Rare is it that any group reviews the decision to change a fundamental in it's core.  

OKgamers has maintained a constant 'upwards motion' over the last few years, improving and adding onto what we offer gamers in the Oklahoma area.  From improved forums, more events, free entry and sponsorship of events, to our biggest contribution, helping students get volunteer hours for their time spent with OKgamers events.

However, the system that allows for volunteering opportunities in Tulsa will soon be charging for use.  This brings us to a serious question - do we stop using the service, and take a serious step backwards, or start charging for some events we throw and start "making money" off select events to pay for bills and our time.

Add in the "Getting Started" page concept, as well as the need to finish out our censor list, and it's going to be an important meeting.

passed,

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
"Senior staff" - those who have helped with 5 large events or more, or are founders.  (monthlies count as half lol)
Staff - just joined or long term, your input is always valued.
Gamers - who want to help shape OKgamers future.  We welcome input from anyone concerned enough to show up, and participate...

...FAIR WARNING - This is a MEETING, and thus a business environment.  It's ran along loose parliamentary procedure - meaning Saif sets as a form of "Chairman" starting topics and moderating, while those present act as 'the board', discussing and weighing topics at hand.

OFF TOPIC chatter / Haloez / etc - not tolerated, especially at such an important meeting.  This is "all business" time.

Current Agenda:
Meet and Greet - anyone new be introduced to who's there, general OKgamers concept.  Order any food / drinks.

"Getting Started" - a revamp of the home page to simplify the process down to a "getting started with OKgamers" and then have 3 categories - Casual / Hardcore / Business.  In those walk through the various FAQ points they need to know, values in signing up for the forums, discounts, volunteering, etc.

OKgamers - "How to Help" adding in / focusing on clarifying the power and need of gamers asking businesses / events to have us officially work with them.  Helpin to prove value of our presence and potential increase in effectiveness, and fun of event.


YES, zach work on content

 - I think this is a concept that will be approved of, I simply want to 'think it through', get feedback, etc


OKgamers - the Volunteer Central charge issue. Do we continue?  
-- Yes - we have to start throwing at least a few events where we charge for OKgamers sake.
Potential bills

No more VC = Saif and others seriously being let down.  We have less to offer businesses, and cannot continue to help our college student volunteers get the credit they deserve.  While it's probably not "The end of OKgamers" - it feels like the potential start of the end to me.  

Charging for events = if we start charging money to take care of one bill, we should expand enough to take care of any bills, and consider having any event not started by a business or event - be one where staff is paid?
 - Review of potential bills
volunteering
hosting
storage

 - Review of potential savings / goals / options to build up funds for future issues
Promotion
Hardware

 - Review of thoughts on staff getting paid


 - what determines "payable staff" basis - 5 events?  Etc.
New class started OKgamers T.O.



 - Chart responsibilities expected from "paid staff" - flyer runs, 100% attendance of event, increased event sponsorship efforts, etc?
3 Flyer runs



 - Where to start, where to end - what basis do we charge on?  Non-requested, gamer driven only?  The reverse?  All?  Review realities of any / all  that panning out.
Create a form for business
We can be sponsored OR charge the Company

 - Discussion on effects on attendance?  End up just starving gamers?  CO naysayers, etc.
New motion have current inactive staff changed to supporter
Tighten up staff responsibilities and code of conduct

 - Changes in legal status - makes things easier or harder?
RESEARCH!!! tax issues

REVIEW:
Either decision - review of decisions chosen and the path it puts us on; is it worth it?
 - Pros
YAY change!
 - Cons
Community reaction

OKgamers - Official "Form for Help" for groups to submit - good/bad idea, what should be on there, etc.



OKgamers Business Policy - review of statements on forums - how to clarify the need of businesses posting their content, their thread and forum rights, and the zero tolerance policy for abusing business owners by anyone.
ZERO TOLERANCE NO HATE ON BUSINESSES AND NO SELF PROMOTION ON ANOTHER BUSINESSES THREAD

Censorship - completing the list, and review of current replacements.  "I <3 carebears"  lol



OKgamers - "How to Help" adding in / focusing on clarifying the power and need of gamers asking businesses / events to have us officially work with them.  Helpin to prove value of our presence and potential increase in effectiveness, and fun of event.


Sports Gamers - new section to the competition forums?
YES :D


-- If there's time left:

Previous meeting - review of notes

Open Floor - any concerns not discussed and brought up go here.
random polls?

--

It's an important step for OKgamers.  While not all fun and games, THIS meeting will seriously determine where we "go from here".  

If anyone is interested in being the 'notes taker' we could of course use it, please let us know here if you can.

