Autism Awareness Month event type of thing

Since I’m applying for Helper in December 2022, And Hoping to Be the 1st Hive staff with Autism, i would like an Autism awareness month event (maybe from March 26th- April 3rd 2023 since April 2nd is Autism awareness day)

Like decorate the Hub with autism symbols
Maybe a hat With a Blue puzzle piece
Or a costume with a shirt that says Autism speaks

This will mean a lot to me :slight_smile:

Pretty sure there has been a staff member with autism before, I could be wrong. Best of luck to hopefully becoming a helper!
Idk about a month, but for sure a cosmetic would be awesome!!

Idk about an entire hub
But a hubtitle , or even better a monthly costume themed around autism awareness would be cool

Oh that would be such a nice thing to see. I hope Hive does something like that. They’re really good already at considering the audience of their players, like the Chinese/Lunar New Year theme in January, as an example.

For costume, Autism Axolotl. The hubtitle could be Autism Speaks like on the shirt it would wear and avatar would be the blue puzzle piece thing you said

As a person who has High functioning Autism This would mean a lot to me but I Personally Think this idea shouldn’t be Accepted in my opinion Because autism speaks is a Greedy company who just wants money

Ohhh I actually remembered seeing a video about that a long time ago, you’re absolutely right there are so many companies? Corporations? Organizations out there that all claim to be helping Autism, and maybe at one point they did but are only in it for money now.

I really don’t want to start any controversy, as I am not a representative of the autism community, but yes please please do the research for yourself and make sure your supporting organizations with genuine intentions.

:arrow_up: This was the video I had seen that (I think?) did a good job of explaining the problem with how autism is represented today.

(I’ll delete this comment if I posted something controversial or inaccurate, by the way)

as someone also on the spectrum to an extent, autism speaks is awful, and the blue puzzle piece represents them so id rather have the rainbow infinity instead (which is another way of representing people with autism)

Autistic stuff so kids can understand plus ik autisum its js some people arent patient wit people on the spectrum and idk y

seconding what omega said, autism speaks is a terrible organization, if any symbol were to be used it should be the rainbow infinity sign, or just don’t suggest that kind of representation at all where it doesn’t make sense to have it
also

chances are you probably wouldn’t be the first staff member with autism, there are a lot more autistic and neurodivergent folks than you’d think, mostly bc not everyone feels the need to put it out there publicly, since it isn’t anyone’s business whether you have a mental disorder or not.
especially when you’re in a position to potentially be discriminated against.
it’s something you really only share with family or close friends you trust not to screw you over regarding it.

I think this is a very good idea the staff cant deny you wishes, surely?
Also good luck on your application!
Tips:
100+ games played on every gamemode (why I havent been accepted)
Be nice and polite
Be Truthful

Also maybe this should be decorated in the arcade not main hub why? Because it would better in arcade for decorations!

Oh from the other posts i know there are more worst companies for autism like avichable or proud moments im going to tell you right now that there are predators in achiveable bevior strategies! Plus the staff in proud moments dont even listin to you and so this should prove that autism speaks is not the worst company ever and im not sayin autsim speaks is good eaither u guys r right that some organizations want some money and pretend to help autism but other then that stick wit my idea decoate some symbols in the arcade hub

Great suggestion Pizzaboy! As someone with autism, I do think they should add something that

As a 3d artist, I’m going to model a autism awareness hat, and a hope you all like it :smile:
