What is up ManicPS! Today we as a team will happily introduce you, The ManicPS Official News Paper. In this newspaper we're going to highlight recent events in ManicPS and provide you with information about recent changes. We will launch this as a biweekly action on the forums, but will surely make it weekly if there is more demand. Our team is working their best effort to produce this paper on time and strive for this newspaper to be amazing read every time we post it. Hopefully you enjoy the first one, since there is many more to come!
Hey Manic people! So this Newspapers staff updates aren't the greatest (judging by the amount) nor the smallest (meanings). Why so might you be asking? Well, because we created and implented our new and spectacular (if i may say) NEWS TEAM.
We got a few sexy staff updates, which are:
Did not get a promotion, but got one more responsibility, Starting the News Team as one of the News Team managers. Logitec has been working well on forums for quite a while, and this was definitely deserved!
Did not get a promotion, only one more title, one of the News Team editors
Expanded his forum responsibilities from Forum Moderator to Forums Moderator, News Team manager and Editor
Joined the forum team as one of the most crucial parts of the News Team, gaining the task of Chief Editor and gfx artist
This boy went from player, to a catchy News Team report and editor
He has done a wonderful job in-game By dedicating his free-time to help in-game and being an amazing person. Sogn got very recently promoted to helper, which is very well deserved. We as a News team want to wish you the best of luck with your new and important responsibility!
Hoeninja has been helping in-game for a long time already, and with that said he very well deserved his position as a Helper. Hoeninja is very valuable asset to the team, and we as a News team want to wish you the best of luck with your new and important responsibility!
Dave has been dedicating hours after hours helping whoever was in need of help. He has been very helpful and active member of the community for quite some time, and thats why he got gifted his Helper rank! We as a News team want to wish you the best of luck with your new and important responsibility!
Then we sadly have few demotions. Most of these people were demoted because of their inactivity, and we are sure going to miss them, and hope to see them once again logging into Manic.

The first ever interviewed person in the brand new News Paper is our much loved Administrator @albinokiwi! Our News team designed those questions specifically for him, and he answered them with passion. If you want to see someone being interviewed, feel free to suggest any name you want, and we will happily make it happen! How did you find out Manic ?
Pretty lame answer honestly, but I was looking for an older-looking server quite a while ago, and I found it on one of the top lists. Tried it out, got a couple really nice people that helped me out with some basic stuff, and got hooked.
What is your favorite Manic moment ?
Hmmmm. I’ve got a couple: one a few weeks long and one a specific moment. First, probably the first two weeks on my Ironman. I started it right after the update first went live and having worked on the update myself it was fun to do the initial racing with others. One specific moment? Getting the first glorious sacri kit when behemoth came out.
Do you have any goals within Manic you want to achieve ?
As boring as this sounds: max gear. Specifically silenced sigil on the main atm, and my first sacrificial kit on my Ironman atm.
If there was one thing on Manic you could change, what would that be ?
GPU renderer on the client. I’d leave both render styles for those who truly want the older look, but I do want the option for an OpenGL client.
What is your daily motivation to keep working and helping Manic grow ?
Hmmm... I enjoy the grind, and it’s kind of gotten to the point of “i've been here for so long, can’t stop now”
Whats your motivational phrase ?
Hmmm... Honestly life’s not the best right now, so I’ll go with “take it day by day”.
Is there anything you'd like to add or let everyone know ?
Stay in drugs, don’t do school. /s
