    Hello, everyone. In this post, I would like to outline some changes to the internal structure of GFL's higher-ups and how this is intended to impact GFL. Community Advisors changed to Council Community advisors will be changed to Council with a new job. The new Council rank will be at the same level as a division leader. New Jobs/Roles Maintain the community as a whole. May help division leaders (with their consent) with their divisions. May help divisions without a leader (E.g. Call of Duty 4, Fistful of Frags, etc.). Work with the directors on projects. Advise the community. This includes brainstorming ideas when not working on any projects and addressing them to the directors. Look for people with potential and address them to the other Council members & directors. Other The Council and directors should be working on the same projects together. The Council are essentially directors, just with less access (back end and such). Revamping the Council Team The team itself could be revamped. This means we should demote inactive members who don’t show enough interest in GFL, and promote members who have potential and are willing to dedicate a lot of time into GFL. If a member is inactive, they should be given a warning immediately; if they continue being inactive without a valid reason, it will immediately progress to demotion. We shouldn’t be waiting so long on demoting people. If somebody doesn’t show interest, dedication and motivation, they should be demoted. All members from the current community advisor team we plan on keeping should be talked to before this Council change is in effect. We should ask if they’re still interested and possess the will to truly step up (spend more time on GFL and do all the new jobs/roles assigned to them with Council), gain feedback on what we (directors) can improve on, and more. Directors Given More Access With the Council change, directors will be given more access in the future. This includes access to the back end (web and game servers such as OVH). With this change, we have to prepare our user base. This leads to even more ideas. The reason we are giving directors more access is to take the load off of Roy. If Roy isn’t available, there’s a high chance a director can fix the issue with the back end (e.g. the website going down). They will have the access to fix it and can try to. If they don’t know how to, they can try googling the issue or just wait until a director with more experience comes online. Why? The biggest issue with giving directors access to the back end is trust. I trust that most of you still remember what happened last year and the negative effect it had on GFL, but after the past year and a half, I have realized that I need to give access to more people. Many things such as giving access to new managers or completing various tasks in the back end relies on me and it is heavily backed up. For example, look at the web VM move; I wanted to complete this back in the summer and it still isn’t complete. I tried getting Balon to help me, but he turned out to be inactive and busy. If our goals are to get GFL off of the ground again (which they are), we need to start trusting people again; that’s just the reality of the situation. GFL won’t get far if we can’t trust people that can potentially have a major positive effect on GFL. What happens if I have to leave for a while and nobody else has access to the back end? What happens if the website goes down? We need others there we can rely on. This may also give the directors more motivation as well. Preparation The biggest part about this change is preparing for it. We saw what happened in the past. If one of our directors goes rogue, we must prepare for the worst. Nobody will have access to the PayPal besides me. The most a director could gain access to is the PayPal API credentials, but you cannot take funds out of the PayPal account with only the API credentials. Therefore, the worst possible thing a director can do is dump the IPS 4 user’s database table including emails and hashed passwords. Although these passwords are hashed, it still would be very bad if this was to happen. Realistically, if a hacker got into our back end, they could also dump the database table. Now, I wanted to do this back in the summer of 2016, but I haven’t been able to. Realistically, no website on the Internet is safe and the best thing a user can do is secure themselves from any possible breaches. While we aren’t expecting any breaches in our database, we should definitely prepare ourselves and our users for them. I would like to have a page in the About GFL project dedicated to explaining security. While we are confident in our security, we should also explain no websites are 100% safe. We should be telling the truth to our users about security and highly encourage them to use a random generated password (or a password not used on any other websites/logins). We should also recommend programs such as LastPass or KeePass. I feel this may also deter hackers away from GFL; if we were bragging about our security, it would probably increase the chances of a hacker wanting to try to get through our security. I would also like to add our thoughts on security to the user registration page (perhaps under the password field). We could even add a button that automatically generates and uses a random password along with copying to the clipboard for the user. Another idea is sending a forum PM/email to the user after registration about security (along with general GFL information). The next worst thing a director who has gone rogue can do is completely delete our files. This can include our website files or just game servers. This can also include the virtual machines themselves. This is why I want to implement an automatic backup system in GFL that backs everything up hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly. We should be trying to back up as many services as possible. This includes our websites, databases, game servers, and virtual machines (perhaps the core files). Balon has recommended some services we can use that are cheap (cheaper than purchasing a separate machine for backups). External Consultant Badge I would like to make an external consultant badge for our technical administrators that aren’t a part of GFL, but still help out when needed. These members (as of now) would be @setup.sh and @balon. We’re Looking For Potential We are currently looking for motivated, interested, and trustworthy members of the community to join our staff team and assist us with the upkeep and expansion of GFL as a whole. We are currently figuring out the logistics of how we plan on recruiting individuals, and an announcement will be made soon with more information. Darkling as Council Leader So far, the current community advisors know this. However, for those that do not know, @Darkling will be “leading” the Council team. While he won’t have a separate rank and will still be a part of Council, he will be leading the team overall. There is a possibility we will make a badge representing the fact that he is the leader. Darkling has a lot of motivation for GFL. In my opinion, he is a role model to the Council. He is motivated, dedicated, mature, and generally very approachable. From what I’ve seen, nobody has a problem with him being leader of the Council team and after asking a couple of CAs, they said they already look up to him as a CA leader. We are discussing more changes and have more to announce in the near future! Thanks!

