PostSubject: F2PIronmanFC 'Ranks' Explained   Sun Mar 05, 2017 8:41 am

The Teams

The term ‘rank’, is perhaps misleading since it is necessarily hierarchical and fails to represent the role of those who have agreed to take on some area of responsibility in the friends chat.

There are two teams within the Friends Chat, focussing on different areas, both of whose contributions are equally valued, the FC Moderation team (FC Mods) and the Community Activist team (CAs). Players with a star symbol in FC, are FC Mods and have moderating responsibilities in the chat. Players with a three stripes symbol are members of the CA team, responsible for enabling and encouraging FC users involvement in the community aspect of the FC. A few players may be in both teams, but on the whole, they are distinct since different qualities are required for each role.  The symbols chosen do not indicate relative importance neither are they a step in ‘career progression’.

The ‘Ranks’

(Three Stripes): Members of the CA team. Active, friendly players with experience playing on a F2P Iron account, who love interacting with others and getting involved with F2pIronmanFC community initiatives.

(Gold star in FC): Curators of the FC, involved in both the FC Mod team and the CA team. Kicking permissions in FC.

(Silver star in FC): FC Mods, trusted mature players with experience playing on a F2P Iron account, (they may also be added on their non-iron/P2P accounts). Kicking permissions in FC.

(Smiley faces in FC): may occasionally be given for a temporary period in the friends chat as a recognition of some sort (eg winning FC events, hosting an event etc). Smileys are normally removed after a month, unless the contribution of the player who has received a smiley is on-going.

(See next two posts for more details about the teams.)

Community Activists

The central thing about this role, as the name implies, is activity! These players are the life and soul of the FC: friendly, amiable, chatty, helpful, enthusiastic, full of ideas and motivation regarding the FC and known by all the FC regulars. They are committed to developing our FC community spirit and to making the FC a fun and exciting place to hang out.
Facilitating the CA team in their endeavours is the responsibility of the CA team Coordinator, ‘facilitation’ being the pertinent word. The CA team Co-ordinator is no more or less important than any other CA team member but is there to help things run smoothly.



Criteria for Invitation to the CA team

• Enthusiastic involvement in the chat

• Active in game

• Friendly/welcoming

• Helpful/willing to give in game advice and tips

• A demonstrated interest in attending/organising ‘events’ in a broad sense (forum, in-game, Discord etc)

• Willing to register on our forums

• Have had, or do have, considerable experience playing f2p iron themselves

• Adhere to our guidelines for behaviour in chat

• Have been active in the FC for at least 8 weeks



Process of Recruiting to the CA team

1. Prospective recruits will be identified and proposed by any current member of the CA team.
2. The CA team will consider the player’s suitability for a further two weeks minimum.
3. The CA team Coordinator will summarise the team’s feedback and make a decision based on it.
4. If the candidate is approved, the CA team Coordinator will invite them to join the team.



CA Team Removals

Since activity is a crucial aspect in this team, the team will be far more fluid than the FC Moderation team in terms of people coming, going and returning. CA team members are expected to withdraw formally from the team if they have a temporary period of reduced activity, and will be readily reinstated once they return to greater activity again. You are therefore likely to see the three stripes symbol disappear and reappear from players fairly frequently – that won’t be because they have done something dreadful!
In the case of prolonged inactivity without notice, the CA team Co-ordinator will make a recommendation to the Curators of a player to be withdrawn from the team.

FC Moderators

The sole role of an FC moderator (silver and gold star symbols in FC) is to help maintain an environment in the chat that is both pleasant and constructive for all. To enable them to do that they have powers to kick disruptive players at their discretion. In most situations a warning will be given first, usually by pm if that is possible. If the behaviour is repeated, the offender will then be kicked. In extreme situations though, FC moderators may kick without a warning.

The star symbol in the FC is not a reward in any sense. It merely indicates that a tool has been given to a player who has displayed the necessary character traits, to enable them to help keep the chat a pleasant place to be.


Criteria for Invitation

Bearing in mind that the sole responsibility of a FC moderator is to maintain a pleasant chat environment, players are not invited because of their knowledge, skill levels, events they have organised, time of playing Ironman, or length of time in the FC. The only qualities taken into consideration are their maturity and ability to relate to others with respect, friendliness and sensitivity. The ability to diffuse a potentially volatile situation tactfully rather than jump in on one side and fuel the fire, is particularly valued.

FC moderators are not expected to have all the answers, or to always be on call for giving advice. Thankfully, we have many much valued knowledgeable and experienced players in FC who are happy to share their knowledge with others.

In addition to the personal characteristics required, a prospective FC mod must have been in chat for at least long enough for several current FC mods to be confident that they have the necessary qualities to fulfil the role well. They must also have played on an F2P Ironman account (either currently or previously) for long enough to have a good idea of what that entails.

A 'new' FC Mod who you have not seen in FC before, may sometimes be seen. In that case, it is probably the alt of an existing FC mod. You can check the list in the post below for FC mod's alts that also have silver stars in the chat.

Process for recruiting new FC Mods

1. A potentially suitable candidate is recommended to the team by one of the current FC Moderators.
2. A minimum two week period is given, to give other FC Mods who may be less familiar with the candidate, a chance to watch them and develop an opinion. This period may be greater if that process is taking longer, for example if the person recommended is on a different time zone or is currently not so active.
3. Current FC mods feedback their views on the proposed FC mod to the team.
4. The team arrive at a consensus on whether to invite them or not.
5. If it is decided that the candidate is suitable, the one of the Curators will invite them to help out on the team.


FC Mod Removals

We anticipate that the need for enforced removal of FC mod permissions will be extremely rare, as we choose players to invite very carefully and cautiously, particularly now that we already have a fairly large team of those prepared to help out in that way. However, it would be foolish to assume that the need for that to happen will never arise.

There are certain expectations of those who moderate the chat, which if they persistently ignore, will necessitate the removal of their star in FC. That doesn’t necessarily mean they have done something terrible, just that they are unwilling to take on the limitations that the role involves regarding the way they interact with others. To some extent, there are higher expectations of FC mods than there are of other FC users, and that does not necessarily suit everyone.

To protect the person’s privacy, reasons for the removal of their FC mod responsibilities will not be posted publicly, unless they choose to raise it publicly themselves. They are of course free to tell anyone else they wish to themselves. They would be still very welcome in the chat of course.

Also, to state the obvious, any FC moderator is free to step down from their volunteering at any time they wish to, either for a temporary period or permanently.
