Econarchy Promotion Strategy
#1
People have been asking me how I plan to promote the Economy server, so I'm going to post the strategy here. Also having it here helps me keep track of where I'm up to.

I actually meant to start promoting a couple of months ago (which would have been perfect timing) but as most of u know, I have bipolar so sometimes I disappear for a while.

At time of writing, the server has a very low amount of active players so I'm going to be putting a lot of time and effort into promoting for the next month or so.

Step One
Updating and Bumping the existing Anarchy promotion threads

The Anarchy server has seen a dip in population this year and I'd hate to see it fade away when we've put so much effort into it. It's not close to dying yet tho... there's still a good crowd of people playing at the weekends so new players who join will receive a decent welcome. I expect a bit of crossover of new Anarchy players trying out Econarchy.

Step Two
Creating new promotional threads for Econarchy

Straight up promoting the concept in dedicated subforums for sharing minecraft servers. Some sites only allow one post per network, so for these i'll have to talk about Econarchy as a reply to our Anarchy posts.

Step Three
Discussing minecraft related topics and mentioning MineTexas Econarchy

For example I'll post an enchanting guide on a forum, but mention how you might want to adjust the method if playing on econarchy. I'll do the same with discussions on trading and mining.

Step Four
ChadDX Youtube Channel

Don't get the wrong idea, this will be nothing big and I'm not trying to get into youtube like FitMC. I don't want any fame/money from youtube, just a small and reliable trickle of players coming to the server for the right reason. First video will be about how i started out (on 2b2t), second video will be about what i did on Minetexas Anarchy, then videos after that will be Econarchy blended with some beautiful music played by yours truly.

Have posted a reply to our existing Minetexas Anarchy thread at
https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/se...e-currency
1160 views before posting this reply
edit: just checked the rules of that forum and it seems I can't post a dedicated thread for econarchy as it's on the same network, so i'll have to make a new main post promoting anarchy and economy.





This server was really good for trading in June 2016... everyone was using diamond blocks as currency (we refer to this as the db era). Spawn was also taken over and a group of people were charging a toll to pass through unhindered... was top kek! Server also had a good 50 players online at peak times.

Then in November 2016 the Drop Dupe glitch was discovered and used heavily. The economy of course crashed and a lot of players left because it was their favorite part of the server (even some who used the glitch left). Now the server is back down to roughly 5-10 people online.

I'd still recommend it as a cool place to play as it's been running for 5 years now and is full of history... but if you're more interested in the economy side of stuff we have a new server on the same network, just type /economy or connect to the ip: economy.minetexas.com

It's very similar to the db era of the anarchy server in the way that diamonds are currency and that hacks and griefing is allowed, but the main difference is you can make a faction and claim land. There is also a safezone around spawn for player-shops (only admin shop is the bank that buys and sells diamonds for $1)

Hope to see u online!
