[b][u]Amoran vs Akasha: Two Points[/u][/b]
[b]First[/b], Akasha should stop talking... I get the impression that she is just out to get Amoran punished. I do not tell Khalazdad how to run Necrovion, I do not tell my boyfriend how to drive his car, Akasha should not tell Mur how to run MD. If she feels there is something Mur should know and do something about, she should just give him the information she have(in this case, the chat logs she claim to possess, and links to relevant forum threads), give him her suggestion and be done with it. Akasha bashing Amoran and making sarcastic comments were not helpful.
[b]Second point.[/b] Obviously there are unhappy people, people with complaints. and considering the issues involved(strongly affecting MD, Mur himself being accused), they should talk directly with Mur, and Mur need to ask them "what are you hoping to achieve with the complaints?" and "what do you want to see done?" If they are able to provide practical answers and solutions, then, either Mur agrees to work with them, or they can drop the issues or leave MD. Amoran's "I don't want to see anyone hurt/manipulated" is highly uninformative. If she have suggestions for what can be done, she should say it, if there is a specific behavior/action she want stopped, she should say it.
[b][u]RPC Meetings: Because the current system is obviously not working[/u][/b]
Perhaps a system could be implemented, where RPC are free to have their discussions among themselves and such as they wish, but when Mur's decisions are needed, instead of him coming to a meeting like this, each of those that feel they have something to say about the issue will submit to him a "proposal". It will both be their vote on the issue and their statement/explaination of their position, and of what they know, etc. The length of their proposal should of course be as short and concise as possible, with a limit on its maximum length. The proposals will be submitted publicly but will not be up for debate/arguement. Mur can then make a decision, ask for individual clarifications, or ask for all participants to submit a second round of proposals.
I have no solution for this yet, but hopefully when there is a clear system for resolving disputes, things will not get out of hand or get blown out of proportion.
