Introduction

 

Hey folks, I hope everyone had a wonderful October and hope everyone will have a great November. I’m going to go ahead and get everyone up to date on the Application Team before moving forward to statistics, app King/Queen, and all that good stuff. To begin, during the month of September I was declared the Application Team Director with the departure of @BritBritt. She was a fantastic director and gave her all to the team. If you’ve not already thanked her for her hard work, don’t be afraid to do so. I’m sure she’d appreciate it. Anyhow, the month of October proved to be a difficult one. We gained and lost a fair number of members, promoted managers, and were forced to put projects on hold. However, we’ve managed to create a solid base for the team. After bringing on a fair number of hardworking individuals who’ve already gone above and beyond to prove themselves, I’m sure the team will begin to thrive. I would like to take a moment to both thank and congratulate @tenreduxand @Ivoryyy_for their hard work and promotion to managers. Finally, the Application Team is still looking for new members of the team as well! If you have a passion for helping new members grow within this community, want to get your feet wet with staff duties, or perhaps have a yearning to return to the front lines, please don’t be afraid to post an application.

New Player Data

 

Moving into the bread and butter of this update we’ll go ahead and get the gathered data for October put down. Unsurprisingly, humans were once again the most applied for race at 42.7% while the elves followed behind at 33.6%. Dwarves followed up in third place with a resounding 8.5%, orcs followed with 4%, and halflings brought up the rear with 1.5% of applications sent their way.

Our application rate has dropped in comparison to past months, falling to 265 total applications. There are a few factors that come directly to mind as this number is put down. It is exam season, as we’ve had a few members step away from the team on hiatus to handle such responsibilities. The coming months will also continue to see a heavy emphasis put onto schoolwork. Also, guest applications have officially been removed from the server, thanks to @Sporadic. In the past, guest applications made up a bulk of our applications themselves, with their removal it is only expected to see a drop in overall numbers while folks adjust to our return to the current system. With the removal of guest applications, our acceptance rate has skyrocketed to 79.6% as expected, while our denial rate has dropped to 20.4%. This month we’ll be testing a new multi form to gather data and responses, courtesy of @Time Lady of Kittens. Our most accepted timezone was American with 64.9% of incoming players, European timezone players came in second with 30.3%, and Oceania had a total of 4.8% of incoming players.

Team Data

 

This month was a difficult one, with all the changes that transpired leading up to my Directorship and the additions we made. Many members were on hiatus handling IRL responsibilities, so it was a bit of a crawl. Without the help of our very own @sophiaawe’d of found ourselves far worse. With that being said, let us go ahead and announce our Application King/Queen. This month, with a total of 75 applications handled, sophiaa takes the crown as our Application Queen!

Going into November and December, the team will be focusing on revamping and bringing to life quite a few projects that have been put on hold with the changing of leadership. We’ve already put together a fair number of folks ready to put the time in to finally get the Tailor’s Guild rolling. Aside from that, sophiaa and Ivoryyy_ are currently working on large scale New Player’s Guide while BronCloch is putting her time into an Application Guide. We’ve a few other things in the works as well, which you lot will be seeing soon enough. Sit tight and get ready folks, we’ve got a fair bit coming at you!

 

A Personal Thank You

 

Throughout my time on this server, I’ve put myself out there numerous times in the hopes of managing to make it onto a Staff team to help out where I can. If it weren’t for @Skytaking his chances with a banned player, I wouldn’t be where I am today to help out. @BritBrittalso put her faith in me and relied on me to help this team when she was unable to do so herself. Thank you so much for trusting me, Brit. I’m not going to let you down. Aside from that, I also would like to thank @Knoxfor helping this team when it was likely at it’s lowest. Without him there I’m not sure I would’ve been able to get it rolling in the right direction. The Administration has done great work in helping me step into the position to ensure I am well trained, so thanks very much for that @Fireheartand @FlamboyantRage. @SeventhCircleis appreciated for existing. A special thanks to @sophiaafor carrying this team through the month of October, as we were in a rough spot activity wise and she really helped out.

If you have any ideas on what you think we/you can implement to increase the applicants to these races, don’t be afraid to let us know.

I’m frequently disappointed in the player retention smaller races like halflings have when it comes to new players. For next map it would be grand to have a collaboration between halfling leadership, event actors, and the AT so as to make sure that new halfling players don’t just enter the village, look around for a few moments, and then leave assuming nobody plays the race/the server.

 

Edit: Do you think a sort of “Collector’s Guild” could work well in Dunshire? The idea would be that it would encourage new players and other halflings to go out and do things outside of the village when nobody else is online instead of just logging off

Throw me a message on Discord, I have something in mind similar to that but not exactly the same. Might be able to blend the ideas.
