    • Hello everyone,
       
      Yesterday afternoon, it came to our attention that a private string of messages was leaked from GFL’s Council chat to an outside party. These messages were sent by me mentioning that I would be creating a thread to outline and document all of Roy and related parties’ actions towards GFL, that being this thread. Benroy, former Director of Teams and Moderation Team Leader, came forward and admitted that it was him, taking full responsibility for his actions and has apologised. With that, Council has collectively decided to remove him from all of his positions in GFL, as well as blacklist him from regaining staff positions in the future due to his breach of the GFL Staff Code of Conduct.

      During each map, we'll be playing with only one specific primary weapon: Mixture will be played with Galil only, Standart Map with Famas only, Gargantua with Mac10 only, Barrage with AUG only, RE4 Castle with XM1014s only and Percocet with G3SG1s only. Gargantua will be played with classic GFL settings (with a limited time 1,000 ammo limit) and Percocet will be played with pF settings (900 ammo). Pistols and other secondaries will be left to use as are, but the ammo restrictions will apply on the maps that have restrictions. For each map, the first whole round will be WARM-UP for late joiners (regardless if the round is won or lost) since all these maps have only 1 stage.

    • Feel free to post all map suggestions for the event. During the event we will run through every map, or at least attempt to.
       
      Event will be held this upcoming Sunday.
       
      Please respect the following rules:
       
      1.No Sexual or Offensive content within the map.
      2. Maps over 400mb will most likely not be accepted(but feel free to post them regardless its a case by case basis).
      3. Please do not repeatedly update the same post over and over, as it makes it harder to tell when new submissions have been entered.
      4. Maps that were already used on the server in a previous event, or maps on normal rotation that were removed, do not count and will be skipped.
      5. Please only Suggest maps with a TTT prefix.

    • As some of you may have seen, earlier today xQc hopped on our Novice Surf server! @Dini compiled a video of some of the best moments, including my favorite moment at the very end where I make a quick cameo. Pretty huge to have a streamer as big as him play on our servers, dude was on for almost an hour. Big thanks to xQc and to Dizzy for getting him on the server! Watch the highlights below:

    • Liloz had the fun idea that we revisit this topic since it's been a couple of years.  It's a lot of questions but just multiple choice... agree... disagree...  on things like political/social topics, and religion.  Kind of fun because I'll be clicking on things going "Oh yeah I definitely agree to that", and then I'm like... "Hrmm... well... if... this... if... okay... maybe not strongly agree, but agree... nah, I disagree now that I think about it lolz."

      Hmmm.  Fun idea, but looks like I haven't changed too much lol 😛   Maybe you have or haven't?  Maybe the people who are currently in the community see things a different way this year too.  Who knows?  Help me find out.

    • Hello,
       
      I am Floopyhiggle, owner and operator of the Yarrternative playlist.  My work was recently featured in the NYtimes article Yarrternative: The Musical Phenomena Storming the Seven Seas.  "What would a 21st century pirate listen to?" is the question at the core of this journey.  Today I invite all of you to sail the seas of music with me, unless your taste sucks of course.  Please submit music you believe fits the following criteria, and as one with superior musical taste, I will grade your choices as well as your lifestyle.  If you are lucky, your song may even make it onto the playlist.  Good Luck.
       
      Songs must be booty shakable in at least the following situations:
      scrubbing the poop deck hauling booty (on the dancefloor) yachting the seven seas scrubbing my poop deck drinking, serving, or spilling grog

    • Hello everybody.
       
      We’ve recently become aware of a violation of our privacy/security protocols on the part of former members of the Prop Hunt staff team. The loading screen for the Prop Hunt server was moved to an external web server outside of GFL infrastructure without authorization. The web server was controlled by a former member of staff who was demoted for violations of the Code of Conduct prior to the incident. This is problematic because web servers are typically configured to log basic information about the requests they receive, which would include the IP address of a connecting player and their Steam ID in this case. As such, anybody who joined the Prop Hunt server during the time that this loading screen was active may have had their IP address and Steam ID logged by a third party.
       
      We cannot determine exactly how long this loading screen was in place, however, I suspect that this was put in place shortly after we upgraded our web machine in February of this year as the reason cited for making this change was that the old site stopped working at this time (though the proper course of action would’ve been to report the issue to myself instead of moving the site off GFL infrastructure, which was not done). We also cannot determine whether or not these requests were actually logged as we do not have the ability to audit web servers that are not controlled by us, however, we feel that it is necessary to post this in the interest of transparency.
       
