    vVv Milkyy got a reaction from vVv GRINGO JR in Want to join vVv Gaming? (Application Inside)   
    Thank you for your interest in vVv Gaming! We are a professional competitive gaming community that strives to provide an exceptional experience for gamers at all levels. We provide educational and aspirational content and programs which include articles, blogs, and media on our YouTube channel. vVv Gaming is the home to some of the best players, coaches, and staff. So what separates vVv Gaming from all the other teams, clans, organizations, and communities? The quality of our people. By submitting an application you are asking to join the best community in competitive gaming.
     
    How to Apply for Membership with vVv Gaming:
    Step One: Ensure that you fulfill the requirements to apply for membership.  This includes:
    You are at least 20 years old. If you have previously applied and had your application closed, ensure that at least 30 days have passed since the closure of the application. You have previously joined our Discord server. You can find a guide on how to do this here You have gone through our Common Knowledge article located here. You have filled out your profile information on the forum. You have filled out Contact Methods on your forum profile. You have filled out About Me Section on your forum profile. You have uploaded a personal picture of you on your forum profile.
      Step Two: In this forum section, create a new thread with the application questions posted below.  Ensure you answer these questions with thought, detail and make sure that they are fully answered (these can be copied and pasted).  Title of your post should be: Member Application - Your Forum Name
    Be sure to make the font color of your answers a different color than the font of the questions. This makes your application easier for people to read. Avoid colors that are hard to read against the dark gray background of our forums (Example: Question: Answer). You want to make your application easy to read.
      Step Three: Along with staying active on the forums and on Discord, make sure to look at your application to answer questions others may have.
    What should I do after I post my application?
    In order for you to become a full vVv Gaming Member, you need to pass your pre-interview and final interview.  Acquiring your interview is a process that can take between 5 and 15 weeks.  In order to get your pre-interview, you need to acquire 3 endorsements from current vVv Members.  There are few clauses to be aware of in order for an endorsement to be valid (and also to make sure we do not close your application).  They are as follows:
    The member endorsing you cannot have the "Chop Chop Danger" rank on their profile. The member endorsing you has to fill out a short questionnaire and post it on your application thread.  The questions must be answered with meaning or the endorsement will be rejected. The member endorsing you cannot have endorsed another applicant in the past 7 days. For each endorsement, you are given three weeks to acquire it.  Time is measured from the time your application is posted or the previous endorsement was posted.  Failure to acquire an endorsement within a three week period will result in your application being closed. Upon acquiring an endorsement, you cannot gain another for 10 days. Lastly, and most importantly, you are not allowed to bribe, blackmail, nor even simply ask members for endorsements.
      If I am not allowed to ask members for endorsements, then how do I acquire them? The answer is simple, by adding value and being active on Discord and forum.  vVv Gaming members will of their own accord endorse the applicants they believe are the right fit for the community.  If you are not receiving any endorsements and your application is at risk of being closed, you can ask for feedback on your application.
    Who is vVv Gaming Looking for?
    vVv Gaming is looking for passionate and dedicated competitive gamers to share the greatest experience in competitive gaming! Discord and the forums are the primary "virtual spaces" where our members interact. We do ask all member to represent vVv in and out of the game in a positive manner, avoiding arguments, drama, judgment, and other negative interactions and favoring the more healthy modes of expression: compassion, empathy, and humor. Toxicity ruins the experience of players and people around them, and if you can't have fun playing games, then you should probably not play them. vVv Gaming is a diverse community, welcoming people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, gaming preferences, professional backgrounds, planetary origins, living or undead status, and extremeness of drag queen makeup. Just don't be a Buzz Killington, Debbie Downer, or Goodie Twoshoes. Applicants should be excited and aware of this environment and respect our diversity to the fullest!
    Application Questions:
    Name: Age: Location: Steam profile link: Battle.Net Tag: What is the game you are currently most active in and why? (only name one game) What are some other games that you currently play? How did you hear about vVv Gaming? Were you referred to the site? If so, by whom? Who do you currently know in vVv Gaming? How did you get to know them? Why are you interested in joining vVv Gaming? What are your hobbies and interests outside of gaming? How do you plan to add value to vVv Gaming? Will you happily promote vVv Gaming onto your social channels? What do you know about our Community Game Nights?

