501st Film Festival

 

 

    As most of you may know, our recruitment video posted on the 501st Website and accompanying Youtube channel is really out of date. As such, CC Player announced last week that we will be holding a 501st Film Festival in tandem with the search for a new unit-wide recruitment video! With limits as high as the sky, you can make a video based on the epic drama and warfare we find in the field, or one that is a romantic comedy about a pilot and his LAAT. The purpose is to show the fun and exciting things we do in this unit. 

 

"All that being said BN recognizes the hard work that it is to truly create a video to showcase the unit which is why we are announcing the first ever 501st Film Festival Contest. The way this contest will work is anyone can submit a video to the unit for a chance to win a $100 Steam gift card. This Film Festival will run from today June 2nd-July 1st and the winner will be decided by the community. Later today there will be a channel on Discord created to submit your Videos to the community, and people can vote with using the 359180206851751937 emoji on the video they think best encapsulates the experience we offer here in the 501st." ~CC Player

 

 If you have a video you would like to submit, feel free to post it in the #501st-film-festival channel found in Official 501st Discord!

Event Management: Event Management is looking for individuals who have a keen sense of planning, and would like to help with Events. This would include planning with different event hosts, assisting as zeus for FotM events, and more! Anyone interested is highly encouraged to message CS Pro for more information. Additionally, keep you eye out and be ready for the next Flavor of the Month!

 

 

 Recruitment: As new potential members join our Teamspeak, the Recruiters are some of the first people they will interact with. As such, it is always important to leave a good impression. As they set up the recruit with the mods to join us on server for fun, they also make sure the new recruits have read our rules and guidelines which are important to a Community our size. Recently, the Recruitment personnel have undergone some backend changes in order to make the process easier for both the recruit and the recruiter, as the entire occurrence can sometimes seem long and drawn out. Recruits are always encouraged to join fun ops as soon as their mods are finished, which is the best way to prepare for BCT. RECRUITS DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND BCT IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE ON OUR SERVERS!

 

 

TCW Mod Team: The TCW Team is always looking for new members! No experience is required, only an eagerness to learn and contribute. The TCW Team has people who would be more than happy to teach and help provide resources for learning. For those with modding experience, they are looking for people who are interested in texturing, as well as Modelers, Importers, and Scriptures. If you have experience, or would like to gain some, feel free to message CI-S Purdy for more information!

TEN IN TEN!

(Format for Ten in Ten (until a new rework is done); 1Q = 1st Question, A = Answer)

 

This Week we caught CT Versa, A Senior Trooper In 3-2!

1Q: Where are you from?
A: I am from Miami, Florida

 

2Q: What's it like growing up there, and what did you do growing up?
A: I grew up in the hood, and [REDACTED]

 

3Q: I remember you saying you were a DJ. How did you get into that?
A: I always liked music growing up, death metal, techno, rap, anything and everything. No favorite artist, if it goes hard, it goes hard, you feel me?

 

4Q: What is it like being a DJ?
A: Crippling anxiety. You understand what you're doing, you understand the basics of it, and you know how to execute it, it's just sometimes the stage fright gets to you. If you mess up, its gonna suck. 

 

5Q: Coming from my perspective, I dont know how to DJ. What do you do?
A: So in clubs, they have a big $10,000 machine where you mix on thats hooked up to the speakers, and you just plug in your USB (or laptop if you have an extreme amount of music) and your headset and your setup is done. [...]I just go out there without a plan, no playlist. You have to know what songs you have, and try to continue with the vibe, you have to read the room, you know? Everything revolves around a four count. You usually use the beat of the song to count the four beats. And then every sixteenth measure something changes. Like they add an effect so you gotta listen to the song and match where it is and count yourself in so the beat’s in sync. Then you gotta mix it in slowly or fast depending on how you wanna DJ and shit. You don’t wanna transition when it’s going hard cause it’s gonna sound off. I have a PC so I use FruityLoops. There’s Ableton but it’s advanced and it doesn’t hold your hand. FruityLoops is easier but you still make good shit with it. There’s Garageband - you can do what any other good DJ does on your phone with Garageband.

 

6Q: What do you like to eat?
A: Right now I'm eating clean. Vegetarian/Vegan. I have vegan protein, which is like a protein shake but cleaner for your body. If it werent for eating clean, I'd say Pasta. Carbs. Definitely pasta. Alfredo Pasta.

 

7Q: You're currently a Bartender, right?
A: Yeah, I like it a lot. Talking and bullshitting with people. One thing I’m good at is bullshitting. I make my money by sweet talking people and talking shit with them. Make them feel good and get them more drinks and make more money. You learn about stranger’s lives more than you care to know. I have stories - like - I have hella stories from work. No where else would you hear this or deal with this.

