    @KSI Gary 7 is the God of Wisdom. All places he goes he spreads his wisdom. He is a wise experienced God. Through his experiences and hardship in the land of Legendary Warriors, struggling to find everlasting life as a god. Through months and months of nothingness, it was darkness, until in the distance Gary saw @Mr. Conversation Era shining with a bright aura of light. Little did Gary know it was Ronin God of the Sun. Ronin came to Gary from the land of the Divine Reign and together they joined together as Divine Warriors. Surrounded by darkness both lands were, but together Ronin and Gary joined both the land of Legendary Warriors and the land of Divine Reign and made light. The Land of Divine Warriors was created, with this creation Gary became the God of Wisdom, followed by his other God friend @KSI Havoc 7 God of Knowledge. Together they kept Divine Warriors alive forever. You can still picture them frolicking into the sunset together. This was the mythology of Divine Warriors By KSI Bane from DW

It’s also important for members to know the members that contribute a major milestone to KSI to build the community. I been recently interviewed myself by a member of the history department on my history in Forced Induction. I was amazed in seeing my article on the global site, it was a huge honor in seeing that. Seeing that gave me the motivation to do more in KSI and try something new for a change. Joining the History Team will help in improving my writing skills and vocabulary.

    @KSI Joe 7 and @KSIxROMEOremind me of the Hecatonchires. They were three extremely large and incredibly strong giants, each having one hundred arms and fifty heads. These three mythical giants were the children of Gaia and Uranus. At first site they did not seem impressive to the Gods and were banished to the depths of Tartarus and guarded by Campe. Gaia, their mother, convinced Zeus that these giants could fight and be extremly beneficial in the war against the Titans. Zeus agrees and the three giants do indeed prove their worth in defeating the Titans because of their ability to throw a large amount of boulders quickly with their strength and 100 arms. The three brothers were named Briareus, Cottus, and Gyges. KSI Joe 7 and KSIxROMEO remind me of them because from the outside looking in you might not see all their tremendous qualities. Here are the top two. 1. They must have 50 heads and one hundred arms in order to do everything that they do 24/7 for their division and squads. 2. They have your six through anything. It doesn't matter what kind of a crap day they themselves might be having, they go out of their way to take care of their members. It takes a giants chest to hold their extraordinarily large hearts. 3. They own in gaming. Now you might have thought to yourself, that's only two of the three brothers. Well here is a shout out to @I am FuzzyMeep™ When I needed help and no one could figure things out, he showed up and and stuck to the problem till it was solved. I hate to show my ignorance, but at the time, I had no clue his position in KSI. He never once came across as anyone special, just a person who cared and helped. Which elects him as the third. All three are heroes in my eyes and I am very grateful for this chance to, in a small way, let others know just how incredible these leaders are.

    @Nikki Cola- Goddess of Compassion and Guidance Harmony was known through the lands as a very helpful and caring person to all from her home Village (Division) and always has been to those from all neighboring villages in the kingdom, her renkown grew fast and she eventually stepped up into a leadership role in her village and attained the title of Divine Warrior. After many trials and tribulations she went out of her way to guide her fellow villagers to providence and prosperity asisting all who asked for her help. She became such a pillar to the village and the kingdom she was entrusted to visit different villages and teach them the decreed words and guidance of the ruling council of the kingdom to improve the performance and production for the kingdom. after much effort and care for all who needed it she was revered and remembered as the Goddess of Compassion and Guidance. To this day nobody else has ever been able to reach the feats that she accomplished and achieve deity status in the world and forever her touch will always be felt through the land.

    Sorry it's taken so long to add my two cents. Regardless of the quantity of people that post in this thread, I can only tell you about the quality of Havoc as a leader in this community. A few months ago when Havoc rejoined the community, FuzzyMeep sent me a message telling me to get him involved in Performance Operations. As the former CPO, he already had some experience doing what we were doing. It took us a few days of playing tag, but we finally got in the same party. I could tell right away how valuable an asset he was going to be. As a newly placed co-founder of DW and a PO, he hit the ground running and didn't look back. At first I wasn't sure how much he could handle so I had him work closely with some of the more experienced people in the dept. He quickly proved that he didn't need that. What I found out was that he was an excellent equalizer to my personality, which at times can be brash or blunt. He knew how to act in different situations, and provided a very distinct opinion within the group. He has also proven to be a person who isn't afraid to tell me he doesn't agree with my ideas. Over time it became clear that I wasn't going to be able to continue as the dept head indefinitely due to my schedule, so I quickly identified Havoc as my replacement. Since then he has done a fantastic job as my Co-Head, running things in my absences, and will soon be taking over as the Head of the department. His future vision for Performance Ops and KSI will take them both to the next level, and I can't wait to see what he does.

