General Discussion / (Poll) Conceptual Staff Apps on Google Forms
« Last post by Legomenon on December 02, 2019, 12:49:37 PM »
This poll is set to run for 30 days. NOTE: This poll is entirely opinionated and does NOT determine how we will run our application system. I alone created this poll to attempt to accumulate feedback upon my curiosity on how the community and staff alike appreciates our application system. I'm really interested to see what people prefer.

Context: Our longest running system is here on the forums, and calls for a community vote on any applicant with over 25 hours and their eligibility for staff. As you may know, this is a polled system and all of these applications are public. After a duration of seven days, with at least a 75% acceptance requirement, the applicant is promoted to Moderator, and so on and so forth.

Recently, with the help of Bryant, I structured a Google Forms variant of the application. It retains the essential rules(25 hours, phone num, etc), but has some key differences. For instance:
- All responses are privatized.
- The community does not take part in the vote.
- Votes are also private, and staff/management reliant only.
- There is no time constraint.


This alternative system allows people to say whatever they feel is necessary to complete their app under the condition that the conclusion is made by staff/management alone. This will function as a relatively quick-and-easy application form for people who prefer to either privatize their information and reasoning, or are unable/unwilling to make a community poll on the forums.

Darkstorm News / Server Cleanup
« Last post by ☣☢Bryantdl7☢☣ on August 28, 2019, 07:58:24 PM »
As of 8/28/19 a large number of addons have been removed from the server. Most likely, a large number of the addons you enjoyed are included in this cleanup.

Why did you do this?
We all know that we have been having a good amount of lag lately. In order to narrow down the culprit, I have decided to take a fresh start on a lot of the higher performance addons, and simply add them in using more rigorous guidelines.

Where can I go to request an addon get added?
Please head over to our development page, located on https://github.com/Bryantdl7/darkstormdev/issues and open a new issue containing the following
- Reason you want the addon
- URL of the addon

What about other data on the server?
No other data on the server is being touched, such as maps, duplications, or props. We want everyone's hard work to not be lost.

Requests / Re: Overhauled Radial Menu
« Last post by Legomenon on August 01, 2019, 05:07:55 PM »
Re-appointing my vote from no to yes. Switching between tools when building mechanically will always be easier and evidently more convenient with the radial menu. This add-on is mostly about convenience(edit: ease of use), which I support.

Everyone would be taking a few shots, swapping weapons, shooting again, rinse and repeat

Kinda moot as I have quickswap binds for 2 guns already, all though anyone full tryhard could fast swap between anything without a menu.
