    I thought I'd start this topic and I'm sure it will have many opinions on the matter, I just ask you keep it respectful and leave any 'name calling' out of it. I have had a REALLY serious issue with how staff, in particular myself are treated on EGC Servers and think this matter needs to be addressed with ALL members. I believe there are certain people in our community who no matter how many opportunities or 'fair requests' that are made of them believe they are above the server rules or that these rules don't really apply to them. I make reasonable requests when someone is 'mic spamming' or 'multiposting in chat' and I usually do it in a very nice way 'hey m8, please ease up on the posts', 'hey guys please chill on mic a little and remember to let others advertise'. However there are some who think they have no only the right to argue with me but then take it a step further with unnecessary insults and personal attacks. Now I have been an admin not only with EGC for several years but other TF2 servers over my time in the game and I understand that there are those who just argue for the sake of it ie Trolls, however this has become a serious issue when I have donators and 'regulars' combating me also. I don't ask for much in life, and am fairly content with what I do have. I don't think it is asking too much to get the one thing people should give for free which is respect. If you are a person who thinks that joking about Hitler killing the jews is funny, then I'm sorry I don't want to be in a community where you exist. If you think making fun of someone with disablities 'you are so autisitic' is hilarious then there is something morally wrong with you. Just like anyone else in TF2 I am entitled to be 'offended' by something said/written and yet when I say something about it I'm instantly marked as a 'femnazi' .. .why? because I'm a woman??? It's 2016 and we're still going after the EASIEST and most obvious stupid outdated insult .. .. 'girls don't belong in games'. I am a fair person I like to think and as many refer to me as 'the mother of EGC', I don't try to be however I don't mind assisting people about game issues where I can or even real life issues (which I do constantly), but what is the point if moments after hosting an Event someone says in chat 'Someone shut this annoying bitch up'?? It has got to the point I can't even advertise or ask to advertise without being met with insults and disrespect and honestly I have had enough. Some people in our community need to understand I don't get paid to admin and I certainly under any circumstances don't need to tolerate the abuse and disrespect given. I will be making more in depth reports on the regular 'animals' who can't behave as human beings and have to act like a pack of dogs attacking me in a group rather than being brave enough to take me one on one or even do the mature thing and discuss issues about how I admin directly with me or another Head Admin if it is SUCH a problem. I won't tolerate any more arguing with me about decisions I make as an admin, Kerr and LiMaaa have trusted me enough for several years to know that although human and knowing I make mistakes that I only ever have the servers best interests at heart and do a good job moderating the servers daily. If you think you know better or think you are being unfairly treated take it up with a Head Admin or Server Founders. I will ask people 3-5 times to 'stop multiposting' and apparently that's far too much and I'm still attacked for gagging/muting those who ignore these requests. This won't be acceptable or tolerated anymore and met with consequences if it does continue, ie if you are banned for 'admin disrespect' and come back to do it again that ban WILL be exceptionally longer. Regardless of what people may think or say I have only ever treated people with the same respect you give me, for the most part I LOVE the EGC community and the members we have and MOST are loving and supportive and to those people you know who you are I love and appreciate everything you do, more than words could express. To those of you who have nothing else better to do with your lives other than target/harass/bully someone on the internet. .. .I just say sorry .. .sorry your life is so empty and hollow that being vile is the only way you can get through life. I know most of these animals are kids and still have some 'maturing' to do (don't we all, I'm not perfect and never said/believed I was), however I will only ever accept certain behaviours in life as would anyone else living in the real world, and in the real world when you join it the way you behave and act is simply not accepted or tolerated by anyone. Make better decisions and be better than you were the day before. Anyway I'll wrap this crap up but please don't let me be misunderstood, I'm not saying I'm perfect or don't have things I need to work on myself anyone who isn't learning is dead in my opinion and we all have room to improve. All I'm saying is, I try to be there for the server and the community and don't believe I deserve half as much crap as I get daily even when I do Events. Give me a break honestly.

