    In case anyone was wondering what the secret was, this is usually how it goes.

    So now that I have a good moment to type, I figured I’d type this all out. Some of this may be new and some of it may not. Just giving a small portion of my experience. It seems everyone has their own opinion on how aspects of Overdosed works. What’s expected of you per rank? How does voting work? Posting relevant evaluations, all that good stuff. Truth is the system Overdosed uses today was pulled from the DoD (Department of Defense). Obviously it’s been tweaked a little to suit a gaming community. So here’s a breakdown of each area. -Billet Assignments So for those of you that don’t know what a billet is. A billet is a position assigned to a specific person to perform. Different organizations have their own term for it, the most common term though is billet which has also been used in reference to lodging (for those who were about to state it in a reply). Billet assignments are made by mid-grade officers (Captains and higher). The higher the billet (i.e. division leader) will be made by people of higher grades. In our case, division leaders are appointed by our senior flag staff (4 star’s and 5 star generals). Even though there’s a vote between the generals to decide what to do, it’s usually the 4 star’s or the 5 stars that enact the process after decisions are made. -Billet Tasks For every billet/position that a convening authority can impose, the person in question for said billet is given a list of assignments. Typically it is broken down by daily tasks, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual. Billet tasks are almost never the same for each person, I’m sure you all have figured that out by now. This is one aspect that Overdosed does a little differently than what I’ve noticed, but this is how the process statistically functions best as per the studies performed by the SECDEF’s (Secretary of Defense) staff. Once a person has been selected for a billet, the conveining authority drafts up an appointment letter that says to the person “This is exactly what I expect you will do in this billet”, however tasks are not limited to what’s stated, the appointment letter only tells you the minimum requirements. Appointment letters are typically followed by an acceptance letter. The reason for this is to have black and white evidence that shows that the person was properly counseled on what he or she needs to do to maintain the billet. Otherwise, Badboi could select Priceless to be the Overdosed Divisions Coordinator and explain it to him vocally. But then when Priceless doesn’t perform and Badboi wants to demote him down, Priceless can basically win that battle hands down because there’s no real proof that he was given any sort of guidance on how to perform his duties. From what I’ve seen in the past, might be different now, people are either just kind of expected to know what to do already or they’re just vocally told, which leads to the he said she said arguments. -What should I do to get ahead? Act above your rank. Most people that advance in most places don’t stick to their lane. If all you do is just what you’re expected to do, promoting authorities are going to look at you and say “this is an effective person in this area”. That’s not the statement you want to hear. You want promoting authorities to say that you are an incredible asset that can be counted on to accomplish any task, people that stick in their own lanes don’t really experience this too much. If you’re a little old 1st Lieutenant trying to work your way up, for whatever your reason is, do the work expected of a 2nd LT or a Captain. Someone’s always watching and they’ll notice, and if you keep it up you’ll be going up the ladder in no time. -Evaluation System (aka the PES) The evaluation system used in OD is a spin-off of the PES, Performance Evaluation System. These should be done in 6 month intervals or more. Six months is a typical standard; that gives the person plenty of time to actually things done. Get their own processes/policies into effect and see how they work, and then gives them time to evaluate them and make any adjustments needed. Some jobs are less demanding than others, so anything less than 6 months can make the person seem ineffective/unproductive in their position which could lead to them being replaced. The way the evaluations should be dressed up are basically like this -Who you are (Name, rank, billet title) -Billet Tasks -Summary of Billet Accomplishments (every bullet you have for your billet task should have a mirror response) -Summary of Miscellaneous Accomplishments People reading/processing your eval should look over your eval and see if your billet tasks are being accomplished, then review your other accomplishments. They should also take into consideration how well you communicate with others, because communication is key to success. If you can’t talk to people without pissing off half the group, it’s an issue that needs to be addressed. Start looking to see if the person is tactful, diligent, effective, applies sound judgment, sets the standard, takes care of their subordinates, etc. It’s not about whether or not you like them as a person. Dave and Terra might submit their evaluations at the same time. But even if I don’t like Dave but I do like Terra, if Dave is up to par on what someone of his rank needs to be doing and Terra isn’t, then I’m expected to set my differences aside and give a fair review that accurately reflects each individual’s work. Key traits that you’ll need to be successful -Communication: The higher up you go in any organization, you’ll have to deal with internal politics, sometimes external ones as well. Politics is life, if you don’t like dealing with politics then you don’t need to be promoted because you’ll be expected to deal with them appropriately. The only thing that will change is the content of what’s going on, but in the end, it’s all politics. You have to be able to talk clearly, say what you need to say in a way that it can be correctly understood. -Develop Networking Skills: Making friends with all sorts of different people gives you a strategic advantage. You might be terrible at web site work, but you know your friend Haji Bob does amazing web work and might be able to help you out. A lot of times, success doesn’t depend on what you know but who you know. -Mission Oriented Mindset: Work to complete the job, not to be done with work. Anyone can complete the work just to have it complete, doesn’t mean it’ll be effective. Working to complete the job implies that you worked to say “mission accomplished”. Makes you more dependable, reliable, and makes you more efficient. It’s all about that positive mindset. -Adaptability: Be willing to change your methods to suit the needs of the moment. This applies to everything. One process may work a certain way before but maybe with the time table and resources you have, you might have to change it up. Take things that you like that you've seen from others and add it to your own methods. How you handle one person might not be the way to handle this other person. You need to be able to go from task to task and adapt to get results. -Judgment: Exercise sound decision making abilities. Recognize the situation, evaluate the job that needs to be done, analyze what your options are, do a risk assessment, make a decision, and implement it. -Be a good listener: Listen to the input given by the people around you. Take in the good input as well as the criticism. In all honesty, this trait pretty much explains itself. You need to be willing to listen to others in order to expect others to listen to you. -Tact: Come at people correctly. Show respect and people will take you seriously. Might be your friend, but if they’re your boss and it’s time to do some work, it’s time to get professional and get things done. -Game with your ALL of your members: Don’t just stick to the tight click of 12 regular people that you typically game with. If you just recruited 8 other people over the last 6 days, actively engage with them and make them feel like they’re wanted. People are more likely to respond if you make them feel valued/wanted. There will always be those that will leave, but at least you put the effort in. I think I’ll start to wrap it up, because I’m typing this out in word before I post it and right now the page count is up to 3. These are just small bits of leadership tools and tips that people use all the time. Everything listed above can be applied to Overdosed. With this being a gaming community, I think an important thing you need to keep in mind is to be a fun person to game with. Don’t be Elitist Joe who puts down people who aren’t very good at the game. Keep in mind everything I just typed is a very small synapse, since communties like OD and DL like to use modified systems that I'm used to, figured I'd offer up a thing or two. If anyone ever has any questions, feel free to ask, and if I don't know the answer I'll go and find the answer.

