    Default Question The Staff

    In this thread, question staffers. You can leave your questions open to anyone/everyone on staff or direct them to a particular staffer, do it however you like. While this is part of a task for the poster giveaway, anyone is welcome to join in with the questioning. Questions can be from personal questions to requests for opinions. You can even test our knowledge with a trivia question if you like! Just make sure they stay within the rules set out for the rest of the forums. Oh, and I'm not going to say that the staff will definitely reply with honest answers...

    With Final Fantasy being such an older series, as well as shoddy games having been released in recent years what does staff plan to do to not only keep the forum alive, but bring in new members?

    And how will you deal with the inevitable consequence when most of not all of the returning members coming back JUST for posters leave?

    Do you have any other ideas than that?

    What is your favourite part of being a moderator on a forum of this size? Aside from all the laydeez that flock to you, of course. :P

    Boobs: We are looking to increase our exclusive content. As for people who leave, if they have participated in every area of the community and still wish to leave, there is little we can do as they are probably not going to fit into our target audience. However, the more our profile increases with each person, the better off we are. Exclusive content and giveaways such as the poster one will only assist us in this area.

    Shauna: The laydeez! Oh, right. Uhm. I just like EoFF, so it's kind of nice to be able to do whatever I can to help keep it running. Forums staffing is seemingly something that I enjoy doing as a hobbie in itself, so it's an advantage in itself to be on staff because of that.

    We have some other things in the works that I can't get into yet because they aren't in a finalized stage. It'd also ruin the surprise, but the plan is to get more exclusive content. We're in a better working relationship with SE than ever before and we plan on using this.

    Feel free to yell at us later if we don't retain a single member from this event, but we've worked very hard at making the event incorporate becoming a true member, we've done mock runs of the poster handouts between those who participate in the tasks and those who don't the difference is very noticeable - hopefully and that's how we get you

    We do. You'll see.

    After suffering from various sexual harrassment lawsuits, we no longer have the funds for holding members en masse.

    Tig: Oh man, now that takes me back. Uhm. I'll pass from now on, but snail mail is still appreciated.

    Pretty sure BoB tried that in the past, it didn't end well.

    Hmm I guess the question of whether there will be other things to get people involved with the site is already answered (and it does work, I was posting a little bit here and there but feel a lot more involved now)

    On a similar note then, do you think it'd be a good idea to carry on some sort of system for focusing on a different FF each day? Maybe having an "Eyes on Final Fantasy n" theme each day, the respective forum highlighted at the top, earn gil for posting there on the day etc?

    Bonus question since that's kind of a suggestion disguised as a question.
    Has moderating ever driven any of you guys to drink?
