    The difference between this and your work is that we are volunteers who does this AFTER managing at work while it would be fantastic to meet every member ( ive met most on ts ) its not practical to expect us with the average of a few hours a day to spend hours talking to strangers who wont approach us to begin with. This is a gaming clan we game admin duties are something we diced to do to improve the clan. You named a few higher ranks and while you may not remember me ive played a few hours with you myself. In fact i see commanders and generals playing with new people on a daily basis maybe your time online conflicts or you just arnt paying attention but there's time even i get put on the back burner when one of our higher ranks is playing with someone new. Award wise yes they are a popularity contest its for fun if you would like to win hop on Ts and socialize more often and you will have a bigger chance to win most of the people who vote are on ts as well. We dont push people to be in community unfortunately community is a grey area and yes they may be overlooked from time to time but anyone can nominate people for these award and as for ranks no one is bound by division from putting someone up they just need to show that they meet the requirements or be active once again on TS or DISCORD or ingame with people and they generally will be promoted as well For me and some you ruined 7 days with the use of the Admin controls and extra mods. We played vanilla mostly with minimal mods thats what we liked its never been a game with division potential its basically minecraft. We played it to dodge bordom its a fun game for most until they complete a base. 7 days isnt exactly the greatest game to begin with the bugs alone make it infuriating which is why again majority of us in divisions would never commit to it. I think its shallow thinking to say people are stuck on those games. I play many games with people from d2 and they willingly try new games so.... Overall if you want to game i would suggest being on Ts and find people that want to play a game with you. No one regardless of rank is going to just decide "i want to play with that attrayas guy" Effort is required thats how friendships are made and thats how you create a group of people to play with no one is obligated to play with someone but putting effort in and finding the right people will provide a good experience.

    I think that posts like this (which has become a trend of yours lately) is why your support continues to fall. On top of that, as Hari mentioned, you attack too often which means that you don't always take the time needed to understand various situations or what is trying to be said (point being a member msg'ing leadership with an issue and your reaction not being very officer-like in ts - can elaborate more via pm if interested). I've seen it multiple times since joining the clan among various individuals, but it seems as you have progressed, you've become obsessed with being flashy for others to get to the next rank instead of looking through the eyes of others and evaluating how you might look to different members. Do you have promise as an officer? Absolutely. You have done a lot for the community that can back that up. However, your shortcomings (don't take this word the wrong way, we all have them) are just a thick fog to your sights set on General. The community is not about progressing in rank as fast as possible, it is about helping others (lower ranks especially), being around people that allow you to enjoy your time spent here, and of course enjoying the games that brought you here in the first place. If that leads to promotions, Great! If not, it's not the end of the world and your time will come eventually. Taking shots at other members and leadership won't help anything. If there are issues you see that really should be addressed, then take proper routes to bring it up. Contact members above you and they will bring it up or address it themselves, or save it for community / admin meetings and discuss it there. Additionally, you have to know when to play officer and when to play friend. You have to know where to draw the line and be able to partake in both sides. One last thing. As a member above enlisted, you should remember that we are not here to please anybody above us, but to instead be there for the ones below us. We have a certain responsibility to set an example for them and demonstrate how a member of a long lasting good mannered clan should act. If you see something wrong then you should without a doubt bring up your concerns. I hope that you can learn from all of these comments (there's a lot.. o.o) and grow from this whole ordeal. If you decide to stay the input could be invaluable, if not then I hope that you still learn from it and best of luck to you in your future endeavors. fin 🤐

    So, there's been a bit of an indication lately that some people have had some questions about the Clan, or the activities of people helping to run the Clan, and for a short while some of these questions surfaced a bit in some of the more passionate circumstances lately. Unfortunately the topics they were brought up in were a bit too embroiled in tension that it made productive discussion a little difficult. But I still want people to have that opportunity to ask us things if there is genuinely some stuff they want to know, and I'd rather people didn't feel like they had to wait until their resignation topics before finally asking about them. As the administrators of the community we do actually try to be open about our actions and our reasons, and I want people to feel like they can come to us and ask us anything if there are things they want to know. And I think that kind of open communication is also very important so that things don't lead to awful misunderstandings or misconceptions, which I think has led to some of the recent misgivings that have been expressed. So this topic is your chance to clear the air. Anyone and everyone, doesn't matter your rank. If you want to know what kind of changes have taken place in the Clan the last while, you can ask. If you want to know what kinds of things I've been doing lately, you can ask. I'll answer all questions as best I can, and I've no doubt all of our other Generals will add in the answers they can provide as well for any questions they can relate to. And as long as the questions are asked honestly and with appropriate civility then no one will ever be reprimanded for asking a question, in fact I would applaud anyone who took the initiative to ask and learn about the things they have doubts about. Hopefully this topic can provide that chance, and can continue to be available for people to ask whatever they want, whenever they want.

