So as I've mentioned several places elsewhere: I've rejoined a site I loved, and find that I'm in love with again and likely to stay on for an extended stay. I used to be staff, but I've found out through trial and error that I don't like being staff. I've got the talents but it just isn't something I really enjoy doing. When I rejoined, I invited three of my old RPing buddies that I'd picked up in the year I'd been off (well, I picked up two; one is a really old RPing buddy). We then managed to contact another mutual friend who's looking. We advertised and got another old friend to show up. Then I contacted an old protege (she's half my age, which I never thought I'd get to type), and she's joining. One of the friends I contacted contacted two of her friends, and they've both joined. *breath* So that's like eight new people to the site. Which is awesome in many, many ways. New activity, new blood, and they're all good/great RPers. However, they're also all making new characters, and there's something a few of us have been noticing: The staff are really slow about accepting characters. Usually if they know the char is from one of the new people, the process is expediated a little. However, there have been apps that set for nearly a week (I've got the record, where my third char sat for six days). My close buddy had to wait three days for her first char, and she's on day three or four for her second one. The staff have been logging on nearly daily; I post with a lot of them (and a lot of them are my friends). But this is frustrating, especially when there's all these new people who are bouncing around and getting anxious to RP. It's unlikely that any of us are going to leave over this, especially with so many friends and RP buddies, but the anxiety is racheting. So now that I've prattled, like I do, I come to the question: Should I say something? I'm a member, and I don't wanna come off as snotty or impertinent or anything, especially as I've been staff on the site and been an admin myself. I think I already stepped on toes when I suggested signing up for directories (long story, different). It's just that I know this is frustrating people, myself included, and it seems to me like this is a strangely long time to wait. Am I perhaps overreacting? Any feedback or help would be appreciated.
