“Play hard and have FUN harder!”
ALTTABME was founded on the idea of a place where fun and our everyday lives could intermingle. It is important that the stigmas attached to gaming and anonymity are not taken advantage of, but used to empower a mature community where actions reflect on the entire member base and give each individual a voice without defamation.
Community, friends, family, games — this is what the founders envisioned in the early development of ALTTABME. They wanted a place where their left and right brained selves could co-exist no matter what games they jumped to, opinions they formed, or side of the bed they woke up on. Several years later, the community has taken on a life of its own, growing into a family with an ever open door and welcoming words. Like a hostel in the middle of a big trail, you can choose to stay as long as you want or grab some information and be on your way.
Iteration plays a key role in this community, as it does in the industry of the games we play. Coming from a strong background in product management and development work in the gaming industry, the founders use their experiences to give ALTTABME community cutting edge tech while maintaining the “on the couch with a beer in the comfort of your own home” feel. The contributions we receive from the community keep with this philosophy.
ALTTABME has a wonderful group of admins, reporters, bloggers, and moderators that ensure our mission statement stays true. We are always looking for talented individuals who want to help with the community, so if you want to play a bigger role please feel free to contact us below!
Pull up a chair, grab a beer and enjoy your stay!
Rules and Guidelines
Here is our policy on “Drama”: Everyone gets a chance to recognize their fuck up, talk to the person, and work it out on their own. We are all adults and expect everyone to behave as such. No “he said, she said”s. However, if the conflict cannot be resolved independently, the site’s admins and officers are always available to help mediate, so please reach out to them. We understand this happens. But keep in mind that we are not the hands of God; if we as officers wanted to take that path, we would keep our distance and act all holier than thou, and probably wouldn’t have days of naked chat roulette with everyone. But we want YOU as family, too.
So basically, handle yo shit.
We have used this methodology since we first made this site many years ago and as you can see through the relationships of the core members, we are good friends in-game and in real life. This is what we hope for everyone who joins our family.
We will not be changing our policies, so please respect one another. We come here to unwind from our daily lives, so make a conscious effort to be nice to one another. We will all jab and poke fun at one another, and members of this site are REQUIRED to have a thicker skin, but we have always believed that it is because we don’t want you to filter who you are, your opinions, and thoughts.
Just remember we didn’t get a viral video from 50+ Charr arguing on Vent. We got it for HAVING FUN.
“We are men and women of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.” – Everett Dirksez

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY:
There are very few things that we do not tolerate on this site. We all joke around and we enjoy good company (you!). Sadly, every now and again we must alter our procedures in order to keep order. We have a few rules that will result in immediate expulsion from the the site and any community you may have joined, in addition to making us sad pandas.
1. Any racist slurs or incredibly insulting comments referencing sexual orientation or other sensitive issues towards another member on this site or in any games that we play while representing ALTTABME, or even just in general. Yes, some of us joke around but there is always a boundary that should never be crossed. If you are repeatedly offended after asking someone to chill or knock it off, LET AN OFFICER KNOW. We will handle any situation accordingly.
There are certain terms we would strongly prefer you not use, but understand they are ingrained into the gaming culture(e.g., the word for sexual assault, fag, gay). While we do not want to censor you, we ask that you be considerate and mindful of your use of these terms, as they are don’t need to be how we portray ourselves.)
