1) General Discussion / Happy Ramadan
« on: May 17, 2018, 11:22:03 AM »
Ramadan Kareem war2ru,

Brief explanation of Ramadan,

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Muslim lunar calendar. Healthy adult Muslims fast in Ramadan from dawn until dusk. This includes abstaining from drinking, eating, immoral acts and anger. Other acts of worship such as prayer, reading the Quran and charity are also encouraged during Ramadan.

Muslims also believe that the Quran was revealed in Ramadan.

During the holy month, Muslims wake up early to eat a pre-dawn meal called suhoor, and break their fast with a meal referred to as iftar.

It is common for mosques to host large iftars, especially for the poor and needy. Nightly prayers called Tarawih are also held in mosques after iftar.

Different cultures have different traditions during Ramadan, whether it is a special food they must cook, or eating iftar with the extended family.

When is Ramadan?
Ramadan begins today May 17, 2018.
Since Ramadan is part of a lunar calendar, its date annually changes on the Gregorian calendar. Muslims tend to wait for the new month's moon to appear before they announce the first day of Ramadan. However, they can still estimate the day beforehand.

Why do Muslims fast during Ramadan?

Fasting during Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam. There are also verses in the Quran that prescribes fasting for all Muslims who are mature and healthy enough to fast for the full day.  Muslims fast as an act of worship and for a chance to get closer to God. And as a way to become more compassionate to those in need.

Fasting is also seen as a way to learn patience and break bad habits.

When does Ramadan end?

Based on the astronomical charts, Ramadan ends on the evening of June 14.

The first day of the next month, Shawwal, is expected to be on June 15, once again subject to confirmation after an official sighting of the new moon.

The first day of the next Islamic month Shawwal is also the date of Eid al-Fitr, the festival of breaking the fast.

3) General Discussion / Is capitalism good or bad?
« on: May 06, 2018, 11:42:03 AM »
Capitalism shows that people that are more skilled get more recognition for it, for example, a doctor makes more than a cashier. It's the same as saying that when you were in school, you did the entire project and worked hard on it, and the person next to you didn't and they got the same score. You should get a higher score because you did better, in communism this doesn't work. Communism doesn't work because one, if you don't own it, why should you maintain it? And socialism doesn't work because it takes money people earned and gives it to the poor that did nothing to earn it.
Capitalism is fair. Would it be fair that everyone earns the same amount of money, but one works harder? No, right? Even if a country would be ruled by communism, there still will be poor and rich. It will always be this way. Therefore it can be said that capitalism is better than communism

All the arguments against capitalism are either targeted at crony capitalism, facilitated by big government, or against the unchangeable nature of the world and humanity. The rest are just completely nonsensical. People will complain about rich people controlling the government. This is true: men with big pockets will try to take advantage of government for their own ends. However, this can only happen when government is big enough. A small government which only serves to enforce the law and defend national security is less capable of being corrupted. However, powerful government organs, like the IRS and the Fed (un-democratic and unelected) open the door for cronyism, as do powerful elected officials with lots of power. Complaining about inequality is to complain about human nature itself. There will always be inequality as long as two people are left on the planet.

4) General Discussion / Is communism good or bad?
« on: April 25, 2018, 12:55:19 AM »
Communism is a utopian philosophy, so in theory it is really quite good.  The ultimate goal of communism is to have a society where all resources are shared equally based on need, property is all owned collectively, there is no state, and work is done based on personal desire rather than economic need.  To read Marx and Engels it is difficult to imagine a person that would not want to live in the world they describe as the end Communist state. 
It seems that in reality the problem with Communism is that in order to get to the utopic end we must first pass through a time where the state has incredible authority and control (in theory this is necessary in order to set the foundation for the dissolution of private property and the state itself).  So far, no state has actually acheived Marx's described communism because no government has been able or willing to give up that control and power that is required during the interloping period; subsequently, rather than having ever seen a communist society we have only witnessed socialist authoritarian regimes that pass themselves off as communist, which in practice seems to have been an undesirable state of affairs for many.

5) Server.War2.ru / Warcraft 2 Ru's Policy on harassment
« on: March 07, 2018, 06:16:36 PM »

In general, social behavior on the server is dealt with at the user-level.  When encountering unwanted messages from others, a user may choose to simply not listen, use the /squelch command, use the /dnd command, or ban the offending user from their games as necessary. 

However, occasionally harassment may arise, at which point administrators will step in.  Harassment will be considered to have taken place when a user makes a routine of bothering another user across multiple gaming sessions, and does in a persistent manner such that usual responses, such as typing /squelch once time each log-in session, fail to adequately handle the issue.

When a user is committing harassment, they will be warned by administrators, and failure to correct their behavior will lead to a ban.

9) Server.War2.ru / I resign as administrator of Warcraft 2
« on: November 04, 2017, 10:57:40 PM »
I am officially resigning as war2 admin as of today effective immediately.

I joined the admin team about 2 years ago in the winter of 2015. I became admin in order to help grow the server community due to its dwindling numbers. It's been a good and fun ride these past 2 years however due to differences with the current admin team and player base I believe the time has come for me to resign.

The current admin team consists of IL, Blid, mousetopher, and myself.

IL- Il is the one who created this server. He is the one who has released all the patches and bug fixes up to this point. He is decent guy however he is extremely busy and has been unable release any patches of fixes in the past 2 years. I have pmed Il on multiple occasions asking him to let me hire a programmer to help him get things fixed more quickly. He has refused all my inquires and has been unwilling to hire outside help.

Blid- Blid is the longest tenured admin on the server. Many admins have gone MIA and disappeared but Blid has never done that. In 2015 I msged Blid and let him know how I felt about the state of the server. I requested he help me host monthly GOW tournaments to help boost the player base. Shortly afterwards he told me I should become admin which I accepted. Since becoming and serving as admin for 2 years it has been made plain that Blid is part of what is wrong with war2.

Blid insists on smurfing every time he logs on the server and refuses to ever play on his actual name. The guy never hosts games for the community and never talks to anyone on the actual server. In the past 2 years since I have become admin his contributions have been extremely minimal and have done virtually nothing help the player base. His main contribution and the reason he remains as admin is because he is "smart, mature, and responsible." Unfortunately intelligence isn't enough of a contribution to remain in such a high position for such a long time. Blid essentially has the ability to veto any decision I or anyone else makes without consultation from the community.
Example: Recently Ripe[Eur0] posted some garbage in the general section about attacking immigrants in Finland. Blid perma banned him over it and refused to lift the ban despite Ripe apologizing for it and saying he wasn't thinking clearly and he didn't mean it.   

There are other examples as well but the bottom line is i'm currently not getting along with the admin team.
It makes no sense for me to be working with people who have limited vision for the future, do basically nothing, and yet insist their way is the right way.

Mouetopher- I like mousey she has made great contributions and her positives far outweigh her negatives. Which is why I will refrain from saying anything ill of her.

The player base- The war2 player base is extremely loyal to the game. It takes a certain kind of person to continue to play the same game for over 20 years. The player base is are very passionate about the game however they are highly flawed in many areas. The majority of the player base is unwilling to play with newer players. They scream they want war2 to be the way it was back in the early 2000s however they refuse to sacrifice their own entertainment to achieve that goal.

Bottom line is I joined this admin team to try and increase the player base and improve the server. To an extent I do believe I achieved that goal, however the current vision for the future of the server is differing from my own. Which is why I am now resigning from my current role as administrator of warcraft 2.

10) Server.War2.ru / Any old replays played on "Faster?"
« on: October 24, 2017, 11:59:50 AM »
Hey i'm looking for some replays played on faster or lower. If anyone has some game replays of human players on the slower speeds that would be great to.

I rarely come across any games slower than EF.  :D

12) General Discussion / Christopher Columbus and Columbus day
« on: October 10, 2017, 08:55:31 AM »
Yesterday was Columbus day, around my city there was a big parade celebrating Christopher Columbus's discovery of America. While this parade was happening there was a protest against the celebration of Columbus day which was orchestrated by the Native American community.

This did leave me to think, should we all really be celebrating Columbus day? Cause when you think about it how could Columbus have discovered a country where there were already people living.
