  1. KSI PROPHECY v7 Outstanding Service LVL 1

    There is a slew of reasons as to why this member deserves OS Lvl 1 award and many to come. Working with Prophecy as his Director and keeping up with him after my departure and seeing the accolades he, as well as his 7 staff have been able to accumulate in that time is truly outstanding. When I arrived in DL, things were bleak and that's being optimistic. There was an extreme lack of training activity, spirits were crushed, and momma and prophecy had been fighting tooth and nail for anything they got for a long time. In this time, Prophecy never once quit or folded with the extremely rough hand dealt. From personally retraining entire staffs, stepping in as general and leading squads, driving activity and joining departments, as well as heading the charge for PO in his division, DL has truly been improved by his presence. Prophecy has made many mistakes, but more importantly he owns up to them, and is always willing to grow and learn, using himself as an example for his members. He deserves this award. Sincerely, Gambino

If they cannot be active enough to receive their Sergeant promotion either than they are to be removed as well after 1 weeks time from the name change.

  4. KSI RiiOT 7 - Outstanding Service Level 3

    With the accolades previously listed that RiiOT has achieved, It is needless to say that I share the same philosophy in that RiiOT absolutely deserves to be awarded the OS Lvl 3 award for the amount of time, work, and dedication he has poured into this community for several years as well as many more to come. The feats hes been able to establish within the AAP speaks enough to the caliber of leader he is and his commitment to success and driving the community forward. Through talking to RiiOT and working under him as a baby mod, it is constantly made clear to me that he does his job to the utmost degree and then some. He is constantly patrolling the website, informing Mods on their duties, offering help, and putting inn his own work when hes not running his department. As Cat mentioned, looking at the new and revitalized AAP department and the fact that is no longer a chore or a task to go visit their section on the forums, but something that the members are actively pursuing and looking forward to posting in, is a night and day difference from the department just a couple months ago and is thanks to the work of RiiOT and the staff hes put together. I very much hope that RiiOT receives this award as he deserves it much much more than I do mine and it would be a small thank you in return for his years of service. Plus, hes the best to go 'Sploring with #SadBoyHours #StuffBoisPodCast

Name Change Policy: Please inform all potential recruits when recruited that they are not considered a full-member of KSI until they are trained to the rank of PVT. This being said, we ask all potential KSI members to wait on changing their Gamertag until they are trained to PVT to avoid wasting $10.00 in the event of their denial. Conflict of Interest (Dating): The conflict of interest policy is in place for the sole purpose of keeping drama out of the squads. Please report any relationship to your leadership in order to avoid conflict, favoritism, or false claims of sexual harassment. Double Point Weekend Warfare: Saturday, August 4th T&E will be hosting a CoD: WWII FFA that will count for double participation points per member that signs up for your division. This is an excellent opportunity to advanca your division towards the divisional cup so go sign up!
  6. KSI BadKitty 7

    My witness: Working with Cat for a year and half now, I can easily say that she is easily one of the most proactive and helpful leaders this community has to offer. Regardless of the situation type (web ops, clan ops, or personal advice) Cat has never once turned someone away who had questions, sought more knowledge, or needed help. She has proven time and time again how dedicated she is to the members of this community as both her divisions and department staff can attest to. She absolutely deserves this award on behalf of the countless members that are better of with her help and guidance. - El Gambino
  7. June 2018 OTM nominations!

