Requirements:
+ 25x-150x for Base and Job, 5-35x for Items.
+ Extended Classes are not hobby-classes [Actually useful for something, at least in PVM (i.e. I can start one as my first character and reliably hunt with it)]
+ Dungeon/Field Warper
+ All Dungeons don't require that you complete Quests to access'em [Somatology Laboratory, Moscovia Dungeon, Amatsu Dungeon, etc.]
+ Renewal Client
+ @go, @storage
+ Feelings resetter [preferably as @command, grudgingly accepting zeny-sink NPC]
+ Lack of aggression on server [I've left too many good servers because of relentlessly-hateful people.]
+ Primarily-, if not entirely-English-speaking Community [Separate forums for languages is alright, but I won't join a German server [i.e.] and be burdened by language barriers rendering me unable to read a guide/updates/etc.]
+ Absolutely NO MVP Cards for sale through NPCs, even if just for PVM purposes.

Will not accept, don't post if:
- 3rd Jobs are implemented in the server
- Levels are anything above 150/70
- Rates are anything below previously stated [with allowances, see below]
- Rates are anything above previously stated
- MVP Card rate is at or above 1% [Must must must must must be lower than .75%, preferably .1%]
- Renewal [beyond client-only]
- Premium Accounts of any kind [Donate $x or vote for a month straight to get certain @commands]
- @warp is implemented, simply no real need for an overpowered command like that in the hands of players
- Yggdrasil Item usage on WoE/PVP maps
- @storage usage on WoE maps
- Custom items [Within reason, nothing above +10 To All Stats]
- Working God Items [Sleipnir, Megingjard, etc.]
- WINGS. UGLY ****ERS. DO NOT WANT. Usually imba to boot. NO.
- Convex Mirrors are implemented. Most of the fun of MVPing goes away when they come into play; finding the MVPs.
- Non-English server; no Brazilian/Pinoy servers please [As in UI/NPCs are in non-English, or most of the players cannot comprehend English or choose not to communicate with each other in it; Speaking to the server in English but to friends in a foreign language is okay]
- MVP Cards are for sale through NPCs, even if just for PVM purposes. [insurance purposes, if someone does this anyway I can btslap them for not reading.]

Would like to see [will boost chances of joining]:
~ 99/70 max level
~ Extended Classes on-par DD-wise with Transcendent Classes in PVM situations [Padded stat bonuses for killing power without Hatred]
~ Star Gladiators getting some love
~ Full Field/Dungeon Warper [All floors of every dungeon, every Field (Except MVPs, perhaps)]
~ x1 MVP Card rates
~ Polite community [if not helpful]
~ Little to no moderation of expression/speech [I hate client censorship and I hate being told to watch my language.]
~ Lord Kaho's Horns implemented
~ Community willing to cooperate with each other in many situations, mostly partying for levelling, but otherwise being courteous with each other
~ Non-bandwagoning GMs [Sub-GM:"Head Admin says this, so I say it too because they're right/because they're my butt-buddy!111!!1!!!!1 [/fangirl]"]
~ Team coordination required to MVP; soloing MVPs is boring and retarded.
~ No strange/new ways to level [Old player, cba to learn new methods; I know how to level vanilla, and would like to not be punished for doing so (read as: Levelling slower than everybody else because I stick to old methods versus their confusing new methods)]
~ Organized MVPing/Semi-buffed MVPs; I like seeing MVPing teams and hate seeing solo Godmode 99m-Asura Champions killing anything they see in one hit.

[Below]
If a server somehow possesses all of the requirements and quite a few of the Optionals [read as: Would like to see:], the rate would not matter all that much to me, so long as the levels stay between 99/70 and 150/70, WITHOUT 3rd Jobs.

--------------------------------

Seems like a really strict list, donchaknow; but quite a few of these terms are flexible within reason; it depends on what is given in return for taking something away.

Servers with third jobs are an automatic no unless they magically have my entire Requirements and Would Like to Sees down to the last letter [Minus the obvious 150/70 going against max 99/70 WLTS]. Even then, they have to have a separate WoE from Transcendents or it's an instant no.

Team-MVPing/Quality WoEing [read as: Actually organized and not OMGLETSZERGRUSHEVERYTHINGINSIGHT] is my focus. I want to work with others, but refuse to work with ignorant/lazy people.

