News updates are sparse, and barely informational. They don't tell anybody anything about what goes on day-to-day on Neocodex.
Frankly, I'm sick of all this "trust us we staff lel" nonsense. I demand transparency!
So, here's a topic for staff members to pop in and make a wee post whenever they do something of note, to let you know if they're working on fun things behind the scenes, or whatever they want.
Non-staff can post too, of course, and query the goings on.
Please do remember, though, that the proper procedure for making a complaint about a staff member's actions is to PM them, their direct boss, or an administrator. "Naming and shaming" posts will be tidied out of this topic lickety-split.
Sweeney's activities in the last few days-ish:
Well, hosting the 100-post day, of course, and designing/awarding that award. (To 21 people, by the way! Uh, wow!)
Making/awarding the Burn Heal award and it's accompanying topic.
Gearing up to post the voting thread for Photographica.
Doing some behind-the-scenes reorganising of our archives, including making the old Contest Team information available to our Glorious Contest Leader.
Adding UStream compatibility to our media tags ( ).
Quietly working on some nifty BBCode for setting user-timezone deadlines - no more figuring out when to submit a contest entry by, the forum will calculate it for you! (If I can get it working... xD)
The Neocodex Beautification Project - sorry, guys, but the deets are Priv+
Collaborating with other members on an investigation into our most recent banned member (which involved accessing their PMs! *dramatic gasp*)
Voting on the current crop of Private applications! Oooh!
And the usual amount of messing about with ACP for funsies.
