the only reason i ask all this is because from skimming around the board, the cartel didn’t seem all that active to me. There’s no recent meeting, and most of the threads have little to no replies which doesn’t help attract people to the group in general. I was interested in joining, but seeing as the conditions are currently like that, it doesn’t really make me feel like i can write out a solid, long lasting character there without more help to the clan. So taking into consideration what everyone has said my friends and myself have some ideas we’d like to try and put to use to help the current situation, as we’d hate to see this clan die off.
Yes, I understand that your intentions are good, but really? Going behind the current leader's back to do this, without asking her for permission to take over her clan? Not a good way to be going about this, and even if you didn't mean any harm by it, it's very hurtful to Velvyn.
She's been doing her best, she really is, but people DO have lives off the site. Velvyn's an adult woman with a job and a husband, and she's still getting used to being in a leadership position, as I'm pretty sure that this is her first/second ever time playing a leader.
(edited: not her first time, technically, she was promoted in amalfi heights but felt too new and she hadn't wanted the position anyway. so think about it, if she's leading the cartel after that happened, doesnt that mean she, a, wants the position, and b, has been there for long enough to know how the clan works?)
Okay, please, look at it this way. Say you've been given responsibility over something you didn't ever expect to get. It's not the most important thing in the world, but it's something relatively big, and you're very excited.
Then, someone you've never met starts saying that you're not doing a good enough job, without even taking you and what you've been doing for this thing into consideration. It really stings. It feels like someone's slapped you, physically, in the face.
This all sounds very melodramatic, I know, but I don't think you quite understand how much this can hurt a person. And I tend to work with examples very well.
This goes for everyone on this thread who's been discussing behind Velvyn's back. Please, next time you want to revive a Clan, consider finding out if the leader's roleplayer is still active and doing what they can before you make a post like this.
That is all.
