Jesus, what happened to this place?
I remember spending quite some time in SMBX and even though I kept my distance from the community for the most part (a large part of it rubbed me the wrong way).
I know people move on, but I didn't expect to practically not recognise anyone anymore.
I agree on the transparacy thing, if there's anything I've learned is that communication is key. If stuff is discussed in private, it should always be proposed in advance for feedback, it's easy to forget or assume other people's perspectives.
And I also disagree with the age thing, but for different reasons.
People mature through experience, not through age. The best way to get experience is to do stuff. It's a good idea to promote younger people if they show the potential, they just have to be supervised more.
Else... how will they ever learn to correctly act like a person with authority?
You found my hidden signature... OH NO!
