๐ŸคณHiveFest VI Selfie Insanity + Quick Witness Update๐Ÿ˜œ

One thing I absolutely love to do is take pictures. Especially - with other faces in awesome places! Some of you may be aware that Hive Fest 6 was this past weekend and it was a fairly interesting return to AltSpace VR. I dropped the ball in getting my badge as this time of year is far more hectic in my personal life than most. From Halloween through until the middle of January, I cater to a dozen birthdays, 3 nationally recognized federal holidays, 6 other holidays, 2 anniversaries and on top of all that - it's hunting season! So, I tend to stay pretty busy.

I did however, manage to make it over to Hive Fest for a few hours, chitty chatty with some peoples and listen to a few presentations. I checked out the landscapes and played 'throw the funny #splinterlands promo sausage logs at random people'. But above all, I got to take some pictures! The first person I ran into was:

Witty2021-11-13_11-46-45.pngarcange.png
I honestly have no clue who that is on the other log by the campfire. If you read this, you had a cool hat man!What Hive Fest would be complete without getting a shot with my selfie partner in crime - @arcange!

Was pretty fun seeing so many familiar 'faces' enjoying whatever it is they were at the time. There was some Pizza talk, web 3.0, and a new game! I wasn't able to mint any @punksonhive, but you can go buy some of the pixelated punks on their market. There was #splinterlands talk with @yabapmatt and even #risingstar made an appearance. @blocktrades and @howo got a standing ovation for core development updates and all kinds of other games showed up. @jarvie spun us a tale on @peakd itself and growth of Hive. Well done @roelandp, another success.

Switch Gears

Bit of a witness update here for you as I will be upgrading the server's memory at the request of @privex, there may be a slight downtime. Also, to let you know what I've been doing in, on and around Hive itself. Honestly, I've been playing a lot of #splinterlands, HA! Also am a supporter of any gaming that wants to be here. Most notably, the up and coming @psyberx game. Do you all remember how long it took for Splinterlands to become what it is? And how much potential it still has? That's how I'm looking at #psyberx. They are new to Hive so still are learning how it works but I want you to keep this in mind - the Action and FPS (first person shooter) games have a massive following, almost 5 times that of the card players and RPG (role playing games) genre.

Recently, I have gotten into #wine. @roger.remix has resurfaced and @theguruasia is revamping all kinds of good things over there. You can expect to see some kind of coordination with them in the coming months. One of those things being resituated is my #PIMP token, and what it will be used for. I hope everyone has been hodling those ;)

I still run @thealliance and our little family is still growing together. We've had several new dolphins, a few orca and whales come up through our ranks lately. But, moreover, we are still honing new Hive users into focused dreamers.

I support all kinds of communities and really all anyone has to do is ask if they need help. I may not be the biggest whale, but I can blow some good sized bubbles these days. Most of my efforts seem to be centered around the #spanish community, which is odd because - I don't even speak Spanish. But, with people like @latino.romano, @marybellrg and @elizabeths14 that take the time to translate things for me - I am able to help many others see success here on Hive.

Aside from that, my favorite curation project has returned! Yes, #PYPT - Pimp Your Post Thursdays - is back with @shadowspub! I met several of you because of that show and imagine I will continue to meet more like newbies @lauralauze and gamer @lord-elric. Most of all, I'm out here being me and I hope you - REMEMBER TO BE YOU! I always am, even if I don't have any punks on my team.

Hivefest was great, but I didn't get to see everyone I knew there. We need some more, informal events that could also be in AltspaceVR.

Hey! I cant believe I missed you! At least you got the selfie with me :) Thank you so much for that.
This time I was mostly on stage listening, but as @steevc said, it would be nice to have some informal events where we ll have more opportunities to discuss with one another :)
And since I missed you and could not give you a !BEER here is some !LUV also from me, all the way from Greece!

We have both. My family is huge, but it's clicky. Tight groups within the fam and all that do things together. Like typically, aside from my kids, it's my sis, parents one aunt and a cousin that are real tight.

I thank you for being in one of the most beautiful #hive families (@thealliance), more than a community, a true family. It's beautiful to feel every day the support and affection of this family led by you. Thank you very much, I feel very very happy and grateful.

You don't have to be a whale to be cool and you are. Full of charisma, joy, good vibes and love to give to those around you.

Thank you for teaching me the value of friendship and true support on this journey. I love that you had fun at HiveFest, you are someone who builds #hivepositively every day with your actions and of course, you had to be there. And of course, Pimp is love and a fixed tag that fills my posts with joy. Keep counting on me from here to infinity! Hugs to you, dear friend. A thousand thanks for the honor of the mention. You are a person who cares about helping many by reaching out your hand. Thanks for being so great! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜šโœจโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

PD: and even if you don't speak Spanish, we already consider you Hispanic hahaha thanks for being part of us. Another hug for you!๐Ÿค—

Of all the publications on the hivefest yours is the most ingenious and the one that has stolen my heart, as well as your surprise selfies.

I loved seeing all those Hivers, I want to thank you for all your work in Hive and also for giving your support in such a sincere and selfless way, reading the comments you have received I feel a lump in my throat with emotion. I send you a big hug @enginewitty ๐Ÿค—

It looks like you had an awesome time :)

Exactly what is the Alliance? I see the tag around, but am unsure when it's appropriate to use it. Sorry, I still don't know a quarter of everything I should ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

What is the PIMP Token? I don't think I've ever come across it :( ...

The Alliance is a small 'family' of people that grow together. We have no strict rules like size of HP or political affiliation. We try to accept everyone and spread the love. Maybe @dreemsteem or @thekittygirl could give you their opinions.

As for PIMP, it is a token I started a while back, it has stakability and a front-end that I curate fairly regularly. For all the PIMPs out there ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Awesome post! Loved all the "pics" from HIVE FEST! And I'm going to check out your new game suggestion, having learned that there's nothing better than getting in something on the ground floor (Splinterlands!) and seeing it succeed.
Absolutely love that Chaos gif at the end - can I borrow it??

You've definitely got some good AltSpace VR selfie game. I tried several times to figure out how to take a decent selfie with others and it was comical at best.

I kept trying to figure out how to take a selfie so the background could be seen well and not have me blocking anything. When I tried to take a selfie with @asynckronism I wound up with a lot of background and very little of him in the shot. He was much better at getting us both in the shot. Funny because IRL, I think my selfie game is decent. On AltSpace VR, it was a totally different result.

Overall, I really enjoyed being with fellow Hivers from around the world. Listening to speakers and wandering around trying out different things in VR. I went to a few portals to see what trouble I could get into. I went to space, USS Valkyrie, and a movie theater which was an interesting experience. A good time overall.
