So, are we not supposed to voice our concerns at all? I'm sorry, but I have concerns about this and thus I feel like I should voice them. As I said, I don't have any problems with CGI and Ryuu being chosen themselves, I'm concerned about this process in the first place.
I think the mod thread is for those kind of complaints and discussion. A thread like this is for giving congrats/platitudes. They always used a hierarchical system but they vote for some things so I don't really see a reason for the concern.
