Purplez(OD) 3rd evaluation

Recommended Posts

I am honored and excited to be nominated for a promotion to Lt. General.  My previous evaluations list my background here:

 

https://forum.overdosed.net/topic/69747-purplezod-second-evaluation-january-2020/

 

https://forum.overdosed.net/topic/68461-purplezod-first-evaluation-march-2019/

 

     Covid-19 has turned everybody's daily life upside down worldwide.  We are all under an incredible amount of stress both emotionally and financially as well as being  worried about what the future may hold.  In this time of social distancing, it is internet groups such as Clan Overdosed, that will provide us with a de-stressing safe place.  The community atmosphere and welcoming nature that is fostered in Clan OD and the basis of what Clan OD stands for is never more apparent then in this time of great need. 

 

     Since 2010, Clan OD has strived to be as welcoming to individuals in the gaming world as it can be.  We do not allow discrimination in any manner nor bad manners or ill will toward anyone.  THAT is why I stay in Clan OD.  THAT is why I try to do my part to keep this community together.  THAT is why I promise to you that I will continue to do everything in my power, no matter what rank I am, to keep this community and family like atmosphere safe.  I put in many hours, as a lot of members do, offering what I can in my skill set.  My accomplishments as exhibited in my previous evaluations and my continuing efforts are all aimed toward that goal.

 

     I am now proud to say I am a co-leader in the D2 division.  Recently, I prepared and distributed a questionnaire to all D2 generals and officers to ascertain playing times and where training was needed.  I've also prepared several guides for the OD Academy and plan to do more.  Because, as we all know, education is the key to making this community continue to grow and allow fair treatment to all our members.

 

     I hold many contests and support any who do to keep members interested and coming back for more.  For every member I put up for promotion, if they haven't used their console, they get a private message from me, sending them guides.  I spend hours individually with members training to recruit and to use their console both in game and on Discord.

 

     I've also been expanding my gaming experience by trying FFIV, POD, Ark, and D3.  I visit the various Discord channels and watch other divisions members play their games via stream.  That way I get to know many members and new games at the same time.  It's like watching tv lol

 

     I encourage everybody I can to use the forum.  I also read every single post that is made, and usually comment on them, trying to offer support where I can.  I am active in the Generals' board offering my input on suggestions as well as attend every admin/general meeting I can.  In fact, I just hosted my very first admin meeting on March 22 and am now on the list to host every four months or so.  I help maintain the JSP Guild, maintain a channel announcement bot in D2, and maintain bumpers for grushes as well as a Chantress.  I am also the host for the bi-yearly Clan Awards.

 

     I send out monthly D2 newsletters -- up to over 50 volumes now -- although I did miss February.  I am very active on Discord and, I believe, I was very helpful in making the transition from TeamSpeak to Discord easier for a lot of members.  I also post on our Facebook page any new content from the forum and am on the social media team.  I am also on the R&R team.  I also mediate issues that arise among members and resolve conflicts.  

 

 

 

During this Phase I part of the evaluation process, every member is welcome to ask up to two questions as well as post an opinion statement.  I invite you all to put your input here.  Once Phase I is over, the generals and commanders will vote on whether I proceed to Phase II.  If I pass to Phase II, then my name will go up on the regular promotion board and ALL community members are welcome to vote, but everybody only gets 1 vote.  (Commanders and Generals cannot vote on the Phase II part since they already voted during Phase I.)

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. 

 

❤️

Thank you for your support Hari, it means a lot!  You'll be happy to know that since the reset on December 6th I've personally held 11 contests.  As well as outfitting 4 or 5 members with enigmas/cohs, forts, etc to become runners.  All thanks to the generosity of our members, including you!

I just want to point something out. I know I'm not currently active in the community. I can't see all of the links you've provided because I no longer have unrestricted access (heh, kind of miss my General/Commander power sometimes). Over time, I've vowed to keep in touch with what's going on in the community, and I like the response you've provided here. General/Commander Evaluations were something I was strictly curious about and will keep up on only because they help guide the future of this community, even if I'm on hiatus. 

