    2. A new server in Garry's Mod.

      Good morning, afternoon or evening.   Recently the Division Leaders, Directors and myself have talked about the lack of population surrounding Purge. Purge came back near the end of January and beginning of February. The server had a decent population for about two to three months before it started to die. I won't go into why it died because this isn't the post for it. But even with attention and effort put into Purge the population never really started to take off again. With this we have decided to close down Purge.   But a new server will be taking it's place, PrisonRP. It has the same base or system as both Purge and DarkRP except there is an actual end goal or purpose. Currently there are only two US servers both in development, then the other servers are located in Europe. With this I believe it has a lot of potential compared to some other game modes such as DarkRP. Right now @Nick is helping out with the map, thank you by the way. At this moment not a lot of things have been developed for PrisonRP but there will be an update somewhere stating when the release date will be. My main goal is to have a well founded economy along with trying to build onto the community.   Thank you for taking the time to read this and I would love to hear your feedback! -Dalaw

    3. Passing the torch - New Garry's Mod Division Leader

      Hello, I would like to announce the new GMod Division Leader, @Zero! @Zebra has decided to pass the torch to Zero essentially because he will be too busy with his life and hasn't been able to actively help the community as he usually does. Zebra will be sticking around for the next few weeks to help Zero get settled in with his new role in the community, and then he will be set down to Community Advisor after that time has passed.    Zero is noted for his technical knowledge, development, and server management.    Please join me to welcome and congratulate Zero, and to give thanks to Zebra for the work he did with Garry's Mod Divison.

    5. GFL Newsletter - March 2019

      TA Introduced:      Let's start this off with a bang; the new position of GFL. You might have seen this role being introduced by Benroy, but to clear up any questions you might have and to thoroughly understand what the Technical Administrator does, we will be discussing what exactly the Technical Administrator does. However, let’s first congratulate our new TAs: Roy, Nick, and Dreae.     In a nutshell, the Technical Administrator directly works on the majority of GFL’s servers to edit, fix, or install certain aspects of the server in order to benefit the server. They must come up with solutions that can handle future implementations and maintain current implementations and/or solutions. If there is an issue, the Technical Administrator will step in and find a solution to fix that problem. The Technical Administrator leads the Development team and is an advisor to each other in order to help fix or edit a server if necessary. They are tasked with this objective, and because of this, they are trusted with a lot of power and responsibility. Since they have access to almost all of GFL’s servers, they have the ability to either literally make or break GFL and its servers. The TAs have been hand-selected because they are usually trusted members of the community that already have important roles within GFL (e.g. director) or were in such roles in the past.     The role of Technical Administrator is certainly a bit confusing. They work on several things behind the scenes without everyone knowing (mainly because it’s too complex for them to understand it). They detect errors within the servers and work hard to fix it. Anything they do is done with haste and efficiency in order to benefit the community. Again, welcome our new TAs to GFL. Remember - they might be working on your favorite server right now!   Trusted Reworked - Community Advisors:        The people with the Trusted role are there to advise the higher-ups with their own perspective and knowledge to better the community. However, due to inactivity and a lack of proper opinions, it was reformed and renamed "Community Advisors” with a more serious and effective outlook on the role itself.         Traditionally, the Trusted role was given to the people who were a long-term members. Said people were all most likely ex-team members/leaders (Though you can still be a Trusted while active, it was just highly unpopular). These members/leaders would professionally renounce their current position within GFL and be given the Trusted role by a Director who has seen this person's potential for the position.The role was removed from the community due to the fact that, in the eyes the masses, the role was “ineffective”, and was basically a retirement home for ex-team members and leaders that were doing nothing for the future of GFL.          People with the new Community Advisor role have no permissions, but are solely just advisors. Members with this particular role do not necessarily make decisions, but are there to help Directors, Division Leaders, and Server Managers make decisions that will be best for the community. The higher-ups are the ones who make the final decisions, a veto system that will make our changing mechanics work better without the constant removing/adding of roles.   Promotions of The Month:          In late March, Benroy, one of the Directors for GFL, announced that 4 people will be promoted! Out of the 4, 2 people by the name of WigglesWorth and Liloz, were promoted to the role of Director because of their leadership skills and their experience working with GFL. After that, much needed CS:GO Division Leaders were now in action! Our 2 new Division Leaders for CS:GO are Leks and Cobra! They were given the DL role because of their experience with server management and determined attitudes. And added late in the month, A new Team Leader for Moderation was announced with Motorsteak taking over with Liloz01's promotion, and Fafy received Division Leader for our GMOD division.           GFL is ever changing, with people joining and people leaving daily. But these promotions will surely do GFL good! Congratulations to these staff members!   Final Notes: Motorsteak has released a disclaimer stating “if you have any issues with a moderator, I encourage you to please fill a staff feedback/abuse report.” Glad to see the initiative already!   Subdivisions are starting to see a resurgence in population; this may lead to needing staff, public events, and much more! Check out our forums for each for more information!   Do you like being creative? Are you a people person? Want to be apart of something great for GFL?

