I have been offered the position of Community Manager. I have decided to accept this.
This may be unprecedented as previous Community Managers have been given the rank after being high up within the staff team, and obviously, I have not. The rank will only have the permissions necessary for the role and nothing of administrative nature outside of basic moderation of chat related stuff. I will not answer reports and will not resolve in-game situations. I will be able to deal with help requests but that is the extent.
I obviously have previously had a history of toxicity and this will not continue in any way, I already have realised toxicity is not the way to act on a Garry's Mod server and it is ridiculous. I will also as community manager try to rid the community of this toxic mindset and to try to encourage people to remember there is a difference between IC differences and OOC differences.
I have the opinion that the issue with the player base isn't old players getting bored and leaving but rather new players not sticking around. We have many new players join every day however we do not retain this and it is also going to be my focus to increase in the influx of new players. I have several plans to enact this and I have discussed this with the senior staff team. One such plan will be to create a server trailer, more information will follow regarding this however I intend to release details over the next week. Another idea is more roleplay events (example below), less of gun games and office raids (which of course will still happen occasionally) and more like the events seen yesterday. Events designed to encourage roleplay rather than turn the server into a death match for 15 minutes.
Any suggestions you have for the community please just DM me directly and I will do my best to implement if suitable.
