    Blaze got a reaction from NoxNoctus in This is It!   
    After a long battle of Deciding to stay or not. Even said that I was going to leave and even told me not to Leave. And also stated that I was going to stay, didn't work out.
    I Made my decision to Turn in my Tag's My ADK Teamspeak(Discord) Tag
     
    But the only thing I will say when first join there were a ton of people that came here, as time went on started to go down and less and less etc. Don't know what happen with high leadership some how talks broke down and never got resolved. But Good luck on rebuilding. Will I come back NO,  I'll just see from the sidelines and say hi of the few i know and the one's i met.

    Blaze reacted to Pepsi in Phoenix of ADK   
     
    Let me shine a little light into this topic real quick over the ADK logo.
    This is a direct screenshot from the PM I began with AOB when Syl and I first came up with the concept of the Phoenix and so forth.

    At the time I had a account named "Buttons" and lurked under that. It eventually got merged into my main account. I had seen from a far all the shit that happened during the CS:GO drama and QQ and such. I was going to come back sooner but once I seen that I was demoted to a regular member I decided to just stay away even more. During this whole time like I said elsewhere the only person to reach out to me during my AFK period from ADK was Nova. Even tho other staff had my cell or knew people who had my cell it was only Nova who would text me about 3-4 times a week to say sup, ask how I was doing and just being a friend more then anything. Of course he clued me in on what was going on behind the scenes in some areas but nothing major. 
    When I finally could hear how frustrated Nova was over some stuff I put my pride aside and came back for him mainly and those I still had here as friends to help pull them out the shitter that was QQ's wake. I knew I had to come up with a new logo, a new vibe for ADK but it had to be something I believed in, something that would drive me to work again after being demoted without anyone saying a word to me via text, email, PM or anything. You would have figured after 3 years of working along side people on a daily basis something like that would have happened. 
    It did not.
    So again I thought about it and talked ideas and concepts with Syl. We talked about ADK, how I felt about ADK and all that had happened from me joining to me being demoted. Going back and forth about the idea of ADK being revived and reborn got me thinking about the Final Fantasy series of games. My fav of that series had a summon in it named "Phoenix" and what it did in the game was...

    So I took how I felt about ADK and came up with a concept and Syyl began the actual mock ups in Illustrator. This quote...
    was not about ADK. It was about me. It was about how I felt at the time. I was demoted, forgotten (expect Nova) and replaced without a mention at all for all the years of non-stop work I had put into this place. It's not about the ADK community, it is about the ADK website, its look, its presentation and how it functions. All the things I was controlling and staying on top of for the years before this stuff happened. I have called the ADK site a "home" so many times through the years its just silly. I even mentioned a slew of times that AOB was dad and Nova was mom. I have always said that your home has to look great, stand out, be inviting and new or people will not want to walk in. This is the website. It is the first thing people see and leaves the first impression on people when they come to ADK. I can not could how much praise the site has gotten as a recruitment tool cause of how advanced it is over other communitys in form and function and I prided myself in that knowing I was doing my all to make sure all the ADK member had a home they could be proud of. I would even go to other rival communitys to make sure we were out doing them. I did this daily. Constantly tweeking and reworking things.
    Before we had burns and his group who left right around when I joined and they tried to take from the ADK home. Then we had Chaos Gaming who tried to do the same. Then we had DDoS attacks trying to break the home, we had people trying to steal the home..
    https://webflake.sx/topic/11659-skin-ripped-or-were-to-find-it/

