  1. Gamertag: KSI Barb130 Clan Ops Rank: Gen in Succubus ES What would you define as "activity"? - Activity is participating in any squad activities, like game nights, workshops, and squad meetings. It can also be just hanging out with members of the squad. Do the expectations of activity vary by rank? How so? Absolutely! Officers and SGTS have gone as far as changing their gamertag, so I would expect more from them. Do we hold everyone to the same standards? I think we should have consistent standards that we hold everyone to, but these standards should take into account that people have different schedules and needs. For example, I have squad members from the UK and they find it difficult to attend all of our events because they happen very late for them. However, they are around playing with members during the day. So if our standards only recognize "official" activities these member might be considered inactive What should expected activity be for these various ranks Sergeant: Attending most game nights, co-hosting on a regular basis, encouraging others to join. Officers (SSGT, LT, CPT): hosting at least one game night and attending at least one other. Host ,co-host attend workshops and seek out "off-time" squad members, attend officer meetings General: Attend as many activities as duties allow and seek out less active members Divisional Leadership: Come to game nights occasionally Director: Come to game nights occasionally One of the things not talked about here is how to measure the activity, so you can be fair about it. In my squad, I started keeping a separate attendance for each event and in fact could be extended to just show dates. It is a table in google sheets that has squad members name at the beginning of the row and the event/dates at the top of the column. If anything is written in that cell it turns green. So It is very easy to spot the amount of activity. Each of my officers have access to the sheet and can update it In addition we implemented an in-squad currency that awards "chips" to squad members based on activity and they can be turned in for awards. The effectiveness of this is still to be determined, since it is still relatively new.
  2. Tournaments and Events Suggestion Box

    Hey thanks for posting the next few weeks of Weekend warfare. This is great that I can let my squad know with plenty of time to plan
  3. Tournaments and Events Suggestion Box

    This is not a game suggestion but a notification one. You used to announce weekend warfare in the weekly notes. The minecraft build-off was never mentioned in the notes so I never signed up my squad. Can you make sure those announcements get into the notes that gets passed down? It would also be helpful if we get them for the next 2 weeks.This way I would have more than just a few days to round up people to participate. Thanks!

    How would you identify potential officers and encourage people who don't seem to want to be officers to step up?
  6. HI, How are you doing, Barb?

  8. Butterflies & Raindrops

    As a 1CPT the time spent interacting with people is considerable, be it squad members, possible recruits, or higher ups. Making time fro people not in KSI is hard because so much of my time online is spent dealing with KSI stuff. So philosophically, friends are friends whether they are in KSI or not and I would not cut them off because they left KSI, but realistically the amount of time I would spent with people outside KSI is very small so even if I did't mean to cut them off, it might have the same effect.

  10. KSI GOT EM 7

    Got em referred me into succubus a year and a half ago. He's has always been supportive and encouraging me to change my gamer tag. I didn't know about his struggles until recently but you would never know it from his attitude. When I finally changed my gamer tag he made me feel so important during the promotion and excited. Got em exemplifies the "Open door policy" of leaders in KSI

Founder Link to forums account: @KSI Eyonia 7 Reason: Although she is a new founder, when she was co founder she always stepped in when out gen wasn't felling well or couldn't make it. General Link to forums account: @Squeek 7 Reason: Since Squeek took over our squad she always hit everyone up to play or just join a party to shoot the breeze. Since I became an officer she has been clear about what she needs me to do and always telling me what a good job I am doing and lets me know where I can improve (like not interrupting her lol). Lieutenant: Link to forums account @KSI Sumbich89 Reason: since coming back to KSI and becoming an officer with me sum has been a big help since he has done this before. I can always bring a " How does this work?" kind of question to him. He is a great recruiter and can't wait to see the fruits of the ideas he has for succubus. Member: Link to forums account: @GroundPainter26 Reason: GroundPainter was the only member of succubus to join the forums during spirit week. Hope to get hime more active here as time goes on.

  13. Category - Co founder Gamertag: KSI GOT EM 7 Ksi Got em 7 referred me to KSI and even though I am not in his squad he will shout out to me and makes me feel welcome.
