A few big changes today:
-We are making Discord Moderators into a branch of the Public Relations Team. Moderating our Discord is basically another branch of our Public Relations, so it makes sense to incorporate them as part of PR. And to be completely honest, they are functionally PR Team members already since some of them have taken the lead on recent events, so this is more just a visual update than anything else. This means that 1UPdudes, Adeleine, bebn legg, Eevee, Erik, Giftshaven, Ryaa, and Scrydan have all been made into PR Team members.
-Similarly, we are now going to incorporate Forum Moderators under the PR Team going forward. This doesn't actually change any positions for any current Forum Moderator, as they were already on the PR Team or are becoming PR members because they were Discord Moderators too.
-To go along with this change, and to act on feedback received from the Discord Mods themselves, we are promoting Ryaa to the new position of Discord Team Leader. He will have the ability to Manage Channels in our Discord, making it easier for our moderators to do their jobs in the server without having to get admins to handle back-end duties for them.
-Until now, FPzero and Impetus had split the PR Team Leader duties into two categories: Public Relations and Site Events. After re-evaluating the split roles, we decided that we overlapped into each others' assigned duties commonly enough that the split was not necessary. Therefore, we are changing the function of PR Team Leader to incorporate both roles, and simply having the both of us as two PR Team Leaders. This shouldn't have any functional change in how we handle things on PR Team, but it will now accurately reflect how we've been operating recently.
-Noivern is dropping his Discord Moderator, Forum Moderator, and Hack Moderator duties because he has a decreased amount of free time with his current job.
-Berk is resigning as Graphics Moderator, citing a lack of involvement and interest.

However, we thank him for his work as music moderator.
