Hey everyone,

In this update, I will touch on my intentions for the next few months for the staff team. We are quickly approaching Summer, which is usually our busiest time of the year for player count and server interest with the Summer holidays.

It is vitally important to have a full administration team to help manage the server during this busy period, and I am working to ensure that we have a balanced staff roster. This means promoting those who have experience in the admin team and have earned a bump to the next position as well as bringing in new blood to the admin team. As you will read below, numerous people have received an admin promotion and we are currently in the process of training brand new admins from the Tester team. I will also be looking at further changes in the coming months.

I will also use this opportunity to talk about /re and /report etiquette and ensuring that you, the players, are being fair and courteous to other players/staff. To help us to help you, you should only /re or /report when it is necessary and an admin's presence is required to intervene and fix an issue. We would want an admin's availability to be used on important and appropriate reports, and not squandered on issues that can be resolved amongst players. It is not fair on other players to disrupt role-play scenes or involve an admin when it is not needed, and we need to ensure that role-play comes first and foremost. Some of the issues can be settled on the forums via "Report Player" if the problem is not immediately pressing. In-game admins are available to attend active rule-breaking or emergencies across the server and Testers are available to answer any questions that you may have. Please bear these comments in mind whilst in-game!

Without further ado, I will move on to promotions and our TA members:
