Ran into this which fixes supcom2. Haven't tested because I don't update my drivers, but maybe it will help someone.
That will work. I paste the whole file too cos you get your hotkeys too. Then backup your prefs file because that thing is worth gold.
Hi guys, I've been asked to resign by the council due to my unprofessional posts about the election and council. I'm sorry about all of the drama guys, I guess I got a tad passionate there. Here is my resignation:
Whoever comes next, come hit me up to learn how to do the news, it's a bit tricky.
It is simply a fiction that the council is against my game. FTX and Biass are milking it for all they a worth and spreading it as far and wide as possible. But yes it would be good if the other councilors could confirm what has been talked about in the council.
that's just something they say to make me look bad and derail the conversation =).
the reality is the council has let me continue for now. but two delightful councilors raise this smear campaign story again and again.
If this is about the fact that the news was used as a tool > that same tool was offered to all councilors to use.
If this is about the fact that a councilor spoke in favour of a candidate > There are no rules that is not allowed. In real life politicians are always talking about their candidates.
The issue as I see it is the 10,000 want change but don't know how to get it. That is what I was trying to give them.
If I'm right > I've helped FAF achieve their goal
If I'm wrong > no one will vote the way I recommended - no harm done
I cast a bet that people think the way I think they do. Lets see how out of touch I am.
Hi Turin, I'm not really here to answer your point by point questions to be honest.
Hi Turinturambar. My goal with the newspost was to reach the common man. We know full well that what the aggresive vocal discord/forum people think. Basically everyone I talk to personally is fed up with attitude in FAF. I wanted to know what the 10,000 common man thought and let him know that he had the power to create change.
Do you want to know what the common man thinks?
If yes> Why don't we find out? Poll on newshub? People can vote in election?
If no > why?
In general our team posts everything that is submitted to us. We have not filtered out any FAF-political content. In political situations especially it is fair to have the same rules for everyone. The current policy for FAF-political posts are this:
If a councilor wants to make a FAF-political post we will publish it - just phrase it objectively like 'jerry said nine is dumb' and dont say 'nine is dumb'. You need a title, description and image. If you don't provide an image we will put one in for you. If your text is too long we will do our best to preserve the intention of the message and shorten it.
If a non-councilor wishes to submit a post it will be considered but not guaranteed.
To ask for a post follow the instructions here
The way democracy works is [everyone talks shit about each other] then [someone wins]. There seems to be this idea from the community that I am somehow not allowed to talk while every other councilor can mouth of as they please. Am I some sub-councilor or what? Oh wait I write news therefore I must not post news about me. Well ... that's garbage. All councilors are offered the opportunity to post any news they want. In fact I have posted 100% of what councilors have asked me to post. If that is not good enough then it seems like you dont want an equal playing field - you want an unequal one where only I have to shut up.
And if election integrity is something that is something that must be fiercely enforced ... just you wait for part 2.
You might notice that some councilors are trying to save their own skin / look good / retain power / not commit to pledges.
I am not here to retain power. I am here to create change. Toxicity is a serious issue that should be addressed in this election.
If I am fired for giving a (potentially over the top) huge opposition to toxicity, I can sleep at night, believe me. I'm here to help FAF, not look good. I look forward to seeing what the 10,000 players think. Perhaps they disagree with me in which case fair call, I can accept that.
Hi archsimkat, this has been posted on the news. I have tried to be impartial in the posting - let me know if you would like any changes. In other news, as stated in 5 different places (eg this thread) I am totally happy to post news from candidates about the election.
Do you think councilors should be held to the pledge? I do. However do you know that basically none of the councilors (including me) took the pledge. I have fought long and hard to actually create the situation where councilors ARE accountable and MUST take the pledge. In fact I was a fierce proponent that councilors should not be candidates unless they took the pledge. Well, if you wanna know how that turned out, people can basically do whatever they want with no accountability whatsoever. Ftx has announced he will not take your quoted pledge at all and will make up his own pledge.
I'm with you 100%. Lets make it mandatory for all councilors to take the pledge and moving forward - remove them for breaking them.
If you can get the council to agree to that, you are a better man than I.
