Well. Veselka deserved getting thwapped. He was getting insulting in his responses. The thread shouldn't have been closed though. That part makes no sense. Only because two people went at it, doesnt mean the thread should end.
The song everyone on these boards need to listen once, or twice.
"He started it" is a defense you grow out of in grade school, though, and that's besides the point of the thread. This is, I think, the first time one staff member publicly chewed out another staff member for inappropriate behavior, and I hope to see more action rather than words.
Shalooonsh was completely responsible for lowering the level of discourse in the thread, and is at least partly responsible for shitting up the GDB in general. He shouldn't just be chastised by an Admin, he should be barred from posting on the GDB or thrown off the staff team.
The thread of course shouldn't have been locked, but we already know how liberally the staff use the lock button.
Staff "You got dick cheese for brains unsuspecting player. suck on this and be grateful."
Staff 2 "LE sigh. You are all so uncivil. This is why you cannot have nice things. Locked."
Regarding the Malifaxis/Bebop thing, I don't know what the current status of their relationship is. They used to be together, they might still be, I don't know and don't care to know. Regardless, he used his status as a staff member to white-knight for a player and ultimately weakened her fairly reasonable position with his poor behavior.
Seidhr was brusque but as far as I know, he never actively did anything against me.
Akariel actually tried to clean up Shalooonsh's mess and helped me on more than one occasion.
Shalooonsh is power hungry and not emotionally stable. He lacks the emotional maturity and professionalism to be staff on this game. For reference, you may see the long-ass log I posted of the conversation where I attempted to put the cart back up on its wheels with Greedy One. Witness Akariel's attempts to help, Shabago's minimal attempts to rein Shalooonsh in, and the ultimate non-resolved debacle.
But I feel like calling out Shalooonsh here is just going to cause staff to link arms and form a human shield in front of him rather than inspire change.
I mean, if criticism of Shalooonsh here causes staff to decide not to do the right thing and get rid of the manchild from their staff team, then they're as emotionally immature and unprofessional as he is.
qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
