Should I fill it out again when it's ready?
I helped out at like 2 events sometime last year, then got too busy to help, but I'd like to be on staff now.

INTERESTED IN STAFF?

Here's what's going down.  This Sunday we are meeting to review various OKgamers related changes.  One of the biggest changes - is splitting staff up.

Tourny staff - really don't do much on the forums.
Online staff - don't really help out at events due to scheduling, rides, etc.
Street Crew - talk a bit online, but really aren't around anymore, and need to be 'built back up' badly.

As a result of this, we are looking at splitting up the staff into those defined categories, with a few others added.  (Right now everyone is just "Staff" or leads, and get spammed with the same emails as everyone gets, etc)

So? 

Assuming that goes through - you'll be wantin to think about what staff you'll want to be.  Sure you can participate in all 3, etc - but the truth is usually a volunteer finds their niche, and sticks with it.

...if you are wantin to be staff?

Tourny - consider coming out and helping at the 6/06 tournament if your in the Tulsa area, or getting with Th3 R3ligion on what he needs in the OKC area.
Online - if your not able to get to those sort of deals, but want to help, TRUST ME - we need online forum based feedback - just keep bothering me in PM's after Sunday - and we'll get the form back up, etc.
Street Crew - I'll hug you?  No seriously, we need street crew bad, but yea - it's alot of driving?  From time to time anyway.  Let me know via the form after Sunday.

--

A SERIOUS NOTE ON STAFF:

Because the form is down?  Because no one cares?  Because of something - we've had a serious diedown in staff activity.  It's pretty much ME, and 3 other people right now.  No joke.

So, I'm hoping this new categorization will be approved, and improve things.  Approved = Sunday meeting - anyone is able to come, check out this forum for the thread on that - sadly, yes it's in Tulsa, sorry outta towners :(  Might be able to catch a ride with Fury if your on the way?

If we split things up - I think it'll help alot.  Tourny staff have been so dependable for me at least locally, but rarely are on the forums, and get spammed with "Sign in and give feedback dang it!" messages that are REALLY intended for the "Online Staff" or staff who are remote, or cannot help in person, but want to help out.  And trust me - Online only?  VERY VALUABLE.  Saif = won't move without discussion.  Without online staff...  No discussion.

And that's not even GETTING INTO the issues of added Film Crew needed, Mods, etc.

So yea.  OKgamers needs voluntary staff to exist, or at the very least, maintain current efforts.  If we lose all our staff, the site will remain, but we'll stop all our "offline promotions and efforts".  Without staff I'll not be trying to throw events, gather freebies and sponsorships, and well - it'll just be the online resource arm of the site in play.  Plenty of people can and still will use it, but we'd have to end IRL events, volunteering for hours and promotional efforts - because without the feedback to guide us, and the staff to help at events, scaling back to basic "Hope people google us / spread the word" will have to do.

I can probably help out at some tournaments, I'll definitely be at TnT and Tulsa Comic and Anime Expo, and I can definitely do online stuff.
I can't really do street crew right now, but I should be getting my license in August(ish), and I'd like to do street crew then.

Anything 'site' related goes into Site Improvements - that's where the thread is:

Good times.  Pretty much my advice to Ace or anyone I've talked to on here is general / open to anyone.  OKgamers isn't a cliche, or "the cool people", we've actually all met through this site with the exception of a few old school people - Monsterman and I are roommates, alot of the fighters knew each other from a while back, etc - but for the most part?  Rislone, R3ligion, DarkWraith, Coolsvilla, and older staff are all people who met on here, wanted to help out, came to a meeting or a tournament and got involved.

But like I've said - without people like those helping out, the site can't be as great a resource as it could be.  So yea, hopefully you guys will enjoy it, and we'll find more like you to become active staff members!

Yes, still down.

Now that we've JUST finished the meeting, we'll be updating staff info, and getting it back up.  Watch here - I'll post again when it's up.  Hopefully in the next few days.

I am disabled but spend a massive amount of time online and pc gaming. I am a member of several Anti-Cheat organizations and have experience being a game server admin for a few different clans. If you need my help just ask and I will do my best to accommodate.

While I know some of you are still waiting on the staff form - my apologies, it's been a REALLY busy last few months for myself, and the guy helping me out with the form lol.   Anyway - I do want you guys to know about our next meeting:

http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,2460.0.html

This clearly talks about everyone being welcome, and as anyone interested in being staff, you should definitely review this.


Form to come soon!

So if we're just waiting for the staff form, then we just post here right?

I can't do a lot of online right now, but I can do pretty much anything you need me to do thats not exclusively forum based.
