Happy Holidays & Staff Break
Happy Holidays Spectres!

It's been a quiet second half of the year for the Staff, as we haven't hosted meetings for a few months, but as we near the end of the year comes a revival and desire to see 2015 be even more prosperous than 2014 was--and it was a great launch year for GOtV. We tripled our Community numbers and are closing the year at 5500+ members! Congratulations and many, many thanks to all of you members who have made our Archive what it is today. We are so grateful to you and for you.

We on Staff will begin hosting meetings again in January of 2015, as we revisit the Archive and Community and see what we can do to continue to provide all of you with inspiration and a welcoming Community to call home for your writing. We hope you've found good stories, a welcoming Community, and helpful Staff through 2014, and consider this our dedication to carry that into next year.

It is time, however, to continue our annual tradition of Staff Break. From December 23rd through January 6th Staff members listed in the Supervisor and Manager groups will be on holiday break. This is something Felina and I, as site owners and Executives, are carrying over from last year to do for our Staff members in thanks for all the hard work that they do for all of you, and for us, on a regular basis. During this time, Supervisors and Managers will be on GOtV as members and authors, rather than having to be responsible for the daily upkeep and supervision of the Archive, Forum, and Community in general.

We are asking that you as a Community are respectful of this break, and to show your support of our hard-working Staff by remaining understanding and respectful during this time period.

This does not mean that Submissions will close, or the site will be neglected or will go unmanaged.

Felina and I will be here still, as we always are, and we are not closing Submissions so that our Community can still be active during the time off work and school. Feel free to continue submitting your stories as usual.

As a refresher from last year, here is what will be put on hold during Holiday Break:
*Site Suggestion Implementation
*Contests
*Staff Meetings
*Supervisors and Managers as first point of contact

This means that while you can still make suggestions for the Site, they will not be implemented until after break. There will be no Contest additions or discussions, and no Staff meetings. And lastly, though it is standard protocol to go to a Supervisor first, and then a Manager, and then finally Executives, during Staff Break you will skip over Supervisors and Managers and bring your messages/concerns directly to Felina or myself. Supervisors and Managers will be taking this time to relax and should not be expected to report to the Site for their usual duties.

Short of submissions and site maintenance, Staff Members will be attempting to enjoy their holiday time as much as the rest of you will be. Please be considerate of holiday break and understand that this is a time for all of you to be reflective and appreciative of the work it takes to keep the site running. We thank you in advance for being gracious while we attempt to have some time to ourselves to celebrate the holidays.

If you have any questions in regard to Staff break, please send comment below and I will be happy to answer.

We hope your holidays are everything you want them to be, and thanks for spending them with us.

Merry merry, Spectres!
