[UPDATE] Donation Matching (up to $250)!

The same lovely fellow who asked me to let them remain anonymous last year has once again pledged to match any and all donations made during this drive up to a maximum of $250! So, get to donatin' :)

tl;dr

We need monies to fill the coffers again, and potentially get us some spiffy new stuff for the server (eg an SSD) if all goes well! Just go down and check out the "How to Donate" section :)

General Information

It's that time once again for the Annual TLD Donation Drive! Well, actually, it was 'time' about 6 months ago, but it kept getting put off due to one reason or another. At first, I just decided I wanted to wait until it was not so close to the winter Holidays, as people said last year that they were fresh out of moneys due to present-buying and the like. Since then, it's mostly just been a mixture of not feeling up to writing up the thread and running it and, when I did feel up to it, it completely slipping my mind.


The fact it's taken me so long to do the drive is not a good thing, either, as we are, funding-wise, the most in need of donations we've ever been. Rather than just being low on funds, we're actually at a point where I've been paying out of pocket the last few months, so that tells ya something :P As amazingly generous as people tend to be during the drives, we get 'normal' donations so rarely that I literally don't think we received more than one since the previous drive. There were actually a few people who asked when I'd be running the next drive, and I told those people (a) it would be soon, and that (b) they should feel free to donate it whenever they'd like, and I would include them in the listing once the thread was made and also in any raffles that were done. Despite that, a grand total of 0 of those people followed through XD So, that all said, here we are!


For anyone interested in details on the previous donation drives, you can check out the Fourth Donation Drive, Third Donation Drive, second Donation Drive, and/or the first Donation Drive! If you're curious what types of things the donations we get do go towards, here's a brief rundown:

  • Necessities:
    • Server rent costs, software licenses such as TCAdmin (our server management control panel)
    • repairing stuff when things break
  • Server improvement:
    • Commissioning plugin authors to write/edit/improve plugins for us
    • Upgrading hardware, whether to make things run more smoothly or to allow us to host host more gameservers on the same machine we use now.
  • Emergencies:
    • When things break, we have to replace whatever it is that breaks, and being able to do so without first running another donation drive means we can get things going again sooner rather than later.

    How to Donate

    • You can send your donation through PayPal directly to jeffsugar AT gmail DOT com, by visiting our donation page, or by using one of the fancy buttons below:
      Make a Donation:
      Donate Monthly via Subscription:
    • You can send a check or money order or cash to my address, if that floats your boat. Address available upon PM'd request.
    • Some other way I haven't thought of?

    I'll be keeping an ongoing list of donors to give credit where credit's due. If you don't want yourself mentioned, please mention such. Additionally, I'll be omitting the donation amount per person by default, so if you want it mentioned, you'll need to tell me

    Thanks to the Donors Thus Far! (Donor List)

    Note: I am strongly considering giving some kind of incentive for donating, but I'm not sure how I'd handle it just yet. Don't worry about missing out, though! No matter when you donate, bet it tomorrow or 2 weeks from now, you will be included in said incentive.

As Spaced first pointed out on the forums, everything Battle.net related has been hackaroonied. This means all e-mail addresses, answers to security questions, enough info to compromise mobile authenticators, and encrypted passwords.

So, basically: CHANGE YOUR BNET PASSWORDS IN ORDER TO PROTECT YOURSELVES! Make sure you DON'T CHANGE IT TO ANYTHING YOU USE ELSEWHERE just in case there's another exploit around the corner. And, of course, DELIST any mobile authenticators you use and add a different one.

If you're the type that wants links to reliable sources before going all out changing your passwords (and you should be!), here's an article on Forbes and the official statement from Blizzard.

I realize this isn't really in the scope of what is usually put in TLD announcements, but this seemed too important not to address. Even if only one or two of you get the info here first, then it was worth doing.

Good luck!

ps. If you have any questions that you feel we can help with, or even if you just want to discuss the situation, feel free to post in the thread on the forums linked below and we'll do what I can to give you a hand.

