      KSI Divisional Hall of Fame   08/12/2018

      We are excited to announce a new addition to KSI's portfolio -- The Divisional Hall of Fame! Members make impressions and differences every day at the divisional level, and thanks to the ingenuity of KSI member KSI Skarzx 77 and the KSI AAP, we have decided to implement an official Divisional Hall of Fame across the community. The process will run similarly to KSI’s “Of the Month” and “Of the Year” awards, but with some minor tweaks, including the nomination periods and the nomination process. Current Members This process will happen twice a year: 1) at Fall Classic in September and 2) Spring Break in March. You will only be allowed to nominate one (1) person in YOUR division. You cannot nominate a member of another division, or if you are not active within Clan-Ops. To be eligible, the nominee must meet the following baseline criteria: Must currently be in the division they are being nominated for. Must be in the division for at least six (6) months. Must be in KSI for at least one (1) year. Must have been awarded Outstanding Service Level 1 through the AAP. Not been blacklisted, security risked, or DNH’ed unless successfully appealed and overturned. Must have KSI gamertag. Please make sure those criteria are met. You can confirm that criteria by visiting their profile and looking at their awards tab, or by asking the person you are nominating. The nomination process will occur within a specially made section similar to KSI's DOTMs, and each division will have its own thread for nominations. Each nomination will earn your division a point for the Divisional Cup for September. When the nomination process ends, AAP will confer and select up to three (3) inductees per division. They may choose less depending on testimony and evidence provided. Previous OTM/OTY/Award nominations will be considered when going over nominations. The inductees who are selected will be announced at a KSI-wide Live Stream on the Final Day of Fall Classic in late September and Spring Break in late March. Some tweaks may occur before the nominations open, but here is the template you will be provided to use: --- Information on Nominee: Division:
      Gamertag:
      Link to Profile: Qualifications: Nominee’s Current Rank:
      Has Nominee been in this division for at least six (6) months?
      Has Nominee been in KSI for at least one (1) year? Awards: Has Nominee been awarded Outstanding Service Level 1?
      Please list other awards this member has received: Testimony: Why does this member belong in your division’s Hall of Fame? --- Retired/Ex-Divisional Members Retired Members may be able to be inducted throughout the year by applying in the AAP section. They will submit a normal AAP post following the usual award template, and witnesses will be outlined in the form. The same process will be used for Directors/Seniors/Etc. who are still in the community, but not currently within the division they made their ascent in. If the strength of the witnesses is to par, they will be inducted on the spot following an AAP vote. Current Hall of Fame Members Current KSI Hall of Famers will be retroactively inducted into their division's Hall of Fame. Display of Divisional Hall of Famers Divisional Hall of Famers will be displayed for eternity within the Clan Ops Information Center, with blurbs from the testimony provided during the nomination process. Becoming a Divisional Hall of Fame inductee is no minor accomplishment and we will proudly display their gamertags for future generations of KSI members to look at as an example of what a great KSI member is. --- So that's the system, and we will be moving forward with this process. We will review the process periodically to see if there will be new tweaks to make it run more efficiently. The first nomination period will be from August 20 - September 15, with winners announced during Fall Classic. Thank you for your support and happy nominating. - KSI ImPyyy 7

    December's Aspen Getaway Where would you host it? Aspen, Colorado. Hands-freaking-down. I mean, bottomless funds yeah. I'd buy a huge luxury cabin with room enough for 200ish people. How many people would you invite? Who would you invite? Max capacity yo. Bottomless funds, I'd probably rent out some hotels as well. The more the merrier. Why would you only want a "couple close friends" when you have UNLIMITED MONEY??? I'd get my whole division up in there. Who would you be the most excited to see? @KSI ShadowFoxx because I mock her and I think she hates me for it. Honestly though, I'd be stoked to see everyone. What would you spend your time doing? Gaming? Swimming? Having a bonfire? Ha. No. Nothing quite that lame. We'd go over to Snowmass and tear up the powder ALLLLL DANG DAYYYY. Skiing, boarding, sledding. All of it. Then we'd do the whole bonfire and food thing. Probably more than one fire. Definitely beer and cheesy fries as well. How long would this trip last for? It's MY luxury cabin. There's no checkout time. (Obviously I'd have to go kick people out EVENTUALLY. But hey. Unlimited funds. I could pay people to leave. And then come back again. Circle of life. Woo-hoo.) What kind of food would there be? We'd have an UNLIMITED buffet. Catered by State 38 and Element 47. Check em out! What would your music playlist look like? Probably 80's & 90's classic rock, ballads, throwbacks. Who wants that new crap, ya know?

