Partial resignation

As of monday, August 29th, I'll be stepping down as ETA to assistant. This is on a trial basis to determine whether or not GeorgeC is capable of heading the team (in my opinion, he is, but protocol is nice too)

If he proves he can do it, this will become a permanent transition. I do this for multiple reasons, but the big ones are that college starts monday for me, and last year Graal wrecked my grades pretty badly (or at least made a nice scapegoat for it)

Furthermore, I will still be heading the event development team from era dev, still have support center to help you guys, and will still be able to handle player/event related issues.

Basically, I'm letting george step up so i can host less and help more in other ways, and of course, i'll be tagging along with Zach to solve housing problems


Thank you all for a wonderful time, i'll still be seeing you around~

Good luck to *GeorgeC and I am sad to see you go. Good job anyway while you held the ETA position.

Maybe you should wait until you fully resign.
This really seems pointless.

Rather than announcing a new ETA and congratulating him appropriately he decided to make this thread about himself and stepping down.

The glass is half-empty in this thread.

I'll give him his rightful round of congrats when he's earned a permanent spot as ETA, kk? thanks.

It's his way of saying, "I'm going to keep my level two RC, but not be required to do so much with events." Keep in mind (maybe it changed), he's still housing admin, so even if he quit being ETA, he'd still be housing admin.

Just like yours was permanent?
olol, and last I checked, you started as aETA.. and bypassed Name because he sucked.
George has hosted every single major event since he's been promoted, despite the folly in his "hosting whenever I feel like tournaments" he's done WAY MORE than you in the past month to earn the position fairly.

Aka: most useless admin position, that happens to require two players..? *friend card*

Just like they need 2 GBAs.. or 2 PSAs
These positions didn't even exist before, or require one player... but TWO? Are you honestly serious?

There's a PRA that does virtually nothing.
Two PSA's - Zeus runs the dev stuff, other than that they do nothing.
Two GBA's - This position in general hasn't done anything in months, last I checked they decided to remove it?
Co-Manager - All he does is fly around in a helicopter and :join nuke on unstick me.
Two Housing Admins - Takes less than 3 minutes for someone to check the RARE house update levels and upload them.
Two Asst. ETA - Just why? You don't even need one except for the whole 'pass down to the next guy' clause.

There's more Admins than there are PRs...
*gripes*

Development is virtually stalled, yet they can hire endless high non-dev admins and spend all their time trying to find reasons to ban Wil.

+Rep Era.

That's what he'll be learning.

I think 2 housing admins isn't particularly required, I'll agree with you on that. I've requested (and got zach's approval for) just taking the position since he's GBA now.

Please quit graal, if all you're going to do is hate everyone and everything in it. You know i love you rogue, but this is ridiculous

and, if i may, Wil was banned for legitimate reasons, so don't imply that he's banned because everyone dislikes him

Event's have been the same for years, I don't see anything that needs to be FIXED as far as IMPROVE; that's a personal option...

It's not that hard to look at a few numbers of online time, or to choose people. Last I saw he was massing the applications and choosing the new people (probably because that's training? but still it's not horribly difficult to do).

I complain to George more often than you, because you're never online.

Good @ 1 housing 1 GBA.

If I hated it I wouldn't care about any of this now would I? I want the best for Era/Graal, but sometimes (all the time considering the audience) you have to complain/gripe to get anything accomplished.

I'm not going to go into great detail (could hit it for hours on this topic), but instead throw an example at this last part:
It is an utter double-standard. William was permaed at first notice without trial or anything, and reset despite that not being part of the 'norm' for account sharing. The player who completed this action was then promoted halfway up the staff roster.

Earlier today, using Era's definition of the crime, as well as Alfonso's personal policy of 'Automatic life (10 year) ban' I presented him multiple players who fit that definition that are currently ONLINE. He, instead of taking a similar action to the pre-described case, reamed me with unrelated information. Then logged off without responding.

Dunno how you could possibly call bull**** better than getting it from the Manager himself.

Then again, this will probably be turned into a 'ban' discussion somehow and be deleted so why did I type it?

Wil was banned multiple times before for various other things, no? So a heavier ban this time makes sense in my opinion.
I could be wrong, i don't know everything about everyone. just pretend to.
