Staff Changes

Aaron's picture

Hi everyone

As you might have noticed there have been some changes recently in the staff. Notably both MLB and Fisk have taken the decision to step down, as they both feel they will no longer be active enough to fulfil their responsibilities. This was a decision they both took after discussing it with myself, and I want to publicly say a huge thank you to both of them for all their hard work and dedication to the server and community, as if it weren't for them we wouldn't have New Eden.

New Eden started because they dragged me into a Skype call last November with the desire to start a Minecraft server again, so it's only fitting that they have both been given the Founding Member title and Founder rank.

We have also seen a number of recent resignations from our Moderation Team, both DoomShadow and ElusiveEntity have stepped down as they feel they are to busy with other things to Moderate the server.

Fear not though! For though we have lost some key players, New Eden will not be disappearing, I will continue to lead the server and community, the only difference is I will have a shiny new Managing Admin title. This change is something I've been wanting to implement for some time, and now seemed like the most fitting. The idea behind it is that going as far back as Exodus this community has shown time and time again that it can outlast those who lead it. So in that spirit I wanted to make it easier for someone else to come in and take over the Owner (or now Managing Admin) position when the time comes that I must step aside. At the end of the day it's really just symbolic and won't change much of our operation.

On a final note I will be appointing new admins soon, although I will be doing so with great care, and I will appoint the people who I feel have shown the greatest commitment to this community and who share the same vision of New Eden going forward, that being the ideas that the server was founded on. Side note: this isn't an invitation for the inevitable PMs that I will likely receive from people wishing to be admin, I'll say it now if you do that I'm less likely to consider you.

So that's all from me for now, but expect some exciting changes, new features, and discussions to take place in the coming months.

Aaron

What happened to the community? I used to be able to join and there'd be people talking in chat but now when i join, no one is on anymore. It makes me sad that such an amazing community died down but hopefully it can recover from this decadence of players. Best wishes and good luck with your new position.

It seems to be a theme, like the same thing happened with previous servers we have run. Hopefully by increasing advertising and in-game content we can regain some of the levels of activity that New Edeb once had.

Some reasons it's died down is due to possible members who are in schools moving to a more loyal year, Years/Grades 10+ are very reliant on dedication of research and revision. There could be personal reasons, like with myself, recent events have made me move away but trying to get back despite what's happened...
