  1. I'll offer to do this guide as well since I've finished my work on the last guide that I have submitted.
  2. Oh, gosh.... I hope she feels better as soon as possible! Our poor friends. 😞 Please pass on our love and care to her. @PoPs(OD)
  3. FIRST!!!!...LOL Sorry @Rich(OD) Cindy, as someone who spent their early years in OD pouring countless hours into our community to not just better themselves and the community. I can't find any major fault in your efforts. You find joy in everything I see you take part in here. You put our very specific Purple spin on it and take it to the moon and back if you can. From all I've observed, you've been an outstanding addition to the General ranks in D2 which would attribute to your new seat on the Division Leadership team. I haven't been a part of the D2 scene in a few years since my earlier time when I still helped sassy Host bots in channel. But I still try and keep my ear to the ground and help where/when I can. As the Co-Lead for the Social Media Team I can say you take your role very seriously and I can't say I have every had any direction to give you when it comes to improving your work ethic there. I'm looking forward to seeing the work you do in the future as you continue to grow in your roles in OD. I'm happy to give you my support in this evaluation period. ❤️
  4. Cindy, first and foremost I'd like to say as mutual lovers of the color purple. I'm not surprised you enjoy how I create my posts. 🙂 It's my favorite color too. I use it here and there. But I try and not over use it 😛 lol. Either way I really appreciate that you enjoy the time and effort I put into stylizing my posts. In regards to how I would react/handle the time in which a proposal of mine gets implemented. Or the chance it doesn't ever at all. As the person who helped found the concept of our current committee system with the assistance of @Badboi(OD), that took months. Several of the committee proposals never made it past the concept stage. I've proposed many things big and small in my time here in OD. Some have been accepted, while some bounced off the admin team to never been seen again. My reactions to these things have been varied in the past. Sometimes I didn't care at all as they were just ideas. Sometimes I was annoyed. But as I stated in my eval, I've learned to temper how I deal with things and take control of myself and my reactions at this point in my life. I don't foresee a failure to launch of a proposed idea to slow me down or cause me to go nuclear as it might have in the past. Something like that might have happened in the past when I was burning the candle on both ends and dedicating 10-15ish hours a day to OD. But I've learned to balance my life much better now. Thanks for taking the time to post on my eval Cindy! ❤️
  5. Ohhh... Sounds like you were really good. We'll be happy to have you drop by and play some. 🙂
  6. Enlisted Discord Powers The enlisted discord rank powers are as shown below. Enlisted General Permissions Change Nickname Create Instant Invite Manage Role Text Permissions Read Messages Send Messages Embed Links Attach Files Read Message History Mention Everyone Use external Emojis Add Reactions Voice Permissions Connect Speak Use Voice Activity ---- Power Usage I will be going over the the 3 major permissions have access to. These permissions being Change Nickname, Create Instant Invite, Manage Role. Change Nickname The Change Nickname permission will allow you to manage the nickname that you have on our server. Create Instant Invite The Create Instant Invite permission will allow you to create an invite for someone to join our server. All though we prefer if you use the official invite that is linked in the #the-rules channel at the top of our discord. Either discord.overdosed.net can be used in their browser. Or they can use the direct invite link in the discord app/browser of https://discord.gg/QP57wVh. Both of these can once again be found in our #the-rules channel. Manage Role The Mange Role permission is your most powerful permission. This will allow you to right click on a member in discord, navigate to their roles and apply any role that is below "Enlisted" in the role tree.
