Huge Update for UAF JSOC
Ok guys, I had a real long discussion with Brigadier General Vasco Ferreira about the UAF, more specifically UAF JSOC. And guys, all I can say is this is sad. Really sad. I first asked him about how many days of not being online in the guild counts as being inactive. He told me 2 weeks. So if you have not logged in in the past 14 days you are officially classified as inactive. After looking over the guild, 21 of the 34 members of the guild are inactive. There are even alt accounts in the remaining 13 active people, meaning our active size is just over 10. Guys this is unacceptable. Our guild could progress so much more if we had active people on.
Just to go over what it means to be inactive, it means you keep your rank, but you lose your position in the fireteams you are in. So if you used to be lead of a team, you are now revoked of a position and placed into the "Inactive Pile". Someone else has to take lead. Even if you do come back, your previous place is not assured. You may be reassigned. I have updated the roster on the United Armed Forces Joint Special Operations Command page, and that is the most up-to-date roster. If you are in the inactive category and log back in, you are still considered inactive until you contact me and tell me you are going to start to be active. I repeat, you will remain inactive until I am personally notified. You can do this through in-game mail, my message wall, or chat. Once this happens I will contact and officer and see what your new position is.
On another note, our guild bank is lacking. We need more funds. This will be used towards funding our stronghold and future flagship and anything else the guild needs. Almost no one has been donating, so Colonel Derx came up with mandatory donations EVERYONE active must donate, and it was approved by Brigadier General. It is dependent on your level and must be donated weekly. If you do not donate, punishments will be dealt, however they have not been decided on yet. Also, someone will keep track of these donations, but that person has not been decided on yet. I will get back to you on this later, and the mandatory donations do not take effect until I get back to you. The donations are:
Levels 1 - 4 = no donations
Levels 5 - 10 = 2,000 per week
Levels 11 - 30 = 4,000 per week
Levels 31 - 50 = 10,000 per week
Levels 51 - 55 = 20,000 per week
Levels 56 - 60 = 30,000 per week
There are no exceptions to these rules, and remember this is just the minimum, you can donate more. And the money required is not even that much, so there shouldn't be any difficulty. If you are having trouble finding a way to get the money or give it to the person you need to give it to, contact me in the ways mentioned above.
Brigadier General Vasco has initiated a UAF-wide vote for change of leadership for 2 months. This means the leader of UAF will be changed, and it will be decided by a vote from all UAF members. The vote is here. The United States Marine Corps does this, so we are trying this out too. However, it is official so be wise who you vote for. The vote ends on October 29th.
Colonel Derek will now lead guild activities every Friday and Saturday. The guild activities will be from 16:00 - 18:00 central time both Friday and Saturday. On Fridays, it will be guild meetings. On Saturdays, it flashpoints. This will happen every week, so I will not be creating individual messages informing everyone of each guild activity.
Also, Colonel Derek is starting boot camp again, so if you have not participated in boot camp or SOI, please contact him in-game or leave a message on his wall.
Look overall, I don't know what you guys are doing. I'm sure its important things like school work, homework, jobs, family-related events, or whatever, and I won't force you away from those nor do I condemn you for those, just keep in mind our guild cannot progress if you are not active.
All these things have been approved by Brigadier General Vasco Ferreira.
