I am glad to see that Bristow didn't make the cut. This means that I am not a "special" user.

That will come in a future announcement, we're still trying to settle on payment.

Well, that's interesting. I didn't think that you'd be competing with other mods for the job. How much are they willing to pay Miguel to get the job, and how much are you willing to pay?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Just pay up already. We don't have time to wait.

But this didn't, or hasn't, happened... there were two head mods, one of them stepped down, the other remains... he now has two people lower than him, but above the rest of us, deputy head mods, they have replaced nobody, it just makes life easier for him, and none of us have a problem with it.

OK then, I'm asking why though instead of replacing the head mod who stepped down, why this decision was made instead?

I think you are asking a fair question, although perhaps not necessary to ask it that many times xD

Ultimately I think it comes down to maintaining a standard hierarchy structure while relieving the practical issues of having a single head mod with regards to availability.

The main advantage i can think of with a standard hierarchy structure, is that final say will remain with a single person. This means that a decision can be made quickly and with finality. This type of decision making I find to be rare, but at times is necessary. I feel as though having 2 or 3 head mods is not as efficient, as ultimately a decision needs to be made.

The above type of decision making as i mentioned is rare. For all the other tasks that require head mod privileges there is no problem for a deputy mod to resolve it. This way the workload of the head mod can be split, as Miguel is limited by his activity and time zone, regardless of his commitment.

Another way to look at it, is that neither Ryuu nor CGI have previously been head mods. So perhaps this is a mechanism that can be used to prepare them for promotion to being an actual head mod. Whether that is a head mod team or as a replacement to Miguel.

Both of these guys have very helpful and active since they joined the mod team, and have made great contributions in a number of ways.  They'll join me in helping to manage many aspects of the mod team, including:

- Dealing with "Special" users

Slade? 

I've came a long way since Nsanity and congrats to CGI.

Damn my bf gets even more power. To all my haters, I'm pretty much invincible now.

So suck on that. 

OT: Didn't like CGI to be honest at first, but he's gotten a lot better. Congrats CGI. Reece I've known for like 5 years. We met up in Yorkshire last Holiday for some fish and chips, and a nice boat ride later on Paris.

Appreciate your honesty. :)

Thanks for the congrats, too!



                                                                                                                                                           

I never post on these sort of threads but man did it get derailed a while ago, if brett really wanted to he could've relieved every current staff including the head mod of their duties and turn this place upside down so it's not even Miguel who has the final say ...

Anyways good luck to CGI since he's one of the very few members that I have genuine respect for and Ryuu seems like a decent enough regular so I have no qualms about his character either ...
