  1. We are updating the rule on Jailbreak to address an issue that has been persistent. It appears some people are attempting to afk for more than 10 hours at a time. This is causing round issues due to guards not knowing where they are (even when said, it still is delayed according to some round logs). Therefore, we will set AFK players to Spectator after five minutes of AFK on server. After 5 rounds of AFK no response, we will kick them. This is to address the issue we're running into for now. I plan to fix the spectator system so it doesn't move them out of Spectator after map changes, then we will address the rule again. Heliuxen

    I got to thinking about leadership types, also it is a part of a class I am in right now. I wanted to share some interesting types of leaders with you guys, and see what you thought you most correlated with. Laissez-Faire A laissez-faire leader lacks direct supervision of employees and fails to provide regular feedback to those under his supervision. Highly experienced and trained employees requiring little supervision fall under the laissez-faire leadership style. However, not all employees possess those characteristics. This leadership style hinders the production of employees needing supervision. The laissez-faire style produces no leadership or supervision efforts from managers, which can lead to poor production, lack of control and increasing costs. Autocratic The autocratic leadership style allows managers to make decisions alone without the input of others. Managers possess total authority and impose their will on employees. No one challenges the decisions of autocratic leaders. Countries such as Cuba and North Korea operate under the autocratic leadership style. This leadership style benefits employees who require close supervision. Creative employees who thrive in group functions detest this leadership style. Participative Often called the democratic leadership style, participative leadership values the input of team members and peers, but the responsibility of making the final decision rests with the participative leader. Participative leadership boosts employee morale because employees make contributions to the decision-making process. It causes them to feel as if their opinions matter. When a company needs to make changes within the organization, the participative leadership style helps employees accept changes easily because they play a role in the process. This style meets challenges when companies need to make a decision in a short period. Transactional Managers using the transactional leadership style receive certain tasks to perform and provide rewards or punishments to team members based on performance results. Managers and team members set predetermined goals together, and employees agree to follow the direction and leadership of the manager to accomplish those goals. The manager possesses power to review results and train or correct employees when team members fail to meet goals. Employees receive rewards, such as bonuses, when they accomplish goals. Transformational The transformational leadership style depends on high levels of communication from management to meet goals. Leaders motivate employees and enhance productivity and efficiency through communication and high visibility. This style of leadership requires the involvement of management to meet goals. Leaders focus on the big picture within an organization and delegate smaller tasks to the team to accomplish goals.

  3. I'm so proud of everyone. So many requests to help, you guys are great. You're ALL making Hearthigen great, let's continue on the path!

      I'm So Proud Of You Man !!!

  4. Resolved! Savage and I spoke. He will be assisting in some way, we will figure this out. Ness, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will be your official OSP Trainer. When are you usually on and playing?
  5. Hearthigen, Here is a quick recap as to what the long meeting last night was about, and what to expect for the future of Hearthigen! Two Owners were moved to Head of Department / Server positions TBD by tomorrow. This is due to the need for them to assist in different areas, whereas where they were it was not conducive for us as a community. We need strong leaders in strong positions, this will allow this to happen. Co-Owner ranks abolished, all Co-Owners moved to Heads of Department / Server Most were already there, no big change. For those not, they will choose by tomorrow as well. As aforementioned about Owners, it seemed arbitrary and we need our strong leaders in these positions. Heads of Department function as main force The Heads of Departments will function as the "Co-Owners" once had. They will essentially push the future of Hearthigen. You will go to them for the future, and speak with them about issues. They will respond to posts in regards to suggestions and many other things. This is what council is. Return to the Community Suggestions Base We have somewhat moved further away from accepting suggestions, and have become more divided in our responses towards them. The recent change-up is meant to help that, but our mindset will change that too. As always, the players come first. We became a bit clouded for just a little bit, but with our talk last night I felt like a lot of things got cleared up. We love you all, you guys make Hearthigen possible. Let's continue on this path, and let's spread positivity and love. Community MATTERS When Hearthigen was founded the community was the most important thing. Once again, we are taking on this mindset. The community is what we serve, and with this we will move in new directions to help ensure that the community can grow in positivity. Suggestions Response When a suggestion is made, Council will respond openly and discuss the idea. This has been seen today, and it will continue throughout time! Creation of Community Development Committee (CDC) We are now creating the Community Development Committee in order to ensure that community change in a positive way does happen. We hope that this department will be one that we can always rely on. They will enact change, and they will ensure that the council discusses the issues at hand in a positive, more constructive manner. The "No Demotion" motto It seems to have become a trigger word lately... The word demotion. This has been used in many ways as a threat, I would say even at my own fault. With these changes we hope to address the issue at its core. Demotion is a last resort, and something that means that there was no coming back from that decision. You will know when you're being demoted, it shouldn't be sudden or even a surprise to you. You will receive adequate warnings, and effective warnings at that. We hope to promote "position security" more than anything. There should not be fear, in it's place, let us put love. Transparency This word has been floating around, and for a while I was confused by it. I understand now what you all mean by it. You all want to know what's happening in Hearthigen, and why it's happening. With this, the CDC will help us be more transparent, and our council will be more forthcoming. Even myself, a person who is more transparent about his life than what he does here, will be more forthcoming. Hearthigen, you're my family. I have always had your best interest at heart. While I know there have been plenty of times I have failed you, I hope in these endeavors, and in these changes, in some way I have helped preserve the Hearthigen legacy of FAMILY. I cannot do this alone, I need all of YOU. YOU make Hearthigen GREAT. Heliuxen
  6. vote

    Marko and Moon are no longer Owners, they will be taking over as heads of a server or a department instead.
  7. Excited for the changes here. We'll make Hearthigen better yet.

  8. With the new system it was suggested we change the name of the "Owner" rank. With that, I'd love to hear opinions. It is only ForgetfulCat and I labeled as Owners. Therefore, what are your thoughts on changing the name to "Founder"?
  9. I hope you laugh at this :) 

     

  10. There are a ton of people with birthdays. Don't forget to wish them happy birthday, too!
