Welcome to the WinAdmins Version 2020.7 - the update with MOAR FREEDOMS!

As our community has grown, we have noticed the need to adjust things in order to keep the community welcoming and mutually beneficial. To streamline this and reduce the administration overhead of the server, we will be trying to condense all of the major changes into a monthly digest at the start of each month.

The following changes have been planned for this July and will be implemented within the next 24 - 48 hours.

First up, we are increasing the moderation level that determines users' abilities to join the server in an effort to reduce the risk of bots mass joining. If you have already joined the server before these changes are put into place, this should not impact you. Only new members who join after these changes have been implemented should be impacted. We have done limited testing and these changes seem to work as expected. That said, if this causes issues, we will remove or reduce the moderation level. Learn more about these requirements here:

With that in mind, the following changes have been planned for this July and will be enacted within the next 24 - 48 hours.

NITRO USERS

We wanted to come up with a way to make things a little more fun for our Nitro Boosters. We’ve unlocked some entertaining bot functions for them and will evaluate adding more in the future. Thanks again for your support by boosting this server!

Prepend each command with a hyphen to activate.

  • THROW - The throw command is open. You can randomly throw something at another user. Use: -throw @JordanTheITGuy [MVP]
  • TOPIC - Have a random topic asked in the channel. Use: -topic
  • WYR - Have a random would you rather question asked in the channel. Use: -wyr

Check them out and see what you think!
