Hey /gghq/, long story short is I'm doing a run-down of the first year of GamerGate for the final project of one of my classes. Everything's going alright so far, and the professor is on board with the idea but I'm having trouble finding info on GG after May 2015 where the Gamergate Wiki just stops. I'd rather not use solely the Ghazi wiki as a source for four whole months, even if I've used it for a few pieces of info. I admittedly stopped paying total attention to #GG around the time the SVU episode aired but that's my bad.

Basically aside from ##GGinDC, DeepFreeze and SWJ Airplay, I need a refresher on the big happenings between May and August. Images and Links preferred, but a basic rundown works too.

Wasn't it around that time when Crash Override's timer counted down to zero, revealing that 1. it clock was timed to people's computer clocks, and 2. there was nothing planned for it, before resetting?

This works pretty darn good as a starting point. I'll probably cut some of that stuff out (Like the WebM For Retards thing) since I'm leaning more towards the representation of GamerGate in the news.

you can use the Timeline for a guide. >>308344

Various other big happenings (first use of the hashtag, Gamers are dead attackpieces, Sep 2014 MSM strike, GamesjournoPros reveal, hashtag raids, charities donated to, OP DisrespectfulNod and Baby Seal, SPJAirplay)

hypocrisies of the Lwhos and constant gamedrops from MSM and other antis can be used as well.

For news representation just look at the Gamers are Dead and the Sep 2014 blitz: HuffingtonPost live talks, MSNBC, Al Jazeera and BBC interviews with the Whos and the Pakman interviews.

There is also the organization of the SPJ awards for ethical games journalism. I don't remember the name they chose for it.
