Hello everybody. This thread is dedicated to housing explanations of the various usergroups here on the forums, as well as providing an up-to-date list of the members of each usergroup and an update log listing changes to those usergroups whenever a member leaves or is promoted to one.

Forum Staff Positions:
Moderator - Moderators serve as members who look over the threads of the forum. They are responsible to ensure that posts are made in the proper sections, make sure that rules are enforced, and make sure that any issues within the threads are resolved as soon as possible.


Administrator - The Administrator handles the behind the scenes happenings of the forum. This includes keeping the software up to date, managing the forum team, forging policy decisions, and stepping in when decisions need to made. They are also the second line of support if a moderator or other ranked member cannot help out.


Community Coordinator - The Community Coordinator is responsible for community matters. They handle backend tasks such as promoting new forum volunteers, name changes, giving out awards, as well as frontend tasks like taking charge of the Event Staff and handling all the threads that are associated with forum events. They also make policy decisions affecting the forum community.

This forum will not tolerate redundancy in this forum.

















In a ll seriousness, though, this is a good idea. Though I don't really see the need for putting the changelog in a spoiler.

I put it in one with the anticipation of the changelog eventually being rather long as events are added to it over time, but I suppose that since it's only a single entry at present it is a bit silly.

Both of these were not readily visible for users who did not already know they existed. This new thread is a clearly labeled, stickied post at the top of the community forum rather than being buried as a link within another post or as a rarely seen link deep within a submenu of the navbar. I'd say most people are not aware of the View Site Leaders page. Additionally, the previous descriptions of user groups were out of date, missing two new categories and featuring a bit of outdated language. This thread has been updated to be current with all new policy and ranks.

Finally, in the future, the moderation team would appreciate if you offered your criticism in a more constructive fashion than simply dropping two links with a single condescending word beneath them.

I guess we need a new update here with the loss of my favourite mod, Vergo. Rip in pieces.
