Good morning folks (as of the time of writing this),

The Earth's Elite Senior Staff are due to convene for a meeting within the next week, Friday 18th @ 3PM Community Time (BST), this is probably going to be one of the most important senior meetings we've ever held.  We're not only discussing the usual day to day operational subjects, but instead, we'll be facing the harsh facts of Earth's Elite.

We are well aware that since day one, EE hasn't every really succeeded.  Sure, some events have had good turn outs, etc etc, but overall our overage event attendance is 1 or 2, yes, I fully respect that EE isn't judged solely on it's events, there's a whole lot more going on, but even if we still look at the community utilisation of the services offered, it's either by guests or 1 or 2 members, for all intents and purposes, EE is dead.

Something I have said from day one, I will never close the community and I will never merge Earth's Elite into another community, this still holds true today.

The difference between this time last year and this year is massive.  For example, Friday 11th May to Sunday 13th May 2018 should have been Venture Radio's Big Weekend.  Third Annual, but, it isn't.  After having been planned for months, time off work booked (at least by myself), we were never able to get it off the ground.  (Just in case you're wondering, Venture Radio is run by EE and SSRF jointly, making VR an organisation under the EE banner).  This truly upsets me (and not just because I have wasted a valuable day of annual leave from work for it), this is something I truly enjoy doing, but, we couldn't.

On Friday 18th the Seniors and I will discuss where we go from here, how do we turn this around.  We are celebrating our 5 year anniversary this year, 5 years ago when I began working on the Earth's Elite project (yup, EE was already in the pipelines in May 2013), where I visioned the community would be 5 years from her launch, definitely was not here, we're actually in a worse place than where we started (silver lining - we achieved something at least).

I don't want this to be a wall of text and I've already done the whole "We need your help" thing and that hasn't worked, so, to be brief.  If you have any ideas, please post them below, if you have the drive to help rebuild a battered and broken community, contact me directly here - - You don't need to dedicate money etc to help us out, but we do need people with enough time and dedication to EE.

After the meeting next week the seniors will have an action plan and this action plan will have an "if all else fails" clause.  This is forewarning, if we have not been able to turn the community around (or there are no signs of this happening) Earth's Elite will, in January 2019, reduce staffing to Senior Staff, and begin what we are calling a wind down.  We will run in limited operations for a year (allowing various services EE hosts to expire) and we will reduce ourselves to what can run on the main EE server and nothing else, making December 31st 2019 the official last operating day of EE.  This is our worst case scenario and I do not want to have to enact the wind down clause.

So if you can help, please, I implore you to step forward now, be it a simple idea, to joining the EE staff (note, all staff position may be changing, you're submitting interest not candidacy at this time).

If you got this far, thank you.  Below is the full agenda the Senior Staff will be discussing next week (certain parts have been redacted).

As it is April, we are looking to raise enough money to keep Earth's Elite running for another year.

We normally do this by asking for half of 122 in November and then the remainder in April, to try and split it up.  Last year in November we weren't able to raise any money towards our running costs for this year.

Our 100% goal is 122.  As this is such a large number I am pledging 25% of this, 35.50, outright.  I also pledge to match users first time donations (for this donation period) up to 10 until the 100% goal is met or the 24 hour event is over, which ever comes first.

By donating to EE you receive VIP status and if you donate during the 24 hour event, you can give a member of staff an order (see the 24 hour event thread for details on this).

Those who donate will be entered into a raffle to win a prize.  Currently there is only one prize which is 10 worth of games, if you have something that you would like to donate to the prize pool, please post below or PM me directly.

Thank you in advance to anyone who donates or is considering donating.