    Helping Hand Made up of experienced 7's and Generals and would help mentor and train new leaders across KSI. Finding and training new strong officers can become a headache for anyone. This department would help easy that burden. They would go where needed, and assist the Generals that are struggling. This would benefit our community across the board. The squads would begin to retain the members they have and would grow. With strong trained officers that enjoy what they do instead of stresa over whether they are going to make it or not. That positive attitude and demmeanor would spread and people would feed off of that. Start coming to more gamenights, getting around their squads, bringing in their personal friends. This is what the Helping Hand department would strive for.

    The Board of Directors is angrard! Each member is a full fledged deity Fuzzymeep, the God of charisma and fate. Fuzzymeep was once apart of Asgard, but as the reigning deity he and other duties got in a war with Odin, it wasn't very long, and he easily won. The reason he got in a war was to end the corruption of Odinn! He migrated all the deities to Angrard! Now he spends his days overseeing his Angrard and planning for the future. Impppy, the God of fire and relentlessness. Impppy is a God who fought his way to the top just to be pushed down again, but he didn't give up, he pushed and pushed, and showed he was made of Steel. He was once the God of creativity, but he is now the second most powerful deity along side Fuzzymeep. Greg: the God of Endurance and patience. Greg is the God that never gives up. He keeps going and holds his ground no matter what. No matter the wars and deaths he has witnessed he still pushes on. He is a diety who has been through a lot, but he is at the top of his dominion Rags: The God of science and research! He's been by fuzzy's side for an eternity. Doctor: The God of technology and advancement. Doctor was once a man, a medical doctor who ran a health shop when he was young, as he grew older as a human he ran multiple doctor offices over the whole world, he became a hero, and so he was Gods made him a diety, and he did that for awhile, he protected and preserved many realms, and now he is a ranking diety! Ace: The God of Economics and currency. Ace was once a man, a man with passion and desire for money, he was greedy until he became 40, and this he met a man who changed his life, he turn his greed into a knowledge and expertise on economics and currency. He used his knowledge to build strong thriving economies in areas where there was no such thing, he brought up man poor people who than became wealthy themselves who did the same for others. He did this in the poorest and poor. He was a hero, and so was granted diety status Paratroop: the God of Safety and security. As a man he was a normal soldier just like any other, he followed his orders and did his duties. He was soon to retire and live a life of wealth, but he just had one more battle to fight. Him and his fellow soldiers stormed a village and killed a man, woman, and child. During the middle of the battle a child threw a rock at the back of his head, he was momentarily blind and his ears were ringing. When his senses came back, he realized that him and his soldiers were butchering an innocent village, and realized that this village's chief refused to be enslaved to the emperor. Para also realized he's done this throughout most of his career. He fought armies yeah, but he and his fellow soldiers butchered many villages and cities that didn't fall in line. He broke down and cried due to the pain and destruction he caused. Before he knew it the chaos was over. He saw puddles of blood everywhere, he took his blade and stabbed himself in the gut to take his own life. He woke up and realized he wasn't dead, he missed vital organs. He looked and saw a woman was making hot water and preparing medicine. She saved him. Para asked why she did so, she replied "while I hate you and want to kill you myself, it isn't what the Chief would have wanted" they eventually talked more, Para apologized for what he did, and Didn't know what he was doing. The woman replied "I know, as much as I hate to admit it, it isn't your fault, your emperor brainwashed and put a poison in you to blind you to what you do. Our chief found out and and threatened the rule of the emperor and refused to be made slaves in his rule. Para vowed that when his wounds were healed he would make amends and repent. When he was finally healed, the woman lead him the another village. The villagers were afraid, but the Chief who also knew the truth calmed them down. Para spoke to them and realized that it was only a matter of time be the emperor attacked this one as well. He swore to the chief he would fight and protect this place, but the Chief scoffed and laughed at him. You?! You're one man, you will die with rest of us, that won't make amends you fool! What you need to do is teach us to fight and protect ourselves, you need to teach us to make defenses and traps and everything needed to make a stand! This is was the chief said to Para. So para did so, after everything all the men and women were battle ready, defenses were made, and even children were in a position to help the battle. The chief was very happy. Para said we will stand against the evil emperor together and fight! The chief replied "Yes, WE will! Not you, you have to go to other villages and do the same! We may still lose, but there are other villages who need help! Go and do