The biggest annoyance for me atm is constantly disconnecting from the site. Meaning I have to re-add every 5 minutes while also having the stupid fucking disconnecting beeping go off. Just makes me want to shut the site.

RahmedHonestly, with something so heinous, the RGL admins or any TF2 league admins should have a responsibility to bring justice to this individual; being complicit in having them removed from the league is not enough

#37 aoshi steps down in TF2 General Discussion
Doughy I have a feeling there is a major miscommunication between us. I think aoshi hasn't wanted to do this job for about 3 years now. I don't really want to say why I think this. Nonetheless he persevered and continued. My original comment is designed to tell other staff members that they do not have to continue if they do not want to, and to consider themselves first. I think there are quite a few who get an unreasonable amount of hate and if they are negatively affected should stop doing the work.

One thing I feel strongly about is how it shouldn't be viewed negatively to be angry at someone making a mistake. It's a completely reasonable human response to be angry. This thread is a shining example of how that anger is being villainised. The first thought should be how to not make the mistake instead of how to not be angry at someone making a mistake. From my point of view, the staff members in general do not think about how to not make the mistake, but rather pin the blame on the community for being angry.

I disagree with nothing of what you've said here. But people shouldn't stop doing things they love or be forced out of loving things they used to due to hate.
I agree, it is not a bad thing to be angry over something you see as a mistake, however it is a bad thing to project that hate onto someone by sending hate comments, for example. I'm not villainising being upset, I'm villainising sending people hate to the point of stopping doing things they once loved.

I agree, maybe staff should think more about how to not make a mistake but that's not a justification for abuse.
Additionally, if you send someone a criticism and then hate, which comment do you think they're gonna listen to? Hence, seeming like they're pinning blame on the community.

#30 aoshi steps down in TF2 General Discussion
Doughy 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.

I'm sure there has been constructive criticism that has been listened to and some that hasn't. Just because a criticism is made doesn't mean its right, it is up to the individual or organisation whether they want to act on it or not. Acting on every single piece of constructive criticism is insane. I wouldn't know about criticism being ignored because of who the person is - I'm not an admin.

However, the point of Aoshis post is that hes leaving due to the communities immaturity and abuse - thats not constructive criticism.

Doughy 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.

Making mistakes does not equate to having to accept abuse from people? Also, just because something is a mistake to you doesn't mean its a mistake.

Doughy 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

I'd hesitate to call receiving hate for years "annoying". Seems like that's undervaluing the effect it has had on Aoshi.

Doughy 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.

I have been in medical school for three years. From year 1 we have been told that we will receive abuse at some point in our career - I already have. However, at NO point in time is this acceptable. Regardless of your power position. In fact we're allowed to refuse treatment to patients if they're abusive - unless its an emergency. I speak to consultants who have had a tough scenario and be abused - are they not respected enough? Did they deserve it?

Doughy 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.

Not everything people do is about cost-benefit. People do things all the time that don't exactly prove a benefit for them, at least materially, but they might get satisfaction mentally.

Also you essentially said Aoshi isn't mature enough to handle his feelings, how is this not criticism of him?

Doughy 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.

What was your advice?
You said "I also think the staff members should be mature enough themselves to move past the hate". - how is there any other way to interpret that than you're too immature to handle hate so stop. Imagine a therapist saying that lol.

Doughy Hopefully I explained why everything in your comment was wrong shoosh.

Stop being a dick.

#19 aoshi steps down in TF2 General Discussion

But Aoshi said hes leaving essentially because people are abusive for no reason? 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?
The argument of saying "if you dont enjoy something, dont do it" doesnt really fit in this case to me.

Also, to expect someone to be mature enough to get past tonnes of hate is not really fair. Yes, as an adult you should be able to cope with a comment here or there but I couldn't imagine getting 100's for years.
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 - not even therapists do that.

mustardoverlord snip

The timing on this one is 1000% suspicious lol. If they were thinking about cleaning up the discord for a while then the smart decision would be to delay doing this till later when the person you're gonna remove isn't bringing up issues in your discord.

What's with the "and thats why I messaged you" - doesn't change shit. Its like calling someone a stupid fucking idiot with a smiley face at the end to make it less harsh - still called someone a stupid fucking idiot.

Also, imagine your league owner coming into a post and actually getting a positive response from the post from the community for once and then just fucking it up by doing a dumb move lol.

Stupid fucking idiot :)
