    So... hi?
  4. Oustanding Service lvl 2 for KSI xKing 77

    I have not worked with King nearly as much as I have seen his impact on this community. This leader is full of ideas, determination, and a willingness to grow and learn. I have seen him, many times, go out of his way to support his members in more ways than one. When I was going through a rough time, King reached out to me and gifted me a game on Xbox that my squad played - I did not have the funds to purchase the game myself at the time. This game meant more than just a game, this game allowed for me to feel so much more in tune with this community. He asked for nothing in return, other than my enjoyment of the game and of KSI. When I worked with King as a division leader, he was stubborn, headstrong, and passionate. Everything he did was for his members and for his division. He still maintains these qualities, only now in a much better manner. Members throughout this community look up to him. He has grown as a leader substantially and nowadays, I am proud to call him my arch nemesis.

  11. Conflict Resolution Workshop Workshop Introduction: We will always face conflicts, but how we tackle these conflicts speak for our character. Knowing how to understand both or more sides and diffuse a situation shows maturity, leadership and strength. The topics we are going to talk about will explain how to resolve a conflict peacefully. Remember that resolving conflicts can be difficult, but there is always a solution. The hard truth is that some of the solutions won't seem fair, but using the knowledge passed in this workshop will help guarantee that it truly is. 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. It's important to make sure you begin by getting everyone thinking about the topic at hand. What is one conflict you've faced, and how did you handle it? What is the most important aspect of conflict resolution? (This could mean anything - the solution, the learning, making members feel heard, timeliness, etc.) Conflicts can come in all shapes and sizes. What does it mean to you to prepare for the worst? Why do you think it would be important to follow up with people after a conflict resolution? Has anyone ever helped you grow as a leader by assisting with a conflict resolution? What did you learn? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Intro to Conflict Resolution What is conflict resolution? Conflict, arguments, and change are natural aspects of our lives. Conflict resolution is a way for two or more parties to find a peaceful solution to a disagreement among them. The disagreement may be personal, emotional, clan-ops or work based. When a dispute arises, often the best course of action is negotiation to resolve the disagreement. Conflict resolution through negotiation can be good for all parties involved. Often, each side will get more by participating in negotiations than they would by walking away, and it can be a way for your members to get resources that might otherwise be out of reach. There will always be occasions in which negotiation is not available. However, the goal for every conflict is indeed a negotiation. The goals of negotiation are: To produce a solution that all parties can agree to. To work as quickly as possible to find this solution. To improve, not hurt, the relationship between the groups in conflict. Why should you resolve a conflict? The main goal of conflict resolution is to come to an agreement that benefits all parties. Other reasons to resolve conflicts can include the Ability to understand all parties. Goal in being a proactive leader. Allow the opportunity for leaders to grow. To present the most peaceful solutions that are fair to all members. Note: If you can resolve a conflict while teaching and mentoring the members, you are allowing yourself the opportunity to inspire future leaders. We continue to lead by example by making the best out of the worst situations and allowing for members to feel heard. When should you resolve a conflict? Some conflicts require attention from different leaders. Many of which can be solved via officers within a squad but there are some that may require upper leadership to be involved. Do resolve conflicts in situations where you are prepared and equipped to provide a solution. A few of these can be member disagreements, slander, and inappropriate gameplay. Do not resolve a conflict when you are involved with a conflict of interest nor in a situation where you are not prepared or equipped to provide a solution. A few of these can be a breach in the Code of Conduct, self harm or threats of self harm, or a issue with a leader who is not within your jurisdiction to correct. A few examples are listed below. Example: Self harm and suicide threats should be handled by, at minimum, a Director. Poaching should be handled by, at minimum, the divisional 7s staff. Inappropriate gameplay should be handled by, at minimum, an officer. Note: Certain conflicts will need to be handled by the appropriate leaders. If you are unsure as to whether or not you should resolve a conflict, follow your rank structure. 5 Steps to Conflict Resolution Step 1: Be prepared Show empathy - Showing your members that you understand how they feel allows them to be more open to solutions. Use a third party mediator - This eliminates the chance of any "he said, she said" issues as well as provides another unbiased viewpoint Know all sides to the story - Education about the issue at hand will expedite better conflict resolutions. Hear all sides to the story. Listen to each party separately to gather as much information as possible. You should be able to see the big picture before entering into all conflicts. Look beyond the issue - Often, it is not the situation but the perspective on the situation that causes anger to fester and ultimately leads to a shouting match or other visible—and disruptive—evidence of a conflict. Where did the conflict stem from? Be impartial - If you do not have the ability to do that, find someone without bias