    and even to the point I was getting PM's asking me to leave ADK to come to other communitys where I would be paid. I turned them all down. There was one time when someone wanted a copy of ADK's home to which me and AOB worked out a deal with them to make them a custom site, custom code with ADK elements but would not look like ADK. I worked on this site for 4 days non-stop and still ended up doing like a week of tech support for them after. ADK got paid $700+ for the job. What did I ask from it? $60 to buy a game. Thats it. Nothing more, nothing less. The money went into ADK and I never made a post over it nor did I brag about it. I told a few about it that were close to me so they knew why I couldnt game but yeah... for my home.
    So back to the quote and the logo...
    This is not about QQ. Its not about the people. It's about the damn website. The home. The place I spent almost 4 years into making it what it is from a stock theme named Warrior to now its using almost 90% custom code and images. Want to know what the ADK site is built off of? 
    Check this: http://ipsfocus.net/4x/
    That is what ADK is now built off of. It does not even look the same except the menu hover and thats about it. So with all the shit people have tried to do in the past to the ADK site, stealing from the site and QQ messing with shit trying to do her thing with graphics fucking up the complete flow of things to fit her agenda of making ADK in her vision I had to come back from the ashes after being burned and make this place reborn to correct it once again. Make the house right. Do what I could for Nova and friends to give them what they needed to repair the wound that was QQ and the people before her.
    The ADK logo is about the website and its ordeals through the years.
    The ADK logo is about me and the ordeals I went through before I decided to come back.
    So while you are rallying behind the Phoenix make sure you know what you are really rallying around. Its not the community, its the site, its history and the shit I went through during my AFK period until I sent AOB the PM with the logo concept.
    ADK did have a logo to call its own. The letter A one in the past was from Radar. The shield was a play on Star Citizen I made. QQ made the one that looked like Star Trek / Avenegers and now you have the the Phoenix that Syl and I made. So who is going to make the new one? Who is going to rebrand ADK into the new phase cause in all honesty, when you are saying "I believe in the Phoenix you are saying "I believe Pepsi will come back from the ashes to make us look good again".
    On a more personal note:
    In my goodbye thread: 
    Not one single Director, Comm Manager or even Founder has said anything to me. Not "Hey thanks for all the hard work through the years!" to even a "Fuck you and leave already!".
    Nothing.
    There is one higher up who did send me a PM over it and for that I thank them. This is now your community. Your "Phoenix" you hold so high. You work your ass off for years, go AFK to take a break and during that time you are replaced with no mention of it to you or to even see if you are alive except Nova. You then swallow your pride to come back for the greater good to help a close friend in Nova, to help other friends you have here still and even convince ex members to rejoin to help you.
    When your motivation for coming back leaves you feel defeated.
    When you get blasted for being someone's friend you feel as if you are being forced out. 
    When people dont answer your PM's and just ignore you, you don't feel at home anymore
    When high staff don't reply to your good-bye it shows how much family was here to begin with.
    So please, do what the new trend is to do. Make sure posts trying to rally people around, preach on all the things that need to be done to make ADK great again. Talk about all the great ideas and how you can evolve from all this cause "fuck-em" and fuck all those that helped build what you are enjoying now and having so much pride in. And with all the talk, all the posts and all the hype not a single thing will be done cause 90% of the people who were motivated, working constantly, pushing things forward and being innovative have left or will be when BF1 comes out. 
    I have said my piece on this topic. You have so much faith in the community, its members and your rally cry then dont hide this or lock it.
    Remember, ADK is about transparency now.

    Pepsi,
     
    Over the years you have done a great service to the ADK Community by providing well over tens of thousands of dollars in Graphics Design free of charge for the betterment of the community. While graphics alone does not make or break a Community it can certainly help with Recruitment as well as present a Professional Aura to which various entities such as Affiliates / Sponsors and other larger groups may be drawn to.
     
    On a personal level, you and I have had more arguments / fights / battles than any other person I have encountered at ADK. Looking back on it, I can hardly remember any of them as often times they were more for the protection of someone who had no will to fight themselves, which was fine. Over the years, we came to an understanding, and as I stepped away from my duties more and more as time progressed, our friendship did develop moreso. We have had a lot of great, late night discussions the past few years that really brought reality into play several times for me that I appreciated.
     
    Unlike countless other leaders that I worked with over the years at ADK, you had your own way of doing things in that if the situation called for a tactical strike by a small team. You would just walk up to the front door and blow it open with explosives and yell, "Get out here lets go already!". This to me was both positive and negative to be truthful.
    One of the most unique things I personally believe you brought to the table for ADK was the fact that you always saw situations through the eyes of an ADK Member. This vision often created rifts between you and other Leaders who often didn't focus on their own membership in various game departments ranging from Map Settings to Rule Implementation. A leader who often focuses on the Member's needs is respected by countless Members but hated by other Leadership.
     
    Thus in a manner of speaking, you appealed to my original self. I joined ADK as a member and all I ever wanted to be was an ADK Member. I saw a chance to help out and even told AOBLXIX "If you have me do this job, I will no longer be able to be one of the guys and some of them will hate me" and after that its all she wrote.......main point being, I saw in you what I saw as a younger ADK Member looking into ADK. You addressed concerns that Members wanted addressed that other Leaders Ignored or mowed over and constantly focused on the membership part of ADK and not the leadership part.
     
    On behalf of ALL ADK LEADERSHIP that worked with you from when I started to before I stepped down, we really do appreciate what you have done for ADK whether we say it or not. We love your graphics, we hated how you conduct yourself at times but your goal was always, and will always be for the Members. For that, you do have my respect because the community is NOTHING without its members.
     
    Peace.

    I think it's time I come clean on how I felt/feel about you in general. At first, I'm seeing you shit down everyone's throats on the forums & TS and I immediately developed a feeling of dislike of you (years ago). At the end of the day, you're an egomaniac and an asshole. You don't take shit from anyone, and I think that plays into many of the younger more impressionable guys gravitating towards you.
    It took me a long time to realize that under that exterior you really mean well and you just detest bullshit. I came to respect that after playing a lot of BF4 with you. I'm happy I spent that time in those servers getting to know you better. You take care of your own, and nothing could impress me more.
    I'm not going to miss you because we haven't lost touch.
    I'll leave you with this gem:
