RuneScape:Events Team/Requests/I'm Just Alex
I'm nominating Just Alex to join the Events Team. He has been in the clan for only a few days, though he's been guesting for longer, and has run an unofficial Beastmaster event with me and the clan today. Despite the brevity of his presence in the in-game community, Alex is someone I know with extensive experience in PvM of all levels. Additionally, he's very friendly and patient with a love for teaching. His attitude, in conjunction with with expertise he has to offer, makes him a valuable asset to the Events Team and the in-game community as a whole. I highly recommend Just Alex to be a member of the Team.
Hello, I am Alex.. Just Alex. First and foremost, I would like to hereby accept this nomination to be part of the Events Team. I am truly honored to be recommended in such a short period of time. I am extremely excited for the opportunity to host events, while teaching others how to PvM. I believe with the help of more experienced people from RSW and myself, we have nothing stopping us from succeeding at it. Let's face it, we all have been new to PvM at some point no matter how experienced you are. I want to create an environment where people from all skills levels can come and boss. I want them to not have to worry about being nervous or messing up. Long story short, I want people to make GPs, learn bosses, and most importantly have fun. Let's do it ! :D I'm Just Alex (talk) 06:10, July 29, 2016 (UTC)

Uhh - Yea Alex is a great guy from the times I've talked to him but he's only been the clan for such a short time. Being in the Events Team requires recognition from the whole clan, combined with a sense of trust gained. I do not have this yet with Alex, and one event will not change this. More time must take place. Haidro 06:17, July 29, 2016 (UTC)
Not yet - I hate to say this - because I'd love for our Event's Team to have more active members and because you seem like someone who's really enthusiastic and who could potentially be a really good person to run events - but I think it is too soon for this request. You only joined the clan/wiki a couple of days ago and while the unofficial event you did yesterday was clearly successful and enjoyed by those who went to it, doing official events involves more than this. Being on our events team means you advertise and run events open to the whole Runescape community and are trusted to represent the wiki at them, as well as being given tools to moderate in our clan by kicking people. I've not seen enough of you yet to say you should be given these responsibilities.
I really hope this doesn't put you off, because the limited impression I have of you so far is positive: keep showing us you have the qualities we're looking for through helping clannies with their bossing and make sure you're familiar with what running official events involves and I think you could be a could addition to the team when we've got to know you better.13:44, July 29, 2016 (UTC)

Support - The ET is pretty dead last I looked and I'm willing to overlook a lack of time spent in the clan. Those that participated evidently had a good time, so I think it's the time to take on someone enthusiastic and willing to help and let them improve the community.
For those opposing, we haven't had an event this year if RS:ET/A is correct. The worst that can happen is that he does nothing. The abilities gained in the clan is limited to kicking guests. As he was a former guest, I would imagine he sympathises with such a position making it very unlikely he's going to abuse such a position. Take a leap of faith people. cqm 12:33, 3 Aug 2016 (UTC) (UTC)
- Actually we have a Corporeal Beast event in three days, and there are events planned through mid-December. --

