No no, get it right. Hugpile, like our great overlord Purlox has said.

I have a suggestion. Please be more transparent.

 

Look; since a few months ago the redesign that was supposed to happen never did, we lost an admin and got a new one, and got two more mods. And how is the average user supposed to know what the heck is going on? Even I don't know why half this stuff is going on. Why were these people chosen? What is happening in the future?

 

This forum seems to be to be on shaky grounds as it is. I just wonder why you can't give us just a little post explaining what is going on behind the scenes and why these people are good candidates for moderation or administration.

Here comes some transparency (as much as I can give, for reasons in the following paragraph).

 

I've been away from the site for about 3 weeks or so (in reality, more like 5 weeks because I wasn't really active for 2 weeks before then), because I was on holiday/vacation in another country. I'm not exactly up to speed on what's been going on during that time, but I'm getting there as quickly as I can.

 

Regarding the recent staff changes, I can't say much, particularly not about the global mod promotions (because I haven't been here), but regarding my promotion to admin, I have a feeling it is based on my previous moderation/administration experience on sites such as Dreamviews. I know that it's a bit of a fool's errand to try and justify my own promotion, but I hope that I can help make the site better while I'm here, even if some parties may have a hard time believing that.

 

Regarding the site redesign, it has taken quite a bit longer than we hoped, but it's being worked on for sure. We encountered a problem when we tried to transfer the redesigned forum stuff from the development site to the production site (a lot of stuff like modified templates was lost) so I've been working (a few hours so far, today) on restoring some of that stuff and also fixing some other bugs in the themes which I didn't anticipate.

 

We also worked a bit on other sections of the site today, such as the "links" section (which will contain links to related websites and stuff), and fixing some 301 redirects on the main page (www).

 

I've probably missed something here, not intentionally, so please let me know if I have, or if you want clarification on something.

Maybe another mod or admin can answer the questions I had about mod and admin appointments. Chupi, I suppose.

Thank you for the redesign info. Could you give an estimate for completion?

I'm not sure how long the whole thing will take, but I would guess the forum themes will be done within 1-2 weeks. Maybe sooner, but I'm currently juggling this with a university resit assessment (which I have to pass if I want to stay in university), so no promises. :(

He asked you for the mod and admin appointments, Chupi. Not just the estimate. Give him the most important information first, come on.