 

You let your actions speak for you, and not try to fluff up any kind of 'oh yea I did this' and make it sound better or worse than it may actually be in reality. Instead of just talking about the things you've done, you provided hard evidence for the events you started. And I appreciate that. 

 

From the time I've known you, you've always been one to be unafraid of tackling a problem. I remember you said that there was a time that if it stopped being fun for you here in OD or as a leader, then you would then leave as a result. I hope that day never comes, because it's no secret of what you contribute to this community. You're definitely someone this entire community can come to and look to. And you make me proud just seeing that there are Generals of your caliber. Not to say you're infallible or perfect, but you do a pretty damn good job with the tasks you are handed and personally undertake from anything that I can tell. 

 

These are just the 2 cents of a Commander on hiatus. 🙂 Keep up the awesome work there Purplez. Never forget actions speak louder than words ever will. Best of luck!

So happy to see you posting and keeping up, we miss you lots and lots!  I do hope that your real life issues are going well for you and you are getting your mo jo juice back in place.  I hope like hell I never become infallible or perfect, what's the fun in that.  I still push the wrong buttons on computers and get into messes that require *cough* help LOL but if you don't try something, you never know if it works. 

 

The times we are all facing are scarey beyond belief, not just health wise, but financially.  Everyone is stressed beyond belief and are seeking to relieve some of those stresses by on line gaming.  We even have 3 known members who either have COVID or have recovered … @Daterminaytah(OD) @xWaldo(OD) and @Sassy  I hope to continue holding contests and trying to spread some purple cheer wherever I can.  By helping others, it helps me and my stress and anxiety.

 

Oh btw did you see the April Fool joke @R.agnarok(OD) played on us by shutting down the website and the forum for most of the day?  lmao  I'm sure it wasn't intended but it seemed like a good prank for that day.

 

Your support and comments have totally made my day.  ❤️

Cindy I feel your actions speak for themselves. You are an extremely active, helpful general who has proven to be a great asset to this clan. I also believe you fulfill almost if not every rank expectation that is written for the rank of Lieutenant General and Major General. (I can't speak on some that involve matters exclusive to Generals.) You have my full support. Keep up the awesome work! 😁

I do not see any flaws in Cindy. Represents the clan well, and has stepped up, filling a void after several members (including myself) were pulled in different directions. 

 

You've hosted numerous events that are not specifically PvP related, showing others how easy it is to host even events as simple as , "guess a number"

 

Only issue I have with the promotion is how quickly this is all happening. I know you are not responsible for individuals fast forwarding your ranks, and I don't think you should feel "punished" for any neg votes because of others actions.

 

For example, Pops has been at his rank for almost 2 years, you've been at yours for just over 2 months.

Sassy was demoted almost a full year ago, and now has over 700 days since promotion , albeit there was a rollercoaster of unfortunate events unfolding her situation that a hiatus was needed.

 

That being said, some members here have put in more time, and been around the block. Took breaks, came back, made impacts etc. Everyone has a life to live and how they do it is entirely up to them.

 

Again, rewinding the track here, I have zero issues with anything you are currently doing. I'm just not in favor to "Fast tracking" when we have all seen how it goes for members.

 

Some of the members in ranks above you I have never even gamed with....and I've played a bunch of games. Also none of them have ran a division as gigantic as D2...so maybe you should be fast tracked 😉

 

Anyways that's just my politically incorrect 2 cents. I think you are doing a fantastic job in many aspects. But I will not be voting in favor or negatively towards your next rank.

Thank you for the support Kevin albeit you are not a fan of "fast tracking."  I truly did not expect the nomination to write an evaluation at the last Generals' meeting.  I had to take a few days to talk to people and really reflect if I should write an evaluation.  Therefore, if I am reading your comments correctly, it is your opinion that I am fulfilling the rank requirements to be promoted.  Your specific concern is the amount of time spent at my current rank that causes you issues.  I did a little research on our current Generals and Commanders and was surprised at how many  were in the similar position as my current one.  It certainly gave me a different perspective.

