ok announcement has been made, now I can express myself about it.
I first need to strongly mention I am not mad at anybody, I am expressing myself about how the entire leader team, not specifically anymore, made a mistake that irritated me a lot. how “a lot”? if i’m not very mad i won’t waste my time writing this post with my super poor english.
four days ago, @TB23 got promoted to leader with the leader badge. no problemo, usually I don’t think anyone will go check the leader badge section, there’s absolutely no point doing that. so I have nothing against that.
and then, theatrical bombshell! a few hours later, tb also got added to leaders’ tag list! in real life, when you learn that one of your friends gets a super rare promotion, what would be your usual reaction? being jealous or happy for him/her/them. and I was happy for tb, so I congratulated him in the y-taco! a few other people then did too, if I remember well it was @Dragongirl1264 and @Friday. @FearlessPhoenix then went on board and deleted our congrats posts. I did not turn mad because I know fear will post something explaining to us that. BUT I did when I read this:
ok yes I surely understand the reason for keeping everything secret, but how on earth are we going to know we have to shut our mouth if you choose to point out to our face the fact that tb got promoted?? because I’m going to tell ya that the leaders’ tag list is very visited, mostly because someone needs a leader to be online, maybe for moderation, maybe for asking a question, etc etc. so don’t EVER expect that nobody’s going to see the red button among every blue one - if you want to keep the promotion secret, and if you don’t post anything similar to “you have eyes but don’t spoil stuff”, then don’t put tb in the tag list and boom classified case.
you could possibly reply something like “well tb is now a leader, we’re just waiting for @Friday to finish promoting him and then we can move on to the announcement…” then yea, what’s the point adding him to the tag list? tb can’t even do any moderation actions because he has to “keep everything secret”! and if it’s simply to allow him view the leaders’ special category, which i have no clue if it exists, well he won’t suffer during these 4 days without that special category.
like i said earlier, this post is not addressed to anyone specifically, this is to the entire leader team. @TB23, even if this post is around you and your promotion, no worries you didnt do anything wrong, i have nothing against you
and last but not least, do not like this post because it creates a feeling of upvoting/downvoting when people will reply to this post. thank you :)
