    Staff Demotions - Please Read

    As PSU is growing as a site, a difficult decision was made to rebuild a majority of the staff, primarily the SMC group. DarkVincent, as an exception, will be joining the ranks of the moderators. So as of today, all SMC will be demoted to regular forum members. We need a 100% active, engaged staff, and quite frankly we didn't have that. It isn't fair to PSU, or its members to have a staff comprised of people who simply don't either have the time, or the motivation to be part of the staff. Harsh words, but honest.

    As a result, we will be starting from scratch on getting fresh blood into the staff fold.

    This was not a decision easy to make, but myself and the other admin believe it is the right thing to do in order to try and bring some new breath into the way the forums are moderated. We have heard your complaints about moderation. We have taken steps to ensure everyone who is remaining on staff KNOWS what is expected. Hopefully this strong initiative will be the first of many right steps towards rebuilding the respect that once existed for members of the PSU Staff.

    Well done DV. I recall telling you that you deserved the spot more than me. Although I think some of the demoted SMC were very good with what they did, I support the decision overall. It's time to reassess the staff and what we're looking for. This also gives the opportunity to bring in people who are not only good posters, but who are good for the spot.

    So, will the SMC be rebuilt? or is it just going to be mods, and admins?

    Having active staff is key. Members come and go, much like staff. This is why I gave up my position as Admin here when my real life become too busy for me to spend time here. Luckily now I am in a position once again to come back and be an active member. Truly missed this place, and many of the amazing members we have here.

    10 years and counting!

    PSU has continued to improve over the past year, dramatically. I hope all works out well for this latest change.

    What's SMC? And tough decision, but as been stated, you gotta look out for the best interest of the site. It is a business after all. Best of luck to all involved

    SMC = Senior Member Council. I guess you can call them regular moderators with Moderators here being the super moderators(At least in some sites it was like that).

    They were referring to SMC's. You on the other hand is worthy of Admin without having to go through SMC and Moderator positions. You're too good for those.

    This.

    The Mass Effect 3 $#@!sexuality thread is a good example of the needed change, it took ages until someone did something about the attitude being displayed there.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
