Announcement Unjust Ban Escalation and Ignoring the Chain of Command

  • 1,083
  • 0
The one day bans on Shiryu and TechPanda were unjust.

Not because they did nothing wrong. Rather, both had transgressed in their respective instances enough to warrant a ban. However, the length of punishment was chosen without due process, going immediately to a one-day ban without anything intermittent.

The punishment order for a single night is as follows:
  1. First transgression: Warning or kick the member to cease and desist.
  2. Second transgression:
    1. If the member belongs to the group of the present sovereignty leader:
      1. 5 minute ban for small transgressions, such as a direct, blatant insult, i.e. racial pejoratives, sexist pejoratives, IRL references.
      2. 60 minute ban for a serious transgression but not one that would require an inquiry, i.e. minor trolling or griefing.
    2. If the member does not belong to the group of the present sovereignty leader:
      1. Warning the user that re-entering the channel will result in an immediate...

Announcement Clarification on Spam and Upcoming TeamSpeak Policy

  • 1,039

There has been some confusion over what qualifies as spam and what punishments it entails.

Spam is the repetition of unwanted text, imagery, sound, or actions.
  • Sending an overwhelming amount of text messages is spam.
  • Sending repetitive unwanted imagery.
  • Playing unwanted repetitive sounds over the mic.
  • Switching channels multiple times in TeamSpeak.
Based on these criteria, internet shock sites qualify as spam. Sending of them in TeamSpeak or any other |UGA| medium will not be tolerated.

As many of you know, Planetary Ensigns must be in TeamSpeak for 30 days with moderate activity, and have a forum account to be promoted to System Lieutenant. I am currently working on cleaning the System Lieutenants list from users who are not registered on the forums. However, this runs into a logistical issue.

How do we keep track of which users have a forum account?

The best way to do this would be to set a user's description field to the URL of his/her forum...

Announcement Elections are underway!

Announcement Sovereignty Forums Guide

Superclusters can read the reasoning here:


Anyway, we need to spur the usage of the forums and one of the best ways to do that is to actually start using the Sovereignty forums the way they were meant to be used.

If you play a game not listed in the Supremacys or States

Post a new thread here:


If you are the Sovereignty Leader of a State

Post a new thread in your State's forum:


If your State does not have a forum, reply to this post telling me. I could just synchronize the forums with TeamSpeak, but once again, I want people to use the forums.

If you are the Sovereignty Leader of a Supremacy

Same as above, except post your channel description in the root channel of your Supremacy.

I have currently disabled the ability for Supercluster...

Announcement 1000 Members and Promotions

A brief announcement for this Sunday night, we reached 1000 members last weekend!


And I forgot to post an announcement for it :'(

Also, I am promoting two people on the Magnets and Waffles server:
  • SkyrimShuffle - Trial to Moderator
  • Johnathan - Trial to Moderator
I always reward effort and it is the fault of my own laziness and excuses that I didn't log into SourceBans and promote Skyrim two weeks ago, but after my motherboard completely failed, I realize that I need to get back to working on the servers in any way I can before I get my computer fixed.

I also know that Skyrim will display getting promoted over Jonathan, but both of them have done a good job of populating the server, and are both individuals I want on the admin team going forward as Magnets and Waffles fills up to 20 people with no admins online.

Meeting System Lieutenant and Galactic Commander Meeting Summary

  • 1,030
  • 0
This is a summary of the two meetings that were held last night, for those of you who did not attend or could not make it.

Revamp of Ranking Systems, Promotions and Demotions.

Jiya Re (Freiturnier) was promoted from Galactic Commander to SuperCluster Commodore.
L.G.Dynamo (Dejha Seo) was promoted from Galactic Commander to SuperCluster Commodore.
Rezin was promoted from Galactic Commander to SuperCluster Commodore.
Space Ace was promoted from Galactic Commander to SuperCluster Commodore.

The Galactic Command Center (The Galactic Commanders) were all temporarily demoted, until they apply via the forums. The only exception is SuperND, who kept his Galactic Commander.

Current State of the "Constitution"

The Constitution is honestly in Shambles and Ignored at this point, so once the Galactic Commanders apply, the Super-Clusters and Galactic-Commanders will come together to make a more concise set of rules and guidelines.

Announcement TeamSpeak Revamp, Website Updates, and Roster Census

Hello to all |UGA| members! New and old, guests and members.

As you may know, last weekend I finished a revamp of TeamSpeak that was intended to remove the channel bloat that came from extreme scope creep. We had 100 channels and less than 20 active members. I have flagged 15 channels for deletion, and after deleting the Phantasy Star Online 2, Lost Saga, League of Legends, and Dota 2 channels, we are down to 65 channels in TeamSpeak.

We now have 4 Supremacy groups, 10 States, and 10 Commonwealth channels. Based on the input of both Jiya Re and hero respectively, we have made the States channels specific to individual games until they can be promoted to Supremacies, and Commonwealths are generic game channels.

We only have one AFK channel, I have brought back The Quiet Channel, and we have a new policy for file transfers. I will change the permissions of TeamSpeak so that you can only upload files to a single channel. This way, I don't have to clean up the FTP directory for...

Announcement Currency System, Raffles and Ingame Purchases

Pat and I are discussing a site wide currency system. This would work to implement raffles and ingame purchases. The way this would work is extremely simple. The more you read, reply to, and create threads, you get money.

Money which is only usable with UGA content. This money can go to buying raffle tickets for monthly or weekly game drawings. You will be able to purchase ingame items for things like Magnets and Waffles. In Minecraft, you would be able to purchase custom templates for your structures, bonus exp drop and much more.

Many other things could come of this.

Announcement Welcome to the forums!

Hello, and welcome to the forums everyone! After six years, the Universal Gaming Alliance finally has forums.

With the creation of the forums, I have promoted Hero and Silent to Galactic Commanders. I am now giving the Galactic Commanders one month to prove that they are actively trying to promote for the cause of the |UGA|. Galactic Commanders who do not show they are at least attempting to recruit by the end of the month will lose their position.
