    This is short history of community main events - name changes, MC releases, server launches and shutdowns.
    Event dates were shifted to nearest Friday (except Minecraft stuff) - this table was made with resolution of one week - removed event table from rooster, since its here now.
    Beginning of next year was marked with gray background.
    Date is written in US format.
    Temporary servers are excluded from server list.
    In yellow I marked when each era began.

    I changed it slightly - I adjusted Minecraft release dates to actual dates, added major community milestones and added release date of GMOD ;^)

    Also there should be three TTT releases on there I believe (the first one with Baker as admin, second one with ronaldo, third with me)
    EDIT: And the third and final one released in 2015 not 2016

    When Ronaldo TTT existed?
    Was it unofficial server after Baker shut down server and you launched it?

    Here's Baker's TTT:
    8/29/2014Garry's Mod - Trouble in Terrorist Town v1 launch
    10/17/2014Garry's Mod-Trouble in Terrorist Town v1 shutdown
    And Ronaldo / yours TTT:
    3/15/2015Garry's Mod - Trouble in Terrorist Town v2 launch
    9/6/2015Garry's Mod - Trouble in Terrorist Town v2 shutddown (Ronaldo resigned and you took over.....)
    9/23/2015Garry's Mod - Trouble in Terrorist Town v3 launch (releasing it couple weeks later)
    Found it!
    Apparently recaps were massacred in 2015 - their formatting was broken. Also there were no recaps between May and September.
    No wonder I didn't spotted TTT stuff in September.

    Also were there only 3 Solitude servers?

    Edit: Added server counts :)

    I created nice table showing what servers we had in the past ;)
    Server state is for first day of each month.
    Is this accurate?

    Added staff count. Here we can see our staff count crashing in 2012/2013 (Classic losing popularity meant less staff), and being on downward slope after 2013 year.
    Also I predict our staff count jumping above 40 people from current 26/26 Mods+
    Hopefully Primordia and DarkRP are The Answer for our popularity issues ;^)
    Getting 16 staff split on 2 upcoming servers isn't particularly hard job hopefully ;)

    I changed my prediction of GMOD DarkRP release to 30rd December.
    My bet on Primordia is 51%/49% on 16th/23th December.
    I picked Fridays as we usually release servers on Friday.

    We have 31/32 Mods+
    My bet for first January 2017 is that we have 42/45 Mods+
    We are on the track. Probably we will reach high 30's - I picked 42, as this is The Answer.


    Okay moved launch of Primordia to 26th December.
    Predicting 36/37 staff for first January.

    davidjl123 I remade short history of this community ;)

    On 1st January we still don't have DarkRP released, and we have 34/35 Mods+

    We have 32/34 Mods+

    I guess I forgot to add community server/staff state on 1st October.
    At that point we had 23/24 Mods+ and 3 Minecraft servers + GMOD TTT.

    Quarterly update:
    As for beginning of new year we have 15 (not counting SMP/TTT staff) Mods+
    We have 3 servers: Create, AoD and RoF.
    SMP is under development with four staff, and TTT is under maintenance with five staff.

    Who are the five TTT staff?

    Because I'm pretty sure Fly, Pika Pika and Prime are never coming back.

    In all seriousness they all still have Moderator rank on forums
    /blame @admins Infected_alien8_
    What about these TTT Moderators?
    Can I remove them from google staff roster? I have them listed (and SMP staff on unrelated note) here.
    They aren't listed on forums staff roster though.

    It didn't count as official server.
    We had our classic build server up to February 2011.

    I remember building tons of Deathrun maps for Lava Survival on that server. I'm certain that other players used Scottish to build maps for the servers too

    Even though one of our members made this server, it wasn't official one, just our mapmakers decided to use one made by Scotty.
    If it was official, Scotty would be server administrator.
