Hey Guys! So Today i have been thinking About my fav staff! (you know the first one) 1: [A]Frosty [O]rebel24 2: [H]SwitchShotJolt1 3: [H] XJEDDYX 4:[A]Kyle 5:[M] Chris And all the other staff! I mean we all know frosty as the best admin in the whole server! Jamie is the proud owner of this server and is really nice, just like frosty. switch is on alot and is friendly with everyone. All the other staff are nice too!
Peter and I have talked about this a bit on Skype, and I think with the redesign, and the growing focus on Minecraft, rather than reviews/tutorials/etc, this would be a good time to pursue it. I suppose this could also be seen as "Merge Article Managers into User Managers; Rename." The Problem User Managers The point of User Managers is to, well, manage users. However, I've discussed with Peter that this position is either a) too narrow (e.g., their jobs/what to do) or isn't being used (other staff doing the job anyway, which isn't a bad thing, but just redundant). Article Managers This one is pretty obvious really. The original point of Article Managers was to manage the flow of incoming articles. There are many problems with this one. Not only are there a very small number of articles incoming, but they're never approved by Article Managers, they're just posted. Also, JR Network is less-and-less content and more-and-more of a gaming server/forum audience. This makes Article Managers hugely out of date. The Solution Merge them into "Forum Moderators." Forum Moderators approve topics, activate users, do small fixes to posts when the HTML/BBCode decides to be lazy, things of that sort. This cuts down on the redundant groups, and allows for better Forum operation. I suspect that as we focus more on game servers (I fully expect the TF2 Server to grow, now that the game is free, btw), I believe posting articles to the main site is wholly finished, if it hasn't been dying out for the last two years. I also suggest that "Forum Moderators" and "Minecraft Moderator/Admin" be a separate group altogether (that way the Forum and the Minecraft staff can send group-wide messages without involving people who are irrelevant to the situation, this would usually be the case with Minecraft Staff involving the forum staff, as I suspect that a decent portion of the MC Staff would be Moderators on the forums as well.). This however, isn't being presented/addressed in this particular post, and is thus in grey. Also, you may have suggestions on this, so please share below.
