There's a new month, and with it a few things I'll be updating you about in this post.
Evan5282 and ShadowCrystal000 tied on voting for first place, and will both get their rank upgrade. As they both had Diamond, they'll both be ranked up to the last donator tier, Obsidian.
Total value of prizes: 100 USD$
Since school has started, staff obviously cannot be as active as they were in the summer.
We decided to open up staff applications (which are still open).
ZoeBat is now our second SkyBlock exclusive moderator, please welcome her to the team.
There will be 2 more promotions in the near future, for Towny in this case.
These persons have already been selected, I just need to be online at the same time as they are now :)
As mentioned before, staff applications are still open. You will not get a response to the e-mail, even if you're accepted. We read all of them carefully and sort them in category's depending on how your mail is, and what we have seen of you in the game and on the forums.
Even if you were accepted, you might not get a staff position until we really are in need of staff again. This may be soon, or it may not be. Only time will tell.
We are still not fully prepared for 1.8, so I advise you not to update just yet. We will be updating as soon as we feel that our software and infrastructure is ready to handle it, as development wise it's a fairly big update and may cause big issues if this isn't handled right.
I will be working on a new iteration of the FreezeTag plugin because, in all honesty, it was very poorly written by the previous developer which causes it to lag as much as it does.
I'm still slowly but steadily working on a few new plugins that'll be exclusive to Omega, so keep an eye out for those!
I hope you're all going to have a great month.
To all of you that started school again, good luck!
To all of you that didn't, you're in luck! (Or not, depending on your situation).
Have a wonderful day.
