Post 5 months of GRIF - changes in the staff and new rules
Guys, I wish you to tell some important news.

First, we have changes in mods crew and even some major promotions! I proudly welcome new faces - XYY will be since now local mod of main part of forum - Tracks section. :up:

Second new face is TLN, who will has special position - he becomes our official Track Restorer. :bg: His job will be in closest time horizon to find tracks, which we know about their status to be free to share - tracks, which survived all troubles will readmes, which allow it, because this kind of tracks can be freely uploaded to forum without any legal problems (if we do it correctly). He will tell you later more in the Restored tracks, how his effort will be organized and how can we all other can be useful to him in this giant work. :boxing: So for now in Restored Tracks area not only original authors, but TLN too may uploads tracks. Fight for saving GR treasures continue. :popcorn:

And now promotions. Buka becomes global mod, his place as Local mod of Championships area will be abandoned without compensation, AFAIK we don't need it. And main promotion? TuomoH becomes admin, equal in everything to me and Ivo. :wow:

Congratulations, guys! :clap:


Second news is, that we have new rules, which you surely noticed thanks to PMs (not one :rage: ). The rules are result of hard discussion of all mods (we worked on it several months), they should solve some problems of old rules, but we didn't wanted to do just update, but make new rules, which will fit better to us all instead of some of rigid, useless and unreasonable habits from past. The rules are in force since today, they will not be applied on things, which happened before this day (like tracks posted here before this day) - everything, what happened in past here stays under old order.

Thanks for attention.

DXTR

Are you sure that sending the PM 4 times is enough? :mrgreen:

Global PM send as you wished.

BTW don't think, that we sent it to you 4 times, because we really want to be sure, that you had read it. It's not my fault. When I tried to send it, it showed me always server error 500, so I completely didn't know, that it was sent, until DXTR screamed on me, that he received it 4 times! :rage: :faintgirl: :hide: :D

I'm sorry. :(

And my congrats to new/promoted guys too. Good luck! :bg:

It's bit strange to promote someone to a moderator when he has been an (active) member of the community for just few months :really:

:iagree:

It was surprising for me, honestly, he is rookie and I think that someone we know for longer time and someone who proved to be responsible would be better :hide:

(No offence XYY but I had to say that...)

XYY was chosen as he proved active interest in keeping rules of forum, he placed many very valuable and precise reports to mods, which helped us a lot to keep order in this forum. Making him to be local mod is next logical step, if he has interest to do it. Plus his always polite behavior and valuable posting prevent to have any doubts, which could raise with his not high age. And he's long time active in German forum, where he achieved lot of experience before being active here. Being moderator is not award for long presence in forum, but service to others. I have full trust, that he'll do it well. :bg:

Well, let's just say that being a moderator requires something more than being polite and helpful.

But it's your decision...

I agree with Aleksi and Dan, I also think that some members would be better for this kind of task, but this is not democracy so it's up to the admins to decide :D

Anyways LONG LIFE TO GRIF :clap:

Exactly, now it's not like "you can't do anything without permission", but "what isn't forbidden is allowed". This will make things easier for many people, especially if you can't contact authors.

I must add one next news about moderators team, this times sad: Kory Miller was set free from mods duties because of his private life. If his situation would change once, we'll welcome him back between active moderators with pleasure.

Thank you, Kory. :bg:
