To describe Project Bluestreak or BLS, we begin by stating what we are not. We are not a game(s)-specific group although a number of our members do play together. We are not an immature, toxic, childish, or drama seeking/feeding group. And if that perhaps is what you happen to be seeking, please join one of those because there are thousands of those types of groups out there.
BLS is a very small primarily social group and that is by design. In an era where there tends to be a big churn of members in a typical Steam group, many of our members have been in the group for quite a while-some even since the inception of the BLS back in 2014. And our members have much diversity in age, schooling, gaming skills, career and interests. In fact, a good number of members have developed close online friendships as a result.
We have extremely high standards. Of the people that apply to become part of the group, few will actually be awarded membership in Project Bluestreak.
Project Bluestreak or ‘bls’ was formed in 2014 and originally was created for people that played Blockstorm and Blockland. A common question we get is how did the name bluestreak come about. That name came from an inspiration from watching the cartoon show Sonic the Hedgehog as a child. When Sonic would run, there seemed to be a ‘bluestreak’ behind him, apparently from running so fast. Some of the original founding members of bls are still members in good standing today.
If you are interested in joining BLS, the process is not quite like joining the many other Steam groups out there.
The first step is to complete an application. Don’t worry, you don’t need to know calculus or algebra, or how many planets there are in the solar system. Rather, just answer the few application questions honestly, and with as much detail as you care to provide. We are really trying to know about you, and not how many questions you can get correct on a school exam for instance.
Within a few days after you submit the application, you will be contacted by a bls staff member who will contact you for an interview. The purpose of the interview is just to try and get to know you a little better. You don’t need to get dressed up, or brush you teeth for the interview. The process will take between 5-15 minutes where a staff member will ask a few open-ended questions about you, your reasons for wanting to be a bls member, and any expectations you may have regarding the group.
The final step is a staff vote. All applicants for bls must recieve an affirmative vote from the majority of staff members, The vote is usualaly conducted in a closed staff meeting. Either way, you will be notified of the result of the vote. Good luck!
