NEW ADMINS ANNOUNCED
« on: September 15, 2020, 11:08:08 AM »
Alright guys, gals and nonbinary pals! It's the long awaited announcement about who will be taking over as admin.

I'm not gonna beat around the bush and keep you in suspense, @truce. and @cygnus will be Bearbones' new admins!

The decision was a difficult one, but we believe that they have the dedication and vision necessary for the job. I have the utmost faith in them, and I will rest easy tonight knowing they're backed up by some truly phenomenal people that will help them steer this site to greatness.

While initially I had said that only Crows and I would see the votes for the direction of the site, we realized that doing so would go against all we've promised and set the new administration up for failure. We promise you transparency, change, and a voice, but by not revealing the votes we make this whole thing theater at best and a betrayal at worst. Who voted for who will still remain confidential - voters were promised privacy, and we still want to honor that. But the results from the votes of nine individuals preferred, in this order, A, C, and B.

Bearbones has a new administration, a new upper staff, and while there are only two admins I have no doubt that those who voted for Finny will not be disappointed by where the site goes, because there is no reason why all of the ideas cannot be implemented.

Uhhh ok personal section I guess? in the "what's going on" section of this post I outlined why I was wanting to step down, and that's really what you need to know. I'm leaving bearbones, though both myself and Crows will be available to the current team if they require ye olde farte's guidance. All staff-related concerns should be sent to Cygnus, Truce and their team. For the first time in three years my inbox is closed to staff/bb things.
Chatting or plotting on discord though? Hell yeah!

thank you, and congrats to truce as well! i have every faith in her!

bryne thank you so so much for what you have done for this site over the past few years. it hasn't been easy, it hasn't been pretty, and you've gone through hell and back, both onsite and personally, and i couldn't have asked for a better predecessor. you're a role model to me and i will do my best to honor what you've left behind! i love you <3

crows! (if you see this), i will be lucky to be half the admin you were! thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for taking the time to ensure that we are prepared for the job! your administration was an iconic one and i hope i make you proud! i love you <3
