Server Change Log – 1/24/19

It’s been a while since we’ve done a normal server change-log, so here are a few changes we’ve made recently! Prepare for MAXIMUM UPGRADES. Or minimal. A few. Something in that range.

New Channels

  • #affiliated-community has been added to replace #entrance-hall’s “Resources” section. It is aimed to organize PAX-related community resources.
  • #lfg-channel has been added for users to have a centralized place to easily find other users to game with. (Note: you will need to have a game role to see this channel.)
  • #speedrun-games has been added for discussion and media sharing around speedruns.
  • #pax-community-feeds has been added as another resource to locate up-to-date information about other PAX-related communities.

Removed Channels

  • Event-specific voice channels have been removed due to lack of use.

Channel Categories and Organization

  • #gaming-lounge and #tabletop-lounge have been renamed to #video-games and #tabletop-games and have been added to their own “Gaming” category.
  • #speedrun-games and #lfg-channel have been added to the new “Gaming” category.
  • #community-social has been renamed #pcd-social-media and moved into the “PAX Feeds” category.
  • #pax-community-feeds has been added to the “PAX Feeds” category.
  • #cosplay-lounge has been renamed to just #cosplay.
  • #suggestions has been renamed to #pcd-suggestions for clarity.
  • Voice channels have been moved down.

PAX East is soon!
As most of you probably know, PAX East is only about 2 months away. Don’t forget to reserve your community badge and/or pins in our merch section. We look forward to seeing everyone in Boston! We’ll have some exclusive East stuff to show soon so stay tuned!

Get Ready for PAX South!

Woo! It’s been a while, with the holidays and such, but we’re back at it, getting ready for PAX South 2019! Let’s go through all the updates we missed!

PAX South Badges and Pins

We announced our newest look for the PCD Community Badges. Did you miss it? Here’s an image to get you hyped up for it!

We’ve already closed our badge forms for South, but we’ll reopen them shortly so you can start getting hyped for East! For those who ordered your south badge, we can’t wait to show them off to you! South will also be getting our new, flashy, redesigned pins as well! These pins were first featured at West, and we’re excited to bring them to South and East! The form for the pins will stay open through to East, so make sure you get your orders in! Check out https://paxter.gg/merch to get you pin ordered!

Speaking of, you might be wondering how to get your fancy new PCD stuff! Fret not! A few days before PAX South officially starts, you’ll see a brand new channel where we’ll make regular announcements of where you can find us for your merch! Once you’ve picked them up, you can use a handy function to get your butt out of the channel and back to enjoying San Antonio! If you’d like to continually hunt us down for fun, though, feel free to not leave and just hang out for our messages! We’ll be all over the place.

Some Server Updates for You

Did you know? We hosted our first ever Overwatch Tourney, and had a lot of fun playing for the day! Our winner, BugCatcherMookie, snagged the title and some loot! But we weren’t done, yet. During the holidays, we were throwing out all kinds of goodies, like codes for games, Discord Nitro, and even a PCD Pin! Stick around, and we’ll keep throwing out more awesome stuff!

We’ll also be hosting a Super Smash Brothers Ultimate Tourney! Make sure you get signed up, even just for fun! The winner will be getting a $25 Amazon gift card, so get to signing up. Tourney will be on February 2nd.

Social Media

In prep for South, we did a PAX South Prep Stream with our pal Zerzhul! We got to chat about what you should bring, what to expect, and what to have fun at while in San Antonio! Did you miss the stream? No problem! You can check it out, uploaded on our YouTube channel!

Welp! That’s all we got time for in this update. See you in San Antonio, gang!
