Title: High Council Member Applications


Lamb Bug - May 27, 2009 11:06 AM (GMT)
With Star's departure, it's time for a new councilmember to be selected. If you're interested in the position, please fill out the following form to give us a brief sense of why you should be selected. Golden and I will pick the winner but don't be suprised if we ask you some other questions as well. ^_^

QUOTE

How long have you been in AL?

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL?

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before?

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly?

Why, all in all, should you be picked?


Every applicant needs to fill this out but Golden or I might ask additional questions as well. It's ok for those not running to show their support for a particular candidate but keep in mind that the current staff will decide their newest collegue. :P

Staff; I just want a sense of who's interested. ^_^

Runeter2 - May 27, 2009 12:50 PM (GMT)
I'm always interested in such spots ^_^

How long have you been in AL? About 6 and a half month

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL? I would try to make it so that people post less double posts, spam and such. Take care of clan chat and take screenshots if needed. Stop flamming and trolling around Ancient Legion. Try to stop fights. ( :| ) Make Ancient Legion a better place to have fun.

I would also try to make Al a better community for us all to enjoy (As we do now). And I'm always willing to help players in need when needed, I'll help them with all sorts of stuff.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before? I'm currently a leader of a pure clan (Another account) and i think I'll count this as Yes.

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly? Of course, why wouldn't i?
I will all my time i got visited and being in clan to help our community and members, mostly in my vacation about 2-3 weeks.

Why, all in all, should you be picked? Well, I'm active, nice, take care of people, always try to help team mates, stock up on food and potions for war, I never swear (OMFG and such are not counted), well pretty much those. I also got other resons that i just can't remember right now.

Techy - May 27, 2009 07:26 PM (GMT)
Ah, wth, lol XD

How long have you been in AL? Actual time spent...maybe 6 or 7 months.

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL? I am good at organizing events, are very active, and have the know-how to help with forums and other maintenance.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before? Yepp, old skool AL. :) (ex-ex-ex?-general/warlord )

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly? Yepp. During summer, I'll have no life.

Why, all in all, should you be picked? Because I know you love me Lamb, and I could be a great asset if you give meh that red-colored name :3

Starwolf Ftw - May 27, 2009 07:37 PM (GMT)
Good luck to whoever gets my council seat. I hope you do well. Do be sure that this is a position that you really need to embrace because what you are doing is going to be alot of work.

Darklord99 - May 27, 2009 07:40 PM (GMT)
i wouldent mind it but honestly im not one to put out much effort. So if it involves no effort sgin me up :yes:

Icewolf68 - May 27, 2009 07:57 PM (GMT)
How long have you been in AL?
I have been with Ancient Legion since December 13th, 08. So approximately 5 1/2 months!

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL?
Firstly, I would like to work a little more on getting out into the clan community, and increase better relationships with other clans. I would also work with these clans to create similar events to the multi-clan skilling contests we have held in the past.
To get a taste of new events I was thinking about in the multi-clan area, I was thinking of creating a boss fight challenge where both clans are in the same world at somewhere like Bandos GWD and we fight it out to see who can get the kill. We can do that for a best of 3, and then all merge into 1 clan chat, and kill bandos as many times as we can!

Also, I feel as though some behavior in the clan chat is not great, and every now and then a flamer gets into the clan chat causing some of the members in our clan to lose their cool when no one is in the clan chat to kick this flamer. If chosen for Council, I promise I will be in the clan chat more often to prevent this from happening, and kick any member or flamer where I feel necessary, based on their current behavior.

Finally, I would work closely with Event Coordinators and Warlords to ensure good turnouts to events, and not just have people say they will come, and then not show up. I believe if you look at the Chess Tournament event for instance, setting a timeframe for people to complete their matches does make an event run more smoothly. That is just one of the many tactics I have in mind for how to make a good event work and run smoothly

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before?
I was one of the leaders of another clan known as Jackals for approximately 1 1/2 years. We were a strong clan for quite a while, with many active members. We lost many members to the old PvP update and our numbers have never been strong since. The clan has basically collapsed now.
I have also held the Event Coordinator position for about 2 months now, running events such as the current Fishing contest and the Chess tournament.

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly?
Well if you've been on recently, you may notice that I do play a lot :P

Why, all in all, should you be picked?
I feel this position is a huge one, and it needs a good, strong, motivated leader to fill its shoes. Following Star's performance is a tough task to do, but I believe I am the right person for the job.
To be on Council, you have to be friendly and well liked and respected by all of your clanmates. In my opinion, I believe I'm friendly to all members in Ancient Legion.
Knowledge of how forums work as well as in-game experience is another key aspect needed for this position. I have been in clans on forums, run a few forums, and have played the game for 4.5 years. I feel as though I carry this key aspect that goes along with this position.

