Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

Twitch bans AO rated games

Here is a link to a list of games currently banned for streaming by twitch. Please read it and understand it.

I believe that Twitch have instituted this ban because they want a roundabout way of banning the game ‘Hatred’ without addressing the issue directly. However, Hatred’s ‘AO’ rating is unofficial and self-inflicted.

Nevertheless, you should not stream Hatred on the main channel. These are twitch’s bullshit rules, and if we don’t want to play by them, we can just quit leeching bandwidth, pack up, and go do something worthwhile with our lives. I’m sure none of you want that to happen, however. If you need login information for GLA After Dark, hit me up on Steam or by email (come@mebro.co.uk) or find someone who knows the login details for that channel.

Podcast: tomorrow (Saturday) at 3PM BRITISH SUMMER TIME

It’ll be cool. Please do not come if you are lame (it is perfectly acceptable to come if you are Lames).

Sorry that the last one has been delayed, it’s just been a relatively busy month for me. I might release the live one and regular one separately.

Please remember that Britain has entered a period of relative sun that we call British Summertime. This means that we are in the GMT+1 timezone.

Love, Cats

GYP Downtime Notice

As some of you might know, GYP is down right now. This is because of an issue with the server farm that our VPS host rents part of. The server owner believes that the GYP VPS is being used to send spam email. It seems unlikely to me that this is what has happened. Tim is trying to resolve the issue with our host, but so far he has not been met with much success. We are hoping to have the site back up next week. If they don’t return our data, we will revert to an older backup and go with another host. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Much Love,

Catsman
