Anonymous suggested that players should vote to choose the top staff on the server, i.e. who should be Head Admin.
Ghost8797 wants to announce that Heroville 5 is closed while it is being built. No one should go to the town, as it will be trespassing if they do. He also states that his Empire is far from weak, as it can easily reopen towns.
Taybuy wishes that it be known that Hotel Holmes is being remodeled and will open in time for spring break! Anyone interested in opening a business in Holmesville should talk to Taybug. Taybug is also hosting a decorating festival soon.
Anonymous suggested that the newsletter be entirely about bh4. I'm guessing this was submitted by bh4. And bh4, you aren't a player, bro.
Gurl_345 submitted a quote! "When life gives you lemons, please do not make lemonade. (Because that's too cheesy)." -I.D.K.
ANSWERS TO PLAYERS' BURNING QUESTIONS FOR THE STAFF TEAM
MarsMoon1 asked "Who owns the server?"
Vicirator replied "Mars, you know that I know that you know who the owner is. But in case you forgot, It's Blox."
Anonymous asked "What day is today?"
Vicirator replied "Today is Saturday, February 28th of the year 2015."
Anonymous asked "Would it be possible for players to vote on the new Trial Mods or which staff should get Head Admin?"
Vicirator replied "It's unlikely that this will be implemented, as we have a very good structure in place to choose new staff. This process has been refined over the years and we've got it down to a science now, so we don't really want to mess that up. This is an interesting idea though. If you want, players could have a vote, and staff may consider this when making decisions regarding promotions, but I don't see it happening where players directly promote people by way of a vote."
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Which legendary players should be added to the new Hall of Fame? Answer in the comments below!
STAFF OF THE WEEK
This week's staff of the week is LordSupplicium! Lord solved a record number of griefs this week and brought justice to many players who were breaking the rules. In honor of this accomplishment, Lord has been named Staff of the Week this week.
FEATURED BUILD OF THE WEEK
The featured build this week is /warp HallofFame, built by bh4 and Vicirator.
That's all for this week's issue. If you want to submit a question, announcement, or something else fun for next week, write it down in a book and quill and throw it in a hopper at /warp News! We also appreciate any feedback you have for this first issue, including suggestions for new material that could be added, things that could be changed, or other comments or criticism you may have. Several things we were considering adding include a featured build of the week to showcase a cool build that a player on I-S made and/or a 'Staff Member of the Week' to commemorate an outstanding staff during the week. Thanks for reading!
