Changes to #gaming

Well, it's sad to report this, but the Voat /v/gaming group has left Techtronix. Their reasoning for this is due to the recent allegations of doxing against me by River and "The Cabal", as well as my apparent tying of them into discussions related to this "doxing" nonsense. More on that in a bit.

What's Changed

  • The moderators of /v/gaming have abandoned the network
  • #gaming is now under the possession of Techtronix staff
  • Any "game nights" will now be funneled through the to-be-announced Techtronix gaming group, instead of /v/gaming

What Hasn't Changed

  • Channel will continue to function almost like normal
  • TeamSpeak will remain unaffected
I'm saddened by having to announce this sort of thing because I hate to see communities leave the network. As it is, the IRC world is full of networks, and not enough communities. Finding communities in itself has been a very difficult task so far, and as far as I am concerned, I've put community searching on the backburner for a bit as I continue to focus on other things. After all, almost all requests get either unanswered or rejected anyways.

I'm trying to keep the majority of the userbase in #Gaming from bouncing to another network because I truly think that Techtronix can move past this nonsense. Just because /v/gaming chose to leave on their own (unannounced), doesn't mean that Techtronix suddenly doesn't have a gaming channel.

Some excerpt from recent logs; that's all I really plan on posting.
10:06:38 AM <Techman> Well, like I said nobody talked to me10:06:57 AM <Techman> I can't do anything to improve your experience here if you can't tell me when there is a problem.10:07:01 AM <~Kadynce> Don't need your approval to leave. I wish you well with your IRC. Really10:07:10 AM <~Kadynce> It isnt anything to do with the IRC10:07:27 AM <~Kadynce> it was us being tagged in during drama that had nothing to do with /v/gaming. we did not appreciate it10:07:43 AM <~Kadynce> I'm sorry it worked out the way it did and I'm sure I'll see you around the other IRCs.
I do not facilitate IRC spam, and I will not give /v/gaming a free ride by gladly telling everyone else where to find them. Advertising another network in the channel topic is one of the most disrespectful things you can do to Techtronix.
