NEW Scheming Skeever Member Requirements Starting 6.1.21!

posted May 31, 2021, 7:01 PM by SaSa The Singing Skeever

NEW!
Here are the NEW Scheming Skeever Membership Monthly Requirements:

1) 10k per MONTH contribution - if done as gold it needs to be 10k or more in ONE bulk deposit (i.e. NOT spread out over the month). All of the same sources for contributions count as before: raffle tickets, gold donation, auction purchase, item donation, or auction donation. (Officers, Fortune 500 or Generous Skeevers are still exempt.)

2) Member may be removed during the month if two of the three following  conditions are met:
     A) not online within the last 14 days
     B) no sales within the last 14 days
     C) current monthly contribution has not been made

3) Member rollover will happen at the end of the month and at that point any members who are still Endangered rank (i.e. haven't made the monthly contribution), will be removed.

We will be working on updating the FAQ sometime mid-June, so keep an eye out for that!

NEW Inactivity Policy - May 7, 2020

posted May 7, 2020, 9:12 AM by SaSa The Singing Skeever

Because of the high volume of players in the game, we are instituting an inactivity policy change. Any player who has been inactive for 14 days AND HAS NOT SOLD ANYTHING in the guild store will be removed. Otherwise, the 30 day inactivity policy remains in effect. Removed Skeevers can always request a reinvite once they are back in the game.

Please use the form on this website to get invited back (or better yet - mail SaSa in game).

March Madness and MORE!

posted Mar 1, 2020, 12:18 PM by SaSa The Singing Skeever   [ updated Mar 1, 2020, 12:23 PM ]




So working full-time and being a GM can truly be a struggle. Over the past couple of months I have implemented changes to help reduce that load while still providing updates and information to members.

But before I talk about the changes made in the last two months, I am so amazingly pleased to announce…

Skeever March Madness!

One of our members, Glorious, has INCREDIBLY donated a 5000 Crown Bonus prize EVERY WEEK IN MARCH! Right after Glorious made their offer, then Schoolmarm offered a 3000 Crown Bonus prize for the first Saturday’s raffle. Added to our monthly 2500 Crown prize on the 3rd Saturday, are offering a LOT of valuable Crown prizes to our members! If you are gold-rich and crown poor, this is THE MONTH to enter the raffle!

Saturday, March 7

Weekly Trivia Pick Your Prize Raffle + 5000 Crown Bonus Prize + 3000 Crown Bonus Prize followed by our Monthly Auction

Saturday, March 14 Weekly Trivia

Pick Your Prize Raffle + 5000 Crown Bonus Prize followed by our Skeever Romp

Saturday, March 21

Weekly Trivia Pick Your Prize Raffle + 5000 Crown Bonus Prize + 2500 Crown Bonus Prize followed by a House Party hosted by Geekmeowt

Saturday, March 28 Weekly Trivia Pick Your Prize Raffle + 5000 Crown Bonus Prize followed by Jester’s Festival Guild Event


Of course, we’ll still be having Thursday night Trials/Event groups and Saturday night Trivia. NEW - volunteer to be a Trivia MC and get promoted to Generous for 30 days! Contact LadyLavender to get on our trivia schedule.



Stream-Lined Skeevers

As I already mentioned, there have been a number of changes to Skeever operations the last couple of months. For those interested, I have included more details about why (and in some cases how) we’ve made them.


Raffles

When we first started our Pick Your Prize Raffles, we were pretty happy to get to 10 prizes a week. However, as the trading game grew more intense and increased our need to raise funds, these raffles grew to giving out 30 or more prizes a week. We are super proud of our unique raffle, which gives so much choice to our members. This is rooted in the belief that we wanted to help members help themselves through our events (even through something as mundane as a raffle!) - and that different players focus on different aspects of the game. But each winner requires a minimum of 3 mails per prize: one to notify the winner, one for the winner to send back their choices, and one (or more) to send those prizes back. By sending out half the prizes and making them worth twice as much, we’ve been able to substantially reduce the amount of time we spend each week in raffle prize distribution, while being able to offer additional high-priced items as prizes.


Membership Ranks

The original thought about the ranking system was to front load information about whether or not someone had purchased raffle tickets any given week. This was in direct response to shutting down the guild’s gold information access. We were worried that people would be upset that they couldn’t see the record of their guild deposits. It also allowed me to send very targeted reminder mails to members. We really do feel that this is a supportive community, and we never  want to just kick members if we can at all help it.


When we started this system it was VERY time-consuming, but with experience, I was able to reduce the time spent on it. But after 8 months of practice, I realized that it was just about as efficient as it was going to be. It was taking about 45 minutes to an hour each night to record tickets and do promotions. In fact, I was doing about 130 - 200 promotions per week. Because of the complexity of this system, it was very hard for me to delegate many of the most onerous membership tasks. 


