Volunteer Meeting for MS Toga! Saturday, April 6th 18:00 CEST!
Hello everyone!

The year has rolled around and it's time for the Toga Party for Multiple Sclerosis! We are once again teaming up with Gamers Giving Back to host the Toga Party on the EU servers, and we're inviting anyone from OpenCommunity to join us on the first OC Volunteer Meeting, which is open to everyone!

The MS Toga Party is an in-game event dating all the way back to 2009 in Guild Wars 1, when a bunch of people gathered together to create a fun event to raise some money for MS research! Over the years we've raised tens of thousands of dollars for the MS care and research, with grants going around the world!

The in-game event features a bunch of fun in-game events and contests with cool prizes, tons of fun, and live legendary giveaways!

The main event is on May 11th, but don't worry, if you can't make it on the day and would still love to help out, come to the volunteer meeting, and we'll see how you can help!

For more information, or if you have any questions or comments, feel free to reply to this post, private message me on the forums, or contact me in-game at Lelling.6795!

Community Update #4.1 - OpenCommunity For The People
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 announcements later today, detailing the new redistribution of power and responsibilities amongst the members, as well as additional announcements regarding our Teamspeak changes tomorrow!

 

We are really looking forward to taking OpenCommunity one step closer to the ideals mapped out in its initial founding!

SFSN!

Introducing the New Let's Game hangout!
In our continuous effort to refresh and update our website, we've given a facelift to our old Let's Game forum, and have turned it into the brand new Let's Game club!

The Let's Game club is the new go-to place to talk about anything game-related. Talk about your favorite games, share screenshots and discuss specific games the community's playing en masse, or just share stories from your single-player adventures.

The Let's Game section comes with all the same powers it had before, and some new ones to boot!

Hey everyone! It's been a month since the last update, so it's about time for another one!

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 up the place slightly!

This update also features information regarding the new autonomous group and generally outlines some of our plans for the future!
