Maintenance to Gaming Sections

Posted by Sousuke - Aug 18 2014 10:27 PM

Hey guys.

 

Tomorrow (19/08/14) at 7PM BST the Gaming Sections will disappear temporarily for a few hours as they will be re-organized as the amount of sections we have at the moment is not needed.

 

Thanks

Sousuke.


MGOL Q&A/FAQ

Posted by Sousuke - Mar 19 2014 07:48 PM

MGOLeague Q&A/FAQ.

 

So I think that its better to have one topic full of the information you need to know and allowing you to ask questions about the development of MGOLeague (I will not be talking about any new features on the site as that is being kept on the hush hush).

 

What is MGOLeague?

 

MGOLeague stands for Metal Gear Online League, It will be a website dedicated to MGO3 (The online mode for the yet to be released Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain). The site will be taylor made for MGO discussion and event organizing.

 

Why split MGO3 discussion into its own site?

 

I know that this community once apon a time came from MGO2 so to stop MGO3 discussion overflowing TGF in which at its heart is a general gaming forum which it will continue to be even after the launch of MGOL.

 

Why the MGOLeague name?

 

This is a part of the MGS Online history that I'd like to bring forward to a new site, MGS3League and MPOLeague both had forums in which were very active, I was a member of MPOLeague so that name kinda stuck!

 

What will happen to all my stuff on TGF?

 

Absolutely nothing will happen all of your posts and everything else as TGF Is still going to be around, If you want a general breakdown of what will follow you go here:

 

http://www.tgforums....be-moving-over/

 

When will MGOLeague be launched?

 

I am looking to launch the site at the same time (Or a week before) the MGO3 Beta, The site itself is in final closed beta so when MGO3 Beta is launched MGOLeague will go into an Open Beta phase in which bugs may cause issues on the site but thats what beta is for. Keep an eye out for topics about this,

 

I'm permanently suspended from TGF, Will that effect me logging into MGOL.

 

No, all previously permanently suspended members of TGF will be allowed to join MGOL but to stop people from abusing this trust you will start with 11 warning points.

 

 

If you have any questions about MGOLeague please post them below!

 

Please do not debate in this thread, only ask questions.


MGOL what will be moving over?

Posted by Sousuke - Mar 19 2014 02:06 PM

So, What will be moving over to MGOLeague and what will not?

 

So as you know your logins are going to be the same on MGOLeague as they are on TGF, but the main question what will move over from TGF to MGOL.

 

What will move:

  1. Your Username and Password
  2. Your Display Name
  3. 11 Warning points if you are permanently suspended.

What will not move:

  1. Your bans.
  2. Your current warning level.
  3. Your signature and avatar.
  4. Your reputation level.
  5. Your Post Count.

 

MGOLeague will be a fresh start for 99% of the community, so for that reason most of your statistics will not follow you.

 

The only reason for the 11 warning points is plainly due to issues which will arise again, if those members want to stay a member on MGOL They will follow the rules.

 

I know some of these things are annoying that you will loose but i think allowing previously permanently suspended members to join the new forum and your loosing your warning levels will be a good trade off.

 

Thanks for Reading.


TGF with no Ads. Why?

Posted by Sousuke - Mar 01 2014 10:31 PM

Hello Everyone,

 

As you may have noticed TGF Hasn't had any ads for around 2-3 months.

 

So a few reasons for this one being one which you guys will most appreciate.

 

The First is that Google seams to like to suspend our Adsense account for almost no reason. OMG There is a picture of a girl which is questionable ... which they aren't naked or anything like that its apparently not "Family Friendly".

 

So me getting notified about another Adsense suspension is a weekly occurrence for this site which is why we removed a few threads for a while which did not solve anything.

 

Recently Google decided not to forward a few notification E-Mails and suspend my account, Which I have been fighting ever since, Every single appeal attempt has failed due to more and more "Questionable content" being nothing more than a WWE GIF.

 

So the last appeal failed over something stupid and at that point I decided to say "Fuck it" If I followed the Google rules I'd have to remove 40% of the sites content.

 

So the the Second Reason, I'd have to make this site allot stricter with regards to moderation and remove 40% of the sites content to make it "Google" and "Family Friendly"

 

Gaming communities are not  "Family Friendly" and they never will be, Google forcing this down our throats is absolutely ridiculous.

 

So what does this mean for the site, will it die? Will MGOLeague be stopped? Both Answers No.

 

However we need your support, Please donate to the site as it costs quite allot a year to run the site.

 

Thanks

Sousuke


MGOLeague Development

Posted by Sousuke - Mar 01 2014 10:17 PM

5_logo2.png

 

Hello Guys,

 

MGOLeague development is currently on track for release at any time ready for the beta of Metal Gear Online 3.

 

This site has been developed with you guys in mind, we have features in which other forums will not have. We can not announce much (Otherwise our competitors could make what I said above wrong).

 

The new forum will be open to all members including members who have previously been banned on this site, they will however start on 10 Warning Points (50% of total warning points). Meaning that they will need to behave otherwise they will be banned again.

 

Website development costs allot of money, buying licences and webspace is expensive and we need your help in both funding and moderation.

 

1. We need people to apply for staff on MGOLeague:

 

We need Moderators and Tournament Staff as we will be looking at Leagues and Tournaments as being a key aspect of the website (Hence its name).

 

If you are able to help with either of these jobs please fill out applications:

 

http://www.tgforums....f-applications/

 

2. Money.

 

This site is no longer funded by advertisements, in fact it hasn't been ad driven for the past few months but I will get into that in another post.

 

Site Development takes time and money, I would rather not have to ask people for money but I would rather give you guys more relaxed forums without Google's bureaucracy saying we can't have certain things posted on the site which I say hell to it.

 

So if you are willing to donate to the site and MGOLeagues development then use the donation button on the forum index.

 

So yes, Please apply for the role of Moderator and Tournament Staff!

 

Thanks

Sousuke

Site Downtime 22/01/14

Posted by Sousuke - Jan 22 2014 10:44 AM

Hello Guys,

 

The site will be offline soon for about 30-45 mins as we are updating some of the server software behind the scenes.

 

This is to bring the compatibility of the website back up to standard!

 

Thanks

Sousuke


Merry Christmas from everyone from TGF!

Posted by Sousuke - Dec 24 2013 10:20 AM

Merry Christmas from all the staff at The Gaming Forums

and have a Happy New Year!

 

So as its Christmas Eve I would like to put out a message, 2013 was a fantastic year on this site, we've had the advertisers, the people who thinks that the site is here to stroke their ego and people who thinks that they own the place but with some people have been on here since October 2009, I think that we are still going strong! 

 

With some of our newest members also sticking around I think that we are only going to get stronger. Plans for 2014 is simple launch MGOLeague and keep TGF running strong.

 

Remember guys, this site has been built and run for you, no one else! 

 

So have a fantastic Christmas and a Happy New Year

 

Thanks

Daniel aka Sousuke


Crackdown on Racism

Posted by Sousuke - Nov 19 2013 11:01 AM

I have noticed a rise in the use of Racism on this site and I am not happy with that.

 

If you do not know our policy on this subject take a look at our rules:

 

http://www.tgforums....nd-regulations/

 

Posting any racist comments on this forum will result in an instant ban and now Racism warnings do not expire for 1 Year.

 

So our staff will be cracking down on this behaviour.

 

Guys its just unnecessary to use racism and i know that all of you are smarter than that.

I see a lot of people are having issue embedding tweets so this is how it is done:

 

To embed tweets, all you need to do is this copy and paste the link to the exact tweet, it will auto-detect it is a tweet and embed it for you. Make sure the url isn't hyperlinked!
