Quick reminder that the vote for keeping/removing the chainsaw ends in in around 14 hours.
To vote, donators can go into the bank and use the voting booth in the back office.
Update: Voting has ended, "Remove chainsaw" received 44 votes while "Keep chainsaw" received 34. We'll be removing the chainsaw shortly. This will be followed in the not too distant future by another adjustment which makes things a bit more fair for non-donators.
Thanks to all who made their voice heard.

Just going to jump straight into this, we've got some Easter event results and some new updates.
First of all, the updates:
Players can vote on server changes from within any bank (check the glass office at the back). We won't always have a vote active and not all votes will be binding - but we'll try our best.
I've hidden some pickups around the map, nothing big but should help people when they're stranded and need some health fast.
New interiors have been added to ammunations, these have been picked to reflect the external building a little better.
Login error (E2):
I think this has finally been fixed now (hooray), if it comes back, the message has been updated to give some more info.
Anticheat now has a couple more detections to make things harder for cheaters.
Server can now detect if the player is using the wrong sa-mp client and can show them which one to use.
This year we had 10,745 eggs collected by 198 players. This is an increase on the 4,579 eggs collected by 184 people last year.
Amazingly, 36 of these players found all 200 hidden eggs, each of them have been given 2 tokens to spend on what they please.
We hope you enjoyed the event and the new updates,

Hope you're enjoying the easter event, we'll be concluding that in the next few days so now is your last chance to get some eggs. We're just pushing a small update today to help with some of the balancing complaints we've had over the last few months.
From today, you'll be able to type /op every 90 seconds which will give your class more advantages while removing them from the opposing team. For example, buffed criminals means cheaper weapons and a much reduced tazer range. Overpowered cops increase the cost of things, reduce the robbery range and reduce the amount you can steal from robberies.
The more people who type /op, the more overpowered your class will become. Watch out though, if a cop types this command, it'll reduce the power of robbers and vice versa.
We always get complaints that picking a random number from 0-450 means that the lottery isn't won very often. We hear you. From today, the number that the lottery is drawn from has been greatly reduced to just 15 IDs. We hope this will mean more winners.
We hope to have more updates for you soon, hope these small changes will help keep things balanced for now.
Edit: We've found a slight bug with vehicle horns, we're looking into this as a top priority.

Easter has rolled around again! The Easter bunny has hidden 140 eggs across the map. Hunt them down and then type /egg while close to "collect" it.
You can check your progress (or anyone elses progress) in /sts.
Depending on progress, we may add some clues in the coming days...
For the duration of the event, /hidetiki is also available to all regular players.
Happy Easter from all of us at SACNR!

At the end of the current game month, I'll be taking the server offline while we move the some services to the new hardware. This is to ensure that stats are safe and nothing is lost during the move. Instead of having some downtime tonight and some more over the weekend, I'm aiming to do it in one big block to minimise interruptions.
I'll try to get the website moved first in order to continue sharing status updates as we go.
Comms server (IRC, Teamspeak)
Misc sites server
Update 23/02/17: What a load of arse that was, Got some moved over, will do some more over the weekend.
Update 24/02/17: The main moves have been done now - just a couple of bits to move tomorrow, no more downtime though :)