    If you had bottomless funds and could host a KSI get together, what would it be like? Where would you host it? Super Paradise Beach, Mykonos Island, Greece How many people would you invite? Who would you invite? I would invite every willing person from this community Who would you be the most excited to see? My good friends Odinn, Hatter, December, Avenger, Roar What would you spend your time doing? Gaming? Swimming? Having a bonfire? Anything and everything! It is a giant party destination. We would let loose and just have a good time. How long would this trip last for? At least 3 weeks!! It would be awesome for sure, but at some point I would like to return home and just relax. What kind of food would there be? I guess whatever foods are native to Greece but probably a lot of stuff we are used to. What would your music playlist look like? A lot of 80s, 90s, and early 00s party jams.

    Favorite 7 ?

    I have two favorite 7's and it's KSI Havoc 7 and KSI Harmony 7. Havoc is my favorite 7 because he has helped me with almost everything as i joined KSI. Although it was late, he made sure that even though KSI is a family, it's also something that have serious aspects of it. Harmony is my favorite 7 because she's like a bestfriend to me. We both are a part of the News Team and she's the reason why i'm an officer now. She also helped me with knowing the boundaries of KSI and the do's and don'ts of KSI and i feel like if i continue to learn from the both of them, i can be a 7 just like them @KSI Havoc 7 @Nikki Cola

    Weird Things We Love!

    OK so I'm curious about not the not so average things people here love. Examples, smell of old books, the smell of gasoline, Thunderstorms etc. What is something others may find a little odd but you can't get enough of? For me its actually A lot; I love sevre thunderstorms and i don't get them often when I'm from. Like it puts me into a state of relaxation almost. I do also oddly like the smell of gas and diesel fuel, but thats cause of how i grew up. I also love the smell that comes with rain both before its rains and afterwards.

    Gamertag: KSI GreendayFox Rank: 4th Captain Time in KSI: Was in KSI from July 24th 2013 - September 2015 and rejoined in February 2018 Opinion: When I first joined into KSI it was back when my squad was Call of Duty Black Ops 2 on the Xbox 360 and I feel like the system of recruiting back then was a lot easier than it is now. We had the mass messaging option to do but now its replaced with group messages and I know myself and a lot of people find that annoying or getting constant notifications of "So and so posted a Looking For Group on Call of Duty" I finally found how to turn off these notifications but the fact of the matter is either we message one person at a time from our recent players list or we do a lfg post on a game and yes that is a better option but our posts get lost in a pile of other people posting just wanting to play a game not go get recruited. Another thing is its hard to get people in from certain games just because the quality of people is low and the patience to sit and look or wait for the right people could get to someone and make them not want to recruit at all. Myself I found myself wanting people to just get involved more in the community activities more than going out and recruiting because I feel like meeting the people im around now is more important than the ones I don't know and might not even play with but this is something i know i need to work on but it wouldn't just be me with this problem and something else is morale of the people who should be recruiting if the morale is low then we aren't going to get recruits telling the officer staff they are always doing the wrong thing doesn't help and could just lead to rebellious attitudes and if they hear about say TSB or XDG stuff we now have to worry about people getting easily influenced about what community is right but i know not everything can be fixed but this is just stuff i have noticed being in and out of KSI.

