Post Changes in staff structure
Hi, guys.

We have some changes in staff and its organization.

Fist of all, The lost Ninja became even more busy in privacy, that expected, so he had to retire from track-restoring task (Thank you, TLN, for your work. :up: ). He is replaced by LongBow, who hopefully will push this task forward. cheerleader:

Next change is, that we have brand new global mod, Paw! Good luck! :bg:

And finally, status of James and Rich is changed little bit, they have no longer any moderating duties, they focus only on their own things related to GeneRally. ;)

Congrats to all promoted. :)

My :2c: , point-by-point
· Track restoring
I think users (any) should be the ones who should be restoring tracks. I mean, some of you have huge collections and have the name of the authors... with that, what else do you need??

· New and former moderators
James and Rich should do their GeneRally work, just that, so change's good. About Paw... I wouldn't have selected him. He has broken some "moral rules" (backseat moderating, etc) recently and there's other good guys.

IMO Paw is very good choice, I think he suits being as moderator better than some of the other moderators.
Anyway, I don't see why "backseat moderating" would be wrong, especially if it's done good. I think that rude post by normal member is more effective than a polite post by admin/moderator.

Congratulations everyone :D

Thank you ladies and gentlemans!

I hope, that you won't give me much to do, right? ;)

I will try my best to keep the forum in good condition.

Best regards and thanks again.

you need the authors permission to re-post their work. Some of them have them wrote in the readmes some not, some do not allow to re-post their work and need to be contacted or persuaded to do so, some authors are simply nowhere to find as they dont have any address written,...and maybe what is even more important, everything needs to be done systematically to prevent confusion in the track restoring task.

Eventually the help of all the members will be needed if there would be missing pieces to this track restoring puzzle :mrgreen:

Good choice Ivo. Paw is a great member, and I'll think he'll be perfect for this place in the staff.

@ Paw: Good luck!

All the changes are result of discussion of all admins. And Paw's name was originally nominated to the discussion by Tuomo. :bg:

And I believe, that he's good choice, too. :)

I was actually thinking about turning into a troll for the next two weeks. :D

...Nah.

Good luck with the... Promotion. :)

I think it was a good choice. As was letting Rich & James use most of the needed GR-time to the actual updating instead of also having to use the limited time on moderating the boards.

When did Buka become an "Ex-Moderator"?

There's nothing more to tell. Unfortunately I just don't have enough time to moderate the forum. For the last few month I only visit regularly 1-2 subforums. :sorry: I'm not leaving though unlike Kory, Raska and TLN. :talkth: I'll just focus more on managing competitions and ToM, maybe on trackmaking.

What about making a rank for normal members?

What is the font name of the words "Administrator" and "Moderator"? :scratch:

EDIT: And what is the font size?

@ Thunderstucker: I don't think, that every user on this forum needs a rank, it would just hide the master awards (which are privilege) and staff ranks (which have function to help people to easily distinguish staff members, when they need a help, or other important persons like James from rest of members). ;)

@ The MNZ: Buka will not be replaced by new name. At least not in close future.

But if we don't have a rank, we will be thinking you are so much superior to us, that people might think they don't do anything for the forums. That's why I took the liberty to make the Guru and Retired Staff buttons. ;)

As I told, staff ranks are to help people to easy distinguish staff - that's a reason, why retired staff and Gurus have no staff rank too - they are not a forum staff (it would confuse regular members, so they could try to ask them for help with forum issues - it's not job of these guys like James or Buka). Otherwise having a rank under avatar is exclusive privilege - and it's reserved for wizards/masters (these ranks are ''more'' than staff rank, that's why e.g. Tuomo has no staff rank).

What about a small icon below the avatar that shows a post rank? So for example 0 posts would be something like "Downloader" 1 - 50 posts would be a low post rank, 50 -100 posts would be average, 100 - 300 would be above average and over 1000 would be "Master poster" or something.

TBH I never really understood all the fuss about the post count - it most of the time tells absolutely nothing about anything really. For example, look at Maciej1's post count, it's next to 0, but he is one of the most popular and awarded trackmakers on the forum. :2c:

I think so too, the important thing is not the post count, is the work at all that you do here,
I have a lot of post too and i'm not good at anything :ashamed:

A better graphic would be CoM/ToM podiums and wins, but again, its not necessary.

BTW, is this the best thread to discuss in? xD

Post Re: Changes in staff structure
Technically we can have just one rank system (unless we'll somehow find a way, how to double it in the forum engine). So if we use that one by a way, which we do, we cannot have 2nd one with these posting classes. Out of that I agree with egamad and maxi17.

And Luke is totally right: :backtt:.
