Summer's around the corner again! It seems like only yesterday we were welcoming in 2019. As per usual, we are actively working on strengthening our staff team for Summer to support the increased activity on the server and the larger influx of requests from the community. Every year we work on bolstering our tester and admin team to try and ensure around-the-clock coverage and support for the community.
We will be welcoming a brand new batch of testers to our staff team with this update. As always, it's fantastic to see such a high level of interest from our community when applications for the staff team open. We received upwards of ~120+ applications this drive, but can only accept a certain number of candidates each time we hold a drive. We will be welcoming 22 new testers into our team this month. If you did not make the cut this time: try again next time! Being active on the server and demonstrating qualities fit for our staff team will aid your chances. We particularly like to see candidates actively posting on our boards in a constructive and friendly fashion. Verified Discussions is a good medium for that. If you don't have years of experience on the server then that's always a good way to keep up with current affairs and get more involved.
We are also introducing 7 of our staff team members to the Tester-Admin Scheme to bolster our administrative numbers for the Summer, too. They will work across the next month (or longer) to qualify as Level 1 Administrators and join our administration team.
Verified Discussions: This is a reminder to check out the Verified Discussions forum and, if you're interested in contributing there, be sure to read the announcement about it. This continues to be a more productive area to generate discussions with the community.
Contact: My inbox is always open for queries and comments. If you want to strike up a conversation with me about something that concerns you, or want to flag my attention to a discussion that could use input or management's opinion, feel free to reach out to me and let me know. I try to respond to every message that I receive despite the amount that I get on a daily basis. Forum PM (on these boards) is always the best way to get in touch with me and guarantee that I see your message. Please do not rely on Discord as a means of getting in touch with me directly.
Congratulations to the following people who will be welcomed into our staff team for the very first time:
