    Hey everyone,

    As you can tell from the title, DanZay has become the newest member of the development team for KZTimer. He’s made videos, streamed gameplay, tested maps, made maps, and is now becoming part of the development process. His most notable work is his separate KZ plugin called SimpleKZ.

    With the addition of DanZay to the global team, we are looking towards future improvement in KZ and it's coming features and updates.

    DanZay’s programming talents and KZ knowledge will be pivotal on a number of exciting upcoming projects that we have planned. Stay tuned for more details soon!


    The Global Team now consists of the following members:

    Sikari:
    • Developer
    Chuckles:
    • Developer
    DanZay:
    • Developer
    Zach:
    • Tournament Planning & Scheduling

    • Leading the Map Testing Team
    Zpamm:
    • Ban Management
    The following people are supporting in supporting roles:
    • Funk
    • Klyve
    • So0le
    • Sachburger



    Thank you,
    Sikari and the Global Team

    Yes))))))))

    Also consider the fact that I was the only "global admin" for quite a while before klyve took over and some other shit i.e. I did all the global banning/map approving/forum modding/"community relations" myself.

    can i join the team? i have some ideas

    1) we should start with incredibly high map standards + discourage good and active mappers like orbit. rather than getting in fresh, diverse and more maps (and consequently removing old shitty maps if the pool is too big), lets KEEP the shittie maps and cut down on accepting new maps.

    2) we should unban everyone we have banned for cheating in the past 3 years, on the premiss that some of them cheated unknowingly. i mean, let's be fair to the guys who had the wrong program on at the wrong time (translation: we need a bigger playerbase but i don't know how to improve the actual game). P.S. remember to not give Wejn a second chance. P.S.2 i think this is where i give a shoutout to ruben.

    3) we should delete old eightbo global records that were done legally. remember to only delete eightbo times, let's not focus on other potential times where similar technique was used, because who cares about non-global scrubs and consistency/equality. but let's NOT delete old cjbind times however when we remove that. it might affect some of of our friends high on the kz totem pole. they can keep their cjbind times.

    4) let's do some poorly justified removal and re-adding of old maps, wiping all prior times. important to remove shortcuts we dont like anymore, after people have spent countless hours grinding the map.

    5) let's remove maps (some of which were great; timescape) due to obscured softcore drawings. lets be realistic here guys, we don't want kzers from singapore to get in any legal trouble (legal consequenses like this has never happened in gaming history but there's a first for everything!).

    6) make a map approval team, majority of which are friends who are heavily influenced by ruben (and few other top players). this is certainly not a recipe for bias and "corruption" of some sort, where few peoples preferences can outweight and negate map quality easily. this is where kz_giantsach gets a shoutout, who described a good kz map primarily as something you "ascend, like a mountain or a beanstalk", essentially arguing that without an upwards climb, the map isn't really "kz". someone else argued that bhop blocks, ladders, surfs and perfs don't belong in kz. smart idea to put people who hold ideas like this very strongly in charge of approving/dismissing maps.


    we'll start of with these ideas and move onto my next 6 shortly (in roughly 2.8 years). shoutout to the previous kz-time dev.