  7. I will be working on this guide shortly.
  8. Guide to Promotions The Why & Whats of Promoting Why vote on promotions? This is a great question. We vote on promotions on our website so we can acknowledge the accomplishments of our fellow members in this community. Positive Voting But what are some valid reasons for voting on a fellow community member? You can follow these suggestions provided by @R.agnarok(OD) here. An appropriate comment should contain: - At least 3 reasons for promotion. Reasons can be: -Recruiting, being a good recruiter is most important for the clan. -Activity on forums. -Website activity by keeping 0 DSL at most times, using the console to vote for promotions/trial members, award medals, etc. -Activity on our Discord Server. -Activity on the games they play that are supported in OD. -Good behavior, this includes being GM at all times and how the member handles himself towards the other members. -Helping train members to improve their skills(all games) or by giving them items to help their characters (Diablo 2 and Diablo 3). -Achieve outstanding gaming skills. -Organize and participate in tournaments or clan events. -Being a good moderator, when the member has shown capability to deal with clan disputes without abusing his moderator rights. -Taking part of General Clan Discussions on the forums and actively bringing new ideas. If you're still unclear of reasons to vote for a member but want to. You can explore the Rank Expectations for their rank. These are conveniently shown now when you're going to cast your vote as shown below. They can also be found for all ranks at this link here. --- Negative Voting So... what if you come across a member that you feel SHOULDN'T be promoted. Well, that's fine also. You have every right to share your opinion as long as it doesn't cross into BM and is constructive. Negative voting is different from positive voting in one big way. You only need to include a single reason as to why you think they shouldn't be promoted. These reasons can include but are not limited to Not fulfilling their rank expectations Member is BM(shows bad manners) Member isn't active enough within the community Additionally you'll want to follow the below when negative voting on a member. "All voting, whether positive or negative, should be based on what the individual has done since their last promotion, even if they failed their last promotion. It is not considered appropriate to vote for the same reasons on more than one promotion, unless there are examples of them continuing to fulfill those reasons since their last promotion." Removing Promotions There are cases where a member may be put up for promotion and they do not wish to be promoted at that time for various reasons. You can find the topic for the information below here. "It was authenticated in the Administration Meeting of February 21, 2016 that members can ask a General to be removed from the Promotion Pending list if they do not want to be put up for promotion, and said General will remove them, requiring the candidate to wait the minimum time between promotions set for their rank before they are eligible for promotion once more. If a pending promotion is removed then people's reasons for either positive voting or negative voting that individual can be fairly applied in the next future promotion (Typically, especially in the case of neg voting, you don't punish someone for the same reason for more than one promotion, this does not apply if the promotion was prematurely taken down). It is recommended to those who had neg votes on a promotion they asked to be removed that they take some time to address the concerns of the people who neg voted them if they hope to prevent those same neg votes from returning in any future promotion. It is important to note that the removal of someone from the promotion pending list is irreversible, you can't change your mind, so do not ask unless you are certain. No General is responsible for any reckless decisions made in emotionally unstable states of minds. This policy was put into effect after it was collectively deemed unethical to force-promote someone to Commander rank and watch them die an agonizingly slow death over the course of several years." You can find members that are up for promotion at the Promotion List. The Hows of Promoting The Hows of promoting will cover not just voting on an existing member up for promotion. But we will be going over how to put up a member for promotion yourself. How often can members be promoted? A wait time between promotions is enforced by the website, based on ranks Enlisted and Warrant Officers - 7 days between Promotions Officers and Senior Officers - 14 days between Promotions Generals 1-3* - Can only be promoted during an evaluation period, which take place every 3 months Generals 4* - Must wait 6 months upon receiving 4* rank before they are eligible for Commander rank. Afterwards they can be put up every eval period.

  9. Welcome to the community. My I can't say I touch D2 at all. But I'm always around for a chat. Glad to have ya.
  10. Welcome to OD man. I see you've played Halo. Feel free to stop by the Halo division and play some games or on fridays for our Event Nights. They start at 9pm Central. We play on the PC version of the MCC.
