#112 BTS 2020 LAN cancelled in News
The problem is that we as community organizers are not elected. We are the people who are willing to put the time and effort and (significant amounts of) personal money into this game. With very few exceptions, no one has gotten paid for their involvement in the TF2 scene, and even those few that have will tell you that they did not make a positive return on their investment.

Every project I've ever helped with has had an open call for volunteers. In almost every case, people with no real skillset other than patience and willingness to herd cats for 2-3 hours have been welcome. Every time we get a flood of positive responses then no one shows up, people flake, we end up with the same core dozen or so people doing everything. That's how I ended up doing servers for every NA TF2 LAN for like 4 years. Its not a complex job, anyone who has ever put in rcon commands and seen a linux terminal could do what I do, and probably better, but no one else seems to want to sit in a corner for the entirety of LAN and keep things moving.

The people who are "ambassadors" are really more like organizers. Samiface worked super hard and leveraged contacts she's made in the industry to try and help get this off the ground. You couldn't "elect" anyone into her position.

That's fair but doesn't address the problem where people who organize things are getting involved in forum drama.I was merely proposing a possible fix, but you appear to have acknowledged what I suspected, people flaking their proposed responsibilities.

#110 BTS 2020 LAN cancelled in News

I don't know if this has been said before, and I haven't done more than lurk on these forums in a year but it needs to be said if it hasn't:

If admin reactions to being called out for the improper handling of a player ban (regardless of who is right in that context. My experience with alfa in stream chats was always on the cuff and semi-cordial) is enough to make them throw their hands in the air, cry "boo hoo, everyone should just do the event without me!" and then nuke the event another organization was willing to go out on a limb to assist us in organizing, clearly, we should have not trusted them to organize the event in the first place.

Seriously, can we as a community just start electing some level-headed ambassadors with no drama attached? I don't care how good they are at the game, or how often they've been involved in production or whatever, just get some nice, level headed community members into power and start feeding them resources. Seriously. Drama from community organizers has been plaguing us since at least 2011.

#5 Questions about Nietzsche and Heidegger in Off Topic

I resent that. I think this is interesting.

Anyway I'm an anthro major but I am studied in some philosophy. I also studied both in english, not german so some language barrier pains. Hope it's cool.

1. Nietzche believes that our reality is reflected in our perspectives. If you cannot see meaning in the world, then there must be no meaning to it. It's your agency that gives the world meaning. You should seek meaning for yourself though, because if meaning is only attained by your perception of meaning, then by default there is no meaning until you decide there is. He is both a nihilist and not by this logic.

2. I'm less studied with Heidegger but from what I remember, without language, there would be no way to define anything in his mind. And because you cannot define it, it becomes impossible to prove its existence. Language speaks man. You exist because language existed to define you. A lot of people conventionally disagree with this, but it's a curious thought. You would have to imagine what it would be like to not have any type of linguistic symbol applied to your existence. I liken it to Eldritch horrors of Lovecraftian lore honestly but a step further. Not only was the thing indescribable, but also no language existed to describe it to begin with. Your consciousness would not even be conscious to comprehend it.

#61 what's the inspiration behind your alias? in TF2 General Discussion

A very awkward corruption of Croatian dečko and Turkish zor. I spoke neither language and was a scrawny Korean kid of like 15 or something when I started using the alias.

#7 ESEA Season 25 Invite Highlights in Videos

I haven't seen a frag movie use a rock song since ShaDowBurn and honestly, this is a better song than any of his frag highlights.

Nor has he ever been since you can look that up. Can't link the result unfortunately. This would have been really funny if true but the boy who cried wolf shit on this forum is a bit too common.

#3 Valve, TF2 prize money and us in TF2 General Discussion

I believe 6 v 6 remains the way to go especially since it's used ingame for competitive matchmaking. The real issue is getting weapons and maps sorted to a point where viewers understand what's going on, and yet doesn't alienate them because their favorite weapon or strategy isn't going to work. Another huge hurtle is getting players not to only use one class. This seems to be a major mental block for pubbers who decide a main quickly on 2fort and rarely deviate.

#67 Ways that you're a hypocrite in Off Topic

I hate the scene goth punk rock look, but I somehow wound up looking like that. (Probably because I listen to scene goth punk rock...)

#14 anyone good with computers here? in Hardware

This sounds like a CPU or RAM error if the computer is getting power and spinning the fans but won't boot. Alternatively it could have fried a board but if the board is supplying the fans with power rather than the fans being directly powered by the PSU I'd be hesitant to assume that.

#4 TfDemViewer in Projects

I mean, I would love this if it played demos without launching tf2 at all. Like I wouldn't need to load the game or anything? I haven't any idea what the tool is like due to it being a download link without screenshots, but I'm assuming it just launches tf2 with a demo pre loaded?

#14 tag in TF2 General Discussion

I personally found teamfortress tv when looking for more invite coverage after Extelevision started focusing on highlander. This was maybe the first season teamfortress tv started uploading on YouTube. Basically, the best thing for us though would be to advertise within and outside of our game. Streams ingame and on vods. Not just the descriptions either. Literally put on your stream: "like what you see? for more" or something

#16 ETF2L Nations Cup #6 viewer’s guide in News

.... I predict England, Sweden or Germany personally, but I'm not EU so what do I know. Are rosters going to be announced soon or have they been updated and I should just hunt them down?

Edit: Actually has anyone besides Medico been confirmed for France?

#36 Marathon and Weight Training in Off Topic

Hi Dreamboat, I've missed your coverage of ozfortress while we're both tired beyond our minds at ungodly hours. Do they even still sell bowflex? I wouldn't be interested as I live alone in an apartment complex, but I genuinely haven't heard of that company since I was 10.

#32 Marathon and Weight Training in Off Topic

So as a follow up, I've been making a new workout schedule. For clarification, those who told me to focus on the time rather than the distance, does this mean I shouldn't be worried if when I wear myself out it's shorter than my goal? As long as I'm running 30 minutes to an hour at a good pace (10 minutes per mile appears to be my goal).