    This is something I'd like you to pay close attention to @phatcow7 Pay attention, I will not be explaining it again. In order to report an offence to EGC, you require proof. Proof entails either video footage of the incident(i.e demos, youtube videos of the incident) screenshot footage (i.e itemised screenshots of a spycrab, so each time someone crabs you screenshot, agreements of wager in chat or similar), and result of gamble in chat or video. Anything less than that is insufficient proof in order for us to action reports against people for fraud based offenses, your word or opinion is irrelevant to the report. Peruse some of the previous reports that have been accepted to get an understanding of what is required. Im not interested in your concocted reports, heresay, or otherwise wasting of admins time on this community. If you have legitimate evidence that a rule has been breached, feel free to raise it, but ensure it is of a genuine nature. False or attention seeking reports will only be met with repercussions.

    Can we clarify something? No one here cares for your unusuals or donations. Stop trying to use them as a incentive for admins to not punish you. We appreciate donations from users who are kind and wish to support the community, not from users who think they can manipulate our systems with items. You need to grow up, and fast or a perm ban is coming your way. Thanks for the report. Unfortunately you ran from a crab, plain and simple. Phatcow did the right thing and reported you and gave you -trust. Now there is nothing against removing -trust if someone pays back, and that's what happened here. We generally give users a term of 24 hours to rectify crabbing grievances in case they did lose connection legitimately or some other issue prevented them from trading their opponent. This scenario is blurry at best, I am not going to assume you were or were not attempting to do the right thing. Considering you paid back the items and you appear sincere about the whole situation I am going to accept your appeal and unban you from EGC. Please make sure you never have issues crabbing again. ----------- Discussion unrelated to appeal below. I am using this appeal to deal with some standing issues with Phatcow --------- Everyone can imply their assumptions that Phatcow was trying to extort you and implying he could get you unbanned for discounts. In reality, if i am going to be blunt, Phatcow makes dumb decisions. You asked him to remove your trust, and he asked for the ref he won, which is more than fair in my opinion. After you gave him the ref he removed his negative trust. Did he use this situation to his advantage to get a discount on an item he wanted? Yes, he did. It's not uncommon though. It is up to you to agree or not to agree to a trade regardless of the circumstances, if he guaranteed you that you would be unbanned if you gave him items, Phatcow would be perm banned right now, but he didn't. He simply stated he knows the owners and can try get you unbanned, and he actually came to me and asked me if I could unban you as you gave him his items back, and I said no. He was honest in that regard. Now don't get me wrong, Phatcow was right at the line, and he almost crossed it, but in saying that, he never made an explicit agreement to you and promised something he could not offer for payment. He simply used the situation of you wanting to not have negative trust to appeal to your trading side and get a discount. In all fairness you are the one who ran from a crab on him. He was a victim and after your interaction with each other you both became victims of your own poor choices. In regards to that matter, Phatcow will not be punished for organizing a trade with you after you ran from a crab, from all the evidence provided it is simply a trade in which you both agreed to take part on relatively fair terms. @phatcow7 Hey there buddy. I am going to use this report to say something to you.You have been causing trouble around this community. You constantly badger me on discord about useless things. You constantly offer items or unusuals as donations for events or EGC donator and you never follow through. You spam and apparently from what I hear you are making untrue claims that you are "tight" "friends" or "close" with the founders to use this as a stepping stone to get what you want. Let me clarify something right now. We are not "tight", "friends" or "close". You are a member of this community and like all other members I will do my best to help you follow the rules, to resolve situations or answer reports. Stop causing trouble in this community, I do not want to hear you making false statements about our relationship within this community. If I get proof of false accusations or statements from you regarding me or the admins you will be permanently removed from this community. As for trading Freakshow numerous times to donate to events, or get EGC donator and then cancelling out the trades, you will be receiving a 1 week ban for trolling admins, fake trading and wasting staff time. Admins here are dedicated and take these things seriously, they do not have time to waste with your childish games. Make sure it doesn't happen again. If you continue to cause issues among users within this community you will be permanently removed. Regards,