    Dear GFL members, The GFL staff team support Net Neutrality! We believe everyone should have the knowledge to make an informed decision and help shape American policy that could affect us all! If the FCC ends Net Neutrality, GFL could be regarded as a gaming website and could become more expensive by about $15! A gaming pack that includes Steam, Discord, TeamSpeak etc, will cost an extra $25 with the added premium! However, the US Congress has the power to block this. If you live in the U.S, you can stop the FCC from ending it! If you’re in the US, let your representatives and congress know about your support of Net Neutrality here https://www.battleforthenet.com/ or https://www.callmycongress.com/ Discords CEO Jason, posted explaining Discord's position with Net Neutrality https://blog.discordapp.com/why-discord-supports-net-neutrality-8f5e2b8b88f5 The FCC chairman makes a statement about Net Neutrality here: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2017/db1121/DOC-347868A1.pdf News article including projections, and statistic about 98.5% of comments on Net Neutrality: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/11/rip-net-neutrality-fcc-chair-releases-plan-to-deregulate-isps/ Other news articles- https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2017/11/21/the-fcc-has-unveiled-its-plan-to-rollback-its-net-neutrality-rules/?utm_term=.40bc6541969e https://www.politico.com/story/2017/11/20/net-neutrality-repeal-fcc-251824 Similar post regarding this issue We need to save Net Neutrality and keep them protected!

    Hello everyone. You may have noticed that we have a new role on the forums called Event Coordinators. This role was inspired by GCC and their approach towards event management. Currently there are four members of GFL who have been doing amazing work within GCC and pushing them forward with every event they produce. These members are @Runda @Pyros @Syntax and @Kubnair. The sheer amount of effort each one of them has put into their work within GCC is phenomenal! That is why these members will be the first four to start up our Event Coordinator team! Now for some details about this team and what they can do within there new role. My aim for the team is for one GFL event a month, starting with a Christmas themed event which they are starting to work on now. They will continue to work within GCC to provide events. However they can now request usage of GFL's servers and any other reasonable resource for use within GCC and for GFL events. They will be able to use the Creative team to create GFX for events and for recording/streaming and tweeting the events. They have access to request the Developer team to edit plugins for usage within events. They are able to work with our Server Managers to be able to create events on our current servers. They have been given permissions to directly post and feature posts within the events sub-forum. Lastly they have been given TeamSpeak permissions to edit and use the Event channel, in order to support using TeamSpeak during events. Now I would like to mention that working within GCC is not required by the role, however the team does need to be involved in the events from GCC. There will be opportunities for members to apply and help out the Event Coordinators but that will currently be handled through PMs instead of an application form. This new role is something that will give us all something to look forward to and will help provide GFL with some regular, quality events. I have a lot of belief in the current members of the team and look forward to their upcoming work within GFL! View full article

