For your convenience, here is a topic all about our staff, including a list of who is on the Azurilland Forum Staff, some details about them, and what each staff rank means. This list should also help shed some light on what each staff member specializes in most and what they can best assist you with.
Firstly, here are explanations of the ranks:
Site Account: The official Site Account (Azurilland) has a blue name but is not an administrator. It is the official account used to make official posts on the site. Administrators: Administrators have the most power over the boards. Note they cannot change or fix most things on a coding level (site-wide), only essential board specific functions such as adding/removing/editing boards and editing a user's permissions/powers. Typically, they are best contacted for questions about the site as a whole, concerns about moderators or forum rules, or anything else that may need deeper attention. Moderators: Moderators have moderating powers, such as locking topics, warning users, and editing posts, over all forums. Most Moderators have their own focuses and niches that they're more likely to be able to help you with; see next post for info on that.
Non Forum Staff: Developers: Users with red usernames are developers for Curse. They are not technically a part of Forum Staff, but they handle the coding for the site and are the ones who work on things such as bug fixes and site updates.
Other colors: Curse Premium: Users with a dark orange username have Curse Premium subscriptions. Advisory: These are former staff members who put an exceptional amount of time and dedication into the forums, but are no longer actually on staff. They are able to see certain staff boards and are welcome to give input in staff discussions.
Here is a quick list of all Forum Staff. Please visit the second post for details on each staff member, including short bios for them, and their forum focuses.
[link to profile] Hello! ^ᆺ^ I'm Merushii — but please, call me Rin! I first joined the forums in 2014 and have been in love ever since. This community means so much to me. As a little about me, I'm currently pursuing a master's degree in physical therapy, and I have quite the soft spot for cats! I'm a writer, martial artist, and professional derp~
Forum Focus: I mainly focus on forum-wide moderation and organization, keeping the site up to date with news, assisting with event creation and and other activity-boosting ideas, and social media management. I am also the person to go to if you need to report a bug you're experiencing on Azurilland. Aside from that, please do feel free to ask me any questions about the website!

[link to profile] Hi there! I'm Regine, and I am a 21-year-old female in college. I've been playing Pokemon since I was ten starting with LeafGreen, though I used to watch my brother play the older games all the time. I joined back in July of 2012, became a mod in April of 2013, and became an admin in January of 2018. Outside the forums, I dance a variety of styles, sing in a choir, and participate in Greek life. This year, I'm currently studying abroad in London. I'd love to talk about my experiences with anyone who's interested!
Forum Focus: I mainly focus on organization of the staff and leading or assisting the creation of major projects and events. My strongest areas of the forums are Clubs, all Creative Boards, Games and Other Randomness, and all Pokemon boards excluding Competitive Battling. I am also a main point of contact for Azurilland's community podcast, the Azuricast.
[link to profile] Hey there! The name's Ben, though I also go by AT around the forums (it's easier than typing out my whole username--trust me!). I'm a second-year undergraduate student studying biology and Spanish. I've been a member of Azurilland for around five and a half years. I like to participate in most areas of the forums, so you might see me around no matter what your interest is, though my greatest Pokemon passion is competitive battling. I'm always happy to chat or help, so don't be afraid to contact me if you need anything!
Forum Focus: Competitive Battling, The Library, 1st - 5th Generation

[link to profile] Hello, everyone! I'm GokeyPokey, or Devin if you wanna call me by my real name :). I'm 28 years old and have been on these forums for over 7 years now. I've recently been promoted to Moderator of the Sun and Moon and Competitive Battling forums, so if you have any questions about either, or if you just wanna chat, feel free to PM me anytime! For a little bit about my personal life, I'm currently going to school for a Human Services degree, while working full time as a Telemetry Technicial at a hospital. (You know those boxes they stick on people that monitor the heart? I monitor those boxes, and make sure the nurses know when to check on their patients!). Hope you have a wonderful day :)
Forum Focus: Pokemon Sun&Moon, Competitive Battling.

Please let me know if there's anything I can help you with!

In my everyday life I'm a professional musician, avid writer, and artist. I'm a member and supporter of the LGBT+ community, so if you ever need something in that regard, I've got you covered!
