Requirements for chair persons

Greetings! I disagree with the proposal to add these requirements: <blockquote class="uncited"><div>I propose to add four new requirements for a scheduled chairperson. <ul> <li>Is gamefree.</li> <li>Is working the steps</li> <li>has a sponsor</li> <li>has been accepted by group conscience</li> </ul>...

discussion for next business meeting

I don't think the person who was sharing was speaking about moderation. (I was also in that meeting.) However, this brings up a different point: Are we allowed to point to other fellowships in our literature? Can we refer computer/video gamers who wish to try out moderation recovery strategies to a ...

the word "triggering"

When I say 'I am triggered' or 'such-and-such was triggering' I usually mean I am having an intense emotional reaction to something, and the intense emotions/feelings are extremely unpleasant to the point that I have an almost uncontrollable urge to scream, or physically act out. For example, a litt...

New name for the fellowship?

Is the name "Computer Gaming Addicts Anonymous" changing? Or was it OOMG name which might change?

When/where will this be discussed? I'd like to hear what others have to say, and might have something to contribute myself.

thanks,
Linda

Reading the steps and traditions at meetings

Hi ADH From my perspective, the 12 steps are only <strong>part</strong> of recovery, they are not the whole. I don't think I would still be moving forward in recovery and would still be here at CGAA if it were not also for twelve traditions, the principles, and being in fellowship with other members...

two new agenda items

Hi Scott, I believe that last night's 10PM meeting was held in the Zoom meeting room because there was a problem with Mumble. Zoom seems to me to be a bit more complicated than Mumble (my take on it, anyway). Since I've already learned a tiny bit about leading a Zoom meeting, it's more comfortable f...

Starting in Fall 2020, could we stop changing meeting times for Daylight Saving Time changes?

We have a lot of members around the globe. I found the switch of our meetings from 1:30pm EDT to 2:30 EDT mind-boggling confusing this spring. I keep showing up at the wrong time. No doubt by the time I get it right and start showing up at 2:30pm, the meeting will probably be back to 1:30 pm and I'l...

List of current face-to-face CGAA meetings - where is it?

Hi people! I have a request for CGAA as a whole. It's possible this needs to be taken up at the next CGAA GSC meeting, but I'm not 100% it is necessary. Could there be some combination of: <ol> <li>a shared spreadsheet (Google Drive or a similar cloud drive)</li> <li>a pinned post in Face to Face Me...

New Forum Research Thread

Hi Morgan, This is a project I'd like to help with. I do not have a lot of time at the moment, maybe two hours a week, but hey, better than nothing. I have a SiteGround account and I can set up different self-hosted solutions, provided they do not require "sudo" (root/super user) permissions. This i...
