  1. It has been noted thanks.
  2. Hello Moped, We kept the Takistan Life server up until players did not want it any longer which ultimately closed down due to only having 5 players max at one point. All our time in running servers is now invested into Arma 3 and we do not plan on reopening the Arma 2 server.
  3. I saw this on facebook wont be long till they get beheaded for making it either xD.
  4. Happy new year.
  5. SERVER INFORMATION

    As you all have noticed the teamspeak and servers are down and that is due to our host doing maintenance, It should be back to normal shortly.

     

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

      Can't wait till the server launches because the moment you spawn in and leave civ spawn Im going to rob you and kidnap you every time and you will be the easiest to find since you will be waddling along like you shat yourself with a quadruple chin and webbed feet.

      :D

  7. And you will always be a strange dick
  8. I never noticed this thread, Monster Cat is great haha downloaded all 14 albums xDD Its live through YouTube as well, exact same thing.
  9. BE WARNED THIS THREAD IS LONG. Seeing as I am trying to get the community as a whole involved on the forums Its about time I posted here. I am going to split this into 2 sections as it will look like a long story so If you cant be bothered to read I would not even start First section is about my journey role playing in British Borders and the second section is my Staff journey. My role play Journey. As most of you know my name is Adam, I joined BB back in late 2014 with the intention of looking for a serious role play server to commit to. The best bit about finding BB was that I had only played a little bit of DayZ and British Borders was the first role play server I had been on. During my time in British Borders I had met a huge mixture of people who I will never forget and the journey through BB was like a roller coaster. There was always something different going on each day from meeting new people to huge role play events and more. As I journeyed through BB I decided to get membership to apply for factions on the Arma 2 server. Just from playing and encountering others from the police force I decided to take that route, During my first time in the police force I did not really know anyone and there was people who I did not like and just felt that the police force standards were slipping and seeing as I was a new member I felt I could not really do anything about it at the time. As time went on I had some IRL things coming up so I decided to leave police and join PMC (Serco) which was ran by Irish Ranger. PMC back then was awesome you would go on protection missions with professional looking equipment and the role play of essentially being an armed body guard was really fun. Over a short duration Irish Ranger had to leave us which ultimately led to Serco slowly falling inactive, Bare in mind at this time there was 3 PMC groups so people were always in competition. Once Serco members started to leave I decided that was the time to focus IRL and take a break from BB. Then it happened! I came back fully recharged and enthusiastic with the intention of helping to community as much as possible. Straight away I joined back into the police force sweating it out by playing every day and learning every single aspect. I turned it from playing casually into a full time dedicated responsibility to progress, I went through all the ranks from Cadet all the way up to police Sergeant with @Shaun running as chief inspector and Mr Jabbacake as commissioner. At this stage I had a strong understanding of the police force and could see where flaws lied and unfortunately there was a sad truth to what I have to say. Mr jabbacake had IRL issues and was innactive but fortunately we had Shaun at that time and seeing as he was chief Inspector he was allowed to run the police force and deal with 90%. Once you got to sergeant you start interacting with other sergeants and above on a more personal friends level seeing as you directly had to work with them since your helping run the police force. As I got to know Shaun and gained confidence throughout the whole community I decided to speak up and try to get change as I loved the police force but you could see it started to suffer. I sat down with Shaun and explained how I feel we needed a new commissioner and seeing as Shaun was doing all the high end responsibilities it would only make sense he got the position so me and Shaun went and spoke with @Maverickto try get some change. Once Maverick started dealing with the issue it lead to Mr jabbacake being removed because he just did not have the time. Now despite from my point of view Shaun would be the police member who would deserve the position the most there was an election system which had to decide to make it fair which I accepted. Now if anyone from the past reads this part and says I missed someone then I do apologise I have slept since then lol. The election system consisted of I think 4 people but I only remember 3. Shaun, Jamie, Rondal and they had to go round all police members over a duration and get support