Spoiler: show
Over the time period I have taken over staff and even before this time, I realized we have nothing set in stone to actually let everyone know who does what and where around the server. We have so many staff members who are responsible for areas, sections, even just small little parts that go unnoticed and most of the community will not even realise that role is even in place. I've worked with the In-Game Lead team to be able to establish the Community Map for the ease of communication and so everyone knows who to go for in relation to that set issue they're having. Please use this map going forward to divert any issues you have within that set area to the leader and also to just know what goes on where behind the scene.

The map is set out in a clickable version, so you will see the role, who currently leads that role and then if you click on that it'll take you down to a description about the role in which you want to find out. Hope this helps for future reference around the community! Reports on any set section or anyone within that section belong to the leader of it, for example - Admin reports belong to the Head of Staff/Admins, Tester reports belong to the Head of Testers via Private Message (click the name). We do not have a set format to follow, be sure to just include as much information as possible along with any evidence gathered.
