Changes / Community Member Rank Changes
« on: February 21, 2021, 08:15:31 pm »
In the January Open Staff Meeting, the community voted 64 to 6 in favor of removing all 'tiered' Member & Novice ranks, in favor of a single rank for each section. Today we've made those changes, now introducing the new Member & Novice ranks!

The new ranks are explained as follows...

Veteran Member
Veteran Members are Members of TangoWorldWide who have been apart of the community for 3 consecutive years or have been previously. Previous staff members become Veteran Members if they have been Staff for at least 1 year, or have been here 3 consecutive years as a member. They have shown to be extremely active and engaging in our community, uphold our rules and values, and help us continue to expand. They are separated from Members by their time, dedication, and participation in our community. Members who fail to comply with our tagging policy will be demoted to Member.

Members of TangoWorldWide have shown to be active and engaging in the community! To become a Member, a Staff Member must recommend you for promotion during a Staff Meeting. Members can: attend member-only events, participate in member-only giveaways, and have access to member-only content. Members will be eligible for Veteran Member after being apart of TangoWorldWide for three consecutive years. Members comply with our rules, policies, and show ambition to continue to help us thrive.

Novice Member
Novice Member is an introductory rank to TangoWorldWide. Users in this rank are evaluated as they begin their journey into our community. Staff actively review(s) those in Novice Member, seeking to give them full Member status when they are active, engaging, and otherwise show dedication to becoming a long-term member! Novice Members are considered full members of our community: they can attend member-only events, participate in member-only giveaways, and have access to member-only content. Returning members to our community may skip this rank if deemed eligible by our staff. New members to the community will be denoted with an (*) behind their name, for up to two weeks.

Official Announcements / Addressing our Future
« on: September 11, 2020, 10:37:07 pm »
Want to start this one off with saying it is a long coming / long needed post to address quite a few things around TangoWorldWide for the last 2 years as well as a bit of where we are going forward. I've been pretty silent, so we'll start by addressing all of that.

Where I've Been:
As many of you know I am still a student (god it feels like forever). I am almost complete with my MS in Computer Science. Briefly I took an attempt at a PhD, but for those of you who follow some of my updates and posts: my mom was ill (still is), and has been declining in health majorly for the last 2 years. I juggle school and taking care of her, so that is one reason I've been less involved in the community. Everything unfortunately is no longer just do my work then get to come home and play a game as it was at the start of my undergraduate degree when TangoWorldWide first started. In addition, this has resulted in me being burnt out on different fronts of my life, so I stepped away from the community side for several reasons. Also trying to move life forward with @briana, so lot of things to juggle and I am usually spread quite thin.

TangoWorldWide went through several many updates and changes over the last 2 years. Starting at the end of 2018 we had a successful merge with another community to which we gained some pretty strong individuals. Unfortunately one of them has moved on from TangoWorldWide but has seen great success in a new venture, so we are proud and happy for them. @sam is still here, and we are very fortunate to have him -- he has done tremendous work with our community helping up-tick sales for new projects/funding.

Trying to stay away from difficult topics, we did lose a dear friend, and that had definitely a lasting impact on some of our highest ranking members in the community. It has sped up some of us being dis-interested or moving on. Alex and Doomy are now Honorable Ownership, two individuals who have been here from the start and made serious contributions, helping lay a foundation to what TangoWorldWide is today. I cannot put in words how much this has meant to me and helped us advance into our future as a community. While they aren't as active, their impact is everlasting on our network.

As a whole, many of us (myself included) has found fun in other games. We've seen this since the pandemic hit in March. It is awesome to see games like Fall Guys, Among Us, Town of Salem, and skribblio still show that our community is strong, it still pulls a crowd together, and for this it is exciting to see us move past just being a CS:GO community. This has made us re-consider where we want to be as a community and what we want to deliver to our userbase.

It was decided to not release the post many were waiting for at the start of the year: the 6 year post for TangoWorldWide. I felt as wee were transitioning, changing different things in our community, and it was not a good time to release a post. While I am proud of the time we've had our community, every year doesn't need to be seen as a major accomplishment. In future years until our we reach an entire decade as a community, we will likely have brief reflection posts.

