Per discussion, we've decided to shift the term "Inactive Staff" to "Retired Staff" as it more accurately reflects this group of users.

'''Inactive Staff''' are former staff members of Bulbapedia that have, for one reason or another, been given the opportunity to return to a full staff position if they ever decide to return to active editing. Most of these users are former {{bp|Editorial Board}} members as they retain the ability to return at any time, barring a forced departure. These users have no power on the site, but are still considered a higher rank than a standard user. A staff member may be involuntarily changed to this status if they let their account go dormant for a period of time as determined by the current Editorial Board.
