I think we need to check in with staff on their profile as there hasn't been much staff activity in the thread
I sort of wanted to avoid listing names, but I've tried reaching out to our inactive Secretary p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p- and Moderator PndaGmr978. I haven't been able to get a response from either yet. Depending on how the situations play out, we might begin to seek replacements.
You might need to change the staff application rules a bit as well because we got few accts that are not more than 6 months old

also when are we voting on the banner contest banners

Hi, this is a post regarding the SCA. In cs4233117's list of updates, they said there would be a "Meeting amongst the SCA staff and USS president, where would be forums OR a studio.". I would like to know more about this, as I never saw this post in the SCA or USS forums.
With all respect, cs4233117 told us the same thing but I don't really know how the meeting would work (or what it would be about.) I'm interested in engaging in it, though.
Ok, thank you. I was just wondering as cs4233117 didn't give me a bunch of details about that. But, the SCA would be happy to do it.

I'm not really active on forums anymore…

April 2021 Checklist - April 4, 2021
Everyone please respond to this if you can!
All staff (including moderators) are expected to respond.


Suggestions/Questions
  • Should we drop our federation motto since it may not be a correct Latin translation? We may replace it with an English motto or a verified-accurate Latin translation if necessary. (The motto was dropped, starting with the new federation banner.)
  • Should we have an activity check from April 7-14 OR April 14-21? We will most likely have the following one around May 1-8 for reference. (The activity check has since been scheduled for April 14-21.)
  • Should we have the following rules for our banner contest vote? Anyone in the USS can vote, simple pick-one vote, short voting period, mostly focus on the two complete submissions. (This has been agreed upon.)
  • Should we adopt an official color standard (list of recommended colors for USS posts)? (This suggestion is unnecessary.)
  • Is anyone willing to take over the shop directory project if p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p- (“p”) is unable to work on it soon? (We might abandon this project.)
  • Do you agree that we should add the following question to the shop application? “Would you like to subscribe to our monthly newsletter?” (This has been agreed upon as well.)

Tasks
  • President Austinato is working on dealing with inactivity from Secretary p and Moderator PndaGmr978. These positions might become vacant and may prompt promotions/hiring.
  • Head Moderator MClovers is working on completing our April 2021 issue of the federation newsletter. Any last minute suggestions should be made soon.
  • Moderators, may you please process any pending applications since March 24, 2021? We may have missed a few. (Click here for the reference point.) (Completed; thanks misaPuding!)
  • Our Head Staff Department is working with the SCA on arranging its supposed first inter-federation meeting.
  • Our Head Staff Department (including moderators) might need to start working on a checklist of changes that 78ch3 needs to make on their posts.
  • President Austinato is also working on a comprehensive timeline post that contains news from the USS since January 2021. (Complete)

An incentive for responding to this post and engaging in its discussion: we can get all of these tasks taken care of swiftly!

USS MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

Featured Service
The USS offers many services to its shops that are easy to use, here's one!
ISOC (Inter-Shop Order Completion)
Are you a shop with way too many orders to handle? At the USS, this will never be a problem for you! If you're ever overloaded on orders, just post the ones you need to complete in the thread and you'll get brilliant, high-quality results!

Updates to the USS
The current thread for the fifth administration of the United Shops of Scratch, also known as 78ch3's thread, was created on January 15, 2021, and began regular use by the end of that month. Over the course of a few months, the federation's leadership has helped regain attraction and popularity of the federation, all while emphasizing things such as keeping our shops active, keeping our rules simple, and so on.

Below is a detailed recap of everything that has occurred in this thread (or related threads) since January 15, 2021:

Q1 2021
January
15 - This thread was created. Posts were reserved soon after.
29 - This thread began being actively used.
30 - PndaGmr978 became the first moderator to be accepted to the USS. They had previously served a position during GrahamSH's leadership.
February
3 - Ye BBCode Shop and The Block Shop became the first shops to be accepted to the USS. Ye BBCode Shop has since withdrawn its membership in the federation.
13 - FloatingMuffins became the first moderator to resign during this period of ownership. They left Scratch.
18 - misaPuding made their first post in this thread; although he was not officially part of the USS then, he would go on to become a moderator in April.
20 - A record of five shops were simultaneously accepted to the federation by Austinato. This is the current record for simultaneous shop acceptance.
20 - The first mega-post related to the February 2021 USS change package was posted.
21 - The update backlog for the member list began.
22 - The topic reached five pages.
24 - 84375 was accepted as Moderator. They became the second moderator.
March
4 - The February 2021 USS change package was presumably passed. The March 2021 federation banner contest also began. Conversations about its implementation followed.
4 - This topic reached ten pages.
5 - cs4233117 became the federation's third Moderator. Moderator applications were closed soon after. cs also serves as Secretary of the SCA, which would go on to partner with the SCA later the same month.
9 - The March 2021 checklist post was created.
11 - Secretary p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p- initiated the first version of the March 2021 activity check. It would later be restarted.
15 - Although the USS initiated relations with the SCA beforehand, an official declaration was approved and posted on the thread.
19 - President Austinato restarted the March 2021 activity check.
27 - Responses to the March 2021 activity check were due; five shops were flagged for removal (some closed, withdrew, or didn't respond.) A summary of the activity check's results were later posted on March 30.
31 - 84375 resigned as Moderator. They plan to leave Scratch.
Q2 2021
April
3 - misaPuding was accepted as Moderator. The position was previously left vacant after 84375's resignation the previous month, making misaPuding the fourth overall to hold the position.
4 - An April 2021 checklist/change package was posted.

So far, the new USS has started off pretty well. We've gained 15+ shop applicants, I’m seeing new posts daily and there is very little negative argument going on. It didn’t take long for the new USS to gain traction after it's reboot on my birthday to 2 months later. However, I ran into an issue where the first page of the USS was unaccessible, due to a “security issue” error appearing. I’m pretty sure this is a glitch in the system. Others could access it fine, I could not. I need to use my PC to edit the front page, which is inconvenient as it doesn't take as long to boot up my iPad as it does with my PC (even though the difference is rather small). I’m hoping this issue is not permanent, but for now it is difficult to get things updated. The USS team is doing a great job, and I hope they can continue doing this in the future.

Oops, I didn't mean for you to use the whole post. It's just a reference post which I'll add to the staff tools post and occasionally update. I'd recommend snipping it down to the most important parts, unless you feel like keeping it the same.

Your shop's application has been forwarded. I would like another application reviewer to consider this application.
Your shop seems kinda inactive, I didn´t see anyone ordering at your shop at least after 10th March. Try bumping a day after the last post so people will more notice your shop

If you own a shop, think about joining the USS, SCA or SSA!

Thank you for finding these applications, I saw @justdoscratchYT ´s application but I wasn´t able to find it later, going to look at it right now. Also, I don´t know whether we should accept Out of This World Shop because they haven´t got any orders yet, maybe we should wait with it until they complete at least 1 order so that we will have actually something to review?

If you own a shop, think about joining the USS, SCA or SSA!

  • (6)Do you agree that we should add the following question to the shop application? “Would you like to subscribe to our monthly newsletter?”

Tasks
  • President Austinato is working on dealing with inactivity from Secretary p and Moderator PndaGmr978. These positions might become vacant and may prompt promotions/hiring.
  • Head Moderator MClovers is working on completing our April 2021 issue of the federation newsletter. Any last minute suggestions should be made soon.
  • (7)Moderators, may you please process any pending applications since March 24, 2021? We may have missed a few. (Click here for the reference point.)
  • Our Head Staff Department is working with the SCA on arranging its supposed first inter-federation meeting.

  • President Austinato is also working on a comprehensive timeline post that contains news from the USS since January 2021. (Complete)

An incentive for responding to this post and engaging in its discussion: we can get all of these tasks taken care of swiftly!
1) I think yes
2) I think April 14-21 so we will have more time to solve personal problems if p would be inactive (If we wouldn´t have a secretary when time for activity check will occur, I can take it if you want), but then it would be better either if next activity check will be held between May 7th and 14th and the June activity check will be held between may 1st and 8th (because it would be kinda weird if the May activity check will be a week after the April activity check) or if we will skip the May activity check and the June activity check will start directly on 1st June (because even though we will skip one activity check it would mean that the gap between the April activity check and the next one will be 5 weeks long instead of 4 weeks as planned)
3)I agree. When will the voting start?
4) I think not.
5) No, I don´t even have a reserved post here. Also, can you explain what the shop directory was meant to be? I don´t remember.
6) Yes
7) Yup, I looked at them. I accepted The Coding Masters and forwarded (because they´re kinda inactive) The Coding Oven (thanks for the staff tools post!), but I don´t know whether we should accept Out of this world shop, because it hadn´t completed any orders yet.

Also, you marked @78ch3 as “pretty inactive” in one of your posts, but when I was looking for unprocessed applications I found one post in which he said that he will be inactive until April 15th. Also, shouldn´t we along with shop activity checks do staff activity checks?

  • Should we have an activity check from April 7-14 OR April 14-21? We will most likely have the following one around May 1-8 for reference.
  • Should we have the following rules for our banner contest vote? Anyone in the USS can vote, simple pick-one vote, short voting period, mostly focus on the two complete submissions.
  • Should we adopt an official color standard (list of recommended colors for USS posts)?
  • Is anyone willing to take over the shop directory project if p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p- (“p”) is unable to work on it soon?
  • Do you agree that we should add the following question to the shop application? “Would you like to subscribe to our monthly newsletter?”

  • 1) We could as we are not sure if it is a correct translation in Latin.
  • 2) Yes I think we should have/use these rules for the banner contest.
  • 3) We could/should but people may not know the bbcode for colors. (Like if we had a color for application to join the USS people may not know the color's, etc)
  • 4) I amy be able to do it, but preferably after I come back from camping, and I need more info about it.
  • 5) Maybe, but we could have new shop(s) get the 1st monthly newsletter and ask have that question somewhere is the newsletter.

I might be willing to allow an exception, but I'll probably wait until we sort out some staff inactivity issues first.

2) I think April 14-21 so we will have more time to solve personal problems if p would be inactive (If we wouldn´t have a secretary when time for activity check will occur, I can take it if you want), but then it would be better either if next activity check will be held between May 7th and 14th and the June activity check will be held between may 1st and 8th (because it would be kinda weird if the May activity check will be a week after the April activity check) or if we will skip the May activity check and the June activity check will start directly on 1st June (because even though we will skip one activity check it would mean that the gap between the April activity check and the next one will be 5 weeks long instead of 4 weeks as planned)
That's a good idea. I like this schedule: April 14-21, May 7-14, June 1-8.

3)I agree. When will the voting start?
Maybe today! I just wanted to put those rules out there to make sure things are clear for the vote.

4) I think not.
Yeah, I added the color standard suggestion as some sort of “for-fun” suggestion, but it's sort of unnecessary. Thanks for your feedback!

5) No, I don´t even have a reserved post here. Also, can you explain what the shop directory was meant to be? I don´t remember.
Back in February, MClovers and I were trying to think of ways to better advertise our shops, and we settled upon creating some sort of list of shops (a directory.) Although we have a member list, this directory would list shops that volunteered to be part of it in categories based on their specialty. It's sort of like a menu for customers of the Requests forum.

In the March activity check, we asked shops what categories they would like to be placed in for this directory, but we hardly got any responses. “p” has also sort of disappeared from this thread, leaving this project in jeopardy. It might be best to just leave this and return to it at a later date.

6) Yes
There doesn't seem to be any opposition to adding the newsletter question to the application form, so I'd consider this suggestion as approved! We'll just have to wait for 78ch3 to add it to the OP.

misaPuding wrote:

7) Yup, I looked at them.
Thank you!

misaPuding wrote:

Also, you marked @78ch3 as “pretty inactive” in one of your posts, but when I was looking for unprocessed applications I found one post in which he said that he will be inactive until April 15th. Also, shouldn´t we along with shop activity checks do staff activity checks?
Thanks for bringing that up!
As for staff activity checks, that makes sense! We should do that. I just brought it up now since staff inactivity has been growing a bit more apparent.

Maybe!

The checklist post has been updated to reflect the current status of these suggestions.
