    I have a little question for everyone. A competition, if you will. Whomever answers correctly will be granted admin on the server all day Friday. You can change map, make other people explode, generally have some fun :) I suggest you read this next part very carefully. Here is how it works. If you think you have the answer to my question, send me a pm w/ your Steam id. You may only answer once. It is in your best interest to not share the answer. The fewer people who get this correct, the fewer people there are to challenge your powers comes Friday.

    This is meant to be a game, a fun diversion. And for all you new guys + lurkers, a means to test your knowledge a bit. Obviously you can't ban people or change server settings ;) I will be posting a hint every single night until week's end. And again, the reward goes to everyone who guesses correctly. So conspire and share at your own risk.

    Question
    Who provides us w/ this wonderful community?

    Hints
    1. There is a 50% chance this person is me in disguise. There is a 30% chance this person is me not in disguise.
    2. This person is among the first 500 users.
    3. This person is not a moderator.
    4. The user is a moderator, in the same way that a square is a rectangle.
    5. He holds multiple positions in the top 7 stats.

    Answer
    The answer my friends, is the one and only drpepper. Yes I mean the user not the soda ;) He foots the bill for pretty much everything around here, and we owe him a huge debt. Grats to everyone who guessed correctly. Or even managed to give me a proper steam id :p I will be updating the servers shortly, and you can reign terror upon everyone all weekend :D

    No catch. Answer my question correctly and get server admin for a whole day. However, in the interest of competition, I should probly lock this thread. Edit 1: What the heck. Discuss here if you so choose.

    the question is kinda vague...
    being that absolute admin chaos would be hilarious...im going to dump my thought process into this thread

    Individual People:
    Creator of Steam Group: Immortal
    Provides the forums: Drpepper
    Other influential people: Ryodan (chat logger), Djive (does...art things, refer to site logo as example)

    On a more broad scale:
    Steam: Provided the starting point
    Hostgator: Would assume they provide the webspace as drpepper referred them

    Personally I suspect its something lame like "everyone"

    Posted clue #4. I'm quite surprised at how few people have tried to answer thus far :( And of those who did, most failed to meet the simple requirement of providing me a Steam id, or even knowing what a Steam identification number is. Oh well. For the 1 or 2 people who might get this correct, enjoy yourself on Friday :)

    Just one day left! Though I have learned an important lesson. The power of server admin doesn't hold the sway that it used to :mellow:

    I think it would hold more sway if it was on a server that had a steady player base ;) Try again in six months (hoping our servers are big by then...)
