      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

“Top 3 pieces of advice you wish you’d gotten when you were recruited into KSI.”

• Original recruit date: April 2013

• The first piece of advice I wish I would have gotten would have to be not to worry what other people think of you. There are a lot of people who are just out for their own gain, and would say anything to make you look bad. I would totally tell myself to not care about their thoughts, and continue to do what I felt was right.

• The second piece of advice I would have loved to have gotten would be if you see something you want, go and get it, whether it be a spot in a dept, or in the officer staff. Put in that time and effort, and you can achieve greatness!

• The third piece of advice I wish I had sooner would be to make friends! There are HUNDREDS of members within KSI, and you never know who you will click with! Don't be afraid to go out and play with other people, and get to know them! Who knows, maybe that friendship you make will last a lifetime.

GT:KSI Harmony 7 

Originally recruited:5/13/2013

1st piece of advice: Always understand the work people are putting into the community. Go into each new journey with passion, and understanding. Never let the members feel the same struggle you went through when you first joined. 

2nd piece: Live by the Code of Conduct! We have this set in place for a reason. If we follow the standard we can have a cohesive experience throughout the community. 

3rd piece: Recruiting is important for many reasons, but retaining the people you have is one of the most important things. Member retention is how we keep people in this community. The family feel and community aspect of KSI is why we are here and it's what will retain our future leaders.

Recruited on 1/17/18

When I first joined KSI I was quite uncomfortable with being in chat parties with new people and that went double for anyone with a 7 in their name. Three things that I would like to have known when I  first  joined KSI are; First thing is that you get out as much as you put in. The more involved you are in the community the more you and the community benefit from each other. Second thing is don't be afraid to make mistakes. Not every recruiting attempt is going to be successful, don't get discouraged just because things done go well. Third thing is that this community of people that might not be social all the time, though they are willing to help whenever they are available. It is the  support and the comroderry that makes this community so wonderful to be apart of.