 

8Q: How did you get into the bartending business?
A: One of my boys was working there and he told me to come through cause the bartender there sucked ass. So I was like, “[501st-censor] it, I’ll go.” I applied and my boy chatted me up and they hired me.

 

9Q: What is your dream job?
A: I don’t know, maybe open my own bar. I don’t know. I make good money bartending. Having my own bar would be dope as [501st-censor]. I like the science behind making drinks, experimenting and shit.

 

10Q: Where do you want to be in the unit?
A: I don’t know. If I have the time, maybe platoon commander. Infantry shit. I haven’t decided where I wanna go. Maybe run my own squad first.

Editor's Note:

    Hello everyone, and thank you for reading the 501st Newsletter, Issue #42! Due to some schedule conflictions and technical errors, the Krayt article was postponed until today (You can READ IT HERE!). The News Team thanks everyone for their continued support as we push through new ideas and work on quality and consistency. We will be publishing another article this upcoming Friday in order to maintain our consistency standards we try to hold ourselves accountable to. Within our team we have had excellent progress from our new Media staff (CM Target, CT Habivi, CT Arcanist), with Target publishing a quick video recap of our campaign in tandem with the Story Writers and our own War Correspondence. We have some awesome projects in the works that would allow you the community to be more interactable with our team, as well as a lot of great article ideas in the works! Lastly, for Cyclone Logos, we are not including any this week, as I do not have any official logos in my possession at this time. Sorry Cyclone!

 

    We appreciate your continued loyalty to our content, and encourage suggestions and ideas from the community. If you have a cool video project you would like showcased, or that you believe would be a cool addition to our News content, feel free to message myself (CX-X Canik), or CT Momentum.

501st Stickers:

 (Per BC Jay)

   

"I know ALOT of people were interested in buying or getting their hands on 501st stickers.

  

It just so happens that we do have 50. Though we're limited on mailing these to the US only for the time being. The sales of these will be towards the 501st! For 8$ USD, you can have these shipped to you.

  

These are 3 Inch x 3 Inch stickers. If you're interested in these, please contact me FIRST via discord pm's (before you send anything with PayPal) or you can catch me in the Team Speaks TownHall to ask some questions if you got them! (These will help us afford to give out more free stickers and other things in the future) With that being said, once all the new platoons and detachments send in their new logos I'll be able to start the merch store up! Hopefully, 501st stickers will be the first thing on there so people outside the US can get their hands on them too.

  

These are not holographic like the other ones given away.

Discord Management: As the Discord Admin, I want to reiterate my latest announcement on the discord. If you have a channel you would like to see made, or any changes, please make sure you speak with BC Jay, CC Cruisie, or CC Player (this list may extend soon), and THEN submit a Discord Bug Report Form. If you have a permission issues (Help! I cant see (insert channel) and I'm supposed to!), you may message myself (CX-X Canik) directly to get it fixed, but you must STILL fill out the form mentioned. This is so I have a form of record keeping for my personal changelog that a future Discord Admin may view. Thank you!

Editor's Note:

    Hello everyone, and thank you for reading the 501st Newsletter, Issue #41! Recently, we posted an announcement for a recruitment drive in the Official 501st Discord. Previously we were looking for Newsletter Correspondents and War Correspondents. This time we are looking for some creative thinkers to join the Journalist side of the team in order to help bring you guys quality articles to read. In addition, a few changes were made within the News Team, including the compression of our two journalist teams into one (with the hopes that we can focus our efforts in standardizing our quality), additions to our War Correspondents (with positions always open, especially with the newest expansions), as well as a start on some new project ideas (including CM Target's quick recap video of the previous weekend of campaigning). 

 

    We appreciate your continued loyalty to our content, and encourage suggestions and ideas from the community. If you have a cool video project you would like showcased, or that you believe would be a cool addition to our News content, feel free to message myself (CX-X Canik), or CT Momentum.

 

    Make sure to keep your eyes out for a few articles in the near future, including an in-depth look into the Krayt Program, as well as the newest expansion to the 501st Legion, Cyclone Company!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 


Announcements

 

  

 

CYCLONE

 

 

    As the 501st Legion marches forward in time, we look into better ways to help the members with their ambitions, both in game and out of game. We recently saw the expansion of Acklay into a Company unfold, which presented ease on the game servers during their operations, as well as opportunities for rank progression. This expanse also acted as a proof of concept for Avalanche to attempt the same. Prior to these events, only once had another Company of infantry opened in 501st history, Blizzard. There were various reasons as to why Blizzard did not work, but instead of leaving the idea dead in the water, our new leadership decided to expand on it and try something new. This would be Cyclone.

