    My Fellow Members, As of this posting, the position of League of Legends Head Admin will be passed from MadCast: Epic to MadCast: Mike. Per our internal policies, Staff reached out to current LoL administration, and volunteers were brought into an interview with Staff. Mike stepped forward and outlined a vision for the branch that Staff agrees with, and we wish him well in his endeavors. The position of Head Admin is singular in MadCast. A head admin can be of any rank, from RFM to Staff. Head Admins take upon themselves the responsibility for the sustainability of the branch, and they are answerable to both the community and administration. Head admins have a responsibility to both the work that has come before and the needs of the future. Please wish MadCast: Mike the best in his undertakings.

    "Starting next year, Illinois public schools will be required by law to include LGBTQ history in their curriculums. On Friday, Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) signed House Bill 246, which mandates that the subject be taught as of July 1, 2020. The measure stipulates that students must study “the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State.” The bill also includes similar mandates for African American history and that of various other groups, including Polish, Irish, Italian, Hispanic and Asian Americans. In keeping with the bill’s objective of promoting a diverse and inclusive history curriculum, it requires that “events related to the forceful removal and illegal deportation of Mexican-American U.S. citizens during the Great Depression” be taught as well. After the bill passed the state Legislature in May, one of its co-sponsors, Democratic Sen. Heather Steans of Chicago, hailed it as “one of the best ways to overcome intolerance.” “It is my hope that teaching students about the valuable contributions LGBTQ individuals have made throughout history will create a safer environment with fewer incidents of harassment,” she said. “LGBTQ children and teenagers will also be able to gain new role models who share life experiences with them.” In a statement released Friday, Victor Salvo, Executive Director of the Legacy Project, a nonprofit LGBTQ advocacy group, called the measure a “life-saving law” that has placed the state “on the right side of history.” “To deny a child information that could give them hope, that could help them feel less alone, that could help them feel like they mattered ― while at the same time condemning them to hearing bigoted slurs in the hallways of their schools ― is a cruelty that every feeling adult has a responsibility to stop.” - Huffington Post CORRECTION: A previous version of this article mistakenly attributed quotes from Victor Salvo of the Legacy Project to Equality Illinois, another LGBTQ advocacy group. This is absolutely massive and wonderful news for the queer community. Educating today's youth about the past will only ensure a brighter future. It may only be one state, but I'm hoping that this is the ripple that radiates around the country.

    With the rotating games becoming a thing, I figured it was a good time to revisit Tera. Tera is a free to play MMORPG with action based combat, dodging and aiming skills, timing attacks and playing around ally's abilities. Got a few people who are interested and would like to toss it out there as an option for a monthly game. I would be more than willing to run it if it is chosen. If it isn't, but there is still sufficient interest, I will still set it up on my own, but wanted to put it up for consideration.

    So my latest venture into woodworking had me building a spice rack for my kitchen as I'm trying to learn to cook. I was going to just buy one off Amazon until I seen how much they are for just the cheap looking wood ones. I thought to myself, "Hey, I have tools and like to build stuff!". Thus began my attempt to make my own. The following is what it looked like at different steps from start to finish. I ended up basing it off the one I was going to buy from Amazon. I still spent less money building it than it would have been to buy the thing. Holy crap they are expensive. The rack I build can hold 21 glass jars of spices measuring 1.75" x 1.75" x 4". This thing was SO much fun to build and it really didn't take much time either. I spent about 4-6 hours a day for 6 days but most of that was time spent waiting for things to dry. The basic box: The basic design: The components after stain/lacquer is applied: And the final product with everything assembled, glued and backboard in place, with a wide shot of my kitchen sink / stove for size comparison:

    Baal I'd say you are a horrible person for suggesting leds but you didn't say rgb leds so it's ok. Lol As far as how much I saved: the ones I was looking at on Amazon were between 70 - 200 bucks for the size I went with. I put about 50-60 bucks into materials, stains, and lacquer. So I saved a good amount there. @MadCast: Epic Here you go @MadCast: Kitty Stark

    Something important.