    Just for clarification, there are 2 words that have been banned from use in the OD community: the "N" word, and "F" word that means bundle of sticks. After reviewing this topic, I have come to the conclusion that the word "midget" in @SuNSeT's post was not referring to any OD member, but an actor. This was not, in my opinion, intended as a derogatory term in the sentence, but an impression that in the medieval times differently abled people were treated like trash, as opposed to today's world. This is NOT bad Mannerism. What IS BM, however, is name calling, which both @SuNSeT , @GhostDog(OD), and @TypeReaL(OD) are guilty of here. Consider all of you warned. If you guys want to gave a debate, then that's fine, but focus on the topic instead of attacking each other. If the bm starts happening again, bans shall start being issued.

    Hey guys, I have been monitoring this thread for a couple of days now and reading into what everyone is saying and one thing that really bothers me that I would to talk about is the lack of communication, especially for us who do not have a main game so to speak. To give some context on how I feel the way I do, I need you to understand that in real life I am a supervisor with 62 employees currently that I directly manage on a daily basis. I make an effort to meet and get to know each and every employee as they are hired on to ensure I create that relationship early on and to ensure that they know that I am approachable for any of there needs. For me the burden of responsibility lays at my feet for the initial meet and greet, not theirs. As the boss I see it is my duty to engage them first. By doing this I have discovered talent I would have never known about if I had just walked past these folks versus being an engaging supervisor. I have been in this clan for over a year now and have not had one real conversation with a commander, briefly spoken with sassy and pops on a few occasions and gamed with DBZ in 7 days to die for abit. Other than those 3 leaders I have no clue what the others do, who they are, what they are into game wise, etc etc...I feel it is vital that leadership take the time to get to know there members and not say it works both ways, because lots of folks feel intimidated speaking with leadership, no matter the platform. My interest in this clan has been waning for awhile now and seeing recent events unfold has not helped my current stance. I would very much love to see a culture shift in this clan for the better but it has to start at the top. Another thing that bugs me is the popularity contest. The recent clan awards to me are useless for someone like myself as no one plays the game that I main so ofc I have no chance in hell of winning. Not a big deal for me but there are folks out there that would like to be recognized for there contributions. I have been hosting a 7 days to die server for months and as far as i know not a single member has ever joined. I would argue not a sole in this clan has more knowledge than myself not only in the main game that I play but other games as well. My knowledge goes beyond the game play and into the guts of the code itself. I also develop for eqemulator.net, which is an open source everquest emulation project. Another popularity contest are ranks. People who have been in the clan less time than myself and quite frankly, have contributed less are given ranks left and right. But since i don't play d2 or poe or BDO I am overlooked. Again, its not just about myself but I assure you, if you dig into the folks tagged as community members they are being overlooked as well. I feel like I speak for a small minority who are probably in the same place I am and just do there own thing at this point. So yea I am a little bitter as of now. It seems no matter what I do to try to draw interest in 7d2d it doesn't matter. Seems everyone is still stuck on a 20 year old game and not wiling to branch out and try something fresh. It is beginning to feel pointless to even be here as the entire point was to have people to game with and now even that is gone. I don't post much here as it seems to not really matter, so I am hoping someone reads this and really looks into ways for this clan to be more involved with the community as a whole and not just focused on a couple of branches of the clan. If the clan continues as it is and no real effort for some change is realized than I will most likely resign in the near future. I just feel it is pointless to be in a community of gamers and never have a chance to game with them.

    I have never had an issue with talking about problems to commanders down to seniors, but then I also don't bring up childish bullshit and expect it to be moved to the front of the queue and be handled how I demand. There are a couple of people around here who want to stand in the lime light and then complain about how bright it is. Stop judging yourself on intentions and others on outcomes. It is pretty damned unfair and if you do it here then you do it throughout the rest of your life as well.

    So after taking some time to consider what I am thankful for, I decided to put my children. My oldest is 18 was born with autism and will be graduating on Tuesday. My baby, who isn't much of a baby, is 16 about to be 17 will be graduating in 2021. Without these two in my life the last 12 years, I don't think I would be here today. I have been a single mom since their dad passed away in '07 and it hasn't been easy. I work but I don't make a lot and so sometimes we have to cut corners. My children have only complained about the unfairness of not having their dad when major things happen. Example: the church hosting a father/daughter dance. Or my son turning of age and needing that man to man talk and being to embarrassed to talk to his Uncles so comes to me for answers. Or Prom and now Graduation. The last 12 years haven't been easy but my children have been like a balm on the pain of losing their dad and the Strength to keep moving forward and to cherish every moment you make with them.

