Server Down-Time

Posted on February 18, 2017 by NeonHeights

Hey guys, the servers may go down and come back up on and off in the next hour or two due to some scheduled maintenance by our server provider. We should be back to normal operation in two hours tops. Thanks for your understanding!

Edit: may be more than 2 hours

Staff Promotions! The Hype Is Real!!

Posted on February 7, 2017 by Roudydogg1๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Good day everyone! I would like to take this oppurtunity to welcome the new moderators to our team.
Over the last year or so we've had many moderators and admins come and go, and today (and over the course of the next few months) we'll be bringing in a new group of moderators as well as letting some of our old, inactive staff go.

As always we continue to grow and do great things within the TF2 community. We've kept these servers going for over 6 years now, and we're glad to now welcome the following players to our staff team with the hope that they will help make our servers, and the community, an even better place.

Swoosh - http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198073037982/

Phoenix - http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198080348844


We will also be saying goodbye to some of our old staff who no longer come on the servers/who have chosen to resign.

Be sure to congratulate our new staff if you see them on the servers! If youre having any troubles, im sure one of them would be happy to help.

Don't be upset if you weren't picked this time around, this is also a call for YOU to create a moderator application.
If you don't have one, make one, and
if you have one, check if there's anything you need to update on it! We are always looking for new innovative staff and this is a perfect oppurtunity to get started.

{ISSUE FIXED} Regarding a steam profile related exploit

Posted on February 7, 2017 by Roudydogg1๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Edit: issue was fixed early this morning


Here's a follow up to this warning. Steam Profiles & Activity Feed are safe to visit now.

Method of the Exploit:

The "My Guides showcase" (multi-guide showcase) parsed scripts placed in guides' Title section. You could inject code via putting such guides up on your showcase. Favorite Guide was NOT vulnerable, only multi-guide showcase was. Repro steps:

1) Your profile must be at least Level 10 (to access My Guide Showcase)
2) Create a Guide and put your script/payload in Title (-> Enter the title for your guide)
3) Publish the Guide & Feature it on your profile Guide Showcase






Good evenin' everyone.

A Steam exploit is actively being abused rite now and there's a risk (phishing, malicious script execution, etc.) involved when viewing or simply opening PROFILE pages of other steam users (both desktop and mobile versions on all browsers). It is in your best interests to avoid viewing other ppls profiles until the nice kind folk at Valve () fix the issue and release a statement giving the A-OK.

It doesn't matter whether you do this within Steam itself, the in-game overlay, or any web browser such as Edge/Firefox/Chrome. If affected, you won't see any of this happening until it's too late.

Keep an eye on your market/store transaction history and gift history for unrecognized purchases, and do not approve any unrecognized or suspicious trades or market listings from the Steam mobile authenticator.

If you think your acct has been compromised, change your Steam Account password, enable Mobile Authenticator if it's not on already (otherwise deauthorize Steam Guard on all systems from settings) then restart your router/change IP. Also, scan your system with a malware scanner/anti-virus.

GL and have a good night

New Map Update! (Idle server)

Posted on October 30, 2016 by NeonHeights

Hey guys, im back from the grave (Not really though cause i didnt have any part of this map update )

Our beloved staff Bio Benny and Unnamed have come together to create a brand new update of our idle map. Its a halloween themed update with plenty of new easter eggs and cool additions to it. I uploaded the new map to both idle servers and it should be going live right now! Go hop on either one of them and let us know what you think of the new map update! The server IPs are listed below

Idle #1: 74.91.116.4:27015
Idle #2: 162.248.95.35:27015

Naughty Players (New Engie Glitch)

Posted on August 29, 2016 by Roudydogg1๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Update: issue was "fixed" like 5 minutes after this announcement. Do you think Valve's ears are burning?

Well, word has gotten out pretty quickly about an engineer glitch in which if you use the Short Circut's alt fire on someone on the opposite team, it will lag them, and the server...Not surprisingly, players jumped on the bandwagon immedietly and started abusing this glitch.

I'd like to take the time now to please ask everyone to not use the alt fire on the short circut (or even forgo using the short circuit entirely) until such time that this issue is fixed. Up to tf2 devs at this point.

If you see people doin' it too, take a screenshot and report it to us so we can look into it. Thanks for reading this PSA from your favorite tf2 community :^)

Staff Promotion - Congratulations!

Posted on August 1, 2016 by Roudydogg1๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Over the last little while, these individuals have shown major interest in our servers. Today, I have the pleasure of officially announcing our new additions to our staff team. We will also be promoting a superb moderator to admin!

These players have done stuff like being a great part of our community, helping other players with problems and reporting things or just generally showing initiative. These players have done a great job at making the NHS community a better place, and as a result, we have promoted the below players to moderator in hopes that they will continue to make the servers a better and more fun place for everyone!

Hacker Jeff - www.steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198081061317
Writer of Requiems www.steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198159262475
Kwas - http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198138014202
Erm2000 - http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198049086473

Give our new staff a high-five next time you see them in game, or if you dont have the high five taunt you can just paste a lenny in chat for them. I might have one around here somewhere.... oh, HERE it is: ( อกยฐ อœส– อกยฐ)

We have also promoted one of our moderators to admin. This mod has shown his committment to NHS and has invested countless hours into the servers and also worth mentioning the time spent working on our reports/bans discussions here. He is kind, respectful, and most of all he knows his stuff.
If you see him in game, throw him a lenny. Dont bother with high-fives, he doesn't like that stuff. Once you spend enough time on NHS as the admins have, you LITERALLY become a lenny.

We also say goodbye to a few of our old moderators and admins, who over the past few months have chosen to part ways with our staff team for one reason or another.

Sky Cake
Bob
Emily
ShadowKnight
Pride
Epik
Smoogz

As always, we wish them all the best in wherever their lives may take them and we hope to see them around on the servers anyway!

To all you regulars: you guys are awesome! It is because of you guys that we are the community we have grown to be! And hey, you never know, you may one day have an anouncement about you being promoted as well!

O, and stay frosty.

NeonHeight's Community is Now on GTA V

Posted on July 20, 2016 by Roudydogg1๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

'Evening everybody.

A few weeks back while I was playing GTA V, I went ahead and made some plans to create a NeonHeight's GTA Crew that I had wanted to have open to everyone from NHS who play the game. I forgot that I had it all out, until now...

So feel free to come join us in the brand new GTA V crew for some fun! It's open to everyone and it's nothing serious of a crew, just something I put together in a minute, so we could chill as a community in GTA V.

The crew link can be found here: https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/nhs_incorporated


And let me know what kind of events you'd like to do as a crew as well, I feel like this is something we could get into (or not...we shall see!)

See you on the crew side!

Minor Staff Promotion

Posted on March 25, 2016 by Roudydogg1๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

Hey guys, Roudy here. Time for another minor staff update. These 3 individuals used to be moderators on our servers and had to step down for their own reasons, and they have been showing a serious interest in joining our team again, and have done MUCH more than their share to manage these servers, and it's time they got another chance at recognition.

We will only be re-promoting these people and will not be adding in any new staff.

Say hello to our moderators who have joined us once again,

Epik
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198083781290/

Emily
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198161234697/

Holby
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198043337323/

These 3 are doing more than their fair share, and i'm proud to promote them once again.
Please, if you ever see these three on the servers, thank them for their constant help and vigilance on the servers!


We also say goodbye today to a few of our inactive staff members,

LostAlot and Festive Tits of Kiev.
