Now that I have had more time to think, I would like to point out that of the 5 admins, they have made 147 posts in the past 2 months and two of them made more than twice the posts of the other two combined.
DJ_Omnimaga made 822 posts.

On other forums that I have been a part of, there are usually at least to or three very active admins and admins are among the most active users. Currently two of the admins are pretty active on the forums (and so would be more noticeable to users that cannot access IRC), so that is good, but DJ_Omnimaga is by far the most active/experienced member on the site.
* shmibs hesitantly checks to see if shmibs is one of those two

Oh, I meant, "more than the other three combined."
But yeah, you and Eeems have the most, followed by Deep at 14, Angelfish at 7, and Netham at 2.

Hm, does that 10 posts per month CoT rule still exist? And yay I post as much as every admin combined.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I don't think so, considering 70% of the staff didn't post in months.

Do you need fresh blood for the staff? That comes well, Halloween is coming! :E

I wouldn't say that the number of posts define the activity of a mod/admin. If that is true, I would be quite inactive on P-C for weeks! ^^

By my experience, setting up the webserver and MySQL on a VPS is pretty straightforward. Unless you want to configure emails. That's not really straightforward.
oh god, email is such a PITA.....i just got jim to config it for me :P

Well it depends. IMHO, staff should at least be active to a minimum, better if more active too. Of course for the Coders of Tomorrow team it's best that they have projects in the works (calcs, computer, etc), but I don't think the Omni team would be interested in hiring staff that will only post once per month or disappear during 6 months without warning. If a member applies for staff without any will to participate and instead prefers to play Minecraft 8 hours per day, then he's not really interested. After all, the goal is to keep the site alive, unlike MaxCoderz and UTI, which barely had any staff renewal for years then ultimately died (although MC still hangs on, sort of).

[18:21:43]   Streetwalker   hey
[18:22:16]   Streetwalker   I got an idea about dj being always seen as an admin Tongue
[18:24:04]   *   pimathbrainiac  thinks we should hold yearly admin elections
[18:24:13]   pimathbrainiac   Democracy, people
[18:24:33]   Sorunome   lol
[18:24:42]   Streetwalker   lol
[18:24:49]   pimathbrainiac   well we should
[18:25:26]   pimathbrainiac   you become elevated in reward for being an active and productive member
[18:25:30]   Streetwalker   my idea was an smf mod that would display dj as a regular member, hiding his sig, avatar and post count and only showing DJ_O as a nick
[18:25:47]   pimathbrainiac   nah
[18:26:31]   Streetwalker   then add a hidden checkbox that forces people to read an EULA type thing before they can see his real profile Tongue
[18:26:44]   pimathbrainiac   lol
[18:26:56]   *   calc84 has joined #omnimaga
[18:26:56]   Streetwalker   well not really hidden but put it in the options
[18:26:57]   pimathbrainiac   no one reads the EULAs
[18:27:18]   Streetwalker   forced eula ftw
[18:27:24]   Streetwalker   not too hard with js
[18:27:33]   pimathbrainiac   yeah, but I always just scroll to the bottom Tongue
[18:27:44]   Streetwalker   force people to scroll to the bottom max one line /sec
[18:27:56]   pimathbrainiac   that would be torturous
[18:27:58]   Streetwalker   and make it short too
[18:28:07]   Streetwalker   lol
[18:28:08]   pimathbrainiac   still

That's why you put in a random nonsense line or two, "remember the word 'chicken'" or something and use that instead of a checkbox >:D

The ABXL forum software requires you to type a word buried in the FAQ and rules. Another forum I go on requires you to find two nonsense sentences in the rules too. So yeah it works. Unless it's buried too much and everyone complains they can't find it. (Kinda like the latter forum, much people complained they couldn't find nonsense in the text.)

I dont post nearly enough but i handle alot of stuff else where instead and keep everything running smoothly.

Staffing is handled by me and eeems we do staff reviews on a pretty often basis (I poke him about it about once a month typically) when we want new staff its handled. Requests for positions are immediately declined. we will choose you if we want you and will give you an offer. This allows us to put in people we trust and know into staff and keep our email down with spam.

As for post count I am not on the forum enough to check that. But i see the site is handled adequate  when i do come on so afaik the site moderation team is doing there job and so are the members. Thanks to those of you who do use the wonderful report button! 

any other questions ill answer them to the best of my knowledge.

Didn't you have issues with your parents to nearly the same extent as SirCmpwn and JustCause at times, though? IIRC there were times where you were grounded every month or so and could never post during summer due to that or various other reasons, but now that you moved out, will you have some extra time?

And yeah IMHO it can look a bit suspicious when someone begs non-stop for staff powers only a week after joining. Even when they don't, I think it's usually best that the team knows the member before adding him.

That said, IMHO I think that when 90% of the staff projects are inactive, it's time to look for new team members.

Something like that and its better to a degree now i just also have time to do alot more stuff so im always working on things. I post a lot on cemetech now as well as i'm leaning more and more towards hardware engineering and such and they definitely have a better user base for that. I stay on irc and I am always on that and I post when I need to but its mostly admin stuff lately. I hope to start some calc projects again soon just looking for someone to start a project with other then iambian he has not been around much lately assuming life issues. and i just cant stay motivated