to assist with your conflict resolution. Your personal feelings towards someone, whether good or bad, should never have an impact on the decisions you make as a leader, and even more so as someone who solves conflicts. Be proactive - Don't wait to handle an issue! Once you have all of the information you need, tackle the issue at hand. Leaving it will only allow the conflict to fester and grow. Listen actively - Paying attention pays off! Hope for the best, prepare for the worst - Have a plan of action for every way the conversation can go. Keep an open mind - Be willing to adapt and listen! Step 2: Control the room Regardless of what situation you’re facing, your tone of voice goes a long way in controlling the room. There is never a need to scream or yell, rather speak with confidence and a tone of firm assurance. Regarding emotion, it is crucial to keep yours controlled and in check, especially when whomever you’re speaking to is upset. Lastly, in issues involving two opposite sides or conflicts between members, keeping a neutral and open-minded perspective will ultimately produce the best outcome for all parties involved, including yourself. As a leader you will undoubtedly deal with situations that are difficult on a personal level. In those times, it is critical that you remember, and adhere to the ideas listed below. Invite Only Party. Politely remove any non-essential guests or members. Stay calm and keep a steady tone of voice. Maintain emotional control at all times. Uphold a neutral, and professional position, regardless of personal feelings. Step 3: Identify the problem When identifying the problem always pay attention to specific details and information from reliable witnesses. Remember to include your own observations when discussing the issue with the members involved. You must set aside the facts and pay attention to the details and the factual information over the person or people individually. Always ask the other party how they feel about it, never assume how one feels. Ask both parties for their side of the story, never explain the situation for them. You are listening for the most acceptable course of action. Point out the merits of various ideas, not only from each other’s perspective, but in terms of the benefits to the community. Note: Remember to discuss what caused the situation. Does everyone have the information they need? Does everyone have the skills they need? Does everyone understand expectations? What are the obstacles? Step 4: Agree on a solution You've identified the source, now it's time to make a change for the better. Remember that no one solves conflicts the same way. There are many ways to come to a decision about your conflict. Competing: win, you lose: Use when in a situation that needs an immediate solution or an unpopular decision. Do not use when the outcome does not matter to you or you are not the most knowledgeable person on the topic. Collaborating: Both sides win: Use when the objective is to learn from the conflict, or when the viewpoints from both sides are too important to be compromised. Do not use when the conflicts are more trivial or when a quick decision is imperative to the conflict. Compromising: Neither side wins: Use as a temporary solution, or when the situation is time sensitive. Do not use when compromising would undermine the values of our community. Avoiding: Nobody wins: Use when emotions are high and people need to calm down, or when more information is necessary before fully resolving the conflict. Do not use when the situation needs to be defused quickly or if the reason for avoiding the conflict is simply to avoid the conflict. Accommodating: I lose, you win: Use when preserving harmony is the most important aspect in the situation, or when member development is the focus. Do not use when safety is the most important aspect of the conflict resolution. These are the more broad terms to conflict resolution, however, every conflict will have a different outcome. These generalizations of solutions are only here to help with deciding the best course to take for each situation. Most of the time, collaborating and accommodating are going to be the first resort. Conflicts that would result in a blacklist or a security risk would be labelled as competing. When deciding the best course of action always find the best solution for all parties. Set clear guidelines for future expectations and set goals to accomplish and encourage growth and learning from all parties. Note: Take advantage of conflicts and use them to pass on your learning experiences, and others', to those learning beneath you. Mentor members to solve conflicts, as well as avoid creating conflicts. Step 5: Follow up Check in with all parties to ensure that they are okay with the conflict resolution. Check on the progress on the goals that had been set and encourage learning with every occasion. Ensure that grudges are not being held and that working relationships are still functioning in all aspects and pay attention to every side of the conflict until you are certain that it no longer is a conflict. It is important, when resolving conflicts, to learn from the situation. Most problems are handled reactively. However, a good leader will take that issue and set up proactive measures to keep it from happening again. A few questions that can assist with this are: What action plans will you put in place to prevent conflicts from arising in the future? What will you do if problems arise in the future? What would you do better the next time around? Note: Reactive means to react to the past and proactive means to prevent issues from arising in the future. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 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. What is one conflict you've handled that you would handle differently now? What would you change? What kind of goals or future expectations have you seen as a product of conflict resolutions? Are you reactive or proactive? Which one is better suited for leadership? Why?

