Hi everyone, 
 
We will be hosting our next staff meeting on Mumble on Saturday, June 15th at 1pm EDT.
 
The primary objective of staff meetings is to both update staff on the state of the servers and recent changes, and encourage active communication both among the staff and with the entire player community. This also gives everyone a chance to pose the questions they've always wanted answered, and to discuss topics relevant to our community in a large group. At this particular meeting, we'll be discussing some of the new features on the servers and changes in our server tools (such as the forums). We'll also discuss some recently-written guides on how to more effectively handle particularly difficult aspects of moderating, such as xraying and PVP logging. Finally, we'll talk about how to broach the topic of advertising our servers to the world at large, and announce some upcoming events. All this and more! 
 
As always, everyone is invited to join and participate, both staff and non-staff. Initial discussion will be limited to mods and admins, but we'll open up the floor at the end to questions from players. All players and staff are welcome to PM the head admins ahead of time if there's a topic you'd like to discuss, especially if you won't be able to attend the meeting itself - we'll make sure your questions get answered. (You're welcome to talk to the head admins about issues anytime, not just staff meetings. Any of in-game/Mumble/IRC/forum PM/Reddit PM work!) These meetings generally run about 2 hours. 
 
Server admins: please be prepared to talk about recent (~last 3 months) and planned upcoming changes for your server.
 
Tech admins: please be prepared to talk about recent (~last 3 months) and planned upcoming changes to our server tools, commands, and infrastructure.
 
Mods: if you're available, please try to attend. If not, we'll post a recording of the meeting. 
 
Thanks!

Dig it. Provided my work schedule allows it, I'll be there.

 

Any way to add a link to this to the broadcast list for the next week? There's plenty of players that don't regularly check the forums, but I'm sure would be interested in this. 

 

EDIT: I'll be there.

Best of luck to you all. Sorry I won't be there, but I'm scheduled to be jumping out of a plane at the same time. (not even kidding)

Unfortunately, I'll be on a plane to San Francisco while the meeting is going on. I'll leave my input to the discussion with Barlimore and Cyotie.

I will be recording and I am sure others will be recording as well, so hopefully everyone can catch up with that. I also hope to take notes or have someone take notes that can be put up in a google doc.
