Hope everyone is doing well as of recent! I apologize for posting this later than expected as well.
As you know, we use this site for communication, planning, and bonding as a community. Although we run virtually everything freely at this time, we would like donations of time and effort if you could spare it. Many of us are very busy, including myself, with university, work, or other schooling programs, but it doesn't change the fact that our site needs some TLC to keep current.
Widget&Roster: Although this needs a bit of TLC, this portion of the work will be kept within admin control. The widgets that don't respond currently are known about, but cannot be fixed until certain ports are opened on the Teamspeak side. Although many of us are capable, none of us have the permissions into the ports. Until this changes, this widget will not function. Any new problems with widgets need to be reported to an admin or higher. The roster will also be kept under admin control as we don't want untrusted people obtaining information about our members (such as emails for spamming). Please remember that admins will be keeping our roster clean. This means that if you are gone without notice for extended periods of time, your account will first be limited, then will be removed. The time period of this is dependent on your rank and can be found under the "How to become an officer or moderator" thread under "Important Info."
"Marketing"&Development: This is under the control of ALL staff members. Officers are the head of this section. Marketing is essentially spreading the word about our guild. This means that if you are a part of another community (one that wouldn't mind you spreading the word), it is your job to give them links and answer their questions. This can be done in game, on other websites, in person, on your phone, etc, etc. I think the part we're lacking the most in right now, is other website marketing.
Development is also an important part. For every application we get, I would like to see some awesome and polite responses to ease new members into the community. This is not to say that I haven't been seeing this, but I have noticed the need for it still! Development also refers to original posts. If you have something to offer the community such as how-to's, spotting mistakes in vital posts (it happens to all of us), or improvements over all, then please either post or notify people to make these changes. A big thing that needs improvement right now is our "About Us" section. Any helpful individuals for that project would be appreciated.
Interested in helping?
If you can help on a week to week basis, please read the "How to become and officer or moderator" thread, and I will get back to you asap. If you can't make a commitment or if you don't want to be promoted, helping us out by encouraging other members to hop on our website to stay informed would be a huge help as well. A large portion of our guild is currently inactive from our site, but this is where we post all information to keep people informed. Asking people to get on the site from one member to another is far more effective than an officer or moderator asking a member to get on the forums.
If you have questions or need help with anything as usual, please contact myself or any other Admin or Mod.
Thank you to those who plan on helping us out in future, ~Court
