I just wanted to stop by to inform you all of the new changes we're making to the Advisor role as well as the way we're handling meetings from now on.
First things first, you probably noticed the fact that the color for the role has been changed from a sort of teal to pink, as we've always thought that advisor has been a little too similar to council in terms of shades.
On top of changing the colors, we've always thought that the obligations that came with the role seemed too ambiguous, so we've decided to change that up as well. With our new version of advisor, the people filling this role will be in charge of keeping the communication between staff and server at an all time high. Advisors will contact the operators and admins of each server more personally to get information regarding anything that each server needs to run more efficiently, brainstorming ideas and changes with staff as well as the operators to better the server, all while ensuring that staff get the information necessary to make these changes as fast as possible. Giving input on appeals and applications is to be expected of those with this role, as their connection to the community is held to a high standard and helps tremendously with the process.
In conjunction with these changes, we've also decided to change the way we handle meetings. Many of us have always felt that meetings happened way too regularly for a lot of meaningful things to be said from each server every single week. It seemed very repetitive. Therefore, we've decided to make meetings monthly, and they will be mainly used as a way for us as staff to communicate big announcements or changes that are being done to each server or the community as a whole. With that being said, attendance from Operators is mandatory unless specifically excused by the staff team (such as Extacy's situation). If you have any problems attending said meeting, please contact one of us to explain the issue. These meetings will now be held on the last Thursday of every month.
Lastly, I'd like to congratulate @Rage for becoming our newest advisor, the staff team and I are excited to see what great things he can do with this role
If you have any questions regarding these new changes, as I know it seems like quite the change, feel free to ask below!
Special thanks to @ proobs and @ Diam0ndz for helping with the brainstorming process
