Throughout the last few months, Faction Management have came together and formed an entirely fresh system that a faction will go through that are pushing for an official spot. The official reviewing process has been revamped to align into the server's new direction. Faction's will no longer wait year(s) to become an official candidate or official faction in itself.
When a faction applies for official, as a candidate, they will be given a handler who in which will ensure their faction is providing regular updates, requests and general questions which will be taken into account month by month — when the official candidate has been deemed suitable for a spot, a final review will be handled by Faction Management, via a discussion. A faction's administrative record, role play quality and general atmosphere get considered and how they've performed throughout their 'candidate' process, those and a multitude of other factors will be discussed to figure out if the faction in question is worthy for the spot.
Faction Management will be internally discussing development changes, additions and script-wise adjustments to enhance faction role play throughout the coming weeks and months. If you have any suggestions that can enhance a faction's time within the server — get in touch with any Faction Management Council member.
Faction Management Public has now been taken over by Chuckles, any Faction Management Public questions, concerns or queries can be directed to Chuckles from now on.
Moving forward, SAN will be repurposed to fit the needs of the server at large. Rather than being used as a primary faction, the San Andreas Network will be a means of facilitating roleplay and distributing information throughout the community in an IC manner. Players will be able to forward server-relevant information to be formatted and published as an article, allowing players to dictate what content is going to be uploaded, rather than a stream of mostly irrelevant / uninteresting topics being posted. The faction will be moving away from the standard faction script itself, instead being merged with the LS:RP Media Team.
Three factions are being pushed into an official spot this month. Each faction's dedication, commitment to role play and atmosphere they provide make them the perfect candidates for an official spot within the server. Congratulations to The Licciardi Crime Family, White Pride and Ganton Movement on becoming the next official representatives who will push the next era of role play for the server. Faction Management wishes you the best of luck.