I love this clan, and want to help built it up to the best it can be. We have a lot of potential for greatness in this clan, and I believe we need another motivated and well respected leader to show Ancient Legion members what we can accomplish as a clan.


Thank-you for taking the time to read my application, and good luck to all applicants!

How long have you been in AL? Since The Beginning of the Times!!!

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL? I would increase our taxes, decrease benefits and start charging double the rates for taxis.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before? Yes. I was once the leader of Kuala Lumpur, but my 4 years ran out. And I didn't manage to strike a coup, so...

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly? No, but my clone army shall take care of that for me

Why, all in all, should you be picked? Cuz 1 r33ly pwn u 4ll!

> Now, seriously:
> Being a member of the High Council is not about "not abusing powers". When becoming a HC member, you need to dedicate most of your "clanning" time to the clan and its community. After all, the Council Membs are somewhat like JMods. They are the players' connection with the high-end jagex employees. In this case, the Council will be responsible for taking into account whatever the members are doing, saying, thinking, in order to improve the clan as much as possible.
> Having such a rank is not stricly for merit or honor. Becoming a HC Member is a way the leaders have to give hand-picked members a better way of doing their job, helping the leaders and, more important than anything else, helping the clan.
> To whoever becomes the next HC Member: Your job is not to ostentate the black mystic hat on the forums, and the silver crown on the clan chat. What you are supposed to do is to make sure that Ancient Legion reaches the Top (insert number here) Clan. For that, we need HC members that put all their effort to/for the clan.
> Bear in mind that becoming HC will require you to assert over important matters as banning users, warning members, and dealing with evetual issues amidst the members that might arise. And you are expected to do most of your job without needing the Leaders' assistance.
> I wish all the applicants good luck and I'm sure the Leaders will make the right choice when choosing the next HC member.
> Although filling Starwolf's shoes won't be an easy task, I know a few members that are not more than an inch from that, and I hope that they apply. If one of these members do apply, I'm sure the leaders will have a much easier choice. Let's just hope that not all of them apply, otherwise, the Leaders will have a hard time choosing among the best members I've seen around here.
> Good Luck to everyone.
> Ancient Legion - Glory. Valor. Friendship.

> PS.: That application is a fake one, btw. No way I'm running for HC :P Whatever I could do for the clan I already do by being a member and being the TA.

I would run myself, but I don't believe I have been in the clan long enough for you all to know me / trust me enough =( I will continue to be active in the clan, so maybe next time I can run.

If anyone cares, I would like to say that I think Icewolf would be an excellent HC member, and anyone who took the time to read his app would also see that.

Fivey Is Pwnage - May 27, 2009 08:56 PM (GMT)
GL to all applicants! Cant wait to see who will join me and Chuffa in the High Council!

Kerkennah - May 27, 2009 09:05 PM (GMT)
How long have you been in AL?

I joined in June last year.

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL?

I could help plan more wars for the clan, and especially more allied events. We need to get to know our allies better.

I also have some ideas about punishments and such, for people being abusive in the clan chat and on the forums. Some of it just goes by without anyone noticing.

I also thing we need to make new rules about attending events and such. I have quite a few ideas about already, and I have already used these ideas in the past and they have worked wonderfully.

I also can maintain the runehead, there seems to be some inactive people on it, and thats not good.

I also like to make sure that forums are in tip top shape. Closing topics and getting rid of spam quickly. We have lots of old topics here and I help in closing them to make sure that they aren't brought up. I have had over 600 moderator options. If proof is needed, I will provide it.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before?

Yes I have. It was when I was in the clan Crimson Vipers. I had become part of the council and I helped the clan alot. Soon I was promoted to council leader, and eventually even higher than that. The clan grew alot stronger. After about a year, the leader decided to close the clan, and everyone was done with playing runescape. Except me :P When I was in this clan, it was when I was on my account megaman0exe.

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your
contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly?


I always check the site alot during the day and I would love to help the clan out even more in my free time.

Why, all in all, should you be picked?
'

I have been in al almost since it began. I have lots of previous experiences dealing with a high position in a clan and I could put it into use. I have also been in a top 20-30 clan before, and I have lots of ideas to know how to become the best.

Techy - May 27, 2009 09:07 PM (GMT)
I actually have no intention of being HC, so gl to all those applying. :P

(ICEBAMA! ICEBAMA!)

Mudball99 - May 27, 2009 09:17 PM (GMT)
How long have you been in AL? - 1 1/2 or so months.

