  1. Rules: Don't be a troll Absolutely no bigotry of any kind. Leave your prejudices and in-tolerances at the door or you will be shown back out of it. Watch the profanity. No talking about religion, politics or Twilight. These topics always cause drama and mental trauma. No drama! In general just try to be pleasant. Oh, and perhaps avoid excessive flirty or sexual comments. I(@Gopher) don't mind it personally but this is the internet and it is difficult to always know when something is light-hearted fun and when it is creepy stalker and/or annoying.

  2. I'm retiring! I've been giving it much thought, for a very long time now. Today feels like the right time to step down as community admin. Today's Witcher episode, the last I will post on the forum, is called "The Great Escape" which amuses me so much. It has been a long long time since I started this adventure, all those livestreams, the guild, starting the original forum, and all; it has been a very great pleasure. I wanted to thank particular people who've been there along the journey but they're so numerous I don't even know where to start. And so I will just o/ to you all.

    Pcat's Retirement Post

    I want to thank you not just for the work on these forums but in helping me on so many occasions on so many different issues. You have been a rock for me to lean on so often that I cannot imagine where I would be without your help all these years. Thank you for everything you have done.

  6. So as some of you may know already, our beloved Community Admin @Philosophercat has retired. Don't fret though, she has taken on the role as Gopher's Advisor which means she will still be active within the community, it just means she won't be getting involved in moderation, and Staff work. Anyways, first off I would like to welcome our 3 new moderators: @Morrandir, @Just Louise, and @OutandBack. Please treat them well cause if you break them then that means I have to hunt down, and capture new ones. Also, no feeding them after midnight, I don't need them turning into gremlins. =P

  8. Got the idea to try and see if I could make a version of the Stiv logo that actually looked a bit like a gopher... Here's the result of my attempts: (Now, please don't take this as me wanting to encourage Gopher to change his logo or anything, just wanted to share it with the minions Maybe someone will find it amusing )

    Wiki and Cool moments

    I am thinking about trying to set up some sort of wiki on this website so that people can have a 'Stiv' wiki page and a 'Richard' wiki page etc. I was also considering a section in each for 'cool moments' where you guys could submit descriptions and links to me, reminding me of parts of my let's plays that made you chuckle or feel some sort of emotion. The sort of thing that might do well in a 'best moments of Jack' type video etc. Or a 'wheres Jzargo' montage If we added those and got them 'filled' would they be of interest?

  11. About a year and a half ago, I made a similar wallpaper that was pretty much just black and green with an inner shadow and a leather texture. Gopher uses it on Twitch and in his videos from time to time, (Which I think is AWESOME! The first time he used it, I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm really glad he liked it.) but I got a little bored of the design myself. So I made a new one! Wanted to do a bit more with this one. It's not perfect by any means, but I'm happy with it. Thought I'd share it with you guys as my first post on the forums. Hope you like it! Long days and pleasant nights.

  12. You are not privy to my thought process and I would thank you to not pretend otherwise. I do expect YOU to experience the exact same experience i had on single player. That would be ridiculous. You are not alone on this server. Yes that comes with different problems, and YOU (with the help of others if they so wish) will need to overcome them. The fact that there are other people should give you new SOLUTIONS to any problems you have. But I will NOT be giving you special 'tools' to make your life easier. We MAY implement some kind of HUB transit system for super large distant travel. And hopef

  14. Recruit to make sure we have everything in order before you begin your training, I would like to ask you to fill out this form. Twitch URL: (Just provide a link to your Twitch profile) Are you subscribed to Gopher on Twitch, or a Patron? (If "yes", please provide proof. A screenshot will do, just try to get your Twitch username/Patron username in the screenshot.) Do you have any other important details? (If so let us know.) Note: If you own XCOM 2 you can export a bin file in-game for Gopher's convenience. If you do not own XCOM 2, please provide a description of your recruit. A sec

  15. Good evening, My name is Steel Gear and I've been working on a project for quite some time now. It is never easy for me to present stuff I made to people like this, but after having put so much work into it, i felt like all the work would be for nothing if i didn't. So since I feel like it's in a somewhat presentable state now I would like to share it with you anyway. Its quite a distance away from spawn, thats why ist not very easy to find. A friend of mine (namely SpooksGhostly), calls it the Tower of Steel. I still havent decided what i should call it in the end, so I'm

    Stiv Bobblehead

    Yes that's right - I plan to begin a Stiv bobble-head over the next week! If anyone could send me a quality jpg of Stiv's shoulder-less ebony armour I would greatly appreciate it. Update (dec 27): It begins!

