GLD is a good pic. If possible it would be awesome to get MOG back on staff as well.

I wouldn't object to that either. (both what Noctis just said and what Belle suggested)

That sounds a lot like the staff reviews we started having after the issues with TLS's hosting. The last one we had was sometime around....March, if I recall correctly? And then before that, December?

I'm not sure what the time table was for these but the current review system we started seems to be what you're brainstorming. I figure the best thing to do would be to continue utilizing that, since we've come up with that idea already in the past.

I would really like it if Brooke were on staff, I think Mog should come back too tbh. But I know both of these people are very busy people. ='( Still though, they are great.

AND TONY!

Tifabelle.
YEAH. Kripey should be on staff because she isn't biased at all, she tells me all the time when I'm being a derp because she's RUDE.

Yeah I feel as if very little came from it. (and I think we all agreed that the first one was completely ignored and forgotten). A lot of things weren't even addressed by staff. Some staff never even replied. I think this would be a good way to get an accurate gauge on the community's feelings as a whole. It would be a better and fresher perspective on it.

I'm the master of copy pasta

1. Dacon. Wasn't he mod before? Why isn't he anymore? He strikes me as the kind of person who would be willing to tell it how it is, to be fair and willing to do the hard things, is personable enough on the forum to do these things without causing bad blood, open enough for a member to contact, and not the type to be overly secretive or give the vibe that he's in it for the mods rather than the members. He's a constant forum presence, and for the better imo.

2. Brooke: because everyone loves her and sometimes you need a person like that, someone who is great at mediating between two groups of people and is always looking to make other people's experience on the forum better. Didn't she win "most helpful member" award? That's awesome, especially for newer or shy members who might feel intimidated by the staff.

Also she did the "TLS Secret Santa" and yeah, it isn't the most difficult or complex contest, but it's tedious and time consuming and I know a lot of members who wouldn't be arsed or just mysteriously "disappear" during that time. If people are willing to take the initiative to start these projects for no reward- just to make the forum a more fun experience for everyone, yeah, they would make a great mod.

I agree with the feeling that the staff review(s) don't seem to have led to anything concrete happening. Voting would certainly change that, though I would worry about the potential for drama it would create.

One thing I mentioned during the last review, as well as my earlier post in this thread, was that there seem to be a lot of staff already. I've read through the discussion that led to the idea of adding a new member of staff, but nobody really mentioned there why it was needed, beyond helping to bridge the trust gap between staff and members. If that's the only reason, I have to say it feels like taking the easy way out. If there is genuinely too much work for the twelve existing moderators, fair enough. I know a lot of things happen behind the scenes that regular members never see.

I saw in another topic someone nominated me for staff... thanks but no thanks. I don't come here that often anymore anyway. Brooke and Tifabelle sound good though