 

    As of posting this Newsletter, we can only provide the basic public details.

    WHEN: Sunday, 05/24, after 2nd Platoon's Operation. These changes are as of current on schedule to begin at the conclusion of the Operations on Sunday.

 

    WHO: Avalanche will be brought down to 3 Platoons, each platoon consisting of 3 squads each. Cyclone will see an existing platoon join it's ranks, with an addition of 2 more platoons, all with 3 squads each. The majority of 4th Platoon will become 1st Platoon of Cyclone Company. The majority of 3rd Platoon Avalanche Company will become 3rd Platoon Cyclone Company. Various squads from the 4 current platoons will be incorporated into the new platoons, or transition to the newly organized Avalanche Platoons. Many of these squad and platoon changes were made with their members in mind, based on availability for the new Operation Times. 

 

    OPERATION TIMES: These are the times currently publicly available: 

Avalanche 3 -- 8pm Thursday

Acklay 2 -- 6pm Friday

Cyclone 3 -- 8pm Friday

Cyclone 2 -- 2pm Saturday

Cyclone 1 -- 430pm Saturday

Avalanche 1 -- 530pm Saturday

Acklay 1 -- 3pm Sunday

Avalanche 2 -- 5pm Sunday

  

Disclaimer - This is all public knowledge. Due to the nature of this expansion, information may change as quickly as it is released, and as such this announcement is purely to help make people aware of said changes.

 

 

DISCORD REORGANIZATION:

 

  

At long last, some organization within the Discord. On 05/20, many big changes where made to the Discord, including the condensing of channels and categories, as well as the renaming and adjustments to others. The most notable of these changes would be the slimming of C Shop related categories into their base department categories. Now, all C1 - Personnel related C Shops are within the C1 - Personnel category. This change includes all MoS and Qualification channels (now found under C6 - Training). A few C Shop channels were left alone, however. Tech Support is still found under "501st Unit Information", and the Aux Mod still has it's own category, both due to the nature of their shops. Another big change was the reorganization of the channels found near the top of the Discord, as well as some name changes. "General Stuff" category is now known as "501st Open" with the intent of being the social channels available to guests and members alike. "Unit Info" is now "501st Unit Info" and contains informative channels regarding information for the 501st. "501st Community" kept its name, but saw the addition of Unit Chat and Unit Photos, and the loss of the "Other" channels (Other Events, Other Events Discussion, and Other Games), sacrificed to the "501st Social" category. Additionally, the "Newcomers" category was moved to the top of the discord, with informative channels as well as the Recruiter Central (Now Recruiter Open) placed within for the sake of people wishing to join the community. Tag Request and Leave of Absence remains where it is, within "501st Unit Info". 

 

You will also see some additional name changes, such as the renaming of all "-public" channels now called "-open". These changes were for consistency. Lastly, as stated in the announcement prior to this, Cyclone Company will be opening, and as such, Cyclone Company, and Cyclone 1-3 categories were created as placeholders for the big switcheroo. These categories are currently empty, but will be utilized as the expansion occurs this Sunday. As the Discord Admin, I understand some of these changes come as a frustration, but it is a necessary move as we continue to create and expand our ranks within the unit. If you come across any bugs or news features you didnt normally have and have not earned by billet, please send me (CX-X Canik) a DM, or poke me on our TS. Thank you!

 

   

News

 

 

UTC: Showing some love to our UTC instructors, we would like to remind all recruits who have passed BCT to attend a UTC orientation in order to complete their training and continue to progress their skills and abilities. Orientation is scheduled for next friday (05/29) at 6pm EST, with an orientation taking place every other Friday. Currently, UTC staff are not recruiting for additional instructors, however, as the flow of recruits increases, so too will the need for more instructors. Keep an eye for future recruitment announcements for UTC staff positions.  

 

 

 ROSTER CLERKS: With recent changes in Roster Clerk staff, some new positions were recently opened. Applicants that were Cadets or above were asked to create an example roster, and send it to CC Fancy as part of the application process. Currently, selected applicants are under review, with decisions expected to be made soon. 

 

 

TCW: TCW staff are looking for additional members to fill their ranks. Their current recruitment focus is on those who have skills in Texturing, though if you have experience within any modding capacity, feel free to apply. Additionally, the team is looking for more 501st Testers, where you would be required to test various assets within the mod, and provide information about said assets that can help improve the quality overall. TCW is also working on polishing a variety of aspects of the mod, and will be updated the 3AS Beta soon. If you are interested in any position within TCW, feel free to contact CC Lava, CS-M Drifter, or CP Tuff within the 501st, or CC Jek or CLC Ganch of the 212th.

