Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

Stream is back online

Hey, it’s early!

So, from hereon in things will carry on pretty much as they were.

I will be doling out the last of the administrator powers to Happyman (hopefully tomorrow), meaning he will have all the same powers I have. I will then be taking a more behind-the-scenes technical role, I want to get back to making games properly, and maybe working on updates for the site as well?

I’ve added a link to Mao’s stream in the sidebar of the site (scroll to where it says ‘links’).

Debrel and Freakydemon are both banned from the site, both for getting the channel 24 hour suspensions. It’s actually up to the discretion of the twitch admins as to whether you get a strike or you’re just permabanned, so we were actually quite lucky in both cases. No other users are banned from the site or mumble.

I have taken the liberty of removing stream keys from users who I assume don’t want them (e.g. Mao) but if you change your mind, you can send me an email and I will re-estate your key. Also, if I’ve mistakenly disabled your key, then please do the same thing.

Love, Cats

Some Kinda Podcast: 3PM on Saturday the 29th

Be there or be square! Rithim will be on it! And maybe Tacoman!

We will be watching Final Fantasy: Advent Children the night before. Sometime in the evening but I don’t know exactly when. I will announce it though.

We will be joined by some folks from another stream whose name and address is apparently not final yet. To answer your inevitable questions and\or concerns: yes this stream is formed by people who were\are unhappy with the GLA’s moderation policies. No, I do not want to change the GLA’s moderation policies, but I do want to maintain friendly relations with that stream. Whatever it ends up being called. Something to do with Jonald?

3 day ban from twitch

Hi All,

We’re banned from Twitch again. It’s another temporary ban but this time longer (for 3 days). For now, I have switched the main channel over to Afterdark.

Secondly, I am making Happyman co-admin of the channel. Officially!

Thirdly: ‘ironic’ hate speech is still hate speech. Hate speech is only sometimes protected by american law, never by UK law, not by twitch’s terms of service, and not by this website’s vague definition of ‘polite and gentlemanly’. If you have a problem with that then I would politely advise that you start visiting a different stream channel, I would advise either Ladderstream or WTBfun.

Until then please have fun on afterdark, and message me on steam if you want an afterdark key.



Temporary ban from twitch

Hello all,

We were temporarily banned from Twitch because of Freakydemon’s casual racism.

If you have problems with this banning, please talk to Freakydemon, as he is a dirty Belgian and scrub at life.

Things will be operational again tomorrow evening, until then I have switched out the embed for a hitbox one. However this doesn’t really work as you can’t embed a stream from a hitbox team. So in order to see streams from our hitbox team you will need to manually select them from

If you’d like to be added to this one then send me a message on steam, but I will probably dissolve it after this experiment, unless we can find a way to make teams work better, because right now they work in kind of a crappy way (you have to manually switch to whoever’s streaming, several people can stream at once, every stream has a separate chat etc). It’s basically like everyone having their own separate channels except there’s an index of them.

Please join me, dodds, doyah and blake tomorrow evenink for some hardcore gaming. ALSO MITCH IS INVITED

Also, if you’re too dumb to understand the twitch code of conduct then perhaps hitbox can be your containment service.

Love, Cats

Friendly reminder: Lawyer Guy Surveys, Podcast and Movies

Hello all,

First off, I notice that a lot of the people who partook in the ‘LAWYER GUY CHALLENGE’ have not yet filled out a survey. It would really help me out (like and subscribe) if you fill out the survey, and I will be incorporating the opinions of basically everyone except Animitch, because he’s full of crap. If you haven’t done so already, please head to the new (I redesigned it tolday!) Lawyer Guy microsite and fill them out. There’s one general one at the top of the page, and two separate, level-specific ones farther down.

Second, I think this weekend is a podcast weekend (at the usual time of 3PM BST on saturday and all).  This means that we need to watch a next movie, and our cinematographic experts have selected the masterpiece known only as ‘Super Mario Bros’. It features Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo and Dennis Hopper. And I (with no real confirmation, but we did it this way last time) shall assume that we’re going to be viewing it on Friday evenink (BST). So please join us in afterdark at that time, or find another way to watch the movie, else you will miss the discussion of this cinematic triumph.

Love, Cats