    In-case you haven't figured it out yet, i'll be talking about the game Team Fortress 2 and the cheaters that lurk around on it. Hi, I'm Hoste; the resident sniper, child and alleged cheater of EGC, and I'm here to tell you what you need to know about cheaters on Team Fortress 2 - in this instance, those who use 'silent aim'! Before I get into it, I would like to state that I personally do not affiliate myself with or condone the use of cheats in any form, unless it's for singleplayer games; it can't harm anyone if nobody else is affected (I think...). How do I, the reader, know who is cheating on a server? Good question! Say if there's a really good player on the server you're on and you are curious to see if they may be cheating, you can go to the spectate group and watch over any player currently in the game. Find the player in question and watch their actions carefully. Most silent aim-users will try and play like a regular player would; scope out an enemy, aim towards them the best they can and shoot at them, but often they can easily screw up. Just today I was in a public match on hightower having a grand ol' time when a player named 'Agility' was using the Direct Hit as a Soldier and getting some freakin' amazing airshots. It was glorious! I congratulated them on the third time in a row they killed me by an airshot, and then I grew suspicious. From there, I went into spectator mode (after starting a demo recording for my personal sanity [or pleasure]) and watch them from their point of view; first-person. I could see that he was a fairly good soldier, knowing how to rocket jump properly and aim approximately towards the enemies and where they will be, but it was fairly suspicious as I continued spectating the player. Whenever a player were to enter their direct line of sight and they shot, almost all of the time the Direct Hit's rocket would not go towards the cursor but straight towards the player's expected path to hit them. Spoiler alert! They were cheating! This player had scripts and software to shoot projectiles towards the enemy without even looking at them! And from what I continued to see, the projectile moving in prediction to the enemy's linear movement was dependent on the cheater's cursor and how close the enemy is to an invisible (and controllable) radius.[See demo 1] It must be a large radius because, in the second demo where they soon become a Demoman with a Stickybomb Launcher, the bloody bombs were predicting the movement of some odd player far below him![See demo 2] What a joker! This is a textbook example of silent aim and how it is seen, used and able to be determined by a cautious onlooker as cheats rather than skill. In-case you mindfully mix up 'silent aim' with the general term for 'aimbot', the difference between the two is silent aim doesn't always require the cursor for locking onto players as it controls the projectiles and hitscan weapon shots independent of where the cheater is looking (unless it has the variable of a cursor radius [to which I am only guessing is a thing, I mean, why wouldn't it be, right... right?]). The other, more easily noticeable type of aimbot is taking control of the cursor and where the cheater looks to get precise shots, often viewed as snapping to the bodies/heads of enemies and tracing them with inhuman accuracy. Demos for you to view of a silent aim-user (same player twice; got kicked from sitting in spectator for too long): Demo 1: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=58063746798851218601 Demo 2: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=05916550013905586938 Although most cheaters often create new accounts to cheat, the rule of thumb is that if a player with no hats, or only achievement hats, are playing exceedingly well, then they are cheaters. This is the case a majority of the time, but you need to know now: HATS DON'T MEAN SHIT. If you see a player with a freaking Burning Team Captain sniping the knickers off the enemies' heads without even looking at them, that doesn't mean they're just skilled. "Oh, that's a hyperbole you salty poorbie," you may exclaim. If you think that, take a look at one of the players' profiles that were VAC banned in the more notorious wave when the LMAObox software was breached: http://steamcommunity.com/id/JCapps/ Yeah, a Burning Team Captain and many more items worth thousands of dollars in total. This player was VAC banned for using LMAObox. Their backpack is locked forever now, too. Plus, the player in the demos provided here was wearing Earbuds and had a Strange Direct Hit with approximately 10,000 kills (from memory). Any odd player would turn their head and exclaim "it's just skill", but you're better than that now, aren't you; you know the difference between a player using cheats and having spent money on virtual items in a video game. Okay, so why do I give a hot darn about cheaters? I'll tell you why you should give the hottest darn about these cheating players! If a player is cheating on a public server and there aren't enough people to care to vote kick them or report them, it will cause others to think that it doesn't matter if they cheat or not, nothing'll happen to them! So then the odd few children will close their browser's tab for stampylonghead let's plays of Minecraft mods and Google search for Team Fortress 2 cheats and hacks and install the damn things! Now there are more of the bastards running around the game everyone's trying to enjoy! And then there are the players who do care; the ones who play the game either competitively or to have fun in a legitimate game of skill, but now there are more children running around as snipers sniping them headshot after headshot with ease! Madness! What are they to do now? Install the cheats themselves? Quit the game entirely because nobody seems to care about their satisfaction of the game? How about either one of them, because either of those options are just as likely as an outcome! Not only do we have more cheaters running around thinking it's fine, but they're ruining the experience for those who want to have fun on the game, even if it is a bloody community server. Because there are people committing these omissions, the game is just overrun with more cheaters and immoral players! Christ, it's even worse now! What do you expect me to do about it, then? Huh? What you can do is, whenever there is a cheater on a server that you've distinguished for having silent aim or any other type of unfair advantage through third-party means and whatnot, you can press the 'Esc' key to bring up the menu and click the 'Report Player' square button that is located ontop of the 'Resume Game' rectangle button. From there, you can select the name of the player you believe is cheating and then select the category for why you are reporting them, click done and you're finished! Easy! It wasn't that difficult, now was it? Reporting them will (I believe) get VAC to start monitoring the player and determining if any outside programs are being used in tandem with the game that may be malicious, unidentified or obviously cheats! Seriously, it's not hard to report a player. Even if they literally are the kennyS of TF2 with superhuman reflexes, insanely-good game sense and a smile to make you weak in the knees, reporting a player for cheating even when they don't cheat doesn't have a penalty. Don't abuse it either, kiddo. And there you have it. Now that you know that this is a problem and know how to determine whether a player is using silent aim (a notoriously hard-to-tell cheating technique), you now have the power and knowledge to stop cheaters in their tracks by reporting them and getting on with your life knowing you helped those who actually give a damn in the first place. Oh, you expected to be rewarded by reading all of this text? *sigh* Well, I guess I do owe you for that; here's a picture of a fluffy kitten next to an adorable rabbit. Enjoy! Thanks for reading!

