        1. They have 4 roles.
        2. First, they are ambassadors for 21CW to new members. They patrol the Intro and New Member p2p forums, contacting new folks via PM. They assist with navigating the forums, getting folks inducted into Divisions, etc.
        3. They are ambassadors from the community TO the admin staff. Exist as an out of CoC method for info to get to the admins. If your CoC isn't getting your concern addressed, contact an ambassador. Doesn't matter which side they are on.
        4. They are ambassadors from the admins to YOU. They attend IC meetings, have access to the admins. They usually know the whys behind decisions as much as HCOs. Feel free to approach them if you have a concern about an admin ruling, decision, or anything of that nature.
        5. Finally, the are arbiters in the Grievance system. More info on this below.
        6. If interested, they are looking for new members. Primarily from the SCO, but looking for NATO too. Use the application in the forum sidebar.


    • Grievance system
      1. Is a method to get personal conflicts or incidents w/o clear evidence resolved. Also a potential path for appealing admin rulings & decisions.
      2. Full details and examples will be published this week.
      3. There will be a forum to post potential grievances, only you, the admins, and the ambassador lead will see your threads/posts in this forum. They will do a cursory review to sort out spurious/fake submissions.
      4. 2 Ambassadors will be assigned to the investigate and rule on the grievance. Their will be an ambassador or admin assigned to act as a mediator/tie breaker if the ambassadors cannot reach an agreement.
      5. Ambassadors who are HCOs will not be assigned to grievances involving their opponents.
      6. Ambassadors will have a range of punishments to mete out. Max being a 1 day battle ban and/or a Tournament strike.
      7. If an admin decision is appealed, the ambassador's decision will be final. Their will be no further appeal.
      8. Admins will have zero involvement in the appeals of administration decisions other than to provide the evidence & reasons behind their ruling. The rest of the process will be completely conducted by the ambassadors.
