looking back on this... sepi was either trolling extremely hard, or is bi-polar.

i think maybe a really good job of trolling

I think tk lacks lacks intellect, or is very angry, or is very drunk. My guess is all 3.

tk

Both those things you posted are from usa-archer
He was posting a lot about that here at around the same time he posted those.

Then he just kinda stopped talking shit and went away, so I guess he couldn't make it work.

damn, what was that whole weird tk/sepi exchange haha

No doubt the server doesn't NEED another admin.. but I always felt like I was the go-to for most basic issues.. Just a face always willing to drop everything to either fix the issue or figure out how to fix it. People seemed to appreciate that. Always logged on as admin so people recognized it.

That's all giving me admin would be... Just another tool in the tool box that served a slightly different purpose.
that does make some sense, thanks for giving your stance on it  :thumbsup:

Again I appreciate the support everybody. I'm not 100% sure why ily is pushing it so hard. I think I would have been more beneficial a year or two ago. I think I could have assisted in maintaining users. It's a lot more difficult to rebuild than maintain.

I know you and others don't seem to agree with it but I look at t admin as a job. If it's not my responsibility I don't take the initiative. So I haven't really been taking any steps to build or maintain the user base.
I brought up firewall hole punching to fix our hosting issue a year or so ago and nothing has been done about that. I don't see how giving me admin would further that progress at all. And if we can't get a decent fix to hosting spending the time and energy to rebuild the community seems a little bit pointless anyway
i agree with you there, without the server being actively updated/improved there's not much point in trying to recruit/retain new players. the new generations of players expect everything to work perfectly out of the box and as time passes fewer & fewer people will be willing to jump through the hoops required just to log on & play. i wish i could contribute in this area but it's just beyond my expertise, iL is the only real sysadmin among all the admins so without his involvement there's not much the rest of us can do to implement server improvements. :(

So.. The question is: is he willing to give you sysadmin so we can get the ball rolling on any of these updates (assuming you are comfortable with that)

And if he isnt willing.. Can we agree as a community that it's time to switch to a server with more support (yours)

... Or do we just accept its dying a slow death that is out of our control

As far as some of them out of your expertise.. Im sure we could find reputable people willing to write the script.. I feel like there are a few willing to donate to the cost .. But we would need to feel comfortable about the price, the capabilities of the person we hire for it, and its guarantee it will be implemented ..

I would have been looking for someone capable to write the script already, but I never got the impression iL was going to trust the source and implement it.. I don't see why we can't hire a professional. It can't be crazy expensive I wouldn't think

It's mostly forgotten now but on the old forum his signature move was the forum meltdown.  He would post 4 times in a row all the time, each post more riled up than the last, working himself up into a froth.  People would read the posts and comment, "Nice meltdown"

In my opinion if an admin were to have a meltdown it would almost definitely involve going on a ban and a kick spree. F****** up everything they possibly could on their way out. I just got tired of some b******* and ask to be removed.

It was recently brought to my attention that il was under the impression I deleted some Forum posts before I left. I have zero recollection of that. Is he confusing me with somebody else or is there something I'm just not remembering?

I remember you had a meltdown about Burnt splitting your thread but I don't remember you deleting a lot of posts... deleting every IP from the ban list, yes, but deleting a bunch of posts I don't remember...

It wasn't about you, it was about forum moderation in general.  tk was against it and got mad whenever I moved a non-game related thread from server.war2.ru to General discussion
