tonyJust don't be an asshole if you see work put in for volunteer work. You can dislike its quality, but at the end of the day there is someone trying to improve at what they do and putting them down will keep them from wanting to keep the ball rolling. And if you like the content, support it. Share it to people and give constructive feedback. It feels good to be appreciated for time put in and this shows it.
A lot of people (not necessarily saying league/tftv staff think this way, just in general) view any criticism as being an asshole towards them. Is a very fine line. Also much constructive criticism is completely ignored, not even acknowledged, just ignored because of who it came from.
ShooshBut Aoshi said hes leaving essentially because people are abusive for no reason
Whilst I agree people are overly abusive, there is a reason, the admin team makes many mistakes (personally I disagree with well over half the decisions they make) and they don't own their mistakes, they don't follow their own rules to a T, have very low understanding in player skill level, allow friends to sandbag relentlessly season after season, pussyfoot around to try to appease both teams instead of supporting the team in the right.
The admin team is there to be the faceless organisation that referees players matches. In a competitive game where one team will have to be viewed more favourably for every quarrel that occurs, you will annoy half the people playing. It is inevitable. That is a simple problem with the competitive nature in games. Happens in all sports everywhere.
Shoosh Might be a misinterpretation by me but that sounds like he probably still wanted to do this job but could no longer do with the bullshit
It is a misinterpretation, since he could still do the job but just didn't want to. The BS wasn't preventing anything was just making it annoying for him to continue, I completely understand not wanting to do this job, it seems awful.
ShooshAlso, to expect someone to be mature enough to get past tonnes of hate is not really fair.
It is completely fair for anyone in any position of power to be expected to have a higher maturity level and be held to a higher standard than the rest of the population. This is true for any position in life. If they don't have that level, then they won't get the respect they need to reduce toxicity and abuse.
Shoosh Also, you don't get to tell someone how they're supposed to feel and cope, if they cant do with the hate then its not on you to criticise them for their feelings or ability to handle problems just because you're able to do so
Of course, but I didn't. Nor did I criticise them for not being able to handle it. I've said many times I don't know why they do it, I've always related things to how I think and what I feel from my outside perspective as someone who doesn't flame admins, but also doesn't partake in their own decisions. I know I wouldn't do it for the same reason many others wouldn't. Too much work for too little reward.
Shooshnot even therapists do that.
Plenty of therapists give advice on how to handle feelings. Most of them will ask how the person feels and get the person to actually know how they fell. They won't tell them it's right or wrong, but they will give advice on how to handle real life scenarios that make them feel in an undesirable way. This is what I did. I never ordered anyone to do anything, just gave some advice.
Hopefully I explained why everything in your comment was wrong shoosh.
