      2019 KSI Donor/VIP Revamp   01/28/2019

      After much thought and re-work, the KSI Board is happy to announce the revamped and improved KSI VIP Donor System for 2019. Unlike the past where one donation netted someone the VIP group, now the group will reset on the 1st day of each year. Requirements In order to get re-added as a KSI VIP Donor, you will have to contribute in one of the following ways: Donate $10 to KSI's PayPal Donate at least 1000 bits to KSILive Sub to KSI for at least 2 months Once the new year begins, just donate in any of the 3 above ways and you will receive the 2019 Donor Award as well as the 2019 Donor Group. Just provide proof in the AAP area when you apply. Your donation can be made by someone else, so just have them provide you with the receipt. This only applies for PayPal donations and Subscribing. Bits must be your own. Donations can also add up, so you can contribute $5 for two months and receive it. Just keep the receipts as proof for your request and you will be given Donor access. With this revamp, we have improved the perks of donating to KSI. Because of your financial commitment, we want to reward you for believing in KSI and contributing in that way. Benefits Access to VIP Area on the forums to talk with other donors. 2019 Donor Forums award Special sneak previews of KSI News stories and community announcements Recognized on the KSI Front Page's Donor list Ability to give input on upcoming events, such as Divisional Cup, Spring Break, Spirit Week, Fall Classic, Turkey Bowl, and Award Show.

Overall We want to provide the best KSI experience for all of our members, and those who fund the websites, events, and so much more should be rewarded for contributing and believing in the community. So please enjoy this revamped system and allow us to work with you to forge a better, more inclusive KSI. Thank you, KSI Board of Directors

      KSI Spring Break 2019 Announcement   02/26/2019

      SPRING BREAK 2019! Hello! We are proud to announce the official schedule for KSI's 3rd Annual Spring Break, to be held Friday, March 29th - Sunday, March 31st, 2019! Spring Break event is momentous in several ways. It is the first large-scale competitive event on the 2019 calendar, and it serves as the official start of KSI's second round with the KSI Divisional Cup. As per every large event, there will be a schedule of events, a forums poll, and a scoring system to rank divisions in the order they finish. We will also be holding a Twitch Subscriber Lottery drawing for special prizes. Make sure to tune into our Spring Break oriented Town Hall on Friday, March 22nd!   Schedule: Friday, March 29th: (8 p.m. EST) PUBG Customs - 4v4  Halo 5 - 4v4 CTF GTAV - 7's Sumo  Saturday, March 30th: (8 p.m. EST) Rainbow Six Siege - 3v3 Bomb Overwatch - 4v4 TDM Prominence Poker - 7's Sunday, March 31st: (6 p.m. EST) CoD Bops 4 - 4v4 TDM CoD Bops 4 - 7's FFA   ** Sign-ups for these events will be posted up within the next day or two in the Spring Break area on the forums, which can be found here. Only 7's may post sign-ups for the division, which can be edited until the evening of the event. Each division is allowed just one (1) team per event. For FFA's, there may be just two (2) 7's per division. There will be a Poll posted as part of the event. It will open at 8 p.m. EST on Friday and close at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday. Votes will count toward participation for divisions and members will be asked to post a reply to become eligible for the Spring Break 2019 award! Prizes will be $10 codes, given out to the winners of each individual event. Total prizes for the competition will value ~$200. The Twitch Sub Drawing will happen on Sunday evening. Anybody who subscribes to KSILive before 6 p.m. that night will be entered into the drawing for the merchandise/Loot Crate prize. We may do more than one drawing, depending on Subscriptions. (Reminder: All Subscription revenue is used exclusively for prize pools for events, and the more Subs we get, the more prizes (and the bigger the prizes) we can offer.)   DIVISONAL CUP: Spring Break signifies the start of this year's Divisional Cup! Just the same as last year, divisional cup will keep track of each division's participation throughout the year. Starting at Spring Break and ending with January's Award Show, we will be ranking divisions each month by their participation, growth, and officer staff ratio to develop a competition for Division of the Year! The division with the most points each month will be named Division of the Month. A list of monthly events will be posted with meeting notes and in the Marketing Area on the forums so everyone can be aware of what will count toward points! Divisions can expect to see points counted for Weekend Warfare, Montage and Clip submissions, News Team contests, Twitch Subscriptions, OTM/DOTM award periods in the AAP, and more! Additional events will be added depending on what is happening in KSI for that particular month. KSI's large events -- Spring Break, Spirit Week, Fall Classic, and Turkey Bowl -- will count independently and figure into the overall scores, but not the monthly tallies.   SOCIAL MEDIA: Follow along on our Social Media platforms to stay informed, engaged, and to connect with KSI!