      Both of the individuals responsible left staff a little while ago, however, this was recently discovered by @Salad while inspecting the server in light of a recent action taken to disrupt the operation of the Prop Hunt server. The loading screen was removed as soon as it was discovered. We also decided that it was appropriate that both of the individuals involved be banned due to this and other, unrelated considerations. We are currently evaluating further actions that we can take to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

    • Pretty simple premise, I'll start:
      "Liloz01" is short form for "Little Oscar 2001". My sister made it up when she signed me up to a game called Bin Weevils when I was like... 6-7 years old or something. So; I was quite little ("Lil"), my name is Oscar (my sister called me "Oz") and my birth year is 2001 ("01"). Liloz01!
       
      I've never had another online name, this is it! I would explain my prior names if I had any. I like this name a lot and I don't think I will ever change it, I'm sentimental!
       
      What about you?

    • This is a simple thread where I will be posting notable change logs for my fork of the SurfTimer plugin, which is currently being run on all of the GFL CS:GO Surf servers. Until now, we've primarily been sharing update notes in our Discord server, with major updates being an exception (often getting their own thread as they are much more detailed than the regular updates we push). The only other place that has received a steady stream of update notes is my private development Discord, and so I figured this thread would be a good way to consolidate any future update releases!
       
      This is just for update notes relevant to my fork of SurfTimer, and nothing else. If you would like to stay tuned to the latest updates for everything Surf, such as map releases and miscellaneous fixes, please join our Discord: https://discord.gg/gfl
       
      If you would like to check out my other plugins and info about them, check out my GitHub: https://github.com/1zc. Additionally, here are some quick links to some past milestones with the project:
      The v1.1 Milestone (The SaveLoc Update): https://gflclan.com/topic/74918-server-update-the-saveloc-update/ The v2.0 Update: https://gflclan.com/topic/78258-surf-the-v20-update/ The 1-Year Anniversary Update: https://gflclan.com/topic/80136-surf-the-1-year-anniversary-update-v22/  
      Frequently Asked Questions
      Is this plugin public? Can I use it for my own server? This specific fork of SurfTimer is a personal project of mine and is not currently public.

    • Greetings,
      To future web developers or anyone interested in UI designing, I would highly recommend going through to visit fireship.io on Youtube. You can visit his youtube channel HERE. Tons of free information and videos on everything from Programming languages, down to understanding the client to server process with TCP exchange of information through SSL. You can also visit his website HERE , which can take you through free courses and learning all sorts of development tools available at your disposal. 
       
      My recommendation:
       
      Familiarize yourself with how a client to server connection works, regardless if you are thinking about Front-end of Back-end  development. By far has the best explanation about this process I have seen on any Youtube channel hands down.  A lot of his material is JavaScript related, go through it extensively and coerce yourself in the material. Obviously don't just rely on the videos to teach you the languages and frameworks, download the material for yourself and practice. If you're also curious on learning CI/CD, Docker & DevOps related material, he has videos and material related to that as well. Highly recommend going through for those if you're interested in IT infrastructure support or DevOps related work in the future.   
      My overall rating: 9/10
       
      Pros: 
      Tons of great JS frameworks, tools & libraries to work with. Plenty of full-stack development resources available to you for free.  Dart, Go & other uncommon languages available to learn through his website. Worth the journey to pick up, if those languages tailor to what you'll need or want.  Cons:
      Fast-paced and often hard to keep up. Could be doing a lot of pausing or back-tracking.   
      As a current developer myself, I would've wished to run across his Youtube before journeying onto websites such as Codecademy, Coursera and other websites that require a lot of reading rather than auditory lessons. Again, the links can be found with the capitalized "HERE" in the top paragraph. 
       
      Thank you.

