Heyo!

It is me again, coming with another batch of staff promotions. On behalf of all the bureaucrats, I am proud and happy to announce the new promotions and additions to the staff team after getting input from most of our staff members. I am very glad that the following members have agreed to shoulder the increased responsibilities in their new positions which means less responsibilities for me cuz I'm lazy, so yay! (I'm kidding, obviously).

Sysops/Administrators:
@Starter_Pack, @Ogbunabali and @Abstractions

Content Moderator: @Just_a_Random_Butler

Thread Moderators: @Planck69 and @KingTempest


These are all very well deserved promotions and I hope they will bring forth some new changes and work to improve the wiki in their own ways. A hearty congratulations to all of them, and please make them feel welcome below.

Oh no. I can see the flood of pings and messages coming my way, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!

In all seriousness, though, I'm probably the most shocked of anyone here that I've managed to come as far as I have. Even after all this time, there's a part of me that doesn't even feel like I should be a Content Mod, much less a Sysop now. (I unironically have horribly low levels of self-esteem, as some people on Discord can attest to.)

However, the thing that I realized that was ultimately the reason why I decided to accept was because, at the end of the day, not a lot will change. Yes, I have just grown an enormous target on my back for both average users and trolls alike, but for the most part, my job shall hopefully remain the same as it was before, just with extra perks and the responsibility that comes with said perks.

And as me and my fellow Content Mods have blue dye spilled into our yellow names, I shall hope that the remaining members of our forces shall do us proud, especially Saman, who has proven to be a shining example of what a Content Mod should be in my honest opinion.

Thank you everyone for this wonderful opportunity, and I will do my best to perform to the best of my ability from here on out! And a huge congratulations to all of our newly minted staff, sysops and moderators alike.

Planck and King Tempest also do a great job and I praise their ability to handle long and complex threads.

I'm curious, who's the youngest staff member?

Just turned 18 in January so I'm up for debate
Not the youngest, but I think I should be younger than you, because when I have just created my account here, I was only around 11 years old. So with quickmaths, I should be at least a year younger than you?

I would be lying if I said I honestly believed I would receive this role any time soon, I generally keep to myself for the most part and stick to content moderation rather than communication, I always thought that was what worked for me.

I'm honestly really humbled and surprised to have been considered in the first place, it's a shock that there are people among us (don't do it I'm watching all of you) that have faith in my abilities to perform in a position that requires such a high standard. I am well aware of my smaller edit count by comparison to my peers, but I will definitely take the necessary time and effort to prove to, if not others, myself, that I am as deserving of this position as the others that come with me.

I also hope that with my position and the requirements of it (participating in important threads, more revisions, etc.), that it gives me the opportunity to hear more from everyone within this community and how they feel about how things are going and where they are headed, and just maybe I would be able to actually help with that in some way. We are all in this together, after all.


On a lighter note:
Bruh, time to promote some babysitters.
I'm very much old enough to qualify for such a position, so you get your wish!

Thank you, everyone, and a big congratulations goes out to all the others promoted alongside me, I am positive you will all perform to the letter. ⚒️
