Head of Admins: Apophis is taking on the role of Head of Admins (which was vacant and covered by myself as Head of Staff) now that he's a part of our Lead Administrator team. He will be responsible for the general overview of our server's administration team, and will be the person that admin reports are sent to for review as well as any general questions and queries. This includes improving the knowledge and approach of our administrators and ensuring everybody is well-informed. The "staff report" thread will be updated to reflect this change, and I'll be sure to continue forwarding them myself in the interim to bridge the gap since I'm sure most people generally know to send them to my inbox. Apophis will also continue to oversee his Head of Property role until a suitable replacement is found, and will remain the point of contact for that.
Head of Game Development: Davis, as a senior administrator (3) and now the Head of Game Development is becoming a part of our in-game lead team (4) with responsibilities that tie into his position as Head of Game Development. This will allow him to be more in-touch with server affairs and assist with server leadership (as a more directly involved and functional liaison between administration and development) given that he is already a senior administrator in our admin team by his own merit. He will continue to be primarily responsible for development tasks, but will also cover general Level 4 Administrator responsibilities and be available to the community to offer assistance. Congratulations.
