Canada's biggest military unit, with great friends and people, has her arms open to all. This has been my one and only MU home during my young eRep life, and it has been a great time here. I have made many friends, and seen the hard work of many. This article in no means is a shot at anybody, just simply an idea of what I would like to see come out of the CAF, and would appreciate honest feedback so WE can make it the best it can be!
The first and most pressing issue these days is Military Unit funding, obviously because everybody wants free money right? (chyea baby!) But how do we go about giving money to people, and getting some actual meaning from it? Not an easy question, and I don't claim to have an answer, just a suggestion.
Moving to a more earnings based supply system, will hopefully stir up and increase some activity within the CAF, making us a stronger force, and hopefully a little smarter of a force too. Currently we are supplying our soldiers with 600 CAD a week, and as a supply officer for 60+ members, I find it unfair for those who fight 50+ consistently, to get the same as those who fight 25 and under. Now I understand that we cannot all afford to go bat $h!t crazy, and we won't, that is why all active members will still receive a CAD supply, but just not as much.
As current systems go, we the CAF supply officers get our supplies usually Thursday or Friday of every week, and then start supplying from either Thursday if we are fast, till Sunday if we are slow. Now it is obvious that people may increase their activity during the end of the week to try and receive more funding, not necessarily a bad thing right, but it is how we currently operate. Ideally down the road, if we could have a few CAF members to count each and all members kill count per day, and make a tally for the end of the week, we could have a way better idea of who has earned more funding. Same general idea as the breakdown below, just with higher brackets to account for 7 days of fighting.
For our current system when supplying for the previous days kill count:
0 - 10 Kills = 200$
11 - 25 Kills = 400$
26 - 50 Kills = 600$
51+ Kills = 800$
I think a funding system along the lines of this would be a benefit to our MU to increase our effectiveness, and to decrease our overall funding waste. As the biggest MU, we receive the most amount of Canadian money, so we should make damn sure the tax payers money is being used effectively.
The numbers provided for my funding idea are rough, and would have to be worked out further for efficiency and sustainability.
