Let me simply put this out there. What EXACTLY is it that triggered this topic to be made? Because I can assure you, this EXACT same scenario popped up prior. Why wasn’t it escalated up like it is being done so now? Why didn’t players report and complain, etc etc. Did they? (the short answer is yes, they did). Very honestly, this type of thing has come up before. I remember them coming up, being discussed and people walking off mumbling of unfair treatment but accepting things as they were. No change needed. They accepted the grey area.
Now! You have someone actually pressing to make it more standardized in the staff! That’s great! Be happy! You are LITERALLY getting what you WANT here (and still complaining somehow).
You say it’s unfair. Yes, it is in a sense. But it’s been brought up countless times with nothing being done in the end. So i’m really only saying, be happy. We’re working on it right now.
As for the staffing - yes, usually staffing changes more often in jobs. However, please point me in the direction of willing participants that you TRULY think meet the criteria you are looking for in an admin with whom is currently here playing (won’t up and leave out of no where, accountable, good with people and dealing with high stress situations, active, good with responding to players in a professional manner, won’t hold grudges, knows BD in and out, keeps best interest of the game itself over the individuals that play it, is unbiased in decision making, the list goes on)? Then to top that off, how many of them WANT the job? Have you known that Alexander has been looking for potential new admin’s for months now? Do you really think he hasn’t gotten a plethora of applicants? Why aren’t we swimming in new admin’s right now?!
As for admin’s being held upon by their job performance, you are correct. Why is it you think that Joe and Tom HAVEN’T been fired?! It’s not because they are the only ones left. It’s because they actually do a great job a majority of the time. Out of 40 some cases they get a month, 1 blows up exponentially. The other 39 were handled without an issue. The last 1 involved 1 very loud player that has lots of friends and influence and they didn’t get what they felt was their just reward.
It’s never good to hold 1 bad review over someone’s head and ignore all the good they did. Sure, they’ve no doubt made mistakes. We all do (I FRICKING PUT GALAXY 3 IN HAVOC ON TICK 8 AND WOKE ALEXANDER UP AT 6AM IN THE MORNING TO FIX IT). All admin’s have stayed relatively consistent in their own worlds as MANY have stated. You just decided to blatantly ignore that factor.
Now, you are asking us to standardize and we are doing so. What more is there to complain about here?
