Badboi(OD)’s 14th Evaluation

Recommended Posts

Link to my last Evaluation:

I prefer to post an evaluation annually, so that members can ask questions about my contributions that I give to the community and make it a better place for everyone. 

 

Here are the expectations for the position. 

 

Evaluation Criteria

Commanders

- Can aptly judge the direction and status of the Clan to insure it is progressing in a manner suitable and safe for the community

- Can solve the problems that nobody else can solve

- Communicates regularly with the other Commanders to keep each other informed and on the same page

- Identifies and intervenes in any situations that pose a risk to the integrity of the community

- Attends General-Specific meetings

- Votes on all General Evaluations that take place 
 

Individual Performance

- Can aptly judge the direction and status of the Clan to insure it is progressing in a manner suitable and safe for the community. Check, I step in a resource when needed.

- Can solve the problems that nobody else can solve. Check. Ask any of the Commanders, I'm not afraid to make hard decisions.

- Communicates regularly with the other Commanders to keep each other informed and on the same page. Kinda Check. Communication is still an area where I need to improve on.

- Identifies and intervenes in any situations that pose a risk to the integrity of the community. Check. I'm on tap whenever needed.

- Attends General-Specific meetings Check as well. I believe that I have missed one last year.

- Votes on all General Evaluations that take place . Check. I see myself as the harder to get votes

 

Overall Community Performance

Since last year, there have been many performance measures of the clan that have stabilized. We now support more than 5 games with multiple divisions outside the ARPG genre. We currently  support a RTS, but not a MOBA, or MMORPG as a major division. Our overall member count is the lowest in 5 years. However, we have made gains in developing and retaining top leaders. Despite adding more rigorous standards and an evaluation period for our highest ranking members, we now have the most Generals and Commanders in the past 6 years with 4 more officers looking to join the fold. With these great leaders, we have reduced the number of disruptive situations (drama) and created a stable environment.

 

Community Involvement

Host of Admin and General's Meetings

Rules Committee Member

Active PoE Advisor and Warzone Gamer

Various Commander Duties

Data Analytics

President of the OD Chess Club

 

Leading Statement

Wow, I can't believe that it has been 10 years! Thank you everyone for all of the things you do to make the community fun and safe. Now, back to my eval. I believe that I have fulfilled all criteria above and should remain at the position of Commander or "an Executive Leader". I have made major community decisions, managed the overall operations and resources of the community, and acted as a point of communication between staff and members. In the past 4 years as Commander, I have switched my role in community leadership to making high-level strategic decisions and directing the community's overall goals, but reducing the hands-on involvement with day-to-day operations. My gaming, meeting attendance, and VoIP activity have remained the same and I continue to set the tone, vision, and sometimes the culture of the community. This will be my first year not "leading" a division. As I have left SC2, LoL, and Overwatch. I am currently a part of PoE and serve in an advisory role. For the community, I have remained professional, respectful, supportive, responsive, in communication, and informative. There are still some commitments that I have lagged on, as far as the rules committee dealings, but overall I believe my performance should grant me a continued mandate to lead this community. Thank you and I look forward to answering any questions you may have.

 

Just a reminder to those not familiar with the current eval process, posts are limited to 2 question posts (can have multiple questions per post), and 1 opinion and/or statement post, per person.

I contributed a litte bit to @CompFreak(OD)'s Analysis of Phase 1 passing Generals and the Phase 2 Outcomes. Although, I only poured a few hours into it and Comp many sleepless nights, I want to share it to the OD public. Eventually @CompFreak(OD) and I need to gather all of the data analytics that we've done into a single thread. It's interesting (I think).

I believe it is important that the Commanders volunteer to make annual evaluations.  Sometimes the admin side of this Clan can overtake us all.  We need to make sure the community knows us and games with us if possible.  I applaud your efforts and look forward to continuing to learn under your tutelage.

 

What do you think is one of the major tasks that each Clan member can undertake to make a difference?

What steps did you personally take when I announced my initial IA that led to my Disablement as a fellow Commander to ensure anything that I was initially responsible for.. was still taken care of?

Frank,

 

Or my nickname for you... my panic commander... lol... 

 

Even during these times crisis that the world faces and being on the front line working at a hospital day in and out. You've done such an amazing job and keeping your participating and a watchful eye over our community. 

 

Not once but twice I've reached out to you with emergent needs while I was not home and as always you replied and simply asked how you can help. 

 

You are a true leader through and through. I may not always see eye to eye with your judgments or how you do things. But, that has never stopped us from working together for the better of the community. 

 

I respect all the work and time and effort you put into our community and appreciate it. 

 

I support your stay at commander. You have my +1.

Frank you are always around whenever anybody needs you.. Always there to provide guidance.. Very active in all aspects of the clan as you should at your rank. 

 

Based on your experience as a general and a commander how would you determine that it is time for leadership to step down?

 

Would you say that you can judge that fairly based on a division's success?

 

 

Regardless of your answers you have my support on this one! GL man

None. Terra made sure that Comp handled the donations. In the 5 months you were IA/Disabled, I missed was your creative ideas the most.

The simple answer: It's time for leadership to step down when they are no longer benefiting their division and/or the community as a whole. In my 10 years, I've seen three different things play out with a new up-in-coming leader(s) and ineffective leadership. A) Leadership steps down and new leadership steps in. B) Old Leadership remains and creates a barrier for new leadership. C) Old leadership mentors new leadership. Obviously, C>A>B. When B happens, senior leadership and I get involved. Of course, I'm talking about division leadership and Generals+.

No. There are some situations where a division is succeeding, but the leader needs to step down or mentor. I've done this in SC2 (2011) and LoL (2015). There are also times when a division is stagnant, but the leader doesn't need to step down. D2 in any period before reset. Lastly, there are division that eventually die out to do lack of interest. Myself again in OW (2016-2019). We left due to a terrible meta. However, I can judge if a leader needs to step down based on a multi-faceted approach. I look not only at the performance of their division, but also their community contributions, character, and activeness.

Do you feel you should have done anything more than what was done?

 

Your evaluation is a perfect example for this question. My post here marks the 12th post on your evaluation. Do you feel this is a problem in terms of getting a fair review of your contribution and efforts to ensure the community is taken care of?

 

Overall, turnout gets more and more lackluster each evaluation period we do, we generally have become very lax on what we expect the Generals to do in regards to their contribution to the process. I'll use Sassy as an example. Sassy automatically approved your evaluation with the reasoning of 'awesome girlfriend' and your '14 evaluations speak for themselves'. Or even Sunset's evaluation of you explicitly stating he's bias and automatically believes you should stay at your rank. Do you feel this is a fair assessment of your contributions?

 

How would you, if you feel these are an issue, address them moving forward to ensure our Generals are held to a higher standard?

No I don't think I should have done anything more. As much as @Terra and I have been on opposite sides of the spectrum (some members would not even know that I recruiter her in the ODSC2 channel), but we have had superb teamwork. Oh course, we must not forgot R.ag, our anchor on the U.S.S. OD.

 

I have always been on the side of "Your work within the past evaluation will speak more volumes than the words and participation in your evaluation". I believe you may be in the other school of thought. Also, Sunset could have mentioned that he's seen my leadership skill set in action for the past ten years and approves. The "bias" is an allusion to the fact that he set ranked me from Enlisted to Officer, because he saw my potential as one of his successors. Sassy has only seen my leadership for six years, but has acutely experienced my support when she needed it most.

 

My opinion is that it is not fair to assess evaluation threads before they are even due/started. Thanks for the questions and discussion starters (Purp and Aaron as well).
