"It was for writing something that shook the PPC up a great deal, did not actually inform people about- when this first came up she expressed concerns about Drama and so on. She was assured it would not be the case, and we also had a look over at one of the items involved. We were given and informed of one thing, and this presented us with something entirely different." Okay, that's something I didn't know about. I accept that. I do have a habit of butting into things without all the facts, yes. It's a flaw of mine. :/
As for the Newbie/Oldbie thing, you misunderstand what I am saying. I didn't mean that you suddenly become an Oldbie. I know the term quite well. What I mean is, is that time should not be an issue, in that case.
Let's say "Sam" and "John" are both people who have been given permission. "John" has been around for a long time.
A good few years, and has had permission for equally as long. (Not including the standard one month, of course.)
"Sam" has only been around for a month or so, and has very recently received permission. Therefore, they are both equal in that regard, and each one should have just as much right, etc. to give concrit.
And both their opinions should be regarded equally, new or Old.
In fact, "Sam" could well be a much better writer than "John". But just because "John" isn't the best writer, his concrit should still be regarded the same as "Sam"'s. Do you get what I'm saying?
As for the fact that people will be "forced" to follow what he's doing. Of course they don't. Look at Makes-Things. He apparently "died". But everyone just kind of Ignored that.
You are right, in that I probably don't know as much as I should. But I spent a while on the wiki, reading up on crisis' and why they are bad. The conclusion *I* came to, is because they were too frequent, and that one of them killed off a major character. That has not been done here. hS' has "killed" two minor, non-important flowers, who as far as I'm aware, haven't been touched on in ages.
If you want to use them, you can hand-wave what happened.
But I think my point from before still stands. Them dying has opened up opportunities for people to make new flowers for those departments, and therefore, make things a bit more "fresh".
But that's just my opinion, and I understand that most people here are happy with cozy regularity. (No sarcasm intended there.)
On to my next point. "Now, they are worried because they think they have to follow it, since hS wrote it."
IMO, hS writing it shouldn't have anything to do with it, that's part of my Newbie/Oldbie thing. It shouldn't matter if he's hS. it shouldn't matter who wrote it, unless they are called Jay or Acacia. At least, that's what I think.
Nowhere has it been expressed that we have a ban on serious things in the PPC. Nowhere at all has that been the main concern here with Huinesoron's works. The concern is that he is writing things... more
First, you're right, your opinion has value whether you're old or new. This doesn't have anything to do with that, and it's not really about writing quality. The problem here is that you don't have... more
