    Good day Y'all, it's me, again. Yes, I do understand that I'm starting to become obnoxious but bear with me.

    I made this thread to put some issues in the light as I think these are rather important. If my points are invalid, please inform me, I'll remove/edit them afterwards.

    It has come to my attention that new staff members have only about a week to become SS Verified. Though I do agree that a certain time period is needed to let the new staff members become SS Verified, personally, I think that week is way too short. Many staff members don't know how to screen share whenever they apply for staff and they need guidance until they do the test. It would be perfect if the staff team had a system that taught new staff members how to be up-to-date with the current screen share methods and techniques. This should be the job of the staff members that are the best at screen sharing, or call themselves ''Best SS'er EU''.

    I also believe that there should be some kind of mentor system implemented. These mentors will help the newest helpers go right on track and teach them how to be the best staff members they can be. Every new helper will be assigned to a helper (Preferably Senior-Mod+.) I will not make a full part about this as I made a two-page document for Swift. Feel free to go through it to understand what I mean. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1A09Vmv5KlnN2uAh9dyXuP6BIV1Mtr3stZiSmhG78hzc/edit?usp=sharing

    The current warning system is a bit too extreme and really isn't my cup of tea. It would've been much better if a demotion were to happen at three staff warnings, not two. I also don't think they should be removed from the staff team at the third warning. I think they should be demoted to a lower rank and if they receive another one, then they should be removed from the staff team. Removing from the staff team at their second fuck-up is pointless, honestly.

    Remove the Head-Admin, Head-Mod and Trial-Mod rank. There is no point in having those ranks, as having Helper, Mod, Sr-Mod, Admin and Sr-Admin is enough. Unless those ranks have any special permissions (which could be assigned individually,) then there is really no point in having them. Staff will eventually become greedy and want to have a higher rank than that they are supposed to have. Because of this, they resign and come back 2 hours later, just as greedy. When you have only five ranks, this doesn't happen. Promotions will happen rarely and the staff will understand that hard work will be rewarded with a promotion. This will actually work perfectly with the current staff team, as Helpers will stay as Helpers, Mods, Trial-Mods, Mods and Sr-Mods will merge into Moderators and Head-Moderators will become Sr-Moderators.

    Honestly, change the entire forums and wipe it all while you're at it. Once Cold reaches its second anniversary, I think that there really should be a theme change (This one would work perfectly with Cold and it's only $10 https://xenforo.com/community/resources/vertiforo.5806/ (If Nick wants to, I'll pay for it myself as it's so much better than the current one.) The forums should also go through a reset, as it's nice to see that Cold has a bit of history, but I think that the second anniversary of Cold could also start the Cold 2.0 project which @Nick_0251 has been talking about.

    Move the Discord widget to the forum page and remove it from the home page. I know it's possible Nick, stop saying it isn't, I know that you're lazy and you don't feel like working most of the time because you're probably playing Fortnite with Daniel, but it has to be done.

    Summer is over, it's time to change the ''Upgrades''. As Fall started today, it would be cool if you made a fall rank. Make sure the banner is brown or really light blue.

    Add a chatbox, I'm actually serious about this one. No matter how much I ask, it keeps on getting denied. It's just a small addition to the forums, but it could fix so many problems.
    1. If a player new to the forums comes, he won't be making a thread asking for help when there is a forum box right there.
    2. On almost every thread you'll see two or more people going at it. Having a forum box fixes this forum as they can simply go to the forum box to fight. No more post farming, no more off-topic, everything is perfect.
    3. My complaining would come to an end.

    Please use the ''Discourage'' option on users that keep post farming, are obnoxious or simply want to get rid of them without making it obvious. This will make everyone's experience so much better.

    Make a rank for me that allows me to look at staff applications so I can actually give constructive criticism, thanks.

    I wish I had more to write but I can't of anything right now. thanks (me got actually high so i won't be able to write properly anyway lol)01

    Forums reset should be a thing. But, a lot of important stuff will be deleted at the same time. But, a new theme will be great in my opinion.

    Greetings, Etiu.
    I like your suggestions, but there are some flawes, like:

    1.
    You don't have to gain SS Verified in the first week;

    2.
    If you don't know how to screenshare then you can go to the SS Teachers.

    As a helper, you don't have to gain ss verified in the first week, but if you don't get ss verified you won't get promoted.

    There is an SS Guide, if you were a staff you would have seen it. But it's always better to learn from actions.

    Very nice thread.
    I really like how there are so many long threads recently.
    You got a few facts wrong though, but they are all great suggestions.
