    This past weekend may have had quite a few hiccups, however the jam was still the biggest event since when I joined the site, and it was still able to run very smoothly even though the server was overloaded on the weekend. In addition, software can be very annoying, but the way the staff handled the metadata problem was done very professionally.
    I especially want to thank LeSwordfish for the way he organised and ran the jam, including running countless map tests. In addition, he was often the first to respond to any content made for the jam and responding to any questions people had about the event.

    So here's to the staff for all of their efforts over the past weekend, and indeed for all of their efforts over the years.

    First the servers being overloaded (including the TF2 servers), then a plugin that decided to go haywire. I'm still amazed at how fast things got back to a working state. I've seen forums where a similar problem would've taken the whole thing out for days, yet here's it's fixed within hours. Kudos to you.

    We can call the staff engineers, right? Server engineers, site engineers, community engineers, etc. So, you're all credit to team.

    Pinging @staff to make sure they see this in the mass reuploading, and also I forgot that @Geit is no longer a member of staff, but he deserves as much thanks as the rest of them, if not, more. Geit, you are a blessing to this site.

    For someone who isn't staff any more, Geit seems to be spending a lot of time this week fixing things.

    Which is good for us.

    Geit recently stepped down as official site staff. Think of this situation as some sort of cruel retirement gift.

    e: Ninja'd by a split second, wowza.

    Actually, I knew he used to be staff. Maybe I should have put "any more" after the isn't staff part to emphasize that.
