Okay, so after many excuses and delays here's an entry. I've been learning opera singing for only the past couple years, so I'm faaaarrr from the pros haha. I finally managed to carve out an hour today, so this is a pretty quick couple takes with a reverb thrown on it. It's rough, but it's a thing I did.

RE: Fateserenity "Failure to adapt" ban appeal
There were two primary reasons for this ban:
Stolen Valor - Serenity claimed to be an O3 Major in the US military (O3 is captain by the way). Also claimed to have been awarded the silver star and was up for the medal of honor. After data diving there is no record of any of this; Silver star and MOH nominees are a matter of public service record.
Twitch Botting - Serenity violated Twitch and LnT TOS by using bots to up his viewer counts on twitch. Many of our streamers are doing a great job by doing it properly and fairly. We DO NOT support cheating in any way.
There are much deeper root issues that go into this that offended a lot of LnT members and veterans. We as a community promote and support our veterans for their service and sacrifice to their nation, not just the US. Our 'code of conduct' is loosely worded to allow leeway and ability to be coached to fit into the community. Even after catching Serenity lying multiple times about his time in the service and violating twitch TOS he continued to dig his grave. We gave many opportunities for him to come clean and straighten out. With over 2 weeks of deliberation and coaching we have decided that he is not a fit for our community and has been removed.
Happy New Year!
From all of us at the Leave No Trace family we extend to you a great thanks and wish you all a happy new year!
This community was founded over a year ago, and yet it wasn't until around this time last year that it began to take the shape of what we've come to know and love. We have grown from only a few members to a worldwide community of hundreds of likeminded gamers.
I can only hope to continue our success into the new year and can't wait to find new games to play with everyone. Best wishes to you and yours.
RE: Using Discord in LnT
If I read your description correctly @Rafael09ED it sounds like PA uses the message board functions of Discord and the voice chat functions of Teamspeak. What I'm not clear on is if they also have a forum board.
I've heard multiple people recommend Discord over Teamspeak for all our functions, and talking with hookey for a bit it sounds like the amount of infrastructure we build in with ranks and selective permissions is something Discord just can't do (yet). This doesn't sound like it's what you're recommending though.
What it sounds like you're recommending is Discord's text chat function, kind of like an open chat box that serves as a super-casual general discussion forum. While I'm not opposed to more ways to communicate, I'm worried about adding a third place to check for LnT information. If we were to implement it then it would have to be with a clear understanding that the forums are for anything official, and there would only be certain people that use it.
I welcome the discussion though. @Hoen, you're a hipster; what do you think about this newfangled techmology?
RE: Siegrs.gg - New site for recruitment?
Way to be quick about it. Well done.
The one thing I think is wonky is the "rank". How the hell do we have a community with only one rank? I think diamond might be the right choice for now because it's going to get people to click on us, and it's certainly a true statement for some of our members!
What I think may be warranted though is to customize the writeup for this site with a disclaimer about no required skill level, we welcome anyone of all abilities, etc. etc. and put it near the top of our blurb. I'll leave the wordsmithing to you @Mr-Wonderful
