There was some question over my recent disappearance from the staff roster over on Skulltag.net.
Yesterday I voiced disagreement over a staff policy. In lieu of an actual discussion, my opinions were shouted down with otherworldly strawman arguments, bizarre accusations, and insistence that I had no idea what I was talking about. I repeatedly tried to clarify what I was actually asking for, only to be rudely dismissed repeatedly and talked down to, including questions of whether I was having a bad day and insistence that they knew better.
I was then told, summarily, that my questioning of Eruanna's policy was argumentative and made "discussion impossible". At this point I was less concerned about the rule and more about the visible instability of the staff I was working with. I'm willing to accept that my opinions are only my opinions, and that they don't need to be shared by the rest of the staff, but none of my suggestions or criticisms were even given the slightest bit of consideration. As I had no interest in being a staff member in name only, whose only allowed purpose was to be a yes-man to Metal and Eruanna, I resigned.
So, that was that. I look forward to continuing my contributions to the Doom community in other ways, and wish Metal and Eruanna the best of luck in finding new staff members who will be less questioning of their wisdom. I now no longer doubt the horror stories I've heard from other former staff members.
I wasn't going to make a public announcement of this, but I've already seen attempts to rewrite history to make me look like the aggressor in all this, so I figured I'd post my side of the story. I was going to post it on Skulltag itself, but the thread was conveniently locked while I was writing my post. Funny thing, that.

Coming from a fellow former Skulltag staff member myself, my only gripe was how biased the promotions were within the staff. I was there a good 2+ years as a global moderator, yet some other guy who had only been in the staff for a total of 6-7 months at all was promoted to administrator over me. Same thing is *still* going on today. These people who have only been in the staff for a matter of months are rising up to administrator out of nowhere. It's ridiculous.
