    Hi all.

    This is long overdue, but better late than never.

    In the past, we've had 2 "Community Managers" - Kai and Stiggy. They did a great job, but didn't really have the 'power' to change much. But they did well with what they had. One of the problems we faced was timezones, due to both of them living in the UK, which is unideal considering Chronet is primiarly a US player based community. Meaning when issues came up during US timezone, nobody was able to help. Stiggy has since resigned and we're in need of a new community manager. One that is based in the US.

    I'm not really one for job titles and such, the best way is often the simplest way. Which is why Chronet has never had 10 different types of admins and 5 Premium levels. Instead our staff levels have just been Trial Admin - Admin - Super Admin (Owner). I try not focus on somebody having more say over somebody else, since that usually creates ego based drama, arguing, etc. Instead, everyone should work together for a common goal, making Chronet a great community.

    Now is the time for that to happen. There have obviously been a lot of issues in Chronet, lots of them relating to me being inactive and seemingly disinterested owner. I once again apologise for that, and wish to mend my wrongs. I believe one of the weaknesses I had (although a strength too) was not giving 'power' to other staff, and therefore putting everything on my back. This has been a major problem within the community.

    So basically, better management is needed. Community Managers are needed. People that can be trusted to manage the community and have it's best interests at heart. Always striving to make Chronet better, even in times where all seems lost. As I mentioned above, I don't like putting people in boxes, so I'm not going to go on and list what a community manager can do and not do. Instead I leave that to the CMs and staff. Work together, involve one-another, do your best, be positive, and we WILL succeed. We'll be rebuilding and structuring the staff team to help with this, and to start with, I'd like to introduce a new Community Manager.

    I'd like to welcome Chance to the community management team. Along side Kai, I hope they can help the community get back on it's feet and involve everyone (players and staff) to help achieve this.

    I hope everyone can understand where I'm coming from, and hopefully we can all be on the same page with the way forward.

    I look forward to working with everyone to make Chronet great again!

    I think this only bettered the community. Kai has done a great job as community management but another one definitely was needed.

    I'm not gonna tag him to be annoying and I know others are gonna give him like 50 alerts from this thread, but if you read this, congrats Chance

    I'm glad to be working alongside Kai and thankful for the position, I understand a lot of people don't see me as serious or even trollish which is understandable it truly is but I assure you I have the means of taking up this position - this isn't my first rodeo and it certainly won't be my last, I've already been helping Kai out a bit and working on some of the major updates with Simple but even while doing this I can't promise to be the best but ill damn well try...so again thank you.

    Back when I was a normal player, I think the funniest times I had on Chronet was when Chance was on. Chance is the guy that brings the excitement and fun from the staff team to the server. Even though he may not be serious a lot of the time (no offense intended), he still makes it fun for most and that's just as important has making sure rules are being followed. I'm glad to see one of the older more dedicated members of the team make it. I think there's more options as well for future CMs, and I'm glad we're finally started to settle some things around here. Congratz to Chance, good luck.
