It should still work. It will only go to one mailbox (Mike's) as opposed to the many that would have been notified before.
The staff exists - it is Mike.
Let's try remember what Mike is trying to do right now.
He's trying to move everything to a new server.
He's sifting everything from the site emails, Pms, etc. and trying to look for new staff.
He's trying to answer possible report to mod post and mediate heated discussions.
AND HE'S WORKING THREE JOBS!
Please think twice before you PM or email. Unless it's life and death, I'd like to suggest we leave him alone until he has things where he wants them.
Obviously, just my opinion though.
