I've been saying a lot of pro-imm stuff lately. But it's mostly because I think they should be given thumbs up when it's due, and given a boo, when they deserve it. Often enough, they deserve a lot of both. Anyway.
Nyr's handling of the that thread about Tuluki shadow artists. Big thumbs up. Basically responding to everyone's posts, is very impressive. If Imms had that kind of communication on various things, Arm would be a very great place.
armqwertytwo I think you have license to do whatever the fuck you want because you're like the golden standard of poster that I point to whenever someone yells about this place being a circlejerk.
on an unrelated note, I tried reading those docs about 'shadow artists' (i thought it was going to be about people who made shadow puppets) and at this point I'm 90% sure that nyr has asperger's because wow is that a needlessly complex and convoluted system. also, choice quote:
Above all, shadow artists are trusted to be discreet. They might have tattoos that detail their exploits in general, but it is considered improper to discuss specific job details as it shows a lack of tact. Who would want to hire a blabbermouth? For that matter, who would register a blabbermouth as a shadow artist? Since this is a very important part of the job, failure to know when to keep quiet can result in punishment from the templarate.

I'm not disgruntled or jaded.
I've never had a bad experience with Staff so far-- they seem to do really well if you keep them updated and inform them of when you're about to do stuff that would pull in a reaction from the virtual world.
It's true that he was a bit of a jerk on the GDB in his early days as admin, but to be fair, he's actually gotten a lot more polite on the GDB because he was probably told by other staff and players how he came across. Apart from that, it's just reality that any admin is going to sound like "a dick" to some people, because one of their jobs is to say no. Players want a ton of stuff, and a lot of that stuff is at odds with each other. Some of them are just going to have to be told no. Everyone sounds like a dick when they're telling you no.

Can we get any specifics?
Or will it forever look like a case of "baww staff didn't let me get what i wanted/get away with it and im really thin skinned what dicks" to those that haven't had bad experiences with staff after so many years?
grumble: Necker, however much I miss saying "Sup my necker?", was a bit much. I can do without it because I see the reason why it's a bad idea. I'm not sure too many were offended but one is enough.