Ha I'm very aware of that. 

 

I would have zero issue with fast tracking if members put their ego aside, and knew when it was the proper time to step down. Unfortunately majority of us aren't hardwired that way. I believe we would see more progress rather then lucking out with a 20 year old game.

 

Back to you, I think you are a good person who means well, and wants new members to feel welcomed and not intimidated. OD is a better community with members like yourself then they are without.

 

What goal(s) are more accomplishable with a higher rank?

 

What would you like to see happen with OD if the world was built entirely by your vision?

I think that you're accolades speak pretty clearly for themselves so I won't even mention them. 

 

How do you feel the interaction between divisions are and what could be done to improve upon inter-division bonding?

 

Do you feel like Clan OD as a whole is in a better or worse place than when you first joined? Why?

 

 

 

You have my +1 but I look forward to your answers!

I don't think rank will intrinsically change me or what I do in the Clan.  I will continually look for new ideas or easier ways to do things no matter my rank.  What you contribute to the Clan shouldn't be dependent upon what your rank is.  This is OUR community and you volunteer your time to keep it the fun and friendly place it is whether you are a Staff Sgt. or a General.

I know that you have always had this vision of the Clan being big on the national gaming entity.  I think that could be a wonderful goal for somebody that is willing to dedicate themselves fulltime to gaming.  However, I like the way our community is, the friendliness and the comradery that we urge our members to follow.  We each only have a certain amount of free time available to offer to not only the community but to gaming itself so we have to choose what personally works for each of us as an individual.  My vision would be to keep encouraging any and all to join and bring with them their unique perspectives and skills and see where that takes us in the future.

the move to Discord has certainly improved inter-division bonding in my opinion.  I know I find myself visiting many channels, even though I don't play the game and watching them stream.  You get to join in on the fun and get to know many more members.  I would highly encourage all of us to take some time and visit the other channels as well.  I know on TS I found it a little intimidating to join a strange channel and not know anybody, I felt awkward lol  Now I just pop into the channel and if they aren't streaming I say "I'm here to watch tv, where's the streaming"

Thank you for your support Aaron, I value your friendship and opinion.    I definitely think the Clan is growing and changing all the time with the influx of new members with their different ideas and skills.  I personally think the auto reset of the DSL has hurt in some ways members coming to the website and forum, although it is pretty easy to drop a link on Discord to whatever you want to call attention to, but I do realize the auto DSL reset was necessary.  Some areas we will always have with so many different personalities ... difficulties arise, conflicts aren't resolved.  If we all just keep the common goal in mind, that Clan OD is a great place to be, and we contribute what we can and stop worrying about what rank you are, then it would definitely be a better place.

  You’ve been nothing but a Leader here!! You always strive to make things fun. From constantly making events for members to participate. Extremely active on all platforms that OD Supports, you recruit! You game, and you make time for your members. If let’s say one event finishes you go out your way, and get something planned out for the next one to be more fun then the other one, and so on! it’s great, that Sassy, and the other Generals, such as PoPs, DBZ, and those before see you as a perfect example for the Diablo II Division, you go above & beyond, and members see you as a Role-Model, and a true top-notch leader who knows when to be serious and how to have fun at the same damn time!!
 

Diablo 2 should be amazed, and proud to have you as their backbone. 🙂
 

Thank you Purpz on everything you do for OverDosed♥️
 

Good luck!

Weird for some reason this didn't pop up being unread by me so I am just now seeing it, but in a way I'm glad, because I had a bad day today and this just put a massive smile on my face.  I've met so many amazing people like you SK since I joined the Clan.  The people are what keep me coming back and trying to keep interest level up.  It's the end of ladder so things get a little slow and especially with this virus, it's truly scary times for everybody.  Gaming keeps our minds occupied on something other than bad news.  So thank YOU so much for posting.  ❤️

Cindy,  You have done so much for this clan in the small amount of time you have been around.  And your little purple prints are all over everything OD.  I don't need any discussions of fast-tracking or worthiness.  I think your accomplishments and demeanor speak volumes.  I don't really have any questions for you either...I think Aaron hit the good ones.  Keep being you.  You will always have my support and +1.

