While I might be burning every bridge on the server here goes nothing…
An Open Letter to PCB
The latest incident to occur on the server has made me make an evaluation of myself and the server. I will be using expletives because I damn well think they are necessary.
My fondest memories of PCB were in the beta-era.People like Liam, Sip, Ouhai, Brodur, Italian, Fili, Valociraptor, Kyle, Andy, Jet, John, R33bok and Spec. We were a tight-knit community who helped each other out. I feel this is no longer the case.
Staff members have become vericose-veined Soviet Gulag officers. Nyet locking. Nyet no having fun. I am not going to stoop to naming names but many of the new comers to the server seem to not be able TO FUCKING LET GO SOMETIMES! For christ’s sake when I am using md for 10 minutes LET IT GO!
Now I understand that this is how you believe you must act but COME ON. In beta we would be joking one minute and when it counted be mature the next. IS THIS NOT POSSILE ANYMORE?
And another thing.
The ranking system is flawed as hell. No I am not just bitter about not being SOP. Semi and Sacred had to wait forever to become OP. YET YOMI GETS OP In 5-6 MONTHS??? We need a bloody structure to promotions… Sorry Yomi to name you but your very special :). We also only have 1 mod now. I’ve been OP for more than a year only to be grouped with every other staff member basically. This honestly makes me feel like dirt. Am I really the same as all of them? I had to work and apply for OP. THEY GET OP in 6 months?
Op used to be special. Now it is standard. Now I get MOD is a see if you can do it and if you can great! But my god leave people as MOD. I would like to see an application be necessary for the transition to OP.
And yes I realize I have just burned nearly every bridge on the server and frankly, I do care. I want to be the best staff member on the server. But I honestly feel like I am part of the furniture, clumped together with all the other op books.
Please do not believe I am writing this because of my SOP app which I am not. The final straw was with Fili. I agree on most of his points sadly.
School is coming and for now I will stay hoping that I can instill change. If I feel we fall into another rut then I will be leaving too.
Please note that if you can find it Jet’s thread about the downfall of the server is a good part II to this. many of the things he says in it are true once again sadly.
Finally I would like to see the staff all be re-evaluated. No offence to anyone in particular but I feel some of the staff need to be either re-trained or demoted. Sorry…
A Once Proud PCB OP
