    The future of xG

    i will now reveal the true reason i joined this clan. i joined this clan to apply for co-leader so i could make this clan the best damm clan on the internet - consider it a neo-xG. unfortunately, my member application was denied under false pretenses so i am unable to apply for staff. friends, brothers, sisters, i call to you now to allow me to become the new leader of this clan and i promise you all fame and fortune; and here's how i'm going to do that: phase 1: culling out the week next saturday and throughout the weekend all of our tf2 servers will be populated to the max (32/32) because a steam announcement will be made which goes along the lines of this: "JOIN THIS SERVER OR YOU'RE KICKED FROM THE CLAN" indeed, those who do not show up over the weekend will be kicked, as well has most of the members of xG. Only the strong will be allowed to survive in neo-xG. 32 players at the time will fight in a free-for-all - like popular book hunger games. The one winner of each round of 32 will stay in the clan. phase 2: becoming the strongest clan in the world now we have only the strongest players in neo-xG. we take these players and form a competitive highlander team. as you may know you cannot instantly join the highest-tier division, so we're going to hack into the computers of b4nny's team and find nude pictures of them to use as blackmail. we then get on the roster via said blackmail and use our gamer skills to become the new strongest TF2team. phase 3: profit while to the outside world we appear benevolent and noble as a neo-xG tf2 highlander team, one night we take the world by surprise and start pub-stomping, HARD. only 2 hours of sleep every day, we spend 22 hours a day pub-stomping. the onslaught will be so great no one could join a casual game and leave spawn without being instantly killed. now we have tf2 at hostage, so we start making demands. first, valve must give us admin access to tf2. we use this to get shiny unusual hats. then, we make tf2 no longer free-to-play. now, everyone must pay 5$/hour of play. so you see, if you just allow me to be your now co-leader, xG can become neo-xG - a place of freedom, hope, dreams, and all the shiny hats and fortune you can imagine. WHO WILL JOIN ME? i have spoken

    On "Invisible Promotions"

    TL;DR posts galore, hell yes! Would like to first address one of OP's main points: no, in my opinion a player should not be given a ghost promotion based solely on their social status in the community- that is, the amount of which the player is generally 'liked'. For obvious reasons, this doesn't reflect their capability to moderate servers or to perform administrative duties. Yes, this is something that should be taken into consideration by the higher-ups because there are always two sides to a coin (eg. "fun" vs "serious" staff), but it should definitely not be a deciding factor nor should it be the 'go-to' precedence for whether someone is deserving of it or not. Ghost promos were typically reserved for those who "wowed" their peers and higher-ups. More than it was a pleasantry, it was a way for higher-ups to let a player know that they were exceeding expectations as a Member and that their efforts were being noticed to the degree that they could improve the overall server experience for players, not that they were just "likable". I say "was" because I'm speaking from past experience, however I'm confident that this still applies even today. With that said, I personally am not a huge fan of the situation where anyone gets that opportunity just because of connections; whether that be regularly playing games with a higher-up or just generally being friends. This is primarily due to the conflict of interest and generally bias nature of this sort of situation. Should there be a moment where a player [who is closely associated with any higher-up of the respective Division] is recommended for a promotion [and is interested in taking it], there should absolutely be a Staff application, at the very least as a formality. This is simply to mitigate bias in the process, and while it won't eliminate all bias it will certainly minimize it by giving the community an opportunity to present their opinions/concerns. Although there is something to be said for these instances where it seems like bias/favoritism rules the ghost promos. Those who work hard should receive recognition for it, but the sad fact is that this does not always happen and it can certainly feel like there is some sort of bias at play when others do. But it really speaks for itself: much like any other community-driven process, whether that be in the workplace or here at Xeno Gamers, an opportunity may or may not present itself and fall into your lap- it is not always based on some form of favoritism. You could be the hardest working person and not receive recognition, but at that point you need to ask yourself: did you voice your opinion? Are you actively making an effort to let the higher-ups know that you are deserving of it? Or are you simply waiting for it to happen. Consider even, that you may not play at the same hours that a higher-up may, thereby making it that much more difficult to be recognized. It's easy to scream "bias/favoritism", but know that it likely won't help you. Sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands and to simply own it. Yes, a ghost promo is a special case, but that should not make it any more desirable than outright applying for a Staff position. All-in-all, trust in your higher-ups to be making the right call/decision with minimal bias/favoritism- because believe it or not, they also rely heavily on you to provide your opinion, comments and feedback all the same, even in situations like ghost promotions. If it helps, keep in mind that they are unpaid, just the same as any other Staff, and that their best interests are for the community (which is more than I can say for my employer).
