    Had some issues with my PS3 controllers so had to change which game I ran. Went with an any% run in Psychonauts. Managed to get to 54:04, which isn't world record level, but I can be happy with it. :lol: Edit: Got my run accepted on Placed at #25!

    Per standard team procedure, such a significant change needs to be approved and too few people commented on Pants' financial threads for there to be a clear consensus. For all I knew, everyone else was silently thinking to just burn through the money and shutter the doors. If you would like to lead the discussion on what game servers we keep up after the downsize (in a separate thread), that would be great. Servers stats are right here if you would like a reference:

    It's pretty clear that we're going to downsize no matter what so I think there should be a vote on what we're dropping rather than a needless vote of whether or not we're dropping it

    We've had a couple of discussions now about downsizing our dedicated box in order to save costs. As donations have been dropping, we're at an unhealthy level of loss but if we switched to Pant's recommendation, we would be in the green again with only $63 a month in regular costs. The downside is that we would have to scale down to 2 or 3 game servers at max, but frankly that's fitting for the smaller pool of our community still playing on our servers. Please vote in this thread if you support downsizing our box to Pant's recommendation. If we have 2/3 support by July 28th, we (Pants) will work with NFO to scale back and start saving money. A separate discussion will follow on what servers to have on the smaller box. NewVoteCounter

    Removed the "Who's Playing" script from the foot of the site. Saved a backup should we decide go back and update it so the information it displayed was more accurate.

    SGDQ just completed another fantastic summer event so now it's our turn, again. It's time for the Team Interro Done Quick - Summer Challenge to start! How will this work? From today, July 10th, to Tuesday, August 1st, anyone interested in participating should attempt to speed run a game of their choice. Pick whatever game you want, but keep in mind it should have some sort of clear end goal. You also set your own restrictions on the run. If you want to go 100% or without glitches/skips, that is perfectly fine. Once you've decided on the game and any restrictions, post what you'll run in this thread. If possible, it's highly encouraged that you stream your speed run attempt. If you can't or would rather not stream, simply record your best run and share it with the rest of the community. Don't worry about trying to set any world records, this is simply for fun. For people that have never tried speed running before, this is a great opportunity to try a fun new challenge while replaying a favorite game. General tips for beginner speed runners are explained over at the Speed Demos Archive. In addition to the satisfaction of beating a game super fast, anyone that streams or records their speed run and shares it here will get the special TIDQ forum medal! As usual, feel free to ask any questions that come to mind. I'll be trying to run the PS3 HD port of Jak and Daxter, any %.

    I support this idea for a good backbone to look towards. Figure out what size box we would need to run that/what is offered and adjust what we offer from there. As nice as it would be to keep even just 6 of our most popular servers, losing money won't help us in the long run. Not to mention, while the standard ports are nice, they're not necessary and we could cut those out to save costs. I'll ask that age-old question that keeps coming up that's borderline taboo, but has anyone kept an eye on the activity of the minecraft servers/do any of you reading this actively play on it? I'm curious because I know that minecraft takes up quite a bit of resources and if it's not being used, could definitely use with a cut as well. It would be nice if we could get a box with plenty of storage to keep all of these on there, but turn on/off as needed to keep up with community interests. That way we could flip on minecraft when it regains popularity, but use the extra resources for other games when it doesn't.

    Unless something changed, we're not paying on a per game server basis. We pay for server space and can have as many game servers running as those resources will allow. So while it's not bad to reflect on the value of the servers we offer, nixing them won't save us money. Last I checked, we only have two Gmod servers installed, anyway, one of which was turned off. For saving money, I'd suggest downgrading to a lower end server box that better fits our less demanding needs. Not sure if we have any service subscriptions, but if so, we may want to cut them.

    I'd say cut Gmod from 4 servers to 2 or maybe even just 1, cinema is mostly used just for events so it doesn't need a dedicated server and server 4 is an event server right now but we could do with just the 1 TTT server and the other for events like deathrun and prophunt and stuff. For TF2 I would suggest maybe dropping servers 10, 11, and 12, keeping 8 as the event server for when people actually want to play saxton hale and whatever extreme payload is @Pants or whoever is free: could you please send me a PM or steam message regarding a monthly subscription? I went to the paypal donation page but I didn't see a box to tick for recurring payments. Thanks! I'll also brainstorm some fundraiser event ideas / donation drive stuff, I'll post here for confirmation before I do anything concrete if that's cool with everyone else

    The annual SGDQ is starting today! They've got some cool games lined up. Money raised goes to Doctors Without Borders. Like the AGDQ back in January, we'll host our own speed run competition after SGDQ is over, so be prepared for that!

Day Eighteen

by SquareMEal on December 18th, 2013, December 18th, 2013 at 01:37 AM
Day eighteen is now upon us! If these were years instead of days, our contest would now be of legal age, graduating high school, and making plans for college. While our contest won't share it's thoughts on anything, you can! Using our site's blogging tool, create a blog today covering something you enjoy about Team Interrobang. You could write a sonnet about the wonders of Turbine, explain the finer points of dying within a minute of your Traitor round, or just say how much you "love"
