YOU are Invited to
The Fleet-Wide Squad of the Month Meet!



By order of the Council of Admirals, after completion of the competition portion of the Meet, there will be a drawing at this month's SotM for:


PRIZE GIVE-AWAY
:!: 20 Million Energy Credits :!:


The scheduling of the MAY meet is now OPEN.


Hello All!
Time to schedule the next meet!

    The leading option is Saturday the 14th.

    The other choices are: Sunday the 29th. NOTE: I have weekend conflicts this month with a work obligation on the 21st; a play I am in on the 8th, 15th, 22nd; and my niece's wedding in Duluth on 28th. So optional choices are limited to only one this month. Even on the 14th I will have to leave early, due to a play performance that evening. Scheduling will close on Monday, May 9th, to give enough notice if the 14th is the date.


Scheduling Rules:
Post your scheduling choice in a reply below. Note that dates you say you cannot attend are more important than the dates that you say you prefer in deciding the date of the meet. We are trying to get the highest turn out of all squad members for the competition and prize give-away in the first half-hour. Thus, if 5 people prefer a date but 1 more can attend only on another date, then the date on which 6 can attend will win even though 5 of the 6 preferred a different date. It is assumed that you can attend all the date options, unless you clearly state otherwise in a post below or have communicated that fact to me directly.

Extra weight is given to the votes of squad captains, squad XOs, and anyone who is actually committing to showing up at a time (as opposed to "maybe" showing). The date and time chosen depends ultimately on who wants to participate and who will actually show up. Be sure of your commitment when requesting a date change, not showing up on a date that has been changed to accommodate your schedule will mean your choice will get less weight in future picks.

What is Squad of the Month?
The Squad of the Month ("SotM") meet is a monthly fleet event which starts with an inter-squad competition to determine the Fleet's Squad of the Month. The competition is followed by group activities which may include: build advice, challenge match PvP, teaming up to cruise the TFO queues, and just hanging out together on Discord. We are a casual fleet, and participation in any portion of SotM is optional.

Rules for Competition: The winner of the competition is determined by attendance during the first 15 minutes of the meet ("the grace period"). The squad with the most members logging into the Discord channel during the grace period wins. However, if any squad shows up with its full membership during the grace period but still does not have enough numbers to win the competition, then the result will be a tie between all squads with their full membership attending and the squad with the largest number of members attending. If there is a tie, then the winner of the competition will be determined either by dice roll (".roll" using the Security Bot on Discord), or by any other method agreed upon between the tying parties (e.g., PvP match, trivia question, etc.). Any method other than dice roll for resolving a tie, must be approved by the convener of the meet (normally me) as being swift enough to be resolved simply without taking up the whole meet or leaving the winner undetermined beyond the end of the meet.

We have a bit of a conflict now between two squad CO's with regard to the two options available. Looking like we might change the leading date to Sunday the 29th, but Saturdays have always been favored and scheduling remains open. More input could easily make a difference at this point.

Well, with another squad CO off for Sunday the 29th, Saturday the 14th is now more firmly the leading option.

Scheduling has been open now for five days. Conflict was voiced by a squad CO to the proposed date, but two squad COs had conflicts with the optional date. Therefore, the next Squad of the Month meet will be:

Saturday, May 14 at 19:00 UTC (i.e., 8PM BST, 3PM EDT, 2PM CDT, 12PM PDT) :!:


The scheduling of this month's meet is now CLOSED.
