Some of you may have noticed we don't have a downloads database...
or a high number of release topics. We do, however, have hidden subforums for private mods releases.
Right now they are only accessible for the following member groups:

Colonials
Veterans
Purple Hearts
Sentinels
Paladin
Overseer


For more information on each, read this topic:
http://www.gunetwork.org/t6-member-groups


Why don't we allow access to Established, Survivors or Initiates?
Or to Members with 0 posts or to Guests? WHYYY!?!?
I'll let
dragbody explain it for me:
@dragbody wrote:
There are a few reasons. Let me explain...

1. We want to protect the mod authors from dishonest users. Bandwidth leeching is not an issue anymore; however, mod leaking is.

2.  The VGU has always been about the community and friendship. Anonymous users soaking up our mods and never saying thanks or sharing a screenshot of the mods in action aren't who we want to be part of a community with.

3. We also need to protect the CONTENT of the mods. It's no secret that our mods frequently use ported content. As a result, there is a need to ensure our members are responsible people who will respect the fact that even the modders don't really "own" the mods. Thus the approval process is our way of screening users to help us share the mods in a controlled manner.

I think this pretty well sums it up. We want everyone to get approval so we can all maximize our Fallout/Elder Scrolls fun! But it's up to the individual users to determine if that happens.

Now, to gain access to mods our talented modders release
you'll have to be admitted to one of the groups I've mentioned before.

Your best and safest bet is to go for
Colonials
To become a Colonial, you'll have to earn our TRUST and RESPECT
Convince us you're a decent community member. Socialize with the modders whose mods you want.
To start off, you may attempt to:

1. Make a consistent amount of non-spam posts:
- a consistent introduction could make up for 5 posts
(allowing people to get to know and understand you)
- posting 5 screenshots of your own of various settings
(not 5 screens of the same thing from different angles)
in one post may count for another 5 posts
2. Be a decent human being, without a history of leaking other ppl's mods without permission and without acting like a prick
3. Be mindful of the Rules & Guidelines about how this forum functions.


Some of you are already Veterans and know very well what that means. For those of you who just registered, Veterans are members of the Old VGUnetwork who have been very active and valuable there, who we remember very well and who have stuck with us through thick and thin. They're literally Veterans, we have a long history together and they should be regarded as OG Smile
If you believe you deserve the rank of Veteran, apply to the group and we'll take it in consideration.
Possible outcomes to that:

1. most of us are gonna say "Oh right! I know him/her! He/she used to post a lot and was a nice guy/gal!"
in which case you're set and promoted. This is the case with most current Veterans.

2. some of us say
"Sounds familiar! I think she/he was around!
Not sure how active, though, it's very vague.
We should wait for him/her to post some more"

OR
one of us could say "oh I remember him/her well!"
while others would say "no, I don't recall seeing them"
which is the case for most people who already applied but weren't promoted yet
(spoknot99, altoangelo, Nemesis, Ghost_1021, Major_Tumanov)

3. most of us would say "I don't really remember him/her. maybe they should go for Colonial instead" which is the situation for... well... not sure. but could be.

Ergo, it's a weird complicated system closed eyes smile
Now I must beg of you: DO NOT be kiss-asses!
Don't try to suck up past your promotion.
But don't be a prick, be open and interactive.
Be honest, decent and post lots of pictures  tongue 

Don't aim for
Paladin. Only very few remarkable modders and old VGU members have earned that status. If you're registered to the site, we probably already know and have promoted you on the spot. If you went under our radar, feel free to message me, asking about it, but it'll save us both an awkward conversation if you just post on the forums and allow us to pick up on your presence first. Paladins are dragbody, xxShepardxx, Cpt.Rex, Corehound, dazzerfong, Toxa01, the Sempai family and a few other renown members who have been great friends of the site or, most importantly, valuable family members to the VGU kin.
However, if your current and future activity, as well as fantastic mod releases, stand out among the rest like a blinding beacon of light, we will nominate you to this member group.

