    Due to inactivity we have decided to drop both Ayla and Donnie from the Staff.

    Replacing both of them will be Misinko and Xeal.

    Feel free to come yell at me anytime you need something.

    I'm fairly active around here, so if I don't see a report right away, I'll definitely see a PM.

    Wow, that was unexpected. Anyway, congratulations for ya! It's a huge success to have this kind of position here! (I still dream about it, but still too low quality to act like this, lol). I wish you the best and goodluck with new destiny! ;)

    Just about the two most unlikely people to staff right here. Xeal, who half the time diesn't give a shit, and Misinko, who I don't think is the right kind of person for a role like this. It might be just my unpopular position, but neither of them are exactly fit for staffing here.

    I mean already we've cleaned up a "dox" thread and trashed some Necroposts. I'd say we make a fairly good team :p

    Xeal gives much more of a shit than you think. He's been working with me on building the XF2 iteration of SSRG for a couple of months now, as well as helping out with some of the planned restructuring. He works quite a bit behind the scenes and impressed enough people with how much heart he actually has for the place internally to earn a spot. Misinko, he's level-headed and he's good at keeping up with activities on the board, much like Clownacy. Names were thrown around on who to bump up with the reductions, and these two stuck well with the admin team, so here we are. You're still welcome to disagree, but some thought and discussion went into the decision. Plus, it helps both of these additions are younger in the community than most of us. I think we can all admit that we have a lot of older community folks on the staff, right? Need to bring in some new blood to help keep this place rolling forward.

    The amount of times I've heard from Xeal he doesn't give a shit about the community should give some indication as to why I made the comment. I have talked with you about what he does behind the scene and I do not disagree with that part.

    I won't lie, I have my doubts.

    But I'll be fair and play devil's advocate, I did have doubts about Clownacy, and he's proven me quite wrong, and he's done a sound job from what I can see.

    So I say, give em a shot! And if anything goes wrong, we can blame Spanner and LazloPsylus, and sacrifice them to the SSRG forum gods, I have my ritual tools ready >=3

    Hehe, indeed. I'm usually the sacrificial goat anyway.

    Baa.

    Another major factor that went in their favour is their location. It's no secret that the majority of the staff were based in the UK and that gave us very poor daily coverage in case of issues such as a certain spammer who shall not be named. We'll just have to see how it plays out, no decisions are ever set in stone but I'm quite sure that the arrangement will all work out better than you probably expect.

    The tag ran away when you got banned a few times. You could say it hopped back over the wall.

    A quick update: We're also sad to announce that redhotsonic is stepping down as well, due to personal matters. We wish him all the best.
