Hello everyone, Voxton and I have recently made some new plans for the growth and redevelopment of Mouse Jocks, I will detail the recent and upcoming changes to the community here.
First off, we've moved the Teamspeak server to a Linux box. What's that mean? It means a majority of our users should have generally lower ping, and faster response times to the server. Our uptime should also be greatly improved and we have new tools to monitor our server activity. Along with those benefits, we have more control over the server and it's load output.
Moving to Linux has also cut some costs for us so hopefully we'll be able to bring some new things to light in the community.
Secondly, we're sad to say we have to remove the current divisions systems from our Teamspeak and website infrastructure. This means we'll have to move Engaged off of our resources as well as our other divisions we were working on bringing to the table. We're hopeful that we'll be able to bring back the division system by the start of June. Things should be working better as I'm currently re-writing all the code for our frameworks to work with our Linux nodes. As far as Engaged goes, we're not sure where we want to move in terms of our involvement with them as a division, we would love to support them further but we currently do not have the resources to do so.
Last but not least, we will be making more pushes to the redevelopment of our staff team. This also includes how we judge membership of the community. We have not discussed the terms on how a user becomes a member of Mouse Jocks other than being active on our servers and being registered on our website. Expect sometime soon to see more posts regarding the recruitment of certain areas of staff and how you could potentially join to contribute to our community. With that being said, all staff applications left under review will be nullified shortly. Along with community changes on the website, we will be looking to redesign the layout of our website to be more user-friendly and generally more appealing.
Thank you for reading,
Pwncode & Voxton