and convince all of the police force what they had to offer and what change they could bring and the decision would be decided by a vote at the end. In the end Shaun won the vote election and he became our police commissioner. For some strange reason I remember one thing that was mentioned and that was one of the people going for commissioner only had 1 vote and got destroyed but I wont name them. As time went on I progressed into the police Inspector role working with Kian. I also had completed every single police training and could do anything. After a while I felt It was time for me to progress to the next stage that I was aiming for which was SCO19 (Armed Response) So I put my application In and got accepted but I had to stick in the police force for a little while since numbers were low in the high ranks. I then moved into SCO19 with Aaron as the commander. I met some really nice people during that time such as @Alonand others. I progressed through the ranks slowly from Officer to Senior Officer and aimed for Marksman Instructor. As time went on my Staff responsibilities became high maintenance if you want to call it that and I decided to take up on helping the community more than my play time in game. At this stage I was in a staff position which meant I did not need to be in SCO19 to play it so I wanted to give that position to someone else so I did and left officially but continued to play with everyone. My Staff Journey My staff journey Is not very long in terms of much to explain but all time based. I started as a Trainee Support like everyone else dealing with Teamspeak permissions and helping with support cases, after 2 weeks the decision was to keep me so I was promoted to Support and carried on with my standard duties. 4 weeks later I moved to Senior Support with the same responsibilities. After 4 weeks I moved to Trainee Moderator dealing with in game rule breaks and processing teamspeak complaints. After another 4 weeks I got promoted to full Moderator which meant I could actively ban people who I see breaking rules and so on. This also lead to Me @Shaun& Clark becoming the most disliked staff members due to sitting in Civ spawn for hours watching everyone and banning everyone who broke rules. For some strange reason people did not like us because we caught them doing stuff they shouldn't be but hey sucks to be them Like I always say. Adam - Cry to someone who cares. After a further 6 weeks I moved to Senior Moderator and nothing changed at that stage I just did my usual responsibilities. Another 6 weeks I got Trainee Administrator which meant I could restart the server, check logs for hackers etc, run fixing scripts on the server and so on. Once I hit Trainee Administrator I then had a further 4 weeks of Trainee in order to become full Administrator but at the same time behind the scenes I was being trained for Staff Leader. Provided I did everything perfectly and passed my Trainee Administrator phase I would become the next Staff Leader with Gazmask. And I did that very thing I got promoted to Staff Leader working a long side with @gazmaskthen as time went on Gazmask had IRL things to deal with so he resigned and we brought in Jack. After a few months Jack left and I ran the staff team along side @Maverickuntil the Arma 2 server shut down. Just before the Arma 2 server shut down we reshaped the staff ranks to remove all Trainee & Senior ranks and removed the time based requirement. Also Staff Leader was renamed to Staff Manager & I was given Assistant Director. We also then brought in the Management rank which is designed to show who the main members that run the community is and who is making the decisions. Management consists of Director General, Assistant Directors, Directors, Owner. If you got to the bottom then congratz you only wasted 5-10mins of your life but hey now you know my story. If you need anything then just send me a message. Thanks Adam

  13. Tanoa Life Alpha 1.0 Delay Due to a few major developments the release of our Tanoa Life Alpha 1.0 has been delayed for 7 days and will now be released 27th December 2016. Collectively the management team and development team believed this was necessary to stabilise and release a working mission. It is important during this early stage that we ensure the testing environment in suitable for use, allowing us to best identify, diagnose and solve any problems or bugs that occur. We are currently working on the following to make Tanoa Life 1.0 available on the new date: Updating breakages due to updates in database extensions. Refining and completing the banking system. As part of the Alpha 1.0 we are please to inform you that our resource system will also be introduced giving you the option to fish in the rich tropical waters of Tanoa. On a side note we would like to wish every member a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the new year. Thanks
  14. Happy Birthday smegma chops.

      Thanks cock salad.

  15. We need to add a role play rule regarding role play names for example: All players must use a realistic role play name in game, failure to do so will result in a forced name change. Something on those lines.
