Just so you know, these forums are broken and you would have a vastly bigger audience on the discord. You should join it and actually help us keep CC going instead of standing on a crate and yelling to nobody. You can also meet like-minded people on LurCraft, SwitchCraft, and CodersNet, all of which I played on and talked to other players on today.
I'm already on it. Internet forums and Discord are two very different things. One is a message board, the other is a chat program. It is socially acceptable to read a forum post without commenting, but not that acceptable to read a Discord message without commenting, simply because it is all real-time.

Action #1: Eliminate "CC-only" or "Minimalist" servers. These do nothing but pander to a tiny fraction of the CC community, and often cause huge amounts of drama when people ask to add more mods.
This one's always going to be contentious either way. Personal opinion: when you have any large number of mods, the server becomes indistinguishable from any other modded server, and CC gets barely used. Restrictions breed creativity, and servers like SwitchCraft which force(d) people to use CC (and peripheral mods) for mining, item management, etc... have produced far more interesting things than most heavily modded servers.

I prefer using CC as a highly-compact Redstone substitute, not a universal machine capable of doing everything. Switchcraft died for a reason.
SwitchCraft had a bad time because of neglect from the staff members, especially since Lem left to focus on their life, CC just kept it alive.
I also absorbed most of the SwitchCraft playerbase, especially those who were annoyed about Project Beta 2 disappearing and Lur going MIA.
So my point still holds, SwitchCraft died because it was a CC-and-peripherals-only server.
It stands as a monument to CC's dark age, when the playerbase was hopeful for a new, Krist-driven future, and then disappointed when that "future" arrived and butchered anybody who were neither a con artist nor the proud owner of a supercomputer.
