We usually open the Community Manager applications every 6 - 12 months, depending on the amount of likely candidates and the current need for new team members. We're currently not planning to open them in the near future!

We have been looking into the possibility of switching over to discord for a while now but we haven't quite made the commitment yet. You can expect to hear some news about this at some point in the near future, but for now we're still holding staff meetings, trainings, etc. on teamspeak!

We do indeed have plans for new servers to be released in the near future. These plans will not affect our efforts to support the existing servers negatively. I can't really tell you more about these plans for now, but you should definitely keep an eye on the forums to stay in the loop!

1 - What is the community teams current plan to boost the player count(s), as it seems the player count(s) across the board have been pretty low I’m sure discussions have been happening about it and if not them maybe now is the time?

2- Would possibly bringing back community council be on the community team’s mind to help get ideas flowing, help address more problems across all servers?

We are constantly working on improving the standing of our servers by adding new content and working together with the lead teams to identify reasons why players might lose interest. One of our biggest focus points now is to make the servers more appealing to new players by eg. making SSRP newbie-friendly and reducing the size of our content downloads on Pointshop. In addition to these content-based changes we're also working on some internal plans to make our servers more appealing! If you have any more input / ideas on this topic, feel free to talk to any Community Team member on teamspeak / discord.

The Community Council was a good idea at first, but after running it for a couple of months we've realized that it's not as effective as we hoped it to be. Although it was meant to represent the entire community, most of the members were focused on SSRP - there was almost no representation for Pointshop. The work on the Community Council shrunk further and further over time and eventually got transferred to the individual lead teams on each server. We don't have any plans to re-introduce the Community Council in it's former state.

We've introduced the roadmap earlier this year as an attempt at improving our communication and transparency regarding updates. After a few months we've slowly realized quite a few flaws with this approach. A roadmap system locks the development team into "hard" schedules and gives us less flexibility overall. It's harder than you might think to plan out most of the content updates over a whole year without promising too much or accidentally promising a feature that might get scrapped later on due to community feedback / a better idea. Given the fact that most of the developers working on these updates are exclusively working on them in their free time it's also not that easy to put a hard date / date range on updates. We've determined that a roadmap is not the right concept for us. It might be a great thing for a big development studio, but it just doesn't work for us.

We are however still looking into ways to improve our transparency towards updates by posting update sneak peaks on the forums / on discord, hosting Pointshop Meetings to give the community more say in the upcoming content and posting more announcements through our new in-game news system across the whole community!

In previous Community Team Meeting Outcomes, you guys have been hinting at new server(s) being in development. I'm curious as to why, fundamentally creating new servers is the approach you guys are taking when I feel there would be more success in an approach of focusing all attention on current servers and projects rather than spreading your resources. I understand it's a good way to gauge potential and work ethic of future CM prospects, but I feel you could also gauge that via developing current servers rather than making new ones.

Thanks!

Is there any chance that the new servers that you will be releasing in the near future as you mentioned will include Jailbreak?

We are fully aware of the current state of murder and we do have some plans in motion to try and improve it's standing. For now, I can't really tell you more tho since we're still actively working on this possible solution. Stay tuned!

We are indeed actively working on new servers - however this doesn't mean we will put less effort into the work on our existing servers. Working on new servers (both in terms of development and general planning) is mostly done by the future Server Owners. We are mostly there to support them if they have major issues and guide them in their decisions. The Community Team and the other Server Owners still have a lot of time to focus on improving their existing servers. Rest assured, we have great plans for SSRP and the Pointshop Servers!

We're not quite ready to share our plans for any new servers just yet. Make sure to keep an eye out on the forums for announcements throughout the next weeks! ;)