    I finished school this month and have signed a contract with a mobile game development company to work as a CSR Manager on salary, with a starting salary of $35,000 a year. I've been working for the company during my past year of school here on an hourly wage, and I was originally slated to have a performance review come December, but they've been so impressed with my performance that they held the review now instead and are switching me over to a salary-based contract starting September 1st. CSR is the role responsible for answering and resolving the issues of players who are playing the game, and working with the tech department and the development team to identify the common problems of the game and provide information on what improvements or changes are necessary. As the Manager I'll be directing a team of 4 initially, which will grow as needed depending on the popularity of the game and the number of players that play it. Full responsibility of the CSR department will be in my care, as long as the department fulfills its role well I have the freedom to run it however I see fit, there is no supervisor I need to answer to. I suppose at this point in their lives this is when most members and Commanders tend to phase out of the Clan life and focus on their budding new careers. But in my case actually the opposite will happen. My job is handled entirely by remote, including most of the conference meetings the development team holds, I can do all the work from my home computer even while interacting with OD at the same time. Additionally I can rearrange my work hours during the day however I like, I can work 4 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening, split them up into 2 hour segments each if I want, even work in the middle of the night if I choose. That maximum flexibility, and being done with school now, means my availability for OD will be more, not less, at least at this period of time. So, feeling pretty good lately.

    I always have connection issues with DIscord. Discord also takes far too long to launch, the sound quality is awful. I avoid Discord whenever possible. I just don't see the appeal of Discord at all and IMO I feel like people like and use Discord just because others use it.

    A new rule was established by the Generals today in regards to name changes, and has been added to the Clan section of the Guide to Everything, along with a new sub-section called "Additional Rules of Note" (as this particular rule didn't fit under any other categories). This rule actually reflects the common practice of name changes in OD over the course of previous years, it was only in this past year that a measure of leniency has been allowed for name changes. Given the increasing number of members requesting name changes lately, and the added level of confusion that it has been creating, the Generals have decided to formally instate the old restrictions of name changes as a rule of the Clan, starting today.

