I don't think that's Tenchi's second proposal should have been brought up right now. He has a habit of linking one proposal that will pass with one that won't... Possibly killing both of them in the process.
On the other hand I think that Tom was out of line with his insinuations that Tenchi should be removed from staff and that we should spend the time now coming up with a solution to being able to remove staffers.
Like some people have said on the list this is all boiling down to more animosity that was previously held by all parties involved against each other.
There is no way that if it's left to resolve it self that it will end in a positive manner. For the life of me I don't know if there is anything that can be said to salvage the situation.
Tenchi is being Tenchi. He's making proposals that he thinks should be made. If anyone else were making these they might stand a chance of passing. I often wonder if he shouldn't just find some proxy to make these suggestions... Though I fear they will be written off as the "next Tenchi"
I really don't like this at all... It's beginning to look a lot like markland politics.... I know as people are striving for positions of power that they are bound to occur... But god damnit I'm sick of being right about that. There is bound to be churn this year with Otakon staff... There are a lot of people that I consider to be the upper echelon (sp) of staff that are definitely leaving this year and it completely saddens me. I think it's going to come to the point that enough of them leave, either the next gen of staffers will pick up for them or it will come crashing down in a swift heartbeat.
I've put a lot of time and effort into Otakon. It at a time was my vacation away from Markland... Now it's starting to look like I'm going to have to take a markland vacation away from Otakon.
And anyone who knows anything about my experience w/ that group knows how much Otakon must be spiraling down the politics tube for me to think about that.
Otakon is becoming way to all consuming for me.
On other notes I think I'm going to be happy w/ my classes this semester. I have Professor Fox for 2 classes, Ethics and Logic, and I couldn't be happier about that. He knows how to teach... He knows how to motivate. He is no nonsense, straight to the point.. But he is a blast to listen to.. He was the reason I was excited to come back this semester. I don't know what I'll do next semester when I don't have him.... Eh.. I’ll have to find another Prof who's insane as he is.
I realize now I never did an Otakon report... Beige and green, a bit of sushi, and politics... Bout sums it up..
Well.. Aside from being with my gofer-ops buddies.. The only thing that make Otakon worth while... Friends and all.. Dead dog was an abysmal failure... Without a good part Otakon just doesn't seem to be finished.
People don't realize how much that party means to staff.... It's what gets me through... Because staffing isn't fun. I get virtually no perks worth mentioning, I see very little of the con.. And I get a giant headache... I sometimes forget why I'm staff... Do I really love anime this much that'd I'd sacrifice fun and seeing it for the greater good... *sigh* I wonder why I'm so retarded sometimes... Oh well.. Guess that's what makes us staff.. The willingness to give the fun up for Bullshit politics... Yep... Were all officially retarded.
