COMMUNITY TEAM MONTHLY UPDATE LOG- February 2019

 

Introduction

 

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is enjoying themselves during this transition period. Myself and my wonderful Manager Ivory are here for the first every Community Team Monthly Update! Many of this may look familiar to you but we have a bit more to include and these updates will be ever-changing as some new systems are being implemented to the team in the upcoming months! February has been a good month for the team as they started getting settled into their new titles. However many of the big changes have recently come at the end of the month and you will see more throughout March. As 7.0 kicks off, the team is also kicking off a bunch of projects and content creation for Arcas that will be spoken about later on in this update. 😄

 

If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what the community team is, you can read more info about the Community Team’s policies [Here]

 

@Ivoryyy_ here 🙂

Buckle down because this might be longer than usual!

Monthly Application Data

 

This month we saw 146 new applications to LOTC. 131 New Player apps, and 15 alternate accounts.

 

This is a decrease from last month, though that is expected due to the awkward time with school etc. We anticipate that from now the numbers will continue to grow, especially shooting up around June/July due to school break. From these 131 applications, we saw an overall acceptance rate of 75.5%. This is an increase of about 2% from last month, which is great to see! We’ve got lots of new resources being worked on for applicants, so this is only expected to rise/

 

Going into more detail, 38.9% of applications were accepted with no changes needing to be made, 36.6% were accepted after being placed on pending for changes. 16.8% were denied after being placed on pending for changes, and 7.6% were denied straight away.

Now, onto the more interesting stuff.
 

Humans were once again this month the most popularly applied race, taking 49.5% of all applications (An increase of about 2% from January). Elves followed behind with 38.4%, an increase of only 0.1% compared to last month. Dwarves, Orcs and Halflings held the remainder, with 8.1%, 2%, and 2% respectively. That is an increase for dwarves, however a decrease for orcs and halflings.

Monthly Team Data

 

This month has been kind of crazy. We started out the month with the team switchover, and since then have been growing our team and training new members quite a lot. We’re incredibly happy with all of the new members- application response times have been lowered significantly! WIth these statistics also note that members were added later in the month, others were on hiatus, and our lovely Community Content Creators (Jenny_Bobbs, Bluee & Reko) are not required to make quota 🙂

This Month we’re back to a Quota Queen!

 

I’d like to congratulate @Roseways for making Queen of Quota for February,  with 20.55% of all applications this month!

What on earth is a Community Content Creator?

 

 

These lovely people are the central media creators for the community who are tasked with using their creative abilities to work together and create videos, images, streams, or any kind of media-related content for the community. So far they have been doing a wonderful job and have made some very lovely pieces that have been featured on our twitter! The first of the pieces was the tailor created by Jenny_Bobbs and Blue featuring art by Rwk0! They have a number of projects in store for the future keep your eyes peeled for that. Currently, w have a varied little team- with two amazing videographers/editors/media slaves and a fantastic digital artist.  If you have any experience in media and wish to contribute to this section of the team, feel free to make a Community Team Application!

Some of the work that this amazing group of people have been up to:

Cloud Temple Monks, and you.
 

You may have seen many of our lovely Community Team Members sporting monks skins and characters. This is one of our biggest projects that is launching for 7.0! CT Monks are going to be played entities by the Community Team Members whose duties are to assist players, primarily new players with getting acclimated to Lord of The Craft. There are Guides which are tasked with the responsibilities of greeting new players, getting them set up with basic commands, guiding them around Arcas, and getting them situated into the proper settlement which suits their interests. There are also Mentors, these members of the Community Team are tasked with the responsibility of helping new and old players alike how to further improve certain aspects of roleplay such as villainy. For new players, they have the Pots and Pandits initiatives they will be conducting in addition to something new called Player Intervention where they will be mentoring new and older players when it comes to first offense rule breaking or repetitive rulebreaking to help them understand the rules and to prevent them from getting into trouble in the future. There is more to come about this project as it is being fleshed out.

 

We’ll be releasing more information as to the specifics about CT monks a little later, and any special considerations regarding rules. Until then- feel free to interact with us, and if you see a new player needing assistance that you are not able to provide, just grab a Community Staff Member using /creq.

 

New Players in Arcas
 

This is just a short little bit I thought I’d add. Joining LotC and adapting to the very unique playerbase, roleplay culture and lore is incredibly difficult to begin with. On top of that, joining us whilst we’re in a period of transition from map to map is even harder. Please just be extra helpful to the confused new souls during this time and if you see anyone struggling please make a /creq to contact a Community Team Member!

 

 

 

 

 

Projects of February:

Does the community team see low numbers for non-human/elves as a problem? If so, any plans to help address that or is that something respective player bases need to address themselves by actively recruiting and stuff?

Yes and no really. We can’t exactly control which races new players decide to apply with- humans and elves usually look the most appealing, especially for those new to roleplay. What we are doing is amping up the media aspect with various racial showcases- as well as more interaction with nation leaders / players in the NPD. It’s also a given that people will be drawn to communities once on the server, most people don’t rp their originally applied character and will make new ones depending on which nations/groups they fancy joining. We’re definitely making an effort to help with this, but a lot is out of our hands.

That’s because they’re CA races, you can’t apply as them.

CA stands for “Creature application,” so, yes, technically, you can. Just not new players.
