Hello everyone! I'm planning on doing a gmod event in the coming weeks, because TTT has been down for a while and I'm sure some players want their GMOD fix. I decided to pick 3 gamemodes and make a poll and let the community decide on what event they want. I'll leave a brief description of the 3 below with links to their steam page.

The Floor is Lava!

Remember playing The Floor is Lava when you were a kid, jumping around and avoiding the floor? Well this gamemode recreates this perfectly, with a few twists! Push and shove people to their demise, and be the last one standing to win the round.

Murder

A gamemode based around deception and murder, one person is a murderer, and the rest are innocents who must find out who is killing them off, and one innocent has a special weapon.. This is almost like a streamlined TTT

Battle Royale Plus

Who said you could escape the Battle Royale genre? Just have a fun time making it to the last survivor against the community, and it has a ton of cool features that I can't even begin to list here.

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=917910639

I'll leave the poll up for a week, and once thats done I'l begin to work on the event server. Thank you all for your time!
Hello everyone,

It's recently come to our admin teams attention that during a forum breach at the end of 2015 (You can view the announcement about it here), that username/email lists were leaked from the Admin Control Panel on the forums. We take our users privacy seriously, and would like to stress that these lists do NOT include user passwords, which are not available at all from the ACP or anywhere else on the front-facing side of the forums. We knew in 2015 that the breach did not reach the backend of the forums, where all passwords are protected and hashed correctly. This was not a database breach, only a breach of the front end of our forums control panel.

After the breach in 2015, we upgraded our forums to include 2 Factor Authentication to improve our security. We'd like to take this moment to recommend users to take advantage of this extra security, both on our forums - and any other website that offers the service (email, other forums, etc.) You can go here to add it to your account on our forums: https://escaperestart.com/forum/account/two-step

How was the list obtained? Within the ACP is a feature to send email blasts to users. This tool can also be used to generate a list of email addresses, in the same format as was found to be leaked. Because of how Xenforo saved admin logs in the version we were using during the breach, the email list access was not logged. As was noted in the thread at the time, investigations of backend access showed no malicious access of our webserver.

It looks like this on our Admin CP

All in all, there is nothing to worry about, but we decided to act upon it quickly to make sure users no rumours or the likes are spread - and make sure we notify users because they have the right to know when...
Guess what time it is! GameNight time! This Saturday, 14.04, directly after the meeting at around 8:30PM UTC![Translator] You are free to come and go, it should be possible to also join later on!

It has been decided! Transformice it is.


The game itself:
It is a pretty fun flashgame. Yes it is a flashgame, but it's free!
The goal? C h e e s e
You will have to parcour around obstacles to obtain the cheese and then you will also have to bring it back, meanwhile a shaman could also be present whose goal is to help the others and also obtain the cheese... Now a shaman doesn't actually have to help anyone and can as well just grief, which is a frequent occurence.

Hello ladies and gentlemen of the community.

As we all know the overhaul was never a huge success. In the past few years we've done worse than ever. For a long time now I've had the dream of returning to our former glory.

So first of all I want to talk about my time as staff member recently. For a short while I was leading the deception project, HOWEVER, quickly it became apparent how demotivated the staff team was. Sadly nobody really feels like doing any work anymore. Nothing that we wanted was going according to the plan and all projects were failing. In one of the important meetings we had as admins we came to the conclusion that it might be best to shut down EscapeRestart soon.

In the end I resigned because I was so heartbroken that it was likely going to be the end of the community. Lately there was hope with the temporary SMP being such an enormous success and it looked like ER was making a great comeback. Then the worst thing imaginable happened. The best and most important staff member RESIGNED, DANNI. Without Danni it's clear that we cannot go on as a community and we're likely to fail within the coming week.

But fear not members, I have always been ready for this. Together with Freaky and Later_Gator (aka Joxey) we will make sure the legacy of this community will continue. With permission of the admins OF COURSE we are going to bring back Blocktopia as something to follow up on ER's demise. Right now we don't have a lot but with your help we can make our community great again. In the coming weeks we will sort out everything in our discord and get rolling. Here's the link: https://discord.gg/AFfqRJ8

Our plan is to have a great discord community and set up some fun server that can be played on with friends and strangers alike. There is not a lot so we hope you can be patient and help us out whenever we need.

We hope to see you around in Blocktopia!

With kind regards,
The Blocktopia staff team.
