Some of you may notice that I have been organizing ranks in the in game org from the RSI website.
In an attempt to get a better view of our more active members I have been culling the herd a bit.
Let me emphasize that NO MEMBERS ARE BEING REMOVED.
What has happened so far is that anyone who has not been to the RSI site in over a year has been demoted from Ensign rank to Recruit rank.
This allows me to better track our active members, even if they are only active on the website.
Some recruits who have been particularly active over the past few months have been promoted to Ensign. This is an arbitrary promotion based on my own observation right now, but in the coming weeks I hope to formalize the process so that members have a clear understanding of how and why they are given a particular rank and how to move up in ranks if they so desire.
I have also promoted our first Lieutenant rank member, Toruk.
Toruk is very active in the game and on this site and contributes to the guild/org with his comments as well as information he has gathered and consolidated into spreadsheets. So Congrats Toruk on your promotion.
What does the org rank mean?
Well right now not much. It is really just a way for me to organize our members into groups based on activity level.
But as we move forward, I will use the ranks for things like assigning roles in events or assisting with recruitment.
Right now, my thoughts are that we will have all new members come in as Recruit rank and after 30 days of activity in the org they can petition for Ensign rank. At that time the current officers will evaluate the recruit’s activity in the org and determine if they are eligible for promotion to Ensign.
And as I mentioned, in the near future I will outline my proposed ideas for advancement and what each rank entails in the org. I call it a proposed idea because I want to get feedback from all of you, to make this something all of us are satisfied with.
So keep an eye out for more info soon™
See you all in the verse!
