Happy New Year! I hope you had a great 2018, and will have an even better 2019. Time certainly flies.
Tester Recruitment Drive: We recently ran another recruitment drive for the staff team. Thank you to everyone for yet another influx of applications and a high degree of interest from the community wanting to help out. We processed all of the applications and have a brand new batch to welcome into the team for the first time. There's also a few reinstatements to mention for this month. Congratulations to all those who made it into the staff team and I hope you enjoy yourselves as you enter 2019 as a part of our server's tester team. Welcome!
Company System: We recently updated the server and introduced the company system. This, in short, is a way for players to group together and form a company in-game where they can keep track of members, ranks and have access to a few server commands to help their role-play. This also includes the ability to have company-wide access to properties and the inclusion of static vehicles to share. You can read more about the company system and also submit a company application (if interested) here: https://forum.ls-rp.io/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=695217.
Modding/Mapping/Verified: If you're interested in helping out with our server's modding team (skins), our server's mapping (environmental, buildings, interiors, etc) or participating in the "verified discussions" section then please check the threads in the global announcements. You can find out how to apply to join the teams or verified discussions: a good way to contribute or participate in productive discussions!
Revision 10.10.0: With the release of 10.9.0 and 10.9.1, the development team are quickly moving on to 10.10.0. You'll be able to read more about that in Davis' Dev Blog after the initial brainstorming process is concluded. This is a good forum thread to subscribe to for information.
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 Discord as a means of getting in touch with me.
