[MUST READ] New managment of AH

Post by Ben on 2010-11-10, 16:59

Hey there!

My name is Ben and I'm the new head administrator of Advertise Hotspot. I'm here to bring this place to the top. I will be taking over from Joel. He will be placed in another group, which will be discussed personally with him.

I will be making a few minor changes to the forum over the next week. This will bring AH to the top! Please, PM me if you have any questions, I'm here to help!

I know this may come as a bit of a shock, but trust me it's all for the best!

Thanks,
-Ben.

Ok, thanks for the news, Joel. Sad

And welcome Ben! Very Happy

And no offense Joel, but it really would have been better to give a heads up to the community beforehand. This comes as a MAJOR shock to some. Even a few staff members....

So wait, Im a bit confused.

You say you are the new head Admin, Ben, and it seems as though you have complete control over the site now especially considering you said you are "taking over from Joel and he shall be placed in another group", yet Joel says he is still "officially the owner". :/

So what exactly has happened? Was AH purchased by Ben, or did he simply purchase "control rights" over the site?

Who is the "top guy" right now? Ben or Joel?

Joel will be owner, and still have admin abilities.

He will lets say, still be the big cheese, but I will be head admin. Taking over what Joel does, but he will still have power over me?

Well Ben feel free to not answer this question if you think it is too personal, but did you purchase your current "Head Admin" position from Joel?

I find it odd that he would just recruit someone out of the blue to take over the day to day runnings of the forum instead of simply giving that job to one of the trusted and proven Admins already here on AH (Cafetin, Micro1000, and Phio69).

Simple. Joel wanted money.

I'm not making rude comments, I'm just telling you that that is the only reason why. Or else he would've given it to another admin.

I'm not calling him greedy, I would 100% do the same thing he's doing

EDIT: One question. If Joel was selling the forum, why does he have more power than you then? Shouldn't you be the owner?

Thing is that your staff are questioning you in public which is not very professional, you should have had staff topic to get everything out in the open that way all you staff would be on the same page and be able to back you 100% in public.

I don't think people are actually going to leave, they are just shocked because this happened so suddenly.

AH is still the same site, we just have a new person in charge.

Congratulations Ben!
You question Ben's ability as an administrator here?
Don't. Once you get to know him, you will realize what a great guy he is, and he is a great administrator, who could really do great things for AH, even better than what Joel has done here. Don't question him, I really think Ben can get the job done. I will be more active now as well.

Good luck, Ben!

Eh, at first even i got confused.. but then, its alright. Ben or Joel unless someone has the ability to run the forum ( as is, or better than it is now) . there's no problem to the forum or anyone.

All the Best AH and Ben Smile

I think they are just surprised that Joel is still the real owner and that ben payed money for it.

What I think is that this thread should be locked and further staff discussions to be held in the staff room, ofcourse, members can get their concerns addressed by Joel or Ben via the PM system!

*Is a bit shaken up as I am sure many others are*
