Final thoughts from DynamiteTiger
As we in the Upper Chain of Command have been reviewing the last year in VG there are some interesting stats we learned that I'd like to share. Our web site front page received over 64,000 hits. That is huge. Just think how much work our validation staff have done to insure our community is safe and secure. Our forums front page received a shocking 24 MILLION hits. That means you the members are here and clicking, reading, and staying engaged.
With a rocky start to the year we are seeing that we need to get back to basics with structure, and community growth. Over the last year we grew exponentially and with all growth comes the struggles of inadequacy in the forms of staff, organized lobbies, and the loss of needed protocols and checks to insure we keep the structure continually supporting members. Over the next few months you will see some slight tweaks and changes to VG structure and protocols so we can optimize our efficiency as a community.
For me the year has been full of amazing memories from DTFM to epic game time in the BF, Destiny, and Minecraft Divisions. This year my personal goal is to play more games with more people. I hope you all will follow my example. We have countless amounts of new members over the last few months and many who have not played with VG members even once. We all need to show our commitment, loyalty, and belief in this community with our actions. That often requires us to put aside our personal wants or needs behind those of the community, whether that's staying up late to do attendance reports or going out of your way to warmly welcome a new member.
We all came here for the same thing but sometimes forget that there are new members who are suffering from the same anxietys and needs we did at one time. The more and more we grow the more we will need willing individuals to graduate from student to teacher. Lets not forget that VG is not about the game, but about the people playing those games. Remember: The community will never be what you would like to see it be, unless you do your part in making it so.
If you have tried to reach out to me and feel like Ive brushed you off in the past year not making time for you, or feel Im inaccessible, please do send me a PM. I just as we all suffer from the over complications of real life responsibilities and do my best to prioritize every minute of every day.
From myself and the rest of the VG Staff we thank you all sincerely for your loyalty, commitment, and passion for this gaming community.
