Ok, I guess it's time for my response.
When I was placed in Leadership of Taliban, numbers were low. If you've played for a bit you'd realise this tends to be a regular occurrence for Taliban. One thing I first tackled when entering leadership was a promotion logs alongside new activity enforced, hence watching some old faces such as Jarrad, Goosebumps ect to disappear. When Taliban goes into these little spurts of activity crisis there is only so much one can do especially when no one tries to maintain the activity to get promoted. Now I'll move onto point a few things out, shall I;
As much as you may think nothing has been done or attempted, I'll gather some announcements that have been made solely from myself with attempt to boost activity and try set stands for my Chiefs. Now stepping to the point of solely placing people in charge of regiments to fix them, I've tried this. I gave quite a few people rank to attempt to revive a faction but to no surprise they left due to "too much effort" needed to fix it when constant possibility for asking for help was clearly available.
So unless you know more, please don't jump in saying I do fuck all. I try get whats best for my chiefs done and it is work.
I wanted to make this clear, the positions people hold in Taliban, especially Chiefs need to be accompanied by competence. If you are directly in a case of doubt, conflict of general misunderstanding. Don't hesitate, contact me. I don't want Chiefs to lose motivation due to little occurances that will test your patiences. Obviously there will be things you may not be able to handle, but I am hear to help and attempt to assist in these cases. Leaving things and showing incompetence will eventually just result in removal of ranks. @everyone
Due to the major drop of Taliban players, it is now requested for all Chiefs to partake with advertisement. Meaning, everyone now and again a simple /gc alongside an advertisement like so; "You've survived this long huh? Join Taliban today to continue to stay alive alongside Elite regiments, freedom and chill Chiefs. Contact us via global communications." @everyone
I am going to suggest the start of training directly targetting shooting (trigger discipline, muzzle discipline, recoil control ect), I don't mind the manor of which it is conducted/scheduled but please ensure no balloons are used. If you have any questions/enquiries, please contact me. @everyone
If some of you are wondering ways you'll be recognised for promotions, here are some ways. - Leadership. This is a big one I will generally look for, the ability to maintain leadership within your regiment and ensure they're performing to the best of their ability. - Activity. To some this will seem obvious, a key to a good regiment is an active leader. An active leader encourages your peers to attempt to match activity and attempt to perform to the best of their abilities at all times. - Competence. Another big skill I look at, the ability to remain competent in times of player drout, loss of chiefs ect. - Passion. Not all will hold this, but seeing this is HUGE. Seeing a leader with passion just ensures you that they're always attempting to perform and achieve things to the best of their ability. - Communication. Maintain communication is also a key point, this isn't only with your higher ranking this is also with your regiment. Maintaining communication with your regiment ensures me and surely them that their leader is constantly their in the case of need and always listening. I'm sure I could go on and on, but these are just a few things that I look for when I consider promotions for any Chief, if you have any questions or enquiries be sure to contact me. @everyone
In the near future Taliban will be receiving trainees, alongside this a commanding officer like regiment will accompany it. The ranking system regarding is yet to be decided, hopefully with the implemention of this, it will introduce more knowledge in newer ranking Taliban instead of leaving them clueless most of the time on swap. Training rooms on each faction will only contain information about that said faction, so extensive knowledge of your faction will come in clutch. @everyone
All Chiefs are now allowed usages of Helicopters (littlebird), but like the US, the Helicopter must be spawned at the F.O.B helipad (Al-Shabaab still spawn theirs at Taliban base). Al-Shabaab will soon be receving the Littlebird (attack) as their fighter helicopter. ps. ty foril @everyone(edited)
I would just like to announce something that is already apparent, obviously recently. The server is undergoing a period of drout, drout in players. This often occurs to majority servers during this time of the year due to exams ect, all I can say is I appreciate the chiefs who are still with us and who are still maintaining faith. Obviously this period is an annoyance in factors of recruitment ect, but containing faith in these periods show your true colors. Cheers. @everyone(edited)

Speaking to quite a few ex Taliban, majority are choosing to leave due to inability to receive promotions. We are trying to pick up our numbers yet we our chiefs are dropping activity, I can't continue to allow youse to maintain your rank unless you're activity attempting to get on and do shit for your regiment. I might seem like a hard ass, but it's needed and I'm not going to condone inactivity. @everyone
Don't be surprised if you start seeing Chief's lose their ranks.
