Happy April!

As we approach the end of April, there are a few exciting announcements to share regarding recent happenings in the Bulbapedia community. First, we'd like to share some staffing changes to the Editorial Board. Since I became Editor in Chief, Kogoro has been in a dual role as Chief of Staff and Deputy Editor in Chief in an Acting basis until we were able to select and put a permanent individual in place. As Bulbapedia continues to grow, it's becoming more apparent that leading Bulbapedia is often a lot on just 2 people (the EIC and their Deputy). In the past, Bulbapedia has had two (2) deputies in place in order to balance some of that workload and we felt that it was a structure worth trying again. These two individuals I felt have gone above and beyond in their demonstration of leadership ability amongst their peers, project management skills, years of experience, and an over all enthusiasm and attitude that is an embodiment of what Bulbapedia's overall mission is. Without further ado, please help me congratulate abcboy and Maverick Nate who will be promoted to Deputy Editors in Chief!

With this, there is now a vacancy on the Editorial Board for the Head of Games position. The user filling this role has also demonstrated invaluable leadership and guidance around several of projects and game-related tasks and I'm excited to see what they will do with this new position. Congratulations to Tiddlywinks who will now join the Board as Head of Games!

Kogoro will be retaining her role as Chief of Staff fulltime as well so she won't be too far away. Please help me in congratulating everyone!

In other news, as we move deeper into Generation IX, the Staff would like to know how you all felt about our coverage during the initial Pokémon Scarlet & Violet release period. Please fill out our survey, and give your feedback on Bulbapedia's Scarlet & Violet coverage and your general user experience here!

Until next time,

Editor in Chief, Bulbapedia
