Code Reviewer Report from DanielARP
- ArcaneJames, Dreaker, Soulsderfuchs and HolyShinx got promoted to developer.
- Personally I reviewed and proposed the dev promotion of Soulsderfuchs. The coding was well structured and they ended getting a passing grade for dev with a Resident Evil set. I thought initially the user would end involving themselves mostly in site-cleanup based on their interests, but ended up following up with a few claims already!

Site Cleanup Team from Infernox 
I am pleased to announce that a new team has been created to help manage the site-cleanup channel! Any developer is free to handle requests posted in there just like before, but the cleanup-crew role has been repurposed and turned into @CleanupTeam. These guys will be around to answer questions you may have about the channel and help coordinate any larger cleanup projects that may be happening. The current lineup has been chosen for their notable activity in cleaning up the site or general willingness to help out.

Meet the Team
Infernox - Team Lead

But What's Site Cleanup?
The site-cleanup channel is the place to report miscellaneous issues around the site that don't really have anywhere else to go. If you're a regular player and have been looking for a way to contribute to the improvement of RetroAchievements, this is the easiest way to do so. With that in mind, what kind of reports and requests go there?

-Report incorrect or missing information on game entries and submit replacements. This includes the game developer, publisher, release date, genre, and box art.
-Report missing hash information in a game's forum topic.
-Report duplicate game entries.
-Submit higher quality versions of a game's box art or icon.
-Submit hub suggestions or requests to add/remove entries from an existing hub.

-Report achievements that don't trigger/trigger at the wrong time.
-Submit requests for new game entries. (You can do that here instead:
-Report spelling or grammatical errors. Please submit those to writing-requests!
