Default Admin Messages, Center Screen

The white text that appears in the center of the screen that either displays stats or "Crit Gods to the Rescue." Can we do away with these?

Why?

Even stripping out the entire UI for these films doesn't remove them. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice.

Thanks,

Misanthrope

Those text have been there since I've been around in LKM. I honestly don't think we would change the server's display text just for one person that is recording video.

I genuinely don't expect a change, but thought I'd ask. "We've always done it this way" isn't actually a reason though. The messages serves no purpose other than clutter. Videos aside, it's just spam I wouldn't need if all I cared about was the gaming.

But again, it's your server...

the BBQ one actually really helps spread the word because people read that and start asking regulars about it.

the crit gods and john galt ones are inside jokes that most of us get

the tracking one is pretty interesting.

it's a pub server, it's not meant to be a very serious game

He's not talking about the MOTD messages that appear in the chat box; it's the big white messages that appear in mid-screen along with some of the MOTD's that he's referring to, I believe.

Honestly, they're nowhere as bad or as frequent as some other servers with their constant barrage of "x took a knife up the ass from y" and "x is on a rampage" messages popping up on the screen. But yeah, from an aesthetic standpoint I can understand why some folks would rather not see any of these messages.

I'm all for reminding people that they need to kneel before General Mori Zod, however. On that note:

I kinda debated it.
Oddly in the vid I noticed teh HLStatsX msg, but not the crit gods one.
I wish I could remove the HLStats one.

But if you can get enough people to not want it, I will consider it.

The messages never really bothered me that much when they first started to appear center screen. In fact, I think there needs to be more messages filled with either funnier things or more pointless information. At least, thats how I felt when I was playing TF2 on the regular.

LKM has always been about having fun, not being serious, need more messages to get that point out there and as well as being a good reminder.

Oh, and someone who is obviously new to the server, let alone the forum, really doesn't deserve the right to even make such a request. Maybe become more involved with the community instead of only caring about your petty self needs and wants. Jerk.

The crit gods one doesn't appear, but the HLStats one does. I mentioned it because these are the only two that appear center screen. I don't care about the BBQ messages in the upper left because they're not intrusive. The John Galt ones seem to go away when I strip the UI, so no worries there either.

And none of this is a very big deal*, I just though I'd point it out. Yes, these are my videos, but they feature all of you and your server too.

* - And not at all "serious". I'm not sure why gamers feel the need to reach for this false dichotomy with knee-jerk like regularity. They're videos about a game. Of course they're not serious. I'd just like them to look as nice as possible, but I'm not all that fussed about it.

P.S. - Sorry for putting this post in the wrong forum and then duplicating it. Feel free to delete the other post. I'd have done it myself if I could have.

Totally seconding this, especially if we can somehow rig it so it picks random lines from Bash.org

Leave it, adds character.

Plus, several drunkard regulars tell me it helps them make sure they connected to the correct server.
