Denied / Re: Credits Group Boost
« on: March 12, 2021, 02:01:01 pm »
While these suggestions are good, the implementation is quite complicated and not really possible at the given state.

1. the credit boost is for ALL servers, not just JB. So here you are only giving an incentive to JB players. Say we want to expand it network wide -- now we must track player activity everywhere. What if they play gmod, fivem, etc? They are still supporting tango in other servers but get no time logged...

2. the credit boost was designed to reward members for being IN TANGO. the idea is to create more reason to be in tango, as a conversion from registered -> member is one of our greatest assets (a new user that may end up in staff, helping us grow, etc)

3. issuing boosts do not work as easy as, oh ill do 1.5x for this person, and 2.5x for this for a 4x boost. The way the filters work in SP unfortunately will multiply, not add... thus we'd end up with outrageous growing boosts.

this going back to... the credit boost was designed to reward members for being IN TANGO. the idea is to create more reason to be in tango, as a conversion from registered -> member is one of our greatest assets (a new user that may end up in staff, helping us grow, etc)

I don't wish people to pity me for being drunk but my actions from last night do not reflect myself irl.


Then don't get drunk at 15/16?? Ik we are neutral with each other and I'm not tryna sound like a dick but drink responsibly. There is a reason for alcohol to be legal at the age of 21.. Your actions do reflect on you being drunk btw.... Always take accountability for your mistakes

Freebies & Giveaways / Giving away 2 months of Discord Ntiro!?!!??!
« on: February 25, 2021, 12:02:59 pm »
Like and comment for best chances each action counts as 1 ticket into the pot :)

I'll pull the winners in like 5-6 days

Best of luck to all you gamers

note this is not classic nitro it's plain discord nitro so you get 2 sever boosts. You should use one of those on discord.gg/tango

bro gusy hes a no lkifer he scogulkd bein !!! laike guys hea has no alife gusy!1

honestly hasn't really done much other then become an admin on jb and apply for 7 forum groups

Yeah, here we have the story of two young kids who joined our community around the same age(s).

@ldcommish has achieved staff, has been an extremely active member of our community, has given good input, has high ambitions to contribute to our community, and does more than any person his age that I know. Hell, most times when I interact with him at all I forget his age that is how mature he acts and what he brings forth for our community. He will be apart of the future of this community.

Now, lets review you @abc, since you think you have the grounds to make a judgment on someone else's contributions:
  • 184 posts, three warnings in that time, two for low quality / shit posting
  • zero notable contributions to our community, could not make it past memberr
  • VAC banned TWO VAC Bans
  • Multiple bans on our network

Absolute disgrace to our community, please consider exiting promptly. If not, I'm sure your name will find its' way to my ban command eventually.

1. First Name: Josh

2. Age: 17

3. Timezone: EST

4. How long have you been an official member?: I think approaching 2 years in like 2 months

5. Are you comfortable reaching a weekly recruitment goal?: idk how much it is but i bet i can do it

6. Were you referred to apply?: Yes, by Ryan (otherwise known as the community leadership General operations staff) and my inner self

7. Do you administrate on any of the servers?: I can admin all of the servers but I focus on JB due to being JB Div.

8. What servers do you use and for how many hours each week?: JB and I'd say upwards of 10-15 hours a week.

9. What made you apply for Mentor?: I'd like to see JB specifically grow and community leadership general operations staff kept harassing me and sending gorilla shit to my doorstep.

10. Who have you recruited into the community?: Since I used to be in Community Leadership when it was still around, I'd say I have recruited at least 30+ people. Just an educated guess though.

11. What is the best part of Tango?: The inner-community is something that I think most people find addicting. Not really in a bad way but in a very good way. The environment is very fun to be around and makes being in Tango worth it.

12. What is the worst part of Tango?: I feel there is a lot of potential for positive change but a lot of good ideas are kept hidden. Bringing in new people and discovering their thoughts and opinions on the server is something I think deserves some of the most attention and is what will lead Tango to succeed.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

13. What would you change about Tango?: I feel that more focus towards recruiting new players is a must. The need for an active and consistent player base is something that every community needs. Tango has many people who are great people and have found their way to the community through the servers. The higher ranking of the servers = the more people that can discover Tango through things like gametracker or other community server websites which in turn leads to more people being involved and joining the inner-community and providing another positive personality to the community. The more people we have coming back to the servers, the better.

14. What differs you from other applicants?: I have a ton of experience and have been around the community for a decent amount of time and spoke with hundreds of people.

15. Why do you want to see Tango grow?: I wish for others to have the same experience I did with meeting nice people and enjoying themselves by talking with others and possibly finding their own friend group. It's something many people need to have positive mentality and changes many lives.

16. If I was interested in joining Tango how would you convince me to join?: There's a bunch of cool people there, by joining you will be able to be more involved with those people and make tons of memories, win free shit, and test things that you probably wouldn't have.

17. To you what is the importance of having the Mentor division in Tango? Probably the most important thing. Tango needs a group to focus on keeping things in line as well as bringing in new people. Without it, many people will not aim to join Tango or understand what positive things Tango has to offer.