    Looking into the chat logs further, I see the text you've screenshotted. I also see the text leading up to the exchange in question. It looks like you were baiting for a user response in chat, then when someone responded directly and negatively, you then screenshotted that, and made a report. Here is your chat log: http://stats.endlessgamers.com/player_histories/chat/158820 ..and some snippets: Sep 5, 2018 3:57:04 pm Ms Freakshow is gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 3:57:35 pm Ms Freakshow is gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:00:08 pm Ms Freakshow has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:00:11 pm Ms Freakshow has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:00:42 pm Ms Freakshow has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:00:57 pm Ms Freakshow has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:01:08 pm Ms Freakshow has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:34:10 pm Kitty of hell has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:34:19 pm Kitty of hell has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:34:39 pm Blade has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:34:54 pm Kitty of hell has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:35:09 pm Kitty of hell has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:35:22 pm Kitty of hell has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:36:10 pm I'm a tranny and I upload porn to PH so trust me, I know when someone has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:36:19 pm I'm a tranny and I upload porn to PH so trust me, I know when someone has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:36:38 pm Kitty, I'm a tranny and I upload porn to PH so trust me, I know when someone has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:37:21 pm Kitty, I'm a tranny and I upload porn to PH so trust me, I know when someone has the big gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:38:03 pm kitty, who are you insulting now? ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:38:38 pm Kitty, I wasn't insulting you, I was telling the truth about me having a trans pornhub ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:39:31 pm kitty of hell ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:39:37 pm Kitty, I wasn't insulting you, I was telling the truth about me having a trans tumblr and a pornhub ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:39:54 pm when a gay person call you gay is a joke ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:40:10 pm when a gay person call you gay is a joke, don't take it seriously ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:40:26 pm you get offended when I (a transgender and gay person) called you gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:40:37 pm you got offended when I (a transgender and gay person) called you gay ★ EGC | TRADE | US-WEST Sep 5, 2018 4:42:27 pm check my tumblr or my pornhub if you don't believe me.

However, claiming those personal traits give you the authority online to declare other people's sexual orientation is not only misguided, but unnecessary in TF2 trade chat, and is generally rude. Sexual preferences and gender alignment have 0 bearing on trading. (Also, third-party advertisement, especially of porn websites, is explicitly forbidden by our server rules.) The report against banks is legitimate, however things were uncovered from the investigation about the accuser that cannot be ignored, given the circumstances. Decision: Accused will be gagged for 1 hour, effective immediately. Reporter will be gagged for 1 hour for third-party advertisement, and provocation of a user with intent to issue a report, effective immediately.