    • {Change 1 Letter}
      I know that almost all of you, or maybe all of you, rather already knows the mechanics or how to play this game, right ? You just have to change 1 letter from the previous word that is posted to create a new word; make sure that the word you're going to post is a REAL WORD, not a made-up one. 
      So here's an EXAMPLE:
      Player #1: Bull
      Player #2: Ball
      Player #3: Tall
      You'll just choose 1 letter that you're going to change to make a new word. Simple yet fun Hope you guys have fun playing ヾ(^∇^).
      Also, words must only contain 4 LETTERS !
      New Rule and Only Rule: No slangs or made-up words. You can use any languages.
      ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿
      Please don't post OTHER THINGS in this thread, since this thread is solely for a game only. It would be disturbing and irritating. So I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

      During each map, we'll be playing with only one specific primary weapon: Mixture will be played with Galil only, Standart Map with Famas only, Gargantua with Mac10 only, Barrage with AUG only, RE4 Castle with XM1014s only and Percocet with G3SG1s only. Gargantua will be played with classic GFL settings (with a limited time 1,000 ammo limit) and Percocet will be played with pF settings (900 ammo). Pistols and other secondaries will be left to use as are, but the ammo restrictions will apply on the maps that have restrictions. For each map, the first whole round will be WARM-UP for late joiners (regardless if the round is won or lost) since all these maps have only 1 stage.

    • Round 3 baby! We're spicing things up with this map poll, so make sure to get your votes in within a week! You can also thank iLoveNapalm for the time, as he requested it to end at 2:30 AM Saudi Arabia Time (courteous to our Saudi Arabians).

    • Feel free to post all map suggestions for the event. During the event we will run through every map, or at least attempt to.
       
      Event will be held this upcoming Sunday.
       
      Please respect the following rules:
       
      1.No Sexual or Offensive content within the map.
      2. Maps over 400mb will most likely not be accepted(but feel free to post them regardless its a case by case basis).
      3. Please do not repeatedly update the same post over and over, as it makes it harder to tell when new submissions have been entered.
      4. Maps that were already used on the server in a previous event, or maps on normal rotation that were removed, do not count and will be skipped.
      5. Please only Suggest maps with a TTT prefix.

    • As some of you may have seen, earlier today xQc hopped on our Novice Surf server! @Dini compiled a video of some of the best moments, including my favorite moment at the very end where I make a quick cameo. Pretty huge to have a streamer as big as him play on our servers, dude was on for almost an hour. Big thanks to xQc and to Dizzy for getting him on the server! Watch the highlights below:

    • Liloz had the fun idea that we revisit this topic since it's been a couple of years.  It's a lot of questions but just multiple choice... agree... disagree...  on things like political/social topics, and religion.  Kind of fun because I'll be clicking on things going "Oh yeah I definitely agree to that", and then I'm like... "Hrmm... well... if... this... if... okay... maybe not strongly agree, but agree... nah, I disagree now that I think about it lolz."

      Hmmm.  Fun idea, but looks like I haven't changed too much lol 😛   Maybe you have or haven't?  Maybe the people who are currently in the community see things a different way this year too.  Who knows?  Help me find out.

    • Hello,
       
      I am Floopyhiggle, owner and operator of the Yarrternative playlist.  My work was recently featured in the NYtimes article Yarrternative: The Musical Phenomena Storming the Seven Seas.  "What would a 21st century pirate listen to?" is the question at the core of this journey.  Today I invite all of you to sail the seas of music with me, unless your taste sucks of course.  Please submit music you believe fits the following criteria, and as one with superior musical taste, I will grade your choices as well as your lifestyle.  If you are lucky, your song may even make it onto the playlist.  Good Luck.
       
      Songs must be booty shakable in at least the following situations:
      scrubbing the poop deck hauling booty (on the dancefloor) yachting the seven seas scrubbing my poop deck drinking, serving, or spilling grog

    • Hello everybody.
       
      We’ve recently become aware of a violation of our privacy/security protocols on the part of former members of the Prop Hunt staff team. The loading screen for the Prop Hunt server was moved to an external web server outside of GFL infrastructure without authorization. The web server was controlled by a former member of staff who was demoted for violations of the Code of Conduct prior to the incident. This is problematic because web servers are typically configured to log basic information about the requests they receive, which would include the IP address of a connecting player and their Steam ID in this case. As such, anybody who joined the Prop Hunt server during the time that this loading screen was active may have had their IP address and Steam ID logged by a third party.
       
      We cannot determine exactly how long this loading screen was in place, however, I suspect that this was put in place shortly after we upgraded our web machine in February of this year as the reason cited for making this change was that the old site stopped working at this time (though the proper course of action would’ve been to report the issue to myself instead of moving the site off GFL infrastructure, which was not done). We also cannot determine whether or not these requests were actually logged as we do not have the ability to audit web servers that are not controlled by us, however, we feel that it is necessary to post this in the interest of transparency.
       
