    Shouldn't there be a special forum for the staff?
    It'd be helpful by creating a topic that the entire staff can read instead of sending PMs to each staff member.
    It could also be a place where things could be made private before making public.

    Staff, you earned it. But if it isn't a pain to make, please make a forum for yourself.

    Why? I mean, I read your reasons, but that's not usually what Staff forums are for.

    You mean a forum where you write stuff to the staff? That's what this is for.

    Urm....there is one.
    You just can't see it.
    We mainly use it to swap stories about the crazy stuff that our members do.
    (And the porn section is awesome)

    If you need to make a thread that almost all of the staff are certain to read....well, you would post it here in GBAtemp.net discussions.

    Over on NF, where I'm a Mod, they actually have a subforum where you can post threads that only you and the staff can see. It's for all the private stuff you don't want to discuss openly, like if a certain member is being an arse or if you simply want to vent without prying eyes. It's kinda handy and gets tonnes of use...

    You know, that's actually a pretty neat idea.
    Beats the hell out of us having to make new threads in our evil lair....err...porn section.....aw dammit, STAFF FORUM when a problem arises.

    edit: read it again. That is a pretty good idea. It's like a secret blog

    In a forum I was at, you could see it but you couldn't access it. It's a nice way to troll the plebs.

    If you mean a forum that's private only to staff, we already have that obviously (multiple ones even).

    If you meant a section only you and staff can see, I don't think that's possible on our current forum version, so it'd need to be custom made.

    @FiReFoX_7: Nope, that's a section visible to Admins and Wood fans.

    What a novel idea!
    Oh, wait...


    (I couldn't resist. We have them already. It's a pretty standard thing to have on a forum.)
    Keep in mind you're just a member, so you can't see it.

    I'm willing to provide screenshots at a rate of £300 a picture.

    I accessed it once using the GBAtemp forum exploit (just experiment with the URL a bit) and I found lots of cool stuff there.
    Like, "Petition to ban Sausage Head" or "Lets start banning for sig+ava size limit" and other cool stuff.
    But then a supervisor found out I was in that section and fix'd that bug.

    Why did I bother making this topic?
    I should've guessed
