    Something I've held in for a long time

    Hi gamesam100, I appreciate your post and it's nice to hear that we in someway had a positive impact on your TF2 experience, sorry that it turned out sour for you. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe and friendly environment for users to be able to express themselves, trade and have a good time. Unfortunately like anything, there are two sides to a coin, we have to be able to maintain this environment and that is not always easy. Our admins are trained to the best of our ability to help them understand different social needs, how to implement rules and how to communicate with other players effectively, but we are all human. Some people take on board our training and dramatically grow, others are ingrained with their own beliefs and it can steer from our directive. It seems like you got a bit of brunt that may not have been warranted, but you need to know that it doesn't need to define you. Said admin was removed from our staff due to several reasons that showed us they were not in a place anymore to put in the dedication and gentle approach it takes to moderating players in our community. We have tried our best to support them and train them, but unfortunately it just wasn't a productive fit anymore. Some people internalize things and others project them onto others, what's important to understand is that it's not your fault in regards to what happened and you don't need to be defined by it. Understand that people make mistakes and hurt others, but it is how you handle it and grow from the experience that will decide how you look back on this situation and what you take from it. You seem like a relatively smart guy and I hope this gives you some sense of closure on the subject, that you can understand that we all have our battles and we have to stay strong, be the bigger person and move on from it, process it and grow from the experience, bettering ourselves along the way. We have made some major changes around the community and our staff, we are currently re-branding and expanding the community. I hope you will stop by and visit us again, that this doesn't solidify your experience at EGC. Kindest Regards,

    You are marked on steamrep.com, once you appeal there and the staff lifts your mark, then you will automatically be unbanned from the community. It is out of our hands, you must appeal to steamrep.com. Usually paying back the user who was scammed and showing proof to steamrep.com via the appeal process will get you unmarked. Goodluck!

    I was banned back in Nov. 2011, doing a middle man scam with a group of people. This was 8 years ago, when i was a stupid 16 year old with no money. I am no longer this person lol.
  24. Hi all, Intel CPU pricing has finally come down and stock is available to start making deals worthwhile again, so if you weren't keen on the R5 2600 | GTX 1660 deal this might be for you for a CPU that sits between R5 2600 and R5 3600 for gaming performance (and price). Happy to hear suggestions for other i5 9400F / X GPU combinations as well and I'll whip up some more deals. All i7s are still hard to come by and very expensive so not really an option at the moment. Spec: Core i5 9400F | GTX 1660 6GB | 8GB 2400MHz DDR4 | 240GB 2.5" SSD | H310 MB | 550W PSU | Leaper Small Form Factor Case. Price: $749 with 9400F-1660 Link: https://techfast.com.au/collections/intel-systems/products/t... Popular upgrades for "base spec" systems are the B360 motherboard (Biostar B360MHD Pro series) featuring the m.2 slot and switching the 240GB 2.5" for the 240GB NVMe drive, for $39 & $39 respectively. Any existing due order with 1660 GPUs should be shipping tomorrow. MSI is not guaranteed for the base card (will more than likely be Inno3D dual fan) but we have a large number of MSI Ventus on hand for the 1660 Ti upgrade, so if you're keen, go for it and you'll get MSI. If you missed any recent popular deals here are some: R5 2600 | RTX 2080: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/482624 R7 2700 | RX 5700: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/481247 Entry Level i3 | GTX 1650/RX570 4GB: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/482435 Luke View full article here