Several many changes this year occurred to Discord. Just to summarize a few:
  • Community Update: Re-designing the general section with popular topics the community wants to discuss.
  • Guest Access: Removing the restrictions for guests to have only registered upon joining our discord.
  • Quarantine: A channel used to restrict guests/users who infringe on rules without having to drop entire punishments.
  • Sales Update: Delivering an easier way for users to communicate staff for sales reason(s) and lowering the time to complete a sale significantly.
  • VIP Access: Discord Nitro has given us a way to have a vanity URL, as well as have access to VIP channels, more emotes, and better quality voice on our server.

In addition @Urbaena has done amazing work with a new bot that will be released soon to the server. I seriously appreciate his hard work and cannot wait for you all to see it (I have been busy with work and life things so have had to delay the release a bit).

Interim Co-Owner:
@jordan will be deploying this week, as a result @Jess. has taken the spot as Technologies Director as the interim co-owner until jordan's return. We wish him the best of luck in his ventures and to stay safe as he continues to serve for our country. He has been an outstanding member of our community over the last few years, an extremely close friend, and someone I'm certainly going to miss for the next year.

Our Future & TangoWorldWide:
I want to take an opportunity to address the future of TangoWorldWide, as many of you have seen us slowly reduce server capacity, cut divisions, etc. As of right now we've decided we are going to down-scale and continue to work on core functionality before seeing if there are games worth expanding into again. Collectively, we don't feel CS:GO is a game to continue to invest time and money into. Our current servers of course will see development, advancements, and continue -- but we likely will not add another server unless a major update comes to the game. You can view our existing servers as legacy in this case.

With a new interim co-owner, this adds the option for new server(s) and game(s) which that person is interested in -- mainly being GMOD, we will likely see some GMOD projects in the near future.

Our #1 focus and right now moving forward will to continue to build community through our discord, teampseak, and website. Discord is our primary focus and our goal is to drive new users into Discord. We've moved to focus less on the politics behind a gaming community, rankings, structure, and more on being a place for friends to hang out. As we continue, for hopefully many years to come, we want to focus on core principles of TangoWorldWide: providing a platform to meet new people, make new friends, and be a home away from home.

Thank you all for a very successful few years, we look forward to what we can continue to accomplish in the future.

Departures / Speeding off into the Sunset
« on: June 28, 2020, 06:05:24 pm »
After years of seeing this community grow and being apart of the growth in my own ways, its finally time to part ways. I rather focus more on my life and where I am mentally. Crazy to see how far this community has come and how much it has been a huge part of my life and i couldn't be more grateful for those memories. As of now, I am stepping down from mentor and Veteran Member. So many hours put into Tango and I am starting to feel like I'm trapped. My words can't really describe the feeling. I am pretty loyal but I have been not feeling right about this for some time. Nothing but love for this community. Hopefully by me saying or doing this doesn't burn any bridges, because that was not my intentions but it is how I feel.
I have spent sooooo much time into tango and I kept taking temp leave's with school and work but now that im pretty much settled down, I want to start enjoying my life to the fullest.

I have met so many people whether it be from giveaways, recruiting, or in servers, discord & teamspeak it is unreal. There are so many people I would like to mention and thank but I will do it in the DM's.

@balon You out of all people know how much of a brat I was when we first met. I used to love when we were on Jew break with other old / past members just vibing. It was super chill back then and its crazy to see where life has taken us. Crazy to say that you knew me as a kid into adulthood. Thank you for everything you have done for me and I will always support you, the community and what you believe in. Crazy to see where the community has come and I appreciate every bit of it<3 

@Cunty McGiggles I love you and all the talks we have. Like i told you when we first met. Our friendship is going to be as long as the Eglinton line construction <3 We definitively  got a lot more to do

@Urbaena  Go update the servers silly

@Vita You really know how much of a roller coaster of a ride we had lol So many old friends have grown up and starting a new life and now that is the time for me. I already am a Mechanic and Barber like you know but now I am trying to get into Firefighting so I will let you know how that goes when i decide to pull the trigger on that. Thank you for everything and all those  memories

@Jess @Caribou @Cunty McGiggles @mars ILY all and It is up to you if you would like to keep me or remove me from the respect forum group you own / moderate. I think I would be active on forums time to time

Thank you all for everything.

Official Announcements / Alex as Honorary Ownership
« on: March 14, 2020, 10:22:24 pm »
Back just over 6 years ago when we started this thing, I never thought in a million years it would be as large as it is today and had hit as many milestones over the years as it did. Today it is with a heavy heart to announce that @Alex will be entering Honorary Ownership and be stepping down from Active Ownership.

