In parts of the world the leaves are turning and change is in the air, and what better way to celebrate than with some changes to the Staff team?

Up first, please welcome @Sandwhip in their new role as Server Mod! Sandwhip joined the site in late 2017, and was brought on as a Silver Star earlier this year. Sandwhip is a talented mapper, a kind voice in our community, a regular in our Discord voice channels, and is always willing to help out when they can. Because of these things and more, we're excited to bring them onto the moderation team. They're best known for their incredible maps Nuclide and Scarab!

Next, please help me congratulate now-former Server Mod @Erk on their promotion to Staff! Erk joined the site in 2016, and has been a Server Mod since 2018. Erk's best know around these parts for making Estate and Burner, but recently they've been hard at work as a member of the mod teams for Fallout: Cascadia and Fallout 4: New Vegas. Their talents don't end there either; erk runs Dog Bot (@doggorobo) on Twitter as well!

Finally, we're also promoting @14bit to the rank of Senior Staff! 14bit joined in 2014, became a Server Mod in 2017, and was promoted to Staff in 2018. 14bit has acted as a sort of face for the community for the past few years, creating videos to announce major contests, hosting this year's Microcontest events, and having streamed every 72hr event since 2015. We're excited to honor their hard work by bumping them up to Senior Staff. Notable maps of theirs include Guava Gulf and Waterlog!

Congrats to all three of you!

In addition to these promotions, we're looking to bring some more users onto the moderation team soon. If you're interested in applying, check out this thread:
