Q: Why is the "Answer of the Day" 14 weeks old?

The Answer of the Day is worth 20 points, by far the largest amount of points you can earn for any answer.  But it's been 14 weeks since the last time anyone was awarded this bonus.

 

How is Raincoats Boy in Russia supposed to clothe his people if The Cat is being so stingy with the points?

I awarded that AOTD. The front page stopped updating after that one, and for a few weeks after the points were still awarded, but the front page would not update.

Its a shame AOTD seems to have been stopped. It was a great way to keep new posters engaged.

We can all spot a five post poster who might become a 500 post poster. Upvotes and AOTD were great tools to keep things turning over as we waited for the next epic thread. Alas no more.

You're looking at it the wrong way, it was such a great answer it's been answeer of the day for over 100 days running.

 

The people who run this site are too busy making puppet accounts to ask dumb questions to generate hits.

Maybe the website is broken. Or no one cares to update it anymore.

Now the "Answer of the Day" is 17 weeks old (1/3 of a year).

 

But who's counting?

Now we're up to 18 weeks with no change in the "Answer of the Day".

 

This is one measure of how apathetic and absent the Admin is.

 

If only there was a living, breathing Admin . . . . 

 

Sigh.

As teddy said, it was just really such an amazing answer.

Scots said something about an aotd update glitch, don't listen to him. Fake news, people, fake news from the lying mainstream media.

The real victim here is me, who has been robbed of all the aotd bonus points since after the first day. Credit where credit is due, I say.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