I want to see your server at a glance. I don't want just your rates and max levels/bare minimums for recruitment. If furnished with said information, I will near-immediately disregard your advertisement; I want to know central changes you've made from Retail and to what extent, as well as how close you are or are not to what I would like to see.

Seeing as people can't sell their servers correctly, please quote this post and directly answer ALL requirements/optionals/refusals, without shorthanding [leave the quote in its' original state, except for your answers]. Failure to do so will result in me blacklisting your server for joining upon seeing something missing.

Longthread;dr :

Here you are, lurkers/advertisers. My reason/s for considering/denying joining the servers that advertised in this thread, so the lurkers don't have to go through the entire thread and the advertisers can learn where others screwed up.

Currently-blacklisted servers [Do not post again, 0 desire to join]:
-InfinityRO - MVP-card-selling NPC/s, uh no thanks; shorthanded Will Not Accepts, Would Like to Sees
-EmperiumRO - Apparently disregarded my Will Not Accepts, Would Like to Sees
-BlazeRO - Foreign main language, no thanks. [.de domain/guides in foreign languages being my reasoning]
-UtopiaRO - blatantly disregarded my Refusals and posted despite not meeting all Requirements without the safety-blanket that is my Refusals, then editing their post to 'add more information' despite STILL overlooking the Refusals section.

Keep going.... [Give me more information]:
NeuRO [Almost sold here, give me reasons to ignore those certain people and join anyway.]

Ohh boy... here goes!

Hello, there! I am Secret Duckie and I'm a GM for NeuRO! I'd like to welcome you to give us a shot because we meet basically all of your requirements, and we love having new players join! We're a newer server, just over 2 months old, and already have an active population of 400+ with a peak of 541 (peaked today, actually! We get new peaks every couple of days). So now I'm going to go through your list specifically!

Quote
Requirements:
+ 25x-150x for Base and Job, 5-35x for Items. Check! 50x/50x/25x with floating rates up to 75x. Doing a 100x event at the moment to celebrate our anniversary and reaching 500+ players!
+ Extended Classes are not hobby-classes [Actually useful for something, at least in PVM (i.e. I can start one as my first character and reliably hunt with it)] I think this is a check! I suppose it's what you make of it, but I have seen some people using them frequently.
+ Dungeon/Field Warper Check!
+ All Dungeons don't require that you complete Quests to access'em [Somatology Laboratory, Moscovia Dungeon, Amatsu Dungeon, etc.] Check!
+ Renewal Client Check!
+ @go, @storage Check!
+ Feelings resetter [preferably as @command, grudgingly accepting zeny-sink NPC] Check! NPC in main town.
+ Lack of aggression on server [I've left too many good servers because of relentlessly-hateful people.] Well, they are competitive, but I wouldn't say outright aggressive. O:

Will not accept, don't post if:
- 3rd Jobs are implemented in the server None for us!
- Levels are anything above 150/70 99/70
- Rates are anything below previously stated [with allowances, see below] Check!
- Rates are anything above previously stated Check!
- MVP Card rate is at or above 1% [Must must must must must be lower than .75%, preferably .1%] Check! .03%
- Renewal [beyond client-only] Check! Client only, no third jobs or crazy renewal stats.
- Premium Accounts of any kind [Donate $x or vote for a month straight to get certain @commands] Check! Donations and voting get kawaii headgears and other items like name change tickets and foods.
- @warp is implemented, simply no real need for an overpowered command like that in the hands of players Check! No @warp here!
- Yggdrasil Item usage on WoE/PVP maps Check!
- @storage usage on WoE maps Check!
- Custom items [Within reason, nothing above +10 To All Stats] Check! Only some adorable sprite changes (like drooping headgears) to normal RO items made by myself.
- Working God Items [Sleipnir, Megingjard, etc.] Check!
- WINGS. UGLY ****ERS. DO NOT WANT. Usually imba to boot. NO. NO UGLY WINGS <33
- Convex Mirrors are implemented. Most of the fun of MVPing goes away when they come into play; finding the MVPs. Check!
- Non-English server; no Brazilian/Pinoy servers please [As in UI/NPCs are in non-English, or most of the players cannot comprehend English or choose not to communicate with each other in it; Speaking to the server in English but to friends in a foreign language is okay] Everything on the server is English, of course we have some players who are not native English speakers, but that's the way all RO servers are. <3

