I have to disagree on this, If they did turn on Prime again, it would kill the server as Damon already stated, but to the point to where I am at on TTT, I can vouch and say we have met 10-20 new comers and seen them come back to the server enjoying there selves. Most of the players do start out by breaking the rules but when they start talking to the players and learn they're doing something wrong, they usually take the time to read through our rules or there is an admin or Regular player there to walk them through how to play. I can agree there are some people who are making throw away accounts to do ill content on the servers but at the end of the day some of the admins are active enough to see it and are on to stop it, if they're not then regulars or the forums to make a report on that player pops up into chat every 10-20 minutes. I just don't see the big deal about having prime on for any Community Server as you shut your doors to more people.
At the end of the day, Yes numbers means future endeavors with sponsors or anything that the Marketing Team may be looking at it, but at the end of the day the community is your building block. That Block shouldn't be touch unless needed to because if you push the community in the wrong direction that can be the end of a community very quickly to people that don't realize it.
