  1. Staff Update March 2024 Welcome Welcome to the March 2024 edition of the Staff Update! This month has been a big month for the community, as we continue to go from strength to strength we've taken some time to really try and refine some of the processes here, and with that, there's been some changes to the organisational structure of GTA World as a whole. We've managed to push a massive update for the gamemode that includes a lot of new scripts & an improvement in the welcoming process of our new players, but it's not over : clothes additions and more new features are coming very soon! We're beyond excited for what the future brings, and we've detailled these, as always, below. Management Update Over the span of our community's lifetime, we've grown from a small group of friends to thousands of active regular players, reaching peaks of over 1000 players on at one time. This is such an incredible achievement, and it's something we're very greatful of in terms of having the opportunity to grow and develop, and this is something we couldn't do without your support. For the longest time, we've had a very stable Management Team who have continued to push the community from strength to strength, overseeing all decisions in relation to this community, and we're very greatful for the hard work they continue to put in week by week to ensure that the community runs smooth as necessary. The Management Team are people who are picked by Nervous, and agreed by each of the Management Team to recognise their success in their roles in the admin team. They become part of a group that steer the direction of the community, make decisions on the rules that impact us, oversee each of the subteams and have a heavy involvement in the day to day running of the community as a more executive function. As part of our continued growth and development, it's only right that the management team continues to grow and form as we need it to, hence why we've created a new rank : Senior Management ! Senior Management The Senior Management rank is here to reward our most active & dedicated managers of the community, that have shown a true will to dedicate their daily time in helping each players individually while improving the server through their work & the way they led their team forward. Senior managers will be there to ensure that all managers are following our core values and that the server strategy from the development, community & assets aspects goes where we want it to be. Both Adv and Selena have been members of the staff team for years and long time managers, they fully deserve this promotion as they've done an incredible work as managers, and will keep doing even better in the months to come under these new responsabilities! Everett has been responsible for all of our web services and been here since the beginning with Nervous every day, and it's only right for him to also join the Senior Management Team, thank you for all you continue to do, and congratulations too! Additional Management Members As part of our continued growth it's important to recognise the achievement of some of our community's longest standing administrators, and welcome them to join the Management Team. It gives me great pleasure to welcome two people this month, Sharvit, and khadijeh. Sharvit Sharvit has been one of the community's longest standing Lead Admins for a long time. Having been a Staff Member since April 2020, he's almost consistently during that time proven himself to be an incredible asset to the strength of the community, working with Legal Faction Management and Staff Management at various points of his staff career. If you're a member of a legal faction leadership team, you'll have no doubt interacted with Sharvit heavily throughout your time in the community and he has always remained communicative, open, and willing to discuss things as necessary. His consistent effort in developing the Legal Faction side of the community hasn't gone unnoticed, and we're very greatful to welcome him to the Management Team. He will be working closely with Shanks, as before to ensure that all Legal Faction matters are met. khadijeh. khadijeh., previously known as honey., has been with our team since March 2021, and in that time has worked across almost every subteam in helping where she can. Starting out as a member of RPQM, she helped change the processes they used and helped organise them before moving to Illegal Faction Management and working her way up to lead the team. She brought in change and transparency, as well as communication to a team that can be the very strength of our illegal factions at times, and we're very greatful for her efforts there. After a long period leading IFM, she took the opportunity and decision to support the Staff Management team, and has since been part of the main strength behind the coordination of the team's role. We're thankful for her role, and very happy to promote her to Management, to work alongside Frezemis and Adv to ensure that our Staff Team's needs are met. Development Update This month has seen one of the biggest development updates we've seen in a while! With the 3.6 Update, not only have new systems been created, but lots of old systems have been improved and newly utilised. Our 3.6 update launched earlier this week showcased a huge amount of improvements, including: A fully formed Identification/ID System that is generated for players A new card game for you to play with your friends called 'ONE' A newly and heavily revamped drug system that will help make things better for all News Articles are now visible ingame and can be accessed! A newly optimised chatbox with more length than before More tooltips and hints showing as part of some brand new UI work. Huge updates to the ability to allow others to be introduced to the community, and to make the community more welcoming overall And over 60 new features, and addtions that have been made. You can view the whole changelog for the big update here. We're hugely greatful to the work the Modding and Development team continue to put into the community on a daily basis. Without their contributions, we wouldn't continue to advance and be able to provide the same unmatched experience every single day. This month's Stats Over the last month our team have answered: 10,791 Reports 7,990 Tickets 2,338 Apps Incredible numbers as always. We really appreciate all the hard work our admins put in on a day to day basis across the team.

