Wowee! It's been awhile (only four months) since our last Week in Review. Our server has been growing and with that, we have had wonderful opportunities for our members to participate in server wide events and plenty of debates. We have hosted numerous AMAs in the past few months with well known political commentators such as Hasan Piker from The Young Turks and FaradaySpeaks, who had a viral video on YouTube on how he escaped the Alt-Right Pipeline on the Internet. We also had several game developers from Creepy Jar Games who came in and talked to users about their new video game Green Hell, one of the most realistic and accurate survival games out there. We also rolled out our personalized Calliopean Coin system, which allows users to trade and earn coins through being active and contributing quality posts in our text channels. We are in the first stage of rolling out the system, and the second stage of the Calliopean Coin system will be announced soon! As for what's happening now in the server, we have a few events planned. • For the month of October, the Spooky sub club is hosting an event where you will post a photo of the spookiest or quirkiest costume you own, full-face makeup can be included (if it does not give away your actual identity). A latter option is posting your own Halloween decorations and/or creations that include drawings, food, party set up, etc. The top three winners will receive Calliopean Coins! •Rule Britannia Club will be hosting a Parliamentary Style Debate on October 12th at 2pm EST/7pm GMT. This type of debate is the most popular form of academic debate used at universities worldwide; it tests your ability to quickly come up with good arguments and argue them rhetorically with a partner. Sign-ups are open, just ask a moderator how to join! The Calliopean Week in Review will return to weekly updates, so stay tuned!
