Resignation -- posted on April 10, 2007
Well, it's been nearly a week since I sent Sebrioth my letter of resignation, and still I am sitting here as a Site Moderator. In that one week, he has logged in each day including making Cindy and Mad_Buck the latest Crazed Contributors, all the while ignoring my PM. This is just one example of the unprofessionalism and disrespect that has become a standard here at TVRage.

I wanted to cease being a Site Moderator and continue as a regular member, but that's increasingly looking impossible. I really didn't want to blog, and it's really beyond my expectation that my resignation would simply be ignored. I know a lot of members like it here, and so I don't want to bash this site, because for a great many of you, it's running just fine.

Why I am stepping down: In short, it's a difference in goals and expectations. For the most part, the site is focusing more and more on quantity as opposed to quality. There are a lot of great ideas floating around, but all eventually rely on Sebrioth's compliance, resulting in a sort of stasis. Take the SPECTRE position as an example. This idea has been around since before Rage 2.0 let alone 3.0, and yet, there are no parameters established to empower this position; at the same time, he added a few new Section 31 positions. SPECTRE – being a quality control job – is secondary to data entry, Section 31. If anything, the two positions are at odds, since the Section 31 members aren't required to use the approval system, leaving the floodgates open for unchecked error. "Editors" often cannot actually "edit" and instead we are meant to hold their hands through the process, but, you know, don't be too hard on them because it's just a hobby and we don't want to lose a customer, I mean, member. If you treat something lightly, like a hobby, then the results will be like a hobby. If you strive for professionalism, that's what you will get. Again, ich repeaten: that's fine for a lot of you, and that's fine for Rage, it's just that I don't want to be a part of that mindset. And that, in a nutshell, is why I'm stepping down. :no: Comment >>
