View Full Version : A Dark Day...

05-08-2003, 08:34 PM
Hey guys, it's been a long time. Recently I've been extremely busy as I've taken up Aikido and at the same time have been involved in a play and studying for finals AND working. Unfortunatly, it doesn't look like my load is going to get any lighter this summer. My assistant director is moving to Nashville and is teaching some classes in the area and wants me to come up there and help him get started this summer, and when I'm not up there I've still got my job at a pizza place and my Aikido. What it all boils down to is this: I am not going to have time for the PA. This doesn't mean that I won't be playing Galaxies, when I have time I will be working it into my schedule, but I won't have the ability to play god with you all. I'm not sure who my replacement is going to be yet, I'm leaning towards Jan as a replacement but that is under discussion. It's not that I want to leave you guys, but I don't feel like it would be right for me to hold such a powerful role when I will do as little as I probably will be able to do. As it is I feel like the fairest thing that I can do is become an associate of the Associates, a guest of honor if you will, and play with you all when I can. I don't know if I will stay an "official" member, I'm going to wait and see how much or little I play before I make that kind of a decision. I'll try and be on the board a little more often now, but for now I wish you all good luck and may the Associates prosper.

Sorry to see you go Gaal.

Likewise; sorry to see you go Gaal. Like I was telling Set though, RL is more important than any of this stuff. It's a shame that you wont be going into the galaxy with us, but you'll be there in our hearts.

05-08-2003, 09:43 PM
Now now jack, I didn't say I wasn't going into the galaxy. I just said that I wasn't going to be your leader anymore. I'll be playing the game for damn sure, and will undoubtedly stop by the town time and again to check up with you guys and probably even group up with some of you. Hey, on the bright side I guess being a loner will go along more with my RPing.....

05-09-2003, 12:58 AM
I think you are doing the right thing Gaal. I would like you to be a member of the =A=, regardless. Let's just hope all this stuff you are going to have to do works out for the best.

05-09-2003, 03:15 AM
well you were a good leader in your time in sorry to see you leave your postition..... as for new leadership

are we gonna have a vote on it a group desicion or are you the current all mighty leader decide

05-09-2003, 10:53 AM
I think that there is going to be a leaders meeting and someone will be selected from the current leaders.

I don't want to see you go, but I hope that I'll still get a chance to play with you when the game is released :)

Yeah i talked about this with Gaalgoth and all....
you guys probably wonder why im not gonna take over... and i would tell... but its a bit weird :D but dont worry... for whoever takes over the PA.. i will do just as much :D

05-09-2003, 09:31 PM
so is helmet gonna be the new leader or set maybe ....
how about this
why dont you all just have joint leadership if you know what i mean. say wraith,jan,set,helmet and galgooth just have equal positions i mean thats kinda what its like allready and it would save the fuss of selecting a new leader and all the hibedy wibbedy jibedy shwibedy

we will dicuss it 2 morrow :D

Personally, I think it has already worked great with all the leaders having a rather same level of 'power'. The reason it works is because the leaders are reasonable and decent and good and thoughtful and compassionate. Don't think anything else!

But seriously, yes, I see little need in having one person being elevated to the role of 'absolute leader'. I think what's great thus far is the fact that we work as a very flat organization. Let's leave rigid, stale hierarchic structures to Darth_Sidious, while we build a PA where the PA is made by the members, for the members. ;)

you said it girl :thumbsup: :D

05-11-2003, 07:25 AM
I am sorry to see you go Gaalgoth, you probally don't know me but i am a new member to the =A=. I was in your group as well as a bounty hunter. :)

Hope we will see you in Galaxies now and then, and can't wait to chat to you more formally, For now this is bye from ReAPer.

It is very bad to read this, and to see you go. I hope you will become a member, and venture into the universe with us.

I have but one thing to tell you:

Whatever you do, whereever you go, the =A= will also be there! :)

You can count on it, buddy. ;) :thumbsup:

05-11-2003, 03:37 PM
Jan, do you have a habit of writing material for Sting? ;)

No, never heard much of Sting. :)
Not enough to know what the songs are called anyway, let alone what the text is. :D

Thanks for the support you guys, it really means alot. As it turns out I'm not going to be doing the Aikido, but I still have a lot on my plate. I'm not sure as to what's going to end up happening this summer, but if the game keeps getting pushed back i may not be in as much of a jam as I thought I was going to be in.

Well I am still sad to see you go, you probably don't remember me cause I'm not on the forums alot but...well one thing is I thought no one on these forums was a practioner of Aikido, well I hope to see you in game. My best wishes Gaalgoth...

You want to know what I think? (No you don't) You should just have the leaders just rule over the PA, instead of having a single man. Make a Council of some sort
