Not much to mention in this month's update because of the anniversary update mid-month. This month's update consists of a few admin promotions and some admins returning to the team. We're bolstering support numbers for the Summer with the large tester recruitment drive held during the mid-month update, and with new and returning administrators. I encourage you to read the anniversary announcement:

As I've said time and time again, it's always very nice to see the overwhelming support from community members, and their continued interest in helping out with our staff team. All of the dedicated people that offer to get involved and help out are the reason that the wheels keep turning behind-the-scenes. If you're somebody who's been around for a long time and knows the ins and outs of the server — you should consider getting involved! There's plenty of different areas for you to delve into and help out with, and there's something for everybody in the staff team. We figured the anniversary would be a great time to introduce a large batch of brand new testers to the team, so we saved that for this mid-month anniversary announcement.
We are mostly finished with our server migration after the recent string of announcements from Mmartin. There won't be any server event this year because the development team have been hard at work with that and ensuring our services are stable as we go along. Mmartin has also been working on bringing more activity into the development team. With otter back on track as our Lead Gamemode Developer and brand new Junior Developers being introduced to the team for the first time in a while, we should see more cyclical/frequent server revisions to address issues, incorporate suggestions and introduce new server features. It is also our intention to explore further player model additions, custom objects, textures and mapping for 2018. You are encouraged to pool your thoughts in the Suggestions Board as the development team will be going through the section in the near future and processing everybody's topics. This is the best platform to voice your ideas and provide opinions on other people's suggestions for server features or tweaks. Quality of life updates are also a big focus of Otter's new development agenda.
