Exclamation Frankie

First off I would like to state Frankie and myself basically do not know each other, the only common interest we share (that I know of) is we use to play Era around the same time. Second I was not asked to post this by anyone and it is my opinion and anyone mentioned was not consulted beforehand.

Now to the real post, I believe Frankie is in the best position to manage the server. He knows the server's past, he was active on Era during its glory days, he knows what is needed to restore Era to its former status, he previously held a staff position, and finally him just being appointed manager would draw other oldbies back to the server.

I believe the current staff team are the result of a crony system and other old useless staff who have managed to keep their position on the staff team due to their hours and name dropping alone. There are of course some exceptions to this, but too many names have been in this position to long with way to little results.

I do not want this to appear to be a flame on Deophite, as far as I can tell by his post's he is a good guy and I do admire him for having a plan for Era and that is much better then many of the previous managers ::cough::ningnong and jenn::cough::. But sadly my admiration does not cause me to like his plan, I believe it is changing Era to much to the point that it is no longer Era. Another problem I have with Deophite is he was and still is relatively inexperienced with Era when compared to someone like Frankie.

I have no idea how good Frankie is at developing, although I would be willing to bet he has above basic knowledge in at least one area of developing. But I do believe he could properly manage and guide a staff team into reconstructing and fixing Era's laundry list of problems.

I'm not going to make this a poll asking the community to vote, I simply would like to ask the community to voice their opinion's about who you believe would make the best manager and why. I really would like this to not turn into a flame fest or "LAWL MY FRIEND 4 MANAGER PLOZX"! thread, so that PWA's take us seriously for once, and if they don't I guess it really shows what direction this game is heading, and the mindset of those running it.

I appreciate the support. Even though I don't play as much as I used to it's good to see that there are still players that want to see me as manager.

Unfortunately, even if the position was offered to me right now I don't think I would take it. It's been over 4 months since I quit and I've lost interest in the server and even Graal in general. HoudiniMan completely ripped out any motivation I had as a staff member when he denied me the manager position 4 months ago. Since then I haven't really cared much about the server. Sure I complain about numerous things which would lead one to believe I still care, but I don't care enough to do anything about it.

Although you may disagree with Deophite's plans for the server, a manager change is the last thing Era needs right now. I don't entirely agree with everything that's being done right now either and I'm sure there are many other players that feel the same way. If I was put into management I would probably not want to go through with these plans which means development would start from square one, again.

There are players that support me but not Deophite, and there are players that support Deophite but not me. So at this point it doesn't really matter who is manager. Era just needs someone to lead the server in the right direction whether or not everyone agrees with what's being done, which is what Deophite is doing right now. Even though there's a lot of disagreement regarding his views on the server, at least something is being done, and everyone should appreciate that.

Deophite is doing a good job as a manager, bringing in a new manager may confuse players, I advise you remain with your current manager and once he resigns or gets fired, then Frankie should have an attempt to obtain the position of manager. If he does I'd support him though I have quit Era.

That made me laugh out loud.

It is a shame that frankie doesn't want to / can't be manager of Era. He would steer it in the right direction i'm sure. As zim said, he's and oldbie, who knows era and the players, and would attract some older player back, who have left because some of the new staff have no clue what to do with Era.

I've always wondered if Deo even wanted the manager position. It seems to me that Houdini just gave it to him because nobody else at the time was qualified for manager especially after Sales quit. The only reason why Deo has anything to do with Era is because his spot as the GP Chief was supposed to be some sort of evaluation before they made him a PWA. I'm pretty sure the last thing he expected when trying to get PWA was winding up as Era's manager.

Quite frankly (Haha I said frankly.. how ironic) I don't think Deo is a very suitable Manager. Not because of who he is or where he plays most. But for the simple fact that it doesn't seem like he enjoys doing what he's doing, nor does it seem as if he is very "cozy" to the community with which he lies. In my opinion a Manager should be very "open-ended" and by that meaning that they should be open and more than willing to do what is necessary to improve the server, and they should also be open to what the players want. By what i've seen, Deo doesn't very much seem like he cares much as to what the players of the server think. I know if I was Manager, if a player had a good opinion on something, it would matter more than mine tbh. But I don't know, there isn't much you can do about him being Manager so might as well leave it as is.
