Season 5 Begins with a Bang!

Well, as the cheering dies down from the Emerald Clan Lounge, it’s time to get on and open up Season Five for business. smile.gif I’m certain that Ruby and Diamond are not going to let the wolves get this Season too, eh!

This Season has some great things to look forward to, some of which will be detailed in a moment. We ARE working on a major improvement for Maple Towers – one which will, I hope, not only provide a great service to our members, but also any player of MapleStory. smile.gif But there will be more information on this improvement later in the Season as we get ready to launch it. Clan members, keep your eyes open – great CP opportunities are coming up!

We will also be focusing a bit more on advertising this summer, as we’ve sort of let it fall by the wayside over the winter. Hopefully, this will bring more people and more activity to the site, as well as many great new members to add to our collection of awesome.

Speaking of awesome…

I want everyone to congratulate Light on becoming our next Super Moderator. He’s going to be helping us (me) out on projects this summer, but unfortunately this promotion means he will have to officially leave his beloved Diamond Clan. Diamond, this is the second SMod to be promoted out of your Clan…you should be proud! Light will still continue to serve as a Maple Director and this also means that Light will be another point of contact if anyone has any forum issues/questions so that you don’t have to bug Moofey all the time…although you should still bug Moofey anyway. I do!

Along with Light, we have some other promotions…everyone please congratulate Lugin and TheShinji on joining the Mod Squad. They will continue to serve in the fine tradition of taking care of the less than desirable posts and people that may find their way to our site. smile.gif

And a more sober moment…due to real life time constraints, Jinxiy has regrettably resigned from her post as Ruby Leader. She’s held the position for all four Seasons so far, our longest lasting Leader yet (it’s an exhausting position to hold!), and we’re really sad to see her go, but we understand that real life trumps all. We hope we still see you around, Lyndz, and we look forward to when you’ll have the time to hang out. smile.gif

It was a tough decision on choosing her replacement, as there are some very qualified Ruby members. The admins had a tough time of it! However, we’ve decided that SoullessFire will be taking the mantle as Ruby Clan Leader, and we have great hopes for his reign of terror. So everyone, three cheers for Kevin!

And congrats to all of our staff promotions.

Now for teams!

Contest Team had open applications a few weeks ago and I never got back to you on my decisions (mostly because I was waiting for end of Season).

Say hurrah to:
Shame
Icarus
AgonyMan
…and Light, too, since he technically would have gotten it if he didn’t get the promotion to SMod. YES, Light, I will give you the banner anyway…

All of our newly promoted people should have banners and permissions soon. smile.gif

But I said…teams? As in plural! Yes, my friends, we are releasing Graphics Team, which will be headed by our beloved Loose, and sort of co-lead by Analogue because it is her pet project. wink.gif

Please see the post in the Graphics Team Applications forum for more information, but here is just a sneak peak:

QUOTE (Loose)

// What?

The Graphics Team is made up of people that are awesome when it comes to making signatures, animations, drawings, icons, graphics, tags, whatever that is graphically viewable.

Those who succeed in gaining membership into the Graphics Team will have various non-compulsory duties. Those include:
  • Making the MapleTowers skin banner.
  • Making the 20 x 20 pixel MapleTower awards.
  • Making Graphics Tutorials.
  • Responding to signature and avatar requests (although non-graphics team members can also do this!)


GFX Team will have their own rank and their own bar:

Once again, congrats to our promotions! Good luck to all aspiring GFX Team members and of course, HAVE A GREAT SEASON FIVE EVERYONE!

I'd willingly give up my lunch period to learn math (yes, i'm a nerd) if we had a single decent math teacher in our school.
So, I go with the more individual route. The internet!

All the decent math teachers are hogged by underclassmen.
I had no idea that Math Team was a year long commitment, so here I am, starving to death everyday.

Congratulations on the promotions everyone. Every time we start a new season its begins to feel Mapletowers is revitalized. Thanks again for allowing me to be a super mod Lindsay, I'm sure I will be able to help you with any problem that you give me. Its just too bad that I had to leave Diamond.

Also, five banners.
