[RESOLVED]My Departure from Clan Overdosed

Recommended Posts

Well, here we are again.

 

After giving it much though, I've decided that I will be leaving OD. Any possibility of me returning is rather unlikely.

 

I do not accept how the clan is being ran, and the leaders are mostly afraid of change. A 63 year old woman requires constant protection from someone 40 years younger than her. Poor decision making has been made by generals and commanders. But when I make a bad mistake, I get my ass demoted twice. Am I upset about that still? Fuck yes.

 

I've given sweat, tears, and hours of sleep only to be spat in the face by our glorious leaders. If you want to become a general, kiss someone's ass, and be useless. Actually, the clan's been held back and lost many divisions because of the effective decision making of our generals.

 

Thank you. 

 

P.S.

 

Take this opportunity to shit on me again. It will only put me more in the right.

Nobodies going to be an asshole in a resignation thread and that's final. I don't care who's resigning. Do it and I'll ban you personally.

 

I'm not really sure where this stemmed from 100%, unless it's revolving around the evaluations a few weeks ago. 

 

You were demoted because you didn't represent what a Senior Officer should have, and that punishment would have been the same if you did the same thing with anyone else. It had nothing to do with 'defending' someone and everything to do with defending morality and the rules of this community. You can't just accuse someone of something that isn't true and not expect a repercussion for it. Everyone wants accountability for the actions of leaders, but accountability applies to everyone, and a Senior Officer is a leader. So lets keep to the facts in regards to that and not try to justify immorality with lies or even half truths.

 

At the end of the day though, I am sad to see that you're resigning. I had hoped that you would take the criticisms in the evaluation to heart, and use them to grow and evolve into a better leader, because you have the potential. Even after it all, you could still have a future here.

 

If resignation is truly your wish, then we cannot fault you for it. I do hope that your future remains bright and all your future endeavors come to fruition. I am sorry to see you choosing to leave. :(

I can explain it As I a business owner I sees it, Two employees one job One employee works hard gets stuff done on time but can be a bit rough around the edges and in reality an individual with their own way of doing things and then you have the other employee who shows up everyday doesnt pout does what is needed to get by and at the end of the day clocks out does not have their own ideas but never has any bad interactions with the other employees. its more of a You are super qualified for the job but we dont like your individuality so we are going to go with the other canidate that is less qualified but more apt to fall in line and not cause problems. Now I can tell you this 99.9% of Owners/ Managers will agree with its easier to go with the one who wont cause problems over the dreamer, its very easy to see.

@Aerineth(OD) Mike, it must be Christmas for you,

 

I have not seen one, not one single reason why I haven't passed my evaluation. I've had my fair share of pming generals and commanders, only to be disappointed by their responses. Now believe me, I've read the comments on my eval, and to say I got shat on is an understatement. I was no leader, I just a guy doing his thing, and pointing out mistakes. I was not one with followers. The very few people who got to know me well understood how I felt about things, but they wouldn't blindly agree with everything I said. when it came to arguing, they wouldn't fight my battles. They trusted that I was at the very least honest about what I did and how I felt. That is what made me different from those who were given ranks and promotions from being ass kissers. 

 

To be around and let someone else take all the credit for what I and countless others have done is not something I want to do anymore. The clan has depending on the success of many, and to see it all the praise being directed towards one member who doesn't have the ability to handle situations and still requires assistance with things she should be able to do on her own vexes me.

In your eval I stated that you have a troubling tendency to handle things poorly if they don't go your way.

Upon failing your eval, you publicly accused Purplez of things she didn't do.

Upon being demoted for your false accusations, you resigned.

Upon rejoining, you eventually asked us to rescind your demotions. And after saying no you appear to be resigning again.

 

Seems like a pretty clear pattern to me.

If failing your eval because of this obvious flaw in judgement is considered making a poor decision, then so be it. If the act of punishing someone for attacking another with lies and misinformation is considered bad decision-making by Generals and Commanders, then we are guilty as sin. And if expecting you to accept those consequences like a responsible Officer of this Clan is considered spitting in your face, then I suppose we have a habit of spitting in the faces of everyone.

 

But understand this, OD is a community of integrity. We will protect our members from the persecution of others, not because they need it, but because we choose to be a community that doesn't stand by and do nothing when one of our own is mistreated. We will punish those who wrong others, not out of spite, but because we genuinely believe that targeting others is not okay. And we will reprimand those who speak and act out of ignorance, not because we don't care but because we do.

 

That is what we do in OD, that is what we will always try to do. If you want a Clan that doesn't, then I hope you find one. But it sure as hell isn't this one.

Yup, but the reasons for my demotion still don't make sense to me.

Was actually upon realization that this clan has no future with the way it's being ran.

Never mentioned that. By poor decisions I mean more like the time when OD could have an ESports team formed for SCII, but that got shut down when it could've put us on the map.

I wonder if Spencer had the same thought when you blasted him on one his resignation posts.

Then why are you still a commander?

more a bunch of betas living vicariously thru their own delusions of grandeur far too long has the upper management doubled down on the work of the officer the warrant officer and the enlisted.

@Ray(OD), where did you get your soundboard?

