  5. aren't you like 4'10

  6. Erik man, I'm really gonna miss you. I am so glad that I got to see you in some of your final moments at the hospital. Rest in power, brother.

  7. Hey bro, sent you a private message to play some stuff since you said you play everything. Found this game "Dead by Daylight" that might be fun for us, hmu sometime!

  8. @Im Sad Differences aside, there is no questioning the work you put into making this happen. I know that you and I definitely didn't agree on everything but this couldn't have happened without you in your time as manager. @Ned @roux and @Gator I'm very pleased to have worked alongside you guys, in some capacity, to get the plugin(s) made. Countless hours were spent with you guys brainstorming ideas, working on development, and having discussions about the direction of the server. TTT would not be where it's at without the work you all have put in. @Trazz and @Greggy G You guys were the last managers I had the pleasure of working with before I stepped off of TTT. While I don't know if this plugin is actually the same one or a new one built from the ground up, the outcome seems all the same. Along with the guys I mentioned before, I spent the most time sitting in a channel with you guys hammering down the best way to get this thing done and pushed out to the public. The dedication you both have to the server is extremely admirable. I'm very glad to see that even through all of the many, many setbacks, you guys were able to finish the project. @crazedkangaroo I never personally worked with you on TTT but I'd feel wrong if I didn't include you in this. I've seen the work you put in and am glad that you were able to be part of this project. You've set some high standards in all the positions you held. All this being said, thank you to each and every one of you for the work you put in. I'd also like to thank all CAs and any SAs that were part of these discussions. You guys were key in a lot of the testing phases on the original plugin. It doesn't go unappreciated. Hoping to pop on the server sometime and see how it turned out. As a closing remark: Long live TTT, thank you guys.
  9. Instead of constantly crying for the old karma system to come back, which has been shot down for good reasons before, come up with something original please. You guys can’t have one or the other and also solve all your problems. Whether anyone admits it or not, you don’t want the old karma system, you just want some type of ranking system that displays progression. Karma is not meant to be a ranking system. Stop trying to make it one, thanks.
  10. Event starts in an hour. Make sure to be in discord at 7!
  11. @Black Rain you know what it be
  12. We'll be doing some raiding on the final weekend of the event since raiding is only allowed on weekends. Also, I want to mention that there is a 12 person tribe limit so anyone wishing to participate should show up on the first day. I'll do some periodic checks on who's in the tribe and who is actually participating in the event so we make room if need be.
  13. Huge thanks to @BoM for this incredible banner! Ark: The Last Stand As a man or woman stranded naked, freezing and starving on the shores of a mysterious island called ARK, you must hunt, harvest resources, craft items, grow crops, research technologies, and build shelters to withstand the elements. Use your cunning and resources to kill or tame & breed the leviathan dinosaurs and other primeval creatures roaming the land, and team up with or prey on hundreds of other players to survive, dominate... and escape! The goal of the event is to defeat as many bosses before it ends. I'll be creating a tribe that everyone participating will join and we'll grow as much as we can within 2 weeks. This includes building a massive base, taming/breeding high-end dinos, defeating the bosses, and at the end of it all, doing some raids. Since this won't be on an SG server I feel it's necessary to say you're expected to follow all server rules. In general, just don't troll. f you're asked to not do something, don't do it. I'll post a spoiler below with all of the server rules in case anyone wants to read through them but don't feel obligated to. I'll give a general rundown at the start of the event. Server Rules: When? May 1st @7:00pm EST - May 17th Where? island.bloody-ark.com:27020 (The Island) While you're here, join our Steam Group!
  14. That's more or less what I was suggesting by the "asking for it" part of my post.
  15. I have some varying opinions on this change and I'd like to respond to a few things being brought up in the thread. The main thing I'd like to start with, as it ties into my overall opinion on these changes as a whole, is that these ranks are meant for recognition. I see quite a few people mentioning a lack of trust when it comes to the decision for Veterans not having admin powers. While I understand that the people split from LG may be upset about this change, I think it's best to look at it from an outside perspective. Of course, most server managers or longtime admins are trusted to administrate the servers. On the other hand, you stepped down. While you may be trusted with admin, Veteran (or previously LG) is not a rank for people to step down into and become lifetime SAs. As much as some people would like to push the admin powers thing, I don't see a need for them. If you intend to stick around and/or play on the servers you should be stepping down to a lower rank, not stepping down completely. If you stepped down previously and decide to come back and play on the servers actively again, you can apply for admin. That's really all there is to it in my eyes. I don't think this decision had anything to do with trust but with what the rank is for as a whole. As for the argument behind Veteran being a "glorified HG", minus the negative connotation, that's exactly what it is. I think that's literally the entire point of a middle-tier recognition rank. If you get rid of the extra powers Legend has (which I'll cover next), it's a glorified Veteran. That's the point of roles built around praise or recognition for the amount of work you did. Elevation from one role to the next based on how much you did is literally what makes these ranks, I don't think that's really something to use as a negative in this case. At the end of the day, these ranks are here to recognize people for their contributions to the community, not reward them with extra perks. To be blunt, anyone asking for more than that just sounds entitled. We shouldn't be dedicating ourselves to the community for extra perks when we're ready to step down. We should be dedicating ourselves to the community because we love it and we want to make it a better one. This leads me to my own suggestion, which I can see being somewhat controversial. On the flip side of giving Veteran's admin powers, I don't think any of these ranks should have them. It undermines the entire point of them. These are ranks meant to give praise to our staff members and honorable regulars that did their share to better the community. While I understand the desire for rewarding some of these people past a title and name color, I don't think it's necessary. I honestly believe that we should separate these ranks from admin completely. If a Veteran wants to come back and admin the servers they should be able to do so but they should also have to apply for an admin rank (or ask for it). The same goes for an Honorable Gamer or Legend just the same. This would give people the recognition they deserve, while at the same time, allowing people the opportunity to administrate the servers if they plan to still come around from time to time. Legends having access to the CA section is really something I can see swinging either way. While I stick by my previous statement for server related powers, I think it's fair to say that anyone that's done enough to deserve Legend is worthy of having a voice in that section. The rank is made up of some of the most dedicated and hardworking individuals in the community's history. Suffice to say, their input is valued and appreciated. I can't completely relate to all of you guys. I want to look at these changes objectively and see that we make the best of it. Obviously some of you have had the rank for some time. It comes as no surprise that you'd feel like you got the short end of the stick. To that end, I'm sure the Board made this decision with the community's best interest in mind. As Prez said before, these things get put out knowing there will be additional feedback. I very much doubt these ranks will be exactly as they are now if we look on it in a month.
