Ranks and Recruitment changes

After many hours of discussion amongst staff, it became pretty apparent that we weren’t really happy with how recruitment had changed since the addition of the recruitment application tool. To a lot of us, it seemed like it removed that community involvement that we were fond of and it made it feel like your vote/voice wasn’t really that impactful, so without further ado here is our new recruitment:

Recruitment:

 

  • No community or staff vote
  • 10 referrals, 2 must be from staff
  • 100 hours playtime on any of our game servers
  • 50 posts on our forums
  • Forum account must be at least 1 month old
  • No bans of 30 minutes or more within the past 3 months of submitting your application.

 

Under these new recruitment changes, all members giving referrals must give a detailed explanation as to why the member deserves entry into the community, failing to do so will result in the referral being removed from the application.

 

If it wasn’t obvious the recruitment tool will no longer be used and we will go back to the old way of recruits posting their own recruitment threads.

 

Ranks:

 

With these recruitment changes, we would also like to change up the way our ranks are structured. The removal of a community vote has worried some people, mostly due to our tenured rank granting some form of admin powers within our servers. To ensure that we do not misplace these admin powers we have decided that the addition of staff vote to all rank applications is a requirement moving forward. All rank applications must reach an 8/8 staff vote before they can be accepted. All staff members votes are equal to 1, so a yes=(+1) and a no=(-1) and all votes must be followed with a detailed explanation for why they voted the way they did. The voting period lasts exactly 14 days from when the application is put into the [STAFF VOTE] period, if an applicant is denied he/she must wait at least 30 days from when their last application was denied.

 

This is what the new Rank system looks like:

 

Member Level 2

Requirements:

  • 6 months clan tenure.
  • 250 forum post count minimum.
  • 200 hour minimum requirement on our servers.
  • 10 referrals from Level 2 Members and above.
  • Perks:
  • Ability to wear sG | and [L2] tags.
  • Ability to refer Recruits.

 

Member Level 3

Requirements:

  • 1 year of clan tenure.
  • 500 forum post count minimum.
  • 450-hour minimum requirement on our servers.
  • 10 referrals from Level 3 Members and above.
  • Perks:
  • Ability to wear sG | and [L3] tags.
  • Ability to refer Recruits, Level 1- Level 3 members.
  • Ability to change your user title on forums.
  • Access to the FFA forum.
  • Basic Admin
  • Admin Immunity Level: 2

 

Member Level 4

Requirements:

  • 2 years of clan tenure.
  • 1000 forum post count minimum.
  • 700-hour minimum requirement on our servers.
  • 10 referrals from Level 4 Members and above, 2 have to be Staff.
  • Perks:
  • Ability to wear sG | and [L4] tags.
  • Ability to refer Recruits, Level 1 - Level 4 Members.
  • Ability to change your user title on forums.
  • Access to the FFA forum.
  • Premium Admin
  • Admin Immunity Level: 3

 

Member Level 5

Requirements:

  • 3 years of clan tenure.
  • 2000 post count minimum.
  • 1000-hour minimum requirement on our servers.
  • 10 referrals from Veteran Members and above, 2 have to be Staff.
  • Perks:
  • Ability to wear sG | and [L5] tags.
  • Ability to refer Recruits, Level 1 - Level 5 Members.
  • Ability to change your user title on forums.
  • Access to the FFA forum.
  • Premium Plus Admin
  • Admin Immunity Level: 4

 

Veteran Member

Requirements:

  • 5 years of clan tenure.
  • 3500 post count minimum.
  • 1500-hour minimum requirement on our servers.
  • 10 referrals from Veteran Members and above, 2 have to be Staff.
  • Perks:
  • Ability to wear sG | and [VET] tags.
  • Ability to refer Recruits, Level 1 - VET Members.
  • Ability to change your user title on forums.
  • Access to the FFA forum.
  • Premium Plus Admin, a Veteran forum badge, animated spray.
  • Admin Immunity Level: 4

 

The Veteran rank now requires 5 years of tenure in order to achieve the rank, all current Veterans who meet this 5-year requirement will keep their veteran rank, anyone who doesn’t meet the requirement will automatically be moved down to Level 5.

 

 

Returning Members:

 

Another rule change we would like to clarify is our rule on returning members applying for ranks. Currently a member is only required to show some sort of activity for 30 days before submitting an application. Going forward we would like to announce that we will be increasing that activity requirement to 60 days. During this period we will require some form of consistent activity, we aren’t asking for anything crazy, just some minimal activity that shows you’re an active member within the community again.

 

All new changes go into effect starting April,1st, 2017. If anyone has any questions regarding anything to do with these recruitment changes feel free to ask and staff will do our best to answer them.

Hey guys,

 

Even though you've been casting your vote as to why you think a member should get in or not and you've been feeling like your vote wasn't having much of an impact, well we've got the perfect solution for you!

 

Now you don't get a say in why you think a member shouldn't join! Muhwhahahahaha!

Subbing hours/posts for rank application is still the same as it previously was. We have been discussing the possibility of allowing recruits to substitute posts/hours, but we weren't able to come to a decision. So it will be further discussed, feel free to give your opinion on this as all input is valuable!
