Here are the results of the June 2022 GSM.
Plans for the MRT 10th Anniversary
Expect no major staff-run events for this anniversary
The MRT’s 10th Anniversary is coming up on July 13th, 2022. Unfortunately, it looks like many of the staff are currently too busy with IRL obligations to organize any major events next month. Therefore, we would like to set your expectations now that there are no plans to run events at this time. That said, if members would like to run their own events around the anniversary, they are certainly welcome to do so and may submit funding proposals at the June ISM or July GSM.
New Admod Building selection process underway
The staff have started the process of choosing a new Admod building. There will be two stages of private voting for staff only:
- A Yes/No vote on if we want a new building.
- If Yes, this will be followed by a vote at the July GSM on which building we will go with.
Some staff members have already started building some candidate Admod buildings in the staff world. If #1 passes, then staff will have until the July GSM to construct a candidate building.
Mountbatten fails to achieve Premier rank
Staff considered one Premier candidate, Mountbatten by fellow staff member Mojang1014, at this meeting. However, the promotion was rejected by a 0-6 vote, mainly due to the lack of cultural significance, which is a pillar of the EPIC criteria on which we base our evaluations on for Premier cities.
More Discord Changes
Some additional minor changes have been made to our Discord server:
- With Discord rolling out text in voice channels, channels like #voice-channel and #event-voice-channel are now redundant. These channels have been removed.
- #birthdays is a new channel for birthday announcements and celebrations. Set your own birthday by typing
=birthday setin that channel. Any pings and celebratory messages should now be done in that channel instead of #general.
- Additionally, #new-members, #birthdays, and #auxiliary-discords are now grouped together in the new “Community” category.

The Future of ISMs
While scheduling staff meetings for the next 6 months, a question has been proposed on whether it makes sense to continue running ISMs due to the lack of submitted topics and member/staff attendance since January. After some discussion, it was decided that since there is usually an uptick of server activity in the summer that wanes in the fall, we will re-evaluate this question at the December 2022 GSM.
