Total Freedom's Executives comprise of five main ranks and are as follows,
The purpose Executives serve throughout TotalFreedom and the TF Network is to hold delegated authority from the server owner, and to fulfil a sub-set of the duties which the server owner would normally be responsible for managing.
Executive Admin Officer
Manages and maintains administrators. Handles their respective applications, administrative policies, and enforces the administrator conduct policy.
Executive Creative Designer
Manages and maintains the Master-builders. Handles their respective applications, master-builder policies, and in charge of any master-builder related project.
Manages server art (not necessarily creating it)
Executive Lead Developer
Oversees all the development activities for the TotalFreedom server, leading the development team and working with the owner and other executives to ensure the server is stable and bugs are being patches as appropriate, while also working to ensure we're running the latest server versions we can be. This role unlike the majority of others does not have a concept of assistants, and all developers are deemed assistants.
Executive Ban Manager
Manages our current indefinite ban process for the server, and as we start moving towards a network is also responsible for liaising between the various gamemodes we have running to ensure those whom should be banned across the network are banned on all servers, this is especially important while we're running a number of stand-alone servers. Due to the nature of this role the individual will be issued with Forum and Discord administrator privileges as they may be required to collate evidence and review various appeals / ban statues throughout our network and various communications channels.
Executive Community Manager
The Executive Community Manager is responsible for the health and ongoing retention of our community. This individual will be responsible for managing server events, for engagement with the community and helping to bring suggestions to the wider leadership team which will benefit the server and helping to run the server social media presence. This individual will be responsible for helping to maintain the community on all of our platforms (In-Game, on the forums, on Discord and anywhere else we may deem official in the future).
This individual will be expected to work closely with our development team to help agree priorities for features that the community are looking for, and will be expected to work closely with the Executive Server Evangelist to ensure a joined up strategy for the growth of the server. This individual will also continue to oversee any associated communities / servers with the TF Network.
Executive Marketing Manager
The Executive Marketing Manager will be responsible for the overall advertising and promotional strategy of the TF Network, bringing players in to the FreeOP Servers, and any other gamemodes we launch in the future. This individual will be expected to represent the community externally (And by extension representing ATLAS Media Group) with the end-goal of bringing more players to us.
This individual will also be expected to help coordinate and execute our social media plans, along side other individuals as appropriate and to work with the Community Manager and Lead Developer to agree on priorities for new features, gamemodes or anything else that may help attract players. This individual will also be ultimately responsible for things such as voting, which will likely play a key part in the advertising strategy, again engaging with the community manager where appropriate to do so.
Beyond the duties listed above, Executive duties include keeping a log of their and their assistants actions beyond normal administrating. This log must be posted on a public board and be updated in a timely manner.
Executive Appointments / Removals
All appointments and removals from executive status are at the sole responsibility of the server owner. Executive positions may be added and removed as the owner sees fit, and as appropriate additional executive roles may be created in order to fulfil the growing requirements of the server.
If the community feel an executive is not fulfilling their duties as an executive, their first port of call should be to raise this with the server owner, where a sensible discussion can be had.
The owner will where practical hold a formal application process for appointing new executives where the entire community will be encouraged to post feedback on the candidates whom are applying for the role(s) in question. Where this is not practical (As deemed by the owner) executives can be directly appointed.
Community Instigated Removals
ONLY In the event that engagement with the server owner has failed, the community may chose to instigate a vote off. It is however expected that the complaints are initially addressed to the server owner, and a minimum of 2 weeks is allowed for the owner to resolve the issue that has been bought forward.
In the event this dialogue has failed an executive community removal can be instigated, this will require an active executive, and 2 active senior admins to be in agreement that the vote-off can be instigated. Unless the Executive Admin Officer is the executive to be removed, the executive agreeing to the vote-off must be that individual. In the event a vote-off is agreed to be instigated a thread will be posted in the admin lounge by the original instigator with a poll asking if the executive in question should / should not be removed.
Voting Process and requirements.
Executives will no longer be voted in and their appointment is has been covered earlier in this post. The owner may chose to hold a public vote to confirm an appointment of a new executive, or to help chose who should therefore be appointed, this vote will not necessarily mandate the final decision made by the owner.
As a general rule of thumb executives should look to avoid appointing assistants to assist in their day to day duties, especially as often the executive role will be the primary responsibility of the individual in question. Where an assistant is deemed required by the executive, they may appoint no more than 1 assistant. An executive assistant may at no point also be an active executive, the individual who is being asked to act as both assistant and full executive will have the choice as to which role they wish to take on.
Restrictions on Executive Assistants and their appointment may be imposed by the server owner as they see appropriate. Executive Assistants are not deemed to be of a higher rank or status on the server beyond their standard administrative role.
Voting out Executives.
At the owners discretion they may wish to hold a poll to establish if the community feels that the executive has been fulfilling their duties. There will not however be one automatically.
