About me

Postby Calthine Faeriesong » Sat Oct 02, 2004 3:38 am

Yes, I deguilded. Thank you all for your kind tells. I said I'd explain when I calmed down, so here you go.

I have a problem with a "family-style guild" that's "hardcore about not being hardcore" that is getting so focused on raiding that non-raiders are asked not to talk in /gu.

I am also unhappy that in the weeks since I stepped down as officer, no one has been able to relieve me of my officer responsibilites (ie: the website and forums). I stepped down to relax and play, and yet I'm spending half my days maintaing one or in tells about the other.

My deguilding might seem overdramatic, but please be aware that the incident Friday night was just the final straw. There's more behind this than one incident, none of which needs airing here.

Aboobaka asked me to reconsider; we had a nice conversation. I'm thinking about it, but I need a little time to cool off.

Sometimes it is good to take a break completely from EQ.

Calthine retires her Officership. But agrees to continue as webmistress, keep those pictures coming! Posted by Calthine 9.19.04


then

I am also unhappy that in the weeks since I stepped down as officer, no one has been able to relieve me of my officer responsibilites (ie: the website and forums).


Maybe I missed something not being in the Members forums or /gu but these two statements seem to completely contradict themselves.

So the obvious question is this. Who is the webmaster/forum administrator now? Also, who 'owns' the rights to Tribal Fury dot Org? I know pens handed over all of the stuff to Calthine when he left.

I am tempted to take a shot at Calthine but really, there isn't enough information for me to make too much of an arguement.

What I have heard is that there was general conversation going on in the /gu that was disrupting a raid and when the target of the raid was insight an officer asked the people in /gu and the raid to 'put your game faces on' and to buckle up for the raid (to basically calm down the /gu chat and focus). This caused the non-raiders to get upset because they felt that 'they couldn't talk in /gu'. Which from the sounds of it is completely to the contrary of what was meant by the statement of the officer. You peeps have always teetered on the fence of raiders or non-raiders and the camp of TF has always contained hardcore people from both camps. It seems rather silly for someone to deguild over the raiders asking for seriousness in the /gu when they are about to engage something like Seru or whatever the target was at the time. If people have an issue with that. Make a channel where u can continue the conversation. No harm, No foul. One can argue that a seperate channel shouldn't need to be made but that is a debate I am not getting into.

So if the above 'grapevine' information is even remotely true then I say to Calthine, Take some time off. Take Prallic with you (because if he still plays you will hear about things 2nd hand and then your time off isn't really time off at all) and get away from EQ for about a good month (or however long u feel is necessary). Obviously something has been stirring inside of you from this game or RL to cause such a drastic reaction to something that is very commonplace and trivial. People have been saying 'put your game faces on' before mob engage in TF since I can remember.

If my info is wrong then ignore my above rant. This is just my opinion of the situation from outside of the box. Sometimes outside perspective is best. Take what you will from this.

I hear your good intentions, Del, but you're off base. You missed this bit:
My deguilding might seem overdramatic, but please be aware that the incident Friday night was just the final straw. There's more behind this than one incident, none of which needs airing here.
The incident Friday was not the problem, it was the straw that broke the camel's back. As for everything else behind my decision, I am not going to air TF laundry in public.

I agreed, reluctantly, to keep up the website and forums until Ari got someone else to take it. There wasn't a day I din't ask about it.

As for who owns the URL and is responsible for the webhosting, that's frankly none of your business. And I'm quite sure Ari will announce the new webmaster/forum administrator in due time.
