      KSI Spring 2018 Donation Drive   05/09/2018

      If 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
      Diamond, $26-$74
      Oynx $75 Thank you, KSI Web Staff

Recruiting Workshop (Updated: 5/07/18)

1 post in this topic

Recruiting Workshop:

Workshop Introduction: Learning how to recruit is an excellent way to bring your friends into an experience that you enjoy, and that you wish to share with others. Recruiting also provides growth within your squad, which means more people to play with. Finally, as a sergeant or an officer it is a standard duty that you should be helping to recruit. Depending on your level of qualifications, which may differ from division to division, this can be done by hosting or co-hosting recruiting parties. While finding new members to join the community may seem daunting, the steps listed below can help to make the process much more simple, and less frightening.

Note: This workshop is not meant to be read word for word. As the trainer, you should read through it, take in the information, and find the best way to deliver it, just as will be stated throughout the information we are about to discuss.

Workshop Occurrence: This workshop will be offered on a rotating basis. Specific dates and occurrences will be listed on the monthly workshop calendar created by the Human Resources Department.


When a member completes this workshop, they should be eligible to recruit, regardless of rank.


Before we Begin (Pre-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics)

The following questions may be used as a conversation starter before beginning your workshop. As will be mentioned later, it's important to make sure you begin by getting everyone thinking about the topic at hand.

  1. What was your recruitment experience when being brought into KSI?

  2. What do you remember most about it?

  3. Did you have any questions that your recruiter wasn't able to answer at the time?

  4. Knowing the requirements to be eligible to be recruited into KSI, do you believe the standards are too high, or not high enough? (Gamer-score, amount of friends, etc..)


The Core of the Program (Workshop Topics, Progression, and Key Points)

Workshop Curriculum Introduction: The topics listed below represent the information most critical to Sergeants and Officers within KSI. Throughout the workshop you will cover a wide range of topics from the Code of Conduct, blacklisted communities, and required settings. While it is important you cover the topics below in detail, it's also important to read the room, and know your audience. Keep that in mind, and make sure that the way your present this workshop, and the way that you go about hosting it, still allow for a fun, collaborative, and open learning environment.

Important Workshop Technical Note: This workshop will be interactive, meaning that as you go through the information, participants should follow along on both www.KSIGlobal.org and www.KSIForums.org. You will go over the information as listed below, but also direct them to where they might find it themselves in the future. Because of this, before beginning the workshop please walk your participants through signing up for the forums if they have not already done so. To get credit for completing this curriculum, they must be on the forums throughout the process.


Recruiting made easy:

  • Enter a game alone or with a small team/group. Talk in the lobby and meet your fellow team members.

  • Play by the Code of Conduct and represent KSI in a positive manner.

  • During the match, communicate with the non-community gamers with a positive attitude, as well as your fellow community members to encourage interest in KSI. If you enjoy someone's personality and they seem interested, ask some questions, get to know one another and see if they would be a good fit for this community. Remember never recruit someone if you do not wish to be around them.

  • If they decide they would like to just hang around a bit, feel free to invite them to game nights and some more matchmaking. If they then become interested in joining, begin the standard recruitment process which can be found listed below.

  • Another excellent way to find people who you might enjoy gaming with is to create looking for group posts on Xbox Live. Remember though, in those posts you can tag clan recruiting, but more often than not people are just looking for a team. Keep this in mind and try not to be too pushy. Game with them for a while, get to know them, and develop a feel for what they want. If you think that they might be interested in joining the community, begin the standard recruitment process.


1. Recruiting Process on the Xbox One:

Security Check:

  • The Security Check is normally performed while you are in a party chatting with your possible RCT. As you are chatting about KSI look through the friends list and clubs.

  • Check friends list for multiple gamertags with same prefixes. Examples: KSI, MEA, DBD, TSB, J2H, XGN, XGC.

  • Check clubs for other clans/communities and blacklisted clans/communities. Blacklisted Communities: J2H, KSI.com, GRM, MEA

  • Minimum age of 15, no maximum.

  • Minimum Gamer-score of 500.

  • Minimum of 20 friends.

  • Mic Required

Note: Watch out for people with 20,000 or higher gamer-score as well as people with multiple people with similar name; recruits are allowed to have up to three different individuals in different clans/communities. Explain that a Blacklisted community pertains to all of KSI and a Security Risked individual or community is divisional or squad based.


2. Blacklisted Communities:

Blacklisted Communities are communities that KSI has no affiliation with.

  • J2H - Just 2 Hack

  • GRM - Galactic Republic Military

  • MEA - Murdering Evaluation Army

If any of these communities are found on a friends list during security check they must be removed before the recruitment process can begin. Never recruit or associate with anyone with these members on their friends list. If ever contacted by any of these groups screenshot the message and contact a 7 or the highest rank officer online at the time.

Security Threat Communities: If any these communities are found on a friends list during the security check they must be removed before the recruitment process can begin. Be very cautious of members associated with these clan/communities. You are not allowed to have these people on your friends list.


3. Explain what KSI stands for:

  • Knowledge: Knowledge is essential in every aspect of your membership in this community.

  • Strength: Strength is needed to persevere through tough times and to continue moving forward.

  • Integrity: Integrity is perhaps the most important trademark of a KSI leader. At the end of the day, it, and your actions are all that you have.

