Before we had:
Community Staff, Volunteer Section Leaders and Volunteer Team
We used to have:
Community Team, Section Leaders and Support Team
And before that, we had:
Admins, Supermods and Mods

Red people = Paid Employees of TSR
Cyan & Purple people = Not paid employees of TSR




Acaila was a mod from November 2005 - October 2006; and a Supermod afterwards until July 2009

pig became a mod in January 2005, progressed to supermod in May of that year and became an admin in October 2005 - he left in April 2007

J joined TSR as an admin in November 2006 and stayed until 2013 (replaced by @Captain Jack)




There was some drama in 2007 which resulted in pig leaving. Something about PMs being looked at by other people I think. Acaila and J were involved in the skirmish, hence the fault emojis.

Lots of people liked pig and what pig had done with the site (bit of a technical wizzkid) and so a lot of the featured he'd created were site plugins from pig. When he left, he took his plugins with them. And many TSR users were sad about those missing features hence....

Pig being a technical wizzkid means that certain problems were blamed on pig not being there to solve them - hence the cockup emoji.

aaaahh that's cool - thank you! :awesome:
pm's being read though :shock:
I'm guessing the Arcade and the fancy Eurovision voting thingie which was around a few years ago (I heard this made the site go a bit dodgy) were Pig plugins as they don't exist anymore :nah: :ahee:

I wonder if any of them still use their accounts...
