This thread is 100% going to have a lot of controversy but that is okay.
The Stafflist and its inactive/resigned moderators
I personally think that the staff list of the forums should probably be completely redone. There are a lot of old staff still on there, new staff just kind of.. thrown onto the list, and very very very old staff still marked as "Internet Issues" or "Busy" when they have been marked like that for more than three years. Since 2019 started, there have only been 4-5 active moderators out of 16 current moderators.
I think those staff who have been marked "Busy" or "Internet Issues" should say goodbye and put under the "Resigned" section. There is no way to be Busy or have Internet Issues for threee years. I get maybe a year, but three years...
There is currently only one forum moderator, that is Space Fetus, and it can get very challenging I'm pretty sure. We have had many players leave the forums due to the toxicness and are now not returning to the forums. I personally think that we need about 3-4 more Forum Moderators. Yes, I get many people do not want to be forum moderators but I'm sure, if you look through the thousands of signed up players, you'd find more than a few really really good players interested in moderating the forums.
This isn't a personal feeling, I know everyone feels like this. I think the drama on the forums and ingame should stop. There is no reason for people to start fights over stupid stuff. For example, the banning of Latecom. He got what he deserved and there are still people fighting for his ban to be lifted. Eagence, again, got what he deserved but still fighters trying to lift his ban. I think we should come together as a community, which we once were, and stop pinning stupid stuff on players. There is no reason multiple users request a ban on the forums because of the drama, and the state of the forums.
This is no way meant to start more drama or bash at people or even throw hate to anyone. This is simply meant to express what I believe should try and be done. I really hope some people listen to this thread and try help work through what has happened. Yes, we have gotten better with the drama, but with more and more situations coming up, the drama just keeps returning. I know its impossible to 100% remove drama but I still believe we can try to get rid of most of it..
The Return of Official Events
Yes, there have been some positive stuff that has also happened. Space fetus returning the Official Events and now the drama for "hire someone new" and stuff like that will be over. I'm happy we have the Official Events back, lets just hope they stay back.
New people of the forums
Yes, we have gotten many many new people onto the forums which is a great thing! The forums is a great place to stay updated on everything Cubic. I'm very very happy that new people are discovering the game and discovering the forums because it is really good to have new people.