For
Overseer you have to have forum managing experience or honest willingness, free time and a good reputation. There's a greater chance you become Colonial or Sentinel before Overseer, but just so it's clear, anybody can strive to become Overseer. It's a staff position, comes with a lot of responsibility but with a few perks too. So applications will be considered.

For
Sentinel you have to be regarded as a very active and helpful member who is willing to take on some staff duties, with reduced responsibilities. Think of it like Sentinels are the Archer troops on the proverbial battlefield, providing back-up and cover for the Overseers, sometimes hitting a problem before Overseers get to them. You don't have to apply for this, you'll be nominated when you've fulfilled the requirements well enough and if we need to bulk up the ranks.

I hope this is sufficiently explained, as a preliminary breakdown.
Other additions or changes will be posted and updated here.

Best regards,

DVAted

To all our wonderful colleagues, friends and fellow GUNNERS,

As our Gaming Underground Network grows, we've started having more and more active members to pass 100 posts before we even got a chance to review them. For this reason, and as a result of the past Staff Meeting, we've decided together to include Sentinels on the promotion votes. This prompted a few other changes as well.
I present to you the new Colonization System as it's started on October 1st:

You don't really get to apply for promotion, you'll be nominated.
You may ask Staff if you've been nominated, and how the votes are going, but there's no application necessary on your part, other than being active on the forums.

Only Overseers and Paladins nominate members for Promotion.
DO NOT bother Paladins to nominate you, you may be banned.
You may, however, ask an Overseer or Sentinel about your status,
but don't be annoying and don't be an ass kisser.

Only Overseers, Sentinels and Paladins vote for or against members nominated for Promotion. Each vote has the same value.

Do not beg for their favor, do not be needy and exasperating.
Earn your status like an intelligent adult, not like a leech.
A proper activity and patience will always be rewarded.
Show trust and respect and we'll reciprocate Thumbs Up


Types of Votes
NO when the member hasn't earned promotion.
YES when the member has earned promotion.
WAIT when the member has potential, but hasn't quite earned it yet


Nominations may be for:
Colonial, Veteran, Gfx Specialist, Purple Hearts, Chatbox Moderator, Sentinel, Overseer, Paladin or Demotion

I've included all the current Member Groups here for quick reference:
 

Every nomination has to be motivated.
Every time we nominate somebody we note our impressions and a direct link to their posts. So a nomination would look like this:

<UserExample> http://www.gunetwork.org/spa/UserExample
Colonial. Mostly decent activity. Had some short posts in the beginning but he improved content after a while. Has been friendly, helpful and mindful of the rules.


Demotion and Overseer Nominations have to reach 5 votes of the same kind to finalize.
All other Nominations only need 3 votes of the same kind to pass through.
Once at least 3 (or 5) votes are met in the member's favor, there will be a 48 hour Pending Period in which anyone who hasn't voted can formulate objections, and those who've voted can change their vote based on proper justification. If no objections arise within the given time, the Nomination will be executed and announced here.

I trust this is pretty straight-forward. If you've wondered how things work, this is it. For any other questions, address them here. Any topics created about this in the future will be redirected here and locked.

Thank you for being part of the Gaming Underground Network!

well, not all of them were deemed that way. just your first few dozen, or so.
you've improved a lot over time, so you deserved the 3 YES votes Smile
the 2 wait votes and the parenthesis shows why it took longer than it should have, that's all Wink
see you all around some more   Party Car
your activity should include more feedback and screenshots and such TongueTril

Yet another congrats to the two promoted! Very Happy I understand that they had problems that prolonged their promotion but they redeemed themselves and they've truly earned it. Enjoy and cheers. Smile

Today's promotion, with 4 YES votes is moddyboy
Be respectful and you'll be respected

a premiere here on VGU
adarkfable45 has been banned with 6 votes for being hostile, snide and disrespectful
he's shared our exclusive mods publicly and promises to do so in the future as well
he's also created a second account Spougeysquirl which has also been banned (considering deleting it)

it's a sad day for our modders here
that kind of behavior makes modders not share their mods anymore
shame on adarkfable, and shame on his upbringing.
