Guest Bartlett Posted November 13, 2017 Share Posted November 13, 2017 Right.... As I can see for myself and hear from current players/admins who can add their name to this if they like, they are all currently saying/worrying about Ahoyworld going under, I'm hearing quite a few similarities in what everyone is saying, so I'm gonna babble on a bit and hope you can make sense of this I will start by pointing out the common problems then add my ideas.... 1, Group a vs group b..... us and them..... this is everyone everywhere. There is bickering within the community, there's bickering between groups a & b of eu3 members which @Minipily has already pointed out. Then there's bickering between moderators i.e. public moderators (group A) vs eu3 Moderators (Group B ) and then you have another group core vs moderators and this is all due to poor communications, AW really does need a good kick up the ass.... 2, Bitching, Backbiting and general Jeremy Kyle show entertainment.... we ALL have the random bitch/rage/rant..... but more care needs to be put into who you are doing it to and how private it actually is (that means everyone)... and for members to find out about Moderators insulting/degrading other members of the community its not private enough for the community to find out which is really not on..... the other thing is bitching with each other on telegram..... really not doing well when @Stanhope and another admin are having it out and a core staff tells you to back off (not sure who started it, but it happened!!!).... assume every post is public!!! 3, sorted by rank Core Staff..... yep you guys..... listen to the god damn team below you as they represent you..... if they pass something up they are doing it for good reason.... if you don't act on it ALEAST get back in touch with them and give them a good explanation on why you cant deal with it, if not you are effectively building barriers creating an us and them scenario. Moderators..... yes you got a big 'M' next to your name and for some of you it makes you think you can be a class 'Muppet' (respectfully ) when it comes to being the rule police.... remember you wasn't always an admin please treat us how you want to be treated...... I'm not sure if @Ryko is going to do/say anything in regards to recent unplanned meetings in TeamSpeak in regards to excessive ban hammering/ kicking over things that you could look a lil deeper into to find out it wasn't actually malicious intent..... Members.... less on the bitching..... if you are then make sure its privately with someone you know well (goes for everyone really) everyone is entitled to get triggered at some point and have a mad rage over jack all (I for 1 can put my hand up and say I have had a rage over jack all, its healthy to get it off your chest but just be careful).... make sure its not heard by everyone else and if it does come out and its made a big deal of then come forward and be the bigger person and explain you were raging over nothing and if you wanna then apologize 4, rules.... we all know they are there to benefit us.... specially when you get people that abuse the system, (putting my hands up here) I myself have abused the system.... I also report what I can abuse to make admins aware ... just like the backpack on chest @Ryko but.... I think the rules need a review, and put them to a vote.... not just admin and core but to the community!!!!! we should have our say. Can you not create a post on rules with a for and against and reasons why???? (this idea is Ramsay's kitchen nightmare.... know your market) we the community/ general eu1 players are the market and we are coming back simply because you are selling good shit!!!! 5, member size slowly dwindling.... yes its a community not a job to everyone but advertising is key ..... nobody advertised eu3 to me I stumbled on ahoy when miss clicking another I&A and I myself being an ARMA scrub asked what the other TS channels were for, nobody pays attention to the eu1 in game advertising me personally cant see the billboard properly as it just appears blocky.... I went on eu1 a week or 2 ago, and I think it may have been @PiranhA that did a private Zeus mission I took part in with a few guys.... trying to make sure the people in my Zeus squad had mics.... I also did drop the hint and explain what I see on eu3 to try and entice people to at least have a look at it. maybe if we the eu3 players did that more along with Spartans assisting could help a lot by winning the public over into coming onto eu3.... also there was a suggestion made by I think @GhostDragon, about doing eu1 game nights and someone else about the carrot and the stick.... my thoughts on that are rather than throw money at it use what arma gave us ..... we all know that it would be great to be torch or vortex on eu3 .... why not on eu1 on game nights but lock it to members as in Zeus/Spartan only gives assets to members exclusively to the eu3 members, lets face it if I joined a new vanilla server .... saw it was a game night but there was only certain people getting this stuff id think to myself .... how do I get my hands on that.... spark the question.... drop links ..... get them talking then get them joining in..... within a few weeks we would have tons of new eu3 players that get the 'perks' on eu1 game nights, (win win scenario) in order to boost the communities population we gotta advertise it and for that you need to hit the right market (yes I know its a community but it still applies) best way of advertising is with the 'customers' that you have (eu1/2) I think the most effective way would be word of mouth.... it always has been.... and an increase in members means a possibility in increase in donators which benefits AW's survival financially.... that's just my thought and feedback is welcome (+memes on topic if they are funny ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
