Not sure if this is the right place to post this. If it isn't just go ahead and let me know and I'll repost it in the proper place.
With how the expansion maps works, there is no way I could realistically support a larger server myself because the price is just too high. However I would really like to run a server with a decent sized map that people can enjoy with a smaller community. I don't care about being the "main admin" or having all the power, but I'd like to combine forces with others interested in the same ideal if possible.
Obviously we would have to talk and make sure our ideals align so we are not butting heads on anything, especially since real money is involved. I think eventually if the community was big enough we could even crowdfund it if our community was willing to donate 1 dollar each.
Anyway if you are interested leave a post here and I'll get in touch with you on a better way for us to communicate, probably Discord.