  11. Well... It's if not a fellow lurker... lol. Well, I can't say I'm lurking anymore... I'm glad to see you came out. You were always a big part of my support system when we were finding our way through the senior ranks together and eventually became generals. I will never forget the time you took to have the heart to heart conversation with me when I stepped down from Brig. General. Yes, My passion comes out in much I do. I've learned to temper it a bit. Where I can't do that I've learned to take responsibility for the actions I take and the words I say. We have one life to live and our passions shouldn't ruin the friendships we hope to last a lifetime. But of course It's all still a work in progress. Thank you for taking the time Dabomb. ❤️
  12. Ah, some questions... I wondered when these would come... LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!! "How will you stay afloat and balance all of these Clan OD responsibilities while also handling your IRL responsibilities?" As I stated in my OG post I've gotten better at the balance of life/gaming/work etc... I no longer spend 14 hour days performing admin stuff or just dedicated to OD anymore. I split them between my various responsibilities. Does this mean I don't occasionally veg out in front of my computer for 8-10 hours on a weekend with y'all? Of course I will and have occasionally. But, that is and will be on the more rare side. My time spent on anything nowadays is limited to a handful of hours unless it's something I need to focus heavily on. Like how I spent some extra time yesterday with OD doing admin stuff before gaming. But then getting off at the reasonable time of 1030 to spend time before bed with Shannon. -- "How will you manage a balance of leadership and gaming so you do not burn out/stress yourself out?" This ties into my first answer a bit... But I also have a plan for this and it's already being enacted. In the past I had a REALLY hard time delegating tasks I enjoyed doing and filled up my plate. I've learned to be much better with this. If you look to @Raged(OD) and what he posted here as well as my post. You'll see that I've been delegating tasks in my division to members and specifically handpicked @Zakspeeed(OD) to hand off the event team to when I saw how amazing he was. I want to groom future leaders and do so through the administrative work I do here. Thus giving me more time to game with all my friends. ---- I hope I answered your questions in full. ❤️ If not just yell at me and I'll do some more writing. 🙂 lol
  13. Sassy, thank you so much for the kind words. I hope the rest of my eval goes as well as it has. Thank you for your support. 🙂❤️

  15. Thank you for your kind words Raged. I do my very best to fulfill the roles I have within not just our ever growing division but our community as a whole. I look forever to working with you for as long as we can keep it going. 🙂❤️
  16. Yeah, I figured once I was nominated I would get to it. The sooner I got it done the less I had to think about having to write it. Thanks for your support. I've been working hard since coming back to the community to help move us forward and progress as is our current desire to do so. Just trying to play my part. 🙂
  17. Hello Everyone! Welcome to my 3rd Evaluation. What have you accomplished since your last evaluation? Pre-Disablement Post-Disablement(my return to activity) What are some community minded achievements or goals that you’ve been focusing on or have achieved since your last eval? What are your future goals for yourself in the community? (Promoted or not) I hope I have answered all concerns/questions here with being put up for eval. But I welcome any questions as always! Just a reminder to those not familiar with the current process: Posts are limited to 2 question posts (can have multiple questions per post), and 1 opinion / statement post, per person. If you are unsure of rank expectations, please check Item 1.3 on this thread: http://forum.overdosed.net/topic/65260-overdosed-the-guide-to-everything/#comment-803840
  18. It’s a life sim game sorta like stardew. But you’re tasked this time with designing your island. Making friends with the animals on said island. As always make money and make everything beautiful. It’s a generally simple and chill game and this time they’re letting people play together via co-op on islands instead of just visiting. It’s got me pretty excited.
  19. Greetings! Anyone here plan on getting/playing the new animal crossing game that's coming out on the 20th? I'm actually fairly excited for it since I haven't played since the gamecube days.
  20. Update. Because my life is a joke. I’m now sick and talking is Painful. I also now apparently have a wedding thing to do at our venue tomorrow right before the thing would be. I swear. Once this wedding is over I’m going to have so much free time I won’t know what to do with myself. im moving the event to the backup date of the 27th because I was smart and picked a backup day. See you then lovely people!!!!
  21. To be clear, I know you were being supportive and did not mean anything harmful with your post. Also, I brought up what I did simply because sometimes some people who use blanket statements similar to what you said to deny someone’s identity. I know this isn’t what you were doing here. You were just being supportive. Love ya Sassy ❤️
  22. I know you meant ZERO harm with this message and are just being my super supportive friend sassy. 🙂❤️ But to be clear, it actually matters very much to me who/what I am. My identity is incredibly important to me. It’s something people like myself fight for to be recognized.
  23. I’m going to close the poll and mark that we’ll be holding the event on Friday the 13th starting at 8pm EST/7PM CST.
