The Community. Our Community.
The SA Community can and will rise again.
Hey guys, Terra here..
For many of you, You probably don't know who I am, and that's okay... Just know that you are a part of this too.... You're a part of this Community, our Community. I've been away for a few months. I could blame it on College, yes, but Ultimately, I've been fighting this new site layout/direction like we're 2 fat kids fighting over a Mars Bar.
....So Imagine my surprise when Craig accounced that he was going to address the Community's concerns. Cycnical, yet anxious I made my way over.
What happened next blew my mind.
g1's from past and present flocked to the UStream chat. People I haven't talked to in ages, names and faces I had remembered over the years. We were all in the same situation. We might not have visited the site in ages, but we didn't give up on the Community. We still cared. I gotta say, It made me teary eyed. Against the odd's, eh?
The talk with Craig, Bryan and Jared was really positive. We addressed a lot of issues, faced some harsh truths and ultimately, gained some perspective. While I still have a LOT of issues, I think it was amazing. Im going to E-mail Jared, Bryan and Craig over the week giving them my Input. I was constantly reminded of the Community's Integrity. Seriously, it ain't worthless guys.
And then, just at the peak of my bliss, an Idea formed in my head.
NOW. For those who DO know me, you'll know that when i have an idea,,,, I don't stop. So be afraid. I'm not gonna give too much away, as I wanna make sure I can actually do this. It's gonna be big, huge. Im not even sure we can do it. But has that ever stopped us?
So, If you're interested in this "Project" I have going, I have one request. Send an E-mail to me: firstname.lastname@example.org . Many of you will be getting E-mails from me anyway's regarding this project. Give me your g1 name, and any other details you feel are nececary. I'll fill you in from there on. As always, i can be found on Twitter @Terra_corrupt .
Generate some hype about this guys. This could be the BIG BOOM that relights the Community to the glory days of old. RETWEET LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER!!!
This has been the best night of the year on ScrewAttack for me.

Well, in actuality I left for the same reasons people hate youtube and facebook: complete layout change. Anyways Terra, I missed the ustream, but I would be more than happy to help you with your project should you have any use for my help!
he is :D
Well I was looking to get more involved in the Community. I guess I could see what this is all about and if I can help in any way.
No kidding, Craig went on about how people who want to contribute more to SA and go the extra mile could join Advantage and we got passed over. Could it be that there are more Advantage members than we think? Maybe but I see a lot of the same people commenting on Advantage-only videos.
I guess I'll just shoot Craig a message asking what he talked about and if they plan on putting up the archived version (if one exists....)
The most I'll give away now (since many have had their e-mails sent to them by now) is that it will involve g1's past and present, people who were and are affiliated with the site in a big project that could take months.
I 100% agree with you, the least we can get is an archived version. I feel like a little bitch complaining over something that's not a big deal but this is honestly one of those rare moments when I'm kind of upset. I can't believe we didn't get to know about this, ESPECIALLY g1s like you and me who are a part of the Advantage Program and some of the strongest supporters of the site.
But hey, like I said, if there's anything we want to get out there we could always just e-mail Craig or the rest of the crew. I just hope the next time they do a similar "Hall Meeting" or whatever, that all g1s or at least the Advantage members will know about it.
Secret? Well, I don't need to know what the secret is......nope....don't....need...to- WHAT'S THE SECRET!!?!?!??!!?!?!??!?! *starts typing e-mail*
I don't suppose you could give us a teaser on it so those who say they're interested know what they're getting into, could you?
Also, what did they actually talk about in the stream?
Still seems like a cheap way to do it. Do they have the decency to put up an archived version of it for those of us who missed it? Doesn't seem so.
Well then it makes a whole lot of sense, I almost never visit the forums.
Red Button, standing by
I can't help but read this with your amazing accent in my head.
Y'know what? Terra Corrupt is one cool dude.
Not sure if I can help, but I'll send you an e-mail anyways.
That's what they all say
There was a Forum topic about discussing how to save the Community. Craig posted it there, and those who frequent the forums were able to know when and where
You've got a purty mouth...
I'm in! If it's a contest, or tournament, or event, or you need a kidney, I'm in! Emailing now....
Ok, I don't want to sound like a douche here but how did you and everyone else found out about this Ustream thing? I read that Craig didn't want it to be posted to the public but Brayn did it by accident on Twitter. Did the crew send out personal messages to a handful of selected g1s or what? In that case, I'm really sad that I didn't get to know about it since I would've loved to express my opinions. I also find it sad that g1s who haven't visited the site in years got invited while us g1s who've been checking the site daily over a couple of years didn't even know about it. I mean, wouldn't the people who visits New ScrewAttack every day have a better view of the situation than the old veterans who left the site in 2008 or whatever?
Either way, I guess I'm just a bit jealous. Of course they couldn't invite every g1 to be a part of this and if I want to express my opinions on the site, I could always just send an e-mail their way. I'm happy for the people who got invited to the Ustream chat and I hope you voiced some good opinions.
