"i will not tolerate" words like that, etc- say that she is trying to draw a line of where we are and where she is, so i'm stung by it- but we're obviously meant to remember our little places in this online world.
looking good already, eh guys?
Okay, what? Seriously Xenon, maybe you're the one being defensive here. I know there are folks here who tend to attack you, but that's not the entire forum and certainly not Thalar.
1) She's the GM and she's clearly stating that yes, when it comes to helpers, she's going to run it the way she wants. She is entitled to this right. If she also wants to say "I don't want any interference nor will any be tolerated," that is also her right. Just as it was Kern's right to have ranked in the first place. If she doesn't want it, she doesn't have to have it. It's her call and being resentful of that is unnecessary. She wanted no room for argument, and really, that's what you pretty much have to do here in order to get the point across to folks.
2) She knows more about the upcoming game than we do. All we can make are assumptions, but from what she's saying, the new system will be so radically different that it will eliminate the need for the bickering and bitching we did. If that's the case, all well and good. I have no complaints. Personally, I'd much rather it be her call when it comes to helpers, as I've said before.
I'm sorry your idea didn't go off the way you intended when you started this thread, but that's how it works sometimes. You win some, you lose some, but acting well...bitter isn't the way to go about it.
Timotheus: Kirio has been keeping track of things for a while now. If he does not, I'm sure others will have no qualms stepping up to the plate. Being a bookkeeper doesn't need a ranked status, Kirio isn't even a moderator from what I know. Usually someone comes out of the woodwork to tackle issues like these, so I wouldn't worry overmuch.
