Projects

Project Tiers

  • Tier 1 Projects are those large, long-term projects, which we intend to complete to the highest detail with the highest effort. Examples of these are Edhellond, Minas Tirith, and Thorin’s Halls. They are led by Designers, with oversight from the Creators.
  • Tier 2 Projects are smaller, and will typically consist of small towns, villages, or forts. Ideally they can be completed fairly fast and to a high standard. Tier 2 Projects can be led by Artists and above. They will all be chosen by the build team as a whole, via a poll posted in the discord #project-board.
  • Personal Projects are unofficial projects. Anyone can work on a personal project on EQ (they are personal, after all), but only Architects and above can claim project plots. If the Creators see enough potential in a personal project, they may upgrade it (as happened with the_pharaohs_cat’s Minas Tirith).

Starting a Project

  • Tier 1 Projects can be proposed by anyone, but they must be signed off by the server Leadership. The official leader must be a Designer. If a lower rank has proposed a project, he or she must find a Designer willing to run it.
  • Tier 2 Projects are begun by a poll led by a Staff member. They must come about this way, although the Staff member responsible must consult with the server Leadership before beginning a poll for a new project. The Staff member can either choose to lead the project themselves, or appoint an Artist or above to lead it.

Project Management System

All Project Leaders must follow the system outlined below to ensure clarity across projects. If they have assigned a Deputy he too can help carry out the leadership tasks.

  • Approval:
    • Light blue: For those working on the project. If they have completed a building as required of them, they should place this wool above the building
    • Lime green: If the Project Leader or their Deputy approves the building, they should replace the blue wool with this.
    • Orange: If the Project Leader or Deputy denies the building, this should be placed above, indicating further work is required.
  • Further requirements:
    • These should be placed either in conjunction with orange wool, or alone. Yellow indicates the building in question still requires an interior, whilst green indicates the building or area around it needs vegetation or other exterior decorations.
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Red wool indicates that the building below should be deleted.

Feedback or further comments should be placed on dark grey wool, so as to elaborate with further instructions. It should generally be used in conjunction with other wool.
