So I used to be able to lock and move this topic. And a general used to be able to provide a random demotion attributed to this thread maker for reasons.
I couldn't do any of that now, which is a stark contrast compared to the time of my start here. At best I could respond with some snark here, encourage you to get rude, and most likely troll you into disrespect. Looking back over the last three years the standard handling of a terrible, rotten, ill intended response from you following my trolling would be a 1-30 day forum ban depending on precedent, what you actually said, and whether I got laid in the last six months.
I just want you to know, we see you. Some of us see this issue. The best way this can be handled is by a grown up discussion addressing our misgivings, bad behaviors and questionable actions. We do that together, as a group, and hopefully with intention of celebrating and sharing each other's strengths publicly as well as negatives.
Oh wait, that is the eval period, which is about to start and im thinking if yourself, and more with questions and concerns like yours help us, and fully participate we can have one of the more active and productive eval periods in the better part of a year.
I for one, as a general of evaluation nomination procedures seemed to have forgotten the use of evals not just as a check on behavior or success and failure measuring, but the use of the eval period to normalize and humanize our leadership to members who may have less interaction with us from various platforms, time constraints of individuals, and above all showing that we too are people, willing to learn, not always right and never above reproach.
Edit: I'm on a phone, someone help me and provide the change on commanders specifically not being required the same way as the rest of us generals. I'd also point out, when we don't incite a general eval upon ourselves there is a procedure of how to get one required from us. I personally want to submit and am starting to prepare myself to volunteer an eval this period, one because I have not submitted one since earning a star, and two because it will be good for my personal life during this prison interlude, and attempt at being accountable for myself, my duty, and moral benefit. As why the rest of us might not be following the 3-6, I'll speak for myself and maybe some others, we've seemed to be using evals more for a reproach then when a person is doing their job, not necessarily for promotion though triny sassy and compfreak would be upward moving eval examples, or more precisely to just show success of requirement and fulfillment of expectations. This period of my time here, I could honestly say and be confident in saying we actually have generals who do not necessarily have commander or world domination aspirations, which again, I think at least is a little unusual.
