Communication is important, especially in what regards staff members. In my opinion, not only concerning board issues, but also in general. And I don't mean only with some of the staff members, and not necessarily with all of them in conference, but... in general. And... talk, ie online - yahoo, skype, facebook, whatever you have. Not "to do lists" sent by e-mails. I am talking with my moderator almost every day on yahoo, and I like this. But with my co-administrator and with my coding and graphics moderator I seldom talk (well, timezones suck too), and I feel we should talk once a week preferably, or if not possible, at least once at two weeks. What do you think? Sometimes I feel... strange, why am I needy to talk to them when they obviously aren't? My need for communication might be interpreted as clinginess, or overbearing, or something… if the others obviously don’t need it as much. But, at the same time, why do I have to I talk with other people from other RPGs about characters and plots they are only reading about, when it should be my staff to be interested in this kind of discussions?
