The May General Staff Meeting has taken place, and I have a lot of important things to announce from this meeting. The recording for the public and Q&A portion of the meeting is available here.
NEW SERVER RULES ARE NOW IN EFFECT. These are pretty much the same rules proposed at the April GSM, including the new warning policy and abolishment of the Permanent Guest status. The only parts that are not currently in effect are the Road/Rail Construction Rules, which are still being determined, and the Restricted Build rules, which are tied to new ranks. The new ranks, of course, are not in effect until the new world is ready. Please be sure to read the NEW RULES on the website.
To coincide with the new rules, we’ve also updated our member application with additional questions.
The April Build Auction has concluded, and the results can be viewed here. The May Build Auction has now started, and some builds from the April auction have been carried over to the new auction. The May Build Auction will conclude at the next GSM, which will likely be scheduled near the beginning of June.
For the new ranks, the new [Trustee] rank has much more lenient requirements than the current Trusted rank. Since we’ll be moving to this new system eventually, I’ve decided to promote most Mayors to the [Trusted] rank.
Mayors who fulfill the following criteria are likely to be promoted:
- Been with the server for a significant amount of time (at least 1-2 months).
- Hasn’t had any recent warnings in the past 1-2 months.
- Currently active on the server and visited within the past 1-2 months.
- Works well with others on the server, and generally has a positive attitude.
The following 27 Mayors have been promoted to [Trusted]:
Congratulations to all of you!
Finally, all warnings issued from April 1st or earlier should now have been cleared. If you have a warning from before this date, please let a staff member know so they can clear it.
That’s all for now, thanks!
