I soon have to cut back on my role here at RD due to being rather busy, so we're currently looking for some staff to help out with running some of the daily club events on Stock Car Extreme. If there are some days you can help out, please send a PM to me (Nox).

Duties would include testing, creating and maintaining event threads, setting up race servers and being an admin in your races (You don't need to be present for all of them, but it helps).

Ideally we are looking for people who are regulars, consistent, and have the long term success of the club in mind.

Thanks all!

Sorry to hear this Andrew. Your work here has been superb and consistent and I hope you are not giving up running the SCE side of things for good.
All the best.

@Nox, I am grateful for life, thanks to the opportunity you gave me to belong to this community. I'm very busy lately and I can only just run from 21:00. but these are things that happen, I'm sure things will return to normal. I hope to see you in a race. If you come to Spain, do not forget to tell me

Thanks all, I appreciate all the kind words. I've made some good friends here, and I'm not going anywhere. I just need to cut back on the work load (I still plan to help out with stuff like future leagues, but I can no longer keep up with the daily stuff). The main point is to find some great people to keep the club running :thumbsup: I don't want the thread to turn into a thread about me ;)

I can help whoever takes over RD's second finest club with testing, maintaining event threads, running lobbies and other small stuff if needed. Can't commit to run the club since i'm busy with HistorX.
Thanks for your time as "Puppetmaster" Andrew, you did a top job! :)

For some time now I've been coming back to this section of RD to find me a good race but whenever I find a race I'm interested in I only see a few signups.
I don't really enjoy small a grid so I usually wait till the very last day to see if more ppl signed but usually no.

Not too long I ago I remember almost every race had 20+ drivers, less then 15 was very uncommon, reserve spots were often filled.

Now to the question, where did everyone go? Another sim? Another site?
GSCE is my favourite sim and RD is the only place I know of where to find races, but without drivers there isn't much of a race, is there?

There are probably a bunch of variables, but I think one would be that we went to 7 day club and this split up a club with just enough numbers to make things interesting. It may pay off in the future but presently I think it put a dent in the numbers. Just a guess.

Not signing up for a club event until the day of, or the day before, is one of the biggest reasons as to why sign ups are so low. RD staff has already advise RD members more than once, "not to sign up last minute!!! Signing up early will encourage others to signup up." Signing up as early as you can shouldn't be an option.... you should just do it!

The V8 league is over, so like I mentioned over at the FClassic club event scheduled for this Tuesday night, drivers will need to maintain their driving skills, so look for the club sign up numbers to rise!

Clearly, RD needs more staff to help out with organizing these events daily... I want to help out, but I need to think about it as commitment is key in order to become a RD staff member. More staff means more time to consider really really really good track/car combos. Track/car combos are really important when it comes to drawing large grids for the clubs. We need to run more modded content, but that would require a lot of testing. If we all pitch in, we could have people working different departments to do testing, responding to questions/inquiries/assistance, posting club events, etc...... this is too much work for one person to keep up. Man I wish I had a simple 9-5 Mon - Fri:roflmao:

Thank you @Nox for all you have done. And thank you @Dennis Phelan for everything you are doing/have done.

Spot on @SOLO59 it's the same nasty simsheep that ruins public servers. See here.

And dedicated volunteers are more than welcome to join our staff team. And don't worry, you don't need to run 7 events per week. The more people that form a solid staff group the easier it goes.

Would love to help but I can't be at 10 places at the same time ;)

I would be more than happy to volunteer my time as a tester for future events.
@Bram Hengeveld You can put me down for that. Depending how things go, I may offer to do more.

How I see it (for now) is that we seem to have the following
Tuesday: Open wheel night
Thursday: Touring Cars
Sunday: Slidey Sunday (Vee, Opala, etc)

I think we could go with one more night for now (Saturday would be my suggestion) which could be anything (Stock, M18, Mini, Karts, mods) and the event itself should also be mixed (2x20, 45/60, etc). The Stock race at Ipswich to reflect the V8 Supercar format was a great idea and we should have more events that reflect real life events.

Rather than having one staff member do everything, perhaps we need 3/4 people each doing a little bit here and there

One thing, is possible to change the start hour? now a days is very early, obviously the people have to work later.
With the current timetable , in my case, is not possible to participate in any race.
I think that is the same problem to many people.

If the race can start , more or less, at 19:30 gmt, it will be good (for me)

Thanks.

18:00 starts were the best, after a year of trialling. Changing it for later wouldn't help. Additionally, the second races start at around 19:00 so then it means people from both sides of Europe can run. 19:30 is already 10.30pm my time, South Africa time, eastern Europe, and later for the middle East.
