Attend. @Lavandula The lesson has now begun. You may take your time in your replies, and it is highly recommended you do so. While I will watch this, I expect a formal @Arie once completed so that I can post the next part of the lesson. Feel free to go back and edit your post as you find your answers, which is also strongly recommended.

 

Part One: The White Tower

 

1) What are members of the WT/Warders expected to do?
2) What is the Code of Conduct, and how does it apply to you?
3) What in the heck does PG13 mean?
4) What is Thread-Hijacking and Spam, and what is the general policy of the WT/Warders regarding that?

1) To read the rules and regulations, for new and returned members, until you understand them, then agree and abide by them.

Furthermore WT/warders members are to serve. What that entails for each sub club is part of our journey to figure out as aspirants.

2) the code of conduct describes how to behave in DM in general, and against eachother as persons, conflict resolution, and also how any breach of conduct will be dealt with.

3) PG13 means that DM is under the American parental guidance 13, which means it may contain content that is not appropriate (nudity and violence primarily)for kids under the age of 13.

However it means it's not R rated, so no profound cursing, nudity, and violence, unsuitable for 13 years olds.

4) thread hijacking means you consistently post about something else than the theme of the tread. Spamming is when you post irrelevant messages, typically in a large number. Each sub group may have their own policies on spamming/thread hijacking, but the general rule is; if a member of a group tell you to stop, you stop.

 

Well as the question stands, it leaves things kind of open to interpretations..I will keep my answers as I feel it is right, but modify the serving part of my answer since it might not have been clear enough, and also I agree the "part of the journey" part got totally lost in translation lol. looks about right?

As Members of The White Tower, we are to serve. Part of the adventure is learning where we will serve, and it what capacity.

When you are ready, feel free to move forward to the next assignment.

 

Part Two: The Subgroups

So what we normally recommend is that you start a post in your class thread and go back and edit it over time, and that the format is as follows:

[Ajah/Guild]
--[Who is in charge]
--[general focus if there is one]
--[relevant post #1]
--[relevant post #2]
 

Rinse and repeat for at least five of the seven each Ajahs and Warders Guild.

Yellow ajah

leader: Nynaeve 

Focus: the yellows I think is a bit skittish, you'll either have to earn their trust, or bind them down with a mentor leach..😝 so I feel it is a little bit hard to know for sure, but I think the yellows are healers of mind so to speak, by focusing on those little specks of fun life gives, and they ofcourse like plants.

*hugs* You are doing very well! While 'theoretical' or 'practical' aspect is strange, it's important to know how the Club/White Tower functions so that you know what rules to follow and which ones to break. 😄

 

Part Three: Keeping Up

1) Do you have any questions?
2) Do you have any suggestions on how to tweak this class in the future?

Lava would never...never break a rule!😯 merely..bend, poke, and stretch to the brink of breaking point..😇 *squeezes senpai*

Lavas  to short journey part III

Questions: 

I could still change between the two main groups if I realized I chose wrong, right?

 

 

Suggestions:

- I think it would be better if we were all in one class. You could throw in a task every week, and we will all discuss it over that week (or more if need be) It's more sosial, fun and I bet we wold learn way more than just our searching skills, looking up lengthy old text at dm..yawn..

-class trip around the tower and warders yard, or some kind of task where we discuss difference between ajahs and warders (is there more to it than just mainly the gender thing..?)

- also I want a class trip, but its no fun cause HELLO, I'M ALONE!!!

Just to be sure.. yes this might be a little different and, yes that's why I chose this place, but it's still supose to be a sosial group, no?!?

It used to be like that when there were a lot of aspies, but then they dwindled and we changed it to individual classes because people had to wait weeks or months for others to join so there could be a group class.

If traffic picks up, we'll definitely think about going back to that.

Good Question! No, and yes. Once you have made a choice you have the ability to court and stalk all the groups to your hearts content. If you truly can not find a place that speaks to your heart you may petition the staff to change your path. It is not something taken lightly so it is a process. Thus, I caution, choose wisely.

 

I will give you one last personal piece of unofficial homework - given that you have been delightfully active in so many places. Reach out to one member of any group and ask them on a personal level what they love about the path they chose, and why they chose Aes Sedai or Warders. I would be useless in this as that distinction really didn't come until years after I was part of the Greens. (or something). 

 

I will report that you have completed this class in flying colors! *hugs*

Thank you Arie, and thank you for the extra task too! I really started feeling stressed about choosing, decision making skills sorely lacking..now (thanks to you, cairos, lii and tay) I feel really good and secure about my choice. 

Extra task

I wont copy what people said since it's partly pm, I will just sum it up in my own words.

1. Do not only think about who you are but who you wanna strive to be and grow into.

2. Fokus more on people than club descriptions, (cause normally more than one will suit you maybe all even,) Who makes you feel comfortable both with them and yourself

3. And maybe ask yourself if you find hardship in life, how do you want to deal with it, humor, look for the positive bits, fight it, were all different and it's  no right or wrong, just what's right for you.

Just to add to thread hijaking... basically it's taking over a thread... diverting from the original topic.

Also there are female warders here. Just saying... the differences are really the focuses and when you role play... this class isn't just to read and post a quickie, but rather to start learning and deciding where you fit in group wise.

I can change it if you really feel it's necessary, but I really fail to see the difference; theme means "subject of a talk" or "topic", no?

also I felt like "taking over a tread" didn't explain the wrongdoing well enough. I wanted to show that I understood what it entails, not just copy and paste from the rules..🙂

Meeeh...do I really have to change the yellow ajah? 😁 fine...

 Not atm it isn't, roflol! (Sorry bout that) 

Yes, you would be kinda hard pressed to miss lii..

Look you have to realize that I've been around for couple of months now, and very active at that. When I got here, there were very few group descriptions out there, and honestly I don't feel many of them really tell you much of importance anyway. I've learned much more by socialising, both here and at discord, but I can't very well link to that.. 

I realize you want me to go out there and search for the answers, I just kinda did it backwards, research first and questions to test my knowledge afterwards.😜

And fyi I did not just up and deside my path today, I already had a pretty good notion of it I just wanted to be really, really sure that I'd given the other path a fair chance, and seen it from all angles.

1. Wasn't saying you had to change thread hijacking but rather making sure you understood is all.

 

2. I wasn't looking for a copy paste but not a joke either... if you're not sure interacting is absolutely ok to gain a feel... besides a focus can change as it's active members do. This class is meant to be taken seriously at least in the sense of answering the questions... joking between or what have you is allowed... and I don't mind it really as long as the serious answers are there. As I said before it's set up as a learning thing. It's great that toy had a chance to already be around, and I'm sorry we didn't have things set up before. 

 

3. About choosing your path... that's excellent! I just wanted to make sure toy didn't feel rushed and were informed is all... not everyone is decided by the end of their class. 

 

Ok let me check the links and then I can post the graduation thread.
