The RP Congress is going to be holding a SG job fair on May 9, at 8 PM E.S.T., in between Mynx & Synapse in Skyway City.  I know quite few members have expressed interest in recruiting, and I find recruiting can often be a great deal of fun.  (Haranging new RP'ers regarding the dangers of the capitalist model, or urging them to 'cast off their chains' leads to very funny stuff).   With the new reorganization of CCCP, we have cleared out some space for new members, and 'd like to thank all of the folks that volunteered to move their alts to the Young Champions.  

First off, how do we feel about participation?  I know we normally have a fairly involved recruiting process, but if we are going to have the job fair, we should be prepared to induct them on the spot.  We can always consider them provisionally in the CCCP and boot them if they don't work out.  Is everyone O.K. with that?

I will try to be there on the 9th, but my work schedule can be very hectic at times.  Are there any others who might be able to attend?  No one should feel obligated to go, and there is no set amount of time I expect you to stay.  If no one is there, feel free to leave, but I think you might have fun.

If you are planning on attending the job fair to recruit, let me know.  We need to have at least one person there of official rank or higher to do any necessary inductions, so this may be as good a time as any to consider adding some officers to the depleted officer corps.  I'm sure the players of Carpathia & Svarog will be there with their other project, the N.A.P., so they won't be able to attend.  That pretty much just leaves Untermensch, BB, Soviette, Collective Fist and Khrusch as officers.  We probably could use some new officers in any event.

I will participate unless something comes up at the last moment that prevents it!

edit:  I would also agree that provisional membership is essential.  New members must be judged on game-play and demeanor ("WTF nOOb!?  Chug herd bigger groups!").

Not to be a downer on the job fair, but I find that a well thought-out bio is a great indicator that a player is both a good RPer and willing to make a commitment. I can think of very few players who joined without submitting a lot of information and stuck around for more than a month.

You should make very clear that membership is provisional until they give you what you want: bio, RP demonstration, goodwill, etc. The latest purge is an example of how fair-weather players can be.

Agreed!  Perhaps we should view the job fair just as PR.  If people are interested we can send them to the web site.  On other hand, if someone shows up as Lenin's Ghost, with a background to match, or something and starts RPing from the start there should be an official on hand to bring them in immediately as a provisional.

I further agree with this.  Hopefully we can get the web page hosting worked out so we can update our recruiting info.  Until then, I think is a a great example of what we expect in RP behavior (sort of the dos' and don'ts) and what CCCP is.  Also we have our questions/expectations from new players that they should post in the recruitment section ( http://www.fuzzyempire.com/cccp/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1002&whichpage=1 ).  I think we should be crystal clear that it is a provisional membership, and they need to continue the process.  If you don't hear anything else from them on the boards after getting in through the job fair, remove them.

<edit miles of emoticons>

I see no point to posting miles of emoticons in this thread. If you have something you need to say or even mindless drivel, that's cool. But we don't need garbage.

Er....yeah, that was a bad idea.  Any particular reason why you would do that?

What the hell are you smoking, Master's Pride?  By the way, I know Communard mentioned that this went well and will there be more in the future?  My job kinda kept me from making the last one [:(!]

Agn, I'm sure there will be more in the future, as we seem to be getting more and more turn-out at each one, and alot of the other SG's are very hungry for people.   Really, RP'ing with other groups has shown me that we have an unusually great and active core of creative and fun people in the CCCP.  Even if we never added another member, I'd stick around, but I'm hoping we can continue building on what we already have.
