Please advise!! Also &one fell off the wagon..Posted by a_pack_of_lies on 2010.03.18 at 12:09
I really need some advice. For a few months now my co-mod has been pretty MIA due to RL problems, which isn't really a problem, except that she unofficially handled one of our members that I don't get a really get along with. Now that she's been less involved the player has been coming to me more, and I'm finding it hard to moderate objectively where they are concerned. I find the player rude and pushy, and on one occassion they tried to tell me my character would act one way when when I clearly (and repeatedly) told them my character would not. Now this person's characters seem to be deliberately trying to circumvent SLs my characters have, and make it so that some of my lines dry up. Which leads me to my problem/question: as a mod, if I'm honest with my group, is it okay to ask a player to leave for personal reasons? They have friends in the group, and I understand this will mean taking away main SLs for some characters, but this player is honestly killing my will to play in my own game, and I'm not sure what to do about it anymore. If I can ask them to leave, is 2 weeks to tie up SLs appropriate, or should I give them less/more time? I don't think they'd do any flaming, of the group, but I don't know. I don't really feel right just removing them outright. Please help, any and all advice is appreciated.
