  10. Hello fans of the show. I like to start off with an apology for the delay with episode 35. Due to a few unforseen circumstances we were unable to record at our regularly scheduled time. Sparky has been without Internet access for over a week, and here in the San Francisco bay we had temperatures in excess of 100°. Keep in mind there is no air conditioning in the San Francisco Bay area. With the two headquarters offline it didn't make sense to record something half-assed. To address the lapse, we will be recording an extended show on Sunday night covering two weeks of news and more. Thank you for all your kind messages checking in on this weeks episode, it's exciting to see how many of you rely on the weekly show. Thank you for your continued support and viewership. skyFive, Edson
  11. Introducing Auto-Tags. No longer will you need to tag your content, simply select the category and submit with a descriptive title. We are all so thankful of the stories you submit to TSL, as you know we also find enjoyment in covering and discussing them in our weekly podcast ON APPROACH. Topic titles are incredibly important and thus far everyone has been great with their titles, today we're excited to take some work off your plate. Here is a perfect example: TAGGED BY USER: TAGGED BY US: skyFive -e @Moderators
  12. Today I'm happy to announce the newest addition to the Patron Flying Clubs, The Air Corps - A new way to experience military flying. Whether you like flying low and slow in a P-8A, hunting ships, or high and fast in an F-15 on QRA against an aggressor, this is the club for you. The group is predominantly geared towards fun, but there will be an element of learning involved as well. This Club is being led by none other than our resident Military aviation expert Mr. @Rob Skip. The initial plan is to host bi-weekly events, to both teach and utilize military-focused procedures in a variety of types. The majority of sorties will not be exclusive to one airframe, but instead will have a recommendation, as no-one really wants a fighter appearing on an ASW mission! All Air Corps nights will feature a theme, with some nights using programs like Tacpack and FSX@War to provide weapons and targets, although neither will ever be essential. Remember, the whole idea is to HAVE FUN! JOIN TODAY! LINK TO SOURCE:

  18. We're very excited today to announce our newest Sponsor, Slick Wick Aviation Oil! Frequent oil changes are a critical part of proper engine maintenance. TSL Mechanic "Bob" has an unlimited budget, and because of that he always goes for the very best! Award Winning Slick Wick Aviation Oil will keep you greasing those landings. We're excited to announce our partnership with Slick Wick to keep you in the skies, and hope you are too! What's this all about anyways!? Well it all starts off with a huge thank you to Sky Lounge Patron @awicker18! He recently increased his commitment by subscribing at the Sky Lounge Gold Club SPONSOR level. These supporters get a slew of creative "thank you's" that will be seen community-wide. Have a brand or product to promote? This is for you! Don't have a company but want to show your support in a creative way? We've got you covered. A proper "brand" will be created by a designer for a fictional company, we'll work with you to create this. This brand will appear in various places around the community, it could be on custom liveries, crates in planes, definitely on all our web properties, and possibly even as cargo inside the VA pireps. That's just the start really, we'll even have the ability to thank our sponsors in streams publicly and other creative ways. A huge thank you goes out to Patrons at this tier, your commitment goes a very long way in helping us move forward. Wan't more info? http://www.gamewisp.com/TheSkyLounge

  22. Hello Patrons! Once again THANK YOU for your Patronage, TSL is a growing entity and every little bit helps to get us to the next level. You have a million choices on Twitch, but chose us and for that i'm eternally grateful. This preset is my very special and personal way of extending that THANK YOU! Day is meticulously tuned, Night is beautifully tuned, and the Inside views should feel very immersive with the bright sky out the windscreen. While my daily and personal PTA Preset is very cinematic, I always had this one in the toolbox for the more realistic scenarios like product photoshoots. It's finely tuned to mimic the most realistic balance of color and contrast, like a photograph fresh out of a camera in RAW format. This is set as a milestone for all Patron tiers, when ready to fulfill it will show up on your dashboard. If you have issues accessing it, please comment below. -Edson *If you ARE a Patron, please make sure you have access to the TSL Patron Forum: http://www.theskylounge.tv/forum/19-patron-forum/ **If you AREN'T a Patron but are interested, thank you: https://gamewisp.com/theskylounge

  24. TL;DR: Patrons, We’re having a really good year so far, having recently celebrated the crossing of 4000+ followers on twitch, the growing reach of our ON APPROACH podcast on YouTube, and a successful networking trip to FlightSimCon thanks to a Sky Lounge Mogul & Patrons. We’re now in a position where we must start to align for the next stage of battle. For this we will turn to the wise words of Sun Tzu from The Art of War that state that “…there are five essentials for victory.” 1. He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. We employed this tactic from the start. When TSL spun up for the first time we knew we didn’t need to be the small fish in the big pond. By flying mostly General Aviation we stood out amongst the rest. We became the big fish in the small pond. As time progressed and our numbers moved upward, we started injecting more and more Commercial aviation. It’s beautiful that when we go live with a heavy, we do see the uptick in viewers as expected. This is only one example of us following this guideline, there are many if you look around at why we do what we do and when we do it. 2. He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. I’m proud at how well we excel at this, we’re a TRULY diverse community with simmers at ALL levels of experience. From real-world aviators, to pro simmers, to new to sim gamers. THIS IS SOOOOO HARD TO ACCOMPLISH! The value of each Patron to the overall community is equal as a solid force and we need to continue this way. We succeed at this because we have been able to grow by meshing and integrating people of all cultures, knowledge levels, etc without splitting up into weird little subsets or cliques, even with Patron tiers. Asking for help, bouncing ideas off KEY people based on their strengths and abilities, or general brainstorming is easy because I feel each of you fairly well. Regardless of our numbers, I promise to continue giving each of you the attention needed to really learn your strengths. I love nothing more than coming up with creative ways you all can help this airship on the voyage to success. 3. He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. I’m excited about announcements in this realm. Over time I’ve identified a team of folks that are in-line with ”the spirit of the lounge”. Our hosts are a given, but over the past few months you may have noticed the formation of the TSL Ops group. Mr. Bucnatic60, Aviator Moser, and most recently Smurf John make up this group of “moderators” that keep the peace and function as points of contact for any issue that may arise in the lounge. I use the term “moderators” in quotes because the purpose they serve is so much more than a standard mod, yet with much less visibility as far as a position of power goes. A little about them… Bucnatic60, this guy sleeps with one eye open, he’s quick to spot things and has the real-world business sense to approach situations and decisions with a fair yet business influenced balance. Buc doesn’t hold back when it comes to feedback my way, he stands his ground to the very end, often coming up with a unique solution completely out of left field. He has taken Cub Club planning under his wing and off my plate and for the extra time it’s given me to work on other things, I’m thankful. Cub Club is an integral part of Patronage, it’s a weekly “meetup” and whether you like piper cubs or not, it’s inarguably a great time, every time. AviatorMoser, keep your snake oil to yourself because you won’t fool him. Moser is super observant to small little ripples in the matrix of threads that make up our community fabric. He brings with him knowledge of FlightSim development and loves a good challenge. If he can’t help you figure something out, it will probably drive him mad until a solution is found. I have bounced the most people-sensitive topics off Moser knowing he will give me a straight shot answer. He always has “the people” in mind and has assisted in resolving very sensitive personality conflicts in the past. Talk about moderator, this guy moderates! Smurf John, was briefly tested in a host role before ultimately finding his home in the TSL Ops group. I’m pretty sure John has software running on your PC that tells him you need tech support before you ask for it because you’ll often find him in the tech channels walking people thru sim issues. Over the past few weeks John has completely taken over management of our website content. This significantly alleviated some of the management stress I had on my plate. You may have seen all the well deserved praise he’s received in the “Ultimate v4 List”. Managing the site is a 24hr job and somehow I never wake up to threads to approve, or content to remove, does this guy sleep!? As you can see, the team I’ve built functions within us, not over us. This sets us apart from everywhere else and I hope that shows, nobody wants us to become AVSIM… 4. He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared. Building