I am more then willing to share information that could help others get to know myself and the vision behind Lotus.

To start us off I will give a little information.

Awesome! Our fearless leader is a fellow Canadian!

Anywho, what was the vision behind Lotus? I am intrigued now.  Shocked

The vision behind Lotus comes from the Lotus Flower itself. Lotus's are often found growing in a swamp region on murky waters.
In this I have found the murky muddy waters to be unknown and darkness of the world. As the flower sits on top brimming in white.
It shelters all beneath the unknown murky waters.

To me this gives divine statement to. "The Grand White Lotus Shelters All" for the Lotus sits on top of the water. Or in my mind, Water meaning the
Unknown World. The Lotus is a glimpse of hope found in murky swamps. It is a Lily among the thorns in it's reference.

Something fragile and yet awesome to behold. The Lotus takes resources from the murky water to become bigger and more beautiful. Thusly I say.
"May the Lotus Always Bloom"

This is some history behind what the Grand White Lotus is. I hope it gives you inspiration as it has myself.

Our fearless leader,

I'm assuming you do (otherwise why would you do it), but do you like leading Lotus and talking to all the members?

I love Lotus and speaking to our members. I have also enjoyed running a guild and the socialism that goes along with it. It allows me to be a bigger part of a community and to give back and help others. I find that leading is a natural role for myself and the people around me help me choose the right direction to lead to.

I am a very open person and welcome everyone into Lotus who wants to be here. They can be any type of player and as social as they like. I will help when I can and for what I can.

It's awesome that we have very similar jobs with mine being a System Engineer but more specifically Microsoft Server Security for Server 2012 and Exchange Server 2012, as well as with Linux Apache Web Server in Red Hat. If I may ask what is a normal workday for you, fearless leader Drake Very Happy?

Well... I work for Shaw Cable Systems in Calgary. My normal day for me has me dealing with all kinds of projects and escalations. I do training for new agents in technical support. Or I can be debugging back end systems for iron gate spam filters to firewalls. I am a jack of all trades and today I delbt with a escalation on one of the Shaw employees giving the incorrect phone number to a 3rd party Microsoft shell company. She was hacked and left with a funderfull virus that I got to purge. So I can deal with the public or with lots of random stuff. My main role in a day is to help where I am needed. Based on demand and my skill set. Which usually involves me dealing with computers, hackers, and Viruses.

Nice, sounds way more interesting than what I have to do at work D:. I work for Derive Technologies in their second site location in the Financial District on Wall Street in NYC. I just configure stuff in Server 2012, Exchange 2012, System Center 2012, and Sharepoint. Its highly technical but very boring stuff. I've never had any kind of problem with a virus or Trojan at work because of how secure the infrastructure is. All I ever get are simple stuff, like creating distribution points, errors with DNS, DHCP, DFS, Certificates, Backups, Deployments, etc. Your job sounds much more fun, dealing with viruses and hackers Very Happy

I have seen it. I did not mind that show.
This name though comes from an inside joke between me and the founders of Lotus Razz
