[HAC] Staff Meeting Planning in The Archives Posted June 4, 2013 · Report reply It seems that everyone is okay with a time shift to 1pm EDT on Saturday June 15th. Below is a proposed post announcing the staff meeting, assuming it takes place then. Please take it and edit it to your hearts' content - I basically adapted it from the September staff meeting announcement. I'd recommend posting it in Mod Chat (sticky it), then making a subreddit post which links directly to it. You'd probably also want to add a banner on the subreddit some length of time before it happens (maybe up to a week). --------------------------------- Hi folks, We will be hosting our next staff meeting on Mumble on Saturday, June 15th at 1pm EDT (11 days from now). The primary objective of staff meetings is to both update staff on the state of the servers and recent changes, and encourage active communication both among the staff and with the entire player community. This also gives everyone a chance to pose the questions they've always wanted answered, and to discuss topics relevant to our community in a large group. At this particular meeting, we'll be discussing some of the new features on the servers and changes in our server tools (such as the forums). We'll also discuss some recently-written guides on how to more effectively handle particularly difficult aspects of moderating, such as xraying and PVP logging. Finally, we'll talk about how to broach the topic of advertising our servers to the world at large, and announce some upcoming events. All this and more! (TODO update with whatever things you'd like to talk about) As always, everyone is invited to join and participate, both staff and non-staff. Initial discussion will be limited to mods and admins, but we'll open up the floor at the end to questions from players. All players and staff are welcome to PM the head admins ahead of time if there's a topic you'd like to discuss, especially if you won't be able to attend the meeting itself - we'll make sure your questions get answer. (You're welcome to talk to the head admins about issues anytime, not just staff meetings. Any of in-game/Mumble/IRC/forum PM/Reddit PM work!) We'll try to post a loose agenda ahead of time. Server admins: please be prepared to talk about recent (~last 3 months) and planned upcoming changes for your server. Tech admins: please be prepared to talk about recent (~last 3 months) and planned upcoming changes to our server tools, commands, and infrastructure. Mods: if you're available, please try to attend. If not, we'll post a recording of the meeting. Thanks!
