It was eventually going to happen one way or another, but I'm deciding to choose it now out of all days. Funny that it happens to be on Valentines Day, but I digress.
So here comes the why, you know why am I leaving, what is going on that is hindering me from staying on the site (even though nothing is), etc etc. Well quite frankly, I don't really sign into KH13, and if I do, it's because of some shitstorm that a few of the members are talking about, or the mods are talking about some random thing. Keep in mind, I have EASY ACCESS TO ALMOST ALL OF THE MODS, so I basically know that shit's going down. I mean, why bother signing in when you think to yourself and say, "Well what purpose do I have on KH13? News is going to be slower than hell for a really long time, more new members are running the place, and a lot of the old friends I made said firetruck it, I'm leaving?" Essentially, I'm too old for KH13. I was here my Freshman year, and now I'm taking a leave at the end of my Senior year. That's about 4 years, marked in August.
But that's not why I'm TRULY leaving, no no no, this may be a long term effect that probably would of made me never leave, but an immediant cause has lead me to turn my back to KH13.
Instead, I'm taking my leave after the disrespect towards the mods themselves, particular one that I've grown pretty fond of. That would be Cricket. Now let me give you guys a little history lesson. Cricket and I have been good friends on KH13 since the beginning, about 2009. He would have occasional chats, and this is before Cricket had become a mod. See, I don't suck up to any mods, nor do I intend to. I may have the mods on my contact list but I don't go after them and consistently talk to them in a chance that I might be praised by them or some shit. Sounds ridiculous doesn't it? Yeah well, it's happen all too many times in the past. But regardless, I've been friends with Cricket for a while, and even after her return from a long break had the conversations started. It was even to a point where that I have her phone number and we could text, but there is issues going on with this texting, so I won't go into any further details.
Now I'm going to give you a few details about Cricket, and I know that she may not want me to share some details, but I need you guys to understand her circumstances. First off, Cricket, or as I know her as Brittany, is 21 and working a job (in which the managers treat her like shit, mind you), so she's pretty busy with her life. Another thing that all of you should pay attention to is that Cricket is not quite healthy, and I mean is a few disorders that greatly affects her. Schizophrenia, bipolar, panic attacks, depression, and a few other stuff that she has to take quite a few pills to keep herself sane. You guys may see her in a positive mood and always trying to help, believe me I thought she was perfectly fine, but she's not fine. But she's trying to do her best in keep up with the site and Internet friends, including myself. And that leads me to my last point, Cricket loves this job being a moderator of the site. She likes helping people, she wants to keep everything safe, and she is very fair with the members around here.
So what does those three points mean? They tie up to the events that happened about roughly two weeks, in which Cricket attempted to do her JOB AS A MODERATOR and received backlash because of it. This regards back to the thread Sora96 made about Aaron. Mind you that this was against one of the newest Random rules that DC himself had made that one thread may not be directed towards a member or group of members, because many people may not get the jokes or it could possibly lead into targeting other members. That's the gist of it. So one mod, Kishira in particular, closed the thread due to violation of said rule. All was fine and dandy, until DC took the opportunity to go against his new rule, that you guys PERSONALLY COMPLAINED to him about, and opened the thread, basically breaking the rule.
Now I don't know how Cricket got into finding this thread, but all I know is that she took it upon herself to close the thread, stating that once again, goes against one of the rules implemented by DC himself. And what happened then? Cricket gets backlashed by you guys for doing her job, and I'm talking to you Sora96, you broke the rule and you're going to complain about Cricket? Unfortunately, I'm going to get back to you in a few, so keep tight my little Australian.
At this point, Cricket basically said firetruck it, opened up the thread, and this is her last time dealing with this site because she's not signing in anymore. So because of the member's actions and AN ADMIN'S AS WELL, one mod is now officially gone. Was it worth all this trouble guys? Was it really?
Now for a similar scenario that also happened a while back. Hatok was getting pretty salty with this whole Random rule that spamming and breaking rules and ruining his own good image in mere minutes was worth it. Cricket had to be the one who banned him for his own sheer actions, and yet, I've had Cricket tell me that you guys were sending PMs or chat messages, whatever you were sending her, hating on her or saying bad things about Cricket. I don't care who did it or who was harassing Cricket, but I KNOW some of you people did it, and even for someone like me who doesn't go on KH13, I don't appreciate it. That's because even though I want to stay away from stupidity of this forum, I want Cricket to do her best in regulating the forum because I know she's a REALLY good mod and she doesn't deserve this kind of disrespect. After the event of Sora96's thread, I was tempted to make this thread back then instead of now, but I did not make such thing. I had better things to do than to tell you guys what I'm saying right now, but I should of done it.
Why the thread now? Well I was talking with a member on Skype because Cricket happened to sign in on Skype, and he linked me to this status from a member, and he had figured from this status that Cricket was leaving However, when I read it myself, a completely different thought came into my head because of what Cricket had said to me about this said person beforehand.
I will not link you to the status, but I will quote the status and I will tell you after who made that status.
Farewell to a legend. She helped make me a better person. If it wasn't for her, I might have left KH13.
