Council Reboot


The Council rank is back!

Hello again, everyone. This article regards a subject that was a common focal point of a few past discussions. That being said, such dialogues have not touched down on the subject quite as precisely as this one. As a handful of you have probably already guessed, this pertains the reintroduction of the Council rank.

 

Without further ado, the members of the new Council are as follows:

The former four are veterans of the Council rank, with Stefan and Shuruia being new additions to the rank. Congratulations and good luck to all of them; they all assuredly deserve it.

 

Why is Council being brought back?
Previously, the removal of the Council rank created a considerable gap between the Administrators and Division Leader ranks. With Roy and SoJa being the only two individuals within the Administrator group, this has ultimately left them swamped with work. The reintroduction of the Council rank is intended to bridge the aforementioned gap and to remove some of the work and stress from the Administrators.

 

How will the new Council operate?
Unlike the Council of old, members of the new Council are not required to directly manage servers and/or divisions. In fact, they are encouraged not to. That being said, Council members are not forbidden from server/division management as long as such actions do not interfere with their performance within the Council. While individual server management falls to Server Managers with Division Leaders managing their respective divisions, Council members manage the GFL community in a broader sense. This will include, but is not limited to:

  • Handling the Division Leaders (keeps them in-line, handles reports, etc).
  • Handling community events and potential sponsorships/partnerships, etc.
  • Handling web-sided suggestions along with the moderators.
One particular step we have taken to avoid one of the main issues of the previous Council (the rank suffering from a high turnover rate) from arising is to balance the workload of the Council team itself. This means that the Council will begin at six members as opposed to the one - three members of its previous incarnation. Alongside this, a ticket system has been implemented for Council members to easily understand and respond to any issues that are sent their way. More information about the ticket system shall be released at a later date as the system is still under construction.

 

As Council members are more involved in community affairs rather than server management, they are not required to maintain high activity on the servers. This is another step towards the retention of Council members. However, they are expected to maintain forum activity to a high degree, as well as being somewhat active on TS3.

 

How this will presently affect divisions
With the ascension of Stefan, Juky and Shuruia, the the CS:S and TF2 divisions respectively shall be currently left without Division Leaders. Although this can be a cause for concern, it is important to note that both of these divisions do not require a great deal of effort to maintain in the first place. Until individuals are appointed to once again fill these positions, the aforementioned Council members will continue to lead and support their respective divisions, albeit unofficially. Those that are chosen to be the new Division Leaders shall be revealed in a later update.

 

Thanks.

congrats on new council guys. 

Great update.

 

I'm hesitant to like it just yet.  I'm extremely happy about each person's movement towards council whether they had it before or were recently promoted; however, I am concerned about the gap on CS:S (no Division Leader, which was addressed in the article).  CS:S may not require a great deal of management, but given its decaying nature at this time (and likely for the rest of its lifetime), we should be aware that it is an incredibly unstable community who have shown ease at transitioning to other communities wherever a problem may arise.

 

I'm not meaning that members will leave, and I have nothing to frown about at this time  (I'm very happy with this community)...  I am talking about stability.  I can balance my pen in a vertical position onto the table.  So long as nothing touches or wobbles the table, then my pen will remain standing.  As anyone would know from basic physics, that pen is unstable even though it stands without problem...  A gentle wobble, someone walking by, or just a simple gust of wind can knock it over.  Of course: It takes little to no effort for me to hold the pen up if that is my desire.  A little bit of management will preserve that pen's position so long as I desire it, or if I am able to coordinate for the next person to hold it up.

 

GFL's CS:S servers are in a fantastic and desirable state, but CS:S is losing population in general, and I would hate to see any risk in our community's success in those servers.  I'm aware of multiple other communities striving for our success, and if we do not preserve a careful eye or management (no matter how little the work may be just like the little effort required to preserve my pen's state), then I feel like we are putting ourselves into a more unsafe position and introducing an unnecessary risk.  I hope these positions may be filled soon.

 

Great update, great people, and thanks for keeping us in the loop.  Cheers!

Anyway:

WOW CONGRATS!
