Hello there, everyone. It's been quite a while since we last had an announcement, however this one comes with some rather important news in regards to staffing changes. As some of you may have heard, we've had a couple of staff who have decided that, due to factors I'm sure they'd be willing to share if appropriate, they'll be stepping down with almost immediate effect. Those moderators are: - @Dragmirejr - @Sane I'd like to thank both of them for all the time and effort they've been able to put in to the staff team and the communities surrounding them, and wish them the best of luck in future endeavors, wherever that may take them. So that leaves the question of who's going to be replacing those particular staff. The MKBoards Staff team have decided this time not to have an application process and to instead recruit based upon suggestions and past experience, and thus I'd like everyone to congratulate @Markness on obtaining a moderator position again. For those who don't know, Markness was a moderator in the past, in fact quite a veteran with his experience, and so hopefully such experience and expertise can justify the decision staff made to appoint him as opposed to opening public applications at this current moment in time. Also, just before we all forget, Mario Kart World Cup's section and their matching World Cup Staff Applications section will be made public within the next few days, so once that's up feel free to check it out and read any of the important threads. Feel free to congratulate and thank the members listed above within this thread, as well as giving constructive suggestions based upon any recent actions. Obviously this announcement will be moderated like any other, so please stay within the realms of sensibility where possible.
