I register as a player.
The following is my Cantus Cygneus, to be published by the Registrar in
a timely fashion:
Alright, so let's get one thing straight here. I haven't actually been
playing this game in MONTHS. Yeah, sure, the whole zombie system has
been keeping me alive for a little while, but did you notice my resale
value is 0 now? I'm so dramatically rotted away that you can't even use
me for anything! And despite that, I'm still on the Directory,
registered as a player.
Wait, what's that? The rules say the Registrar SHALL try to deregister
me every month I haven't been active? Huh, can you believe that this
hasn't been happening in direct violation of the rules, even when my
resale was already 0? Can you believe the former Registrar outright
resigned instead in order to shirk eir duty? Can you believe, even
though literally ANYONE here could deregister me with mere notice at
this point, no one actually has? Here I was hoping to come back with the
obligatory "am I a player" CFJ, only to find out that I'm still a
player! It's ridiculous, and it's not even funny.
Honestly, this makes me mad. Doubly mad because if I were to deregister
by announcement, I'd have to wait around a full month before I could
come back. So let's do it this way - it gets the point across and lets
me skip the timer (at least as long as the current Registrar actually
bothers to do their job and not flagrantly violate the rules for once)
Are we clear? Actually, no we're not. In fact, it turns out that I was
deregistered two weeks ago, but the Registrar hasn't published a report
since then. It turns out the current Registrar is also shirking eir
duty, as the report due in the previous week has not materialised. This
(even more flagrant) rules violation created the confusion that led to
this being necessary in the first place, and I am not instilled with
hope for the future of the Registrar's office.
You're all extra lucky I didn't throw in a couple of paragraphs from the
Automatic Complaint Letter Generator, this situation feels so absurd
that you all probably deserve it. >:(
