The path to Planet Partner status was carefully crafted with incremental achievements along a 15 year journey that began with trading, calculated investments, creating a real world business to specifically fund those investments (Virtualsense), and knowing when to make a move to acquire virtual real estate to further an even more measured path to making a difference for the communities we serve. To say that Ant has been a savvy business man in this virtual universe is an understatement.

As the Monria Team from Nov 26, 2015 to Aug 19, 2020 when we added Planet Toulan to our virtual family, we gave a dedicated focus on building a Monria community in the manner that would become a cohesive environment of players helping one another. We may be celebrating our 5 year anniversary as a team, but the four of us have been friends for almost the 15+ years that we have been in Entropia Universe, and as players, we have not only experienced a great deal, but we were always tuned in to what players were asking for, and what they needed, and we wanted to use those elements of importance to build our own community.

We are now using this same formula toward elevating our Toulan community as well, and it is coming along splendidly. We have many community member volunteers who are supporting our efforts in building another strong community who help each other, and Toulan and Monria are evolving into one expanding community that continues to amaze us. Our work, from both a development and community perspective is to deliver the best experiences possible, and this is something we want to continue doing in partnership with the community because we want to know what is important to you. We appreciate that you continue to post suggestions and give feedback, but also report bugs and glitches because we do pay attention, and these are things that require a dedicated focus in a timely manner.

As a result of something that occurred in the universe on Thursday (Nov 12th), I want to address some specifics so that the community has clarification. There was a brief discussion in Toulan chat about the Toulan shops and apartments and how they would be acquired once released. There was speculation and guessing going on, but as things progressed outside of the Toulan chat in private (as it was reported to me), it suddenly became a rumor and question as to whether a particular community member had inside information regarding how the shops and apartments would be acquired based on his comments in this discussion.

There are many volunteer community members that I work very closely with who are involved in one or more Community Initiative Programs (CIP), who work quite hard to support our efforts, and some even manage parts of the programs. However, this does not mean that they know anything more than any other community member. It bothers me that someone would even think that of us after we have spent 5 years together as a team building our reputation, and have done everything possible to make sure that everything is fair and above board, and that no one player or group have an advantage over others.

We have a lot of development in the works right now for both Monria and Toulan, and we want to give you as much as possible and as soon as possible, and because I know what's coming for both locations, I like to tease at times to let you know you have much to look forward to, but never have I ever told anyone, either publicly or privately, anything about the specifics of any development without an approval from Ant. We don't have control over how someone posts their speculation or guessing, so I am asking that if anyone has any question whatsoever about this sort of thing, to please contact me and I will set the record straight.

I can promise you that as a team, it is important for us that we have the trust of the community in knowing that we will be straight forward with you and that we will always do what is honorable and right. We take extra measures to insure that, and will continue to be open, honest and take pride in our integrity in doing so.

Success without integrity is failure ... we don't intend to fail. Integrity isn't being perfect, it's being authentic.

Here's to many more years not only as a team supporting our community, but a team in partnership with our community toward an evolving success story.

Thank you for your ongoing support ... you will always be our primary focus.
