Hello everyone, your friendly neighbourhood Skeeto here.
Torien and I are very close to finishing the preparation for the server, with an anticipated startup of around the end of May/start of June. (For those not aware, this will be a survival server with a whitelist, open primarily to CTM mapmakers and players, with a special spawn area and free rein of all vanilla land outside it.) All we have left to do really is set up of the nether and the plugins we're planning on using (very few admin things) so we thought it was about time we started signup for it!
I repeat: this will be a whitelisted server. It also won't be a very big server. Although we'd happily accept any offered donations to help run it, unfortunately we are both students and won't be able to afford an 100-person-whatever-gig-of-ram server. We are currently on the smallest hosting plan available from our current host, but will be able to extend this to a higher package if needs be. However, our limit (unless we were to get another full-time payer) would be a 768MB package, which will cost us £4.50 each per month. This will, allegedly, hold an ideal of 15 players. There isn't, however, a limit, they just advise that if we go over that 15 person limit then the server will experience lag. It has not yet been tested how big the map size could be, however.
Basically, when we sign people up, we want to know that there aren't inactive people going to be taking up the spaces that could be filled by much more active people. We want our money to stretch as far as possible, and for the server to be used as much as it could. Therefore, we don't want people who are going to come on once in a blue moon, or know that they're going to have a busy summer. Although we'd love to be able to have everyone on, active or not, there just isn't enough space unfortunately! (Torien and I already take up two slots!)
We're not going to state a limit on the number of people we can have on there yet, but if we get enough, then I'll upgrade the server to accommodate. Anyway, anyone who's interested in becoming a member, please read below.
If you wish to sign up for our as-of-yet-unnamed server, please fill in the form below and send it in a PM to Torien.
(Do NOT clog up this thread with talk about it; message one of us or catch us on Skype if you have any questions, and I'll relay any other information to anyone else interested as and when.)

Previous Server Experience:
How many hours a week you anticipate to be able to dedicate to the server when it opens:
Whether or not you'd be able to donate towards keeping the server running:
Whether or not you'd be interested in helping to moderate the server:
Would you like to record any LPs or stream your server activity? Yes/No
* Optional, not needed but preferred.
We will contact everyone once the server opens; don't expect a reply unless you specifically ask a question, because right now we're just collecting numbers and crunching them to help make this server the best it can be.
Also, this isn't necessarily an application; the only way you'd get "rejected" from the server is if you explicitly state you won't be able to spend enough time on the server to warrant a place. If we have lots of signups, then we may have to sacrifice those with less time. But otherwise, nothing personal matters in whether or not you'll get a place.
The thing about playing regular minecraft is that it's so time consuming, which for me is kinda counter-productive
