  1. Hello Garnet Gamers, it's 4:30AM, me and our host Ertug are exhausted, we just finished off transferring all of Garnet's valuable items to a new location. Rust was taken off of our old machine, and put onto a more than twice as powerful machine in order to offer better performance. I kept our old machine in order to dedicate it towards the expansion of our Murder and TTT gamemodes which have been performing VERY well thanks to our great staff team. Our website was taken off from your typical $20 a month VPS and put onto its very own server machine as to offer dedicated performance. Anything related to MySQL should now performance incredibly quickly, whether that be DarkRP itself, MilitaryRP whitelisting, DarkRP inventory system, our forums, and our donation portal Hopefully you're able to see these changes as our active forums now load in well under a SECOND. Big thank you to our host Ertug for staying up this late and making sure there's absolutely no errors for us in our new location (even though they may very well be issues popping up at a later time). Fortunately for him he was able to head to bed as soon as this process was over. Unfortunately for me, I still have many hours left to fix up our 2x server, as well as continue to work on a few misc updates for our servers. I will likely pass out shortly and be asleep for a very long time, because this "shift" working on Garnet today has been over 24 hours long. RIP Hope you all enjoy the changes that have occurred/are upcoming! Garnutter
  2. Upgrade completed, although, Garry's Mod has not been affected yet, and will be pushed back to a later date.
  3. At 3AM EST our entire network will be shutting down for an upgrade. This downtime may last anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour (4AM EST) however, i'm expecting to run into issues the following day that may interfere with our servers, so I will be around to trouble therm as they come! Changes Occurring Purchased 2 extra servers, for a total of 4 Website taken off of a 'VPS' and put onto its own dedicated machine - we will no longer share resources with anybody else, and as such, our website will run much faster. Rust's server content will be moved from an outdated 7700k-based machine, to a 9700k machine, allowing us to let 350 players play simultaneously over 3 servers (as opposed to 2 servers at 275) TTT and Murder have been moved to their own dedicated server machine (7700k) as to allow us to have more roleplay-based servers running on our main rig alongside DarkRP and MilitaryRP Thank you for your patience, hopefully all is smooth sailing!
  4. Accepted I can say that out of the entirety of the 2x server, you are probably the member who I most frequently have a conversation with and I do think we would work together really well!
  5. Denied You created an alternative account to +1 your staff application, and I consider that very scummy (especially the portion where you made up a fictional story about your own kindness).
  6. Seems a bit contradicting to state that you don't have alot of hours, but you can make up for it by getting more hours (???). Furthermore, playing the server for a mere 17 hours a day doesn't seem very healthy and I would advice against it. Please report back when your playtime is north of lets say 40 hours.
  7. Well, with your current activity levels on the 2x server you would've easily been accepted, however, the application is severely lacking. I would suggest you build upon it and repost
  8. Denied Unfortunately I would like to see more hours from you as to ensure you enjoy the server/community, and as such would be dedicated to it!
  9. Unfortunately you got banned for cheating and as such you are ineligible to staff (let alone play Rust).
  10. For the sake of my sanity, I will be giving this schedule a go for a period of 29 days and seeing if this is a more effective way to manage the community Updates may be less frequent, but more in-depth Sunday Teamspeak/Discord Availability 4-8PM EST Consultations and/or one-on-one sessions Mapping As necessary Monday DarkRP Updates - Suggestions - Reports & Appeals Tuesday Community-Wide Updates - Suggestions - Reports & Appeals Wednesday Rust Updates - Suggestions - Reports & Appeals Mapping as necessary Thursday Donation Support All Day Friday MilitaryRP Updates - Suggestions - Reports & Appeals Saturday Staff Meeting as necessary Community-Wide Updates - Suggestions - Reports & Appeals Mapping as necessary

