Hello, and welcome to the Orange Islands. The moderation staff here would like to ensure that conversation held within this forum is both sensible and enjoyable. As a result, we'd like to give you all a brief overview of who the staff here are and what roles they perform. If you're wondering about what the Orange Islands are all about, start off by reading this post. Use this thread to learn who to contact about aspects that are within the scope of Orange Islands. Stellar is the Head Moderator of the Orange Islands. He's been around on Smogon for many years, but has finally settled down to chill with the in-gamers. He organizes and works with the current staff of Orange Islands to make sure that moderation is done well. Contact him if you have any concerns about how this forum is run. Mekkah is one of the oldest members here on Smogon; we're privileged to have him. His administrator position allows him to perform any technical needs we have with the Orange Islands. He's also a fierce in-game competitor, so contact him if you're looking for a challenging run-through. Birkal is the co-creator of the Orange Islands (along with Synre). Jellicent is an overall cool guy who's always willing to pitch in a hand and help out. Contact him with any general concerns you may have. He's also the creator of the Orange Islands hub page, so see him if you're interested in helping out on that front. Layell is the founder of Orange Island Movie Nights, which have been a smashing hit over the past year. He's a creative guy who's always looking to make more friends who play Pokemon. Contact him if you have a spiffy new idea on something fun we could do here on the forums. Recently he has been part of XY sprite project which heavily overlapped with initial XY research. R_N is likely our most active moderator here in the Orange Islands. He keeps close watch over the new updates to Pokemon X and Y, and works towards moderating those threads. Contact him if you have any issues or concerns with any coverage that's coming in for the new generation. Mario With Lasers is also an old-timer here on Smogon, with years of wisdom under his belt. His overall attention to detail keeps us as a staff grounded in the rules. He serves a broad position here in the Orange Islands; PM him if you have any general concerns with specific users or threads. Solace has returned from her retirement as a super moderator to have a relaxing time here on the Orange Islands. She was a big VGC contributor and leader but is now looking to focus on the more casual gaming side for X and Y. As one of the original Orange Islands moderators, she can help you get into the community on the forums and on IRC. DHR-107 has been a driving force in the Orange Islands subforum with XY discussion as well as being one of the nicest users in the Orange Island irc chat. With XY well underway expect him to be a big part of all the upcoming in-game research. That's the staff here at Orange Islands. We're all here to chat and support this forum, so please send us a message with any comments or concerns you may have. We're always open to feedback. Thank you for your time; enjoy your stay at the Orange Islands!