Would like to see [will boost chances of joining]:
~ 99/70 max level Check!
~ Extended Classes on-par DD-wise with Transcendent Classes in PVM situations [Padded stat bonuses for killing power without Hatred] We don't have any stat bonuses, as far as I know, but perhaps I misunderstand the question!
~ Star Gladiators getting some love I'm not sure what you mean by this one, either, but again we don't have anything special, and I don't see a ton of them at the moment... but that could change? O:
~ Full Field/Dungeon Warper [All floors of every dungeon, every Field (Except MVPs, perhaps)] Our warper only warps to level 1 of dungeons and some fields. Your basic warper.
~ x1 MVP Card rates Our MVP card rates are .03%
~ Polite community [if not helpful] For the most part, check!
~ Little to no moderation of expression/speech [I hate client censorship and I hate being told to watch my language.] We allow most things, except for some situations. You can read about that here: http://neu-ro.net/board/index.php/topic,5.0.html
~ Lord Kaho's Horns implemented Not at the time being.
~ Community willing to cooperate with each other in many ituations, mostly partying for levelling, but otherwise being courteous with each other Again, for the most part, check!
~ Non-bandwagoning GMs [Sub-GM:"Head Admin says this, so I say it too because they're right/because they're my butt-buddy!111!!1!!!!1 [/fangirl]"] Check!
~ Primarily-, if not entirely-English-speaking Community [Separate forums for languages is alright, but I won't join a German server [i.e.] and be burdened by language barriers rendering me unable to read a guide/updates/etc.] Check!
~ Team coordination required to MVP; soloing MVPs is boring and retarded. Well most people party, but some attempt to solo. You can read our MVP rules on the above link to our server rules.
~ No strange/new ways to level [Old player, cba to learn new methods; I know how to level vanilla, and would like to not be punished for doing so (read as: Levelling slower than everybody else because I stick to old methods versus their confusing new methods)] The only 'newer' way people level seems to be Scaraba leeching, but alas there are other ways as well! <3
~ Organized MVPing/Semi-buffed MVPs; I like seeing MVPing teams and hate seeing solo Godmode 99m-Asura Champions killing anything they see in one hit. I think you already said this... didn't you? xD <3

Anywho... please check us out! I look forward to seeing you in game if you decide to! Thank you! <3

BlazeRO is working on many updates and as long as i play on this Server there where many updates for battleground/improving organizing partys and so on. Another important thing is that there are many Player-made polls and those things are suggested are implemented very fast.

@NeuRO We will see whether I'd like to mess with that or not. The only real thing stopping me [and a few others I know] from joining is that we know people in your server that we would rather stay very, very far away from.

This was aimed specifically at your server; some guides were unreadable due to being in a different language, as well as bits and pieces of patch notes. No. Thank you for trying anyway.

@iFeelRO Too vague, no. Come up with more details if you want a possible new player/s.

I don't want just your rates and max levels/bare minimums for recruitment. If furnished with said information, I will barely consider it; I want to know central changes you've made from Retail and to what extent.

Allow me to add that I have looked around on all three servers that have currently advertised to me at this point. Two of the three were decent enough to directly answer my requirements, but one of the two overlooked an important detail. Moving my language WLTS to a Requirement as a result, I will not participate in any server whose central language of communication is NOT English. [AKA if your server rules/NPCs/Guides/Forums/etc. is not in English, don't bother posting in this thread; having a .de domain doesn't help your case.]