  2. KSI Akame 7 Gold Outstanding Service Nomination

    Since I've become the Director LS Akame has made great strides at bettering himself as a leader. Akame has been kicked down but no matter what he always stands back up and works harder to be better for LS and KSI. You can find Akame jumping from party to party chatting and getting to know the the members and such. He introduces himself as the Div Leader to the new RCTs and hangs out with them. Akame is willing to help anyone wanting to learn and become leaders within his Div or KSI. One thing he does for LS is always being around for his members. Although Akame and his Founder are the only 7's LS have they are such a hard working team. He has grown so much as a leader since the last time I was his Director. He's a lot more confident and has learned to be the leader the Div needs. He and his Div has been working on their communication and working through issues as a team. Akame has made great strides to get LS on a good strong stride, but he will be the first to tell you that it was and is a team effort. LS has done a lot to get back on their feet and start rebuilding that div. Akame had to make a lot of hard choices and such to get the officers and members active and moving forward. But if you ask Akame he had nothing to do with it he gives the credit to all the officers and members below him. I am glad to be along for the ride to watch LS grow and be a strong division. I look forward to watching to see what Akame can do for LS and also for KSI!!
  3. KSIxROMEO 7- Outstanding Service lvl 1

    What can I say about Ol" Romeo........?? Romeo is a great leader and a hard working young man. He is always helping and mentoring his Div and squads. He is very knowledgeable and is still willing to learn and grow his knowledge. If you reach out to Romeo for help or even ask for a min of his time he will give you hours if that is what it takes. Not only does he help you in KSI hes willing to sit with you and let you cry scream and cuss if that's what you need from him. He's looked up to by a lot of the Divs members. One of the many things I like about this great Leader is that he is everywhere, from game nights to P.O. workshops to just listening to a Dir talk about the Div and what its doing. Romeo has been a strong leader in DM and although he can come across harsh sometimes he isn't to proud to go back and apologize and explain himself better. Another thing I admire about this great leader is that hes not afraid to pitch an idea to his Div Leader or his Dir and takes and all comments we have. He is one of the best leaders I've seen in KSI in a long time. I for one think he has earned this award and I look forward to watching this leader continue grow and the great things he will do for not only DM but for KSI as well.
  4. Division Meeting Notes for 2/20/19

    KSI Divisional Meeting Notes Feb. 20, 2019 *Clan OPS* Progressive Mindsets Over the course of this new year (2019), it is our goal to push KSI in an upward, forward moving direction in terms of growth, community strength, and longevity. In order to do so, it's important that not just leadership, but all members of this community adapt to a progressive mindset where we think ahead, plan for better, and push beyond limits. The next time you sit down whether alone or with fellow KSI members, think of ways the community can change for the better, what you can do to contribute to growth, and how to make KSI a better place than when you joined it. Professionalism It is important to remember that KSI is a 'Positive gaming community' which means we must conduct ourselves in the appropriate manner. When in party's we must be mindful of who is there and what is and what isn't okay to discuss. We must remain professional when in party's with members of KSI and non members of KSI to ensure KSI's positive reputation is maintained. Divisional Goals Divisional leadership, your goals for the month are still be monitored and checked on in terms of steps taken and movement towards goal. When the new month timeline roles around, new goals are to be posted and updated on every week. Please stay on top of this for the benefit of your division and maintaining accountability. Divisional Hall of Fame During the upcoming Spring Break events finale, Divisional Hall of Fame inductees will be announced.

