  1. Given that the forum is no longer chiefly used for introductions, I might as well change the name. EDIT: I also added a description to the Off-Topic & Random Questions forum to clarify its difference from the rest of General Discussion.
  2. tournament

    Shuruia#2405 The name of the person above me defines the competition. EU
  3. Thank you for your application. Unfortunately on this occasion your member application has been denied. Reason: Your rank being set as player was deliberate.
  4. This will also be used as a changelog. 15/01/17 Added @bobe
  5. Listen up, my loyal children. The TS3 admin application process is too slow for it to be an efficient method of assembling a team of TS3 admins. This isn't to say that we are in desperate need of TS3 admins, but it is to be noted that a handful of people are fed up with their applications remaining open for a couple of months at the most. Henceforth, all TS3 admins will be hand-picked by the Board of Directors. In addition, CA+ may opt to recommend suitable individuals to us for the purpose of significantly increasing said individuals' chances of being considered for acceptance. The overall process retains similarities in that the Board of Directors will still finalise the decisions, with a handful of prospecting individuals going through the community advisors first. The main difference is the lack of an application process in-between, thus allowing for faster additions. As a penultimate note, I am posting this in the General Discussion section so that non-server admins are aware of this post. My intent with this decision is linked to the fact that it is possible for non-server admins to become TS3 admins under uncommon circumstances. The keyword here is "uncommon", as the rank of server admin is a milestone of trust that makes it easier for one to assume other positions that would also require a degree of trust. Trust, however, is a commodity that is not monopolised by server admins.
  6. I think old timers in GFL know what my vote is going to...
  7. I have to agree with Jamal here. Cops have little to no reason for warranting someone if prop laws are not in effect.
  8. If you ever feel inadequate at playing Overwatch, keep in mind that this sad little piece of biological debris exists:

     

  9. Been an INTP for many years now.
  10. Some of you may have noticed that @Roy has been absent for the past couple of days. The reason for this is that his PC has fallen under the dreadfully harrowing curse of hardware failure. I can spare no details on when Roy shall return, thus leaving this message as merely a disclosure of Roy's present situation. Of course, the absence of Roy means that the burden of writing announcement posts for noteworthy events must fall to someone equally as charming and charismatic. I'm not one to shirk the onus of destiny, so without further delay... CS:GO Technical Administrator: @Dano will remain as the sole CS:GO division leader for the foreseeable future. However, this does not mean that he is doomed to handle the technical affairs of the division by himself. As of today, @Ariistuujj has been designated as our latest technical administrator. The rank itself was originally introduced in a broader sense, although Arii's focus will be on CS:GO. Please keep in mind that the duties of a technical administrator are (as the name implies) that of the technical aspects of division management; do not bother Arii with communal issues that should rather be addressed to a division leader. Battle of the Communities: A representative of http://www.edge-gamers.com/ contacted us on the 4th of August in an effort to introduce GFL into a pool of communities for participation in an event they call "Battle of the Communities". If the name isn't enough indication, this is a tournament that promotes friendly competition between various communities. More specifically, the chosen participants will play matches that are held within a 5v5 CS:GO setting. The tournament is typically held at the end of October or the beginning of November. As we have accepted the invitation, we shall promptly need to form a team with which to compete. Please contact @Dano if you are interested in the prospect. View full article
  11. Locked. (I don't look at the reports section 24/7; be gentle with me.)
  12. Can't presently implement this due to IPS limitations.
  13. Locking this since it seems the admins are denying your appeal.
  14. We're okay, I guess.
  15. A woman who was once important to me told me that true clinical depression is something that you're likely to keep for the rest of your life. It is akin to other disorders such as autism and schizophrenia in that you shouldn't count on permanently ridding yourself of it. Your best bet is to make changes to how you live your life in order to circumvent some of the negative consequences of such disorders. It's up to you to identify said "negative consequences" since depression spurs different actions in different people.
  16. admin application

    I did tell you to contact the manager. Don't use a public forum for a ZS admin application...
  17. You have been accepted. Message me if you have any questions or issues.
  18. An example of a real Valve representative: https://steamcommunity.com/id/greuben
  19. http://steamcommunity.com/id/eram Not a spokesperson for Valve, so you should still take whatever this fellow says with a pinch of salt.
  20. Hello, fetchers. We are henceforth promoting @MrManslayerX as the second CS:S division leader. It may seem odd that we would even need a second division leader for CS:S, given the circumstances that the division is under. However, this is not a matter of what we strictly need, but rather a matter of fulfilling untapped potential. @Thomasdavid097 is sufficient to simply maintain the division, but the addition of a second division leader means that expansion within the division will be a much smoother process. It would also be prudent of me to note that our TS3 server has a new rule page. @SkittlezExZ wrote a rule page that @Dano and I edited in order to create a detailed guide to the rules (and the related punishments) that exist within our TS3 server. It also briefly details the purpose of several ranks within GFL, as well as providing some helpful links. The TS3 rules have always been available in the description of the lobby. View full article

  25. It's for a game that isn't part of one of our divisions, so I'll overlook this. Just be aware that we deal with hackers harshly in this community. Expect any bans that you receive for hacking to be truly permanent.
