I am working 12 hour shift tomorrow so I wont be able to make it but I think someone should record the whole meeting.

Yes if some one could record it for those of us who are going to miss it, then possibly create a forum thread for our input and what not on what was said after we listen to it;.

Introduction:

 

Hello everyone,

 

First of all I want to thank everyone for coming. I want to apologize for my absence over the last few weeks. All I want to say on the matter is it was a personal issue and I am working through it. We have a lot of topics to cover and I want to get through them as quickly and efficiently as possible so we do not have to lose anyone half way through the meeting. I want to personally thank each and every one of you for what you do for Rencorner. I know I am busy a lot and I do not get to say it very often, but without you guys we wouldn't be here. Anyways if you look at the forum topic I made you can see the agenda of the meeting. On that note I would like to talk about the philosophy of Rencorner.

 

Philosophy:

 

Rencorner started out as a Renegade community. Since Renegade we have expanded into three other games, one of them, CS:GO, being still quite new. We have expanded and gained many members and yes, we have lost a few over the years. I believe the thing we are missing now is the common vision we all need to share. So I will tell you what I picture Rencorner being. We have always been fair and always gave people second chances and I believe that is a strong foundation. In the times I have not been around I have noticed people really don't know what to do in certain situations or do not know the policy on it, so I want to clarify. Rencorner is here to attract new players to our servers, to provide fun and fair gaming, and to make people feel like they have a new home. A place where they can escape to from whatever is troubling them in real life. Over the past months we have come closer than ever and I feel people have become too comfortable. We need to concentrate on getting new players, correcting players that have broke rules, and finding ways to make sure people like it here from the moment they join. The bans in the servers have escalated dramatically, and we need to find alternative solutions to them. Players that are banned from the server are players we do not have in the community. We need to strive to always be better and always improve our servers, our mods, and our community as a whole. Always remember if you are unsure of something ASK. Please do not act first and think later. As a gaming community we are still new and we need to establish ourselves. We need to go on into the future of gaming and come out on top. To do this we need to act as one cohesive unit. Every moderator or administrator should act in the same way for each situation. There should be no opinions in the matter. It should always be to act in what in a way that benefits the community and not the person. To elaborate, If one mod bans someone for a specific reason such as griefing, we need to be asking ourselves did the person who did the griefing know better, was it a server build that wasn't protected, by banning this person does it make the server better or does it cost us a player. Every single decision a mod makes should be the same decision every other mod makes. To make sure we can do this I have implemented moderator training. Mod training will take place over decided dates and teach moderators to do in each situation. It will provide guidelines in how to act and it will help to make us all a proper functioning moderating team. Later in the meeting we will discuss the trainers and have a later meeting to discuss a game plan. Also to make things more clear, there will be a stickied topic in each moderator forum with common scenarios and the proper actions. As we continue to grow I feel this is important and will make for a more fluid approach to moderating. Thank you and let us begin the rest of the meeting.

 

 

Closing:

 

Again I want to thank everyone for attending the meeting and I look forward to implementing the changes suggested. As Rencorner grows we grow with it and I am pleased to work with each and everyone of you in the future to help make Rencorner a place we are all proud of. Thank you guys for all your hard work and support. Much love from me and the entire staff.

 

Have a good night.

True, it was amazing!

 

It was a good 2 hour long meeting maybe longer. 

 

But, it covered a lot of thing going in Rencorner.

 

So, that was great information we all got yesterday.

 

Maybe now we have a better understanding / idea.

 

Thanks, 

 

Volcom!