    Senior Director - Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI Ronin 77 (Senior Director) Link to forums account: @The StreetSweepah Reasoning: Although Ronin and I have never been to close, observing him from both a Director stand point as well as that of his Senior Director career makes it impossible to not respect someone who puts in as much effort and time to being a senior leader as he does. Every meeting had, every question that comes up, Ronin is always the first person to take something and run with it. He is constantly brainstorming or developing systems that he believes will better the community and its members moving forward. When it comes to any all issues, he is extremely pro active with reaching out to members involved and helping out in any way he possibly can. Although Rita was the trailblazer to revitalize an active senior team, Ronin has done more than just pick up the torch and is equally active and hands on with the community. I look forward to working with him in the months to come and think he most definitely deserves this OTM for his efforts and accolades. Director - Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI Badkitty 7 (Director - DM/DL/WD) Link to forums account: @KSI BadKitty 7 Reasoning: Kitty's reputation really preceded her before she became part of the Director team but since that change and rank, has already proved numerous times that she has earned her spot and many more to come. Her value has been immediately recognized after only being a Director for 2 months, she was able to take on 3 divisions at the same time each of which you would think had her undivided attention with how often she communicated, strategized, and guided them. Every division she has been over has shown exponential growth in forums activity, event participation, and overall productiveness as she is always the first to recognize and listen to issues, but never over steps by allowing divisional 7 staffs to develop their leadership skills and handle said issues. Beyond just those Divs, it is not uncommon for multiple members outside her general realm to reach out for advice, guidance, and a laugh she induces with one of her many quirks. Cat has the unusual ability to make members feel comfortable while simultaneously exuding confidence and authority which is a trait often sought after. Im sure that she deserves Director of the month and cant wait to see what else is in store for her career. Division Leader - Gamertag (Rank - Division/Squad): KSI GOT EM 7 Link to forums account: @KSI GOT EM 7 Reasoning: Where to start with Mr. Got Em. Out of all od the Division Leaders I have had the fortune of working with, Got Em is by far one of the most committed and dedicated when it comes to the safety and happiness of his members. No matter what time of day it is, Got Em can always be found in a party with members of both his Div and others as he encourages and facilitates a friendly environment for all. Besides this, ES has had its share of set backs. Losing two 7s due to petty immaturity, several attacks from outside communities, and personal attacks on he himself and his family all in the span of a couple months, yet Got Em is still here and kicking which is a tribute to his strength and character. One thing Got Em always preaches is not accepting disrespect from or towards any members of his division or the community. ES is becoming what it once was, a stronghold, thanks to the efforts of Got Em and his 7 staff. I think he is absolutely deserving of this OTM and wish him the best of luck in KSI and life.

  12. Outstanding Service Award Level 3 VeRiiTaS 7

    Anyone who knows me knows that I have a long standing relationship with Rita that has had its ups and downs and has caused me some possible addictions and several cigarette marks on my arms. However, despite his age and the explicit rage he causes me, Rita is truly one of the finest leaders this community has to date and has absolutely played a part in producing and training prominent members of the community, some of which reside with him in the senior leadership realm. Of the many feats Rita has achieved in his time here, I think the one at the forefront of most members minds including myself, was/is the way he has completely reshaped what it means to be a Senior Director and the image & reputation associated with the position. Before he came along, I doubt people could have named who the Senior Directors were and even less could say that they have personally interacted with them. Rita singularly changed this in being the most active and engaged Senior I have seen in my 3 years of being in KSI in terms of the following aspects: Training, member involvement, and divisional strategics. In terms of training, I have seen and personally received his mentoring from the Ranks of Co-Division Leader and higher. When I was a Division Leader, I could not tell you the amount of times Rita came to check on me and offered advice and personal oversight when I needed, regardless of whether or not he was my director. As a senior, He has personally helped me through some of the most difficult and sensitive situations I've been a part of, while at the same time allowing me to grow and handle issues as a leader. Myself, as well as many others I know are thankful for his time, advice, and commitment to this community and its retrospective divisions. There is not a member more engaged with the members than Rita. I have never met someone who regardless of how many times you check their party throughout the day, are consistently with different groups of members, ranks recruit-board members, playing whatever makes them happy just to be there for them. He is the reason the Seniors are no longer viewed as un-approachable ghosts. List of other Achievements not already Recognized: Co-Head of T&E prior to KSI Badkitty 7 and myself Assisting in Discord uniformity projects HR and at risk member support Plus many more im sure I missed. Rita absolutely deserves this award and Im thankful for our friendship and what he does to better this community on a daily basis. - El Gambino

For the month of June, all Divisions attaining the 10:1 member to officer ratio will receive double divisional cup participation points in that area for the month! (Gens) Officer ratios have been slipping in recent stat charts, if you are a gen and notice your officer ratio is off try to combat that by getting with your cofo to strategize what officer potential you have in your squad. Kicked and Removed From Divisions: It is mandatory to post evidence when kicking and removing from divisions. Imgur is your friend. When writing the details of the situation as to why someone was kicked/removed, please be as organized and in depth as possible. This is for your benefit as well as the community Discord communication: Make sure that the KSI Discords are being used professionally. We can be social in these chats at times, but need to make sure that we are upholding the CoC in the process and keeping petty drama out. All issues between members or leaders are to be handled IN A PARTY on Xbox, not via DMs or especially in any chats accessible to members Squad Promotions and Demotions: While for the most part Generals decide who get promoted within their squads, there are certain processes that must be upheld in doing so. SSGT - LT promotions: Completely up to Generals, please inform Co-Founders to stay in the loop but do not require their approval CPT promotions: Generals need approval from Co-Founders BEFORE promoting the captain in question. All Demotions: All demotions within a squad must be approved by Co-Founder prior to demotion. Spirit Week: Spirit Week will be coming up here in just a few weeks at the end of June! The dates as well as the full list of games/game-types for both members and 7s events are listed under the Spirit Week section on the forums!
