    2. GFL Newsletter - August/September/October 2019

      August/September/October 2019 Newsletter       A small introduction   Hey there, I just wanted to take this moment to introduce myself. Hello, I am Trigger, the Writing Team's Leader. From now on I will be managing the Writing Team and everything they do. I have a lot of great ideas for the future of the Writing Team and hope to see them come to light!  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to PM me.   Thank you and enjoy the GFL Newsletter!     The Newsletter       ------2 New CS:GO servers, Minigames and 24/7 AWP------     After much long discussion and debate, please welcome two brand new servers to GFL’s server list, 24/7 AWP and Mini-games! Both were highly requested from players since the success of Jailbreak. It’s almost a guarantee that these will do just as great! Please come and visit our servers, we are sure that you will find something you’ll like!   You can find CS:GO 24/7 AWP here ---> https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/1061-awp-247/ As well as Mini-games, here --->  https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/1060-minigames/     ------RivalRevival stepping down as Director------     Our dearest friend, Wiggles, has officially stepped down as Director.    Wiggles (RivalRevival) has contributed greatly to GFL by leading as a director and supporting the community as a committed player. Over the years, Wiggles has worked his way up the ranks to achieve such a position. His dedication and commitment to GFL prove that he will forever be a reputable player within the community. Though he has left officially, he will still be around Discord to chat with everyone, even coming in once in a while to help the GFL staff.     ------Removal of Media Team------     In case you’ve haven’t heard, the Media team and most of the teams in it are officially removed. Our Directors believed that most of the team was unnecessary and time-consuming. Video Editor and Streamer roles were removed with Media Team. However, the Writer role was moved to Public Relations and GFX was made into its own team. This change was foreseen by many, as the workload and effort from these teams were minimal.    If you wish to apply for the remaining teams, you can do so here:   Public Relations - https://gflclan.com/forms/13-public-relations-application/ GFX - https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/10-graphics-team/     ------The success of PR’s Event Coordinators------     If you haven’t been to one of their “fun times”, well then you’re missing out. The Event Coordinators have created a multitude of events for GFL. Some examples of their work would be movie nights, talent shows, and karaoke. For movie nights, they choose a wide variety of movies to play for the audience. Obviously, it being October they chose horror movies. And I’m sure that for December, they’ll choose Christmas-themed movies. Talent shows were introduced in late October. You can audition for a part and perform in front of an audience! You will need some sort of talent to audition, so make sure to go in unique!    More about the Talent Show ---> https://gflclan.com/forums/topic/47860-event-gfls-1st-annual-talent-show/   Movie night seems to be a favorite among members of GFL, so if you have the time make sure to check them out!     ------New GFL game in development------     Ever wanted to murder a GFL staff member? Well here’s your chance!   In early October, a GFL developer by the name of Rocket came up with the idea to create a “GFL Video Game”. Now, I know what you’re thinking, but hear me out. His idea is to have GFL staff members attack you, the player, all while you simultaneously gun them down with a multitude of weapons. The game will be a 2D platformer with randomly generated levels.    As of October 28th, the game is still in development. Hopefully in due time the game will be finished, and should be quite beautiful!     ------Partnership with Glitch.win------     In mid-October, a person by the name of Rocky contacted Ben about a possible partnership with their* site. The site, Glitch.win, will reward users for completing in-game objectives. After Ben and Rocky conversed about the matter, they finally came to a wonderful conclusion! That conclusion being that Glitch.win will provide giveaways to GFL , however, in return those who enter the giveaway will have to sign up on their website to qualify.    Their giveaways are always new and diverse, so be sure to check out the given rewards!   Advertisements     ---Writing Applications---     Writers are tasked with creating Newsletters and taking on requests for GFL. We are currently looking for more writers, so if you're interested in helping GFL then please visit the links below.   More information about Writer here --->    You can apply for Writer here ---> https://gflclan.com/forms/98-writer-application-form/   ---Event Coordinator Applications---   Event Coordinators host events inside and outside of GFL. Whether it be a talent show or a free for all in-game, they surely come up with some eccentric ideas! If you're interested in doing this sort of thing, then please visit the links below.   More information about Event Coordinator here --->      You can apply for Event Coordinator here ---> https://gflclan.com/forms/94-event-coordinator-application-form/     Don't look here please, thanks ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    6. GFL Newsletter - May/June/July 2019

      New Badges (May) It is with great pleasure that we announce the new badges! Badges have been recently updated to accommodate the people’s request of a newer and more recent design. The previous design had many flaws, but it got the job done, and so the request was inevitably locked away. However, @queue, the previous designer of the old badges, has come back to create a new design for the badges. He has created two new designs, and sent out a poll for the community to vote on which design to implement (or even keep the old design, if anyone even wanted it.) Queue has worked on this for a long time now, and is very satisfied with his work. The community is also pleased! The old badges had different designs for the same roles, and were not consistent in design because of this. It was also difficult to pinpoint the accurate rank of a staff member without asking the member him/herself. The new badges have its own system to help differentiate between ranks, and the layout is simple enough for anyone to understand (provided they want to). This badge renovation was done to show how GFL tries its hardest to interact with and work with its community, even though it has other things to work on. A happy community benefits us all, be you a staff member, a director, or a player.Highest player Count (May) Everyone from GFL has always wanted something big to happen. Well, here it is! The highest record of online players from mid-June 2016 has finally been broken! You heard me right! As of now, the new highest record of online players is 690 out of 1546! The number of players is counted from 30 of our servers.   