I hope I'm not the only PR/Sub Leader who is concerned about the backlash with his change. I'm worried it will get to the point where it interferes with my team and our productivity. I will be making a post later in our discord regarding these changes and work with you all the way through. I promise you I will be fully transparent with what I have planned and what my thoughts are on this. (This is toward our PR/Media Team members 💗)
Since Joel can't make a post till later, I will say what I have planned for Media Team in PR moving forward:
Applications are going to be done in a timely manner. (~Month) A test will be given similar to a project that Media Team has done or is currently working on. With of course a few minor changes like text, what it's about, etc. This is so that we can actually assess what their capabilities are with requests that are similar to what they have done in a test. (Tests that are similar to current requests will also be given to Video Editors, Writers, and Streamers, but directed toward their specific division!) I found it quite terrible that applications took way to long to process (+3 months) and they got tests that were pretty lengthy/tedious to what we currently got requested. (Also, we really need more members, so we can't be too picky!) Hence why I'm making this change!
Activity will be shot up moving forward. Considering that I'm assigning the teams requests that I wanted to be done for a while. (New GFX on forums, trailer videos for servers, streaming GFL servers, etc) FYI, if you have a suggestion for a specific server to have a special trailer for it, PM me! I'll listen to your comments. *cough* If someone doesn't use periods in their message toward me I will ignore it *looks are rapperdan* *cough*
Behavior: This isn't a terrible issue as of recently (I myself am guilty of being a bad boy), but moving forward, malicious behavior from a Media Team member won't be tolerated! Period.
Transparency. I know I already stated this earlier in my post, but I seriously hate it when someone hides the "full truth" from me. I'm sure my members feel the same, so from now on I'll be transparent as possible with my members. This was an issue before, where I/others couldn't be fully transparent with changes previously. But of course, this will change!
Feedback will be taken seriously if given to me/Media Team. If you have something to say that is constructive or a valid suggestion toward me or the media team as a whole, PM me! Banter/"Omg you are inactive you guys are shit!" will be ignored. I am well aware of our current activity!
I hope my post helps you decide on your opinion as to me and what I have planned in the future of Media Team. Just because you are not fond of the current changes doesn't mean you shouldn't give the leaders a chance to prove to you that we mean well and actually will do stuff. 💗
Thanks for reading!
