I would like to take a moment to welcome all the new ARCers we're seeing this year:

First of all, thanks for joining. The transitory nature of university means that members come and go every semester. However, many of us stay with the club for the entirety of their university careers, some stay and attend events even after they graduate or transfer from SFU. I hope that you all find a place here and that you decide to stay with us for a long time.

That being said, I should probably describe what we do here. The Altered Reality Club (ARC) is a video/board gaming, anime/manga, comics/graphic novel, cosplay and general social club. In short, we're a bunch of people who aren't afraid to show our love of nerdy and geeky things, and like hanging out with others who believe the same. Every semester we hold a series of events both on and off campus, usually including  major parties, several table-top gaming campaigns and outings for laser tag, bowling or karaoke, among other things. In addition, starting September 22nd, we will be showing anime screenings every Thursday evening, usually followed by dinner.

We have a semi-permanent headquarters area in the Rotunda, right above SFU's main gate. Most of us gravitate there on our free time in between classes to game, discuss club business or just hang out. In most hours of any given weekday you'll most likely find at least a handful of us sitting at one of the tables near our bulletin board. We're usually a self-contained lot, and we may initially seem intimidating; we aren't. If you hear us talking about something interesting, or see us doing or discussing something you might be interested in, feel free to join in.

Anyways, I hope our club proves to be a fixture in your life on campus, and we're always looking for new members. We're a pretty numerous outfit, so you'll likely find more than a few people who share your interests. That being said, the start of fall semester is a great time to get involved. We'll have a table at Clubs Days (Sept 13th and 14th) as well as a General Meeting on the 15th and an Icebreaker party on the 20th.

That is all, Carry on.

One of those links is for "Vestibulitis symptoms". What the hell is vestibulitis? Does it come from spending too much time in vestibules? :psyduck:

You know, I was going to delete this, but then I figured "if the new members can't stomach this on a regular basis, they'd probably be better off staying away from the forums... for their own safety..."

A), what's going on with this site, and why is the spam attacks happening, again.

B) Since when did blackmarket medicine need to do this type of spam?

C) I know I'm not helping much, but if we can screw around with the sign up process, I know we can make this better?
