So... what is a PR Admin?

PR means public relations, which boils down to providing information from the staff to the membership. The last iteration of such a position was lost years ago, and it's created a bit of a communication barrier between members and staff on the forum. Specifically, Perry's random bouts of disappearing and/or non-communication meant that some folks were left with a lot of questions and no answers. The forum awards, for example, have been tentatively "thought about" for years, with no indication of action actually being taken.

Perry's policy of observation, non-confrontation and "letting things happen" is just how he is. He's a classically soft administrator, but he requires a kick in the ass sometimes to get things moving when they need to.

That's where I come in. Your concerns are my business. Got a question? Comment? Suggestion? I'll be more than happy to check it out, and you have my word that you'll get a response as soon as possible.

What a whilrwind of emotion. First Tesso buys the forums, then it's a planned joke and he's leaving, now he's admin again. Next you'll make Mikey a mod and then I'll know that all hell has broken loose.

It only went as long because Perry was in China. The original plan was to swap out until April 2nd, but he decided to watch how things panned out until he returned to the US. I had stopped altering things on the site by April 2nd, anyway. All I was doing for the past week or so were some IP sweeps and helping the new moderators acclimate.

You will be delighted to know I have no interest in a mod position. IDW mayor is another story though.

a 20 day April fools joke wasn't what I had in mind when I said you should do something for the 10 year anniversary of this iteration of IDW Perry. But I approve lol.

You know me, I pop in and out.

So question, like, when's the experiment supposed to end?

Also, who are our Global Moderators these days? I haven't seen a single blue badge yet.

well uh... it doesn't really work that way anymore.

You didn't read some posts, it seems. The experiment was a test to see how the dual admin system would work under varying circumstances. It worked, so it's staying.

Also, the moderator system was revamped years ago. All Forum Moderators have the same privileges that Global Moderators had back then, and so all mods are in the same group. There's no need for differing "tiers" of mods with activity trending like it is now.

The AS Mod Team was shuffled into the regular team a long, long time ago. Right now, the Arcade Stage section is the most popular section in terms of section views, so having a specific mod just for that section might not be a bad idea.

However, Arcade Stage folks are fairly separated from the rest of the community, so I have no idea who to look at if we went forward and made an AS Mod. Right now, the mod team is more than adequate, so the AS Mod Team is not being considered for revival.

Still... never forget.

Project W Sysops were/are involved in the "Project W" wiki. Insidious is the only member I can think of that still wears that badge:
