<ZAM> Ultros FC Meeting 2 - NotesFollow

Ok so xivapp, which I was using to collect my chat log for me during the meeting, decided that it only REALLY needed to keep the last 10 minutes of whatever was being said. Unfortunately the meeting lasted considerably longer than that, and so my log of that part is gone.

Here are the salient details:

Officers will be promoted on a trial basis, 16 officers to start on that trial basis.

Members currently at "officer" status will not lose any privileges they currently have, but their rank will be reduced to Member to avoid confusion. New members will be added at an Initiate rank for 2-4 weeks with limited privileges.

Three new linkshells will be set up: Endgame, PvP, Crafting. At least one officer will be in charge of each linkshell, remaining officers will focus on the FC as a whole

You can be a member of any or all the linkshells, but keep in mind the 128-player limit. If a linkshell is full, new players will be put on a waiting list and inactive players will be removed monthly. Only join linkshells you need to join.

We agreed that private forums are going to be a good idea, members and officers will start investigating possibilities for forum hosting. Feel free to present ideas along those lines.

Vent will go ahead and stay as it is, we have a 100-slot server provided by Apostle. Vent will be required or not for endgame activity according to the individual group's decision. We expect to see groups requiring it and groups not requiring it.

Please let me know if I missed anything. I was counting on this thing to log the chat as well as it did last time, and it failed miserably at doing that. Next time I'll just take notes the old fashioned way (unfortunately the raw XIV chat logs are stored in XML and heavily formatted. I don't really have the time to write something to read them just this second).

Oh and here's the probationary officer list (arranged alphabetically):
  • Amarok Goodfellow
  • Bartel Hayward
  • Boj Bgood
  • Callinon Soulforge
  • Cilia Maroth
  • Chewe Dankles
  • Dare Knight
  • Duma Katosuki
  • Ghost Orchid
  • Lance Fancysauce
  • Master Shake
  • Nghthawk Evenfall
  • Pryssant Novio
  • Raxion Gunsoul
  • Rhaya Mewlirah
  • Ronyn Olorin
  • Valefor Almasy

Emily and I had been wondering about the staggering number of officers in the FC; this new method makes a lot more sense!

Thanks for posting this Cal. Also, just to clarify as there has been some confusion in FC chat, the linkshells that are created (including the endgame linkshell) will NOT bs capping members at a certain point or be exclusionary. Anyone who is interested in them will be able to join as many as they like, provided there is space in them and they meet the requirements (ie, pvp shell you must have a DoW/DoL at minimum PvP level, endgame shell you must have a DoW/DoM at 50, etc.). With the number of members we have, there will most likely be multiple groups running at different times, on different days, or just different instances to accomodate everyone. We will work out more details on this situation once we are actually prepared and able to tackle the content.

Yeah sorry if that was confusing, when I mentioned the member limit above, I was referring only to the hard limit of 128 players in a linkshell.

I seriously wrote all that up in about ten minutes after trying for half an hour to salvage some kind of chat log from the smoldering remains I had left.

No worries, the clarification wasn't in response to you, it was some things I saw posted in FC chat about people thinking that once we hit a certain number of players, we wouldn't accept any more for endgame, which is just not correct.

Since it was mentioned in the meeting, I have taken it upon myself (just out of curiosity about what was out there for free) to make a (hopefully not stepping out to far out of bounds on this) FC page and Forum. It is still in the begining stages and I am still playing around with the site but it appears to have everything that we were talking about needing.

Here is the Link

I've never heard of that host, but yeah.. this looks like a good place to start.

The two big things for a website like this are:
- Easily updated front page news
- Customizable forums

Great job! I really like it. (Something tells me we'll still be posting on ZAM for a lot of stuff.)

Seems pretty legit. It seems it'd do the job, and the calendar is a nice touch for planning and what-not. Thank you for that.

Also, thanks again to Callinon for the notes once again. A refresher is always a good thing.

I'll admit to not knowing pretty much anyone on here personally outside of witty/stupid banter in the chat, but I'm willing to give anyone a chance to set the tone, so giving everyone nominated as an Officer an equal opportunity to "prove their metal" is just fine with me. The segregation of chats via linkshell was pretty much a given (keeps like events easily viewable), and further dividing up the membership gives the FC a bit more structure. Feels a little more "official", y'know?

Oh, and one final thank you to Bartel for starting this all up, and sticking with it while real life is trying to pull aggro like a fiend (and taking half of my money every time I get some)... Smiley: boozing