Ray, you've really achieved some good things in your short time here in OD. You've also hit some "rough patches" along the way. With what we've discussed in our PM(s), and now this "lashing out" of a resignation thread, I am really very disappointed in the path you've chosen. I can honestly say that I thought much more of you than what I've been witnessing here.  Instead of choosing to be responsible for your actions, accepting the consequences and learning from them, you chose to think along the lines of "maybe if I ask again, they'll change their mind about their decision".  These actions only reinforce the reason(s) you did not move on to phase 2 and be put up on the promotion board for 1-star. Instead of looking for someone else to blame for what has happened, be it generals, commanders, or your peers, look to your own actions to find the root of the problem. Everything happens for a reason, and if you dive deep enough, everyone and how people treat us, can be traced back to ourselves and our own actions (or in-actions). I hope you can look back on this life experience down the road, and learn to regret how you chose to leave us, but in the meantime, I do wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. I'll miss your sometimes corny jokes and a-typical sense of humor around teamspeak.😉

@CompFreak(OD) Okay, I'm going to make this clear for everyone.

 

I do not mind that I was punished; that's just part of the procedure. Though, what perplexes me, is the fact that I was still punished even though the reasoning behind the demotion was rendered null by the deletion of my vote. The vote was deleted, but not everyone knew what happened. I've had people on ts ask me "what happened" (they noticed I had an "O" instead of an "S". I told them about the vote, and that I was demoted for it.

 

You know what they'd say? "Damn, that kinda sucks." They weren't getting up in arms and protesting the decisions that the generals collectively made.

Hi I'm Gay,

 

Well for starters..

didnt take but two lines for you to jump to her defense. 

Typical. 

 

Lets demote our most productive and promising Senior Officer because he made a post that was most accurate about another officer. That should make him be even more motivated to become an even better leader.... (sarcasm) 

 

But hey, without screenshots of proof i guess we are all innocent. Same goes for the botters that are sneaky enough to not make public games. 

 

To be honest i joined under a year ago so i know that mr 2005 will probably shit on me here but i really dgaf. I joined because Ray, Julie and the gang had a good group going for d2. I played hard with them since being here. In that whole entire time Terra has done nothing but make people miserable as far as i can see. You just shit on everything that isn't purple or your own. Going through the ranking has been fun but i have seen how this is going. Once you hit a certain point you become deadlocked without the support of the AFK squad and the biased commanders. Having a sense of humour pretty well shits on your chances at advancing. Never mind thinking for yourself... that's forbidden.

 

Im sure ill be disabled after this because no one dare say anything about Terra and Purplez without getting punished. 

Ill continue to play with all the good gamers i met here if that's the case.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—     Because I was not a socialist.

 

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—     Because I was not a trade unionist.

 

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—     Because I was not a Jew.

 

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I wish you well, you are young and being upset about this will be laughed about by you in time. (if a rank in a game guild upsets you this much lets us pray that it is the worst disappointment in your life, wouldn't that be wonderful ?) 

 

I agree with typereal, two qualified candidates but one open slot. An organization will almost always prefer the one with better people skills (remember your team speak channel bans, Ray? ) I recognize someone with poor people skills (I myself loathe most of humanity) and you appear to me to be one of those who seethes. Step away (as I have done) and realize that OD is NOT the be all and end all, it is dominated by politics (most things are.) Resigning is something you may regret in the future, I applaud your contributions and do NOT think you should resign.

 

And as you said to me, do not be upset when people express their honest opinions, everything changes. By resigning your voice will be silenced and you WILL be judged in the wrong. If you want the rank prove those who oppose you wrong (like DBZ did in his past). If you don't want it just log in and comment rarely.

 

And now an honest fact. purple will make a MUCH better general than you would, she never gets angry that I have seen and almost everyone likes her, being popular has ALWAYS helped in any organization where there is voting.

 

I hope Aerineth(OD) does not consider this being an "expletive", I hate discourtesy and try to be logical and fair in all I do (though it seems a lot of the people I know and liked are leaving.)

I'm sorry, but some behavior from people within the Sr. Officer+ ranks and their responses to this is fairly poor and not within the entity that our generals should be acting.. We have an image to upkeep in OD, as I continuously keep getting told through falsities, so let's keep this in mind. You can be disappointed in someone without degrading your own "maturity."

 

Best wishes, Ray.

Well it sucks your leaving sir. Even though some clearly have a distasteful way of saying farewell you can never fix things by quitting. If you had stayed one thing you would have realized is the generals RARELY agree on everything without a in depth fantastic debate but we ALWAYS keep it respectful. One thing that I learned was you can attack a situation but never the person that is when  a line is crossed that is unacceptable in OD. But none the less it seems you have made up your mind. When you come back do so with a different outlook it'll make your stay much more enjoyable until then best of luck on whatever your future holds.

In hindsight perhaps my post came across as overly antagonistic, it wasn't my intent to pick a fight and I apologize to everyone for that bit of misconduct.

Ray, I won't pretend like your decision to leave isn't immensely frustrating for a lot of reasons, but I can't imagine we could explain our reasons or answer your questions any more thoroughly than we already have, so if you still feel that isn't enough and you want to leave then that is your decision to make. I hope you find what you're looking for.
