Today has been a bumpy road when it comes to promotions and demotions, we had a quite some demotions and promotions taking place today and many are left confused; I will clarify what happened in short: One of our best members Sharc has recently been misbehaving outside the CLWO community a lot, with evidence provided from sources who want to stay anonymous. Many people were wondering if we actually had proof of Sharc's actions, although this is a legitimate concern, you should trust the senators' words as we are trying to keep the community alive and we would only ruin it if we would demote staff members for made up evidence. There is no motive for us to lie about demotions, if we want someone gone we will tell it them directly and not make up evidence to get that person demoted. The reason behind why we don't give specific examples of what Sharc did is because doing this would make the people that reported him easier to catch, which is something we do not want. Another small but important note is that breaking the general rules outside of CLWO is allowed for non staff members, but staff members have to behave when others are close and mind it (which they clearly do when you get reported). Sharc is still welcome in CLWO like all other players are who aren't banned, a demotion should never be seen as a real punishment, as when you do something seriously wrong you get a ban; but if you do something that doesn't fit in our staff team you get demoted with or without a warning.
A little later Boss got demoted too and coincidentally right after his post in the 'other' section which criticises Sharc's demotion, this led people to believe that we cannot take criticism and some even called it censorship. First and foremost private companies/organisations cannot illegally censor anything by definition. We might and most likely will punish for/remove posts which add nothing to the already on-going topic, but we will never punish community members for constructively criticising us. Secondly Boss did in fact not get demoted because of the previously mentioned post, he got demoted because he has been doing something similar to Sharc with confidentially provided evidence.
The cause of Aleksander's demotion was a little chat between him and iNilo and has nothing to do with his reply in favour of Sharc on the post criticising Sharc's ban.
Lastly to fill up the gaps in our staff team we had to promote a few other staff members that were already thinking of promoting before all this drama took place.
