    vVv Saturn reacted to Echelon in re-introduction ex vVv   
    Hi again!

    So it's been a while since I've been round here. I use to have my V's back in 2014/15 during Call of Duty ghosts and Advanced Warfare. If you don't know I left mainly because playing on different teams for CoD just ended up with a conflict of interest. So since I'm thinking of coming back I thought I'd re introduce myself, I will say it's good to see some names that I still recognize around here like Bizkit, DulceArma and a few more

    I'm Mike, back when I had my V's I was known as Echelon but as of recently I renamed myself to Nanotrox and I've been focusing a lot more on streaming and it feels right to come back to vVv now and maybe even re apply for my V's, and back then I also use to play in CoD tournaments at LAN events, played in a lot of them placing in lots of different places in various CoD games

    I pretty much stream Warzone only atm but some other games do get thrown in here or there.

    I use to help out and play in the CDL (Cod Draft League) that vVv hosted back in AW honestly that was so much fun I'll hopefully be able to play and maybe help out in some CGN's soon

    Best moment from when I use to have my V's (See pics)

    I can't wait to get back involved with this awesome community once more! and get some of that awesome new merch! still got all my old vVv merch jersey, shirt, jumper, mouse mat I might have left, but I never stopped representing

    I can't, and won't speak on behalf of anybody but myself (so I'm a little biased).
    In my experience of being a member, staff member, and now honorary member I have come to learn the long way of what defines each tier of member. @vVv B1zkit mentioned putting a definition for what makes an honorary member...honorary, so here's mine. Becoming an honorary member is truly the pinnacle of what defines this community. To become members, we have all undergone trials to prove we can belong to the pack, whether it be activity on these forums, (shoutout to) the shoutbox, whichever voice platform we have called home, various community game nights or tournaments, or just playing with other current members. When chosen, the ultimate test was the interview which has welcomed all of us to this family. The difference between members and staff members is small, and in theory should be non-existent. It is the duty of all members to uphold the standards set by the community, however, staff focus those efforts in one particular direction or role. Honorary members, in theory, embody the ultimate in characteristics reflected by the community as a whole having left their energy, passion, and accomplishment back into the community that originally gave them that opportunity. Many of them leave for personal reasons and are required to step away for those reasons. Chopping honorary members, regardless of their inactivity, is a decision I disagree with entirely. By chopping these honorary members, it is disregarding whatever contribution they have made which is the platform by which we all enjoy the sense of family and belonging that has been created.
     
    To reiterate LordJerith's point: dialogue, in this scenario, is paramount. These members, all of them, have been in this family and have drifted away for reasons that are their own and 48 hours is an absurd amount of time to provide such an ultimatum. Throughout my involvement here: @vVv Bagzli is spot on and I believe his solution is at the very least a starting point in that dialogue.

    Honestly, I believe this was the wrong approach. I really don't mean to offend anyone and I am very sorry if you take it the wrong way but here is my opinion if you care for it.

    So far mentality of every president that got on board was, chop, chop and chop. Sadly I made the same mistake as well and in all honestly, I have not seen a single positive thing to come out of it.  I learned from this mistake and here is me trying to share what I learned so you don't repeat it. Recently we chopped away 90% of out discord members in a day, why? Because they were not active, and now they never will be. Why don't we go and chop 90% of our twitter followers? its the same thing as far as I see it, they don't follow nor re-post our content anyway, so whats the point, we can delete the account, create it again and start over. I honestly see that no different than what has been done so far with discord. I think its high time we realize that discord is a platform for advertising, socializing, information sharing and so much more all spun in one. Its best of every world (social media platform wise) and I feel we just threw that away. We can use it to have a following so much more immersive than any other website you can name. And for the chunk of people that is there and not involved, I don't see as a problem but rather an opportunity to get them involved.

    Maybe I understood it wrong when @vVv Doomhammer explained it to me all those years ago. Maybe I even misunderstood as I sat in Mumble server listening to @vVv LordJerith promoting @vVv sK1ppY to an honorary member back then, but it went something along like this. Skippy, you have done so much for our community that I am promoting you to an honorary member, that means you can never be chopped and is a way of the community thanking you for your hard work, donations and effort you have put in. You have done so much, you earned your V's for life. Now Jerry may not have used those words exactly, but that is what I understood him say behind his speech, and that is one of the key moments that made me want to stay involved with vVv through all the hardships I have watched it go through. So if I understood it wrong then that is on me, but if I haven't then I really think that chopping the honorary members is the wrong way to go.

    I understand the problem of getting honorary status and washing your hands away. I always saw this as an issue as I tried very hard to get people engaged back and had next to no success with anyone holding the honorary title. I back then decided that it wasn't the right problem for me to fix so I focused on building new content with new members as oppose to relying on the old who kept giving "making vVv great again" speech i keep seeing everywhere. I now find myself wishing I gave this problem a bit more thought and action back then, seeing where its going next.

    I don't like to be the person who just whines and complains, I like to be the person who bring a solution to the table, so I would like to offer a suggestion. And before I get into it, I just want to make it clear that I fully appreciate the great deal of time and effort invested in giving this matter a thought. I know it wasn't an easy decision and I know you debated it for a while and I hope you don't find my words too harsh as I really mean well and want you to succeed.

    The first thing is I believe that as oppose to chopping honorary members flat out and giving them some ultimatum, you try to understand them and actually ask them what they want. Will you ever come back? What will it take? Ask every person individually. If you really want to understand the problem then don't make a single post and expect answers, you have to get into those one on one conversations and actually hear the person and understand what they are saying, not just hear them, but really understand them.

