As we all know and understand, Tutors are individuals who are recognized for their understanding of the UTAU software, it's functions, and/or other aspects for its use (such as mixing). The blue username lets this forum's users distinguish between a regular user and someone who is known for being knowledgeable. As it currently stands, the forum has a severe lack of active tutoring staff, considering the size of it's user base. While there are tutors, who have helped on this forum by creating resources and assisting users, many of them are now a lot less active or even somewhat absent from their positions. Knowledgeable individuals, whom people would listen, are vital to the forum and critical to the betterment of the user's understanding. In the absence of tutors, many regular users have stepped up to bat. While this is fine and is how it always has been, in some cases you have the issue of an unknowledgeable user teaching inaccurate information and/or spreading old, deprecated information from untrustworthy sources. From the perspective of a user who really wants to be helpful and wants to see the betterment of those users, this forum is in dire need of new tutor staff and it would be in it's best interest to start taking applications to fill this position. I propose the following: That any tutor staff who is no longer able/available to actively assist the user base be moved to a new "retired tutors" section. This way, when/if they are on at any later date, they can still be recognized for their knowledge but also seen to not be actively tutoring. The suggested color for this would be in the yellow or orange spectrum for contrast against active tutors and other user groups. That anyone who fills an application to become a tutor should be tested for competence and that a required qualification is met. That tutors could also be classified into various groups. such as otoing tutor, recording tutor, etc. these can even be goofy/playful such as "reclister from above" or "microphone martial artist" (though those might be more fitting to place in their personal user title). This has been recognized by many of the forum users and it is no secret that this is a glaring error in the current state of it's operation. It would be in the best interest of it's users for this to be looked into as soon as reasonably possible to allow for quicker reformation.
