A quick few suggestion -

Advertise before the server is released. A good amount of people like playing the server as it comes out, makes it way more fun.

Have a voting plugin, should you choose to have voting, and register it to a bunch of top lists. It always helps a bit. :)

Perhaps having a website makes things look more professional, showing potential players that you mean business and you won't be another server that's down in a month.

Anyway, that's just my 2 cents, nice thread. :)

Nice post you got there! :D

Just one thing: you might want to provide a bit more detail on what to include in a server topic. A list plus short descriptions would be fine. Here are a few suggestions:
  - Server Name
  - Short description
  - IP address (Duh)
  - Website
  - Screenshots
  - Server rules
  - List of all the server/website staff

I’m pretty sure I’m overlooking quite a few things, but those are the basics. Other than that, nice post!

Never trust websites that don't actually have a published domain...

I know this post has gotten old, but I will continue the post and make it better off suggestions.

Added the section "What websites to trust and untrust. Also, what are they for?" to the list. Accepting more recommendations.

What a server should be sure to offer is also a special aspect. There are far too many Hunger games servers, Factions servers and so on. Instead, recommend people to focus on what they could do to stand out from the rest. A custom plugin, a custom map, a special type of gameplay, a fun plugin that allows something unusual/special. Well, basically something special.

Correct. Make variety of servers and game types. Having the same one will not benefit you whatsoever.

The reason to that could vary. First off, why did they leave? That's your question. Find a solution to that problem and find a better solution, a better way of it.

My server just wont grow... Can you check out my mcf post to see what's the problem? My website is in my post, and the url of my post in in my banner (I made that myself, nice huh? :D)

The server is currently down for server maintenance, it will be back up soon...

I am also trying to make a plugin as well as offering signature services to advertise my server, not sure if that's a good idea or not...

That is a good signature, but I wouldn't post the owner (no disrespect) on your banner. It takes away the momentum and space. You could add details about your server in that corner ;)

Now coming to your post, everything seems legit. Provides excellent information about the server and a big greeting.