Anyone want to take any guesses in who made that status? I mentioned the person above, and that's Sora96. Makes sense, right? The two had been good friends to an extent that is similar to my friendship with Cricket. Unfortunately, it seems that Sora96 doesn't feel that way anymore, and so, I'm going to reveal to you guys what he said to Cricket that absolutely made me angry to no end. I had posted on his status of what he originally said, but he chose to delete my comment, which comes to show that people don't want the truth revealed and to make themselves look better in the eyes of others. So here's the comment:
Sora96: I don't need you like I used too
How messed up is that? Do you guys think that's fair that he can say she's a "legend", but make her out to be nothing more than just a simple tool? Do you guys think that Cricket made him a better person when he bluntly told her that he no longer needs her as a friend?
Members of KH13, you guys, Sora96, Cricket, everyone here is a person, NOT AN OBJECT. No one should be or needs to be treated as a tool, even if you are no longer friends with somebody. No one is slave, pawn, or a servant to any one and their causes or objectives. You can say I'm taking this the wrong way, I am most certainly not. Friendship isn't some little hobby that you can just drop because of whatever reason, it's a driving force for human beings, it's something that brings us happiness and makes us understand that NO ONE, regardless of any situation, is alone in this world. Never tell me that you have no friends or your family doesn't care about you, there's is always ONE person out that is willingly to come up to you and shake your hand. Never forget that guys. A lot of people I met on here are gone, and even the friends that I made, I myself had issues with, but never once had I questioned the quality of our friendships, nor did I say that the friendship is not needed anymore.
This is why I'm upset, and this is why I'm not going to let these things slide by. I have seen hypocritical situations multiple times on this site, and I'm someone who does stand up to it, but this one, I am pouring my entire soul into this post because I've boiled up so things about this site. I stopped complaining about the issues of this site since they never helped me feel better, and I had to move on from stupid shit to focus on my high school. Call me immature back then, but I've grown up, and there's no need for growing, all there is is more knowledge and more wisdom. But I've had enough, the injustice created by some people are not being accounted for, and my friend, Cricket, had to put up with so much of it that she actually began to SUFFER. And I don't use suffering lightly, there is no means of over-exaggeration. It's to a point where she broke down, she had to avoid the site, she even had to avoid DC, which congratulations DC, you must be doing something right for her to do that. And this is the final straw that I will send hardship towards Cricket.
So to Sora96, I know you were will more than likely report this thread because I'm calling you out, but this is by no means of slander towards you. I have no hard feelings for you, I don't even hate you, even though all those times I kept saying to myself, "I'm really despise this kid", I never thought you were truly a bad person. Maybe not quite bright (that's my opinion of course, you've already proven to me how so, so don't question it) and way too firetrucking egotistical that it pained just about everyone to see, but you were by no means a nuisance to the site. But that status you made that tried to make you look all high and mighty and the oh noez Cricket's leaving, she was a legend excuse, now it's the final out with you. I am fed up with your crap, especially deleting my comment on your status, because that made me more mad than making the status itself. So there's nothing to hide about how you truly are to other people. I honestly do not care how people look at you or treat you after they read this thread, but I'm going to make this thread for people to see this, no matter how ridiculous this all sounds. I'm tired of it, Sora96, and your actions alone was the reason why Cricket left, and was fed up with this site. You broke a rule, you complained about Cricket, you got your way. How is she a legend to you if you don't need her as a friend? No respect bro, and that's why any remaining respect I had for you is gone. You probably don't care. That's fine, but don't think I'm not going to give you a piece of mind for it.
And that's all I have to say to you Sora96, because frankly, I already have this hunch that you're going to try and remove this thread from the Personal forum. You'll probably get you way most likely, but any remaining time this thread has is going to for members to see these bullshit being pulled off. If you really REALLY want any redemption, then I expect some form of apology from you, but just know that this is the final straw. Cricket's not coming back, she set her password to something she will not remember. She is never signing in again. Now you can see why I'm calling you out of all people.
But I'm not just done yet, I have other final message and that's to you DC. I'll keep this one short though, I don't have much to say.
A) I understand that recently members have been giving you a hard time because of this new rule, and because of this new rule, everything has filled with chaos and arguments. I understand that hatok's actions are quite outrageous, if anything, and it was to a point where even I had defended you because it was just pure nonsense, but breaking your own rule does not set an example for the members. If you do not want members to break your rule, do not be a bystander and let it be broken for "special occasions". This is why I particularly grown distrust for you in the past because you did it how many times? And when I confronted you about it, all there was is, "I did nothing to you". Maybe so, but that's being hypocritical and even though you did this action after hatok complained about it after the rule, you did not help your case at all. No hard feelings, I mean, you did bring upon yourself when you chose to open the thread.
B ) Are you ever going to grow out of this female mod appointing that you absolutely refused to just appoint male mods (I still don't understand why people like baylaust are still not a mod, I'm being completely serious when I say that someone like him is a perfect example of a mod)? Sectional Mods don't count, especially since those that are male mods don't even had much power than the females ones. I don't even why Sectional Mods was a good idea when they can only control a certain portion of a forum. Now that one of your mods is gone ONCE AGAIN, and the few barely get on to help you prevent further problems, Sectional Mods are not going to solve the clusterfiretruck of problems with your own mod team. Just saying.
C) I understand you don't like me for some reason STILL, even though you tried to come to me about letting our differences go, but telling the other mods or the people in the MSN chatroom that I scared away one of your own mods, aka Jeny, none for nothing, but slander against me is a douchebag move, and I really don't appreciate it. I don't go around telling everyone you're a bad admin. I could but what would that solve? It would just make me look like idiot and then just get banned. Not even worth the trouble. Again with Sora96, I don't hate you or think you're a terrible person, but you're making yourself look really bad.
D) One last thing, hitting on the mods? Seriously? Don't you have a girlfriend or something like that, unless the only relationship you're carrying around is your hand. Either way, hitting on the mods is pretty much a big no no, and yes, Cricket tells me about it. It's disgusting dude. Look for other Aussies in your area, not random American or whatever girls that you appointed to do work on your forum. Is every Australian person this much trouble?
This is more advice than me explaining my opinion, since right now your site is crumpling into massive amounts of chaos, and nothing is really being done about it. So chop chop, because I'm done being around for this dump, and after this point, good luck with some of the people here, you're really going to need it.
Now that all this is said and done, I have no regrets, and I take nothing back, even if this thread doesn't last long enough, because even though I stuck to giving out opinions and showing the truths to everyone here, some people won't appreciate it and it'll be gone before you know it. I won't pull out the First Amendment freedom of speech bullcrap, but I hope that I'm going to have the right to allow others see this. There is a chance that this may make people angry or frustrated at what I'm saying, hell you might even think I'm a ridiculous sack of shit, hey that's fine by me, but you're still going to read this and find out that you guys need to know some of the stuff going on and understand that these things shouldn't be happening because of it, regardless of any negative notion towards me.
I realize that over the course of these four years, I've changed, even to become a complete douchebag to many people. I would say I'm sorry to these cases, but some people deserved it, and that's something to keep in mind. I may act hostile towards a lot of you because either you drive me bonkers or provide unnecessary drama to the site, but never think I'm a bad person. I have good intentions, and I will be completely honest with everyone here with anything I say. Hell, if I have to bluntly say you're annoying to you specifically, I will say it and I will say it straight foward.
When I say some things, a lot of you guys take it as a joke. When I say I despise a lot of people on this site, I really mean it. So many people in a span of 4 years has made this site unbearable for me, and it's driven me away. It can't be helped with the mass amount of new members joining the site, but some of you people have not seen the worst of this forum. You think you've seen worse now with this Random Rule nonsense, but guys, it's been worse, and you can only imagine how upsetting it's been for me.
That isn't to say I do not like everyone on this site. There are some people here that I do not mind, or at least finally put up with. I'll give you guys some examples. I'm going to bring up my two favorite stalkers, Apprentice and Shana. When you two first signed up on this site, I want to rip my eyes out of my head, you guys drove me insane. And despite me being a douchebag constantly to them, both Apprentice and Shana like me, because they know I'm a good person. I mean, I may of not enjoyed Apprentice's company, but when people made fun of her aspergers or bullied her, you can bet my ass I was going to defend her. No matter what, even if you guys may annoy me, I will still stick up anyone who has to go through this trouble. Let me you give a wise quote of Volitare himself:
I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.
It's like that, just not in an argument sense- oh you guys know what I mean.
Consider it that there a few people I like on here. YOU READ IT HERE FOLKS, THERE ARE PEOPLE I DONT MIND, HOLY SHIT CALL THE POLICE.
With that in mind, I'm going to actually put out my Skype to those who actually want to contact me and continue talking to me. I don't expect everyone to add me, nor do I expect those who don't like me to add me, but I'm going to put it out there in case people actually want to keep in touch with me. So my Skype name is dantesmandess15. Add me if you want, but only do it if you still want contact with me. I won't bite, unless you are a person that annoys me, then I might take a nibble. I've got sharp teeth mind you know.
Also, in case anyone did not get the memo, I do have a YouTube account where I do Yugioh videos, and if you like Yugioh, go check it out, or just check me out to hear my voice since I do commentaries. That YouTube name is also DantesMadness15.
I will check back on this thread later on, and hope that it's still up, regardless if it's closed or not. After that, done with KH13. If I ever come here, it'll only be for the news, and news right now is slower than shit with HD Remix 1.5 or whatever.
It's been fun for the first two years, four years is way too much. Goodbye cunts and cuntettes...or just cunts, that'll probably represent everyone.
Later...uh need some video to make this goodbye seem like an actual goodbye...SK3 took the ending of Cowboy Bebop....GOT IT, DRAGONBALL Z, PERFECT SCENE:
P.S. I have no one for Valentines Day Maybe something will miraculously happen and dem kisses being given/received. I'll update on that later. Still going to wear my Bullet For My Valentine shirt anyway
