Please join me in congratulating Birkal and Omicron on their most recent achievement — they are both now members of The Smog Staff! The combined amount of effort and dedication these guys have put forward throughout the last few issues has been nothing but instrumental to the incredible success that our magazine has seen during that period of time. Very recently, a couple of spots opened up in the Staff, and I couldn't imagine more fitting guys than Birkal and Omicron to cover the positions. Birkal is in charge of the Arts section of The Smog as well as overseeing the entire process that preparing an issue for release entails. Omicron, on the other hand, is also charged with global responsibilities but will also be working closely with me on the technical section of the magazine. Good job, and I look forward to working with you two! If you're curious about how our Staff looks like after this change, and who should you contact about any area in specific, visit this announcement as well as this thread. Cheers!
