Do you allow your members to apply for staff positions on your forum? Why or why not?

If I really need staff, I'll start accepting applications then choose the best candidate for the job from there.
I do have an applications pages that I made up and I only send it to those that are willing to join or when it's open. As an small not so active website I rather look on sites like forum promotion to hire. But not often that it's open.
When your forum or site is up and running and getting active members, you are usually better hiring from within. They know the site best, obviously enjoy and use the site, and will have a connection with members. Hiring someone from outside when you have members who could do the job may create a rift between members and staff. On the other hand, sometimes you need something special meaning you need to look elsewhere to find the right fit for the job.
