Today several changes have been made to the BZPower Staff.Velox has been promoted to Forum Assistant - his hard work as a Mentor has earned him this job.Sumiki is now our newest Forum Mentor. I look forward to working with him as he continues to help our membership.Unfortunately, these promotions come as a result of some departures.Janus, a long time staff member and former Global Moderator, Blog Leader, and Reporter, has stepped down from the Forum Leader team. He's contributed a lot to BZPower over the years and I thank him for his help.Mysterious Minifig is also leaving his position as a Forum Assistant. While he was on the staff for less time than Janus, his contributions have been greatly appreciated as well.So please join me in congratulating our newly-promoted staff members and thanking those who are stepping down.

Congratulations, Velox and Sumiki! (I thought that something had changed about Sumiki's name--must have been the font color.) While I don't know either of you personally, it's obvious that you're among the most helpful members around. Sumiki was practically bound to end up as staff; it's probably a universal constant.And, of course, thanks to Janus and Mr. Minifig. It's going to be rather odd not seeing Janus as a moderator--I don't think I've ever not seen him as staff!

Congrats Velox!! Maybe now you can do even more Library work. XP Also congrats to Sumiki; I've seen you around, submitting some positive posts; you make a great addition to the staff. :)Didn't get to work with Mysterious Minifig very much at all, but I wish you well in your future ventures. :)Ugh I don't remember a time when Janus wasn't a moderator/FL. He helped me out when I was a regular member, and then when I became a moderator, we constantly fought over who did the most work in the Library. I love you, Janus. <3

Didn't get enough of a chance to get to know you guys. :crying:Also, wat the cracker baskets, Sumiki is a mentor now??IT'S ABOUT TIME.Srsly, I'd have assumed that guy'd be promoted long before I had been. Maybe now he'll be so busy with his new job that we won't get flooded with blog reports (not likely). More people need to be as pro-active as this guy.Now then, how to rope this guy into joining the powercast...

Congrats on becoming an FA.As for Sumiki, while we haven't really worked together in the TTV context, congratulations, fellow podcast member on your promotion.And as for Janus, it's shocking that you are stepping down after so long. I remember you being a Moderator even before I joined, sheesh.Farewell to you as well, MM.

Let´s see...we will go through all these in the order bossman posted it, to keep it clear. :PCongratulations, Velox. It was great to have you on the Forum Mentor team and I hope you will enjoy your promotion. :)About time, Sumiki! :D FM promotions are always especially good news to me, and this one was bound to happen eventually. I personally welcome you to the FM team, I am sure you will prove to be a great choice for this job and I look forward to working with you! :)Even though I barely know you personally, even I shall remember you as a great staff member, Janus. Best wishes for your future life. :)Same to Mysterious Minifig, whose promotion I still remember. It was great having you on the staff, and best wishes to you, too. :)These were all pretty unexpected, although the promoted people are not. Congrats to everyone again! :D I am sure these promotions will not pass by unnoticed and we will see many great contributions soon.~Gata. ;)
