Yes, I finally decided to take the hints and make a few promotions! Plus a few other changes.
First up, Will and Speed freak have been de-modded since they are no longer active. Nothing against them, it's just because they are not here and using their powers. If they come back they can become mods again. Mike (Hoιγ Σiκe) has stated he's leaving, so he may be de-modded in the future if he doesn't come back. DT has been checking in occasionally and is apparently returning a bit more regularly so he stays a mod.
Secondly, I have given Editors kicking powers on chat. Remember: give warnings first and use it as a last resort.
Thirdly, I have promoted Ninja and Pokewatt to Moderator. They are very active long-standing members who can easily fill the gap left by trachy and Mewderator being busy for a while. Here is some Moderator info that should be useful including what you can do and how to do it.
Fourthly, I have promoted |SentByRavens|, FizzSwift~, Blobyolo and Hex to Editors. They will now be able to hide & show posts that break the rules, approve/reject posts requiring moderation and kick troublemakers from chat. Some helpful info here about approving/rejecting.
Congrats to the new recruits! As always if you have any questions just ask. Here is a little summary of our structure that I stole from Mew's post:
The last few in italic there are not very active anymore. So we have 7 mods (including me) and 4 active editors. I may add more editors is I decide we need them, but I think the people we have can handle everything at the moment.
