Re: important issue

I mean, the obvious answer is that you can't please everyone. I can tell you from past experience (as I'm sure other ex-headmins/current headmins would attest) that you get takes from all over the spectrum. You will get told both that you're a petty minded bureaucrat and that you're not enforcing th...

Re: Burnout

Quoting from my thread: No concerns per se from your last headmin term, that said, how do you plan on not getting burnt out from more headminning? Burn out is a very real concern, so it's definitely a fair question to ask. Part of the reason I didn't run for a second term after my first was because ...

Re: Arianya - Good Things Come in Threes

I disagree with your view on manuel-only roleplay bans, I think it's pretty trivial to judge whether somebody's making a good faith attempt to roleplay. If you check the player's chat logs for rounds they play in and they make no effort to engage other players or type more than two words in the cha...

Re: Universal Bans

I think Manuel would improve with a server-specific ban policy to maintain the high standard. The problem is that roleplaying is not just a case of following the rules, you need to kind of know how to do it. Either we allow people who try but are terrible at it to continue playing and the quality s...
