How to be a good Squad member (For newbies or maybe not).
Ok, that may sound stupid, it is only to donate a lot isn't it? Well, that may be the most important part, but let's dissecate the behavior a little bit more.
There are some basic rules a SC leader is looking in players to make part of a nice squad team. It may not be just about medals but about other things that may be plain certain for you or not as i've seen before. In my actual squad, one of 3 squads, the leader will not hesitate to remove infrequent players, even if they got 6000 medals or simply 100 medals. Let's take a simple look... .
Buenos Dias, Senor Hepp.
Everything you say is true. Only the guilty would be offended. They should be offended.
The inability to communicate effectively on the game notwithstanding, I have made it clear to all squad mates that donating is not an option, and I quickly reward those who do. I promote at 100 donated (it used to be 50). I have made it clear that failure to continue to donate will result in demotion, and "gently" urge squad mates to donate only to those who donate.
We are a relatively new squad with the highest medal count belonging to a member with just over 2,000. I have just under 1,000. When I first started the squad, our highest medal count belonged to a member with 750+. I was waiting for my top mates to exceed him before I remove him for inactivity - nearly 4 months now. When my fourth place member moves to third, the Invisible One will be a former member of Eulippia. Yes, it is only a game, but I see it also as an opportunity to help folks understand how life really works. I would rather have less standing with a few solid mates than more with a bunch of squiggly-wigglies.
My challenge now is getting folks to join this forum. I think I also need to set up a facebook page for the squad. I don't think they understand the importance of communication in any endeavor whether it be leisure or labor. I have already made it a prerequisite to squad membership (that they join here). It is the existing members whom I am trying to nudge.
In life, sustained success only comes through community. One has to be able to work with a community of like-minded men and women to accomplish anything great. This is good practice here.
Good words, Senor Hepp, good words!
