  1. Yesterday, I logged on to Mineplex and saw that there were only 400 players online. Today I logged on, and there were only around 250 players. Seeing this server go from 40,000 players to 250 players made me wonder deeply why and how this server declined so much. One factor I believe led to the dramatic downfall of this server was the lack of content creators. At its peak, Mineplex had very respected content creators making videos on the server. Some examples include CaptainSparklez, DanTDM, ParkerGames, Stampylonghead, etc. Servers like hypixel have tons of content creators ranging from very small to very big YouTubers and it has helped out the server enormously. Therefore, Mineplex should be very focused on bringing in new content creators. You can try to push out new updates and games all you want but without someone with a platform exposing the server to the rest of the Minecraft community, this server is never going to grow substantially. It's been over 4 years since I saw a mineplex video on my youtube homepage and even If I search some up they are all from years ago and the recent ones barely get any views. It's been years since I even saw a youtube rank on the server. I don't think it's possible to get very big YouTubers to come over quite yet but this server has to start somewhere, and it should encourage content creation a lot more before the server completely dies out.

  2. Hi there,

    The staff team (including leadership) is aware of the issue regarding Youtubers /content creators. What I've heard said is that bigger Youtubers/Streamers would not want to play Mineplex because of its low player count. If the games don't start its hard to make a video where you are playing games.

    From my perspective, if new updates/fixes/and games can bring more/new players to Mineplex, there could be a chance that larger youtubers would want to make a video of playing on Mineplex. I think there needs to be an appeal for them to make videos on the server.

    As for the Official Mineplex Youtube channel, the Owners do not allow the Social Media team to use the channel, but defek7 recently stated that he would like the Social Media team to try out the youtube channel for a bit, but go to Tiktok(?) if that is unsuccessful. One of the reasons I'm doubtful the youtube channel would really help is that I believe a lot of the subscribers are old subscribers who don't actually watch the channel (after all there are no new videos). If the channel starts putting out new content theres no knowing how many of those older subscribers would come back to watch videos. Theres also no knowing how helpful it would be if the subscribers are old players who no longer play on the server.

  3. That would bring me to another point. Mineplex can't expect to grow with what they've been doing. They need to try out new things because what they've been doing obviously hasn't worked. They need more competitive games to call over more competitive players. Something that Hypixel has done well, while also making it a good experience for casuals.

  4. Like another form of advertisement, content crewtors would only be useful when mineplex is in a good state. (Meaning about a year if timmi keeps up the bug fixes and we possibly get an anticheat upgrade)

  5. That's a good point,

    But what I think the server needs is Jacoby Brisket, that guy is the undisputed GOAT and would definitely bring back thousands of players simply because of his leadership and skills.

  6. Emily (EmmaLie) stated that she does not want to do much with the youtube channel because of how saturated Minecraft content is on YT right now. TikTok is something they they want to try out though. (Either this changed or she hasn't changed her mind)

  10. Just the content I assume she means, such as "Minecraft but..." videos. I agree they should be doing things on youtube but at the end of the day it's up to her.

  11. I don't know the exact video he said it in, because I was told he said it on one of his streams. If you want to sit through his streams and sift for the information his channel is here: https://www.youtube.com/c/defek7. He mentions mineplex on some of the more recent streams.

  13. I make Mineplex Content, but I understand where you come from. Right now Java seems to be less active. I make Bedrock content on the server and it’s very enjoyable.

  14. Yeah I was talking about Java I do not know much about bedrock
