Default latest restructuring!

hey folks, i would like to announce that the very first thing we shall do here at musicbanter is restructure the staff positions. i have already let you guys know i was here on pay, and explained why i was here on pay, and it seems to have gone well.
so, i am officially announcing that the current moderators of this site will be made regular members and new paid moderators will be coming to replace them.
you have may already met chuck and dan. there are other members from the company that will be joining.

in total, we will have 5 mods who are here in different timezones, all of them are from the company, and all with direct communication to the site developers and admins. we are, in effect, administrators and moderators. we are sorry if this is not good news to some of you, and certainly the moderators we are demoting. it is in the best interest of the company that we take this route.

not only will we be able to bring your concerns and requests straight to the top, but we will be able to implement them as well. as far as the lower levels of moderation, we will simply update the rules to reflect what we expect from the community here. black and white moderation, we feel, is the best approach seeing as how we have so few moderator/admins at this time.

the rest of the team will greet you all, and within the next day or so, you should all see your new mod team!
here is to new beginnings!

we hope you understand that we needed to keep the current moderators out of the loop until we had go ahead on this. now that we do, we felt it was a good time to share the good news!

no longer will the website be ignored. the administration is now taking keen focus on all of its sites! we just need our own men and women in place to be the intermediaries.

Why do I get the feeling that this administration wants to shed the current MB userbase entirely by alienating them with changes, so that they can pursue an entirely different site with new members?

And why do they not just make a new site for this reason?

Removing the people who care most about the site and replacing them with faceless bureaucrats seems like a great way to increase its popularity.

this website is already established. we bought this website established, and although it is more established than when we got it, we now have a solid plan to make it grow.

we have heard the cries for years, and all the requests. we are acting on them now, in the interest of you all, and all our sites!

You can already plan on a substantial portion of the site quitting. I might just be apart of it.
