Calliopean Club 2.0***

Oh... Hey, look at this! An update! Thanks, seasonal depression, for removing my will to type these out! Now that we're back for at least the next few months before I spiral deeply into a lightless hole, let's get some changes sorted!

We revamped the entire server! All the ranks and roles got changed! We livin' the Feudalism life now, son. Everyone is ranked based off of their value in "Calliopean Coin" and are promoted and demoted automagically based on how bad (or good) they are with money. Communists heard crying in the corner are to be ignored.

We're a streaming server now, too? Yeah, I think we decided on that. The server owner, Eris, streams now and she's kinda good at it and we didn't want her to have to run two servers. We merged her streaming server with CC and it's working so far. The.... loyal twitch viewers get their own channel for Eris to talk with them in and some special goodies that are specific to the twitch areas of the server. The rest of the server remains unaffected by their devotion and loyalty to Eris' streams.

We're doing more AMAs! We recent had one with an actual Monk who wanted to dispel some myths and rumors as well as give us all a better understanding of what a monk is! Also, with the lads from the Kings And Generals channel drop by! I had been watching the latter's channel for years and was pretty excited to get to get to know how things began and progressed.

We're going to start a NEW debate tournament up again soon. Details are scarce as of yet, but oh lawd he comin and you best be ready for im'.

Subclubs!? SUBCLUBS! There's no limit on joining them, now. Enjoy. Also, we added a few and removed some others. Not much to say here, really. They're doing great events, pulling in their own AMAs and just doing cool stuff.

Join and experience some of the changes or just stick around and wait for an AMA or an event and see if you like them! We'll see you there.

America Did An Election

... And we're all being very civil about the outcome. Right? RIGHT? Not a chance, but we are enjoying the memes and the looming possibility of mass civil unrest. We're gonna try this UPDATE a bit different. I say "different", but what I really mean to say is "shorter" because I'm "lazy" and I'll have done two of these updates already and honestly... I'm tired. You're probably tired too. Come rest your head on my lap while I read you this lovely monthly recap.

EVENTS

Mark Ledwich -- came for an AMA and taught us how he disproved the idea that YouTube radicalizes people through its recommendations algorithm.

Debate Tournament mk2 -- We're still at it with the final weeks of the second CC Debate Tournament and it's gone well. We started this month out with some spicy debates about SCOTUS topics in honor of some old woman who should have retired 12 years ago. We've trimmed the fat off this ladder and we're in the final stretches -- so if you want to hear the best debates this tournament has to offer, now's the time to get the popcorn and the invite link.

Furry Round Table -- Honestly I'm not really sure what to say here... We did a Furry Round Table and we're all a little disappointed in ourselves, but apparently it was a good time. It went on for FIVE HOURS. Honestly, I'm not sure how Alice managed to survive through that.

Halloween Masquerade -- As is tradition, we had a bit of a costume party in the ol' "Calliopean Coven". We dun theme'd er' up and made it all real spooky-like. The whole day was weird. We had mods dressed up as other mods, users dressed up as bots, bots dressed up as -- no, actually the bots didn't partake. Anyway, it was fun. I was a toilet. I flushed. It was a good time. But nobody had as good a time as 7 as John Cena. Nobody saw him ALL day, read the nomination they received. Naturally, they won the Gift Card we offered up as a prize.

Election STUFF -- America did another election, shockingly. We watched some news coverage of the election night... Yelled at Skipples for screwing up timing on stuff... Yelled at eachother... Yelled at the screen... Went to bed very depressed... Actually, those last two were mainly me.

Round Tables -- Kyosan has been hosting some weekly round tables recently, and we're not gonna stop him. We had one just yesterday, actually, about the US Election. Shocking! It's actually just kinda nice to bring everyone with an interest together and have a rational discussion about a topic.... Which is kind of our thing, actually. Come do it with us. Or don't. I'm not your boss.

SUBCLUBS

Club Of The Month -- Leftist Club was the CLEAR winner this month. They've been incredibly active lately and are turning into the example of what we want our Subclubs to look like.

Subclub Events -- We've seen a major spike is subclub events recently and it's been fantastic for activity overall. Just in the past few weeks we've seen 45 SUBCLUB EVENTS. Whether that's to discuss anime and mangoo, the impending failure of liberal democracy, or just to have a Talent Show. It's been a great month and we're excited about seeing what you guys do in the next one.

Event Of The Month -- I did mention the Talent Show, right? Yeah, well that was some hilarious fun and you guys in the Music Club deserved that win. Do that more often it was awesome.

CHANGES

THE CHANGES! Soon

RULES -- THEY GETTING A CHANGING SOON!

PROMOTIONS -- THEY DOING A CHANGING SOON, TOO! Karma is your new best friend.

PERMISSIONS -- They actually did change. We'll let you know more about it soon (in the server), but basically you just ain't doin cool shit if you ain't a citizen.

We Remembered!

Oh, hey… We remembered! Someone mark this on the calendar! Oh, right we didn’t follow through with that idea… Never mind! On with the update!... I’m gonna have to write a lot of these, aren’t I?

We made it another month without a meteor hitting or a life-changing event and, frankly, I call that a success. We did, however, make a weekly SCHEDULE of (potentially) life changing events on Calliopean Club! Every Monday and Thursday YOU get a ping telling you exactly what events we’re having that week! Interested in one? Click the emoji react and you’ll receive a ping when the event you wanted to join starts up!

Outside of useful changes, we also made… CHANGES! The club system got that revamp we talked about and everyone was totally happy and nobody had pitchforks out for about a week and a half -- promise! We, totally unrelated to the peace and happiness those changes sparked, also added the “Observer” role (We tried for a creepier name, but had a difficult time deciding). It lets you do stuff with all the clubs instead of the 5 you’re now limited to.

SubClubs? SUBCLUBS? Clubs? Subs? Whatever, this is confusing. We keep changing the branding. Speaking of changes… DECAPRE! He’s the new adult in charge of our staff team that administers our Subclubs. Over the past month he’s totally revamped the way we organize the clubs, rank them based on a number of metrics, and schedule events. Just wanted to include this because of how much we appreciate his work.

I have no segue for this, but… Mom (ERIS) made a Twitter account. Our FEARLESS leader decided to venture forth into the wild unknown of social media and has made an account for… dog pictures? I’m contractually not allowed to disagree with her FANTASTIC choices so I think we can all agree that this is amazing. Follow her. Please. If you don’t I might get the hose again.

WE STILL NEED MODS! For a server like Calliopean Club to exist, we need constant moderation to maintain the level of quality we advertise and expect. Join the server, talk a bit, and see if you like it enough to dedicate some spare time to moderate it. If you find you're interested, fill this out and we'll review it. https://tinyurl.com/r2adxhp

Bulletpoints! Don't like reading? Well, too bad -- but here's some bullet points to make it easy for you, pumpkin.

  • Bi-weekly schedule with optional notifications for events that you're interested in via bot-emoji integration
  • Observer role to replace all-clubs role for users who want to join more than the limit of 5 active clubs
  • Decapre is the new head of Team Clubs and he's doing great work. If you have questions, ask him... Or the bot. Up to you.
  • A boomer made a Twitter account for dog pictures. Here's a link: https://twitter.com/cc_eris
  • We NEED mods. Join the server. Be a good, active user, and apply. Seriously. We've grown. You've grown. We need you. You need us. Here's a link: https://tinyurl.com/r2adxhp
