Meraki [may-rah-kee] (adjective) This is a word that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put “something of yourself” into what you're doing, whatever it may be
Team Meraki Gaming is a professional eSports team with a rising fanbase. Founded by Aldo Bellingan, a dedicated gamer and entrepreneur, with a vision of changing the gaming industry and creative platforms in South Africa. We remain committed to improving our skills, achieving victory and creating an entertaining experience for our dedicated fans. This industry is growing rapidly, and we are proud to be part of the wave of success.
Team Meraki Gaming currently has teams in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Rocket League and in Assetto Corsa. All these teams are aiming to compete on the highest-level South Africa has to offer and we are continuously improving our teams as we progress.
We like to view Meraki Gaming as a big family where we enjoy ourselves and spread our joy to others on the platform via social media. We are trying to prove to society that gaming isn’t only for the shy, for the insecure or for the kids who wear glasses, gaming is an endless world where people of all ages, religion, races and genders can express themselves and enjoy what they are doing.
1. Be inclusive.
We welcome and support people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, color, immigration status, sex, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
2. Be considerate.
We all depend on each other to produce the best work we can as an organization. Your decisions will affect clients and colleagues, and you should take those consequences into account when making decisions.
3. Be respectful.
We will not all agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for disrespectful behavior. We will all experience frustration from time to time, but we cannot allow that frustration become personal attacks. An environment where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive or creative one.
4. Choose your words carefully.
Always conduct yourself professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down others. Harassment and exclusionary behavior are not acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:
Threats of violence.
Discriminatory jokes and language.
Sharing sexually explicit or violent material via electronic devices or other means.
Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
Unwelcome sexual attention.
Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
5. Don't harass.
In general, if someone asks you to stop something, then stop. When we disagree, try to understand why. Differences of opinion and disagreements are mostly unavoidable. What is important is that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively.
6. Make differences into strengths.
We can find strength in diversity. Different people have different perspectives on issues, and that can be valuable for solving problems or generating new ideas. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint does not mean that they are wrong. Do not forget that we all make mistakes and blaming each other does not get us anywhere. Instead, focus on resolving issues and learning from mistakes.