General Information

It's that time once again for the Annual TLD Donation Drive! Well, actually, it was 'time' about 4 months ago, but it kept getting put off due to one reason or another, including the fact that I moved recently. We are, funding-wise, probably the most in need of donations we've ever been. While people tend to be amazingly generous during the drives, we get 'normal' donations so rarely that I don't even remember the last one we got :( Between that, and how long it has been since the last drive, I've even been paying for some of the stuff out of pocket the last few months so things could stay on course. For anyone interested in details on the previous donation drives, you can check out the Third Donation Drive, second Donation Drive, and/or the first Donation Drive!

I kept putting off writing this because I hoped Valve would get the issue fixed within a day or so like they usually do, but it would seem that they're having issues fixing it. I'm sure many of you have noticed some weeeeird shit going on when you've played in TLD since the Manniversary update. These things include, but are not limited to:

  • Repeated (and seemingly random) server crashes
  • Things clipping through stuff they shouldn't be
  • Invisible walls randomly appearing that prevent play until the server is restarted

We've gotten a lot of messages about this, and while we'd certainly rather get too many messages than have nobody say anything, I wanted to make this post (which will, once I'm done, be mirrored to the forums, front page, and the steam group) explaining that we are aware of it and there's absolutely nothing we can do until Valve fixes it. Try to make the best of things in the mean time :(

Your loving 'troos,
Atreus

Hey Lions friends and regulars :D I've finally begun to publicize my project, tf2toolbox.com. You can read about it below. Hope you guys find it useful :) The thread for it on the SteamPowered User Forums can be found here.

TF2Toolbox.com


From my personal experience trading and crafting metal, I've found two problems that I wish some tool could solve for me. One was having to look through my backpack and pick out things I wanted to trade, and then write it all up manually. Another was filtering out what things I wanted to craft into metal without sorting my backpack in TF2. I think I've addressed both these issues!

I hope all the TF2 item-loving people here find this tool useful. I would enjoy hearing any feedback/suggestions as well. Thanks!

First, a short version: DO NOT GO TO ANY LINK THAT CONTAINS 'TF2B.CO.CC'.

The details: There is apparently a phishing attempt going around related to 'tf2b.co.cc' (Note that's different than tf2b.com) which uses a Java payload to download and run an executable which steals everything in your backpack. Be smart, be safe. I've purposefully left the two mentions of it in this post unlinkified. I have not visited it myself, even to investigate, because I'd rather be safe than sorry.

If you have NoScript, you're safe from this as long as you leave the site unwhitelisted.

If you don't, GO GET IT! It takes some normal browsing before you have your whitelist base setup, but once you do, it's absolutely wonderful and amazingly useful. I can't recommend it enough.

I've put notices about this on Twitter and Steam (TLD & TLF) as well. There's some additional info on the steam forums, here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1580639&page=12#168

"The website uses a Java applet to load a Windows (PE) executable onto your computer and run it. I've pulled the executable to bits, and it's a little frightening. It was made by a user called 'tk2011' and was originally called SteamStealer."

Update: Here's some more information from the Steam forums from a knowledgable fellow named AzuiSleet: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1580639&page=12#174

This program does not use the Steamworks API, it's simply a keylogger that: kills steam, deletes the clientreg blob (to force the user to do a full sign on), and keylogs their username/password. If his items disappeared, it's because the attacker logged in as him and took his items. He'll have to contact Steam support.

I'll update this as more info becomes available.

After getting several IMs, e-mails, and even texts, it appears that an issue has come up and needs to be addressed. I'm personally shocked that it does, because I thought we were all either grown-ups, or at least somewhat mature people here, but apparently that's not the case.

We have rules here at TLD, and those rules apply to all the servers, game servers and IRC alike. Furthermore, they apply to everyone; Lions, Regulars, or even people that just join us once in a blue moon. If you don't like the rules, pardon my french, but you can get the fuck out.

Lately in IRC, people have been dropping the word 'faggot' like it's some funny thing, and then giving their excuses for why they should be able to use it. The bottom line is this, it's against our rules, and you will not use it while in any of our servers. Absolutely no variation of the word will be tolerated. If you don't like that, feel it's unfair, or think you have the right to say whatever you want in the server, then feel free to hit the disconnect button, and not join us in IRC. From this point forward, people will start getting banned for it. The kind of language isn't welcome on TLD, never has, and never will.