Editor's Note:

    Hello everyone, and thank you for reading the 501st Newsletter, Issue #40! Recently, we posted an announcement for a recruitment drive in the Official 501st Discord, and within that announcement, a statement was made regarding the status of the 501st News Team. We have been made aware of some comments regarding our content quality and publication consistency. We sat down and had a team meeting, and I want to let you, the readers, know that we hear you. We're always watching...

 

    As such, we are undergoing some major changes in our journalist methods, and increasing our efforts to bring you guys better content. As for the consistency of publications, that is entirely on me, CX-X Canik. We will be maintaining more strict deadlines in order to bring our content to you in a timely fashion. We want to thank you readers for your continued loyalty in reading our content, regardless of what and when we post. Thank you!

 

    Make sure to keep your eyes out for a few articles in the near future, including a more in depth look into the Acklay expansion, as well as the Krayt ARC Program!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 Winners

 

 

This month's raffle has a bit of a twist. There was a total of 20 stickers, 4 copies of Jedi Fallen Order, and the book Star Wars: Complete Locations given away this month during our most recent raffle. But that's not the twist. The twist to this raffle is that all 20 of the stickers, 1 of the Fallen Order copies, and the Star Wars book were all donated by CX-W Prof! On top of this, this individual also donated a sticker to each member of Battalion, Avalanche Company HQ, Acklay Company HQ, Zeta Company HQ, and the CO and XO of each Platoon (Acklay and Avalanche)! His reasoning for this generous donation (sticker prices add up!) is "because during times like these, a community this helpful and fun is great to have, and I am honored to know I am a part of it!"

 

The list is long.

 

The Sticker Winners are:                  

CT Scavenger CT Ritter CT Nuclear CX-X Zoro CS Tee
CT Hook CP Grandpa CT Diverge CM Soviet CT Sticks
CT Maelstrom CT Sour CP Seejers CT Pigeon CP Black
CT Connor CP Needles CR-C Castle CP Guide CW-O Super

 

The Jedi Fallen Order Winners and the Star Wars: Complete Locations book Winner are:

CT Goddest CX-X Alex
CT Versa CX-X Ethan

CX-C Halligan

 

In the last part of this topic, the following individuals all received a sticker as a thank you from CX-W Prof: BC Jay, CS-M Odin, CS-M Shade, CI-S Power, CC Cruisie, CC Euler, CC Player, CC Crisis, CI-S Purdy, CW-M Archon, CC Fancy (donated his to Vt. CT Weaver), CC Point, CS Hoodoo, CS-M Pompano, CS Bjorn, CC Andromeda, CS-M Drammon, CS-M Drifter, CS-M Sam, CC Lava, CS-M Jan, CS Nobear, CS-M Ricochet, CS Grinch, CC Delta, CS Zulu, CX Scuba, CX-P Casskun.

Per CC Crisis: New Server Restart Times!

 

 

    "Good afternoon all. In our continued mission to increase server performance, we have discovered a recent issue with an Arma update and our box. I won't bore you with the details, but in short it is due to a recent Arma update. There have been duplicated instances of Arma appearing on our server box. These extra instances are creating a hamper on server box performance. From what we have found these occur over the course of the day and disappear with a restart of the server box. We have an automatic box restart each day around 4 am EST, but this is not enough. To provide the best opportunity for server performance we will be doing a server box restart on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday before Operations and FTXs begin.

    Here are the times the server box will restart on those days:

Friday: 5 PM EST

Saturday: 3 PM EST

Sunday: 2 PM EST

 

    These times have been decided by trying to balance everything that happens with our schedule and the 101st (they share our box). These times have been placed at points where some trainings or events would be ending and others starting. If you have a training that starts at this time you will need to adjust slightly. The restart should only take 15 minutes, so it will not delay your training much. As for fun ops just be aware of this to try and complete your fun ops by these times or else the server will just lose connection while it is being restarted. We understand this may cause a slight inconvenience for some, but it is to assist with creating Operations and FTXs with the best performance possible. Have a nice day.

 

 

CAMPAIGN MEDALS:

LLZrK7f

"For the planet of Rugosa, due to the great courage, valor, and sometimes bullheaded nature of Avalanche 4-1, they have been awarded the Planetary Ribbon. After their daring joust with death during the initial deployment onto the planet, Avalanche 4-1 dove head first into a minefield of their own creation to delay enemy troop advancements. As if that were not death defying enough, they then pursued the enemy into their own ship, and ripped the controls from their cold, dead, oily hands, ultimately claiming it for the 501st."