the same for them! So Para did. He kept on doing this, he went from village to village, continent to continent doing so. He did this all over the world, he redeemed himself and even became a hero! No village was ever destroyed by the evil emperor again, and the more battles he lost, the more soldiers realized the truth. The Gods made Paratroop into a diety. The seniors and Heads are Titans; VeriiTas: the Titan of Truth and reconciliation. VeriiTas was granted God statue like many, he was the most powerful man of his time, he became a king and swore he would always let the truth be known, and when people did wrong he forgave them, and sent them on a quest of redemption. When the God's came to him, they gave him a series of quests to complete, these quests were, to defeat the Lion of darkness, to grow and protect the coveted tree of life, to walk the globe as a blind man. To forge a weapon worthy of the Gods. He was made into a Titan Ashhh: The titan of Embers and of knowledge. On Earth Ashhh was born in a poor family, with no education and nothing. Her family were all criminals who only wanted Ashhh to be a criminal as well, she refused. The family started to hate her and resent her, when she was the age of 15 they planned to kill her, but she set a trap for them, and poured firey coals and embers on them. She than took there bodies and traveled the land to a volcano and threw them in there. She spent the rest of her life educating herself and killing people like her family, and than educating the children of said families. She became the smartest human on Earth, she was a hero and she wasn't made into a Titan she had the knowledge of how to become one. Pantsir: The Titan of healing and health. Pantsir was a man of the God's and he healed people of there pains, and.... He charged a lot of money. He was a fraud! He did this for many years, until a man came in and proceeded to punch him repeatedly, Pantsir never had a chance to defend himself. This man continued beating him mercilessly unti hel had blood over all his face and body, he couldn't even open his mouth and could barely breathe through his nose, but every breath was painful. "If you truly have the power of the gods, than heal yourself! This man said. Everyone in the congregation was shocked, everything was silent for a few minutes. "You see everyone he's just a fraud! What he does is manipulate people into thinking they are healed, and than they leave, but have you ever seen anyone come back and at least listen? No! Because they all shortly die from their diseases or he has them killed! says the stranger. "Brother! Come in here now!" His brother was someone who was "healed" of his leprosy by Pantsir. He came in, barely and he still had Leprosy. everyone in the crowd remembered him, and 1 by 1 people left. Until there were only the stranger and Pantsir. The stranger spat on him and left. Pantsir still couldn't move. Outside people all knew. They ransacked his home, stole all his riches and every town knew of his treachery. Finally after a whole day he was able to moreo barely, he went to a doctor to ask for help, and he spat on him. He went doctor to doctor, and all turned him down, or even beat him themselves. He eventually limped to an alley, he fell and gave up. The stranger came back and poured a bucket of water on Pantsir, he had Pantsir's attention. He said, my name is Kromanius. Pantsir didn't know who he was. Kromanius said, I'll heal you, and Pantsir was healed. Pantsir laid on the ground afraid and confused. Kromanius said "Stand up" Pantsir did so. Kromanius said, you are a fraud, a fool, you are evil! No more" he said this in a prophetic way. Pantsir was sure what was going on. Kromanius took Pantsir and they lived, trained, talked, and worked for 20 years. They for 15 years went house to house offering to help, and so they did they spent one week at every house they went to, they built, cleaned, and worked for the house owners. All the while Kromanius taught Pantsir about the God's, about kindness, about selflessness. For the last 5 years they went to war zones and both healed people. Pantsir could finally healed people. After the last year Kromanius said to Pantsir "You are redeemed, now it's up to you" Kromanius than said goodbye. Pantsir returned home, and they still didn't accept him, but for 5 years he served them, buy using everything he learned. He built schools, fenses, made gardens and gave food to everyone. He wasn't able to heal, but he did serve people. After 5 years he was forgiven, he than went city to city serving them and providing mental healing. He became a hero and was made into a titan Ronin: the Titan of creation. Ronin was a Samurai, he killed many many people. Until one day he met his match, this Samurai, this woman, showed she was more skilled, but she didn't kill him. She said, killing isn't necessary. He never saw her again. He wasn't sure what to do with this information, but the traveled the land contemplating this. His reputation was known, so no one challenged him, until his rival challenged him. They fought and fought and fought, until they were barely able to stand. They were both cut up, and we're bleeding. They clashed swords one last time and their blades both broke on contact, Ronin instinctively grabbed one of the broken blade and sliced his rival's throat. His rival fell to the ground, as Ronin was going to plunge the blade into his rival's skull, his mind flashed to when he was on the ground in front of the woman, and she said, Killing isn't