Be sure to repeat that KSI means Knowledge, Strength, and Integrity a few different times throughout your recruitment.


4. Read the Code of Conduct:

As you’re reading the Code of Conduct, stop periodically and explain what each rule means.


In order to maintain the high standards and ideals of KSI Global, all members must understand and abide by the following “Code of Conduct”

1. Every KSI member must read and understand the Xbox Live® Terms of Service and Code of Conduct.


Xbox Live had you agree to the terms of service in order to participate in Xbox Live, so it goes without saying that we expect you to follow the guidelines outlined in that document.


2. KSI does not tolerate discrimination in any form, including but not limited to racism, sexism, or harassment, by or towards, any member of KSI in any situation.


When you are participating in the forums, Xbox Live or any other activity that is part of the KSI community, you represent KSI, even in non-KSI related games if you have changed your gamertag, and you should represent KSI in a positive manner. You made the decision to be part of this community and you should, by example, encourage others to do the same. Do not make fun of anyone because of their race, gender, religion, region of the world, accent, etc. Treat everyone with respect.


3. Leaders within KSI are responsible for: the organization of all squad matches and practices; Maintaining professional game play during squad matches, as well as oversight and evaluation of performance and behavior of lower ranking members.


This does not apply to you yet, since you are a new recruit, but it should inspire you to gain higher ranks so that you can start to take part in the employment of these activities as a leader. Additionally, this also gives you a guideline of what to expect from your leaders so that you can, politely and with tact, help them make sure that they are setting the proper example and leading effectively. If you see something that seems off then you should work to get promoted so that you can have more influence in taking care of your other members.




If a member lags out of the game or party, then invite them back. It also applies to other situations though. If a member has a question, concern, or other issue that you can help them with, please do so. We like to think of KSI as being a family and the way that we promote that way of thinking is by taking care of each other.


5. All members have an “Open Door Policy” to speak with Leaders on any issues or with any ideas. But still impress the responsibility to report to the appropriate leaders within the KSI Chain of Command.


You, as a member of KSI, have the right to talk to your leadership about issues, both your own and ones within the squad/division. However, please make sure that you follow proper protocol and take the issue to your Lieutenant  or Captain first so that they are aware of the issue. No one likes to be blindsided with an issue and it is respectful to let your immediate level of leadership know and try to help before it must go higher. Additionally, you can post any issues on the forums, which are an invaluable resource and tool. You will be able to meet other members and build connections with hundreds of other players on Xbox Live. Once you register, make sure you check your email and validate your login so that you can start posting.


6. A KSI member takes pride in his or her membership and is encouraged but not forced to change their gamertag to reflect KSI.


You absolutely do not have to change your gamertag in order to be a happy and successful member of KSI. Many players are just casual gamers that want to have a large player base to associate with. However, if you want to get promoted to the rank of Sergeant or higher, then you will need to change your gamertag in order to reflect your affiliation to KSI. By changing your gamertag, you are advertising KSI in any game that you play on Xbox Live, even outside of the regular KSI games. When you change your gamertag, you are saying I am proud to be in KSI and I want everyone to know that KSI is awesome enough to add to my gamertag. As long as you continue to represent KSI positively, this will lead to people asking you about the KSI in your gamertag and that will give you the chance to talk about KSI and possibly get a new recruit.


7. KSI members must maintain a professional manner and attitude during play as well as within lobby, party and KSI based chats in order to represent KSI as a positive gaming community.


If you are in a lobby and someone starts cussing you out or talking trash, mute them. Show that you are the better person and just use the mighty mute button. Not only does that show the other person that they have no power over your emotions, but it also shows the other players in the lobby that members of KSI maintain a high standard of conduct, which will possibly lead to people wanting to join and then you will be able to recruit them. You also need to make sure to maintain proper conduct when using the forums.


8. KSI members are not permitted to be a part of any other gaming community or clan other than KSI.


Once you get logged onto the forums, you will be able to access the thread about our affiliates. Make sure that you associate only with our affiliates and if you have questions about other possible affiliates, feel free to use the Open Door Policy to ask your leadership questions about it, but definitely get on the forums and check it out too.


9. The lowest allowed age to be recruited into KSI is: 15.


While recruiting members into the community, ask their age prior to giving them the required age to join. This will ensure they are the proper age before recruitment.


10. The list of prohibited activities includes, but is not limited to: Illegal Drugs, Software Alteration, Modding of Games, Console Manipulation, Other Forms of Piracy, Racketeering, Money laundering, Blackmail, Murder, Child Pornography, Prostitution, Bestiality, Incest, Slavery, Fraud, Cannibalism, Theft, Vigilantism, Harassment, Stolen Valor and Acts of Treason.


If you are doing anything in your personal life that violates these rules keep them in your personal life. We are not trying to control your personal life however; we maintain a positive and uplifting environment in our forums and game sessions. So, please, don’t talk about eating people in our games.




Members who violate any portion of the KSI Code of Conduct may be subject to removal from this community at any time.

The Debrief (Post-Workshop Conversation Starters and Discussion Topics)

The Following questions can be used as a conversation starter following the conclusion of your workshop. You do not have to ask every question. Pick the ones that you believe will have the most impact, and most buy in with your workshop group.

  1. Is there anything you would change about the recruitment process?

  2. Was there anything that you didn't fully understand, or still have questions about?

  3. Why do you think it is important to bring new members into KSI?