 

 

  Rb4SJfl

"On the planet of Nawan, the 501st felt the hand of a droid tactician who lured the platoons into a dangerous ambush with tactics that brutalized those who foolishly fell into his trap. During the onslaught, the droid artillery rained down, and one squad stood tall and continued to show the droids what we clones are made of. Avalanche 2-2 stood on the droid's doorstep, and no matter the hellfire from the sky, nor the demon MTT that attacked from their rear, they held the line in the sand that they drew so that the rest of the platoon could fall back and regroup."

 

 

KVVu661

"On the planet of Vohai, key clone genetic material was in jeopardy of falling into the hands of the CIS, and Avalanche 3-4 rose to the occasion to defend all clones from future attacks. Not only pushing through dense forested coastline, and combating overwhelming odds to find a hidden supply depot, they have shown extreme perseverance and resilience to hardships throughout the campaign. The squad's determined nature and unwillingness to allow future battles to fail before they even start has surely saved all of the 501st from the evil plans of the CIS scientists on this day!"

 

 

ZQylpLE

"Upon initial contact of D'Qar, the 501st quickly realized the CIS defenses were more well established than previously thought. Along with this, we learned about the CIS capturing and enslaving the local populace. Avalanche 2 was able to locate the remaining planetary locals along with their King, only to have a bombing campaign begin, with the intent to wipe them off the face of the planet. Avalanahce 2-3 was able to hold the line, with several witnesses saying that not only were the bombs raining down, but the carcasses of the victims of that squad rained down, ensuring the droid commanders never again underestimated them on the field of battle."

Story Writers:  “Currently we have developed a second branch of Story Writers. They are going to be working behind the scenes to make things more interesting. We have a lot of projects in the works and are currently planning for a big end to the "Test Sector". We have been working with Acklay and the Campaign Leadership in order to do a more involved Intel gathering phase to the Planets. All is going well and we are continuing the grind. FILL OUT THE STORY REVIEW FORM as it helps us know what to do to get better, It can be found within TFAR, the Story Writers Channel, and lastly my Office.”  - CS Bjorn

 

 

Document Maintenance Committee: The Document Maintenance Committee has been reorganized in order to ensure that public unit-wide documents are kept up to date in a timely fashion. These sort of documents include the 501st Unit Rules (Revised), Gear and Uniform Guides, Rank Requirements (both versions), and other various public documents that are not specifically designated to another C Shop. As such, they are in need of a few positions filled, including Assistant Committee Lead, Proofreader, and Distribution Overseer. Another aspect of the shop is to make sure the document links are updated within the various teamspeak channels they are located in. If you are interested in applying for one of these positions, please send a message to CP Clock for further information.

 

 

Event Management: The Event Management C Shop put out a vote for the Flavor of the Month for June 2020, and while it has not officially been announced, the votes seem to indicate that the majority want a Vietnam Theme. The Flavor of the Month is the style of Arma gameplay that one of our dedicated servers is oriented around, using various mods for different eras. On top of determining the FotM, the Event Management C Shop also helps assist event creators in promoting the event, and can help schedule events so they do not overlap each other, allowing everyone to participate in multiple events are they come along. Message CP Pro for further information regarding Event Management if you are interested!

Editor's Note:

    Hello everyone, and thank you for viewing the 501st Newsletter, Issue #39! In this issue, we are including a new short segment called Ten in Ten. In this, we find random members of the 501st Community and have them answer 10 questions within 10 minutes or less (we try to stress less!). As a small fun tidbit tribute to our random members, we seek their instinctive answers to a variety of questions (most of which will be completely random!). As time progresses, so too will the quality of Ten in Ten. In addition, we are working on a new format for Ten in Ten to make it more appealing. 

 

    Make sure to keep your eyes out for a few articles in the near future, including one surrounding the 91st, a more in depth look into the Acklay expansion, as well as the Krayt ARC Program!

    Krayt ARC Program: (Due to the nature of this announcement, a direct copy-paste from the original announcement found in the Official 501st Discord is being used)

    Good evening everyone.
Tonight we held Graduation of Advanced Recon Development of our Phase 1 Krayt ARC Troopers and Induction of our Phase 2 Krayt ARC Troopers.

    Phase 1: In January we had interviews for Phase 1 of the Krayt ARC Program and selected 8 individuals to be the pioneers of the Krayt Program. We are happy to announce all 8 troopers have passed Advanced Recon Development! Thank you to all those who helped them along their way: TLs, SL, HQs, Acklay Phase Gold instuctors, RTO HQ, Medical HQ, and anyone I forgot.

