The Staff...

Post by Cameron Klym » Sun Oct 06, 2013 6:44 am

I would just like to say a very big THANK YOU, to the Avlis Staff (both past and present), who have all done so much to make it possible for all us Players to continue having fun!

On a more personal level I am very grateful for the recent KOOL addition ( not to mention all the rest of the KOOL stuff ), from you people. I wish I could do more then just using words, but they are all I have. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!!

Thank you QA for all the time you spend breaking our stuff, its a thankless task, yet, because of your efforts, Avlis has more and more awesome systems and code, and things, pass all the time into thw world.. for your efforts.

Thank you CCC, for making the things to be broken. and fixing the things that need fixing, and of course, added, and growing not only our in game world, but how we play.. how we interact. Its inspiring..

Thank you to my DMs that give their play time to entertain our player base, and provide the unique opportunities of live Roleplay interaction with the world.. one of the many things that makes Avlis almost Unique.

Thank you to all the people that are administration and all that goes with it. There is no glory in it, but Thanks.. I really appreciate it.

Thank you to all the people that wear more then one of these hats.

I am with you there Pleth. So very big and heartfelt thank you to all of you behind the scenes; in the often overlooked,overworked and probably not thanked very often QA, CCC Admins and so forth. Doing everything you do to try to help Avlis keep growing and developing.

Admin totally blows my mind with their abilities to be there so quick when needed.

The CCCC team is increadible.

I am sorry that I don't get to play with all the DM"s except from the second hand gold I get from other player's stories and the DM"s I do get to play with are awesome because I know they have to do so much to make it work.... and then we players throw a total wrench in their well laid plans- a gnomish wrench.

The QA team seems terribly tiny sometimes and I am always amazed at how there is always someone to jump in and pick up where one of us had to leave off and sometimes how we manage to get more then one person on in QA at the same time for some of the things feels like a miracle.

The QA folks we do have do amazing work, and we'd be lost without them. I'll rave them any day, along with the rest of the team! :good:

Everything you see IG has to pass QA testing, because we do make mistakes (boy do I make mistakes sometimes). They ensure everything works, or Avlis would be a mess of live bugs (we already have enough of those to fix). :roll:

*hijacks the rave to advertise shamelessly, before fleeing*
So if you have no experience with the toolset, or no interest in being a DM ATM, you can still help Avlis quite a bit by sending in an application to help test QA stuff. You should be familiar with how to play on Avlis (how IG stuff works and so on), but it doesn't take much more than that as a skill set. We are one big family here, so as long as you can work with others and like to help, why not give it a try? :wink:

Check out the Avlis Needs You! topic for more info on that, or any other stuff! :jump:

Between Krackq working on his birthday to help save us from forum spam to other team members checking in while at gen con or on other trips to dms running events through bugs and weird tech problems to Hamlet who I still swears does not sleep, our team rules and I'm delighted and honored to work with you.

hat's off to a wild and busy week (again) - thank you for all you do! :cooler: :sauf: :liebhab:

This deserves a bump!

Thanks to everyone who volunteers their time and energy to continue to keep Avlis going, squash bugs, develop new content, QA, Maintain Redmine, the website, pay for the infrastructure, and tell more stories.

Avlis has been blessed with a lot of good people and especially those that keep things going from behind the curtain doing all that QA and CCC stuff and more. So thank you all very much!

Big shoutout to the CCC for the new stuff they continue to work on. Bugs happen, but despite being a volunteer force, you guys were on that fast. I've seen people paid work half as hard!

We all appreciate everything you do. Thank you!

Thanks for the quick help identifying the issue and helping me to test it so we could figure out what was going on.

And thanks to everyone for being understanding - we try our best but sometimes these things slip through (and most of the time they're my fault :oops: ). I know it sucks when your gameplay is affected, especially on a weekend.
