As of today, 14th February, I am resigning from the position of JC moderator and FanForce RSA. A number of events have led me to this decision. Here is how I saw it. About a week ago, I posted a reference to Episode-X in Koreynl's user notes. Vertical saw this, checked the IPs of the person who posted it and realised it was different to the last post of mine. What he didn't realise, is that I use the JC both at work and at home; two different IP addresses. Vertical then assumed that someone had hacked my account and I was demoted and all of my mod privileges were revoked. This all happened while I wasn't at home, so when checked my email the next morning I saw a ton of emails discussing that either I was the mole, that I had my account hacked, or it was all a misunderstanding that would be sorted out. This came as quite as a shock, since I had absolutely no idea what happened. I would like to actually thank Vertical for taking the time out to email me the whole story of what happened. The rest is pretty much public knowledge. After not receiving any updates from anyone on TFN staff, I was pretty angry. It's one thing to be demoted, it's another to be demoted and not hear from anyone why or when it would be sorted out. So I decided to take a week off to see if I still wanted to do this job. I've put in hundreds of hours of volunteer time here and I thought that was worth something. After a few days I thought about returning. Then Sebulba-X was made to choose between a position at Episode-X or to continue his FanForce duties in the Celebration forum. The mods were placed under "martial law" it was said. Bobafemme (who is a good friend) objected the decision to make SebX choose, and resigned. Under pinning all of this is TFN's inability to deal with problems and their treatment of their staff. Ternian and BobtheGoon, both respectable members of PSA were banned because they didn't hand over information they didn't have about darthpsychotic. Statements like "If DP is Bin Laden, then Episode-X is Afghanistan" prove that TFN's efforts to smooth over relations with Episode-X are for PR value only. Currently, they are still banned. A note to TFN: darthpsychotic isn't the real problem here; he brings facts to light which show TFN's hypocracy. Fix the problems within your staff and your procedures and you'll find that dp has nothing to show anyone. Enough of the bad stuff. I want to thank a few people who have made my time here very enjoyable. All of the FanForce staff: you guys are awesome! You constantly amaze me with your dignity and determination. If everyone was like you, this place would be Utopia. The mods of the PSA: especially Padme Bra and greencrosscode. Whenever PSA seemed like an insurmountable pile of redundant threads, you guys were there. Thanks for being very cool people. The Aussie mods: Kadue, DA, stinrab, and epic. I guess you'll have to take over the world without me this time. Thank you for reading. Kerryn (Silmarillion) P.S. No, I'm not leaving the boards, just resigning.