    6. GFL Newsletter - February 2019

      Public Relations     This month starts out strong with major changes in our PR team. With WigglesWorth taking the lead after Private Pull stepped down, PR has started to see changes in a total reconstruction of the team, including the Media Team. Some of these changes include Member Acceptors now becoming a Human Resources department, as we have a bot to accept the majority of member applications. There is much more to come, and here's to the rework going smoothly and becoming a beneficial team once again. Minecraft      Minecraft is looking for a new server manager to give the classic game and its following a renewal of life! Our skyblock and survival servers were left empty with last manager resigning to focus on IRL issues. If you're member+ with knowledge of bungeecord and how to manage a minecraft server, send a message to Benroy to discuss your interest in the server! Server Reboots     Many servers have seen a revival as it is this month too. Kite has upgraded and remade our left 4 dead 2 server, hosting multiple events and adding many new custom maps and add ons. Another server brought back is the infamous CSGO Jailbreak, headed by our very own Leks. Both of which have seen a spike in activity since reopening. Let's hope to see them continue to grow. Spotlight: GMod Purge Revival      Purge is a gamemode on Garry’s Mod that is influenced by the film franchise “The Purge”, where both the gamemode and the movie is set in a dystopian future in which every year, for one day, all crime is legal. All high-class government figures are exempt from the Purge and are thus spared from murder, theft, etc.. However, the civilians must either fend for themselves or attack - or else.      Purge now has some new features developed from pre-existing methods while also sprucing them up a bit to make sure Purge is running smoothly. These features include a completely revamped map made by Rick, a mix of new and old methods of making money, customizable player accessories, a simplified MOTD, and even more.     Flyingjoe32 is the leader of the new Purge server, and while he is very optimistic for the future and for GFL as a whole, he says he’s gotta start off by focusing on the now rather than the future. The server first should start running properly and smoothly before branching out any further. With this in mind, we’ve also got some other news about Purge: staff applications!     Staff applications are now open for the Purge GFL Server. Obviously, Purge is now kicking once more, and for it to be run properly, we’re gonna need some competent, obedient, and motivated moderators. Staff in general is very important, as it’s basically the support of a community. Playerbase is important, but without anyone to control the masses and to keep everything under control, that server is already done for. Check out the Staff Applications for Purge now to apply!     While Purge currently isn’t too invested in the future, the leader has high hopes that he can first start Purge up properly and smoothly and set the foundation for the future Purge. Come on in and have some fun!     Do you have an article suggestion for next month? Do you want to be our next spotlight? Contact the Media Team today!

    7. GFL Newsletter - January 2019

      Internal Merges     Today, we’ll be addressing a major change within the internals of GFL: the merge of all internal teams into one.     Within internal, there has always been a set of teams that focus on specific aspects of GFL. For example, there’s the Media Team, the Public Relations team, the Event Management team, and even the Moderation team. All of these teams specialize in a certain part of the team’s perpetual objectives. However, there has been a strange lack of communication between all of the teams, and so to unite the teams and allow better communication, the GFL upper management has decided to merge all of the teams into one.     The GFL Team Leaders and Directors made this decision with the hopes of increasing communications between teams and allowing easier methods of communication between teams. Before, the teams had separate discords, but there were no discord links present or pinned. Now, all the teams are compiled into one discord, and they are able to request something from one team and something else from another at will with extreme convenience.     Since this big change within GFL’s internals has just occured, there are bound to be many changes within the teams in order to fit the upper management’s directives and objectives. These might include adding other teams, creating new teams, or creating a set of rules to manage all teams at once now that they’re all together.     Hopefully the merge will allow the ease of access and communications that all of the internal teams have wanted for so long become a reality.   Karaoke Begins    We’re happy to announce that we are starting bi-weekly karaoke sessions on the GFL Main Discord.     Karaoke is a great way to show off your true singing voice, and even help you practice for something big. By singing in front of an audience, you benefit from it as you might overcome the fear of singing in front of an audience. In Discord, you can especially take people’s constructive criticism to heart and ignore all of the… other criticisms.     Karaoke is also extremely fun. Singing is a great talent that anyone can master, and usually it comes from the soul. Singing in general ranges from genre to genre, but everyone agrees that singing is enjoyable and charming in many instances.     So come on down to the bi-weekly karaoke sessions, hosted in the GFL Main discord! Come listen to some aspiring artists and singers, or become one of the main attractions yourself!   PROMO: HUMBLE BUNDLE   We’re pleased to announce that we have recently become Humble Bundle Partners! What this means for the community is that everytime you use our affiliate link, we will make 5% off of any store purchase, an adjustable 15% on bundle purchases, and $10 for every first time Humble Monthly subscriber! This is a great opportunity for you to snag some games while supporting GFL as well as charities! Link to the Humble Bundle store: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/?partner=gflclan&charity=159423   Left 4 Dead Division     Attention all zombie hunters, our very own Left 4 Dead division is getting a makeover! Thanks to community member Kite9867, who now manages the sequel games’ GFL servers, we are starting to see a revitalization of this particular subdivision in many new forms. Firstly, we now have more than 4 player slots, meaning more people to survive the apocalypse with. Secondly, a various amount of new, custom campaigns to ensure the players never grow bored. When asked about advancements in the division, Kite9867 has hinted at a small versus side project that comes with many new (currently undisclosed) gameplay bonuses. Be sure to check it out and don't forget a buddy.   The Rises and Falls of the Month   This month has been a rollercoaster of roles. Just as quickly as council was reestablished, it was again shut down for various reasons. In the wake, however, we had received a new director! Join me to congratulate Benroy on his promotion this month, as he gets ready to help make GFL the shining community once again, along the side of current directors: Xy, Connor (also known as Snoopy), X2D, and Rick Grimes. Along prominent promotions this month, Liloz01 has become the leader of moderation, managing the moderators on all official discords, our forums, and our teamspeak server. Another major promotion is our new PR team leader, Private Pull (aka Major Push), who has began the revamp of our teams to make them more efficient. I'd like to add a congratulations to all of our minor promotions this month as well. Whether you became a server admin, a member of a team, or somewhere in between the highs and lows, you have earned that spot and let me be the first to say well done.   Member Spotlight: Finnick    Finnick has been a long-time member here at GFL, and some of the community has become to know him well. He is most active on discord, and likes to post his current progress and finished art projects in the #art channel of GFL’s main discord (link: https://discord.gg/48yWqhF). Finnick is most known for his furry projects, and he takes commissions at affordable prices.     Finnick also has his own art thread, with his own Deviantart page on the same thread as well. On this thread, he likes to post the majority of his work for people who are unable to reach him on Discord. He’s been posting since 2016, but if you ask him, he’s most fond of the works he’s done in 2018!     Following this short article will be some of Finnick’s best works, picked by the artist himself. If you’d like to show him support, then join our discord and show him some love! You’re also welcome to commissioning a project yourself.   DEVIANTART PAGE:   https://www.deviantart.com/adonie   ART THREAD:   https://gflclan.com/forums/topic/1261-finnicks-art-thread/   Happy Birthday   One last thing - it’s GFL’s birthday! Or it was, at least. January 24th of 2019 marks GFL’s eighth birthday. We as a community and our staff members have come far in making sure that our players have a fun time that makes them want to come back for more. Over the past eight years, many opportunities have been taken by our founder, Roy, in order to allow flexibility in terms of what to play in GFL. We’ve racked up several servers in several games with several gametypes, and each of them has a good community behind them.   Once again, we are taking submissions on what to do for next month's newsletter. Feel free to reach out to the Media Team on our discord, or on our forums subsection.
