    At any given time we have 50-100~ guests browsing here, and our only links to our server is hidden away on the front page no one visits, and the servers section no one but server admins check.

    Let's put a way to get to the server where people will actually see it, so that people can easily find us and join in whenever we play, and we can tap into those guests a bit.

    Also it'd be pretty great if the server would advertise the steam group, and tell people to come to the site if they want to learn to make their own maps, you know, grow the community and stuff.

    As I said to you Sel, I'm going to stick a thread up about site suggestion when I have free time and we have people actually willing to put time into work on the site. Also the server stuff is something on a to-do list of mine but it's just not high priority, maybe after steampipe and the suspected map workshop and the changes as a site we'll need to make for that.

    on topic of hidden links, maybe im just being blind but i could never find a way to contest sites or content packs without having to find the appropriate thread first

    now that i think of it its sufficient actually, but five minutes ago i considered that to be somewhat inconvenient

    Yup your right, there's no static links to those on the site really other than the relevant Contest threads or announcement thread for the prop packs. There is the official wiki which links to most of them though
