I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
Vingle Wants YOU To Be Honored as a Pioneer
Hello Vinglers! Within the past few months, Vingle has undergone quite a few changes in how our communities run, including the addition of features like Talk and Q&A! We know many of our older members have been waiting a long time for one particular update, and weโ€™re happy to announce it is here! Our new community government system is finally ready, with a lot of exciting changes. Be sure to update your app to experience it all! Weโ€™d like to introduce to you, the role of President! Presidentsโ€™ roles and responsibilities will be much greater than our previous Moderators, and they will have a much larger Staff to collaborate with! The Roles and Rights of Presidents: - Presidents have access to the Citizen Desk, a system that facilitates content management to check if there is spam/ads, improperly sexual or violent content or irrelevant content among cards that are submitted to your Community. For help, check out the Content Guideline!) - In the future Presidents will have the ability to create Labels, which can organize content into specific groups. For an example, check out the Labels in Japanese Anime. - Presidents will make sure the community remains a safe place for all members, by keeping an eye out for disagreements or problems between members. - In the future Presidents will have the ability to enlist the help of other members for roles such as Editor in Chief, Whiz, Host, and more! We will fully explain these roles when they are introduced :) - The first President of a community will be known as a Pioneer to mark their achievement! As an example, you can check out VingleEnglish who is the president of the Kpop community and Funny Community. Don't worry, official Vingle accounts will retire from their post to make room for Vinglers, it's just an example :) If you would like to run for President of a Vingle community, please fill out this form Further positions that will support the president and the community will be introduced, so please look forward to having lots of opportunities to participate! For the Vinglers who kept up the responsibilities of Moderators all this time, your hard work has not gone unnoticed! Youโ€™re the reason why Vingle communities are such a positive place that continues to grow. Weโ€™re excited to see how our communities thrive with the new system, and weโ€™re so happy youโ€™ll be a part of it!
