Exciting new forum!

Cool idea for the new forum. Looking foreward to seeing what kind of stuff goes on in here. Maybe representer tournaments in the future!

Also is this gonna be exclusively for reps?

One of the things we have in the works is indeed Representers-only Tournaments. To answer to the other question: the forum will be visible to everyone.

The reason is because there will be new sign-up thread and FAQ about Representers to get more people excited to join us.

We're planning to grow the group of Representers and get them to become a active part of this community. Kind of like another choice for Subscribing if you want to help the site out.

Yes it is. We are looking forward to hearing some discussion from non-Representers as well as current Representers about what we could do even better

Okay because I'm not an "official" rep (I'm a rep just without x360a in my tag). But I'm looking foward to the great ideas that (hopefully) come out of this thread. Maybe strike up a few of my own.

You seem to be the only Rep without "x360a" in the gamertag
We will be glad to hear ideas from anyone but keep in mind that the future perks that the Representers have are only for the Official Representers

how would one go about getting a referral from a mod. it just seems a bit intrusive to send one of them a message just for a quick game and a referral.

That is always a good reason to take part in Tournaments

Currently some of the moderators are very busy with all the new things going on with the site and that is one reason why x360a recruited new staff recently.

That is correct. There's going to be some changes to the eligibility rules in the near future so it might take a while to get accepted since we have a lot of things to do but stay tuned

We are looking into that requirement but I'm not making any promises. We do need to see the activity and interest of the applicants so being a member for 6 months is quite good amount of time where you can get yourself known in the community and that makes it easier for you to be approved

Check our gamertags, we all play games, look for a MP game we are playing and send a PM here. Don't harrass anyone but mods should be cool about getting inquiries on play dates for games they are already playing.

I don't see that changing and would be strongly against it. Take those 6 months to get to know your fellow members and maybe get some games in with the staff. Also, subscribers are excempt from the membership requirements except getting a referral from staff.

Very cool, the events sound interesting, especially after completely missing the January completion event. Who knew having a baby took up so much fricking time lol.

FYI: I am resubbing as well just at a lower tier for a little while until my wife is back in work.
