  1. If you're trying to Report abusive admin behavior, Please use this Instead https://gflclan.com/forms/11-abuse-reports-form/ That is the proper route of the Forums for this type of Thread, And be sure to have proof aswell. I'm locking this thread until further notice, and Moving it. Have a Good Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  2. Firstly, I won't speak for anyone else, but putting "Directors, Leaders, and others" is a REALLY broad term, Because i've seen you around MAYBE 2-3 times and i've been a Long time lurker pretty much everywhere on the forums, I don't really know you, I haven't really seen you around as much as you say you've been. Secondly, And more importantly, Stating that Anyone on the Mod team is a friend, Whether true or untrue, Doesn't help your Chances at all, In some cases it actually may Hinder your chances, But mostly likely it provides ABSOLUTELY nothing for you, And i hate to be harsh about it, But the way you keep trying to Justify it, makes it sound like It'll help your chances, Which it won't, Not even in the Slightest. Thirdly, The HnS team knowing you doesn't really matter aside from the fact that other people have seen you maybe a bit longer than some of us, Which is fine, But i guess my main point in all of this is Why? Why do you keep pressing things that aren't entirely Relevant to this Application? You're trying to Justify a few Vague responses by saying "People know me", Well, WE as the mod team, Don't really know you from what i'm seeing, we want to hear what YOU bring to the table as opposed to What someone else might bring to the Table, How WELL you can handle situations, Whether you use IRL references or Situations that already happened (Granted you can provide proof for the Situations that actually happened) Basically, What drives you to WANT to do this Job? What makes you want to do Everything a moderator does? What can you Provide, and Deal with, That another Applicant may not be able to do? Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  3. I have to ask since CR is disbanded Entirely, Are you fine with just being Human Resources, Or would you like to Apply for EC aswell? When i get around to cleaning up the PR side of the forums i'll be making a Final decision on this Application, So take your time, But please do get back to me. Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Public Relations Leader, Davoony.
  4. Moved this to the proper Section, And tagging @Pancake Jenkins Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  5. 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!
  6. I'm going to have to agree with JGuary Here when it comes to the Forums section. You're going to need to be more than just Acquainted with the Gmod section of the Forums, As your Position handles with a Majority, if not all, of the Common Areas of the forums. Other than that, you're excellent at handling Situations from what i've seen, And the chats i've had with you have been Enlightening, But i feel like you need more Experience with the Forums as a Whole, Rather than just Gmod. Work on that and you'll likely gain a +1, For now i'm Neutral about it, Just about the only thing i can think of other than that, is your Activity, and that's been addressed it seems, So we'll see how that Improves/Changes. (This is my Experience with him and Not a vote, this is Purely for the Discord Team so they can make out a Better response) Your activity in Discord seems to Mirror that of the Forums, you mostly stay within your Area, Gmod, and Moreso TTT, This is something you'd have to work as, You'd have to Cover more than just those areas, But much like my Forums vote, You're a nice person to be around for the most part, You know how to Handle situations and Given your Admin experiences in TTT, you could apply Some of that to Discord, But alas, you'd need to up your Activity. But for the most part, You'd be a Great addition to both teams given you Work on your Activity, and are able to Address these concerns and Act accordingly, You've been a great Staff member to TTT and i have no Doubts you could do the same here. Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  7. I've talked with Sadbandit for a LONG time now, and my only concern is You've been warned (While not on the forums, it still applies) in other areas Alot in the past, and you've still taken it upon yourself to keep pushing the Limits, Whose to say you won't keep doing it here, Especially as a mod? It's just a concern, you've Improved in recent times but you've said some questionable stuff too. Otherwise, you Help with Applications and Ban appeals, and that's a good start, But for now, I'll roll with Neutral and see how you go in the Following Days/Week Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  8. @Zero @Pancake Jenkins @VilhjalmrF Tagged the 3 people that can Accept and properly deal with your Appeal. Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  9. Right so, i'm just gonna jump into this. Just about The Only concern i had with this application, is how well your Activity would be. But it seems you've gone on record to say that your activity would increase Once you can focus on college again, So at worst, I'll remain skeptical Other than the Activity concern, i've seen, and heard, nothing else that would Warrant me to -1 your Application. You have PLENTY of experience for this, Server Staff across Multiple Servers, Aswell as being a Former member Acceptor from way back. I don't know you all that well, nor have i seen you around that much myself, but from what i have seen, You're way more than qualified to do Either HR, or CR (Though, i'm voting on HR specifically) I've heard nothing but good things about you from Your peers and the Likes, And if they believe you'd be a good fit here i see no reason to Disagree with them. All of them have Made Fair and Valid Points, Which is why i'm being a bit more Lenient on the Activity, It was addressed by all parties, now it's time to see it in Action. Good luck with the App, my Guy, +1 (Disclaimer, I just woke up, i will likely be coming back and Fixing up most of my Statements when i'm more Awake, At the end of the Day, it's still a +1 unless Anyone or Anything comes along and shows me ANYTHING that would prove you aren't fit for Either role) Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Human Resources Davoony.
