KSI Spring 2018 Donation Drive 05/09/2018If KSI has made a difference in your life and you want to make a greater difference in the community, please donate here. Every donation that KSI receives is immediately put toward tournaments, events and site upgrades that improve the KSI experience for all members. “The members are KSI’s driving force, and this donation drive is an opportunity to play a larger role in creating the future of KSI,” Chief Operating Officer KSI ImPyyy 7 said. “We’re continuing our efforts to make our events and support structure bigger and better than ever, and every donation goes toward that goal.” The emphasis of this drive is improving the swag we will be giving away for Spirit Week, as well as making some necessary improvements to our server/sites. However, no donation drive has ever had the rewards and incentives this drive has. During the current donation drive, any member who donates $75 or more will receive their own customized group on the forums, complete with unique color and sprite image next to their display name. Anyone who gives *any* amount — through donations, bits, or subscriptions to KSILive — is eligible for a VIP-only event that will be hosted at Spirit Week. Should you feel usual donations are too much, but still want to contribute, you can subscribe to our Twitch channel, KSILive. All subscribers will still receive a Twitch Sub award, the “I ❤️ KSILive” group, and be entered into the VIP only event at Spirit Week. This will allow members to show off the perks of contributing more to the community. As always, despite the rewards for higher-level awards, there are still perks for those who aren’t able to reach that threshold. Any and all donations will be thanked and rewarded with the “I ❤ KSI” member group on the forums, ‘Spring Chicken’ donation award, as well as specific tiered forums awards based upon the amount donated. The awards will be: Platinum $1-$25
Oynx $75 Thank you, KSI Web Staff

A Co-Founder or higher in the division is responsible for posting the sign-ups. No other members should be posting the sign ups. The rosters can be changed up until the sign-ups close thirty minutes before the event begins. All members who compete must be registered on the forums and/or documented on G14/Omega before 21 May 2018. Any member recruited into KSI and entered into the CMS after 21 May will not be eligible to compete in the games on the consoles. They will be eligible for the Forums Poll, Minecraft build-off, Donor FFA, and Social Media events. --- **Donor Free-For-All** There will be a Donor-only Free-For-All event on Sunday, June 24 at 2 p.m. EST. To be eligible, you must donate at least $5 to the Donation Drive through our PayPal, a Twitch Subscription to KSILive, or Bit Donations in the stream between now and June 20, 2018 -- the start of Spirit Week. The Free-For-All will be a UNO tournament at https://play.unofreak.com/. Those who play UNO will be eligible to get one (1) participation point per division, and winners of the event will be eligible for individual prizes. --- **Prizes** Individual prizes must be redeemed by contacting KSI's CFO, KSI Ace 7.

The Forums Challenge Poll will open in the Spirit Week section of the forums on the first night. For a division to get a participation point for the Challenge, they must garner 20 votes in the poll. For the rest of the events, they must have one team show up and compete. If they field two teams, they will not gain a second participation point. 1st = +3 points
2nd = +2 points
3rd = +1 point
Participate = 1 point --- **Social Media** If you don't know, we have a Facebook and Twitter!

KSIxKodak Elysium DW SGT My Own Division Hi I’m KSI Kodak and this will be my entry regarding the thought of having my own division within KSI. I will be trying to go over the main questions written in the forums whilst trying to convey extra ideas and Plans that i have thought of in the short time that i have been blessed enough to be here. I do hope that anyone within KSI who so happens to read this will completely understand every detail and point of what I depict so that each member may be able to properly form an opinion or maybe even cast an idea of a division for themselves! Today in KSI, I believe that there is no greater group when it comes to being socially active and promoting positivity as well as the three symbolic properties from which the name is made. It is because of this that i have begun to realize that i would love to share this abundance of positivity and brother/sisterhood with more than just the platforms from which I am told we use. From PC to Xbox to Playstation 4 to even social Discord users, I believe that we as a gaming community not only can, but are ready to expand to reach farther depths and larger population scales! With the new division I would create i would hope to be the first in chasing that horizon by utilizing discord which is a common staple in communication KSI uses to unite gamers from all aspects of the gaming scope, leaving no community left without a gaming family to call home. It is because of the new branch out and exploration of new things that i would call this division ANDROMEDA after the storyline of the explorative group in Mass Effect: ANDROMEDA. There are too many reasons why this would be an amazing thing in my opinion. 1st this would broaden The horizons of a beautifully expanding system of gamers that never leaves another member behind. 2nd I believe due to the astounding Code of Conduct written for this group that we might be able to maybe even help those who are suffering be it socially or personally alike. The fact of the matter is that because of the code of conduct and because of the general social atmosphere created by the members added due to said code of conduct, it is not far off to say that each member around officer level and up tends to show true caring for other members and this is no small action! It is said that suicide can be stopped simply by saying one word to someone who needs it! And from what i’ve seen there is no person here who is above saying at least one word to somebody a day! I would even go as far as to say that we help people within the scope of gamers we reach every single day which is why i would hope to increase the number of people we help through the new ANDROMEDA division! Of course The Specifics of the Division matter too! It would be ideal to start by using staple games in each platforms realm like Call of Duty which would work for all of the three main platforms and of course Rainbow Six Siege and the Like. I would also be adding League of Legends, Paladins, Dota 2, And Elder Scrolls Online to the list simply because the Population infrastructure within these Games are Large enough to back up at least 3 more divisions by themselves, Especially including The fact that 3 of those are available on all three platforms and 2 of those 3 are free! This would mean that every member would be able to relate to some sort of game to play together which would also mean larger game nights and maybe even bigger contributions for bigger prizes! The squad names however i would dip my own personal tastes into by deeming them District name for my love of The Hunger Games series and also because there would be no limit to how many squads we could have with a District number There are many people within KSI who kinda helped me formulate this idea for a division! KSI Skychild would be the first guy i ask for help simply because he does a great job Organizing game nights and making sure that everything that isn’t mandatory gets done! I would venture to KSI Havoc 7 For 2 reasons The first being that he has experience being within a higher leadership role and the second being that within my first conversations with him he showed Experience with pc games which would help further putting together ANDROMEDA’s Structure! The most Important People in KSI i would utilize though would have to be every member who is completely active within Discord! Discord would be the Webbing that keeps all 3 platforms worth of members in communication with each other! And it would be the most important for Active discord members to show new members a warm welcome whilst being ready to help people who are new to discord and need help! Of course i would also look to higher leadership within KSI seeing as how ANDROMEDA’s Version of the Recruitment papers would need to be revised to match all platforms of gaming! Well that’s really it! I’m really happy that this was the topic i broke into “so you think you can write” for Because this has actually been on my mind! Maybe one day we can expand to be more than just an Xbox community and KSI can be a gaming community fit for every street and alleyway within the gaming universe! I really hope that i get o be there when This community Takes that Adventure and even more so do i hope that i get to be a big part of it! Thank You! KSIxKodak Elysium DW SGT
