Petition to Greg Abbott
Shut Down- Due to Covid 19
Laredoans have been dealing with the pandemic since day one, today things have gotten out of hand and we are in dire need of a shut down because people aren’t listening. Our hospitals are at full capacity, staff are having to put 2 people per room and now tents are being installed outside our hospitals to treat more patients. Our hospitals ICUs are full and people are dying everyday in our city and everyone has had enough. We understand people need to work to survive but places where people gather and don’t follow protocol should be closed because this virus is spreading by the hundreds and numbers are rising by the hundreds. If Laredoans don’t follow the protocols in place our city is going to see devastating number of deaths and infections and there NO MORE ROOM for anyone at our hospitals! Our City leaders have failed us because they aren’t putting their foots down and enforcing what needs to be enforced. Our Governor Abbott isn’t listening to the outcries of our citizens so this petition is for him to see how many people are for a SHUTDOWN immediately!! We need to stop the rising numbers and alleviate our hospitals. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!! Laredo unido jamas será vencido!!!
Petition to SONY, Microsoft, Phil Spencer, Jim Ryan
Disable purchases for all Call of Duty games that have crossplay. Attn : Sony & Microsoft
Petition to Sony & Microsoft to disable in-game purchases in their stores for all Call of Duty Games that have Crossplay until Activision issues an official statement to ensure fair play and acts on it. Fair play and fair treatment is what our community stands for, Please stand with us. Dear CEOs of Xbox & Playstation, First of all thank you for all your continuous effort in giving us amazing communities by moderating fair play and fair treatment of all players in the communities you represent. For the first time players from different platforms have united together and played side by side. Some have made new and lasting friendships and others have finally understood that we as gamers can unite and have fun and share great victories together online no matter what platform we play on. The future of crossplay looks very exciting and has bridged a gap between different gaming communities online. Unfortunately secondary security measures on the PC platform need to be in place to keep the crossplay community alive and thriving, which the developers of Activision have failed to address and are being mute about it. Until Microsoft’s Pluton (Kernel Level Security) is available on PC, the game developers are responsible to ensure security and enforcement of their products on PC via first or third party solutions. Cheating in Warzone, Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War: It is almost impossible to inject cheats on a Console as it’s a closed and encrypted platform which is constantly updated. PC however is a different story, where external websites are listing illegal programs anyone on PC can download and run to manipulate game data to give cheaters an advantage. There is a conversation with a cheat maker who makes cheats for Call of Duty all by himself, this is how easy it is to bypass their security measures for a company that makes billions. It is at an all time high right now due to the pandemic as many of them are at home due to restrictions and lockdowns. These Cheat distributors even advertise via youtube ads so people are aware that they have a product that will make them pro gamers instantly for as little as $10. Please note that all PC players are not cheaters, there are many who believe in playing fair and are against cheating and they too stand by this, however the in game store on PC is owned by Activision Blizzard so i guess we are out of luck when it would come to filing a petition to get any sort of fair treatment when it comes to protecting PC players from cheaters. While we know that the majority is the console community for Call Of Duty, disabling in-game purchases for specific crossplay titles by Activision will hurt their sales and force them into giving us an industry grade anti cheat eventually making it fair to players on all platforms such as Xbox and Playstation and PC. Every day you delay is making Activision richer and less bothered as they are meeting their daily sales targets and leaving their consumers and your communites in the dark, mentally frustrated and cheated into spending money. A youtuber by the name of badboybeaman does in depth research on cheats used by some players and streamers eventually creating awareness about cheats used to trick viewers into believing they are actually good at the game. One of his videos here explain how cheating openly on facebook has become a trend and you guessed it, it's almost always Call Of Duty Warzone. Game Breaking Bugs and Glitches. Games like Cyberpunk were taken out of store after so many in game bugs, If i was not for Cyberpunk i am pretty sure the broken integration of Black Ops Cold war into War Zone would have been in the spotlight and you guys would have removed it from the store after hearing about god awful bugs that not only broke the game and mentally disturbed the console community but also bricked a few new gen consoles costing the consumers their hard earned money and time. There are many issues still, from game