  1. I believe it's 'bollocks', since it's a British site. Personally, I think the religion needs to be even more modernized than it is now, especially overseas. Condemning these acts is not enough. Martyrdom and the ideas surrounding it within the Islamic religion needs to change. Obviously it will be harder to convince extremists but I think you need to start somewhere and contest the ideas of the religion itself rather than simply stating "Not my Islam". One of the biggest reasons there are jihadists on planet earth is because of Islam and to deny that is just crazy at this point. There are ideas within every religion that had modernized over time but it seems that modernization within Islam has been the slowest due to the nature of the book of Qur'an. Communism could not have been defeated without an ideological struggle that picked away at its moral assumptions. The struggle against Islamism isn’t so different. Along with the views the religion has, politically we are not doing ourselves any favours by entering other countries and bombing their people for whatever retarded reason the United States comes up with. Unintentionally, the US has become a fantastic recruiter for the Islamic State and it is clear something needs to change with our view of them and how to solve the problem. When I heard Donald Trump say, "We're going to bomb the shit out of them!" during the campaign trail, all I could think was how naive that solution is. In general the greed and vanity of the US and the 'West' in general need to tone it the fuck down. As well the hypocrisy and fear surrounding the views on the middle east have become too out of proportion in my eyes --the fear of potential immediate terror is getting too carried away. Yes the Islamic State and other jihadist groups do not require pretexts for violence but the core jihadist objection to the West concerns our values, not our policies. The journalists at Charlie Hebdo weren’t murdered for advocating neoconservative positions. In my eyes it's a war of ideas and bombing them is not going to solve shit... it's going to make it worse. I won't even start with how society turns a cold-shoulder to young adult men with mental health issues. Just looking at this video alone conveys a bit of what I think. This video represents how other countries view the stereotypical American. And to top it off, he's your President of all people. As a Canadian, I see and think this. Who the fuck knows how the Middle East views it.
  2. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/may/22/manchester-arena-police-explosion-ariana-grande-concert-england At least 22 people, including children, have been killed and 59 injured in a suicide bombing at a crowded pop concert in Manchester, the most deadly attack in Britain in a decade. The horror unfolded at about 10.30pm on Monday at the end of a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande, whose music is popular with children and teenagers. The attack, which took place in the foyer, left hundreds of people fleeing in terror, with young people at the concert separated from their parents in the chaos. It left carnage inside the concert venue, with medics describing treating wounds consistent with shrapnel injury.
  3. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/manchester-arena-bomber-salman-abedi-10498466 Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi 'was banned from mosque after accusing Imam of "talking b*****ks" in anti-ISIS sermon'
  4. If he is found guilty of his misdemeanor is he allowed to keep his seat?
  5. Those pansy bitches need to get better at rebelling. Usually they're killed by a CT and then start a bitch fest explaining that the warden didn't say no detours and delays. Another reason why it should be implied haha.
  6. If a team goes 0-3 the first day, I bet they're going to be encouraged to come back and do the same thing the second day lol
  7. Yeah I suppose we could file this under the enduring "why do they hate us" mystery: https://twitter.com/AP_Politics/status/867764820417949696
  8. In your eyes, what's the solution to 'ending this crap'?
  9. What do borders have to do with it?
  10. Why would you need it for games?
  11. People are able to say it whenever they like. To be clear (as I saw it was brought up before), this is vote is for whether the warden should have to say the order or not. Terrorists would still not be allowed to detour and delay on every order as that would just be silly.
  12. Fair enough, then I'd rather just have it implied. I was just trying to be accommodating to the people that still wanted to keep it.
  13. Saying 'no detours and no delays' doesn't make wardening difficult. It's just confusing for newer players to get used to. It creates problems with the rounds and discourages new players to stick around. Usually you'll see someone new take over warden and then get trolled by all the other players either spamming him in chat or walking around towards the new warden hoping he freekills you because he hasn't said no detours or delays. The warden gets slayed and then questions why he was slayed. He has to wait out the round and usually says 'fuck this, I'm out' before the next round starts. It does nothing but make the round turn into chaos for no good reason. The round would run much smoother like every other round (how jailbreak is supposed to be played) if it were just implied, similar to other popular servers. It's redundant and pointless. Just because 'we've always done it', isn't a good reason to keep it. I'm not sure how you think it would make the game drag on, bore the players or make it take longer though. Can you explain? Edit: Think about it. Right now we are at a great need of new and eager players to keep this server populated. We need to look at ways to keep new players around. I really wish the vote was public so we could see who's actually voting and if they even still play jailbreak.
  14. Holy shit! Here's his statement defending his actions lol
  15. How about this instead New rule for detours and delays: "You must say no detours and no delays on the first order given as Warden. After that, 'no detours and delays' is implied for the following orders given by the Warden in the round." Best of both worlds. People can still inform the new player who is wardening that they have to say it once. Then after that, the round can move smoothly without any bullshit.
  16. Is it possible to get 2 more servers? Making 4 in total. If we had four servers this could be done all in one weekend, instead of two. Either way I'd prefer to play all teams rather than the same team twice in the round robin stage. Either that or just play each team in my group once. And if that means we have to play both days on June 3rd or 4th that's fine with me. Not sure if others are good for both days or not but we do have six people on our team. The final weekend seems like it could be completed in one day with the single elim bracket. See example of how it would look: http://challonge.com/4lmuka5s
  17. Some did Is it possible to get more servers
  18. Before you do the thread, you could really do this all in one weekend. Day 1 - Round Robin with all 8 Day 2 - Single Elim Bracket with top 6 Edit: nvm i dunno that would be a lot with top 8 in one day, unless you have more servers.
  19. I'd be cool with this Edit: But I guess it might be hard to get some teams to only play on Saturday and others on Sunday
  20. I suppose most of them won't be close anyhow For me personally, I'm cool with playing each team once. I don't need to be steamrolled by Fugner's team twice haha.
  21. we're playing 7 hours straight no breaks? Damn dawg
  22. The Warden queue is simply for people that want to be warden can enter a queue until the map changes or if they change to the Terrorist team. Once they have been warden they are put to the bottom of the CT team queue. It happens on other servers I've played on and works very well. In some servers, the members of the clan are given priority making the server run smooth and diverse. There's also less bitching between people (not that there's a lot right now cause our server isn't anywhere near as populated as it used to be). But when it's a full server, it keeps things diverse to have different warden each round rather than having the usual warden whore making it unpleasant to play T. Sure a rule could work if you're warden two rounds in a row but an automated queue if written properly can make it all the easier and productive for people playing the server. New rule for detours and delays: "You must say no detours and delays on the first order given as Warden. After that, no detours and delays is implied for the following orders given by the Warden in the round."
  23. I think there are more withstanding issues with the server that are more important to having a populated server than killwhoring: - amount of rounds on each map - diversity of maps being played - detours/delays after every order - warden queue - having all players unmuted if below 10 people Killwhoring is managed very easily if a good admin is on. We need more ways to keep the server diverse and fun rather than doing the same thing time and time again.