Who would you be the most excited to see? What would you spend your time doing? Gaming? Swimming? Having a bonfire? How long would this trip last for? What kind of food would there be? What would your music playlist look like? As an avid person to have get-togethers, this would be a stellar time among our KSI family! Members and their immediate family will be flying into the United States, (make sure you have your passports ready!), to Michigan's glorious and relaxing Western Coastline. Here, they will find beautiful sandy beaches, crystal clear waterlines, and enough fun to outlast the World's carnival. Upon arrival, everyone will be checking into the booked hotel rooms dedicated for this week long adventure. In each room, a welcome gift bag, consisting of KSI Guest merchandise (T-shirts sporting KSI, your div, and squad), bracelets, and some rockin socks), will be waiting on the table. Since this is family orientated, there will be a week long fair, gaming area, and awesome childcare to keep our little members in the making satisfied while others are taking part in water activities, and just hanging out. There will be nightly concerts for ALL ages, followed by the best fireworks the would even rival Disney! Getting hungry? Don't worry. Food will be catered, family style, for every meal. No need to worry about cooking on your vacation, unless you really want to. If that's the case, then the hotel kitchen is open for concoctions to be made! In the end, we would just hope that everyone would have a great time, and forget about the worries of our daily lives for just a minute. Memories made would be extraordinary, and friendships would be cultivated to last a lifetime! Yeah, this sounds like a great time to me, how about you?

    Member Retention Workshop Workshop Introduction: Recruiting is a good way to grow a squad, but it takes retention to keep them around. Not only does effective retention provide growth within the squad and division but it also provides experience for officers and leadership to ensure the health of your division. Depending on your availability or your squads gametype the methods discussed in this workshop can increase your chance of retaining members. Note: While it is important when covering this workshop, that you go in detail, please remember to know your audience and keep them engaged. Keep that in mind, and make sure that the way you present this workshop, and the way that you go about hosting it, still allow for a fun, collaborative, and open learning environment. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Before We Begin (Pre-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics) The following questions may be used as a conversation starter before beginning your workshop. As will be mentioned later, it’s important to make sure you begin by getting everyone thinking about the topic at hand. What has kept you in KSI up until this point? What do you wish your squad or division did more of when you joined? What do you wish your squad or division did more of right now? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Core of the Program (Workshop Topics, Progression and Key Points) Workshop Curriculum Introduction: Recruiting can sometimes become a never ending process. Officers often become recruiting machines due to the mindset of continuous growing and ending that mindset can be difficult. Unfortunately, many recruits leave or are lost in the first month of joining. To sustain a healthy squad, you must recruit and retain. The two go hand in hand, remember to never lean one way more than the other. The topics listed below represent several ways to retain members and allow them a better chance of growing in KSI. Important Workshop Technical Note: This workshop will be interactive, please provide personal experiences while asking the audience their experiences along with what they desired from their squads. Member Retention Methods: Be Attentive Be Lenient Be a Friend Be a Leader 1. Be Attentive Being attentive to your squadmates can mean the difference between a failing squad and a flourishing one. Periodically, people will go on vacations or lose their Xbox membership and forget to inform anyone. This can lead to trouble and by frequently making rounds through the squad, you’ll be able to see if certain members haven’t been on for a few days. If you notice this, you should start making inquiries. Knowing whether a member could use a hand with a monthly membership or if they’ve begun to feel detached from the squad speaks volumes of friendship and compassion. Another reason members can become distant is if they are looking for players to play competitively or they simply don't play the games you do. If you can identify this early on, you can make adjustments. These adjustments could be something such as a squad transfer or simply an introduction to other members with similar tastes. Note: One of the worst things to hear getting back from a 10 day Xbox hiatus is that no one in your squad even noticed you were gone. Always keep in contact with our members. 2. Be Lenient It’s unrealistic to expect every KSI member to act and talk and socialize the same. The reality is, everyone is different. Sometimes people can carry a lot of baggage but in the end, it’s all about drawing a line in the sand and standing by it. We have a Code of Conduct that explicitly states the do’s and don’ts of KSI. That doesn’t mean there aren’t grey areas. Unless someone is being very toxic or has a history of extreme negativity, try to be lenient with them. We all have faults and being able to work around these faults makes us that much better of a person. When hosting gamenights, workshops, and meetings, don't enforce members to attend. Be lenient and only encourage participation. Example: You’re playing Rainbow Six Siege and your squadmate accidentally kills you. Don’t freak out! Just laugh it off and let it slide. The last thing you want to do is make their memory of what should be a fun night into a screaming match over an irrelevant death in a video game. 3. Be a Friend A simple fact of life is that we all need friends. For some, Xbox can offer an escape from reality. We’re no longer “John” or “Sarah” but instead we’re “KSI Hershey” or “KSI Snickers”. Remember that everyone can use a shoulder to cry on at some point or another. Members of KSI are not just numbers on the forums or names on a squad tag, we are real people and KSI is our family. Unfortunately, leaving your baggage at the door can be harder than we think so be open and available to your members. Ask them how their week is going or how their family is doing. Members always feel better when they aren’t treated like just another statistic. 4. Be a Leader As the community grows, the need for leaders expands. Leaders are people who not only host events, workshops and gamenights but to also educate other members. When people take interest in tournaments and competitive gaming, officers and leaders can use this opportunity to create an experience that will keep members around. Hosting events in a timely and organized fashion creates a healthier environment for recruits and by giving the members control over what is happening in the squad provides them with the feeling of unity. Remember that as leaders it is our responsibility to understand that no one is perfect and not every member is going to be here forever, but while they are here, we must aim to make it an experience of a lifetime. Note: Remember that being a leader requires time, dedication, knowledge, and respect. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Debrief (Post-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics) The Following questions can be used as a conversation starter following the conclusion of your workshop. 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. Is there any other ways you can increase member retention? Out of the topics above, which can you approve upon and why? Why do you think it is important to ensure member retention?

