  1. THE DECENTRALIZED COMMUNITY RECRUITMENT PAGE The Decentralized Community (DeCo) is an alliance inspired by the ideas of decentralization, wisdom of the crowd and user-generated, open source content. The community is open to everyone who would like to be a part of it. Our charter is available atour own forum. We've also attached it to the end of this post, as a spoiler.To give everyone a general idea of what we are about, we've done our best to answer some of the most common questions below. Who are you people and where are you from? We are from the internet. Sure you are. But there are already plenty of alliances on Project Terra. Why make a new one? Because we are different. DeCo is not a union or a federation. It’s not an empire or an order. It’s a network. It’s a community. Right. But what does that mean? DeCo is decentralized, like the internet and the free market. It means DeCo exists to serve and facilitate its members, not the other way around. In DeCo, everyone is encouraged to contribute but no one will be telling you what to do. But if no one is telling me what to do, who is in charge? The community is in charge. Every member may decide for him-/herself in what ways he/she would or would not like to get involved. Important decisions will always be put to a vote and every member will have the right to vote. How will I know what I have to do? We trust that all of our members have brains of their own. Instead of having a central authority delegating tasks, we encourage members to find out for themselves how they can contribute to the community. Any and all contributions are encouraged and appreciated. How can I tell if my contribution has been used/useful? There is no central authority to check/approve contributions. Our reputation system allows all contributions to be peer-reviewed. If members of the community appreciate a contribution they will award it reputation. This serves as a reward system for contributors and to alert members to contributions by others that may be of use to them. I don’t understand any of this. It’s like Wikipedia. It doesn’t matter who you are; if you find something that is lacking or that can be improved, add/improve it! All community members can rate your work and these ratings automatically make sure that the best contributions are highly visible to everyone. Regardless of rating, all contributions will be (and will remain) available to all members of the community, no strings attached. Sounds interesting, but it seems a bit too revolutionary. The ideas of DeCo (decentralization, open source, user-generated content, wisdom of the crowd, free market) have been around for a long time. If they seem revolutionary in application to alliances, it is only because you have become used to alliances with hierarchical systems that belong in the Middle Ages and we are bringing you back to the 21stcentury. Maybe, but I’m not sure if it’s right for me. Maybe I’ll just be safe and join one of the big alliances. We in DeCo have great respect for the established alliances. They have become big for a reason and we totally understand if you decide to join any of them. But if you’re looking for something different, something modern, a place that stimulates and appreciates individualism like no other, then we encourage you to come see what we are all about. If after some time you decide another alliance is a better fit for you, no harm done. We appreciate you taking the time to get to know us and giving us the opportunity to get to know you. Sounds reasonable. Where do I sign up? Simply apply to our alliancein-game! One of our members will contact you asking for the information he/she needs to submit your application to a community vote. Before long, you’ll be invited to create an account onour forumsand reap all the benefits of DeCo membership! And that charter you promised to attach?
  2. My Current state of affairs

    As of Today, I am entering hibernation. I need a break. Terra's community is so bad, that I'm ashamed to be part of it. There are a select few who are good, but the rest are ********. I've tolerated it since PT R1, but their personalities as sperglords are starting to turn me into one too. I yelled at Statefarm, treated him cruelly. As of now, Fon Master Ion is the probationary President of TFE while I decide what to do.... Terra's so called "community" makes me sick, no community should act like Terra's. It's the worst I've ever been a part of in fact. The volatility on here makes 4chan look peaceful. I will continue my game dev blog posts, and I will still be on IRC and post on AP, but I need a break from the most of it. Until we meet again in-game, HWJohn/True Evangelion
