    I'm confused as to how this is different from before other than you guys getting to pretend Robert's Rules of Order have any place on an internet forum dedicated to a children's television show.

    Basically, the difference is that the Alpha Council will vote on and make all decisions regarding the board, in order for their to be more of a variety of imput on such issues.

    It also eliminates the "moderator" rank as it was deemed outdated and unnecessary. The staff is now more streamlined in that we have 6th Rangers as Super Mods, The Alpha Council as Admins with slightly less power than Kurama and I, and then the two of us at the top.

    It's a way of making sure decisions are made amicably among the staff, to avoid fighting and other issues that have arisen in the past.

    It's honestly more for the staff, to make their roles clearer and more defined so they know what is expected of them and to make running of the board easier.
