  1. It’s been an honour to help GFL as a council member, I know my time was short as a council member. This has brought me some insite to the community and taught me a lot about myself and GFL and I am very thankful for the opportunity to have become a council member. So thank you.
  2. Oh great, best CS:GO DL we have ever had. Im so sorry you feel this way. I really believed in your visisions for the community and your division! You did amazing work and I was so happy when you got promoted. So sad to see you go. thanks for the help on rust and really nice talking to you, hope we can keep in touch ❤️
  3. @Decoy Made these suggestions regarding the forums, we will be looking at them and seeing if we can implement them, feel free to check them out and see what you guys think, also thanks for the suggestions @Decoy
  4. Hello, everyone. We are wanting everyone's opinion on changes they would like to see implemented on the forums. Suggestions can emotes, moving subforums around, reworking subforums/divisions, cleaning up old posts, anything you guys can think of. We will take on board and try to implement your suggestions. Any suggestions in regards to changing the forums for the better is highly welcomed. Thanks.
  5. Sad to see you leave so soon! You had so much potential to lead the media team is the right direction, sad to hear you felt that way. I hope once you’re ready you join the media team back and bring back them amazing GFX skills. ❤️❤️
  6. Hello, Sadbandit in regard to your question, What changes have you/will you do to the team? Because ever since I asked that question the answer has always been a “you will see” or “changes are coming”, and I’ve given you in detail what I’ve done, so I’d like for you to do the same. So, to start off my list of what I have done within GFL so far in regards to change, I’m going to be listing how I became the role I am now, it all started off with me contact Christian/Roy, I was generally talking to him and he told about the current issues within GFL I then offered some advice and ideas that might help the community, this lead to myself and qDogg making a document, https://docs.google.com/document/d/1du0JE0PURD6BYqjb5-wXWdOOsRqq3U-EYgtjcc1cS9A/edit?usp=sharing Then myself and qDogg got added into the “Internal” discord and a channel was created called Feedback, for nearly over a month we were getting feedback from the internal members and the Team Leaders at the time, most was positive about the changes and some weren’t regarding some suggestions we had put forward, the main one we suggested was the Merge of the teams, which everyone was concerned about this is something we knew needed to happen as most of the teams didn’t have enough power nor activity within the teams. After looking over them for a while and seeing what could be changed and the ideas we both had. Then I and qDogg got promoted to Team Leaders, this was something which caused drama and upset for how the promotions were handled and how we were just placed in the team not knowing that the other Team Leader wasn’t aware of the upcoming changes we have planned. How our promotion was executed was terrible, which this is something that couldn’t be helped as Rick had limited time to act on how this was going to happen. The tension within the team was appalling and not much time was given to the Directors or our selves to explain why we were in the roles. I started making changes within the Media team discord because I believed me joining the discord was resulting in Sadbandit and Flyingjoe being demoted. This was not the case until later on, without my knowledge as I thought it was happening I started doing changes and posting and asking the media team what changes they would like to see and I was speaking to the Second in command role within Media team which was Rose/Aura. I proceeded to do changes, thinking the demotions of the two current leaders was going to happen shortly, this was not the case, furthermore, this caused upset and disruption without the media team knowing what I was doing there and the current leaders themselves, which I have apologised for countless times! I didn’t know I was allowed to share my ideas with the Media team nor was approved by Rick to say go ahead and suggest them until a later date, this is why my comment about changes was blunt nor had any real information which I apologise for again, as I am aware this caused upset in regard to this. Due to me causing issues, I wasn’t aware at the time the current leaders of the media team created a discord chat bashing me to other members within the team and trying to convince current members to deny any changes. Plus with the merge happening, in regards to this trying to convince second in command Rose/Aura to try and get me to lose my role within the media team discord. I wasn’t aware until afterwards everyone was “plotting” against me, which is something which shocked me and it upset me when people could just come and speak to me if they had an issue or question. I don’t believe I am an unapproachable person. I encourage people to talk about concerns they have and any suggestions I propose or anything people don’t like, I do listen. With this happening and no one wanting me within the media team or nothing to do with the changes and plans and goals I had, I decided it would be the best for me to leave the media team as I felt I wasn’t wanted. After that, I decided to still be in the discord, I did eventually share my ideas with the current leader, and they seemed to really like my ideas, which I was pleased with. I don’t hold any grudges against people as we have to work together if we want things to work. I was willing to help them achieve my ideas as I wanted to see them work and implemented. I refused to have any rank within the media team discord as I didn’t want to cause any more upset. So this brings me to the question what have I done so far in regards to the teams and what are the plans. We posted the Merge for transparency as everyone wanted transparency of changes, the final plan and how everything was going to work is still in the works, which is concerning me, since no one is willing to give us time to put a document together explaining