    I was thinking the other day, and I noticed that we seemed to be getting quite a few calladmin requests. So, I thought that there should be a way for us admins + to let the players know that the admin request has been recieved, and an admin is coming online. Therefore, I belive that we should implement a !Respond command into the shoutbox. The bot would take the steamid of the staff member and in the server it would display, for example (maybe in yellow? We could use the forum tag colours for name and staff type?): Admin Moose has responded to your calladmin request. Please wait. <Role> <Staff Name> has responded to your calladmin request. Please wait. Then, a PM from the Bot would be sent to the staff member saying that the response was sent. Also included in the PM, an invite link to the server (like the gametracker tags in the division list). In order to make sure the staff member is genuinely an admin for the server, it could check against the admin.ini file for the server and if matched, everything above takes place. If not, then the response is denied, and a pm is sent to the staff saying they are uneledgeable to respond to the call. We could add this to the point system that has been continuously discussed. I think that it could work and I understand it will be awkward to get it to work, but once in practice, it would be beneficial to those on the server as they know their report has been seen. Obviously there will be tweaks and such, I just wanted to throw out the idea and see what can become of it. Overall, we should let the players know that we are on the way. The players on the server can still record rule breakers whilst in wait, and deliver the evidence to the admin so they can sort the issue. Otherwise, they won’t know whether we’re actually reading the calladmin requests and on our way over. Thanks, Moose.

    For those of you that live in the United States, there is a drastic change being pushed by our legislature that could have devastating implications on the future of the internet. I'm talking about the FCC's push to destroy Net Neutrality. In case you didn't know, Net Neutrality is a set of rules for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) that prevent them from throttling / forcing users to pay for access to specific sites. For example, if Netflix wanted to make sure it didn't get throttled, it would have to pay ISPs like Comcast tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars just to make sure that its users could easily view their favorite videos. It also has the capability for ISPs charge consumers for access to things like Facebook, Amazon, Youtube, Playing games online, etc. Think of it like the sports package on your TV subscription. You want ESPN, you pay $15 a month. They have the ability to do that for whatever website they want, if Net Neutrality is destroyed. The Chairman of the FCC is going to be pushing to abolish this within a few days, and the only thing standing between him and destroying Net Neutrality is Congress. As a result of this Lobbyists have for the large Cable/ISP companies have been pushing congress to agree with its demolition, however with enough push at a local level, we can influence our congressmen and women to vote to keep existing Net Neutrality policies. You can find out who your local legislators are by visiting this website and entering your Zip Code: https://whoismyrepresentative.com/ You can then email (or snail mail if you prefer) your support of Title 2 Net Neutrality. If you would like to call your local congressional offices (I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU DO), please visit this website: https://www.battleforthenet.com/ All you have to do is enter your phone number, an automated machine will call you asking for your zip code, and it will automatically call any representatives that apply to your location. They will also provide a script for you to say (so you don't have to feel awkward) and when you're done with one, you can press * (star) to have them reconnect you to the next applicable representative. Please, do not let corporations destroy our internet experience. Keep the Net Neutral. Thank you. If you have any questions or want to voice other ways to support, comment below

    Well hello there... Some of you may have seen me around before and I'm sure even more are noticing me for the first time. My name is Crawfish or Craw, but not Fish. I'm not fishy at all, I swear. If you've seen me in CS:GO before it was probably on a Zombie Escape server. That's where I spend most of my time if I'm playing CS:GO. Way back in the day, I would play CS 1.6 and the Zombie Mod they had on there. Zombie Plague was pretty different though. Times have changed quite a bit and the people that play have changed as well. I enjoy meeting new people and having new experiences in general. @Roy and I have talked a lot lately and I'm sure you'll see me around helping out where I'm useful. I'm just gonna be looking to see what I can do to help GFL. I think I provide some valuable experience since I've been in and around counter-strike community servers for over 10 years. I have seen both the side of a player and also the side of server/community management. From this unique perspective, I've seen many different aspects of a community and I feel I have learned a lot that can be put to use. I love to write and to talk in general, so I hope to become more involved and eventually get to know many more people. Thanks for reading this long intro!

    It's great seeing the staff communicating like this! It has been this way for the last four days or so (all day). This must keep up in my opinion and communication is improving a lot from it. We will be making adjustments and changes in the next few days or so!

    As someone that plays as a regular on a server that has a plugin that gives rewards based on damage done to zombies (won't say name of server so as not to advertise), the main problem with this plugin is that people that care about the rewards end up shooting zombies during boss fights instead of the boss (if there isn't a wall in front of the zombies that is). Usually, the boss fight proceeds just fine if only 1 or 2 people do this, but if more than that grind damage during the boss, it easily leads to you losing what should have been an easy boss fight. Such a plugin certainly does have benefits, but I thought I should mention one of the primary downfalls it and that you may want to add a rule prohibiting such actions if this plugin is added.

