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:
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.


Discord:
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.

@jordan Stay safe and best wishes to you.

I am super excited to see where tango goes in this next year, while I have been a member since 2017 I was absent from tango for about 2 years and in that time so much has changed, I am very grateful to be a member of the community. I look forward to hanging out with everyone as I move into my dorm in these coming weeks and begin a new chapter in my life at college.

Love yall.

I really like this new focus on the community instead of the servers

Even though this is coming from a div the reason I love this community is because of the people

Though I have only been here for around a year the people that I have met will stay with me for years.

I don't want to get to cheesy but just want to thank you Balon for making this community and as amazing as it is today

tbh I wouldn't even still be here if it wasn't for the people.When I was a vet member I became very inactive and was thinking about leaving but it was the lat night conversation with @Para @xtra @attix ( if I could list everyone we would be here for a while) and many other people that made me want to stay.

Once again thank you

« Last Edit: September 12, 2020, 12:24:19 am by Dog »

@Xtra and @Character it shows how well you have progressed in your abilities to control yourselves.
Dear @Slothy
We are thrilled to inform you that your application for supplementary admin has been accepted!
Over the following 42-72hrs you should receive your full admin.

Best regards,
