Have Servers Unlisted by Default

Recommended Posts

When you create a server, you have the option to make it visible or unlisted. By default, servers are visible, but I think that should be changed.

First of all, if you try to join a server from anywhere other than the first 2 or 3 rows on the first page of servers, about 80% of the time it'll be whitelisted, 15% of the time you'll be met with an immediate ban or kick, or sometimes people aggressively asking who you are or if you can leave, and only about 5% of the time will you be welcomed to a public server. The reason for this is because a lot of people use Minehut as a way to try to just have a server for them and their friends to play on but don't want random people to join. These people are also typically less experienced with the Minehut panel and won't know how to make their server invisible, so they'll usually just whitelist it. This results in the "join random server" button requiring about 10 tries if you're lucky, and the same for manual server exploring.

I'm predicting that a counterargument will be that new server creators will have trouble not knowing that their server isn't public. However, when someone's new to making a server on Minehut they'll already be asking tons of questions along the way, so what's one more? And if it really is a problem, I'm sure something could be done to draw more attention to the option when the server panel is opened.

In short, if servers were unlisted by default, the pages wouldn't be flooded with inaccessible servers and the experience would overall be a lot better for the server explorers and for the people who just want to play with their friends undisturbed.

Thank you for your consideration :)

It's the player's choice to unlist a server, it's their fault if they don't look at the panel before going into the server. No need to unlist servers that are new.

Sure, but those people not looking at the panel negatively affects everyone via the annoyance of trying to join a server as explained above. Unlisting them has literally no negative effects and benefits everyone involved and uninvolved.

I think they should add a notification about whitelist or unlisting when someone creates a server. That would be a good idea.

I definitely agree with you on this one. Servers should be unlisted by default.

Fair point, but oftentimes people don't look at everything on their panel. I made this mistake myself one time and people kept joining my server while it was under construction.

Good idea. What if it was on the first page you see? That could help a lot.