So, after researchmonkey made the comment that I was not good at delegating, I realized that it was because I had created a behemoth of a system that didn’t ALLOW me to delegate. This epiphany made me rethink my original premises. So, instead of promoting every time someone purchased a raffle ticket or made a donation, I decided to make this promotion once a month. This will happen the first time in a month when someone donates or buys raffle tickets. This means that we expect members to contribute each calendar month, instead of each 30 days. Additionally, I was able to solicit the help of AliasBurn and EgoHazard to help keep promotions up to date, taking on more of that load as well.


Since I didn’t need weekly raffle ranks, I was able to re-split out the Founding Skeever, Generous Skeevers, and Fortune 500 Skeevers ranks. This has made updating those ranks MUCH easier and faster to do. For more in-depth descriptions on those ranks, please check out the webpage HERE!


Donor Acknowledgements

I have tried (and usually failed) to send weekly mails about Skeevers who donate to the guild. So, my plan is to do one announcement a month, in Discord, to acknowledge these wonderful folks.


We know with absolute certainty, that our guild is only great, because of our amazing supporters and members. Thanks so much for making this such an amazing guild!

Stay Cheesy!

From the Big Cheese!

posted Jan 13, 2020, 4:15 PM by SaSa The Singing Skeever

I’d like to announce some more important Skeever changes.

To make things more manageable, we’re making the following changes to our Skeever raffles:

-1 prize per 200 paid entries

-Prize pool values will be doubled


Generous Skeever rank will now be granted for 30 days per 100k in donations. This is due to the increased benefit of Plus 1 prizes.


To kick this off, we will be hosting DOUBLE trivia on Saturday night (with me!), followed by our weekly raffle with DOUBLE Bonus Crown prizes. (2500 each)


Next week, we will be kicking off our first Skeever House Party. More details to come!


Stay Cheesy!

Hey Skeevers! Know what time it is?

It’s our 5th Skeeversary!!!


And do we have a week of Skeeversary fun for you all!


First, we will be doing a special raffle week! Starting on Monday, November 18@approximately 8pm each day - we will be giving away a Pig A Day in the form of the Bristleneck War Boar. Because what does every Skeever need? MORE PACK SPACE! If you already have the pig, you will get 1200 crowns instead!


So that’s FIVE Porcine Pack animals throughout the week - so you’d be best to enter early and often! Because the earlier you enter, the more chances you have to win - BECAUSE ONCE YOU’VE BOUGHT TICKETS - THEY STAY IN THE ENTIRE WEEK!


Then, on Saturday, Nov 23, we will be having DOUBLE TRIVIA with GM @SaSa2112! Lots of chances to win gold and special prizes!


After trivia, we will be doing a SPECIAL Skeeversary raffle. This will NOT be a Pick Your Prize raffle, but instead, we will be giving away some BIG prizes including: 

  • 5000 Crowns - because 5 is such a special number this year! This means you could choose to get your very own kitty banker/merchant or other giftable items/upgrades totaling up to 5000 Crowns! (SaSa2112 & Aparpalyptic)

  • Home Skeeve Home - a HOUSE - worth up to 500k! (Finnisterre)

SKEEVERSARY BUILD CONTEST

We will be hosting a special furnishing build contest! The three categories are: Skeeversary Cake, Skeever Statue, and Best Party Scene! You can enter once in each category. Please contact @Finnisterre for more info. Entries are due 6pm EST on Saturday, Nov 23. Guild voting determines the winner. Winners will be announced Sat, Nov 30 after the raffle! Winners will receive some fabulous furnishing prizes! We also hope to do a mini-tour of entries after Saturday night’s raffle.

Thanks to everyone for making Skeevers such a great guild to be a part of!

Membership Contribution Change!

posted Jun 18, 2019, 6:00 PM by SaSa The Singing Skeever

In light of recent ZOS events, we have decided to change the Skeever's contribution policy. You must make a 1k contribution every 30 days. You can do this by buying a raffle ticket, donating gold, buying/donating an auction item, or donating items appropriate for our raffle prize pool (min 1k). Buying/selling will no longer count as a contribution. We face increasing pressure to meet higher bid prices for our guild trader.

Because some folks missed the memo (and deposited tickets into the guildbank when we couldn't see), we are offering ANOTHER Bonus Kitty Banker/Merchant prize! PLUS you can deposit your tickets directly into the guildbank again!

Thanks for your continued support! -SaSa

Important Elsweyr Announcement!

posted May 26, 2019, 11:13 AM by SaSa The Singing Skeever

I hope you all are enjoying Elsweyr. The new expansion includes a Guild Finder, and as a result, we have been flooded with membership applications. This is a just a heads up that the the 30 day inactivity/contribution policy will be more strictly enforced to make room for new members. Remember, if you simply buy or sell through the guildstore every 30 days, you will be fine. However, if you play in offline mode regularly OR if you change your username and don't tell us, it's very likely you will get reaped/booted as well. Reaped folks can always ask for reinvitation to the guild.

THIS IS NOT PERSONAL - it's just practical. 

I will no longer be sending warning letters to folks falling behind. That being said - I am sure to make a mistake occasionally and will kick someone who shouldn't have. Please let me know if that happens.

Stay Cheesy!
SaSa