Having a bonfire? How long would this trip last for? What kind of food would there be? What would your music playlist look like? My KSI get together is gunna be a little different then most as KSI has been like a family to me, I would host the get together in Canada. (I know nothing special right?) My guest list would be as follows @KSI BadKitty 7 @KSI Gambit 7 @KSI God Zeus @KSI HarleyQuinn @KSI FluffyPup 7 @impyyy @KSI Bushy 7 @KSI xKamikaze @Sir Galahad @I am FuzzyMeep™ and naturally @KSI Igan o7 (does he even need an invite?) I would be excited to see each and everyone of these people since they have all done something to impact my life but if I had to choose I would say Igan. The trip would be a week long enough time to be able to ride a moose, drink maple syrup, play some kick ass video games and lastly and the whole reason this is coming together to be at my wedding! I would have an all you can eat buffet with a wide selection of tacos, seafood, steaks, and I suppose I will put some veggies in there.... the play list hasn't been created yet due to the fact I haven't actually been able to sit down and plan the whole thing out yet with my fiancé...

    I would host the event at an expo center none in particular but just a place that has a fairly decent sized flat land next to it. On this land I would set up a carnival, but before that I would take a survey asking people what their favorite carnival ride is then depending on how many I'd set up most of the rides. In the expo center itself I would hold multiple gaming tournaments for console and PC making sure I had all the games people wanted to play. As for who I would invite i believe it would have to be all of KSI because all of you have become like my second family. Being a carnival i would have food stands that had a large variety of foods even healthy and gluten free ones for others. I would make the event last 5 days for two reasons. 1. The tournaments might take a while and 2. For those who couldn't make it. At the end of each day there would either a fireworks show, bonfire, flying lantern ceremony, etc... As to which person I'll want to see the most... probably everyone seeing as how I've never seen anyone one of you guys in real life. Music is the rough choice i cant just have every single type of music playing cause not everyone likes the smae thing. But I'll probably just end up doing 5 different types of music on each day. That would be my idea for a good fun get together