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL? - I would love to try and help to schedule war practices, which is one of my pet peeves so far. I think if we had some more practices, we could have a better war record overall. Less frustration = more fun^^. I also believe that i could help in general in the clan chat more, when ever an issue comes up there. Ive been told i know how to handle those things, often, and i normally feel pretty comfortable when taking responsibility in keep things straight. One last thing i would like to do, is try to schedule more events, or get the event coordinators too. We are only having like around 2-3 events a week at the moment. On the forums on Sal's (and I'm sure other places, also) is said specifically 4-6. 4-6 event would be perfect, regardless to how many people come. However does will be plenty satisfied. I like more events becuase i see a lot of people getting bored in RuneScape lately. It'd be great to have something to do.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before? - No, but id try my best for sure =). I have been of higher ranks on other forums, but nothing relating to this.

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly? - I do. All my hockey is starting to die die down to where there is a short break between me and try-outs and other events. That is the main thing sucking up my RL time right now. With the exception of my vacations, i think my activity will greatly increase over the summer regardless of who gets the position.

Why, all in all, should you be picked? - For the reasons above. I think im a active contributing (when i can) member. Ive wanted a larger role in the clan since the day i joined (hence, i got from trial member to full member in 3 days >.>), and this could be it. Id love to be a member of the council and would put all my heart into it.

Mudball99 For 09' Council Member^^

animal magik - May 27, 2009 09:55 PM (GMT)
How long have you been in AL?
About 5 and a half months I think (joined 14 December, a day after Ice :o)

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL?
I think we need more people with moderation powers active in the clan chat, as it seems everytime there is no high-ranked player in there that it just goes crazy, with few people having respects for others and their feelings.
I also would like to improve our forums - they are great at the moment, but still would be even better if they had some more features to stop spam and make sure everyone realises our forum rules.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before?
Kinda, Senior isn't really that similar to it but on some other sites in different environments, definitely. I've been on the top 2, 3 and 4 on council in guilds.

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly?
Yes, especially on weekends. I don't get too much time on school days but usually still manage an hour or more, which is good time to catch up on things and try my hardest to know what has happened (if anything) and if something has to be done about it.

Why, all in all, should you be picked?
I think I should be chosen as in the fairly short time I have been here, I have worked my hardest to make this place even better than it already is (great! :P). The community is great and the members are so friendly, and I think if I could get the next council position, then the decisions that are necessary could be accurately made, and for the better of the clan. My school assignments for the semester are coming to an end, and school itself has just 3 weeks (and 1 day) until I get 3 weeks off myself, so I will be a lot more active, everyday, so I can try and do everything required for the clan. I've also been playing for at least 3, 3 and a half years (lost count it's been so long >.<) so I definitely have a lot of experience, even though that doesn't mean much.
I really, /really/ would love to get this position, however I fully understand if I do not.
After all, I suck at writing apps. >.<
Good luck to everyone else going for the position.



There we go, my fail app. I suck at them >.<
Probably won't get picked lol, but I'll still try my hardest and won't give up, I'd really love this position, seeing as I love this clan so much. :blush:

Lord - May 27, 2009 09:58 PM (GMT)
i would put up an application but i just recently became an event coordinator and i love the job so i dont wanna change, ill just slightly influence the clan lol =P but good luck to whoever's participating and whoever gets the job :P

Kerkennah - May 27, 2009 10:17 PM (GMT)
Great applications everyone :yes:

I seriously think that two new council members should be picked to have a total of 4. The reason for this is because sometimes one would go inactive a bit, and it will help balance it all out :)

Imso Hot - May 27, 2009 10:28 PM (GMT)

animal magik - May 27, 2009 10:57 PM (GMT)
Nothing, nothing, just making sure you knew lol. :lol:
I have no support except for Imso :king:

And I agree with Kerk on having 2 picked, and I think Ice does too, just to make sure there's always more then 1 active.
However, up to you Lambeh, and Golden too I suppose.

Icewolf68 - May 27, 2009 11:02 PM (GMT)
I totally agree here with Animal and Kerk. Not to sound offensive to Fivey and Chuffa, they're great... but not active enough.

The Council member chosen would pretty much be flying solo in game, and I'm sure Star can tell you, that's no easy task. I think we should name 2 Council members, not 1... But all in all, its up to Lamb and Golden to decide. Just wanted to express my opinion

P.S. Thanks for the support guys! It really means a lot to me! :)

How long have you been in AL? A few months

If chosen council, what (specifically) would you try to do to improve AL? I want to be someone who is always there to keep the cc in line. We have alot of flamers in the cc when other ranks aren't around to kick, and I think I'm active enough to be there to kick them. Besides, I have diplomatic experience.

Have you ever held a rank similar to this before? In this clan no, in others, yes.

Are you willing (and do you have the real life time) to increase your contributions to AL to match the new rank accordingly? Yes.

Why, all in all, should you be picked? I believe I have the experience to be apart of the council.
