    Staff News
    @ThePointForward and @andyt90 have been promoted to Community Managers! These gentlemen have shown their loyalty and commitment to making FK the best gaming community it can be and we wish them all the best in their new roles! Congratulations, and good luck!
    Public Relations News Room
    The Public Relations Team has been working tirelessly on a major upcoming event. More information will be announced on the 1st of November! Keep an eye on the Twitter and the Front Page! 
    INTREP MEGA THREAD - After discussing different ways on getting feedback from the community we've decided to open a mega thread specifically for the INTREPs please check it out and leave any comments, suggestions, or reactions! The INTREPs are one of the few things the PR team does specifically for the community and without your feedback we can not improve them! 
    In Case You Missed It
    Mental Health Awareness - Mental Health is a growing conversation. No longer is it seen as taboo to open up to your friends and discuss your struggles. We all deal with our own demons and especially around this time of year with the changing of the seasons, the upcoming holidays, and financial pressures that come along with that. We're all human and therefore subject to life's ups and downs. FK is not known for being a place to air your emotions and hug it out via the internet... but we are a community of friends who all have our own personal struggles. It's hard sometimes to know what to do or what to say when a friend comes to you with something as serious as suicidal thoughts, or plans. Our Community Member @Ripley has brought to our attention a free online course that will walk you through how to respond to situations such as from multiple perspectives. Please take a moment of your time to check it out. 
    Destiny 2 Clan - Legendo has obtained permission from the CM team to make an Official FK Clan on Destiny 2. As the game grows more popular within our community we'd love to see more people representing FK in Destiny 2! Also, keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming Raids!
    Escape from Tarkov patch - Escape from Tarkov Beta - 0.12 Patch has been released! Check out the new epic trailer!
    Community Spotlight
    Tobe's Charity - "Myself and my American Football team will be partaking in Movember, a charity event where you grow a mustache in aid of helping to provide awareness and help for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health issues for men." Please visit @Tobe's charity, share it on facebook, twitter and donate if you can! 
    Secret Santa - It's that time again! Make sure to sign up for the Secret Santa! Things are going to be slightly different this year, as we'll be matching those who live in North America with others who also live in North America. Same goes for those living in Europe. The last day for sign up is November 15th!
    Sorry about the shorter INTREP this week guys. Been putting most of my time and energy into our upcoming event. I can't wait to share it all with you! - R

    FK Secret Santa: 3rd edition

    By Chuck Yeager, in Community News, , 1 comment, 1,520 views
    Back in 2017, community members got together to host their own Secret Santa. Secret Santa is a gift system where members are randomly assigned a person to whom they give a gift. The identity of the gift giver is to remain a secret, adding a lot of surprise to the present itself. Members can describe their interests and hobbies in the sign up form, but it's up to the Secret Santa to come up with an original gift. In 2019, the third edition will allow you to send physical gifts to fellow FK members, both European or US based. Read on to discover some of the best presents of last year.
    The first edition was limited to digital gifts only, such as Steam games. Continuing on the trust built during that first attempt, the second Secret Santa in 2018 introduced the possibility to send physical gifts. 

    What happened in 2018? To start off, @Gditz received an FK themed parcel, and the gift itself was even more smashing.

    @Mingy received this Destiny collectible from @Zeusz77 with a touching love letter attached.

    @TheMinion got... well... This.

    And TheMinion continued the Secret Santa with gifting this to @EHOPPPS

    @Frankasaurus Rex even made an unboxing video to show off his gifts:
    Apparently @SilentGunner13 would marry anyone who sent him anything Tomcat related. we're still waiting for that wedding, @Guest.

    Ready to put on your white beard, have small children sit on your lap and make another FK member happy during Christmas? Sign up below.

    Two new Community Managers join the team

    By Chuck Yeager, in Community News, , 4 comments, 2,183 views
    Please welcome @andyt90and @ThePointForwardas our new Community Managers. To introduce them to you guys, we have prepared a small interview with them, which you can read in this article. Don't forget to congratulate them on their new position, in the comments below. 
    Andyt90 has been one of the longest serving moderators and was one of the first members to be appointed in this role, back in 2017. He is one of our active community streamers and is known for his effective slotting procedures during main missions. His honest opinion will surely resonate well inside the secret CM chambers.
    Hi @andyt90, can you give a brief introduction of yourself?
    "So I got into FK about 2 years ago now through watching Katla's stream jumped into a mission and to be honest the rest is history. Spent a good portion of that time as a mod so have seen the inner workings of staff to a degree which will help me in the long run hopefully."
    What can you bring to the table as a new Community Manager?
    "I can bring the experience of being in this place for such a long time and see how it has changed over the years and hopefully bring a new line of thought into what needs changing and push those changes along with the rest of the team in a timely manner. My vision of the community would be somewhere someone can come relax enjoy themselves not just when it comes to our arma missions but as a whole. I have seen more and more people just getting on the ts to play so many other games with friends they made through arma which I thought would be somewhat of a natural progression as people got tired/burnt out of arma."
    What do you look forward to the most in your new role?
    "I look forward to mostly being able to help move the community forward and stop it stagnating or becoming dull to be here. Hopefully I can try to do more for the community as I have always been someone that has been open to opinions (even if some people may disagree with that ). I am still going to be the same person as I was before some will be happy with that others will now cower in fear I am sure XD"
    If you would be the glorious ruler of FK for one day, the sole CM in charge of any decision, what new feature would you implement?
    "If I had full control over the community for a day I would definitely have to look into making an FK patreon for all the lewds and anime waifus we all know we truly want!"
    ThePointForward is that guy from all the basic training sessions. A respected veteran of the community, he has shown his dedication to FKGaming plenty of times. No longer only a trainer, he will now help carve out the future for this ever growing community.
    Same questions for you, @ThePointForward, who are you, and what made you join this community?
    "Well, as some of you may know, I am your friendly big fella from Czech Republic. But to expand on that: I'm 26 and working a full-time job as a software developer. As you might suspect, I enjoy the game of basketball and I also play airsoft and various board games outside of FK.
    How did I find FK... Well, through the old stream personalities, no point in denying that. Saw how missions went down and I was looking for some milsim-ish action, so I hopped on and stayed.