 Jink  Habivi
 Rayne  Korvus
 Halo  Darkstar
 Virtox  Brennan

   

    Phase 2: This past week we did another round of interviews all of which being pretty good potential ARCs, but we had to select 12. The following 12 individuals have been selected to be the Phase 2 ARC troopers and begin their Advanced Recon Development! Next to their names will also include their squad placement.

 

 Bronson: Krayt 1-1  Locke; Krayt 1-2
 Tuch: Krayt 1-4  Scruff: Krayt 2-1
 Weaver: Krayt 2-2  Nightingale: Krayt 2-3
 Teacup: Krayt 2-4  Kitsune: Krayt 3-2
 Duke: Krayt 3-4  Archaic: Krayt 4-1
 Train: Krayt 4-2  Fallout: Krayt 4-4

   

    Also with Phase 2 we are slotting 4 of the Phase 1 Graduates as Platoon level ARCs. Next to their names will include their Platoon callsign.

 

 Jink: Krayt 1  Korvus: Krayt 2
 Darkstar: Krayt 3  Brennan: Krayt 4

 

    As a note Rayne was transferred from Krayt 2-2 to Krayt 3-1. All of these transfers are approved and effective immediately. Make sure tags, channels, and rosters are updated. All current ARC slots and billets are now full; each Platoon has a Krayt Lead and each Squad has a Krayt Trooper. Krayt Documentation will be updated soon. If you have any questions please place them in #krayt-public or take them up your CoC. Congratulations to all and have a goodnight! - Avalanche Company Command

Time for a Discord

Time for a Discord

 

With a unit as big as the 501st, it requires a discord just as big.

 

The 501st is one of the largest communities in Arma. As of writing it consists of one GI company, one Airborne company, one aerial squadron, and an armored detachment; adding up to around 400 active members. This of course barely scratches the surface of how many people are truly in the unit, with an active reservist company also made up of four sections and an even larger group of inactive reservists not to mention all the fresh CRs. These members all combined bring the  unit easily close to one thousand members. To keep everyone “in the know” the unit has two main ways of communication: the teamspeak for general conversation and official 501st functions such as operations and squad trainings; and the discord used for day to day conversation and big announcements. Due to how large the unit as a whole , the Discord numbers somewhere over 1000 people. With such a large Discord, a team of members from across the 501st have been assembled to moderate it and ensure that everyone has a good time. This team is made up of a small group of trusted Discord admins, the NCOs of the 501st, and finally the unit’s military police. These three groups of people work together to provide a quality experience on our unit’s Discord.   

 

 

THE ADMINS

 

 

    The forefront of the Discord moderation has usually come from our Discord admins; CW-S White and CX-X Canik. White has been one of our longest running Discord admins and has almost been here since the start of the unit. White joined the unit back in 2017 when it was first started, after the 501st scrapped their old Discord and made the one we use today, he stepped up and began to help in it’s moderation. Soon after, White was made our Discord admin. Recently due to how large the unit has become, moderation of this Discord can not just fall to one man and CX-X Canik has been the second admin to join White to help take some of the workload off of him. Their main job here is to assist in the backhand work of the Discord, this mostly includes creation of new roles and channels and the technical side of running a Discord. 

 

 

THE MP'S

 

 

    The other group of individuals who have access to all of the channels on our Discord is the Military Police. The Military Police have been around for a while in the 501st and were recently given access to all channels on the Discord to also help with it’s moderation. Their job in relation to our Discord is to simply observe and ensure that there are no issues and if there are any, to bring them to the proper individuals, who can handle it from there. CP Bjorn, one of the military police, has described it as “Keeping the peace”. Additionally CX Scuba, the current acting head of the Military Police had the following to say: “To enforce rules, hold people accountable for their actions, identify when there are problems and be a mediator in situations,”.

   

    The main purpose of the Military Police as described by CX Scuba and CP Bjorn is to ensure that everyone is having a good time, whether that be on the Discord, on the teamspeak, or in-game. They are here to act as mediators when a situation does arise. CX Scuba said the following as to why he became an MP: “No one signs up for the purpose of going after members. For many, it’s about being a mediator for fairness or being an option for unit members to reach out to, especially to handle difficult situations. My reason for joining is because I care about how people treat each other in the unit, but obviously it’s always preferred that everyone is enjoying their time.

 

    THE NCO'S

 

 

    The backbone of our Discord moderation isn’t handled by either group, but instead handled by our excellent NCOs, coordinated and assisted by the battalion NCOIC, CS-M Odin. Odin described his own role on the Discord as that of every other NCO, to keep their eyes and ears open looking for any issues/people getting out of line and to correct it if it hadn’t already been handled. Our NCOs are responsible for moderating and regulating our Discord, mostly in relation to all public channels and their own personal squad/platoon channels depending on their billet. Their job is to act as mediators and moderators between various members of the unit when people get out of line and to enforce the rules of the unit, including the Discord. Odin has described the moderation of the Discord as due to the fact that the Discord is such a large place, it can not be one individual left to its moderation. As such our NCOs act as a team to keep it moderated. They ensure that the rules of the 501st stay followed, and help moderate issues between members of the 501st when the need arises.

