|April Newsletter||Apr 08, 2019||Delinson|
It isn't often that I sit down and write the newsletter, however with the amount of changes to the website I would like to sit down and tell you all the new features that have been brought to the website.
Language Selection, each user is now allowed to select a language that we have had translated to work with "most" of the site. I am working on getting it to work with all of the site, but this will take some time.
Editable, every part of the page is now editable by anyone in the admin/moderator team, what this means is when something needs to be updated they do not need to wait for me.
Whitelisting, whitelisting should now be automatic, whenever you whitelist on the server it will whitelist you to all our servers that have whitelisting (this is still in testing).
Content Creators, I decided after messing with everyone elses API for Twitch to write my own, these are now stored in the database and the API is ran every 5 minutes to check online/offline time and other information, thus lowering load times.
Gamedays/Events, as said before everything is editable, it is now possible for admins/mods to edit/delete/add gamedays and events.
Backend, security updates, 2 factor authentication (will be enabled soon for people to use), database security. A lot more backend changes that make it way too much to list, we'd have an 8 page newsletter.
While I'd like to take credit for all of these changes on my own, I cannot, last year I started working with a team that is working on a great backend called Userspice, this is what we use for our backend and the team over at Userspice has been working hard on all of these changes and we will continue to do so with many communities in mind, not just this one. However most of the changes are tested here first, and then they are sent out to the masses.
Couple of more things I would like to touch base on with everything, as everyone is aware The Division 2 has come out and a lot of us have been very busy in that, with the new clan (which as of writing this is level 17 of 30). We do a lot of things as a clan and try to do everything on challenging, as some of us found out last night if we do it on heroic and you die you end up back at the beginning, that was no fun, but we have had a lot of fun. If you would like to join us in the game and in the clan, just let myself or Max know and we will add you to the clan.
Next lets talk about the t-shirts, we know a lot of you have been looking forward to the shirts, we have too! However due to complications with manufacturers and distributors, we are currently in search of new options to get these made and available for all of you. So please stay tuned and we will update you as we have updates ourselves.
Now I'd like to touch on game servers, there are quiet a few games out there that we could have private servers for, however since I am not 100% sure what everyone is playing now a days we have slowed down a little with private servers unless we get a lot of hype for a certain game. We still have our ARK servers (3 of them, Island, Center, and Scorched Earth). In the next few days I am hoping to have a system in place for people to submit games, and vote on them to see if we get servers for those games.
Saga would like me to add words and coupons into the newsletter for free value meals at Wendy's, however Wendy's refused to sponsor us so we are out of luck.
Nop and Saga would like to see these two emotes in the newsletter
|September/October Newsletter||Sep 16, 2018||roninla|
Another month has passed, and things are moving along for us. We have a couple big announcements for you guys here at the ATeam. The first of which is about the T-Shirt design. Not many people voted, but we still had a winner by a landslide. The winning design was Option B, so the front logo will be on the left side of the shirt.

|Who wants to buy official Ateam shirts?! Here is your chance to vote on which shirt is our first official
Ateam branded apparel.|
The official dates for the Annual AteamLAN have been set! The dates for this year is Oct 12th, 13th, 14th of this year! Will you go? Contact MaxCFM for details. That pretty much wraps up the official business, now for the random notes/ funnies from the meeting
Adam apparently wants to live in a Uhaul here in a couple years. He mentioned he does not like his current state of residence. Which I think we can all agree he probably is talking about his ARK base. He'll move soon...
Kgoto logged in and one of the first sentences was "Octopus is a wet spider" which makes me wonder what that guy looks up when he is at home.
iamthesaga is super busy and needs an assistant.
Queen of the Nop made an appearance and seems to be asleep at all times.
HotRodNerd has a slight security risk with his roomba as Del has taken over the roomba and is going to follow HotRod around.
|ATeam Gaming Community|
The ATeam Gaming Community was founded by iAmApropos in 2013 with the intention of bringing gamers from all walks of life together in a supportive and fun community. In 2016, iAmApropos had to step away from the ATeam, passing the torch to a group of people who keep the spirit of the ATeam (Apropos Team) Gaming Community alive and growing. We strive to maintain a balanced, neutral, and fun-loving atmosphere, with live-streaming content creators broadcasting around the clock playing with community members and guest viewers alike.
We welcome everyone with open arms.
