How to Enter
To Enter you are required to:
I am here writing to everyone that users any of Australian Gaming Network services will see upgrades and downtime over the fore coming holiday period. We are scheduling this to be in middle of the night to have the least impacting downtime but during this time we are moving our servers to a new powerful node as we require more space. The follow is our schedule and task list to perform this upgrade
1. Move all web services to new SSD based server
2. Move Garry's Mod server to new node for temporary holding
3. Uninstall Linux based container
4. Install Windows Server on game server node to allow for more customisable addons on the server (This also allows developers to easily create new content for you).
5. Transfer back the garry's mod server and configure it to Windows deployment
6. Ensure web transfer databases connect back to game server
7. A lot of background stuff
During these times we appreciate if you hold non important conversations until after the works are complete to Lewis, Spextic and Myself as if we are stuck answering questions that could wait it would intern keep the servers down for a longer period of time.
Just to note after the this upgrade is complete there will be no IP address change or anything of that nature we are simply fixing a system that cannot keep up to our requirements and causes to much maintenance.
REASON FOR UPGRADE: LOW DISK SPACE, CHANGE OF OPERATING SYSTEM
RESOLUTION TIME: 3 HOURS PER STAGE
SERVICE IMPACT TIME: 10-12 HOURS (ALL SERVICES)
EMERGENCY CONTACT: DISCORD OR STEAM PRIVATE MESSAGES
This thread is open for any questions regarding this. We are expecting to do this on the 26/27 this month
What I am writing about in this post is a current issue that needs to be dealt with. That is, toxicity.
In the simplest form, being toxic is just ruining other people's time on the servers. There has recently been just a huge influx of, mainly kids (do note, I, nor do any of the staff to my knowledge have anything against kids. Those like Purple and Zipz for example are great to surf with because they don't try and start issues) who are just incredibly rude, ignorant, sarcastic and honestly just stereotypical prebs, there's no other way to put it. I'm not going to name names because they know who they are.
This issue was made apparent thanks to one of these... toxic kids personally messaging me. Here's some context.
Toxicity unleashes into server. Server regulars react poorly (it's not hard to block communications guys, this could solve a lot, but because of the ratio of non-toxic to toxic, I figured this is worth the post). These people who start heaps of drama are faced with the consequences, and then complain they did nothing wrong and make out that they were the victim to their own games. I was very much abused by one for giving an hour ban for being an utter ass. I obviously wasn't affected by it, but that is not acceptable.
Let me get something straight. On behalf of all staff members. We are not your babysitters. We do not hate you we just dislike your attitude toward us and others, thus consequences must follow. Disturbance of the peace is breaking the rules. Maybe if we know you on a more personal level there is some leniency put in place, but favoritism is usually never the case. If you make a mistake, then you will be punished. We do not care that you think you did nothing wrong because if you really truly believe it you can just dispute the ban on the forums, that's why they're here, but you do not have the right to abuse us for doing our job.
I would like people to know I will actively be dealing with these sorts of situations. If there is anyone who thinks that they have been unfairly muted, gagged, kicked, or banned relating to/similarly to this issue, you can contact me on steam or via the forums PM's.