 

    As described by Odin, our NCOs, admins, and military police work together to make the Discord a thriving place where you and I can go to chat, share memes, and much more. When asked what he thought about the community Odin had the following to say “The community, the friendships that I made here, joined the unit two months after making my PC, joining this unit was a stroke of luck, not sure that I was going to be this dedicated and stayed because of the friendships that I made, people like Player,Koda, and Shade that I have known for about as long as they were here in the unit, working together to create experiences that others can enjoy, and to keep the unit running, even when having bad days I do it anyway because I feel very lucky to be in the position that I am in,”.

 

"Jay, what the ****?"- CW-S White

 

 

 If it was not for the dedication of our admins, military police, and NCOs the discord would not be what it is today! With a well rounded team in place to keep our members safe and informed, the Discord has become an essential part of the units day to day functions.  As always, thanks for reading and be ready to do some recon on our next Corp article. Till next time.

Editor's Note:

Hello everyone, and thank you for viewing the 501st Newsletter, Issue #38! I want to start by apologizing for the massive delay! Due to IRL complications, I have neglected to publish this issue until now. I sincerely apologize for the delay. This issue may seem a little less filling, but here are some changes to the newsletter: Thanks to CS Jupiter, one of our own Graphic Designers, our BARC Bulletin will have a new format, giving it a neater look! Additionally, thanks to Jupiter, the Company, Platoon, and Detachment logos you may have seen in the last issue have been resized, which should give them a more conforming look. Thank you again for reading! Keep your eyes out for our next article regarding the primary information hub of the 501st, the Official 501st Discord!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Announcements

 

 

    Upgrading the Server Box! BC Jay announced a few weeks back that he has plans to upgrade our server box, allowing for more entertainment by providing the needed factors to host servers for other games. This is so that we as a unit can take over other games' playba- I mean, allows us to host servers on games played by our community members, helping to alleviate the costs members spend to host private servers, as well as providing additional Arma servers where Other Events (such as WW2, Vietnam, Checkpoints RP, etc) can be hosted without disturbing the daily use of other servers. The current server box cost somewhere around $2500, with the new one planned around 4 times that amount. While this is ambitious, it is entirely possible. As a reminder, our community is run on donations, and as such, surplus donations will be allocated to this new box for the enjoyment of the community as a whole. For further information, feel free to contact BC Jay via TS or Discord!

 

 

    New Rule Document! A document containing information on our standardized rules has been created by CP Clock! You can find the document HERE! Feel free to familiarize yourself with it. The Document can also be located in other locations where the Standardized 501st Rules can be found (including the TS channel). Thank you for the hard work and dedication, CP Clock!

Editor's Note:

Hello all, and thank you for reading the 501st Newsletter, Issue #37! Sorry for the delay in posting the Newsletter! We are slowly working back to getting on a regular schedule again. Be sure to keep an eye out for our next article in the Legion Profile series, as well as two other article releases. A few notes for this Issue; We have added Acklay 1 & 2 to Platoon News (before it was just Acklay HQ). In the last Newsletter, it was announced that Acklay had moved to a Company level. Another change, we have included the whole of Zeta under Company News. Due to the nature of the company, all promotions (CR-C to CT+) will be listed in that section. Thank you again for reading!

CAMPAIGN NEWS! The Battle on Geonosis was long and valiantly fought, with the Hand proving to be a difficult nemesis. However, the 501st Legion prevailed as usual, and as such, there are a few awards that are being distributed among the Legion. 

 

    Avalanche 3-2, through heroic actions and resolve, are being awarded the Herdessa Campaign Ribbon. (See details in Discord #announcements, 2/12/2020) Copy

 

    Avalanche 2-4 and Acklay 2-2 (formerly 1-4), both cornerstones to their respected platoons, are being awarded the Geonosis Campaign Ribbon. (See details in Discord #announcements, 2/12/2020)JutH5g7

 

    4th Platoon, for showing continued excellence and unwavering resolve, was a key factor in capturing the Hand’s compound. Due to their involvement in several key battles, they are awarded the Savareen Sector Ribbon. (See details in Discord #announcements, 2/12/2020)JutH5g7 1

Lastly, Battalion and Company HQ members would like to congratulate every platoon and detachment for their hard work and efforts throughout the recent campaigns!

