[size=15px]This isn’t a rant, it’s an open letter to the senior staff of Project City Build. Please take the time to read this message thoroughly if you fall under that description. This letter not only recognizes issues and questions that I myself want taken care of, but rather that of the collective opinion of the lower staff. I understand that by making this post, I am shooting myself in the foot. However, it seems that no one else wants to jeopardize their own position like I am about to do.[size=15px]
This isn’t a resignation letter, because I’m willing to stand up and be the representative for the voice of lower staff members, and I’m not going to put my tail between my legs after doing so.
[size=15px]Allow me to start my parlous letter by discussing one of the more well known issues at hand, the slipshod promotions of Senior Operators. Starting with current Senior Operator kurrepted98989’s promotion, I request to know the reasoning behind her promotion. Her promotion as a staff member was discussed by lower staff to be too fast, and upset many. Another reason this upset many was due to the fact that kurrepted98989 lacked the skills needed to be a Senior Operator, such as knowledge of commands, leadership, or authority. The main reasoning for her promotion, as thought by lower staff, is to be her friendship with Shadowmeire628. An example of this lack of knowledge can be displayed at the destruction of the creative worlds spawn by kurrepted98989 by misuse of a world edit command. (Citing _andy, Liam599 as witnesses). In which no form of reprimands were given to kurrepted98989 as a result of this. The only actions taken to repair this were from Hard24get and Liam599 through the use of World Edit. No reason has been given for the promotion of kurrepted98989, nor has no reason been provided for the lack of punishment towards the World Edit destruction.
Once more I bring up the topic of negligent promotions when I ask for the reasoning behind DuckGyvers promotion. Whilst DuckGyver obtains a larger knowledge of commands, there are others that knew more than him. This promotion is a grand example of negligence among higher staff, as through nameless sources, his promotion only lasted ten hours before being prematurely promoted by kurrepted98989. ten hours is not enough time for their to be a full discussion of someones qualification as a Senior Operator. This promotion sparked the same amount of outrage in the lower staff, but once again no one spoke up. Hard24get asked the question about what qualities DuckGyver had over other, more active staff members, yet no answer was given. However, the conclusion between lower staff has been that DuckGyver received his promotion due to his acquaintanceship with kurrepted98989. This promotion is thought to be undeserved and only exists due to this friendship, an unfair advantage to say the least.
[size=15px]I, Hard24get, speak for myself on this paragraph. The promotion of Sacredeathflame is the only promotion that I can actually agree with. Mainly due to the, unproven idea, that my suggestion is actually the reasoning behind his promotion. I spoke with many Senior Operators after DuckGyvers promotion, asking the question “What does DuckGyver have that other players such as Sacreddeathflame, Cherryred, Italianchild, or Ymbninjakiller have?” Of course, I received no answer to this. However not soon after, a strange post appeared in the Deleted Posts thread from Shadowmiere628 about the promotion of Sacreddeathflame. This doesn’t offer much to this letter, but I’m adding it because I want to point out that I think Sacreddeathflames promotion only exists due to the negative responses that DuckGyvers promotion received.
[size=15px]Back to the collective voice, I ask that the Senior Staffs evaluate what they really do for the server. Lower staff believe that the position of Senior Operator should be given to certain staff members that withhold talents or skills that the server can benefit from, or at least offer leadership to lower staff members. However right now, the following staff members offer nothing to benefit the server (per the opinion of lower staff members). DuckGyver, Kurrepted98989, Shadowmeire628, and to an extent Ouhai_Ruby. Fatso12321 and Kyle8910 help by managing Feed The Beast, Johnlh97 helps by running server side things and helps with Pixelmon, as well as paying for the Feed The Beast server. Liam599 plays fair on the server, and behaves as a positive role model and leader towards players. Sacreddeathflame is hard to describe, however his promotion was fair as Sacreddeathflame has extensive knowledge of Pixelmon, Feed The Beast, and the main server.[size=1em]
Once again, I would like to point out that I, Hard24get, have been speaking not as myself, but as the collective voice of lower staff members in this letter.
Thank you, The lower staff of Project City Build.