  10. Since @BraeLyn2212 banned you, I'll go ahead and ping them so that they can Handle this, when they're Around. Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  11. unban appeal

    I will ping @starfoxgods to notify them of this Appeal, Please be Patient! Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  12. @MilkMan @SkydivingSquid @MooTheCow Ban was Perma from Kubnair in 2017, Since hes gone, you guys decide. Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
  13. some thoughts

    For now i will speak on One topic, and One topic Alone, I am tired and Busy with other stuff, so i'll clear atleast one part. Each section of PR manages Different things, you have CR (Conflict Resolution, Deals with Conflicts That aren't Civil or fall within the Rules of Said area, Whether it's Staff or Members, CR has the Ability to intervene if they see Fit to do Such), And then you have EC (Event Coordinators, This one is pretty Self-explanatory, They make Events that, A good portion, If not ALL, of GFL is welcome to come and Participate in) And then you have HR, Which used to handle ONLY member Applications, Now they Not only do that, But give Tour Guides and Answer questions Anyone may have about the Forums, Discords, Any area they seek to Know about, Or wish to know More of, This is something that, EC/CR have no Jurisdiction Over, Unless said person also Applied and Obtained HR alongside CR/EC or Even all Three of the roles that currently Reside within PR. For the First bit of that Message, As far as i can Tell PR has been around for a good Moment, Maybe about a Year, and for a good Portion of that, it's only been HR (member Acceptor), And while You can Argue it falls Under Forums Moderator (The end bit of your Message), Member acceptor has always been a Role different from Forums moderator, Atleast from my Knowledge. In the End, PR is being Updated/Revamped Currently, And a Fully Detailed post on what each Role Can and Can't do, Will come in the Following week if not within a Few days, And i suspect this will Answer alot of the Questions or Topics/Points made Within this Thread/Post, For now, Its mostly trying to bolster it's ranks as Each role needs atleast a good Bit to get it off it's Feet. So as far as I'm concerned, The Jurisdiction should no longer be Confusing, So for Now, I will take my Leave, and Respond to the rest of this Tomorrow. Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Public Resources Davoony.
  14. You wish to be Unbanned yet you Put no actual effort into your Appeal, Might i ask why? Regardless, It seems like you have Absolutely no interest in coming back other than to Repeat the steps that Lead you to this Appeal, So you should take your Time and Evaluate This Appeal (Or, if Denied), Your next appeal, And come back with better Intentions in mind Other than Wanting to get back into a Discord only so you could Repeat this whole process again, Which would likely lead to a Perma-ban that probably won't be Appealed for a good long time. You purposely Ignored the warnings Given by: Bots, Mods, and the TL, You've shown no willingness to Cooperate within Our rules and Guidelines, You don't seem fit to be a Member of the Discords. Neutral, As i'm only here to offer my Opinion to both the Team, and You. Have a Good Day! Sincerely, Discord Moderator Davoony.
  15. Slight Correction, Server managers+ Can unban people, Aswell as, Karma bans also fall under Seniors Responsibility too, Atleast in terms of Accepting the Appeal, So i will also Tag @MooTheCow Have a Nice Day! Sincerely, Forums Moderator Davoony.
