Operations Department

Good Evening! Hopefully, you are all in the process of signing up HERE, setting up your planets and buddy packs and preparing for the tickstart. At this time, on behalf of the PA Team, I would like to make you aware of some departmental changes that we are carrying out.

For those of you who were not aware, the People and Organisation department was ran in trial conditions at the end of the last round to assess whether it was a viable addition to the running of the game. After reviewing its progress, we have decided that instead of having a Strategy and a P&O department, we will form an "Operations" department, which will incorporate all previous aspects of both departments and build on them.

The mandate for this new department will be:
- Maintaining Staff Records.
- Writing Policy for PATeam.
- Setting Round Dates.
- Being the third party in resolving staff disputes
- Improving the PATeams reputation with the community
- Managing the round 19 portal and portal team (coming in the next few days)
- Developing methods to market Planetarion to its target audience
- Dealing with complaints and giving responses to complaints on the forums
- Making game announcements
- Setting long term goals

One of the main aims of the department is to improve the level of communication between the community and PATeam. We will handle game announcements, and be the first port of call for any disputes.

The head of the operations department will be myself (kal@planetarion.com) and Chef (chef@planetarion.com) will be acting as my department deputy. If anyone has any queries regarding this new department please feel free to get in touch with either of us.

Further to this, we are also looking for columnists to write articles for the new round 19 portal. These articles can be on any of the follow subjects (though we are fairly flexible).
- Opinion
- Strategy
- Fiction
- Alliance News
- Interviews
- Humour

If you are interested in getting involved with the upcoming portal please email a sample article to chef@planetarion.com or drop in for a chat with Chef on irc.netgamers.org #portal.
