    2. Community Representative Elections for April 2021

      Hello!   We are nearing the end of the current set of Community Representatives' terms, which means it is time to begin the next election cycle! Since the last cycle was a bit drawn out, we'd like to have voting concluded and the winners promoted by May 8th. As a quick refresher to the unacquainted, a Community Representative is a member of the Council who is not a high-level staff member. Even non-staff members, such as VIPs/Members can be elected. The purpose of the Community Representative role is to guarantee to the community gets a say in GFL Council decisions.Community Representatives are elected for a term of 6 months and may serve up to two consecutive terms. The current community representatives are @Liloz01 and @Salad, they will lose their seat in council shortly after the election has concluded. In order to become one of the two CRs, you must win a spot in the upcoming election. The election is public and members of the community will get to vote. To be considered, you must fulfill a few requirements: You must be a member or above. You must not have any outstanding punishments. Controversial individuals or individuals with an extensive punishment history may also be excluded from running at the option of the current council. You must get at least two current Council members to sponsor your application. Please do not apply if you do not intend to serve the entirety of the 6 month term.   The following are not required, but are strongly recommended: Be well known throughout GFL. Having been present for a long time, having a high amount of Forum / Discord activity, and generally being helpful to new users are generally great ways to accomplish this. Be prepared to deal with drama. There is always plenty! Try to have sufficient free time to attend council meetings.   For purposes of obtaining a sponsorship, the current council consists of the following members: @Nick @FrenZy @Aurora @Ben @Pyros @Liloz01 @Salad If you do not get sponsored, there is always a next time. Please do not beg or bother if the answer is no.   The current community representatives may not sponsor themselves should they wish to run again.   Once you have obtained your sponsor, you can submit an application using this Google Form. You will receive an email from Google containing your responses indicating that we have received your application. Council will then review applications. If Council approves your application, you will be allowed to participate in the election and you will be contacted by a member of the council containing directions for the second stage of the application process. Applications should be submitted by April 14th and the election will begin shortly thereafter.   Thanks

    3. The Death of Teamspeak 3

      Hello!   At today's council meeting (details: https://gflclan.com/forums/topic/64212-council-meeting-summaries/?do=findComment&comment=336322), we decided that it was finally time to retire our Teamspeak 3 server. The server does not see a lot of use, isn't really subject to much moderation or attention, and is more of a maintenance burden than anything else. With our recent efforts to once again move our infrastructure to Kubernetes, we have decided that it is no longer worth maintaining.   Teamspeak 3 will remain up until the 27th of March to give users time to retrieve any files or channel description contents that they may wish to keep.

    4. New Rust Division Leader - Hatehim222

      Hello everyone. I come bearing bittersweet news. @Bue. has chosen to step down from her duties as Division Leader for Rust, a position which she has held since December of last year. You can read more about her stepping down here.   Moving on -- after some consideration on my part as well as discussions between me, Bue and @Hatehim222, I have ultimately decided to promote @Hatehim222 in her stead. I feel good about his mindset, and that's one of the many reasons why I have no doubt he'll do a good job as the new Rust DL.    Please take a moment to join me and congratulate the newcomer, as well as thanking Bue for all of the time she spent for the betterment of the Rust division. Working with her was always a pleasure.

    6. GFL Newsletter - January 2021

      Hello, and welcome to this month's newsletter! A lot has changed since the previous newsletter - the Writing team is now a part of the Public Relations team, led by @Infra and @Salad! We will be aiming to publish newsletters every month, or every two months from this point onward. As an added bonus, from now on, newsletters will include an Easter egg or two - if found, the first to claim it will be rewarded with a prize!   For this month, there is a single Easter egg hidden within the newsletter. Be the first to find it and message @Salad (Salad#6564) or @Infra (Infra#0001) to claim your prize! This section will be updated once there is a winner. Good luck!  UPDATE: @kraken223 has found the Easter egg and has won 1 month of VIP!     - @Dragoon   From the 25th to the 31st of January, we had a week-long celebration for GFL's 10th Anniversary! There were several fun community events hosted by our Events team - click here to view the 10th Anniversary Community Events thread.   We also had events across many of our game servers, with many exciting rewards given out - ranging from gift cards all the way to permanent VIP! Click here to view the 10th Anniversary Server Events thread.   For a limited time during the 10th anniversary, permanent VIP was made available for purchase, at a price of $79.99! Even though the celebrations for our 10th Anniversary have ended, let us keep up the GFL spirit - here's to another successful year in GFL! Keep an eye out for more events hosted by the Events team.     - @flamie Alexis   In celebration of GFL’s 10th anniversary, we have announced the opening of our official GFL RedBubble Merchandise Store! Currently, there are a few designs available, including the GFL logo along with a few Pride themed variants, all designed by our Graphics Team Leader @Salad! For any suggestions or questions about the store, please message Salad on Discord (Salad#6564). Click here for more information and links to the various store pages.       - @AMP   With the monolithic success that Among Us has had over the past several months, we have decided to open up our own GMod-based twist on the game! Starting off, the 24-player server features its own custom version of Skeld alongside a Point-Shop for purchasing custom hats and models.    As with all other newly-added servers and game-modes, there are rules that need to be followed, all of which are courtesy of @Salad.   Game-Play Rules: Cheating or using scripts to gain an advantage over other players is strictly prohibited and will result in a permanent ban. Abusing the report system to report players who have not broken the rules will result in a warning. Repeated violations will lead to a temporary ban. Using 3rd-party services like Skype, Discord or TeamSpeak to share information about the game in a way that unfairly advantages any player is considered cheating and will result in a temporary ban. Repeated violations can lead to a permanent ban. Do not intentionally delay rounds. Delaying includes purposefully not voting, purposefully not finishing tasks, purposefully not pressing the emergency button, and not killing within a reasonable amount of time (for Impostors only). Staff has final say. If you have any issues, please contact the Server Manager (@Salad).   Chat/Misc Rules Advertising non-GFL servers is prohibited. Harassment and usage of slurs is prohibited. Sending spam messages/being overly-annoying over text or voice chat is prohibited. Pretending to be an admin or any other user is prohibited. NSFW/Gore sprays and profile pictures are prohibited. Please only speak in English, to the best of your ability. Abuse of the admin call feature is prohibited.   Feel free to connect to the server using this link: steam://connect/92.119.148.204:27015 Have fun! Don’t go into Electrical alone, though...