a brand isn’t something you make up as you go along. By planning every stage of growth and by making contingency plans for every possible eventuality we’ve secured solid ground. Getting the traction TSL has is no easy feat. so everyone pat yourselves on the back, YOU are The Sky Lounge. Prepared from day 0, we’ve built out everything I said we would, and I’m excited for what is to come… Twitch.tv/TheSkyLounge : A true team driven Twitch channel, our hosts are ALL The Sky Lounge, they don’t compete against each other like other teams do, they are one, and represent one. This has many benefits that go beyond the surface level stuff like total airtime. Quality over Quantity has been our guideline here, we’ve stuck to it and enjoy having quality viewers, think Boutique vs. Walmart. *Public Facing TheSkyLounge.tv : A community driven website where people of all simulator flavors coexist. Whether you fly Xplane or P3d, the passion for aviation all comes together at this hub. Since day 1 the goal of the website was to generate content for a news show, have you seen the latest episode of ON APPROACH yet!? *Public Facing Twitter.com/TheSkyLoungeTV : Mirroring data from the website and connecting us with brands and developers, Twitter has proved to be an integral part of our viral cycle. *Public Facing Facebook.com/TheSkyLoungeTV : Mirroring data from the website functioning as an effective direct contact tool. Many of our connections have been made by receiving messages on Facebook. Additionally we’ve started to upload episodes of ON APPROACH (with a delay) to potentially reach a fresh set of eyeballs. *Public Facing Youtube.com/TheSkyLoungeTV | ON APPROACH : The latest public service to our community, and the effort of lots of initial work on the website this is the home of our weekly Video Podcast. ON APPROACH has had DIRECT impact with developers. Starting a little help from a Dovetail Games share via Twitter an influx of developers now watch the weekly series and even interact via comments or other means. We’ve done something different than anyone else, a format no one thought would be welcome, has become a disruption in the flight sim news realm. *Public Facing Discord : Discord has become the very core of the community of Patrons that make up the lounge. We have succeeded in building a very active Discord server with people live 24/7, something not even some of Twitch’s most popular Flight Sim streamers have. Our most intimate discussions happen here, whether they are about our real lives, or whether it’s asking for help like “how do i land this plane?. REAL connections happen here, our hosts are available around the clock unlike other discords where the streamers disappear once they are off the air. We always jump in for a debrief after a show, like jumping out of the F-14 onto the flight deck full of clapping people in Top Gun… *Public Facing -> *Private CHANGE ALERT! This is where it’s time to make a shift, as you can see we’ve got lots of services marked *Public Facing , enough now that we can finally turn our Discord into the ultimate Patron Perk. Starting today we will take down the billboards, roll up the red carpet, and take down the velvet ropes out front. Discord will become more of a Members Only club…if you have the card, you know where it is, if you know where it is, you can access to the party. More importantly once inside, you can rest assured that in its relaxed environment, you’re surrounded by others with the same investment in making it the very best place to hang out. There will be a lobby area for folks that stumble upon the door can land, but no longer will I ask you all to bypass your privilege to hang out in the private rooms, that was a mistake. 5. He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign. Military capacity : Check. YOU the Patrons are the force we need to keep pushing forward. Not interfered with by the sovereign. : Ungoverned by any other entity we write our own rules and do things our way, completely different than anyone else. People ask why we aren’t partnered on Twitch yet, the simple answer is we don’t want to be. WHAT!? they say, you mean if they asked, you’d say NO? Precisely. I won’t get into details as to why, but ultimately if you read #5 you see how that decision comes into play. We will continue to do things differently, to exist as our own entity, well branded and doing everything pretty much to perfection. All while connecting with people and being easily accessible to all. Discord will become our fortress, a place for our military capacity to unite, celebrate, support, laugh, cry, and get stronger. Every time we are live is a battle, every Episode of ON APPROACH we post is a battle, show your support in all the creative ways you want. Can we better enable you to represent the lounge? Yes we can. https://shop.spreadshirt.com/TheSkyLoungeTV And if you have any other creative ideas, don't hesitate to comment below! -Edson
