Hello everybody, The past months have been great in general. Some minor downsides regarding server crashes has been our only big priority the past month. Now this thread is dedicated to some major and minor changes which will be announce in this post. Management The past few months the management has helped me out in managing the clan. However after asking them for a small survey we came to the conclusion that management members don’t see their function fit to be counted as a management function. With this conclusion I have decided to cancel the management project. Instead of having a management, an alternative will be searched to fill in the empty tasks. Server Crashes The past few months have been busy for me and the past month has made its toll for me. I haven’t been able to perform any maintenance on the forum nor the server for a couple of weeks, which resulted in a bunch of crashes and unsatisfied members. Last week I managed to get some maintenance done and upgrade our server to a newer version with some debug options enabled, so we (clan) and the developers (1fx. Boeman) can get to the cause of the crashes and fix it. In order to get our servers up and running as soon as possible once it crashed we would like you (visitors and members) to actively report server crashes to the management. Do that either on this forum or on our discord (discord.houseofpainserver.co.uk). We usually try to get the server up as soon as we get notifications of it being offline. Dictatorship I’m the only leader of this clan since the previous leader group has been forced to step down to take a cool-down regarding some drama. My plan in getting dictatorship has succeeded and to increase my power I have decided to bring my most trusted people around me. With this new step to greatness we are able to conquer our enemies, and push through new rules to make life tougher for our servants. With this I’m proud to introduce to you. Our new leaders Aria & Itzcoatl. They have been appointed to be the 2nd and 3rd leader to this clan, and to continue further once again with a 3 leader group. They will be the once to pick-up the empty tasks and take over duties when it’s needed. Responsibilities With these changes the roles and responsibilities will be changed to suit the new responsibilities and tasks. The thread will be updated as soon as possible by one of the leaders. For now we have settled upon the following division of responsibilities: Clan Policy: All Leaders Clan Activity: All Leaders Map cycle: Punisher, rest as advisors. Server Settings: Punisher, rest as advisors. Server & Forum Management: Punisher Social Media: Aria Ban Appeals: Aria, rest as advisors. Complaints: Aria, rest as advisors. Recruitment: Itzcoatl, rest as advisors. Ranks: Itzcoatl Promotions and Demotions: Itzcoal, rest as advisors. These are the current responsibilities set for our leaders. They are considered as “Spokesperson” for these responsibilities, subjects will be discussed with other leaders, when suited as necessary. Usually as advisors. Ranks As our first decision we have decided to re-instantiate back to our previous state with S-admin as higher rank. However B-admin will be changed to Clan, and the current Clan rank will be used to grand to Donators of our server. We want to let people know who donated to our servers, and who are supporting us financially. People making donations to our server will be granted the “Donator” or “VIP” rank. This will bring our ranking format to: Super Admin, Admin, Clan, Donator or VIP. These ranks will be elaborated lateron before pushing it through to the server.
