First i want to wish u all the best for 2012! Happy new year!
Last weeks have been very turbulent for the dutch gather channel. We got a lot of complaints (not always correct) about admins and managers who abused power. Another a lot of players think of us as 'the ghost channel' because we have a group of players always on ventrilo (although we are not ghosting). Everybody is free to join our ventrilo server, as long as there is no ghosting and no trolling.
Then there is the loss of one of the most respected staff members of our channel: #Ntrr
Ntrr told me that he has other stuff on his mind these days and wont be able to spend
time playing and managing #cs.gather.nl. I just want to thank you for your work here and i can speak for all of us when i say that we hope to see you back on GN, better sooner than later.
Well, now to the good news! I have recruited new managers, all dedicated and experienced with gather-network:
If you have any problems feel free to send one of us a personal message on the site or contact us at irc #cs.gather.nl.help
We are also still recruiting dedicated admins so if you want to become part of our team join #cs.gather.nl.recruit
We are working on a #cs.gather.nl cup, so if you have any good ideas about it feel free to share them with us!
