Hello hello, SpaceDeltans!
It's been almost a month since our release, and it's certainly been a hectic few weeks! The staff team and I have finally made a dent in our workload - adding patches and optimizations - and so it's about time to start our weekly-ish announcement newsletters.

| END NOTE
I'd like to extend a huge thanks to our staff members who have been working tirelessly on setting up and moderating the server. I've been nothing but impressed with their work ethic and handling of stressful situations.
Finally, thank you guys - the players - for working with us, giving us suggestions, reporting bugs and all. We'll be starting a marketing push shortly to get the server known within relevant demographics; thanks for your patience and we hope you continue to have fun on SpaceDelta!
