Our community's growing by the day. As such, it's getting harder and harder for friends to play with one another on the same team in a game, or just amongst themselves without pubs, random strangers and the occasional ribald internet douche-nozzle.

We have more servers than we know what to do with, now. Therefore, what do you guys think about remaking TFP #5 into a new setup known as a 'Kinda-Sorta Private' server? Tentative title, I know. Here's the skinny:

The server is passworded, with the password being changed weekly (every Saturday morning) and updated in the forum's password thread.

The server setup will be identical to TFP #1 through #3, with all its perks. THe main difference is that a group of friends that wants to get together (or someone who wants a space to bring friends in on) can use it without worrying about a load of strangers and unknowns jumping in as well.

Being a Kinda-sorta Private server, Its rules can be laxer than TFP 1 2 and 3 as far as dicking around, HLSS, etcetra.

Players on the server can give the Password-of-the-Week to whomever they wish to join them in the game.

Well? Keep in mind that this is just a proposal to see whether our players like the idea or not, and depending on response, we may go ahead with it. Your feedback is very much welcomed.

Sounds like a good plan, definitely will cut down on the ass-hattery.
Oh crap, is it coward-killing time already?

I thought on the alternative of making the server groupexclusive (requiring you to be in the group), and that you don't need a password.

However this is way more work than a password that changes now and then.
