Hey guys just writing this up dirty real quick. The Surf Server has been seeing some major lag and packet loss today, Our host has been experience an attack at our Chicago locaton affectiing our servers.
Thank you for being patient with me as this is completely out of my control and I am at the mercy of my host fixing these issues. I will post an update ASAP.

I have decided to completely restructure the staff roster.
Community Manager: Froz3nFlake (Promoted from Head-Admin).
All Server Mods have been promoted to Admins. All admins have the ability to Server Mute, Server Gag, Kick and Ban.
Server Mod role has been eliminated.
We will now require all new admins start as a trial admin. This is a new decision that will improve the quality of our admins and prevent future terminations in the future, All trial admins have the same access as normal admins except for the "ban" permision.
I need to some suggestions for names guys! What do you as a community think we should be called? I am partial to Fractured Servers. Server names can be "Fractured Easy Surf". Fractured Arena". Fractured Bhop" etc etc.
Change the logo to a server icon with a crack going through it. Change my name back to Fracture (One of my Aliases)