18. Is there anything else you'd like to add?: I can drive boats pretty well so I can teach the youth about that and I am a professional Wizard101 player many people can confirm

Alex one time vouched my application which is pretty cool too bad he's a baptiste main and has a golden gun for that mother fucker

On January 2nd we started the 8th year of TangoWorldWide. Created on January 2, 2014 we have been a community for 7 years, and over that time a lot has changed. We've had not thousands, but over a million players connect to our servers, our discord, our website and at one point or another. TangoWorldWide has served as a home away from home since its' creation, and in 2021 we intend to capitalize on our foundation and keep moving forward.

The year of 2020 was a challenging one for all of us. From a global pandemic that has had an impact on each and every one of us, to calls against social injustice world-wide, political divide, and overbearing challenges we've all had to surpass. While we've all faced so many things as individuals, and as a community, we are proud that TangoWorldWide has continued on to provide a platform to create friends, develop relationships, and have an escape from real life... especially when everything we know has been contested.


Responding to the Conversation
A few days ago I made the thread Creating Conversation as a response to the community's feedback and outcry against Addressing our Future where we announced our CS:GO servers would function primarily in a legacy state and we would begin to downscale our network and focus solely on Discord. We have since reversed this decision and are thankful for the considerable feedback in Creating Conversation. From this thread, we have received tremendous feedback which is extremely helpful in aiding us to plan changes for our future. Effective immediately the following has come of this thread and that first staff meeting:
  • The first staff meeting of each calendar month will be open to the community in our Discord.
  • Meetings that have a community related aspect will be more commonly hosted in Discord, over favor of Teamspeak.
  • The member system will be adjusted, removing the tiers of Novice and Member ranks, resulting in only one 'Novice' and one 'Member' role.
  • Staff Applications will be opened for the first time in our community's history.
  • There will be a community survey, and more changes will be presented during Open Staff Meetings for direct and immediate feedback.
  • The Supporter role will return to TangoWorldWide in a modified capacity.
  • We've outreached to previous developers and contributors to build a team of individuals to continue to push our community forward.
  • We will be working towards more TangoWorldWide Member-Exclusive features such as whitelist servers, member only giveaways, etc.
Through the feedback provided, we have already seen significant positive feedback from all aspects our community: our activity, our numbers, and most importantly our members.


Accountability & Realization
This section could be simply left out or modified, but I think it extremely important to stay accountable and express the different thing(s) I've learned as the Owner of this community over the past several years. As far as accountability goes, as I said in our Open Staff Meeting and I will repeat here: I would like to formally apologize to everyone who I have failed over the last several years. To the staff who depended on me for guidance, which I simply brushed past as things in my life got busy and I lost interest in the community. To the members who have relied on an effective and efficient owner to continue to build the network they enjoy being apart of. And to each and every person who I have otherwise not retained, not reached out to, and not shown care to your issues with our community, departure, or otherwise unease. I got comfortable, I stopped, "wanting more". I stopped pursuing growth, and accepted the community as it was. This is unacceptable, and hopefully in these changes and what we will continue to see -- I can prove to our user-base has long passed. Life did get in the way for awhile, but I should have either passed the community on to someone else, shut it down, or stepped back up sooner. Thank you to each and every person who has stood by us and continued to believe in us. You are what makes it possible to write about 7 successful years of TangoWorldWide. For that, I sincerely thank you.

In accepting responsibility and holding myself accountable, there is also a lot of place for growth and realization. It was my error of thought and judgement to assume people would stay for many years. Growing up and maturing myself over the last few years has shown me my time is valuable and scarce at different periods. Some people grow up, and move on. It is something that I (and we all) have to accept. I am so thankful for the things to which @Alex and @Lt.DoomY did to help build this community. I can honestly say I could not have had better friends to have my back and help me lift this place up. It is time I accept they have moved on, and while I hope the day comes they may return, I cannot hold up the community waiting. It was an error of judgement to bring myself down when I saw staff leave around me, it is difficult because many of them are long time friends and seeing them step away due to change of interests, disagreements, or whatever the case is taxing, but something I will need to continue to work on moving forward. To all former staff, not just my previous ownership: thank you for your contributions and helping make TangoWorldWide what it is. If you left on disagreement, peace, whatever the case may be: while we are no longer in contact please know I do still appreciate your contributions.


Changes & Our Future
It is time to talk about the various changes which have been implemented and will continue to over next several weeks. Some of these changes have been suggested by the community, or long coming from staff. I have included an estimate with each thing coming, which should suggest our completion date:

  • [Live Now][Feb 2021] New CS:GO Server (surf server [rotation (or) 24/7 kitsune])
  • [Live Now][Feb 2021] Model case added (Fortnite Case #1)
Outside of the specific features and upcoming changes we are reviewing more content for the CS:GO store such as: more models, fortnite emotes, auras, and other content. We have changed coming to our website (design and code implementations), as well as changes to events and various plans for our future.


In the coming months, we will be much more vocal and communicative to our user-base. We want direct feedback to know how we are doing, where we are going, and on what is to come. Thank you for another successful year of TangoWorldWide, 2021 we will add new content, continue to rebuild core areas of our organization, and most importantly, keep moving forward.

Accepted / Re: Mentor Again
« on: January 04, 2021, 09:43:11 pm »
+Vouch, briefly said he should be active and also mentioned playing prophunt. Past member with a lot of experience, if he wants to play prophunt (and hopefully recruit for it) that's an added bonus for me.

Loo and myself briefly spoke about it but obviously will be active on gmod. I need that nostalgic rush again :3
