Hello, 2787cmt here. I have something very simple to say, limit the amount of staff on your forum. Having too many staff members is bad and completely unnecessary. When I say limiting your staff, I mean you should only have a few staff members, depending on the size of the forum. You wouldn't want 10 members, and 5 staff members. That would be no good. A good ratio would be 1-2 staff members for every 50 registered users. Or, for every 5 active users (users that log at least every 24 hours), have 1 staff member. As Luke said in his "How to pick staff" article, you should only pick staff who you know will help the forum. I completely agree with that. Not in just posts though. Regular users can post. When adding staff, you should think "Do I really need another staff member on my forum?" and "What can he or she benefit to my forum?" If you think "No," to the first question or "Not much," to the second question, that user should stay a regular member and not join the staff team. It looks horrible for a forum to mainly have active staff members, it just looks really bad. It can scare away potential new users. Plus, it puts your forum to a definite security risk. Having too many staff members is bad. For every staff member, risks of your forum getting cracked rise. So, having too many staff members is a big no-no for the well-being of your forum in the precent and in the future. So, you will be sure to no longer adding excessive staff members to your forum and start limiting your staff team, right? It's your choice as an administrator whether you want 1 staff member or 10 staff members. Make the right choice.
