No forum thread for this one because it's rather important, or rather because it doesn't need one.
We're within a week of Hallowe'en, with Valve having launched the (very lacking) obligatory Scream Fortress update, it's usually about time to launch our own. However, there's been a lot of discord (pun not intended) within the team as of late as a sort of follow-up to the fuckfest of September (which managed to cancel our summer event) as if it wasn't enough of a "fuck you" from the heavens.
Which brings me to the meat of this post.
There's good news and bad news I have for you: The good news is that the vast majority of work for our event/update is already done and ready for deployment. Server-side code, assets from our talented asset man RatX
and most of the items on offer are already ready for use (as far as I know).
The bad news is that we've got no-one to design (or really work on) the webpage end of things, since the event webpage design used to be handled by someone else who is now working elsewhere, we've been on an increasing uphill struggle.
I really don't like asking outside of my staff for these sorts of things, but if you're reading this and you've got some knowledge in webpage design, please
get in contact with me. (Side note, PHP knowledge is a bonus. Yes, we're insane for using it. Good choices were never my forté.)
If you're interested, Send me a friend request over Steam
(and leave a comment saying it's for this, too. I ain't psychic, but I wish I was) along with some examples of work and I'm prepared to negotiate payment for helping out. (Yes, real dollars/euros/pounds/yen/vietnamese dongs. Or TF2 items, whatever suits you.)
In a perfect world, I wouldn't have to write such an announcement making me look like an incompetent fuckwad. Sadly, this isn't a perfect world and I've got to, anyway. Maybe next time.
Regardless, I hope you enjoy Scream Fortress, even if I don't. I'm taking a break from the game for my own sake, and once I get this hallowe'en event put to rest I can enjoy my break fully.
