    Some Forum Updates...


    Staff:


    The following inactive staff members have been dropped: DigitalXeron, iojnekns, Malevolence, Striker


    Armada and SonicVaan, the forum moderators, have also been dropped due to inactivity.


    New replacements: Ayla, SOTI


    I hope we can all give Ayla and SOTI a kind welcome to the staff team!


    Forums:


    The following forums have been removed/disabled: Archive, Non-English Discussion


    A few pinned topics in the Discussion forum have been dropped due to being irrelavant: Hacking Contest 2009,2010,Sofia


    IRC Chat link changed to forum discussion topic.


    Entrance Test has been dropped and replaced with a Trialist system set at 15 posts. All Site Access members moved to Trialists.


    This is the biggest change, we're going to see how this goes and hope that it gives everyone a chance to prove themselves on this forum. Stupid posts and posters will be dealt with immediately by the new, more active staff team.


    We're still working on more stuff on the main site, stay tuned!

    Oh man, Qjimbo all up in this b***h with some kick ass new members of staff to keep us all in place (as well as the noobs)


    All sounds good to me, glad to see the Forums are moving forward again!

    Wow, SOTI? Really?


    I'm getting serious deja vu here. I guess it's a good thing I don't have any immediate attachment to this place anymore.

    The updates seem to be nice, also, I agree with removing of the test because it was so easy (I know it without opening Google). And...


    Congratulations for becoming staff, SOTI and Ayla!

    I for one welcome our new overlords. It's great to see that the staff team has been refreshed to have active users engaging in changing things for this place. As for the warning system, it was something that needed to come back, just like the trialist system which was far better than the entrance test.

    What? I was staff? All I remember is that I moderated the Non-English Discussion. =P


    But yeah, congratulations to SOTI and Ayla and thanks to the slight changes, I guess.

    Excellent work. Also, welcome Ayla and SOTI. These new changes seem very solid too. The trial test is a good idea.
