    As some of you may have already figured out, we have four new administrators. These new promotions were set in place because we felt the admin system could use less strict organization, so expect your problems to be solved with much more haste than before.

    Please welcome our new admins!
    If you have any problems which requires an admin, please use the Admin Contact forum.

    This will be my last news post, as apparently I am not longer needed on this site. I wish future staff the best of luck, bye everyone!

    Grats 'n' shit. Good choices all four. A shame none of them are corrupt though, could always need an inside-man to share all the good gossip.

    Good job on clearing the thread.

    on topic: gratz and all, im still wondering was it really that wise to replace frank with Pyritie tho.

    But the other 3 are OK with me.

    Rant rave, sigh... (ignore this, this is not serious)
    I did not give you permission to edit my creative news post! How dare you... It took me 1-2 hours to spell check and proof read it and it was not offensive or even incorrectly spelt.

    Why did you let me waste 2 hours of my precious time making a news post that you just scrapped anyway and wrote yourself? Especially since I did mention it to you in the chatroom and you did not seem to have any problems with it. Sigh...
    Well lets hope they are more effective at adminitrating than I was!

    From what I heard in the chat, some people did perceive it as trolly, but we should stick to VM and PM's now before de-railing this topic.

    DSG is actually getting fired over this?
    It was a joke, just a little sarcasm. Jesus Christ how is that grounds for demotions? And DSG has been nothing but fiercely loyal and helpful to this site for as long as I have known him. In my opinion he was a bit deserving of the admin position, so it's understandable if he's a little upset. And about making this public, have you ever read the chat logs? Nothing stays secret. If you're able to so easily spit in his face and turn your back on him after all he's done, then I honestly fear for this site.

    This whole dramafest bullshit was rather funny at first, now it's just getting sad. This is just another overreaction like the whole Ghan_04 affair. You people need to calm down for once and try to look at problems rationally.

    It seems there was a serie of events that eventually caused his demotion.

    Umm did I miss anything?

    Come on, it was nice to have him around, He needed to move more often some threads for mapmaking into the editor forum but who cares. Too bad we won't see every single patch posted on the news anymore.

    the GF demotion is a bit meh for me, because I always saw him as the big daddy of the art ressources staff, but he will kepp that position inofficially for me :>
    but the promotion of the other 4 is something really great on the other hand. Things shall be fixed much faster and efficient from now on.

    Oh and I also want to say goodbye to shamanyouranus, who did some great work as a moderation for the models section. Good luck at college and I hope we will see you as active as before in a few months

    Everyone (who was here a few years ago) would do best in remembering that the director system was introduced because the administrator system had failed. Either way, I'll just sit idle for now and see how things turn out.
