New Moderation

Postby Matapiojo » Mon Jan 10, 2011 11:27 am

I am pleased to inform that the response from the community has been far greater than what I initially expected. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. It is good because I know I can count on a lot of you if things ever came to that, but it is bad because it made me make a few hard decisions I was not exactly ready to make.

So, this is how I'd like the new Team to look like, assuming all parties accept their roles...

New Global Mod(s)
    - Jwlynas
    - Megaraptor18
I had originally intended for there to be only one new Mod, but these two really stood out from the rest of the fine folks who showed interest. It seemed like almost everyone expected Jwlynas to be the new Mod, myself included, and there is a good reason for that. He is thoughtful, charismatic, fair, and most of all, integral to our little band of misfits. Hell, most of you already saw him as one even before he had a chance to voice his own oppinion. That is a great unspoken sign to me that he is the right choice by far.

That said, Mega is no slouch either. Not only is he as integral a cog in this machine as J, but he has actually helped the Team numerous times before in the form of unofficial moderation.

I am confident these two will be great addition to the color green.

Now for the trickier ones...

Piler Corner
    - John-117
    - Hitman H94

John is one of our oldest pilers, and Hitman has been selected by Admin himself to better FP as he has been given powers to post on the main site. Both of these guys have proven time and again that they are great pilers that have the interests of you all at heart, and thus they became the clear choices for the busy section that is the Piler Corner.

FactPilerverse
    - Swifterdeath
    - Xeno Dimentio

Swift is one of the more debate enthusiasts in the site, and taking care of the section that deals with debating tools and resources should be of relative ease to him. He will do this section proud.

Xeno is our newest addition to The Team, and we have the utmost confidence in his abilities.

Entertainment
    - DivineChaos88
    - Baron Somebody

Both of these guys have a ton of insight to bring to this section as I consider them to be well informed in a number of the areas within. They are also some of the older members of the topia, and it is well past their time to be sharing a bit of the load.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There you go.

It is important for everybody to remember that we are still a small community. Giving moderation powers to all that are interested is a bit unpractical. That does not mean that others did not deserve the right to prove their worth as moderators either. As the topia might grow, so will our mod needs, and all of you that have contacted me to express your desire to help have not gone unnoticed. In fact, you are the first people I will contact in case any of these folks are unable to meet up with the task, or decline their role.

Please feel free to discuss anything you wish to regarding the new roles.

I will be working on the administrative technicalities during the week, but I am awaiting their respective acceptance to their forum jobs first.

Then I would go to talks with the other forlks that showed interest and I think are good for the role the person declined.
