Providing the community with servers to test their creations and relax with friends.
We at GameBanana decided that to help our users develop their skills we should have a dedicated server that can be "rented" to GameBanana map and skin submitters. Submitters can reserve a time slot and during that time they will be given the keys to the server, where they can play, test, tweak, etc on their own or with others.
These time slots would be linked to a calendar on the site, letting all members know of when, where and what is happening on the dev server.
By far one of the most popular requests from users is that they would like to see community servers return, where fellow bananites can meet up with each other to play casual games with unique custom mods. As such, as part of the servers project we aim to provide a series of unique gameservers run by the community for the community, where custom content and modding is embraced.
To help foster growth and development of key submitters via access to a test server and to improving community spirit by providing a series of unique gameservers run by the community for the community, where custom content and modding is embraced.
