Staff Team Update — May 2018

Hey everyone,

The next month or two will be about bolstering our team numbers for the summer. We'll be introducing a batch of new testers to the team either during the month or at the next staff update, thanks to our recent tester recruitment drive. Thank you to everybody who applied and expressed interest, it's always great to see such continued interest in becoming a part of our server's staff team. Alongside that, we're obviously (as below) going to be training up some new administrators to be available over the summer period as well as bolstering higher admin level numbers so that we have administrators available to process any requests. This primarily revolves around new level 3 admins in the coming months. The plan is to offer adequate admin support and the smoothest experience to players as they hop in-game and enjoy themselves over the holiday periods.

For this staff update, there is not much more to mention. I encourage you to read through prior months to get a feel of what we've got going on, and what opportunities are available to players if interested. I apologise for the delays with the last skin update, but the developers have been busy and they'll be coming back around to push out some more revisions and mull through your suggestions soon as we move towards summer.

Account Purge: Make sure you're aware of Mmartin's announcement here (https://forum.ls-rp.io/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=668797) which details an upcoming account purge. The idea is that any accounts that are completely unused (people who create a character, then never actually play on it) will be deleted from the database. This will make over 90,000 character names available for use. There have been a lot of accounts made over the years as I'm sure you know, and this purge will free up a lot of name combinations for players to use. The list isn't going to be publicised (because there's so many!) but players will likely find that a lot more of their desired character names aren't taken when they try to pick them.

Apartments & Auctions: For those of you interested in the recent apartment complexes (see the announcement), we'll be putting out more and more of them via property auctions so there's a good chance most players will be able to snag an apartment of their own if they want to buy one. There's some good areas, and adding more complexes gave players the opportunity to live in areas of the city that you couldn't before.

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 day-to-day basis. Forum PM is always the best way to get in touch with me and guarantee that I see your message. Please don't rely on IRC or Discord as a means of getting in touch with me.



I will move on to announce a batch of tester reinstatements, admin reinstatements, admin promotions, TA graduations and new TA inductees:
