A few small things about the kin, officers, discord and other related things.
Looking for 1 or 2 officers
While in the evenings there is usually plenty of help. We’ve gotten a request for a nighttime/US timezone officer. And during the weekdays it’s a bit sparse at times. In wotv we think of an officer as more of an administrative role then a catch-all. Be there for kinmembers that got questions or invites for alts etc. Keep kinchat civil and the occasional issue that might crop up. If you feel up for it contact Bearlee, Jarolas or Toffeecake.
Recruitment and event organisation is secondary. See belows part.
Regular evening activities Sep/Oct
Currently with most people waiting for U28 it’s a bit quiet, but at this time you can keep an eye out for the below activities. If you have ideas or request it never hurts to ask
- Monday – requestnight
- Tuesday unified on level run (shenstone)
- Wednesday squirle night (deed/traitpoint/big battles)
- Thursday weekly reset
- Friday usually some Remorchant
- Saturday/Sunday Fun run and raid
Events and other grouping
Everyone is free to organise and run whatever they’d like in kin. For certain types of grouping the kin can help as well. While that daily run you’re gonna do in 2 minutes wont benefit from it that. Others can. Options for these are at this time.
Message of the day – Planning a larger run let an officer know and they can add it to it.
Discord – Raid and sign-up channel (raid and larger attendance required events)
Discord – Game and event channel (planned runs with no signup needed)
Discord and facebook – Grouping (short term run planned)
Discord, facebook and allied channels
Speaking of which. There are several ways to keep in touch with each other for news, events and grouping.
Website – http://exploremiddleearth.com/
A permanent spot for news and updated info about the kin, channels and event information. Discord integration being worked on.
Discord link – discord.gg/zkNha4m
By using this link you will join the discord and able to see Kin and server and Guides and info. For access to chat and voice channels you will need a Kin member or ally/friend role assigned.
Alternative to Discord if you dont want a seperate client installed. However at this time most short-term grouping happens through Discord. Larger events are posted on both sides.
Allied kins and channels
At this time Unified is userchannel for our allied kin with Everlasting Hope. You can use “/joinchannel unified bond” command ingame to enter this. Invites for runs will usually be posted here.
The secondary channel was MSA, but after the channelwipe and changes in their kin this has practically been unused.
Discord usage notes
Current user roles
- Everyone -Visitor with access to public channels and information
- Allied or friend – Currently same access as kinmember
- Kinmember – Full acesss to all channels
- Event – Create and modify Raid and signups (officers + Ath and Freanix atm)
- Officer – Ingame officers with moderator access
- Certain bots – Titan embed for website and Raid organizer for Signups
For raids and other instances it very helpfull for players to signup to let someone know which class they’d like to bring or if they can’t come at all. At this time Sign-ups get invited first. These arn’t to be used to reserve a spot. If you know you won’t be able to come set your attendance to No or maybe.
At this moment you can sign up with any class (preferred class), Maybe and No entry. In the future there will be any class. This has been chosen as the least complicated option instead of Class roles with other plugins.
