In need of a new wallpaper for your desktop?
As well as the work being done on the Shattered Star timeline I posted about last week (thanks to all who have helped with that so far!), I've also been busy designing a new SSX wallpaper on the side.

In preparation for our 10th anniversary next year and finally continuing with our original plans to restore, preserve and show off our history, a group wide project has been initiated to gather as much information, dates and events as possible in order to create a complete and detailed timeline of our history for the main site.
This timeline will date back all the way to 1997 with the founding of the Shattered Star Confederation all the way to 2014 with the SSX's 10th Anniversary, on which day the history timeline page itself will go live.

The time has come around once again as we reach the end of our yearly SSX Arbiter Elections.
Thanks once more to Messiah for serving us this last year, to the other nominees and of course to everyone else here who took the time to drop by and nominate and/or cast their vote.
Congratulations and best of luck to SL33PY, who won this years vote. It is his first time in the position of Arbiter and will serve from now until this time next year when we will not only start the election process all over again (unless things change) but we will also be marking the 10th Anniversary of the Shattered Star eXiles too.

As with every September we are currently going through the process of electing our Arbiter for the next year. Nominations have already been underway for the last couple of weeks but you still have time to nominate if you have someone in mind who isn't already on the list, please note though that nominations are due to end later today so please be quick about it. Nominee posts and the final Arbiter selection vote will follow shortly so be sure to keep an eye on our members forum for those too.
Thanks go to Messiah for serving this past year (and possibly again) and good luck to everyone else on the ballot too!

So, we're now into 2013 with a fantastic looking year ahead for us gamers. 2012 proved to be surprisingly good for gaming too though with releases like the awesome Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, Telltale's The Walking Dead & the spectacular indie title; Mark of the Ninja just to name a few of my personal favourites.
Here's your chance to grab a free copy of one of 2012s other gaming highlights - Sleeping Dogs on PC.
Please see this thread for further details on how to enter.
Good luck, have fun & Happy New Year!

Today, do you consider yourself to be Exiled from anything?
What did Exiles mean for you when you joined and what does it mean for you now?
Can a name mean whatever you want it to mean? Regardless of how we came to choose it?
Do you believe the Exiles name is still representative of who we are as a group?
What is our identity? Who are we today?
These are just some of the questions the group has been discussing in regards to whether the Shattered Star should continue to be known as "Exiles" anymore.
As to be expected many of us have strong opinions on what we believe, others don't hold as much meaning to the name and some aren't too fussed whether we remove it or not.
Just to be clear as well. These talks have nothing to do with the "Shattered Star" part of our name. This will always remain. This discussion is simply regarding the "Exiles" tag.
What do you think? Come and share your thoughts in our "Exiles" discussion and poll thread.
-Poll will run until Oct 6th

Nominations and voting for this years Arbiter elections are now underway.
Like previous elections we have started by opening up the nominations process for members to vote for up to 2 other members they would like to elect as the new Arbiter of the SSX. Once a member has received 2 nominations their name will be added to the ballot (unless they wish to withdraw) and no further nominations for that person are needed or counted.
Once the nominations process has ended each of the candidates will have the opportunity to make a post on why you should or shouldn't vote for them and a poll will go live for members of the community to finally vote for 1 candidate of their choosing. The person with the most votes will then takeover (or remain) as our Arbiter until September 2013 when we'll begin this process once again.
You can find this years nominations thread here. Thanks for participating!
We choose to be different.
We refuse to play unfairly against others.
We refuse to grief other players.
We never forget it's just a game.
We want to be a part of a group where friendship and fun come first.
We are proud of who we are.