Sorry about that, I was worried that would be the case! At least I think I know a number of people you might be talking about, and they stick to their guild towns most of the time, and provide at least a good amount of competition! xD <3

Server name: Infinity Ragnarok online
Website : www.infinity-ro.net

Requirements:
+ 25x-150x for Base and Job, 5-35x for Items. 50/50/35
+ Extended Classes are not hobby-classes [Actually useful for something, at least in PVM (i.e. I can start one as my first character and reliably hunt with it)]
We do not at the moment, though it might be considered in the future.
+ Dungeon/Field Warper
Got them
+ All Dungeons don't require that you complete Quests to access'em [Somatology Laboratory, Moscovia Dungeon, Amatsu Dungeon, etc.] Done
+ Renewal Client Do request on forum and it will be an option
+ @go, @storage Done
+ Feelings resetter [preferably as @command, grudgingly accepting zeny-sink NPC] Done
+ Lack of aggression on server [I've left too many good servers because of relentlessly-hateful people.] We're goofy if you like that=D
+ Primarily-, if not entirely-English-speaking Community [Separate forums for languages is alright, but I won't join a German server [i.e.] and be burdened by language barriers rendering me unable to read a guide/updates/etc.] Pure English server with a few mods to help foreign players.

Will not accept, don't post if:
Everything is met, surprisingly

Would like to see [will boost chances of joining]:
Everything you wish would exist in our server, though I'm rather interested in balancing out extended classes, do suggest at our forums.

Drawbacks:
Lord of kaho horn might need to be re-invented to reduce the stat bonus then it will be released to the server.
We're new and have probably only 30-50 players depending on server time.
We are still growing though we update and have a new patch released WEEKLY.

Other features:
Crafting System
Custom PVM MVP card system [Not easy to get at all]
Card of the week system
Custom WoE [ Considering our server is based on LOL CASTLE(RO #1 youtube ragnarok series) ], we emphasize alot on making it epic.
Custom quests

After seeing this.. nevermind, absolutely no. New requirement, 'No MVP cards for sale through NPCs, even if just for PVM settings'.

You're against the NPC or against the card settings?
The cards are actually pretty hard to get, considering it's like a god item, you have to work your way through WoE to get it.

@InfinityRO I'm against the fact that you're selling MVP cards through an NPC. If you want MVP cards, you grind MVP cards or grind enough Zeny to buy them from more-fortunate players, not get an easy-way-out by buying it from an NPC.

@EmperiumRO No, on the basis that you only addressed my Requirements and conveniently forgot to address my Do-not-wants and my would-like-to-sees, on top of not supplying enough information.

If these are GMs answering my posts, you're terrible salesmen on the whole, except for the.. one, that managed to get me to think about joining despite having to confront people I don't want to see/deal with to do so?? *nudges Duckie*

Seriously, people, sell your server. You're wasting your time if you can't even convince me to think about it, and wasting my time for denying crappy [I would dearly like to use another word] advertisements.

Also seriously, address the whole list, not just the parts that are beneficial to you.

Also also seriously, shorthanding my list.. *stares at InfinityRO, EmperiumRO* .. tells me that you don't care about my parameters. Why should I care about your server if you don't care about my requirements/optionals/refusals?

Keep going.... [Give me more information]:

Glad I got you thinking! Let's see... Let me try and go back to see if I can address the points that we didn't meet specifically, and perhaps those might allow a little padding to the baddies we have. xD <3

Quote
Extended Classes on-par DD-wise with Transcendent Classes in PVM situations [Padded stat bonuses for killing power without Hatred]
Would you be able to go into more detail with this one? Are you looking to see if we adjusted stat bonuses to these classes? As far as additional things we've implemented for the ECs, we've accepted a suggestion to add an elemental bullet dealer for GSs so you can easily get bullets. It's just pending implementation right now. As far as them standing their own, Colours is one of our best EC's for BG/PvP situation (another possible baddie to you, since I know he's also well known). People actually have a pretty tough time beating his TK. c:

Feel free to suggest some things you think might balance out the classes a bit more. We have a suggestions forum that we check daily, and we allow other players to + or - what they think so that way if the general population seems to like it, we'll implement it! :D

Quote
Star Gladiators getting some love
As far as our characters at the moment, there's 14,046 characters with over 2,000 novices (lol) and an average of about probably 200 of each of the popular classes. There's 161 star gladiators at this time, and do have the Feel Resetter, as well!

As far as the EC breakdown, since it seems that's what you're very interested in, we have 410 SLs, 114 GSs, 132 Ninja's, and 188 TK's.

Quote
Full Field/Dungeon Warper [All floors of every dungeon, every Field (Except MVPs, perhaps)]
For this one we just have the normal warper that warps you to the first floor of dungeons and the like. Just your normal everyday average warper. We just didn't want to make it too easy by adding in the floor warper.

