R.E.S.P.E.C.T – Find out what it means to me

Anyone else notice that there are some Kanevians without blue names that have been a lot more friendlier then usual?  Or more willing to give advice to the newb’s all of the sudden?  Or my personal favorite – they’ve been reciting your Kaneva rights as if their next warning will be a yellow lettered kick.

If you were looking for an explanation for this – it’s because new advisor positions are coming up for grabs…. that’s right these folks are auditioning for the lead in Kaneva the Musical.

More can be read about this on the Kaneva forums –

Now to make myself clear – I have no problem with ANYONE helping out a newb… I mean, someone’s gotta do it.  I just have a problem with the show that some are putting on and thinking that the employees of Kaneva can’t see through it.  The unusual amount of ass kissing and dogooding (i.e. the rule reciting for no infractions whatsoever) is getting old.

I have an enormous amount of respect for our current advisors – their good people…. For those who are auditioning – you don’t have my respect yet so don’t act like you’ve earned it.

MY ADVICE:

If your name is on the list of people who would like to be an advisor – treat it like you are applying for or trying to fit into a new job…. No one likes the new guy who tries to throw around his weight when he has no clout.  Everyone likes the new guy who is more then willing to help out and teach.

With that said – lean more towards the helping out and answering questions aspect of the advisor position then the rule enforcement aspect.

Take my advice however you would like, I don’t work for Kaneva so I don’t know what their decision making process is like and I don’t know how far back into someones Kaneva past they will be looking (or remembering) when deciding who the best fit will be.

And last of all – good luck to all of those applying for the advisor position….. you may have my respect in time, but you will have to earn it like the advisors that we have now had to.

to quote a little known film called “Spiderman” – “With great power comes great responsibilty”
