Another month has gone, and we're approaching fall rapidly, leaving the summer days behind. This means we'll once again be bolstering our ranks in the staff team with 19 new testers! This way we'll make sure we always have staff ready to service the community, and help out where help is needed in our internal sub-teams along with speeding up the application process. However, accepting a batch of testers isn't the only new thing happening this month. This month, we're making some internal changes so that I don't have to spend all my time on LS:RP, meaning DadoJ will be stepping up to Head of Admins and Cayl will take his place as Head of testers. I'm looking forward to work closer together with both of them, and see how we can improve the staff team in the future.
This month I'm adding some of the Team Leaders highlights in the staff update to help put focus on important topics or just helping informing the community of changes that are happening in the different teams.
Without further ado, the promotions!

The State of Legal Factions
As for the State Government, I'll be acting Governor until a new Head of Legal Factions is found. I'm working together closely with Maxim to ensure that the State Senate are able to do their job.

Modding Team Update
Whilst the modding team has not been in the spotlight a lot over the last few months, there have been a couple of projects in the works behind the scenes. With the latest revision a bunch of new faction related skins have been added, and the team is currently working on revamping the models on the server. This includes fixing skins that requires some editing, removing those that serve no purpose anymore and adding new ones for everyone to use.
One of the other projects that was mentioned a couple of months back is the furniture update. The modding team will make and implement new custom models for the furniture system, there is a community feedback thread on that found here. The team has been making a lot of progress and it is expected that new additions will be added to the furniture system real soon! Definitely something to look forward to!
The modding team has its own Twitch stream, over at twitch.tv/lsrpmodding where they do regular streams showcasing current projects and teaching the viewers about modding, but also interact with the viewers to learn new stuff themselves. On the weekend there are contests that involve real prize money, so it is definitely worth giving the channel a follow and join the modding discord to be alerted when they go live.

Side Jobs Update
Hey! We're now in to September. Crazy! I took over the Side Job Moderation Team two months ago with the release of the July update. Since then, we've all been working hard behind the scenes to keep the section active and to ensure that everyone who enquires about a side job gets a prompt reply.
Going forward, we're open to your suggestions on any new side jobs that you'd like to see introduced and run under the Side Job scheme. You can directly PM any ideas you may have to myself.

I'll also use this opportunity to remind you all that Detective and Boxing/Kung-Fu Instructor applications are still open, you can find out more here: viewforum.php?f=687
August was a great month - lets make September another one!
