Hello fellow members of Hydrocity-EveryoneIsFightingAndBitchingAboutEverything-Gaming.
We are a gaming community full of amazing members that just want to have fun. You guys aren't allowing people to have fun! The reason HYG was so famous and enjoyable back in the day is because people were allowed to do what they want and have fun!
The amount of flame wars I saw on a daily basis while on HYG back when it was a glorious server full of people was gargantuan. People swore, people argued, people fought, and people disagreed. There was literally 2 forum moderators and 3 moderators moderating over hundreds of people.
HydroCityGaming's problem now is that there is too much administration/moderation. We need to decrease numbers. 2-3 mods and 1-2 Super moderators in-game and 2 forum moderators. We don't need so many moderators! When we have several moderators it creates struggles for power. 1 moderator argues with another and then boom a giant shitshow. The community just wants to have fun.
Why is everyone being so stuck up and forcing the rules upon everyone?
Picture this: Your at school and that one super dick of a teacher thats always mad and hates their life because they have to deal with you children tells the class your not allowed to talk at all. What do you usually do? You and your friends all start whispering and get louder and louder until the teacher tells you to be quiet. You hate the teacher because he/she is so stuck up and rule FORCING that you aren't enjoying yourself and your having no fun and that teacher is the only teacher that acts like this. You hate that teacher and you hate that class. Do you want to go back to that class tomorrow? No you dont.
Right now thats how the community feels. All of the needlessly excessive amounts of moderators and admins are forcing the rules upon the community and being that one teacher that ruins everyones day. We need to lower the amount of moderators and everyone needs to pull their foots out of their asses and stop being so strict and uptight.
LagiaCruz is the definition of a perfect administrator/moderator. He is always open to suggestion, he never really posts splitting up a flame war or argument, he rarely warns for swearing, he wants the community to have fun and he is never biased towards things, he doesn't make a big deal out of little things that don't need to be transformed into giant shitshows, and he doesn't start flame wars or argue/talk down to members of the community. I don't think i've ever seen a single person have a problem with Lagia. Lagia just wants the community to have fun. I know if something got REALLY OUT OF HAND he would step in and apprehend the situation. Just because a flame war or argument or anything like is currently happening or going to happen doesn't mean he has to step in. Kudos to you Lagia.
To the other moderators/administration: What I just described is what you should look up to. You don't need to be so stuck up about the rules and power-hungry because you have power. Just because you have power doesn't mean you have to use it. Just let the community have fun. The community just wants to have fun and it is as simple as that. If the community isn't having fun then your not going to have a community. Lets decrease the numbers of staff and increase the numbers of regular community members. 2-3 mods 1-2 Super moderators and 2 forum moderators. We want positions like these to be special and be worth working for. People should look up to these positions and dream of being in them. Right now there is so many moderators etc... that it isn't really an accomplishment.
Ide love to see this server grow back to it's former glory. And how it is right now isn't going to get us there.
Thank you for taking your time to read this. I'de appreciate if there is MATURE conversation about this topic below.
