I don't know why such a big youtuber would be visiting a small server (Online count: 3). I would imagine someone did /nick and had another plugin for disguises. It could also be the citizens plugin. In my opinion, its fake.

The problem is audience too. Pardon me for saying this, but these days the averange minecraft player is MUCH younger than they used to be. The mindset on what they want (putting effort vs instant gratification) is very different from what was.

In the old days people rly are hosting servers to have fun with friends across the world (Kinda like NDS).
NOW? They are just money-making machines that doesn't violate the EULA.
And how did they do it? Google and install free open source plugins, combine and alter them (by "hiring" code developers with no incomes), and host the server forcing players to spend hard currency by causing gameplay disadvantages (doesn't violate the EULA directly, but well... indirectly...). Kinda like my dear Mainland China where people make replicas ( ofc, combining unrelated features) and sell them as their own brand.
I wish we can retrieve the fun that we used to have in the old days. Sadly, none of these can be reversed.
(In fact, it is still possible if somebody is willing to spend their hard-earned cash(perhaps) to host such a server.)
[This reply is completely out of shape and kinda like some mumbo jumbo (NOT the youtuber). Spend about 5 minutes to get what I'm trying to say.]

With the development of more and more plugins, especially big and popular ones like Essentials, GriefPrevention, Factions, and PermissionsEX, it's easy to forget that a server, to be special, needs to be customized and given love to. Servers like Hypixel are still great fun and have lots of players, but I do agree with you back in the spleef days where there'd be 5 people in a secret room and you'd get teleported manually. But I like to think of it this way: Hypixel gets over 50,000 players per day. Imagine how many people you'd have to pay to teleport, watch, and monitor the rules. To do it easily, they just developed plugins to automate it all.
Hypixel spent a lot of time customizing and designing their server to be unique at the time it was made, and it still is unique. The issue comes when people want to make servers like Hypixel and these big popular servers. Most of these server hosters don't understand that it takes a lot of time, dedication, and customization to actually make a good server. I used to play on a server called MCTopia, which was a server with plugins but had an experience like survival. Over time I donated, got higher ranks, and even almost became staff at one point, I knew everyone. And then one day it just crashed (not literally, figuratively). The community died out to larger, new servers with tons of plugins and customizability. Nowadays, there just isn't much respect or demand for these servers that just copy Hypixel.
Of course, there are lots of servers out there that do put in this dedication, but the issue is that they end up getting shoved to the back of server lists from all of those that just constantly say "vote vote vote for me!". This is why when I'm searching for servers, I start at the back of the list and go forward. (Of course, skipping past those hundreds of servers that are offline). Nonetheless, I think servers nowadays are still very good and fun, they've just been died down from the fact that the same plugins get used every time, and there's not much customization in the configurations of what these plugins can actually do.

Well, I tend to agree. Most server owners seem to be under the impression that slapping a bunch of plugins together and building a nice looking hub or spawn is enough to provide some decent gameplay, while in fact there really isn't anything special like a specific design on the server at all. It's just a collection of plugins, which you could easily have put together yourself. Most don't even seem to bother customizing it. Well, maybe apart from all the annoying advertisements you get to try and motivate you to vote for them or even better: buy custom items.
However, I don't think it's the servers which became worse, it's simply that the whole server "market" has become completely oversaturated.
There are also plenty of servers which have come of a good age (think 3 - 5 years old) and are still quite enjoyable today. Of course, 'enjoyment' is in the eye of the beholder, as always. I'm still very much into vanilla'ish survival play so a decent survival server is already enough to get me entertained, but I can well imagine that this might not apply to other players.
But to answer: I obviously prefer todays servers, because the older servers won't provide you with all the new stuff we have today.

This project was made in this summer and last one with about 7000h work. We got the basemap from the Swedish map autority (Lantmäteriet), 6000x6000 blocks with correct height-data. Every block represent 1x1x1m. We got correct height-data of every building in the city from the local goverment. And was sponsored from "Ljungbergsfonden" with money to build a server and bought 50 Minecraft accounts (there should be a easier way to buy bulk accounts, took me a looong night to fix it). The Minecraft-builders where between 10-18 years old.
What do you think of the result?