the changes and how we want things to run with the merge and the new sub-leader rank. Sadly, the topic has become toxic and not supporting changes or having actual opinions or advice, it’s just constantly bashing on something which we’re trying to implement Currently what I have done: Somewhat cleaning up the forums, this is a work in progress, check here for updates: https://gflclan.com/forums/topic/10908-website-updates/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-181211 Currently, in the progress of setting up the merge and making sure sub-forums are in the correct place of the merge, E.G: https://gflclan.com/forums/forum/769-public-relations/ All the subforums before are merged within the public relations main sub-forum, Got Rick to set up the Sub-Leader rank as this is something council can’t do, we had him give them permissions to just edit their subforum so they have no other permissions, also giving them access to accept members in their applications area. I merged all the teams within the public relations rank, adding everyone under one rank, getting Roy to remove Media and Events Management, as it’s no longer a needed rank. -Thanks. This is something which was planned months ago, as the internal discord was aware that these changes were going to be implemented and mostly agreed with. (Most of the changes, was implemented by Worgee and I) Worgee and I decided to tackle the Member acceptor team as that was abandoned and forgot about, we removed all the inactive members, since we went back and checked to see if any of the current member acceptors were accepting applications, this leads to the majority of the member acceptor team getting removed from the role, as they weren’t active nor accepted a member applications for weeks, and even months, so surprising when we check and do changes and remove people from the role they weren’t active in they come out of the shadows and complain when they weren’t active in the first place. This is sad as we make changes people come back and complain and ask why their role was removed? You shouldn’t need to ask when you know why. Then Xy, added a bot to accept member applications. The only apps it doesn’t accept is those with a ban on record and/or with a VAC (Xy can correct if wrong). this makes the role of accepting members easier and quicker so people aren’t waiting around, but if they have a ban or vac ban a member acceptor deals with their application. This is something which is a very good idea to have and helps bring members into the community quicker, so thank you, Xy, for that. In regard to what the Sub Leader role is and what the Merge means and what’s going to be happening will be posted soon in another post. So, for now, all we ask is for your patience. ALSO THE VOTE ON THE MERGE: https://gyazo.com/da9bfaebef11722cbaa5064db5212d45 ENJOY (all team members and manager+ were able to vote) Thanks - Joel The topic will now be locked.
  7. Hi, @TheSadBandit I’m currently busy with Work, after I’ve finished work and got home I’ll write a response to your question. Apologise for the delay as I’ve only had access to my phone and the response would be inadequate. Also I hid mine and yourself post as I believed it wasn’t needed nor necessary to the topic, put it seems the topic can’t be dropped so I will be writing a response later today. Thanks.
  8. I’m going to lock this to stop anymore unnecessary drama.
  9. To clarify to some people questions about "Member Acceptors", You will be managed by someone of the PR Sub Leader Team, this doesn't mean you will be getting Public Relations rank on the forums, nor will you be added to the discord server. Member acceptors have a sub-forum and possibly a PM, so any help or anything you can contact the leader of the Member acceptor team (Once one has been decided) but for now, a Council member, such as myself and @Worgee . Thanks, any more questions feel free to ask or any concerns please comment them here
  10. They will be managed by one of the leaders, within the PR team.
  11. Website Updates

    07/01/2019 1. Merged, Media Team, Events Management and Public Relations into one subforum. 2. Added Sub Leader role, to manage the sub-divisions such as PR, Media and Events and Moderation. 3. Removed Media Team role and Event Management role.
  12. Hello everyone, Currently, the teams are all split up into individual teams, this is going to be changing. Moderation will be staying the same and will be managed by Kite and Benroy, they will both decide on a sub-leader to manage Moderation, so they will only need to step into if the leader needs help on decisions, the sub-leader will be running the team and working closely with other sub-leaders. Media Team, Events Management and Public Relations will all be combined into 1 team managed by Joel, and Worgee. The team will also have sub-leaders this team will have 3 sub-leaders one for PR, 1 for Media ect, they will all be in charge of the Sub-Division inside of Public Relations, this is the new name of the all of the teams combined. We expect that all of the sub-leaders will work together and communicate, if the council believe the jobs aren’t being pushed and things aren’t progressing, the council will take control and make sure all of the jobs and tasks are done. Council will be there to help execute ideas the sub-leaders and team may have and to deal with situations which need council members to help to deal with. The council role will not be primarily focusing on the teams, the council will be there to assist if any of the teams need help, but the primary focus of council will be pushing GFL projects and being the face of GFL making important decisions ect. Move MA to PR team. Hierarchy: Council - Joel and Worgee A potential leader of the PR team ( TBD ) Sub-leaders for subteams (PR, Media, Events or what is needed) Media - Aura/Rose/Ms.Shadow PR - Private pull/Major push Events - Worgee (til a substitute can be found) Team members (any current leader can stay if they please)
  13. Looking for group

    I’ll play some rust with you, but I’m not dedicated to it. Sadly. Especially when I play with people who are on different times zones and they get way ahead while I’m alseep.
