I've also removed officer status from people who haven't been on Steam for over 100 days. This keeps active officers at the top of the list. If you're a Guardian and want back on officer status, just send me a pm.
2- Back in February Zedd had an interesting proposal to make a "Steam branch", like the Xbox branch that covered many games.
I was looking at the XBL branch recently and it covers all XBL games, and I'm thinking that the community would be better served if the "TF2" branch became the "Steam" branch.It had some responses- mostly negative, and kinda got left on the wayside because there are thousands of games available on Steam and it seemed a bit too big an umbrella to manage. I'd like to revive his proposal, but with some changes to keep it focused and manageable. Similar to the Xbox branch (Xbox branch doesn't really cover all the Xbox games anyways) in that it could cover several games, but distinct in the sense that it would be impractical to include all games available on Steam. Rather than focussing on one game, like TF2, what if the branch evolved to include popular Valve Games.
People who play TF2 are already jumping into whatever game they please, this would just be a way to make events and organize things, and get people informed en-masse as to what is being played on a particular day.
As a start, the branch could cover
HL2: DM, CTF
Portal 2 co-op
Some of these games we are able to provide a server for (CS, DoD, HL2, TF2, GM) If leadership were to organize polls, we could choose to run certain games & have a kind of rotation. Others games could be self hosted. It doesn't just have to be Valve & I don't think we need to be strict here- I think the way the branch could go is just based on some consensus of what games are played, and soem strategy of advertising SoC and holding events.
