Re: Lessening dependency on the Staff Board
Our staff boards are usually pretty quiet aside from the ban list, the occasional "discuss this person's ban" and "mod this person?", actually. I mean, it took us 4 months to figure something like a forum layout that we ended up with. The only error we've made, as far as we can tell, as not leaving the spring cleaning thread up for long enough. As a side effect, it was very tough to gauge how people would react when so little input was placed into it until the change happened.
I think the staff did well overall after the change, considering that we've done a lot of tweaks to try and make as many people happy as we can. Though we also realize that we can never make everybody happy either.
We actually are trying to be as transparent as possible.
