Server Toxicity

Recommended Posts

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Let’s make it clear what this place is about, and hold no illusions to keep people who want something else.
This is the place we're building, we're the DMs, and we own the house. You come in, don't even bring snacks, and request to change things to suit your views.
When told that something isn't going to happen, that you have to work towards things following our rules, the option of changing how it works isn't in your hands.
People have been quite able to talk, discuss, and try to improve what the server is about. And in the end, if we agreed, things changed. If we didn't, they didn't change.
Berating, insulting, and continuing such behaviour only serves to make people bitter, angry, and not want to deal with any of it. 
Patience is not unlimited, and as much as Elle can be an Angry Texan™, it isn't without rhyme or reason. 

You're placing the problem on Elle, but the problem isn't Elle. Because Elle's "crime" is to not have given up like the other keepers who had to suffer through dealing with this behaviour.

Sorry Varen but you've just gone completely off your rocker with this. Any delusions people may have had of you being the quiet innocent one who 'just wants to code' in the corner have just gone tumbling out of the window.

We come in and don't even bring snacks? What the hell is this server without its players? There are countless people who are not on staff who bust their balls trying to think of new ways to change the server for the better and suggest innovative new ideas, new systems and engage with the staff but frankly it's one dimensional.

You're a good coder, Varen, don't get me wrong... but this just reeks of arrogance. There are many who either have never been on staff or who have been part of staff briefly who have contributed to the server's advancement as a whole and for you to come out with this is... i'm lost for words now.

 

Edit: OP has been edited, seems there's been some communication errors and phrasing could have been better (it now is).  Check the OP in the above link to re-read it.

Man, if you had any misconception that Varen was the quiet innocent one, then you have not seen him act during/before the opening stages of the server. 

Guess it's an eye-opening week, this one.

Reposting for clarity:
As casting a widespread net over every player wasn't what I intended, after a chat with Dascombe on discord I edited the text to the following:
