New Website, Same Mission

Hey folks,

If you’ve been to the site before, you’re likely a bit shocked by this visit.  Maybe it went something like: window.onload = function() {alert(‘WHAA?!’)}.

Ha, that’s a javascript joke for you. You’re welcome.

Anyhoo. More than just a cosmetic facelift, the entire site was rebuilt from the ground up, line-for-line, script-for-script. The new site will better accommodate our expanding organization and efforts, and is also much more secure, mobile-friendly, and fast.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we launched the new site a bit preemptively. Think of it this way: the new site is cookies that were supposed to bake for 14 minutes, but were taken out at 10. They’re still delicious, but prone to making a mess if you’re not careful with them. And also delicious.

So, our request to you: if you spot a bug in our cookie (gross), or something isn’t working right in your particular oven (browser), please let us know. Facebook is great, Twitter is better, but you can always email if that sort of thing is your thing (like sugar cookies).

We’ll be working hard on our end to build out the few remaining components of the site and getting all these cookies okay this metaphor is over.

Thanks thanks thanks!

The Pledge:

As a gamer, I realize I contribute to an incredibly diverse social network of gamers around the world, and that my actions have the ability to impact others. In effort to make a positive impact, and to create a community that is welcoming to all, I pledge to not use bigoted language while gaming, online and otherwise.

Bigoted language includes, but is not limited to, slurs based on race? (e.g, "chink," "nigger," "wetback"), ethnicity? (e.g., "kyke," "polock"), gender? (e.g., "cunt," "bitch," "tranny"), religion? (e.g., "dirty jew," "papist"), sexual orientation? (e.g., "gay," "fag[got]," "dyke"), and disability? (e.g., "retard[ed]").
