Here's a reality check.

1. Exile does not need more servers.

2. Exile does not need more "server admins" who "need help".

3. *IF* Exile gets a new server, a server owner that knows how to set things up, has tons of patience with errors, dealing with problems, and how to search for them is the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM requirement for that server to have even the tiniest of chances to work. 

Exile needs more players. 

 

This may sound harsh, but helping someone out setting up a server usually goes like this:

1. You help them setup the server, explaining to them what they need to do and what they need to learn. (Usually taking hours on TS)
2. Things get rolling, and their server goes up and works perfectly.
3. They change something, and in spite of you teaching them how to "find things in the RPT" and "Backup a working version and rollback when you make mistakes", they for some reason have the memory of a 90-year old dementia patient.
4. You help them, and everything starts from point 2 again, until you lose patience and get called names and "fuck you" and a bunch of other stuff. After which they either just stop doing anything, the server (with 0 players) closes down, or they ask the same questions on these forums and some other poor helping samaritan gets to go through what I just said.

There are exceptions to this, of course. But I'm jaded as fuck.

Iv never seen so much truth in one post before. Thats why i kinda stopped making servers for people. For 1 i nerver really did it for the payout i did it more to help and cause i was bored. But all the issues that came up, the owner changes his mind and wants esseker cause frankie played on it and he likes it but oh he wants altis now cause his computer cant run esseker. I feel you bro

"People who make monetary decisions based on feelings end up poor and miserable" (My mother)

The same thing applies to people who set Exile servers up, or play hearthstone, or whatever needs to involve a solid strategy and a lot of patience. You just can't base your work on "feeling" as that is a fickle asset. If you "suddenly feel like a map change might attract more players" you're going to end up "poor and miserable" (poor being a metaphor here). 

The guys I've spoken to who lead successful servers don't change their minds every 5 days, and they certainly don't have the patience of a 12-year old with ADHD on speed. :D

Not sure why I'm shitting up this thread with this. Sorry Johnny.

That's a Shame you feel that way, My experience of the Exile servers at the moment are either failing, Bad Admins, Or money hungry AF. It's nice to see people committed to set up a server with there own funds just to play some good quality exile. That's what i'm trying to do but my knowledge of setting up a server is minimal.

There is more truth, which has been stated in various forms in various posts. First and foremost, any server owner should expect to pay for the server out their own pocket. They should never go into it relying on crowd funding, donations or monetization. If you cannot afford a servers monthly costs, do not get one. If you cannot foresee waiting the weeks or even months for the server to populate, do not get one. With the sheer number of servers available, there is going to be one that suits your needs and/or your groups needs. @Tobias Solem has the right mindset, exile needs a lot more players not another empty server that mimics what 200 other servers are doing.

Learning the code, having the patience and configuring the server are the hardest and most rewarding things an owner/admin does. Personally, I don't mind spending hours in the code, optimizing it, changing it to suit what I believe will offer the best overall experience for players. I don't mind the thankless job that as an owner/admin this entails. I ignore all the accusations from players that because I'm an owner/admin, cause we're not ever allowed to play on the server we pay for and we configured for others to enjoy. I don't mind that I pay for the server out of my own pocket and refuse to ever accept a penny from anyone under any circumstance. I've had a few people attempt to donate, I denied the payment and it was given back to them. Owning a server is nice and all, but you have to be prepared for a lot more than just owning it. There is so much more to it, you're best to ask as many questions as possible, even if they're stupid. You will ultimately learn how the server runs and how to diagnose the issues as well as fix them when shit hits the fan after Arma updates. 

Best of luck to you. ;)

 

ps: sorry for necroing a thread that is quite old.
