i was thinking about a really good idea which is directed towards CANON and Mathieu.
a really good way to get more demopenguins to convert to users is to make more maps and more gamemodes available only in a dedicated server that allows only users. i know this would be difficult, but the demopenguins dont really feel a need to convert because they just wanna play, and if they dont get the weapon they want, they just quit and reload it.
for instance, if you made two more maps and KING of the HILL, and only made them available in a dedicated server titled "USERS ARENA" i know that i would want to convert from being a demopenguin, because there is more of a sense of exclusiveness to the game.
again, this was only just an idea. no pressure! lol
