This is a condensed version of Gman's original suggestion made into a general outline of the team. Please post in this thread if you have any suggestions for changes, improvements or additions to the outline or team guidelines. (Bear in mind, I'd like to keep it as brief and concise as possible). Also, a proper logo for the team would be great to replace this temporary (read: rubbish) one. Strategic Team: The Strategic Team will be responsible for conducting research, organising projects and doing general legwork. The team's goal is to offer support and assistance to members proposing initiatives, and to work with them to help them progress their ideas. General responsibilities: - Seek out new campaign ideas from the war room. Consider and present their pros and cons within the thread. - Engage with the initiative's discussion and do whatever research is necessary to decide if the project is viable and has support. This may require a vote between the team. - If the project is deemed to be viable and appropriate for HTL, offer a project breakdown so that the initiative is divided into smaller tasks that can be taken up by members of the community or the team itself. The progress will be followed by the team to ensure the success of the project. Composition: The team will be composed of 8 members. Progress will initially be monitored by Clarissant and Syrin, who will also be able to offer interdepartmental support and resources to the team as necessary. The aim of the team is to provide organisational assistance and to provide groups or individuals with the resources they need to get their projects off the ground. The team should be the supportive force that helps to create momentum needed to drive HTL campaigns. It's important to note that the ST does not have power of authority on passing initiatives. The community is free to continue to suggest and work on initiatives as it always has; there's no need to wait for the ST to review and organise your idea if you're ready to get started on your own. Notes: - The team is in its experimental, early days so its remit or composition may change as necessary and will become more clearly defined in time. - Credit for this idea goes to Gmandam.