Also, we understand not all personalities mesh, and that people may rub other people the wrong way. Get over it. There are ways to block people in every single medium of communication. People need to quit going out of the way to be extreme assholes to people they don't like. If you don't like someone either tell them directly to their face in private, ignore them completely, or just shut the fuck up about it. We don't like drama here, and if people insist on causing it over petty garbage, then once again, they can just leave. People join IRC/TF2/TLD games to chat and have fun, not to listen to why X hates Y and why they think they should die in a fire.

The bullshit ends now people, if you're not capable of acting like a somewhat decent human being, then leave, because we don't want it here.

tl;dr - The rules are there for a reason, they're non-negotiable, and no one is exempt from them. Keep breaking them, and you're no longer welcome here.

Thanks,
The Management

Update as of 9.27.10
Things have gone well with the drive so far, and an up to date breakdown of the donations is still available in the forum thread.
General Information

Things are a-changin' (in a good way), fellows! However, awesomeness is not generally free :v I'm proud, though, that we only have to do these about one a year. In fact, it's been almost a year since the last Donation Drive, and more than two since the first Donation Drive! Chances are that although we may have enough money left in the account to cover all of the coming plugins, server manager, etc, I'd feel better if we're sure we have enough while also having ample still in reserve for emergencies. Better to do this stuff now than when we're hard up for time during an emergency :v What follows is the long explanation of what's going on. After that, is the short version! Take your pick.

This is Why We Can't Can Have Nice Things

So, there are two main things I'm wanting us to have! The first is a new Server Manager application for use on the server, and the other is an array of plugins which will improve the server in many ways. First: The server manager, called TCAdmin. This is something that I already have installed, as I didn't want to raise the money for it and then hate it -- Currently, we're on the 20 day trial. It's about $150 for the first year, and $120 every subsequent year -- a pretty good deal. What are the advantages of TCAdmin? It is beneficial for everyone involved, whether you are a pubbie or an admin. I'll go ahead and list the main two benefits:

  • For myself and the rest of the TLD staff, it means game updates will be much thing to manage: I can set up anyone I want or need to be able to update the server through an easy to use web interface! There are plenty of other actions available, too, but the update function is the big one. Also, for those unaware, the only way to update the server before was for me to remote in and manually update it myself, which was a pain if I was busy, asleep, or not home.
  • For players, it means faster restart times in the event of a server crash - potentially restarting the server within 3 seconds of a crash.
Second: The Plugins!
  • The one which is already in the works is an updated version of the language "filter", for lack of a better name. As most of you should know by now, I installed a plugin a while back to lighten the admins workloads which catches the short array of words which we don't allow, and forces a special version of the MOTD onto their screen. If they do it 3 times, they get an hour ban. What I really want, though, is for those 3 strikes to be persistent through maps. You see, right now, if someone triggers the plugin twice, and then twice the next map, and so on, the plugin itself won't punish them. This revamped version will not only be coded much better, but allow for the persistent strikes, and allow me to set it to "forgive" strikes over time (eg 1 per week). As a bonus perk, it will replace our way outdated Clantag checker as well and act as a two-in-one plugin.
  • The second set of modifications are fairly straightforward, but quite helpful. They include, but are not limited to, adding the following features:
    • List all current nominations
    • De-nominate (plus admin function to remove the nomination)
    • De-RTV (plus an admin function to remove the RTV)
    • And a few others I can't seem to recall offhand
  • And lastly, the most important of them is the Nominations Categories plugin. This will transform our nomination list with a huge amount of pages into a neat, orderly list of categories to choose from. Some examples would be "Control Point (Push) / Control Point (Attack/Defend) / CTF (Standard) / CTF (Attack/Defend)", and so on. This has been on the list of plugins to get for ages, but it just never happened in the past.
There are some other features I'd like to have done, but those are the ones that are actually on the docket right now. The person I have working on the plugins is a good guy, and he's doing the plugins before we pay him, since he trusts me as well. The price is fair, and this isn't something I could code myself anyway.



