Why is the link to the forum not in the main page? I remember pointing that out like a year ago and it got added. But now it's gone again. Will a few extra bytes of bandwidth put the server on fire? I know it's not too hard to find it to a newbie (google), but still. Another things is that MORE stuff should be pinned and documented. People keep asking where to find the mIRC dll, mIRC server ect...For example http://forum.vicecitymultiplayer.com/index.php?topic=1586.0 should be definitely pinned.

Quote from: SugarD on April 09, 2011, 05:08:29 AM1) I already answered the "you can help by playing the mod" thing in my original post. I do play, but it's extremely difficult for me to because of all the bugs in it. Most other users would have given up by now.2)You guys are losing an unbelievable amount of players just by not fixing such small things. Most people don't even know what URL the website uses. You3) All these huge things only need simple fixes, and would improve the mod's playerbase immensely. 4) Right now you only have dedicated users playing, and that can only last so long with all of this information hidden.

One is the official one, that supports PAWN primarily. The other is one which support Squirrel primarily (something that is not backed by the VC:MP devs and therefore cannot be included in the first). The third is an independently made polish wiki, something completely outside of the dev's or anyone else's control.

Quote from: Charleyutton on April 10, 2011, 01:31:07 AM3) I agree with this, but why do you think that after years of asking it's all of a sudden going to happen now? What I tried to put across in the last topic and what I'm trying to say here is that the making of these kinds of discussions is futile. The dev's either don't give a fuck or don't have time to give a fuck about reading through all this shit when they consider putting the small amount of time that they can dedicate into actually developing the game, instead of listening to its players. It's been the story of VC:MP for the last few years and if you played it regularly then you'd understand that too.
Quote from: Charleyutton on April 10, 2011, 01:31:07 AM4) Just plain and simply wrong. Again, if you played VC:MP more you'd realise actually dedicated players are in a tiny minority compared to random one or two time players who pick it up, get bored of it and move on. The real problem is that there is not currently a server that balances newbies and regular players to an effective level. Currently all servers are balanced more or less either one of two ways. This means the servers balanced towards regulars are deserted, and the servers balanced towards newbies are full of just that: newbies. Of course there are a couple of exceptions to the rule, some regulars still enjoy the more newbie gameplay balance and that is why we're still here. Some of us are actually working towards improving this situation by making servers that have long term playability coupled with short term basic freedom-based enjoyment.
Quote from: Charleyutton on April 10, 2011, 01:31:07 AMAs I said before, I like the fact that you're motivated enough to complain about such issues, I just wish that you would learn more about VC:MP before you make snap judgements about its situation. I must say I have become a pessimist in regards to the official side of VC:MP. But as I've said time and time again, the unofficial side is growing and growing.
QuoteThe playercount rising doesn't necessarily mean players are staying to play.
QuoteThe player dedication I've seen has been overall from the same general users in the same servers for some time.
