The Dev Team has asked for me to put a post on behalf of the organization:
We’ve hit 800 in those who have upgraded to become Leaders .
Volunteers and Moderators are here to help make Empire Avenue fun. Admins and Moderators chat regularly with the Dev and Support team at Empire Avenue and continue to share what is practical, what is possible.
We sincerely, Board Directors and all, thank you, the entire community for being positive and helping move Empire Avenue forward through your activity, comments and support for new players. We also acknowledge the invaluable work that our Admins and Moderators and particularly our hard working Team Leaders group have done and will continue to do voluntarily! Thanks to the voluntary organizational work of our Admins and Moderators we have been extremely impressed with the metrics of our site through this Summer and we are looking forward to them continuing through the Winter!
The Summer of Fun and September activities were refreshing, energizing, and engaged both active and casual players. The data on activity, mission engagement and feedback, and revenue ALL show that these are positive for the site. People are here to have fun! What you’re doing is working. Keep it going.
The Team Leaders ROCK! Special thanks to the team leaders, volunteers, and community who have driven Summer of Fun (and now Fall) activities!
I, Sir Rudiger, can not claim all the credit for this NUTFABULOUS news from Dups: “The Summer of Fun and September activities were refreshing, energizing, and engaged both active and casual players. The data on activity, mission engagement and feedback, and revenue ALL show that these are positive for the site. People are here to have fun! What you’re doing is working. Keep it going.”
And, to the super-volunteers who have led so many events, including the amazing (e)NANCE who is always first to volunteer for everything from organizing events to recruiting volunteers and (e)EDUPRENEUR of [X]PendaPalooza fame along with [X]Bar and the army of volunteers who have helped on all the events. And, (e)DESDAUGHTER and all the#EAvGangstas for creating and managing the monthly Full Moon Event. I have had to use all my #SQRLPOWER to think of new silly moon missions each month.
