  • This weeks why to become a SM from Boon

    Ok so I feel we had a nice debate about becoming a Sm in my last post. Before I begin take notice, I know some people are too young, can't afford, or other extreme reason why they can't be an SM. But this message is to my fellow TGers that for some reason or another don't have the desire to become a SM. The reply I get is what do I get for becoming a Sm some extra forums I won't read, my own email i won't use. To be honest these are valid points, but they also are not. See it's not called The TG store where you can buy an email address and forum access like we are some paid tech forums or a porn site! It's called Supporting Member for a reason. The main reason to become a Sm is to support TG. You may say, if TG needs money to run it's servers make being a SM mandatory. No because as with all great things IE Democracy, it should be giving to the people for free, but this is not realistic.

    As with democracy, it takes funds to run, (taxes). Try going to vote and when you havn't paid your taxes. Which brings me to my next point, what do you get for becoming a SM in TG. There are unwritten benifits to becoming a SM. Some of the ones we all openly see is that SM's get priority for events, other things like classes in TG. But what are some of the other benifits, what benifits should be added.

    I feel, and admins read, this is not a complaint but a disscussion, that we should have certain benifits added or maybe they already exisit and we havn't been doing it. As an SM we should have priority IMO over non SM for slots in missions all the time, we should be the ones to vote or pick the missions everynight, if no admins are on a SM should be running the server with the ingame version of admin.

    Why do I say these things, do I feel they will bring in more SM's, I do, do I also feel they will push non SM's away from TG, it might, but that is why I am posting this, because like a democracy, TG is a group of people trying to do something great, I devote alot to TG, and others that arn't SM's do too, Skin, is a prime example I can think of. But I close with this try going to a movie and seeing it without any money, in the end it is human nature to expect something in return for money. This is true for everything, as I stated being an SM is about supporting TG, but its also about the returns.

    People always expect something in return. People that donate to charity even expect something in return, and what they get is that good feeling inside for helping people. See te human nature aspect, nobody does anthing really if they don't gain something in the end. What to I feel I get from TG and being an SM. I get to play on the best Arma 2 servers around, and got to make my own IHS. This might not be enough for some people but it is to me. So please if you can afford $8 a month, or for my euro bro's I'll have browna convert it lol, please become a supporting member today.

    My Kingdom for a paragraph break!!

    But well said otherwise. My drunken rants are rarely quite so intelligent.. usually something about how I'm the colour blue, or something like that.

          What's this talk about Brownas cookies? Cause all this talk is actually making me want to believe that Browna will post an actual cookie via post although he will just use the money to buy one and post it "cheap class" to your letter box and get lost in the process. lol ITS A JOKE!

          Seriously though, I am thinking about becoming one. I'll take the el cheapo option please bartender!

            I understand lowspeed, you are always fun to play with, I would like to see you be a SM, but my rule is RL always takes priority.

              I was a supporting member before, during arma 1 but after awhile I didnt see the advantage or the disadvantages of being an SM, the disadvantage is I cant afford to be spending money.

              I have to say though being an SM in arma doesnt have a lot of advantages, unlike other games we dont run scripts to hold spots for SM or have any events.

                Feelings mutual. Afterall, we're all here to unwind and have fun. Otherwise, it'd be called TacticalWorker. :)

                      Weve been coming up with ways to sweeten the deal for ArmA2 SMs. While as of right now you don't get SM private events (Possibly going to change that) you do get priority in public events which usually have too many people sign up. Also sorry to hear about your financial issues Adept, while I am unemployed and can barely afford an SM I still manage to pay for it.

                          ...I'm not entirely sure how boondock did this. A long, run on paragraph has seemingly resulted in multiple new SM's. I do believe we've found the next Kissinger. This man has a gift of persuasion, he does.