    vVv Milkyy got a reaction from vVv Minjaaa in CHOP LIST APRIL '20   
    All,
    I’ve been taking a back seat since posting this, in order to take time to listen to members and the community to be able to move forward with this. 
    Whilst many of you have taken the time to raise concerns or comments, this isn’t something out of the ordinary when a Chop List is announced. Although some of you may disagree, I feel this has shown a positive reaction. Whilst some vVv “Honorary Members” sit within the Discord but haven’t engaged or been on the site for mass extent of the time, they are now engaging somewhat more than they have done in recent weeks/months/possibly years. Whilst I disagree with some comments, as President, I feel there needs to be a happy medium, something we need to listen to. I do feel those recent members who have made their cases heard, have a point which we should listen.
    For those who have reached out to me it’s appreciated, along with members sharing their thoughts over the matter. Jerry’s comments on three points of what might an Honorary Member face are detailed below.
    Honorary member doesn't game anymore and therefore understands they are getting chopped, and respects the decision They become active again They explain to Milkyy why they can't be active now, but would like to remain. Which a number of you have done recently which I appreciate. 
    vVv Community Members - for those who are active within the community and want to engage in community game nights, publicly text chat or talk via voice comms to other members, help new applicants, post within our forums and promote vVv through their social channels.  
    Honorary Members - earned through achievements by the leadership team and will gain the v’a for life. Although, where possible we would like some activity, we all would like to keep in touch!
    We will make changes within Discord by taking suggestions onboard from this post and these will be put in place tonight.
    We have already taken measures to decrease voice comms for games that aren’t as popular anymore or participated in along with those titled game chats.
    This said, there will be a removal of vVv Member Chat and replaced into a Community Member Chat for everyone including applicants to engage with.
    So, in summary and on reflection from all responses, here is what’s going to happen.
    Honorary members will be removed from the chopping block and remain as normal. The community have made it clear they still want to respect the fact they are inactive within the community or not. 
    Community members listed below will remain within vVv after reaching out to me and on discussion positive outcome has been made. I hope those listed will reach out to me in time  
    vVv Samona 

    This highlights a time where the community has come together and made their voices heard, it’s down to the leadership team and myself to stand back, listen, take note and make those decisions. I think we have done that. 
    I’m happy to say this should conclude the dialog and move forward together.

    The way that I see Honorary Members, they are individuals that have positively influenced vVv and left their marks in history. While not exactly 1=1 equivalent, it would be similar to "chopping" past tournament achievements just because players are no longer active in vVv. So while the intent is in the right direction, it is the wrong approach to go about it.
    Now, if y'all want to turn Honorary Members into Historic Members (exemplary members of the past), and create a new tier of membership where members are exemplary and are required to remain active, then yea that would be something that would work. So basically splitting Honorary into Historic Member (or any similar name) and then Exemplary Member (or similar name) for active ones. This keeps our history untouched and elevates current exemplary members where they should be. Eventually Exemplary Members will get archived into Historic Members as they retire.
    As for my activity, I only have a Switch for console, I currently playing WoW classic. I recently started to play Valorant and have picked up some games with Amped and Stitches. I'm only active around here when my presence or help is needed. Also if anyone wants to play Valorant, hit me up.

