    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      It is now superceded by Server Manager.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.

      Server assignments:
    T1-2
    ----
    surf_duggywuggy
    surf_ethereal
    surf_me

    T1-3
    ----
    surf_duggywuggy
    surf_ethereal
    surf_me
    surf_insideout_final

    T3-4
    ----
    surf_insideout_final
    surf_vale2
    surf_beginner_hell

    • Airaccelerate changed on BHop
      Suggested here: http://forums.f-o-g.eu/threads/12554-airaccelerate-csgo-bhop.html
      The airaccelerate has been changed to 1000, records have NOT been reset.
    • 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!

    Very nice n0;name.
    I'm glad FoG isn't dying after so many left.

    Lovely. Wish I had the time to learn how to develop plugins as well.
    Gl with the new server
    @n0name@n0name so if I apply for SM on ZE, I can't be admin on surf 1-3?

    Pretty much yes. Otherwise you would have SM permissions (at least admin-wise) on 1-3 too.
