In effort to encourage people to spend time on our servers and reward those who do, we've created a new plugin that will track your hours per week and give you access to commands and perks based off that.
There are three tiers:
After 5 hours of playtime you will gain access to:
Green chat message color
sm_footprints - apply the TF2 Halloween footprint effects to yourself
sm_untaunt - stop taunting
After 10 hours of playtime you will gain access to:
Yellow chat message color
sm_annotate - annotate something
sm_deleteannotation - remove an annotation
sm_mutecheck - check who has muted you
sm_buildingcolors - change the color of your buildables
After 15 hours of playtime you will gain access to:
Orange chat message color
sm_colorme - colorize yourself
sm_hsay - display a hud message
sm_friendly - make yourself friendly
You can always check your rating with the command !rate
Suggestions are welcome on how to improve the system.

The Negroserver UGC Team will have their first Pre-season match Monday, January 20th, 2014 at 9:30 PM Eastern Standard Time, against the Kings of Nigeria. You are all invited and welcome to watch this exciting event live via Source TV, at 184.108.40.206:27045. Simply type "connect 220.127.116.11:27045" into your TF2 console and press enter. We would like to wish the best of luck to both teams and hope that everyone involved has a good time.
"Killstreak" related crashes
| Dec 11, 2013 09:10 am | 1 comment(s)
Due to the recent implementation of killstreak weapons, users who have installed custom client mods may crash when joining a server that has players with killstreaks. It would appear older HUD mods and custom particle effects will cause your game to crash, unless they are updated to support killstreaks. As more players acquire these items, this issue will become more prevalent. I have encountered 4 users with this issue, all were resolved by uninstalling these mods. The only mod that I can name is the "Pop It" medic taunt, due to its custom particles. Rest assured, though, this is not the only mod that will result in TF2 crashes when a killstreak is active. This issue probably affects a lot of players, but due to the current rarity of killstreak items, has probably not yet been identified and addressed by authors of older mods.
IF YOU CRASH WHEN JOINING TF2 SERVERS SINCE THE UPDATE, REMOVE YOUR GAY ASS MODS
Negroserver UGC Team 2013 Edition

Once again, we will be sponsoring a UGC Team. However, this time we won't be inviting our useless TF2 Idle Community, and as a result we expect a much more interesting result! For this, we have re-opened our Competitive TF2 server on port 27030, SourceTV is probably available on some other port. Since I don't know the specifics of REAL TF2 beyond Idling, I'll allow the Comp Team to explain anything I missed as they slowly make their appearances here. We wish them a fruitful season.

Forum Calendar works again, in case anyone noticed it was fucked up or missed its functionality. Added a new sub-forum for Children's Card Games, so that Deck Builds don't clutter a random forum and get lost between threads. We may once again be sponsoring a UGC Team in the near future. We are also considering the possibility of a Starbound server as this game develops. Our Negroserver Steam group, which sat near 400 members for a long time, is fast approaching 500. Also worth noting, 17 days until negroserver's 4th birthday. That is everything I can remember, have a good day and see you in game!

Sometime in the last 12 hours, our IP has changed to 18.104.22.168 Since our IP has not changed in quite a long time, it may take some time to recognize and repair any issues which might arise from an IP change. Our sub domain should begin pointing to the proper IP soon, allowing most of our services to return to normal operating conditions. You will need to re-add the source servers to your favorites. See you in game!