    I joined in May 2017, but barely got a basic training from Slouchy plus a few missions and then real life came knocking with me having to move and change job in very short succession, so I have reappeared sometime in autumn of 2017 and pretty much stayed ever since.
    Sometime in 2018 I started helping out with basic trainings myself since I've had time for it and eventually became primary on it. Recently I've also became a Prophet trainer and now applied and became a CM. The rest is in the stars now..."
    What can you bring to the table as new Community Manager?
    "I'll mostly paraphrase my application here. I hope to bring another opinion to the table while falling in with the current team well enough as I've always tried to keep my relations with others friendly or at least cordial. I also want to keep the community healthy - both by trying to lead by example and making sure rules are being enforced when necessary (and let's hope there will be minimum of the latter).
    And finally I want to be approachable, which is something I do have reputation for - therefore as a small PSA I'd like to say that my virtual doors are open if someone has concerns or issues.

    Of course at the same time as a small reminder you can always use various suggestion sections on the forums - from Anonymous Feedback to Community Suggestions to Think Tank Suggestions and other specific places. Be bold!"
    What do you look forward to the most in your new role?
    "Watching this community celebrating release of Arma 4 with full server pushing it to it's limits. And by that I mean that I hope to see us staying strong for years to come."
    If you would be the glorious ruler of FK for one day, the sole CM in charge of any decision, what new feature would you implement?
    "Slotting Tags - you have to pull the entire server into the AFK room at least once to get them!"
    Do you think these guys will make a great addition to the CM team? Already have a suggestion for them? Drop it in the comments below!

    Community Bulletin
        Benji's GoFundMe
            @Winters (Benji) has made a go fund me to raise funds to help him with his cat Ali's vet bills. Benji wrote "We can only guess that my cat Ali, 18 months old, was hit by a car on Friday 20th September. He suffered a dislocated tail, quite high up to quote the vet, which resulted in him spending 1 day shy of 2 weeks in the vets. Until the day before he came home I was pretty much expecting to have to have him put down, but over night he started to show signs of recovering. He's been back home since October 5th and seems comfortable and happy, playing with his brother Lemmy again, so his recovery is going well. However, with the length of time he spent at the vets the bills grew and though I have never used gofundme I guess I'm hoping there might be some kind individuals out there that would be willing to help cover the costs of this only." Please visit the GOFUNDME page and donate if you can.

    First ModCast Recording
    Once upon a time there was a meme, a meme born from our very own @Winters. A meme in which every non Moderator member would be muted and only the Moderators could speak. This meme has now become and official means of discussing information with our community- The ModCast. Last friday, @andyt90 @Legendo and @Garfield hosted the very first ModCast Recording with great success. We expect it's release in the next INTREP issue so keep an eye out for that! If you'd like to participate in the next ModCast please watch the Calendar as upcoming recording dates will be posted there!

    Twitch Streamer Spotlight
    FK Name - Rabit Salvokelk
    Twitch Handle - rabitsalvokelk
    URL - https://www.twitch.tv/rabitsalvokelk
    How long have you been streaming? - About a year or so
    What games do you primarily stream? - Used to be anything and everything. Nowadays however it seems to be only Arma 
    When you do normally stream? - Also used to be whenever but now it's mostly just weekends
    Whats the goal for your channel? - There isn't really a point or a goal to it. I mean obviously it would be exceptional to make a living playing games and having fun with the audience but maybe in the distant future. Right now its "just something that I do from time to time"
    Any clips you'd like to share? - Orbital tank
    INTREP Schedule 
    As some of you may have noticed, the INTREP has not been released in approximately 3 weeks. While originally the PR team in tandem with the CM team wished for the INTREPs to be a weekly endeavor it's quite obvious now that a weekly release was just not working out. INTREPs will now be scheduled bi-weekly. This is for multiple reasons- Firstly being that with bi-weekly releases there is more to cover and therefore more content. Secondly as I (Rhea) work every other weekend IRL this allows for me to construct and finalize INTREPs on my time off without loosing sleep. Thirdly bi-weekly releases allow for larger topics to be featured on the front page for longer. I hope you all enjoy the larger INTREPs and don't mind the longer schedule. As always if you have any questions, comments, or ideas feel free to add them in the comments of this article or PM me directly!