necessary. He stopped the bleeding on his rival's throat and patched him and himself up. He carried his rival to his camping ground, and be prepared a big meal for both of them. When his rival awoke he was surprised, Ronin offered him some food, and they both shared a hearty laugh. He decided from that day on he will no longer kill, rather he will create. From that day on he traveled the land creating villages, towns, and kingdoms. He saved people, and he brought people together, he was a hero, and he was made into a Titan. Scotland: The Titan of Scots land. Scotland was always a Titan, but his domain is only in Scots land. He's has had a major impact in the realm of dieties and Titans though True: The Titan of creativity. True as a human created an international group of Truth seekers and investigators, she and this group uncovered all truth and corruption! She was made into a diety because of this Gary; The Titan of entertainment. Gary was a showman, he used his entertainment skills and took it all over the world, his showman ship increased the morale of villages and towns making them a lot stronger even saving them. He was made into a diety. Tavi: The Titan of beauty and nature. Tavie makes what has been created and make it beautiful. She started out as a painter and artist on Earth, her art saved lives. Emmmy: The titan of incentives. Emmmy award people who did good, her incentives caused people to do good,and she was made into a titan Badkitty: The Titan of War and death.

    Sucker Punched

    i have been through a lot in life such as depression and abuse. when i was younger i had been punched by life very hard. i was around the age of 14 or 15 i had enough of the abuse and told my biological father i wanted to move to my mothers (which i succeeded after awhile). when i told him that he was furious. now i will disclaim none of the abuse came from my father but his wife. but on with the story, he was so mad he called my grandfather who was very sick and made me say something terrible. he told me he would let me go only if i told my grandfather i didn't love him. like above i came to the moment of the decision. i chose to be brave and i still regret saying that to my grandfather because he passed away a year or two later. i still hate my father for making me say that. i said what i did so i could save my self and my brother from that abuse. so that is a punch from life for me

    That is trouble I have is we are not pushing for recruits, we have been pushing for member retention through utilizing the Staff Sgt rank to play with Cpls and Pvts, and having better officer rations/Divisional Cup activity pushes. we can get all the members we want, but if we dont provide the environment we tell them about it is useless and only undercuts us at the end. knowing how to recruit is an important component of moving up the ranks, not in the sense that you must bring in X amount, but it shows you understand KSI enough to be able to teach others the basics. Now with a full staff, Active members and strong showing's i could care less if we split at 60 members or 120 members. we should base splits for both divisions and squads not off numbers but off of what is best for business. I strongly believe if you are at 85 members, ready to split and the general is told he has to hit 100, they will find the members....and it will be through mass recruiting and result in poorer results

    New Member Workshop: A Beginner's Guide to KSI Workshop Introduction: This workshop is designed to provide trainers with the tools necessary to make every new member's introduction to KSI as succesful as possible. Historically, when members are recruited, they are given the crash course to what this community is, what is does, and what their role in it could look like. Nevertheless, time has shown us that this has not always been sufficient, and at times, detrimental to the overall quality of our community. We hope that this new guide to membership in KSI will ensure that all community members start of on the right foot, with the knowledge that they will need to take their new environment by storm. The information that they will be introduced to throughout includes things such as the Code of Conduct, Rank Structure, elements of the Standard Operating Procedures, KSI's Open Door and Harassment Policies, the Forums, and the way departments function within the community. While there is an infinite amount of material that could have been included, this is perhaps the most important, and most relevant. In time, the hope is that much of the importance that has been placed on the initial recruitment can be moved to this workshop. A recruiters job is to promote our community, and the benefits it provides to potential members, and their friends. Once that has happened, it is also their job to bring them into the fold, while also giving them the tiniest slice of information necessary to let them proceed with membership. As a trainer, it is your job to build on that, training new recruits to the fullest extent possible on all of the information that is critical for our future members, leaders, and mentors. Additionally, this workshop is not meant to be read word for word. As the trainer, you should read through it, take in the information, and find the best way to deliver it, just as will be stated throughout the information we are about to discuss. Workshop Occurrence: This workshop will be offered on a rotating basis. Specific dates and occurrences will be listed on the monthly workshop calendar created by the Human Resources Department. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Before we Begin (Pre-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics) The Following questions may be used as a conversation starter before beginning your workshop. Before being recruited into KSI, had you ever had any experience with other gaming communities, or clans? If you have had any experiences such as this, what were your communities, or clans like? Why did you join KSI? How was your recruitment into KSI? What do you remember most about it? Does anything stick out in your mind? Did you have any questions that your recruiter wasn't able to answer at the time? Moving forward, what do you hope to get out of the community? What are your goals? ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Core of the Program (Workshop Topics, Progression, and Key Points) Workshop Curriculum Introduction: The topics listed below represent the information most critical to new members in KSI. Throughout the workshop you will cover a wide range of topics from the Code of Conduct, to how the forums function. At all times, keep in mind that the people you are talking to our still new arrivals to our community. While it is important you cover the topics below in detail, it's also important to read the room, and know your audience. In many ways these are still members who are still deciding if they want to be in KSI long term or not. Keep that in mind, and make sure that the way your present this workshop, and the way that you go about hosting it, still allow for a fun, collaborative, and open learning environment. Keep them interested, while at the same time sparking a lasting interest in KSI. Important Workshop Technical Note: This workshop will be interactive, meaning that as you go through the information, participants should follow along on both www.KSIGlobal.org and www.KSIForums.org. You will go over the information as listed below, but also direct them to where they might find it themselves in the future. Because of this, before beginning the workshop please walk your participants through signing up for the forums if they have not already done so. To get credit for completing this curriculum, they must be on the forums throughout the process. 1. The KSI Code of Conduct, and Why It's Important: The KSI Code of Conduct is a set of rules outlining the social norms and responsibilities of an individual or organization. Each person recruited into KSI is expected to follow and uphold all principles and values, while developing their leadership skills. This code of conduct clarifies our community's mission, and in doing so, defines the overall desired behavior of all current and future members. The CoC can be found here: http://www.ksiforums.org/topic/35279-code-of-conduct/ 2. KSI Rank Structure: In order to provide a more organized experience for those who join our community, KSI members are placed in a semi military fashioned rank structure, in which one's rank represents that member's status in this community. For all respective purposes, this rank structure is separated into a multi-tiered system in the following order, from highest rank to the lowest: Multi-Divisional or Community Level Divisional Level Multi-Squad Level Squad Level Each of these tiers are then broken down into several ranks. The full breakdown of rank structure and organization can be found in the quote box below. All you need to do is click the arrow to expand the information inside. Descriptions and duties involved with each rank can be found here: http://www.ksiglobal.org/portfolio/rankstructure/ How to recognize rank: The 7 suffix in gamer-tags refers to KSI Leaders who have attained the rank of Co-Founder or higher in the past, or present. However, we do have some leaders not currently in those leadership positions who hold a 7 in their name. In general, no member should have a 7 in their name unless they currently hold a position equal to Co-Founder or higher, or have previously held such as position. 3. KSI Clan Ops Structure As briefly touched on during the Rank Structure portion of this workshop, KSI is broken down into certain structures, and areas. As a new member of KSI, you are a part of what we call Clan Operations, or Clan Ops for short. Specifically, you are a member of a certain squad, which resides in a certain division. For example, you might be a RCT or PVT in the squad Icebound, which is part of the division Xero Degreez (XD). Clan Ops represents 1/3 of KSI, and is perhaps the most dynamic, and important piece of the community. It is where all current and future leaders are created, and without it, KSI could not exist. At a minimum, you should know what this looks like structurally, why it's important to you, and the key players in your particular squads and divisions. As a new member, it is expected that you know the rank structure from Recruit to Senior Director. The full breakdown of the Clan Ops Structure of KSI can be found in the quote box below. All you need to do is click to click the arrow to expand the information inside. Further description of the structure of KSI can be found here: http://www.ksiglobal.org/info/ 4. KSI's Harassment Policy: K.S.I. will not tolerate harassment or intimidation of our members on any basis prohibited by but not limited to, the law, including race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, handicap, & disability. Harassment is governed by state laws, which vary by state, but is generally defined as a course of conduct which