Not showing up?   This thread is not intended for you to voice your opinion on it, so please do not post comments, thoughts, etc.  Mean?  We only allow online staff in the staff forum to really debate / change / etc how we think - else experience shows random chatter on a forum doesn't ever seem to solve much of the larger concerns.  HOWEVER - after the meeting has started you may post your comments, thoughts, etc - and we'll be able to review them then.  Post anything other than questions about the event, etc, before 1pm Saturday, and it'll just be deleted.

Why is a CO event posted?  Well technically, they do border on OK :)

Seriously though:
 - Soul Calibur Nationals will be held there
 - Formerly SSBB Nationals, and now a huge pot, will be there
 - This is an NVGA National event.

OKgamers, as one of the founding chapters of the NVGA, has always been backed by and worked with the NVGA.  We went to this last year, and hopefully we'll have a strong showin this year as well.

SO - while I know several groups of gamers are planning on going to this - I'm now getting a thread up for it!

Pulled from official thread: http://nvgaonline.com/Forums/index.php?showtopic=8109

This event?  Is like no other you'll see coming up.  When you think of gamers really involved in OKgamers - you think of some of the best gamers around, as well as the more organized, etc.  This is a showing of the best and brightest from 10 CHAPTERS, and various other areas.  Not to mention I GET A LOT of info from the CO chapter, as we work together a lot, etc.  So, if you want to see a well ran event - this is goin to be one (And we don't have to run it!  YAY!  lol).

In addition to the smoothness - this is ALSO where some of the SSBB players I went with last year saw "their maker" so to speak, and never played again ;)  So, serious competition? Oh yea.

$$$$$
There are THOUSANDS of dollars worth of bonus added to the various pots, and then prizes, etc - on top of that.

For Soul Calibur?  Literally some of the best competition assembled ever - will be there.

For Halo?  Names from the MLG like Soviet, and Team Crossfire.  Crossfire, the current champion of the NVGA as well.

Rock Band?  AN AMAZING setup - videos - http://www.youtube.com/GamesNVGA,  http://www.youtube.com/user/DeathoftheArcade


If nothing else - I'll be flying out to this, because it'll be that big of deal.  I seriously suggest you guys taking consideration - because from Fighter and tabletop to FPS - this is a big event, with everything from gaming to panels, and worthy of your time...

...also?  CO is hosting because they won the most events last year.  I won SC lol, but that was all for OK.  The NVGA chapter that wins the most competitions gets to host it the next year.  Jus sayin ;)

Oklahoma - let's represent.  Make sure you pre-reg with the link above!

--
 
The BYOS (Bring your own setup) tournaments can be anything but not excluding:
Call of Duty 4
Gears of War 2
Naruto
Bleach

Keep in mind, with the BYOC setup, there is also 'no excuse' for not having your favorite game!  If you have the interest, we've got dedicated space for you!


FPS gamers:
Please be aware that FPS event's require lots of hardware (TV's, Consoles, Controllers...) and right now we lack enough hardware to guarantee any FPS event. (unless you just want to play one on one) Since not everyone plays FPS games we can't fully create the necessary setups to support a full tournament. Last year we had a several staff members who stepped up to coordinate hardware efforts** for Halo 3. So far no one has done this, and remain in BYO status.

** A "Hardware coordinator" is someone who has helped take care of the getting the hardware neccessary for at least their game. This mostly includes finding enough gamers with the hardware to make an event run, and working with them to make sure it shows up at the event!!!

BOTTOM LINE - Anything not in the official list is BYO status - work with us to coordinate any efforts your thinking about and we'll go from there!


(Keep in mind - OKgamers is a site to let us know when things happen and try and network gamers.  We have a volunteer staff that help at events like this simply to help get the word out about the site, and how useful it is.  We only own what we personally have, thus the 'byo' mentality.)

So with all this in mind, we hope to see you guys there!

Hey guys - in the next few weeks OKgamers will have some printing needs, beyond our normal "Do you play games" flyer push.

(Speaking of, we've gotten 40,000 of those flyers courtesy of Metro Glow and Tokyo in Tulsa!  Check with R3ligion for OKC area, or myself for the Tulsa area on how to get those and help us pass them out!!)

Printing wise, we are needing cheap to free-ish lol, printing for flyers on a small run, but also some larger format posters. 

Printing credit, etc - could be added to the design to help offset cost of course.


Anyway - if anyone has any connections, etc - please let me know!

May 17th - Sunday we'll be doing the final Funhouse Monthly! 
(Final?  Interest patterns in the past show us this is best, also there will be PLENTY going on this summer, so our need to 'provide content' will be haulted, as there are multiple events planned this summer - more coming soon, keep an eye on the forums.)

Everything below the line is from the last monthly, to be updated shortly.

------------------------
Event -
Funhouse and OKgamers' will host a Street Fighter IV & Super Smash Bro's Brawl Monthly Tournament!

