    posted a message on Staying on a Server
    Hey! That's the best question I've ever seen here. Check out these guidelines. This is from my experience running all types of game servers and communities.

    1) The Community - You should feel welcomed when join and know that when you go back you'll feel like you're at home.

    2) The Staff - Are they helpful? Do they recognize you as a player or as a number? A good staff team treats minecraft as a business and the customer is always right. I very good staff team doesn't abuse control (power tripping) and is a major part of the community. Fun, friendly, understanding and forgiving are key traits for staff members.

    3) The Technical - Check the status of the server on minestatus, a popular long running server list. It will tell you average uptime. Join a server that has 99%+ uptime and has been running for a long time. This search sorts by "listed for": https://minestatus.n...t&direction=asc

    4) The Website - Check out the servers website. Does it look clean? Chances are a well designed website also means a well designed server. Check the posts in the forums and see what type of community you'll be joining.

    5) The Safety - Are you protected? Is the server doing anything to protect your Minecraft builds? Look for a server with grief protection, land claming, and anti-hack plugins. Also, ask the server owner if data is backed up in more than one location. If data is backed up regularly you won't have to worry about loosing your work (possibly years of work) if the server gets hacked.