    So Sometimes During league games, Some people Can attempt to give some advice to others e.g in events or so Like how in the first time i joined the server , for a League of learning night and i was up against craiden in lane I didnt sound aggressive And also did not try to make a voice tone that would make him feel bad or such At the end of every comment i made with him i would tell him :But over all you did well just need to fix up a thing or two and you'll be good to go But its really unsettling when someone who talks to you about something in game , like trying to review something or advice you or such And the way they say things might come up to be offensive Due to a few reasons like 1- Just throwing all of your words and 100% ignoring what the other person has to say or Thinks As in , The other person is not you! You may be a better player and see the game better than your enemy laner But He is not you and does not see it that way So before throwing everything at him , Maybe try to ask him : How did you see this or that happening? How did you think this match up would go? What did you think was best to do? Let the other person speak first 2-Then say :can i give my own opinion?, if they agree then still when you talk , say it like an actual advice Not as : IT HAS TO BE THIS WAY! OR THAT WAY! THERE'S NO OTHER WAY AROUND IT! Not only in league in other games as well If you deem people to do things the way you see it then ,you're killing their creativity because you're forcing something on them Yes some would say : they dont have to listen to what i say But some people have weak characteristics and personalities and submit to those who they think are better than them you gotta think of how some words come out of you If they'll hurt the person you're talking to or not If this person is cool with me speaking this way or not But you do not just randomly See something that someone else is doing , if they're doing it wrong you just try to force the right thing on them That is how sometimes in league you can help a team mate in league to actually do better if you just speak to them calmly and encourage them Sometimes even when playing with my own friends in the higher elo's of diamond+ i end up facing masters & grandmasters because of them But i manage to deal with it because my boys have known me for more than 5 years And they do not just throw words that they know will hurt me They'll eventually meme me and make jokes on me for being bad and such But they make sure not to pick words that hurt me hard , So imagine if thats how it is between people who know each other for years, How would you react when a Random person starts to randomly force you into things ingame When you're tilted/ Not having a good time because of lane match up or the enemy laner being higher elo "better???" also another example is... So imagine You're friends with a bronze player And you're at least... Gold or plat , somewhere in that range And you're playing with him and he is hurt because of playing against your elo that knows thing he/she cannot comprehend depends on who you are really.. to deal with that situation... Be Forceful , yell at them sometimes to do things right or try to slowly approach their way of playing and attempt to convince them that you can show them a way thats better if they'd like to try Its something i've dealt with personally because Not Every one is a great player You cannot expect a gold player to play as good as a plat 1-2 or diamond same for silver /etc And then proceed to throw all of your ideas of how things should be done Everyone starts somewhere And then slowly gets better , They do not just Suddenly become Great at the game or such Wellll dis is all i have 2 say for dis post See you all later , Also I'm sorry if this made some people feel targeted or such i'm not targeting anyone in specific i'm just commenting on this Because it is something that has been going on for a while And i do hope to just have put some ideas into people to Deal with this alot better? because its something i have not noticed for a LONG while .... But then i started to notice it again recently Within the past month or so! hope you all have a great weekend!! ❤️ Yours: [C]IzonKAiser

    Thanks for this great post. I would just like to add the Crisis Text Line for anyone who might find it easier to text than to call. They also urge anyone to call who is experiencing emotional pain of any kind- from anxiety to bullying to loneliness to suicide. Please reach out. Text Hello to 741741 from anywhere in the United States. Text Hello to 686868 in Canada Text Hello to 85258 in the UK. Also, you can reach someone via Facebook Messenger from the facebook.com/crisistextline page. Just hit 'Send Message." Here is the link for better instructions and more information: https://www.crisistextline.org/texting-in *I think they have more international numbers on their website.