  26. Previous paid features are now all free. How it works What is Sandboxie and how is it different than other solutions? Think of your PC as a piece of paper. Every program you run writes on the paper. When you run your browser, it writes on the paper about every site you visited. And any malware you come across will usually try to write itself into the paper. Traditional privacy and anti-malware software try to locate and erase any writings they think you wouldn't want on the paper. Most of the times they get it right. But first the makers of these solutions must teach the solution what to look for on the paper, and also how to erase it safely. On the other hand, the Sandboxie sandbox works like a transparency layer placed over the paper. Programs write on the transparency layer and to them it looks like the real paper. When you delete the sandbox, it's like removing the transparency layer, the unchanged, real paper is revealed. Sophos is excited to announce that we are making Sandboxie a free tool, with plans to transition it to an open source tool. This new evolution of Sandboxie is one we are enthusiastic about, but that does not mean this was an easy decision to make. Sandboxie has never been a significant component of Sophos’ business, and we have been exploring options for its future for a while. Frankly, the easiest and least costly decision for Sophos would have been to simply end of life Sandboxie. However, we love the technology too much to see it fade away. More importantly, we love the Sandboxie community too much to do that. The Sandboxie user base represents some of the most passionate, forward thinking, and knowledgeable members of the security community and we didn’t want to let you down. After thoughtful consideration we decided that the best way to keep Sandboxie going was to give it back to its users – transitioning it to an open source tool. We will release more information about the open source project as we continue to work on the details. Until the open source transition is completed we have decided to make all restricted features of Sandboxie completely free. View full article here
  27. I am describing my defining experiences at an EGC trade server. Unless there is something explicitly prohibiting this type of post in the terms and services page I couldn't open, please don't ignore this as another pointless rant. This is an attempt to get closure on something that has haunted me for the last 5 years. I don't know where else to talk about this. Around 5 years ago, near the beginning of my ventures into tf2, I checked a "top tf2 trading server" website and found the EGC US West server. The year before, I had "quit" tf2 and most of my server experience then was playing on a neonheights trade_plaza server. I liked this new server. There were a lot of people trading tf2 wares and everything was generally bustling and fun. After a few days on going to this server, I saw a very assertive user lay down the rules. Her name was Ms. Freakshow. At first, I liked her; she was firm and commandeering with the rules. She took control of the situation. There was even a time where I asked the server in-chat if I could pick up someone's shooting star and she told me I should pick up hers when she died in-game. I thought of her as a good person. I knew she could be a little harsh at times by insulting players who didn't listen to her, but I never considered her to be too bad. However, there came a time where I was in the server (around my senior year of high school at this time) where she said something and I said something harmless, yet a bit childish. (It frustrates me to no end that I don't remember exactly what she said and what I typed, but think of it as if someone said, "...Now in this literary piece, they are obviously using figurative language as you can't literally hold someone's heart" and I replied "What if he's a surgeon?"). When I typed this, she said something along the lines of "There's always that one guy who makes that stupid remark". I know that it doesn't sound so bad, but it was something about her exact wording and the way she said it that really stung. It felt that she her intention was to humiliate me as much as possible without a second thought given to how I would feel and if that was her intention, she hit the right spot. Episodically during my life, I would feel the anger and humiliation of that moment. Episodes like these worsened two years later and nearly culminated in an incident of self-harm two years ago (I've since gotten help). Another episode that got me riled up was when she told someone who was around middle school age that he was the reason his parents didn't love each other because he was engaging in light mic-spamming. Again, doesn't sound so bad, but I'm pretty sure whoever that player was went through/is going through a similar thing as I did, given that is seems to have upset him enough to stop mic-spamming. I've thought about this for a long time now. "It was my fault for being so sensitive." "I need to let go so this doesn't eat up my thoughts." "Why can't I stop thinking about this ♥♥♥♥ing incident?" I've tried to claim psychological victories when her unusual taunts lost value or when she stopped being a EGC admin, but that lingering feeling has always stayed there. In 8 out of the last 24 hours I tried to exorcise this feeling through a tactic that was obsessive and insane. I scoured the internet for anything collaborating the experiences I went through. I've gone through this forum, the ECG discord, and many a steam comment. And everyone's impression seems so positive. "Trusted admin"; "The best admin EGC has ever had"; "Someone make her head admin". Almost nothing about her negative side. I readily accept the fact that she can be the most respectable, interesting, and even nice person you'd ever meet, but that's only if you're following the rules she expects. Nobody seems to acknowledge that fact that she loses all semblance of decency once you break one. I get that admins have to be tough, but having someone in an rule-enforcing rule add insult to disciplinary injury feels like it's making it personal. I know she's long gone, but I wanted to talk about my experiences and just hear what you guys have to think since you guys knew her and know the trade server experience better than the people I know in real life. Especially you LiMaaa. Even when you took her side, your decisions were respectful and logical. Even if this post is removed for being too irrelevant or inflammatory, I'd love to talk to you about it Is how I feel about this unreasonable? Do I not belong in trade servers? What's her side on all this? How should I get over this once and for all?
