I'll admit it was pretty fast. I fully expected to waiting a few days for a response but I still the think the process is being handled fairly. Applications are still being accepted and considered so everyone is getting their opportunity.

How is everyone being considered when there are two hired already? If he expects one to fail then he shouldn't have hired them. If he expects there to be better, he should have hired them. It sounds really stupid to me, but I'm done with this as I don't care that much, just strikes me as unfair.

I don't recall is being stated anywhere that there was only 2 vacancies. Whats to say he isn't looking for a 3rd/4th member.

The News team has recently had a large decline in members which has contributed to some inactivity within the team. If this turns out to be the wrong decision I take full responsibility for it but with Christmas coming up I wanted to try and make this process as quick as possible to try and hopefully get the new members to contribute news for the Christmas season.

Not saying I would have been hired, but I saw the thread yesterday and had planned on applying tonight. I'm not saying I would have been any better of a candidate than either of the guys hired (I don't know either of them tbh), but Rufus wasn't spouting out conspiracy theories.

This is an example of sucking up to your boss so you don't get fired! XD

Whats stopping you from still applying? The process is on going and whats to say the news team isn't looking for at least another member. As I can remember the team usually ran with 5-6 members, and currently has 4, including myself and regretz who are only trial members anyway.

No, the application process is still open.
Speaking of which, looking forward to working with you.

This time, Rufus sounds absolutely right. Even if this was handled "correctly", I still think it was too fast. People also can not apply within the 24 hours given.
Let's not repeat ourselves, it was kinda unfair.

Applications still open? Alright, now tell me why would someone else applying be hired? Naith and Regretz have been hired already (even as trials only), which means they will probably do good and thus keep their job. This, for me, means that applications are closed.

Congrats to both anyway.

But nowhere did it ever state that only 2 people were being hired in the team. The news team recently lost Nat, Chris and SN so hiring only 2 trial members still leaves a gap in the team for perhaps one or two more additions. In any case if someone really badly wanted the job, they wouldn't just give up as soon as someone gets hired thinking their chance is gone. I really do urge everyone who has been put off from applying because of what happened to seriously reconsider and put in an application.

Forgive me but I am having a hard time not taking this debate personally. But I am, I am getting the feeling that people don't think that myself or RegretZ have what it takes to do this job.
