  1. This month's SYTYCW theme is Short Stories. We, as the News Team, are asking members to take the time to write a short story for KSI. Please keep it PG-13 but write about whatever you wish. Keep in mind that if it is not PG-13, it will be removed from the site. Please try to aim for 300 words, as it is one of the things the writers will look at when nominating the winners. If you cannot reach this quota, that is also okay. Everyone is encouraged to participate! This thread will be open until December 27th, so help us spread the word! The top three posts will receive the award "Write Right." We will also be keeping track of all divisions that participate. Divisions with the most participation within the departments will receive a special award come Spirit Week!
  2. Squad Tags What is a squad tag? An Xbox account meant to manage a squad within a division A member management system A private account meant for the general or acting general only Should only be accessed via Xbox. Why? When a squad changes generals, and this happens fairly often, the account is pulled and the password is changed. If the account is logged on to a cellular device, computer, tablet, or any other device capable of internet connection, the password is normally saved. If the account is logged on to any of these devices, the profile becomes crippled and will need to be re-created. Should not ever be in an Xbox Live party. Why? These accounts do not belong to the members, they belong to the community. With the lack of Xbox live for silver accounts on the 360, this was not a problem. Now that "Gold sharing" is a thing, having these squad tags in Xbox Live parties endangers them to the risk of being hit offline, friends lists being revealed, squads being attacked. What are squad tags intended to be used for? Managing incoming and outgoing members Providing a list of people in the squad to turn to in order to find someone to game with Sending out messages a minimum of 3 times a week What are some messages that should be sent out every week? Squad Meetings Weekend Warfare Happy Hour Game Nights What are some of the other reasons you may need to send out extra messages? Blacklists Security Risks De-fluffing Potential game type changes Access Denied What is Access Denied? A member management system Generals and higher only Is not to be mentioned by name in front of lower ranking members. Why? Having the name makes access to the site to easy (Google). We do not want this information falling into the wrong hands. How does Access Denied help leaders? Members are found more easily Upkeep with members Upkeep with games and game types Descriptions - What can they be used for? Officer potential Officer rank Other game types members have Activity levels Fluff Leaders List Access List (Lv 3 and higher) Shows last time online Should be used to keep an eye on divisional 7s and generals Why is it important to log on to Access Denied at least once a week? (Ideally, members should really go no longer than 3 days offline) As a general, people will be coming from and leaving squads on a regular basis. This will build up if not kept up with As a co-founder, Access Denied should be used to keep an eye on generals and make sure their squads are being updated accurately and correctly Lv 3 and higher, Access Denied should be used to keep tabs on all leaders in your division, ensure all updates are consistently occurring correctly Access Denied and Squad Tag Both should be accessed almost daily, no less than once every 7 days. Longer than 7 days offline can mean disciplinary actions Both are extremely important in squad management Members come and go, this helps leaders keep track Messages convey important information, access to all members at once Do not share your password to either of these accounts, ever.

  9. Divisional Transfers

    The two week transfer is used to unsure all parties that must approve a transfer do approve it. Also, the two week hold stops most transfers from happening as well as gives the Division Leader time to handle the problem that is most likely pushing this member away. There are occasions in which the 2 week hold is waivered, normally when the transfer is causing more stress than it should. The list of people who must approve each transfer is as follows: Division Leader of the Division the member is transferring from Director of the Division the member is transferring from Director of the Division the member is transferring to Division Leader of the Division the member is transferring to
