  1. Hello everyone, due to some major changes in my life I will be stepping down from staff. I thought about staying on and seeing if I could balance my time, but I'd rather leave staff and not be super inactive. I'd like to thank all of my friends for all the great memories and I'd like to thank all of the staff members I have worked with over the past 4-5 years for their dedication to the community. Above everyone else I want to thank mimic for being a great staff partner and friend these past years, we didn't always get along but at the end of the day we could always laugh about how gay he is. I'll miss everyone, even the people I don't like. Peace
  2. We're aware fastdl is down, we currently have a ticket open with our host to see what the issue is. I'll update everyone once we hear more, sorry for the inconvenience.

  5. Conf. Falcon has been playing our warcraft servers even before I was in the community. Every time I've ever played with him I've got nothing but good experiences, he's respectful to everyone on the forums and in the servers. When I first connected to the WCS server in 2012, I remember falcon as one of the guys who actually helped me figure out what the hell I was doing. Overall I think he'll make a great addition to the community.
  6. So it seems there is some confusion as to what we're expecting when we say "detailed explanation" so I'll just take a moment to give everyone a run down on what we're looking for in referrals. First, we aren't expecting anyone to write a paragraph about the person or why he should be allowed to join our community, this would make referring anyone a pain in the butt. Everything we want in an explanation can be given in just a couple sentences, obviously writing more is a plus. As an example here is something along the lines of what we're looking for- confirm ref. Spons-- Although he has gotten mixed up with some of the toxic little children of this community, he is one of the more laid back and non-toxic ones. He has had his moments, and he won't deny that, but for the most part, he's been a nice little squeak. When you aren't playing Rust, Sponsored is a fun guy to play games with. I'd ref him any time. example #2. I'm ref'ing. He is easily one of the chillest of the youngin's and is genuinely enjoyable to play any game with. He had some accidental autism on the forums one time, but it's not representative of how he is on a daily basis. I think most can agree that him and Dash are still the best of the "squeakers". An explanation should go into detail as to why you think he would be a good addition to the community, off the top of my head here are some things I would use as a explanation I would give if I were to refer someone. Forum/game presence. admin ability reference their past and then give examples as to how the recruit has improved. How they treat other players. bring up your experience with the person in or out of the servers. These are just some examples that I came up with off the top of my head. Anyways, I hope this helped clear some things up. -Eddy
  7. peace
  8. @TravestyI think the lowest month had like a total of 26 or so votes or something. I don't remember off the top of my head.
  9. I understand this is April fools day, but this is actually a legit post. THIS ISN'T A JOKE. This was a big reason for the change. xD
  10. I'm not saying your vote wasn't impactful, I was trying to explain why there was a pretty big decrease in the amount of votes since the addition of the rank app tool. I (BIG WORD HERE BOYS, MAKE SURE YOU READ IT) felt like voting through the recruitment tool made my vote less impactful and at the end of the day I wasn't interested in voting if I didn't feel my vote meant anything. This actually only happened to two people.
  11. 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!
  12. what do you mean?
  13. Make recruitment more inclusive, Make veteran have a higher tenure requirement, add staff vote to avoid giving admin to cancer.
  14. 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.

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. -sG Staff
