Never Stand Alone (NSA) has a simple system to distinguish various leadership. We do not have a 'Chain of Command' however. Never Stand Alone uses a democratic approach where all NSA Members get a vote in large decisions that affect the community. The Leaders and Advisors do not solely run the community, nor make all the decisions. Occasionally the Leaders and Advisors do make smaller decisions, but they mostly do not affect how NSA runs, feels, or converses dramatically.
The only automatic promotion in the community is from Junior Member to Member. This promotion occurs when the user has made 25 approved posts. Leaders and Advisors have the right to mark a Junior Member's post as "unapproved" if the post is viewed as spam in an attempt to gain membership status which may move that user back to a Junior Member if their automatic promotion already occurred because of it. All posts must be relevant and have meaningful content to be considered approved. The Donating Member groups are applied to Members and Senior members upon purchase of the donation package. All other promotions are determined by the community, Advisors, and/or Leaders.
A basic outline of Never Stand Alone's members and website users is below:
The Leaders are the highest level of 'authority' in the community. The Leaders never exert their full power unless there is a major issue with the community, in which case all Leaders will vote on various actions to take to solve the issue and improve Never Stand Alone and prevent the same or similar issue from descending upon the community again. Most of the Leaders are also the 'Founders' of Never Stand Alone. The 'Founders' however decided to be called Leaders because there is still a chance of being promoted to the Leader membership title. The Leaders have a say in who becomes a Leader, Advisor, and Senior Member. All leaders can be viewed by clicking "The Moderating Team" on the bottom of the main NSA website page.
The Advisors are the level between Members and Leaders, they have authority to do almost as much as the Leaders and serve as another level of leadership. They will discipline when necessary. If action must be taken quickly than he or she will do so, but the event will be reviewed by all Leaders and Advisors before a final decision is made. The Advisors have a say in who becomes an Advisor and Senior Member.. All Advisors can be viewed by clicking "The Moderating Team" on the bottom of the main NSA website page.
Donating Members can be a part of 4 different groups - Donator Plus, Gold Donator Plus, Platinum Donator Plus, and Elite Donator Plus. If you are interested in becoming a Donator Plus or higher member you may view benefits by visiting the store and viewing each package. You may view all Donator Plus, Gold Donator Plus, Platinum Donator Plus, and Elite Donator Plus members by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page. There is also a Donator package which at this time does not include its own group designation.
Senior Members are either individuals who have been extremely active or have been with the community since it was founded. A member could own a PC, XBOX, and PS3 and play on them all with community members. All Senior members are given an equal vote in large, community changing decisions. Senior Members have no authority over members, senior members, advisors, and Leaders. You may view all senior member by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page.
Members are individuals who have been active enough to be promoted from Junior Members. A member could own a PC, XBOX, and PS3 and play on them all with community members. All members are given an equal vote in large, community changing decisions. Members have no authority over other members, senior members, advisors, ad Leaders. You may view all member by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page.
Junior Members are players who have introduced themselves to the community. They are not considered members and will not receive a permission to vote in all decisions. As they are not members yet they will be placed under more strict rules than members, but less strict rules than Registered Users. You may view all Junior Members by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page.
--NSA Retired Veterans--
NSA Retired Veterans are either previous members of NSA who left on good terms and wished to stay in touch with friends in Never Stand Alone. You may still often see them in games, on the forum, or in TeamSpeak. You may view all NSA Retired Veterans by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page.
--Friends of the NSA--
Friends of the NSA are individuals that either were too young to join or did not wish to join but still wished to have a way to communicate with members. You may view all Friends of the NSA by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page.
Registered Users are simply people who have registered on the site. They have either not introduced themselves to NSA or did not meet the requirements to become a junior member. What ever the reason they are not members of NSA, Registered Users have no say in community events or decisions and are subject to stricter rules and discipline. You may view all Registered Users by clicking "Members" at the top of every NSA website page.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask a Leader, Advisor, or a Member!
