If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.”
TRANSFERS

When doing a transfer, the proper method for this to happen is for the person transferring to contact their General, who in turn will contact their Section Leader. The Section Leader will contact the Section Leader of the clan that they are hoping to go to, and they will contact the General of the clan that they will be moving to. Once all of this is done, and the transfer is accepted, the General should remove them from the clan list, make sure they are removed from the squad list, and post a removal request with the reason being transferring to their desired clan. When the removal request is processed on the website, the clan member will be moved from one clan to the other.

DISCORDS
Please make sure that when you are joining specific discord channels or sending links to members, names are to mirror your current website name. This'll alleviate any confusion as to who is who in the discord. Generals and Section Leaders are to assign roles for new or returning members in their specific Division Discords. You should be directing them to the Clan Assignment Channel to have them fill out the proper format. And when removing members from the community due to specific reasons, Generals and or Section Leaders should be removing them from your Division Discords as well. This would be helpful in keeping our individual discords clean and less cluttered.

SPRING CLEANING
Spring is in the air! It's time to get your forums cleaned up! Working together with your leadership to ensure that Usergroups and all lists match. Anyone who is inactive should be given notice prior to being removed. We don't want clutter forming in our forums to where it becomes hard to clean up. Don't be a hoarder.

Name Changes

For a long time, Xiled Gaming was almost always Xbox only. With the changes made a while ago, Xiled Gaming now has members on Xbox, PC, and Play Station. When a General submits a name change, not only should they list the current name,
the rank and the names wanted, but they should also list what console the member plays on.
Should that member play on multiple consoles, the console with the lowest number of characters allowed should take precedence for name length.
Which are as follows:
Xbox allows 12 characters.
Play Station allows 16 characters.
PC allows 20 characters

Discouragement within leadership

Deal with discouragement before it happens by being a positive leader. When you start to feel discouraged remember not to show this to everyone it will trickle down in the clan. When you feel like your clan has grown stagnant, Spend more time affirming and less time correcting. Give public acknowledgement, gratitude, and praise. Be available.
Three things to remember when in a rut are
remembering why you are doing this!
getting help from peers,
don't quit

Open discussion

Ask yourself these questions:
Where do you find encouragement?
How do you encourage others?
How do I know when I'm getting discouraged?
How can I overcome discouragement?
Personal reflection is never a bad thing it strengthens us as leaders.




Future Leadership:

As leaders, we want the best for our members. It is our job to train and teach each person below us (regardless of rank) how to better do their job and hopefully propel them forward in the future. Identifying this early is key! Don't wait until a position in leadership opens up before you start looking to fill that spot...you should have your eye on one, if not more, members to potentially move up into leadership roles! This is the way to build a strong foundation within your clan(s)! With good communication and training, you shouldn't have to worry about leadership!


Clan Primary Games

Your clan's primary games should stay updated consistently as the clan changes, especially with new games coming out. Get an Update Clan in tonight so everything can be brought up to date. There shouldn't be 5 main games in a clan at any point, narrow it down to 3 or less.


Promotions

Just because you reach all requirements to be promoted to the next rank does not mean you will be promoted right away. Promotions are earned not given. If you are seeking a promotion, work for it! The leadership notice it! Training Leadership As a Section Leader, your main goal should be to ensure that your Generals are knowledgeable about their responsibilities and that they feel comfortable asking questions when they aren't. However, if you are spending time training someone on the same thing over and over again, and it doesn't seem to be getting through to them, you need to figure out why that is. Whether it's that you need to find a different way to teach them or ask for assistance from a peer or XD to get this done, it needs to be a priority. If someone isn't capable of learning or retaining information, sometimes that leads to making a difficult decision and putting someone into the rank that is capable of learning. Keep in mind that if someone can't learn it themself, how could they teach it to anyone else in the ranks below them?

Streaming within the community.

The benefits of streaming are endless, streaming brings us together, We know we have some folks that are serious and trying to make it a profession, but we also have others that are using it to bring their clans together. So what does that look like in each division, each section, each clan? So We are wanting to get an understanding of what the use of streaming is within the community and the benefits streaming can offer to our overall success, so dig in ask follow up questions, open discussions., question like, how many streamers though out each section/clan/squad., how can we use streaming to push our names out there to be known and promote growth within our ranks.
What can the community provide to aid in this process. Like being hosted on the website. Announcements in the discords. ect
This is not so much a note, but an assignment.

The Primary Qualities of a Leader:

Leadership is not easy, No leader is perfect, there's always room for improvement, always be looking for the tools to aid in your journey.

Full Stream Ahead!!!!!

XG is pleased to announce that the streaming capabilities on the website are now up and running. Now you stream will be featured and simulcasted on the website for all members to see. An announcement will also go out through the XG Discord to let everyone know that you are going live. (This function is glitching at the moment but should be fixed in the next few days.). The are bound to be other glitches or issues along the way, but we will jump on those as they occur.

How do I signed up? Glad you asked. This is an account upgrade that is available for $5 per month, for now. All funds will go back into the community, i.e. website and Discord updates, tournament prizes, etc..

Below are the steps to upgrade your account:

Go to your profile on the website (click your game pic in the upper right hand portion of the screen)
Tap Account Upgrades
Select the Streamer purchase button
This takes you to PayPal. YOU MUST HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT!
After you secure payment, you are placed in the Streamers user group.
Go to the Streams forum and click on the “Submit Channel” button and provide the URL for your Twitch stream.

That’s all there is to it, hopefully. Stay tuned for other items related to the XG Streamers group, such as new banners, overlays, and affiliations in the near future. If you do run into any issues during this process, hit up your leadership. Several members have been requesting this ability for a while, so we are glad to finally be able to provide it. With that in mind, always remember to pass along any ideas to make the community moving forward.




Section Leaders:

Section Leaders are the face of your section. You are the leader that everyone depends on and trust. As a Section Leader, you are to help your Generals and train them the best way possible. This means getting to know your clans, show them around the website/discord and show them where to find things. As an XS this is each of yours responsibility. Let's go over just a few that some might need a refresher on:

Oversee all aspects of a section (group of clans). This includes, but is not limited to, attending clan meetings when possible, approving transfers and XG gamertag requests, preparing clan splits, and handling any cross-clan issues that may arise.

Best advice on this is to hold a leadership meeting with each clan once a week. Attend a clan meeting at least once a month. Get to know your members by joining game nights and meeting all new recruits. Remember Communication is the Key To Success! So communicate with your Generals on a regular base.


Work with Generals. Ensure they are properly trained to uphold their responsibilities, manage their clans effectively, and handle issues and enforce the Honor Code. Speak with them regularly to discuss clan activity, their development and the development of their Captains.

Get your leaderships short term and long term goal. Ask about potential members in the clan that would like to move up into leadership. Help your General's and guide them the way you were guided by your previous XS. Go over the usergroup together as you are a TEAM!

Micromanaging: As an XS you can give out ideas to help your clan but make sure you are not Micromanaging in any way. Let your General know that you are just giving guidance or suggestions based on previous experiences. They can choose what course they will take. Remember the Clan is your General's Clan! If you see something that might help the clan, this is where you will guide your General the way he/she needs to be guided.

Generals:

Generals are the backbone of this community. As a General you all are responsible for making sure your clan is run the way it should be. You are looking for that potential leadership in everyone in your clan. Remember as a General or any member of Xiled Gaming our main goal is to have fun and game with like minded gamers. Don't lose that focus!! Here is a few things that might help:

Work with Captains. Ensure they are properly trained to uphold their responsibilities, manage their squads effectively, and handle issues and enforce the Honor Code. Speak with them regularly to discuss squad activity, their development and the development of their Lieutenants.

Get with your leadership weekly, let all your leadership know you are there to help them as well. See what their goals are and talk about how your going to help them reach that goal. Game with all your members and get to know each one. This will show your members that they can trust you and be there for them as well.

Attend mandatory bi-monthly leadership meetings to keep up-to-date on community information, and host weekly clan meetings to pass along necessary communication from upper leadership and ensure that clan issues and goals are discussed.

If you are not able to make a meeting be sure to let your XS know and have your Captain or LT step in for you. Utilize the Calendar on the website for community related activites and classes. If you have any questions be sure to go to your XS and ask. Remember their is no stupid question.

Maintain the clan’s Discord channel and clan list and updating it, at minimum, by the 1st and 15th of each month.

When updating your list by the 1st and 15th of each month, make sure your Captain has done this as well. If they are not able to then it is the Generals responsibility to do this for them. Also remember to assign roles as new members come into discord. This way they will see your clans Discord chat and know what's going on in the community and your clan.

Effective Leaders avoid becoming the weed that chokes their team's individual passion and overall performance.
Instead, they become the water bearers who water, nurture, coach, and grow individual passionate seeds into a superstar team.
Motivation and Innovation

As an XS or general, it is your responsibility to provide the tools that are necessary for your generals and clan leaders to be successful. You got to the rank of XS or general because you were motivated to do the job requirements to reach the next level: so are you instilling that motivation into your generals or are you setting back and letting them do their own thing, hoping they will figure it out? You should be communicating with your generals about what it took for you to run a successful clan and assisting them in how to accomplish the tasks. For example, they should understand why it is important to always be recruiting, training leadership, holding clan events, joining community events, etc., as these pertain to the success of the clan and to them being able to reach the goals that they have established.

So what happens when you have this conversation with your general, but they say they have tried to do those but nothing is working? That is where Innovation comes in. If the way you are approaching a problem is not yielding positive results, you have to be able to try new approaches. If recruiting is not working because everyone is in party chat, try game chat. If no one is showing up for meetings, combine it with a game night or do a movie night. If you come across issues that you haven't faced before and are not sure of another approach, hit up a peer to see if they have some ideas or get with a section leader or division leader.

Ensuring Your Clans are Successful
Daily clan activities, weekly clan, and squad meetings, and leadership meetings are just a few ingredients that create a successful clan. The main reason people join our community is to find people that they enjoy gaming and hanging out with on a regular basis so they never have to play alone unless they want to.
When talking to your members and leadership in all of your clans, it's your responsibility to bring up ideas and come up with solutions to any issues that are occurring within the clan, and make sure people are comfortable coming to you with any ideas they have. Being proactive to prevent issues as well as asking people for ideas will help pave the way for success.
Reinforcing positive things is just as important as bringing up the negatives and addressing them, celebrating small positive changes, and building on them to keep moving forward.

Holiday Break
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year are here again! Remember, this is a time when members can be distant and sometimes unresponsive due to traveling and family, so patience is going to be needed. Communicate with your members as best you can and hold games nights to keep activity up. Also, we are sure a lot of people will be getting new games over the holiday so let's not forget the recruitment opportunities.