Quote
x1 MVP Card rates
As I already mentioned, our MVP card rates are .03%.

Quote
Lord Kaho's Horns implemented
We don't have these implemented because we're very concerned with balance, and they are pretty powerful little horns! xD
But we -do-, however, have them in our disguiser! So you can still wear them, just without the stats.


So basically what I think it comes down to is that you're just worried you'll meet some of those not-so-friendly-to-some-people players, and that they will ruin your time, correct? At least they hang out in their guild maps, so they are away from general public. They rarely come out unless they are doing WoE or BG. Right now we've got a lot of really good WoE/PvP -centered players, so the competition is fantastic. If you want to see some WoE videos, just search for them on youtube. They get better week to week.

I'd say that it's best not to fret about the actual few baddie players we have, and focus on the server itself and the features we have, and the other 400+ players who are online besides them. xD

Plus you can always just come hang out with me! HAH. I love talking, so I am always up for it if you just feel like killing time. <3

eAmod Custom Battle Ground/Hunting System/Mining System and more!!

Special Commands Added for Normal Players:
@go, @changeleader, @autotrade, @autoloot, @pvpmode, @whopk, @security

There is also absolutely no chance of running into trouble with the server's donation tokens as the server operates entirely on a different funding -- meaning, its a Free2Play Donation-free server.

As to not waste your time, some of the requirements are not completely met and I felt you should be warned of that prior to reading the full topic. Any requirement or suggestion not met are colored in red to make it easier to spot.
Requirements:

+ 25x-150x for Base and Job, 5-35x for Items. 10x/10x/10x - 25x/25x/25x Floating Rates! (Commonly 20x/20x due to community contributions.)

+ Extended Classes are not hobby-classes [Actually useful for something, at least in PVM (i.e. I can start one as my first character and reliably hunt with it)] No nerfs have been brought to Extended classes, and some improvements have been put in! (Taekwon Weapons and all-element types of bullets for example)

+ Dungeon/Field Warper We have a dungeon warper, but.. you are not allowed to warp to specific dungeon levels, any quest dungeon requires you to do the quest prior to warping to it, and we do not have a field warper

+ All Dungeons don't require that you complete Quests to access'em [Somatology Laboratory, Moscovia Dungeon, Amatsu Dungeon, etc.] As previously stated, you have to do the quest to enter these dungeons, but the warper will warp you to them after doing said quests.

+ Renewal Client Of course!

+ @go, @storage We have @go offered to Premium account holders (Fairly easy to get - Donations, Events, and Voting) Though we do not offer @storage

+ Feelings resetter [preferably as @command, grudgingly accepting zeny-sink NPC] @Feelreset is offered through Premium Accounts - (See: Above for details)

+ Lack of aggression on server [I've left too many good servers because of relentlessly-hateful people.] UtopiaRO New World is full of friendly community members!

+ Primarily-, if not entirely-English-speaking Community [Separate forums for languages is alright, but I won't join a German server [i.e.] and be burdened by language barriers rendering me unable to read a guide/updates/etc.] UtopiaRO is an English Speaking server, we have some people that speak other languages but in cases like @main English is required.

+ Absolutely NO MVP Cards for sale through NPCs, even if just for PVM purposes. Not now, not ever.


Would like to see [will boost chances of joining]:

~ 99/70 max level Of course!

~ Extended Classes on-par DD-wise with Transcendent Classes in PVM situations [Padded stat bonuses for killing power without Hatred] Extended Classes are getting improvements as the server matures and suggestions are brought forth, Taekwons just recently got weapons, and Gunslingers access to any elemental bullets they like.

~ Star Gladiators getting some love Star Gladiators always have love my dear, @Feelreset is wonderful!

~ x1 MVP Card rates Not even increased rates events keeps our MvP Card Rates from rising above 1x!

~ Polite community [if not helpful] Just yesterday community members were offering to help players like Priests with a scavenger hunt event! The community is very respecting and helpful to others

~ Little to no moderation of expression/speech [I hate client censorship and I hate being told to watch my language.] It's not allowed to directly curse at someone in open public, but otherwise~!

~ Community willing to cooperate with each other in many situations, mostly partying for levelling, but otherwise being courteous with each other We offer an advanced party system that rewards parties! We also have Monster Hunter which is great leveling and rewards from partying!

