Are you a new team who really wants to learn more about VEX, but is afraid to ask? Or an established team who loves helping newer teams learn the ropes of VEX?
Then you will like the Rising Tide Alliance, and the Rising Tide VEX Discord!
Rising Tide Alliance:
The Rising Tide Alliance is designed for teams who love to help other teams learn more about VEX, who are committed to following both the letter and the spirit of the rules, and who want to make VEX fair for every team.
The Rising Tide Alliance will include an overall alliance that includes teams from all over the world, as well as local alliances for individual regions.
I have not finalized the application process, but feel free to DM me if you are interested in joining.
Rising Tide VEX Discord:
The Rising Tide VEX Discord is designed to be welcoming to teams of every experience level, whether they are part of the alliance or not.
It has sections geared towards new teams, and others geared towards established teams (although most of these will be visible to anyone who wants to view them). It also has subsections for individual regions, and ones specific to the alliance and each of its local chapters.
The Rising Tide VEX Discord also has a zero-tolerance for bullying (if someone thinks it’s bullying, you need to stop doing it unless the mods agree that it’s not), and encourages all teams to bring up concerns with teams or volunteers in private rather than making public accusations (feel free to DM me or another server administrator if you have a concern).
Here is an invite link for the Rising Tide VEX Discord: https://discord.gg/ZxqpTTT
Feel free to invite anyone you want to. Everyone is welcome in the server, as long as they obey the rules.
If you have any questions about the alliance or the Discord, please let me know!
The Rising Tide Alliance also plans to have other forms of communication available besides Discord, including DM threads on the forum.
Also, the Rising Tide VEX Discord is looking for mods! If you would like to be a moderator, please let me know. We will probably have moderators for the whole server (likely multiple levels), and for certain sections.
