July 2021 Newsletter

Introduction

Welcome to the freedom month! July 4th means fireworks, celebrations, intoxication, and celebrating freedom! That of course, if you're american, but even if you're not, it's fun to party along! We are finally closing the first month of our brand new, automated site which has had great response so far, and getting into the HEAT of summer with some sizzling projects and exciting things in store. We don't stop working on cool stuff, ever, so lets hop into it! 


Project Outlook

We are deep in the middle of summer, and projects are going to start heating up. We just finished our 13 FPIU’s and hope to get them out soon. We are also starting on the K9 Pack, which we also hope to get out this month. Post that, we have the all mighty annual summer truck run to do, which I will post more details on. After that, we still have at least one, maybe 2 fire truck sets to do, and I'm going to remaster 2 packs. Ambitious goals, but will be worth it!

Discord Changes

There has been a good bit of revisions to the discord, since our new site, we have moved a lot of the “business” to the website and the discord has become more community focused, for fellow developers, and up and coming. Of course it still serves the purpose for showing our projects, providing support to clients, and a special area for them, it's just a small bit of tweaking. Here's a list.

  • Added “spice” to the categories with boom icons, to separate categories from channels and make it have more pizazz. 
  • Updated the #job-opportunities channel with neat buttons with links to position information, and the application for the position. Information category will be updated to suit each position accordingly.
  • Added a #pet-and-animals channel to post your pets and animals! 
  • Removed some unnecessary channels that aren't used right now.
  • Changed “Customers” to “Supporters” , something I wanted to do for a while, but just forgot.

Support Team Changes & Update

One thing to note, I have given some benefits to support team members, present and future. You will be able to get a permanent 10% Discount on all products  for being a part of the team, as long as you're active. Activity is checked often, I encourage you to apply! It's definitely a fun team to be a part of and now you get a cool discount!

 

We have also added a !thank [user] command, which allows you to thank the proper support team member, or member in general who helped you with a certain issue. You can thank someone once every hour and check how many thanks you have using the command !thankcheck .
