  2. I totally agree, i've been friends with him for a while now, he certainly is a fantastic asset to the team
  3. @MrSirViking Staff who vote for themselves have their entire submission voided.
  4. Hang on, I didn't approve this....... oh wait, I did! Good luck to everyone listed, cant wait to see the results.
  5. @TurklerRS and @Zysto I think you are both missing the point. Although you both have a valid point about donating directly to the charity by choice, these sound like the words of those who haven't experienced the atmosphere of one of our fantastic charity events. Not saying you haven't attended any, just that you may have missed out on the atmospherics. Raising money together while doing something we all enjoy is something our planners put a lot of hard work into, many of the charity events are planned for months and then run over an extended period of time, usually a minimum of 24 hours; during which I have seen lifelong friendships, and even real life relationships form out of some of our events, you can't argue that's not something special. This said, I do think there needs to be some changed to the charity events sector of TMP, but i'll address Digital directly rather than post them here.
  6. With the birth of Haulage 64 nearly 4 and a half years ago back in 2015, my aim was to bring the community together and encourage others to produce fantastic events with the goal being to help other people, children, animals etc. through selfless donations and raising awareness of various causes. I'd say the community has done pretty well. Since August 2015, together we have raised £11,704.63 and the years isn't over yet! with CiN2018 from WTL just round the corner, I expect us to finish the year on at least £12,500. As far as the requirements go, I also had some input into this earlier this year, I think there does need to be some requirements and regulation into how we raise money as it reflects on the community as a whole when you look at the bigger picture. However, I think there becomes a point where regulations and requirement becomes excessive. When it comes to fundraising though, i agree that the method needs to be foolproof, and all donations go direct to the charity intended. Organising these types of event has become easier over the years, the first step is always the hardest and that's exactly what i took in 2015, but since then I have watched the community grow from 3 Charity events a year in 2015 to 10 in 2018. That's more than I expected. My experiences vary from event to event, I have helped plan and run a number of charity events and each one is different, I have had the pleasure of working with some great people (and some not so great) all with the same goal, and I think its great to see. I do think that the growth of charity events has also sparked and caused growth in community engagement, and personally, we don't do it for fame, but I don't think we are recognised enough. If you are interested in where I am getting my statistics from, I have kept track of it all: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1DGmcIQIkbkEUd4P-WtcqInStHMtT41i2s8XcXWK02Bo/edit?usp=sharing

      I do? Wait..... I do!! :P 

  8. @DJ Jefferz I'm not backseat moderating at all, i just think its a bit stupid that you're trying to argue your points....... there's a feedback system for a reason I'll say again though, I never read that the survey was, nor was intended to be anonymous
  9. @DJ Jefferz I think the best thing for you to do is quit while you think you're ahead. You know I conduct the TruckersMP survey towards the end of each year to find out who the communities favorites are, this too goes through a stage of data cleansing to filter out rogue information. It's just how surveys work. I know you think you mean well, but (and im being honest here) how truckersmp decide to carry out a survey has nothing to do with you since your not on the team anymore. The decision to use verification of the TMP profile means the team can verify that the users who have answered are current users, registered with the community, at no point did I read that this is an anonymous survey.
  10. Are you the organizer of Driver4Life?

  11. Although wouldn't need these options, I know many players that would benefit from the suggestions made, and possibly others that aren't listed. I think this would be a great addition to the mod and would show the community that truckersmp isn't a numbers game, but a mod team that cares. @EHHVTC I Ollie Great suggestion mate, certainly gets my +1.
  12. Alright, I'd like to clear up a misconception that's rolling about relating to the recent community success story.

     

    As event organisers, we are all grateful and appreciate the acknowledgment and recognition that is for many, overdue. However, the post has led to my name currently being in the light and receiving a lot of praise from you as a community, and as much as I am included in the achievements, I can and will not take all the credit for the achievements of my colleagues who all work equally as hard on their events. Please Go show them some love too
