Community Update – June, 2019

So it’s that time of month again, the monthly community update that is. There’s a ton of changes and things to talk about this time around, so apologies in advance if this drags on a bit.

Okay so let’s get the big announcement out of the way first. In Elder Scrolls Online my main guild I am active in is Hearts of Ice, obligatory shout out, and last week I was promoted to an officer as a third in command of the guild’s trading faction. This means that I will be spending the majority of my time playing Elder Scrolls Online when I’m not busy doing other things. Overall I am looking forward to this and will be working out how to balance this promotion with doing my other content, speaking of.

So there have been a lack of streams recently, this is partly because of the aforementioned time sink that is ESO now, and partly due to a lack of Ethernet cables. The issue with this is I would be playing the game on unstable Wifi and personally don’t want to produce streams where I’m just getting frustrated at the game when it drops connection, or plays at 400+ ping. So while I work out getting a router and cables to split my Ethernet connection to my room so both my laptop using OBS and my desktop playing the game can have a reliable connection I am going to stick to video content for now.

Okay so the big news and the sad news out of the way let’s talk about changes to the website. I’ve recently been working on website content and features, and while I don’t want to spoil too much I am happy to announce that we now have Patreon support on the website. You should now be able to sign into the website using Patreon and if you are a patron you will have access to any content that is available for your pledge tier. There’s also some other features of this plugin that I am looking at for ideas for future project sub domains, but again, don’t want to spoil too much right now. I do have plans to add other social media login options, but for now Patreon is the only method to login to the website.

And to wrap this up I just want to cover some of the minecraft, discord, and other things. I am not sure what my stance is on playing minecraft at the moment, as I said above I’m really trying to advance in ESO and that’s eating most of my free time right now. As for the community discord not much is changing except that I will be cleaning up the channels and adding some new ones for upcoming content and such.

Sorry if this was a bit long but May was a busy month, especially in the last couple weeks and thank you for reading,
