Single Status Update
As of today, it has been 5 years since I first joined the TruckersMP team as a Forum Moderator. It does not feel like it has been that long. I still remember applying for it, via a Google Form back then, thinking I'd probably never get chosen. Back then the team had only a handful of managers and was only about 50 people overall, with a lot less teams than we have now. It's weird looking back on the last few years, certainly had both ups and downs in that time. I started being active on the forums because of save editing, something that was very much a "new" thing back then - 2018 saw me finally publishing a guide on local only modding, something that had been thought impossible for years.
And then there's the impact on the team as a whole, being the first Team Leader / Manager of the Addon Team, close to 3 years ago now - a team I will always be proud of.
Things have changed a lot since I joined. Road to Simulation, Real Operations, new teams, bigger community, the list goes on. I wouldn't change any of it.
How far things have come, one of my first screenshots on TruckersMP on ATS, which is when I got my start in the community:
And here is a screenshot from one of my latest drives, on ETS2 (taken while waiting for someone to login):
*also got a new PC hence the screenshot quality difference - had it built in 2016, upgraded it myself late-2019/early-2020
