Quick, simple thread, almost more of a formality: I propose that members of the events team automatically get/are entitled to the clan rank captain in RSW (which gives them guest-kicking powers, as well as the ability to edit the battlefield), if they aren't already a higher rank.

Discussion point: what happens when the leave the events team? Do they:

  1. Keep captain
  2. Drop to lieutenant (losing battlefield edit) - my preferred option
  3. Drop back to what they were before (losing guest kick)

(due to inactivity or request - obviously if they turn out to be disruptive/a bad reflection of the wiki it's #3)


Support ET ranks and #2 - As proposer. Weird gloop @Gaz#7521 21:59, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

Support ET ranks and #2 - Being able to edit battlefields will allow more convenience and efficient event planning for the Events Team. --Spined helm SpineTalkBook of knowledge 22:43, August 25, 2012 (UTC)

Support ET ranks and #2 - Another benefit is easily identifying ET members. Red partyhat detail Pen Draig Talk King Black Dragon 01:33, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support ranks + #2 - Spine summed it up well. Haidro (talk) 09:15, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support #2 - If they need the battlefield tools, they can be given them through Gareth's discretion anyway, until that necessity is seen, leave them with guest kicking abilities only Broav pet Rhys Talk Completionist cape 15:57, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

Or my discretion or any other administrator's discretion. --LiquidTalk 22:17, August 26, 2012 (UTC)
That too. Broav pet Rhys Talk Completionist cape 22:56, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support 2 - I like it. --LiquidTalk 22:17, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

Support 2 - Seems like a good idea cqm 01:17,27/8/2012 (UTC)

Closed - Events Team members will revert to the rank of lieutenant after their tenure in the Team is finished. (Someone should probably note this somewhere so nobody kicks up a stink when their rank is dropped). 222 talk 10:37, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Reopened - Due to complaints, I am reopening this to discuss another point: what to do with existing captains. I dropped the two existing captains to lieutenant, as this is what I was interpreting from the second point: leaving the ET means dropping to lieutenant, implying if you're not on the ET you don't get captain. The other option is to keep the pre-thread status quo, which is that if a lieutenant is interested in battlefield editing they should contact an admin for the rank bump. Obviously I prefer the first, the less people who can edit the battlefields the less chance there is for someone to delete one we were planning to use in an event, and keeping the rank for identification of ET members. Discuss. Weird gloop @Gaz#7521 21:10, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Comment - Keep it so ET members are captains. The dropped ranks (what 2 people?) are hardly inconvenienced in losing their battlefield editing rights judging by the fact battlefields were rarely edited.

Comment - Lieutenants are still able to kick guests, right? Did these two lose any other privileges besides the Battlefield? User:Exor Solieve 23:13, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Other than battlefield edit, and one being a shiny silver star and the other being a shiny bronze star, there is no difference. Weird gloop @Gaz#7521 23:39, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
Support - No major change. Battlefield should be for ET anyway. User:Exor Solieve 00:17, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Support #2 - Makes the most sense to me. --Touhou FTW Zaros symbol 23:02, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Events Team should keep rights to the battlefield per Exor. I'll admit I'm not part of the clan, but the events team seems to be the ones that should be editing it. --Touhou FTW Zaros symbol 23:07, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

Closed - seeing as how pretty much no one has a negative opinion (or even cares) this is ET policy now. AWJNGRSBucket detailrwojy 16:21, September 10, 2012 (UTC)
