  1. A New Recruit accidentally put you as his recruiter. Not sure how regularly you check the site these days with all your other life activities so I just wanted to give you a heads up on here. We'll need you to reject his application so we can change the name of his new account back to the username he wanted.

  2. Closed on our first house this week! It's a new build. They break ground next week. Very exciting 🙂

      Well then. Guess it happened. 😛

      Congrats to you both. We should celebrate with drinks and rocket league sometime.

    Artist work for Streams

    Thank you sir. At the moment there is a lot of work being done. When the dust settles a bit, I’ll have a better idea of what exactly we need.

    It’s cause I came back isn’t it? I knew it!

    Artist work for Streams

    Like I said, I have been really busy. The little time I have has been very focused on what I deem most important but I assure you that I have worked very hard the last week to move things along. I don't raid random people (with rare exception-see note below). I raid 1 person at the end of each stream and the person I raid is usually very calculated. They are scouted ahead of time. Many of them are acquaintances that I have built a relationship with over time. Sometimes they are people whom I think are going to big time and I want to support them. Sometimes they are people who did work for me in the past, sometimes they are people who really help our community or maybe they are just someone who has raided me in the past and I owe em one. I almost always know their games and their schedule as to not raid someone when they go offline. I think raids are immensely important and take special care as to not squander a great opportunity. I've already got a short list of preferred victims for Sunday's raid. Going back to the 'exception' I was talking about above - occasionally I will raid with a group based on the advice of people I trust. Group raids are amazing experiences as well and are filled with opportunity. I'm glad that I was able to do that for you. My response to this whole thing has been somewhat slow and I apologize. I feel I could have stopped (some) of the bloodshed but part of the agreement about my return was to avoid the brunt of the political side of OD that I was completely anchored in previously. I enjoyed it, I believe I was good at it, but with my limited time, it was not something I wished to pursue any further. Tis' why I came back at a significantly lower rank then what the rules suggested I return at. However, in this situation, I probably should of said something sooner. That being said, I had not seen your previous response to purplez when I initially posted and now I am forced to get put my face on the tee and talk about it since it will be my second post with no other admins posting here yet and I cant just ignore it. I don't want to make a big deal out of this but I have to talk about it. I believe Terra did a brilliant job with her initial post and summed up everything that was done wrong (or at the least how it was perceived as wrong which is just as important). I urge the rest of the admins to relax a bit. Terra did what was required. We don't need to pile on. On the other hand, Jester, you did so brilliantly with your initial reaction, please try to understand people have similar opinions as Terra too and they clearly also wanted to share them (which they are entitled to as you invited them). Don't let your frustrations with Terra cause you to lash out at others who are legitimately also trying to be helpful.

    I am back

    To be honest that's one of the drawbacks of this venture. I feel like I have pretty good rapport in the community and left on really solid terms. There is a risk in this venture. If I fail hard, it would be a terrible turn to my reputation and would be a sad way to then re-exit the clan. I do appreciate your kind words though, thank you. Raged/Purplez thank you for the warm welcome back :). Collin, you did not ;).

    Artist work for Streams

    There has obviously been a little bloodshed here and there and I don't want to really expand on any of those things particularly as I have a lot of respect to those involved and don't feel that this late in the game that I can really bring much of value on those particular subjects. I feel there might be some things that may of been taken/presented poorly but it's my belief that everyone here has OD best interest at heart. Because I do not wish to dwell on what has been specifically debated here, I will only be commenting on the things that I felt personally tied into. Jester, it saddens me to think that other streamers feel this way. I really hope that this is not the way people are reading into this. I know you mentioned it as 'being excited' but I don't like the idea that 'streamers were just swept under the rug until now.' In my 7 years in OD, not once did a streamer suggest anything to me like what I have proposed to OD in the last couple weeks. If this was proposed to any other person in leadership and it was 'swept under the rug' I am deeply apologetic to whomever that was and hope that they are still here to cap on any type of opportunity they may get in the near future. I just want you to hear my side of the story first hand. I was approached by 2 different streaming communities (large and successful ones where they have partners to help you and artists to do all your art for you for free) and was really close to accepting but realized that I really liked making connections on Twitch and already had a lot of good connections of people I wanted to help and support. I didn't want to blindly follow their rules and support their team. I wanted to support my family in OD and the streamers I had already made friends with. I approached OD leadership saying that I think that we could go center stage as a community but I needed their help to get there. If we (Linds and I) got shoved center stage my thought process was that OD could finally get the center-stage attention they deserve and really take it to the next level. Admittedly, Lindsey and I would be the benefactors of this attention as well and if that comes off as greedy or anything of that sort, I would understand it. You mentioned of thinking of Twitch as a business. Perhaps, it would make more sense if you think of me trying to build my twitch resume for 7 years in this community where I recruited most of my 77 recruits off of other sites similar to twitch (Team Liquid to be exact). I'll be 100% honest here and since you don't know me, I doubt you will trust me on this one but if I thought there was another streamer in OD (right now) that would have a better chance of putting in the work whilst representing OD to the degree in which it wishes to be represented, I would move out of the way, push them in front of me in hopes of them taking OD to the next level. Perhaps in the process of calling streamers to arms as well as expanding our streaming community, we will find those people to take us there. My goal is to get OD's name in the spotlight and I think Twitch is a great place to do that. If people raid (as an Overdosed gaming member) you're appealing to not only streamers (cause who wouldn't want that type of support as a streamer) but also the viewers in that stream. I'm not really sure what you're saying about every half hour, I think there was some sort of disconnect in communication. The goal was that this Sunday, Linds and I would be streaming an OD only event (aka only OD members could participate in games). We would be playing Rocket league instead of PUBG (a more popular OD game). We would be inviting everyone out so we could raid someone at the end of that stream in hopes of getting OD's name out. On our first raid, I drew 3 people into having interest in OD and we only had like 3 OD members (and we raided a small stream since we didn't have that many people). Expanding our Streamer team in OD would also be one of our goals and this is a good way to do it. Once we get a better idea of the streamers in OD and who takes it seriously, we can support them as well. I don't think you were trying to put anything I am doing in a bad light. The only part that felt kinda crappy (in terms of my goals) was the first thing I quoted you on and I don't think you intentionally were trying to do that so for that, I don't think you owe me an apology. There were other parts that I didn't particularly like in your approach but you apologized about them and admitted your approach could be better so for that, we are good in my book. I followed your stream. I will have to check you out sometime but things are just crazy right now. Bachelor party this weekend, getting married next month and we keep a pretty tight stream schedule. Makes it difficult to even communicate the things I need help with sometimes :-\. Things will slow down though after the wedding/honeymoon.

