      Development and Road-Map for A3L   03/30/2017

      Community, After a few weeks of consideration I have made the decision to stop all updates other then Donation Updates for the time being. The reason for that is, we need to fix a lot of bugs and get things to a point where we can push major updates. Right now we have started a Road Map for everyone to keep track of this progress and where things are going in the community.   We currently have 4 phases to this update. Phase 1 - The plan with the first phase is literally to identify the problems. What I mean by that is literally Setup the route for the next few phases. IE we need to know what guns we use, what cars we are using, what buildings, ect. And then once we have a good idea about all of that we need to then plan what we want to use in the future. What we want to add and what we want to give up. After that has all been determined we move to Phase 2. Phase 2 - Once we have everything from the first phase we can then go through our 541 mods in our @A3L and simplify. What I mean by that is remove all the mods we aren't using and then merge some of the ones we are. Simple clean neat! After that we will work hard to fix ALL the bugs. I don't mean just a bug here and a bug there to put band-aids on the issue. I want it where when you join the server there is NO issues! Phase 3 - After all the bugs and kinks have been fixed we will then start the Development process, New Jobs, All new UI for everything to match, New Buildings, Medical System, Furniture for houses, Physical Items instead of virtual, and what everyone has been waiting for.... The new Map. And other things that will be listed on the road-map. Phase 4 - Then after all of that before we push the major update we will need to do a few things we haven't done in the past. Get IP (intellectual property) agreements with all devs who's 3rd party mods we have in our server. People ask why this is so important... Well the reason is so if someone reports us to bohemia we have an agreement stating we have permission to use said mod and even monitize while doing so. This is very important so people like you don't miss out on any content having to be removed due to permissions. Once we have the IP agreements then we need to give credits to all 3rd party mod makers. BIG KEY THING that we haven't done in a LONG time. Then we push a major update.   **Now remember during all this things in the road-map may change. We may add more into the cards or take away depending on the situation so make sure you are constantly checking our road-map to find out.** Road-Map: https://trello.com/b/eM04lzry/arma3life   Thank you,

      Teamspeak synced with the forums   07/31/2017

      Hello everyone, We have recently added a feature that will sync our forums to Teamspeak. This will add every tag that you have on the forums to Teamspeak. The only tags that won't be assigned will be command/police/ems, gang/business and other misc tags. You will have to contact a staff member for those. You can view a tutorial here on how to sync your Forums to Teamspeak. Thank @Heisen Beira-Mar for this.   We will give everyone 2 weeks to sync their Teamspeak before we wipe everything.
      If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Note: If your tags keep getting removed that is because you have a tag on the TS that is not on the website. You will have to get a staff member to check if you have all the correct website tags.

      Thanks,
      Spencer.

Arma 3 Life Official Rules

[Last updated 08/04/2017]

 

Chain Of Command

The role of the Project Lead is oversee all other staff roles. They are the general leaders of the community and are at the top of the chain of command.

The Project Manager is the general manager of the community. The project manager writes statements on behalf the senior staff team and has the final say along with project leads in all matters in the community when needed.  The Project Manager also works closely with the Development Team to help oversee development within the community.

The role of the Head Admins is to be the 'middle man' between the community and staff team to the upper project leaders/managers. One Head Admin will assume the role of EJO who is the head of ban appeals and the only one who can unban people that are banned permanently unless they were banned by a Project Manager or Project Lead.

The role of a Senior Admin is to oversee a small amount of staff and do reviews on their progress. A Senior Admin is also responsible for reviewing ban appeals that are posted for temporary bans. Senior Admins manage the user database by doing gang whitelisting, house and vehicle transfer requests on the forums.

The role of an Administrator at ArmA 3 Life is very varied. Admins will do the majority of bans but cannot unban. Admins also will approve or deny compensation requests on the forums as well as process name change requests. They will also handle members who require assistance in waiting for in game admin and are seen as trusted members of the community.

The role of a Moderator at ArmA 3 Life is very basic however incredibly important. Moderators have the first interaction with new members by reviewing civilian applications. Their job is also to filter player reports and deem with they are valid enough to be reviewed by an administrator. Moderators also assign tags to new members of the community and filter situations in waiting for in-game admin. Trial staff perform the same duties but are on a 2 week probation period to show they are capable.

The Support Team is the first people a new member will speak to in person. The main roles of the Support Team are to interview new members on the rules to ensure a high quality of role play and to assist existing members with technical problems. Senior Support manages their own Support members and are overseen by the Support Advisors.  The Support Advisors report directly to the Head of Staff.
