TALK - Here's your cat...and here's your $20...02:40, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
*ducks tomatoes* Aaaah! Alright, alright!

It seems there's been some misunderstanding. It seems some people think Bluer and I don't want any new staff members. Not true. We just don't think we need quite so many, even with Birth by Sleep rearing its head. If we do, than we'll add more and both eat a piece of humble pie. It's made of old newspaper. And humble. But mostly newspaper.

We did have a nice long IRC chat tonight, both with each other and a few concerned parties, though, and here's the decisions we came upon:

  1. We are definitely going to add two new admins, and an undetermined number of mods. It will be at least two. But probably more.
  2. To make up for having less new admins, all mods will be granted the new "move page" ability, which will take some pressure off some of the admin duties.
  3. We will announce the new staffers in two weeks on August 23rd or thereabouts. Those of you who were nominated or discussed as potential staffers in the other staff threads should take notice of this especially. Between now and then, we'll be looking at the contributions made over that two week period. And not just mainspace edit counts, but other factors, like edit quality, interaction with other editors, handling difficult situations, swimsuit contest, helpfulness, and so on. Older contributions will also be considered, but this is your chance to really show your best self off to everyone.

(If for some reason, you won't be avaliable during that two week period for a long part of it, let us know. We'll work something out to make sure you get a fair chance to show your stuff.)

So...that's what's going on. Please continue to discuss politely below if you feel the need to.

TALK - That may be... however, what other choice might we have had?
Interdiction KHD.png That sounds fair, though this would have been nice to mention during the full week that poll was being held. I suppose don't have any problems with this. Out of curiosity, who were the "other parties"?

What, really no swimsuit contest? Awwww...

Aside from that, it seems a fair enough plan to me.

Other editors. I'll leave them to reveal themselves if they choose.

Keyblade-Blk.png You will be awarded bonus points if you can cook a better pie than one made out of newspaper. If not, it requires me to "cook", which means I'm going to burn down my humble abode. Again.

Anyway, would it be possible for the administrators and bureaucrats to once again gather on the IRC in a private room to reach a consensus? That seemed to work very well last time.

TerraCharm.pngI am in full agreemement with BebopKate. She has come up with a very fair soltion to the problem. I honestly don't like the ideas of admins and b-crats meeting in a secret room behind everyone else's backs to decide things. It did not work very well last time for the single reason that it caused the spreading and belief of some false information, etc. But I don't control that, so what happens happens.

Interdiction KHD.png Actually, I didn't have any problem at all with how it was handled last time. It was very clear that the general community was selecting candidates for the current staff to select new admins and mods from. There was no secret meeting then, but I certainly don't like it when there is one.

Roxas's Symbol small.pngSounds good to me. I'll get right on the pie-baking. What kind would everyone prefer? Apple? Cherry?

Keyblade-Blk.png Thank you, LapisScarab, and we are always open to suggestions, ENX. However, we cannot openly or blatantly say on the main channel or on the wiki things like, "Okay, so I want this user for this reason, and definitely not this user for these reasons." It just leads to users getting offended. The decision is made by staffers because that we are using our skills of judgment that come to us with our induction to the Kingdom Hearts Wiki staff. Unlike on other wikis, being a staffer often times means more than just an extra function or two. My apologies, but I would much prefer it if the staffer meeting could be held in this manner. Users selecting our candidates for our judgment to be passed onto is the easiest way to include the opinions of both the non-staffers and staffers in conjuction without having to have an open discussion.

"Come on! Show a little backbone!"

Well...aside from my "comment" below, this is the first time looking upon this thread. As you may already know, I was gone for two weeks, from the 6th to the 20th, had no access to the Internet, and therefore did not know I would be judged during a two-week period.

and from now on are users of Moderator rights.

Hey guys, we haven't forgotten. Bear with us for a little while longer, we're waiting on confirmation of something. Thanks! BebopKate 03:17, August 24, 2010 (UTC)
