    Tbf its a bit odd that there are 17 dislikes on an unlisted video. The last public one on the channel had 6 likes and 1 dislike. As I said, seems odd. I don't think like ratio is the most effective way to prove the point.

    I mean I'd say the ratio is quite accurate, production was pretty poor on the video itself, you can't even hear people talking its drowned out by the music and the actual audio was done all in one go... and the April video didn't even mention the biggest thing of the month being the release of MK8 Deluxe, the biggest thing in mario kart

    For media staff to improve, we need people to apply more often and dedicate time. That's a lot to ask in a small community like ours.

    So implying that one below average video may be part of a wider systemic problem? Also as its still in the unlisted phase wouldn't it be possible to redo it to sort out the issues? Surely all videos should go through a screening process anyway to eliminate any problems.

    I don't know if an entire staff restructuring should be based on 1 video with an unusual like/dislike ratio. Its not a very solid metric to go on when literally the past 5 videos had no dislikes on them.

    I'd like to know how an unlisted video got that much attention, when as @AbaraiK said, that phase is to find and sort out problems before publishing the video.

    Clearly that staff member didn't listen to us about making it unlisted first, then.

    What a shame.

    Pay your graphics artists, they put it alot of time and effort and it shouldn't be for free, they could be using that time on a commission but instead its for league teams where the payment is gratification and people complaining

    what about the rest of the staff taking time off their days almost 365 days of the year to help the community? In a perfect world giving artists money would be nice but why only the artists?

    There's more demand, harder to get GFX artists than staff members, etc.

    that is true but why pay for a GFX artist when you can get someone to do it for free?

    commissions is commisions but if you want to do a good deed for a community you're not really expected to be payed tbh. contribution is for the dedicated people to a community they love.

    It's moreso they deserve to be paid for their work, I know I wouldn't really appreciate it if someone came to me for a logo design and I was like "hey no problem man this one's on me"

    it's understandable, sure. but community service it's kinda unexpected to be getting payed for it. but i agree it's deserved to be as you could simply do commisions and you put time and effort into art, but like drag said if that happens then certain staff members should also be getting paid too since they also help the community just like artists

    volunteering and commissions are completely different and the former doesn't require payment. when people sign up for any staff position on this site it's voluntary.

    if artists on the site wanna do commissions they can set something up elsewhere, no?

    Who exactly would pay for the artists? Respective staff groups who need the banners or someone else? Winning team etc

    The idea is nice in principle but I don't think it's practical. The artists have always done voluntary work and it's largely been excellent. We're also not the biggest site so paying for something like that just seems like a waste to me, when the money could go to other aspects of the site to benefit everyone.

    Noticed there no more Stream lab for anyone who stream MK games. I don't know if this suggestion will work. but perhaps a twitch Community of MKboards could work? you can make a community pretty easy there i believe. Sorry forget about it, i just find it! But a Stream lab could be sweet as well!

    Signature display toggle.

    Forum display toggle (categories have that covered with the collapse/expand button already, but forums should also have some kind of toggle).

    Something like this would make it easier to see how many teams there are in WL, which divisions those teams are in and who is playing for those teams. Maybe for teams that have multiple teams playing allow them to have multiple threads, not sure on that. I'd just like to be able to click on some team and see their roster for that WL team. Right now the only way I really can do that is by looking at the WL registry which can take a while and doesn't really make comparing teams very easy.

    I like that idea, Pick-up Group's definition can now be "not playing in a league" and return as a forum/sub-forum.

    But how will the site enforce the teams to list their WL rosters?

    I personally don't mind the banners too much if that is what you are hinting at, but it would be nice if we could make them take like half the space
