Um, many of us DO have lives. You don't know what goes on in our lives outside of here, but nice ignorant remark. Laugh all you want like an immature child, but it's the truth. You can "lmao" all you want about it. Grow up.
Oooo testy, testy. I put lmao bc your "behind the keyboard" comment was clearly meant to be an insult to those who voice concerns, see them fall on deaf ears, and subsequently tell others not to get their hopes up. No one denied that staff members have lives. Staff can be busy AND my comment that they don't care about updating the forums can be true at the exact same time. To insinuate that my comment about staff not caring means I believe they have all the free time in the world and choose to ignore the forums is laughable (to me, hence an lmao where I choose to freely lmao... lmao)
No kidding. It would be nice to get more activity in the forum. Believe me. If I had the power I would work on some of these things, but it's all Joe's final call. I wish I could help with updates, username changes. Ect. The list goes on. Again, it's not my final call to make. Joe and the Admin call the final shots, and if they aren't active they aren't active.
Hence why I specifically mentioned Joe, and said "most of staff" not "every single last staff member." Thank you for agreeing.
When someone comes on here and claims that most of the staff "dgaf" I'm going to clap back because that's complete utter bogus.
So there are 21 people listed on staff (11 Mods, 6 Super Mods, 3 Admins, and Aquarelle who is just listed as "Staff Member") and of those 21, 9 have not posted in at least 6 months, with 6 of those 9 not having posted in over a year (and 4 of those 6 further have not posted since 2020 or earlier).
Of those 9 who haven't posted in at least 6 months, 4 of them are Super Mod or higher, with 2 being Admins. And if bobandbill doesn't post in the next few weeks, that will be 5 out of 9 "higher staff" who haven't even bothered to post in at least 6 months - granted 3 of those (2 being Admins) haven't posted in a year or longer.
So yeah, with over half of the "higher staff" and 2 of the 3 Admins not bothering to do anything, I stand by my original statement that "Joe and a lot of the staff dgaf about updating anything on the forums anymore." And again, not caring =/= not having a life outside of the forums (lmao)
If you care to see where I got any of this info from, I put together a lil table for easy reference:

***I fully recognize that not posting does not mean they haven't done something mod-related, but also want to mention that rules that are outdated, links that are broken, member concerns in this thread, etc. have not been addressed in a way that makes it seem like staff (more specifically "higher staff") care.
My big question is where has that complaining gotten us? Absolutely nowhere. Flooding this thread with complaints, suggestions, whatever you want to call it has gotten nowhere.
...that's exactly the point. That's why people are upset. It all falls on deaf ears where Admins are concerned. A lot of suggestions (what this thread is for) are things that only Admins can do. But telling people that flooding this thread with suggestions has gotten nowhere is exactly the point that I was trying to get across. And it's also the reason why others have complained, because if people are upset and want change, they're going to gravitate to a thread about making suggestions for the forums.
