So I have seen a lot of heat placed on our mods and admins about the state of the forum; bugs, security issues, problems not being addressed, etc.. From what I have come to gather, our current IT team is the AIRC IT team. I would imagine that they already have a workload that is pushing them to the extreme without having to govern and manage this pet project of ours. We already have a Civic Asgardia section that seems comprised of current members, why not implement an IT section from our existing members? I have seen a lot of good ideas that would, in my opinion, help this forum, as well as boost current morale. Deadlines have been pushed back, or missed entirely with no rescheduling, or a very vague idea of when they might be implemented. I think if we had a citizen based IT that could develop and submit a finished, working product, it would be able to be put into effect immediately after a board approval. Merely transfer existing user data over. The Asgardian IT could be selected the same way our current Mods and Admins are, resume/testing of skills. We have 150k+ people, over half of which are just waiting for the word to help, why not start letting them help? We could pull a lot of the weight off of those who already have a lot on their plates to begin with. Just to clarify, I am not bashing or criticizing anyone already a part of the forum/IT/civic relations department, merely trying to lend a hand. The last I checked, there are no supermen amongst us, share the burden.
