As summer winds down, I want to just touch base with the current active members of Subsistence that check the forums, and to give you an update on what my plans are as the academic year begins in a few weeks. First of all, I want to apologize for the lack of events and overall activity of my department over the summer. There has been a lot of logistical changes that needed to go into effect before I felt comfortable making specific changes to the Events department.
Moving forward, I have a lot to ask of you all. My goal is to get a general standard created for the clan that will make events much more successful. To do this, I want to ask you all to provide answers to a series of questions, such as what time of day do you most often play RS during, to give us a basic understanding of when it would be best to make events. Your answers to these questions, however, will not be requested of you until mid to late September, so that your answers will apply to your schedule during the academic year as opposed to the summer. My goal is to find 3 good times each week that events can be scheduled for that a considerable amount of the clan will be able to attend. Along with those questions will be the poll we have all seen before about what events you would like to see held. It has been over a year since the last poll like this has been done, and a lot has changed about the game since then, so an updated poll will be extremely helpful and is warranted.
The assistance that I need from you all now is about the Game Manager Sub-Director position that I announced a few months ago. So far, only one person has formally applied for a position, which bodes the question, does the clan want this? I want to know your opinions in replies to this topic; Yes, we should pursue managers for these positions and there is a strong want for leadership power for the games, or no, the clan members get along just fine playing the games without direct affiliation with the clan. Now, it can be more complex than just yes or no. Should it be an elected or appointed position? I'll be honest, I thought a lot more people would be interested in this, but I am totally fine with just considering it a failed project and moving on. Please, I encourage everyone to give me their feedback below so that I can take the right course of action moving forward.
In Events Team news, we have a new member in our midst! Congratulations to PublishingD on joining the team. Him and HadesKratos will do a fine job making events for you all. If you are new or have now decided that you'd like to join the team, please send me a private message on the forums, message me in game, or over skype/steam/league and I'll consider it. I am looking for one or two more members for the team so you won't be turned away immediately!
Thank you for reading, and be on the lookout for next month's update that will include my questions for you and information on some events that I plan to revive from the archives!
Director of Events
