  1. Yes, that was indeed a failure of mine in the moment. Something that I will absolutely strive to improve upon and have better reactions from now and forward. It's regrettable to me in hindsight and I am sorry that I missed the opportunity.
  2. As to the bits that occurred in the Discord Other Games Chat channel: My linking of the video from TheQuartering of which is a topic based on SW:KOTOR was ONLY meant to be a contextual basis for the conversation directly about SW:KOTOR and the basis by which the devs have opted to do a re-write of the game as opposed to a straightforward remaster. Absolutely nothing more is meant from that linking. Most anyone who knows me would understand that I do not make posts with the intent to be inflammatory nor malicious. At that time, it was as simple straightforward as that for me. The conversation with Kal is directly where we have clear difference of opinions on things. He asked me my opinions on subjects and I gave him MY opinions. He then replied that he was going to take some time and think on my responses. That's the last I heard from him. He never contacted me again on talking about anything further. The next I heard of him is when he resigned his Full Membership. With his lack of follow-up I have no way of knowing if he was OK with my responses or not. It's always extremely regrettable to see a member leave, and that hits me harder knowing I was likely the cause. Despite our differences of opinion, it doesn't sully the time I spent gaming with Kal and hope the best for him on his endeavors. It's is ultimately regrettable that my intentions were lost in our conversation and we never had the opportunity to properly settle and clear the air. I am sorry for the disrespect that happened on my end to Kal, and endeavor to improve on these types of handlings in the future. Then the private conversation post Town Hall is definitely an area that is personally regrettable for me. After nearly a full month removed from my Kal interaction I was being accused of a myriad of things and my emotional response kicked in. I am still a fallible human and still have defensive emotional responses. Such response resulted in an outburst from me at Chibiushi. I was put into check and the room was calmed down and once I had an space of opportunity I did offer my apologies to Chibi in the presence of everyone there. He then requested to talk to me privately of which I accepted and spent a justly and fair amount of time hashing out our differences and misunderstandings. By the end of our conversation we were shooting the general breeze on things and maybe even catching up once more when various Pandemic things calm down to openly allow such things. Where I go from here, is that of reflection, assimilation of information, keeping that information in the forefront of my mind until it is common muscle memory for future instances. I now have a much better understanding of when I need to remain silent and not offer responses as too much emotion would be intertwined in said response. Even as a Founder I am susceptible to missteps and still have a reliance on not only my fellow admins and members but even the people I may have wronged are free to open those lines on communication with me. Even in all the years MadCast has been operating there is no precise step by step to prevent individual/personal missteps as that really is a fact of human nature.
  3. Welcome back and thank you for your continued service. 👍
  4. So those of us looking forward to release I am sure were a bit saddened with the 1 month delay. My personal opinion with my hands on from the most recent beta period is that the tiny delay is likely a wise decision. That being said it's never too early to start conversations and make preparations for that glorious release day. With that I want to make it known that I plan to play the game and it will likely become 1 of my 2 primary games for the foreseeable future. (BF2042 being my other primary) With this knowledge I see total merit in the creation of a MadCast company within the New World game. (For those unaware, a Company is the term for what is equal to a guild in most MMORPGs) I would love to assemble all those who already plan to play the game into said group. Playing these types of games alongside people is exponentially more enjoyable than solo, and likely the best experience if played with my fellow MadCasters. Discussions of Faction selection and server location, cluster, and named can be had in the coming weeks. I just wanted to make sure that it was made known my intention to play the game as well as form an actual MadCast company within the game. While our communal comfort and enjoyment of the game is of course a priority I also plan to an utilize this as a means to attract some new chill and likeminded folks to our gaming family and corner of the gaming interwebs. Some details on the game and it's cost can be found here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1063730/New_World/ and here: https://www.newworld.com/en-us
  5. Hello there! From our records I see that you were purged due to inactivity on 09/19/2019. Your tags are now reinstated. Welcome back and thank you for your time of service.
  6. The long awaited website update is now live as you may have noticed. Now sporting some new and redesigned landing pages and various navigation and graphic updates. The mobile aspect of the site should now be vastly more functional compared to the state it was in. Work on the game specific pages is still ongoing, but as it's not vital to the function of the update there was no reason to hold up the release. I know it was a long time coming and thank you to those that never gave up hope. Hopefully it somewhat satisfies the expectation. As always please feel free to post any questions or report any bugs here to be addressed in some manner.
  7. 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.
  8. I also seem to recall a certain LT voice screaming out: "Damnit Maday" as I've domed you plenty of times as well.
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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.
  12. I shall make myself available to answer any questions.
  13. I need all who would like to provide input as to what they would like to see on the Tabletop Landing page to please get together and schedule a meeting so we can hash out all the details so I can work on assembling the page. If someone is unable to attend a meeting then please provide the input in this thread as well.
  14. I need all who desire to have input on what they would like to see included on the Destiny Landing page to schedule a time where most can attend and go over details. If someone can't attend then they can feel free to drop their input in this thread.
  15. 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.
  16. Contributions, Help, Efforts, Aiding, Tasks, & Suggestions (CHEATS) MadCast is first and foremost a gaming community, and we rely heavily on the efforts of the individual to maintain the health of the group. 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. If you want to continue to seek out and assist in things that benefit our community: please consider volunteering in an official capacity by applying to be an RFM and have a bigger voice in guiding the community. As Full Members, we all must take responsibility and ownership in this community. This can be done by donating your time or money, or both. We are all in this together and we all have a vested interest in seeing this place succeed.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
