I've played this game since 2016 mainly on Amazon Underground, but all of the time I've been playing this game I noticed something. Creative Mode on this game is practically forgotten. I know a lot of people won't care because most people play survival anyways but I feel like this game is mainly based around survival. Even on the forum if you look at the survival forum vs the creative one, creative is practically dead lol. The stuff on the creative part of the forum is all the way back in like 2015 before this game had survival. Anyways, I'm not mad or anything, or trying to suggest anything, I'm just stating something I noticed.

For example what I meant about the forum thing is, the Creative Mode Discussion has about 88 topics while the survival one has 1122 i think. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Indeed, there was never really any community or even many actual conversations in the PoC Forums back when PoC was a Creative mode only game. If you look back at the Wayback Machine Archive website, you can see that from the start of this forum's creation up until around June 7th 2016 (the time that Survival Multiplayer was announced on the WoC Forums, and the Survival Multiplayer Server was released to the public), the forums had very few activity and the majority of posts were made by the admin of the forums at the time (update announcements, possibly checking on bug reports, and making conversations to the few people who joined the forums back then). You can see that days after PoC's Survival Multiplayer Server was released the whole forums started exploding with posts, and within a couple months after the forums had many times more posts, threads, and active members then it ever had before. It's believed that a majority of PoC's Forum/Survival Multiplayer community actually originated from WoC's Forum and game community first; back at the time PoC Forums was a untouched site in its early days, the WoC Forums had an full-on active community, and for years players wanted a Survival Multiplayer mode as they already had Creative Multiplayer and Survival Singleplayer and Solverlabs promised them that they would get to adding a Survival Multiplayer mode to WoC (to this day they never did), but Solverlabs realized that they never had to, and so once a Survival Multiplayer Server was coming soon and was announced on the WoC Forums, everyone switched forums and games and so that's why many OG Survival Multiplayer players and PoC Forum community members were WoC players first, and why few forum members exclusively came from PoC before Survival Multiplayer existed.

 

Another thing to consider is that especially in the past, Solverlabs did quite a bad job promoting their forums to their player bases, so few people playing before Survival Multiplayer even knew a forum existed, and once the forums had it's population boom, it was mainly word-of-mouth from forum members talking to other players that caused promotion for this forums.

Geez, my spacing messed up and it looks like a jumbled mess. I can fix it up if you'd like.

Yea, and also the fact that Creative doesn't really have any events like Survival does, and most creative players don't know about the forum to begin with, let alone even bother making forum accounts.