While on an LOA you must not be active within any clan ops based situations such as Promotions/Demotions, squad meetings and discord chats. You must be away from it all until your LOA comes to an end Real Life Please remind your GENs and Officers that people have “REAL LIVES”!! People have school and such but in the evenings and weekends when some of your squads are having meetings or workshops people are working. You can not hold that against your members or officers unless you agree to pay their bills. *Department Notes* HSI There will not be any extra time given to divisions to post their top recruiters if they don't do it by the time it closes then they will not be featured in the Article and Stats thread.

  6. Division Meeting Notes for 2/6/19

    KSI Divisional Meeting Notes Feb. 6, 2019 Clan Ops: Divisional Transfers: When applying for a divisional transfer, it is crucial to fill out the proper format when titling and filling out the necessary document on the forums. If your transfer is not properly labeled, your transfer will be delayed as the divisional leaders will not know you are requesting their division and the necessary approval parties won’t be notified. Personal Life (Officers and up): Every member of KSI must try and balance everyday life and KSI life. As leaders and members of this community we must ensure we don’t allow our personal life spill out into KSI life. Sometimes in life things come up and it takes a toll on your mind and body. You must know when to take a step back if you feel it is impacting your duties as an officer then speak with the appropriate leadership and take some time. The Rank Structure: It is imperative that we continue to maintain CoC #5. The rank structure is in place to allow members to report issues and problems to the next appropriate rank. For example: A squad based issue could be handled within the squad, this doesn't need to go straight to the Div Leader. The same goes for the Directors, members shouldn't be going straight to Directors with issues, (Unless they are the Div Leader). We must remember that although we have an 'Open Door Policy' we have a rank structure for a reason. Divisional Issues: If an issue arises in another Division and you feel it needs to be handled, you must report it to your General or appropriate 7 staff. You must not handle it yourself. Please ensure we are doing things the correct way and following the correct procedures. Venting: As a member of KSI sometimes situations can get stressful and in some cases irritating. It's important that as members of the community we are venting "Upwards" and not "Downwards". With so many people and so many differences of opinions it is understandable that at times we may butt heads. Please remain professional and if you feel you need to vent a situation out to someone, then you are doing to someone who is not directly involved and not below you in rank. If people are bad mouthing other members and less experienced members hear this, it can leave a 'bad taste'. Please be smart when venting. Department Notes: AAP: We would like to welcome the newest members of the AAP staff! So shout out and congratulations to KSI Jynxie, KSI Nagisa, and KSI Taywick 77 on being the latest members to join our wonderful team! With that said, applications have been closed so be on the lookout for the next opportunity. The next Divisional Hall of Fame nomination period is right around the corner and will be during Spring Break! Please keep in mind that only people with at least Outstanding Service Level 1 are eligible for nomination and induction into the Divisional Hall of Fame so be sure to get your nominations in as soon as possible. They take time to get awarded so should be done well in advance of the DHOF nominations. Don't procrastinate in recognizing your peers that do outstanding work. If you have any suggestions for new awards you would like to see added to the AAP program then head on over to the AAP section and post your ideas in the suggestion topic. We look through there and take those suggestions seriously so your suggestion could be the next new award added! If you have any questions please contact KSI RiiOT 7 or KSI Kalakoi 77. ||Good Gaming|| HSI: Reminder to all divisions to communicate with your HSI Staff representative on what you should be doing at the end of each month and you can check the forums link to see who it is assigned to your division any questions contact KSI Greenday 7. http://www.ksiforums.org/topic/40534-hsi-reps-liaisons/ We want to hear more of how you came up in KSI!

