Hello Xeno Gamers!

Haha April 20th am I right fellas?

What's New This Month?

  • The Official Noob Guide is out. The Official Noob Guide! If there's anything you feel is important to add, please comment on the guide and I'll make the changes! Anyone who is new to the forums will hopefully see this now before doing anything else.
  • Badges are now out on users. Refer to this guide Badges if you want to know what is available. (Will be finished within 2 days as the badges interface got fixed less than a day ago) If you have any suggestions, please post here Badges Megathread!.
  • For Staff: "Unless a Player is explicitly affecting the Servers (or is otherwise harassing a Player on our Servers) then there is no reason to ban a Player for their actions outside of the Servers. In other words, in order for a Player to be punished, they have to be affecting the Server as a whole, or, and this is a big 'or', they have to be a danger (IE. [verbal] harassment, threats, etc) to any of the Players in the Server (including Staff). Anything above or beyond this is an abuse of power from the Staff (depending on the situation)." Quoted from @Forest, we discussed as higher-ups that this is in fact the best course of action. This debate was sparked due to a ban last week so this should hopefully clear things up, and if you have any questions as moderators/admins, do not be afraid to ask the higher-ups on clarification.
  • TF2 Staff can now choose to use staff titles or tags in servers, instead of just the steam tags that we've done since the beginning of time. This is subject to change at a later time, but for now the division...

Hello Xeno Gamers!

The Leprechauns are gone but we're back!

What's New This Month?

  • TF2 Staff Requirement has been reverted to a set time of 14 hours biweekly. The higherups decided that leaving it up to "be as active as you can" left too much gray area, and they believe that the staff prefer set hours as well as long as it's reasonable.
  • Added the banners for News + Promo/demo, not final versions by any means so don't fret!
What's Coming Up Soon?
  • Membership Application Processes will be changed completely within the next 2 weeks once the final things are worked out. We will change it to 2 day applications where there is a 2 day window for people to voice their opinion (mainly to say if they are unfit to join xG) and if they qualify then they will be in. This change is from many people who join our servers finding xG too hard to join as some people who aren't very social can not get the required vouches to join our community or do not want to wait the few weeks - month just to hear if they got accepted or not. We do not want xG to feel like an exclusive club. This 2 day window will be crucial in keeping out people who shouldn't be in so members who want their voice heard should be checking forums daily. More details will be out in a post dedicated for it and will be open for discussion there.
