    Recruitment

    The purpose of this poll is not to start drama, or bitch and complain. It is simply to find out what the community would like to do in this particular activity. I'd like to start by pointing out that I do not have all the answers, I don't have all the ideas to make the recruitment process perfect and I certainly don't assume I know what everybody wants and what is best for all of us. I'd also like to make it clear that I completely understand why some don't like the old voting system... circle jerks got out of hand on a couple of applications and some people wanting to join the community may have been put off. That being said, almost every single one of you in sG reading this went through that very process, you're here wearing the tags and hopefully you still love this place as much as I do. Removing the ability for members to vote on recruits has abolished this forum, you can tell me it's because of discord, you can tell me it's because the games we all play are changing... tell me whatever the hell you want. But things started to go down hill with community activity when this system was removed. You took away the one and only thing that normal members of the community can actually do for the community (donations, admining aside... don't be pedantic) it was something people wanted to be a part of and it's something people felt closer to the community for doing. I don't want this place to turn into a circle jerk, I don't want to scare off new members, I want the opposite of that. I also want to be able to vote no on somebody I don't deem worth to wear the tags that I so cherish, I'm sure I'm not the only one. I implore you all, every single active member of this community (even people who pop in from time to time), to post your vote, your ideas, your thoughts and your arguments. We are a community of people brought together under one roof, start listening to each other.

    With all due respect, this topic is over as far as I'm concerned. You've had all of this time to add your two cents but instead you choose to make a big joke out of it to prove a point. Leave the system how it is. Edit: @Moose, I do appreciate the fact you wrote the long reply with valid points, btw. Could have done with it post-troll though, would have made for a good debate.

    Our points were literally being bypassed for the same generic answers constantly. But we're expected to answer all of the opposing side... Rightttttttt

    They didn't contact anybody, they fudged the votes themselves.

    As the OP states, this thread was for everybody to comment and give their thoughts. Trav has been the only person really discussing this with me so of course I'm only directing my points at Trav, as he's the main person arguing the toss. You're right, 30% of people is not a negligible amount to ignore which is why I asked for a compromise. Which we reached. The old system worked more than well for almost the entire life span of this community, you said yourself that your feelings come from the automated system. We all agree that system was a load of balls but that's not what we're trying to reinstate.

    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.

    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?

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    44-19 The only person concerned with personal preference is you. 44 people Trav.

    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.

    You're the one that won't budge, why not start the bidding? You already know what the community have raised their hands for. It's not about what I want.

    You're too adorable to be mad at, that face of yours! Seriously though, give it up now and let's talk about a compromise to the old system. If it's any consolation, I didn't think the poll would go so heavily this way.

    What was it you said when this first came up, directly to me? "If 30 people want something then I'm convinced" (something along those lines) you were referring to referrals, yes but the point still stands. Stop thinking you know best and listen to the community, for once.

    Since when were you the person we needed to justify our opinions to? Many people have given different reasons in here, I haven't circle jerked people to respond and write their bits. You have 43 members of this community voting for something else and you continue to fight.

    Just because you don't want to vote on recruits doesn't mean it's the best decision not to. Says 70% of the public.
