  1. Last week
  2. I've been looking at the responses, and taking into account that Saturdays often have to give way to things like meetings and special events, and my Fridays are already taken, I think the best time is going to be Wednesdays ^^ However, please note that just because I'm doing it on Wednesday, doesn't mean you can't do it on Fridays & Saturdays, there are clearly enough people who are interested in those two days, so if anyone wants to start their own game night, feel free to shout here So, if you're interested, join us on Wednesday at... shall we say.. 19:00 CEST, on Teamspeak! We'll be in a group channel somewhere
  3. Not a video essayist, but one of my favorite new youtube discoveries is the channel Worldbuilding Notes! The creator is amazingly creative and talented, and the videos she makes are super interesting and definitely active those creative brain cells if you ever find yourself in a creative slump

    Can't wait to have a Cup of tea! 

    It has been one great year with OC, thanks for all the work you do and for such a great Community where everyone got a place to be how she or he is. Best wishes for the Future, Yaanawo!

    Do we have more specific hours? I'd love to get schedule of whole event to be sure I won't miss my favorite parts, and having kid on board is perfect distractor without any control of time
  13. Hey guys, The Council have been for a long time talking about which events we do in the community but now we want to pass it to our members, so this topic will be for anyone to put down which events they would like our community doing in the future.
  14. As discussed during the OC Birthday, I'd like to follow up on this and see who is interested! Lelling, Slaywright and Viridian already expressed some interested (in fact, I'm blatantly stealing this idea from Lelling and Slaywright). Don't worry, no experience is expected or required, just gonna be a chill run through the game, nothing too serious! It's an old game, but it's a classic, a must play for everyone indeed! In game, parties go up to 8 people, so if we get more, we're gonna have to split up, but this is no problem! The more the merrier! If you don't own the game, you can buy it on the Blizzard Store OR I can loan up to 2 people a cd-key (since I own multiple copies) Let us know if you wanna game, and maybe some availability times!
  15. Sorry for the announcement coming out so last minute, everyone I've been really swamped these last few weeks!
  16. Hey everyone! 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 Teamspeak, and decide what we want to do from there! We could just hang out and chat and catch up, or we could try our hand at some fun events in-game, do some racing, some fun hide & seek, or revisit one of our old favorite events we haven't done in a while! The choice is yours! On this day, we can also decide if we want to make any advance plans for May 4th! To celebrate OpenCommunity's birthday, just like every year, any donation made to OpenCommunity will count double for the first 10 days of May! You can find the various supporter perks on our Donate page, which has just come online, after we took it down in November for our downtime! If you donate during that time period, you'll also get the exclusive 4th Birthday Supporter badge & icon on Teamspeak! We thank you for your support! May 4th | OC's Birthday Party Because May 1st is a weekday, we can reserve a slightly bigger chunk of time on Saturday, May 4th, to get together and hang out! The initial plan is to get together at 18:00 CEST, but if on Wednesday we decide to meet up earlier, we can do that too! We can again play some games, hang out in Guild Wars 2, do some events, or just chat and catch up! May 11th | Toga Party for Multiple Sclerosis! May 11th is the day of the Toga Party for MS, and it's going to be great! Toga Party is a day full of fun events, legendary giveaways, and tons and tons of prizes, all with the goal of raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis care & research! The official event is scheduled to start on Saturday, May 11th, at 19:00 CEST, but we might have some pre-events on EU before that time to get us all into the party mood, so stay tuned! Check out the event on the calendar for more info! May 19th | 5th Community Assembly After Toga, we'll be having another Community Assembly where all members of our community are invited to come together and participate in open discussions regarding OpenCommunity's future, as well as discussing any big upcoming events. Check out the event on the calendar to find out more about specific topics planned for this Assembly! The assembly is scheduled for Sunday, May 19th, at 18:00 CEST! May 25th | Tyria Pride Volunteer Meeting June is Pride Month, and once again, for the 4th time in a row, we'll be organising Tyria Pride! Tyria Pride is a fun get-together where we celebrate the diversity of our and the GW2 community and as always, try to raise some funds for a good cause! If you'd like to get involved, share ideas and suggestions, or just learn more about the event, join us on the volunteer meeting! That's it for May, as you can see we'll be keeping pretty busy! Hope to see you at these events!