    The second thing is, a lot of you here supporting this chop would of gotten chopped by your definition when I took over, I cant name very many of you that I see here to have come back to support vVv Gaming when I took over. You all went away and it doesn't matter why. So if I cut ties with you back then, well you wouldn't be here now coming back trying to rebuild. I see the members of vVv Gaming come and go in waves and these honorary members return every so often to come back and try to help. They have long periods of inactivity but they do come back eventually and try to help, even if its a post here and there offering their peace of mind. I always found those helpful. By chopping them, we are officially saying that we do not appreciate the work they did. So why on earth would they want to come back later?

    So the root of the problem as I see it is that the honorary role was meant to say, you did so much thank you. But it seems you want the honorary role to now also mean active to some degree. So why not archive (I wish I could find a better word to describe this) instead of chop. Why not still recognize people we are removing for what they did as oppose to flat out saying good bye. So the Honorary Role could still mean all those great things, but it can also mean the person is active to some degree and for those honorary members who no longer wish to be active at the present time, we simply move them to a historic role where their accomplishments are listed. We recognize the time and effort they put in, we acknowledge them still but also show that they are no longer actively involved in the community. And if they want to come back tomorrow and become active again, they can and we can move them back to honorary, it saves everyone feelings and we continue to thank them for their hard work. And we can decide on who to keep honorary and who to keep historic by talking to them individually. After all the work they put in, I think the least we can do is show them a bit of gratitude and respect by reaching out to them personally instead of some massive post of get active or get chopped.

    Bottom line is, I feel this was the wrong move and I feel it sends a wrong message to anyone who wants to get involved with vVv Gaming moving forward.

    Good afternoon vVv Gaming,
     
    vVv Gaming is proud to announce vVv Milkyy as the new President of vVv Gaming as well as vVv Fr0ot x as the new Vice President of vVv Gaming. Both are going to do an amazing job with the organization, they have many great ideas,  the future is bright with them at the helm. vVv Milkyy has been in vVv for over 10 years  and was a valued member of staff years ago with a wealth of knowledge and vVv Fr0ot x has been in the same amount of time I have which is 13 years. vVv Fr0ot x used to build/code our website so anything site related he will be able to handle, he is a huge asset. I am not going anywhere, as I stated in my previous post I am now an Executive board member of vVv Gaming with vVv RobZGod, vVv LordJerith  the owner and vVv Doomhammer.  We all have a wealth of knowledge and will lead them all the way, we are excited for the new direction vVv Gaming is going. The community is going to thrive and make vVv shine. Stay tuned for more, thank you all for being apart of vVv Gaming.
     
    Thank you,

    vVv Saturn reacted to vVv RobZ in What are you trying to improve on as a CoD player?   
    vVv has always been a place where the community can improve at the games they're playing with like minded members and gamers. Back in the Gears of War days, we used to have threads sharing feedback with each other on where we could improve and also share what we're trying to work on so that others could help support us.
     
    I'll kick this off!
     
    What I'm trying to improve during April on CoD:
    learn call-outs on competitive maps learn map choke-points, spawn points, and rotations for respawn game modes SnD setups learn more about class-setup options and create my own custom class setups based on my play-style  
    I'm not a competitive player, but when I play, I prefer to win and I believe the above will help make me a better player.
     
    If anyone has resources or ideas for how I can improve on the above, I welcome them!
     
    I also welcome everyone to post the areas that they are trying to improve on. It could be with a specific weapon (SMG/AR), game mode (SnD, HP, Dom), flaw in your play-style (being too aggressive/patient), improving communication, etc.

    vVv Saturn reacted to Buzz in Return of the Community Spotlight?   
    Would everyone be interested in returning of The community spotlight? Since we are starting to unroll the new site its time to start pushing content. I believe we have enough members  to be able to push a new article out bi-weekly. This will allow us to generate some content in and get our creative gears turning, bring the community closer through sharing our experience, and will give a stronger impression of the person behind the gamertag.  

    I would like to have the first article published on the forums June 13th, 2019 and the answers to the interview questions in my inbox no Later than 7 days in advance. This is to allow time for me to make any graphics needed for the article, any revisions or make any necessary corrections.  We will choose the first community member by rounding up every current active member in a poll. We will release the poll via social media and allow people to vote for our first community member. Staff will be exempt from the polling along with anyone who has previously had a community spotlight. With plans to re-roll community spotlights for all previous members with updated criteria on the opposite week. after the first community member is chosen they will be able to announce the next candidate of their choosing. It could be anyone of staff, honorary member, or current vVv member

    What is your feedback?  I would like to know your ideas, thoughts, questions.  how would you like to see the article written etc.

    I, vVv Syracuse endorse Bliss!
    How much time have you spent with the applicant, in-game or out? 
    Bliss was the one who introduced me to vVv in the first place!! I've played with her in Rocket League and Overwatch for 4 months! What was your first impression of the community member? Did it change at all over time? If so, how?
    Bliss was and always has been a welcoming host to the vVv community. She's also dedicated to her position in the Rocket League staff. What was your favorite moment with them (in-game or out)?
    My favorite moment with Bliss would probably be our first doubles games together. It was fun to get to know her better, and hear her talk about Chase nonstop. Cute romantic story if anyone out there gets the chance to listen to it! What makes this applicant a good fit for vVv Gaming?
    Putting aside the fact that Bliss has been working for vVv longer that I have been a member, she is extraordinarily dedicated to this community.  How could they improve to be a better potential community member?
    Bliss is on every day, and already has at least 5 people who are willing to vouch for her to be a member. I think she has done more than enough to prove herself a worthy member of vVv. Anything else we should know about this applicant? Any skills or talents that no one else knows yet?
    Bliss is a pretty awesome singer when she sings in the background. I like listening to her when we are playing together.  
    (HOPE YOU GET APPROVED BLISS, WOULDN'T BE HERE WITHOUT YOU!!)
