I give you a 1, rant to come later.
LOLOLOLOL So I typed out a very very very long response to all the problems I have with GF and Aeria as of late but I was logged out and lost it. Soooo here's it all summed up. This is my personal opinion take it how you will.
Issues I have:
- EU Staff Changes: This doesn't have to be a bad thing, but they lack essential knowledge of our game, it's processes, rules, and social norms. Which creates a tonne of problems. Better integration and knowledge/norm transfer would have been very appreciated.
- GF GS Team: Oh this team. I met some of the most amazing people while I was on this team, it's sad to see it in the state it's in. Basically halved in size in a matter of months, no communication between us, many are extremely unhappy and frustrationed, and no real leader or manager when we really need one. The quick and constant PoC changes were enough to make anyone go crazy. But yeah I really think GS applications should be opened up and all current GSes should have to reapply because for a long time no one has looked at the group and been like "hmmm how are the GSes fairing and should they all still be on the team?", the answer to some of the remaining ones is no. Many that are left are pretty unhappy, getting new recruits onto the team may help revitalize it.
- Promotions: I wish they'd at least give the name of the PM so people can properly direct their frustrations. The economy is in shambles but we have more agressive promotions and less counter actions, counter measures, or counter efforts than ever.
- Website log out issues: LOL yeah... shame really I was pretty proud of my near 800 word+ feedback.
As an overall, I"m pretty unhappy with Aeria and how it's decided to handle GF. GF GS applications should open again or at least reapplications really need to be done. Also, I'm excited for AK and hope that if it ever goes through this process of having the EU offices take it over, it goes over better than it did for us. I care a lot for GF and the community, and it's pretty frustrating to see it in the state it's in.
Btw kudos for finally having the new reply button actually leading you to the log in screen once you've been logged out again /o/
