  1. Next time you see me logged in to Discord please message me. We need to get you squared away with your existing account and then you should be good to go.
  2. I also seem to recall a certain LT voice screaming out: "Damnit Maday" as I've domed you plenty of times as well.
  3. MadCast was founded as Battlefield 2142 being the game we kicked everything off with. Lots of history with Battlefield around these parts. The last couple of Battlefields didn't really have much of a draw for me, but I can definitely feel it with this one.
  4. Hello again and welcome back! Purged from membership on 9/25/2019 due to inactivity. I will get your tag re-applied and get your permissions updated back to Full Membership. Again, Welcome Back!
  5. A whole new system for BF2042: Aspects from BF1942, Bad Company 2, BF3, and BF2042 that can be used to create custom modes, missions, rules, etc.
  6. I shall make myself available to answer any questions.

If someone is unable to attend a meeting then please provide the input in this thread as well.

  9. I need all who want to provide input on what they would like to see included on the League of Legends Landing page to schedule a time for as most that can attend and get this hashed out. If you can't make a meeting then at least get your input into this thread.

Consider the following ideas for ways that you can directly and positively impact the community; Wear your MadCast tags within your username in games whenever possible Hang out in a voice channel even if you're playing a solo game, and stream it if possible in case others want to watch Promote MadCast in the wild and invite others to share in our community Utilize the game roles feature in Discord to tag others and to get groups together quickly Invite the cool people you meet while gaming to our Discord server Research a Discord bot that you really like and present it to the admin team Encourage your friends to apply for Full Membership Attend as many events as you can and be supportive to whoever is in charge Organize and/or run an event for a widely accessible or free-to-play game Post often on the website forums and be active in the chat channels on Discord Create and/or bump existing recruiting threads we may have abroad Write how-to guides for any of the games you enjoy and share them on the website Write, or share your thoughts on, a gaming-themed article on the website Start hype discussions around an upcoming game you're excited for, or share a fun game that's new to you Interact with Full Member candidates and post in their comment threads Vote in the SFM elections each cycle after evaluating all the candidates Be an exemplary ambassador of the community regardless of what game you're playing Donate if you're capable, as all donations go toward the continuation of MadCast and it’s services.

