The 8th Era – A few formal statements

GSA-Gold

In light of recent events, a few formal statements must be made. There’s alot to cover, and I’m going to do my best inform of these changes.

As of August 27th, 2017 Jeep has stepped down as the leader of GSA and retired, for personal reasons, and has passed leadership down to me. Him, and many other have put their faith into me, and I intend to take this position proudly and to not let anyone down. But I can’t do this alone. Everyone needs to contribute to GSA, and luckily I have support in this. But everyone has a part to play, and by their very nature, the changes we need to make require all of us to do our part.

Activity has dwindled for years now, and truly has been since the death of EKAT and a wide spread loss of interest and excitement. While we can’t quite return to how things were, we can get our community back up to a point of excitement and activity, keeping new members engaged in activity and forming the kinds of bonds we did when we were new to this community.

Ultimately our goal is to get back that golden part of those days. I’ve been with GSA for years now, starting from the bottom, and that experience has formed unshakable bonds between our members. The best thing we can do is to provide that kind of community again for our newcomers.


A few changes needed to be made. I’ll state some of what has been done so far, and some of what we still need. This is not necessarily complete, simply for practicality, and that alot must still be considered.

The rules page has been updated, but we still need to do more. Ultimately our laws have become too loose to serve as a proper system in many cases, and while this was intended in older reforms, it has failed. While we should not crowd the page with countless laws specific to a game we no longer play or to systems we no longer use, we do need to know a defined and precise time to take action when needed, and how to deal with issues.

Menus have been reorganized, and close to final. More changes will likely be made, though. Priority has been placed on more important pages, and less demanding info has been moved back into archives.

The banned list has had some fixed. Old entries unlawfully removed were restored, and in light of recent events some new have been added.

The staff is being worked on, revised and put together to work as a new team. Together, we’ll be making the changes we need, and taking feedback from all the community. I’m working to make sure all of our staff are active and cooperating for the better of GSA. A more official announcement will be made, once I have assembled the team fully.


And as a formal declaration, for the case of history being recorded, I declare now that July of 2017 is the start of the 8th era of GSA history.

It was then that we truly started improving the clan and aiming to make us a better community. With the changes of this week, this turn of history is cemented.

Additionally, Jeep has most certainly earned an immortal place on the wall of fame for his service as one of the best leaders GSA has seen in all it’s history.


If anyone would like to dispute the changes made, please take it up with me. We can all make this work, and feedback is important.

Hoping to serve you well ~

Administration shakeup. [Expired]

This is a post where the people will choose whether or not to oust current member of the Administration team. Please comment below with a “+” to keep the desired person in their current office, or a “-” to oust them in favor of someone new. Do this for every person listed, not just one or two. Those who are ousted will likely be made moderators. Also, I will moderate this post. So if everyone else could let it be so that there’s no confusion or double counted posts, that would be much appreciated.

Updated laws page + Updated laws & regs

Halo5-GSA

I was looking over the laws page, and it came to my attention that it needed a few touch ups. I did a general check for any errors and fixed any small thing I found, and also made some additions.

As follows is the previous state of the page; (Note that only text color is changed. Notes will be present.)

Time to work.

As you all should know by now, we have moved from Plazma Burst 2, and are now considered something of a gaming community. While this is likely to have been a good move on our part, it cannot last without a certain amount of effort being put into it. We may be “alive” for now, but if we don’t keep an influx of players joining, we will never survive beyond our clan generation. If we are to continue to thrive beyond this recent period of expansion, we need to put in the work required for it. Every able body needs to be doing something to recruit. Enter games, and invite some people to check us out. Most of our current members are elders in game-terms. We need a next generation to come in and learn to lead, so that we may be replaced when the time comes.

I don’t know about you all, but I don’t intend to be the one in charge when GSA finally goes out. That day will not be today, and it will not be any time that I lead. I will not be the leader that fails the GSA and the leaders before me. If you want the same thing, then I suggest the work begin. Old rivalries or enemies need to be forgiven. Old grudges need to be let go. I don’t want to wait for the last minute to go crazy recruiting. Let’s start now and never get to that point. We need to get to work if we are to survive.

Plazma Burst 2.5 Update

So, as many of you may know, Eric Gurt has begun work on his latest project…

This new project is known as Pb2.5- A complete remake of PB2. He’s redoing the engine, and most of the game, adding in tons of new stuff.

For those unaware, you can get all the information Here

Final Vote

GSA has reached an ultimatum. There are two options.

[POLL CLOSED] Option 1 has won.

1. Make GSA a gaming clan.

  • We will renovate ranks.
  • We will become serious on Steam.

2. Keep GSA as a roleplaying clan.

  • We will die off slowly.
  • We will keep the site and current ranks.
  • We will be as lazy as ever.

 

Gaming Clan: 7 Votes

Roleplaying Clan: 0 Votes

Pzk needs to set an end date for the vote, as per vote regulations.

Change is inevitable (OUTDATED)

I know many of yall will crap your pants and whine and throw temper tantrums, but it’s time yall stop acting like babies and let this change come. The only thing that can be relied on is change. To just keep rolling with the many changes going on in gsa, we the FG would like the members of gsa to suggest a name that we can change to. Though the option to keep our name GSA is there, it won’t be fitting to the changes to come. The first 10 names that are deemed appropriate and useable will be voted on.

NO NAMES THAT ARE INAPPROPRIATE, DEROGATORY, POLITICAL, OR JUST PLAIN STUPID WILL BE ALLOWED

Your friend and alloy,

BronzeV

GSA: Fixes

Hey fellow GSA members, Night here, and today I propose to you an option to participate in making GSA better and being a actual part of it. Now I have several plans I’m gonna propose after this post but I want to hear from you all on what YOU think, yes you in the crowd of blue smurfs. So therefore:

  1. What do you think is needed for GSA?

  2. What would get you interested?

  3. Are the current games we have listed as our main (PB2, Planetside 2, Warframe and World of Tanks-all free btw) good enough?

  4. Would you want to change something up or even voice an opinion?

  5. And how are we, The Supremes, doing so far?

I ask a few questions but you guys can add to them or ask one and provide a response to it, I want some feedback so I can add your opinions if they fit. Also, this is you lot participating so more power to GSA. Thanks for reading and as always,

Night is occasionally Right (Jonb7 edited this, sic ’em boys!)

Appeal of BlackBird

THE VOTE IS OVER, AND BLACKBIRDS BAN IS SUSTAINED.

 

Alrite guys. Blackbird has asked for an appealment of his ban. Now i don’t know the circumstances of his ban, and i’ve been told that he wasn’t put under trial.

 

Keep Blackbird on the ban list + (6)

Remove Blackbird from the ban list -(1)

Hold a proper court trial for Blackbird=(1) [after receiving further information on the matter. It has came to my understanding that Blackbird has quit and because of that he cannot receive a trial.]
