Player Council applications are open!

Announcements from the OriginsRO staff

Player Council applications are open!

Postby Mathy » January 11th, 2018, 5:07 am

Hello, players of OriginsRO!

As you may have noticed, the number of staff members isn't exactly optimal at the moment, with only 2 developers and 2 PR people. Due to our workload, from oRO to real life stuff, we can not always pay attention to all the demands and discussions that happen regarding what would be best for our server.

As such, we would like to try out an idea that some players suggested a long time ago that will hopefully bring our goals and intentions closer to your desires and demands. Since talking to everyone and explaining every little thing is quite time-consuming, we would like to hold periodic meetings (frequency to be decided) with a group of player representatives, where we will hear the complaints and suggestions that have sparked within the community, present development milestones that we are planning to achieve, and figure out what needs to be prioritized or added to the list. We will try our best to fit the entire staff into the meetings. Anything that is told to a Player Council member instantly becomes public, and it is their duty, as well as ours, to spread factual information in relevant channels. We know that several rumors arise, and it's quite annoying when an episode isn't what you were expecting it to be, and believe me, it's even worse when we are confronted for things we never claimed.

To apply for the Player Council, just email support@originsro.org from the email that your Master Account is registered with, and make sure that the "Discord Username" field of your profile is set here, for Discord is where the meetings will be held. In order to obtain the best coverage of the community, you can also vouch for another player, even if you haven't applied, so we know that the players we pick are those that represent you. The amount of players that will be selected depend on that.

Finally, please note that Player Council members are not staff, and will not be granted privileged information in such meetings. They are pivotal in improving communication between staff and players, bringing your demands closer to us, and making our intentions clearer to you.

That is all for now. As an experimental system, we are still to tweak some of its parameters, such as Council size, meeting date and frequency etc. We are very excited to try this out, don't be afraid to apply!

In case you are wondering what to write in the email, just tell us who you are, and which communities you communicate the most with, so we can maximize the coverage.
