  1. Enzee, it's been nice chatting with you in the PoE channels the last few nights. As you saw, there is really no downside to applying if you like what you see and want to be part of the community. On the other hand, you are welcome to stay and play with us for as long as you like so long as you observe the Code of Conduct, so there is no pressure to apply if you're not ready or interested at this time. I hope you will meet more people and have fun over the coming days! Our Townhall is a good place to connect with other members and hear about interesting goings on in the community, from Tabletop games to meetups to new releases. That'll be coming up on the first Monday evening of October if you feel you need to meet more members for your candidacy.
  2. Staff is pleased to announce that @MadCast: Shattered has been appointed to the newly created position of Rocket League Head Admin. This is the first appointment of a Head Admin for Rocket League, marking an important transition in the game's tenure within MadCast. A Head Admin is responsible for architecting the vision for a game branch, for abstract decisions about a game branch's culture and purpose within MadCast, and for the long term health of a game over time. A Head Admin appointment is more than recognition of an individual's commitment; it is recognition of the community's commitment to making a game successful. For those of you who are not familiar with Head Admin selection, the process is as follows: Staff will identify the need for a Head Admin. Staff will interview candidates in declining hierarchical order. (Staff > ESFM > SFM > RFM) FM Head Admins can be considered in extreme circumstance, to be determined by Staff. After all Candidates are interviewed, Staff will appoint a Head Admin. Since becoming an admin eighteen months ago, Shattered has been focused on Rocket League. He has outlined a compelling vision to Staff for growing Rocket League's competitive community within MadCast, building on past tournaments and competitive teams. His commitment to thoughtful recruiting has resulted in a positive and welcoming environment, despite the highly competitive level of play within the branch- a difficult balance to strike. Staff is excited to see Rocket League's continued growth under his leadership. Please join Staff in offering Shattered your support and congratulations.
  3. I think you've missed the point. The assertion is that the motivations for Straight Pride parades demean the idea of Gay Pride. It's put forth as a response to Gay Pride by people who are at best dismissive and unconcerned with the oppression queer people have faced and continue to face. At worst, Straight Pride activities are conducted to actively threaten and disrespect the queer community by insecure and small minded people. To further explain the point, someone who thinks that White History month demeans Black History Month would be unlikely to claim that Black History Month demeans Native American Heritage Month. That is because for a long time, both Black and Native American persons have been systematically abused and erased from American history, except as monolithic racial groups in relation to the predominately white cast on center stage. The purpose of having these months is to bring awareness to injustice, acknowledge and educate about individuals and cultures that contributed to the country we are today, and to provide children (especially) with positive role models whom they can identify with. The purpose of White History month is to make a mockery of other history months.
  4. I downloaded the game and messed around on my own a bit to get a feel for things and ensure everything runs smoothly. Given I was just messing around I took whatever skills seemed interesting and did not optimize at all. Can you link to any good leveling/build guides that I can take a look at ahead of time, so I can plot out whatever the hell I'm going to do?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Hi Lizzie! Welcome to MadCast! I also am a big solo game player lately (Stardew Valley, Rimworld, Oxygen Not Included, Slime Rancher, etc), but I also play Heroes of the Storm, League, and even some Destiny 2 with friends. I am terrrrrrible at PvP, but I would join you for PvE stuff. I'm not super focused on efficient grinding, but I like running around shooting stuff and "helping". If you are interested in company while playing a single player game, a lot of people post up in the Other Games section in a Chill channel or something similar.
