[Added]Send emails for updates and other events
« on: December 11, 2018, 06:26:47 am »
To the average player who's visited here a few times, who visits infrequently, or played here in the past, the improvements to our little server might not be obvious, as well as the various events that go on. I know some people might view it as spam, but I think tastefully-done emails detailing server improvements, temporary changes (like everyone being able to use VIP weapons at the moment), and server events (for example, PPLV's party) might remind people that this community is still alive and well, and/or get them jonesing for some PTP.

I think it would also be better to more frequently create update topics-- I know in my case, they encourage me to start playing again to test out the new improvements.

Agreed. I saw this feature on many other servers. Like the recent holiday update could be announced by sending the message through mail.

Great idea , but i'd prefer if it was by PMs on the forum , or a Pinned Message on the home page that everyone can see it (could be hidden as well)

Players will eventually come back to the forum to know about it so yeah this would be preferred.

Do birds count as email services ?

PTP is alive only because of those 60 players that are either VIPS,staff members or clan members or friends that sometimes either play or annoy some people and lets call the whole group ACTIVE players

About 10+ newbies or players looking for server come each day to find a new home. But everytime they are thrown away like garbage by these ACTIVE Players.
Some ACTIVE players even jack them out of helicopters or cars if theyre waiting for them. None of you show any interest in being either theyr friends/clan mates or more and even harrase them call them cheaters report them or immidietly target them and kill them after you see them.

I have no idea how do you want to increase the peoples interest in sending update emails to the forums pms or emails.
Might as well make a comercial on youtube to join the server, costs like 1.000$ peer video

There's a newsletter option on the forums, so I guess we'll try that in the future. I forgot to do it last time though, so if I don't do it next time, please remind me about it :)
