In the aftermath of a rather nonconstructive discussion yesterday night, @Lelling and I decided to part ways with Gamers Giving Back. We know that many of you have been looking forward to Pink Day in LA, and we are sorry to say that we will not even stay for that. Enough is enough.
Of course, if any of you wish to further support Gamers Giving Back, we won't hold it against anyone – they fight for a good cause after all. We just think that our and their ways of doing th
September & October is Pink Day Season as Pink Day in LA preparation, pre-events and main event are happening, with several weeks of events, tons of prizes and opportunities to win shiny stuff and / or get involved and help out! 🎉
Pink Day in LA is the annual cancer research fundraiser that we've participated in every year since OpenCommunity's inception, actively organising one megaserver and pre-events since 2015! This year, we are also getting involved, with the first pre-event
Now that everything's been successfully overhauled and rejigged, we're ready to get back into the saddle of actually actively existing, and just in time too, because it's almost time for OpenCommunity's birthday and the MS Toga Party!
Let's see what May has in store for us!
May 1st | OpenCommunity's Birthday!
On Wednesday, May 1st, at 20:00 CEST, we're hosting a little get-together to celebrate four years of OpenCommunity!
We'll get together on Teams
We've kept busy since our last update, with both a website and teamspeak overhaul, so let's dive right in and see what's new!
Community Assembly - Sunday, 21st of April, 18:00 CEST
First, we'd like to remind everyone that this Sunday, at 18:00 CEST, we'll be having our next Community Assembly! We'll be discussing the website & Teamspeak changes announced here, as well as some future ideas such as potential donation prizes, OC birthday plans, and other
As promised, we are continuing our steps to further align OpenCommunity with its core ideals. We've updated not only the channels on our Teamspeak, but also the website, with a brand new logo!
We're also happy to report that in the spirit of equality, all our members on Teamspeak have been awarded a Golden Cookie!
In the coming days, we will continue to improve the website to truly flesh it out in the spirit of OpenCommunity. Please stay tuned for further anno
As the reshaping of OC continues, the biggest, and so far most untouched, area that will need to be affected is Guild Wars 2. Let's talk about the future of Guild Wars 2 and OpenCommunity!
Guild Wars 2 Club
As part of the modernisation of our website, the Guild Wars 2 section has been moved into a club of its own, becoming our third specialized area of the website! This includes all the general Guild Wars 2 forums, but does not include the GW2 guild subforum
Things are picking up and our plans for the new and improved future of OpenCommunity are crystallising 😄 We've got a lot to share and we're hoping to share it all before the end of March, so let's get right to it!
Before we get right to it, here's a quick reminder that the next Community Assembly will be taking place on Saturday, March 23rd, at 18:00 CET!
During the Assembly, we'll be making new announcements, revealing a new proj
We've had a productive few days working hard on some upcoming changes, and in the next two weeks, we've got a lot of pretty big upcoming changes!
In order to open up a little bit of discussion, and to better be able to present and explore the upcoming changes, we figured it was about time for another Community Assembly!
The 3rd Community Assembly will be taking place on Saturday, March 23rd, at 18:00 CET!
The assembly will, as always, be taking place on Teamsp
Hey everyone! It's been a month since the last update, so it's about time for another one!
Let's get right to it!
Part 1 - Early Spring Cleaning
We've taken the old broom out of the cupboard for a bit, cleaning house a little bit, scrubbing some of the various old features on the website which are no longer in use out of the old shower curtain, polishing the silverware with some overall performance improvements, and afterwards we brought in some shiny new furniture to liven
We've been in downtime for quite a while now, and it's time for us to post an update regarding the state and future of OpenCommunity! But before we move forward, let's take a look at how we got here.
Let's Start at the Very Beginning
I hear it's a very good place to start.
When OpenCommunity was founded, its goal was to create an inclusive space and community which is based on communication, collaboration, and solidarity, particularly as an answer to toxic
