General Discussion / Retired Staff Rank
« Last post by Tatsumi on August 19, 2018, 07:48:37 PM »
I've started building again on the server casually and noticed that I don't have my retired staff rank. If possible I would like to have the rank back or otherwise be told why it was taken away (I suppose it was just from server role issues since I was told someone else lost theirs). Thank you and I hope to build with you all in game.

General Discussion / Farewell
« Last post by Vij on August 14, 2018, 08:09:10 PM »
Hey everyone. I've been doing some thinking and I don't really want to be associated with this server anymore. I don't like how certain people have been treating me recently here because of what I identify as. I mean nothing wrong to most of the people here, I've met some really nice people here but I think I need a long break from this place. I'll leave the door open just in case I ever change my mind about you all. But I'm certain I won't be coming back for a long time.

Be sure to be nice to each other, y'know? And also don't manipulate anyone either. If anyone wants to talk to me PM me on Steam and I'll give you my discord.

Also be sure to get someone to make those crazy ramps.

I love you all and farewell.

General Discussion / Re: Temporary Leave of Absence(Darkstorm Build)

I hope that you will get over the manic depression that you have been dealing with...
I have depression too but its a different kind.
Its a family-type of depression, There 2 types of it.
One type is that whenever I get yelled at/hit by my sister (Who has BPD(Borderline Personality Disorder), My emotions kick in and I become anti-social for the duration of me being heavily depressed.
The other type is just natural...

The worst part is, I'm afraid that when I tell my feelings to my family, there're not gonna love me the same and my sister will take advantage of my depression.

I hope that you get the help you need and deserve...

I'm sorry to hear about this, Lego.  Take it easy over these two weeks though, you definitely deserve it.

Keep movin on lego, feel free to take breaks whenever. Being active 24/7 on build is pretty strenuous even without your headaches.

General Discussion / Temporary Leave of Absence(Darkstorm Build)
« Last post by Legomenon on August 06, 2018, 05:58:59 PM »
I'm going to be taking a leave of absence, not definite in length but approximately lasting a week to two, or less, depending on how long it takes to blow over. I will be on Garrys Mod from time to time but I won't be very active on the discord or on the server during this time.

Explanation: For those of you who don't know, I suffer from manic depression(which comes in periods or waves) and have since for a lot of my life. In the recent it's been because of some personal relationships, toxic thoughts and assumptions, and stress(some caused by being on the server too much). These last few days have kept me pretty down to the point of threatening suicide, which I have done before, except this time I am seeking proper help. While I have shared with some of you my occasional inabilities to cope with life as I see it, I would never make a deal out of sharing these issues publicly because of the insane memework this community strives for. So, as a result, try not to pine over this post because I want to punch my ticket early some days; The simplest thing you can do is recognize that I can't be active on Darkstorm right now, and give me a little space.

No, I am not suicidal because of Darkstorm(The reasons are personal and I would rather not share them publicly). Infact, I actually go to Darkstorm to take my mind off of the dark thoughts that constantly emerge, but they've worn on me to a point of exhaustion where being on Darkstorm is no longer fun nor distracting from those thoughts at this time; Thus, I feel as though I need to take some time off. I'd appreciate it if you left my channel in the discord alone for now, and while I would also really appreciate it if you didn't message me on steam or discord, if you feel like I absolutely and must come on to solve an issue, I would be more than willing to help. I will not always be able to reply to these (hopefully rare) requests with swiftness as I tend to.

I trust that the other portions of the staff team will staff when I'm not there. Please show them some love, we all have lives and staffing jobs on Darkstorm are as stressful as any.

Lastly, don't go blaming yourselves for anything I do, have done, or may do forwards. I really do appreciate this community and I don't think I could ever hold anything against it.

Darkstorm News / Darkstorm Remastered
« Last post by Linkjay on July 27, 2018, 06:02:55 AM »
We are now in the process of reforming and remastering the Darkstorm community.

First, we have made Zafiro a full permanent manager and developer. He know has access to our servers and will be carrying out some of our plans in-game.

Second, I am back to make top-level community changes and website changes. We will be changing things (for the better!) like the entire rule set and the rank hierarchy. We can already see a few changes like a new theme on the website, and staff ranks have been changed.

Staff ranks are now as follows.

  • Owner - The big man. Bryantdl7 is our only owner atm.
  • Manager - This is the new Co-Owner. Everyone who was Co-Owner, and is still active, is now here. It has as much access as Co-Owner did, but renamed. This rank is permanent and assigned by Owner.
  • Superadmin - This is admin but more trusted and more permissions, but not as much as manager.
  • Administrator - This is the step up from moderator and shows that you are competent and done well enough for a promotion.
  • Retired Staff - This is an admin-level position for any staff rank where the user is now inactive. Mods may get this, but is not guaranteed. It goes off of each user's performance.
  • Moderator - This is the rank assigned upon a successful mod application and is now the replacement for Tmod. You stay at this rank until management sees that you have done well enough.
  • Probation Admin - This is a temporary disciplinary rank for staff members that have committed a punishable act.

These ranks were designed to streamline the importance of each level of staff without being too complicated. These ranks will be pushed in-game in a timely manner.

Things will be changing for the better in Darkstorm as time goes on. This is simply the beginning.
