~February 2016 News~
Consolidation of Event Attendance
You may or may not have noticed, but I have removed some types of Event Attendance awards to cleanup the system. This was tedious work involving manually re-issuing Event Attendance tokens to everyone, and included things like the DI Xmas Event Attended, some Training Events attended for which DI no longer has ventures (Neverwinter was one, World of Tanks another). They have all been rolled into Social Events attended. Changes can be seen here: http://www.dmg-inc.com/di/jawards/
I also merged the DI Anniversary events, and recruitment events like Op Virus into New Blood. They are all generic now, and re-usable for future occasions. And its a lot neater and cleaner having less. Which leads to my next point:
Only games where DI has a division will have the official Event Attendance token. For other games that are ventures etc, Venture Leaders are to use DI Social Event to give to their members for attending formal training sessions, until such time the Venture becomes a division.
Its important that Officers regularly host events for their Divisions and Teams, because members need Event Attendance tokens to advance in rank and experience within Damage Incorporated.
~Member of the Month~
Congratulations to TjKeegan for winning MOTM for March 2016. His quality input and consistent activity across the clan has been noted by the officers, and for his efforts he has been awarded the MOTM Ribbon and the MOTM Rank for the duration of the month.
Congratulations to the Cohort of February 2016 for joining our ranks as full members. You have no doubt gone through a somewhat difficult process in the Ludus Magnum, where many of your peers fell to the relentless assaults from the activity managers, your Commanders and Team leaders who expect the highest performance from you and lastly, the barrier tests from the Initiate Manager. Due to the demand, some of you have been offered officer positions to take up more responsibility within the clan. Ensure you use this to the glory of DI and always for the best of the clan as a whole.

This is the prime rank that a member can achieve during their first 3 months of membership. Its a distinguished rank that can only be earned through hard work, and a constant effort to improve DI. It is achieved after gaining 3 honor points, which is earned through various awards in which themselves take hard work and effort to earn.
I take great pleasure today awarding the Companion’s Shield to:
+Direwolf16, for outstanding service to DI, well above what is expected from any regular member.
