What do you guys think of creating a POLL or some kind of voting system for new admins? Do you think it could make the admin position more valuable since they would know it comes down to a vote? The applicant may try to make strategic moves to gain popularity into the community as if he or she were in a political race, lol.. I have no problem with that. However, using a POLL, we could see details of what everyone thinks before we give admin to anyone. 

What do you guys think?

In fact, the Poll system is built right into our Google+ community.

I’m sure over the past few months you guys noticed the drop in traffic to our TF2 servers. Besides everything that has expired within our community, popular gaming sources tell me there has been a significant drop in Steam portal traffic for TF2 over overall, it’s not just us. This drop in traffic has obviously affected our community. Some of this has to do with many of the new games released for the PC, PS4 and XBO. Besides that, over the past few months we’ve had a lot of changes throughout the Oz Gaming management. As for me, work has been kicking my butt. As this is a good thing for my wallet, not so much for my community. Same goes for Jab. When you add all these things together, it’s almost impossible to build a strong gaming community without our admins being active, interacting and recruiting on a daily basis. Maybe TF2 is slowly dying out? Don’t know.

You guys remember the major issue we had with GameServers.com? That forced me to relocate our TF2 servers and start new IPs, after 7 years that is never a good thing. Especially when you spend all that time advertising your IPs and the players adding them to their favorites and suddenly it’s no longer there. Not good. Then I found Fragnet.net. They were suppose to be our crutch, but 3 months later they failed us. I won’t go into detail, let’s just say their support is horrendous. Stay far away from Fragnet.net unless you don’t mind waiting 24-48 hours for someone to respond to your support tickets. I will be posting negative reviews about Fragnet.net just like I did for GameServers.com. What can I say, I don’t like it when people waste my time and money. Others will know about it.

With that being said, after 7 years I will be taking a short rest from running/managing/building/owning a gaming community. I plan on keeping www.ozgaming.net up and running until I figure out which game to go with for the next 7 years. Any ideas please post them in the comments below.

Whoever wants to use www.ozgaming.net, the forum and social media will be up and running, so feel free.
Please post your questions and ideas!
I love you guys!

I know I am not OZ, but I certainly feel like most of you are nearly family.  I put a lot of sweat into your server and enjoyed it immensely.  Last summer, I started enjoying TF2 less and less, mainly because it is so hard to find a truly competitive game anymore.  Everyone seems to be so enamored with congas and high fives and the like.  I just want to kill people over and over and over and... well.. you get my drift.   TF2 just wasn't satifying that competitive spirit any more.  Compounding everything, my rig took a dump and once rebuilt, it never seemed to have the "Feel" of the old one.  After a few games of hitch and stutter, I just got frustrated and decided to take a break.  That break turned into months and then Fallout 4 came out.  Since then I have been playing that when I have time, but work has been crazy this year and I mostly just work and sleep.  I understand what it means to just be tired.

I said all of that just to get to this:  Thanks PC for keeping the torch burning so long.  Even when the game began to become less of what it started out as, people kept coming to OZ because of the community.  I tip my hat to you for that.

As for your server issues, I had clan servers for years before coming over to the OZ servers.  I experienced the same suckage from gameservers.com and others.  Finally, after years of being dissatisfied, I found nfoservers.com.  They are truly the best IMO, the machines/network are strong and the support is second to none.  If you ever fire this thing back off at full speed, I strongly suggest using them.

So what game is the "Future"?    I don't see anything out there that rings my bell.  I tried the alpha of Doom, but it is so buggy and laggy I gave up on it.  The atmosphere was certainly there, but they have a LONG way to go before that game might be fun/competitive.  Hopefully a new FPS will come out that has less hats/party favors/random noobness than TF2, but until then I will just watch and see what you guys are up to.  Never know when I might drop by. 

Good luck and many thanks

These are some of his Alias’s – Proto, Prototeus, Officer Proto, Proto for President
Not sure if you guys know [Oz] Proto. After not being being here for several months, today he messages me at work to complain about one of our admins, but not just any admin, [Oz] Jab, who happens to be part owner and a good friend of mine. Proto went on to ask how Jab can go ape shit on anyone whenever he feels like it because he is part owner. Proto really didn’t have anything nice to say about Jab. That bothered me. I know Jab, he doesn’t go ape shit on anyone, the guy hardly talks and basically minds his own business. If he does get upset about something, it was probably justified. So for Proto to say that was not cool. He went on to say how I am a bad owner because of it. Not cool.
In the past I’ve worked with Proto. But to be honest, Proto is too hot and cold for my liking. However, I still like and respect him. That will never change.

Bing Rewards – http://binged.it/1KmvARo

Why Bing Rewards? Because many of you spend a great deal of time using Google search. But what if we could get paid or "rewarded" for our search efforts? We can. Last month I decided to give Bing Rewards a try. It works. If you are not familiar with Bing Rewards, it's a way for you to earn rewards in return for using Microsoft's Bing to search. It's easy to get started. Follow either link to setup your account, set Bing as your browser's startup page and use Bing as your primary search tool. Done.

For me, I love Google and all it's services and will continue to use them, but Google does not compensate me for using their search engine, Bing does and Bing gives identical search results. Many say Bing is better than Google. Try it for yourself. Our time is valuable, so why not get paid for it. Bing rewards you per search for using their search engine, Google does not.
Be sure to share this with your friends so they can start earning rewards too!
