Hey all, the first of a couple bigger changes to the forum is on its way!

 

The rest of the staff and I discussed the large number of members with the "Retired Staff" rank and decided that for such a small forum, 13 people with that rank was relatively too many. It made the upper ranks a bit moot because a lot of members who have higher post counts have generally been on staff at one point. So our solution is to change the rank so it applies only to previous site owners, which means it will only belong to Hero and Kyle, and eventually Mage and his successors.

 

Everyone who currently has that rank which is not Hero or Kyle will return to their normal place in the rank system with a new badge indicating they were a staff member at one point because we still love them.

 

We'll be using a placeholder badge for the first little while, the real one is in the works, we just want to get this change out the door. If it's the one I think we'll be using, it's a joke badge. RetireStaffcopy_zps0b666c3f.png (Gold watch with a fireflower wearing a gold watch.)

 

This change will be going into effect either tonight or tomorrow depending on how busy we all are.

I can agree with this. It seemed like half the forum base had the rank. It seemed a little odd.

Ah I get it now. This is about whoever has an account labeled as a founder in the acp then?

I can't tell you how many times I have thought that. I can accept this change :'D

We still love our staff though, so I think a badge is suitable to represent their everlasting contribution. On the bright side, now retired staff can have fun climbing the post ranks again instead of being orange until the end of time

There isn't really a founder rank, only Admins and Moderators (there isn't some hidden secret "Founder" rank that exist that gives extra powers because Admins already have max possible powers). So basically a founder is the single person that holds the account info for the Hostgator and IP Board websites and pays them money whenever it's time to.
