Good choices.

Kitsune is very active and doesn't cause trouble, Kupo is a nice guy who is really involved in the community.

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty
and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.."
I suppose we all thought that one way or another.
KUPO WE LOVE YOU

The staff didn't base their choice off of who had the most nominations. That thread wasn't a vote for who would be monitor, just a way to gauge an idea of who would be interested.

the community doesn't always just voice their choices based off popularity. A lot of times its simply just who would be best for the job. I think the missed opportunity here was diversifying the staff and choosing people that weren't part of the hierarchical circlejerk of the site.

If you're talking about Verb, he got quite a bit of support during the staff discussions, including my own. We simply are looking to see if his turnaround keeps itself up before we suddenly give him a position of power. Assuming he does keep it up, he'll be considered in the time that we need more staff.

If you're talking about others, multiple people were discussed in the discussions. We kept an open mind.

The thing with Verb is that we'd like to see him to continue to be the same mellow individual he has been and addition to being more accepting of opposing ideas/opinions/etc. The former bit will hopefully continue, the second needs work, but could work with a trial period, its not like he wasn't considered, he did have votes for him. He just needs some time and he could very will get it. The current pick was just what we had decided after going back and forth with the pros and cons of individuals and who we felt most comfortable with for the time being.

I'm just saying I think popularity among the staff played more a factor than you guys like to admit.

We made the decision that we felt would best help the site at this time. We don't need moderators, we sought out friendly faces of the community.

see this is a good example of what i mean

I guarantee you Joceph makes more people laugh than anyone on this site. He is the epitome of a "friendly face"

but he doesn't participate in any circlerjerks and that was his downfall

stop laying it all out, I'm trying to be passive aggressive.....


but to be serious, I guess the "circlejerk" is the only way the staff can reasonably trust someone enough to bestow a position of power.

take kitsune for example. Yea she was a newcomer to this community, but it's obvious she really digs this site and is really active. she also has a unique perspective as a complete newcomer to this place ..... although the majority of future members will be from bnet.

This supposed circle-jerk played no role in our choosing of new monitors. We picked the two candidates that we felt have, and will, best represent our community and help to sustain it's longevity. In the event that they fail to do so, we will reevaluate our choice and consider other candidates who posted in the thread.

If you are looking for some conspiracy, there isn't one.

I'm going to point out here that Psy and Cheat are the only ones who talk to Kitsune on a regular basis.

Psy and I are the only ones that have talked to Kupo on a regular basis.

There are also a lot of other people that Psy, Cheat, Yutaka, Comet, Flee, and I talk to on a regular basis that applied and didn't make the cut.

It's kind of hard to claim circle jerk when each member of the staff is involved in different/multiple circles and we had a three day debate in HQ over who would be the best pick.

Jo is really friendly!

Also, feel free to join the chat groups on skype if that's what you're calling a "circle-jerk".

Anyone can add me: creepykitusune
