Why the fuck would I take suggestions from some low level pleb in the community? The management needs to answer for this not you.

"low level pleb"

nice.

but who the fuck are you?

Cutting Down On Servers
With GFL being rebuilt, we thought it would be best to cut down on game servers that:

  1. Don’t generate much traffic.
  2. Don’t generate any donations.

 

 

So does that mean most of the Garry's Mod servers are being scrapped?

Probably, anything that doesn't get population will get scrapped, its that simple

Not really, since it hasn't been done already. Most of those servers have had a hard time with population for a while. I'm just curious to see which ones are going.

Fresh start with the same management. You've essentially sent the same storm troopers back out again to get the Jedi after they failed the first 10 times....

This could be a decent analogy if stormtroopers weren't easily replaceable.

 

Your loss in trust is understandable, but your comment will not be taken seriously unless you propose a viable alternative to the current status quo.

Ha!  That reference reminds me of how the Soviet Union / Russia sends their soldiers out for slaughter.  They just send so many that they eventually win the war... with substantial losses.  Poor souls.  Studying Russian History right now for no good reason.

 

I think we got a lot of the trust issue stuff out of the way.  Most of them were exposed really well, or at least their ties, when the first one dropped the bomb.  I think a new forum and system of leadership - even with the same people - will add more safety interlocks in our decision making and prevent future problems.  Upgrading the forums is a great example of this.

 

The downfall with these extra safety procedures is that updates and change will become slower, but it's for the greater good if we want to preserve this community.  What a bummer that people have to ruin it for us and our community.

 

A great way for you guys to get around this or to improve our community is for you to strive for the leadership positions too.  It seems like you have something that you want to change, or if you don't trust someone or like their decisions, then attenuate their voice using your own...  help lead our community (you don't need a leadership position just yet to fill in the role).

Your lack of security and piss poor management decisions lead to my confidential information being leaked to the internet. Information I trusted to your website. You have failed and then prance back in here with a half ass apology and pretend it's all going to be okay. The trust is gone dude.

Being serious though, this is probably gonna end up getting locked. :¬¬:

I think most people would like to know "who" is responsible for the data breach. I don't blame Brandon for getting upset due to the data breach, especially if he was a donor.

 

A good website to check whether your email or account has been comprised is https://haveibeenpwned.com/ .

I hope not. Reading these comments have started to become a slight hobby of mine.

It's disgusting how the management and the hordes of unintelligent sheeple take this security breach as a joke. "Relax bro! Just all your information, and even confidental financial information like Paypal & Name has been leaked! Relax, you act like it's a huge thing" Uh, yeah, it's a huge thing, but the broad mass of members here aren't known for their brightness, no?

No examples in this thread from what I can see. Care to provide?

 

Keep in mind that joking about something isn't equating to the scenario in question to a joke. It's good to keep a good sense of humour around such matters. 9/11 was a tragedy, yet people joke about that all the time.

Too serious? My information has been leaked due to your enormous failure, even my fucking PayPal + Name etc has been dumped. Too serious? Get the fuck out, you have no sense of  responsibility if you think this is not a topic to be serious about

Why am I not surprised that the little girls in GFL don't get the reach of the problem *shrugemote*

It's really just that you're saying something unnecessary.

 

"GFL's management screwed up and had a massive security breach; there was some serious mismanagement!!"

 

Yeah, thanks. We know. We knew even before the 818568th reiteration. That being said, we do take criticism when it's constructive. For instance, BotoX's donation tracker was a good idea (we've been criticised for lacking something similar in the past), so we'll be looking into implementing something akin to that in the future.

First time I've seen @Shuruia use italics, or anything of that sort.

You're saying the blame is on the whole community, or anyone for that matter. What happened was not someone's failure, but a whole other person(s) success. When the Higher Ups were aware that there was even a chance someone could be within the data, they took all the precautions they could to secure it. Either way, the person was too deep, which no one knew.

 

Either way, its the internet. Someone dedicated enough could've found out at least some of that info if they wanted.
