We're Doing These Again! (Part 1)

Taps microphone Is this thing on..? Good! Alright, it’s been a while since we’ve done an update here. I accept no responsibility for this oversight. Now that we’ve established who to blame (not me), let’s move on to what we’ve actually been up to since we last spoke. Over the past few months we’ve had a number of amazing AMAs, a bunch of server events, and made a number of changes! We’ll start listing stuff again in the next update, but for this one I just wanted to give an overview of what’s been happening, some of our plans for this month, and an annoyingly brief look at what we’re looking to do in the near future. Intro completed, moving on. Also this is a multi-part update. Deal with it.

EVENTS! I’m only gonna go over some of MY favorite events we hosted in the past few months, to avoid having to turn this into a 10-part miniseries. The first event I have to choose as my favorite (to avoid being whipped by the dictator-in-chief) is, OF COURSE, our SECOND ANNIVERSARY! February was a big month for us. We turned TWO!... We also had daily events for a week straight, alongside a vote for the server’s favorite Calliopean Champion -- or Calliopean Colossus (Ausfox, quite rightfully, won the cool new title.. Just don’t tell him I think he deserved it). We’re already planning our third year’s festivities, but WE’RE NOT SHARING… yet.

If you’ve seen our AMAs in the past, you’ll know we normally try to aim for scholars, intellectuals, authors, etc… Well, we branched out a bit since the last update. What do I mean by that? Weeeell… We had Joshua Dial from Tiger King, and Miltos Yerolemou from Game Of Thrones. I may be a bit biased, but they were pretty freakin cool. You can see those two and the rest of our AMAs on our YouTube channel (link is on the website, yo)... They’re all great, but those two really stood out for me personally.

We do events outside of AMAs, too! Our biggest and longest-running event we’ve had recently has been our FORMAL DEBATE TOURNAMENTS! We’re actually well into our second tournament as I write this out, but our first one was amazing and ended with Tayo clawing his way to victory over Astrea and 25 other competitors, just barely. We’re well into our SECOND DEBATE TOURNAMENT having just finished up our first round debates and working on the second with over 60 people (over doubling our first tournament’s participation btw). The winner is still well up in the air, but I definitely have a few favorites by now. JOIN US if you haven’t already, even if it’s only to see these debates. They’re oddly enjoyable to watch, especially with our spectator gallery text chat freaking out during the debates. Events Out.

WE'LL CONTINUE THIS ON PART 2 OF THE UPDATE, BECAUSE WE'RE HELLA CHARACTER LIMITED

We're Doing These Again! (Part 2)

Welcome to Part 2 of the EPIC "we're done forgetting to write these so we made someone else do them" update!

CHANGES! I did promise we’d talk about some of the basic changes we made too, so let’s go over those all quick-like. OUR WEBSITE LOOKS PRETTY NOW! Our glorious leader went and changed our entire colour scheme recently and, shockingly, it's an improvement! The link is on the sidebar. Look at it. I like it. You’ll like it. We’ll both like it. Beyond our website changing colours and going through some ch-ch-changes, we also TOTALLY REORGANIZED OUR CHANNELS and now they’re pretty too. Good for them! Seriously, though, it looks really good now. Check it out. Oh, I saved the best for last, by the way. We totally AUTOMATED our INITIATION SYSTEM. Our old system of having mods manually accept applications became an issue with the ever-increasing volume of applicants. As such, we convinced the Calliopean Bot to take over and deal with it so we can go back to being lazy. It’s actually been incredibly effective. We have a nauseating amount of statistics showing how amazing the bot is at doing our jobs for us and it confirms that she’s better than us in every way. We should probably just give the bot Calliopean Champion if I’m being honest. She deserves it.

Lastly, and I’m not going to go into detail about this one as we’re still finalizing some things, but we made some sweeping changes to our SUB CLUB system to improve not only server navigation, but to improve the quality and overall activity of our Sub Clubs and the server as a whole. We’ll have a more detailed breakdown of the changes, what it affected, and our plans moving forward in the next update (next month).

Second Lastly, WE NEED MODS! With the massive influx of users we’ve seen in the past few months we’ve never needed mods more than we do now. That means YOU, our beautiful text-chatters, and YOU, our voice-bois (and girls, obviously… I just liked the way that sounded). We need people who understand our mission, community, and how to remain impartial. If you think you fit the description and want to help CALLIOPEAN CLUB thrive, go to our website linked on the sidebar. We’re always reading the applications and we’re always watching for active people who we feel could make a great addition to the team.

And that’s all I’ve got to say about that… Until next month where I get forced to do another one of these. Woo! Skipples out.