crashes to undermeshing glitches, pay to win blueprints (patched after a long time) and many others that are being discovered every day by gamers. This might have been done intentionally to sell weapon blueprints, it needs to be explained and an investigation has to be opened. Abuse of Skill based matchmaking and transparency of in game data. They are covering up something big, an illegal marketing campaign via influencers perhaps? Who knows, the API been made inaccesible/hard to access by Activision now, so there is no way of knowing who is abusing their sbmm/eomm system in place. Everyone is talking about it. In general it’s not really skill based match making but Engagement Optimized Matchmaking, where the game is designed in a way to keep the player engaged for hours, very similar to how casinos work but gamers are the guinea pigs here instead. The more we play the more we are likely to spend money, specially if they give us a taste of winning via their formula of tricking people into feeling good. It's no theory, here is a patent filed by Activision that does exactly that. Link to patent Recently a website sbmmwarzone.com was able to compile data in real time via the API owned by Call Of Duty. Players could : Get the average K.D of players in their lobbies. Get alerted of potential Cheaters in their lobbies (Which every other lobby) Go lobby shopping (dip out of high level lobbies until matchmaking forces them into low skilled lobbies) to compete in kill race tournaments for money. The information was provided by popular Call Of Duty youtuber Drift0r to Activision. But instead of enhancing their security measures, implementing anti cheat and taking action against cheaters or abusers of the system (who are Call Of Duty Partners by the way) they went ahead and patched the API to reveal less data and turned every player’s profile to private. This data is readily available to Activision to act on and they still do not do anything about it unless a player has been caught live and manually reported multiple times. Lobby shopping has been going on since the game was launched, it's hard to believe that they did not know about it. They just did not know players were smart enough to figure it out. This was probably the fastest patch to go out in the history of patches in Call Of Duty. They seem to have addressed this first because of how they could be potentially exposed for fraud as some content creators were abusing this left right and center to create an impression of high kill games and claim "World Record" fooling their community into thinking warzone was the game for pros when in fact everything is manipulated right from the top to push sales and the sbmmwarzone web app would expose them resulting in tanking future sales. More content creators, more views equals free publicity. It's a win win for both the Content Creator and Activision. This was the patched faster than the Broken DMR Rifle, The Stim Glitch, The Invisibility Glitch, Loadout Glitch and a few more which the community was begging Activision to address and they were sitting on some of them for for weeks. Few videos from well known content creators for Call of Duty to sum up the issue of transparency and promoting cheating in Activision’s crossplay enabled Call Of Duty (Cold War and Warzone) : Jgod Drift0r TheXclusiveAce The level of corruption that this publisher has shown is beyond anything i have seen in the gaming industry in the last 20 years and they are getting away with this. I am still surprised as to how this company is standing and is not sued to the ground. I do understand a business model for any game publisher means generating good numbers, but deceiving their customers via the influencers is not an ethical way of doing it and is not considered legal. This is our community and we stand by what is right. These publishers would not be what they are today if it was not for us. We do know that Sony & Microsoft stand by fairness in all levels too. Please show them how it’s done in your world. Despite numerous efforts from the community, Activision has chosen to remain silent. Their community manager fails to interact with the community by not acknowleging the community feedback, not reassuring the disheartened community, who are customers by the way. Instead it's just tweets regarding politics and just retweets of patches from devs which the community begs activision to implement directly. The last time i checked a community manager is supposed to have a much more engaging role. This has been goin on for almost a year now it’s been an uphill battle with the game developers and publishers to address the problems above. They should understand that they have a responsibility towards a product that is been sold. It's called " After Sales Service " which every paying customer is entitled to unless mentioned otherwise in contract. Microsoft, Google, Sony, Apple spend millions to make their customers feel right at home. All we want is Activision to fix their game and give us an Industry grade anti cheat. Is that so hard to do? This also goes out to all our fellow gamers who believe in fair play no matter what platform you are on. PC, Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo, Mobile. If you see this open letter, Please support and share. Every one of you in the gaming community can unite and make a difference. Gaming is a billion dollar industry and yes it can be used to exploit us. Beware and don't let game publishers like this stomp on your rights as a consumer. For those of you wondering if i am a real person my Twitter handle is @StarkyGuy, feel free to roast my open letter if you think i am wrong. Stay safe. -Sav
