Hey everyone,

Summer is now officially over and we move into the Autumn period. The server should quieten down a little and everything should be a little less hectic for everyone - including the staff team! I hope you enjoyed your time on the server over Summer and, just as importantly, also got to enjoy your time outside of the server as well.

The big thing that I'll mention in this update is that I put out the "LS-RP Survey 2016" which you can find in the global announcements. Without repeating myself too much - I'll just say that this is your opportunity to have your voice heard and voice what you like, what you don't like and what you don't like about the server so we can work on your feedback. I've done the same with the staff team internally and now I've moved the spotlight onto you guys so we can try and gauge what you want me and other staff members to place their focus on when it comes to changes.

I would like to make a quick comment s in relation to the recent Legal Faction rules. The latest one - M4 restrictions - was subject to change after being implemented. It is my opinion that the rule has caught out some people that are not maliciously abusing weapons so - as I stated when it was implemented - it will be re-reviewed for tweaks and changes to ensure that there are not too many OOC restrictions and the playing field is fair for everyone involved.

There's not much else to comment on this month, and we'll see what Autumn has in store for us. I've set the survey to close in mid-late September so the next month or two will be dedicated to going through that, and I will touch on that in a little more detail when I bring out my October update at the start of next month.

Without further ado, I will move on to admin promotions, reinstatements and our TA Graduation list:
