I made a server as well, but I forgot to tell you guys about it :P I need to set it up again as I accidentally deleted the server while installing win7 on my computer :(

Offline servers are a security issue. I could sign on as whoever I wanted on one.

Also, as far as servers go, I started working on an RPG mod for a server (something customized to a specific server) back on 1.2, anyone interested in mayhaps helping me continue it?

My server used to have a /login command so if you set a password you get freezed until you give the right password, therefore solving this security issue.

Why so many minecraft severs? Holy wow there are alot. I say we just pick 1 or 2 for community wise. I have one as well, but its whitelisted and pretty much pure vanilla right now.

I think there was another issue where someone could steal minecraft passwords with the non-authenticating servers.

Well, I kind of prefer Single player, since servers tend to lag so much. However, a private server just for this site, providing it's capable enough to handle 20+ people lag-free, would be pretty nice.

Perhaps there would be a whitelist that includes all members?

How much does it take to run a server with that many? I have a P3 with almost a half gig of ram, but I don't think it can handle it, even with the minimal Debian install it's running. It only runs MC server and FTP.

For 20 people, you need a lot better computer, around a 2ghz dual core, and at least 2gb of memory, but the biggie is internet connection. It needs to be at least 5mbps both ways, download and upload, which will be an issue for people with asymmetric internet connections, the most common type.

My computer eats minecraft server + minecraft client + folding@home + other game for breakfast, but the upload speed on my connection (3mbps) is only good for 10 people which is still quite a lot. Unfortunately, since my family will be moving from an apartment to a house once we buy one, we may ISPs, and/or my parents will only pay for a slower connection speed, so if I make my server available now, I can't guarantee that it will function at the same level a few months from now.

Yeah, for home Internet connections, ISPs expect people to do a lot more downloading, not run servers, so it is cheaper for them to provide asymmetric connections and not have users complain. For many ISPs, running a server is against their TOS, but they usually don't care if you have a video game server.

I can host it, got a quad core + 4go ram+ 100mb/s, but it would be better to buy a dedicated server :P

I highly doubt thats what he has in the way you are thinking. 

I am pretty sure he is talking about link speed, not what his ISP gives him.
