    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!

  6. 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

  8. I want to know how much time you can commit to GFL. If it is more than 24 hours a day, I will give you a +1

  10. She has rules for the competition. These rules should be read and abided by. That is why the votes were removed. She also does not have the rank because she paid for it. She earned her rank like all of us here. Do not repost a topic after it gets hidden as it can lead to restrictions

    I am someone who has always looked up to Joshy, which he does already know. Our opinions on certain matters have tended to align. One opinion which had been brought up in a different topic is that CAs shouldn't be focusing on events. The mentally behind that post I didn't believe in as I believe creating events helps to bring all of the different people within GFL together and helps bring in new members. However I did agree with the idea. One smaller project that I am working on is taking a leap out of the GCC's book. Event coordinators (name unimportant), we have 4/5 people currently within GFL who are exceeding in many ways within GCC. I'm going to be building a team with them and transfer some of that energy into GFL. This project is one of many which does line up with the quote above from Joshy (don't worry this idea isn't fully fleshed out here as it will be a separate post). As my profile "About Me" section does state, "I help within the staff team to put views across which I believe would benefit us all. Have something you want listened to? Talk to me!". Never hesitate to message me if you want your view put across, be it good or bad.

    The bracket for the tournament has now been added! http://challonge.com/GFLOverwatch I have shuffled the seed multiple times and at the moment the bracket is looking very good. No byes needed at the moment. However I am just waiting on @Syntax to Reply to my PM on discord with any other candidates from GCC who had applied. I will be adding any new entrants to the bottom and won't be reshuffling the seed. So you can expect the current standing to be correct.

    I edited your post as I have included your entry to the event. I am just making the challonge bracket and then the sign ups will be closed.

    This was also mentioned within our trusted topic. The trivial tasks are going to be handled using a separate communication method such as discord. Such as our monthly checklist that we have at the moment, which isn't something I would expect people to post on with regular updates. It is primarily our bigger projects which would require more effort and organisation, which up until now has been holding us back.