Petition to City of Corcoran
Please take the time to read my brothers post below and sign this petition. My brother fundraised the money to purchase Zeke for the Corcoran Police Department. After 3 years together my brother has made the decision to retire due to his mental illness. It is heartbreaking to me that not only my brother is losing his partner in crime, but Zeke is losing his world. I see Zeke with Cody, and it is a bond that should not be broken. Codys post-Thank you to the Corcoran Police Department. After 4.5 years of service, and 3 as K9, as well as previous service with Stearns County, I medically retired due to PTSD which caused suicidal ideation and attempts. Prior to my employment there was not a K9 unit, but I was able to fully fundraise, and implement a K9 unit. Thank you to the Shoulak Family foundation, the Northwest Area Jaycees, the Corcoran Lions, McDonough K9 and all others that have supported us. One of the conditions of my retirement recommended by my therapist was to retire my K9 partner, Zeke, to live out his time with me as a service animal. Understand the bond between man and dog after 3 years of being together 24/7 and going into the worst of the worst side by side. As if the job didn't take enough from me, the Chief called today and said they will be taking Zeke from me and reassigning him. Mind you, I was done December 17th and have had him since with no communication from the city. Thanks for the partnership my eekey boy. Be safe buddy. I love you.
Petition to Episode Interactive
Remove Gem Choices From Community Stories
Attention episode community readers/authors It has come to everyone’s attention recently that Episode is making community authors put gems choices in their stories which have never included them before. They are making them do this in order for their stories to have better rankings which is very unfair for both the reads who aren’t able to afford the gems and the authors who don’t like putting gems in their stories. This is a problem for many readers and authors because most readers aren’t able to afford these gems which make them very unmotivated to continue reading the authors stories which results in authors loosing many readers. The worlds current situation makes people unable to afford gems right now and most readers an under the age of 18 and they don’t have access to a credit card for them to use. Many of their guardians also won’t allow them to make these purchases either. In order for episode to give use a least an answer for these sudden changes we need to speak up and have a voice and by signing this petition it will help us to hopefully be able to get episodes attention and hopefully get an answer from them or a positive change from them. The change that we are mostly looking for is for episode to not force authors to include gems in their community stories or that the number of gems the authors get won’t affect their ranking scores and their possibilities to be on trending. We as a community can do this and have a voice together. So help us get the answers we want by signing this petition if you agree.
Petition to Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, CDC
Raise Age on Mask Requirements and Allow Medical Exemption for Children on Airlines
It is no secret we are in the middle of a pandemic and masks are a required worldwide. This has effected travel across the world and although airlines have accommodated to keep their customers traveling, they are doing a disservice to families and children with special needs. I have one child with a medical condition where masks actually hinder his airways, making it almost impossible for us to travel on any airline at the moment. I believe children with medical conditions should receive exemption from wearing a mask. Especially during the duration of the flight. I have friends who have autistic children or children with sensory issues and masks are a BIG trigger for them. Most can travel in peace, but add something covering their face for 2-4 hours and it creates panic and elimination of travel for many families. It is discrimination against those individuals to require them to wear a mask or not travel at all. This is a condition they cannot help and it should not be used against them in a delicate time. Lastly, the age requirement starting at age 2 is very difficult for many children. We have seen videos of parents trying to force their child to wear one only to be thrown off the plane because their 2 year old cannot comply. As a mother, I know it's hard enough to keep shoes on a 2 year old, let alone a mask for hours. The age requirement should be raised. Two years is too young and it eliminates travel for many families. Nobody is arguing that we shouldn't wear masks but the requirements that have been put on children is unfair and needs to change. I am asking that the airlines reconsider and take into account ALL children and what's best for ALL their travelers. I am asking that the CDC also consider this petition and hear our plea to accommodate special needs children and kids in general.
