    All joking aside, Asomath's analysis was not only entertaining to read but also spot on.

    I agree, that quote is extremely insightful :) Hoo-rah for The Prince

    Haha thank you. Its good to know I haven't gone insane yet ;) Either way though, our discussion on staff policy here is pointless unless it's taken on by the staff.

    PS @TDW thanks for the affirmation! ^_^

    So what happens now when the creator of the thread is banned?

    Just curious.

    I was more curious of the part why he was banned, didn't void just now the latest days (week) put out quite valid, and well-thought posts and threads around here? Perhaps a bit aggressive some of them, but not to the part where it would hurt anyone, he wasn't out to start any flaming or such.

    I have absolutely no intention of creating a discussion about the reason people get banned though, as we are far beyond that subject. It was more out of curiousity.

    This is getting off-topic. Please, discuss the real purpose of the thread :)

    P.S. In case you wonder, I have deleted the posts regarding takakenji, mine included.

    It’s alright. I believe he was banned for posting threads about the Hive's drama this past week. Keep in mind; this was right before ZT has ended, so his actions still violated ZT.

    At least that’s what I think.

    However, the purpose of this thread might be benefited if we knew the process for selecting staff currently. As far as I know, a recommendation and decision are made via Administrators (perhaps mod's) lobby, after which point the candidate is contacted and asked to answer a series of question. If the answers to these questions are sufficient, then the candidate is inducted.

    It’s possible that this process might have been circumvented these past few weeks due to necessity. I wouldn’t see a move to re-evaluate the most recent inductees when everything is stabilized as an aggressive move, but rather a wise one. Particularly if the process was cut short.

    @Pharaoh, thanks for the clean up ^_^

    If anything, I hope some of the remaining staff were able to pull some ideas out of this thread. Things they can use to improve the way things are run.

    Yeah I support this Idea we need more of them and that thing about being over 18 I am quite responeble and I am not near 18.

    He removed the over 18 thing because it was a silly notion.

    Anyways, we say we need more, but how do we prove that we need more. Clearly, the one of the purposes of these past few weeks was to create a concise staff system, but did they really take it a step too far in that direction or is it where they need to be. What positions aren't being filled atm?

    Y'know, until I had to.