    Well, I along with a few others (@Ariistuujj, @Xy_, and @Darkling) have been preparing the current forum theme for IPS 4.2. Hopefully once that's done, I'll get the new web VM fully setup soon and we can finally move the website over to the new web VM (NGINX) and upgrade to IPS 4.2.x

    Furthermore, there could be a way for us to add a message to the call, and if it’s a false calladmin report, (eg. the reason is: hi) then you can type !callremove or !calldeny to cancel the calladmin request and add a reason. It would look like this in game (Once again in a yellow, or orange colour as red/green is commonly used for messages): Admin Moose has declined your calladmin request. Reason: Inappropriate use of calladmin. And this in shoutbox: !calldeny Inappropriate use of calladmin. Then, if declined 3 times (consecutively) due to poor reasons/abuse of calladmin, it would automatically block the player from !calladmin for 2 hours (for example). A statement could also be added for !respond, eg: (in shoutbox) !respond Im coming, let me load up CS. (In server) Admin Moose has responded. Please wait. Message: I’m coming, let me load up CS. I would also like to point out that the command wouldn’t be hidden in shoutbox so other admins and players can see you responded to the call or denied it (If deemed necessary, it could be hidden from those below admin). If !respond or !calldeny is used by someone below admin, nothing would happen.

    Looks like one of our OVH machines went down for the second night in a row. I have looked at the boot logs for VMWare and I don't believe it's anything on our side. With that said, according to the boot log times and time of when the our CoD 4 server went down, the machine was down for a few hours and stated back up an hour and a half ago (by OVH probably)... I've submitted a ticket to OVH asking about this. Also going to see how the progress is going with Pterodactyl since I want them to add a feature that automatically starts up servers when the machine is booted up. Servers that were affected in this event: Cod 4 FFA/S&D, Rust, and CS:GO Arena/Surf RPG DM/BHop. I apologize for this inconvenience, let's hope OVH replies soon!

I would absolutely love to give you another chance, but you've been banned time and time again... This is your 7th ban on Purge and there's no way I can unban you with the fact that your most recent ban was for 15 warnings. You're free to reappeal in the future, whenever that may be. Thanks.

    I've spent my entire morning working on the back end of GFL. I've been reading a lot about optimizing MySQL & MariaDB along with PHP-FPM and NGINX. I've optimized the PHP-FPM pools on our Web VM that hosts SourceBans, HLStatsX, and so on. I've recently made changes to our MySQL server that should overall increase performance as well. With the help of @Ariistuujj, @Xy_, @Darkling, and I the IPS theme we currently use is prepared for IPS 4.2.x (we will be upgrading in the near future). Still fixing a few bugs here and there related to CSS. I will be talking to people tonight about GFL and I hope to get a lot of stuff done with the community as a whole.

    These are the colors you can use in in-game chat. Capitalization shouldn’t matter, each color will work with lower case guaranteed though. They are not forum colors, many people have asked me if they work on the forums. They do not. These colors need to be between brackets [ ] to work. Place the brackets with the color code before each character you would like colored. For Example, [red]Hi -> Hi [green]G[blue]r[purple]e[red]e[orange]t[yellow]i[green]n[blue]g[purple]s -> Greetings Basic Colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, White, Black, Grey - Usable by everyone Gold, Teal, Pink - Special Color Variants (Supporter+) Rainbow - Red, Green, Blue (Admin+) Rainbow2 - White, Light Blue, Pink, Red (Admin+) Special Colors: *These are made from giveaways, or special requests to @Winter.

    Ok, so I have noticed that 999 is a 'class D' category. Because of this, when it is just 999 and guards, the only way to end the round is to kill it, which is not allowed. taggong @Xy_, while I know there are other things, is there a way to make 999 a different class, or something so this doesn't have to happen?

    Probably twice a year, or more. But this time it's pretty important because: This FCC chairman is a hobbyist, he used to work for Verizon as the lawyer. It is set to end after a vote that had 3-2 regardless of news article including projections, and statistic about 98.5% of comments on Net Neutrality. A battle like this will never ends unless we get someone who can lead without forcing capitalism