 

 

 

BATTALION CHANGES! As most of you know by now, CS-M Verax, our Battalion NCOIC has stepped down from his position due to IRL reasons. He leaves behind a legacy in helping drain the community of individuals who inhibited the growth of the unit, as well as took part in many radical changes that has helped shape the 501st into what it has become. He will be replaced with CS-M Odin (Avalanche Company NCOIC) as the Acting Battalion NCOIC until further notice. Another change in the Battalion structure is BC Bondoer has needed to step away from his position as Battalion XO, also due to IRL reasons. Many of you know him as the Head of MPs, doing a great part in keeping the 501st Community safe from those who wish to do it harm. He is being replaced by CX Scuba (Razor CO), as Acting Battalion XO until further notice.

If you are interested in one of the 5 positions, or have any questions or concerns, please message any Senior Recruiter, CX-X Alex, or CP Walsh.

Editor's Note:

Hello all, and thanks for reading the 501st Newsletter, Issue 36! As you may have noticed, it’s been a long while since the newsletter has been posted, and there is more content than normal. The News Team has been hard at work finalizing some articles for posting, as well as reforming the team itself and the way we operate in order to bring you, the reader, more material to enjoy. A few key differences to this News Letter; under each HQ and Detachment in the promotions areas, we will begin incorporating certain news pieces (for detachments and HQs, this will usually be recruitment dates, or policy changes that apply to the whole unit; and for platoons, this will usually be for squad recruitment. DM myself or Momentum if you want your squad recruitment posted, otherwise we are left to the discord channel for that information!). Additionally, we have brought back B.A.R.C. Detachment, so make sure you post those lovely photos of your brave and fierce pets in the #news-open Discord channel! Another note, to the RTOs and Medics, information regarding promotions within your personnel and other relevant news had unfortunately been neglected this article. I am deeply sorry for that, and will make sure to get any and all information from you gents for the next one! The past few weeks have been filled with events across all of the 501st. Also, make sure to check out CM Husky's video dedicated to the friendships and bonds that have been made in this great community. You can find it at the bottom of the news letter! Lastly, please ignore the text at the top of the article. Cruisie and I are working to make sure it doesn't show in the next article. I also plan on working on the formatting for future articles to make things look smoother and neater. Thank you all for your patience!

News

    The Mod Development Team is in search of some new talent! If you have the creative and technological know how, the Team is looking for individuals who have experience in scripting, coding, texturing, terrain development, UV mapping, or any other modding skills. Contact CC Lava if you are interested in more information!

 

    The TCW Team was looking for INFANTRY ASSET TESTERS. The application process ended on 12/13/19, but if you have config/modding experience, or don’t but would still like to assist, make sure you keep an eye out for the next openings. These tester positions are very important to the mod creation process, and will allow for a smooth release of the TCW mod. (Please note that we placed this chunk of text under the C-Shop Announcements instead of the Mod and Patch Notes section as this is an official C-Shop Position, and is regarding positioning and recruitment, as opposed to details of the mod creation process)

 

    Have you ever wanted to join a C-Shop? Have you ever wanted to do something worthwhile for the Unit? Have you ever wanted to see something you created in game? Have you ever wanted to be a part of a team spanning across multiple Starsim units in an effort to create a better community? If the answer to the above is yes, then you’ll be glad to know that we are constantly looking for help and talent in the TCW Development Team. We could use every skill we can get our hands on. From modelers to texturers, from importers to scripters/coders. If you would like to join our glorious cause, feel free to send a message to the Lead 501st Developer, CC Lava, or the head of the Weapons team, CS-M Pompano. This is the way.

 

    Tech Support is looking for new members! If you have the drive to help others with technical issues, including mods, game errors, or just general tech issues, and have the patience of an angel, DM CX-P Zatama on Discord with your Rank, Name, and that you are interested!

Avalanche HQ

News: The return of ARC comes as a surprise to many.

Currently, contenders for the ARC positions have been selected, with the interview process under way.

B.A.R.C. DETACHMENT

 

A few weeks ago, we in the News Team asked for your best pictures of your strong companions and battle creatures. While the logo and name may imply we want the good bois of the unit, we want to showcase with every Newsletter one lucky animal, kept and befriended by a member within the 501st. This week's winner is (hopefully) not to be a normal occurrence. (Keep a tissue ready, and I'm not crying, you're crying!)

Faithful companion to our very own CI Chatter (the graphic designer who made our awesome headers), CI Yoda served his battle buddy for nearly 14 years. CI Yoda will be posthumously awarded the "Bestest Boi" Medal

RIP Brother, You'll be missed.