  17. I have been struggeling to post this, but i stand behind this and i think that we should not underestimate the impact this behavior on the server has had and still has. Senpai notice me: -when the first Server streams started we had this kind of behavior for the "first" time. People spamming gopher in game and twitch to tell them how great they are, how he needs to visit them, that they just want to help (while crowding him, hashing for compliments of their skins, gear and/or gifts). - people struggeling against each other for the closest possible claim to gopher, so he can see

  18. A lot has gone on this week so I'm going to do my best to sum things up as effectively as I can. Keep in mind, though, that a lot of things are still in flux. And I'll be keeping this post short as well because even what I do know "for sure" may change shortly. It's that kind of week. Whenever there are changes in a group, when some leave or others join for whatever reason, there is always some chaos. The issue this week is that we had multiple changes pile up rapidly. We've had a lot of new members due to the new Minecraft server, most of @Gopher's admins retired within a short space of

    Stiv Bobblehead

    OK, I should probably do a bit of a Q&A on this issue I guess. As I mentioned to Pcat, I am still a little out of my comfort zone. I have barely gotten used to people wanting to watch me fail at games on a stream, let alone people buy stuff that reminds them of me or characters I have created. But having seen this bobblehead I realise this is pretty much going to happen with or without me anyway. What Beaver made is too good to ignore

    Please unban me

    "I'm cheating, I'm not ashamed and if you have problem with that you can go fuck yourself" That's what you said on your video. Now you're saying I'm disrespectful and you didn't even know it's not allowed. What you're saying is contradicting itself. So far all you're doing is trying to make me feel bad and telling how important you are. I might need to chill out, but you have to get off your high horse.

  23. Hello fellow Minions! I meant to write this post since I got appointed Sysadmin on the server but couldn't really find time for it. Many of you probably know me already, seen me showing up here and there in community. For those of you who haven't heard of me before here's short introduction. I've been part of Gopher's Minions community since early 2014, I've attended almost all early streams although it took me a while until I actively started talking on the chat. During the early days, back when this site and forum didn't exist yet and we've been using Philosophercat's fan forum

    Here's where I'm at with Stiv so far. The details are slowly coming along. Also: his head seems to be balanced nicely and does in fact bobble!

  25. During the "Pre-release Stream," Gopher mentioned how he'd like someone to have Stiv as the Mysterious Benefactor. This is the cleaned up, hi-resolution version from the rush job that I did during the stream (though technically, the stream is still going on at the moment). ~ Keeper

  26. This is a retirement card of sorts for Xelphos, retired admin of many hats. I've already said much to the man myself, but it is fitting to say that he has always been enthusiastic and creative in all that he has done behind the scenes and put his whole heart into everything he did. Xelphos, I wish you a relaxing retirement. Take care of yourself, as always. o7 Now it is your turn to add to the celebration of all that he has done for the community over the years. But, first, well wishes from his colleagues and the Dark Lord himself: Gopher: Thanks for all your

  28. You are wrong about me losing sleep over the server. Not only have I lost a few nights sleep, I have lost a few days of work over the last week or so due to a number of issues. As for me being wrong. Wrong about what? The rules? Different servers have different rules to meet different visions of what is fun and what is not fun. How can someone be wrong about what is fun for them? In the previous thread you called me childish and pretty much painted a picture of me as an arrogant tyrant forcing you all to play the game my way. But the opposite is true. I don't force anybody to play the way

  30. I would like to observe that, unless there is still some actual mis-transmission of information, this thread is in danger of becoming grossly unproductive. I would like to bring a motion that we close this thread, and if further discussion between the primary parties in this: those being one @Gopher, Dark Lord, Grand High Troll, Builder of Lava Towers, Teacher of Mods and Maths and Code; and one @Jognt of the Forums and XCOM Squad; that they be moderated in a sidebar discussion with a mediator. Reasoning: the thread has gone from a discourse on perception of slight to a bit of a harangue. G

  32. This community is pretty much driven and kept alive by the admins and moderators we have. Not only do they do a great job of keeping me in the loop, they spend an incredible amount of their own free time keeping things running smoothly and (and this is important) in a friendly relaxed manner. The technology the forums use, the themes and gadgets, all mean nothing compared to the community that uses it. I am grateful to everyone here for their input, but honestly I have no worries about the current state of these forums. In fact I am very pleased with how well they have worked out. A b

    A Forum Thank You.

    I have looked around and did not see a thank you post for Gopher and the Mods and web site folks that have worked so hard to put this web site together. So if this has been posted before then i ask you to be gentle. I would like to thank Gopher and the people who have given their time and effort to make this site a place for us Minions to see and sort through Gophers content. Also to connect on common interest and topics that a lot of us like. So please leave a thank you if you agree. See you on the forums or chat or steam,you get the idea.

  37. That is absolutely the way to go. It's harder than it sounds, but it really is the only way to stay sane I think. It should be easy because the comments are overwhelmingly positive, but for some reason, the negative ones have more of an effect. It's actually a valuable lesson for life in general. Focus on the good. Easy to say, difficult to do, but then you know my attitude towards a difficult fight that keeps beating me down

  38. So, I've been working in the IT sector for a few years now, despite being a physicist (don't ask...), mostly on Linux machines. As of now I'm a sys admin in a small, low tech, old fashioned company (i.e. i'm "the computer guy") which is fine... sort of. This morning I arrived at work, only to turn on my pc and be greeted by an email by another employee asking me why the system was refusing to change his password to be exactly like his username.... 2 hours later, he's still not convinced that having identical UID and PSW is a massive security issue: "that's what I have on my home pc!"

    Minionland Road Project

    This post contains information about the ongoing 'road network' project in Minionland. As one of the chief instigators and 'guy who maps the thing', I wanted to provide some intel on what's going on, for all interested parties. Goal The road network aims to create an easy to travel system of roads between major builds in the overworld, to help minions travel and find their way. History The road project started with the ever industrious Z_Blackblue, as he desired to create a road between his rather remote home at FiveTowers and Spawn (roughly 8,000 blocks away).
