For as long as we have been developing and improving the Eliters Site we have seen rejections of, and objections to, every change we have made. We consider this to be a normal thing for many reasons:|
- Resisting change is a natural human behavior.
- Change requires effort by individuals: they must learn and adjust.
- Change sometimes results in changing a situation that was previously more beneficial to some people.
- Some people (abt_masters comes to mind, LOL) like to challenge everything in a positive way, to see if it can be made better.
- Some people just like to object negatively to anything.
In any case, sometimes rejections or objections prove to have validity, so they serve the purpose of adjusting and fine-tuning the new system.
Please help us in developing and introducing changes to Eliters:
- Be patient, and wait for the announcement of the change, do not “jump the gun” or spread rumors and speculation.
- If asked about forthcoming changes by others, simply reply: “an official, detailed explanation of the new system will be released soon”.
- Read the detailed explanation of the new system in the News and Help Section, and understand it, before objecting or rejecting it.
- In the event you do have an objection, please submit it positively and with details either in the Club or by email.
- Give all changes a chance. We have in the past removed changes to both rules and system when they proved ineffective or overwhelmingly unpopular, but we need time to evaluate before we take this step.