    I have implemented a point system where you can up vote and down vote content based on its relevance. This will be good to filter good content based on members views. There is no limit to up voting content, and a 10 point-per-day down voting content. Do not abuse reputation: Reputation should not be abused. Up vote quality content to improve user interactivity. Down vote should only be used when something is off-topic, abusive, negative or doesn't provide substance to a topic. Abusing reputation or liking 'all your friends' posts will result in the trust put in you by EGC being revoked. If content is down voted enough, it will automatically be hidden. If content is up voted, it will be highlighted or used as 'best answer'. RSS FEEDS: RSS feeds have been added for steam, ozbargains. These deals can be located in the Freebies and Coupons section. Title Emoticons [Test]: we are testing emoticon titles and ranks. Sizes and images may be off.

    Hi. Let's face it, there's a lot of stupid crap that happens on the server/s whilst admins aren't around, whether it be screaming children or the like. So, to take advantage of the situation for your valuable, delicious clicks, I have done my small part in piloting a YouTube video series on my channel dedicated to the exact stupid shit we know today as the youthful trading community on the EGC servers. If you enjoy this first episode of many potential episodes in future, be sure to support this small series by liking the post and/or video! Also, be sure to follow this thread as I will reply to it with a link to the next episode when/if it is made!

    Now, for this thread to live up to it's name... or in this case, title. Thank you Lima for your very open response and information, we value both your and Ker's time deeply. But now, after the strawpoll has concluded on 75% of voters wanting information on the new map and 15% of them complaining about clickbait, it's time to leak some select map design sections. The new map will blow your mind. Trust me, trust Lima and Ker. Look familiar? Yeah, they do. *New map information will be posted on this thread in future. Get hyped. Get #B1HYPE'd.

    I don't know why you think egc has been dying, apart from bugs and some issues we have had more player flow than ever. Also i want to reiterate that admins have taken no sides, we are assessing the report fairly and unbiased. The truth of the matter Fras is you are making something dramatic when it doesn't need to be. Adolf may in your eyes be not fit for admin, but you and keybae did not take the correct measures in reporting adolf's actions if you felt that he was not handling admin correctly. In fact I have had no previous reports from you or any other regulars about adolf or any other admin. I feel that if you were really concerned about adolf's actions and you felt the way he was handling himself as an admin was unfair to the community. that you would have made a report or at least contacted me to discuss any issues and seek help to resolve them, that wasn't done. What seems to be the case is that you and keybae have a gripe with adolf, that you have made a decision in your own minds that he isn't fit for admin and you made it your aim to troll, undermine or disturb him whilst he is on the servers. Looking at the report it seems the only point at which you and keybae felt the need to report adolf was when he banned you guys, making it seem like you are only irritated with the way he dealt with you vs concerned for the general community. I say this because you seem to state so often that he is an unfit admin and you care about EGC a lot, which i believe you do care for EGC, but you didn't even dedicate the time to talk to me sooner about adolf or any other issues, instead you make assumptions that we are siding with admins before we have even come to a conclusion and just decide to walk out on the community? In all honesty if you are willing to leave egc at the drop of a hat due to the result of your own actions I really contemplate how much dedication you really had towards this community?! That being said I have no hard feelings towards you or Keybae, but i do believe that you guys broke the rules and intentionally tried to cause mischief which clearly backfired and I don't think it's fair to turn the spotlight onto adolf or EGC regarding this specific matter. I think sometimes you need to grow up, admit you f*** up and move on. As for admin behavior, we do take admin roles very seriously here and we try our best to train and make sure every admin is at his/her best, We will be looking into any admin issues that arise and handling them the best way we can, but you need to talk to us if you have issues, running egc takes a lot from everyone, including the admins, so make our lives easier and work with us to resolve issues, not against us. P.S. Nice song, cant stop listening to it.

    The reason why I want to be a EGC staff member is to help expand the community and create a safe environment for traders. I've been with EGC for a few years now, starting off as a donator then over time become a +lifetimer. As my time being on the US server , I could say knowing admins such as N!K , Munt3d , Rockso , Freakshow and Allanon . (Also Kerrr and Limaaa) who have made a tremendous impact for always making the server safe and being a great friend. As for this application I just wanted to say how great of a community this is and the friends I made over the past months. Hopefully my experience will inspire others to stay and trade with wonderful people. Thank you and I wish the best of luck to the other applicants !