  2. I appreciate all the comments that have been raised on this thread, and objectively since it was very much resurrected from the dead. We are in the process of re-writing our staff handbook, and a lot of this comes with changes of intentions in how we mediate, moderate and administrate roleplay and situations. No system will be perfect, but that doesn't stop us from trying our hardest to find a way to handle each situation. Now, I want to get rid of some of the perceptions i've seen in here, and hopefully, calm a couple of things before i close this discussion, but also talk about the changes that we're going to be setting forward. No Admin should ever be afraid of being staff reported. We receive, on average, 25 staff reports a week, stemming from punishment appeals because they feel they've been aggressively punished, or misunderstood situations, to misconduct reports where an admin has blatantly done wrong, to subteam reports where someone would like to see escalation where they feel a particular subteam has failed them. On average, most of our staff reports are Punishment Appeals - people think they've been overpunished, or they'd just like to try and clear something off their record. A lot of people spend a lot of time here asking for forgiveness and a second chance rather than actually appealing that they've done anything wrong, and a majority of these reports are concluded without any action taken. That's because, 90% of the time, the admins actually get the punishment right and we don't even need to contact them to confirm this. In the staff report itself, the most common outcome request starts "I don't want (x admin) punished, I just want this removed from my record." The admins who have misconduct reports filed against them will often be contacted and investigated for any wrongdoing on their parts, we'll have a discussion with them if we find any wrongdoing, and we'll either use this as an opportunity to help them learn, or talk to them about a requirement for immediate improvement, before we have to reassess their ability to administrate here. A good admin should never be afraid to be staff reported under our leadership because it's often a moment of reflection, and it's a process designed for growth, and an opportunity to learn, rather than anything else. Punishments cannot be set in stone. As much as we can provide a guideline - and it's this we try to teach during the TA phase with the peer-training each admin goes through, a lot of what you learn and how to handle a situation can differ drastically depending on many factors: - People involved - Reaction/Disturbance caused - Rules broken - Prior History - Player(s) attitude when being confronted or spoken to about the issue - And so much more.. I cannot expect the admins to have a standard way to punish someone who is blatantly causing disruption without giving a crap, versus someone who actually shows that they are looking to improve and who has made a mistake that they've admitted and can be easily rectified. There's things we can do to be better at protecting our roleplay environment However, I will concede, there are things we can do to make the team better, and that's what we're doing right now. There's more talks happening daily with Management, Subteam Leaders, and Staff Management as a whole as we try and define what we think is going to be the next step in how we handle certain situations, and- hopefully our staff will have a better guideline of how we should interpret, investigate, moderate, mediate and administrate situations going forward. Our goal is to get rid of a lot of what we already find confusing and make things more clearly defined. We aim to provide steps that an administrator should go through when they're punishing someone, through the work of @khadijeh. and @sevo predominantly at the moment, we're rewriting the Staff Manual in a way that can help cover most scenarios and articulate these best as a whole. We're also intending on a rule rewrite on several aspects that we find can be exceptionally difficult to understand, to make it easier for the average player to get to grips with how things are, but also help admins set a standard on certain things easier than they can at the moment. I also, want to end by saying that player's that purposefully continue to break rules and have them marked against their records as such will see an escalation in punishments as a whole to complete removal from the community, and it won't be what some have quoted here where you can get away with rulebreak after rulebreak just receiving a warning and ultimately ruining other's experience. Thanks for taking the time to mark your feedback on this thread in regards to the current systems, and trust that we're moving forward in a way to make this easier for admins and players as a whole.
  3. Staff Update February 2024 Welcome Welcome to the February 2024 edition of the Staff Update! This month has been extremely eventful on the community front, and maybe not entirely for the best of reasons at time, but we're greatful for your continued commitment to the server. Not only that, but a special word goes out to the staff who have been targeted as part of these attacks. You guys consistently put your time and effort in willingly to help our playerbase, and this month, it became harder than ever to do that whilst facing issues harder than ever before. We're so greatful for all you continue to do, and thank you, for everything. This month's staff update is jam-packed with updates, and as the community grows with time, and with players, and staff, its important to recognise and continue to assess the ever growing need of our staff team as a whole. As such, we get to make the following appointments. Lomadias Selena put it so well with these words: We're very greatful for the work that Lomadias has put in over almost 3 years, and we're very excited to welcome her into the Management Team. Serving with the team as a whole, as we grow, shape and develop, we're excited to introduce another well-respected and well-deserved member of the admin team to our growing team. She brings a wealth of experience from her time in Property Management and working with other teams to collaborate on some of the server's bigger projects and we're excited to see what she brings to the management team as a whole! Welcome, Lomadias. Wuhtah Selena got to start again as Head of PM by saying: After serving the team for almost 3 years in many roles including Staff Management, and always committing a lot of time and diligence to Property Management as well as regularly month on month meeting the expectations of general admin work, we are very happy to promote Wuhtah to Lead Administrator. Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do. We're also very excited to welcome Acid and Kenth to Senior Administrator roles. Acid has been a hard working part of the Illegal Faction Management, and Community Focus team for a while, and we're really greatful for his passion and perseverance. Kenth has been a long serving and proactive member of Roleplay Quality Management and we're very greatful for all he's done there to support the team and its growth, and high demand. Thank you both, and congratulations too! Development Update Over the last month the development team have been hard at work in releasing new features, but special mentions go to: - The new druglab and drug systems developed by Gibbz, and Price - The plethora of new features that became available to pet owners for their cats/dogs, by St3fan as well as updates and modifications made by 808masterus and million. - The work on the news articles system in game by Gibbz. - The new recoil system in vehicles by Strobe. You can read all about those changes here. Thank you, Development Team for your continued hard work. You help continue to make the server better each and every month and we're greatful for what you do.

  4. Staff Update November 2023 Welcome Welcome to the November 2023 edition of the Staff Update. Spooky October has come to an end! We appreciate the local businesses and properties that dressed up their houses/businesses to celebrate Halloween and the festival hosted by Akan and Prestige. There were at least ~150 people in that event alone! Next up is Thanksgiving and Christmas! Looking forward to the creative ideas the community has dressing up their houses and businesses. Let's dive into the staff update! Development Update San Andreas Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has launched if you were not aware! They've got a fully working and operating prison at Boiling Broke. It's been a long time coming and now it's here. Throughout the month of October we had a ton of updates and we couldn't be more thankful for the hard work the devs put in each month. We're truly continuing to deliver great features, and continuous development which only helps continue to make GTA World continue to keep pushing to be better each and every day. The Game Changelog for the month of October can be found here! Staff Management Over the last few months, Staff Management has been a hive of activity. Between shifting to the new UCP reports system, and welcoming onboard a whole flurry of new members, we've had a bit of a restructure too. With the ever-increasing size of our staff team, the needs of our Staff and the team itself definitely rise month on month, and it can be beyond demanding on a small group of people to assist our team. Frezemis, as of this update, has been Head of Staff for an entire year, and we're greatful for his dedication to the role. We've decided to assist Frezemis by bringing in an additional Head of Staff, Adv, who will be assisting with the day to day running of the Staff Team, organisation and being on the forefront of anything staff within the community. The "Head of Admins", "Head of Support" and assistant head titles that were held respectively have now been merged into a wider Staff Management Team, which now has two "tiers", Staff Management Leadership and Staff Management as a whole. Staff Management Leadership are here to assist with the day-to-day running of the SM Team, they will keep on top of the report flow. This allows room for three people, two with an 'admin-focus' and one with a 'support-focus' to help steer and lead our team forwards. Staff Management members beneath will work with the Leads to handle reports, interact with staff members, communicate across the team and do all they can to support our growing and successful team in any way they can month on month. With that, we have a few new faces! We're happy to welcome honey. and Igloo into the Staff Management Team, as well as josef who will be training over the next month and learning the ropes. Over the past two months, Giga and Olivia have trained their way through the team, learning the ropes, and we're really excited to welcome them as full members of Staff Management, Giga, on the support side with Olivia working across the team with a team relations focus, and we congratulate them on both making Senior Admin for their continued efforts. There's always more to come with the day to day in Staff Management, but continuous and systematic improvement is something we aim to deliver across the whole team, and we're excited to welcome in the new team members to help us accomplish that. Property Management Although not a 'promotion' in the staff team, Property Management would love to officially welcome @Wuhtah as Head of Leasing. We're excited to have her back in the role, and are greatful for her time and dedication! This month's Stats Over the last month our team have answered: 7,166 Reports 6,714 Tickets 1,467 Apps The team have also answered over 200 forum reports and are continuing to smash out all kinds of refund requests, asset transfers, etc, on a regular basis. We're super greatful for your work, as always.

