Wipe Schedule Poll Results:

UPDATE: Almost immediately following the move to monthly wipes, the server population absolutely crashed. Halfway through the second month of monthly wipes, the decision was made to move us back to wiping on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.  Prior to the shift, we would see average primetime populations in the 12-15 range.  After the shift, we were fortunate to see more than 7. Since moving back to wiping every fortnight, we’re seeing primetime populations in the 20-30 range.  Going forward, we’ll keep to biweekly wipes.


The results are in, with a landslide victory in favor of a monthly wipe schedule!  70% of respondents voted in favor of moving from wiping on the first and third Thursday of each month to only wiping on the first Thursday of each month. The people have spoken! Prepare to dig in for a long haul, people!

We will, of course, keep an eye on server performance as we see larger and larger bases as well as population and may need to review changes after a couple of wipe cycles. As always, encourage your fellow Serenity Valley residents to participate on the forum, and recruit friends to our server! Keeping that population and participation up are how we know we’ve got a healthy server.

Thank you to everyone who voted!  Don’t forget to spread the word, invite your friends, or simply share word of our server around on the various Steam and Rust forums and discussion groups!
