Hello!
Why hello everyone! My name is Nillbugwtw, or William. I live in the Bay Area of California and am currently in my nth year of studying Software Engineering.

What do you do for EscapeRestart?
While I’m a Community Admin, my specific role is that of Treasurer/Bill Payer/Finances Guy. I process the donations from both our Patreon and single donation page and use them to pay our web hosting and dedicated server fees for the month. This isn’t something I could do alone, but thanks to the generous donations of users like you, we’ve been able to support ourselves exclusively from community donations, and not from the admins own wallets, for a year and a half now – but more on that in a separate post. As a CA, I also consult with Hex and tnm when we make community-wide decisions or head staff changes.

Why do you staff for EscapeRestart?
When I first joined EscapeRestart Blocktopia TheOne’s in 2010, I was 15, a sophomore in high school, fresh out of Runescape, and using a lot more “u” than “you” in my chats. The next eight years sent me on a journey that found me at every rank on Zombie Survival, eventually running the server, switching over to running Create Buildbox after Classic shutdown, and ultimately to this position as a CA. I found myself maturing with each promotion, having the responsibility of managing more people and projects. While the responsibilities I’ve had in this community will never find their way onto my resumé, the experienced I gained, especially during my formative high school years, I’ve applied in team-leadership opportunities both in employment and in academics, and I’ll be forever grateful to this community for smacking the Runescape...
The 7th GameNight is upon us!
When? This Saturday of course! Here is a countdown and the time for the event and since you won't be clicking these links anyway:
Saturday, 26.05., right after the meeting as always! 20:30 UTC

Hey hey what a surprise, BoardGameOnline has won... Also the discord poll is still open, on when you think the GameNight should take place. So just vote on it, it's just one click.

Boardgame Online is a free online game with a... certain kind of humor. The aim is to be the first to reach the finish line (and not get nuked by the UN)

These are the games you may vote on
[​IMG]
HEY HEY VOTE ON THESE:

Terraria
A minecraft clone in 2D(who would even CONSIDER playing that?)
STEAM LINK (200MB)

Boardgame Online
If you enjoy suffering and bullying, this is certainly a game to play. It is probably worth mentioning that it is slightly... well, weird
It's in browser
GAME LINK

OpenLierox
It looks like worms... But it is in realtime. Based on Liero, it's a shoot-em-up. There are several possible configurations. It has to be downloaded and installed(more info to come)
GAME LINK (75MB)

Supreme Commander Forged Alliance
Because you won't get rid of these RTSs. It's regarded as a legendary RTS and still has active servers... that is if you make an account on...​

Introduction
Hello! My name is Hexical (or Bailey!), and I'm a Senior in Highschool. I also plan on attending my local college once I graduate from Highschool this month! I live in the US, specifically in Michigan which is honestly a terrible state but what can you do.
What do you do for EscapeRestart?
I'm currently a Community Admin for EscapeRestart, and my niche for the job is Community Relations / Events. I plan / run events, help users plan our CDE's, and make sure our user base is getting along as well as possible, along with ensuring our staff our getting along, making progress, and doing what they need to do. I also help make decisions, and help with the decision making progress when there is staff discussion.

I also am Create Administrator, where I'm actually doing a large revamp of Create (you can read more about it here), and am planning on doing a lot of fun things with the "new" server! Along with making the new server, im continuously updating and trying to squash as many bugs as I can on our current server, which has been working well.
Why do you staff for EscapeRestart?
Long story short, I really really enjoy this community. I, like others, have been around fairly long, and have had a lot of good memories made on this community. I can remember being 12/13 and playing on EscapeRestart (Blocktopia) constantly, and making new friends and relationships. I want to be here to help other people experience what I did, to make sure our servers are still going on and providing the area that I love so much.

This community is important to me in my life, and I enjoy being here and having a helping hand in it. It's fun (albeit stressful at some points), I've made even more great memories, and just knowing that I have a hand in helping others feel what I used to feel years ago makes me happy....​

Hello everyone!

It was brought to our attention recently that some may be confused about what roles us admins have (especially CA's) and what we do, so we decided to start making weekly posts with introductions to our admins! These posts will have details about what they do for the community, their specific roles, and if they want to even some things like like to do to pass time / as a hobby.

We hope this will clear up some confusion for some, and help users know our admins better also. We want our community to know our Admin team well, and connect with them well also - we hope these weekly posts will help that connection.

Starting tomorrow, I will post my Introduction, and then every week we will go down the line (CA's -> Admins). We will most likely have a general set of questions, and then have the admin add anything else they want to include. If you have any questions about this, feel free to leave them below and I'll answer them as best as I can!

Thank you for reading! - The Administrator Team​

With a slight delay, I announce the sixth GameNight!
What is it about? Hats? Some weird games nobody ever heard of?
One thing is almost certain. It's free!
As always, next Saturday, 12.05. right after the meeting at 20:30 UTC. Be there!
Countdown

And we've got A Pile of Hats!

Yes, it's Team Fortress 2
Free game on Steam, so go get it here
A Free 2 Play Shooter with different classes which also have their own personalities.
Also lots of hats. Why even?

Anyway, today after the meeting it's going to be times for some hats! Be there! (or not)

Server details:
EscapeRestart Game Night | TF2
Just find it in the server list.

Open till Monday!

Important:
Since I am uncertain how well this is fairing, I would also like to ask for your opinion on the gamenights. This survey can also be done by people who didn't participate in the GameNights at all, just skip the questions until you come to the non-participant section.
I will rely on you guys being honest, so please only do the survey once and answer honestly

Depending on the game it will be possible to come and go at any time!...
