I think each line item should stand on its own merits and not be piggy-backed in a package. If further discussion needs to be done on particular items then lets discuss it.

It appears that my last post did not take so I will try again.

Each line item should stand on its own merit and not be piggy-back or buried within a package.

So far we agree on this:
(italics green font marked texts are points from Verran)

PROPOSED RULE CHANGES
DRAFT 1


Using the feedback from the comments in Timeline/Changes/Expectations on the forum, I am creating a draft for proposed rule changes. The original bullet points in ITALICS for discussion from Verran are as follows:

1. Squad consolidation (I just emailed Cemada again)

DONE


2. Allow Junior Officers to promote non-Junior Officers (most importantly Cadet to Ranger)
Proposed rule change: Incorporated into the rank is the responsibility of all Junior and Senior Officers to complete any of the following tasks when the need is discovered:

Junior Officers are only permitted to promote a Cadet to a Ranger.

1. Initiating the process of an application for membership to the league.
2. Sponsor/vouch as needed and warranted.
3. Verify remaining needed sponsor and or vouches.
4. Verify remaining needed game points.
5. When requirements of a sponsor, vouches and the acceptance into a squad are completed, give the Associate a test to verify they have the knowledge to comply with our game rules and procedures. Also include in the test a general knowledge of our Code of Conduct, chat etiquette and procedures if a conflict occurs between members.
6. At the satisfactory completion of the test, promote the Associate to the rank of Cadet.
7. Log the result of the test if required.
8. If a Cadet acquires the minimum number of game points (if established) for the rank of Ranger, give the Cadet the promotion if the Cadet is in good standing with no complaints or disciplinary actions taken against the Cadet.

RECOMMENDATION:
When any member or maybe just the Junior and Senior Officers log into the Ranger web site, they are immediately taken to the membership page where they see an updated tabulation of Applicant and Associate stats. There needs to be a column added for completed game points so all information is available together. At the present time one needs to go to the current season stats and scroll down to find the Applicant or Associate in question.


3. Change vouch requirement from 5 to 3
Proposed rule change:
The required number of vouches required to qualify for testing for an Associate is 3.


4. Change open rules test to an "in-game" test only
This change is stricken.

5. Disband the Membership Council and replace it with the Junior Officers (question: do we keep Membership Chairman? I vote no; the responsibility rarely stays consistent)

Proposed rule change:
If No. 2 above is incorporated into the rules then eliminate the current Membership Council.

6. Associates are only eligible for full membership (Cadet rank) if they earn 25+ GPs
NOTE: This is in conflict with the desire to streamline and make it easier for an Associate to become a full member. This in effect extends the amount of time currently needed.
RECOMMENDATION:
Not recommended.

7. Cadets are only eligible for promotion to Ranger if they earn 200+ GPs

Proposed rule change:
Cadets are eligible for promotion to the rank of Ranger if a minimum of 100 game points have been earned.

NOTES FOR VERRAN:
Update rules & other pages with a "Membership Process" run-down
Update the rank descriptions with new/more responsibilities, across the board
(No change) Cadets cannot score games
(No change) Rangers, and higher, can score games
Notify all members of the changes once their done, and what their new responsibilities are.

Update: I am working on this, and most of it is done. I am doing some other items listed here on the forum, and fixing bugs, too. Maybe a couple more weeks? Thx!

Edit: I believe all of the changes are done, except updating the rank descriptions and notifying the Junior Officers of their new responsibility. We should also probably write up a tutorial for the Junior Officers.