    It's important to bring to light these darker more taboo subjects and openly discuss the signs, and the availability of help. Here at MadCast we have an excellent thread already by @MadCast: Kitty Stark Let's Talk About Mental Illness which can be used as a great resource for ailments that may be affecting the way you feel. There is also an existing thread for Community Outreach if you ever find yourself in a sticky situation and need help getting by. MadCast is a community of people who care and want to see you succeed in more facets than just gaming. I can personally attest to this, as I've had to ask for help before, and have been shown nothing but kindness and support. That being said, know that you always have people you can reach out to here in our community, or if you are in immediate need of help there is the crisis call line which can help in a myriad of ways, you don't have to be suicidal to call them. You can reach them at: 1-800-273-8255 If you are LGBT youth (under 25) and are in a crisis you can reach out to The Trevor Project. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. Their number is: 1-866-488-7386 "Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues. Each year, more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide, leaving behind their friends and family members to navigate the tragedy of loss. In many cases, friends and families affected by a suicide loss (often called “suicide loss survivors”) are left in the dark. Too often the feelings of shame and stigma prevent them from talking openly. September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month—a time to share resources and stories in an effort to shed light on this highly taboo and stigmatized topic. We use this month to reach out to those affected by suicide, raise awareness and connect individuals with suicidal ideation to treatment services. It is also important to ensure that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention." - National Alliance of Mental Illness Know the warning signs of suicidal behavior: Threats or comments about killing themselves, also known as suicidal ideation, can begin with seemingly harmless thoughts like “I wish I wasn’t here” but can become more overt and dangerous Increased alcohol and drug use Aggressive behavior Social withdrawal from friends, family and the community Dramatic mood swings Talking, writing or thinking about death Impulsive or reckless behavior Any person exhibiting these behaviors should get care immediately: Putting their affairs in order and giving away their possessions Saying goodbye to friends and family Mood shifts from despair to calm Planning, possibly by looking around to buy, steal or borrow the tools they need to complete suicide, such as a firearm or prescription medication Risk factors for suicide: Research has found that more than half of people (54%) who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition. A number of other things may put a person at risk of suicide, including: A family history of suicide. Substance abuse. Drugs and alcohol can result in mental highs and lows that exacerbate suicidal thoughts. Intoxication. More than one in three people who die from suicide are found to be currently under the influence. Access to firearms. A serious or chronic medical illness. Gender. Although more women than men attempt suicide, men are four times more likely to die by suicide. A history of trauma or abuse. Prolonged stress. Isolation. Age. People under age 24 or above age 65 are at a higher risk for suicide. A recent tragedy or loss. Agitation and sleep deprivation. It can be frightening and intimidating when a loved one reveals or shows signs of suicidal thoughts. However, not taking thoughts of suicide seriously can have a devastating outcome. If you think your friend or family member will hurt herself or someone else, call 911 immediately. There are a few ways to approach this situation. Remove means such as guns, knives or stockpiled pills Calmly ask simple and direct questions, such as “Can I help you call your psychiatrist?” rather than, “Would you rather I call your psychiatrist, your therapist or your case manager?” Talk openly and honestly about suicide. Don’t be afraid to ask questions such as “Are you having thoughts of suicide?” or “Do you have a plan for how you would kill yourself?” If there are multiple people, have one person speak at a time Ask what you can do to help Don’t argue, threaten or raise your voice Don’t debate whether suicide is right or wrong If your loved one asks for something, provide it, as long as the request is safe and reasonable If you are nervous, try not to fidget or pace If your loved one is having hallucinations or delusions, be gentle and sympathetic, but do not get in an argument about whether the delusions or hallucinations are real Even if your loved one isn't in a moment of crisis, you need to provide support. Let them know that they can talk with you about what they are going through. Make sure that you are actively and openly listening to the things they say. Instead of arguing with any negative statements that they make, try providing positive reinforcement. Active listening techniques such as reflecting feelings and summarizing thoughts can help your loved one feel heard and validated. Furthermore, reassuring your loved one that you are concerned for their well-being will encourage them to lean on you for support. One of the best things you can do if you know or suspect that your loved one is contemplating suicide is educate yourself. Learning about suicide, what the warning signs are, and how it can be prevented can help you understand what you need to do as a member of their support system. If possible, be prepared. If your friend or family member has had suicidal thoughts in the past, it's a good idea to have a crisis plan just in case. This means that you'll need to work together to develop the best course of action if a crisis situation should occur. "The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us." - Voltaire MadCast is a community we are all here for each other, if you ever need help please don't hesitate to reach out.

