    vVv LordJerith got a reaction from TruFlare in Being Good Internet citizens and An Overdue Apology   
    Hey everyone,

    I wanted to update you on something we have discovered that has effected everyone's ADL experience: our site-wide ban on Reddit.
     

    So, why was vVv Gaming.com banned?
    We have been banned for several reasons. I want you to understand why, so that we all become better citizens of the internet. Reasons:
    members/staff actively engaged in vote brigading. It's when a group of people get together to up vote the same thing, be it a single person, or a group of people representing something.  It's just not fair, and hurts what Reddit is all about at it's core. If our events are good or appealing, people will organically upvote the events. Period. Former member, Sundown, who is now IP banned from our site, did two unforgivable things: He basically crossed too many lines in his rage against certain Reddit moderators He used my position at Riot Games to gain clout and attempt to bully Reddit moderators. This was personal. No one should ever do anything like this, ever. Period.  
    What are we going to do about it?
    We are not going to post Reddit links in the Shoutbox or forums to upvote. Go to Reddit and find the links as anyone would, by your normal Reddit use. We have removed Cam from vVv, and made sure all staff are trained on this C Wide has been working to rebuild our relationship with the moderators. As you already know, if you get caught doing this, expect to be banned use /r/summonerschool and /r/leagueofleglends normally, get involved and be a good Reddit member  
    Finally, our apology to Reddit:




     
    I want to apologize to the Reddit moderators and the community for this behavior. It's clear in my absence that a lot of things were not going well, but this topped the cake. Regardless, I'm the owner, and I take full responsibility for this.  vVv Gaming is committed to be good citizens of the internet, particularly Reddit. You have my sincere apology and a sincere pledge to make things right.

    Thanks for taking the time to read my first official update since I've come back. After a lot of conversations with staff, community, sponsors, applicants and alumni, it was time to set a direction for vVv for the next 12 months.  We want to be transparent with everyone, so you can hold me accountable for working toward these goals. This reflects our commitment to help YOU create awesome community experiences.
     
    When I give interviews, I make sure every member knows: "Ask not what vVv can do for you, but what you can do for vVv."  As I stated above, vVv Gaming is YOUR community. Staff is here to help YOU make it awesome.   Once again, this is YOUR community. We're here to help YOU shape, develop and grow vVv.

    MISSION (for 2015-2016)
     
    "CREATE AWESOME EXPERIENCES FOR COMPETITIVE GAMERS" (for 2015-2016)

    GOALS have the highest rated organized play events as rated by competitive gamers have the most attended organized play events highest rated is more important than most attended be recognized as one of the best competitive gaming organizations in the world as rated by competitive gamers and our members be known as a talent factory by competitive gamers and sponsors

    EXECUTION AND TACTICS
    We now know where this big vVv Gaming ship is headed. We all know the mission. We know the objectives and goals we want to achieve, and we have strategies that tell us how to achieve these goals. This is actually the easy part. Now comes the hard part.  
    Each of the strategic items above will need executions and tactics. EXECUTIONS are what is done to deliver on or to coordinate a strategy. EXECUTIONS are products and services and experiences we deliver to help us execute our strategy that will help us achieve our goals to accomplish our mission. TACTICS are actions taken to achieve our strategy.
    For example, the League of Legends Amateur Draft League (LoL ADL) is an EXECUTION (Product/Service) that helps us achieve our strategic objective of “create and run organized play events for competitive gamers.” How we set up the Mumble channels and how we name them are TACTICS.

    As a vVv community member or applicant your EXECUTIONS should include: Recruiting good community members Engaging with applicants Supporting vVv on social media (Facebook) (Twitter) Being active in our forums, shoutbox & Mumble/XBL/ PS4  I hope this post helps everyone know who is accountable for what, and what we are focused on. I would love and appreciate any feedback, thoughts and/or suggestions. It's YOUR community, we're here to help YOU make it awesome.

    vVv LordJerith got a reaction from vVv Buzz in Five Pillars of vVv Gaming   
    Value: Having members that are all adding value is a critical part of having a rich and vibrant community. There are many ways to add value: creating content for our partnered YouTube channel, having a strong social media presence with appropriate vVv Branding on your profile, being social on our forums and helpful to aspiring players and applicants to even just donating. To see the full list of ways to add value click here. If you are unsure of how you can add value, reach out to the community for help. Excellence: There are two ways to demonstrate excellence in vVv Gaming. The first way representing our brand and community professionally at major lan events. The second way is by being a passionate community member that excels at adding value to vVv Gaming. Diversity: vVv Gaming is a diverse community. This is our strength! vVv Gaming has people that come from various backgrounds and we openly embrace differences in race, national origin, age, disability, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs and gender. In order to get the most passionate and talented individuals, we want people to feel that they are part of a welcoming and accepting community. We also welcome people who are passionate about a variety of games, the key feature of vVv is our diverse community! No matter what games you play, we want you to feel welcome as a member of vVv Gaming. Instead of forming rivalries among the different games we play, we should be excited that we have such a varying group of people who can all come together as part of something great. That's what makes vVv Gaming such a fantastic place to be! Chain of Command: If you have a problem with someone, please talk to them directly and IN PRIVATE. Always start with the person that you are having the problem with. DO NOT bring it to the Shoutbox or post about your problem. If you can't resolve it, then bring it to staff. Sponsors: Just as you have to add value to vVv, so does vVv Gaming have to add value to its sponsors. In order for vVv Gaming to support the best gamers and provide our community with events, opportunities and contests, you need to show them that you care. Represent their products, promote them and spread the word by supporting their social media initiatives.

