 people (Australians :3) that would play probably more and are looking for specifically a hexxit server :3
