I believe if people really want the community to grow or help the server they will review it.
I for example reviewed servers cause I really liked them and saw potential in it. Thus I thought I would help them out a little by writing a review. The more people the better (to a certain degree)! :3

Then again we all know (some) people are lazy. Some just don't care about the size of the community and just want to play the game. That is as I see it.

I also gotta agree with the others. Remind the people but don't flood them. /ho

Some people don't even know they can write reviews.  I personally never thought about it until the Admin of the server I played on suggested everyone write one.

Events. Duh.

It's like, whenever you right a review with your name on it, I'll give you this that. And also, some servers have a time-to-time advertisement. Like, please don't forget to write a review for us on RMS and stuff.

It's against the rules to reward players for writing reviews.

Or you can just ask and explain why.

/bb Please remember to write xxxxRO a review on ratemyserver.net. Just give your impressions and follow RMS guidelines.

/bb It will help the server to grow and it takes just 5 minutes. Thanks!


Repeat that once in a while but don't put it on automated broadcasters because it gets annoying. That should do it.

I think thats is more of a case-to-case basis. There are some people that are just stubborn and wouldn't make a review if there life depended upon it, but there are many people who would write a review in order to help the server. From the people who would write reviews there are also two classes, people praising the server on what it has done right and how good and awesome etc etc it is, and there is those who don't necessarily hate the server but would like to see improvements. :)

Alot of people also write reviews to that they can share there opinions about there server and possibly invite other players to come aboard :)

Most importantly, i believe that if you are trying your best and you are giving it everything you have and you try go give all your players the best time possible, then you dont have to beg players to write reviews, trust me they will write them :)

As a player, what makes me NOT want to write a review is when GMs constantly nag the players to write a review.  Don't ask too often, or much at all, since all it'll do is subject people who HAVE reviewed to your annoying insistence.  Also, a reminder at a constant, consistent place (hourly broadcasts, reminder at the patcher, ect.) will eventually be something players gloss over and entirely disregard.  You don't want THAT, do you?  Don't saturate your message and make it meaningless.

Frankly, I'd be more impressed if a server actually asked players to specifically write realistic reviews.  Too many reviews are "it's perfect in every way, 90/100" or "it's horrible in every way, 20/100".
