ShanniiWrites – Owner, Admin and Head of Staff
I’m Shannii and I own the ShanniiWrites domain. I’m the main blogger for the website and I set up, pay for and maintain the behind-the-scenes stuff on the forums. Plus, I’m in charge of getting funding, advertising and updating the forums whenever we need to. So whenever you make a suggestion for a new feature, I’m the one who has to go frantically looking for how we can implement it.
Of course, I’m the main authority that people can go to on the forums. That means that if you have any trouble with the moderators, I’m the person to send a message to.
As such, I kinda stay out of the forum disputes. I don’t flag, suspend or silence people unless it’s absolutely necessary because I want to make sure that you all have someone to come to if you have a problem with the way our mods are doing things.
But that does mean that my word is final. I can remove a flag if I disagree with something the mods have done, but if I agree, you’ve gone to the head of the company about the issue, unfortunately. Of course, I will listen to your side and discuss the issue with the moderators. Plus, I’ll check the staff notes to make sure that I get a full picture of the issue.
The head of the moderation team is @ChaoticDeluge. He’s the one who’s most likely to deal with silencing, flagging and suspending etc. He also knows way more than I do about where to put posts. I’ve got lots on my plate running things from the back end, so he sorted all of that out for me.
Other than staying out of disputes until someone messages me, I’m also the person to come to if you want a name change or if you have any broader questions about what goes on in the forums. I’m on as much as I can be, but I’m on British time, which means I might not be around for a few hours when you might want me to be.
If you have any questions or issues, don’t be afraid to contact me!