    We all have to adapt a little bit of our habits when interacting with the community as a whole. I grew up in a world of stupid people and became quite accustomed to calling people stupid, and yet I'm able to manage a remarkably amazing level of restraint here in the Clan when interacting on a public level because I know that not everyone is going to appreciate some of my more eccentric habits. The rules of our Clan are not built according to a person's individual preferences or personal childhoods, they were created as the minimum conduct required by all people in order to achieve a state of co-existence no matter what their origins. So, on the matter of the word "nigga" specifically, do I find the word offensive? No. Am I going to forbid its use on the Teamspeak when I hear people use it? Yes. Not because I have any particular issue with the word itself, but rather because I know people are going to have problems differentiating that word from its racial predecessor. They sound the same, they are used in the same context, and someone is gonna hear it and either think racial terms are OK to use in this community and start adding it to all of their conversations, or they are going to get offended by it just the same and complain to Administration about it. I'm not... and seriously I cannot emphasize this last part enough... I am NOT going to lose 30 minutes of my life in a private conversation with someone trying to explain how it's okay that this person said what they said because they used the word "nigga", not "nigger" and what the difference between the two are. Seriously, I'm not doing that. So I'm regulating the use of both words equally. If that means a few people have to let go of their old habits a little in order to be here, then so be it.

    I know I've only recently joined OD (with this name) and I haven't played with everyone in the ODLoL division... but some people need to seriously control their rage/anger. It is NOT OKAY to leave games... PERIOD. I used to play in some of the other OD divisions and I don't remember anyone ever ragequitting games... I'm not going to name any names since that is against the rules but still... please don't leave games. It really messes up our experience of the game. It also gives OD a bad reputation when someone spams "clan OD!" in the beginning of the game and just leaves because they are doing badly... Calm down on the BM'ing too... I don't get why I can't use enter to format this damn post!

    Actually, the point of me posting this in the water cooler is that you can respond/enjoy my post however you like. Dont QQ to me because you don't like the quality of the content of my posts. Go play runescape or something. OK, you win, I'm a troll, and you're a wonderful poster, an asset to the clan, you contribute 1000x the value that I do to this forum, and you are every bit the superb, brilliant, irresistable-to-women wonderboy that you make yourself out to be. If we met up in person you'd be doing me a kindness by beating the crap out of me and urinating on me in front of your half-dozen Penthouse Pet girlfriends. I concede.

    Starcraft is an amazing game that has many facets of play, I am aware that it has changed a lot since launch but at it's core it remains the same. If we only cater to laddering players it will be hard to grow and build a community. My current plans are to use a few different methods to gain people and build community. First and foremost starcraft is at heart a comparative game and should reflect that in any community based around it. Building a community based on self betterment and individual growth is the main goal, to do this we will organize viewing parties for GSL and WCS as well as helping lower rank players learn with replay analysis and in clan 1v1s. Second, starcraft is a social game with more than just ladder play. Arcade and co-op are a large portion of starcrafts community. Having players dedicated to arcade and co-op will help us grow our clan to be a more eclectic community, especially with competitive arcade games such as marine arena and dessert strike. Lastly, I am going to be working on recruiting and building events for everyone in the clan but will be going fairly blindly without any input from others and basically will build what I want to see in a clan for now. Being active in the forums about starcraft will be the best way to have an impact in the community as well as to show your love for the wonderful game that has made so many passionate gamers fall in love. Lots of love for you all, Opal(OD)

    Thank you R.ag, will refrain from requesting your eval for another 3 months. ;)

    Yeah, we rejected R.agnarok for the same reason. He was equally hurt. It was a job centered around speaking your mind, disagreeing with others, and being vocal about your points. You were considered overqualified.

    I'm sorry. I know to some of you that this statement may not have any meaning. Also to clarify this is not a resignation but an apology since there's alot of mixed feelings about me out there. I want to point out I try my hardest to fit in and act normal for everyone. Sometimes I slip and it can be hard. So I'm sorry for not being stronger and able to maintain my composure. I also wanted to point that nobody told me to make an apology but I felt the need too. Since I felt I have wronged many people in the clan. I just wanted to come out an apologize for the actions I have done, in the past and leading up to the events now. I may have been rude to some of you to which I am sorry, I could not confront you like a proper person. I have always been bad in social settings and talking to people normally. I do not have the social constructs that people have but trust me I want to fit in and I want to be noticed by my peers. Most of the time I assume individuals don't want to be my friend which cause me to shrug them off. So I am sorry for anyone I came off on the wrong foot or said something to harsh. I know you may not forgive me but don't let me be the reason why you can't enjoy your time. I'm sorry for my actions. I was always getting into trouble and picking fights. Which if you look at me now it somewhat hasn't changed, sadly. If you have known me, you know playing League with me can be scary with my quick nature of switching from happy to rude, in a matter of seconds due to my competitive nature. I'm sorry for this, I am working on keeping it under control. That's why when I play League, you may have noticed I get super quiet when playing. 1 because I'm super focusing and 2 because I know if I say anything it might lead to bad mannered behavior. Sorry for making people leave our division because of me. I know I have a bad habit of saying things that come to mind or talking way to quickly. Not to mention I can be very impulsive from time to time. Sorry Chrishodge for letting you down as a leader and sorry for the people who had to sit and listen to us argue in WoW division. I really wish you guys can come back because Triny is an amazing leader and was everything I was not. Sorry that I could be a better leader in front of others. I wish I could change my behavioral problems with a switch of a button. I really do wish I could be a normal person but I know that this is what I have to cope with for rest of my life. So thank you for those being patience with me. Lastly to which everyone can agree with, sorry that I am hypersensitive. I get very passionate about the things I love and when I see something I love getting attacked. I just can't stop myself from getting really heated and uspet. I have always had this sensitivity problem and was never able to take bad news with a grain of salt. If I knew how to get a better grip of my sensitivity problems, it would make life so much easier. I probably won't have any of the mood issues I listed above. I always remind myself constantly when I am getting sad or upset is this "something I should be getting really upset over" before I continue on with the conversation but even that isn't enough sometimes. I constantly I have to control my temper or try to keep myself from breaking down in tears. I'm sorry about the people who have had to listen to me cry or fuss over things. I really wish I didn't, but it just happens, even if I try to stop myself. I'm sorry that this is long but I just thought I post of aplogy for those who I have wrong or said something rude. Sorry (People I want to apologize to and to whom this topic is dedicated to) Badboi Chrishodge Bahafresh Arineth Triny Xayj Terra Onee Leppy Tachikoma Sinnypie mmrdudedude Bones Truechill Redvaine AnkleC Azhriel Monaday Eric Nappycat Lastly sorry for the Diablo people who came over wanting to try our game then I scared them away. Sorry for anyone else I have wronged, with my improper behavior to which that I did not list above. Thank you for taking the time to read this. ~Lena

    Your problem isn't that you aren't "normal". We're all different, some of us very extremely different from each other. In the higher ranks, our differences are some of our greatest strengths as a team, our individual qualities bring up the strengths and perspectives that others would fall short in. Of course, there are always things we could do better, but that success doesn't come from trying to change our individual traits, not really. It comes from recognizing our own flaws, the areas we aren't very good in, and figuring out a way to make things work, and be an asset, despite those flaws. Focusing on our strengths, and avoiding situations we know we don't handle well. Maybe over a long period of time our bad qualities will diminish somewhat and we'll be better human beings overall, but it's just like you said, you can't flip a switch and suddenly be different, it's something that happens gradually. So, in the meantime, we gotta figure out how to fit into the big picture as the kind of person we are. You are an emotionally sensitive person, Lena. You're probably going to be an emotionally sensitive person for most of your life, it's just the way you are. If your efforts are focused on trying to "not be sensitive" then your efforts will never work, you can't be someone you're not, trying to do so will fail and you'll probably start to hate yourself for it because you'll think you should be something that you can't be. Which seems like the path you've gone down. You *are* sensitive, you can't change that. What you can do is understand what this means for you. What does being sensitive allow you to do well, and what does it mean you can't do so well. I feel like just listing off good points, while helpful, might seem hollow in and of themselves, so let's start by looking at the opposite side for a moment. It may shock the Clan to learn that I'm not an emotionally sensitive person. A lot of those traits that you have that you *think* are bad, I don't have. But not having them has also created problems for me as well. It is harder for me to empathize with others, especially on an emotional level. This is largely what has led to situations of people finding me unapproachable, or intimidating, which are issues that have plagued me pretty much since I first joined OD. To people who don't know me, my actions can seem callous and indifferent, sometimes even arrogant. I can be a good leader, because I can be objective and assertive. But I can't always be a good friend, because I'm not empathetic, and I don't establish those kinds of bonding connections with people as well. You don't have those problems. You have different problems. You are capable of being empathetic with others, and connecting with them, and being supportive, and a good friend, and an overall bright ray of sunshine to an otherwise blasé environment. You may not have done so recently, but that's because you've been so focused on erasing your qualities rather than making use of them. Emotional people can often be difficult if they try and deal with problems while in an emotional state, but those same emotional states can also make them inspiring in situations that play to their emotional strengths. So, knowing what your emotional empathy is good for now, you need to understand what it is not good for. You have to come to understand about yourself that when your emotional state reaches above a certain level, you are not capable of assessing a situation or a problem properly anymore, and you're not able to make effective decisions while in that state. This means you need to learn to recognize when you are above that point, and when you are you need to either excuse yourself from a situation until you calm down some, and revisit it again later, or allow someone else to handle the situation in your stead. You'll always have that compulsion to speak up when you think something is unfair, but you can control the way in which you do it, keeping it to private messages and conversations rather than public outbursts. If you can, get in the habit of getting a second opinion from someone whom you trust. You can better tell if your emotional state is affecting your ability to judge something based on whether this individual feels the same way about it or not, and that can help you anchor yourself from acting impulsively, so long as you trust that person enough to believe them if they tell you that you might be overreacting. In this sense, you're in the opposite situation that I am. You can be a good friend, because you have that empathetic trait that can help you make connections with people. But you can't always be a good leader, because once you hit a certain state you can't be objective anymore. A lot of emotionally temperamental people run into the same problem, and we certainly have a few of those in the Clan as well. But it doesn't mean you can't fit into the community. We're all pieces to one big jigsaw puzzle, and a lot of us are still trying to find the place in which we perfectly fit. Which can be a long, and sometimes vexing process. But the real frustration, your real frustration, comes from trying to force your jigsaw piece into the spots it doesn't fit, and thinking there is something wrong with the way you are when it doesn't work, when really you just haven't found the spot you fit best in yet.

