  1. Can’t wait to see where this takes the community! Awesome work guys!
  2. This looks really cool... so who's doing the giveaway for it?

  4. Update: I'm now missing 4 teeth, lovely. It honestly didn't hurt and I recovered in pretty much 1-2 days. I ate a lot of mashed potatoes... a lot. But now I'm eating whole foods :)

    Thanks to the people who commented before with all the suggestions! Much appreciated 😁

  5. This may just be me but comparing what you said to the actual truth kind of rubs me the wrong way. I know you want your application to look good and that’s fine. However, I’d truly rather you not emphasize how active you are when you haven’t been in the community longer than a month. Right now I’m -1 because I don’t believe you have the experience to be a moderator.
  6. Thanks you for the suggestion @Epic From Epic Games! I partially agree with the 1st point. Survival and SkyBlock aren’t exactly the most popular gamemodes. We are looking into making the best changes for both servers that we can. I can’t exactly say what is happening under the hood but there are going to be big changes soon. Once the staff structure is more stable expect another response from the new manager!
  7. Are there any plans to move to HTTP/2? Also, there are many optimization issues with the website... I could send you a PM if that'd be easier.

      HTTP2 should now be enabled for this site, ill enable it on sourcebans (and other sites on that machine) in a bit.

      @Ralseithank yoyuo umy ddueeeeeeee

      @Ralsei Appreciate it.

      @Roy It's a bit of both. I don't exactly have the time currently to describe everything but I'll message you soon.

  8. Welcome back @Nick can't wait to see what you have planned! Also, welcome @Dreae!
  9. Damn, alright. Do you guys use any of those hair brushes?
  10. Huh, that sounds pretty interesting. I’ll definely look into that. They’re pretty big dogs too so the vacuum won’t scare them.
  11. Hello animal owners or people who are curious. So, I own two German shepherds and as you can imagine they shed... a lot. I get that it's getting warmer so they're shedding their coats but their hair goes everywhere. Now, my question is what are the best methods of dealing with dog hair? Obviously, I could google this but I don't really feel like sifting through advertisements for products that probably don't work. Amazon links or pictures would be most helpful since some products might not be available where I live. Here are a few pictures of them Thanks, Skittlez.
  12. Help

    Okay so the HP ProBook 4440s is a notebook laptop. Typically, notebook laptops do not have much power because they're not intended for processes do not require immense resources (ex. internet explorer, email, some small games like solitaire). The largest bottleneck for this laptop is the CPU, which is an Intel Core i3-2370M. This processor only has two cores and 4 threads respectively. Unfortunately, Garry's Mod is a CPU intensive game so this is where you will struggle the most. Personally, I have an i7-6700K which has 4 cores and 8 threads. So, I dedicate 2 cores to Garry's Mod because if I don't it'll run like garbage. Obviously, you can't do that (Well, you can but your computer will crash d: ). It also doesn't help that your laptop has no form of a graphics card so all the load is put onto your CPU. Truly, other than the tips @Le Quack posted, your only option is to upgrade. With how poorly GMod is optimized it just can't run at high FPS on your laptop. And yeah, if you have a ton of addons I'd recommend disabling them all when you launch the game. When your game launches open the Addons tab and then under Subscribed click Disable All. I know that buying a new laptop/desktop is probably not an option for you but I hope this helps you understand why your game is running poorly. If you ever have any computer issues (not launching, crashing, etc.) feel free to send me a PM and I'll do whatever I can to help you. It's best if you message me on discord though, I see those messages faster Skittlez#0001 Thanks, Skittlez.
  13. I am so close to spring break, I'm tempted to just skip class tomorrow... 

    1. Korowa


      Don't do it

    2. Skittlez


      @Korowa I went, I didn’t like it but I went

    3. Korowa


      That's good! Skipping is bad

  14. If this was in the US I would have gone!
