Thing is, why are the customers only allowed to apply for staff? I mean 'some' customers subscribe because they want to cheat a game, nothing more than that. Give the members an opportunity to apply as a staff. I am just a member and I have 3 years moderator experience, not only that, I've been a forum admin on a forum of mine- IPB, tried vB and tried one month xenforo. Web developing and such. I know, customers are the only ones who experienced the hack so they know it better than members, but they just know the hack, not the forum. I even have a friend working for vB community, taught me lot of things, owe the guy a lot. Why I want to be staff? I'm killing time, I'm through with real life, I want to work on a computer for a whole time.
Some of you might think that I want to be a staff just to gain access to the hacks. Nah, it's cool but not interested also that would be great. Being staff here is a completely voluntary position so why would I gain access to it? I can be a staff and removed permission to the hacks you know.
