Caretaker Thoth and the Seven Castes, Wider and Wilder Exposure, and the Adjectives used

Yesterday (and Today) has been one of tremendous change. Nine new ranks have been created within our community, we’ve introduced an advancement process, refocused the Pharaohs, and that was just the opening act.

Today we’re introducing the Mee6 bot to our discord server. Over the coming days and weeks we will be fine tuning and configuring the bot to best serve our community with our needs. Don’t ask me how, since right now I don’t know. This is a project for the Pharaohs to help figure out. Tl;dr post more, advance your rank.

Next up, we’re fine tuning our server’s structure. As you’ve probably read before, we’ve spent a lot of time trying to make our Discord server as easy to use as possible. I went a bit overkill in breaking up everything into a litany of categories rivaling the number of billions paid out by the Catholic Church over the years covering up… things. While we’re keeping the game permissions, we’re significantly reducing the category clutter. This should make the community much more visitor and member friendly.

Connie, one of our up and coming members, is currently on the fast track to become a Pharaoh. We need to iron out just a couple details, after which she’ll be skipping the Merchant post altogether and zooming straight into the College. What gives? I’ll tell you: she’s agreed to take over responsibility for our Twitter and Facebook presence, and to be the chief architect of our efforts to bolster community engagement. If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering how she’s gonna accomplish all this. Her boyfriend assures me she’s amazing*.

In the coming days, I will be looking at listing our server online with various discord listing sites to help increase unrelated interest and potential membership. No further information is available at this time.

Moving on, there is a new requirement that I’m expecting of all of my Deities. I will be expecting them to each interact with each member from the Guilds and College on a regular basis. At any time, I want to be able to ask them 1. When was the last time they talked to a specific member, and 2. What the nature of their conversation was, and 3. In the event it wasn’t privately personal, what the conversation actually contained. This is something that I believe will help ensure that my Council is adequately attentive and aware of the needs of Duat.

Finally, starting with this week, I will be outlining both weekly and monthly goals that I expect to be able to exceed. Some of these will be targeted towards the Deities, others towards the Pharaohs, and still others may be geared towards the Guilds or even the Metropolis. I’ll be publishing them on our website so that we can start working on our transparency. I’m also hoping to increase visitation to our site. It’s been feeling a tad neglected**.

*not the actual adjective used to describe Connie. **I’m inferring based on lack of wider usage.
