Abdication of the Throne

I, Faceman, abdicate as your King

As I have always said in times like this: Timing is OP. I just want you all to know that this has been about 2 to 3 months in the making and wasn't at all influenced by recent events or anyone in particular. I've been a part of management and leadership of this community for 4 years as of today, and in the last 4 months my playtime has diminished to nearly non-existent levels. With those levels of activity, I can't dedicate myself fully to my role of King as I should. With this, I have put through Parliament the means to step down as King, but keep this place alive and running.

What on Earth(cube)?

The proposed idea is that I detach myself from the game and the management of Everneth to form an oversight committee with the name of Community Relations Council. The goal is to have nonpartisan members that do not play the game nor serve any official role in the community so that there is no existing bias to be had for personal gains. This is the following text in the amendment as proposed to Parliament:

Quote

Community Relations Council

  • The Community Relations Council (herein known as "CRC") is an unaffiliated and unbiased group managed by Faceman.
  • The CRC is available to settle conflicts arising between staff and members.
  • The members of the CRC are prohibited from playing as well as serving in any way, shape, or form as management of the community.
  • The CRC reserves the authority to remove members of staff from the results of a vote of no confidence, or from a community petition to remove the King for reasons of corruption and outright abuse.
  • The CRC reserves the right to amend this section with or without notice at any time as needed to fulfill its purpose and duties to the community.
  • In order to dissolve staff, a vote of no confidence must be reached with a simple majority of staff at the time of the vote.
  • The vote is to last for the standard 5 days to allow enough time to participate.
  • In the event that a staff member must be removed for abuse/corruption reasons, the community is advised to contact the CRC directly instead of staff. It is suggested to have at least 10 people willing to sign off on possible corruption allegations.

To put this in perspective, I am basically the equivalent of a labor relations specialist that comes in for arbitration. If the community has a problem with leadership, I will step in to solve the problem and if needed: remove staff members. This way the community does not have to die out with my resignation and can continue on free from fear of corruption of the upcoming Kings to take my place in the throne. That aside, I am taking a sole technical role, helping the new King with system related things only. I will, as well as any other member of the CRC, have no affiliation with the staff from hence forth and no say in the day to day operations. The CRC and myself will be available for any problems that arise between players and staff and nothing further.

So who shall be king?

As laid out in the proposal to parliament, I am selecting my successor before fully detaching from my duties. As such I feel that it would best serve the community to name a well-respected player, long time adviser to me and other staff members, and just a plain old good friend to take my place. This player is none other than the one you all know and love: GreasyTroll4.

He began playing with this community almost 2 years ago and begun his first run at staff as a Moderator of the VanEvo community (our former namesake) and again began a similar role when Everneth was formalized a year ago. Since then he has risen to the level of Admin and continued that very same level of respect, likeness, and overall friendship to everyone here. He's had his ups and downs like we all do, but overall, I personally believe that he will be able to fill my shoes over time and eventually make his own mark on this community. Its my firm belief that while GT is at the helm, the CRC should never need to be called upon and that alone should be a good sign of faith to you all in trusting him while he gets the training wheels ripped off his bike and leads Everneth henceforth.

Lastly, I'd like to thank you all for being a part of this great server, and for tolerating me bumbling through as the owner of such a great group of people. Thank you so much!

Glory to the Order!

And lastly...

The King is dead. Long live the King!

Faceman