      Both of the individuals responsible left staff a little while ago, however, this was recently discovered by @Salad while inspecting the server in light of a recent action taken to disrupt the operation of the Prop Hunt server. The loading screen was removed as soon as it was discovered. We also decided that it was appropriate that both of the individuals involved be banned due to this and other, unrelated considerations. We are currently evaluating further actions that we can take to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

    • Pretty simple premise, I'll start:
      "Liloz01" is short form for "Little Oscar 2001". My sister made it up when she signed me up to a game called Bin Weevils when I was like... 6-7 years old or something. So; I was quite little ("Lil"), my name is Oscar (my sister called me "Oz") and my birth year is 2001 ("01"). Liloz01!
       
      I've never had another online name, this is it! I would explain my prior names if I had any. I like this name a lot and I don't think I will ever change it, I'm sentimental!
       
      What about you?

    • This is a simple thread where I will be posting notable change logs for my fork of the SurfTimer plugin, which is currently being run on all of the GFL CS:GO Surf servers. Until now, we've primarily been sharing update notes in our Discord server, with major updates being an exception (often getting their own thread as they are much more detailed than the regular updates we push). The only other place that has received a steady stream of update notes is my private development Discord, and so I figured this thread would be a good way to consolidate any future update releases!
       
      This is just for update notes relevant to my fork of SurfTimer, and nothing else. If you would like to stay tuned to the latest updates for everything Surf, such as map releases and miscellaneous fixes, please join our Discord: https://discord.gg/gfl
       
      If you would like to check out my other plugins and info about them, check out my GitHub: https://github.com/1zc. Additionally, here are some quick links to some past milestones with the project:
      The v1.1 Milestone (The SaveLoc Update): https://gflclan.com/topic/74918-server-update-the-saveloc-update/ The v2.0 Update: https://gflclan.com/topic/78258-surf-the-v20-update/ The 1-Year Anniversary Update: https://gflclan.com/topic/80136-surf-the-1-year-anniversary-update-v22/  
      Frequently Asked Questions
      Is this plugin public? Can I use it for my own server? This specific fork of SurfTimer is a personal project of mine and is not currently public.

    • Greetings,
      To future web developers or anyone interested in UI designing, I would highly recommend going through to visit fireship.io on Youtube. You can visit his youtube channel HERE. Tons of free information and videos on everything from Programming languages, down to understanding the client to server process with TCP exchange of information through SSL. You can also visit his website HERE , which can take you through free courses and learning all sorts of development tools available at your disposal. 
       
      My recommendation:
       
      Familiarize yourself with how a client to server connection works, regardless if you are thinking about Front-end of Back-end  development. By far has the best explanation about this process I have seen on any Youtube channel hands down.  A lot of his material is JavaScript related, go through it extensively and coerce yourself in the material. Obviously don't just rely on the videos to teach you the languages and frameworks, download the material for yourself and practice. If you're also curious on learning CI/CD, Docker & DevOps related material, he has videos and material related to that as well. Highly recommend going through for those if you're interested in IT infrastructure support or DevOps related work in the future.   
      My overall rating: 9/10
       
      Pros: 
      Tons of great JS frameworks, tools & libraries to work with. Plenty of full-stack development resources available to you for free.  Dart, Go & other uncommon languages available to learn through his website. Worth the journey to pick up, if those languages tailor to what you'll need or want.  Cons:
      Fast-paced and often hard to keep up. Could be doing a lot of pausing or back-tracking.   
      As a current developer myself, I would've wished to run across his Youtube before journeying onto websites such as Codecademy, Coursera and other websites that require a lot of reading rather than auditory lessons. Again, the links can be found with the capitalized "HERE" in the top paragraph. 
       
      Thank you.

    • {Change 1 Letter}
      I know that almost all of you, or maybe all of you, rather already knows the mechanics or how to play this game, right ? You just have to change 1 letter from the previous word that is posted to create a new word; make sure that the word you're going to post is a REAL WORD, not a made-up one. 
      So here's an EXAMPLE:
      Player #1: Bull
      Player #2: Ball
      Player #3: Tall
      You'll just choose 1 letter that you're going to change to make a new word. Simple yet fun Hope you guys have fun playing ヾ(^∇^).
      Also, words must only contain 4 LETTERS !
      New Rule and Only Rule: No slangs or made-up words. You can use any languages.
      ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿
      Please don't post OTHER THINGS in this thread, since this thread is solely for a game only. It would be disturbing and irritating. So I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. 
      ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿
