Discussion in 'Empire News' started by MoreMoople, May 2, 2022.

  1. Happy May! I hope that you all have a wonderful month. Without further ado, here are some updates about things happening around EMC!

    Community Team Updates:
    • Build Team
      • Last month, the Build Team released the 2022 spring event, Bunny Corp.! Head over to /games and step on the teleport to start helping Mr. Bunny get ready for spring. This event will close on May 8th, so make sure you check it out soon!
      • Please welcome our newest Build Team member, Progryck! They have officially completed their training and we are very excited to work with them on upcoming builds.
      • The Build Team has started working on the next major event build. It will be a few months before it is ready to release, but the team has already made good progress.
    • Contribution Team
      • The Contribution Team made various minor improvements to the Wiki during the last month. The team also released a new page about the Bunny Family Boots, the prize for this year's spring event by the Build Team!
      • Updates for the landing pages are still in progress. For those who aren't familiar with the landing pages, they are what people see when they look at EMC's website for the first time. We hope that these updates will help us bring more new players to EMC.

    Staff Updates:
    • The Senior Staff are looking for new moderators to join the staff team! If you think you would be a good fit for the position, apply here!
    • Do you know somebody who would make a good staff member? Recommend them here!
    • The Day of Chance event is moving to Fridays at 8:30 PM! Day of Chance is an event that is randomly selected each week by rolling a die. Check out the thread to see what the next event will be!
    • Events are now being posted on the EMC Discord in addition to the forums. Click on the "Event" button above the channels and then press "Interested" to be notified when the event starts!
    • If you missed the Time Capsule opening event, don't worry! The capsule will be open until May 7th, so you can still add or remove stuff from your chest.
    Don't forget to use /report to let staff members know about activity that breaks the rules!

    Developer Updates:
    • Testing for the Games server update is currently in progress! There are some bugs that need to be fixed, but it is getting closer.
    • A small update went out last month that involves the report system. If a player receives 5 reports in a short period of time, they will be temp muted for an hour until a staff member is available to review the reports. Read more about it here for additional important details.
    • Another small update recently went out with the nightly reboot. This was a bug fix update that fixed collision issues with entities and a few other recent bugs. It also includes an experimental change to re-enable invisibility potions. Check out the post here for the full details!
    Please remember to report any bugs to pmdev.emc.gs!

    New Player Spotlight:
    In the last month, we have had some awesome new players who joined our community and posted introduction threads. Please check out their threads and give them a warm welcome!
    We have also had some older players who posted threads in the introduction section after returning from an extended break. Be sure to stop by their threads and tell them welcome back!
    Are you a new or returning player? Post an introduction thread here to help the community get to know you!

  13. What for? I think it makes more sense for the monthly newsletter to be updated monthly. And it's not June yet.
