    History

    On or about March 24, 2008 a charge appeared on my American Express bill in the wake of Apollo having been kicked from [352nd] and with that Team Interrobang was born. During the summer of 2008 I was largely absent as I was working something ridiculous, like 80 hours weeks at Ockanickon Scout Reservation, as assistant camp director.
    I would like to have stepped down as SA on or about our 3rd anniversary. (FUTURE PERFECT, BITCHES)

    Opinion on Things

    • Admin status and community will always be entangled. There is a camaraderie that comes from a shared responsibility.
    • The words "troll" and "drama" are meaningless, functioning as stand-ins when a person can't articulate their dislike of something.
    • Novel play is good.
    • There is great value to talk. I'm fine with a bit of failure as long as the mechanism that brought it was just.
    • Order of importance when dealing with novel infraction. Check for problem > player talk > community talk > technical fix > rules change.
    • Increasing choice will often make a server worse. If the votemap options includes 2 options, many more players are more likely to get the map "they want" compared to if there are 6.
    • I'm willing to take some shit from people who ship. Also, my memory is short.
    • Your friends can be wrong and your enemies can be right. Truth can hide anywhere.

    Catchphrases and Memes

    1. "Such is the way of things" - Picked this up sometime around 2005 during a concerted effort to be less angry.
    2. "but this isn't team Arcanus" - Just repeated a lot. I have strong opinions on how things should be done, but I'd prefer a well considered community decision over one made by personal fiat.
    3. "Toot toot; you're a bitch" - Picked up from a comic strip. Usually proceeding "Hey, , do you want to hear a song I wrote for you?"
    4. Charlemagne, the Stabby Ghost - Comes out once every few months. Usually when someone says "there's no way you can kill me."
    5. " is a big boy|girl." I have belief in personal autonomy and if someone chooses to depart our company or go in another direction, it's his or her choice. At most we can state our preference for someone to do something else, but once words like "should" come out, one's overstepped.
    6. Verbing - Short-hand for people who do useful things. For instance, someone who helps update servers and runs events would be someone who verbs. People who don't verb shouldn't demand it of others.
    7. "Hm. So..." - A phrase picked up from Karl Van Hoet and often used to preface overly technical statements.
    8. Arcanus's Laws
      1. Law #1 - I disagree.
      2. Law #2 - Don't give people homework.
      3. Law #3 - Any team activity that requires people to do hard work independently with a long payoff time will fail.
      4. Law #4 - You can request that I do anything, and there's a good chance I will. You can tell me to do nothing.
      5. Law #5 - It doesn't exist until there's a thread for it.
