You will notice the addition of a new user group on the forums that is the "Non-Staff IRC ChanOps" member group. As its name says, it includes every forum member that are not part of our programming team but currently has operator priviledges on the #omnimaga IRC channel anyway. These people have no increased privileges on the forums in overall and are like regular members, but they have access to a sub-forum regarding the IRC channel, split from the hidden staff forum, which they do not have access too. This should speed up dealing with issues regarding #omnimaga moderation, the bots and staff changes.
The current people who currently has such priviledges in our channel but are not part of our programming team are aksnowman, Cooliojazz, Geekboy1011, Netham45, rcfreak0, tr1p1ea, TravisE (tev) and Tribal. Since aksnowman doesn't have a forum account he was not added to the group, though, and some Omnimaga meme has caused Netham45 to fall in a different one.
