    The thing is getting someone to do it... lol. It would take literally a couple minutes to correct most of those things, and all that needs to be done is someone with moderator powers has to click edit and paste over a few links. We've been switched for a week, and I guarantee not everyone...

    This could perhaps be an extension of Firice da Vinci's suggestion to have a weekly newsletter sort of thing for the forums. I recommended bringing it up with the rest of the event staff in Skype, so that's probably something you could throw in as part of the suggestion as well. The Forum...

    Like my previous post said (which was made only a little bit before yours, so you probably didn't see it), one thing we are in dire need of is a proper technical administrator. Locke knows his way around things and is relatively tech-savvy, but he doesn't have the skill or time to make a lot of...

    I always liked there to be at least 6, but more can only help. There's no real downfall to putting more mods on the team than you need. It not only spreads out the work and makes it so that you don't have to feel like you're constantly patrolling when you want to enjoy the forums, but also opens...

    I don't think it's particularly odd to pick newer users, but it is probably a bit of a misfire to bring someone on who had just started visiting the forums again after a long absence. That shows what could be a lack of dedication, whereas a new member is more of an unknown. When needed, newer...

    I would like to remark that there was recent conversation (a couple weeks old) among the mods about finding members who are more apt to visit certain areas of the forum (MD was one in particular that was brought up) and would be willing to be moderators focusing on those sections; however...

    Then these changes should have been announced by them, and they should be taking the lead on them. You said you'd work on this stuff when back from the marathon, but it's really their job. I think it would help to establish them more as authority within the community AND solve a lot of these...

    That's actually probably the biggest issue, not allowing or getting people to help with things that can't be fully attended to alone or don't have the time given to them to solve, which is why authority needs to be spread out more to let other people help with things Locke doesn't have the time for.

    Main discussion took place in the mod chat even then. Topics in The Office were seen as a way to get input from people who weren't around when discussion was going on in the skype chat.

    Can I make a suggestion on the theme? I think it would look better with a wrapper/container around the actual forums (the index body, forum view body, etc.) with a differing background so everything doesn't seem to "float" in space and look free on the webpage without some superior grouping...
