I am TwoEagles, one of the new Ladder Server Moderators. Many of you already know me, many probably do not... yet!
I tend to read this forum a lot more than I post. Anyways, a bit of intro about me: I am in an international clan with members on 4 continents, a ManiaZones Mod for the USA, ESL Admin, and have recently started a 0k - 60k server which I hope to have on dedi soon, (with challenging and fun-to-drive custom maps, more as training for the higher level servers) with all the toys and perks, but it seems to be taking some time to get everything in order. I take this responsibility seriously, but I do not take myself seriously, since I prefer to see the humor in things, and optimistic that people here just want to have fun together.
I can see this discussion and debates already have begun, but don't worry too much about things, please. As long as the servers meet the listed rules, there will be no problems with them. We are players the same as everyone else; fun-loving, hard-driving individuals who enjoy the same things as the rest of the community. I have reviewed dozens of servers already, and have yet to find one in violation of the rules listed. If there are any questions, comments, or other ideas you may have or wish to ask, my login is twoeagles, in-game, the same as ManiaZones, and here. Rest assured that none of the Ladder Server Mods would arbitrarily close a server, and if they should have to close one for valid cause, it can be restored simply by adhering to the rule(s) it was closed for and sending an in-game message to the Mod that closed it. They would then review, and reopen it. Any rules that are still misunderstood will obviously be clarified by Nadeo before action is taken, but, quite simply, I don't think that there are any that are really not that clear at this point. Experienced players know what to look for, and know what type of maps and server they are looking at, and the rules are very simple. GGA & A++
