  1. Hello everyone. This month we have two recipients of this prestigious award. They're both team leads so technically they would not be eligible for the award but we have made exceptions in the past and they both definitely deserve it. Let me start it off by talking about how much this first gentleman has been working to get Zombie Escape alive and going again. He isn't doing it alone but he's the main driving force. Ever since his promotion we've seen a steady population on Zombie Escape because of his events, server updates, seeding, and ability to get everyone together to help revive the server. Please join me in congratulating @thuxys for achieving Staff of the Month! Now, onto the next recipient. This guy went out of his way to make us a new Discord bot for private channels and has been working hard on the recent Minecraft MGTs. He has been a spectacular leader for his team alongside his counterpart and never stops looking for new ways to improve the team or events for the community. He's an all around positive guy and a pleasure to talk to. Please join me in congratulating @Acer for achieving Staff of the Month!
  2. Wow, great idea! Now if only more people submitted clips instead of the same 4 people.
  3. Hello everyone. Today we are going to be showing our appreciation for a guy who has stayed around the community through thick and thin. It is a pleasure to have him around and read all of his new posts behind the scenes. He makes spectacular posts at a CA level and puts in a ridiculous amount of effort. His suggestions and ideas may not always come to fruition but it shows that he cares enough to put aside his own time and bring new ideas to the table. Please join me in congratulating @Phoenix_ for achieving Staff of the Month!

    i hope you're happy with my submissions
  5. Alright alright I know it's nearly August and I am just now getting around to announcing Staff of the Month June but I was real busy. I feel really bad but I hope this gentleman understands. This guy helped adding a new Anti Cheat plugin, built a new plugin for Jail Break, and has been editing plugins non stop. He's an absolute legend. I think he's probably gotten Staff of the Month 9 times? Maybe 12? If it were up to me he would be getting it every month. Please join me in congratulating @BoTofor achieving Staff of the Month!
  6. 6/23/2021 Created Media Events subforum under the Events forum. Monthly Art Contest and Clip of the Month will be posted here from now on. Past events will be posted in their respective categories. Moved Arts & Craft subforum to under General. Removed Monthly Art Contest subforum from Arts & Craft.
  7. Hello everyone, Little bit late but it's better than never! For the month of May we are giving Staff of the Month to a person who has been non stop grinding since he joined the Events Team and even more so as a Community Advisor. If you look up the word "hustle" in a dictionary, he is pictured there. He puts out amazing events and always participates in discussions and brings up great ideas. Please join me in congratulating @BloodBladesfor achieving Staff of the Month!

    can you look at my ban appeal?:banana:

  9. Hello everyone, For this month we are going to shine a light on a staff member who many of you may not know. This gentlemen has been helping out a ton lately with plugins for the Surf server in particular. After a year of waiting, we finally have a system that gives you a line to follow based on the server record bot. It's like a racing line in racing games. It was awesome to see him drop it on us randomly in the Surf chat and we are all appreciative of him. It's always nice to see him asking what he could help with. Please join me in congratulating @Nano. for achieving Staff of the Month! This next gentleman has been carrying the Internal Affairs team this month and has been knocking it out of the park for a rookie. While he may technically not be eligible for Staff of the Month due to his managerial position, he is eligible for it for all of the amazing work he has done as an Internal Affairs Officer. He might have had a small hiccup within his first week but he sure has grown into the role and has been displaying leadership skills. Please join me in congratulating @Hawksfor achieving Staff of the Month!
  10. I really didn't want to respond to this thread nor did any other BD but I'll bite. We have exhausted our efforts with ZE. We have tried absolutely everything and talks of shutting the server down come up frequently but are eventually shot down by us because we think we can make something out of the server. You talk about bringing up quality management but the last team we had was absolutely stellar. Paralyzed, Maniac, and Takuto did everything they possibly could. They dedicated hundreds of hours (no joke, actually hundreds) to no avail. You couldn't ask for a better team. Para came out of retirement, Takuto is an extremely determined individual, and Maniac is absolutely charismatic. Mix that with help from BoTo and Cept and it is an amazing combo. Throw that team onto any other server and it would be #1. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that if these guys couldn't do it with the amount of time they sacrificed, who could? We don't have many staff members interested in managing ZE because they know what that would bring on. When the whole fiasco with those kind individuals who threatened Maniac and I went down, we originally thought of shutting the server down but no. We wanted to give it one more go. Almost a year later and hundreds of hours of work, here we are. Again, a month or two ago shutting down the server was brought up but it wouldn't hurt if we kept it up. Maniac and the team have held meetings in the past but they're mainly only attended by staff. We had Kuri who tried his darndest to get the server popping as well. We have had SO MANY CAs that were also interested in the cause. Anyways, this thread and my response or any response from any BD, LSM, or SM on the server is the same as it ever was. It's the same cycle over and over again and it's well documented in a lot of places.

    Happy birthday buddy

  12. Hello everyone, Right off the bat we're going to start off with our first recipient. This guy is on 4 different teams and he has always been able to bring excellent ideas to the table. He might be a bit schizophrenic but that is okay because if anything, it helps him out. He has not been a CA for that long but he sure has done a whole lot in the little amount of time that he has been on the team. One great thing that I admire about him is his passion for our Squad servers. I love seeing him work alongside Silentguns to get the server going again. Whether it be seeding, advertising our server, or making discussion posts, this dude does it all. Please join me in congratulating @Nate. for achieving Staff of the Month! We aren't done yet. We still have another awesome person to give this award to. This particular guy probably has the most amount of time on the Events Team. Don't quote me on that but it sure feels like he has been going strong in that team for a long time. Previously a manager of that team but now he puts out amazing non-CSGO events that do well. He is also very active on our stream team and you can always catch him streaming on our Twitch channel. He has been nothing short of extraordinary ever since he became staff again. Please join me in congratulating @Strayyzfor achieving Staff of the Month!