  20. Hello, everyone! June is just around the corner, and just like every year, we will be organising Tyria Pride, an in-game march across all of Central Tyria to show support to our LGBTQ+ friends & guildies! The Tyria Pride event is planned for end of June, our current most likely candidate being the 2nd to last weekend of the month! On top of that, we're hoping to do tons of pre-events all around June, and here's where you come in! To pull this off, and make Tyria Pride bigger than ever, we're inviting everyone to join us on the Tyria Pride volunteer / planning meeting, which will be happening on May 25th! Meeting Information Date: Saturday, May 25th Time: 12 PM CDT | 19:00 CEST Teamspeak address: OpenCommunity The meeting is open to both EU & NA volunteers! Whether you're a guild, a group, a community, or just an individual who wants to help out, join the meeting and see how you can get involved! Meeting Topics Topics that we'll be discussing on the meeting will be finalizing all the event specifics, including locking in the dates, planning and discussing pre-events, as well as picking our fundraiser goal! Each year, during the event, we highlight a different LGBTQ+ related fundraiser. 2016: Orlando Pulse Club victims fund 2017: Rainbow Railroad, an organisation that helps LGBT individuals escape violence & persecution in their home countries 2018: The Human Rights Campaign Foundation For this year, we've got a couple ideas, such as ILGA, the International Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, but we're open to all suggestions until the fundraiser goal is locked in after the meeting. Our goal this year is to find an organisation which benefits the lives of queer people on an international level, and focuses on helping individuals directly.
  21. What is the Community Assembly? The Community Assembly is a community-wide meeting open to everyone, where we can share plans for the upcoming future of the community, hear ideas from our members and discuss any questions, quandaries and concerns people might be having related to the community. Anyone can come along and voice their concerns, ask questions, share ideas, as well as ask for clarifications on any matters regarding the community What will be the big topics? Any topics can be brought up by members, but major topics that will be brought up by the OC staff relate to the changes in the community, what we hope they will achieve, and the future we're hoping to build for the community. We'll be discussing the aftermath of Toga Party 2019, as well as our plans for June, including Tyria Pride, and the public announcement of the GW2 League! More topics might accrue over time as we get closer to the assembly! And as always, if you'd like to discuss other topics, don't be afraid to bring them up! Whether you have questions yourself, or you'd just like to come and hear what others have to say or what the plans for the future are, we hope to see you at the 4th Community Assembly!

    MS Toga Party

    What is the MS Toga Party? Toga Party for MS is a charity fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis care and research, happening on both EU & NA servers in GW2, with a 10-year history going back to GW1! The event will be on Saturday, May 11, with the official kickoff at 19:00 CEST, with hours of fun events and activities, cool prizes, and on-air legendary giveaways! On EU side, we are also going to be doing some pre-events, starting at 16:00 CEST, to get everyone into the party mood! You can drop in at any time during the event to hang out or join the next activity, or you can stick around throughout the entire event for maximum fun & prizes! How to join? To join the event, keep an eye out on LFG, or join by connecting to one of the hosts' voice platforms, where they'll help you get into the right map! Since the Toga Party happens simultaneously on EU and NA, EU hosts might organise some pre-events or other activities to compensate for the evening start, so keep an eye out for any afternoon events! Host information will be announced here after the final volunteer meeting on April 27th! Fundraiser Information We are fundraising for the MS Society of Canada, and the money will go to international research grants! You can find the fundraiser here: http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/toga19 You can also redeem this donation with OpenCommunity, to get extra shinies and a nice MS Toga 2019 badge - you can find this info on our donate page! Anyone who donates to the fundraiser and redeems their reward using the "Redeem Badge" button can have their donation added to their OpenCommunity supporter reward progress, as well as get the exclusive MS Toga Party 2019 website and TS badge! Any donation over $10 CAD is also eligible to receive an MS Toga 2019 pin or magnet! Activities During the event, there'll be tons of activities where players can compete for prizes, and there'll be some legendary on-air giveaways, and tons of fun stuff to do! The activities during the event will be taking place in Divinity's Reach, as well as certain starter areas. Our coordinators will be leading the event in squad chat as well as in voice, and regularly communicating any necessary info in other chat channels! Participation is open to everyone, including free-to-play and low-level players, and there are no specific prerequisites for joining! Balloon Brawl What better way to celebrate the onset of warm temperatures than to have a fun water balloon fight? The Balloon Brawl is a fun free-for all battle that anyone can participate in! Tonic Race The Tonic Race will test your racing skill on equal footing - no mounts, no special abilities, just you, transformed into something adorable, and the wide open world! Note that tonics will be provided! Fashion Wars Our longest-running event, Fashion Wars is truly an all-time favorite. Bring your best, most original, creative, dramatic, or fun looks to the runway, and please the judges! This year's theme: Orange is the New Black! Scavenger Hunt The Scavenger Hunt tests your speed as well as your wit! Participants will receive a number of hints about various locations, people, or indeed objects that they must locate, and then it's just a matter of piecing it all together! And many more! In addition to the four main events, there will also be a plethora of smaller, fun activities, on-air prize giveaways, and other fun events and mini-games!
  23. Happy birthday, Yaanawo! ❤️ 🍰 🎉
