    Welcome to "Ask The Admins"!

    Have a question you've always been burning to ask the Smogon site administration? Here's your chance! For each issue of The Smog, the Smogon admins will comb this this thread, select the very best questions, and write up answers to be published in the webzine. Your questions may cover any topic you like, but remember, not every question will be selected.

    I hope you all take this chance to get in touch with us; we want to hear from you!

    I was gonna ask a very similar question along the lines of:

    How much time and commitment is needed to be an Admin?

    Would you consider the job as admin to be entertaining or do you consider it as a job ?

    As an admin, do you view Smogon as simply a hobby or as a job?

    Hmm I will reformulate:
    How do the admins feel about the competitive battling world that lies beyond smogon?

    I am aware that it is controversial, but needs to be asked.

    How is it that Smogon makes the money they need to keep the site running? What kind of process is it, how does it work and does anyone get the money? Along the same lines, what kind of budget is used and does it rely on this income?

    Do you like being a Moderator/Admin?
    Do you sometimes wish you were just a regular member?

    Do you ever get frustrated at people asking how your job is like? If so, how do you respond to them?

    If you had the opportunity to make some substantial amount of money from this website, but at the expense of angering the majority of our active, respectable members (say we merged with Serebii or something, I don't know), would you do it?
