Hey everyone,

The main thing I'd like to address in this update is the "LS:RP Survey 2016" that I put out through the month of September and the last week of August. This was everyone's opportunity to voice their thoughts on the server as it currently stands and provide constructive feedback (both positive and negative) so we can look at what the playerbase thinks is right, is wrong, and so on. We received a total of 406 submissions through the Google Forms survey that I put up - thank you to those who took the time to fill out the survey and contribute. I will, however, have to say I am putting a hold on the review of the survey until further notice. This is primarily due to my current time constraints as I want to sit down and go through everything with the right amount of care that the task needs and deserves. I believe that I will put up a survey like this every so often so people can voice themselves on the current state of the server and, as stated, I will be reviewing the feedback on this one when I have the time to properly dedicate to going through it carefully.

I would like to point out the response times and the handling of Report Players, Refund Requests, etc are at an all-time high, and we've had empty forum sections for weeks running because our team members are jumping on them as soon as they can. This is primarily due to the drop in new threads because Summer is over, but we will try to maintain this standard as it keeps everything moving swiftly. Thank you for your patience over the Summer period.

I will also be looking at promoting some new senior admins (4+) soon as I know one of the major quarrels that players have is waiting for a Level 4+ to come online to handle a request or an issue. However, you also have to understand that the 4+ team is small and truly has to be quality over quantity as they are a leadership team.

This pretty much sums up what I wanted to comment on from a staff team perspective this month, but there are definitely some things to look forward to as bring this year to a close. I hope you are enjoying yourselves!

Without further ado, I will move on to admin promotions and our team reinstatements:
