Public Relations team update

 

  1.1 - Summary

 
We hope to address multiple topics and concerns in the upcoming sections of the thread. Some topics will be addressed in future updates. Below you will find a brief summary of the content:
 
  • The new PR team addition and introduction to the thread 
  • The transparency and lack of communication between the community and the PR team 
  • The current work within the Public Relations team 
  • The new implementation of our content creator suggestion system
  • The current content creators working in DayZRP and possible future introductions
  • The upcoming 0.61 patch release and its usage in benefiting the community
  • The events in planning to help bring more attention to the community
 
1.2 - Introduction
 
It has become evident to us, the PR team, that the communication between the community and the PR team has been severely lacking. In order to address this, and many other issues, I have recently been appointed the new PR Manager position. Like myself, I am sure many of you had previous concerns about public relations within the community, or in fact still do. I was perfectly aware that the public relations role was not being used to its full potential, and the community was not witnessing any noticeable difference for a long period of time. With due respect, not all work that is carried out by the PR team is made public or otherwise noticed by the community, however, there were no clear improvements or benefits enhancing the community's experience. So, in hope to resolve this problem, Jim decided to offer me the position. After a great deal of thought, I accepted the role knowing that there was a need for improvement.
 
My main role within the team is to work with content creators that Jim brings into the community. I have had experience with this in the past, voluntarily assisting with previous content creators such as PSIsyndicate, DevilDogGamer, Mr Chow, VectorBunny and Silo Entertainment. However, within my short time in this role, I have become involved in most aspects of the PR work carried out within the team. I have been closely working alongside Jim with content creators and preparing for our future plans, primarily the much awaited 0.61 update and how we will use this new spike in players to benefit the community.
 
 
1.3 - Transparency between PR and Community
 
As previously stated in the introduction, there has been a lack of communication between the PR team and the community resulting in a lot of concerns on both sides. To address this, we have chosen to open this thread and hopefully ease concerns the community may have. We will utilise this thread in providing updates about current plans or events going forward.
 
2.1 - Current plans
 
  • Our aim is to attract and reach out to more content creators. To help do this successfully we are going to be implementing a suggestion system, more information on this can be found below.
 
  • Planning events alongside the loremaster team and publicising them on our social media and also getting them featured by YouTubers & Streamers. Staggs and I have recently discussed the idea behind planning an event which YouTubers & streamers are going to be able to promote alongside our social media, to attract new people to the server but also still get the current community members involved in the event.
 
  • Planning events for the community so people can get to know each other. The idea behind this plan is that game tournaments with prizes are going to be planned for current community members to join. They're planned purely for fun so community members are able to socialise with other community members in order to develop a tighter bond between them. Also, karaoke nights every Sunday has been a suggested idea! If there are more ideas you'd like to suggest, either post them below or PM them to me.
 
  • Due to recent suggestions and concerns regarding the content creators being brought in, we have posted a content creators suggestion thread. This allows the community to recommend content creators that they believe will produce good content that will benefit the community. Link for the thread can be found below.
 
2.2 - Content Creators
 
In the past few months, Jim and I have been working closely together alongside Silo, Wolfie, PsiSyndicate & are hoping to bring in more content creators such as Mr Moon (even though he has dedicated himself to Arma 3). Silo has published a couple of videos on his channel and we're closely working with him for another video to be published during the Christmas period (hopefully around 0.61). PsiSyndicate will soon also be returning to the server in order to produce videos, with our cooperation.
 
Now, we've realised that the choices the PR team makes when it comes to content creators do not appease everyone in the community so we've come to a decision. We want the community to suggest content creators they'd like to see play on our server, which they can do on the following thread:
 
 
We would also like group leaders to know that if they'd like to have YouTubers/Streamers join their group in order to record some quality content they're more than free to send Jim or me a private message.
 
This thread is designed to be updated and maintained. All future changes and developments will be added to this thread, any questions or concerns can be posted below and either Jim, Keira or myself will address them as soon as possible.

I would like to add a suggestion that every streamer who comes on here under partnership with DayZRP participate in the Mentor Program and as accordance to the style of roleplay they want to adopt, get a mentor to follow them. This allows those who are hesitant to join such a server because of it's serious nature to be accompanied with a veteran roleplayer.

I loved the Idea of doing these threads. I hope there will be more, so we can catch up to this side of the DayZRP's Staff, and eventually, get to understand and help them, making their job a lot easier. Thanks for the effort!

I loved this idea, Melvin. It would be a good precaution so no rules would be broken, and also, a good way to teach encourage new players that might be joining the server to use the mentor program.

I don't mean to insult any content creators personally, but I just wish the people we do encourage to come to the server have the actual interest in playing here rather than produce content for a profit. When I hear, "PsiSyndicate will soon also be returning to the server in order to produce videos, with our cooperation." I fear honestly what will happen this time around considering he should have been permabanned. I have nothing against Lewis, very nice person, very humble when I spoke to him in Teamspeak, but even he agreed that he didn't put forward a lot of effort into a character and his roleplay. While that normally isn't a problem, when PsiSyndicate's video reach thousands, those thousand came in, and replicated his playstyle of quick-robberies and non-serious roleplay. The ".60 wave" was not that enjoyable for serious roleplay.

I still believe instead of trying to convince larger people to play here who have no interest in it, we should look to appeal to those who've never heard about the server or try to fix our public image. Post about DayZRP on Reddit and you're going to get slammed.
