      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. Special Donor-only giveaways during the yearly KSI events A special Donors-Only Weekend Event full of FFAs and Giveaways in August. 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

    I'm very disheartened that New Orleans didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year. Looking forward to the 2019 season!

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

    Category: Division Leader Gamertag: KSI Gruntier 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI Gruntier 7 Reasons they deserve this award – “Grunt” or “Eli” as I know him deserves this award because he runs one, if not the best Division in KSI. Grunt, like those below him in Demonic Mayhem’s (DM) Seven staff, is a gamer at his core. I see him online nearly every night, and if he’s not in a staff meeting, he’s out there gaming with members of his division. He actively engages members and officers alike, and his presence is greatly appreciated. Grunt makes himself visible and available to members and officers alike. Grunt is one of only a handful of people that I know in KSI (some are on this very list of nominees) who truly embraces what it means to maintain oneself in a professional manner during KSI-related parties, chats, etc. I have never heard Grunt speak a single expletive, and no matter how heated the situation may seem, Grunt’s demeanor doesn’t change; he’s always cool, calm, and collected. Finally, Grunt is a man of action; he is proactive not reactive. If there is something wrong, I’ve seen him take swift action in order to remedy potentially disastrous situations from developing. From my observation and experience, Grunt’s leadership style shows no bias, no favoritism, and doesn’t allow any “politics” to affect his decision making when it comes to Demonic Mayhem. Thanks, Grunt for all your hard work and dedication to KSI and to Demonic Mayhem. Category: Founder Gamertag: KSI FluffyPup 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI FluffyPup 7 Reasons they deserve this award – “Fluff” or “Kyle” as I know him deserves this award because he’s left a permanent positive imprint on Demonic Mayhem and possibly KSI as a whole. Kyle is vested in KSI and it shows! Not only is Kyle a hardcore gamer (he games with everyone, and frequently streams on Mixer for us to enjoy), he is our resident IT guy, maintains Demonic Mayhem Radio on YouTube, maintains a widely-used KSI information server for DM’s officers/potential officers, and like KSI Gruntier 7, he ensures he is available to both members and officers alike (and he has a lot on his plate, currently as a founder, but for many months this year he wore the acting Co-Founder hat as well). I know that I can bounce an idea, etc. off Kyle using Xbox Live or Discord, and he’ll get back to me with an honest answer. Last, this year Kyle was a charter inductee into Demonic Mayhem’s Hall of Fame (along with receiving an Outstanding Service Award). In my humble opinion, this in and of itself is enough for Kyle to receive this Of the Year award. Thanks, Kyle for all your hard work and dedication this year. You are a stand-out amongst stand-outs, and I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me personally and for Demonic Mayhem. Category: General Gamertag: KSI MeShell 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI MeShell 7 Reasons they deserve this award – “Shell” or “Michelle” as I know her deserves this award because through her positivity and engagement of members/officers across the division, she is an absolute asset to our Division (no matter what rank she holds). Her positive attitude and likeability are not limited to Clan-Ops but spread into her Department-Ops activities as well. Specifically, I appreciate and enjoy her KSILive streams on Twitch. As a General, I’ve seen her on Xbox nearly every single day engaging not only the members of her own squad, but constantly (and positively) engaging other members in parties, DM’s Discord server, and on the forums. It’s my observation that Shell’s engaging members and other officers alike in a positive manner has had nothing but a positive impact on the entire division. Shell isn’t afraid to get out there and play any game and just do what we’re all supposed to be doing. Having fun! I believe Shell truly understands what it means to belong to a gaming community. Finally, Shell isn’t afraid to speak up when something is wrong, nor does she hesitate to ask questions if she doesn’t know the answer. I’ve seen her quietly redirect public conversations in DM’s Discord server to parties or direct messages. Shell is another example of someone I’ve observed to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to dealing with any manner of KSI-related issues. If one is aspiring to become a solid officer in KSI, Shell is a shining example. Shell, thank you for setting a high bar for members and officers alike. Category: Captain Gamertag: KSI EzeD24 Forums Account Link / @EzeD24 Reasons they deserve this award – Recently promoted to a Captain