So as you all may know, I hold horse races every friday. (or I try to, but a few have been skipped for various reasons, server crashing blah blah blah) However, while regulars and frequenters of the forums may know this, a lot of the newer folk do not. Now, typically, manual world chat advertising would work just fine for this, but as the bulk of my play time is late night when hardly anyone is on, this isnt a superb option for me personally. Thus, the races havent had a great turnout like the first one.
So theres my dilemma, and theres a multitude of possible solutions. Ideally, id like a random server announcement like the ones that show up in chat... i dunno what they're called. like "new shops at the mall!" or "new contest at: xxxx". But, since this is a lone player-run thing, i'd understand if thats a bit of a reach. So, otherwise, maybe a sign in spawn would be nice. Even if i dont get some sort of advertisement directly sponsored by the server/admins, id really really super appreciate it if maybe some of the other players spread the word for me? even when i am on during the day, my horrible memory keeps me from bringing it up. and when i do think of it, i dont want to bc spam.
Thanks everyone who's reading this! Even if you dont do anything to help, thanks for listening.