  7. KSI xMr Gumpx 7 DL Hall of Fame

    KSI Mr Gump 7 wow where do you start. When i met Gump i was the new Div Leader for ES and KSIfiremomma7 invited me to a party to meet him. He was so excited to have reached the rank of a 7. This guy was so excited to be given the chance to help grow and make DL better. With so many ups and downs with his health he never let anything get in the way. He was always willing to chat game and and just hang out. If he ever had a question or need some advise he was not afraid to reach out for help. I always heard great things about Grump and how amazing he was to his members and DL. If there was ever anyone in KSI that deserved to be in ANY Hall of Fame i would have to give my vote to Gump. By far one of the best members and leaders KSI has had. He is loved and missed by so many.
  8. Division Meeting Notes for 1-23-19

    KSI Divisional Meeting Notes Jan. 24, 2019 Burn out As leaders we sometimes overextend ourselves to the point of exhaustion. If you’re at this point, or if you get to it, please let one of your leaders know no matter what your rank is. It’s sometimes difficult to imagine getting out of a slump once you’re in it but you can and will. You can also contact HR if you feel the need to. Divisional Cup 2019: REMINDER TO ALL DIVISIONS - The divisional cup every year begins with our Spring Break event and lasts until the end of December. This means that Div cup points will not be alloted until then. We encourage all members to still participate in WW, SYTYCW, and all of the other point based facets the community has to offer anyways! Harassment Policy & Procedure: KSI has a Zero tolerance policy when it comes to any form of harassment by or towards any member of the community regardless of rank. If you or someone you know feels harassed (with merit) in anyway by anyone, please notify the proper chain of command immediately. If in a harassment type of scenario personally, please make sure to clearly and firmly establish that you want no part of the behavior and report the issue to necessary CoC immediately. We strive to keep all members safe and comfortable but we can only do so if procedure is followed and the incidents are exposed. The Rank Structure: It is imperative that we continue to maintain CoC #5. The rank structure is in place to allow members to report issues and problems to the next appropriate rank. For example: A squad based issue could be handled within the squad, this doesn't need to go straight to the Div Leader. The same goes for the Directors, members shouldn't be going straight to Directors with issues, (Unless they are the Div Leader). We must remember that although we have an 'Open Door Policy' we have a rank structure for a reason. Divisional Issues: If an issue arises in another Division and you feel it needs to be handled, you must report it to your General or appropriate 7 staff. You must not handle it yourself. Please ensure we are doing things the correct way and following the correct procedures. Communication: One of the keys to being a strong leader is communication not only to the leaders above you, but the members and officers below you. Having the lines of healthy communication open helps everyone. Keeping your leaders informed helps them track issues and know whats going on while being transparent with the members grants better understanding of goals and priorities. Communication is the biggest tool we have in teaching and learning how to handle issues Head-Hunters 2019: As stated before, Head-Hunters is a community wide event spanning about 2 months where divisions send out their most talented and competitive players to represent and go head to head with the other 7 divisions in the league. This seasons featured game will be Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII. With this being said, it is up to the community to decide on what they'd like to spectate, as well as what they'd like to play in for the season.

  9. Division Meeting Notes: 1/9/19

    Division Meeting Notes: 1/9/19 Clan Operations Notes 2018 Award Show & “Of The Years” (OTY's) We will be closing out the year with our highly anticipated KSI Awards Show.

We encourage all members to tune in to the show on Sunday, January 13th at 7:00pm EST. Join us on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/ksilive. Gather some friends and start a "watch party"! ✦ Squad Tag & Omega (GEN's and up) All Generals - please ensure that you are regularly checking your Squad Tags and Omegas. It has come to our attention that there are squads and divisions housing potential fluff. Fluff can break a squad and be detrimental to a division. It is important that we are doing our jobs properly and efficiently. ✦ Mentality (Officers and up) It’s also important that we are leaders are always maintaining a positive and professional attitude. Everything filters from the top down and if we aren’t holding ourselves to the standards we set, how can we expect our members to do so? ✦ Division Leader Meeting Format Revision Removal - Recitation of stats and coverage of Web Ops notes. Goal is to better utilize time for Clan Ops specific inquiries and notes, as well as open more time for discussion. Incorporation - Utilization of 7’s meeting notes on a weekly basis to help hold all parties accountable, as well as creating productive and beneficial conversation for divisional improvement. Promote Open Sharing Environment - Discussion about what works and what doesn’t work. If there are struggles and issues, utilize net of resources (Senior Director Teams Director Team, Other Division Leaders, etc) to get advice and help. If something works, SHARE IT. If one division can benefit, they all might be able to. ✦ Security With the new year in full swing, security is always at the top of our list. Make sure we are checking all new recruits and rejoins thoroughly. Make sure we are actively sweeping the squad tags and Recruit Clubs. Fluff your Recruit Clubs often to minimize unnecessary tags. At this time, there is no new threat to KSI but we never know when one might emerge. If you we do these things now and make them a habit, hopefully new officers will learn to do the same. Department Operations Notes AAP The AAP is hiring! Applications to join the AAP Department will be open from Wednesday 1/9/19 through Friday 1/18/19.

