About
The Emerald Shop is a multi-purpose shop which provides 11 services. We can do anything from art to scripting to voice acting. We have had three presidents and are therefore on our third forum thread. We have 182 pages total on our two previous threads and almost 200 on this one. We are always receiving and completing quality orders of many kinds. We have many members and have been awarded the Scratch Shop World Records award for Most Employees in a Shop. As of now, according to @congyingzhou (owner of TIPS and The Shop Directory 12.0), we are the fourth biggest shop on Scratch.

We do not join federations very often, but any request to join is appreciated!

Currencies
We do not use any currencies and will decline any offers to join/use a currency.

History
This shop was founded on the 20th of May 2016 by @JakeCarroll.
We joined the shop federation, which later closed. We soon grew to 19 members and remained active until April 2017, when we became very inactive. However, in February 2018 we became active again before 13 of our members became inactive and we dwindled to 6 members. We joined the USS and started getting a good few orders, most of which we completed. Within a few months, we grew to 12 members, and @JakeCarroll's new account @FloatingMuffins took over the shop.
In June 2018, we introduced elections for our USS reps and simplified our shop structure. We soon joined the SPA and entered a partnership with Toadcode’s Music Shop and T.I.P.S. In October of 2018, we were awarded a certificate for “Most Employees in a Shop”.
Due to FloatingMuffins' inactivity starting in late October, the Vice Presidents (@npjensen and @pinkiepie710) moved the shop to a new thread created by @npjensen on December 12th of 2018. In January of 2019, @npjensen grew inactive, and @pinkiepie710 was given the presidency of the shop. She then moved it to yet another thread on February 13th of 2019 with 29 members.
The shop remained mostly the same until around May 2019, when much of our staff became inactive and unclaimed orders began piling up. Some members came and went, but the shop usually had around 30 members, though many were inactive. Many long-time, dedicated members of the shop, including those on the Board of Directors, remained. Soon, a new batch of members did begin working at the shop.
At the end of June 2019, many members of the shop began to resign again. Many active members also had to put on leave due to summer vacation, and it became harder to complete orders on time. The shop declined to about 20 members. Despite this rocky period, the shop continued to run smoothly and remained as one of the biggest Scratch Shops, though we were passed by T.I.P.S. and got bumped down to the fourth largest shop on Scratch.
We didn't give up, though. After dwindling to less than 20 members in September 2019, we rose back up to 25 in October. The creator of the shop, @FloatingMuffins, even rejoined the shop. At the beginning of December 2019, the shop became very active. We gained many new members, and some old members rejoined the shop. We began getting more orders and completed most of these.
Starting at the end of December 2019 and going until the end of January 2020, the shop went through some big changes. In December, we abolished departments completely, instead letting all members and trainees take orders from all departments. We also merged the Marketing officer and Partnerships Officer into the Public Relations Officer and stopped offering ASCII text art as a service. We also changed the trainee system a bit, so that everyone joins as a trainee and must respond to three activity checks before becoming a full member. We also changed the number of votes per member depending on their position in the shop.

The Terms
Requirements
  • As a member or trainee, you must follow the group studio (Found here)
  • If you are on the Board, you must follow the Board studio (Found here)
  • You must be active. Activity checks are held periodically, and you must reply to them (see below for detail)
  • If you are fired from the shop, you will be notified on your profile and you may reapply.
  • The codeword is 2020. You must include this word or a variation of it in your staff application or else you will be rejected.
  • You must be respectful to anyone who comes through the shop unless they are spamming, not obeying the rules of the shop or Scratch, or not being respectful towards you or the shop.
  • Failure to comply with any of these terms may result in a strike against you or being fired from the shop.
Staff notes
  • Anyone who joins the shop will join as a trainee.
  • Trainees must be active for three activity checks in a row in order to be promoted to a full member.
  • Trainees may join the BoD in any position besides President or VP as long as they have responded to two activity checks.
  • In the event of a vote, trainees will get no votes, members will get one vote, and members of the BoD will get two votes.
  • If a trainee is on the BoD, they will get two votes.
  • KittenDude172 will always remain in the trainee position, no matter what happens to him.

Proposing a new rule/suggestion to the shop
1. The proposal must have the support of two members on the Board of Directors
2. It is debated by the shop. A discussion will take place in the shop studio.
3. If it gets enough support, the suggestion will be implemented. If the shop reaches an agreement during the discussion, the suggestion will not be voted on. If not, the suggestion will be voted on and will be implemented if a majority of the voters agree upon it.

Activity Checks
There will be activity checks on the first of every month. If pinkiepie710 doesn't call the check on time, then one of the VPs will. Pie will keep track of who has responded, but a VP is capable of making the official announcement. You will have one week to respond to these activity checks. You will not be notified in the event of an activity check, as the purpose of activity checks is to find out who checks the shop regularly on their own. If you do not respond, you get one strike. It takes one strike for a trainee to be fired and three strikes for a full member to be fired. If you are on the Board of Directors, you need two strikes to get removed from the BoD.

Customer Notifications
Customers must be notified:
  • When their order has been taken
  • If the staff member doing their order has any questions/problems
  • If their order may be late
  • When their order is done
Note: If a customer says that they aren't following the thread, they must be notified on their profile. If their profile comments are turned off, comment on one of their projects. If they don't have any projects, that's on them.

Excused
To be excused from The Emerald Shop temporarily, leave a post asking to be excused. You must include a timeframe for when you'll need to be excused, including a starting and ending date. The maximum amount of time you can be excused for is one month. While excused, you cannot receive activity strikes or be fired from the shop. Once your time being excused is over, you will not be notified, and you will now be able to receive strikes or get fired from the shop.
Note: You don’t need to excused unless it’s 3-4 days or more.
