Re: NFl

Yeah I wouldn't rely on the stats that those sites give you, the DFS games are all about differentiation. You pick the 4-5 big hitters that everyone has (i.e. Mike Evans/Zeke Elliot last week) who have favourable match ups and are scoring consistently.. then try and fill the rest of your team with c...

Re: Laptop advice

I've always been happy with the gear I got from PC Specialist who let you customise your laptop build. Not the cheapest but the components and build are top notch. If its just for general internet/office work then perhaps something like this:. https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/ultraNoteIII-14...

Re: Arbiter

Cheers MS for the clarification. Two seems a reasonable limit but, given that I didn't make the rules clear in my post, I suggest we let Kond's nominations stand and see if we get some seconds.

Arbiter

As Kond pointed out on chat, it has indeed been over a year since I was made arbiter so it's time for us to choose who will be looking after the next year. Anyone that is interested in putting their name forward should make themselves known on here. Also feel free to nominate other people as well if...

Re: Oculus Rift pre-orders

I had a DK1 (non Kickstarter unfortunately) and I'll definitely be grabbing this though probably not tomorrow as January is a terrible month, financially, with Xmas and my daughters birthday... As a result I might be on the second wave.. :(

Re: Proposal: How to propose new ideas..

Fair enough on the differing language. That was not intended. Let's fall on the side of significantly.

Also just to clarify this is not a "ruling". This proposal is from just NF and not Arbiter NF.

Re: Proposal: How to propose new ideas..

Yes "I get you" and you seem to be making this unnecessarily difficult - a little common sense is all that is being asked for here. Taking away moderation rights from a member who hasn't been here since 2013 is obviously not worthy of a group discussion. I broadly outlined my thoughts in t...

Re: Proposal: How to propose new ideas..

Just too add I don't support the arbiter making unilateral decisions either.. not what people voted me in for and not a job I want to do. How about this... Similar suggestion to what BF made, though not exactly. How about if someone has an idea like this in the future, they run it by the Arbiter fir...

Re: Proposal: How to propose new ideas..

We'd have spent all this time simply deciding whether we should even try Discord, when in the end (if we had decided to lol), each of us would still have needed to try it in order to see what we thought of it. Just seems like we sometimes make things more difficult than they really need to be inste...

Re: Helldivers

Heartily agree there Ozone - such a fun little game that hasn't got much love in the press. It's not going to tax your brain cells but if you just want to shoot stuff, repeatedly, it is extremely well done. The DLC is well worth splashing out for as well.

As a proposed structure for tabling an idea I suggest the following: [*]A thread is created in the members forum detailing the idea with a breakdown of the positives and negatives. ...

Re: Proposal: How to propose new ideas..

Apologies for being a bit blunt here MS but it is very clear to me that the approach of doing without discussing is not working. I make this the 3rd time in the last 6 months where an idea has been acted upon without discussion and people have ended up being upset. We simply cannot sustain this appr...

Re: Discord - A new place for us to chat

I'm not sure I agree with the conclusion, but the Arbiter has spoken, I shall let that lie :) I agree it's not a solution that will please everyone but frankly I don't think there was a solution that would. To just expand on my thinking I see the forums as the primary communication channel for STR ...

Re: Discord - A new place for us to chat

Arbiter hat is going on here. From what I have seen there are two issues to be addressed here: 1) How the idea was proposed and implemented. 2) The use of Discord over/with IRC Starting with the first I do agree that the idea/trial was not as clear as it could have been. Nothing is going to change h...

So once again we find ourselves in a contentious situation regarding changes to the group and how they are discussed and implemented.

Re: Let's give Discord a try - Potential IRC replacement

Apologies but with Christmas I've been somewhat out of the loop on these discussions so I've been trying to catch up.. It's my understanding that we're definitely in a trial mode here - dipping our toes, so to speak - to see if another chat platform can bring something better to the table than IRC. ...

Not sure if anyone else has taken at look at this but for the price it's horrendously good fun. Basically it's a sci-fi Magicka-style, twin stick shooter and definitely has an air of Starship Troopers about it. http://cdn.gamer-network.net/2015/usgamer/8-PS4-HELLDIVERS-Mech-Bug-Desert.jpg Up to four...
