I don't know about you, but I love using forums! It's a great place to reach out to a number of people from different areas to get their opinions and ideas as well as learn about each other!
I am inviting all of you to tell us what you want to see on the News Forums. Are short, twice a month interviews with officers/members something you want to see? Stream lists? Topic of the month?
Tell us what interests YOU!

Topic of the Month would be great if it would be for a different Division each month. This way the Divisions will get a bit more advertising, and perhaps members. (Or TAW people that will check out said game.)
Interviews with Officers might require the Newsletter people to know a lot (or all) of the games TAW plays. It is a lot of work, but once again might be good advertising if posted with screenshots of the game.
TBH I'd like to see something about our highest ranked members, I barely know my Corps Commander Subrat, and know less (not to say nothing) about our big boss, mr. Commander In Chief.
Hope I helped you with this o7
"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it."
Doing something Division specific would be interesting. We could let everyone know about any recent changes (game wise and Division wise) as well as discuss the different aspects of the game. Someone on the fence may just get that extra push they need to have fun in a new game!
The people in the Newsletter Division play several games and are a pretty social bunch. While getting to know people across the many Divisions that TAW has would be extensive, I'm sure there is some good laughs and fun to be had when attending a few practices or playing with the members. One thing I have learned is that the more people I get to know, the more the TAW community appeals to me.
I like the idea of getting to know the higher ranked members, too! Not many people get the privilege of talking with someone in Central Command. For some, it would almost be like getting a call from the big bosses at work where your immediate response is that you are in MAJOR trouble. I'll have to send that idea up my chain of command.
Thanks a lot for your input! I really appreciate hearing from our members!
Good stuff Cleonalla!
Thanks, Cherry! Let us know if you have something you're interested in seeing as well! This is open to everyone in TAW!
Maybe interviews with some division leader? Like ask what they do on a normal training and information about the division.
Having news by all divisions and promoting games would be awesome. It can start by Squads that take part in tournaments and covering their best plays and team news cause players should be the no.1 focus not the officers above them. (for teams that are competing in tournaments f.i. in LoL , teams that are actively playing in ESL tours, in CS:GO teams that are playing in CEVO or other leagues.)
Also in can expand by presenting games to whole community. It's kind of bad in year 2015 (soon 2016) people not to be aware of all the games that exist in this place. For example i didn't know anything about Dayz or Insurgency that exist here so i had to search for myself about these games that aren't top tier as far as popularity is concerned.
Last but not least, it can offer greater publicity to events that are planned like USO Charity Stream made by LL or event that we do have to search for info by ourselves such as DCS Cups.
I hope my feedback is enough for you to get you going.
P.S. Greetings to former LL guys that joined NEWS Division!
Well first of all I'm Really glad to see that even though you just joined yesterday or the day before you are already making an effort to improve our community, something we need more of. So, Thanks.
Now, Personally i would like to see alot more about games in general no matter what it may be, but maybe look at the games in TAW it self and go through Forums and Information on these games to provide us more information about Games (Bug Fixes, Updates, Plans... Etc.) Thats Really it i guess lol.
Thanks For Being A Brodette
Thanks everyone! I am loving this feedback.
I'm a big fan of the idea to discuss specific games and events, even official game events like tournaments and such. There are games we do in TAW that I am interested in learning about and I can see I'm not the only one.
The forums seem to be an easy place to access dates for reference as well. Posts here should be, for the most part, relatively short so that it'll be quick and informative. I don't want to weigh someone down with words (which I seem to be good at).
I am also happy to see that you appreciate these efforts. I don't think Terephim expected me to be so passionate as soon as I came on board. I'm full of surprises! 2016 is going to be a revolutionary time for our Division and I am super excited to be part of the team!
I really loved reading the interviews from battalion, division and corp commanders about what and how they do their stuff!
The almighy one is on your side... if autobalance dont switch me to the other team.
Stories from the members (NCO's and below), those who just log in and have a great time.
Or stories as described on this blog post:
I would love to see a lot more specific Division focused news. For upcoming changes in their division or upcoming events they might plan.
I also loved seeing In-The-Scope articles in TAWs "From the Battlefield" Where you focus on a specific member or officer and get some views from them.
I would love to see more frequent Scope articles.
I am also in favor of more In-TheScope articles.
This is really getting a lot of amazing feedback! I am impressed to say the least. Thank you all and keep the ideas coming!!!
Just so everyone knows, I'm making a list of these suggestions as they're coming in. I'm seeing that a good bit of you have some interests in common. Even if what you want to see has already been said, still let us know! The more we hear from the TAW family, the better. Tell us what you miss about a specific element or what you feel is missing.
If the community didn't want to hear what is going on, we wouldn't have a purpose. The News Division is here to provide you with the information you feel is important or entertaining in addition to the things that we all just NEED to know as part of the community. We want you to look forward to it!
