//Moved to the lounge because I want you to be able to read it after I fix your forum admin levels.
It has been a fun road not long but oh well but the time has come where I have decided to leave the clan. I have my reasons.
1) Trying to get killbox going, seems like some admins seem to enjoy playing than helping out, I find that funny. I find it funny how none of the 1.6 guys come on to 1.7 to help out. Seems to be only a handful of people want to camp killbox and i've had enough. Yes I know there have been topics made about, lazy admins.
2) I believe in second chances and all that but 3rd chances I don't but that seems to be what we are giving some people who want to re-join.
3) Some RL stuff have come up.
I know I will probably get a kick up the ass for making this topic but I don't know how I can go on. We've got the new coming in and it is time for me to move on.
Just like to say thank you for giving me the chance and the great servers and the amazing people in the clan. Just like to say a special thanks to everyone that helped me get here.
Few things I'd like to address before getting all sentimental.
1.) You only spent about a week camping Killbox (from what I saw Heretic did a bit more). Camping a server and getting it populated takes much more than that and you need more than 1-2 people to do it..it took Myself, Baska, Speedfact and a few others 2-3 months to fill Killbox with decent numbers. What it boils down to is getting a group of people (with even less of a life than myself) sitting on the server and playing there day-in and day-out for at least a month or three. I'm not talking just sitting in spec afk doing something else either...they need to be talking with people and being friendly (that's how we did it). People want to know that there are admins around and that they're friendly and that people actually play on that server. It's slow as shit at first but eventually you'll start to get a few of the same people who keep showing up and eventually it will build until you have a group of regulars, recruit them and they will start to play there and they will repeat it and so on until you have a good stable population of players. It's time consuming and a lot of hard work...as far as 1.6 guys not coming to 1.7 to help out, it works both ways. 1.6 has it's problems just like 1.7 does, we need admin on both ends, Some of them do already help with 1.7 but not everyone can and it's not mandatory that they do. if everyone left the 1.6 servers to come to 1.7 server that would leave servers in 1.6 with the same problem Killbox and the promod servers are having right now. At the moment we can't spare that many admin to do such things.
2.) You do not need to worry about or question our reasons for giving people multiple chances. We have our own good reasons for it and I would hope you would trust us enough to believe that after years of being in the clan we know what we're doing by now. We all make mistakes, we're human. Everyone deserves a chance to show that they've learned from their past errors. Besides it's 3 strikes and you're out in American Baseball, works the same in the clan. I know you don't trust the leadership and you don't agree with us most of the time, but we have been doing this for a long time, we have seen it all before and know how everything usually plays out.
3.) Real life will always come first, that has been the clan motto from day 1...that alone is no reason to throw in the towel, you happen to have more than 1 so...
If a little failure, a bit of ridicule (albeit most of the time it was intended in a friendly way) some disagreements with your superiors and peers, and a bit of lethargy is enough to make you want to throw in the towel, then perhaps I was wrong and you aren't quite mature enough for us yet...which is very unfortunate, I had high hopes for you kiddo.
Anyway, I hope you do not take personal offense to any of this, it is not my intent to insult you. Despite my own personal feelings about your reasons, I will respect them and you for coming forward with most of them (most of them we already talked about via xfire). I'll miss having Mr.Cuddles around and I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
