    Are we forgetting that it was XYZ who started the suggestion.

    Maybe because they've been loyal to Concordia for years.

    It's a meme for fun. Though, if you're looking to start a petty blaming game, go no further than Nic - the one who incorrectly assigned an otherwise clean rank and the one who "accepted" the suggestion. As for my suggestion, it actually didn't directly suggest to strip power from Retired Staff as you're insinuating it did (Though I do agree with the changes that were made, employees don't keep their access permissions upon retiring from a company just because they visit daily.)

    Oh I’m fully aware it’s a meme for fun, and I liked the meme. The blame game does no one any favors, which is why it’s more humerous to blame bash, as it at least entertains everyone. Anyway what’s done is done. If people really want everything to be changed back then maybe one day it will, who knows.

    Doesn't look that simple if this is what you're talking about.
    Besides analogies, I'd expect our previous version of Retired Staff to weaken the staff team by encouraging resignation. Retired Staff would previously get all the bonuses of being a staff member and none of the responsibilities - an unbalanced trade.

    We've never had that issue with the previous system.

    How can you conclude that?

    We discuss the resignation reason with each staff member, especially ones with high ranks. We like to be thorough in ascertaining why they do not desire to be staff anymore. For example, Burgundy and I had a lengthy discussion with Bogler when he resigned from Sector originally. They can vouch for it.

    Continuing, I don't think anyone has ever resigned just for the power that the retired staff rank holds, because it really isn't even that great compared to what they're leaving behind. It's a downgrade. They lose out on many perms they use to be able to access often, and, even if they did just want the perks of the rank without any obligations, to say that they don't have any responsibilities is a bit of a stretch. Baratheon abused his retired staff perms and lost them rather quickly, so they're still held to a standard.