    It's very unlikely that someone would come to our forums and just randomly choose someone to stick up for (especially when it's pretty obvious that you/he was in the wrong) but let's review what you have to say about AOL. First let me point out: Recruited: 10-22-2002 Disabled: 10-29-2002 Brigadier General Terra(OD) re-enabled Private First Class AOL(OD) for We agreed in the last admin meeting to reinstate his age-old OD account for him to use. on Sat Jul 25, 2015 2:54 AM General Badboi(OD) disabled Sergeant Major AOL(OD) for You showed your true colors, we do not welcome you in this clan. on Mon Nov 02, 2015 4:00 PM So he was here for just over 3 months in mid-late 2015. Okay, let's get back to what you have to say: I'm going to color your post and we will talk about every point you brought up as a point of interest. Really? What did he do that was ripped and stolen? Here is a news letter from 2004 (note this is the 5th one of this rendition): Here is a news letter of my own in 2012: Alright, what's next? The community meeting "These were all your projects." So by all you mean two? Well let's take a look at that. Here is a post in May of 2014 where we organized a community meeting: Next? Facebook and twitter were your/his idea? OD has attempted social media as far back as 2006: Here is a Twitter account that was opened up in 2012 for Overdosed: https://twitter.com/clanoverdosed Here is a post in 2010 where Truechill(OD) created a facebook group for Clan overdosed: These ideas were shamelessly stolen from you/him? Can you provide proof that they were stolen from you/him? At best you can argue that they were re-visted by you/him, there really is nothing that you/him should be upset about. None of these things were impacted by what was brought up. Again, what was brought up was legitimate but nothing was stolen. Nobody took your/his idea and ran with it and claimed some sort of achievement because of it. "General Badboi(OD) created Heroes of the Storm Squad with Chief Warrant Officer CWO2 Manofwar(OD) as the commanding officer on Sun Jun 28, 2015 10:19 PM." He/you did not create this squad, you/he inherited it, just like the person did after you/he was taken out to the field. Can this be elaborated on how it was stolen? That's like person A getting fired from a job and person B takes over and then accusing person B of stealing the desk. If someone fails at a job, they don't say his job was stolen, they say he lost said job.

    Same as respect, votes are earned not given. The process of being put up for promotion and then getting voted up or down by your peers are earned, not given. No one, no matter what rank they are, is entitled to votes. Some people, wether it's the person up for promotion or a friend of said person, need to understand that votes should be given without asking or begging or steamrolling the voters. I believe strongly in voting, wether positively or negatively, and I believe that everyone should speak their mind. However, members shouldn't try to steamroll or bully others into voting for specific members. When I cast my vote on a promotion, no matter the rank of the member I am voting for, I always look at my interactions with said member. If I haven't played or interacted with the member, I'm less likely to cast my vote. I look at what they have done since the last time they were promoted, how active they are. I dislike putting the generic three reasons (active ingame, active on TS, and keeps dsl low). These are not bad reasons but I feel that the more I interact with other members, the more I learn and observe what they bring to our community. The more I observe and learn, the more in-depth my votes become. I feel that members should not try to steamroll or bully other members into voting up or down members who are up for promotions, let the persons actions speak for themselves instead of looking for votes. I'm sure people will have questions or comments and I will respond to them as best I can. - ThyrstOD
