      You aren't getting any of the Mtn Dew I'm putting in it now.

  3. Going to have to argue the contrary. At the time the ban for that server was issued and from the limited amount of time I had been in that server (to find info on the bans), I had seen other things such as plans to have users create accounts to talk about the footrest situation (also saw it play out later in chat myself) and other plans of targeted harassment. Also the fact that private information and photos of people in the community were pinned in different rooms of the server as well with the specific intent of making fun of and belittling said users. Not everyone in the server was banned during that time from what I saw, only those who propagated the shit being talked about in there were punished, and a few of said banned people were unbanned after making an appeal. Regardless of if the server is different now, from personal experience, I'd have to respectfully disagree with the sentiment and say that their bans were justified.
  4. Good response, was afraid this drama was going to get more and more out of hand, but hopefully this can put all the drama to rest. Of course there's more stuff that could probably be added (like the threats and propaganda from you-know-who's server that you had posted in the original raffle) to make this statement more concise and complete, but I'm sure that that as well as some other stuff will be added as time goes on. Get some rest, you need it.
  5. When going through My Raffles, the numbered tabs and arrows only go up to a specific number rather than the total available. As seen in the 1st screenshot, the available tabs that are clickable go up to 64, when there are actually 66 total tabs, the last 2 being unable to be accessed aside from changing the URL to the page number. My guess as to the reasoning for it is most likely that any one category in the raffle section being limited to the amount of raffles you've made altogether (2,542 raffles published altogether; 64 pages with 40 raffles each comprises of 2,560 raffle slots). Cancelled raffles still show up in the My Raffles section but don't count towards the total raffles count, thus causing a runoff and pushing off an amount of raffles equivalent to the total raffles you've cancelled to inaccessible tabs. Seems more likely than it simply having a hard limit of 64 pages.
  6. Giant marshmallow, keeps eating cables, smells of raisins, has a fake horn but can still do magic somehow. I rate 8.3/10, not enough purple, deals with me any time I somehow break the website, he's a good horse Bront.
  7. Things that I've noticed for the time being that should probably be acknowledged, since I see no other forum with listings yet. On "The Hidden" mode on the Custom Server, the Hidden's ability to super jump is broken and unusable Consequently, there are a lot of maps in the listing where it is nearly impossible to win as the Hidden due to the jump being broken, such as the numerous high ledges on Sawmill Due to the "meta" of the Hidden gamemode (standing in a corner the whole game, preventing the Hidden from stabbing you while waiting for him to starve to death) and the opinion of the mode, it might be better to implement FF2 or VSH instead (if possible) Asking for community feedback publicly would probably be better regarding this Whenever the Custom server is full, there tends to be a lot of server-side lag This is most apparent on Stop That Tank TF2Ware is pretty much completely broken, you just go to the small starting map and kill people there with normal respawns the whole time Serious Server gets very laggy at times, making most hits not register and lag behind a few seconds Deathrun will sometimes give the error message regarding "could not find a valid Death", locking the current Death in his position the entire map
  8. Spy-cicle is an attempt at countering Spy's weakness, which can be neglected if you learn timing and movement. I say "attempt" because the Spy is the weakest class in the game. Razorback is a complete counter to Spy for the Sniper, who is the strongest class in the game. Allows you to completely ignore Spies, as they can only shoot you and your team can easily respond to that. Direct Hit one-shots light classes, destroys Heavies and Pyros, ruins Engineer buildings, is impossible to dodge at close-to-mid range, and can completely stuff out other Soldiers. Fast projectile speed essentially turns it into a hitscan weapon that is very easy to aim. It's called "The Direct S**t" and "The Best Melee Weapon" for a reason.
  9. If we're talking crutch items specifically... Scout: Crit-a-Cola, Sandman/Guillotine combo Soldier: Direct Hit Pyro: Reserve Shooter Demoman: Quickiebomb Launcher; Scotsman's Skullcutter Heavy: Pretty much nothing Engineer: Short Circuit Medic: Kritzkrieg (probably) Sniper: Darwin's Danger Shield; Razorback Spy: Spy-cicle
  10. Any of the following: Expensive items Some amazing form of art, words, interaction, or self-expression Having a cute avatar, colour, and/or emotes That's...really just it, apparently. From what I've seen, at least. For me though, any raffle is a good raffle as long as it isn't advertising an auction or trying to cause blatant drama.
  11. There's actually a good deal that can be said about just how stupid it is to allow auction advertisements in raffles, and many of them you've listed nicely above. The fact that all other forms of advertisement, including things such as puzzle raffles in addition to normal trading, not only makes allowing auction advertisements illogical but completely hypocritical. The reason for Jesse's poll ending with auctions being favored 2:1 (made a comment regarding that in that particular raffle) is that there tends to be 2-3x more open auctions at any given time than there are raffles (as of writing this, there are 345 auctions and 118 raffles). If it's simply to a game of numbers, auctions being favoured would almost always win, considering the vast majority of users only do things in their own self-interest, hence people wanting to make cheap advertisements for their own benefit in addition to simply joining raffles in a huge spree. If it was a decision given to the more regular rafflers of the site, I'm positive that the vote would've shifted in the other favor. And this brings me to the most basic of points... Raffles are made for generosity. Yeah, simple enough really. The point of raffling is to share with the world your items, your ideas, your thoughts and work, your own personal agenda. That sort of thing. It's out of an act of your own willingness and generosity that makes raffles what they are. By allowing auction advertisements, that idea is thrown out the window. Into a moving train. And its corpse is flattened and dropped off half a mile away and is rotting somewhere in the woods. Advertisements are simply a tool for personal gain, not generosity. It completely destroys the whole reasoning for raffling in the first place. Take into consideration that someone is capable of not only using dirt-cheap items in comparison to what they're advertising, they're also capable of spamming these raffles out for as much as their daily raffle limit allows, ultimately ending up with possibly dozens of raffles from only a single individual for the topic of a single auction. And before someone notes that "sharing your art is the same thing", no it isn't. This is not the same as someone showing some art they've made, a video they've done, or anything of the likes, as that's sharing it for others' enjoyment, appreciation, or feedback. Asking for people to subscribe to you for said video or ask for art commissions, however, would be a form of personal gain, and that is banned. So why auction advertisements, something else that fits under the same exact principle as asking for subs or anything of the likes, aren't also banned, I don't even know. So yes, as someone who makes a lot of raffles and auctions, I'd prefer if auction advertisements were removed. They're annoying, waste room, and in the words of Austin from ShoddyCast, they just make no goddamn sense. They could just be removed and that'd be that, but I'd imagine people complaining about "not being able to find your particular auction". If a person is patient, they would scroll through and briefly look at every auction page, which admittedly doesn't take much time. But a better way to implement such a thing would most likely be a better form of auction searching or sorting. That just brings into the issue of how to do that for the various categories (probably by the separation through value) and whether or not Geel even works on auctions. But yeah, that's something that can be talked about for another day.