    I think Baal's got the right of it with letting kids be themselves, though you might ask him to explain why he doesn't want to go to girls parties. Maybe he thinks girls are groady (that will pass) or maybe it's external influence that is affecting him, like something one of his friends said. But another way I think parents can hinder or help their children is just with words they use. Kids listen to everything you say, and make assumptions based on that. For example, if you say- "Someday you'll meet a beautiful wife and get married!" vs "Someday you'll meet an amazing person and get married!" you send a slightly different message. I think most of these comments are based on habits that are hard to break, but you shouldn't feel bad about that. It's good if you catch yourself and say- "Someday you'll meet a beautiful wife and get married- or husband or anyone who loves you! I just want you to be happy, you know that?" Catching and correcting yourself will make your child pay more attention to what you are saying. In society we tend to define a lot of things based on relationships, which makes sense because humans are naturally relational for survival. However, taking the pressure off relationship status and focusing on positive messages about your child and what you want for them is a good way to go. "I want you to always have people who love you as much as I do in your life." vs statements about marriage, and not asking constantly if your child has a boyfriend or girlfriend yet (you'll notice other people start doing this by late elementary school probably) but rather: "Who do you like to spend time with? Why do you like to spend time with them?" can be more positive. Lastly, I would caution you that if you speak negatively about yourself or other people for something, your child will assume the same holds true for them. If you say: "I love you even when you're not perfect!" but you constantly criticize yourself for not being perfect, or ask a lot of questions about why something isn't perfect, or criticize your co-workers or other people's kids (or whoever) for not being perfect, your child will assume you are lying. The inverse also holds true, so comments like: "I'm so happy that such and such are able to get married now. You can really see how much they love each other, and it makes me sad that it's still illegal for them to get married in some countries." or w/e will send a positive message to your child that it is okay for them to love who they love because you will support them.

    Something that I want to address, joking about HIV/AIDS. It's something that as lighthearted as it seems, is something that plagues the queer community to this day. The false spreading of information on HIV/AIDS, and the fear mongering that the media pressed onto our community completely stripped our culture, and identity. "At the beginning of HIV epidemic, in many countries gay men and other men who have sex with men were frequently singled out for abuse as they were seen to be responsible for the transmission of HIV. Sensational reporting in the press, which became increasingly homophobic, fueled this view. Headlines such as “Alert over ‘gay plague’”, and “‘Gay plague’ may lead to blood ban on homosexuals” demonized the LGBT community." - Avert, 2018 It's a stigma that lives on to this day. It's something I hear consistent jokes about, it's also something that I highly recommend you refrain from using in your day to day. It's become tacky and tasteless. Using it as a mockery is outdated, immature, and impedes the progress that we've made as a society in the prevention, and eradication of HIV. "PrEP. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is when people at very high risk for HIV take daily medicine to prevent HIV. Studies have shown that PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV from sex by about 99% when taken daily. Among people who inject drugs, PrEP reduces the risk of getting HIV by at least 74% when taken daily." - The Center for Disease Control, August 6th, 2019 I want to emphasize that quote is from exactly two weeks ago from this posting. It's outstanding what modern medicine can do. PrEP is something that (especially within the queer community,) has become as common place as taking a daily vitamin. You see dating profiles with "HIV- on PrEP" or some other form of disclosure on their HIV status. Getting tested and knowing your status, as well as open communication with potential partners is the major battle for prevention, and eradication of this disease. You can regularly find community outreach centers for LGBT+ that will test you for free for HIV and other venereal diseases. "In a real-world study, many of those newly diagnosed with HIV had a chance to work with a healthcare provider to prevent HIV prior to their diagnoses. Nearly 2 out of 3 patients newly diagnosed with HIV had visited a healthcare facility at least once prior to diagnosis." - Truvada HCP, 2019 "Only 23% and 47% of sexually active men and women, respectively, report receiving a sexual risk assessment, despite visiting a healthcare provider in the past year." - Truvada HCP, 2019 Young adults continue to be the group at highest risk, (ages 20-29) which makes it so important for us to have this discussion. To fight the disease is to fight the old ways of looking at it. This conversation is something that's so commonplace within the queer community nowadays, and it's something I'm immensely proud of our community for. The information is so readily available to you, it's just a matter of seeking it out and learning more for yourself. Break the barrier, and start educating yourselves. Learn where you can get tested. Learn more about PrEP as prevention. As per always if you have any questions you want answered, you can ask them in this thread, or DM me on the forums or Discord. I'm be happy to answer them (to the best of my ability,) privately, or publicly (anonymously,) if you so choose. Spread information, not HIV.

    Chatter during explanations is a major pet peeve of mine, and many others have voiced similar complaints. It slows everything down and causes people who are actually listening to miss important information. When running an event, don't be afraid to tell people to clear comms. The group will be more upset about waiting for random commenter #7 to finish interrupting you than they will if someone gets cut off. Also, if it is your event, it is entirely on you to ensure it starts as smoothly as possible. Keeping comms clear when explaining/instructing the group is imperative. When attending an event, especially during set-up, if the person in charge lights up in Discord (or whatever VOIP you happen to be using) stop talking, full stop. It is exceedingly rare for your question/comment/joke/whatever being voiced during an explanation is more important than the entirety of the group trying to play in a reasonable amount of time. If it is something that you feel is important, it will still be important when they are done. Many questions are answered just by waiting and listening. Typing it out is also another solid option. There are times to joke around, during set-up is not, nor is it ever likely to be, one of those times.

