Poon Squad Member of the Month!!! (July): 8/10/2015 15:08:00

For July, we wanted to honor the contributions of one of our most tenured members.

Ever get into a jam in a team game? Not when this guy is on your side. He never declines a game, has one of the lowest boot percentages in warlight, and is always there to get you out of a tough spot.

Whether it's an all-nighter, a 1v1, or an 8v8, this player shows resilience and helps keep the mood up with his sense of humor.

Please join us in recognizing the latest Poon Squad member of the month:

We do put it in our clan forum, but we feel he should get recognition from other people too because he truly does deserve it. I suggest more clans do this. Its a great way to see who is contributing to their respective clan.

Moving to clans forum. Won't go into merit or not (it has been discussed the last two months).

what games? I've not seen people being booted by us. Sure there's plenty of autoboots, but that's where people presumably thought they were daily players but in fact weren't. Why do people sign up for a 24 hour game then complain when they are auto booted?

Because MOST games are 3 day autoboot. Not 1 day. Not everyone realizes that when they join a PS tournament.

I can tell you, that you guys do in your 3v3v3v3 1 min boots real time games, it is not autoboot either.

I have no problem with it though, it clearly says it in your game descriptions.

On topic: I can't see if these threads are serious about wanting to inform people, or just low level trolling to annoy people like MrHymen.

Well done jam, best pooner out there you should feel proud and honoured to receive this monthly honour (or is it every 28 days?).

Our games are faster, yes. But like Buns said we make it as clear as possible in the settings and description so it's not our fault if people then can't keep up. Also I tried to create a user voice to allow games to have 1 minute auto boot but Mercer shot me down :(

As far as the threads we've found they've had a positive impact overall, and it's a great way to recognize members. I agree with Pooncrew that more clans should do it as a nice little token of appreciation for those players who make big contributions to the clan.

I am not sure I agree more clans should do it. I brought this up before, but with over 100 clans, that is a lot of threads.

Most clans congratulate their members on ladder achievements, so doing a player of the month would be redundant there.



On one hand I think this has the potential to be some serious spam (which is why I don't care for it much, while harmless right now).

On the other hand it has more value than %99 of the OT threads, so I can't get on them really.

How does this have more value and 99% of Off-Topic threads? And what's the magical 1% that is more valuable than this white space?

Chris might be a part of the "Don't talk about politics on Warlight" brigade. Although I'm not really sure what the Off-Topic section is for if not off-topic things such as politics.

"Value" is a subjective term. What's not interesting to you might be very interesting to somebody else. It's kind of arrogant to say that a thread doesn't have any value simply because it's not within your personal interests.

True. I get where Chris is going though that most things in the OT forum are made by trolls like Lolicon

I'll agree that troll topics should universally be considered as trash. But I think that any topic which is at-least attempting to spark a meaningful conversation deserves to be there.

Well, I exaggerated for sure.

But, I am talking about threads like

-Last to reply
-insult me I like it
-why do people watch minecraft videos
-a message to australia
-how to make a poison potato
-what color is your house
-color of your color
-did you miss me?
-color of wall
-color of ceiling

So probably about half the threads there really.

IMO, the OT forum has it's place. If people want to talk politics and religion, go for it. I will have no part of it, but at least those are discussions. I hate the mindless drivel that people post for no reason. People treat this like their own person mind toilet where they can just dump their ideas. People do the same crap on Facebook. Who wants to know where you are eating, that you ran a mile, that you are stuck in traffic. Who cares? Stop and ask yourself if anyone cares about the crap you are about to post. Are you adding any value?

And I am tired of the excuse that it is in OT, so who cares. If we could ignore certain forums from the ALL Forums section and on the dashboard, I would be with you. But unfortunately neighbors dumping trash on their lawns is still an eyesore, even if it is not on mine.

End of old man rant. I just wish the vocal minority would grow up, that is all.

Chris, the thing is when most people hear "Off-topic" they usually take it to mean, "Talk about anything that's not illegal." That assumption isn't broken unless specific rules are given. I agree that not every thread on the OT is of high quality, but even the General forum encounters a bad topic now and again. The best solution is to just ignore and move on. I honestly don't see where your level of anger is coming from.

I can see where you're coming from Chris, it would be nice to have the forums customizable so you didn't have to see posts in a forum you don't use.

But that's not the case, and until it is you're going to have to live with people using the off-topic forum to talk about off-topic stuff.

Maybe take this thread elsewhere though, this was supposed to be a place for people to sing praises towards jamrod

Unbelievable, Chris I like you but you derail so many threads talking about forum organization that its borderline hypocritical. You do realize your contradicting your beliefs right? Also, not everyone care about ladder stats. There is more you can do for a clan than be high on the ladder.

When I was in CORP, we used the Clan Page/Titles for external recognition. You have to be wary of cluttering the Clan forum- low activity forums make it much harder for activity to naturally filter out spam (for example, compare the impact of /r/TodayILearned/new on /r/TodayILearned/hot to that of /r/Debate/new to /r/Debate/hot).

While I respect your interest in making sure your members get the recognition they deserve, given the trivial nature of the information here, you could perhaps make a single thread to consolidate your Member of the Month awards- perhaps even a single external-facing Poon Squad thread where you can also receive feedback on your clan and avoid having to repeat yourself everywhere. It would serve as a great resource for people interested in your clan, too, as it's a much more comprehensive document than your clan page. Just bringing that up as it was an idea I toyed with in CORP (when I felt that others might benefit from having a more accurate perception of our clan, especially given its dynamic nature).
