I get what you're saying, Rhapsody. Like...a negotiator. A non-biased middle party without distinct personal involvement in the argument etc who can be depended upon to say "no yeah, you're a douche apologize" or "yes she's right" or "that's wrong" or...etc etc. Basically someone who won't overreact and will be honest without having to worry about repercussions.
Unfortunately, most people on here are friends and as such are not prime material for this sort of thing. Honestly, what we should do is put the topic up for discussion amongst all the staff. That's what we're for, particularly the gaffers.
Not to sound egotistical or anything, but I'm fairly confident in my ability to be fair. Not that I believe myself to be unbiased, but I would be more than happy to volunteer my services as someone without fear of being rebuked on your behalf. If you should have a problem, and this goes to anyone out there, be it with staff, regular joe or freaking god, feel free to pm me and I'll be more than happy to tell everyone off. I may be staff, but I'm just the person they poke with a stick and command to draw when it so suits them to do so. I consider all of you to be my friends on some level, but I'm well-known for being brutally honest.
...Aaand I'm rambling.
Basically, I agree with Rhapsody but there's not a lot of people capable of being that person. As evidenced actually by some of our recent calamity, quite a few people got very up-and-up and basically no one kept an exceptionally clear head as far as I could tell. Thanks to the turmoil of my everyday life, I am more capable than most when it comes to stepping back and taking a look at the big picture. That's not to say I'm not a volatile, spontaneous, idiotic person; I have overreacted many times. But I've told most of the staff at least once something they didn't want to hear. I've told Marly what a bitch she in many times in fact. I may love most of my fellow staffers dearly, but I would be happy to step between an argument and help sort things out. I regret that I haven't been given the opportunity to do so several times so it seems only right that I should offer to do so now.
AND I'M RAMBLING AGAIN. Dammit. Okay, so sorry if this sounded just totally moronic. I'm just..an idiot I guess but I do want to help! I mean I'm not the most reliable person, but...uh...shit. I'm gonna shut up now.