@Alex, Brother, it has been over 10 years since we met and we've done some crazy shit together. It has been an absolute pleasure running this place with you, and for your dedication, your hard work, and your persistence I thank you. We would not have reached the impact, size, and accomplishments we did over the years without you here. I know life has gotten busy, times got rough as many different thing(s) happened to us over the years, and I understand your need to step away. You are well aware you will always have a home here, and always be welcome back to a position as long as I'm running the community.

As of now, I have no plans to announce a new Owner. I will make that determination in the future. We have other things we want to focus on and accomplish over the next few weeks, with hopefully releasing Mentor and update(s) by April (Quarter 2).

Alex thank you again for everything, please join me in welcoming him to retirement.

Denied / Less leniency towards toxic players
« on: February 03, 2019, 09:47:57 am »
1. Describe the Suggestion: Be less lenient to those who want to shit talk. This would involve things like muting more for toxicity to others, kicking, banning etc.
2. Related link(s): https://tangoworldwide.net/cocpe.php#ethics
3. Possible positive impacts: Having a cleaner environment in general. Jailbreak seems to be let off with the idea that toxic people are allowed to be toxic. Especially with the younger players. Calling each other names, shit talking in general. It gets annoying to not have a match where some kid is arguing with some other kid because they are bad or something.
4. Possible negative impacts: Playerbase drops by 90% because everyone is being banned (really though I don't see any)
5. Which Division/Server will this idea affect: Jailbreak specifically
6. Tag the respective Staff member(s): (div staff, div managers, web admin, etc.): @Freddy ♡ this seems more like discussion talk but surely something can be done to improve in this


This post is a bit overdue, normally my yearly announcement comes on the second day of the year (on the anniversary date of TangoWorldWide). Additionally, I wanted to address some of the blowback and points made in the Issues with Tango thread. I think this is somewhere to put it all in one. Currently I am still on vacation so my apologies for the delay, but let's get started...

There has been a lot of speculation that I am incapable of running TangoWorldWide any further or that we have the intentions of shutting down in the foreseeable future. While there is some truth, that there certainly have been moments where I have considered giving the community a sunset, it is time to affirm that TangoWorldWide will continue on (and hopefully for years to come). While there is no argument in some areas there have been a decline, for those of you who have called such out, and sit on the sidelines speculating: don’t just stand by and watch it happen.

Over the last two years between poor game developer updates, terrible staff actions/choices, administrative issues, and other various things have put up quite a battle against us. Overtime, many communities face this same battle, and most fall & shutdown because of it. In some ways we've lost our battle but what has kept us going is in fighting that battle we haven't lost the foundation that makes our community what it is. For that, I'm really proud of the Executive team we have as well as all the hard working staff members and new people joining and helping us continue to grow. Given there have been considerations of closing down, there are numerous things to reflect upon, update, and eventually change moving forward to we can continue to achieve success and pursue a positive future for this community.

Welcome to Year 5 ladies and gentlemen.

Year 5
On 1/2/2019 TangoWorldWide turned 5, and it has been quite a journey. We've seen thousands of people pass through our servers, hundreds stay around and make friends, connections, and hopefully be apart of our family. We have tried making a home for everyone who wishes to stay, and we are proud we have achieved this on numerous occasions. 2019 will bring hundreds of new updates, changes, and help us gear for a more successful future moving forward.

In the closing months of 2018 we had two major acquisitions which has progressed us forward both expanding us into a new game and bringing CS:GO back into the forefront of TangoWorldWide. In October we were able to acquire STRP (SpaceTurtles RP) for FiveM. During the quality of life update period, we have had rapid growth in FiveM and are looking forward to what we can bring to the table in the future. To start off December we also acquired Fallen-Networks a community owned by @Damien. This has been a major new merger for TangoWorldWide as not only we got two very popular servers, @Damien has been making huge strides and working his ass off to improve our community (thank you for that). Overall, 2018 proved to be a good year for us rebuilding lost momentum in 2017. The future for this community looks very bright.