annoys, threatens, intimidates, alarms, or puts a person in fear of their safety. Harassment is unwanted, unwelcome and uninvited behavior that demeans, threatens or offends the victim and results in a hostile environment for the victim. Harassing behavior may include, but is not limited to, epithets, derogatory comments or slurs and lewd propositions, assault, impeding or blocking movement, offensive touching or any physical interference with normal work or movement, and visual insults, such as derogatory posters or cartoons. KSI's Harassment Policy can be found here: http://www.ksiglobal.org/portfolio/handbook/ 5. KSI's Sexual Harassment Policy: Any suggestions, or insinuations made towards any member of KSI for sexual favors may affect the terms and condition of membership with this community. Unwanted sexual advances, and inappropriate sexual behavior will strictly not be tolerated. It is the policy of K.S.I. that any harassment, including acts creating a hostile gaming environment or any other discriminatory acts directed against our members, will result in discipline, up to, and including blacklisting. K.S.I. will not tolerate any such harassment of our members by our affiliates. For purposes of this policy, sexual harassment is defined as any type of sexually-oriented conduct, whether intentional or not, that is unwelcome and has the purpose or effect of creating a gaming environment that is hostile, offensive or coercive. The following are examples of conduct that, depending upon the circumstances, may constitute sexual harassment: Unwelcome sexual jokes, language, nicknames, advances or propositions Written or oral abuse of a sexual nature, sexually degrading or vulgar words to describe an individual. The display of sexually suggestive objects, pictures, posters or cartoons Unwelcome comments about an individual's body Asking questions about sexual conduct 6. KSI's Open Door Policy: The KSI Open Door Policy allows members to speak with Senior Community Leaders regarding a wide range of issues, from ideas, or concerns you might have with the community, to numerous other issues. We believe that in keeping with KSI's philosophy of open communications, all gamers, affiliates, and members have the right and are encouraged to speak freely with leadership about their game related concerns. Nevertheless, members are encouraged to speak directly to the leaders in their chain of command when possible. One of the most important relationships gamers will develop in KSI is the relationship between themselves, and their leaders. However, should members need support from someone other than their leaders, the entire management team, the Seniors, and the Board of Directors are committed to resolving any issues, listening to ideas, or answering questions that may arise. Topics may be addressed via the Open Door Policy include, but are not limited to: Harassment Discrimination Community Questions/Concerns Innovative Ideas Recommendations Again, we urge you to go directly to your divisional leaders to discuss your game-related ideas, recommendations, concerns and other issues which are important to you. If, after talking with your leader, you feel the need for additional discussion, you are encouraged to speak with any Community Leaders, or members within the Human Resources epartment. KSI's Open Door Policy can be found here: http://www.ksiglobal.org/portfolio/handbook/ 7. Leave of Absence (LOA): A Leave of Absence within KSI is a period of time that one must be away from one's primary responsibility or rank, while still maintaining the status of their respective position. For L.O.A's it is standard that all members are required to inform the General of their respective squad, or their immediate superior, of their intention to take a small period of time away from KSI. Usually this period of time is for no more than about a week. If a longer L.O.A is needed, it is imperative that is discussed with the member's immediate superior officers. L.O.A's should not be denied, but an abuse of the system can, and will result in removal from a leadership position in KSI. Listed below are some of the more common reasons that someone may use to take a Leave of Absence: Death of a relative/Close friend Starting a new job/Adjusting to a new schedule Family vacation Wedding/Honeymoon Moving/Loss of internet Any other reason that may cause you to be unavailable for a period of a week or more KSI's Leave of Absence (L.O.A) Policy can be found here: http://www.ksiglobal.org/portfolio/handbook/ 8. Squad and Divisional Transfers Unfortunately, like in real life, things don't always work out in KSI. For one reason or another, you might find that the squad or division you are in just isn't the best potential fit for you. This could be due to a variety of factors, including game type incompatibility, personal issues, or issues with other members, or leaders in your squad or division. As a first course of action, we always encourage you to follow the chain of command, and try to resolve anything that might be affecting you. If that isn't possible, or nothing comes of it, then you may start the process of looking for a new home in KSI. After all, we would rather you find the place that is right for you within our community, instead of leaving it. Every single member of this community is vital, including you. Below you will find the process for Squad, and Division Transfers. Squad Transfers: As the member wishing to find a new home, you must be the one to request the transfer. No one can do it