This just further validates the fundamental issue here that these DGS tickets are being used for recruiting purposes.Sham wrote:I was bewildered as anyone else here, but my understanding is this: A camp may need 30 people to assemble the structure and the infrastructure. The names of those workers may not be known when tickets are purchased. People who are willing to join and build the camp have an opportunity to purchase tickets that are in the hands of the camp organizers.
I think I have this right. It's starting to make sense.
If this is the case, and allowing DGS tickets to be used for recruiting purposes is the formal policy of BMORG, let BMORG be explicit about it.
This would seem to contradict the "policy" stated here:
Then of course there is that exception clause. Just ring up Placement, frame the story such that your "critical" members are still to be recruited and that these tickets maintain your "culture" (nevermind those "stone throwing" naysayers), and they'll extend you carte blanche. Just a formality, really.trilobyte wrote:
- Remember, invitations to this sale are not transferable outside the group and may not be bought, sold, traded or offered as enticements to people outside the group it was issued to, and any exceptions should be approved by the group that issued them (placement, DMV, etc). Groups found to be abusing the system do run the risk of losing their 'good standing' status (affecting their eligibility to participate in future sales) or even having some/all of the group's tickets canceled.
I consider this bar pretty low. Placement ought to trust camps implicitly when they gave out DGS tickets. It's hard to imagine a scenario where the camps could not argue that they will find someone meeting qualifications, if not in the camp then outside it, to fulfill that fluid "critical" role. And hey, who would not want to completely take advantage of every one of those uncontested, reserved tickets, right?
Now what I'm wondering is: why even require all this in the first place? Just extend full faith and credit to the camps and drop the formalities.
