Ok, so I've been lurking for a while. SXSW is going on here in Austin. I had two gigs, friends are here from out of town, trying to get the kickstarter up and running, and I've lost two nights of sleep in the past week. I'm exhausted.
While I have been chuckling at this all, I have to say I really appreciate what gyms articulated in his post. To be honest, I even forgot we had some blown out IRC rule sheet. "be nice and cool" is fine by me (maybe even add a please to it?!?!).
I'm closing this thread so it can fall off the front page. I don't understand why something so simple gets so heated. I know I've seemed checked out lately, but I've been sitting here at the cornputer more than I should, responding to the PM's that come my way. This kickstarter business has been one of the most anxiety inducing things I have ever put myself through. I try my best to stand by the admins/ops when they do what they think is best. Hosting esoteric OHBs, telling folks to chill out when being inappropriate; these are important things. I just really wish they would come to me first when they have ideas before executing them. I am stressed and I don't have the energy to support decisions I wasn't included in. Whether it's an admin creating a mature channel and telling everyone to split up by age, or another admin that says they don't want to be an admin posting new channel rules w/o using their admin account, I'm spread too thin trying to save face. Sorry to drop this in public and close the thread butt you can PM me (or start a thread in the n00b forum) if you think I'm in the wrong.
I want Battle of the Bits to be the best durn thing it can be.
"please be nice and cool"
