: Dear Ops, Op Managers and Sr Staff,
: Take no offense to what I am about to say, it's not personal, it's just reality.
OK am listening
: Based on all of the replies to your post and my post, NOBODY wants any rules changed.
There were a few suggestions for change made I would not call the people who made these suggestions nobody.
: What they do want is for the rules to be enforced.
The rules are enforced. A few issues have occurred because of the small size of the ladder and suggestions made by players prompted Senior Staff to want this discussion started.
: It's really that simple.
: What the players want is an op that is there daily and interacting, observing and enforcing the rules.
In other words you want a cop policing the ladder and looking over every players shoulder.
: Nothing against our current op, but the op has played a total of 8 games all year with the last matches back in March.
You sure that was not your record you were looking at? You played in March then came back in October.
I stop in the ladder room regularly to see who is there, look at chat for issues, fix the greet if needed ... Most times no one is there but sometimes I am lucky to find someone and I get a chance to play. My last game was in September not March. I hope to get another soon.
: Perhaps the op has other matters to attend to, that's fine but perhaps it's time the op resigns and somebody can get in there and do what needs done timely and efficiently.
You think you can do a better job by all means put in an application and then the ladder can vote for you.
: This ladders needs attention from an Op. The op should be promoting the ladder, pushing it out there to get others to join or get back into playing.
Actually, everyone on this ladder should be promoting it, pushing it out there and getting others to join.
: The op should be enforcing the rules timely, effectively and fairly.
Granted this is a given.
: If something is observed that is going wrong, the op should try to correct it then and there and not when and if someone complains.
The Ladder hated SYSOPS back in the day but seems you are wanting a cop to patrol the game room again ... the purpose of contact us is for you to let us know when there is an issue.
: As I said this is not personal, but you guys need to read the replies and you'll see the players don't want rule changes nor do they want something jammed down their throats from the leadership team that is nowhere around to observe or take part in the action.
Nothing is getting jammed down anyone's throats, issues have been brought forward and they are presented for ladder discussion. Changes will occur through ladder vote only
: This ladder is the oldest active ladder Cases still has, stop trying to change what doesn't need changed. Other ladders tried these items and the ladders FAILED miserably.
Actually Cases does have other ladders that are quite successful.
: Learn from prior history and please again, leave this ladder alone.
Again, nothing is happening without a ladder vote. This discussion was started because players have asked about making changes and issues have occurred in the past.