Humility can be an admirable trait but if you really think its surprising that you're being considered for a promotion then you're a bit of an airhead too.

 

You have become a fundamental part of this Clans culture and progression. You've become a leader of your Division after a long history of supporting and providing for its members, but the effort you put into the clan extends beyond just your division and to the community as a whole, hosting clan-wide events, contests, helping to run Admin Meetings, social media, and putting forth ideas and propositions in the Generals board. This makes you not just a Division leader, but a true leader of the community as a whole, and is the textbook definition of a Lieutenant General.

 

This isn't to say that you don't have a couple faults. We already touched on it a bit in a recent PM but its important that you don't let your concern over how some people might react stop you from doing what you know needs to be done. People who want to be friends with everyone don't often make for the best leaders, as they generally fall into a trap where they will avoid controversial topics or hesitate when making decisions that they feel might upset others, even when those decisions can sometimes be important for the community overall. Don't let yourself fall into that kind of trap. Our Clan is represented by a very wide range of perspectives, which I would argue is one of our greatest strengths as a community, but it also means disagreements and controversial discussions are inevitable, and not everyone who disagrees or loses to you is going to handle it well.

 

So yes, try to be a good friend to everyone as best you can, but try to be a strong leader as well. When it comes specifically to Clan matters you are a leader first, and a friend second. And sure, sometimes this is going to cause people to resent you, but that's par for the course when it comes to leadership. Honestly if a few people ended up hating you it'd be a nice change of pace, with the seemingly endless amount of adoration people have for you these days I'm starting to feel like I'm living in a children's book.

 

So, Major General Airhead, with that having been said I declare my support for your promotion to 3-Star rank.

Thank you Terra.  Some very valid criticisms of areas I see in myself.  I would definitely not classify myself as an airhead haha but I was surprised because of the short time span.  However, after doing the research to respond to a question in this evaluation, I see that it is not uncommon.  I also agree that we, as leaders, have to have a wide range of perspectives given the amount of games that members play.  Personalities will at times clash and maintaining adult discussions and sometimes "agreeing to disagree" is called for.  You absolutely have to try NOT to take a discussion personally, even if you think it is directed at you.  Instead, look at the overall big picture.  That's why these evaluations, while stressful at times are worth it in the long run to delve into our leaders psyche and perspectives.  

 

And for your continued support, I submit this anime just for you LOL

Firstly, I'd like to apologize that I have not posted sooner here on your eval. - work has been insane these past few weeks (no rest for the wicked, lol)!

 

Secondly, while you have become an integral part of leadership within your D2 division, be it hosting events or helping and supporting other D2 members in game and around OD, the affects of your efforts in contributing to make OD a better place have been felt all over the community. You have expressed interest and pushed yourself out of your comfort zone in starting to host Admin meetings, have taken charge of trying to keep our news posts (on the main site) and face book feeds up to date, have been an active participant in discussions, been seen in various divisional channels in discord (spreading your purple everywhere), and also have brought ideas to the table in an effort to better our community (in the general's board). These things are the types of things I think of if someone were to ask me what makes the difference between a 2-star Major General and 3-star Lt. General of OD. You have done much to warrant this promotion, and I have no questions for you at this time. You have my vote @Purplez(OD). If I may offer any advice, it would be that you shouldn't be so quick to second-guess yourself. Have the confidence not only in yourself, but in those around you, that push you to be a better you😉

 

P.S. I lied, I do have one question for you... Do I get an Anime too? 😁 LOL.

Thank you for your kind words Deniz.  It takes all of us to keep the Clan active and alive.  I love to brainstorm, talk to members in other divisions, hear their excitement as they play a game while I watch them stream.  It's infectious in a good way.  I hope to be around for a long time ❤️
