Greetings to all warhaveners, the staff wants to update everyone on the current happenings and future plans which will drive the community forward! A lot of important things happened and will happen, so I urge everyone to take a moment to read everything.

Staff changes:
Most important are the staff changes.
Arlt: Glad you could make it, staff.
Staff: Watch your tone with us, boy. You may be the Community Manager, but we're still your seniors as staff.
Arlt: As if I could forget. Listen, there's something about the staff you should know. Oh no. It's too late. These people have all went infected. They may look fine now, but it's a matter of time before they turn into the inactives.
Staff: What?
Arlt: This entire staff must be purged.
Staff: How can you even consider that? There's got to be some other way.
Arlt: Damn it, Staff. As your future king, I order you to purge this staff.
Staff: You are not my king yet, boy. Nor would I obey that command if you were!
Arlt: Then I must consider this an act of treason.
Staff: Treason? Have you lost your mind, Arlt?
Alrt: Have I? Lords, by my right of succession and sovereignity of my crown, I hereby relieve you from your command and suspend your admins from service.
Harald: Arlt, you can't just...
Arlt: It's done! Those of you who have the will to save this community, follow me. The rest of you... get out of my sight.
Staff: You've just crossed a terrible threshold, Arlt.
Arlt: Harald?
Harald: I'm sorry, Arlt. I can't watch you do this.
As most of the staff has noticed and some of you, that some of the staff members have started becoming less active, either in their admin responsibilities or in general. To counter this and help the head of this community stay on track we've had a long meeting about the future of its leading members. Most of the people that are leaving were planning on doing it in the near future as they've noticed for themselves that they aren't capable of sustaining the will and activness needed to be part of the Staff. And the rest were given precise responsibilities which we will follow in the future which should hopefully help with activity.

@Ske (Purged), our dear Ske has been with us for a very long time and is one of the biggest reasons why WH is even a thing. Sad to see him go, farewell old friend, we'll be waiting for your return.
@TeaCup (Purged), the clans scotsman, he'll still be with us from time to time on TS. But he has a much bigger responsibility than WH as of a few weeks ago. Congratz again dude. :)
@Harald (Purged), we finally let him free, after all the months we kept him captive our favorite norwegian and youtuber is a free bird. You better still come on TS!

Now that we got the sad part out of the way, the responsibilities for each current staff and what it means.
@Hawk (Tech), already was one, but yeah I keep the server/website/teamspeak/bots/discord running and updating them alongside
@Ironside (Roleplay manager, Global mod) which will also continue being the Roleplayer Manager.
@Arlt (Lead Community Manager), main guy that's suppose to see to it that the forums and VOIPs see activity with threads, forum games, tournaments, and to lead our community managers: @RedPandaLT @LordOfDead @ZeroFlotsie @ponasozis @Brad @Julian
@Dragon (Community Voice, we'll make a better name probably in the future), everyone knows him and everyone likes him might as well give him the role he deserves, which will represent the community and voice their concerns for him to pass on to the staff.
@Spampolice (Advisor), always been a part of the community and always will be, but we'd like to release him from responsibility of the staff mantle, and let him be what he always was the voice of (very often very loud) reason.

Transparency:
Opening the #staff-chat on our Discord to our active members, also known as @Loyalists. I think some of the transparency to the things discussed should be given to the active members of our community so we can easier steer the ship to its most wanted waters. You'll be able to view and react, even discuss if need be of the current happenings and see how staff does their jobs. A bit different from Diplos system, we will be giving out the role to the people that the staff deems worthy for their activity or contribution and loyalty to the community.

Forums update:
We are planning on a major overhaul of the main home-page of the forums and adding/updating ratings, trophies, discord integration and the calendar. The calendar will be the central add-on that the home page will spin around as we agreed that future events/forum games are of the most importance to its community.

Twitch/YT:
Introducing the communities Twitch and Youtube channel which will be given to staff and trusted members to post and stream content for everyone. Keep a lookout for the upcoming thread!

Other:
  • Quarterly opinion polls about the current, general issues and community report, starting from this month, thread soon (tm).
  • Monthly Map Making Contest (MMMC, 3100, I just made this up xd the name I mean), as the name suggests monthly map making with well-known map makers as judges. Each month will be different theme, and have more than just your basic terraining event. More info in the upcoming month, look out for @RedPandaLT @Arlt threads
  • Come back of the Grand Tournaments, more prizes and more diverse games! Wait for January.
  • Forum game time standardization, poll will be up soon in Forum Games.

12 Days of Warhaven Xmas Gaming. More info will be posted on 12th of January, keep an eye out. x)

That's all folks! For now, for any questions, suggestions ideas report to @Dragon @Arlt or myself!

The staff... has been purged. That was a bit unexpected, but praise for the best. I actually can't believe Ske and Spam are no longer full fledged staff.

Oh how the tides have changed. Such nostalgia

You buried the Grave Keeper now Arlt that is madness. Rip the previous staff and now on to the questions:
"active members of our community,contribution and loyalty to the community."

Does one need to be on TS to be considered active n what does contribution and loyalty mean, how does one prove himself in that regard?

Well teamspeak is the best way to show activity, but forums/discord also qualify in a lesser extent. Well if he's been with WH for a while, or WH has been his main community in which he participates.
E.g. @Harald has been with us since forever, he's always promoted the community on yt, been active on the site and teamspeak, never changed communities and has been part of the staff which cements his loyalty to the cause. Obviously this is the best case for a loyalist but I hope you understand the basic idea.

How does one apply some people already got the role I assume one has to come to TS or simply sign it here (Like you had to sign for staff n other stuff or?). Cuz I would be interested but I have the biggest issue that I do not play very similiar games to WH(COH,EU4,HOI4,CK and not sure what u guys r playing else.)

We got LoL and Wc3 from time to time. Best way would probably be active on TS, and probably organize forum games if you are really interested in the role, but it comes down to the staffs decision.

Currently the 5 of the Admins you see on Discord: Arlt, ZeroFlotsie, Dragon, Ironside and myself are the highest rank and in 'charge'. But accepting anyone into the staff or any major changes or plans have to be discussed with the whole staff.
