30 something staff members. That's a rather... Gargantuan number when you think about it. I've always figured that we had much less than that, however, that's not the case anymore.
It's crazy to think we need this many staff members. Don't get me wrong, I've had the idea flicker for a moment that we'd be nearing this point in the near future but I never expected it to become an actual problem. He, in just a few months we've gone from a lack of to a swift over abundance.
This does imply change, but nothing you guys need to worry about to be honest. In reality we're just going through a bit of an efficiency problem at the moment, and to compensate we'll be cracking down and working extra hard to justify the staff we already have.
However, with every problem comes its silver lining, and this ones is far too large to simply ignore by any means. In the past few months we brought new staff on board in preparation for Brony Day. Last year, we held a marathon of all the episode and attracted a crowd of over 300 people, many of which who stayed at the site. As you may be able to assume, it was utter hell on the staff at the time in terms of moderation, (lucky for me, I wasn't on the staff then.) and for this year's event, which I won't reveal in case it's a secret, we've adequately prepared.
What does this all mean to you guys? Of course it means we probably won't be needing to select applications for a while, depending on how successful the upcoming holiday is, and it also means much more will be done around the site. However, don't stop sending them in guys, we're constantly reviewing them for whenever the need arises and we much prefer those who apply in advance in comparison to those who only do it when the need arises.
On a completely unrelated note, my girlfriend and my best friend's girlfriend are writing a Yaoi fanfic about me and my best friend.
That's all for now
