Those of you who tried to play Friday were greeted with a lot of lag and loss of shrubbot commands (e.g. levels). I'm working to restore that now, and I haven't heard from our host what they think the cause is. It appears the silent database directory is corrupted, all shrubbot levels assigned to your silent GUIDs have been lost. I'll see if we can get this restored from a backup, otherwise we'll just need to reassign everyone. I can try and do that as well.
You thought we forgot about you guys! It has been too long, but its still important to recognize all of you who continue to show up here and keep this clan and this server going after all these years. On behalf of the admins, I extend our sincere appreciation for you all.
The admins have decided on the following immediate rank changes:
Liquid (Colonel) ---> Brigadier General
QT (Colonel) ---> Brigadier General
Sakura (Lieutenant Colonel) ---> Colonel
Totes (Lieutenant Colonel) ---> Colonel
Neurosis (Major) ---> Lieutenant Colonel
BangBang (Captain) ---> Major
Taukima (First Lieutenant) ---> Captain
Bearcat (First Lieutenant) ---> Captain
Motion (First Sergeant) ---> Second Lieutenant
Gatorhead (First Sergeant) ---> Second Lieutenant
Who (Staff Sergeant) ---> First Sergeant
Anto (Corporal) ---> Sergeant
Some of you have "capped" out at Brigadier General. Though we aren't really hurting for help at the top (there's very little "admining" these days) its probably not fair to exclude those of you who have been loyal, contributing members from not advancing to the next level.
For the following members, please contact me via PM if you are interested in joining the Jr Admin rank:
Its been too long, sorry about not recognizing all of your efforts sooner.
The admins discussed and decided on the following promotions:
Liquid (Lieutenant Colonel) ---> Colonel
QT (Lieutenant Colonel) -----> Colonel
Sakura (Major) ---> Lieutenant Colonel
Totes (Major) ----> Lieutenant Colonel
Neurosis (Captain) ----> Major
BangBang (First Lieutenant) ----> Captain
Taukima (Second Lieutenant) ----> First Lieutenant
Bearcat (Second Lieutenant) ----> First Lieutenant
Gatorhead (Staff Sergeant) ----> First Sergeant
MOTION (Staff Sergeant) ----> First Sergeant
Who (Sergeant) ---> Staff Sergeant
Anto (Private First Class) ---> Corporal
Those of you not in the list, may have capped out at Brigadier General. At this time, we're not interested in adding any more Jr Admins. Frankly, there is very little "admin'ing" going on around here these days anyway. If you really want to reach that level in the clan, please send me a PM and we can consider you for admin ranks. I certainly don't want to overlook people for their contributions and desire to advance
I've solved the problem that was keeping stats from working. The data is 6 months out of date, but no fear - I can still recover all the happenings since then and have fresh data soon. I just need to do some database backups and a few other things before I crunch 6 months worth of data
Anyway - enjoy the stats again, and I'll update when the data is fresh.
Just a fair warning - we will no longer continue paying for the TS3 server after it expires on Jun 11, 2018.
I think people are wanting to move to Discord, so I have removed auto-rebilling on the TS3 server. This is not a financial issue, we usually get generous donations from our members to cover the bills, but more of a desire to move to something else. I have never used Discord, but I hear it is really good and free.
So as of Jun 11, 2018 - the payment runs out on the current TS3 server and we'll be moving to something else. Exactly what that is is up to the community. I will not be able to set up anything or coordinate anything for this.
