I think he means "New PWA member". Tig set up an application a while ago, but nobody has mentioned the outcome. When I saw this title, I thought for a second "What new PWA?" but recalled the recent (though, it's hardly recent anymore. Been long enough to be forgotten about) application.

The deadline was April 5, two weeks sounds reasonable to review all applications I think.

It's been two weeks now. I truly hope someone gets it that deserves it. Not someone who has been recycled.

Sorry for the delay. Got a few more applications than I expected so I'm still reading through all of them. I have a pretty good idea of who made it, but soon we'll have a team meeting and make sure there are no last-minute reserves from the rest of the team.

Whoever gets the PWA position, hopefully they'll answer ****ing support emails. Getting tired of waiting on a response.. The fact that you pay for Graal, you'd think they would have a way to contact them easier, instead of just ****ing ignoring you.

i would have put in an app for the PW review position, how hard can it be to tell people "sorry but your server sucks, BOOM"

i would have applied too since one thing tig said was that we will lose most our graal friends, and since thats already the case i'm basically perfect for the job.

I have chosen the applicant and while it has been unanimously agreed upon by the PWA, we've been waiting for clearance from upper-level administrators for quite some time before the applicant can be officially added.

That can be a tedious task in itself. It got to a point where I stopped thinking about it when HoudiniMan spent all that time tracking down Unixmad to add me to the PWA. Can be a long wait.

Let's see...


Stephan -- I assume this is meant to be Stephen? If so... I like the guy, but what has he REALLY done on Graal? All I know about him is that he ruled the graphic forums with an ironfist and did nothing at all while managing Zone. ^^
Kale -- Great guy, but far too inexperienced.
Chris Vimes -- Cool person, smart kid, but wasn't he power hungry/corrupt while he managed Era? I might be wrong, if so, forgive my ignorance.


Neither one really strikes me as a good candidate for PWA, but then again, neither did Xor or HellRaven. Bell ftw.

Speaking of PWA members, Twinny became one, right? Is he still one? If so he must be by FAR the most inactive one at his job for maaaany years. TSA did a good job as PWA until he got promoted to Head PWA, after that he was just another Houdini.

Chris was caught at least twice abusing his rights majorly, so yes I would say he doesn't deserve it.

You were caught abusing what power you had on GK CSTing/Scamming players on GK/Era. So you also don't deserve it.

I'd like to see Alfonso as PWA

no :o?

adding spawners to the GMAP to spawn money, spawning items to CST and maybe even USD (can't remember what I found on that). Also he knowingly let Exolia spawn for CST/USD. The recent thing (May 2011), he spawned millions of money for his friends BigBear3, Seeya, etc... He promised players items/money on Era for GK items. Tig let him keep the items he scammed. He received no punishment for any of these actions mentioned. Tig eagerly moved all of Chris's items to a new account while cbk1994 was "banned," so chris could still play.

And while just an assumption on this one, I believe he was the one who "hacked" into the bank system in the summer.

I don't dislike Chris, but he acts like TK (bloodykiller) and gets away with it sometimes.

And while I am at it. Gabe received his PWA position, after *I* showed Tig this information for showing leadership or something when I did everything on my own. Never understood that.

cbk1994
03-23-2012, 03:50 AM

I would consider myself unsuitable, which is why I've never applied, even before I screwed around on Era a while back. As I said in another thread, I'm a bad manager because I can't manage staff teams and can't keep a project focused on the target for extended periods of time, among other reasons. I also wouldn't have enough time to commit to it.

The new PWA member is not me.

And while just an assumption on this one, I believe he was the one who "hacked" into the bank system in the summer.
That wasn't me—the person who did it still had SQL explorer and used it to reset bank accounts. They no longer have SQL explorer, and SQL queries are logged now.

I can only speak for myself, although it probably rings true for most people. When I applied for PWA, it was because I thought I could make a difference. Figured I could bring something to the table that I felt had been lacking in previous years. I did that in some way in that, besides Bell, the PWA and overall support system in place had a tendency to take way too long to address people's issues (at least in my time since finding out the PWA even existed). Having absolutely nothing better to do with my days, I pretty much spent 16-18 hours per day, every day, fielding support. It wouldn't be anything for me to get up during the night and think "Just a minute checking support before going back to bed" and that turning into not going back to bed. I enjoyed it, fruitless and painful as it may seem to most people.

That said, I don't agree with or like the system Tig has setup regarding "Business days only" style responding, but that's what he thinks is best and I totally understand that there's not going to be an "on every day for hours upon hours" type person in every single instance of PWA teams. It's unrealistic and I only did it because my IRL job was butchering my hours so I had them to dedicate to support.

Because some of us still belive in change, foolish as it may seem.

And this ^

It's definitely a thankless job with few perks worth mentioning, not to mention the hate you get the minute you have any form of power and happen across someone who is completely in the wrong but doesn't want to face the facts and so decide to slander your name and your ability to supply support effectively, which then filters around people who have not had a use for contacting support but take it as gospel regardless. But, something keeps bringing you back everyday anyway.
