Lady approached me in saying that due to known circumstances she and Eric shall not be active for some time now. She also asked me if I could take on her role of Leadership. And to me I thought that even tho I did think I would do a good job now at it, something better came to my mind. I understood that I just could give @punisher a very UNIQUE, amazing and great opportunity to become the greatest leader HE could be, instead of what I could be! @punisher I congratulate you as the sole leader of HoP and the community! YOU DESERVE IT AND YOU HAVE OUR FULL BACKING AND WE ONLY WISH FOR YOU TO BE FAIR, JUST AND BRING US TO THE GREATEST TIMES AT HOP EVER! IT IS YOUR HOLY DUTY AND YOU OF ALL PEOPLE DO DESERVE TO TO STEER OUR SHIP THE RIGHT WAY! YOU DESERVE IT MY LEADER I CONGRATULATE AND SALUTE YOU AS YOUR LOYAL DEPUTY!------------------------------------------------------------------- This all brings me to another point which is very important. All that you need to know about ranks and what they mean at HoP is written here: http://houseofpainserver.co.uk/community/threads/hop-jurisdiction-constitution.1838/#post-25107 To explain in short a person can only be in management if he/she continiously invests time into his/her duties and by that virtue is given a rank of Sysop on the server as well as Staff rank on forum. They also get access to head admin chat where all the manipulations happen lol (kidding ofc)! However only Leaders can decide if a person gets administrator/moderator rights on forum,- in this case @punisher. But in short the difference between a leader and a person in management is ONLY in that a Leader has the only power to execute strategical decisions for HoP. Meaning management can ONLY suggest strategical directions for HoP (as any member in HoP basically including the leadership), but only Leader can decide to implement these decisions or no. The similarity between a leader and a person in management is that they both do specific jobs for community that are not only connected with playing and forum activity, meaning they invest extra time into specific duties for community as an example that is described in this topic: http://houseofpainserver.co.uk/community/threads/leaders-managment-roles-responsibilities.737/ NB! ALSO VERY IMPORTANT! ANY MEMBER OF HOP CAN BECOME A PART OF MANAGEMENT IF HE PROMISES AND DELIVERS ON DOING DUTIES THAT ARE IN DEMAND RIGHT NOW OR THAT HE/SHE MAY SIMPLY CREATE THAT ARE NOW ESSENTIAL TO CLAN (For example before we hadn't had Youtube channel, I started making videos, it became important, so I am in the management etc. no matter if I was simply in the clan and not even an admin etc.) NBB! Also I do want to tell one more thing. As an exception any ex members can APPLY AS WELL!!!!!!!!!!!! For example @BlastorZ and @Storm and even @Del!c (had done tournaments) had many many talents and skills we need right now as for example now we don't have a scrim leader nor additional server manager, nor active tournament manager anymore. Just to get that monkey off our backs don't worry guys we shall have separate jobs from each other and only consult punisher on new strategic ones, not execute the decisions. So meaning there is basically 0 opportunity for conflict in this. Everyone simply does his/her job and does not interfere with other person duties. Example I create Mapcycle, but I do not interfere with its implementation etc. Punisher is our president in strategical decisions we are ministers handling each of our jobs!!!! Right now as Lady and ScarZ are taking a break we have the following duties that became free (feel free to suggest yours if you wish)! We need: A scrim leader. Scrim leader can also have a co-captain/captains or a deputy etc. Social media handler. We need to set up Gametracker page, facebook official page, twitter page, all that has been destroyed by @Snake.uK. We need to restore it and a person who can post about us and our events, videos etc. there frequently, like try to make a post each day to keep it fresh and exciting! As written in promotional/demotional/kickout policy http://houseofpainserver.co.uk/comm...rs-clanlist-as-of-04-04-2017.1594/#post-21059 only leaders handle them, but as an exception since @punisher doesn't play that many hours on our main server, we shall have one member of the management handling ONLY PROMOTIONS (not demotions/kickouts) under strict punisher supervision. He/she will have to monitor that all ranks are correct on servers and are given properly and promote and handle promotion suggestions as well. So this candidate has to be very active on servers. I shall take this job if nobody else will. Tournament manager/ Events creator. Besides me and Punisher we need one more and this one has to create a tourney or event right away and keep doing so, they don't have to nothing too grandeour like MK or eShoot, but they have to be done on at least single event/tournament basis constantly to offer people more than just Clan Nights, Scrim Games and Main server.
