  2. Squad Activity Guide Below is a guide on how to host five basic squad and divisional activities. These five activities include gamenights, workshops, squad meetings, and headhunters. Each one is critical to a squad and divisions success. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Gamenights Gamenights are crucial to squad activity and should happen often within your squad. These are the most common squad events and have the potential to be the most fun. There are many different types of gamenights, many of which are hosted in a party and game lobby, but some such as a karaoke gamenight are hosted differently. Below are tips for a successful, professional, and fun gamenight. Normal Gamenight: When hosting a gamenight on a selected game such as Halo, Call of Duty, or Destiny, make sure it is fun and competitive. While doing this, socialize with our members by talking to them. The most entertaining gamenights are a combination of good conversation and well laid out game types and maps. Announce your gamenight hours in advance to your members. Create an open party and game lobby. Invite all members of your squad and division. Plan your game-types and maps before your event, make sure you are prepared before your gamenight starts. If you must leave, find a replacement so the games continue. Keep things clean and competitive. Karaoke Gamenight: When hosting a karaoke gamenight, be sure to guarantee that all members feel welcome and safe at all times. For some, singing openly to a crowd of individuals can be a struggle and many are not open to it. Depending on how people react to an individual's performance, it can affect the members self esteem and feeling of welcomeness throughout the community. When you host these gamenights, it is critical that you control your lobby at all times. Announce your gamenight hours in advance to your members. Create an invite only party. Invite all members of your squad and division. Establish that no judgment, small or large, shall be passed to any member. Be prepared to sing yourself, if no one else will. Control your party. Have fun. Note: A gamenight’s success can depend solely on the host’s attitude and social skills, gamenights are meant to a fun activity open to all members of your squad. 2. Recruiting Lobby Recruiting lobbies are a great way to bring in new members as well as unite the squad for a singular goal. These lobbies are typically hosted by an officer along others that know the recruiting procedures. The goal of these lobbies are simple, have fun and talk to people. Depending on the game, it's common to find multiple people in game chat, which offers a vast opportunity for members to talk to potential recruits. When participating in one of these lobbies, guarantee that you keep yourself in check. We are to represent KSI as a positive gaming community at all times. If someone acts hostile towards you or your fellow members, mute them and do not feed into their conversation or hostility. Below are some simple steps to establish an effective recruiting lobby. Announce your recruiting lobby hours in advance to your members. Create and invite only party. Invite all members of your squad and division. Establish the ground rules. Switch to gamechat and have fun 3. Workshops: Workshops play a major role in the success of education throughout a squad and division. They range from topics such as recruiting, forums usage, and divisional leadership. When hosting a workshop, you must first begin by by establishing an effective platform for learning and teaching. If your party is too noisy, too crazy, or too unorganized, no productive activity can occur. As the party leader and the trainer for that workshop, you should be in total control of your room. Below are the basics steps to guarantee that your workshop will be fun, organized, and a place of learning. Announce your workshop hours in advance to your members. Create an invite only party Invite your squad and divisional members. Politely remove any non-essential guests or members. Make sure everyone knows the ground rules of the party, and its' purpose. Make sure the only person who has an active mic, is the person who has the floor. Come up with a way to signal questions, and or comments (i.e posting in the party chat, on Discord, or by private message). Give ample opportunity for interactive comments, questions, and discussion. Make sure that the party atmosphere is enjoyable. Note: These seven points above will ensure that you have taken the best possible steps towards ensuring that the environment you are creating is the environment to promote success. 4. Squad Meetings: Squad meetings are essential to a squads success. Not only do squad meetings have the ability to unite members but it is also a place for members to learn about events within the community as well as any notes you or your division may have. As the host, it is imperative that you are in control of your meeting and below are basic steps to guarantee that your meeting will be fun, organized, and informative. Announce your squad meeting hours ahead of the event to your members. Create an invite only party and invite all members from your squad into the meeting. Once your party is full, clearly establish that you have the floor. Start your meeting by discussing recent events. After you have briefly covered recent events, move on to current notes and events. After each note, ask if anyone has questions, concerns, or ideas. This can also be a great way to end your meeting. Note: If any questions or ideas brought up that you are unable to answer or address, bring it up the chain of command and return the following week with an answer. 5. HeadHunters: HeadHunters is an inter-community competitive atmosphere that involves teams from each division to prove their prowess and dominance over a certain game. The selected games that will serve as the theme for each season are comprised of the top 3 first person shooter franchises to date, Halo, Destiny, and Call of Duty, but are subject to change. The season consists of several weeks in which the participating teams will play a 12-16 game schedule against opposing divisions. This will ultimately lead to the play-offs. Like any other sporting event, play-off teams will be seated based off their record during the season and will play in a bracket until only one team remains and are therefore named the season champions. Below are basic requirements for your Head Hunters team. All team members must be ranked Corporal though General. Team rosters may not exceed 8 nor fall under 6 members. All team members are placed on the team based on kill count and the K/D spread throughout their tryouts. Note: Follow the link for all further information.