  10. Of The Years 2018! - Nominations (Closing 12/16)

    Category: Sr. Director Gamertag: KSI Gambit 7 Forums Account Link: @KSI Gambit 7 Reasons they deserve this award - Although Gambit and I have bumped heads and such he has always had the best interest of KSI and me as leader in mind. When I first met Gambit I was Div Lead for ES and from the start he was a new look for me at the Director rank. He stepped into my Div it was a new ball game. I was never a fan of Directors because I thought they could do there jobs better. Well here came Gambit a totally different kind of leader and Director. I gave him such a hard time and aggravated him from the start. I made it VERY clear (I thought) that I WAS NOT ready to be a Director. Well as ES grew and Gambit was there for my every need I was promoted to Director. Not even a second after the announcement my discord went crazy Gambit saying I told them you did not want to be Director yet. I gave him grief for weeks, but I was excited and proud to join the amazing Director Team. He's listened to me yell and scream then offer guidance and support to me and the people I'm over. He's never not been there for me and that is the kind of leaders needs in KSI. Category: Div Leader Gamertag: KSIfiremomma7 Forums Account Link: @KSIfiremomma7 Reasons they deserve this award - When I first met Firemomma she was tough and hurt by all the wrong she had been dealt. Then I became Director and was given DL after a few months. When I was given my second shot with DL I pulled Firemomma and her Co-Div into a party and put every issue problem and ugly truth out on the table. I told them WE either fix it or I will recommend the Div be merged. She yelled and screamed and probably cried at this darkness. But that next day I watched as this Div Leader pulled her GENs into a party and gave them the hard truth. With the up most grace she told these GENs what had to be done and the changes that were to come. I witnessed this leader make changes in how she lead this Div. She is one of the most beloved Div Leaders I know. This Div will fight for Firemomma at a moments notice. She maybe tough on the outside but she cares deeply for DL and its members and KSI. I for one am very proud of the strides she has made in becoming a better leader for her Div. Category: Co-Founder Gamertag: KSIxRomeo 7 Forums Account Link: @KSIxROMEO 7 Reasons they deserve this award - This kid was a great addition to the 7 staff for DM. Hes been an acting GEN but still filled his duties as Co-Fo. The members of DM always look to him for help and guidance. Romeo participates is as many game nights as he can with DM, and if you DM there are at least 3 game nights going a night across the Div. He works really hard to be there for DM. Hes not afraid to speak his concerns or thoughts with his Div Leader or his Director. He will do great things for DM and KSI in the future and i look forward to seeing what he can do.
  11. Turkey Bowl 2018 Poll

