Something I just noticed: in August 2014 Dragoneer reappointed someone who was an admin several years ago:
So yeah, a few people have already noticed, but I've returned to being an FA Administrator. HOWEVER, I've only come back to the administration temporarily. I've come back to the team to help with some behind the scene stuff, and will be on probably only for a few weeks (maybe a bit longer, I'm not sure).
The reason I'm not staying on longer is because I have a lot to focus on in real life. I've been desperately trying to find a new job as I have no income at the moment, so.. once I get a break, I have to put everything into that new job. I'm hoping I'll have one real soon, especially since there's a few things looking up but.. ugh.. it's been really tough for some reason this time [...]
However, as far as I know there has been no noticeable decrease in the amount of people complaining in public about their TTs not getting answered and Kyoujin, far from being an admin for a few weeks only, still is an admin.
When I was an admin in 07 to 08, Kyoujin, whether it was IRL circumstances or anything else, was completely ineffective and disconnected. In a good month he answered a few of the easiest trouble tickets and never seemed to be aware of what was going on. However, he did have the great virtue of never criticising or standing up to Dragoneer.
I wouldn't be surprised if Dragoneer has actually forgotten about re-appointing him at this point, since Kyoujin isn't listed on the staff page and I doubt he's done much.
Reappointing people like that is a sign that Dragoneer is both desperate for staff to help with FA's dismal response times, but also how he sabotages himself by only tolerating ineffective people who won't rock the boat or dare to criticise or stand up to him.
I see from one of Kyoujin's journals that he has a chronic health problem, which I think is sad and I sympathize, and which probably explains his lack of activity but I think people with chronic health problems which affect their ability to admin a website shouldn't be being appointed as admins in the first place.
