What is an RF Team?
In our mission to organize our community around their skills & interests, we’ve come up with a system designed for members looking to pursue and strengthen those skills. Teams are best described as small groups who share a similar set of skills, tasked to carry out a set of projects requiring those skills. The projects these Teams carry out ensure that RF as a community remains appealing and operational.
In the recent past, Teams could either be classified as interest-based or project-based. As of November 2021, Teams are now specifically used for project-based operations; interest-based Teams have been reorganized under Division Class D.
Unlike RF Divisions, which operate through their own, autonomous Discord servers, Teams operate through the RF Main Hub Discord server.

Teams may be comprised of up to 25 Team Members, and are led (or co-led) by 1–2 Team Captains. Captains assign tasks to their Team Members based on their skill or ability to contribute to the Team’s projects. Teams are a great way for RF Members to get more involved in the RF Command Structure, and are the main entry point for new RF Staff.
Team Captain and Division Leader are essentially the same positions in terms of where they rank hierarchically within the RF Command. They only differ in what they do: Divisions focus more on creating a fun experience for RF Members, while Teams focus on facilitating RF as a whole. Team Members are also more dedicated to the organization than the average Member, who makes up the majority of the Federation’s user base. Team Captains can also go on to become RF Administrators.
Names for Teams are pulled from the Greek alphabet and Greek terms. New Team Captains can pick their own name from this theme.
Team Reporting Requirements
Teams are required to complete a monthly report on their activities, either through a form or through a monthly check-in done by one of the Team Captains with RF Command. Team reporting helps RF Command determine the proper resources and support allocated to a Team’s operation. This also allows a chance for Team Captains to request further assistance or assets, such as graphics and Twitch channel appearances.
If a Team Captain fails to report in, the Team’s status is reevaluated.
