I know the server has certainly slowed down in the last six months or so. The server always sees a significant slow-down during the summer months, because everyone is spending less time in front of their PCs. I expect things to pick up again with autumn setting in, and winter not too far behind it. Another obvious reason for the slow down is that many of our more hard core players, myself included, played pretty frequently for several years, and have had to take a bit of a break from the game. I still check in every day, just to read over the logs and see how everyone is doing, but I don’t play nearly as much as I used to. I also check the server software and all of the plugins for updates every day, and update where possible.
I will continue to maintain this server for as long as players continue to join. 🙂
