Well damn. This is going to take some getting used to, after six years with Lack.

You did well, Lack. Cheers.

Yeah lack - it was a fantastic achievement to make this site with its gaming & community - hope you will be proud of it throughout your livelong days.
Hats off to andy, a model to community managers everywhere.

And best wishes to the new management, hope you are coming up with a strategy for action.

Holy balls. Never thought I'd see the day.

Going to be weird without the head turtle being the head turtle and the banana obsessed monkey not being 2nd in Command. But good luck to the new owners and good luck to the former heads with integrating as "regulars."
I am what I am.


What, you expected something deep or flashy?

Lack provided me with a list of the things he wished he had the time to make happen and improving the clan experience was near the top of it. We now have the time and resources that we will be able to tackle it before long. There are some smaller updates to work on first (and some time required for everyone involved to get comfortable with the code). We should have a timeline and a more detailed description of exactly what clan features we are working on soon.

I was just wondering we're the new officials stand on competitive clans there have been tons of broken promises from the old? Is this going to continue with the new guys promise the world to make us happy and do nothing to buy time and then in another year just repromise and still do nothing?

Just wondering

A first step would be to make multiple invites possible for identical games. In many tournies you have the same group of six players, for instance, playing 10 identical games on Classic or whatever. That could be done by putting the invite lines directly on the Create Game page, so you fill in the players' names, and then you just create the same game multiple times.

A second step would be to make the same thing possible when the same group of players play different games. Not much more challenging.

A third step would be to make it possible to load a text file into an invite portal of some kind. So, you create five 8-player games, and then you just upload your text file with 40 names on it and they are invited into the 40 empty slots in sequence

The fourth and possibly most exciting step, is the bypass invitations entirely and load players directly into games, the way the Conquer Cup does. If you recall, lackattack promised that the Conquer Cup engine would eventually be available to all tournament organisers, and El Jefe has reiterated that this promise will eventually be fulfilled.

Are we going to get an explanation on why (and a list of who) people were booted? Let's face it, GLG is a hot topic on this site and people are wondering what's going on.

I don't disagree with that but I don't like that people got the boot with no explanation. Someone posted that he wasn't the only one and I'ld like to know who else and why. I'll probably agree with what they did but I'd still like to know. The more you keep people in the dark that less happy they'll be.

Gunn mentioned that he heard "Someone post that he wasn't the only one", so I was just clarifying that specific incident mentioned was a normal multi-case (if indeed it's the same one)

With regards to glg which I surmise is the cause of this apprehension, there's little I know, and even less I can share, so someone else would likely need to enlighten you.
I can say tho that the Mods are aware of the consternation, and the issue is under discussion currently so hopefully some light will be shed on it, but again, since I haven't followed it personally, and am not involved officially, it's something I didn't address in my earlier post

I'll give my opinion on all of this -

In many cases busts and other disciplinary actions take place behind the scenes and there is no public thread for various reasons including the following factors:

1. a post or pm might have been reported (using the little exclamation mark in the triangle)
2. it might have resulted from a routine scan
3. it might have resulted from a request by another mod
4. it may have resulted from repeated observation of particular users
5. other ways I may not know about (me not being a member of the hunters)

GLG has certainly had a very colourful past here and I know has certainly had clashes with a lot of people over many issues... mods and non mods alike. Thus there are many possibilities that could have triggered his recent ban. I, myself, only became aware of it this morning and while it would be nice to have more information I know that the decision is not one that would have been lightly made. These decisions generally take time and often the user has had many many chances before it reaches this stage. Most often a decision like this is taken with the view of having a better overall community and it is often pretty clear where the user has broken the rules or gone against guidelines. We all know that GLG was constantly pushing and it is extremely likely that we are fairly sure what his violations were.

At the end of the day, while I hope admin will see fit to make a statement on the matter, it is their decision and one that I expect they have properly made. The other ban that came about seems to have been a regular ban based on completely normal procedures from the Hunters and not in any way linked to the GLG case but also seems to have been trigger by some behind the scenes action. I don't think there is any intent at secrecy merely work being done as part of the mod/admin "jobs" that has resulted in these 2 situation. If admin choose to provide the reasons I look forward to reading the explanation as keenly as, I am sure, you all do.

Sorry for my lateness, I meant to have something prepared sooner for the public:

Many of you have heard separate reasons that are all things that have contributed to the permanent website ban of the player Gen.LeeGettinhed. His gameplay and abuse of the game alone did not give him this ban, his incessant use of moderator times and frustrations across multiple departments alone did not warrant his vacation, and neither, alone, did his generally unpleasant way of handling situations with the Team grant him this vacation.

GLG's banning was brought on by a summation of all of the previous. His gross abuse of the game, waste of multiple moderation teams' time, and generally annoying attitude towards TeamCC and the community at large all pointed to one direction: GLG was not worth our, nor the community's time. The site and the community will be better off with him not being a factor of the website, and ultimately, this is one example of us exercising the Common Sense clause that if a member is making the community less enjoyable for others, that they will be removed from it. This was decided on not only by myself, but other admin as well.

If you would like to discuss this information further, I encourage it in a healthy and respectful manner in another thread. As for 'others' being banned, there isn't anyone (to my knowledge) that is out of the normal Disciplinary scale. I think the 'others' comment was accidentally misleading! Best,

I hope that me asking for info wasn't taken offensively.

I am a supporter of the admin of this site and appreciate all that you do, especially the volunteers.

Sorry for my lateness, I meant to have something prepared sooner for the public:

Many of you have heard separate reasons that are all things that have contributed to the permanent website ban of the player Gen.LeeGettinhed. His gameplay and abuse of the game alone did not give him this ban, his incessant use of moderator times and frustrations across multiple departments alone did not warrant his vacation, and neither, alone, did his generally unpleasant way of handling situations with the Team grant him this vacation.

GLG's banning was brought on by a summation of all of the previous. His gross abuse of the game, waste of multiple moderation teams' time, and generally annoying attitude towards TeamCC and the community at large all pointed to one direction: GLG was not worth our, nor the community's time. The site and the community will be better off with him not being a factor of the website, and ultimately, this is one example of us exercising the Common Sense clause that if a member is making the community less enjoyable for others, that they will be removed from it. This was decided on not only by myself, but other admin as well.

If you would like to discuss this information further, I encourage it in a healthy and respectful manner in another thread. As for 'others' being banned, there isn't anyone (to my knowledge) that is out of the normal Disciplinary scale. I think the 'others' comment was accidentally misleading! Best,

I beat Lack by 9 months, I sold my business in feb. I started out with an idea and started getting drained from all directions. The idea got lost in the tedious everyday bullshit and one mans garbage is another's treasure. Lack seems to have been caught in a similar situation and El_jefe will likely earn money. He has a chance to come in above the bs and not have a thousand compromises to face but a quick slash and burn.

For me this was a slash and burn but not at the source. Perhaps regardless of the strategy used, GLG might be beyond salvage, nevertheless, the quoted reasons above just show a full hearted headlong plunge into the worst depths of the entrenched pit this site now is.

Kafka has his trial and CC has theirs. I've written before on my feelings for the direction of this site and seen many good ideas submitted but it seems that the guard will block the door until we all drift away.

Let me be clear:

Gameplay and abuse of the game: CCs problem.

Moderator abuse: CCs fault.

I can't really see any other reasons given. It takes two to tango and if you light the candles, and play the song don't be surprised at the dancers.
