    OTRealm, besides other things, also hosts it's own serverlist, where you can advertise your servers for free.

    It's located at serverlist.otrealm.com, or list.otrealm.com.
    You can also find the server list site in the navigation bar.

    Feel free to post feedback or suggestions in this thread.

    I'd love to see the following features:

    1) Graphs of the server statistics with at least these 2 stats:
    a. Server rank
    b. Player count

    2) Option for server owners to set last wipe
    Similar to the "Added: January 1, 2000 - 00:00:00" row, allows us players to quickly judge whether or not we want to start there. This is pretty vital information for some players, especially depending on the type of server.​

    3) Ability to sort servers by when they last wiped

    4) Allow Markdown when writing a server description
    A lot of places online are using Markdown these days, it would be nice to follow suit, its easy and helps add some flair to the information provided. Checked a handful of listed servers here and all the descriptions appear to be plain text (I don't have time to test it myself in case its already a feature).​

    5) Option to set PvP type (similar to setting server type.. e.g. evolution, etc)
    There's a lot of players that are looking for a specific type of PvP. Similar to Rust, we don't want to play non-pvp servers, nor do we want to play battlefield servers (similar to Tibia's war servers.. login with 1/1 and have unlimited everything). I would propose a handful of "pvp types" such as.. open-pvp, retro pvp, pvp-enforced, opt-pvp & arena (arena being your battlefield/unlimited servers).​

    6) Ability to sort servers by PvP type

    7) Ability to upload an overall server minimap image
    This might just be a pet-peeve of my own, but I would like to know what content a server is really offering before I waste my time going to their site, making an account, downloading their client, leveling up to that content then checking myself. Some servers are "10.99" and they're lacking entire continents.
    8) Add useful signatures
    The signatures are currently broken so I don't know what information they actually provide. However, I would like to see players online count, server rank, the server IP, the client version, the type of server, and the type of PvP. You can fetch all this information from the server list.
    9) Migrate existing accounts to the forum
    Migrate the existing accounts on the serverlist over to the forum and stop having separate accounts for the forum and for the serverlist. I'd like the ability to click on a server owner's name and be directed to his forum profile. Also makes it easier for people to list their server, or use the forum if they already have an account registered on one or the other since they won't have to make a 2nd account.
    Thank you,
    Joshwa534

    Serverlist updated to v2.0!

    This update finally contains same login as the forum, you simply Authorize access to the forum within a few clicks!

    Added
    • Markdown: You can now use an markdown editor to write server description, for example you can use bold / italic text aswell as color.
    • Signatures: All servers got two diffrent signatures you can use, they provide information about your server such as: online players, player record, servername and server status.'
    • Minimap Image: You can now upload your own minimap image for your server.
    • Option to set PvP type: Possible to set what kind of PvP type your server is, ex: Optional-PvP, PvP, Hardcore-PvP.
    • Sort by PvP type: This is exactly what it sounds, you can now sort server for a certain kind of PvP type aswell, just like when you sort for client or map.
    • OTRealm Auth: You can now login using your OTRealm account instead of having seperate accounts.
    • Serverlist Profile: Your former profile on the serverlist now redirects you to your forum profile so you can easily find the owners forum profile.
    • Ability to set 'Last Wipe': You can now set a date when your server was last wiped/reseted to show the players that the server is fresh.
    Removed
    • Removed login, register, lost account and reset password functions, this is all handled by the forum now.

    Changed
    • Add Server: Should now be much easier to add your server to the list.
    • FAQ: Changed the information in FAQ to be more accurate.
    • Server Checker: The server checker should now gather the information from the server better.

    Coming in the next few updates:
    • Graphs: For each server to view both server rank and players.


    Any more suggestions of features you would like to see on the serverlist?