  13. News: Writing 101 (Rough Draft)

    Writing 101 Guide (News & History only) 1. Title Don’t be offended if we change it! We have Twitter character counts to meet, as well as we like to provide uniformity between previously published articles. 2. Keyword You want to walk in to every article with a keyword or phrase in mind. You will use this keyword in the title, in the subheadings, and should be a recurring theme throughout the entirety of the article. 3. Article Status Pitch - personally chosen article or idea, title/placeholder Assigned - assigned article, no content or minimal content Draft - substantial content but not ready for review Pending Review - optimal content, ready for review and editing 4. Categories Select a category if available and obvious If unsure, leave uncategorized 5. Article Text BEST OPTION: Write and save article content directly on If copy and pasting content is necessary, make sure content is in “plain text format” (can copy content to Notes to change to plain text format) Topic Headings - HEADING 3 Topic Subheading - HEADING 5 6. Profile Bio Profile > Edit My Profile > Biographical Info > add “(Department Title) | (Clan Ops Squad & Division) | (Discord username)” Titles: Writer, Historian, Anchor, Public Events Representative Profile Bio appears at the end of every article that’s published on General 1. Know what you want to say “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” Before you start an article, have a clear purpose and stick to it. 2. No one cares about your opinion. Well, most of the time. Use objective facts to validate your subjective opinion. If you’re going to give an opinion, justify it. Limit the use of the word “I.” Mentioning yourself every now and then is fine, however, you should be aiming to tell a story about something other than yourself. 3. Outline Organization makes complexity understandable. Begin your article with an introduction and end your article with a conclusion. Use subheadings in the middle of your article to separate different types of information, aka Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. The amount of subheadings can and will vary. Title these sections according to the information within them. *Use Heading 3 for topics, Heading 5 for sub-topics 4. Anticipate Questions Be the devil’s advocate and put yourself in your reader’s shoes. What would the reader ask me if he read this? Did I provide enough context? Will the reader be able to understand the point being made? 5. Don’t over-explain Keep things simple. Don’t repeat what you have already said. If content isn’t essential, consider eliminating it. Don’t overwhelm your reader with trivial details. 6. Don’t write like you talk The “path” an idea takes from the brain to the paper is not always the smoothest. An idea should be revised more than once before being finalized. If you write like you talk - 99% of the time - the words WILL sound stupid when read. Don’t be afraid to spend some time enhancing what you have written - replacing words with better vocabulary, etc. 7. Passive Voice vs Active Voice A sentence structured as “active voice” is a sentence where subject performs the action. A sentence structured as “passive voice” is a sentence where the subject receives the action. Example: Passive - Why was the road crossed by the chicken? / Active: Why did the chicken cross the road? Another example 8. Stick with Simple Words There are 3 types of words: 1. Words we know - USE 2. Words we should know - USE WITH RESTRAINT 3. Words we don’t know - DON’T USE Unless you intend to be poetic, keep your language simple and direct. Million-dollar words make you sound like you don't know what you're talking about, especially if you don’t know how to use them correctly. 9. Keep your sentences short. No more than 20% of what you write should contain sentences longer than 20 words. Try to keep it simple, stupid. 10. Read what you write. If it sounds stupid when you read it out loud, it’s stupid. 11. Let your personality come through. When it’s relevant, throw in personal anecdotes. Don’t be afraid to make it “you.” Have humor and intelligence when presenting information. 12. Start in the middle. *This is not mandatory. Start by writing main content first, then add an intro/conclusion after. Let the content determine the tone of the intro/conclusion. 13. Get someone to proofread. Ask a friend, editor, or News Head to help you make sure that your article substance and presentation are acceptable and understandable! 