bear_music message #6766 dated 3/15/2002 in the TD Club:
There has lately been a rash of “public resignations” in the EliteLeague forums. There is no possible way that these public outbursts can further the interests of the league. Indeed, they create a negative atmosphere: their sole reason for existing is that the TD in question wishes to lash back at the league, or individuals within it. This is not acceptable.
It is presumed by administration that all TDs will conduct themselves in a mature manner. Presumably we all love the League, or we would not volunteer. If circumstances force any among us to question that commitment, and to stop being a TD for any reason whatever, that is still not adequate cause to tear down what we have loved.
From this point forward, there will be a presumption that any poster of such a negative and public resignation in the league forums has declared his/her opposition to the league, and they will be removed from membership as well as TD status.
This is not a game. This league does not exist to indulge our egos. It is not possible to make everyone happy all the time. If you are for any reason unhappy, there are channels to go through, and you will be heard. If you feel you must resign, it should be done via email to your HA. If if your problem is with your HA, or you did not get a reply from your HA, you may copy Steve (VP Member Relations) if the problem is related to communication or relations among the league, or el_buddha (VP League Development) if the problem is related to League activity or performance, or to bear_music (Advisor to President) if the problem is related to rules, or to balouza (President) if the problem is not handled by any one of the above.
You will be listened to. But this public venting by TDs must stop. No purpose is served by it except to promote an exaggerated sense of polarity where, in fact, the vast majority of our players and TDs are content, and only the very vocal minority speaks out to be heard.

This is not the place to withdraw, and no need for a Public announcement.
To withdraw from a specific League, you may use the link Withdraw From League available on all Leagues menus.
To withdraw from all Leagues, you may use the link Withdraw available on EliteLeague main menu.
