greenday.community

I bought the domain greenday.community which I think is pretty cool. Right now it's just a redirect (try it out: http://greenday.community will bring you back to GDC - specifically back to this blog post just for funsies). I'm debating whether or not we should change our domain name to greenday.community and drop the .org. I think it would be cool, but also kind of weird since full domains like that aren't really common (they're relatively new). But I also think .org is kind of a weird domai

Tom (Not Anyone.) has been promoted to GDC Admin

I'm excited to share that we are promoting Tom to be the next GDC Admin. Tom will be taking a bigger role in helping to run the forum and manage the moderating team. Tom also wins the award for most promotions in the shortest amount of time. He hasn't even been here a full year, and now he'll be running this place. Anyone who spends time on GDC knows Tom. I wanted to promote him because it's clear he cares about this place and he cares about its members. I know having him join me and L

Khaleesi. has found the orange fountain

In other words, Khaleesi has been promoted to moderator. She was chosen because of her outstanding resume and her ability to be on GDC when she's sleeping. She will receive her benefits (401k, life, dental) after her 90 day review. At that time, her salary will be increased accordingly. Welcome to the team and we're happy to have you on board! (You fuckers better be nice to her.)

GDC got a new server. Sorry about that downtime.

We're back. We've upgraded GDC to a new more powerful server, that just so happens to (more importantly) cost us less per month. If you saw a white page for a little while as you tried to load GDC, that means you were looking at the old server. Internet providers have to log IP changes when a site changes from one server to a new one, that process (called DNS propagation) can take anywhere from a few minutes to 48 hours. It just depends on each provider and how quickly they realize the chang

Help us pay the forum license costs

Our license renewal is up for the forum, blogs and chat room. All together they cost $100 to renew. I'm hoping those of you who can might help us pay for this license renewal to keep everything online (the chat is already offline because of this). Any small amount will make it easier for us to pay it. You donate securely via PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account you can use a regular debit/credit card and PayPal will process it. EDIT: We've reached the $100 goal we needed. T

Starting today we're removing links to ask.fm from status updates

The mod team has unanimously decided to stop allowing ask.fm links in status updates. We'll be deleting them from now on. We'll also be removing any other anonymous type q&a sites like anonymous questions via tumblr. The are two major reasons for this change: 1) We're tired of all the promotional links for ask in status updates. There are just way too many that it's nearly removed any value from the status feature. It's become a place simply to promote ask.fm links and everything el

Introducing the Musicians' Lounge!

We would like to introduce our new forum The Musicians' Lounge. This is where the musicians and lyricists of GDC can come to discuss their music and/or lyrics. The main forum (Musicians' Lounge) is used to ask and discuss general musicianship while the subforums are used to post personal work. For more details, check out this thread. Special shout out to Tom (Not Anyone.) for organizing this awesome new forum. We hope you enjoy using the forum and checking out the amazing work of your fellow

Change in warning policy

We have decided to lower the length of how long a warning point lasts from 60 to 15 days. Along with that, the member will lose access to "Clubs" and "Shenanigans" on their first warning. Sounds like a grand time right? But wait, the member will also be limited to 10 posts per day. The suspension will continue to increase with multiple warning points within the 15 days. Here is the breakdown of how long the suspensions will be with each warning point: 1 warning point: 24 hour suspension

New feature: See when your friends online

We've installed a new feature to show you when you have friends online. We hope this will help encourage people to participate in parts of the forum where their friends are, or at the very least, as an indication of when someone you care about is active so you can leave them a comment or message if you want. When friends come up, you'll see a blue notification with this icon at the top of the site. The icon won't show up if none of your friends are online. Clicking that will show a pane

Help GDC with a donation

Hey guys, I'm looking to raise about $500 for both GDA and GDC to help with some expenses and to do some new stuff. The most important thing is just covering a few miscellaneous costs that seem a little out of reach since Green Day went in to hibernation and traffic is down. But I'd also like to use a bit of that money for some contest prizes and a couple new themes for GDC, a Christmas-y one for next month and hopefully a new mobile theme.

Tour threads moved to read-only archive

We've finally gotten around to moving old tour topics from this year into the read-only Previous Tour Dates section. Since all those shows happened more than 3 months ago, there's not really much to continue discussing. Instead we'll keep them as read-only topics so people can look back on them in the future if they wish to. They've been put into subforums for each region, which includes topics for shows going back to 2009. Right now the On The Road forum only includes upcoming dates in Aust

A Note on Harassment and Bullying

Earlier today, a situation developed where several established members were ganging up on and bullying a newer member in status updates. Some were suspended for this, and for those of you involved who weren't (you know who you are), consider this your one verbal warning. Cyber-bullying, including ganging up to attack others, and harassment are not tolerated on GDC in any form. In short, if you bully someone on this site, you will receive a warning and suspension. A verbal warning will not ne

"Words I Might Have Ate" being closed in favor of blogs.

After some feedback from you guys and discussions with the team, I have decided to close down the "Words I Might Have Ate" forum once again in favor of the blog system. I know it's been shitty asking you guys to go from platform to platform and to keep moving your work from one place to the other - but ultimately something just was never really working out. Blogs will better serve creative writing where people can post their work and get feedback. I think it serves a better purpose tha
