SimmingHub and its parent charity The New Universes Project now accept donations through AmazonSmile. More information is below in a message from our Operations Administrator. If you have questions please contact the TNU Project’s Administrative Office.
TNU’s charitable foundation now exists on AmazonSmile. This means that you can buy things on Amazon and have part of your purchase donated to the charity. All you have to do is sign up at smile.amazon.com and select our organization then shop through smile.amazon.com as you normally would. Amazon will handle the donations and backend.
You may ask why this is being posted here; domains and server overhead cost money. The conventions that are ran are entirely volunteer based and TNU covers the cost of domains, hosting and various administrative costs that come up through the development of events; by helping you assist us in covering the costs associated with running these operations so that they can continue on into the future well beyond what any specific volunteer or staff member alone could do on their own.
A SciWorld for the ages! Where do I even begin? With some of the most diverse topics & panels I’ve ever seen, great ideas & comments from the audience, and a trivia event that felt more like a shark feeding frenzy, this SciWorld had it all. I haven’t even mentioned the hilarious opening ceremony video yet; thank you Charles and the team for that. If you missed SciWorld, we look forwarding to seeing you at FallFest, which will happen sometime later this year. Both events will be held in this discord server moving forward.
Now that TNU Project‘s SimmingHub has officially assumed the management & administration of SciWorld & FallFest with the completion of our first convention, I would like to personally thank Ongoing Worlds and Charles Star for sponsoring the last three SciWorlds and all 10 FallFests. Your service to the community is much appreciated and we hope to live up to the ideals you championed. On behalf of the Ongoing Worlds Board of Advisors and the SimmingHub Organizing Committee it is also an honor of mine to bestow some awards to members of the community, without whom this event would not have been possible.
Aurther Winters is awarded the OWCH
Aurther Winters of Independence Fleet is hereby awarded the Ongoing Worlds Community Honor (OWCH) for service as chair of the 2021 SciWorld Online Convention. This year’s SciWorld was a complete success in all facets: attendance, content, and energy. Thanks to Aurther’s superior leadership and organizational talents, his club and the entire community came together to create a once-in-a-lifetime event that SciWorld participants will remember for years to come. He put together a top-notch schedule and ensured a smooth second-to-none festival from start to finish. On behalf of the Ongoing Worlds Board of Advisors, SimmingHub Organizing Committee and role players across the net, thank you, Aurther, for a job well done!
Marie T is also awarded the OWCH
Marie T is also awarded the Ongoing Worlds Community Honor (OWCH) for service in support of the 2021 SciWorld Online Convention. Anyone who attended knows that Marie played an integral role in making SciWorld XIX the unique success that it was. Her creative drive and organizational skills were invaluable. In addition, her efforts significantly aided in transition of FallFest and SciWorld management from Ongoing Worlds to TNU Project. Thank you and well done, Marie.
We are happy to announce a date for SciWorld 2021. It has been scheduled for Saturday, June 12th 2021 at 11:30 AM Eastern. It will be occurring on Discord as is common for events now. It is hosted by Pegasus Fleet and Independence Fleet this year. Panel sign ups are being handled on Discord this year as a trial to see if this works for future events.

Stay tuned for further updates from us as we publish the page for this event coming in a little over a month and a half.
