A few words from your founder

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 25, 2012, 7:04 AM


Alright, I'm not gonna be nice here. I'm gonna be straight forward with what I have to say.

The voting for the holiday contest was fucked up. Terribly. There were deviations missed during voting and I barely had any of the admins help except for a select few. I'm gonna be doing what I can to make up for the fuck up, but I can only do so much. =/ I'm sorry about this guys. Things have been tough for me and with the little help that I've been getting, it's only harder.

For the next thing I'd like to say is this:

I want new admins. But I'm gonna strict about it.

I want someone that can vote at least once a week. If you're in school, I want to know that. If you're always on: that's better. If you have any vacation time coming up, or if you become an admin, when you'd have a vacation. I want to know if you are willing to help with prizes for contests. Points, artwork, writing-anything. Let me know.

If anyone is interesting, please NOTE ME: maakurinohime and I will take it into consideration.

With that said, I'm out of here.

We really do apologise to our members for an issues. Things haven't gone as well as we hoped, as you can see maakurinohime is pretty disappointed, as no doubt some of our members might well be.

We're only human, and mistakes do happen occasionally. It's unfortunate that things on the administration end have not been running as smoothly as we would like. A little while ago there was another call out for more admin (it's when I came on board), and we thought the additional numbers would solve any problems.

However, the old saying 'quality over quantity' has many merits. Our admins haven't done anything 'wrong' or 'bad', it's just that many have not actually been /here/ to support the group as much as we need them to. I believe this is more an unfortunate result of circumstances (we all have real life concerns which may call us away from time to time), however the problem does deserve some attention.

I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who can truly give this group the attention it deserves(which doesn't have to be a huge amount, as mentioned above, just checking in once a week would be enough) to message maakurinohime about being elevated to the status of admin.
However if you're unsure that you are capable of meeting this requirement then this probably isn't a job for you. We'd much rather have just 1 more dedicated admin come to us, than a hundred who end up flaking out.