  11. Security Workshop Workshop Introduction: During your time in KSI, you may have heard your leaders mention communities that are security risked or blacklisted or they may talk about lockdowns and poaching, but what exactly does that mean? It’s important that you understand these concepts for the security and safety of our community. KSI is a friendly and safe gaming community but we need our members to help continue making this community a friendly and safe environment to game in. Being secure and taking precautions will ensure that we are being safe as an individual and as a whole. However, if precautions are not taken, this poses a threat to you, your squad, and your division. This workshop will cover what security risk, DNH, blacklist, and poaching mean, as well as how to create an effective lockdown for your squad or division. 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 Performance Operations 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. As will be mentioned later, it's important to make sure you begin by getting everyone thinking about the topic at hand. What is the difference between a security risk and blacklist? What communities are currently security risked and blacklisted? Why do we security risk and blacklist communities? What should we do if a security risked or blacklisted community contacts us? My friend joined a security risked or blacklisted community. Can I still hang out with or talk to them? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Core of the Program (Workshop Topics, Progression, and Key Points) Workshop Curriculum Introduction: Security risk, D.N.H., blacklist and poaching are a few terms that you may have heard when you were first recruited in to KSI, or occasionally emerge in your division’s discord server. To keep your squads and division secure, your leaders may initiate a lockdown. It is important that we understand these terms and the procedures we need to follow to keep KSI a fun and safe gaming environment, as mentioned in the Statement of Neutrality. Throughout this workshop we will discuss what it means to be security risked, D.N.H.’d, or blacklisted and the precautions that we need to take to protect ourselves, our squads, and our divisions from potential threats to our community. The following terms will be discussed during this workshop: Security Risk DNH Blacklist Lockdown Poaching Statement of Neutrality 1. D.N.H. A D.N.H., which means do not hire, refers to the removal of a member for breaking the C.o.C. with a serious enough breach to be removed from KSI, but not enough to be blacklisted. They are not allowed to join any division or program within KSI. However, they are allowed to play with other members in KSI. For these previous members to return, they must appeal their D.N.H. to the courts and have a successful appeal. 2. Security Risk A security risked individual is a previous or current member that has either associated with blacklisted or security risked Xbox users or communities, created situations that caused discord between members in a squad or division, mentioned past affiliations with specific clans or individuals, or created an undesirable and or uncomfortable environment within the squad or division. Divisional Security Risk: A security risked individual or clan/community is an individual or group who has caused discord between members in a squad or division, mentioned past affiliations with specific clans or individuals, or created an undesirable and or uncomfortable environment within the squad or division. If a individual is security risked from a division, they may interact with the community excluding the division they are security risked from. All members deemed security risks are subject to full investigation before admittance to another squad or division of KSI. Community Security Risk: Similar to a divisional security risk but applies to the entire community. No member of KSI is allowed to communicate with individuals or clans/communities that fall under this category. Those under this category should be avoided at all cost, with no exception. Example: A previous member of WD has been communicating with other communities about their squad and division, the individual provides the communities screenshots of arguments between members and has become security risked from WD. If the member chooses, they may join another division, but they may not speak to any member from WD. Note: All divisional security risks involving an individual stand until it is lifted. Community security risks are on a time frame before the are review by the senior leadership of KSI. TSB is currently a security risked community. 3. Blacklist A blacklisted individual is an individual that has broken one or multiple rules found in the C.o.C. in such a fashion that senior leadership has deemed them unfit for the community. Current members of KSI must remove and cease all contact with the individual once they have been blacklisted. These individuals are not permitted to be in or around KSI until the blacklist has been lifted. Note: If an individual has caused notable issues, within or outside a division, the leaders of that division can request senior leaders to look into the evidence to see if the individual should be blacklisted. MEA, J2H, and GRM are currently blacklisted from the community. 4. Lockdown Lockdowns can be placed in effect for a temporary time due to recent activity within a squad or division by security risked or blacklisted members or communities. There are communities who's sole focus is to cause discord and ddos members offline. Due to this potential threat, the following are precautions KSI uses to prevent any threats from becoming a reality during a lockdown. Inform all members of the lockdown and the community involved. All new recruits must have a gamerscore higher than 1000 and must be approved by the General. Regardless of ownership, all parties must be locked. All Discord instant invites must be created by a member of the 7s staff. Perform security checks on members and regularly check on them. 5. Poaching Poaching is the act of deliberately enticing or persuading any member of an existing community, division, or squad to leave and then join yours. This can be both externally or internally in regards to KSI and is forbidden. This act is generally performed by individuals who can not create their own squad, division or community due to lack of leadership abilities. If you can’t build something, don’t destroy what others have. How To Handle Poaching: There are multiple ways poachers will attempt to poach members from a squad or division. The most basic method is to send out messages and invite people into parties in attempt to persuade them into joining their community. The easiest precaution to take is to block communications, send out messages throughout your division notifying all the members to be on the lookout, and keep your members informed. This is a very basic strategy all divisions should be able to handle to prevent members from leaving. Keeping your members informed of a situation involving another community is the wisest thing you can do. Not only does it build a trust between you and your members, but it also prevents poachers from sharing false information, which is one of the most common ways to poach. While doing this, host gamenights each night. If members are having fun daily, they will not be easily persuaded to leave. 6. Statement of Neutrality KSl is a neutral and non-aggressive gaming entity. We neither condone nor participate in Clan Wars. We are a friendly and safe gaming community that works to foster and maintain a safe and positive gaming environment. Please remember that any community deemed to be security risked or blacklisted is there for a reason. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 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. Were you aware of these terms before attending this workshop? Which one or ones did you gain the most insight on? Have you ever experienced poaching? If so, how did you react? Was there anything that you didn’t fully understand, or still have questions about? Why do we security risk or blacklist individuals or communities? Do you think it helps keep our community safe? Thank you for your time and continued dedication to working towards making KSI a safe and friendly online gaming environment.
