PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS | LILDIGIVERT

We're now a month and a half in, and I told y'all this summer would be a spicy one. Since we last spoke, the Digi/Huney Administration has launched 2 new departments, a postal service, Dua Lipa day, a country club, and so much more. In one and a half month, we have accomplished more than most administrations did in four. We aren't done, though. In the coming month, Huney and I are taking a larger look at the criminal RP side of the server, and determining how to best boost this side of the server. At the same time, we're planning more server-wide events! After the Olympics (where Redmont will win bigly!), expect to see MULTIPLE large scale event announcements.

As always, everything we've done has been with fun as the first thought. Huney and I want to make Redmont a more enjoyable place for all, and the fun is only just beginning!

Rumble, young man, rumble
Life is a trip, so sometimes, you gon' stumble
You gotta go through pain in order to become you
But once the world numbs you, you'll feel like it's only one you
Man, you got the power to do anything you want to
Until you ask yourself, "Is this what this all comes to?"
Looking at life through sunglasses and a sunroof
But do you have the power to get out from up under you?
F all these lames, F what everybody wants from you
They tryna Axl Rose you, welcome to the jungle
To be continued, we on that Norman Mailer quest
In search of the truth even if it goes through Prezi West
Tell him I’m the best!

Signed,

LilDigiVert
President of the Commonwealth of Redmont

Kycnn will help with the tickets discord tickets that are for evictions and managing eviction exemptions and any questions from new BI's. The Second Leadership position the DCT hired was the Urban Development Director. Nacholebraa was hired for this position and will focus on the districting initiative. The first district that Nacho will focus on will be China town as voted by the server. Nacho will also assist with DCT pastes to hopefully get these Tickets completed faster.

"I am not a crook" - Construction Secretary, Deadwax


Department of Health (DOH)

Achievements in July:

The biggest achievement we’ve made was definitely the release of the new disease plugin. I’ve updated every guide on the forums and every in-game hospital. I’ve also updated the DOH discord channel and moved every DOH related structure (Such as the Medical tent) to Reveille. We’ve worked with Taelor in order to make the health system work and everything seems to be working again now. Every command and new incoming changes have been updated, since the new plugin is very different (In terms of diseases and cures) from the old one.

Goals for August:
I’m going to release an activity check in the next days, so we can see who is really doing their job. I’m going to make sure every Doctor we have is properly active. I’m planning on making the Paramedic job a more known profession, and to do so, we’re going to have more people run the /EMT command. That’s our main goal. We’re also planning on accepting at least 2 more MS to the team. And we’re still working with Taelor to fix every bug and issue with new commands and features. I’m also working on bringing vaccines back, although it could still be a long process.


Department of Education & Commerce (DEC)

Achievements in July:

- Implemented an Economic Analysis channel for the Commerce Team to work with, meant to measure things such as national and per-industry GDP + track government spending on a day-by-day basis
- Revamped the chef plugin with foods now reflecting the sum of their parts and effects added relevant to the ingredients' real-life health benefits (istg if anyone says anything about carrots I'll scream, that's a WW2 myth)
- Re-implementation of repealed government grants
- Implemented an employee strike system which holds DEC employees accountable for breaking line with established Department Policy in a channel visible to leadership
- Re-worked DEC Department Policy, used it to take some power away from the Commerce Secretary and place it into employee hands such that no Commerce Secretary henceforth may run with unchecked power.
-Previously, the DEC Secretary's power was limited only by Department Policy which mostly did not exist.
- Currently, the DEC Secretary's power is limited by a clause within Policy that disallows any going forward from modifying said policy unless it negatively affects day-to-day operations of the Department
- Previously, decisions such as Department employment, Deputy Secretary pick, and Team Leader picks were exclusively made by the Secretary with the Department as a whole involved currently
- Established a legend for the brewer and chef recipes for any future employees to use such that there is parity and sensibility between all recipes. - Re-worked the chef guide to have all recipes, hunger points, and effects listed on the forums •Renamed Mercenary to Hunter for semantic reasons
- Reworked the Hunter guide to have more information and mob farm tutorials within it in order to provide a jump start to prospective hunters
