Long time since I have made one of thse, but considering a bunch of stuff has stacked up, it's time. Community changes New "Server Manager" position See this thread for more information. Please note that initial applications will take a bit longer, as the infrastructure is still being built (mainly SFTP access / web interface). Forum activity requirement for admin applications (mostly) removed You now no longer need 20 posts prior applying, meaning you can apply straight away. This step was taken due to our forums not really fullfilling their purpose - a place to chat outside the game. Nowadays, it's mostly used for (scam) reports, suggestions, admin apps and the occasional chatter here and there. It's therefore pointless to require applicants to have that amount of posts, if it's not really possible to get them (without shitposting) However, this doesn't mean that every "idiot" will be accepted now - I will focus more on the other points (in-game activity, chat log, etc.) All other requirements remain in-tact. Removal of the Head Admin rank It is now superceded by Server Manager. Server changes Second Beginner Surf server Due to the popularity of our current Beginner server, I have decided to open up a second one. It will have 32 slots as a start, as the machine where its running on isn't as powerful. Other than that, it has the same config/maps as our current server. Information can be found here: http://forums.f-o-g.eu/threads/13010-cs-go-beginner-2-surf-server-tier-1-2-a.html New surf maps All maps suggested here have now been installed on their respective servers. They should be available for voting after the next map change.

Blocked radio comms All radio comms are now blocked on all Surfs / BHop. Fixed an issue with the CPWR checkpoints being out of order (caused by natural sort on strings). Ongoing: configuring new skins/removing old ones (ZE) Once our modeller delivers the second pack of models, they will be added to the server. Some older ones will be removed (to reduce the # of downloads). More will be announced in the respective thread. Apart from that, ongoing changes to map rotation (ZE), suggestions here and there (e.g. Retakes). Upcoming changes (both server & community/other) BHop Donator server Still needs zoning, will be announced once its ready and online. New site for reporting scammers/appealing FoG bans A new site is in the works which works similarily to a ticket system, which will replace our current forum system in the future and should speed up our workflow quite a bit. It is currently in the second internal testing phase, hoping to get a public beta out this weekend. More on that later (and that's also the site I have been working on the past ~3 months). Did I miss any unhandled suggestion? Feel free to post below!