  13. This screenshot here would really set the mood for the amazing experience on Garnet. PTL IM GAY PTL I HAVE AIDS
  14. @PrisonNightmare one thing i should've mentioned is that the chatbox would most definitely get in the way :^(
  15. I'm currently working on a new version for our loading screen on both DarkRP and MilitaryRP that'd consist of screenshots from actual gameplay on said servers If you have any funny/cool/interesting pictures taken from the server, feel more than free to share them here, and they could be featured on the loading screen! Thank you everybody.
  16. To anybody who needs a better idea of what's happening on my end: Once you attach a transaction ID to the search, it will legitimately not allow you to look for anything older than a year. I'm not sure if this is a bug, but we will have to wait and see
  17. To whom it may concern, it appears that PayPal no longer lets recipients and senders view transactions that are over a year of age. As such, I can no longer provide support to donations that are over a year old. I'm not sure what the reason is for this change, and it may just be temporary, but I've spoke to other PayPal merchants like myself and they confirmed the same thing is occurring to them. To my best knowledge, PayPal is legally required to store data for up to 7 years due to 'statute of limitations' or taxation, so i'm not sure why this change. I'm sure I will be receiving alot of backlash for this, however, please know it's entirely out of my control, and due to the sheer amount of chargebacks and disputes that come with the nature of Garry's Mod (anywhere from 10-33% of transactions at a given year) I cannot blindly reassign packages without a transaction ID. PS this is what transaction history looks like on my end (trying to look up a transaction made in 2017)

The contest help will be for the funniest clips taken on our servers throughout the years. In order to participate, your video must be uploaded to YouTube and title appropriately, IE: "Garnet Gaming - Title". Once the video is uploaded, post it as a link to this thread so it is embedded, and provide some context if necessary. Failure to title your YouTube video appropriately or make a proper embedded post will disqualify you from participation. The judging board is REDACTED for the time being Prizes will be laid out in the following fashion NOTE: prizes can only be redeemed on one single account, and cannot be currency items, IE: RP cash DarkRP Funniest Clip 1st place - $30 store credit 2nd place - $15 store credit 3rd place - $5 store credit MilitaryRP Funniest Clip 1st place - $30 store credit 2nd place - $15 store credit 3rd place - $5 store credit
  19. Steam Auth means you got banned by the developers, not the server. Turn off your cheats next time ?
  20. In that case, It is 5AM for me so I am headed to bed, however, i'd love to sit down on Teamspeak/Discord with you tomorrow and go over some of the basics of staffing. Accepted! If you don't mind, go ahead and leave a comment on my profile/add me https://steamcommunity.com/id/garnetsgaming I will respond as soon as I wake up.
  21. Accepted User has been banned from the server
  22. About 6.5 years ago we started off as a small TTT and DarkRP community that I created after having a foul experience staffing for a careless owner who used his outrageously big donation money towards drugs use, I wanted to create a more attentive community that is frequently updated based off of community criticism back when "suggestion forums" were not a thing in 99% of communities. I didn't have any expectations as far as succeeding, and I humbly was looking forward to running a small 48 slot DarkRP server, however, within a year of playing everyday and staffing for 12 hours a day, taking sits, and having fun with players, the server ended up maxing at 100/100 within 3 months. From there we had our ups and downs having issues with DDoS and being down for 5 days out of the week, until I picked up a part time job and we were able to afford better premium hosting. We ditched our TTT server in favor of opening up a MilitaryRP server, which is about to celebrate its 4th birthday. The community has been evolving with old members leaving, getting replaced by newer members throughout the years. Our peaks were really decent, at one point having 3 servers maxed out at 100+ players with StarwarsRP (which had unfortunately not made a return in 2 years) and things were going really well. I took a 8 month hiatus to deal with personal matters last year, however, I came back towards the end of 2019 refreshed and eager to get our community to grow to its next level along with the support of many. After spending thousands of dollars on a Rust server that never picked up in population, I received the help of many, especially @421 sm0k meth who has been here throughout the years, and we managed to enter the top 10 in the respective category were hosting in within 3 months. As of today (2/8/2020, I'm extremely happy to announce that we have hit a new milestone at 600 concurrent players. This is a milestone that we have achieved thanks to our awesome players and staff alike - we have effectively doubled our playerbase with the introduction of Rust 5x, 2x, TTT and Murder in just the last few months. For the remainder of 2020 I will continue trying my best to provide new content to all servers, attempt to bring up our quality of staffing with the help of our administration team, as well as be more responsive to any major reports and support threads posted to keep you guys in this community which is a home to hundreds of players. We will most definitely still experience some downfalls here and there, but I can say that my efforts to grow the community are at an all-time high, and as are the efforts of many of our current high positioned staff members. I have taken 2 semesters off of university to pursue this community, and to say the least, I have no regrets because of the results that were produced. Thank you so much for your overwhelming support.

  24. That was irrelevant to your application, but on a different note, you have been very active and I wanted to figure out if you're still trying to pursue your rank?