Also, for anyone wondering why we do drives instead of relying on trickle donations as you'd expect is that no donations seem to ever come in unless we are actually doing a drive. Quite literally, I don't think there has been even one since the last drive that I can recall offhand. It's true that I don't specifically request them from people, and that when asked if we need donations, I say "We don't have any outstanding bills we can't cover, so no, we don't technically need any. However, every bit helps for the future and will be put away for safe keeping!" However, that's meant to be truthful, not drive them away (see how punny I was? "Drive" them away :v)

Short Version

We need monies to get awesome things which add functionality to the server and make everyone's lives easier. Please donate :)

How to Donate

  • You can paypal to jeffsugar AT gmail DOT com (preferred)
    • Note: If you have a credit/debit card but no paypal, you can donate directly using the following button:
  • You can send a check or money order or cash to my address, if that floats your boat. Address available upon PM'd request.
  • Some other way I haven't thought of?
I'll be keeping an ongoing list of donors to give credit where credit's due. If you don't want yourself mentioned, please mention such. Additionally, I'll be omitting the donation amount per person by default, so if you want it mentioned, you'll need to tell me

Thanks to the Donors Thus Far!

So, I finally went ahead and made a forum for the threads which accompany news posts to be in. I went ahead and moved all the threads which were linked in news posts into it, so people don't have to rely on stickies and so things are easier for me. I may have missed stuff from before we finally got a front page, though. If you notice a thread that should probably be in here, please either post about it here or report the post!

In other news, you should join us in IRC. Yes, you! At the time of writing, we've got 40 people in there, and you would make a great addition! I'll address some potential pitfalls for reasons you may be thinking you won't, in fact, join:

  • I don't know how to use IRC!

    • That's okay! We have a super awesome yummy guide written up. Just click "IRC" at the top of the page!
  • What's the point of IRC? I can talk to people on Steam and stuff...

    • That's asked a lot, actually. You have to realize that IRC is something where you can talk to anyone that's in there all that you'd like anytime you'd like. If you're like most of us, it means that anytime your PC isn't off, you might as well be signed on! IRC isn't like other mediums, or Steam Chats -- you can idle, chat, read, or whatever you'd like! And, you can leave messages for people (or vice versa) really easily, so people can get back to each other without playing IM tag. Most of all, IRC is where I tend to announce almost all new developments or changes to the server before anywhere else gets it.
  • What can I do with TLD's IRC that I can't otherwise do?

    • Let's see... We have a trivia bot (Thanks CyberMonk!), a repository of various hilarious quotes from throughout the channel's history, and plenty of other enjoyable activities to partake in as well. And, starting soon, you'll be able to interact with the server from within IRC! Want to see who's in there, or the next map? Want to say hi to the fair denizens of the server? Chances are, assuming it's not abused, you'll be able to!
  • Anything else I should know?

    • Yes, in fact! If you're in IRC, it's really really easy to get hold of an admin for dealing with someone in the server, getting an event sent out, or anything like that. Anyone ops in the channel (signified by a @ before their name) are admins.
So, come, join chat, enjoy! Ciao :)

Hope you enjoyed the April Fools joke :) Now, I have real news for you! The Lions now have a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 server! Please thank EvilMaverick for his generosity -- he's footing the entire bill each month! He's been offered compensation, but says he wants none but to see your shining, wiggly faces play on said server :) What a sexy nice guy!

>:3 The Lions Den #3: Mortar Madness & C4 Sadness [USA-LA] (Battlefield: Bad Company 2)
Since there's no way to add favorites manually, just filter for ">:3" and it will come up! Then, you can add it forever and ever :)

We've been doing some thinking here in the admin forum, and we've decided it would be best for the community if we go ahead and change Server #2 over to a 24/7 OrangeX setup with Instant Respawn. Many servers have had great success with this, and as you know, I love OrangeX maps more than any other, with CP Push maps being a close second. I figure we can also run a different mod every day of the week, with mondays being instagib, for example!

These changes will take effect as of tomorrow, April 2nd.

Hope you guys approve, and enjoy!

Note: this is an excerpt of the actual thread. What follows is the intro, and the info on what the shirts look like.