for you. To start the process, you must first contact your General to discuss the issue. He, or she is going to ask you a series of questions, and try to find an in house solution. If that isn't possible, and they approve the transfer, they will then contact the Co-Founder of the squad to discussion your intention. The Co-Founder will then talk it over with all of the Generals in the division to try and find you a new home. Once that has happened, the two Generals will then meet to sort out the details, such as a discussion on your professionalism, reason for transferring, etc. If everything checks out, your transfer will be approved. Note: At any point in time during this process, any of the officers listed may deny your transfer. Divisional Transfers: Just like Squad Transfers, Divisional Transfers can occur when a member no longer feels like their current division is the best fit for them. Also just like Squad Transfers, the same criteria will apply. Always try to solve any problems in house first before trying to find somewhere new to live. Without getting into the same repetitive detail, it's important to recognize that the process for Divisional Transfers is slightly different, and requires attention to detail. Just like with Squad Transfers, you must follow the correct chain of command when requesting a move. First speak to the General of your squad. If they agree to your transfer, they will then talk to the Highest Ranking Officer in the division to receive final approval. Once that happens, you will be directed to create a topic in the Divisional Transfer Section of the forums. Your Division Leader, and Director will then post their approval. If the division you desire to transfer to also approves of the move, the Director and Division Leader of the destination will also post their approval. It's important to note that when transferring divisions, you are not always guaranteed to keep your previous rank. Note: At any point in time during this process, any of the officers listed may deny your transfer. Divisional Transfer Forums Area: http://www.ksiforums.org/forum/280-divisional-transfer-area/ 9. Departments within KSI: Departments are a great way to get your name out there and meet new people, all while furthering your career in an area you already have interest in. Some of these are system based, while many are based on the forums, and in Web Operations. In an effort to improve participation and the overall quality of each department, there is a cap on how many departments a member can be a part of. Descriptions of each department can be found in the forums workshop. Not in Clan-Ops and not a Department Head/Co-Head: Max of 3 Departments Member of Clan-Ops and not a Department Head/Co-Head: Max of 2 Departments Departments that count towards the cap are as follows: AAP Marketing News/History Team Productions Tournaments and Events Apply for a department here (Make sure to read all posting guidelines first: http://www.ksiforums.org/forum/316-join-a-department/ 10. KSI Social Media Outlets: KSI has a presence on several social media pages, and messaging applications: KSI Forums - www.ksiforums.org Facebook - KSI Global @ksiglobalgaming Twitter - https://twitter.com/KSIGlobalGaming Twitch - www.twitch.tv/ksilive and www.twitch.tv/ksilive2 11. KSI Messaging Applications: Each division has their own way of communicating relevant information to each other. Squad game lobbies, meeting times, and other events are usually posted in the appropriate channels. The two main applications KSI utilize are as follows: Discord - Discord is available on PC/Mobile devices. Each division has their own server, and each squad has their own channel within said server. You must be invited by a current member to gain access to that divisions server, and usually Captains and above will be able to assign you the proper roles required. Departments, as well as other groups within KSI will also commonly use Discord to communicate. Kik- Kik is only available on mobile devices. You must be invited by a current member to gain access to their divisional/squad chats. 12. KSI Forums: The forums are KSI's main source of information stored all in one convenient location. New members should be signing up for an account as they're being recruited in. Officers are required to sign on daily to update their divisional activity logs, and officer check-ins. Other helpful information that can be found is listed below and is explained in depth within the forums workshop: Clan-Ops Information Center Division Transfer Area Divisional Sections Community Events Access to Department Areas Signups for events General Chat 13. New Member Certification: Now that these members have completed the New Members Workshop, it is time for them to post notification in the AAP section to receive their New Member Certification. You can find the AAP section of the forums here: http://www.ksiforums.org/forum/82-aap/ In the quote box below are the steps that need to be taken to complete New Member Certification.

You do not have to ask every question. Pick the ones that you believe will have the most impact, and most buy in with your workshop group. What are the initial topics that stood out to you while going through the workshop? Was there anything that surprised you? Was there anything that you didn't fully understand or still have questions about? What are you most looking forward to with regards to your future in KSI? Do you plan to take advantage of any of the opportunities listed here? If so, which ones?
