I'm not gonna + or - , instead, I'm going to suggest a solution to lower the fears of the Higashi abusing his power again, as well as satisfying the people who like and want Higashi in power and that's two suggestions
I am suggesting an excel sheet, as well as a no chances rule
1, the excel sheet; in the past when I was a staff member, I was afraid of improperly doing my job, so I made an entire spreadsheet for my bans, kicks and even reports that I deemed that I might end up biting me in the ass on how I handled it.
and I want Higashi to do the same if he gets this app approved, the reasoning for this is because the higher staff (admin and up) can check his claims for his bans and kicks and cross them with the actual game files and logs when that happened. (and yes, you should snapshot the !reports and !responses, as well as the chat logs when putting them into the spreadsheet)
and I know you guys can just check the logs to what he does, but I suggest this idea because he can say why in his own words why he did these bans.. also cuz if he does end up kicking or banning someone for no reason he has to explain why ;3 as well as why he said "fuck you" as the reason xD
and 2, the no chances rule; by this, I mean if he ever gets toxic, abuses his moderator powers or generally ignores his responsibilities (including ignoring the spreadsheet), he should be put up to vote by the entire staff team, (everyone gets 1 token, and no 3 token managers 1 token moderator or any of that shit, everyone should have 1 vote) and they should vote if he abused his power or not as well as the reasoning why they believe he did or not so no biases happening with the staff team
now I know this might be a bit much, but at the same time Higashi has been demoted already for abusive behaviors of his position as a high staff member, been called out by the community for his toxic towards other players as well as other things people may bring up which I have forgotten xD
And If i was confusing on how i wrote this, well.. ask what got you confused and i shall explain
