After a very successfully vote, we have our first elected staff group.

Elected from Civilian are:
Decaff_42 who has been a Staff Member for quite awhile now and is famous for his amazing modding skills.
Jetskit who has served Civilian YS now in one fashion or another for 5 years.

Elected from Aerobatics are:
Varren who is uh, me, and I have served HQ for coming on 3 years now on and off and look forward to making that number a bit bigger.
And a new face - Kujo who has become very popular in the aerobatics community and will hopefully make a great addition.

Elected from Military are:
Bombcat, a founding Admin of YSFHQ and a minor legend around these parts.
VNAF ONE, a previous staff member who is respected in both Aero and Military communities for his outstanding contributions to both.

Congratulations to our new staff.

If I could disclose something - The main reason, from my point of view, this all happened from my POV when Kujo and a few others were a little disgruntled about how YSFHQ was operating, some of it based on misunderstandings (VNAF ONE's channels for the fly-in being deleted when they were only for the fly-in), but some I honestly believe as reasonable - (most staff having some affiliation with CVW-171st or something along those lines, The questionable past of Varren (as Calum, but i'm willing to let bygones be bygones.), which somewhat troubles me, but i'm beginning to disregard it.) I think with this new staff, consisting of both the "plaintiff" and "defendant" in this situation, should provide proper balance to the community.

I voted for Varren and Kujo, if memory serves me right, as to provide a balance in Aerobatics. I voted for myself and VNAF as I found that would provide a good combination, but I believe Bombcat (if he is to be active enough, my only concern really) and VNAF would provide optimal results- A Aspiring Leader and a YS Combat Legend, If you will. As for Civilian, I was going on what little I know regarding YS Civil stuff, and knowing decaff as a excellent modder and Jetskit being prominent as the CEO of Penguin Airways, I thought they would be a good combination.

I honestly hope that this recent rise in drama provides positive after-effects, and that it helps YSFHQ grow as a community.

Again, I give my congratulations to the New staff, and wish you the best of luck in your duties. 8-)

One last announcement to make, the Crew Chief for this group of Staff will be ... me!

Responsibilities are just to maintain efficiency and do some lovely PR, its not really a leadership position in any sense as I cannot decide to do anything on my own but it is a position I will carry out, efficiently?

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

I would like to thank everyone who ran for a position or voted. Regardless of your opinion on the final outcome, your active commitment to the future of YSFHQ demonstrates the importance of the task ahead. I know that there have been some questions as to my own activity, but I would like to express my full support for the more active, aggressive approach VNAF advocated in his campaign statement. I am eager to explore how we can combine the efforts of all YS communities to provide a more fulfilling online experience, and would like to point to Mahora's planned event combining combat and civilian style activities as a fine example of what may be possible.

Thanks to all you guys who voted, and proved that we are still a vibrant and exciting community! I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say we are looking forward to providing you with quality support and leadership as your elected staff team. This new time of transparency in our community is an important moment in our on-going transformation. We may be the few in the world who actively play a decade-old game together, but we are always finding ways of innovating and changing to continue having fun and that's what I love the most.

I look forward to serving you all and doing the best I can to make this place better!