position, and in spite of a hectic IRL schedule, “Eze” as I know him deserves this award for the sheer perseverance and resilience, he’s shown this year. I would describe Eze as a selfless officer who puts the needs of the squad and its members above his own. Like those I’ve nominated above Eze is another gamer to the core, and being an officer alongside me in Discord Squad, I know I can count on him. On at least two occasions, I’ve witnessed Eze pick up multiple weekly game nights knowing that his IRL schedule is brutal. Eze knew Discord Squad needed his help, and he’s been there through thick and thin. Eze is an effective communicator and is absolutely not afraid to speak up if he believes something is amiss. Like KSI Gruntier 7 above, I view Eze as one of those who speak softly and carry a big stick (this is a good thing). To me, it’s not about how much you can achieve in one year’s time, but how much effort you put forth regardless of the outcome. With Eze, I’ve seen effort at the highest possible level, and I’m truly appreciative of his time and assistance. Thanks, Eze for all of your hard work, patience, and endurance this past year. I’m truly looking forward to 2019 and working closely with you in building a solid new squad! Category: Staff Sergeant Gamertag: KSI McRubbinit Forums Account Link / @KSI WHISKEY Reasons they deserve this award – (Using my best Tony Soprano impression) “This guy!” “Whiskey” or “Drew” a I know him deserves this award because although he departed KSI for a short while, he came back because he realized that there was room for improvement in Demonic Mayhem and more specifically, Discord Squad. He returned to contribute his time and leadership skills, with a steadfast determination to make things better and stronger. He didn’t return to put a spotlight on himself, but rather to shine a bright light on both divisional and squad-based problem solving. I sincerely appreciate Whiskey’s ability to speak and engage large groups of people, all the while knowing his audience. He is absolutely not afraid to speak up if he believes there is an issue, and his no-nonsense approach to day-to-day problem solving is absolutely refreshing. Finally, I really appreciate Whiskey's sense of humor. Whiskey is not afraid to add some levity to difficult situations, and it's my opinion that Whiskey's leadership style of no-nonsense with some humor added in will take him as far as he wishes to go in this organization. Whiskey, welcome back to KSI and Demonic Mayhem. I’m truly glad your back and putting your leadership skills at the forefront of your return. Thanks for all your hard work thus far, and I’m absolutely looking forward to working with you in 2019 as we build a new squad! Cheers! Category: Member Gamertag: KSI JesterM347 Forums Account Link / @Jester347 Reasons they deserve this award – “Jester” as I know him deserves this award for his high activity level, participation, and good attitude in general as it relates to all KSI activities. Barring any IRL circumstances, Jester is always at squad meetings, game nights, and any other activities offered at the squad level. Jester proudly wears the KSI prefix, and by and through his actions, it shows. Jester is communicative, has a good sense of humor, and is an excellent all-around gamer. He actively engages other members of DM’s Discord squad and has a unique and not-easily-forgettable laugh befitting of his gamertag. Like those nominated above and below, I know that Jester understands what it means to be part of a gaming community. Thanks, Jester for being an asset to KSI, Demonic Mayhem, and Discord Squad. Category: Department Head Gamertag: KSI RiiOT 7 Forums Account Link / @KSI RiiOT 7 Reasons they deserve this award – “RiiOT” or “Super Sergeant Ultra First Class RiiOT” as I know him deserves this award because his department is brutally efficient. Plain and simple. RiiOT has shown through his leadership of the AAP Department that things get done and done properly. From the team he leads in AAP, to the new Meta Awards, to everyday interaction with RiiOT, the man gets things done! From my observation and personal experience, RiiOT’s AAP Department process awards properly and without delay (many times same-day turnaround for award nominations, which is phenomenal). In the rare case an issue arises concerning anything AAP, RiiOT is there to make things right. I had the pleasure of witnessing for RiiOT’s Gold Outstanding Service Award this year (an award that speaks for itself and one that I respectfully request be taken into consideration with this nomination), and it was then I learned that RiiOT had earned something I didn’t realize was possible in KSI: Seven status in all three areas of KSI: Clan-Ops, Department-Ops, and Web-Ops. To me and to this day, RiiOT continues to set the gold standard for what KSI is/should be. RiiOT remains a pillar of KSI by and through his actions while wearing many hats. Thanks, RiiOT for ALL you do for KSI, especially here, as it applies to the Awards and Achievements Department you run with great care. Cheers!