  5. This sale isn't going ahead.
  6. Please forward me evidence of this against my faction members and I'll handle this internally.
  7. Staff Update August 2023 New Look 👀 Welcome to our August 2023 Staff Update. As those of you eager-eyed amongst you may notice, we now have a new revamped forum theme (Thanks @FatCatTuxedo and @million for your work on this). We're really excited that you get to see this, after a couple of months in the making, and we hope you appreciate the thought that has gone into the new clean layout we have across the site. If you're not a fan, the old theme is still available in the bottom left for you to quickly change back to, and will remain available for the near future however it won't be updated in future upgrades. Development Update With our development team being so efficient, and updates rolling out every day, there's so much to cover in a monthly update! These are some of the features we feel deserve the biggest spotlight this month, and are worth everyone knowing about.: Dumpsters. This may seem like a minor addition but think about the endless opportunities! Dumpsters now have inventories that can be used by anyone. This is perfect for those drug deliveries, drug deals or even if you need to send a message to someone. Put a note in there, dump a phone, dump your weapons if you really need to get away from it! Endless opportunities on that one if you are creative. It can just be used as trash if you have too many items and you want to get rid of them. Feature documentation can be located directly HERE Cooking. We got cooking! My personal favorite. You can now use a campfire or even cook at your home or a friends home as long as you have access to the property. Buy some groceries at one of our grocery stores which are scattered across the map with a current total of six stores. There's a bunch of recipes to make for any sort of event whether it's pizza, burgers or even a grilled cheese if you want to be easy! Perfect addition for those cooking at their properties OR even going out on trips like camping, hiking and so on. I'm expecting more RVs and trucks out with campfires and cooking! Definition an amazing feature to add to the immersion and give something extra to do on those trips. Feature documentation can be located directly HERE Peephole. Peek-a-boo! You can now look through your door's peephole when you hear someone knocking or even if you hear something outside your door and just want to check. This evens out the playing field here a bit since the police have snakecams and now we have peepholes. You have LSPD knocking on your door? You can now see who it really is. Cooking in your home using the new cooking system and you hear a bunch of knocking but didn't invite anyone over? You can check before calling the police or a friend! Feature documentation can be located directly HERE Corpses & Looting. Now I'm sure we've all been around long enough to see how our old corpse system worked. Someone accepted death and leaves a stack of items behind on the floor which ended up in you accidentally dragging the body sometimes. Well! That's changed a bit. Now corpses have an inventory drop kind of like the dumpsters do, but it's not available for quite some time so if you really want what that body has you need to drag it away or bring it away for some time then you will be able to take those items. OH! Forgot to mention the corpses save after a restart as well! Changelog can be located directly HERE Many more! There's many more updates and features added in during the month of July! Here is a direct link from July 1st moving to current. You can find it here. We want to thank our development team for once again working as hard as they do to ensure the server's stability and give us new exciting features to enhance our roleplay or everyday uses! Amazing work Dev Team!
