    I've converted my old Payload map, so you can actually see where to use hints, portals, etc. Will also talk about actual building techniques to help you optimize your map. Sunday June 20 at 5:00pm CDT/2200 GMT. Our U.S. server is 174.34.133.104:27015. Hope to see you there :)

    Interesting. I might just come. Someone remind on that day, or I'll forget.

    Came to listen but kept getting repeatedly kicked because I was sticky jumping while listening, someone walked over to me while I was doing it and died, it was clear what I was doing, so that's ridiculous to be kicked for that but I still could understand the mistake. Came back after being kicked and was going to continue to listen. Pretty damn offended, that was ridiculous. I was going to not sticky jump when I came back thinking I had missed some unannounced rule or something. I'm not a child and do not need to be treated as one on a gaming server.

    I stated at the very beginning, and several times after; just keep your hands off the trigger/mouse button. Alternatively, you could have gone spectator. I am genuinely sorry for your trouble, but I make zero exceptions for any disruptions. And on a positive note, those of you who could follow simple rules of not shooting, I'm glad you got some useful information out of the session :)

    I agree. I was whacking away at the cows to verify that they were not solid when somebody else came right underneath my homewrecker and got killed. I even apologized as quickly as I could, but was still kicked. It was obvious it wasn't intentional and even after an apology, getting kicked was quite offending.

    It wasn't obvious to me, since i can't see everyone at the same time. That said, try to understand that some people show up just for the sake of being annoying. And given that I issue multiple warnings about not attacking, it's easier to simply kick and be done with it. Hopefully you and McNugget aren't too jaded by the trouble-makers, and will show up for the next event :)

    Somebody care to share a demo of the event? I was out of town today and couldn't come.

    Yes but this was not mentioned at any point in the time frame I was there. Water under the bridge I suppose. But as an experienced server admin, you better explain yourself to everyone at said events in some form in the future, because that was pretty tyrannical. Expecting people to come in and instantly expect them to understand a rule that was not mentioned anywhere while they were in the server is pretty crazy.
