    Quick note that any matters pertaining to a problem with a specific user, including a member of staff, should be brought up with an admin via a private message on MKBoards or Discord. These are more sensitive cases that should not be broadcast publicly, and should be handled privately. Thanks!

    At least open staff apps again before giving them blue?

    This is probably a misclick by an admin, but that's also concerning too.

    Things like that aren't just done under the radar without anybody knowing why, admins will get around to explaining the situation as Mark said.

    Can you make the "Staff Members" tab only include Mods & Admins, since people seem to push for newcomer support why do they need to click a staff section and see MKU / WL staff members in the same area as mods, there are already instances of MKU members (idk about WL) being messaged by newcomers assuming they're a part of the site staff.

    That's now been looked in to and (hopefully) I've removed all people that aren't currently mods and/or admins. If anyone spots people who shouldn't be on the list suddenly pop up, let me know.

    Can all the "teams" sections be changed to teams rather than some still saying clans? Not sure if this was brought up but should be a simple suggestion

    MKW used to be teams and PUGs, but there wasn't a real distinction between the two, since PUGs were and still are allowed to play in WL. The argument was to put them all together under the name clans and leave it up to leaders to manage members and what they want their clans to be considered as. Also no one cares about multi-clanning in MKW for the most part, so the merge wasn't contested

    I mean why are they referred to as teams for half the games and clans for the other half. Also the term Clan has a relatively bad stigma compared to teams. I am aware they were merged with PUGS

    What's the bad stigma for clan? We used to call everything a clan back in the day.

    Clan general has a stigma to be relatively more immature collective gaming group. And yes everything was called a clan as the standard was set when to no surprise most of us in the community were 13-15 years old. That stigma comes mainly from Call of Duty when there would be "sniper clans" consisting of extremely young players. And regardless of the fact if people are aware of this stigma still seems weird half of games refer to them as teams and the other half as clans. Plus if you ever see any teams in a professional setting I guarantee you they will never be referred to as a clan. It's just another one of those things where it just makes a lot more sense and has no negatives to changing so figured I'd bring it up since it's an easy fix.

    I never looked at it that way, you have good points. I always looked at it in the sense of the dictionary definition for the term, which has a good connotation behind it ("close-knit, interrelated families").

    That being said, I agree there should be uniformity and I also agree that you would never see professional teams be called "clans", so we shouldn't interchange the terms on the front page either.
