Hello and welcome to Mod Report number 38! Can you believe we’ve been doing this since the end of November? I can’t!
Sorry about not announcing the Olympics in the last Report, I completely forgot about it until it happened. Hopefully, anyone who was going to watch it got to watch it anyways, but I apologize if I somehow let someone down.
On the bright side, we’ve got anthems! This is a playlist of all the Community anthems we could find, let us know if we should add yours.
And, if you won a medal, your winnings will be coming soon. Silent’s going to go through the videos soon.
Mann vs Machine!
So, if you’re interested at all in Team Fortress 2, you know about the Mann vs Machine update by now. So, I hopefully don’t have to tell you about how it works or anything. What I can tell you, however, is that we have servers for it! Four of them, in fact! And here’s how to join them: Go to the Play! page, and click a server! It’s that simple!
Now, with great gamemodes comes great problems, so, to address complaints of spectators being kicked from MvM servers, we have this to say. Basically, spectators take up spots for the bots, so we have to kick spectators to ensure a steadier stream of bots. Sorry, but that’s just how it goes.
Team Fortress 2 Glitches!
So, this week’s glitch is some odd problem with what seems like random weapons that makes ‘x’s fire from your weapon. In case you were wondering, no, it’s not only our server. And no, we’re not quite sure how to fix it.
We would like to congratulate CogswellChris on his promotion to Mod status! With that, we would also like to announce the obsoletion of the Com position for now. It may or may not be permanent, we haven’t decided for sure either way.
Quote/Video of the Week!
So, I’ve only got one quote this week, sorry but things have been surprisingly quiet around Modchat this week. All I’ve got this week is KShade’s reaction to reports of someone else using his name: “I told them that if “I” talk to them on Steam it’s not me”
Now, to make up for the lack of hilarity from Modchat this week, we have three videos! First, we have yet another parody of Call Me Maybe. I think it’s funny, though. Second, we have a video that you likely have seen before, but I just don’t understand. And finally, we have a video that just makes me laugh every time I watch it.
That’s all for this week’s surprisingly short Mod Report, as always, join us live every Sunday at 7 PM Pacific on http://www.twitch.tv/themodreport! And also, join me on http://www.twitch.tv/cliffjameston Wednesdays and some Saturdays around noon to watch me work my way through my whole Steam Library! It’s gonna take a while…August 20, 2012 at 2:53 am #48828

Well done Cogs! (thanks for the bucket as well)
I can see why COMs might not be as needed as in earlier days; I hope you consider some kind of training or trial level position for future MODs. Nothing needed presently, but more of a down the line, prepare for the day when it’s needed kind of thing.
Great job koodoos to Silent, the Crew, and all the Minecraft Olympians! That was a marathon! (pun probably intended)
And now, back to your regularly scheduled madness…August 21, 2012 at 4:27 pm #49081
Any word on the new build of bukkit that was released? From various message boards I have been reading it seems that 1.3.1 -r2.0 is FAR FAR more stable than 1.3.1-r1.0
And that bukkit is completely skipping 1.3.2 as it only has a couple bug fixes that are fixed in bukkit already.August 22, 2012 at 1:59 pm #49218
Well, DawnHawk, if you put the song on YouTube and give it to the mods, I’d think that they’d add it to the playlist.
Speaking of which, if I will get Theweirdomaxim to upload our anthem to YouTube, can it be added to the playlist?
