Yes, come join us!

What are Sixcoins?

They are the currency in the Discord server. You can use them to buy things in the store as well play games.

Do you have contests?

We will from time to time.

Do I have to participate in activities?

No, and it’s no different from any other discord server in this regard.

  • You can join, chill and will not be bothered.
  • The activities are there for those who want to play games, socialize and etc.
  • There is something for everyone in our server and if not then we will get it within reason.

When will work on the Discord server be finished?

Probably never! Like this website or anything else that we create it will only evolve over time.

YouTube

Will you be giving away prizes during a Youtube Stream?

There are no plans for a contest during a YouTube stream at this time.

Is the YouTube Stream going to be the same as the Twitch Stream?

No! In fact, YouTube will host my gaming videos and the streams will be my personal life with my wife, kids and friends. Twitch will be all about gaming. In conclusion, it is all about community.

Membership

Can I join this community if I am already in a clan?

You sure can and it will not change you’re clan membership either.

Why do I need an account?

This website is about gaming and a community of mature gamers. I want everyone to have a place to come and hang out, make friends and play games together. Of course, I want you to watch my streams but this community is about you too!

Here are other benefits:

  • It’s free!
  • You can promote your YouTube, Twitch.TV channels and social links on your profile!
  • You will always have VIP status on the upcoming game servers.
  • We talk about the 70s, 80s, and even the 90s! Keeping it Old School!
  • Younger New School Gamers are welcome! Perhaps you will learn something.
  • You could make a friend who will Game On with you wherever you go!
  • You will now be a voice of this small community that could make changes concerning this community in the future!

SixaraTM

Any notable old school games you have played in the past?

Yes! Many, in fact. If we are talking between 1995-2005, well:

Did you ever play a game like WOW?

I played Ultima Online in 1997 and started the first day all the servers opened. I still remember my first hour in UO, I was chased to a ship and E-bolted/robbed by another player. lol Fun Times!

Do you have a voiceover demo?

I do, you can listen to it here.

Do you play console games?

No.

What is your all time favorite game?

My all time favorite game would be System Shock 1. The graphics were not the greatest but the story was intense.  It is still available to play.

What kind of Voiceover do you record?

I focus on voicemails and have discovered that people surprisingly do not like to record their own voice.

What happened to you in the last 2 years? Why did you vanish?

Long story short? Life. Kid on the way and a ton of other stuff that makes me no different from the next person.

Content Creation

Would you be interested in collaborating?

I welcome collaborating with other Creators. Hit me up and say hello!

Twitch Channel

Do you Host Giveaways or Contests?

Yes!

I will be giving away Steam or other platform gaming keys randomly.

The rules for the giveaway (if you really want to be bored) can be found in section 19 of our TOS.

If you skip reading the TOS then here are the minimum requirements to participate:

  • Must reside in the United States of America

I do not make these up as these are compliant with Twitch.TV and Florida local law in the USA.

All giveaways are Free to Enter!

Twitch.TV does not endorse our promotions and is not responsible for them. 

What are the bot commands?

The bot commands can be found living on this page.

When do I become a regular of the channel?

Come daily or often. Participate and let’s all get to know each other. That is the easiest way to get regular status.

What kind of prizes will you give away?

I will be giving away games via Steam. In the future I might add Origin and send Dominos pizza to you!

Randomly, during active streams.

Website Support

Member Accounts: I am having trouble with my account!

If you are experiencing any issues with your account or this website then contact me and I will help you out. Always Happy to Help! 😉

Member Profiles: How do I add my social links to my profile?

  1. Go to top right corner of website and high light your username
  2. In the drop down menu select, “profile”
  3. Look for the word “Edit” in the menu bar that sits below your photo
  4. Click on “Edit”
  5. You should now see it say “Editing ‘Details’ Profile Group”
  6. Below that you will see a menu that says “Social Media.”
  7. Click on “Social Media”
  8. You will now see link place holders with the social network name and can fill these out.

Here is an example:

New Accounts: When trying to register on the website It appears that I already have an account?

More than likely you were a member of the old SixaraTM Gaming website and your account was migrated.

  1. Hover over the light green person in the top right corner of the website
  2. Click on lost password in that drop down
  3. Enter your email address for the user or your most common gaming username you would have used
  4. Follow directions and check your email

New Accounts: My account was migrated but I do not remember my username or email!

No problem, let me know and I will look up your info. I will delete the account in question and you can re-register on the website or I will gladly create your new account myself. 🙂

New Accounts: I clicked the activation link in the email and it shows me a key?

Right below that key just click, “Activate” and you’re all set. This is a by design last step to take that makes sure you’re human.

Login Issues: I tried to login and was blocked!

My apologies. The firewall is still being tweaked and adjusted to be much more lax for valid members. For a faster response Join our Discord channel and I’ll fix the issue immediately.

Registration: My email keeps getting rejected?

Our system automatically rejects disposable email services. The reason why? Spammer bots love these services and sign up by the hundreds! Try using a well known service such as Gmail etc?

Game Servers

How can I get help for problems on a game server?

Contact me directly on Steam or Join our Discord.

We will gladly help you with whatever issue you may be experiencing.

(In the future we will have forums for this too)

Will there be more servers?

Yes, and we are in the process of adding them.

Your game server sucks!

I regret you feel that way. 🙁

Join our Discord and tell me what I can do to make it more entertaining?

Feedback is never personal and always welcome.

Your game server is amazing!

Thank you! This is what we want and that is for you to have a good time. This kind of feedback continues to secure that particular servers’ funding and future with SixaraTM Gaming.

Do admins play on the servers?

Sometimes. But, not all the time. Although we do watch from a console. The server is there for you and your friends. We never interfere with your gameplay unless we are called upon to help you in some way.

How do I review a link?

That function is only available to admins at the moment and not implemented for non-admin users. Remember, the directory is in Beta and this is one feature I will look to add in the future.

Why are there not enough sub categories?

The Gaming Links Index is in a Beta phase. So, more Categories/Subcategories will be added and updated over time.

How often are links added?

Often.

What is the directories purpose?

To give Gamers a place to discover and find links to gaming websites they might not have visited in the past.
