Feel free to affiliate with us if you're Valve or Steam related.

As you all know, this group has been dead for some time. Well, some what dead. Aside from Dr Paine, who has voted on stuff from time to time, I've been the only contributor when it comes to the submission process. That makes it hard for me to accept or decline submissions when I'm not available.

"So why the sudden journal after nearly two years of inactivity?"
Well, I requested ownership a few weeks ago during my visit home (part of the reason why I was unable to make this journal, among other things). I hope to bring the group back to life with whatever is left of the community. Having people continue to create journals about recent Valve activity, increasing the amount of artwork that gets submitted here, and hopefully re-upgrading the group when the time comes.

That being said, I will be looking for contributors who are interested in assisting me with this. Send me a note either through the group, or more conveniently to my dA.  

The requirements are as follows:

-Age (will be taken into account)
-Contact information (skype, steam, etc)
-Past/current experience with groups (In other words: History. What groups have you been apart of?).
-An explanation on why you think you would be a good choice?
-(optional) Any referrals.

Simple enough. After they are submitted, I will contact you if I am consider granting you the position. We will then have a conversation so I can get a feel for how you are as a person.

This is the only means I have of obtaining contributors. Seeing as how I lost ties with the community, at least.

If you have any questions, leave a comment and I will get to you as soon as possible. No later than 2 years.

Thanks for understanding and for sticking around~

To be honest, I think this group needs some new upper-management.

You're talking to a corpse sadly. It is tragic places like these die.

I only dropped by here to clean my group memberships of inactive groups.

Not a bait or fearmonger.

Hello Half Life people. There was one Deviantart who's name is imPusible87 who posted a misplaced picture of so called, "Alyx from Half Life." His gallery might be misplaced for no reason. When I look over his account, I found out he might be a troll or degenerate or something else. Alyx Vance is a female character from Half Life 2, not a guy from Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I think he might be misleading or don't know why. Here's the picture that I found:…

I tried to comment on his artwork but I decided to cover it or else he will bribe me with his slang. Whatever you do, stay away from Impusible. Don't engage him.

So... this could still be alive if someone was just available to accept deviations?  Last thing was four years ago when the offer was given in a journal entry and it is still up above.  I am only really knowledgeable in the Half Life universe, with smidgens of Left4Dead, Portal and Team Fortress.  I am also versed in HL 1 and 2 mods, although with close to a 1,000 released for both, obviously it would take a life time to play them all.  ^^;

I think im the only one left whos able to accept deviations and I'm never around. Unfortunately I'm unable to give anyone permissions or even view members in the admin tab so even if someone wanted to step in and help I wouldnt be able to give those permissions.

Well this being one of, if not the biggest Valve/Half Life group around, that is downer for all involved.  Obviously not your fault.  Not to say I am qualified by the way, but others for sure could fill the roles to at the very least accept deviations and what not.  Half Life and Valve games in general are very much still alive and loved.  I was just checking.  Hopefully one day someone can do something.
