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."

Congrats on growing the site so well lack and bowing out gracefully. I've now spent over a fourth of my life (!) as a CC member and still love playing.

Andy, you da man for shouting out the longest thread, thread. You've also done a great job on here. Clear and level leadership!

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 defiantly think we should get some sort of notification we important people are booted.

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.
