Do you think sG is just going to start trolling recruitment just because we would have the ability to vote no? 

If history proves anything, then in some cases, yes

30 votes get you in.

 

Stick to the points to rank structure we used to have, or juggle it about if needs be. It does make getting enough votes slightly easier if somebody does have a reason to vote against them.  

 

All negative votes should be given a legitimate reason that would need validation, that would mean holding the vote from the main count until it's cleared. Not something that would happen too often so it's barely any extra responsibility for RO's. 

 

Perhaps no vote changing 10 days after your initial vote or in the final week of the process.

 

Recruit a new @DogsGoMeow to police the forums like he used to, if needs be, somebody not afraid to hand out a ban should anyone thinks its funny to ruin other people's apps. 

 

Voting should still be a privilege, not something abused and let's face it... You guys could do with stretching your legs, barely any policing left to do these days.

I agree with Rayne on this.

 

As much as I like Travesty, and understand he holds all power in regarding to R&R, I've stated in my post prior: RO's nowdays are lazy to monitor the ranks and recruitment, and I've seen already some of them do a half ass job.*

 

 

As much as I love you Trav, the fact that we have a 5 page discussion going, with multiple people pointing out how it can be better, or what can be done to change, and yet you still hold unwielding, is a bit upsetting.

Just because YOU decided that no one has brought up a point worthy of your interest, therefore the community does not want nor need recruitment to be looked at again.

The people have spoken regarding what they want , you just refuse to hear it.

Cmon man. 

 

 

Edit: *This was prior to the recent Staff changes. I am not attempting to imply that the newly acquired RO's are already fucking up.

I'm not refusing to hear any of it. I just don't think it's the best decision to make for the future of sG at this time.

 

You guys basically only want this out of personal preference.

 

The system we have now has a lot more pros than cons as compared to the vote system for recruits.

The only person concerned with personal preference is you.

I have yet to hear a convincing argument as to why we should.

 

Edit:

 

Sorry I have heard one:

 

'Some people were more active in the recruitment process when they could vote on recruits.'

25/??

 

Yes: (+43)

No: (-18)

 

 

You may say you're not, but the other things you've said also lead me to believe that its US vs You. Not US & You VS the problem.

The fact that people in the community are unhappy and would want to see some sort of change to recruitment. 

We are trying to find a way to find a middle ground where everyone is happy, or at least I am, but doesn't seem to be the same mindset you have.

A. You're never going to find that middle ground.

B. The fact that some people prefer to vote on a recruit is not a reason to change it.

The fact that 70% of active people have asked that we change a system, that can easily be changed, should be enough reason to change it.

 

The middle ground has been found, the only side not willing to budge... Is you.

There aren't enough pros to change. There really aren't. You guys are refusing to see it.

 

There is no moderating votes on what vote is worthy or not. Giving a detailed explanation does not solve that issue. If you want voting then you have to accept the circle jerk that comes with it. A member was allowed to vote however they so choose. It is a lot more difficult than you guys have made it out to be to 'get the ROs to do some actual work and moderate the voting'. If you want the voting system, then you have to accept the people that are allowed to vote.

 

From what I've seen the majority of the people want voting back so that they can have the potential to change their vote if they need to. They also felt they had more of a say when they could vote. But what I think you guys are forgetting that members can change after the voting period has ended too. Once they become a member of sG, people can revert to their regular selves rather than being the chipper Recruit they might have been.

 

It has the exact same flaw as the referral system.

 

EXCEPT the referral system has a lot more pros to it than the voting system when it comes to new recruits joining the community.

 

We're just repeating ourselves at this point.

 

Also Recruits are still getting denied due to not getting 20 referrals.

Why do you think this has anything to do with denying members? 

 

We're not arguing about this because I think we need to deny more people... We're arguing about this because THE MAJORITY of people miss the old voting system that clearly made THE MAJORITY of people feel like they could actually participate in something within the community. 

 

You're interpreting this all completely wrong and all you seem to think is that we want to keep people out. 

 

Other than "nobody can retract their vote or circle jerk apps" the referral system has zero benefit compared to the old system.

Ask yourself that question again... This is whole thing is about whether or not you're allowed to Vote NO on a recruit.

 

You miss the old system because it gave you the ability to DENY recruits.

 

C'mon now at least be honest about it.

Do some research, you'll find I've voted yes on alot more people than I've voted no on.

 

This is about having the option to choose, not about keeping people out. Open your eyes, all I've done is suggest ways to keep that from happening. 

 

Your last post is dumb.

You still have the option to choose. You can choose to refer or not refer.

 

Voting only allows you the added* option to vote no aka denying a recruit...

Why are you still talking as if the community agrees with the current system? 

 

You said yourself, were repeating ourselves now. 

 

The community has voted, massively against you, why are we still arguing the toss instead of reaching this compromise we almost got to yesterday?

If voting is brought back, then ranks requirements will change.

 

15/15 for every rank and recruits are out of 20/20

 

No one gets a special vote if you're staff/so/vet etc. Every vote is 1.

 

There is no policing of what is determined a good vote or not. Voting is voting. Members get to choose to vote how they please.

 

It's either voting or there's not voting. Either you're allowed to vote only once, or you can change your vote at any point.

Let's do that then... That's a compromise im atleast happy with, i do think you should be able to change their vote though. People can change their minds for good or bad.

 

Put this up for official discussion and take an official vote?

I suppose I'll add the fact that I 100% agree with how @Travesty 's current system works. @Rayne, you say you don't want to deny recruits, but that can literally only occur through one of two ways: 1. 'no' votes, or 2. Not reaching the standard. I believe having someone not reach a standard leaves the person more willing to re-apply rather than seeing a bunch of no votes that makes them not enjoy the community.

If somebody has a genuine disdain for a recruit then they're opinion is just as valid as everybody else's and should be contributed to the overall decision.

 

This community is all of ours and we've all always contributed to the recruitment process. Until now.

 

If you can't see past "they just want to deny people" there is no more I can really add.

That still leaves 30% which isn't a negligible number on who likes the current system. It's not everyone vs Trav like you're painting it to be

It's also contradictory to put 19 people there and say that he's the only one keeping this as personal preference

But you know what else keeps that from happening? The current ref system. Seems counter-intuitive to reintroduce a system that has inherent flaws in it and was originally phased out because of it

The majority of people are also dumbasses and that's why we have people in charge to make sure they don't fuck it up. Also, of all the ways to participate in the community, since when was voting on recruits the central pillar that everything in sG revolves around?

That's literally what this is. A barrier to entry means to keep people out.

You're gonna toss out two benefits and then say don't count? I don't think that's how an argument works. 

Example: Other than being physically healthy and fit, there's no reason to exercise.

It's really more like you're demanding something to happen. If the other party doesn't like it, it's clearly not middle ground

I mean..you can still contribute to the recruitment process. The ability to vote no is mutually exclusive from writing feedback on their recruit app.
