We would like to announce that the community is no longer owned by Opis Group, we have separated ways with that company and will no longer allow the community to be owned by a company and their members which barely have any knowledge about the game that we play, other than it’s going to earn them a paycheck, we wanted the community to be owned by someone with experience, who has been here longer than most players, someone who can be trusted and has proven themselves to the community time and time again.
We are glad to announce that George Macon is the President and CEO of Opis Gaming LLC. Considering George as CEO we would also like to announce more structured titles for the rest of his fellow executives, Cornelius Miller is now effectively the COO (Chief Operating Officer) in charge of all Business and Server Operations and Ryan Finase who is now effectively the CDO (Chief Development Officer) in charge of all Business and Server Development.
Below is the official announcement forum-post by George Macon regarding this change:
Well folks, I can finally have a serious post that isn’t about something bad. Ever since Pryor’s departure from the community the question of who owns the community has been tossed around for months now. Us Executives would like to apologize for this as because of the immediateness of Pryor’s departure we had been unsure the legality of continuing on our own.
After a busy holiday season, I would like to announce that we will no longer allow for our community to be owned by someone who is not working for the best interests for the community, we will no longer allow the community to be owned by someone who doesn’t know what SA:MP is other than its going to earn him a paycheck, we want the community to be owned by someone who has been here for many years, longer than most players, someone who can be trusted and has proven themselves to the community time and time again. I’m gonna stop tooting my own horn here but I am glad to announce that I am the President and CEO of Opis Gaming LLC. I am learning many a new things about operating a business including business taxes being quite expensive! but I can genuinely say I am glad to be a part of something so great that I have seen grow from the little 15 player samp server of the past.
Considering myself as CEO I would also like to announce more structured titles for the rest of my fellow executives, @Cornelius_Miller is now effectively our COO (Chief Operating Officer) in charge of all Business and Server Operations, as of today I am stepping down as Head of Development and passing the title to @Ryan_Finase, who is now effectively our CDO (Chief Development Officer) in charge of all Business and Server Development. We believe that with the help of our community we can continue to grow and develop into something better than what we’ve seen before. This isn’t going to be a locked post and you are welcome to ask any questions you may have, we are ready to usher in a new era of gaming under Opis Gaming!