    I am back

    Hello all. For those who don't know me, I am Tristan. I was a member of OD for 7 years. 5 of those years I was a commander in OD. In January I resigned my position for a litany of reasons. One of the main reasons was the I was engaged and OD was taking up too much of my time. OD was my hobby and took too much time away from my fiance (we get married next month). However, in the time off, my fiance and I have started streaming together. It has become a joint hobby of ours. We are now rejoining OD as a team and OD is no longer my thing but our thing. I will no longer be on the political stages of OD but instead focusing on being a Twitch Ambassador for OD and hopefully help push OD center stage on one of the fastest growing gaming networks out there! There will be lots of information shared regarding our Twitch under the streaming sub forum! Thank you to all who have been giving me the warm welcomes and it's good to be back :).
  11. Lindsey and I are starting a duo gaming stream As of right now, we are only streaming from my computer but are playing together and have two cams. Anyhow, I digress. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to help us with some cool custom overlays. We have found some pretty cool default ones we can give as references but they all have very specific things that we have no use for and are frankly just not ideal. Furthermore, on the details portion of the stream (About us, Schedule etc etc) we want pictures (panel headers) that have the same scheme as the Stream Templates. Right now, we just have pictures that we pulled out of a word document and they just clash big time. Also, Lindsey and I are willing to give some financial incentive depending on the timeliness and quality of the work. Our goal is to go 'official' next tuesday (the 10th). We can get by with the templates we have now, they are just not ideal. If you are serious about helping me, feel free to visit our stream https://www.twitch.tv/trisandlinds. We will be streaming most of the evenings still getting things worked out and we can show you the current schemes that we have been a fan of. Thank you for your time in advance.

    Ghost, thank you for that. I still think back very fondly on all the stuff we worked on together. Some things more savory then others. Keep in touch my friend. Thank you for the support, sir. I will check in from time to time. Like today :)

    Interesting? I hope that is a good thing ;). Thank you for the support. I appreciate what you have done for the community and am excited to see where it will go with future leaders such as yourself. Thank you, Ian. I appreciate that. Cards Against Humanity was fun. I drank a bit too much :). I will stop by eventually. Thank you for the support. Thank you Sassy. I appreciate that. Lol. You might have to change the bulb a time or two in my absence. I am glad you're back. I did miss you while you were gone despite being pretty distraught over it. Rob, it means a lot to me that you came back and showed your support. I am proud of the steps that you took when you made your run at Commander. A year prior to that, you would not of been seriously considered for the position. You really improved a lot and to think I may of played a small part of that, makes me happy. However, I am even more proud of the steps you have made since leaving OD. Keep up the good work my friend and you come find me if you ever need anything. Bartender, I appreciate you coming back and showing your support as well. I have been pretty hard on you from time to time and it means a lot that you didn't let that tarnish any type of rapport we had with each other and you understood where I was coming from. Ammunition, thank you for the support as well. My vacancy will give way to other people to rise up the occasion. I am optimistic about this. Thank you for the support, Ganker. Best of luck to you in the future. Thanks for the support gentlemen. I am glad I was able to serve you proudly. I wish you both the best in the future to come. Thanks for the support. I am optimistic with the people I leave this clan with. Then there is people like you who care enough to pour your time and thought into the evaluations when you're still such a new member. This clan is headed in the right direction. Thank you for taking the time to come out and post.

    Sunset, you are absolutely right. OD has taught me how to be a leader and it has positively impacted me in many aspects of my life. On the other hand, it would be really interesting to see the alternate universe of OD in which I never existed and compare. Thank you for sharing your insight and inspirational words. Thank you for bringing me to OD. Keep in touch.
