I'm laughing my ass off at the rule of having to opt out of every clan event. "Honey wait, I'll be down for dinner in a minute. I have to let the clan know that I can't make it to the gaming event!". How about I let you guys know when I can make it?
Well, look what we've done before; Told ppl to tell us if they'll attend the event and there were at most 2 ppl actually doing that. This way, we find out who would be there if they could, because they might care about it and it's the only way to find out who r the ppl who obviously don't wanna be a part of this community at all. Ofc, this might work, or it might not work, but i can tell u that if ppl wouldn't change their behavior, there'll be 3/4 of our members kicked who would still be in there if we just wanted them to tell us if they'll be there.
... Also, there can be times for people where they don't have a microphone available and they then think it's pointless to log on to TeamSpeak (which it is, why isn't having a microphone a requirement? They cost 5 bucks) but still play a game or two. What's so bad about that?
Ofc, it makes things more difficult than in a situation where everybody has a microphone. However, it's still way easier than if they wouldn't be on teamspeak at all. Just imagine this situation, which actually happened to me quite often: I'm walking around the map, killing ppl n stuff and then suddenly i'm on my way to an elevator, not noticing the mine above. Now, one of the guys on teamspeak who actually had a mic told me about that, and i avoided dying. Also, it's alot easier to communicate for both; The one who's got no mic doesn't have to read the chat all the time and be distracted by it and die, which happens quite alot when reading while playing, and the one having a mic doesn't have to type everything and risk the possibility of being type killed.
Now, what i actually think about teamspeak with an international clan, ofc, there'll be ppl having mics but they wouldn't necessarily talk, simply because they feel like there english skills wouldn't be enough. But when listening to others for a while, u get more confident and learn way more than u would when just visiting school. So why wouldn't u let them have a chance to learn? Btw, i'm not entirely sure, but what i've heard already, i doubt 5 bucks would be enough to avoid being annoyed by the person talking after half an hour xD
And when are there going to be some clear forum rules?
At first i thought no discimination and activity would be enough, but you're right, there should be more rules just for the forums, and i'll add them later when i'm back.
Activity part of the rule set should be one of the two. TeamSpeak or Forum. TS preferably.
Why not both? If you're just on teamspeak, u barely get to know of all the events, suggestions, discussions and everything. Also, u never know what other ppl suggested or stated in discussions if you're not online at the same time. And if you're just on the forums, this won't really help improving the feel of a community, instead, it's just people having a certain different opinion each, but not having a personality.
Squad part of the rule set. I still think that Having a mic is the only way to participate in any type of scrim/event and should be a mandatory thing.
Yea, that's what i've been thinking about this morning too, and i'll add a proper wording for that rule later when i'm back. But thnx for reminding me, i might have forgotten this again already xD
Then again who am i to judge how sht is being run.
Well, i know, not long ago the democracy was not exactly present, even if there wasn't much stuff which was to be discussed, but we're really trying to change this again, or else there would not have been that statement "These rules have been agreed on in the Admin meeting at Saturday, but we are still open for any changes.
" in the end
And these are just suggestions of which we think they're quite right, but if we were 100% sure about that and wouldn't let anybody else's opinion being stated, we would have locked this thread immediately after posting, wouldn't have added that statement in the end asking for ur guys opinion and u would have been banned every time u told us ur opinion anywhere else
