I see he's not an admin anywhere, which is shocking, and I don't see anything publicly said about him.

EDIT: now looking at the Forum Leaders page, and Shiny? When the hell did this happen?

Shiny has some personal stuff going on right now so she's kind of busy tbh.

Del Murder, well, you know as much as I do about that. He hasn't said anything about it yet but it seems he de-admined himself.

Times are also a-changing. Staff has been dwindling down since the dawn of this new decade. No more will we see the likes of 10+ moderators, the focus has recently started being on both the front site and the forums, rather than mostly the forums with the front site being a second thought.

Oh, Flying Mullet's totally right. This is all your goddamn fault, Wes!

Perhaps he got fed up. It's not too surprising considering the way him and Shlup completely disagreed with each other in my last thread. In which case, more power to Del. :p

Maybe it's because you were being a bitch. Like, a mega-serious bitch. You were on ShlupQuack level of bitch, dude. It's like having a negative area in the observable universe, it doesn't exist, but you made it happen. That's how big of a bitch you were being, you broke the physical laws of universe; you didn't break math (because negative areas are possible), but you broke physics.

I must thank you, though. I don't think it's a secret how intensely I dislike all of the Forum Staff.

I don't see how one member complaining for a couple of days would cause him to run away from a position he's held for years. It seems far more likely that, if he hasn't stated anything publicly or reasons in Staff (according to Psy), it was based on internal disagreements. Which makes a lot of sense considering the ridiculous nonsense that has been going on recently.

EDIT: it's also a sad state that further criticism was apparently cut off in the other thread. But I do think Del's resigning was related.

You never answer my calls anymore. I swear, you're acting just like my girlfriend!

In all fairness you two were just going into this pointless circle of argument. You should know as well as any of us that the Forum Staff are idiots, and most of the time, they just don't defend themselves very well, but that doesn't stop them from acting irrationally.

And don't you dare blame me for this. For every other staff issue Del and I have been on the same team and have basically always agreed. Del isn't the kind of guy who would flounce just because he and I disagree on one thing. It's more likely he's just getting sick of of all the cons of being an administrator (ex: dealing with you) and wants to focus on his family (ie: Miriel and the dogs). I certainly understand how he feels and, having been on staff with him for so long, have seen this as a possibility for a long time.

Why am I not surprised at you blissfully ignoring evidence. Psy just said he didn't say anything in Staff before deadminning himself. And the timing, you and him getting pretty heated arguing in my Feedback thread? What about ALL of the huge number of staff resignations? This sure seems more than a simple coincidence.

I hope he......it is a he isn't it ? comes back.

Of course no one agrees with anyone all of the time.

I find this site curious as you guys and gals....well.....I never know when you are serious or just being facetious.

Whether you actually believe what you say or are just being mercurial.

Same goes with whether you guys like each other or don't.I don't know where the truth lies with that.

Still your issues seem to pale in comparison with those on other forums.

I think it's most likely admins here leave out of boredom or due to real world responsibilities.Just a hunch though.

Of course to see how you guys really get along you could make me an admin and see how well you get along with me.

That might make an interesting challenge.

I see Kishi provides us with his usual insight.

Your ad hominem dismissal backed with no argument is as persuasive as ever.

Including ones for the past month? I think you're overestimating the staff's ability and guts. They only did anything remotely significant ONCE, and that blew up the board and resulted in people leaving (see: Bleys).

We seriously should just all quit as the April Fool's. Someone find a reason for me quitting. I'm thinking scandal involving a Thai hooker. Or maybe my parents have decided adminning a Final Fantasy forum isn't a real job so they threw my ass out of the basement. IDEAS, PEOPLE.

Your computer, who you had a friendship with for a long time, has stated his true feeelings about you, and when you declined his offer for sex, he raped you, so you turned your back on technology forever.

It looks like the staff is now trying to overcompensate against all the complaints about busy work. That or Shlup just got tired of doing work.

I have yet to hear about Del giving any reason, in staff or public, for his sudden resignation. It seems like the longer he stays silent, the more likely there was an internal disagreement in staff. I couldn't really blame him. The over-consolidation of staff has seemed to make them even more dismissive of regular members and more incapable of admitting any tiny bit of wrongdoing.

Raistlin
03-27-2010, 08:45 PM
And I just realized: speaking of "jumping through hoops," this so-called task is a perfect example. It shows NOTHING, which means the staff has already made up their mind. They just want to take even more opportunity to pull the strings of some members for the sake of increased activity, because once the competition's over suddenly everyone doesn't care as much anymore. Give the staff's blatant inconsistencies and disrespect, it's no wonder why at this point.

Man, are you guys serious? I mean, "Post 12 threads" "Decide with a team who you think wouldn't be a good CK!", both is jumping through hoops, both the staff can disregard, both will have presumed notions and favorites. Next time the staff needs CK's they should just do it the old fashioned way, apparently we have people who don't enjoy fun.

Yet again you manage to create a strawman that has nothing to do with the actual discussion.

EDIT: also, wtf was this task even supposed to prove? How is it NOT just jumping through pointless hoops?

Goldenboko
03-27-2010, 10:01 PM
My point; it's all pointless jumping through hoops when you really think about, not just this event one, but the last two as well. It's not something to freak out over, really. You like the way Del did it, because it had the appearance of you mattering. But I can guarantee without knowing exactly what's been said in the staff forum, in each of these CK events, some people have come in with no chance, others as favorites, others as undecided. It's a fun way to get the forum "involved" with picking the CK. This newest task is just because Shlup's pissed at people for being spoil sports.

Yet again you manage to reach up your butt and pull out some lawyer-speak without providing an actual counter argument. Suggesting voting for candidates is somehow an invalid form of selecting a winner is just stupid.

Now we're dropping this discussion in here. If you want to say something nice about Del then go ahead, otherwise this thread is getting closed.

I had no problem with how the CK competition was run until this became a Ciddies contest.

And since when was "not liking the way the CK is chosen" the same as "hating fun?"

Shlup
03-27-2010, 10:08 PM
Awesome. This thread is now completely about the CK competition instead of Del.

Not that it was really about Del to begin with, just more bitching from the fucking whiners-club.
