Usually referred to as Joe, he has been admin'ing and moderating communities since 2004. He was heavily active in games like Cybernations, Runescape and other MMORPG/Online games. Has since left most to focus solely on the Steam Community.
He also finds the fact that he's writing in the third person right now a little strange. He wants to thank all the staff and regulars for helping create something that he is both proud to be part of and still in awe of.
Please don't beg for free items from him(me). Also don't be offended if I am shit at answering your messages, I am always trying to do multiple things and sometimes Steam Messages slip through, feel free to add me, as long as you're not an ass.
Now this is a bio all about how
My admining got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
And read how I became the head admin here
In East Arizona born and raised
On the computer is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out tradin' jokin' all cool
And all adminin' being a fool
When a specific guy was up to no good
Started makin' sentences who no one understood
We got in one little fight and I didn't care
And so I left to a place that couldn't compare.
I begged and pleaded with Joe day after day
But he ignored and sent me on my way
I gave him suggestions for a community that would be fit
He got some balls and said I might as well quit
First week yo this is awesome
Creatin' a server thinkin what it might become
Is this what we should have done a long time ago?
Hmmm this might really grow
But I start searchin, coding and all that
Is this the type of place that I should code at?
I think so I'll start learning somewhere
I hope they're prepared for crashes everywhere
Well the coding improved and plugins came out
There was a plugin that made my name stand out
I ain't tryin' to brag yet I just got here
I imagined what my coding would be like in a year.
I kept at it and coding became clear
The server became popular and I made plugins appear!
If anything I could say that this community was rare
But I thought lets make it special, No one could compare!
Time flashes to 1 year later.
I see the servers always full of players
Looking at this place over the year,
I'm glad my home is right here.
Screw it, I can't write in third person.
Hi all, Im Bottswana, or Botts for short. Since so many ask, the name came from a nickname I had back at school all those years ago and due to my lack of creative talent I ended up using it as my Steam handle.
I've been helping manage TF2 communities for nearly 6 years now, mostly keeping the now long running and event server going. It's seen quite a few name changes in its past and is slowly leaving us as the community a whole changes, but that dosen't mean my job here is done.
I help manage Harpoon, Maintain servers, and code stuff (The donator system is mine <3). Been coding since I was 18 and can code in PHP, C++, Java, Python, SourcePawn, Lua and a few others not worth mentioning. I don't really trade items so I wouldn't add me to ask if I want to sell stuff, It's not really my thing.
I may seem like a Jackass at some times, though generally this is me and Joe being stupid. I'm pretty easy going (If your name isn't Joe) so if you have any questions feel free to ask me.
-J PS: What the hell is a Liger?
I'm Nimajin or if you want, you can call me Amin. I'm a teenager who lives in Denmark. I currently go to High school and work a part time job at what would essentially be the Danish equivalent to Walmart. I enjoy listening to Rap & Hip-hop, some of my favorite artists are: SchoolBoy Q, Kendrick Lamar, & Eminem. I don't watch many shows; however, I did enjoy watching The Walking Dead & Breaking Bad.
I've been a huge fan of video games from an early age. Starting out with games such as Tekken on the PlayStation alongside with Rayman and Pokemon on the Gameboy. Since then I moved over to PC, where I would primarily play RuneScape (10+ YO account). Counter-Strike: Source would then go on to become my primary game followed by Team Fortress 2 when it went Free-to-Play. These days I mostly play Team Fortress 2 and PAYDAY 2.
I would like to consider myself a positive, openminded, and friendly person. If you have any issues or would just like to talk, feel free to send me a friend request!
This is Jacob, he likes to play on the TTT server, even though he is pretty bad at the game. He loves hanging out with all of the people of Harpoon Gaming. If you ever want to play TTT or you want to learn how, give him a shout. Also, if you ever need someone to talk to, he will listen if he isn't busy.
Horplamus, Interim TTT Manager
Good evening, my name is Horplamus (Pronounced Hor-Pla-Mus) or David. I am a Forums and TTT admin. You can usually find me on the TTT server during the week; however I do visit the TF2 and other servers when I get a chance.
When not playing TTT or TF2 you can usually find me playing one of the games from the Dark souls/Demon's Souls series of games or perhaps even a nice Indie game which I have found recently.
So that's the end of my short biography, I look forward to seeing you in the Server or on the Forums. <3

Sugoni, Staff Training
Sugoni, a perpetually 14 year old University student that was born in 1998, has been around harpoon since the summer of 2014 when they started getting in to tf2. Initially getting into trading because a random stranger on a prophunt server gifted them 2 strange fire axes It became a great pastime for them, even venturing into trading CSGO skins and building up an admirable collection in both TF2 and CS:GO.
Being completely useless at everything, they're not sure who thought it was a good idea to let them on to the staff team but it seems to be working out alright so far.
Enrolled in a Cinematic Arts course; Sugoni is an avid lover of films, and has been interested in photography since they were around 11 or 12. Although making films is the goal, going out for walks in the middle of the night and early morning to take some photos are the best ways to relax for them and will always result in a smile on their face.
Sugoni hasn't been on the journey of life for very long, but they definitely look forward to seeing what it throws at them.
Shadows, All-Trade & Unusual
Shadows is currently the head admin of TF2WH.com (TF2 Warehouse), an active member of the Harpoon Gaming staff, and was formerly a long time admin and mapper for MCT (Mann Co Trading). The latter two positions carried Steam Rep Green Shields. If you ever need to confirm his identity, going to SR to confirm that shield and the head admin WH note is a good way to do it. Shadows also owns one of the top 3 backpacks in TF2 (the position moves sometimes), so it is easy to confirm his identity through that.
Having started trading in 2011 and after logging over 12,500 hours in TF2, Shadows has seen a little bit of everything and is glad to share those experiences with those of you who come to the All-trade servers. That said, please don't ask him for free items or offer terrible deals, he didn't get here by being a bad trader and won't support that kind of thing. Keep your trading safe and fun and your chat friendly and uninsulting, and you'll do just fine with him.
Thanks for reading and happy trading!
Reggie, All-Trade & Discord
Reggie is a part time gamer and full time memer. He loves to play games such as Yu-Gi-Oh!, TF2 and Overwatch. Reggie usually hangs out on the HG discord so if you see him typing a message, make sure to say hi as he is on most of the time(except when he is sleeping or out). He mainly likes to post about memes so if you want a fresh meme, make sure to ask him and he will deliver like mcdonalds delivery in korea. Outside of the internet, Reggie likes to do absolutely nothing and sit his ass all day on a computer.
If you have any inquiries regarding discord, make sure to send him a message as he will usually respond. Thank you for using your time to read this and have a nice day.
My name's Lun aka Cynthia, I've been apart of the f-o-g community since June 25th of 2017 until the recent upcoming shutdown. I'm always available and can take questions if you need anything from me, whether it's an administrative question or a personal one.
Hello, name's maestro. I'm a car enthusiast and a pre-tf2 nerd. Kind of lost the feel for gaming but I play occassionally, and when I do, its trade servers which is my cup of tea.
Enjoying life to the max with two stunning cars. Also a gf that cooks me food when I get back home from work.
Also, I'm a Audi fanboy, so fite me bimmers and benz boys.
I hail from a place called F-o-G, I was an admin on trade from 2012 till it's shutdown on 31-10-2018.
So I might be a bit rusted in old F-o-G ways and that might show.
I enjoy talking to random people and watching chaos also known as trade servers.
I'm an electrical engineer that helps maintain the powergrid LV/HV.
As for games I play, well pretty much everything I find interesting.
If you have any questions feel free to add me~
