So you want to start a division.

    How do I create my own division?

    First and foremost, we thank you for taking the initiative to form a division. Toy Soldiers from around the globe have been forming such units as to build local groups to carry out missions, stage invasions and have a generally good time!

    First, you should check the groups page and make sure that one does not already exist within a 100 mile radius of where you want your division to be. Check carefully because some divisions are listed more by regions than by cities. If there is not already a division covering your area, then you can send your request via the contact page with the following information:

    A) A Leader. This person must live in the city the division is created for. You must also be a member in good standing with us, having an active profile and posts.
    B) 3 other members in the area for your division.
    C) All parties must be registered members of Toy Soldiers Unite for at least one month prior to division creation.
    D) Your exact location.
    E) The title of your Division.
    F) Your desired Division number (Please check the other division on our division page to make sure your number is unique)

    Submit the above information via the Contact Us page. Please do NOT send it as a PM in the forum or chat.

    If all criteria is met, an admin will create your division. The division leader must then fill in all geographic data so that the division will appear on the groups page. Once that is done, write the admins and they will create a discussion thread in the Divisions section of the forums.

    To keep people from spreading themselves to thin, Toy Soldiers are limited to being responsible of 2 divisions at maximum, be they local, special interest, or special ops.

    How do I create a Special Operations division?

    Should you wish to create a Special Operations division based on a specific, collective talent we encourage you to do so. Special Operations Divisions are based on a specific ability (i.e.; cooking, wrestling, clowning) and are focused on utilizing this unique ability toward the actualization of a Utopian Playland!

    If there is not already a special operations division that covers your idea (please check thoroughly), then you can send your request via the contact page with the following information:

    A) A Leader. You must be a member in good standing with us, having an active profile and posts.
    B) Links to 3 other members’ profiles to start it with. They must also be proven active.
    C) All parties must be registered members of Toy Soldiers Unite for at least one month prior to division creation.
    D) The title of your Special Operations Division.
    E) A logo or a rough sketch of one that will become your Special Op’s logo if approved.
    F) An outline of how your division will further the quest for the Utopian Playland with its chosen focus/skill.

    Submit the above information via the Contact Us page. Please do NOT send it as a PM in the forum or chat.

    Please note that the creation of Special Ops is a more subjective process than the creation of divisions. Admins carefully consider usefulness, redundancy, appropriateness, and other factors when a Special Operations division is proposed. Ultimately, it is to their discretion as to whether or not the division is created. Special Ops are for people who have skills they will apply in helping promote our community or each other. On occasion, some Special Ops may be considered more appropriate as a Special Interest Division. They focus on a collective concept or theme, such as cosplay enthusiasts.

    To avoid redundancy, inactivity, or divisions being formed solely for the sake of them, ANYONE wanting create a Spec Ops, first organize a mission or project focusing on the Spec Op’s Specialty, you may start a thread to drum up interest after you have written the admins with your idea, please do this first to insure your idea is not already included in an existing division.

    How do I create a Special Interest Division?

    A) A Leader. This person must have knowledge of the subject being focused on and the ambition to keep it going. You must also be a member in good standing with us, having an active profile and posts.
    B) Links to 3 other members’ profiles to start it with, they must also be proven active. All parties must be registered members of Toy Soldiers Unite for at least one month prior to division creation.
    C) No specific location is required as Special interest will be considered world wide.
    D) The title of your Division.
    E) Your desired Division number (Please check the other division on our division page to make sure your number is unique)

    Submit the above information via the Contact Us page. Please do NOT send it as a PM in the forum or chat.

    You may start a thread to engage interest in the subject after you have written the admins with your idea. This will save you/us time if it has been already done.

  • To create a special interest division, would one go through the same process as a special ops division?

    Pretty much.

  • Awesome, thanks ^_^

  • To clarify: do you need 3 people in total or 3 people other than the leader?

    4 people total. 1 designated div leader who’s responsible for organising stuff, and 3 other registered and active toy soldiers (minimum put up a profile pic really).
