Brought to you by the AGT:

Okay so back when I first got manager, Gabriel tried to control me as he did Tim (which is why he quit if you didn't know). Well it got to a point where he was trying to get me to fire Katbot, my PRA of choice, and promote his Vimes buddies (Klayton and Stephen) to admin positions. I didn't agree with this so I talked with my team and over half of us quit all at the same time. This was a pretty big hit to the team, losing almost all of it's developers and PRs, as well as all of the upper admins.

Anyways, we decided to go out with a bang. Mind you this was literally 10+ staff. We set some gun prices in various shops to $1 and bought a few. A few cute commands were added, as well as some spawners. Of course this didn't last long. Our terms were met and we were back on the team again some time that night.

Well I deleted the guns I bought, as did most of the others. Well lets fast forward a bit. Turns out that Josh Scelus didn't delete the 17 s6s that he bought, and transferred them to his alternate account. Well neither Blue nor myself looked into this, obviously. Josh is a good friend of ours and we knew he wouldn't give those out or do anything to harm the server. Keep in mind that this was after learning that we returned to the team, originally his plan was likely to distribute.

Someone, not saying names or anything, quit the team recently and decided to be a complete tool and take these logs of Josh and I buying these guns and send them to the PWAs. Turns out the logs of me deleting mine seemed to be conveniently missing. Cute. Well Mr. Big Bad Gabriel came requesting a meeting and then I got harassed by the PWAs for a good 30 minutes before they told me they were going to place me on some BS "indefinite suspension." I decided, **** that, and quit. What the PWAs don't seem to understand, is that changing a server's manager as often as they just love to do on Era, kills the flow of things and the server in general a little more each time.

It's clear to me now why Era is not as good as it could be, it's so limited. Even as manager, you don't get the right to hire anyone you want. That was my biggest problem with Gabriel originally, it was "Hey can I hire 'x' as this?" He would reply "No, they don't have the best track record from my experience." Then after some discussing, it would end with something along the lines of "It's your choice, but if you hire them I won't make your management easy for you." Tim can back me up on that one for sure. I thought that would change when Tig became Era's PWA. Lolno. A little more freedom, but alas the same ending. The whole job is really overrated for the amount of crap you get. I was just one of those people who played Era for a long time and truly thought I could make a difference. Guess not.

All in all, I don't really want to portray Tig as a bad guy. He really isn't, he's probably one of the most calm and understanding high ranking players on this game. Of course I didn't agree with some of the things he asked of me, but that's normal for a employee to boss relationship. Gabriel is the one I cannot stand.

Anyhoo, I know I said I wasn't going to say names, but it's obvious who did it from the messages above.

Good job Blue, you've managed to kill Era that much more. Hope you're proud.

There, you all have the full story with some added in ranting. This is just from my personal experience

I honestly think the globals are jealous of Zach's good looks and couldn't stand to see someone better looking, more successful and likable than they were. It's a shame really.

You could..log on..and look. Or you could read the first post of Tig's one-line statement about it, in the only other active thread at the moment.

"Zach (MonkeyBob) has resigned from his position as manager on Era. In order to assess Era's situation, the PWA will make a temporary stay on Era until a new manager can be named."

There were several people that you hired over your management period whom we considered security threats (including some of the people involved in placing item spawners, obnoxious hidden commands, and illegally priced items on Era when you guys "went out with a bang").

Unknowing of this illegal behavior, we approached you in order to work out the issues you were having leading up to your walkout, and we added you back onto the server as the manager. After you were re-added, you deleted your items, as did some of the other staff involved, but clearly you knowingly allowed your "good friend of yours", Josh, to keep his seventeen S6's (valued at $9,877,527 era cash) on some spare account (I can only assume it was for him to sell at some later date).

After we discovered the activities that took place during your walkout, we approached you with an indefinite probation while we investigated further. Once confronted, you resigned. Don't portray Gabriel as the bad guy here, Zach, you were clearly in violation of numerous rules, and you and your friends continue to abuse obnoxious illegal scripts placed on the server, placing "fake" staff blocks around the server -- which is considered a global server destruction offense.

Frankly, at this point, I see you and your buddies on the fast track to a "long break" from Graal.
