    The staff are planning big changes. Massive changes, in fact. .I won't spoil.

    But these recent changes...

    Sometimes, it feels like the staff are whining that they don't have enough control over everything. And that they should call all the shots.

    Perhaps I sound accusatory.

    But with the recent decisions made, it seems like the staff are just too serious about things. Too strict. Too much of a good thing has consequences.

    Aren't we supposed to be a fun-loving community? Why are we trying to make this a business?

    Why is there a pattern in that the open, nice, fun side of users disappear the more they ascend ranks? 

    Responsibility doesn't mean that you have to be a robot, an enforcer. It means you have to do your job and know when to be serious whil…

    Not leaving

    November 27, 2017 by DatDramaPlant

    Since everyone's talking about leaving this place for good, I might as well do the same contrary.

    (Is that proper grammar?)

    I'm still never leaving this place. I still adore PvZH, I occasionally play PvZ2 and since my dad got a new PC that I'm allowed to use, I can play more GW2 as well. Still not guaranteeing that my mainspace activity will increase, but maybe once in a while I'll do a few edits. Maybe I'll discover new strats in GW2 or something, I don't know.

    Sure, the whole removing RP branch thing was a big blow. I don't think it was necessary, but I can see why people absolutely hate the RPers. Just look at the thread and you get a freaking WAR ZONE. The people who want (wanted) to keep the RP branch... I may be on their side, but their r…

    I've been searching for a place to do this for quite a while. I finally decided to make a blog post about this, so... okay.

    Just read the blogs for today. Those things are depressing. I mean, two blogs about users that did great things leaving (EDIT: One, the other was a parody) , and one about a user celebrating about the loss of what was a good staff member. Sure perks me up.

    If you've been following my blogs (which you probably haven't, since I hardly ever make them, and they're basically trash), you'll know that I have already made a blog about users leaving. If you don't want to read it, the short version is here: Do you not care about this wiki anymore? If you still do, why are you leaving? We need all the help we can get.

    Even though t…

    Yeah... so... title.

    Basically, exams. Yay! There's this super-duper important exam coming up, and I quite literally HAVE to score well. I'm already lucky I even get to use the computer this often. Exams will be at the end of the year in October, so during this three-to-four month period, I'm not going to be active very much. 

    (It also means I might get demoted due to the evaluation three-month timeframe ending right smack in the middle. Whoops. could start ranting on the evaluation thing, but that'll need a different blog, more stuff on evaluations to make me annoyed (sorry Cam, your one blog isn't quite going to make me rant on the system yet <s>no offense) and time.</s>)

    I really shouldn't joke about other people, especially about other pe…

    Well, I. Have to do this, or I'll be demoted. I "conveniently" forgot to make one beforehand, so, yay!

    Well, I haven't been around cause vacation. I left on the 3rd, and places to properly type don't come often. I'll be back to my home and my PC on the 14th or 15th, so my activity should hopefully spike right back up once that rolls around.

    Typing on the iPad is an absolute pain, so I'll leave it at that.