    Without knowing the ins and outs of this, Im not going to say anyone is wrong or right, or offer specific advice about this situation. That is for you guys to resolve in your own manner. Generally speaking though, I've always tried to keep things in perspective in my life. I have my ups and downs, just like anyone. Sometimes the downs last longer than I would like. But when I feel that way, I try to take a step back, take my blinkers off and look at my life for what it really is. As depressing as that may sound, it gives me strength to know that even when things aren't going very well, I know that there's someone out there in the world that would take the life I have in a heartbeat and that my problems aren't the end of the world. I know thats a really cliche thing to say, but it works for me. Don't get me wrong though, Im in no way trying to dismiss or understate the feeling you're having, I've been there, and I think in some manner everyone has, particularly in our younger years. Time goes on though, old wounds heal (they will eventually!), and we move on with life. On a personal note though, we've had our clashes over our time on EGC, as I have with others also. Sometimes I put my own wall up and dont consider how my words or actions will affect others. I could just put it down to being a pretty straightforward kind of guy, I usually dont mess around with letting my feelings known(you can ask Limaaa and Kerrr about that, they dread me on TS late at night). But I could also put it down to the fact I dont always consider other peoples feelings, and thats not something that is easily identifiable in oneself. So if there's something that I've done or said in the past that has caused you genuine concern, then I do sincerely apologise for that. We all have our faults. We all have things that we wish we did differently. Learning from them is the most important thing. Don't allow yourself to wallow in regret of things that were and cant be changed. Look forward without fear and you will prosper. Keep your chin up, and know that despite everything, I do care. “Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate…hate leads to suffering.” - Yoda

    I'll get straight to the point, I was talking to a couple other users about this so thought I'd actually suggest it I feel like there needs to be be a rank lower than admin, "mod/trusted" who can only gag and/or mute, no kick, no ban, nothing There's a few times I've been on since resigning and it's just chaos and none of the admins are available Now you're probably going to say "There's always an admin online, even if we're busy we'll jump on as soon as possible" Why not just "remove" the middleman? I'm not saying give this to anyone, I titled this as Trusted for a reason. Give it to ex-admins, or lifetimers who know what they're doing. No this isn't me asking for power again after I've resigned, it's an issue that's needs attending to and is easily fixed.

    WopTon, The 13 years and younger policy is their as a guidance. Children generally do not have self control when it comes to responsible mic usuage. Some youngsters have shown they can act responsibly on the mic and we do not apply this rule. You intentionally test the limits of both freakshow and adolf and expect to be seen as some kind of hero, then when they finally react to your nonsense you have turned around and acted like you have done nothing wrong and that the EGC admins are savages.................. In response to this episode, Your appeal is DECLINED and your ban will now be PERMANENT -Regards, Munt3d

    I've been hanging around EGC for a long time now and would like to start getting involved more with the community and learn more admin experience. I have a great understanding of Source bans as shown here, http://bans.fyre-g.com/index.php?p=banlist&advSearch=19&advType=admin ,and would like to learn more from others. 3,526 hours on TF2 and counting. I do trading myself, so I understand the lingo, my amigo. I will ban people as fairly as possible with clear indication of warnings both on mic and in text chat. Thanks for reading. :-p

    Seems Limaaa is aware of the issue and is resolving it when he can. I get its a bit spammy, but the guy has got a lot to do, try to be patient. He has a list as long as his arm of stuff to do for the forums, servers, map, host issues etc. I doubt this is at the top of the list.

    All the fear, judgment, ridicule or anger we have towards others is all within our self. If you feel the need to have approval from others, you need to look deep within yourself. That's where the real work starts. Trust who you are, like who you are. Nobody is perfect, but improving on your flaws and strengthening your attributes will make you a great person. If you honestly feel mentally unfit, I would suggest speaking to someone, a school counselor, a psychologist. Sometimes you just need to talk to someone. People are always going to point out flaws or weaknesses because, like you, they are going through the same self beliefs, regrets, ideals, dreams, etc. Be the best you can be, it's a life long work in progress, but there is no other you... I think it's fine to express yourself here. Maybe next time don't put elongated gaps in your sentences so i have to burn out my middle scroll wheel button. Yes, my scroll wheel did just die on me scrolling this post. FML!