  12. KSI RiiOT 7 - Outstanding Service Level 3

    It is my pleasure to attest to this Outstanding Service Level 3 (Gold) Award for @KSI RiiOT 7 Although I'm not currently connected to Web-Ops and/or Department-Ops in any way, I see (and benefit from) the vast amount of time, effort, and dedication KSI RiiOT 7 (RiiOT) puts forth simply by my use of these forums. Please note that my attestation will differ significantly from those above based on my personal experience and observations. I first met RiiOT in January of this year through a post I made in the Open-Door Area (Suggestions) here on the forums. As a person who, at the time, did not use the forums often, I was extremely frustrated with minimum post requirements pertaining to Graphics Department requests and other departments with similar requirements. RiiOT read my post and his response - above all others - stood out to me, as he was courteous, professional, and seemed to really understand what exactly I was trying to convey/where I stood. To this day, I truly appreciate his well-written response and his genuine empathetic tone (at a time when other leaders responding to my post issued downvotes; some giving caustic, incendiary responses). As time passed, I've interacted more and more with RiiOT, whether here on the forums or on Demonic Mayhem's Discord Server. These interactions have only served to solidify the fact that RiiOT remains the very same humble, courteous, professional, and extremely hard-working person I first met. From that first meeting right here on the forums, RiiOT remains a driving and ever-present force on KSIforums.org. I've witnessed RiiOT's promotion to Head of the Awards and Achievements as well as his promotion to User Support Administrator. Through all of this, RiiOT, by my observation remains kind, humble, and gracious. It is my opinion that RiiOT has not forgotten where he started in KSI, and his humility and ability to empathize with members of all ranks and positions - whether in Clan-Ops, Web-Ops, and/or Department-Ops - above all the copious awards and recognition he's received, speaks volumes for his character and is but only fragment of why he deserves the Gold Outstand Service Award. From a Clan-Ops perspective, RiiOT is an interactive "Super Sergeant Ultra First Class" (showing his sense of humor by his title) in Demonic Mayhem's Discord Squad. He's frequently on the Discord app. with words of encouragement, important announcements, and friendly banter with members of Discord Squad or the general population of Demonic Mayhem. At one point during a Clan-Ops workshop, I was asked by the workshop's host, "Where do you see yourself in KSI one year from now?" Not realizing the breadth and depth of RiiOT's time, experience, accomplishments, and sheer dedication to KSI, I quickly answered, "I'd like to be where RiiOT is." The more I've learned about RiiOT and what he's accomplished and continues to accomplish in KSI, I now realize that this will take far, far longer than one year's time! RiiOT inspires me to work harder to accomplish my goals here in KSI, and I'm certain he does the same for so many other members across KSI, no matter the rank or position held. RiiOT is a true pillar of this community, and I sincerely appreciate his time, hard-work, and unwavering dedication. I'll end my attestation with words that I'm certain RiiOT is familiar with. By and through his service and actions in his years with KSI, and as outlined by those leaders/witnesses posting above, RiiOT is objectively one of the best leaders in this community, and by my observation I believe he sets the bar for the very award he's been nominated for by, "...show[ing] success in going above all expectations and provided the best legacy for those that follow them. [RiiOT is] undoubtedly [one] of the best leaders KSI has seen or produced." ~ Gold Outstanding Service Award Requirements
