When Opportunity Knocks
We members of KSI are lucky. There are opportunities given here that others don’t have the chance to take. There are multiple gaming communities in the world but none are quite like KSI. We are more than just a 3-letter acronym. In this article, I will be explaining the opportunities we have available to us as members.
Beauty Is Not Skin Deep
KSI’s beauty is not merely surface deep. We put up LFG posts advertising ourselves to gamers in a few sentences. Truthfully, there aren’t enough words to describe this community and all it encompasses.
Friendship is a valuable thing. The first thing that comes to mind about KSI is friends. Sure, we will always meet a few people we don’t care for. However, we also get the opportunity to meet new people and make new connections. Sometimes these new friendships extend beyond our own continent.
In life, we strongly rely on first impressions. When you meet someone you get a strong sense of who they are by how they act. Online these factors disappear. In KSI, people who get nervous easily don’t have to worry as much. Embrace this and be yourself; you have many friendships to gain.
Many people don’t initially think of life skills when it comes to gaming communities. When talking with your friends, you are actually building this useful skill. The saying “communication is key” is very true. When becoming a leader in this community, you learn to communicate and correspond with others. This enables you to create a strong and cohesive team. Talking and knowing how to convey and share information is a life skill that can help you throughout your days.
I feel this is one of the most obvious things covered in this article. While ascending the ranks in KSI, we always speak about leaders. Even in our Code of Conduct we reference “Leaders in KSI”. This community can teach you how to be a leader, handle small issues and share information with others. Training and mentoring members can help you learn skills to enhance your home as well as your gaming life.
KSI is all about education! You learn how KSI works when you are first recruited. You are taught further when you are trained into a higher rank. Workshops, the forums, and meetings are all areas where we can receive this education. Perhaps the most impactful way you receive it is through word of mouth from fellow members. The more you learn, the more you progress.
Clan Operations is generally – but not only – the way people can enter this community. We also have the opportunity to join Departments in KSI. This in itself opens up many avenues to members.
If you want to improve your writing, interviewing, or socialization techniques, the News, HSI, and CDC departments can add these skills to your portfolio.
Tournaments and Events is helpful with branching out to the community. They teach you how to organize tournaments, while also planning and hosting weekly events.
Performance Operations helps to improve KSI as a whole. Performance Officers spread education on a community wide level using workshops and the knowledge obtained through their tenure here.
Graphics offers the opportunity to bring out your creative and artistic side. They teach you the tools necessary to help you create images used throughout KSI.
AAP and The Courts use voting and deliberation amongst the staff. They exert the ability to analyze and comprehend how people think.
There are many other areas within Department Ops not explained here. Always keep an eye out for new opportunities made available in our Join A Department section.
Every Chance You Have
KSI brings so much to the table. This is just a small portion of what we have presented to us as part of this community. Many have used KSI on their resumes. We invest ourselves, our time, and are passionate about what we do here. Always remember to appreciate these opportunities and use them to better yourself and others within this great community we all share.
