Taps microphone Is this thing on..? Good! Alright, it’s been a while since we’ve done an update here. I accept no responsibility for this oversight. Now that we’ve established who to blame (not me), let’s move on to what we’ve actually been up to since we last spoke. Over the past few months we’ve had a number of amazing AMAs, a bunch of server events, and made a number of changes! We’ll start listing stuff again in the next update, but for this one I just wanted to give an overview of what’s been happening, some of our plans for this month, and an annoyingly brief look at what we’re looking to do in the near future. Intro completed, moving on. Also this is a multi-part update. Deal with it.
EVENTS! I’m only gonna go over some of MY favorite events we hosted in the past few months, to avoid having to turn this into a 10-part miniseries. The first event I have to choose as my favorite (to avoid being whipped by the dictator-in-chief) is, OF COURSE, our SECOND ANNIVERSARY! February was a big month for us. We turned TWO!... We also had daily events for a week straight, alongside a vote for the server’s favorite Calliopean Champion -- or Calliopean Colossus (Ausfox, quite rightfully, won the cool new title.. Just don’t tell him I think he deserved it). We’re already planning our third year’s festivities, but WE’RE NOT SHARING… yet.
If you’ve seen our AMAs in the past, you’ll know we normally try to aim for scholars, intellectuals, authors, etc… Well, we branched out a bit since the last update. What do I mean by that? Weeeell… We had Joshua Dial from Tiger King, and Miltos Yerolemou from Game Of Thrones. I may be a bit biased, but they were pretty freakin cool. You can see those two and the rest of our AMAs on our YouTube channel (link is on the website, yo)... They’re all great, but those two really stood out for me personally.
We do events outside of AMAs, too! Our biggest and longest-running event we’ve had recently has been our FORMAL DEBATE TOURNAMENTS! We’re actually well into our second tournament as I write this out, but our first one was amazing and ended with Tayo clawing his way to victory over Astrea and 25 other competitors, just barely. We’re well into our SECOND DEBATE TOURNAMENT having just finished up our first round debates and working on the second with over 60 people (over doubling our first tournament’s participation btw). The winner is still well up in the air, but I definitely have a few favorites by now. JOIN US if you haven’t already, even if it’s only to see these debates. They’re oddly enjoyable to watch, especially with our spectator gallery text chat freaking out during the debates. Events Out.
WE'LL CONTINUE THIS ON PART 2 OF THE UPDATE, BECAUSE WE'RE HELLA CHARACTER LIMITED
