  • Development of policies and rosters in maintaining LVP Radio, and ensuring that people who want to stream, are able to stream.
  • Ensuring that LVP Radio stays fresh and innovative —healthy mix of music styles, listening to and responding to player feedback, advertisements.


What does that mean for you?

Not much will change besides you knowing whom to go to with certain issues. Best will stay to create a ticket on discord or a topic on the forums. If needed an administrator can always redirect this to the respective manager.

- You have an issue with another player or crew member?
You'll first try and talk it out with said person. If this does not bear any fruit then you can either create a topic in the Complaints section, create a new ticket on Discord or messaging the respective manager.

- You want to host a cool event on LVP?
Feel free to do so, if you're not sure about it or need some help you can either create a topic on the forums, create a new ticket on discord or contact the marketing manager.

- You would like to make the LVP radio happen again?
Feel free to create a ticket on discord or open a topic on the forums. We'll see what we can do from there.

- You have an issue with one of the specific managers?
As always, you should first try to resolve this with the person yourself. If this is not working out you can always create a ticket and mention that you request to be helped out by somebody else.
