Topic: Teeworlds Elders

As Teeworlds has outgrown the "hobby project" phase, so has the responsibilities of those involved. We now find ourselves in a situation where it's more of a chore than a leisure, which is never a fun place to be.

Recently, we also suffered a greater influx of DDoS attacks, IRC zombie raids and general griefing which we, at this point, don't feel like having to deal with.

For this reason, we're now officially handing over the reins of most aspects of the Teeworlds day-to-day work, taking more of a backseat in developing and maintaining the game and its infrastructure. We've chosen people that we know and can trust.

Here are the elders that now will run Teeworlds:

minus, Server administrator
Takes care of the teeworlds.com server.

Oy, Code maintainer
Takes care of the code and merging patches from people.

Kottizen, IRC channel operator
Takes care of the IRC channels on Quakenet.

Magnet, Forum administrator
As before.

matricks & teetow, Teeworlds Gurus
Matricks and Teetow will still be advising and supervising the development effort, until we've found people that can fill that role adequately.

We are also missing someone that takes care of the website as a whole. We'll assign this to someone when we find a suitable candidate.

That's it for now.

Matricks and Teetow

Nice to hear.

Programming is similar to sex. If you make a mistake, you have to support it for the rest of your life.

Re: Teeworlds Elders

Eventually, this will maybe boost the teeworlds devlopment... fresh people to lead Teeworlds isn't such a bad thing.
I'm glad the story ends with a "They lived happily and had many children" smile

Not Luck, Just Magic.

It was a pain of long waiting the last time.

Re: Teeworlds Elders

Hi,
Thank you for all matricks.
I'm playing this game since 0.4.2, and well
in my mind, Teeworlds is more than
a game.
I've collected so many experience at all.
The story of Teeworlds deserves an
own film wink
Thx for your decision, and yeah.
Don't know what to say, so i'm
gonna play teeworlds wink

I'm back active, and since i'm also a web developer (PHP/MySQL) I suppose I could do something for the community instead of doing nothing. I'm also avaiable as a moderator of the forum, if you need so, or anything else I'm able to do. Let me know, I want Teeworlds to go on.

Re: Teeworlds Elders

Hello everyone,

i'm m!nus and i'll administrate the server from now on.
First thing to change is that trac will be shut down.
After all necessary wiki pages are moved to git/this page.

Feel free to describe why, it's always easier to change if I know what to change.

Re: Teeworlds Elders

I rarely kick people without any reason, and the most common reasons are cheating or flooding the chat. If you feel I kicked you in error, please send me a private message so we can solve it. Sometimes I accidentally kick people because it looks like they are cheating.

However - back on topic now.


Coold0wn: As bots aren't a problem for vanilla gametypes, yet, people who use them will probably not be banned from the masters.

Re: Teeworlds Elders

Nice to hear this smile
I'm playing teeworlds since0.4.2, too.
And it would have been a shame if it really were the end of Teeworlds tongue
Thank you for all matricks.
