    As some of you may know, in our present state we are not fully meeting our quota of minority users in positions of power. Since Cathy left, our entire administrative staff body is male (a rather large male at that), and jumpluff's decision to step back from the site leaves us with an almost entirely male site staff.

    The Pokemon Internet Site Staff Equal Gender Group (PISSEGG) have given us until the beginning of April to balance our ranks in gender. We need to start giving some serious thought towards what babes we want promoted in this community, and whether we'll be imposing any kind of dress code around the office.

    This thread is chiefly for you guys to throw out some ideas, hopefully a few photos (can we get natalie on board?) and generally come to some conclusions about which members of the fairer sex we want cooking our staff dinner.

    I can volunteer myself and become transgendered. After all, being gay is a choice so I can give it up at any time and simply make another choice to become transgendered for this noble cause. I never thought anybody would say this, but I want to become the next Cathy.

    I'd go for a complete sex change but funds are a little dry.

    Why not hold an open audition? Tell people we're looking to open up the site to non-contributors as well who are intelligent enough and ask for a mug shot along with a bunch of other irrelevant information. We'll accept all applicants of course, but we'll just choose what we need!

    If we added ck to the staff we'd definitely be adding a bitch.

    Lets do that. I need more people to hate.

    Aside from all the gender problems (like women even matter other than for cooking and sex), we need to more fully integrate the large sri lankan population into the site. the best i can think of is by adding more sri lankans to the site staff (or at least put them on the payroll).

    who wants to try recruiting aldaron to come back?

    Chances are if we hire more female slaves mods aldaron will crawl back to us. Knock two birds with one stone.