Okay, so the way this is working is that we have a poll and discussion going in thread, and actual orders are going to Ozmodiar. Voting in the thread means making a financial commitment to purchasing at least one Lion shirt. You can vote without concurrently sending your order to Ozmodiar, but it does still mean that we will be expecting an order of some sort from you. Anyone who votes MUST ALSO REPLY to this thread so that we may at least attempt to keep track of who's participating and for how many shirts each. Please state your vote in the post, preferably using one of the easycopy things below. If, as mentioned above, you're not yet submitting your final order to Ozmodiar, feel free to use the "unsure" version of the easycopy and edit it once you've made up your mind.

We will be ordering the shirts before receiving the money, but they won't be sent to you until moneys are received. It would suck to have extra shirts, unpaid for, with nowhere to go, so there will be repercussions for any who commit to buying to the point of ordering but bail out later on

Okay, so, what will the shirts LOOK LIKE?


Light - Sand, by default. Though, you can have other non-black color shirts (minimum of 6 needed to order):Dark - Black, by default. Though, you can have other dark-colours (minimum of 8 needed to order):

The link below (or the title link) will take you to the thread with more information and how to order

Greetings Lions, Friends, Regulars!

Basically, for reasons which you can read in this post, we've had to change the IP address of all TLD servers. In an attempt to notify as many of you fellows as possible, I have been and will continue to post news in all the places we usually do so.

Why wouldn't your favorites just update automatically, you ask? Without getting too technical, the subdomain "games.dongues.net" that I have always encouraged you guys to use DOES always point to the proper place, and is already working with the new location of the server. However, when you enter that address into TF2 in favorites, it stores ONLY the current IP, not the "games.dongues.net", so it only holds the old information.

You now have a few ways you can get to TLD, which I'll mention in most preferable to least:

  • You can make an alias that always points to the latest info for TLD, which is totally futureproof. It's the first tip in the thread, titled "Connect to Lions Server Easily"
  • You can add the new IP to your favorites either by entering "games.dongues.net:27015" or "96.44.130.2:27015" - when adding to favorites it means the same thing anyway!
  • You can manually connect through the console using "games.dongues.net:27015" or "96.44.130.2:27015".

That's all for now -- I'm going to go ahead and link this everywhere I can. I have also left a 4-slot, locked dummy server up on the old IP so that anyone who has it bookmarked can see what the new IP is. Any assistance you can give spreading the word to others who may have missed the notices about the move, never seen the forums, etc, etc is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, comments, etc, please feel free to reply here or contact me elsewhere if it's more time sensitive.

Oh, and if you believe you can simplify the examples for connecting above any, feel free to let me know. I want this to be as accessible as possible.

Edit/Update: This has been resolved, and the server is back up and running. The original text is below

As a followup to the previous post, we've now identified the problem and are attempting to solve it. We have some donation funds leftover from last time, but we need additional donations to cover all the parts and supply some more fallback for the next time something happens. I'm too lazy at the moment to convert the thread on this over to HTML from BBCode at the moment, so please visit the thread either by clicking the title of this post or by clicking here. I'll likely convert it over later tonight or tomorrow

I've also put notices on Twitter, IRC, The Forums, and The Steam Groups' Announcement Pages. Hopefully everyone'll see one of them.

How to Donate

  • You can paypal to jeffsugar AT gmail DOT com (preferred)
  • If you have a credit/debit card but no paypal, you can donate directly using the big donate link just below this list. It's hard to miss, as it's big and yellow and says "DONATE" :v
  • You can send a check or money order or cash to my address, if that floats your boat. Address available upon PM'd request.
  • Some other way I haven't thought of?



9.25.09

Yes, the server is down.

Yes, the server is down. The drive the operating system was on died, and we're trying to recover what we can from it. The drive that has the actual TF2 server info and such is fine. It'll be up as soon as we can get the data and reinstall the OS.

I've also put notices on Twitter, IRC, The Forums, and The Steam Groups' Announcement Pages. I received many messages asking what's up, so I figured I should put it here as well. That's 6 places, and almost all of them link to each other in one way or another. Hopefully everyone'll see one of them.


