    We have decided to implement Xenforo's "Staff" feature, but with a small hack to change the name from "Staff" to "Council" to fit our model.

    On the Members tab, it will auto generate a list of Council Members. so you can easily find out who is on Council. It also means I won't be maintaining a manual list in Council News & Business anymore since the list on the Members tab will update automatically when we add or remove moderators and admins. You can see the list in two places on the members tab, the Council Members section (first illustration) and a list on the right-hand sidebar also called Council Members (second illustration)

    It also activates a "Council Online Now" list that shows in the right-hand sidebar on the Home and Forums pages (see illustration below). That way, you can see if a Council member is online should there be some urgent need to contact one. We do ask that you still use the Report feature to report issues and only directly contact a Council member to draw their attention to the report or if the matter is extremely urgent (e.g. a member seeming to be in crisis). Remember that someone could show as "online now" but not really be viewing the board (e.g. if they had their browser minimized or WC2 was on an inactive tab).

    Addendum: I note that, for some reason, only I show up in the Council Members list in the sidebar of the Members tab (second illustration above). Don't know why yet, but ignore that one for now until I figure it out. The other lists (Council Members section and Council Online Now) seem to be working. I've keeping an eye on the latter in particular.

    Further addendum: It appears that the sidebar has a limit of five names, so some of us are getting left off. Please use the Council Members section on the Members tab to get a complete list.

    And today's upgrades of the add-ons has fixed this. All of us now show in both the side bar and the section.
