  3. Kokoro Academy - Student Council Activities Help captain run Kokoro! We'll be doing lots of things, and there will be lots duties to fulfill and ways to be involved. Gauge the state of Kokoro and provide feedback Help plan events Helping orient students Frequency We would have a meeting once every two weeks Organiser's General Availability Monday to Friday 11am SLT to 5pm SLT Weekends 1am SLT to 5pm SLT
  4. I decided to implement a deadline for recruitment for numerous reasons:- They create urgency. With a set time limit, you can't continuously put off getting your club members. Demonstration of leadership. It demonstrates to me whether or not the club organiser will indeed be capable of recruiting and managing members in their club, getting them to do what they need to do and be able to carry out tasks in a reasonable time frame. Maintenance of standards. A student should expect to find that any official club at Kokoro has a reasonable level of activity and an organiser who is actively involved in organising their club. It also ensures that all members of the club are registered and able to be reached through the school's forum system. As the sim being students only does not affect students access to Kokoro, I do not feel this is the case. I feel two weeks is a reasonable amount of time for the organiser to ask around and get people to sign up to their club. If an organiser really could not find four other people among the 40 other active students after reaching out to them all I have to ask myself if there was really an interest in the club to begin with too. I am aware that Nise intends to sign up but has had technical difficulties, I will grant 3 days for her only whilst this is sorted out, but the club still needs to find one more member today. I'm not going to grant further extension than this, as Maki was well informed of the requirements both from the thread she got her application from and me after she proposed her club. We do not currently have a student council, we did consider something like this in the past but that is a topic for another thread. The thread that Maki took her application form from states the time limit and the minimum number of members. I also reminded her immediately after I approved the club of what she had to do next, and how long she had to do it, to which whilst she disagreed with, she had most definitely read. I reminded Maki again after a week had passed. I feel that Maki was adequately informed in this case. Fair question. I think 30 days after a rejection is a reasonable amount of time before allowing another proposal from the same student. I want to make sure that when club applications are submitted the organiser is not just trying over and over again but submitting because they intend to succeed. --- Of course, there is nothing to stop Maki doing Photography with you and Nezu in the mean time or finding other people who like photography too. I just want to make sure that any student club acting in an official capacity at Kokoro maintains a reasonable level of standards and activity.
  5. Time is running out to sign up to this club. Currently there are an insufficient number of students who have registered their interest. For a club proposal to be approved at Kokoro it must start with a minimum of four club members excluding the organizer. Currently only two students have registered their interest. For this club to go ahead, two more students must sign up. Tomorrow (the 22nd) is the last day.

    Ticket System

    We're thinking about a new system is being thought about that would affect the way that new visitors visit the School Campus

    The Problem

    When Kokoro's doors were open, we would often have guests who would come to 'be around' our students, but would not make an effort to socialize or let our students get to know them. This resulted in social suffocation as nobody wants to talk about personal matters with their friends around strangers.

    Kokoro became busier in recent months and had started to see heavier traffic, we began to see crowds forming on campus of effectively strangers who are not integrated into Kokoro. Such people often gain a sense of entitlement from simply having spent time being there which as an admin means constantly confronting people about their behavior and trying to get them integrated which can be overwhelming.

    In the end the requirement for so much active effort on our side and what students were putting up with became too much and we simply closed our doors. That is a problem in itself as it stops new people from having a chance.

    The Proposed Solution

    We would have a ticket system at Seiiki's Cable Car Station. Guests who are not students would be required to obtain a ticket from the ticket machine to pass through the ticket barriers and travel into school grounds on the cable car. The machine would only issue a limited number of these tickets per guest per month.

    By limiting how often a guest can visit school grounds per month by default, it changes our relationship with problematic guests and places the burden of making an effort and integration on them. A guest would therefor have to show enough good will during their stay that students will vouch for them to stay and be given a chance.

    It is hoped that such a solution would reduce the stress felt by us as sim traffic increases providing a more manageable situation to socialization of guests - We want to grow our community and welcome new people in, but we want to do it at a sustainable rate and maintain an enjoyable environment for our students.

  9. This club has been approved, and is now recruiting members. If you would like to sign up, please register your interest below and provide your general availability in SLT.
  10. I have spoke with Maki and it will be difficult for her to have a set time and day when meetings would be held as her schedule changes week by week. Therefor the time and day of club meetings will need to be organized on a weekly basis. Prospective club members will need to check club announcements to see when the meeting will be on a given week. Maki will make an effort to hold her meeting at a time when you have stated you are available. Please state your timezone and general availability below when signing up to this club. TLDR - New Members Read the Bold Bits!
  11. Doin station stuff

    Thinking shift the entrance up to where the town buildings are right in the middle so people find it easier...

  13. In two weeks time on Sunday the 5th of September at 2PM SLT we will be doing our first ever official student yearbook photo. The event will be a once in (Kokoro's) lifetime opportunity to meet and learn about so many of your fellow class-mates, connect with the new, re-connect with the old and make a memory to take home. We want this day to include everybody old and new and indeed I have reached out personally to many of you yesterday who were around in Kokoro's early days to be a part of things too and will continue to do so. Kokoro has Changed To our oldies, Kokoro was largely an informal affair for the most part. My leadership (or lack of) style at the time was to simply try to please everyone, even those who may have made other guests feel down. Over the years that has changed and I am less receptive of those things than I used to be and much more willing to take action where I feel necessary. Some behaviors that used to be tolerated (and perhaps even participated in by me) will not be any more. This includes things like:- Passing comments about a students appearance or other forms of ridicule. Coming to 'be around' us, without making the effort to engage with the people you are around or get to know them or let them know you. Prying about 'who a person really is' asking them if they are an alt etc. In the past we would not have acted on those things and perhaps even seen some of them as 'banter' but we've come to realize how they affect members of the community and make them uncomfortable. Be aware that we take these things seriously now and if me or one of our admins feels you have been participating in these types of act you will simply be removed from the sim - Don't do it. Getting together When the day comes, there may be lots of people who have never met you before, have a think about what you would like everyone to know about you. What are your hobbies? What kind of job do you do? Are you studying? Is there something interesting about where you live? What would you like to achieve as a student at Kokoro? We will make sure everybody gets an opportunity to learn a little bit about everyone, so we are all at least a little bit familiar with each other and can connect over things and have fun. It'll be a good opportunity to see what Kokoro's students are interested in and perhaps a good starting point to think about what kind of clubs and classes students would enjoy in the future. Till then ~ Captain