This month will again have an additional $100+ in cash thrown into the pot!  Read more below.

YES gamers, we expect if you show up at our event, to be familiar with everything this thread has pointed out :) 
(As, there is no way to KNOW about this event fully, without this thread.  Please take the time to read up!)


Why OKgamers helps?
We want to help out the SF4 and SSBB communities!  Also, monthly tournaments are held by some of the Tulsa area staff of OKgamers to get the word out about OKgamers.com - a site for Gamers & Businesses in Oklahoma to post gamer related events and tournaments, get players together, and go to find out what's going on in our area.  Tired of hearing Oklahoma has nothing to do?  OKgamers proves things are going on all the time!  Want to help out the OKgamers cause of spreading the word, so we actually KNOW what's going on around the area?  -
 - Read more about our Goals
 - Join our staff!
 - Learn how College and HS students can get community service through volunteering with OKgamers!

Location -
Funhouse at the Riverwalk
500 Riverwalk Terrace, Suite 100
74037
Map: Google Maps link

Questions about the new Riverwalk curfew?  Go here.


Games -
Street Fighter 4 - 1v1
SSBB - 1v1
(SSBB - 2v2 - if we have enough time; did last time, may not next time, etc.  See below on hardware!)


Times -
SSBB 1v1
3:00pm - 3:45pm - Setup and Sign up [HARDWARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 3:45!]
4:00pm - Tournament starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket [ WE WILL NOT WAIT!  Be on-time, back and ready @ 4pm please :) ]

Street Fighter 4
5:00pm - 5:45pm - Setup and Signup [HARDARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 5:50pm!]
6:00pm - Tournament Starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket

SSBB 2v2
AFTER SSBB 1v1.  If we can get SSBB 1v1 done by around 8, we'll consider doing a 2v2, after assessing interest, and hardware present; it all comes down to having enough machines to do it quickly - both the 1v1, and then the 2v2.


PRIZES -
SF4 - 60/30/10 of pot
SSBB 1v1 - 60/30/10 of pot   
(SSBB 2v2 will be free, unless all teams agree otherwise.)

$100 will be going into the pots for these games!  Our first event 100$ was thrown in by Funhouse, and just 1st place for SSBB got over $200!  More people show up, the POT GOES UP!


Cost -
Like most events, there is a location fee, and tournament fees.  Spectating?  Free.

5$ location cost - for those playing in a tournament (Think of it as the way to give back to them for hosting us.)
This gets you 10$ in tokens. [Tokens are Funhouse tokens, to spend on DDR, Initial D, Time Crisis, Soul Calibur 2, and other fun video games, as well as ticket games they have at that venue.] YOU ONLY PAY LOCATION ONCE AN EVENT.

5$ tournament pot cost.  Any tournament you play in cost 5$, and goes into the pot for 1-3rd.

TOTAL? =
Playing in SSBB 1v1 or SF4 tournament?  5 for location, 5 for tourny = $10
Playing in both SSBB 1v1 and SF4 tournaments? 5 for location, 10 for tournys = $15

OKgamers staff make no money doing this, that's not what this is about - go read our goals.  This is all volunteer, in the hopes of improving Oklahoma by networking through one site for gamers.  Don't abuse staff, or give us a hard time - as we aren't getting paid to put up with it :) 


SPECTATORS -
This is a public location, and of course watching is free.  However, only tournament entrants, and staff may use the machines.  Spectators may watch, but are asked to leave the machines to those playing.


Street Fighter 4 Rules:
TENTATIVE - we are watching what the SF community has to say.  For now we'll go with
Console - PS3 or 3360??  Hardware that shows up the most, wins this event.

Format:    2/3 Rounds, 2/3 Games, Double Elimination, 99 Seconds, No Handicap
Console:    Playstation 3
Rules:    If the players do not agree on a stage within 15 seconds, the match will be random stage select.

This means there are no bans on any characters.

Button Mapping allowed before the beginning of the match(?)
NO PAUSING - MAKE SURE you set your controllers before selecting a character!!

Banned:
Any infinite banned


SSBB Rules -
* 3 stock 8 minute time limit
if there isn't a winner by the end of the time limit, then the winner is whoever has the most stocks. If stocks are tied it is whoever has LESS damage.
* all items are turned off
* if there are teams then team attack is ON

* Remaining rules for SSBB can be found here - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php?topic=1770.0 *

**IF A QUESTION ON RULES ARRISES BEFORE A MATCH STARTS, FIND A STAFF MEMBER!**
Let us resolve the rules, and get you going again!


