Announcements / Hiatus; end
« Last post by derek01 on October 24, 2016, 06:20:11 pm »
1 month ago I made a post marking my retirement. Since then I have been dealing with a variety of things personally. Although there are still some things I need to deal with, it has greatly calmed down.

Seeing that Darkstorm Servers is progressing thanks to recent work with our developers, I decided to jump back on the train. You won't be seeing me sitting out on the sidelines now. I would like to reclaim my former position as a Co-Owner, providing and helping in decisions that shape what this place will be.

Starting after this post, I hope to resume my duties here at Darkstorm, leaving behind the hiatus I originally mentioned after the last major staff meeting.

Derek you are one of the very first original staff of Darkstorm. Sad to see you go. Thank you for all of your hard work, and dedication to this server. When life clams down, maybe will see you back around!

I decided that after or towards the end of the meeting, I should discuss an important topic. Very few knew what it was.

As most of you all know, I have been with Darkstorm Servers for around 2-3 years now. I dedicated just about every single hour in Garry's Mod to playing, building, moderating, administrating, and helping as many other leadership roles here in the community. This ultimately landed me a Co-Owner rank here, which I am still proud of to this day, even as I write this resignation.

Recently, my distaste in doing Garry's Mod things and a change in hobbies, life interests are to blame at this point. My recent focus in somebody I hold dear is drawing closer, so as a result I'm starting to push back on using the computer. I will be gaming from time to time but not enough to contribute here. I also want to add, I have watched the drama rate incline which is ridiculous. It's placed additional stress which I'm sure most of you have seen throughout the last 3-4 months. I just want you guys to know, nothing will be truly worked out in a fashion of hate. I think I can speak for some of you here. Work it out. Don't act hostile towards each other.

Anyways, I made it official at the end of our Discord staff meeting. Effective after I post this, my hiatus begins. Thank you all for making the opportunity possible. It's been a pleasure playing, contributing, serving, and most of all, working with you guys here. When I shall return completely, time cannot truly tell. But I can say this, if you ever want to talk I will be there. Need advice? I will be there.

I love you all. Once again, thank you for making this opportunity possible. Until next time,

Derek

                    Announcements / Cracking Down on "Cheaters"
                    « Last post by derek01 on August 13, 2016, 04:53:39 pm »
                    Recently I have gone through our anti-cheat system wondering if we had any detections lately, and sure enough there were.

                    Following Valve and their attempts to stop cheating on secure servers, we have implemented a system about 12-14 months ago that will be harsher on certain detections. CVar Manipulation and Clientside Lua Execution are overwhelmingly common, even together with detections. Any sight of our AC giving you an auto-kick warning will be logged so that Darkstorm Leadership can investigate this later.

                    All bans that are related to you getting hit by our Anti-Cheat system will be labeled with the following reason: Player Convicted | Cheats Detected in System

                    This follows a bit of a similar format with VAC.

                    So please do note, we will be hitting the logs more often to see who's been up to no-good as far as illegal scripts and such.