14. Don’t confuse “Conclusion” with “Summary.” A summary is a condensed restatement of previously mentioned ideas and topics A conclusion is a closing statement that ties together previously mentioned ideas and topics, relating them directly back to the title and purpose of the article Grammar & Punctuation 1. Limit the prepositions. To, of, about, at, before, after, by, behind, during, for, from, in, over, under, with Example: Unacceptable: “It is best to behave with caution when running with a sword in the presence of Magneto.” Acceptable: “In the presence of Magneto, it is best not to run with a sword.” 2. Don’t pad weak verbs with adverbs! “Ran really fast” vs “Sprinted” “The man drew his heavy sword as he slowly walked forward.” vs “The man drew his weighty blade has he crept forward.” 3. Don’t repeat significant adjectives throughout your article. If you use the word “exhilarating” in an article, for God’s sake, don’t use it a second time. USE A THESAURUS! Synonyms are a good thing! Example: fast - quick, speedy, like a laser! 4. Use of contractions - sense the tone. And be careful when your water breaks. For an audience such as ours, the use of contractions vs no contractions should be about 30/70, respectively. Contractions tend to convey laziness - it is wise to limit their use. Less contractions = more formality. More contractions = less formality. Can’t vs cannot Don’t vs do not Isn’t and is not You’re and you are They’re and they are He’d and he would 5. Homonyms Words that sound alike but have different meanings and spellings Your vs you’re There vs their vs they’re Who vs whom (replace who with he or she, replace whom with him or her) Maybe vs may be It’s vs its Affect vs effect (verb vs noun) Accept vs except (receive vs exclude) Capital vs Capitol (money vs government) Elicit vs Illicit (draws out vs dirty) Than vs then (than compares more than one thing, then is cause/effect) To vs too Never add an “s” to anyway 6. Eliminate Filler Words At all times - Watch out for flabby phrases at all times. Each and every - Look for filler words in your writing each and every day daily. As yet - We don’t know as yet whether we’ll succeed. In order - Eliminate excess verbiage in order to clean up your writing. Basically, essentially - These words basically don’t add value. They are essentially useless. Totally, completely, absolutely, literally, actually - Without filler words, your writing will be totally fabulous. Very, really, quite, rather, extremely - These very common words are really not useful. They’re rather dull. Simply - Simply don’t use this word often. Pretty - It’s a pretty good idea to use this one sparingly, too. Just - If your sentence works without it, you just don’t need this word. That - This is a word that you should only use when you need it for clarity. Up, down - We don’t care whether you stand up or sit down to write, just write cleanly! In the process of - We’re in the process of learning to remove wordiness. As a matter of fact - As a matter of fact, your skills have improved. All of - All of your readers will enjoy reading cleaner copy. As being - You’ll be known as being a proficient writer! Being that - Being that because you’re the best writer in your class, you’re sure to get good grades. During the course of - During the course of the writing lesson, we learned some new tricks! For all intents and purposes, For the most part - For all intents and purposes, our writing has improved. At this point in time - You don’t need to use filler words at this point in time now. 7. Commas, not comas. The comma (,) is a punctuation mark used mainly to separate parts of a sentence, such as clauses and items in lists. 1. Use a comma before any coordinating conjunction (and, but, for, or, nor, so, yet) that links two independent clauses. Example: "I went running, and I saw a duck." An independent clause is a unit of grammatical organization that includes both a subject and verb and can stand on its own as a sentence. In the previous example, "I went running" and "I saw a duck" are both independent clauses, and "and" is the coordinating conjunction that connects them. Consequently, we insert a comma. 2. Use a comma after a dependent clause that starts a sentence. Example: "When I went running, I saw a duck." A dependent clause is a grammatical unit that contains both subject and verb but cannot stand on its own, like "When I went running ..." 