    vVv Gaming is moving in direction of it's new vision and in doing this requires a clean out of inactive members listed below. This list confirms activity on the site, when they last logged in. Some of which haven't logged in since 2018, some going back as far as 2014.
    Some of these members within the List, I have seen on discord, now is your time to start getting active, and have 2 days to contact me directly, if you still wish to be within vVv Gaming. Failure to reach out within 48 hours - you will be chopped from vVv Gaming.
    Community Members - Inactive
    vVv Sneake - 30/05/19
    vVv Slick - 11/05/19
    vVv Petedz - 11/04/18
    vVv Bliss - 21/07/19
    vVv Riguy - 14/02/19
    vVv Nero - 12/06/19
    Each of these members will have an private message sent out to them to inform them of the Executive decision made, and they will have a further 5 days to make contact directly to either myself or vVv F R 0 o T x explaining why you want to remain within vVv and will start becoming more active in hope to re-instate their vVv's which will ultimately be decided by the community. They will then be tracked on activity within the community to make sure they are keeping up there promise that they want to be part of our community.
    I think the guidance set above is fair and something of which marks the start of motion of our vision moving forward.

    vVv Milkyy got a reaction from vVv F R 0 o T x in Four Pillars of vVv Gaming   
    vVv Gaming is proud to announce reforms under new leadership that we are a cross-platform community organization with a competitive edge.

    Our Pillars
    •    Live vVv, Breathe vVv
    One of the underlying messages I keep hearing is that people want to play together. We are here because we're gamers, and playing games together is one of the core elements of vVv. Activities this should include are community game nights in specific titles, streamer viewing parties, and tournament viewing events.

    •    Be Social, Be Involved
    We believe in everyone gaining essential information from our community on how to play better or ways to improve your game. Get involved with our community game nights, enjoy sessions with our ex-pro gamers giving you tips on how to play game types, and what gun classes you could be using—bringing you entertainment to take your gaming to the next level while having fun.

    •    One Team, One Dream
    Once upon a time, vVv got people jobs in the games industry. Well, that time is still now, but we can expand the opportunities beyond the games industry. We can support the people who want to hone games industry skills (community management, event coordination, etc.) and also encourage members who want to become streamers, influencers, and content creators. Specifically for Streamers, this is a symbiotic relationship. Streamers represent vVv, vVv Gaming supports streamers (viewers, retweets, etc.), and that system could build some real steam once it gets momentum.
    One of the earliest things I heard about vVv Gaming was that it should be a place where playing with the members is fun. We've always kept out or removed, people who didn't fit the culture, and we should continue to do the same now. Part of this is holding each other accountable, and part of it is moderation, but we should maintain that culture of "I could play games with everyone here."

    •    Challengers
    vVv Gaming's eSports vision, in terms of PRO Teams, will no longer be our focus, due to the sheer cash buy-in required and available capital needed, including from sponsors alike to even step foot into leagues is something we no longer are physically able to continue. 
    However, we carry our history for being a previous eSports Pro Team with accomplishments more significant than others with our mass list of honors.
    This isn't to say that competitive gaming is entirely out of the question. I am focused on leaving the door ajar for amateur teams to compete online, whether this is on the internet leagues such as Gamebattles, EGL, and other online gaming leagues. Our growing vVv Community members will support you on every step of the way. 
    vVv Gaming will no longer be sponsoring teams at this current stage.

    I agree, I think it's great to have you around Hoagie, running the community game nights off your own back shows the level of commitment to the community you have.
    Agreed on the notes above, will take these on board in preparation for confirming the finer details.
    I have also added the voice comms CGN channel for you.

    1. CoD would be the best since nearly everyone in the community has it. Any other game would depend on how many people show and what system they all play on.
    2. Bi-weekly for sure for now. If enough people are on and want to party up then we can have a kind of impromptu CGN weekly.
    3. Evening would be best. We started at 8pm est last night and ran until just after 11pm est.
    4. Since CoD is the biggest cross play game out that most of this community has, and that can hold more than 4 players in a lobby, there will be times where I'm sure we're going to have to run console specific lobbies so that CoD isn't the only game we play each CGN. As more games that peak the communities interest release we can re-evaluate this if those games are cross-play enabled. 
     
    On a side note could we get a CGN check in voice channel in discord for people to go into in preparation of the CGN starting? Would be a good way to see who all is going to play and determine what everyone wants to play.
