Discussion in 'Empire News' started by MoreMoople, Mar 2, 2023.

  1. We're marching right on into March! This month's newsletter covers community team and staff updates, as well as the new event schedule and other fun information. Check it out!

    Community Team Updates
    • Build Team
      • The Build Team is making good progress on the next event! We will be finishing it up this month and releasing it sometime in April. Can't wait for you all to see it!
    • Contribution Team
      • In the last month, the team created three new pages for the Valentine's Day promos: Blossom Bouquet, Box of Chocolates, Love Bug.
      • chickeneer and the Contribution Team edited over 10 wiki pages, including:

    • Think Team
      • The Think Team is a new community team that chickeneer is putting together. This team's focus will be assisting the developer team with certain creative/design decisions.
      • The application and other details aren't ready to release yet, but it is being worked on!
    • Media Team
      • The Media Team is a new community team that is replacing the Stream Team. Once the team is up and running, team members will create graphics and short videos for use on the EMC forums and social media platforms!
      • MoreMoople is currently working on the application and guidelines, so get those portfolios ready! ;)

    Staff Updates
    • chickeneer posted a thread with many important updates! It covers the new community teams, changes to the staff team to distribute duties better, and recent changes to the forums. Read about it here!
    • The staff team has also been working on a new tutorial. You can see a summary of the plans and give feedback here!
    • If you haven't claimed your Love Bug yet, use the command /promo vday2023 or pick it up in /shopworld before it's gone!
    Use /report to let staff members know about activity that breaks the rules!

    Developer Updates
    • Last month, chickeneer added code for the Love Bug promo. He also fixed bugs for the Love Bug and horses.
    Please remember to report any bugs to pmdev.emc.gs!

    Noteblock Music Contest
