wtf its only been like a couple hours since the last on topic post, THERE'S STILL A CHANCE TO SAVE IT !
(i am enjoying the lion king vids though )
Wtf i made topic long time ago how to make ladder/blizzard mapno i just didn't see it omg
Are u blind?
Who's account did I delete? I never even had global admin on here.equinox i think (it was done at his request, not trying to imply you were deleting content or users out of spite or anything)
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)i mean sysadmin in terms of the role he fills, not in terms of access. the rest of us don't have the knowledge to do the things that iL does.
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
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 thinkpvpgn is very easy to set up, any developer could create a test server to implement a proof of concept for a fix & then i'm sure iL would be on board with working with them to somehow integrate it into the main server. war2.me is also completely available to anyone who wants to use it for such a purpose, though it's using a much out of date version of pvpgn that would need to be updated anyway for best results so again probably easier to just set up a new dev server.
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?yeah it was you, it was done by deleting a forum account which deletes all its associated posts.
That will be your signature move: organizing threads on a forum with 15 active users.. That are really only active when myself, or someone like myself start to stir the pot. Otherwise there's not much taking place here.god thread splitting is so useful, love it so much!!
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 does make some sense, thanks for giving your stance on it
That's all giving me admin would be... Just another tool in the tool box that served a slightly different purpose.
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 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.
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
Answer from Ilyich[as]have him contact me to reset it if the "reset password" form isn't working for him
I do not remember my stupid forum password. I tried to log in post blids answers
1. Tk has said many times that he would like to be admin again. It is not at his behest that we make this post, it is at ilyich's.
2. Tk has experience being an admin and knows the role and responsibilities of the admin.
We clan [as] and i am sure lots of people from all arround the world want to say that we would like to have tk[as] as an admin on our server. He is a long time player known by almost everyone on the server. He did lots of good things for our game and server. We think that it is a great idea and that he will help a lot our comunity. He loves war2, trained lots of people, is a good organisator/leader and a nice person. If there are any other people who think like us let us know, if for any reaoson you think that it is a bad idea let us know why. Would be very nice not to have any ,,stupid'' accusation and personal attacks. Let`s try to have an repsectfull topic even if we all know our comunity.can you list some examples of what he will do to help the community? i wouldn't have a problem with tk becoming an admin if he's going to serve some purpose, but if it's purely to "recognize past achievements" and all he'll be doing is wearing the icon then i oppose. (this is my thinking for any potential candidate, not just tk.)
i think he means thisWhat does this meanWhat are these "hardware mods" you speak of?
Keyboard with all of the hotkeys organized specifically for War 2. I'm not sure if he uses double-click or not but I imagine so
I mean you can already hotkey buildings and unit groups within War2 so are you saying like he has keys programmed to do macros like 1p2p3p?
Il brought over (from vpn) / created the master tag for me exclusively, then burnt fought reluctantly to change that.
Not il, but Ldir. And you was one of three masters. But you definitely was the best one.
The first master was MasterKSA. He got this tag in 2004, when war2.ru was not known outside a small company. Here is the history page with KSA's master certificate (at the bottom):
Later, war2.ru became more popular, and a lot of people with good skills joined this server. In 2005 you beat MasterKSA 6-1 and got the "master tag" from Ldir. About the same time Gimli has beaten all the Russian players (including MasterKSA), and got the "master tag" too. So, only three players have historical "master tags" given by Ldir: you, Gimli and MasterKSA.
I even have somewhere replays of your competition with MasterKSA, if you want I'll try to find them.
