    There are many reasons. But i think the real people to blame are us the players. Latley as i have been on i have noticed very toxic threats and conversations. Also When the server closed many players just didint check back. When tyler was banned many players where furious and left. Me as a player who has been playing for 3 years has seen the drop first hand. We can only hope it gets better. Im doing what ever i can for new players. (showing my friends)

    no.
    It is the owners and nothing but the owners' fault.

    It accounts for us, the players, actions. We have indeed being very hostile, and anything but patient. This has no doubt made other members just want to stop playing, along with influencing staff members to lose interest. Remember, the question is why did Mt's population drop. Not why has the entire server got gone the toilet. But I do agree its largely the fault of the owners for being completely god dam useless *cough* I mean inactive, not giving anyone else file access, thus preventing any change to happen in game.

    I guess you have a point - but they had a chance as soon as they bought the server. They blew that chance during the large amount of time it took minetime to get off the blacklist.

    Another point is prison. Prison needs a reset desperately and is loosing minetime players because of it - it could take less than a day to reset it as they basically already have the map done and just need to do world guard, regions and a bunch of other rank/mine/prison/multiverse stuff.

    Not having kits on skyblock also loses players - its really not that hard to add a kit crate as an option you receive with voting. Cyp said he was getting a 'plugin made' that would allow kits to be added back to skyblock, but that was over a month ago. So much for that.

    uploading and importing schematic/world for prison map
    making prison ranks/copying config of already existent prison ranks to new server
    ^ pex permissions, inheritance and other thangs
    doing worldguard regions
    creating free world + end world
    prison mines

    ik its a bunch more but personally i dont think it would take that long. the map is basically already done last time i saw it and they managed to create a new skyblock reset within LESS than a day, so prison wouldn't really take that long either I believe. it's something even i could do, probably. idk why it is taking them so long inactivity and effort aside.

    @Kyleep, @Yoowy and @Snorlax, I'm not saying xBMAN is the most veteran staff member in total time being staff. He was staff in 2013. Tyler only became staff in early 2015
