    Checking in

    Holy shit there's a name I haven't heard in a while lol Congratulations on the marriage Whitby! Glad to hear things are looking good. Whereabouts are you? MENA is a pretty big region. Any recommendations for tourist/vacation destinations? I retired from the unit years ago and just rejoined a couple weeks ago after seeing one of Harts' videos (the one with the oil platform - so good). Transferred from aviation to JTAC and really having a blast (sometimes literally) so far. As far as IRL goes I finished my bachelors degree and got a corporate job in a completely unrelated field (apparently history/philosophy isn't applicable to most jobs - who knew! ). Been working my way up the corporate ladder to some effect though. After the last 3 years focussing on work - I'm now trying to focus back on the more important parts of life like friends and family - also part of the reason I'm back. Also looking at travelling more, now that my paycheck allows for it - hence my question above.

    Nice Unit Website

    No one on it, because we're still in the middle of the week and it's a german (or german speaking at least) unit. Time zones my friend :). Also it's a 15 man unit apparently, so you don't need a ton of channels. Also their forums are pretty active from the looks of it: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/secondforecon/ Overall I do like their website though, only irk i have is some of the text and headline formatting. I don't understand why they would host a seperate website for their forums though.
  14. Mr. Hinter will be remembered. Good article by Mr. Subros. Also, why isn't my adblock working on that site?

    On the topic of Drama

    I know for a fact concerns about this were sent up the CoC before this thread was created - not only by me but others too. Unfortunately not everyone decided to wait for a response. I rarely send something up the CoC, because mostly I'm happy (or to inactive) with how things are going. But when I don't, Brueske hears from me. Although it doesn't bode well, that apparently most people do not use the CoC. In previous iterations of the unit sending stuff up the CoC was pointless most of the time. Your opinion was either dismissed or you were forgotten, due to all the other stuff leadership had to deal with. Maybe the current situation is a remnant of those times?

    On the topic of Drama

    I agree on most of what you've said Captain Hart. Although I find the comparison with professional sports a bit lacking. I'm not getting paid millions to play Arma. This remains a hobby, where I'm trying to primarily have fun and not necessarily be the best. Also a hobby most of us have been doing for over 4 years, so a certain level of competence (and civility) should be expected. Sadly sometimes people get overwhelmed by their emotions and do stupid things. Like leaving the unit, before awaiting the results of what they've sent up the CoC and asking for their accounts to be deleted for a community they've been a part of for years. The grading thing is in my opinion not going to work. I understand the rationale behind it, but it will backfire. It's something that is even acknowledged in the announcement itself. It's going to lead to elitism, which leads to a further deepening of the "clique" mentality (Axios!) and ultimately the demise of this unit. It's a pattern I and others have seen repeated over the years, which is why I believe some people reacted so emotionally... because in the end they do care a lot about this community (or maybe I'm just projecting). Those are the fears some people have in a nutshell, there's obviously more to it, but that has been sent up the chain in pms. Unfortunately the trust in the institution that is CS has been shaken by all the incidents, that previous CS members have caused and it's easy to forget that new people are in charge. Although some of the decisions, that have come along, like implementing a classroom section and grading, don't necessarily help in that regard either. If I've wanted realism, I'd have joined the army (well I kinda did, but there's mandatory service in switzerland anyway). As you've stated yourself we use this as an escape for our shitty lives. Military life sucks even more than civilian. So milsim sure, but at the proper dosage. We can't lose track of fun. Also I want to make clear I'm not trying to halt progress or belittle the efforts, that have been made. Even though it doesn't show, due to real life constraints: I deeply care about this community and it's well-being. I know for a fact, that this hobby and this community has saved my life on at least two occasions. You've hit on depression in your post, so I thought I'd mention it. That is also all I'm willing to share publicly. Everyone has their demons. Even those you disagree with. Now I "know" you not as much as I'd like (again real life constraints), but enough to know, that you want what's best for the unit aswell. You've always been an excellent leader, good friend and even a role model. Not sure where to end this post, as I didn't expect to share so much. I guess thanks to all the people, who make this community possible? I see and appriciate you working. Even, if you think we don't. Time to go to bed now. Also I wish to echo what Cole and Van Dyke have shared.
