Title: Ghost Updaters
Post by: Latios212 on February 19, 2019, 03:14:12 AM
Introducing a new role: Ghost Updaters!

...

No, I didn't kill them. Recently a couple of staff members have messaged me that their lives have gotten too busy as of late to really keep up with the site as much as they've wanted to. We've made the decision to assign the Ghost Updater role to Bespinben, JDMEK5, and InsigTurtle. Unlike other staff members who have stepped down from their staff responsibilities with the status of Staff Emeritus, these role changes reflect not a lack of desire to do further work on the site, but a lack of time to commit. All three have made clear their desire to continue contributing despite current conditions. So moving forward, staff members with this role are still free to perform staff duties when their schedules allow, but you may not see them around very much. This role was created to better clarify that expectation to everyone. (It also comes with a cool new badge.)

Periodically we'll review our staff and make role changes as appropriate to reflect our current status. Please join me in thanking our wonderful updating staff for their past and continued service!

I originally thought this meant that people will anonymously add sheets to the website without us knowing. I don't know why I thought that, but I did.
Title: Re: Ghost Updaters
Post by: Splatoon Inkling on February 19, 2019, 08:02:55 PM
At one point I never even knew how these sheets got on the main site.

Why, the sheets just walk on in by themselves!!

Post by: JDMEK5 on February 21, 2019, 09:25:39 PM
Looks wonderful; thanks fellas. I want to just briefly add that the only reason I for one thought this was a reasonable course of action (in contrast to outright resignation) is that we have already functioned as updaters and intermittent as it may be, our involvement of any level would (in theory) only be beneficial for everyone, much less a detriment. So the purpose is to clear things up, but I'd like to thank you all for your good faith that despite not being around enough to justify the full updater status and the weight that goes with it, we are still willing and capable of helping insofar as we are able as updaters. Hence, ghost updaters.

How do you even become an updater or staff in the first place anyway? I've always wondered.

Me too, I've searched the forums but found nothing.
Edit: But that makes sense as it is most likely something to be discussed privately rather than in a public section of the forum.

Essentially, if someone is skilled in arranging and consistantly gives a lot of feedback, they may be approached by the updater team.

Becoming an updater sounds.... somewhat simple, but not.
Title: Re: Ghost Updaters
Post by: Bobbythekid21 on February 24, 2019, 09:06:36 PM
Hmm. I thought only notes and rests were allowed on the staff...

Aaaand I'll see myself out.

Edit: Anyway, what about simply being a moderator or even more simply part of the staff (like bubbles)?

Moderators and such aren't really in high demand anymore, but just like with the Updaters, the staff will discuss and decide on adding staff members if they see an obvious need or role needing filled.

Okay, funny joke, but please don't abuse the Report to Moderator button.  It should only be used for legitimate reports.

Wow, I didn't think splat legit hit the report button. SMH irresponsible kid, you don't deserve to be a mod. Jk.

Edit: Wait a minute, I just thought of something. Can a mod be reported to a mod? If so, can a mod ban themselves? Can a mod report someone else to themselves?
If so...
So many paradoxical possibilities to be explored by yours truly... probably never...

Edit 2 (wow, never done this b4): also splat, you realize that Mikey is not even part of the staff and therefore cannot make you a mod right?
Title: Re: Ghost Updaters
Post by: Splatoon Inkling on March 04, 2019, 02:55:54 AM
Well, apparently  you can report the mods because they have the button too. Maybe I can replace Dudeman...

As fun as all of this is to read, if we ever decide we need new or additional miss the staff will discuss it privately before contacting anybody about a possible position. That said, if you continue to pretend to be a moderator, I will spare no mercy in bringing the full power of the ban hammer down on you.

You kids have fun.