  11. MadCast Gaming’s Terms of Full Membership ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For a Full Member to maintain their active status of being a Full Member within MadCast Gaming you are required to: - Log on and connect to an active voice Discord channel OR - Log into their account on MadCast’s website ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Failure to satisfy at least one of those options will result in your account permissions being adjusted to that of the Full Member - Inactive rank. Being a part of this community is more than filling checks and boxes. When you have advanced through the process of becoming a member here, we consider you to be a part of what makes MadCast what it is. A place that you can always call home. Do you want to contribute more to the community but not sure what to do or how to help? Head here for a few ideas!
  12. MadCast Associates: The folks in this group are not MadCast members. Folks in this group are considered guests and will be treated as such. MadCast Associates are treated as friends that are simply hanging out and should govern themselves accordingly. We love that people come to hang out here, even if they never join MadCast, so please don't be shy about hanging out and inviting others to do the same, but always remember that you are a guest in our community. On the website, MadCast Associates are fairly easy to spot because their forum names do not contain the title "MadCast:" preceding their names. MadCast Associates do not get avatars or signatures on the website, this privilege is reserved for Full Members and above. MadCast Candidates: Those in this group are not MadCast members but are undergoing candidacy periods to become MadCast members. Candidates (sometimes referred to as [C]s) are expected to demonstrate the qualities we expect of Full Members. This is a temporary role/rank as the process lasts up to 30 days (45 days if admins deem delay is warranted). Once the Candidacy period concludes, the individual either earns Full Member rank or is returned to the Associates rank. MadCast Full Members or FMs: This is the first level of actual membership in MadCast. Folks in this group have been through the Candidacy process successfully, and are now Full Members. Full Members have additional access and privileges on the website and Discord. The best way to describe FMs is to say that they "live" here. This is "their" house. Full Members on the website are clearly identifiable because of the presence of the title "MadCast:" preceding their names on the forums and Discord. e. FMs are considered the Rank and File members and the "voting bloc" of the community. Most major community decisions require FM approval, either directly or through their representatives, the SFMs. MadCast Full Members - Inactive: When a Full Member does not fulfill the Terms of Full Membership for any reason, they will be moved to Full Member - Inactive. A Full Member can remain in Inactive status for an indefinite amount of time; a perk of having successfully achieved Full Membership through MadCast’s Candidacy process. A Full Member Inactive can always return to Full Membership through a simple request process. MadCast Legendary Full Members or LFMs: The LFM (Legendary Full Member) rank exists to honor members who have made an enduring and timeless impact on the community. LFMs are designated by the Staff and Founders, and only given on an individual basis. No rubric defines a Legendary contribution, only the individuals themselves. MadCast Ranking Full Members or RFMs: This is the first rung of admins at MadCast. RFMs are the front-line admins of this community and operate most of the day-to-day administrative activities of this community. While they do a lot, their activities will become known to you more and more with the day-to-day experience of associating with our community and are outside the scope of this short explanation. Ranking Full Members are admins and should be treated as such. They have full authority to take actions to keep MadCast the quality place that it is. They are responsible for enforcing MadCast policies and accountable to their fellow admins to make proper policy enforcement actions. MadCast Senior Full Members or SFMs: The next rung of admins are the Senior Full Members (SFMs). SFMs are elected every four months by the FMs. To be considered for a vote, members must be a current RFM. A thread is put up for one week and all of the FMs vote to elect the SFMs. The SFMs are day-to-day admins and the main policy admins. SFMs are responsible for assisting in leading the community and administration as a whole. SFMs also have a unique role in the community: they are the only rank that votes to induct candidates to Full Members. MadCast Founders: There are only two MadCast Founders: Tort and Maday. The very name of MadCast is the conjoined parts of their actual surnames. One major defining difference is the tag. The Founder tag does not have a colon at the end of the tag. Since they are what made up MadCast it doesn't make sense to use a colon to signify a continuation. Both of them created the MadCast we all enjoy today, and still have the opportunity to guide and provide input to the community. Their activity may not be as consistent as some of our admins, but they interact and guide where possible. MadCast Staff: There is currently one Staff member: MadCast: Epic. Their job is not day-to-day, but rather long-term policy discussions. They are constant presences on the website and Discord. They interact with the community on a 1 and 1 basis commonly and are very accessible to those that want to talk to them. They engage with the SFMs to set the global course for the community in the long-term. They are involved in large projects, new projects, and generally expanding MadCast into new ventures. Please remember to work your way up the chain from RFM->SFM->Staff when you have an issue. We are all here to serve the community, but we all serve different functions. Everyone that is an admin here is trusted with knowing the difference between something they can handle and something that needs to go up the chain.
  13. Don't be toxic, and respect everyone you encounter. Do not use slurs of any kind. They are unwelcome here. Read the room for when certain humor or topics are acceptable. Respect your local laws. No discussion of illegal substances or activities anywhere within MadCast assets A reasonable amount of common courtesy and decency is expected of everyone. Understand you will meet people of various different forms and lifestyles. Lets be mature and accepting of those differences and focus on having great times playing games. That's what we're all here for.
  14. As we progress the community further into 2021 and beyond, we decided it was a good time to pause and reflect on what Full Membership means. Going through the process of a rigorous candidacy meant that you had earned your tags and subsequently your place in this family. As we look back and edit a good portion of our aging policy regarding FM Terms and detagging, we realized that this work should never truly expire, a sentiment that is driving the new philosophy in permanently removing the tag purging system due to inactivity. With that being said, we also felt it was unfair for those FMs whose tags had been taken due to inactivity in the past to have to go through candidacy again, while none of the currently tagged members would ever have to. So we'd like to welcome back any Full Members who wish to return to FM status. As long as you were in good standing when your tags were taken due to inactivity, then all you need to do is create a new thread in this forum section, and your tags will be restored back to active status. Once reinstated, you simply fall under the Terms of Full Membership as any normal tagged Full Member. We look forward to welcoming back all returning FMs, and any questions can be directed to SFMs or Staff.
  15. If you are here then we assume you have in interest in becoming a Full Member of MadCast Gaming. Here is a link to our current Terms of Full Membership. It's pretty simple. Just create a new thread within this forum section. It can be as simple or long winded as you would like. You just need to make a simple statement that you would like to apply for full membership. After, an admin will make a reply to your thread and give you some additional info on the Candidacy process and include a couple of contacts that can answer any additional questions. You can also fee free to ask any of those additional questions within your created thread for your application.
  16. Roger that. I shall get that implemented asap.
  17. Nice. Is that completed and what you'd like to use?
  18. Any updates on the progress of this?
  19. The gameplay.... of my if this is what pre-alpha looks like already.... oh my
  20. So many things looking fun and delicious. We'll see how the gameplay trailer does, but if this is a taste of what's there, then this could be good.
  21. In the wee hours of the night the switch was flipped and the website was moved to it's new home. From early looking over of things, one of the only victims that broke a little was the popular/follow MadCast box on the primary landing page (upper right section). Nearly identical resources and at half the cost. The Ledger and donation goal will be updated soon to also reflect the cost adjustments. There may be fragrance of maple syrup and bacon. This was expected and is normal.
  22. Sounds like you are accusing something of being one of them squinty eye trickery puzzles...
  23. I think you done been got good sir. The best of April Fools are the ones where you actually get some people fooled. Nevertheless, quite a bit happened in the years rather immediate of your deployment. Recent years have been rather calm going. Which was a nice rest from the various chaos, but we also find ourselves in spot where activity needs a healthy boost.
