[Denied] Dea's Lore Dev re-application

Recommended Posts

Ckey/BYOND Username: Dea Tacita!

Position Being Applied For (coder, mapper, spriter): Lore Dev

Past Experiences/Knowledge: Was previously a Lore Dev here before I had to leave due to work/Medical stuffs.

Examples of Past Work:

Several Alien species posts I made on the old Forums http://auroraserver.freeforums.net/thread/701/minor-races

Created the Kocasslani

Worked on a great deal of the Tajara lore (Which has since been rewritten) along-side with Nik

There's a bunch others but many of you guys are familiar with them already so I think it's redundant.

Preferred Mode of Communication (Skype, Steam, etc.):Skype

Additional Comments:

I know I'm not that great of a lore-writer but I generally think I have decent ideas. But I do often ignore 100% realism in all components (Which other lore-writers are a lot better at doing.) Their editing has made some stuff I co-authored rather amazing

While I think you're a great player and have a lot of great ideas, I'm going to have to reject your re-application.

When you left, it caused a lot of drama and confusion that the lore team had to sort through. Some members are still trying to make sense of what exactly happened, and it's left a bad impression.

I'm not opposed to you applying in the future, but as of right now, I don't think either you or the lore team would benefit much if you were brought back on board.

Sorry Dea, but while you may have had some talent for writing, you were not a good fit as a lore developer. Whatwith the refusal to accept criticism of any kind, the constant shouting at members of the team over Skype if they tried to change details in your writings, deliberately keeping things under wraps without sharing them with the rest of the team just so you could handwave portions of your lore that we saw and didn't agree with, and your general uncooperative and haughty attitude.

I'd give this a -1.

I'd just like to make it clear that Tablespoon's decision was not unilateral and has the support of several members of the lore team, me included. My personal reasons primarily revolve around reactions to criticism (though I have a problem with that myself :? ). In the meantime, you can post suggestions within the suggestions forum. It'd be nice to get feedback on the lore.

When I joined the lore team, we had initial discussions regarding the lore. But in those initial discussions, you sometimes created some antagonizing situations whenever it seemed like I was trying to write or create something that countered your written lore or went against your vision. Added onto this you tended to hoard lore and refused to share it with me so I could better adapt my writings to it because it 'wasn't finished'.

Regardless, I'm choosing to abstain on your application. I was not on the lore team long enough with you to get a true indication of your character.
