Hello my fellow GenuineMC family,
It is update time and this one is a rather serious one. As some of you are aware, I have been away because I am in the current process of getting my teacher certification. This program requires me to write about and to comment on various things about my teaching practices, which is taking up a lot of my time. However, I am anticipating being done with this project by November 5th or 6th. Though I won’t be out of the hot water following this submission, I will be able to come back on GenuineMC more often.
In my time away, there are various things I have noticed, and I want to bring it to the public’s attention. If we are going to be a successful server, we, as a staffing team, should be open to the public. So here are some things that have come to my attention:
Even though I have expressed its importance numerous times, it still seems to be an issue among staff and the player base. If we are going to make it as a gaming server, we need to communicate our thoughts, our worries, and our wants. If you want to comment on something good or bad, please do it! We will never get better if you keep your mouth shut. No one will light you on fire. No one will eat you alive. No one will cuss you out. If anyone shuns you when you give your opinion about the server, please direct a message to me on Discord because that is not who we are as a community. We accept all thoughts and ideas (unless you are a bigoted a-hat). If you look up at the top right of your screen you will see the comment button. This button will allow you to give feedback, to make a complaint, or to compliment us on our work. PLEASE USE IT! Otherwise NOTHING will change because no one said anything.
Staff are leaving left and right. There are many reasons why staff are leaving, but either way we need more players to apply. Toss up your application today! The worst thing that you will hear is a “no” and even then, we will help you understand what needs to be done so you can move forward. There are a lot of benefits to being staff and one of them is keeping this server you love afloat. I do plan on making modifications to the staffing application so y’all understand the standards, but that will occur after I have submitted my teaching project.
I have no clue where all my event staff went, but we are basically down to our staff members taking on these roles. We require more dedicated players to take on these positions. If you think you can host parties and have fun with players through various events, please apply today! You do not need to be an expert builder. You just need to be someone who has ideas for various fun events and someone who is willing to put in effort to make them successful. You won’t be doing this alone because you will have the entire staffing team backing you up, but we need people who have these amazing envisions to apply.
Once I have returned from my teaching exam, I plan on changing a lot of things on this server. I can’t speak about most of them right now because they have not been properly planned. I am just letting y’all know now so it isn’t a surprise later down the road. If anything, expect some good things to come to this community once I return.
In the meantime, please direct any questions, comments, or concerns to Queen_Mideva & SohpieScrumps. I have left them in charge in my leave of absence.
Love y’all and I will see you next week!
