Today we have some exciting news we'd like to share with the community. To begin with, as of today a new 'team' has been added to the staff ranks here on Minecart. Essentially, this team will be referred to as the 'Management Team', at the head of which, will be our new 'Server Manager'. This role is basically to help the admins with much of the backend work, similar to our previous Manager role, helping the Administration team with bug reports, implementing suggestion and aiding with the overall maintenance of the server to ensure it runs smoothly from day to day. Unlike our previous Manager role, this role will be team based and will focus a lot around teamwork as opposed to a group of Managers working individually.
As of now, we can announce that we do have someone who has filled this new Server Manager role and will be overseeing our Management Team, that person will be @Claudio - congratulation to him and we welcome him to the team. Please note that this isn't a decision we have taken lightly, Skelly and I have been discussing this for a while in depth and have discussed it with Caleb also. We feel this is a positive step in the right direction to ensure the server will maintained. The team comes with their own strict guidelines to ensure that the server receives the best possible attention by people are going to be active and of real help to us.
Whilst we will be looking for people who are interested in joining our Management Team, this isn't a role we are going to hand to anyone on a plate just because, for example, you've set up a localhost server before. It comes with its own application and the applicant's knowledge will be tested. We will provide more information to anyone who is interested in applying in due course.
We would also like to congratulate @IElx on getting Helper, @Meaphf who is now our first Junior Admin (Just to clarify, this is a frontend only position) and finally @Muar who has now joined our Management Team. Congrats all.
Just wanted to inform you all that there will be a brief period of downtime tomorrow evening, approximately around 8pm EST. This is due to us needing to make a couple of minor adjustments to our Proxy server which may require numerous restarts. Therefore, we'd prefer to do this while everyone is offline as opposed to annoying you all with several restarts while you're trying to play.
We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause, but this shouldn't take us long at all so please bear with us during this period of time and we'll aim to get the server back up for you guys as quickly as possible.
