Personally, I think that if you have been a member/assistant/seniorassistant for long enough in the Caldera family that you will be considered one forever. If Simon decides to demote a member or demo his plots, that is his decision for the good of the town. Upon returning to Caldera, the person's items and staff titles would be returned to them in most cases. As far as people not getting on often enough, most of us are busy with school/job/life and can't get on as often. This is one of the reasons I think it is good that we have so many Senior Assistants and Assistants. If we had only a few and they were all busy then there wouldn't be any staff to help out in town.
