Hello everypony, it's that time of the week again, so let's get started!
I'm very happy to say we have a bunch of staff changes, so be prepared to clap your hooves together!
In the radio, we have three new chat moderators! Give a very warm welcome to the return of Harley and two new chat moderators TomTortoise and Blazing Dawn! Be sure to congratulate them either here or on the radio when you see them! Also, we have some new staff on the forums. Be prepared to congratulate Yetione for their position on the community patrol and Saikyo for his new position as forum moderator! It's well deserved!
And while congratulations are being given, a special congratulations for Flash for being the first Staff Gold Star winner! His outstanding work for the radio and his DOUBLE 24 hour shift achievement has made him a clearly deserving first winner!
Next up, the staff have been discussing an idea and we think it deserves to go on trial. The idea is that there's a special subforum area where users can go to post a personal problem and have either the community patrol able to post a response to help them out. Something to keep in mind is that his is just an idea right now, but some of the staff feel it deserves some merit. What do you think? A few notes to point out:
-It's possible to make it so only you and the staff can see your thread (meaning no one else but the staff can post in it)
-It's possible to put users into a usergroup (on request) so they can see the threads and those not in the usergroup cannot
-It's possible to give this area its own moderators to sort things out if the site staff are unavailable
Just a few points to keep in mind while you think about the idea. Please, post your opinions below!
Now for news outside of Everypony! I'd like to give a HUGE shoutout to our friends over at UK of Equestria for reaching 1000 members! If you're from the land of tea and scones (such as myself), do go check it out and maybe sign up! They're awesome people and it'd be awesome to see you over there too!
Now last of all, some sadder news. For anyone who hasn't seen, Circuitfry (brony musician and organizer for Balloon Party) has run into some real trouble. For more information, click here. I ask that you go to his youtube, his tumblr, anywhere you can find him and give him your support. He is an awesome guy, a talented musician and a 100% through and through brony, so I think it'd be just pinkie keen if we could all give him our support.
His youtube is here: http://www.youtube.com/user/circuitfry
His tumblr is here: http://circuitfry.tumblr.com/
Go give him your support!
That's all from me this week! See everypony around.
