I would like to be the first to apologize to all of the members who had no part in the drama that flooded our forum in the last few days. I will be the first to admit that the way I handled the demotions were both unprofessional and very cold. My intention wasn't to make anyone look bad or to be harsh about it, it was to keep everyone informed about why those decisions were made.
I did in my free time privately message Cat and Tale and expressed how sorry I was for what had occurred and how it all came out. It was never my intention to hurt anyone's feelings or make them feel bad. I had plans to make things right with them down the line and I still plan on doing that, but we have to meet in the middle and it felt/feels like I'm the only one trying to get there.
As far as 99% of the staff leaving, that was their decision. I will say though that there wasn't enough time to get to know me or my personality and we just didn't gel together when it came to communication, often I would get no replies to certain ideas or suggestions. Maybe its also my fault for not pushing enough or being aggressive. I wish each and every one of them the best of luck, and I hope to see them around and hopefully we can make things right again.
We have had a few staff applications sent to us already and I do appreciate that. We'll be taking a look at them and even some of the old applications to see who would fill our missing roles. I plan on hiring from within first because of the value our KHV members bring. Special roles like ( technical admins ) may be brought in from other sites to assist me in the process if we can't fill that role within KHV.
I would also like to mention that the drama ends today. Any threads or posts regarding the drama will be removed and warnings will be messaged to the users directly. I truly apologize how it all went down and I'll take full responsibility and learn for this.
Cat called me a few names that I shouldn't mention on here, and Tale refused to listen to me when I told him to stop re-posting threads of continuous drama. They're not perma bans, its just until they cool off.
