Also, don't worry guys, the applicants were checked and if a serious offense was committed it was a really long time ago and it was ONLY ONCE. And since then, they played it more cool.
So yes, let's forgive them for their sins "Hallelujah"! The only thing they should prove to the community is their motivation and desire to help others, that's all what matters here!
I will make sure personally that nobody in the new team spread negativity and that they help as much as they can on their favorite part of the "job", when they are available on their free time.
Gonna add my 5 cents to the highlighted parts, okay?
The first one - No, it wasn't long time ago as you claim, it's a very consistent behavior throughout years of playing from all the way in the past till recent days/weeks before GS application. I am not sure what you consider long time ago, it's a very vague statement, but I can reassure you that in general scope, you are incorrect about your judgement, and majority of people familiar with the person will give you this exact same opinion.
The second one - No, false. That is not the only thing that matters. You need someone who is respected by the community. No one is gonna listen or obey someone just because of 2 letters in front of their name and muting powers. If you put there someone who is as massively disliked by majority, you are just asking for further conflicts and troubles, thus shooting yourself in the foot. Just cause for a few days someone wants to help doesn't mean you instantly should put everything else to the side and let them do so.
Also, riddle me this, okay? IF their motivation and desire to help is so big, what stopped them from doing so till now? Or why they attitude has suddenly seemingly changed from the moment applications are up. I do not buy it, sorry.
The third one - I think that's gonna be hard for you to do, judging from the fact you can only recognize negativity when it suits you, and you're hardly available at all to know these people or listen to them.
Look, I'm all up for this. But realize you're in quite a gamble now. If you ignore the players feedback and make a bad call here, you will just further undermine the already fragile connection between players and the company, and I can promise you the conflicts GSs will have to deal with won't be fun as well. If you need these people just to be your translators, it's 2019, there is technology that can replace them.
Think for yourself, how would you feel if you were a player, and I made hmm, I don't know, Aryzo a GS. But hey, I reviewed his past, and I am sure he has changed, so have fun, your opinion does not matter.
