    Recruiting: Please remember KSI standard is 5 recruits a week per squad. Make sure a KSI member hosts the party chat. Don't let the possible recruit be the party host in case things go south, so they can control the party. If someone seeks you out to join KSI, don't be afraid to send them to the forums (www.ksiforums.org) to fill out an Join application. Rejoining members MUST go to the Rejoin section for assessment and fill out an application. Addressing Growth Ideally the growth pattern is: Recruiting, Squad Events, Training, Promotions. A lot of Divisions are just sustaining members, not growing. Try to innovate, and curve knowledge. If you need a kick-starter try a Grow by 20? If you need insight on how to execute and accomplish this, message KSI Ronin 77. Weekend Warfare: Saturday (11/18/17) Halo 3 Slayer doubles. Remember: Divisional Tournaments (In general) Mainly FFA's for the next month. Hype for the tournament is up to the Division. CD this week. Bo2 FFA.

During Turkey Bowl a drawing will be made for a $60 game code. SO ENTER AND WIN! Dating: You need to let your leadership know every time you enter a relationship as soon as you start dating. This will help the division prepare for scenarios, so less surprises can occur which will hurt the divisions. Drop a thumbs up if you like the notes! Or if you still haven't accomplished your Jan. 1 2017 goals. Not like me.......

    For me, I do have many people to thank. Some of these people have left KSI, others that are my family members and friends. Many of these people knew about my struggles, my feelings and my personal thoughts on a lot of stuff. Firstly, I am thankful for my mom who is a breast cancer survivor and the woman who gave life to me. As the stories she told me, she almost died just for me to exist. This woman is incredible. She traveled through the desert to arrive in the U.S, almost died during that long 8 day voyage and her struggle of having 4 children along with 3 others who belonged to other mothers. Without her decisions, I would have never existed. I would like to thank a few people like Night Halk who was a great friend and a very inspiring person when it came to taking care of his squad. But when things fell apart, I did try my best to fill in. I remember how he used to run many things, how he took responsibility for many things and how he was admired by our squad throughout the period of his time. He was a great mentor to me and will continue to be my mentor in my mind whenever I have any doubt. My choir people, they have welcomed me with open arms since the first day I walked in that door. They continue to support every single one of our members and they give me a lot of courage to do what I feel like I can't do for a long time. That is to sing to my hearts content. I'd like to thank my dog as well. Gizmo has really replaced the sadness our family had with our old dog's passing. He's a beautiful young spirit who brings us all joy. He can annoy us sometimes but overall, he gives us all that spunk we need in our daily lives. Finally, I am thankful for the opportunity that has been given to me a few months ago, to be a general of an amazing squad. I still haven't given up on making it better than ever again. I can have many doubts but, never am I giving up. Sorry if this was going on forever. I just had a very eventful year here in KSI and in my daily life. I hope that next year, more things come for me to be thankful of.

    Age: 19 Discord (Mandatory): Always Ganking #2571 Squad/Division: DEFIANT EO Writing experience: I do not have any prior experience writing any articles for newsletters or anything in that regard. I would say I am a decent writer however. Writing has always been a decent skill of mine and i'm sure it will also be honed in the process of writing articles for KSI. I am currently a sophomore in college. Are you looking to be a part of the KSI News Team or the KSI History Team? KSI News Team What would you like to write about? (Member profiles, game reviews, Weekend Warfare coverage, etc.): I plan to write about how we in Defiant plan on making KSI relevant in the smite community and how we will go about out plan. I plan on writing a detailed analysis about each patch notes for smite (I am currently a grandmaster in smite (top 25 players)). Therefore, I have a very good understanding of the game and how new characters and new patch notes affect it and I believe going over newer items will be really helpful for the players. What would you add or contribute to KSI News? Providing in depth relevant information to our smite players as well assist ing in event recaps. I would be adding detailed explanations on new releases in smite and keep the players up to date with regards to all the changes. It will help players better understand what is going on and how it affects the game as well as gain a better understanding of the changes. Are you currently in any other KSI Departments? I am not currently in any other KSI Department. Do you have any active applications with other KSI Departments? I do not have any active applications with other KSI Departments Are you willing to provide basic communication about articles and ideas? Of course Are you open to criticism about writing techniques and willing to learn? I am open to criticism about writing techniques and willing to learn. However, it also depends on the criticism, depending on whether I think it helps or not I may criticize it and ask why it would be better that way, but I will always take it into consideration. We can't get better at anything if we don't, lol. Any comments or questions: Initial work sample (200-300 words; please write it on the spot): Initial Work Sample (patch 4.12).docx

    I am FuzzyMeep™


    Figured I would make a topic we could use to throw around some quotes, ideologies and stories just to help mesh ideas and what not No matter how good you think you are as a leader, my goodness, the people around you will have all kinds of ideas for how you can get better. So for me, the most fundamental thing about leadership is to have the humility to continue to get feedback and to try to get better - because your job is to try to help everybody else get better. Jim Yong Kim I think this is an incredible quote, this plays into a lot of what we push around here, leaders leading leaders. I know it can be a pain when people question your actions and motives but it is so important , if you can't explain your reasoning then maybe the action is unnecessary. I say that in relation to the quote above because you will never be the best nor even close if you are not built up by your team, if you don't take advise and suggestions from anyone and everyone who offers it you may miss something that could be the next big idea or miss out on a target phrase that sends your brain into a different route of thinkimg. Now obviously with that you know that a lot of people under you may not understand some of what is going on or may suggest a variation of a program or solution you already tried but it will assist you in thinking out of the box and brainstorming a better product or idea A lot of what the board of directors is, is just a think tank. I am not dismissing the individual jobs, or requirements that come with the positions the members of the board need to be proficient in but other then someone being profound in a field I am always looking for creative people who can bounce and improve ideas off one another, some have no admining capabilities or desires but that does not remove their ability to make suggestions and think differently then the ones who do, they don't know our limitations so they don't suggest reserve ideas. A good chunk of the bod have not been in a serious clan ops position in a long time, with that makes em essential to today's clan ops experience, something that worked in 05 or 08 may not work now but a variation could be or again it could trigger a different line of thinking There was a time that div leaders throufg founders had access to every squad tag along with generals, sometimes ex generals and leaders, there was no control on an upper leader section and when a squad tag got hit or something occured there was no accountability and a lot of pointing fingers, someone made the statement following an issue that he wished he just gave the tag and changed the password so no one but him could Huck with it. That statement made my head spin and got me thinking on how to correct this issue, with some brainstorming we came up with communication directors who would hold a set amount of tags and be the only ones with access outside of the generals, well when we were forced to create ksiforums.org one of the two coms directors decided he was not going to continue kn with us and gave us all the info, he had the ability to really harm the community but didn't. That's when we started using a form of clan management system to hold all info and with Xbox safety features really disable the ability for people to destroy squads like we once did, I know this is a long story but it changed our whole outlook and it all started with a statement said out of aggravation Before I ramble anymore please feel free to add anything you would like in here again stories, quotes, or what ever
