I think it's worth noting that the title of the thread, while initially correct, is no longer so.
We've decided to downgrade to 48 slots, not because the amount of server space or because the quality changed, but because we simply do not need 64 slots at this current time. The server is still fresh and new and has a lot of empty, unexplored space.
EDIT: Scratch that. I must be hallucinating or something. The title is fine as it is.
... I am really off my game.
