Hello everyone.

I feel like I need to address recent happenings in the community, so here goes.


SammyServers has been my baby for a very long time now. I have always been a major part of it, either by being a donating admin myself (6 years or so ago), or working my way up to co-owning and then inheriting the community for my own. It's been my second home for as long as I can remember, and I've loved every single minute of it, from the time I was in-game, jumping into little grates in zm_crocodile, or blowing stuff in gmod, or the likely many months of my time I've spent out of game developing, maintaining, or updating the servers. It's all been great.

I'll address various things below, so I apologise if the post feels slightly disjointed.

Some of my fondest memories include:
Spoiler: Toggle

Spoiler: Toggle

Spoiler: Toggle

and some rather awesome nostalgic threads:

viewtopic.php?f=38&t=6552 <- speaks for itself
viewtopic.php?f=38&t=5236 <- best forum feature I coded together
viewtopic.php?f=38&t=7911 <- fantastic addition to SS
viewtopic.php?f=50&t=6381 <- one of my favourite projects I've worked on
viewtopic.php?f=68&t=3018 <- another great project
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1892 <- see below
viewtopic.php?f=23&t=8919 <- this and the above few threads just show how many things we've added or changed based on community feedback

but there's so many more memories, and hopefully there'll be even more!

There's lots of things that I've done in SS, and I'm not without regrets, but those are minor in relation to everything we've done and accomplished together. My biggest regret, by far though, is opening TeamSpeak. Whilst it allowed people to socialise on a much easier and personal level, it could never be fully policed like the forums and servers, and thus, it quickly turned into an environment that newer players didn't like or enjoy, and simply avoided, and so it was generally populate by a few elitist individuals who felt they had some hold over the community. The way some of our staff and server admins treated people in there was absolutely ridiculous, and that ultimately led to the downfall in popularity of the servers. Of course, there were many other small things that contributed to this, but ultimately, the community caused it's own downfall, and the majority of those involved don't even realise the harm they've caused.

Removing Indigo I feel was still the best solution to the problems at the time. Whilst of course sometimes I missed the assistance, and the usefulness of having someone else who knew our setup as well as I did, I feel that things would have diminished even faster if she had been kept around. I'm not going to insult someone when they're gone, so that's all I'll say about that.

Up until this point, SammyServers has been a community led by individual(s), who hosted servers from funds donated by the community, and that has worked well for >5 years. Very shortly, things are going to change. The future of SammyServers is in the community's hands. The community is more than welcome to start up servers using our name, and advertising our website (assuming contacting me first). @MaldorLevr has started up the first server with our name which you can find on the portal and in the general servers list to the left.

The server box will shut down as soon as I've exhausted all funds we have left. I accumulated quite some excess funds which have kept the box alive for over a year. (If someone has a better solution for exhausting the $100 or so we have left, please let me know). The website will likely never go down for as long as I'm alive, as I'm the kind of guy who'll always have server hardware knocking about.

At this point, I'd like to thank each and everyone one of you for making the community what it is today. The community isn't dead, and hopefully it will continue growing.

Let's make 2013 the best year yet!

Yeah... This is really sad. I'm not crying. :'(.

It's been good guys, knowing each and everyone of you. I know the forums are still going to be up, but really, the servers that I know and love are dead.

Didn't play too much on the server, and some of the people on the forums, as Cherry has stated above, were kinda dickish at times when it was not called for, but it's still a little disappointing to see the first main community I joined on start to slow down to almost forum-only.

Instead of this being the end, I like to think of it as the start of a new Era.

I think I may be able to host a few server for us, depending on what you game you guys feel like.

I think maybe people need to work on shedding the idea of what SammyServers used to mean, namely GMOD and Zombie Master servers. What we are now is a community, only diminished by the loss of the servers in population flow. SS is still more than capable of becoming a friendly place for all sorts of gamers, people who are looking for Chivalry or Halo groups, we don't need to stick to our heritage and PC base. I haven't played much of GMOD in a year but I'm still here because I like the community and I love being around as a sort of in-house tech specialist.

We can expand into an arts sections for those interested in writing and drawing and photoshop, like Ultra Lulz, or into a tech section for people that get off on overclocking CPUs. I'm not expecting people to want to branch away from gaming but it may make us more receptive overall. For everyone else consider opening a small server and inviting people in. Maybe make a weekly play group for a game you love, inviting others to enjoy it with you.

Everybody has something to offer the community and there's still alot of places we can go with this thing. Don't get too discouraged, folks.

I loved that guy. I remember me, ultra, and him made the pedobear shrine. It was one of the funniest things I have ever done on the server.

Hey, you guys remember HARBL? He was a good man, what a rotten way to get banned.

Edit: What about Orbitol?

One of my favorite memories was on SSMC when c00ter and I were derping around, trying to find something to do. I had recently built my house on top of the ice lake, close to where TITAN and Clock had been living, and decided to make a chicken farm because I kept starving like an asshole. I had close to 50 chickens in a small 8x8 area, with a double-chest filled with chicken eggs. I cannot remember who it was, but as soon as he had logged off the server, c00ter and I grabbed all the eggs we could, ran into his house, and threw the eggs everywhere- flooding his house with chickens. Alas, it all came to an end when the server crashed, (I wonder why.) and the three Gmod servers were severely lagging as a result. At the same moment, Griff_troy thought it'd be a great idea to stop the lag by spamming props in DarkRP in an effort to crash the server. The servers all got taken down for a while, and everyone got mad at me. Once the MC server came back up, I logged on to see someone had killed all of my chickens, my eggs were completely gone, and c00ter and I were permabanned shortly after. TITAN explained that it was all a joke, and it was unintentional to crash the server, so we were unbanned about a week or two later- right before the Mooshroom Trail Event, but the event never happened, sadly. Oh yeah, and my moderator status got removed.

And that was my life story.

Oh shit I forgot to add Uber to my list.

@coppertj Grands was an idiot. The stupid fuck lied to my face about stealing Augs as a banker. Decided to spectate and not a minute later did he unpocket the shipment.
