August 2021 Newsletter

August 2nd, 2021


Redneck Modifications LLC


Introduction


Already into August! Fall will be falling (badum-tss) upon us before we know it, and massive amounts of cool new stuff as well. This month we have been hard at work with paperwork mainly, which pushed back a lot of projects but it will be worth it! Lots of cool stuff in the works that aren't just products, so let's get into it! 


Project Outlook


The K9 Pack is underway & I should have pictures to post soon. As our engineering folks get back from their summer break, you will see a lot more progress with the firetruck as well. The remastered packs of the Valor & RX packs should be coming down the pipe soon as well, which shortly I will be restructuring how I do packs, :eyes:. 


Launch of the Community Reddit!


Since we had a lot of cool new faces come onto our team, its given us a bigger outlook on new ways to increase our reach with our community and give people different outlets to showcase their work, or products they bought from us. 

You will have the ability to post your ingame screenshots of our products on our sub-reddit, and get a chance of being posted on our social media pages! We will also be exclusively picking 3 submissions each month from the sub-reddit of photos we think look the best and showcase our products in great ways, and we will be giving those 3 individuals all 50$ Store gift cards!

We look forward to seeing your submissions!


Regarding the Community Developer role.


For so long, I have been messaged endlessly about the Community Developer role and how to obtain it in our discord. I’ve decided to implement a monthly system, where during the month I will pick out up and coming or seasoned developers that I think are active & creating cool unique stuff, no matter what it is! So every month you will see new droves of people with the community developer role. I will also be going through monthly and purging any people that have become inactive in the community.

Team Changes & Updates

 

After legit months, we finally got the time to go thru the endless amount of applications submitted to our divisions. You should have gotten a response in your DM’s regarding your application.

You will notice we have made some design tweaks and question changes on our applications to improve efficiency and clarity of the position and the questions themself. Thank you for all of the feedback over the months to help us improve our application process!

Thanks to your endless support and growth,, we have decided to raise our base pay to $11.00 USD per hour. We will also be implementing tiers within the division for people to work toward, which of course will entail higher pay and more benefits. We will have official documentation coming out in the near future regarding these changes as well.

Current division application statuses are as followed-

 

MARKETING DIVISION - CLOSED

 

ENGINEERING DIVISION - OPEN

 

GRAPHICAL DIVISION - OPEN

 

TECHNICAL DIVISION - OPEN 


Applications can be found in our #job-opprotunities channel in our discord.
