Notable Contributions to the Server
Due to his rank and responsibilities above. He is involved in literally all aspects of the server and therefore a part of everything that goes on. So here is a list of more notable and specific things.
Ryan found out about Patriam through Alex. The server was literally broken like scrambled eggs. So he came in and revised it using his many years of server management and configuration skills. That was the day that Patriam was truly born and has since developed into a lasting masterpiece. Due to his significant contributions to the overall continuity and progression of the server, he was offered 50% share of Patriam and its assets. Ryan and Alex have known each other for close to or even past 7 years now. Neither of them know anymore. They met through Minecraft and have been playing together in Minecraft for years. Ryan created whats called The Crew which is a small group of 5 people (including Ryan) who have known each other for at least 6 years, majority closing on 7 years. (If you look close enough at the Patriam Discord, you'll find a one of The Crew members lurking.) - For this very reason, it was not a difficult decision to bring me on and make Ryan partner in the Patriam adventure.
Ryan has since managed the Website pages (Portal, Forums, Ban Page, etc.), domain, Discord, Minecraft server, financials, and any integrations since. Its all history now and he only looks forward to the future alongside his longtime buddy Alex!
