Stand Together

Today stands for a lot. 16 years ago, many people were lost in the terror attacks on September 11th, 2001. Moving forwards from that day, America has seen many changes. Those lost then- And those who cared for them- Shall not be forgotten.

But with every tragedy, we become more united. Ultimately, we must continue to stand strong together. Tragedy cannot break us.

As much as some like to meme about it, let’s take this time to show respect- For this tragedy, and all the troubles we’ve faced, and continue to hold out.


Many of GSA’s members live along the East coast of the United States and Canada, and in the wake of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Katia, and Jose soon to follow, we’ve been put through stressful times. But we can hold on, and make it through this.

To everyone affected by these storms; Have a plan, and be careful. And though we can’t do much, we’re all looking out for eachother, and you have our support.

Whatever happens, we’ll fight through it, and we will not lose spirit.

Some Site Updates

Since I reacquired my status as Site Editor on the website after I once again rejoined the clan. I have decided to go and make some changes and other fixes on the website. This site was almost in a kinda sad state when I saw the contents, so I go on ahead and clean up as much of the pages as possible. Here are the changes listed below.

  • Fixed the urls for some of the pages such as the Members and Ranks pages.
  • Removed [+] on pages containing multiple subpages since they are no longer needed.
  • Removed some of the table of contents that are now longer available or public on the GSA website. Added ones that weren’t listed on the contents.
  • Created a new Members List page, the old one was absolutely messy and hard to follow and keep track of the lists, so a draft became a better alternative. As a result, I have privatized the old page which only admins and editors can access.
  • Updated Widgets
  • Fixed GSA News Page Link Directory
  • Added new Members List

 

Unfortunately new WordPress theme requires widgets to get pages to be visible on the website and only Administrators can adjust that, meaning I can’t make the new Members List public since I am only an editor. However, I can still link the page since it is already published

@Admins if possible, I request temporary Admin rights to adjust the widgets and also attempt to fix the GSA News page directory too if I get the site position for a while.

Anyways, here is the link to the new updated list

If your name is not listed, comment below. And also please list what platforms do you play on? Whether it’d be Xbox, Playstation or Steam, it is recommended, if you use any of these platforms.

UPDATE – The new official Members List has been added. Replacing the old one. It is now properly accessible.

Net Neutrality and You

Today is the International Day of Action for Net Neutrality, hence this post.

What is net neutrality?

Net neutrality is the idea that all data should be treated equally by ISPs, no matter the source. This means that all data is delivered to you in the most efficient way possible without unnecessary delays or paywalls.

How does it affect me?

Without net neutrality rules, companies seeking a profit may implement all sorts of rules restricting or slowing access to content that they please. These may include:

  • Imposing a fee upon websites, which if not paid would result in reduced speeds.
  • Overall reduced access to more sources of information and entertainment, further consolidating and homogenizing the Internet.
  • Possible censorship of information if deemed controversial or damaging to business interests.
  • BitTorrent throttling en-masse; goodbye piracy!

Who is involved in the fight for net neutrality?

Many of your favorite companies and people are involved in the fight to keep net neutrality as law.

  • Mozilla (Firefox)
  • Twitter
  • Twitch
  • Netflix
  • Tim Berners-Lee (the creator of the Web)
  • Netflix
  • OkCupid
  • College Humor
  • Vimeo
  • Google
  • Airbnb
  • Reddit
  • Amazon
  • Facebook
  • And of course, Pzk M!

What can I do to help keep net neutrality?

Write a letter to the FCC supporting net neutrality. Click this link to do so. Thanks for participating!

Anniversary Gamenight?

OLD-GSA_Eagle_1000x1000 color fix

In one week, GSA will be officially turning 6 years old.

Pzk and I were recently discussing a bit of a gamenight on the 24th-26th, to celebrate the occasion.

Who’s up for a gamenight? We’ll probably play a bit of everything. Maybe some Pb2, but probably more of something else. We have lots of options; We’ll probably set up an arena game for our newest recruits in Space Engineers. Maybe some oGaT, or something new. Or maybe some Cards Against Humanity GSA.

Who’s up for it? And, any ideas? Always open.

Everyone from the community is welcome to join us on Discord for celebrations!

I hope to see you all there~

Official return

A while back I declared myself officially inactive. While I’ve been back a while, I am now declaring myself active again. (This post is partially because I forgot to make this post.)

Anyways, pretty soon I’ll be working up some devious new plans. I’ll get back to you on that.

Gamenight Carnage report

Writing on behalf of the game night hosted by Jeep.

Alright. Game night is back!

Lets get straight to the report, shall we.

Gamenight’s return has been a success. We had a moderate crowd of players. Gamenight spanned 5 rounds.

4. Plurus Porynm: 56

Final

I must say, I’m very happy that game night has returned. After a few failures, Game Night is back, and soon to be going better than ever.

While this game night was a little brief, it went very well, all in all, and everyone had a great time.

FINAL SCORE:
1. Jeepdino: 475
2. LoneWolf: 246
3. JayaRaya: 145
4. SpiderSonic: 100

Jeep Dino has stolen the title of Champion from Axel, who has been our longest reigning champion of game night.


I’d like to thank all of our participants. It was a nice come back for the event. And of course, I’d like to thank Jeep for hosting, while I’ve still been experiencing technical issues. And of course, much love to the map makers, who truly make this game what it is.


~I hope to see you all again soon.