- That's still 0 events since the middle of December last year. Just because it's suddenly become active again, doesn't mean it's going to stay active but with some fresh enthusiasm it could go for longer. cqm 08:42, 4 Aug 2016 (UTC) (UTC)
- Last thing I want to do is start an issue. If majority people are worried about my time, that is fine. I do want to openly say once again that I have been guesting in and out for months in RSW. I also want people to understand that although these weren't official events, the past week we have done Rots, Rago, Nex, and Raids! A lot of people are opening up to myself and others in the ts. I feel like with more events and friendly fun people there will be more players willing to try new things without being nervous. I do want to say something that I ALWAYS say. I DO NOT allow ELITEST types in my Ts, nor with the PvM groups/events. This means that the atmosphere wil be fun, friendly, and overall a chill place to learn n socialize. To me, this is what RSW is all about. We all play one game that we enjoy, a common interest. No matter what the outcome is, I am here to stay and will continue to help with events and other plays as much as possible. Thanks :D I'm Just Alex (talk) 20:46, August 4, 2016 (UTC)
Support - I have participated in several PvM events with an RSW group led by Alex over the past week, and I've rarely had as much fun as I did with clan members before. RSW clan members rarely interact beyond talking in the clan chat, greatly exacerbated by a lack of clan events. Alex welcomed many people from the clan to Raids, Rago, and Nex, with most of us inexperienced. Some had gear/ability that would never be accepted elsewhere, like Raid FC, but the events still managed to be successful and enjoyable for everyone. In addition to his PvM ability, he has characteristics that are perfect for the Events Team member. He is an efficient leader with a good attitude, friendly, and respected. Though he hasn't actually been in the clan long, he has guested for a while now, as was mentioned. If the only problem is this lack of time spent in the clan, then Alex should be re-nominated for the Events Team as soon as that is no longer a problem. Ideal Gas (talk) 03:18, August 5, 2016 (UTC)
Comment - I'm inclined to disagree with time being considered an issue in this case. For months, since I've been doing higher-end pvm, several clannies have approached me about learning new bosses. They've needed a team to go with for reaper/comp requirements or just so they could try other parts of the game, but I haven't been with teams that can/want to take learners so easily. Having Alex come along with the expertise and willingness to teach is a veritable windfall for the clan. As far as the time/trust concern goes, the worst he can do with his clan chat rank is kick guests for an hour. So I pose to you guys this - what's more important? I probably sound like a broken record echoing what others have said about the unofficial events we've been hosting, but I'd like to stress not only the bosses we've been going to, but the success and numbers of learners involved. Last night, for example, we spent a good 9 hours bossing with friends and clannies. We went to BM, and we generally go every 2 days and do multiple kills so people can have kc and loot. Then we went to Vorago, with a total of 14 people. At most, we had 4 non-clan members there, and at the end of one of those kills I had 8, I repeat, 8 adventurer points. Eight of the 14 people present had <10 kc and made it to the end of the kill. For most of those people, it was their first time ever there. With Alex's help, they not only had the opportunity to learn a boss that was previously out of reach, but they learned in a friendly environment. That's what this clan needs. We're not known for our bossing prowess, though that doesn't mean we have to be doing Corp/GWD1 masses forever. While those are good entry-level bosses, higher-end pvm is a fresh and exciting thing people now look forward to since Alex is here. Not to say that these unofficial events won't continue if he was to not make it into the team, but I emphasise here that what Alex has to offer is worth overlooking how much time he's spent in the clan, which is a nonissue in comparison.
I leave these two screenshots here,  and . The first shows the organization of the learning team, and the second shows the success of learners making it to the end of the kill. I didn't get a screenshot of the 8 adventurer point kill, though these should testify well enough. 09:25, August 5, 2016 (UTC)
Support - I've gone to most the events Just Alex has unoffically hosted this past week. Those events being group Nex, multiple Beastmaster kills, and Vorago. He has never turned anyone down, and has succeeded in getting people kills on these group bosses, when they probably wouldn't have a chance with most other teams. Most of the people he has taken to these events do come back again and again. But all of this has been stated in the posts above me. I am currently not in the RSW clan, but I'm always guesting and active in the chat. Being from outside of the clan, I have only seen one complaint about Alex and that's not enough time in clan. This is a great opportunity for RSW to get someone on their Events team that does current events like, Vorago and Raids, and potentially more bosses in the future, that is willing to take learners from inside and outside of the clan.

- Note: closing an RfET requires verification that the current ET members do not wish to veto. Gareth, Iiii I I I, and Corn voted no veto. Panjy16, as the nominator and first supporter of this thread, was assumed no veto. As 4 of the 8 ET members were determined to be no veto, I stopped asking as it is not possible for veto to obtain a majority, and the consensus of this request stands.
