Don't try to soften what really happened between Waffle and Project Roleplay and why it opened when it did. Most people know it already.
It's unbelievable how every server that gains traction manages to fuck up the same way for years on end (except for Waffle funny enough). I don't understand it, it are the same people doing the same things but still they are oblivious to the same problems.
Why don't you post server updates? People want to see server progression, they want to know that work is being done and that change is being made. They don't want to have the same limitations every roleplay server has since no development is being done (except for Waffle, they showed their development). I don't understand the excuse: "We only been doing bug fixes so that's why there are no updates (threads posted showcasing them)". Who the hell cares that there are no new things? The community wants to know that stuff is being done, no matter if they are just bug fixes. If you fix bugs, let the community know, they care, if they don't see anything they'll simply assume that nothing is being done.
Why is every roleplay server so afraid of posting updates? 400 changes you say? Why are we only allowed to know this now, when the server has taken a huge hit to the playerbase? By the time those updates hit there will only be a small fraction of the PB remaining to enjoy them.
