My Retirement

27 Jul

Today marks my retirement of all armies and xat. I have had an amazing time with my friends, my haters, and my rivalry against many others.
I first started off on the server Alaska, December 2013, seeing some nachos mass recruiting. I looked them up and found the CPAC site and saw many other armies. My eyes locked onto the Dark Warriors. I”King” my name was. I remember Freezie, Spi101, Crazy, and Pufpuf leading the
Dark Warriors. I was bullied and abused and never talked to in my early days, I almost quit armies because of this. Thats when Final Chaser (DW 3ic) recruited me into the Golds Army of Club Penguin. The Golds were very nice to me, and informative towards new recruits. I got moderator within a 1-2 month period and got moderator in the DW in about 3 months. That is where I began to be noticed. The Dark Warriors were my home and i’ve made many friends in both Golds and the Dark Warriors of Club Penguin. Soon after, I was an owner in the Golds and the Dark Warriors. A couple weeks after being an owner in the Dark Warriors Elmikey joined and removed all of the Owners and Moderators and made them members. I quit the Dark Warriors later on. I’ve rejoined and quit many times before I made my final decision to just quit. I started to focus more on the Golds Army of Club Penguin and I was stuck at 2ic for quite some time. After Whats up11 retired from leadership, he made me the new US leader of the Golds. Out of nowhere, I was couped and Andrew24 then took my place. The Golds and the Dark Warriors were both of my homes and where most of my friends were at. After I was couped, many rebelled against me and I thought my army career was over. I decieded to join the ACP. (Which many of my friends hated me for this) I started off a mid member and moved up to a moderator in a month. The next month I got to brigadier general and the next month 5ic. I was well liked by my peers and was made an ACPRF Director in the ACP. I risen the ACPRF to great heights. My time is up in Club Penguin Armies and my decision is final.

The Moderator Plan

15 Jul

The current moderation of ACP chat is a clustered nightmare. Our very own troops often blend in, and are even overshadowed by retired mods. ACP moderation is increasingly lazy, and we are continually having the same reoccurring problem. ACP will have about 30 on chat for an event, and only 12 will be on. A lot of moderators will be AFK, and the bulk of the troops is Owners, and enthusiastic members looking to rank up. This is the current moderator line of the ACP:

ACPMods

 

ACP currently has 30 moderators, not including the retirees and partners of ACP who often adorn chat. Look at the people in this picture, and be honest with yourself. Who are the actual hard working people in this picture? And who is the dead weight that we leave there to bring us down? Chainz and I think that the current system of “if you don’t do shit, you don’t get shit”, is flawed. We have formulated a radical, but largely effective idea, to kick ACP back into gear. We believe that if ACP chat was reset, and that every Mod, including retirees and partners of ACP, were made member, it would be for the good of ACP. What!? No! But wait, listen. This would only be for two days, and Moderators would have to fill out a form answering various questions about their moderation, and perhaps future moderation of the ACP. This will entirely drop the dead weight, and give a basis for your plans to make ACPRF required to all Moderators. A clean slate would be created per se; we as an Army would have a springboard to go off of. This would even kick start the ACPTR. This would be the form:

What is your rank?

What do you contribute to the ACP? Please answer in one paragraph(5 sentences).

How loyal are you 1-10?(Lies will only end your rank).

Simple as that. It pressures ACP Moderators to challenge their loyalty, and really look at themselves. This could all be done with hype of it, but Chainz and I agree it would be better pushed on ACP suddenly, which would show the true colors.

A main point of the 2 days to comment is showing how active our moderators actually are. If they don’t comment within the 2 day time frame, they are given the option for a repeal form, in which will be given out for half a week. This is the much stricter form:

What is your rank?

Why did you not check ACP’s site often enough to see this very important form. Or even chat? Do not give us excuses.

Why do you deserve to retain your rank, and how will that benefit the ACP of the future?

This form is much stricter, forcing the person to reflect on what they have skimmed over. We suggest the choices made for the fillers of this form are not ones taken easily.

Going to the next topic relevant to this, we strive to also examine retirees. Retirees being moderator, as said earlier, often makes troops blend in with them. They are often over-critical, stressful presences, and bullies to the actual troops of the ACP. Therefore, there should be some serious changes regarding what retirees get mod. We suggest that there should be an evaluation of how these retirees usually behave on chat, and take that as a basis to act further, deciding where they should be. This would also include people made moderator for reasons other than that they are a retiree.

Our last suggestion is that ACP focuses more on the Members of the army. The unforeseen foundation quite literally. We think that soldiers from the ranks Private – First Lieutenant should be subject to the weekly selection of one troop to get a Promotion. Instead of the system where you get a large sum of medals, this promotion would only be eligible to these ranks, and the most loyal, active, and resourceful troops. A soldier may only receive this honor once a month. Chainz asked many people that left ACP, and a lot cited their reason as ‘inability to rank up as a member/boredom’. We as an Army need to focus more on our members if we are going to succeed. We need to invigorate them with nationalism. By doing even a small project like this, it will give them something they can try for.

Tactical Innovation – Why Were in a Slump

13 Jul

Klondike, CPAC Philosophy Desk- Strategy is a game changer. During WWII when the Germans unleashed an aerial campaign upon Britain that devastated them, the Prime Minister at the time, Winston Churchill, responded by mass manufacturing lighter planes that were easier to maneuver. Therefore, they got the strategic edge over the Germans, and grounded their campaign over the English Channel. How does this relate to Penguins lining up and making faces aggressively at their enemies? Well, even from the dawning year of 2006 when the Color Wars raged, to the organized years that we know today, armies innovated their strategy. They changed how they went about things tactically, and most importantly, how they got the edge over the enemy. Has our innovation being slowing down? Are we becoming too comfortable with tactics as we know them today? What does it truly mean to be dominate one’s enemy?
