Recently the entire moderator team of the Broadcast 4 Reps group commonly decided to split off from the existing administration to give the Broadcast 4 Reps project a new chance. This happened for a number of reasons, and we wanted to make a post explaining our reasons for leaving.
One of the main reasons that this split happened is that every leader of the group so far has gone inactive for months at a time. The administration of the group is one that requires activity and dedication. However, for whatever reason the owner went inactive and occasionally unreachable for the team. This happened with Coffee Rocks, then Emma and then to a lesser extent Marrowbone.
We do understand in Marrowbone’s case she did have grave real life issues to deal with. We did request on multiple occasions that she takes a step back during these times to focus on these things instead of Broadcast 4 Reps. A responsible self awareness which we expect from everyone who is part of the Broadcast 4 Reps leadership. However, she refused to do this.
Issues in Discord
There are two issues to mention, which led to the recent events. Firstly was the after the most recent Test Cyno Vigil. An argument broke out between Marrowbone and the rest of the team over whether we should be going to publicly announced Cyno Vigils hosted by Null-Sec entities, this ended with one admin temporarily leaving and it becoming apparent that Marrowbone never really understood what we were doing up until this point.
The second issue was more recent, a person came to us being stranded in a foreign country, and one of the members of the Discord server helped him. This same member also made a rather rude comment, this then led to a small argument over what to do, with Marrowbone wanting to ban both people, and the rest were fine at letting it go after a warning. This led to an admin and two moderators resigning.
Spam for Heals Charity
One of the main reasons for the inactivity of the Administrators was the Spam For Heals Charity, the purpose for this was to give support to the wider gaming community. The board was formed of Coffee Rocks, Emma, and later Marrowbone, along with some non-eve members. This led to increased workloads which made the Admins go inactive. It also caused our inactivity towards the EVE community as the administration was focused more on our external image and trying to drive up support
However, recently there was also concerns from the wider EVE community that funds from this charity had been embezzled. To address this concern in a public forum in regards to our group, I can assure everyone none of the former moderation team ever had access to that money, the only people who had access to the finances were the board members. However, we cannot say what happened to that money.
To look to the future, we are still committed to helping the everybody who needs it. Broadcast 4 Reps is a place for everyone. We are here to lend an open ear for everyone and accept you, whoever you are. The fight against self harm, depression and suicide is the reason why we are here - for you.
The moderators have elected Tovanis, to lead the team, someone who has been active since before the start of Spam 4 Heals. The Broadcast 4 Reps in game chat will still be staffed by our moderators.
We are also looking for a new logo and a station advertisement, if you feel that you can create one for us, then send us a message.
Our Main Goal now is to rebuild our relations with the EVE community and regrow the trust that we once had. If you want to get involved please contact us. You can find our new discord here:
