    LotC Talkshow: Thoughts on 7.0 live! Sunday Oct. 14th

    I’m not in a position to answer those things. That’s why in this post I used different language for each of the options. If it just ends up being the Talkshow, we’ll be discussing and overviewing the information that’s already been made public. I won’t be answering questions I don’t know the answer to, those will have to be held off until we have an actual community meeting with senior staff members present

    LotC Talkshow: Thoughts on 7.0 live! Sunday Oct. 14th

    It’d just be me, and everyone else would be in Twitch chat discussing. Not gonna bring anyone on this short of notice as I can’t vet them in such a short time.

    LotC Talkshow: Thoughts on 7.0 live! Sunday Oct. 14th

    Oh god! Don’t strain yourself! hahaha. The community meeting in either case will be recorded, so those who can’t attend live will be able to listen/watch back at a later date.
  11. Hello, everyone! From the post I made a few days ago about our upcoming October community meeting, those of you that submitted votes indicated that tomorrow, Sunday October 14th, would be the best date for our meeting. Because the date was brought forward late (my fault!), the meeting tomorrow will happen in 1 of 2 ways: Tomorrow at 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern / 7pm GMT, everyone who would like to attend the community meeting will gather in the LotC Discord, entering the “Community Meeting” voice channel. LotC staff members will be present to divulge information, including answering questions that they can about 7.0, development updates, etc. Questions posted in the previous Community Meeting post and this post will be addressed first. In the case that many of our senior staff members will be unavailable, tomorrow’s community meeting will instead consist of the following: Tomorrow at 12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern / 7pm GMT, I will host the LotC Talkshow live on Twitch at twitch.tv/zacclay. I will personally discuss and overview the recent post unveiling 7.0, as well as discussing LotC with community members through Twitch chat. We’ll collate the community’s biggest questions and concerns and those will be what we address at the next community meeting! I’ll update you guys ASAP when I know the attendance of our other staff members. Either way, we’ll be discussing LotC news tomorrow, so it’s gonna be interesting! Feel free to leave any questions you would like to see addressed tomorrow as a reply to this post. Thanks everyone, and see you tomorrow! \\\ UPDATE: So it looks like we’re going for the easier Option 2 for tomorrow’s meeting. I’ll be streaming and we’ll be discussing 7.0 during the LotC Talkshow at twitch.tv/zacclay. Updates and broadcasts will be pinged tomorrow close to the start time (12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern / 7pm GMT). Thanks guys!

    Community Meeting Upcoming!

    Hello, everyone! It's been a while. I'm kicking our community protocol back into gear and organizing an LotC Community Meeting. This is a time for all active (and inactive!) members of the community to gather in our LotC Discord and listen to updates by our senior staff members, as well as get a chance to ask any of them questions directly. More details about how exactly that will work later! Right now I have two potential dates for our first October Community Meeting. Here are the options: • Sunday, October 14th, at 12:00pm Pacific / 3:00pm Eastern / 7:00pm GMT OR • Sunday, October 21st, at 12:00pm Pacific / 3:00pm Eastern / 7:00pm GMT I was informed that there may be an important server announcement within the next day or two, which could be very quickly discussed on the 14th, even though it's a bit of a shorter notice for the meeting date. There was a failure on my part to properly announce the date, so if this Sunday doesn't look like we have the numbers, we'll try for the following Sunday (the 21st). Please vote on which date (both, one, or neither) you would be able to attend. In Preparation... 1. Please fill out the poll attached to this post with whether or not you'll be able to attend both, one, or either dates, and look out for more community update posts in the near future. 2. If you have any questions for members of our staff team, or topics of discussion you would like brought up and addressed in the community meeting, then please leave those questions as a reply to this post. Questions left here will be addressed first in the community meeting, before questions asked in person. --- I also just made a post detailing the reasons for my recent inactivity, and a mentality that I think we should all be aware of. If you're curious, please check below to have a read! Thank you!

    Community Manager - Personal Anecdote

    Personal Anecdote – Server Community Manager life and stuff In our lives, sometimes these waves of work or stress roll in that make IRL a much larger priority for us. For this past month-and-a-half, the waves were really rolling in for me, and I found myself wishing I could clone myself so I could still be around to help make LotC a better place. But then I realized something about my mentality, and one of the reasons why I become so inactive on the internet sometimes. I. The Problem I often become so obsessed with maintaining high production quality in my work that if I can't manage to make something absolutely amazing, or say something absolutely amazing, or do something absolutely amazing, I should just save my energy and create, say, and do nothing at all. I've set such a high expectation for myself that it's easier to just do nothing than it is to attempt to reach the expectation! Those of us with this mentality tell ourselves, "Not creating at all is better than failing to create our best work." As IRL stuff piled on, this mentality was one of the factors that contributed my inactivity this past month too. I would tell myself, "Not being around for this community at all is better than failing to be the best I could be for this community." Despite its intention, this mentality is self-destructive, and easily traps a person in exactly that: a state of... just doing nothing at all. Often for extended periods of time! This is fairly common among artists, and honestly I think it's the part of my persona that holds me back the most. II. The Solution I think the new standard we should hold ourselves to is this – even when we don't have the inspiration to create or do or say something great, the moments when we're just feeling "okay" or even plain feeling bad or uninspired are still worth sharing. I believe it's a part of humanity, and we all go through it, and that alone makes it important. I'm saying all of this so that if anyone else out there finds themselves becoming inactive, or not creating or doing as much anymore because of this mentality, know that you could end up waiting forever for your best work, or your inspiration. When it comes, it comes, but when it isn't there, it's still just as important (if not more important) to continue creating, to continue doing, and continue putting yourself out there. You mean a lot more to your community than you might think – you guys really helped me realize this. --- So with or without the Community Manager tag, I want to continue doing what I had been doing to contribute to LotC. As I pick back up again, I intend to continuing streaming LotC, LotC Talkshows, and posting videos or discussions with all of you. Have a nice day, and see you on the flipside!
  14. I'll be streaming LotC in about 2 hrs!
