    Hey there everyone! A lot has been going on recently that you may not know about yet, including the results of the moderator applications and a few changes around the site, so this announcement will just summarise them all.

    Moderator Applications
    Quite a few great applications came in, but following some discussions and a range of votes, we’re happy to announce the following new moderators:
    - @ace.
    - @Sketch

    So feel free to congratulate them, but be aware that they may not have been walked through some of the features and tasks they can do on the site, so give them a bit of time to settle in :p

    Time Tutor Staff
    You may have seen that we’ve been aiming to remove any staff positions that were causing issues. First the Tournament Organisers went, now the Time Tutors have been removed as a role. We’d like to thank those who allowed the Time Tutor role to survive for so long, however recent changes and our increased want for community interaction mean that we’d like to look at another way to do things.

    In the near future, we will be looking to allow the community as a whole to get involved in these threads, under the “Improvement” section for each game (MK7 and MK8D’s will be made soon), so stay tuned for any further updates on that front.

    Media Staff
    For people who may not be aware, Media Staff will be undergoing a range of changes soon also. One of the main ones will be that game-specific casting teams will be coming in, so please expect improvements in these areas, even if the beginning from the MKW Casting Team, and the MK8D Casting Team (both of which will be looking at casting the Mario Kart World Cup) may be a bit of a learning process. There are discussions on how to represent the Media Staff after this proposed split, however nothing in that area is finalised yet, so again stay tuned.

    World Cup
    For those of you who haven’t seen, the Mario Kart World Cup will be in full swing within the next few weeks, with the schedule coming out soon, and threads with important information such as sending your miis in this section. Please again stay tuned, but be aware that MKBoards staff will be looking at the section closely throughout the cup, so if you do have any issues don’t hesitate to report them.

    Other Stuff
    We don’t have too much else to say as of this current update. I believe personally that we’re making a lot of progress, and again if you do have any suggestions for us to make progress in areas that matter to you, please talk to members of staff or suggest them in the suggestions thread.

    Other than that, I hope you all have a great day!

    Spend more than two weeks doing the job actively and maybe they'd consider.

    Good luck to the new mods, good choices going forward. You guys got some weight on your shoulders now, hopefully it doesn't get to you.
