Summer has officially begun! Unless you live in Australia, then it's officially winter. It is a tradition for us to bring forth new staff members when the summer season approaches, because that's when we usually peak with activity around our platforms. Last month we brought in a handful of new testers, and this month we're looking to graduate the Tester-Admins to fully pledged Junior Admins. This'll help us combat the demand for faster handling of applications to join the server, and it'll help us with the reports submitted in game and on the forums. Furthermore, we also decided to promote some experienced administrators to the role of Senior Administrator, so that the staff report response times should be quicker, and your vehicle requests will be handled more promptly.
Internally, we've also started searching for an Event Team Leader, a Support Team Leader and a new Head of Side Jobs. These positions are important to me, because it means the workload will be delegated more evenly, and thus I'll have more time to help out with management-specific duties. Now, without further ado, the promotions for the month of June:
Lucky. - Amine - Vert - westham - Zapper - MatthewB - Anthony_Navarra - Nova
Promoted to Game Administrator
Promoted to Senior Administrator
Coral - Iudex - Orbit
Returning Junior Administrators
Benavides - Sheffield
Congratulations everyone, and I look forward to working closer together with all of you!
Custom Open World Interiors & EXCLUSIVE Lease
Many of you may have discovered that some properties use the custom world interior to furnish their houses in, making it easier to fit the dimensions realistically. While this is a challenge to build, it's also astonishingly fun to play around with and creates the perfect immersion! In the past, it's been restricted to a case-by-case basis, and thus making it hard to obtain as there's never been any guidelines around it. Now we've finally introduced it to the property changes changes, however, with some additional rules to it. Be sure to check it out here.
Additionally, we've opened up Mad Dogs Mansion in Vinewood Hills to be leased exclusively. This is a privilege a faction can obtain, however, it does cost a hefty sum each month to keep, and activity is required as well. Give it a look here.
