Recently i've noticed a major problem in OSB. Like the subject says, it is way too big. Not too big as number of people go, but loyal people. We could currently have 200 knights and 10000 squires for all i know, they are just simply not known to all of us well enough. I could go into a server with all osb on it and not know a single one. I think we need to be a little more perservative with our recruiting. Muric Sophi and Grok were excellent additions, they have been here long and are easily recognizable. But some of the new squires, and even some knights, i don't know from a hole in the wall. Some are new to Dysotopia. I think we should possibly revamp our recruitment policies.

I'd agree with that, except I'm proably one of the people hardly anyone knows due to the fact that I only started playing dyso again a little while ago now...yes...

I'm no programmer but maybe this is possible. Can someone create a sign on the inside of OSB headquarters that when clicked on gives you a couple of choices 1) Who are the active High Knights 2) Who are the active Knights 3) Who are the active squires. This way we can check in game if there is a question on membership and have a quick reference.

By the way Vurg...

Too large? Hmm, I think I see your point but currently I know who they all are ... I think your perspective is a bit off, Vurg, because you haven't been around a whole heck of a lot lately. I'm going to have a new roster posted and, in conjunction, cleaning out the usergroup.

yeah i was a bit off, i was including everyone from the old list, even the non actives i guess...even old weyr, bri's character, oni, lots of other guys, just seemed like that squire suggestion page was going nuts with hi im mr. guy i just became a knight here is my squire oh hes a knight, etc
i still think req. before we squire and before we recruit, etc

Generally speaking, I agree with you that before you squire someone and especially before you knight it probably IS a good idea to post something about it in here before doing so unless you know for certain it's a non-issue.

I have only knighted Meriarry Yeal/Anna Dubois , Draku Zarian/Kitana Alkaissi, Muric & Grok. All were great additions to the Order. I think most would agree. If you look at the new list, you will see that the Order is in fact rather modest in its numbers. icon_cool.gif
