    The second one is the logical choice. After all, you would say 'Our team is great', or 'Our group is ready'. And that's what spell checker suggests with staff. It just sounds weird.

    I chose second but I change my mind, the first one is the more accurate.

    So I vote first even though I voted second
    mod edit - updated poll to reflect this

    Seeing as we're voting about the staff I said 'Turnip.' as it accurately reflects you guys. As for between the two main sentences I would have thought the first was the correct choice, the second sounds wrong with 'is' imo. However I am quite a moron when it comes to grammar and punctuation.

    Depends on the context I think, if you're referring to the staff as one entity doing something as a team then I think it would be "is", if you're referring to the staff as a group of individuals (the staff are all doing various jobs before the restaurant opens) that aren't really working in groups then I think it's are.

    I voted turnip.

    I guess yes.

    Ryan did not give us enough context.

    I'm just happy that 5 of you think we're fantastic :cheeky:


    It seems no-one here has watched the WAN Show before either. :)