    Whats going to bring back REAL activity in D2 is ladder reset. This is nothing new. Towards the end of every season this happens. People tend to get burned out and start to play other games in the community (there is nothing wrong with that and is actually encouraged sometimes) We have all seen this before over the years. Like @PoPs(OD) said we still have people running this month with good numbers. I have been trying out other games while I wait on reset but I still get on D2 and I am available on team speak daily. I am positive things will start picking up once they finally announce the date for reset.

    Just gonna say this, you need to re-check who you are and what you're about. I read up on what happened, and for an adult to act like this is concerning to say the least. There is a time and place for fun, and there's a time to be serious. Also, I know this is the internet but this is a community like any other. OD has rules, you broke them, suffer the consequences. Maybe you wouldn't have gotten in so much trouble if you ever learned when to keep your mouth shut. I'm astounded you turned out like this, before I left you were an officer who was praised highly and was being looked at for higher rankings. But your actions confirm what your eval said, you need to grow and mature more before you handle that much power. When I was 16 I handled situations with more maturity than you, maybe that's why I actually became a general. Or maybe it was because it was necessary for the new division I helped create, either way, GET THE CHIP OFF YOUR SHOULDER! You legit have one life, so either stop wasting yours and everyone else's time and move on, or go away. I know some things can be hard to move on from, and if that's the case, then your resignation is a start on your road to bettering yourself, but a resignation means nothing if you keep coming back... (especially just to troll and create drama - then you're no better than an immature and spiteful teenager)

    I'm gonna be honest here, GhostDog. I can tell that you have a very real interest in bettering the clan. I can further tell that you see issues in the way the clan is run. However, I think you have fallen in to confirmation bias. You have already decided how the clan works and what problems it has. When presented with evidence of how the clan is run, you attempt to align it with your view instead of align your view with the evidence. You accuse the administration of providing poor answers and this thread of seeking validation. However, based on your reactions to the answers you have received it is clear that your questions weren't asked to find the truth but to find affirmation that your current view of administration is correct. The answers you have received were not in line with your view. Presented with this, you either attempt to find an interpretation that brings it in line or just drop it altogether saying that it was pointless to ask because we'll never change. None of this is how discovery is done. You don't seek the truth to affirm a view, you seek the truth to find the truth and only the truth. If you are unwilling to see administration in any other way than the way you have unilaterally decided it is, then yes this thread is pointless for you. If you refuse to earnestly and charitably take our answers to your questions to heart and use it to reevaluate your view of administration, then both of our times are being wasted.

    GD, (by the way GD is a term some Christians use because they are not allowed to take the lords name in vain) your point is correct for major tier changes, but not minor tier changes (to WO and SO). Another point on justice. Yes, it is in the eyes of the beholder. However, I believe we are doing our best to improve. For example, pre-2010 someone was demoted 7 ranks for picking up someone gold during a duel. On the promotion side pre-2014, there was no evaluation system for generals, a single general or commander promoted who they liked at the time behind closed doors. There was no transparency or consensus. Also, I’m not in total agreement with your comparison to “getting the large electoral college states”. As Führer Cheetoh has accomplished, you can get many lower value states (Enlisted) and still win the election. I’ve seen a member overcome -38 from Commanders, Generals, and Officers to obtain their officers rank with many enlisted and warrant officers behind them. Lastly, I was also demoted and a little butthurt. I had enough votes to remain at my 4* rank. However, after I criticized others’ evaluations, they had changed their votes in retaliation and I was demoted. I chose to work on myself and the things I could control. I outstayed the vote-changers and earn my right to run this community. That is why I have a special connection to members like you and former members like @Ray(OD). My example shows that it is possible to be demoted and then make a comeback.

Jules Ill never not be that mad lunatic but when I feel like if I dont enjoy the world sober why did I get sober , and Dont worry Ill still send you madness when ever you need it ❤️ my hand hurts from all this typing 😛 and tom isnt for sale until I figure out how to clone in my basement I cannont afford 30 grand right now but I mean he can be cryogenically frozen so thats a plus when I do figure it out I still have cells EDIT if I AM missing anyone sorry my hands hurt and i pretty much wasted this entire bake on writing this so you all better feel god damn good about your selves ugh back to the deck I go and Im pretty sure I heard a dying goose like wow it was honking really fucked up and then I heard a crash into the trees good eatings I spose naw it would be all crushed well maybe ill update you all on this goose soon

    It would be problematic to allow anyone to recruit for their clans on our websites and forums, especially since most of our divisions have rules against being in multiple clans for that game. In all my years of gaming i have never seen a gaming clan allow other clans to recruit on platforms they pay for and maintain, and that are related to their clan only.

