    Upcoming Changes

    Hey guys -

    It's been a while but we're still here! We'll be making some changes over the coming days weeks to re-shape and get things back going again.

    The first of these changes is that we'll be pulling the game server (aka iOPRIME) / TF2 box out of the Chicago data center and back over to my house to clean it up and do a health check. We'll then send it off to the NY data center which we believe is a more strategic location for bringing in more gamers and comprising the latency with the European player that we have.

    Additionally, we have a new site, new forum software in the works that Thorrr has been working feverishly on. It's coming out awesome and should give us the cleanup and fresh air that we need around here.

    Stay tuned for some further updates, but just wanted to throw this out there.

    Thank you to all of our loyal members and staff for the continued support over the last few years! We wouldn't be around still if it weren't for you guys. Let's get this going again!!!!!

    Looking forward to the next few weeks.

    Best Wishes,

    We will be rolling out the forums first, and then slowly adding more pages. I will most likely be finishing the initial release myself, and then after that as we move forward i'd love help in any form.

    What did you have in mind?


    There will be tons of things that will need to be improved after the initial release, ( lots of icons/images that i don't like and think can be better), as we release more content/pages they will need to be tested, bugs reported.

    Any help is welcome, let me know what your strengths are and i am sure we can work together. The thing i hate the most is doing template edits to get the external pages looking nice so if anyone is great with that kind of thing

    Re: Upcoming Changes

    I can definitely help with the icon/images part, I happen to be very capable with Photoshop for that aspect. I'm also very good with front-end development of html (css3, js/jq, html5, that sort). (connecting shit isn't me, just design and making everything look awesome.)

    Like I said, I would *love* to help with the website (or anything for the better of the community) in any way possible. I've been an admin here for well over a year now, and I feel quite useless given my skills.

    I would like to nominate myself as the official TeamSpeak server administrator! I know a few cool tricks you can do to make it look good and such.

    edit> Forgot to mention I've also had plenty experience with TS3 administering (though there's not much to learn).
