Set up a Trading Post on Neo Mushroom Island and/or Spawn City.
Could do actual trades like Swarley set up for a couple of us previously: sign a book so we know the proper person picked it up.
Then on the forum we could put: WTB/WTS/WTT and what we're looking for and offering.
Like, for me, WTT diamonds & blank books for specific enchant books..
I assume diamonds/emeralds would be the big currencies... but could just as easily do X# of Granite for X# of Diorite... whatever the user(s) negotiate.
Could even negotiate services. "I need such and such from location xyz but don't want to go there myself. I will give ______ if you pick it up." or "I'm not technically inclined so I will sell Romy's soul for a _____ machine." lol
Perhaps even he senior members could act as a middle man if needed?
If anyone else would use it, of course.
Figured as our server appears to be slowly growing this would especially be useful as we get more and more members.
Be kinda nice to make a building in the spirit of Neo's Trading Hut or whatever it is for where transactions take place.
If we've lost a lot of members since before I joined (and if any after) maybe we could do...
Well Final Fantasy 11 has this "Return to Vana'diel" campaign. Members that haven't logged played in awhile get like a week's free, unrestricted subscription to come back and play. Gives users a good chance to see how things have changed.
Maybe we could do something like that?
Set up some events, games, prizes/rewards.
Maybe a free week of Advance membership for those who stay active on the server that week (so it's not just log in once for the free membership).
Would give everyone a chance to see how the server (and potentially Minecraft itself) has changed since the last time they logged in.
Could also combine it with a New Member campaign to welcome both the old and the new.
Maybe host another contest or two for free copies of the game for those who don't already have it the week before the event kicks off?