    For new or old players, I have compiled a list of videos that I consider a "must watch". These videos continue to help me become a better player and will greatly help new players reach those higher ranks. First on the list is the "Why You Suck at Rocket League" series by Sunless Khan. This is by far my favorite Rocket League guide series. The next series is by Sir Timbers. This series is more on the science on Rocket League. Anther great series to help you understand and learn the tools to elevate your game play. Here are some more videos you can watch. A lot of these are more advanced, but will help with higher level game play. Kevpert Fluump Fluump #2 If you have any other videos or tips you would like to share please do!

    How to Trade. (Rocket league)

    If you don't know how to Trade then you've come to the right place! First what you wanna do is to want an end goal item for example a White octane. Second your gonna wanna look at the price of it first by going to : https://rl.insider.gg/pc Third go on:https://rocket-league.com/trading -the most top left box enter the item you want, on the top most right box you can select if you want a certain paint with that item, and the bottom left box if for the platform your gonna be trading on and that should be steam, and lastly the bottom middle box is for if you want this item and want to buy it or you have this item and want to sell it, and don't bother with the top middle box unless you have striker certification. 4th go through your inventory and sell all the junk you have to try and get as many keys as you can to get the end goal item. 5th make sure there not a scammer or if their going to waste your time because the usual scams are ( if your going for a white item before you click accept trade make sure it's still a white item and not a grey one) (if they have less then 850 hours don't even bother with your time.) (if your not sure if their gonna waste your time or not check their comments usually a trader with 850 hours has 2 or more pages of +reps) 6th trade the key amount the person wants for your item press the contact on steam button down below their trade and friend them message them what you have and what you want 7th invite them to a party and TRADE! If you have any questions just contact me on discord I'll be happy to help with any trades. -[C] Nimdar

    Thanks for posting about this important topic and sharing resources, DSO. I wanted to throw in a small tidbit related to this. Something I observed often from people in my circles (especially, but not only, from people of faith who believe suicide to be a sin) has been comments along the lines of: "How could they do this to their family?" or "If they could see how many lives they ruined, they wouldn't have done this." Understandably, when people are grieving they often experience anger. However, these kinds of shaming, judgmental comments can prevent people from asking for help. Having thoughts of suicide does not make you a bad person. It means something is wrong. It can be really hard if you're personally impacted by suicide, but try to keep this in mind when you talk about how it impacted you. You can talk about your own feelings without passing judgment on the person you lost. It could mean the difference between losing a friend or not.

    I was recently hospitalized and had to have surgery for my gall bladder and failing liver. I woke up one night in excruciating pain. I was doubled over and could barely move and knew something was wrong. I drove myself to the ER down the street and while being checked in, started to pass out from the pain. After spending a few days in the hospital and some tests it was determined my gall bladder was completely full of stones and no longer working and my liver was starting not to work. I had my gall bladder removed and they did a biopsy)?) of my liver to see how bad it was. I am recovering fine but have really had to change my diet. I am having a hard time trying to find things I can eat and make that do not contain dairy(I am lactose intolerant), no fat no sugar. Most of the time it's chicken and rice, but I would like to find ways to cook more foods so I am not making food for myself, then a separate meal for the other 6 people in the house.

    Humble Bundle

    I've gotten an incredible amount of games I've enjoyed from this bundle, as well as found some fun timesinks in the margins. You get 6 or more games every month, with one or two being big/well-known games people have definitely heard of at the very least. Last month I got Surviving Mars and Kingdom Come: Deliverance, plus 6 more games. At 12 bucks a month, you'll pretty much always get your monies worth just from the 6-12 month old major/popular releases they include in the bundle, not to mention the indie titles that might be perfect for you. Counting games I already owned (and therefore gifted out to friends, another wonderful benefit) I've gotten Tomb Raider 1 and 2, Sleeping Dogs, Total War: Warhammer, Hellblade, COD:BO3, Red Faction Gurellia, Assassins Creed: Origins, Vermentide 2, Yakuza 0, the Division, Metal Gear Solid 5, Dead Island, Darksiders 2, Dead Rising 4, Kerbal Space Program... the list goes on and on and on. I've saved a ton of money passing on a lot of games at release with the (usually correct) expectation that they will come out on Humble Bundle within the year. It's like waiting to redbox theater movies to save money, except you get to own a forever copy through Steam or GoG (when available) or directly through humble bundle's website (if the developer allows direct download). If you are a gamer who isn't dedicated 90%+ to a single game experience at a time (and if so, keep enjoying that mmo/moba/shooter/etc.) this is literally the best possible deal that has ever existed on this Earth, bar none. In other words,

