Our Social Media Team welcomed 5 new faces last month:
The Long Form News Writer recruitment resulted in 5 long form writers and 2 new members joining our News Team:
Last, but not least, 2 new Forum Moderators joined our team this past weekend:

We're always on the lookout for qualified community members who are interested in giving back to MyAnimeList with their free time. If you're interested, be sure to check out this thread—and read it thoroughly before applying.

I hope everyone will take a moment to give a warm welcome to the individuals who will now work hard for you!

The Social Media Team is getting vehicles? I've joined the wrong team it seems... All I got was a warm handshake and a cup of tea.

If you ask me, there should be more database administrators, not forum moderators, too many of those and not enough of the others.
Good luck for the new members.

So many people to news team which is really good. I hope we can expect some good news. I too think we need more DB mods. Especially for manga.

Administrators? Not going to happen. The three you see there have been picked because they've been on the site for a long time as a staff. This gives them good reliability as a whole that comes w/ a Database Admin and what they can do with those features (Account deletions, etc.) At least, this is how I see it.

As I suggested many times I think what we need is new mod ranks. I mean support mods for example can really halve the things DB admins do and then they can focus on others things like site reliability or DB problems. I think this can really help @Luna. I dont know if it is still implemented but Event mods also can make an impact for the site. Making and leading events really can help others mods too so they can focus their main mod area. I think @Kineta was the one who tried something like that but I dont know the outcome. Also more events are always welcome for users. I already send some PMs about new event ideas to @cyruz but I guess its still in debate.

As for current mods I think what we need is new DB mods. Especially for manga DB mods. This could help those "still pending" entries. Last time I checked they were many.

cannot the MAL developers do some automatic scrapping of infos to feed on the database for example

As a former Anime Mod I can’t speak for the current team but the qualifications seem to be a lot more specific than those of, say, a Forum Moderator, so it’s probably harder for Kineta et al. to find suitable members for the team. On top of that, DB Mods are usually recruited separately, so I imagine it’ll happen with the next wave of recruits. The anime database’s backlog seems to be making some progress these last few days, FWIW.
