Much interest in First Strike only rotation server?

So after the failure that was Homefront and then Brink not quite living upto expectations, I was left in a bit of a void. I first loaded up COd4 again and then Black Ops as I had another mate playing that.

Anyway long story short despite being quite against the idea of the DLC milking from Activision I decided to get the First Strike dlc to tide me over.
Well I soon found out that I should have just stuck to my guns and not got it because most servers are running both map packs and so you still get kicked.

I thought there would be some option to filter out the content you do not have however you can only filter out DLC all together and not the individual packs.
I should have know, my bad.

Anyway it occurred to me after a bit of searching that there may be others in the same predicament who may have bought the first DLC but don't want to get any more map packs and want to play on servers where they aren't going to get booted for not having ALL the dlc.

I thought I may start a server just for this purpose, but I wanted to see if there was any interest on here?
I don't really have a clan so I know just getting a server going may be a bummer but I was htinking if theres people getting map pack 1 only and then getting booted, chances are they are going to want a server that is Map pack 1 only (and some stock maps maybe) to play on.

I know there are plenty of stock servers and servers that run everything already so I'm basically thinking of catering to those who want to try the new maps but not get ALL the dlc.

Thoughts?

Our clan has bought in to the first two DLC packs but have decided not to bother supporting the next one. Gota draw the line somewhere...

All you can do is give it a go but like any server you are going to need some people to kick the game off playing regular. That or it's billy no mates just like the rest of us trying to get a server full, it tough on your own...

Today was a bit of a revelation.
I got my server up and running and installed sCon on it too which is a very nice admin tool actually.

Server was full most of the day and when I switched some First Strike maps into the rotation mostly everyone left.

So I think there are more players without the DLC than there are with.
I think I shall be running stock maps rotation from now on but I'm going to enable voting for those that want to play on DLC maps.