Changes Ahead & 2019 Goals
2019 will bring a ton of changes to TangoWorldWide. Some of those are going to be listed here, while others will progress throughout the year.
  • Roster Updates / Staff Changes - The roster will see numerous updates in 2019 both structural changes and position re-designs. In addition, the way(s) people obtain staff and maintain staff will be better defined. Such include the following, but there may be many more to come:
    • Media: Upon my return from vacation, aPn has decided it is his time to part ways from staff due to real life. He will be moved out and the media department will be dissolved. This will bring TangoWorldWide to 5 departments, balancing the Executive Board once again. The sponsorships & media portions will fall into the Executive Department while the transactions and donations will be apart of Department of Community Management.
    • Executive Department: In February, LolZ has informed me he will return to his former spot in the Executive Department as a Supervisory member. The last time that LolZ was apart of my department TangoWorldWide grew massively. I am excited to work closely with him again, and eager to see what he brings to the table this time around.
    • Human Resources: The Department of Human Resources will be altered, being so Community Leadership and Mentorship will function as one large group under the Department of HR. Hopefully a joined effort will help brings these groups back to their prior success.
    • Transparency: This will be in the Addressing 'Issues in Tango' section, however we'll give more rhyme and reason why people have positions, my views on maintaining a position, etc.
  • M for Mature - Many of our servers will feature a new [M] in front of them, meaning they are 'Intended for Mature' with laid back rules on racism, lesser punishments, and more forgiving ban time(s)
  • CSGO Expansions - Damien and his team has been hard at work to constantly expanding and fixing up CSGO. We will see new 24/7 servers in the future
  • Minecraft - Minecraft will return to the network from the efforts of Bobby and Damien. We are looking to have Skyblock, Survival, and hopefully Pixelmon upon its return.
  • Rust - Rust will return to TangoWorldWide for another go. We'll be doing custom maps on the server, led by Adam52 and focused on by ris.
  • FiveM - FiveM will continue to get QOL updates. By Summer 2019 we plan to completely re-write the server with a much larger player capacity, more features, more things to do, and really focus on expanding it.
  • RuneScape - We plan to push into RuneScape to make a large clan-chat and hopefully generate recruitment from the game.
  • Technician - Technician will be vastly expanded, bringing in more people to work on the technical backend of Tango. As I did in earlier years, I will personally train some people (Urbana, Damien, etc) to hopefully go above and beyond and work on the system administration/network administration side of TangoWorldWide.
  • Staff Training - We will be actively training staff more often. We will focus on preparing technicians and Div Staff to be successful in their roles.
  • Network API - After many memes, many setbacks as of January I will be working on an API to interface the forums and the rest of the network. Eventually this will come with a custom stat tracking system, ban system, etc. (Long overdue). Automated ranking systems, event handling, etc would be nice to come in the future.
  • Staff Applications - By Summer 2019 we will have full staff applications for certain positions! This has been on the backburner for awhile but will be completed soon.
  • Policy Rewrite - Another backburnered thing that needs to happen! CoCPEv2 will go live sometime in February.
  • Website Changes - Calander! More features, and maybe some other very large changes I don't want to promise here.
  • More Laid-Back - We will stop pushing so hard on the business face of TangoWorldWide, and focus on having a more laid back environment like prior years. For now, that current roster will stand, but in the future don't be surprised if we revert or re-invent the roster and the department system. The 'gaming community' aspect will live on.
  • Original Owners - I think it is time for us to announce that Alex, Doomy, and myself are the original owners and will carry a heavier weight on choices and decisions moving forward. The other Executives are of course appreciated, and will hold a say, however at the end of the day the community is essentially shared ownership between us three. I would like that to be known and utilized when need be.
  • Conferences! - Finally, I would like to host TSDC in 2019 and maybe Spring Ahead again to showcase network achievements, releases, and have a mass community meeting. These were popular and favored in 2016 and must return.[/b]
Addressing 'Issues in Tango' & Posts Alike
I want to collectively address the train-wreck which was the Issues With Tango post. First and foremost, I would like to comment to the individuals responsible for making that post, I am severely disappointed. Not only did you collectively create a massive problem you did it both while you knew I was on vacation (first I've ever taken from TangoWorldWide) and you posted it RIGHT before Christmas Eve. Very unprofessional, very unpleasing, very irresponsible. I will go into detail in the next few paragraphs on why I've considered shutting TangoWorldWide and equally what is responsible for me deciding to keep running it. I assure you however, things like these are the things that make me want to leave. No respect for our staff, no respect for our rules, no respect for females in the community (calling damn near every one of them out for just being female), and a lot of other things that logically should not have been there.

We wanted TangoWorldWide to be one of the elite communities and very professional, while maintaining composure and who we are behind the screen. We've achieved these goals in many ways. I would say we are one of the most professional communities out there and certainly we have became one of the largest on steam. Originally, we planned on TangoWorldWide eventually becoming an invite-only group however we exceeded any expectations we had and this was not possible at the time. We still wanted to maintain a professional aspect, and still do/will.

