    What this vote will accomplish:
    Change the points required to be accepted in admin applications to 30, the points required for AO to 15, the points required to be promoted to 20, and points required to be reinstated as admin from retmin to 20. Remind staff that their duties include reviewing and voting on applications, even if just voting neutral.

    Vote starter:
    Oakboscage

    General consensus:
    The current amount of points required is too low considering the amount of active member and staff, raising them will also hopefully encourage more activity.

    Just wondering, did you check any stats at all or did you all just vote on this because you thought it was a good idea?

    These are the stats from the last week, red means there were no admins online, there should ALWAYS be admins online and if there isn't then we don't have enough of them. http://prntscr.com/fvaazx

    There are 2000 tickets per week between 20 "active" staff members, that's 100 tickets per week a staff member has to deal with and we wonder why they burn out so easily?

    I think the point of this vote is not to make applications harder, but rather to have more staff comment on applications.

    They have the time it takes to reach 15 votes AND an extra 2 days after it reaches 15 because of the "on hold" mechanic which is there specifically for this.

    Most people didn't vote on applications once it hit 15 because their votes didn't really matter at that point. They would have gotten accepted whether they had 15 points or 20.

    100 tickets a week is nothing, there are some rounds where you have to deal with 50 tickets alone.

    I hope we don't end up in a situation where someone got all positive votes or nearly but it didn't tally 30

    If that starts happening and all staff have voted as they're supposed to, then obviously it'll be reviewed.