What you need:
We seriously suggest you bring your own controllers.  We may happen to have a few extra around, but it's always best to bring your own - less concern about your performance as well :) 

Can you bring hardware?  It would help out!  A "Setup" consists of a TV, console, game, controllers if possible and save data.  TV - 19" or above, tube preferrably, and remote if you can't change to input on the front.  SF and SSBB - FULLY UNLOCKED (SF = all available, SSBB 'more rules' and all 35 characters, and levels), and any controllers would be appreciated, however we encourage people to bring their own.  And of course, the game, console and any required cables. 

WANT TO HELP US CAPTURE THE EVENT TO PUT ONLINE?  Bring a VCR, etc!!


How you should act:
We are at a public arcade - please respect all around you, and remember your in public - so act accordingly.

Spectators and Players - absolutely NO interference during a tournament match.  No harrasing your friends or their opponent, messing with controllers or settings, etc.  When 2 people play each other, they are to be respected and observed, not distrurbed.  Please do not test us on this :)


What else can you do - Well, spread the word!  Remember, not everyone finds a flyer or knows about OKgamers! 

***REMEMBER, WE DO RELY ON THE PLAYERS TO BRING ENOUGH HARDWARE - what is enough?  At least 2 to 3 setups for SF4, and 5 to 6 for SSBB.  We will cancel a game's tournament if we do not have enough hardware that shows up ON TIME.(We ask hardware to be there typically 20 to 30 minutes before the tournament is set to start, see times.)  Why is this? OKgamers.com can only organizes events, yet as the front page explains we are not a company, nor do the venues we work with have everything.  Help us help you have a great event!


We reserve the right on ANY game to make on the spot changes to the tournament rules, such as a change to Single Elimination if there is not enough hardware, or too many people show up ["Too many" only determined by us not having the hardware brought to meet the demand in the time we have - be sure you understand that].  We have to be done no matter what at Funhouse by 11pm, thus the concern.  [Will we change?  Only if we HAVE to.  Hardware and you determine that.] 


Sharpen up your game, we'll see you soon!

Go out to your blogs and your websites and your myspaces - and link back to this thread - it helps - trust me.  Also, check out myspace and add us!

General Chat / Gaming Deals - your day to day finds to watch out for!
« on: April 24, 2009, 02:06:58 am »

So, we need a central thread to throw up the love for events that are giving away gamer deals, etc.

My first - 4/27 - in BA a grand opening giving away a wii - http://twitter.com/TheMidtowner/status/1598324631

Yay twitter?

Also a friend tells me several Guitar Hero titles are down to 10$ at Best Buy.

So, there have been questions over the years about why we do a few things the way we do.

 - Why do we put ALL TYPES of gaming events into the one Tourny forum?  Because OKgamers is all about networking, and no gamer plays just ONE game.  Has NO gamer friends.  When he's surfing through the Tournaments and Events forum, we want a gamer to see everything going on currently, so he can be up to date and aware to tell his friends!

(We know some feel this is flawed, but there are revamps coming to the OKgamers system that will please everyone on this setup, so that's not the discussion for today ;))

 - Why do we serve the "OK area" and not just OK only.  Well, Oklahoma gamers like to travel, and if it's in our immediate area, why not have it posted it up for the Oklahoma gamers to go to.  This gives some of our sister sites in the Dallas/FTW area a chance to post, etc.


However, when it's come to events without a PHYSICAL location, we've been very strict, as it falls under our "still planning" mindset, which puts it into the Hype and Planning area.

That however, isn't true of online events, they are virtual.

So - we've been going off this mentality - if it's online and OK area ONLY gamers, we'll let the post be placed in one of the competition forums, as of late the Local Players forum.  (That's fair in our minds because that's where your looking for local competition, and since locals will be playing online, it seems to fit.)  If the online event is open to anyone, then we have it put in the chat area - as it's general discussion.

We will not be putting online open events into the tournaments events ever.  It would open the site up to constant spamming, and confuse the most important forum on the site - the Tournaments and Events forum, the core of the site.

So, if it's an online event and Oklahoma only, where should it go?
Should we stick with putting it into the local players forum of it's orientation?
Should we give up, and make a forum for it?  (this seems like a NO, because it'd be more work, another forum to check, and we don't see them enough to warrant it.)

Or, should we continue with the policy of online = general discussion, and put ANY online tournament thread into the chat forum?


Gamers - let us know what you think by posting in the poll and of course by discussing!

General Chat / Gamer Bar in Tulsa?
« on: April 15, 2009, 02:52:17 am »

So.  If there was to be, a bar appear downtown.  Say, with classic arcade games, and pinball games adorning it. 

And if the bar had ticket games, that you could play and then...  buy beer with tickets...

...what would you do?  Frequent it?  Hate it?  Etc.

Obviously - the bar would be 18 and up.  It might be close to some awesome other places.  Etc.

VOTE IT UP, got a month to express.  Want to know the thoughts of the OK gamers!
