All servers are temporarily closing down in 30 minutes to move over the databases from the old Summit/Valley server to the new server. This shouldn’t take long, but since there can be unexpected issues we cannot give an ETA. As soon as Meadow and Atoll are back up we will begin moving Summit, Valley, and lobby to their new server – so they will be down for longer. We apologize for the short notice, we decided to do this as soon as we could because of the high player counts.
Shack’s 3 year anniversary of being on the staff team is fast approaching! His anniversary of joining the team is in four days, and he’s been an admin for just 3 months less than that. During his time as admin, he has helped the server and the team immensely—but there is a limit to how much you can do as an admin. Some things require more access than admins currently have. Most of these things require access to the main account these services are managed from, and I am not comfortable giving all admins access to that. This is why I will be promoting Shack to co-owner! With this change, he will be able to help out with the server more and overall make things run more smoothly through his expertise.
Shack will be able to help me with the things that usually go unnoticed, such as setting up a new server or editing a voting page. With 4 servers and an ever-growing community, I need some help to keep everything going smoothly. I’ve already gotten a lot of help from a management perspective from Josh, but Shack will be helping me with the more technical part of Altitude. I’m not stepping away from Altitude in the slightest—I’ll still be here the same amount—but some days the number of things I need to do can be overwhelming and with Shack’s help I hope we’ll be better equipped for that. Thank you for continuing to play on Altitude, and congratulate Shack if you see him!
The community goal we started has been reached and I’ve ordered the server. Sadly some parts are out of stock so we won’t be able to upgrade right away but as soon as it’s delivered I’ll start work on it. For now, everyone can enjoy the 25% sale for the next 24 hours!
The event team are opening event team applications in order to grow the team with enthusiastic and talented builders. Event team members work together to design and develop unique events for the server, and we hope that you can help us in that process!
It is important to note that joining events will not help you in any applications as moderators as they are unrelated roles.
We ask of the following of our applicants:
- Shows maturity and is 15+ years of age,
- Plays an average of 7 hours a week on Altitude,
- Is friendly and enthusiastic to maintain our events to a high standard.
Applications will stay open for a week. To apply go to https://alttd.typeform.com/to/Hnt6ra
As many of you know the physical server Atoll and Meadow are on has been upgraded, the one Summit and Valley are on is still the same. I want to upgrade these but especially the initial costs aren’t cheap. That’s why I’ve decided to add a temporary Community Goal in the donation store. When it’s reached it will start a 25% sale for 24 hours as a thank you and a small celebration. Altitude would not be possible without the donations from our donors, thank you everyone!
That concludes the fishing event for this year, thanks to everyone who participated! In order to collect your prize, go to valley and /kit (kitname), make sure to have enough space in your inventory. These kits will be available to redeem for the next week so please make sure that you don’t miss out on your goodies.
Congrats to our bonus winners who also received some keys for catching the largest fish: 1st- JoIsAwesome 2nd – TIKLucas 3rd – claire0blood.
Hello everyone! We’re holding our annual fishing event this weekend on February 29th at 9pm UTC where you’ll be able to catch unique and exciting fish! You can upgrade your rod to improve your catches and buy your prizes during the event. It will start at 9pm but you can join after that time if you’d like to do some casual fishing. We hope to see you there!
Hey everyone, we just want to clarify some things relating to the discussions that were held in #help and #off-topic a little bit ago. Altitude invites everyone to express their sexual orientations, including in the form of nicknames. Our goal is to make and keep the community welcome and safe for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation. We strive to protect our community members, and this naturally includes those who are a part of the LGBTQ+ community. We want to make sure they feel and will continue to feel welcome, without having to worry about being ashamed of who they are. If you have any concerns that you are being targeted by others on Altitude because of your sexuality/gender identity, please contact a staff member. Your safety and comfort is our priority!
Meadow, Atoll, and Creative will be temporarily down some time tomorrow to move them over to the new server. There will be a 5 minute warning before they go down and if there is an ETA it will be on our twitter page.
It’s Valentine’s Day! The perfect opportunity to buy something for that special someone. But don’t worry if you don’t have someone in mind because you can still use this sale on yourself! The 25% sale starts now and will end Sunday, midnight UTC.
