Man this thread is so interesting for me, I just have to make the first comment after almost 1,900 clicks on this crasher oneliner asking the oldest question in Live for Speed crashkid history
I currently run many research operations in terms of how powerful people in various communitys react on Content that might be more, or less relevant. Things I must know are click amounts, view times, the spread from the source to other places, release time relevance, longlivity... I could go on now with a huge textwall but im going to spare you at this point.
What I just want to say is... and excuse me for the language I use now... HOW the F.CK is a Crashkidoneliner of this magnitude able to generate almost 2k clicks in that short timeframe.
Since the Editor and Mod releases its nothing new to me, that LFS content even outperforms content from games like War Thunder with 150k users online 24/7 and Channels with up to Millions of people following.
The interest is there, and only few people know how powerful the community really is.
Yet this community only fails hard at one very important thing. The interest is there, the content spreads to places you wouldnt even think of, viewtimes naturaly explode, because interested racers want to see the actual race.
The only problem LFS content has at the moment is exactly what is happening on this thread.
People click the heck out of this meaningless oneliner question, a clickrate most real LFS content uploaders dream of to grow further.
Yet the community doesn´t reward it. Its the same thing as clicking this thread 2.000 times and noone says anything. Not even something stupid for like half a month.
The exact same reaction uploads with substance and real value for the Community get. People want to see it, click it and view it. Yet they are unable to do the one, but most important thing. Just click one button with their mouse and Like the **** thing, they were interested in anyways.
I will stop this very necessary little rant here now and will make one step forward and answer with my best ability to the topic of this thread
Hey mate, I just have my own server project in the making atm which will be kind of the first serious Bike Racing 24/7 server in the very close future.
I already did a hand full test runs to get minor clues about the interest people have in a server like this.
These tests went very very well and I met lots of people on the server rather quick.
Heck and im sure you wouldn´t ever guess it. But literally the second dude that joined the first pure Bike Racing Server in the game kind of refused to stay on two wheels, because I had the vehicle options deactivated on purpose.
When I do things i do them 100%, so I also want to know the amount of stupid Im going to have to deal with.
Currently a guy on a pure Motorbike server, that is unable to stay on 2 wheels as well as refuses to put his 4 wheel vitals into my Motorbike first gets a nice warning ingame. 3 times. 1) nice. 2) still nice but serious. 3) the honest reality in his face.
The server is new, so even Idiots get 3 Chances atm.
However, if he subject fails the reality in his face thing, he gets a one day full ban and he just archieved the "was banned one day - reason" tag that the server wont ever forget.
He may rejoin after 24h. The user gets the chance to realise his previous behavior was granted with "no comment bann" after failing the reality test.
If he still thinks he has to make a statement into the wrong direction the "no comment 1 week bann" follows.
On my server this is the last Chance bann. If after one full week the user still thinks he is gonna win this round he recieves a permanent bann for his account and the only thing the user might be able to do is licking my admin arse to oblivion.
I dont know what type crasher from the examples here you are, because you dont go into further detail on the issue
But if you are still banned after 2000 people clicked it and you still can not connect to the server I would strongly advice you to seek out the admin arse you will lick to oblivion and if you want to do me a real favor for being the first one talking to you with maximum respect, please create another Thread for that, where you just follow this genius conclusion i came up with here
Because i carry enormous interest in the clickrates the licking oblivion arse is able to unleash.
Have a nice day
