Didn't Jeff just specifically ask that people don't do this kind of speculation in the Mario party chat the other day? (screenshot from reddit)
I totally get the appeal of speculating. It's fun, I do it too in private with friends. But I think we should respect the wishes of the staff. If it helps them get who they think is best, it helps us as fans too
The site's old enough and we've seen enough new hires now over the years, that I have full confidence they'll get somebody good next time they make a hire.