    I played Pokémon GO the first week it came out and it was a very exciting game but in like a month it got repetitive so I went to my pc, and that's when I was hooked on Rocket league so I abandoned the game, I have been playing Pokémon GO actively in the last month or so, and I wanted to know if anyone else here plays it so that we can be friends on the game.

    Players may join the game with the up arrow reaction. The game will automatically timeout at any of those stages and cancel the game if options aren't selected in time or if people don't join in time. Once the number of players is reached, the game will start and the new reaction will be a Check mark, which will progress the game and allow the creator to pick the winner, blue or red. Once the winner is picked, depending on if it is Rocket League of League of Legends, voting and Points things will begin to happen. At the time of posting, there is only one leader board that both games are on. This is being remedied. There are also a few smaller bugs, but we will iron them out as we go. The command list found with !commandlist The [game code/code] is the game code found at the beginning of each game something like the #2b24aa found above.

    I think the important thing you are missing is priority. If your lanes are pushed up, they have some time to help you counterjungle, or at least be the first to arrive ahead of the enemy laner. Ganking depends on the jungler. I'm not going to complain when Shyv or Karthus hasn't ganked any lane 8 minutes into the game, but I would be unhappy if they haven't hit 6 yet. Showing your face in a lane without getting something for it isn't ideal, if you can position to be able to support without showing, it's a lot better, since you don't lose pressure on the other side of the map.

    Haha. Two many mafias. I'm definitely adding a bonus point where all 5 of you as a team (including your mafia) can try and come up with a consensus pick on who the mafia is on the enemy team. If you are correct as a team, you all get an extra point. --- Thinking about the idea of an anti mafia or something.

    Intro: IzonKAiser

    I have talked with Izon in pm's, therefore... You are now a candidate for Full Membership. When in Discord, please wear the [C] tag, as in [C] IzonKAiser. Additionally, you now have access to #candidates-chat. Please find a Candidate Coordinator on Discord (myself, @MadCast: Kitty Stark, or @MadCast: Mike) for a full introduction and initial question and answer session. In one month the Senior Full Members will vote on your membership. Should you pass, you will become a Full Member. You will then be required to wear the MadCast name tag, in your case, MadCast: Nimli. Should you fail, you may reapply and the candidacy period will begin again. A few tips for a successful candidacy: Familiarize yourself with the MadCast Code of Conduct everyone is expected to abide by. You can also check out New to MadCast section for more information! Be regularly active on the forums! Try to check it at least a few times per week and participate in topics that interest you. Share anything you find interesting, because odds are someone else will too! Forum activity is an important component of successful candidacies. Join our Discord Server! Even if you don’t or can’t use voice chat, you’re welcome to listen in. Playing games with members on our server is a good way for them to get to know you on a personal level. Attend events hosted by MadCast that have many people in one place that you can meet and leave a good impression on. Use the same username on the forums and Discord, as well as in-game, when possible. If you aren’t able to do this, make sure that the members you play with know who you are. They can’t leave comments on your thread if they don’t know which one is yours! Join the MadCast Public Group to make it easy for us to contact you, and for updates on Steam. If you have any issues you can contact one of our current admins. Feel free to post general questions regarding the candidacy process and community in the Discord #candidate-chat channel. Full Members will be able to satisfy most of your curiosities about the basics of being a part of MadCast. If you have questions regarding your candidacy or the process to become a Full Member, please attempt to contact current Full Members via #candidate-chat in Discord first. If your concern has to do with conduct or issues with another player, feel free to reach out to an admin.  Last but not least, the requirement for you to even be eligible to be voted on can be found here.

    Joe Rogan's podcast is good depending on the guest he has on. If you find the guest interesting then the whole podcast will be good. If not can be kind of boring. I also listen to the buffalo sabres and Bills podcasts from my hometown but i doubt that you will enjoy that.
