I think whitelistweekend is a very good idea the way m4ttl describes. Its at least worth a shot. Out of curiosity though, if someone joins will they get a message like "whitelist weekend, whitelist at..."?

If so I think that would increase the chances of people actually whitelisting.

They get the usual message "You are not whitelisted. Register at www.oldschooldayz.net" when kicked. Also we will add "Whitelist" to the server name during the weekend.

Please do "WE Whitelist" or weekend whitelist (if it fits)

I did not get a message like this yesterday, but my friend did.

Ironically enough, I went through the process to get whitelisted, but he did not.

Any news on this topic? I think Oldschool is the last big hardcore Server outside Australia, Russia and USA since DayZ Underground has closed its EU Server. Hope you can stay up til beta, anyway big shoutout to the whole team especially to n4ttl and Aim-iliO for their work and dedication.

Thanks a lot ladies we apreciate it very much. Meanwhile I am personaly playing some tarkov and watching any news about Dayz. We are fighting with the devs to see if the Reserved Slots will work again with the next patch. The VIP system has to return.

Agreed, the VIP system was excellent. It stayed for almost no time at all it feels like.

Three months money to go. If the Bohemians release .63 within that time we can stay a little bit longer. If not, we will close down. Sorry.

The actual payment goes until 27.05.  . After that we will be able with the last cents to pay for an other 3 months. Than the comunity money will be out.

That sounds very scary to me, to say the least. Who knows when and for how long 0.63 will be on experimental before finally coming to stable and things hopefully get better... :(
Can Oldschool become a 1st person experimental server once the update gets to that point, and then switch back to the normal version later? I know that was not possible in the past, but watching a Twitch-streamer the other day I understood that this option might be available for the upcoming update (but I have to say that I´m also not sure if I got that correctly...).

From the latest status report:

Don’t forget that as soon as we hit experimental, customer servers will be able to switch over.

I was planning on waiting for 0.63 to be stable but it seems this is better than nothing. From what I have seen in the last few weeks 0.63 is nowhere near a stable release.

Just to make things clear: I really wanna DayZ succeed and I wanna Oldschool come back and grow. However I have no idea if it will happen. I also think that a working beta/0.63 is months away.  If it is possible to switch over to experimental we will do it. BUT it depends on donation money to fund the servers. If there is nobody funding the server I will shut down. In the last four years I paid almost two years of server fees on my own, the rest was donation money. This is more than 5000 Euros we spent on Oldschool since we started. The work for website, coding stuff, community management not included.

So lets hope the best for this community but also expect that it might come to an unexpected end. Totally depends on what Bohemia is delivering. The recent announcement that Hicks is leaving lets me fear the worst though.