Here is a copy of what i posted on the steam forums, where quite a few are already supporting the idea including some high-profile members of the TF/Steam community. I'd like you guys to help out too, if you're willing! You can read here or in the thread on the STEAM forums and then please reply there supporting it :)

The Post

Not quite sure how to start off this post, because the concept of this suggestion is rather basic in nature. Logging has been implemented in every major program that includes chat that I can think of that I've ever used at this point, except Steam. Whether it's fully rich text, or plain text, or some other wacky method, logging is a good idea to have in a program.

Now, when discussing finally posting a thread about this (as well as one other thread, which I will post later) with Richard_Eid, he mentioned the largest issue would likely be that it would take a while to design a log viewer for the logs. But, to be quite honest, the people who want logging most likely wouldn't require a manager/viewer to start. Even with mIRC, the log viewer just allows a listing of the directory and you choose a file. Most people, including me, go straight to the logs folder and pick out what they want. Therefore, while a log viewer would be nice, it is worth forgoing one in order to have some kind of logging functionality in Steam. Heck, there could be a button in steam to just open to the logs folder and let people go from there.

Another potential issue that I discussed with Rich was the naming scheme for files, since people change their display names all the time. This can be solved by a variety of naming schemes, all leading back to the communityid of the person. I could suggest a lot of different solutions to this, but I'll just list the one that sounds nicest to me:

  • Store all logs from a person in a folder that has their Community ID (eg 76561197983340435 for Richard_Eid). This would allow future proofing for a log viewer at some point, that could read the community ID and get a name from it.
  • All text files inside could be labeled starting with a timestamp of when the conversation started (and written when the steam window is closed, or periodically, or just one text file per day -- with that last one being the best, probably)
  • After the timestamp could perhaps be their display name at the time, stripped of illegal file/folder name characters such as ":". This would let you search for someone by a name, if you wanted. If not, you could at least do an in-file search for the display name
  • So, to recap: At the bare minimum, a collection of log files timestamped for each day or per session inside of a folder with their community ID. A person could even write a third party viewer until you guys got around to writing one.
  • That's really it. I can't imagine it would be that hard to dump text to a /logs/communityid/TIMESTAMP.txt file.

I could go further with this post, but I think I've been more than long-winded enough already. Hopefully others will support this, and we can get it done. Compared to something as giant as the Comments system, this seems like it should be fairly simple to implement.

Alright, so I'm finally putting something newsworthy on the front page by crossposting from the forums 8) I'm so cool. Anyways, see the following:

Long Version

Ok, so here's the background. As you've probably noticed, we've been having issues lately with severe lag. We've also had some crashes, but those are a result of TF2 and not us. The lag, however, is local. It's something with the physical machine or connection at the data center. That's the downside to a colocated box: you want to fix it, you pay :v There's a catch, though: we're not quite sure what's wrong, so we need some spare parts and such to swap out and test. It's not very expensive compared to how much we'd have needed if not for Kate or if we'd been hosting with GameServers, though.

So, while I don't like making threads like this (asking for donations makes me feel not good), those who would normally donate have certainly saved a lot over the past year since the last donation thread. In that time, quite a few people have offered to donate. I was honest in response: "We don't need any right now, but anything you donate will certainly go towards the server" -- Unfortunately, that resulted in the majority not winding up doing the donations, so currently we are in need of monies!

I don't have a "goal" amount at the moment, for a few reasons. Firstly, we're going with the most likely causes first. How much money we need/use in the end will depend entirely upon what winds up fixing it. It could be sub-$100 or it could be much more than that.

Either way, anything you can give is appreciated so that we're not paying out of pocket to fix it. If we wind up with extra, I will hold it for next time or be willing to refund partial donations for whatever's not used -- whatever you want.

Short Version

We need monies to fix things. Please donate :v I plan to keep an ongoing list of names and amounts donated to give credit where credit's due. If you don't want yourself mentioned or don't want the amount mentioned, please mention such.

How to Donate

  • You can paypal to jeffsugar AT gmail DOT com (preferred)
  • You can send a check or money order or cash to my address, if that floats your boat. Address available upon PM'd request.
  • Some other way I haven't thought of?
