What is the Ateam Gaming Community?
My online name being iamApropos based on the word Apropos and that I named my community, OUR community the A-team!
Why does everyone spam ABOMB in chat?
Since we are the "A"team Gaming Community "dropping Abombs in chat" is a way to show A little excitement! get it A little teehee
It has also become our community icon as well as plushies are made in the abomb shape for community members.
Ways in which Abomb is acceptable:
When welcoming a new follower of the stream / member into the Ateam Gaming Community
If something really awesome is announced.
When someone orders a Treat from Treatstream.
When donations happen.
If you want to express your excitement and give props to something really cool that just happened in the game being played.
If you are visiting another streamer on behalf of the community let them know we send our Abombs!
These are great examples of when dropping Abombs might be acceptable. By the way you could also type KAPOW all caps along side your Abombs to show even more enthusiasm and excitement!
We have custom community chat icons available all you have to do is download http://www.frankerfacez.com and it'll allow you to use them!
What is Community Hype?
Community Hype is my way of giving back to the Ateam Gaming Community by giving a specific time during my stream in which I allow and encourage self promotion. Here is an explanation of Community Hype and its rules on how to participate:

Paul - iamApropos
Ateam Gaming Community Hype!
By iamApropos in iamApropos 0Community Hype
During my streams I greatly appreciate everyone who comes to chat and actively participates with the community. Community hype is my way of showing my appreciation and love for the community. Most streamers do not allow anyone to self promote during their streams in fact most streamers will ban you if you promote anything about yourself or any content you might be creating on the internet. I know for a fact that if it wasn't for the community that actively participates and supports me and my online content I'd wouldn't have a reason to continue to produce online content.
What is community hype?
At a specific time during the stream I allow active viewers to promote their social media and or online content.
When is community hype?
I will announce exactly when community hype starts and only during this time of the stream will self promoting be allowed.
What can I post during community hype?
If you create content on the internet dealing with computers and or gaming you are welcome to post your social media links. Do NOT spam repeatedly the same link. I encourage you to provide a small description of your content along with the link.
Who is allowed to post and what type of links are allowed during community hype?
Viewers who have been actively watching the live show are more than welcome to contribute to community hype.
Type of links allowed:
Online content creation pages and social media such as Youtube, Twitch, facebook, twitter, hitbox.
Who is NOT allowed:
If you come to the channel only during community hype just to post links and leave, you will NOT be allowed to post links and your links will be removed.
Type of links not allowed:
Personal donation and or fund raiser, patreon, paypal, merchandise etailer shops are not allowed. Alternative community websites are also not allowed. If it isn't a content creation page or social media page it most likely isn't allowed.
Community hype is about bringing awareness to the online content you create and to help the community grow. Together we can help change the normal selfish attitude most communities have so we can grow a giving and thriving community and hopefully attract many more people with similar desires.
Please do not abuse this privilege or take advantage of my kindness because that will end up ruining this for everyone.
Thank you everyone who actively support the community and I can't wait to see you next stream!

PAX South 2016 Day 1
By iamApropos in iamApropos 0What's up y'all!!?
As most of you may have known I was not planning to attend PAX South at all. I had arrangements to actually be out of the country that ended up not working out last minute so I started planning a meet up instead. Just a few days before PAX South I received a phone call letting me know that I was being given not just 2 badges but two Exhibitor badges for my wife and I. To top it off I was given the privilege to give away 3 single day passes one for each day on behalf of Monoprice and @Steve_OMG.
Thanks to Monoprice for making this years coverage of PAX South possible.
This years event is going to be completely different than last year. I don't have an area or booth to gather people nor do I have specific plan to do so. We have a planned meet n greet Saturday at 12:30pm at the RiverCenter food court so I figured that'd be where we get a group together. What I plan for Friday is to go around get an idea of the floor plan meet up with some people do maybe a couple of interviews and test the sound recording. if sound doesn't turn out as planned I'll end up doing broll and voice over post production. I really don't know if there is a right way to approach a convention like this so I'm flying by the seat of my pants and just going to enjoy myself as much as I can.
I'm preparing for this event by taking lots of vitamin C and other suppliments to hopefully prevent the CON CRUD that typically happens when attending events. I've also packed my camcorder, cybershot hand camera, wifes tablet for possible periscoping, my tablet for personal selfies some ear buds and breath mints.
Today I want to show the Twitch booth specifically, especially after seeing it being put together yesterday behind the scenes which I couldn't show off. Being able to go and look around the day before the event opens felt like I was breaking the rules because most people would never get to see or do that. I'm very honored that I get to experience this event in a way I never thought I would be able to and I'm happy I get to share most of it with all of you.
If you see me at any event:
1. come say hi
2. don't be afraid to hug me, I prefer hugs, I LOVE HUGS!!!
3. if I'm wearing my back pack inquire about any #AteamGC swag
4. Make sure we take a selfie together!!
5. Don't forget the hugs!
Hope to see you there and if not I hope you enjoy my coverage of PAX South 2016!