    While it is sad to see people move on from OD, we must remember that even in leaving, there are some things to keep in mind. We have a published set of guidelines for posting a resignation, which can be found here: These rules state: If these rules are not followed, threads may be subject to be locked, warnings given out, etc.

    Hari(OD), We just want to confirm the current state of the D3 Division. Ashley (Redvaine) will take over as the main leader in d3 and be the face of the division. Aaron (MooMoo) will take over as the co lead and assist with division responsibilities. We will find a third for division leadership as well, and ask that Hari remain a part of it until we can find a replacement. Just to summarize the events that just happened between Prozacck, MooMoo, and Hari: Hari invited MooMoo to be a part of the division leadership. Prozacck has deferred leadership and stepped down, along with Hari backing off as well. Redvaine has also agreed to step up and take the lead.

    Good Morning Rich, You bring up a great point. I would also like to bring some clarification on the purpose of the community meeting. These meetings are designed for all members of the community to get a better understanding of how the clan operates and give feedback. No policies can be changed during these meetings, but suggestions will be taken to the Rules Community and Administrative meetings. We want ideas from the community. I’m not saying “consensus recommendations” shouldn’t be taken in community meetings as polls. But be wary of the meanings of these polls or “votes”.

    Ray and I were chatting on TS and I was testing possible new contests. So we brainstormed, BayButcher was there too lol and this is what came of that conversation. End of ladder is soooooooooooo slow, so here's something to get you all moving a little faster PLUS get more people on Teamspeak. If you haven't downloaded Teamspeak here's a tutorial: http://forum.overdosed.net/topic/61825-teamspeak-tutorial/ Clan OD's TS server is: TS3.overdosed.net. Now for the fun part. You must log onto Teamspeak and hunt down members and get them to either answer a truth or dare. The truths would be typing out the answer to your question, you then copy and paste it here OR the dares could be like post a picture of your toes on the forum. Pretty simple right, but the catch is you must get at least one individual from each rank as well as one member from each game channel: POE, D3, D2, Black Desert, Overwatch, and Apex. If it is a dare, it can't be dangerous or pornographic and be good mannered when asking a truth question. First person to post a response either truth or dare from each game and each rank WINZ. So 6 games and ranks would be Commander, General, Sr. Officer, Officer, Warrant Officer, Enlisted. That's a MINIMUM of 6 people that have to agree to participate with you of these various ranks. Good luck and most importantly HAVE FUN. Prize will be 300 FG!

    It's looking pretty favorable for a FB page instead of a group. I will wait a little tiny bit longer before implementing such a change to reflect it :). I will advertise this thread on the "News" section of the website to hopefully get more feedback. Triny poked me about being able to potentially help in automating the stream to social media process, so once I know more and once it's able to be looked into more, I'll update ~ For the time being, schedule are always appreciated and if anyone streams at a schedule or would be willing to contact me before they go live, I'd be more than happy to post your content to the social media pages. Regarding getting more people involved, this is already a thought in my mind once everything solidifies nicely. I don't want to bring in more people until everything is in place and can adequately be managed with some sort of organization - I still have your offer in mind, I promise. I followed you back on the Twitter account, a small incentive to help support our own members with some follows. I will reach out to those three members in regards to any content they wish to be posted (would like to be recent if possible). Thank you for the kind words, it's nice to know that the effort is being seen well and that some appreciate this push. Type, my heart can't handle these mind games - are you doing this for reals. I hope it reignites both to be honest, both entities have the opportunity to work well with each other and help each other, so I hope that both streaming and social media gets more interest involved soon enough. Baby steps to start! Thanks for the kind words 🙂

    I just followed the Twitter group...fuck my old lady is gonna razz me on this one 🙂 I dont have Facebook cause I'm a turd, but the page idea sounds better. I like the Twitter link on the home page. I think showcasing a game each week would be neat too...maybe contact @Drewg(OD) @MooMoo(OD) for any in game d2 pvp videos...I think even @DBZ(OD) had some a while ago. regardless people like showcasing their talents, and having a following of 170+ people on Twitter will slowly start growing. Maybe some randoms look and say..."hey these turds suck, I'll show you what high level gaming looks like"...and join OD. Just a simple scenario either way I'm digging this putting the pen to paper. Your taking us in the right direction
