100k uploads and community staff additions

We hit 100,000 uploads last month!

This is a huge accomplishment and we'd like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our uploaders for contributing and making this possible! We couldn't have done this without each and every one of you, and the staff are all extremely grateful and proud of what you've achieved. To put things into perspective, in the five and a half years that the site's been up, we've averaged almost 73 uploads per day. That's a new upload every twenty minutes! For those interested, here's a visual breakdown of these torrents:

To ensure all these torrents remain well-seeded, we're reducing the maximum number of Hit and Runs (H&Rs) users are allowed to have at any given time. As announced last month, this limit has now been reduced to 10 H&Rs. This means that if you have 11 or more H&Rs, your download privileges have been revoked. For an explanation of how to get rid of any H&Rs you might have, please refer to question 4 of our HALP! FAQ.

On a happier note, we're pleased to announce some reshuffling in our community staff classes. You may have noticed some App Reviewers floating around who were appointed about a month ago. They've been working consistently on reviewing our site applications, ensuring that there's a steady and healthy stream of new users to the site. In the past, applicants have sometimes had to wait months to hear back but since ARs been appointed, it's never been more than a couple of hours! For that, we have CYMA, Forevabronze, Liseda and WIRLYWIRLY to thank, so please give them a warm welcome to our community staff team.

Unfortunately, real life does get in the way of being a weeaboo at times and we're sorry to bring news that Carilious and runod are no longer a part of our Forum Staff. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for their work on the site though and we wish them all the best with their future endeavours. To replace them however, we're glad to welcome 10d and vault2049 who will be joining primarily as FS for Chat and Anime respectively! They've already been doing some work in their sections for the past week so please make sure that they don't feel unappreciated~

To round off this announcement, we've also got our second set of staff picks with a visual layout available here. We hope you enjoy them!
