Our staff are mostly from Europe (3 of the 5 Admin/Founders) and US/Canada; but the remaining staff groups are purposely split between EU & US timezones to try and cover a 24 hour period.Site OperationsAdministrators / Founder
The top level group was split in two in March 2015 with site administrators [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/user/11-daniel/"]Daniel F.[/url] and [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/user/34335-barney-t/"]Barney T.[/url] occupying the group on Neowin, Site founders [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/user/1-redmak/"]Marcel[/url] and Myself, as well as our American co-owner [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/user/2104-frogboy/"]Brad Wardell[/url] (aka [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/user/2104-frogboy/"]Frogboy[/url]) now occupy the (renamed from Administrator) Founder group. For clarity, Founder/Owner is the distinction, but for length purposes we kept the group name short.
This group consists of coders and developers for all aspects of behind the scenes work at Neowin, including image creation. This group has exclusive access to our servers.Forum OperationsColor coded from green.Supervisor
The Supervisor group was created to take the load off the admins, the staff selected (usually a group of no more than 6) are long term trusted staff. They are given administrator permissions and can make operational decisions without fear of being over ruled by the admin group. This group also has an ops forum and many decisions are talked about and decided between admins and supervisors with the help of developers.Global Mod
This group is another name for "Super Moderator" meaning that anyone in this group can moderate anywhere including news comments. Most Global Moderators are assigned a section to supervise, where they provide guidance to Moderators.Moderator
This group contains staff that are usually new to the staff and have been given a specific forum or number of forums to moderate exclusively, they cannot moderate everywhere so we try to keep this group small. They also have permissions to edit News comments. This group includes the Chat Moderators.News OperationsColor coded from red. News is submitted both in UK & US English, depending on the location of the poster.Senior News Editor
Head of the news team. Directs, approves and supervises all news activities.News Editor
This group can promote news stories submitted by News Reporters to the main page, and is responsible for quality control.News Reporter
This group submits news to the site, and in most cases is paid per article for the effort. This group is moderated by Editors & Senior Editors.Non StaffVeteran
This is where ex staffers go that have contributed a lot to Neowin. Not all ex staffers go here, if they leave on bad terms or simply did not deliver while on staff then they are instead returned to their previous group.+Subscriber and +Subscriber
