A Community Update

A message from Ezilii

Dear Community,

On December 4th at or before Midnight, I, Ezilii, the founder of TheCrewRp, will turn over the management and possession of TheCrewRp Community to my successor Mr_Grey. It is my last wish that you support him as you’ve supported me. 

I have more to say, some words of wisdom, but I’ll save you the tissues. 

Thank you for being a part of my journey and TheCrewRp.

It was a pleasure. I leave you in good hands. 

Stay hungry. Stay foolish,

Ezilii 
 



A message from Mr_Grey

Hello there!

I am mr_grey and I will be taking over Community Leadership here on theCrew RP.  I hope you all will come along with us as we transition into a new structure (outlined below). 

You’ll notice there aren’t names yet attached to these roles other than mine. This is because in the coming days and weeks, we want to give the player base the opportunity to pick among themselves to suggest names for Team Lead for their groups. It is my hope that we all pick members we as players trust, can depend on, and are capable and willing to be in the role of Team Lead.

I know this is a shock to a lot of us. I know that we’ve been lingering in a bit of a patch. I want to say to you all clearly: I am here because I love theCrewRP. There is nothing in my heart but admiration and respect for all the players who have given their time, effort, and skills in their pursuit of entertaining and compelling RP.  Thank you, dear friends, for the excellent foundation.

There’s a lot to read below, and a lot of discussions will be had. This plan isn’t final. My DMs are open. The positions of Directors will be announced, as will the rest moving forward. Know this--we all have a place here and we all have a voice. I sincerely hope you will consider this plan, join in the project as we move forward, and bring your unique talents and skills to this server.


Thank you,

mr_grey
