The FUN-GINEERS TF2 : CP | PL
Server Address: 126.96.36.199:27115
The rules are simple, break them, and it will result in a kick or a ban. They are as follows.
New server information and updates will be posted in this thread.
Penguin, or ☆Penguin The Fluffy[MCA] as his screen name currently stands, has begun having problems with people impersonating him in the hopes to steal items and information from people on his friends list. Knowing many of The Fun-gineers are friends with Penguin, it's important to get the word out.
After speaking with whom I assume was Penguin and not a replicant, he divulged this advice to help identify this handsome rogue vs the other, less attractive, shittier impostor rogues.
Quote from: Penguin
...Tell them that if anyone adds them claiming to be an alt to remove then and if they claim to be my main to just look at the games. If I dont have at least 600 or to check for drunken f00l from Valve on my friends list to make sure it is really me

That's right, we're bringing it back to roots here. After a short hiatus, the FUN-GINEERS Team Fortress 2 server is back, and better than ever! Among some of the new changes to the server, the host has been moved to a more central location in Dallas, Texas, hopefully equalizing the ping for all the poor west coasters.

The rules are still the same, please don't be a dick. If you need any admin assistance, I'll be in the group chat. Just pop in a say hello!

Yes, we realize the website and Steam group have pretty inactive for some time. Digitalfox has already elucidated on why that was, but the important thing is, we're coming back bigger than ever! That said, we haven't completely been inactive the last few months. We've been putting together everything to get the site back in motion, and we're still doing what we do best... hanging out at night and playing lots of video games.
If you haven't already swung by, or just haven't popped your head into the Mumble server in a while, it's almost always jumping at night with people playing all sorts of games.
You can download Mumble here. Once you have, the server info is:
We're currently running Starbound and Minecraft servers at the same address, with a rather busy population of builders and adventurers. By way of shooters, we've got pretty regular nights of CounterStrike: Global Operations, and long ArmA III play sessions. League of Legends players are regularly grouping together in the Mumble server as well. And that's just what we've got going regularly. There are always people kicking around trying new games, playing the newest Steam deal, or just picking up an old game for fun.
Come join us! For those of you coming back... welcome back, there's much more to come.

As many of you are no doubt aware, Frothy, one of the founding members of our community, has decided to take a hiatus from the Fungineers for an undetermined length of time. Android, the second-most-senior member, is busy with an exciting job in the gaming industry and is unable to take over in his stead. Thus, it falls to me, the third-most-senior member, to take the reins and hopefully guide our community forward. I'd like to thank Frothy and Android for being the heart of this community for the past few years, and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. Without you guys, there would be no Fungineers.
Little will change, with two exceptions: I will now not only be managing our Mumble and Minecraft servers, but the website and forums as well.
It's fairly well-known I'm not much of a people-person, and bearing that in mind, Burnout, another longtime member of this community, will be responsible for organizing events, gameplay sessions, and other non-technical aspects that are, above all else, the things that make us a community.
Watch this space in the coming months for new events. I apologize for the lack of activity and leadership in the past few months, and hopefully we can get this ship sailing again. Thank you everyone who has made this wonderful community possible. Let's keep gaming Fun, and I look forward to seeing you all in Mumble and in-game.

REJECTED VALENTINE'S DAY CARDS
* * *A few years ago, we started a bad Valentine's Day card contest and it got a little out of control (in the best possible way). Serialbear changed the way we look at this loving holiday with cards by featuring the world's most prominent serial killers as their subjects. This year, we're taking a step away from mass murderers and looking at much more adorable creatures of destruction: POKEMON.
Show us your best Valentine's Day themed Pokemon jokes and puns!

Community events seems to be a bit broken So I'm posting it here.
It's getting to be that time of year where people buy other people gifts. So as has become Fungineer tradition, it's time for the Semi-Secret Santa! You should all know the rules by now, but in case you don't, it goes like this...
Post in this thread saying you want to participate, and you will be put on the list to both send and receive a steam game worth at least 10 dollars to and from another random person on the list!
You can spend more than 10 if it turns out you really like the person you're gifting to, but you might not get the same in return.
There you have it! Update your wishlists! I hope you enjoy your holidays, folks!

As I'm sure you've all noticed, there's been some strange stuff happening with fungineers.net. I'll start from the beginning:
3 days ago, files on my webspace vanished. The missing files were fairly important, as they kept the forum in working order. With the help of my service provider, we successfully reverted to an old backup of the server and it seemed to fix the problem... until the next day when the exact same files went missing. We reverted again and I immediately went through all of my files in search of anything suspicious and changed passwords wherever possible.
I then woke up today to see it had happened a third time. The exact same files missing. My service provider then told me the most likely culprit was outdated PHP scripts as they are usually most vulnerable to attack. It didn't take me long to realize the only PHP I use on my server was this forum.
So what you're currently looking at, this outrageously boring webpage, is the result of updating the forum software to a completely new version that Simple Machines released about a year ago. Mind you, our last install was technically up to date, but it was up to date within version 1.1 of the software. We are now the future using version 2.0.
I know not that many people use these pages anymore... but for those of you that still do, I apologize for the annoyance and downtime.
Over the next few days you'll notice things moving and changing as I work to get our website back to its former glory.