3. Use commas to separate items in a series. Example: "I saw a duck, a magician, and a liquor store when I went running." When in doubt, LEAVE IT OUT! 8. Hyphen vs Em Dash The hyphen (‐) is a punctuation mark used to join words and to separate syllables of a single word. The em dash (—) may be used instead of a comma to set off a parenthetical element in a sentence. Em dashes are always more emphatic than commas. Example: The girl, who was living in an off-campus apartment at the time, was fond of music, dancing, and poetry. Example: The girl —who was living in an off-campus apartment at the time— was fond of music, dancing, and poetry. 9. Colon Use A colon instead of a semicolon may be used between independent clauses when the second sentence explains, illustrates, paraphrases, or expands on the first sentence. Example: He got what he worked for: he really earned that promotion. 10. Semicolon Use Rules for Using Semicolons; A semicolon is most commonly used to link (in a single sentence) two independent clauses that are closely related in thought. When a semicolon is used to join two or more ideas (parts) in a sentence, those ideas are then given equal position or rank. Example: Some people write with a word processor; others write with a pen or pencil. 11. cAPITaLIZE cORrECTLY Proper nouns, names, cities, specific places/things, beginning of sentence 12. Pronoun Confusion Correct: “She and I went to the mall” Incorrect: “Her and I went to the mall” If both pronoun subjects cannot stand alone in a complete sentence, then they are incorrect.

Something bad happens, he is the first one there. He is the first one to communicate about an issue. He is always helping other members in need. Sinz is the ideal Lieutenant in any squad. Not only is he knowledgeable, he is personable and efficient. Sinz' name is known throughout this community because he actively goes out of his way to appreciate KSI as a community, rather than just simply EO.

Each year, it gets easier, but BadKitty and her T&E staff did a wonderful job this year (it's not that the other departments didn't, T&E just has most of the responsibility). Everything was on time, everything was moderated. Although BadKitty had a lot going on - clan-ops, forums, T&E - she was still such a prominent member in Spirit Week to win QUEEN. So all hail the queen! Department Member Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad) - KSI December 77 (Editor of News & History Team) Link to forums account - @December 77 Reasoning why they deserve this - Wow. So, Spirit Week is over. Yet little did everyone know that December was behind most of News' success in covering Spirit Week. He was online for every event, available for advice and feedback, and ensured each and every article was posted flawlessly. He has been the ideal news member from the day that he joined, but only recently had the chance to show that off to this community. He was the biggest help this week and even this entire month with his dedication to our members.
  15. KSI December 77 Outstanding Service (LV1)

    This wonderful, wonderful man that we call December is so much more than just outstanding. I have been working with him for a short amount of time, yet he has impressed me so much more than so many others have, even after years of knowing them. December went above and beyond this Spirit Week, assisting with coverage of every event. He reached out to the members, offered assistance and guidance, and was consistent. His role of editor was a recently gained role, yet he has made so much of an impact on both the History and News teams. Not only does he offer his time and assistance, December is always coming up with ideas as to how the News or History teams can become better and more efficient. He remembers things and prioritizes, both are traits of a strong leader. News just recently came out with a writing 101 workshop, which was inspired and orchestrated by December himself (with a little bit of editing help), that has helped out writers understand English on a better level. We will be releasing this to the public soon. He is currently juggling the News Team and his position within clan ops quite amazingly. December is an intelligent leader and I have witnessed on numerous occasions him handling issues with ease, using those occasions at teaching opportunities. Clan ops always comes first, as it should. He is not afraid to tell me that he has to go deal with an LS problem and that we will continue the News discussion at a later time. Straight-forward, to the point, and honest are all qualities that December shows on a regular basis. I am proud to have December as a part of my team, because he is utterly and absolutely more than outstanding.