~ Non-bandwagoning GMs [Sub-GM:"Head Admin says this, so I say it too because they're right/because they're my butt-buddy!111!!1!!!!1 [/fangirl]"] The times when the staff +1's the admin's suggestion or point of view is when we actually agree with the admin, most of the time we have other opinions and we discuss them with eachother and come to a conclusion. Otherwise there would be no point in having a diverse group of people and ideas for the Admin to converse with about plans. tl;dr - Yes. No bandwagons within the staff.

~ Team coordination required to MVP; soloing MVPs is boring and retarded. At this point since the server is still fairly new you need to party to kill MVPs that are not like Phreeoni or Eddga (Low HP, Low attack, ect) and some custom MvPs may be added that will require parties!

~ Organized MVPing/Semi-buffed MVPs; I like seeing MVPing teams and hate seeing solo Godmode 99m-Asura Champions killing anything they see in one hit. Seeing as how Asura has a 5 second delay on this server (No snapping away or anything to avoid death) and any custom mvps will have anti-soloing mechanics, I find this part to be a slight plus for the server!
I hope you see UtopiaRO New World's qualities and look into our community!

Edit: I felt I should give you a bit more information about the server here..

The Admin: Serenity (jTynne) is a well respected administrator with YEARS of experience in what he does.

The Staff: Adverage roughly 6 Years of Playing/GMing on Ragnarok

The Playerbase: One of the friendliest and helpful I've ever seen, upon the closure of the first version of UtopiaRO, there were multiple people who put up chat boxes in the center town; not angry words, but all appreciative of the hard work put into the server and hopes for a bright future. I have never seen a community that has been so supportive of a server after it's announced closure. There is also a substantial amount of the player-base that helps out any new players that join, in leveling, gear hunting, or just making friends.

Special offers: UtopiaRO New World offers a Mount Rental system which allows players to purchase(Through Event Points or Cash Points) Rental Mount items which set you atop a mount (Llama, Poring, Fox, Boar, hyena, chicken) and increases the speed at which you run at. (You can not cast / attack from atop a mount)

Buffs - Priest buffs have extended, Soul Link buffs have been extended as well! Why you ask? On nearly all other MMOs the main support class typically boasts buffing skills that last for much longer durations than Ragnarok Online's. As such, we've modified just a few of the many available to the main support class here to a much more practical duration.
You are welcome to look at our Server Info page for more details!

Also seriously, address the whole list, not just the parts that are beneficial to you.

UtopiaRO is denied on the basis of failing to format their response correctly, which has not only been dictated to all readers but exemplified once, while the multiple failures were noted with as much biting sarcasm as yours is now. You obviously didn't read the rest of the thread, or you would have learned from said failures. You didn't even read my original post in its entirety, or you would've formatted the post correctly. Oops.

Not only did you fail there, but in three other places in my Requirements alone. Allow me to point them out:
1.) any quest dungeon requires you to do the quest prior to warping to it, and we do not have a field warper; missing field warper for me is a no-go. It's called a Requirement. The first half of that sentence is addressed in #2.
2.) As previously stated, you have to do the quest to enter these dungeons; all dungeons open with no quests is, yet again, a Requirement.
3.) we do not offer @storage [We have @go offered to Premium account holders]; You failed in multiple ways here, showing that you DID NOT READ my Will-Not-Accepts, showing that you did not read my post in its entirety.

Now let's address your performance in the Will-Not-Accep--.. oh, wait, you didn't even post it. OOPS. Now I can't even tell if your server is worth my attention due to not having all my requirements, because you haven't addressed what I will refuse to see; if your server was spotless in that regard, I may have considered joining to see if it was worth my time, despite it not being what I was looking for. OOPS.

After reading yet another lacklustre server advertisement, I have one thing to say.

LEARN TO READ COMPLETELY, NOT SELECTIVELY. The information is RIGHT THERE for you.

Currently-blacklisted servers [Do not post again, 0 desire to join]:
+UtopiaRO, blatantly disregarded my Refusals and posted despite not meeting all Requirements without the safety-blanket that is my Refusals, then editing their post to 'add more information' despite STILL overlooking the Refusals section.
