What is GFL's origin story and how did GFL became what it is today?

Recommended Posts

Posted  Edited by Mad_Father

I want to take a different approach today on my random questions on the general section of the forum.

 

What is GFL's origin story and how did GFL became what it is today?

Now this is the question that people cannot BS on, and I am genuinely interested on GFL's background story and its achievements and issues.

Not to mention that I love good stories.

 

So, can someone tell me the origin story of Game For Life Clan?

(Also using this thread to tell other players who also doesn't know about GFL's origin and its past)

 

I do not care if your post is long, BUT I do care if you give shit replies to this thread.

quality > quantity

Roy started GFL back in 2011 (I think) and their first server was CSS (I don't recall which server). He was such a young and adorable child. 

 

  • Moderator position on forum was not used until 2015 even though the rank was there
  • Had minecraft three times
  • used to have arma 3
  • used to have bf3
  • used to have kf2
  • used to have rust [current times]
  • perm banned our most trusted people who betrayed the community
  • has 3 steam groups [2011] [2012] [2013]
  • this is gfl's 3rd forum
  • councils were strict then relaxed, strict, relaxed... over and overs
  • servers used to be populated 24/7

 

As to why it's called Games For Life is because it literally means what it means. If you enjoy gaming and love it like it's your life. Then that's the name. But unknowingly, Games For Life is also another company's name to teach children how to play games. 

 

 

I'm not going to add too much details because I don't want to make false accusations.

I don't.

This is literally just 10% of the origin.

Because I used to date a co-owner whose perm banned on here. He would tell me things of how GFL was like back in the day and I've also talk to Floopy and Roy about it.

Oh, this is from what I've heard. They used to have a council name Echo. He was very strict. Any false mistakes, you're a goner. But one day, the councils were somewhat relaxed, as if there's nothing to do. So they're more nice. But then, one of our council was demoted for abuse. It was not Echo, since Echo left a long time ago.  So eventually, we had about 3 councils left. Then another left because he is moving on with his life. Then it became 2 councils left, that was when Roy decided Council should be removed. Because they were given too many work and not enough time to do it. Councils was removed, but division leader was created. Then division leaders became too powerful, so they recreated Council. Right now they're nice in a way.

Division Leader watches over the game they're division leader of, correct?

Council watches over them and the community as a whole.

Technician Admins is what it means. They're the Tech of GFL. Things like Developers pretty much or any problems within GFL community overall. Setup is the security of GFL. Denros does the backend of GFL forums, sometimes servers, and sometimes teamspeak. Head-Banana does the developing and creation of coding.

 

 

 

Oh, if you're admin, there's a thread in the admin section explaining each and every one of the higher ranks and what they're job is and will be.

It's simple. One Council is too relaxed and the replacement is like. They were to relaxed. Let's be more strict. Then they get replaced and the next is relaxed then strict then....


I may give you stage 7 cancer

December 10th, 1999. Computers we're not that advanced and Roy was a wee-lad. He has an interest in computers and coding, even though he didn't really know what that was... He sat on his father's lap and said, "Daddy, I want to make a popular gaming community and I want to learn how to code dank plugins n' shit." His father said, "Shut up, son. You just turned 2 and planning your life, god dammit, slow down." Roy was very upset. He wanted to become the best! As he grew older, computers became more advanced. Suiting his needs. When he turned 13, he was playing the best game ever created, Minecraft, while he was playing he found diamonds and exclaimed, "I'm going to be playing games for the rest of my life!" That's when he knew, he was going to start a gaming community named, "Games For Life". 

 

I'm pretty sure that's how most of it went. :lenny:

To be fair, you should really know the basics of what each rank do seeing as you're an admin but no worries, people are here to help. The ranks are going somewhat under a change hence why you've seen new ranks like Technical Admin and the Moderator rank changed to Community Adviser but an announcement will be made on that soon, hopefully. 

 

The Council are the guys who deal with most of the communication in GFL whether it's from inside or outside of GFL, such as sponsors/partners etc. They're there to lead the community in the right direction, promoting community growth, basic (I think) website maintenance and genuinely leading the community as a whole. Just imagine them as a Board of Directors in a business and what they have to do to keep a business alive, excluding the whole making money part.

 

 Division Leaders, such as myself, are responsible for the oversight of a single game and all of its servers. We have 4 games, or divisions, that the Division Leaders are responsible for. I am responsible for overseeing the TF2 servers that we have. We would aid our Managers in running the servers, appoint/demote/training Managers, bug fix and just supervise the Division and its staff. There are other things we do as well but that's the basic gist. 

 

The rank Community Adviser was originally the old Moderator rank. It still somewhat is but with a twist. They're there to give an unbiased opinion on matters held within GFL, throw some advise around here and there and be the guys that stops the Higher Ups from making bad decisions. 

 

Technical Administrators are the guys that run the show behind the scenes. They deal with GFL-Core and all plugins associated with it, Website programming/bug fixing, patching large issues that need to be solved quickly and the likes of that. They're our trusted developers who usually have a a lot more access then normal developers.

And as @Bae rightly pointed out, it's there and pinned so everyone who is Admin+ can see it. Not everything has been implemented yet but hopefully it will be soon.

Sounds legit.

 

GFL's had a somewhat long and rocky history. The previous website once had a history of GFL, talking about what GFL had gone through up to early 2016.

 

Then, as Bae said, there was betrayal. Issues aside, we're building up from scratch again.

Here it is. Bae mentioned Floopy being an OG, so if said person is not loaded down with work, or the pretending thereof, you could always ask them.

 

I've been here about a year, and it's been a damn interesting ride so far.
