Sadly, Lutr0 cannot be an Editor if he is an Artisan as it could be considered a conflict of interest. Beyond that, if he did chose to be an Editor and no longer an artisan he would filtered equally with the rest.
It's not that we as Staff have anything against Vendors, Artisans, or others wishing to be members of the staff. 99% of the time, they are great people who would most likely do good in a select position.
On the other hand, it could be seen as bias, or other illicit versions of self-promotion of site-bias to have those members on the staff.
