    @openyafaceup I can't give awards to those who don't have a forum account, as that's how its tied to the Hive and is how you redeem your badges.

    Every time you ask for troubleshooting without providing system info, ATI adds a rendering bug for an upcoming game.

    I also nominate @Oozle, he has always stuck by the community and even hosted WANS lans at his own expense (back when NS1 was the go), and brought lots of muffins ect to stock up the cafeteria at his own expense. He always has servers we play on. Oozle has contributed a lot more then what I have posted, and he deserves the reward!

    Thanks

    I further nominate @Oozle, ever since i started playing NS2 there has always been an "Oozles Natural Selection 2 Server" in aus and even when the community nearly died at the start of the year he still kept at least one up. Not to mention, "Join Date: 2003-11-17" i mean come on, man has been around since the early days and he defiantly deserves the utmost of praise. Cheer Oozle.

    I nominate @Oozle for giving me a pot leaf badge when I asked for one. A true hero of AusNS2.

    Oh, and also for all the other stuff that's already been mentioned. But mainly for the pot leaf. That's the important thing.

    I'm also here to nominate Oozle. An almost constant presence on the AUSNZ server lists especially now in the past year as the AUSNZ community took a serious dive and a more recent resurgence. He's been running pub, comp, and mod servers for so long and has always been helpful and paying for the servers by himself.

    He's made a real stellar effort for our portion of the community which deserves to be recognised more widely.

    I would like to nominate @Oozle . As far as I can remember, I always see his server up for the AUS/NZ(and SEA) community to play. I reckon at least 3 years(sometimes off and on) but there was always Oozle's Server to play on. So yea, it will be great if he can get a badge for that.


    I would also like to nominate @BladeyBlade (BLD) , @Scatter and @xuu (Kid edited) (trying to find his forum acc atm) for their contribution of servers as well both for PUGs/Scrim and Pubs. @bld in the past have been contributing servers(Dangerzone.com.au) for a long time previously and were times took over oozle's for certain time.

    There's 1 more person @mr.Amckern, he probably has no account but I would like to highlight him and say thanks for his past contribution for his server in the past as well(1-2 years+). He had the lowest ping for me @ 150 so in biasness I prefer his server lol. otherwise I would be playing at 200-300.


    +1 @Katzenfleisch + @Phoenix_Faded_Mod for his interesting mod.


    Thanks to these guys and the existing Squad5 people for their contributions

    @Oozle @Scatter and @kid seconded. These guys kept servers going back when even the official ones were dying out in Aus and the game seemed on its last legs. Glad to see it limping on.

    Also you know, patriotism represent our country and all that shit.

    I nominate:

    @deathshroud for making the maps: ns2_hydra, ns2_forge, ns2_forgotten and making old broken maps again compatible!

    @Katzenfleisch and @Phoenix_Faded_Mod for maintaining and updating the Faded Mod.

    @matso should be promoted to Squad 5 Gold for all his work he has done for NS2.

    @Brute for creating Wonitor, an NS2 Server Statistic tool.

    @Person8880 for Shine Administration

    @BabblerKing a.k.a @ATF, who would have deserved the Squad5 badge as much as me. Without him I could have probably closed the server long time ago.

    Quoting this again to remind people what a bad development and community interaction policy looks like. Lets go down the list. See if you can find exactly where each point is hit.
    -Contradicts community feedback by vaguely insisting a bad change has been "positive"
    -Decrees that the change is permanent despite overwhelming community outcry in the negative
    -Misrepresent the arguments people are using in order to get an easy position to defend your change from.
    -Fail to make any real arguments in favor of your position other than the aforementioned "its positive"
    -Claim to understand complaints immediately after failing to properly interpret and respond to a quote in the same post.
    -Claim that holes left by the newly missing experiences are being filled by unrelated and half baked mechanics.
    -Ignoring community feedback, then retroactively pretending that changes made personally were based on community feedback.

    I would also like to nominate @Oozle and @Scatter

    Without their efforts, I believe the Australian community would have died ages ago due to the lack of servers / decent servers.

    Thanks for all your work!

    Nominating @Brute too, for the reasons given above, for the willing help he gave me in lua programming, and for solving nasty launchpad issues (and some of you know how they can be painfull) and all of this by chat in a moment of need (like when I was releasing an upgrade for the Faded mod while there was a game in progress and only 20 minutes left for me before the changemap to publish what should have been published)
    Faded mod ( Forum Thread - Steam Workshop - Mod Repository - Mod Guide )
    Defense mod ( Forum Thread - Steam Workshop - Mod Repository - [url=""]Mod Guide (comming soon)[/url] )
    FlameSentry mod ( Forum Thread - Steam Workshop )

    Chiming in again for @xuu & @Scatter for the same reasons as @Oozle . If it weren't for these three and @Mr.Amckern the OCE NS2 community would have died along with our official servers years ago.

    Added the current member list and would like to suggest to nominate @remi for his work at https://github.com/sclark39/NS2Elixer and support of other ns2 modders
    also initiated/organized the ns2_jambi project, made player names on the minimap, phase gate prediction, primeable power nodes, contributed to NS2+, and then all my work on the CDT.

    Speaking of jambi. It never would have finished without @xtcmen's diligence.

    Oh hey, XTC is already on there. :)