    LET’S GET IT DONE KSI!!!!!!!!!!
  12. KSI DropShot 7 OS Level 1

    When I became DL's Director DropShot was a Roostery but respectful GEN. As their new Director I took a few days to get to know some of the GENs and officers of this Division. Meeting DropShot was a surprise all in its own. Here is this KID in collage running a squad in a Xbox gaming community and is so full of knowledge I was instantly a fan. DropShot had such a strong squad and officers that worked hard and wanted to learn. He never beat around the bush so to speak with his squad he was always up front and to the point with them. As I sat and listen to KSIfiremomma7 give her Division the hard reality check about the fate of DL this KID without missing a beat said 'ok Momma what do you need us to do". From that point on I watched this KID put his squad to work to not only move is squad forward but help one of the other squads that was struggling. As DL began to move forward and start to turn things around and look to a new future I knew this KID was set for greatness. Adding him to the 7's team was a no brainier and probably one of the best decisions DL made. DropShot has had a long history in KSI and never reached a 7 seat till now, and let me tell you this KID should of been here a long time ago. Hes added to this 7 staff the last piece of balance it needed. He is not afraid to challenge KSIfiremomma7 or KSI Prophecy v7 if he feels there is a better way to do something. He's always willing to share his knowledge with members and let them bounce ideas off of him for their squads. He can be found gaming with all ranks in his division or just simply hanging out in a party with members to chit chat and goof off. Not that I need to but this KID is a KSI Judge and is on the Marketing Team and T & E Team as well. I can not tell you how amazing this KID is it was a privileged to work with him and get to know him. I am excited for DL's future and to see the amazing things this KID can do for not only DL but KSI as well.
  13. KSI PROPHECY v7 Helping Hand, Good Samaritan, Philanthropist

    When i was Dir for DL i witnessed KSI Prophecy v7 doing so many great things for the Div. From a simple name change to buying a kid the DLC’s for Destiny 2 so they could continue to play with the squad. He’s given out too many Name Changes to count to give a member an opportunity to become a great leader for his Div or KSI. KSI Prophecy v7 purchased Crash Bandicoot for me
  14. Multi Self nominations

    As former Div Leader for ES i will confirm that KSI Eyonia 7 has had her GT for way way over a year.
  15. KSI Division Leaders Meeting Notes 11/07/18 ~~Clan OPS~~ Turkey Bowl * Signups will be posted on the first of November. Please get with your members and push the events and get teams set up. Event sign ups will close 48 hours prior to the event starting so that T&E can properly staff it’s events. (7s) New 7s notes format * A new 7s meeting note format has been posted in all of your division sections. Please take a look at the new format, any questions can be directed to KSI Gambit 7 at the Division meeting this Thursday or you can message any Senior with questions. Update: This format is to be completely filled out and posted on a weekly basis. The healthiest way to do so is to rotate the responsibility between ALL MEMBERS of the current 7 staff. This is something that will be continuously discussed and reviewed. Discord Role System topic * There will be a topic posted in the Leaders Discussion area that will outline the roles, their permissions and the responsibilities of each role. The goal is to get every division’s leadership to work in unison with senior leadership to get every server on this system, we’ve taken months to listen to feedback and make this system as user-friendly and efficient as possible. Any feedback is appreciated, and welcomed! Directors * For those who’s divisions have changed you will be allotted a week to co-tackle the division so the new director can learn with an informative guide and the departing director can clean up any last ties and wishes with the division in question. Head-Hunters Poll * Head Hunters is a community wide event designed with the intention of sparking friendly competition amongst the divisions, while giving our more competitive players a venue to show off their skills and represent their divisions. This being said, it is the people of this communities right to have a say in what game / game types they would like to play in or watch throughout the season. Friday (11/9/18) A poll will go live on the forums in which members will be able to vote on which title the first 2019 Head Hunters season will take place on, as well as the ability to express desired game types. The poll will be live for 2 weeks so please encourage all members to vote! Making Decisions * When you are making decisions for your division, there should be a multitude of factors to take in consideration. Make sure that you consult your 7 staff or officer staff depending on your role to get their opinions and views. They are experts on your division/squad as much as you are. Once you come to a decision and plan to roll out the change, make sure to thoroughly explain why you came to that decision. If you can’t defend your decision then maybe it’s not a good decision, it’s your roll to make sure that all decisions made are to better the division backed by solid reasoning. Those explanations will make the process smooth as well as shows your members that you care about them by giving them the time and reasoning. Member Retention * This week, try and find someone in your squad or division to game with that you wouldn't usually! One problem with fast growing squads is that they forget one fundamental thing, recruiting the members is only half the battle, keeping those members engaged and active is just as important as recruiting!