    So. The ADL was great, possibly one of the best that I have played in since the ADL started. I am glad that I am a part of the community, and I might move back over to League. Really thinking of getting back into it, and playing the PS4 and Hearthstone as cool off. I can't wait to see what CWide has in store for us, and I am will continue to support the League of Legends section that vVv supports, and I hope that everyone else does also.

    MISSION (for 2015-2016)
     
    "CREATE AWESOME EXPERIENCES FOR COMPETITIVE GAMERS" (for 2015-2016)

    GOALS have the highest rated organized play events as rated by competitive gamers have the most attended organized play events highest rated is more important than most attended be recognized as one of the best competitive gaming organizations in the world as rated by competitive gamers and our members be known as a talent factory by competitive gamers and sponsors

    STRATEGY create and run organized play events for competitive gamers sponsor and develop amateur teams to participate in and promote organized play events partner and deliver value to sponsors that create products and services for competitive gamers create and evolve an identity that competitive gamers want create and manage a clear path for competitive gamers who want our identity create and manage an ecosystem that develops competitive gamers and future gaming professionals

    EXECUTION AND TACTICS
    We now know where this big vVv Gaming ship is headed. We all know the mission. We know the objectives and goals we want to achieve, and we have strategies that tell us how to achieve these goals. This is actually the easy part. Now comes the hard part.  
    Each of the strategic items above will need executions and tactics. EXECUTIONS are what is done to deliver on or to coordinate a strategy. EXECUTIONS are products and services and experiences we deliver to help us execute our strategy that will help us achieve our goals to accomplish our mission. TACTICS are actions taken to achieve our strategy.
    For example, the League of Legends Amateur Draft League (LoL ADL) is an EXECUTION (Product/Service) that helps us achieve our strategic objective of “create and run organized play events for competitive gamers.” How we set up the Mumble channels and how we name them are TACTICS.

    As a vVv community member or applicant your EXECUTIONS should include: Recruiting good community members Engaging with applicants Supporting vVv on social media (Facebook) (Twitter) Being active in our forums, shoutbox & Mumble/XBL/ PS4  I hope this post helps everyone know who is accountable for what, and what we are focused on. I would love and appreciate any feedback, thoughts and/or suggestions. It's YOUR community, we're here to help YOU make it awesome.

    vVv LordJerith got a reaction from TruFlare in Rebuilding the LoL Division   
    We hear you. Loudly and clearly. empty mumble people resigned lack of leadership in the division lack of accountability for members I hear you.  We fucked up. We're going to try and fix it.

    We can't change the past, but we can make the future better. So, I want to share the vision that I have for the League of Legends division.
     

    I believe, and I am asking you to tell me if I am wrong, that what you want is: a place that is fun and feels like your home a place where everyone knows you and accepts you fun events that allow you play with others the vVv tag to mean something. You want members who: are active and social in game on mumble on the forums invested in the success of applicants make others feel welcome recruit others to play with and help the division grow support vVv on social media enjoy competition, but are not trying to go pro Assuming the above is true, then I am making the following changes to the division: Bringing back vVv C Wide to run the vVv LoL Division ADLs will be overseen by its own product manager, vVv NaturaL vVv Medusa vVv Unverclopt and vVv SugarBear will be handling applicants and running the LoL ADL



    I invite those of you who strayed away to give us a chance to make it better.  Please reach out to vVv C Wide or myself, personally, if you have any questions or concerns. It's going to take some time to rebuild our credibility with some of you, but everyone mentioned above and myself are willing to put in that work.  

    The first opportunity for people to come together will be the ADL this Sunday, July 26th.  I also will hold an AMA right after the event. So, I'll be on Mumble, personally, and I invite current members, applicants, previous members and those thinking about applying to come to the AMA and ask questions.

    We have work to do, and it will take time.  We're committed to fixing this.  We can't change the past, but we're committed to making a very fun future for vVv Gaming's LoL division.

    Value: Having members that are all adding value is a critical part of having a rich and vibrant community. There are many ways to add value: creating content for our partnered YouTube channel, having a strong social media presence with appropriate vVv Branding on your profile, being social on our forums and helpful to aspiring players and applicants to even just donating. To see the full list of ways to add value click here. If you are unsure of how you can add value, reach out to the community for help. Excellence: There are two ways to demonstrate excellence in vVv Gaming. The first way representing our brand and community professionally at major lan events. The second way is by being a passionate community member that excels at adding value to vVv Gaming. Diversity: vVv Gaming is a diverse community. This is our strength! vVv Gaming has people that come from various backgrounds and we openly embrace differences in race, national origin, age, disability, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs and gender. In order to get the most passionate and talented individuals, we want people to feel that they are part of a welcoming and accepting community. We also welcome people who are passionate about a variety of games, the key feature of vVv is our diverse community! No matter what games you play, we want you to feel welcome as a member of vVv Gaming. Instead of forming rivalries among the different games we play, we should be excited that we have such a varying group of people who can all come together as part of something great. That's what makes vVv Gaming such a fantastic place to be! Chain of Command: If you have a problem with someone, please talk to them directly and IN PRIVATE. Always start with the person that you are having the problem with. DO NOT bring it to the Shoutbox or post about your problem. If you can't resolve it, then bring it to staff. Sponsors: Just as you have to add value to vVv, so does vVv Gaming have to add value to its sponsors. In order for vVv Gaming to support the best gamers and provide our community with events, opportunities and contests, you need to show them that you care. Represent their products, promote them and spread the word by supporting their social media initiatives.