We can thank the new (and for one in particular, “renewed”) servers for breaking the record. One server that contributed the most was our Rust server, which saw a online player count of 165 on a 200 player server! Now we just have to beat our all-time record, which is 1299 players online!   New Donation System (June) As per Roy’s request to reshape the donation system, the director team has created a trello to collect all ideas for the donation system. Our current donation system has been in need of a slight renovation for a while now, and Roy has given the task to the directors. The directors have created a trello to track all incoming suggestions, and all suggestions have been made by server managers, directors themselves, or other people that are currently in charge of a server. A form has also been created for server managers or administrators to submit their own suggestions. The idea here is to get the staff involved to see what they would like implemented into their server’s donation system or GFL’s donation system as a whole. Once suggestions stop rolling in, the directors will look at all the suggestions and pick which ones should be completed (if not all). We look forward to see what changes will be made and to what servers (or maybe to all servers!). Several suggestions have already been made and are already in the process of being reviewed, but suggestions are still open to the staff.Roy's Career (June) After 8+ years here at GFL, Roy will be taking a step back in order to focus on his own life. He has built up this community and nurtured it with a safe and fun environment, focusing solely on the happiness of the community and doing everything in his ability to keep it running to the best of his ability. Every cent he has earned has gone straight to GFL, and all of his work in these past years has mainly been for GFL. He has assembled a large team of directors, developers, managers and more to oversee GFL as a whole in order to make it easier - but Roy has to progress his own life, too. Roy is 21 and started on this community at an early age; around 12. Now that he’s all grown up, he needs to support himself - after all, life take precedence over everything else. He’s currently got his own job and is obviously pursuing and learning the ins and outs of hosting providers, so Roy will be taking a step back from GFL in order to work hard at these things. On top of that, Roy has lost motivation and time in order to complete all the ideas he has - so he’s given them all to the directors and developers, whom he trusts will work hard to accomplish these tasks. Roy will not leave GFL completely; in a way, he is GFL, so he will be working on the Anycast network, but he will not be helping out in anything else.   New Gmod Division leader (June) As of the 22nd of the June, the new Division Leader for Garry’s Mod is Zero! The Former DL, Zebra, has decided that Zero is the best candidate for DL. Of course, this decision wasn’t out of nowhere. Zebra hasn’t been able to do much for the Gmod servers and he is quite busy with things outside of GFL. As for why he wanted Zero to be DL, well, Zero is well known for his skills with development and server management. That alone is worthy of a DL position.    Now let's not forget about Zebra here. Since Zebra is a longstanding member of GFL, and his opinion on matters within GFL is appreciated. He will be moved to the Community Advisor position. As a Community Advisor, he will be able to assist GFL staff with internal problems. Make sure to congratulate Zero, and to thank Zebra for his hard work within GFL! TF2 Servers (July) Hey, guess what? Our TF2 servers are in the top 10! You heard me right! Our 24/7 2Fort server is currently ranked #2 on Gametracker, holding an average player count of 30! Our other server, 24/7 Hightower, holds the rank of #10! It has an average player count of 22. Although the success of these two servers was doubted, it is clear now that bringing them back was a great idea!    These servers are sure to stay in the top 10! We can only hope to implement even more TF2 servers in the future. Also, if you have any suggestions for our TF2 servers, then please leave a suggestion on our TF2 Suggestions thread.   Final Notes Starting this off with an introduction, Hello, I'm the New Team leader for Public Relations, I go by Davoony for the Most part, but You're more than welcome to Call me Jade, I'm looking Forward to Finally Getting Newsletters out in a Timely Fashion, For now, I'm posting all the Ones currently Missing.   Currently, PR is in need of New members, More specifically, it's Human Resources, and Event coordinator Team (Writing Applications for Newsletters and Stuff to come Aren't setup, i'm actively trying to get that Fixed).   Human resources is a Team that Welcomes and Allows players to become a Member of GFL, and Sometimes if needed, provides a Tour of the Forums, This team currently needs More active Members, Feel free to Apply Today! https://gflclan.com/forms/13-public-relations-application/   Event Coordinator is a Team that Hosts Events for Everyone to partake in, Such as Uno Online or Karaoke Nights, This team currently has Few active members and is Looking for more, Feel free to Apply Today! https://gflclan.com/forms/13-public-relations-application/   Currently Conflict resolution is Disbanded and Likely won't be making a Come back, I'm actively Seeking to Clean up Everything with all the new PR changes, Please, Bear with me.   And for the Last Note, Writing has become part of PR and much like CR, i'm actively trying to get Applications up for Writing, and Setting up Everyone with the Correct roles that moved from Media Team (Expect this to be Covered more in the Next Newsletter)   That is all for Now, I look forward to getting the Newsletters up Monthly or Bi-monthly Whichever One seems more possible with the Current team members, See all of you Next Time!