While I'm displeased how the post was made and how people(s) point(s) came across, I do not have any issue with being criticized, and want to publicly let it be known we welcome people to watch what we are doing and call us on our faults. In my mind, it is the only way we will get better. So thank you for using your voice, maybe not at the best time... but I do know your intentions are good. From the Issues With Tango post the following has been noted and will in some way/shape/form change or be altered:
  • We will be more transparent why people have their positions, why they maintain it, etc. I welcome ANY of you to call out ANY staff member asking why they hold their position, what they do, etc. Make a thread, I welcome it. Why? There is no need for secrets on why people maintain their position(s).
  • TangoWorldWide will stop pushing so hard on the business front, and go more to a community/chilled out vibe. We were extremely laid back in 2014-2016, however we didn't receive as much push back as now (will be addressed in next paragraph).
  • Events will be held to a higher standard, with less requirements for them.
  • Some forum sections, etc will be re-worked!

Now for every give, there's a take. For us to listen to people(s) wants, desires, and concerns we need something from the community. In the starting years the Executives were respected, and in some cases feared. Not that they would power trip, but that there was actually a punishment waiting if our rules were not followed. For us to continue to progress this community the push-back from the members needs to stop. I will not be extremely transparent, and welcome a bunch of criticism and openly allow arguments if you cannot respect our rules. Sadly, if one person or a group of people cause massive issues it does impact the community at mass. So your friends and peers here, they impact what the future might really be.

As a result of change, etc there will be more bans for poor actions. Abusing our systems, not following our rules, etc will have to result in stronger bans if we want to provide the community as everyone wants it. It is not practical for us to have to deal with people(s) shit and on the flip side listen to every demand. That is how you will lose the Executives and eventually lose the community.

Personal Recollection, Mentions, & Closing
Originally, I had wanted to shut down TangoWorldWide due to the impact it has on my life. Because of the issues that arise, the long hours, the 4am alerts of things going offline the community adversely affects my life. Going for an undergraduate degree with 5 classes a week, it wasn't easy. Now I am onto my Master's Degree and have new things going on in my life, so hopefully I can fully connect with the community once more.

Before my closing paragraph, a few shout-outs...
@Alex - Thank you for being a crazy bastard and sticking around me for like 10 years (or whatever its been). I love running this place with you, and thank you for continuing to be apart of it.
@Lt.DoomY - You as well man, thank you for continuing to help us build the network up.
@Dream @Zach @Urbana @Damien - Thank you all for pushing to make this place great. All of you have been doing a lot of work recently (I know others have too), but your names stand out for the changes you've been making, the impact, and what you've been in contact with me for.
@briana - Thank you for all the fun times, the memories, and allowing me to come into your life. I never thought the random chick that camped Room B would mean so much to me one day.
+ To those who I've missed, I appreciate our entire staff team and those individuals I constantly have the privilege of interacting with.

On a final note, of why I will carry on the community: Over the last two years the community has been nasty to me (and the other Executives). It's amazing that they want to hang around to run this community, let alone myself. Lucky for TangoWorldWide I've decided to keep running it thanks to one person in particular. While my Executive team, hard working staff, and everyone else who helps our community makes me want to improve this place, I owe a huge thank you to @briana. As many of you may know, briana and I recently got engaged. I'm still on vacation here at her house, I'll be returning over the summer. She's a big reason I want to keep this community running. I find it incredible that TangoWorldWide has served to be a platform for people to make new friends, begin relationships, and have an impact on others lives. I would not have had the opportunity of meeting my best friend and someone I've come to love very much without this place, so I would like to keep the doors open so other(s) can continue to be apart of our home here and meet people they want to interact with and find people that change their live(s) and improve them. Back when we started I loved how some people used TangoWorldWide as a home away from their real home and to this day I appreciate that we still allow people to have TangoWorldWide and the friends they make here a constant in their lives.

Thank you all for another year of TangoWorldWide, I hope to see everyone again in 2020.

I do not think 'I will wear the tag again if accepted' is an appropriate way to go.

We want the honorable program to consist of people that fully support Tango, including always being proud to wear the tag.

Re-gain member, try again in the future.

What the fuck did I miss out on here ever since I became inactive?

I could agree with all of these statements given my blind mind. By themselves they look great, but as always, there's balon to put the last jigsaw piece in and say fuck you to all that.

Should I become active again so I can witness what Tango is now?
