Today I’ve decided to do this quick update on what iv’e actually been “doing” over the past few days and to be honest, not much. At the moment I am in a very “stressful” position, I am effectively having to make up stuff as I go along, learn new skills, and still keep you guys happy. This is really difficult to do as you can probably imagine, and to make things worse I’m not exactly feeling great either. Today has been a real reflection to me, that if we want to make this server work, we need to keep putting 120% in from all staff and keep working to expand and grow.
So you may be thinking ok? So why have you not been doing any work over the past few days, well I will happily explain. The past 2 days I have spent devising a “plan” of how to move on in the future, thinking how to prioritise things over others and how I want everything to work, and in all honesty, its hurt my head, I have come to the point where I have realised “we can’t do it all” , well at least not all at once. We can give it our best shot, but never will we be able to do all the ideas I get into my head straight away, there is just far, far, far too many. And so, with help from the other staff, I have devised a way in which we can move forward, I will be sparing a lot of the details but below is a plan on what will be happening over the next few months.
Here we go
Ok so to start off, from now until Christmas the servers are going to stay in a “stationary” state, this means that the servers you guys play on will be having none to little work done on them (bar updating plugins etc) and will give us “the staff” to have a well earned break, this will allow us to play with you guys and have fun (which is not as easy for us as you may think). After Christmas though, is when the real work starts, we will be starting work on the new site theme and be looking into our new ventures (more info in the next few weeks) , these ventures will definitely be involving new servers, including a much wanted return of the FTB server .
So your probably wondering “well if your not actually going to tell us whats going on, then whats the point of this post” , well, here is the biggie, I over the past week have got the servers to the point where any of our staff are more than capable of running/fixing them, allowing me to work on the development of the new servers and features, which we hope will be awesome. Basically what im trying to say is, I will be stopping a lot of work on the site etc, for example, I wont be doing the posts, nor will I be doing the streams. Not to say they will no longer exist, I just wont be running them . I hope you guys are as excited as I am about the new servers, and apologise for the fact I wont be playing much on the server itself after Christmas.
Hope you guys understand
