    (I felt purple would go good with the white. You're welcome c: )

    Tonight someone decided to change the way I look at staff.
    Though I might be late to the appreciation party, It's better late than never, right?

    This post mainly goes out for Sirius (Formally known, is now SiruisClaus.)
    He decided to come to me on this night to speak to me.
    Of course rather than scolding me for the amount of warns I have, and how I could be being a better player on J&H, he took it upon himself to come and apologize too me


    Big whoop right, not a big deal you might think? Wrong.

    He's reached out to me to apologize for how he's acted, for how he may seem so strict in forum posts, or appeals I've made.
    He shows genuine concern for how I might feel, even though I'm in the wrong 100% here.

    Why? Why would someone apologize when, they're only going their job, or when they have done absolutely nothing wrong?

    Interesting concept to think about, right? Probably hard to grasp why he would be saying sorry for such things.
    But really it's simple, he wants to better himself, the community. Think of it in his very own words;

    "I understand.. though you're of higher power. It would be expected of you to rule strictly. Why change that?" I ask.
    "Hm. Being of higher power means you should lead by example, yes. But, that doesn't mean you should constantly be demeaning people when they break rules.
    In my own opinion, instilling fear in those who do break the rules only creates paranoia to break rules again.
    Furthermore, if a staff member is understanding, and supportive..
    then I believe they may be inspired to change for the better of the community."

    He responds.

    Doesn't seem so "not a big deal" Anymore, does it?
    Things like these, shouldn't go unnoticed, rather. Why not show appreciation in staff when they're working to better themselves, and the community?

    This here shows that our superiors are not evil, or terrible. Rather, they're kind, friendly, and only wish to make your experience here better. For everyone.

    This responsibility is an extremely hard one, very frustrating at times, and emotionally draining.
    Not all helpers go onto higher ranks simply because they cannot handle the stress.

    But for those who do, who fight through the crowd of toxicity that this server possesses at times, are extremely underappreciated.

    I hope you read this and see a different side to the staff that intimidate you on a daily basis.
    I hope you look, and try to have more understanding and patience in staff.

    Please feel free to post about your own experiences of staff doing something for the good, like I have tonight//
    or don't, take all that's been said here and carry on with positive examples and rule better influence on other members of this server- or more so, family.

    Concluding here tonight, I leave you with a good mood I hope. Goodnight Jerry and Harry.

    I was on my way to make a post very similar to this, with me seeing this is chat yesterday while in a lobby on the server. (No, they are not real names.)

    [Donator]Fillername123: OMG the staff here suck D#$K

    [VIP]
    Fillerdude728: Agreed!!! omg they are terrible like wow!

    FillerGurl666: Yeah they are the worst. I should be staff LOL.

    [Hero]DonutzAndLlamas: I hate staff.

    This is upsetting. Staff here work so hard. Yes, they arnt perfect, but they sure as hell try their best. The hatred against staff is toxic on this server. The abuse they take is crazy. I am constantly told how staff ignore people, when they are just afk. NEWS FLASH!!! Staff has lives too. They take breaks to eat, drink, and use the restrooms, just like we do. If people get so upset over staff being AFK, then why do I see dozens of people saying AFK in minigames? I respect you for making this post. Its 100% true. You earned my follow.

    I'm glad you're thinking differently about the staff team, especially since I'm a staff member now.
    This made me happy though, thanks. c;

    @Sirius is one hell of a dude and staff member. I got a lot of respect for him. I know he hasn't been feeling too good recently, but we're all rooting for him.

    Indeed comrade.
    I have a lot of respect for Sirius as well, and I know he represents a good amount of the staff team too.
    I have not directly talked to him in a while, mostly because TeamSpeak on my phone broke for me, (which is something I've touched upon a bit if anyone read my info page recently), but to me I do not believe it matters in this situation.
    I know for fact that he has done a lot of good for our community, even before he became a staff member, and I am quite sure that he won't stop doing good now. Everything he has done up until this point has been near-perfect in my eyes, and the influence he has brought upon our community is staggering, and has made this place much better.
    While I am not really up-to-date on a lot of things here at the current time, I can judge based off what I have seen in the past and in the present. From what I have seen and from what I continue to see, he is doing an exceptionally good job at what he is doing, and the fact that your making this post proves my hypothesis. I feel as if the positivity that Sirius and others have expressed in recent months is being echoed all throughout the community, and I hope that continues.

    By you posting this, as I mentioned previously, Sirius has clearly been doing a good job as a staff member, and as a human being, thus keeping my respect for him intact.
    Thanks to the staff team for doing a good job, and to everyone in the community for continuing to make this place what it is.

    The problem isn't the staff team in general, the problem is some members in them who don't take their job seriously enough, or too seriously depending on the case.

    Sirius is a good staff.

    But you haven't seen what some others have seen. I've seen some staff just think they're the best, start ignoring their friends, insulting others...

    This has gone a lot better lately, but this is why some people have a bad vision of staff.

    Understandable, but to base opinion over the entire staff team from one bad staff, is like saying "One cat scratched me, so I hate them all"

    Players should be more considerate.

    EXACTLY!

    To say that after one or two bad expieriences with staff, calling them all bad is unfair. Sometimes people are mean, dont blame humanity. Even if staff are being mean, just report them instead of complaining 24/7. I gotta say, this thread is heavily needed.

    I have experienced once by warned. But I dont complain, because all my actions violated the rules. Yes, talking strictly is intentionally hurt their feelings and felt humiliated. There is a problem I see that sometimes they are stressed on something outside, spent much time on moderating, or they can't handle it.

    If they warned you mistaken, then dont be mad or talk shit toward them. Everyone makes mistakes including us. No one is perfect.

    All I can see he did a excellent job, seeing taking care of issues, solving reports, and guiding new players. Hes not that harsh atleast.
    One day staffs can't abide here, right?

    In my whole point, there's still a chance for @Sirius and others. We appreciate for their contributions to keep safe for our community.

    Respect for @Sirius.
