You know what, Ryan is an opinionated Character, but this is not a bad thing. He has now far more of a dedication to the server than he did before in his first tenure, but also not the burdens that the first week of NL brought. He's a good guy and will be fit for the role. I know I do not play anymore, but he'll surely be a good pick, better than others that have been given the role.
There is no need for my opinion on the decisions of staff admins when this is already pending.
Ryanark may have killed me 11 times, yet he provided me with the means to change: Improve my RP and actions on the server. For those original hangings at the first week of this server, his actions have changed and his dedication to the server had gotten stronger and much more open towards random players like myself, to have the option to chat and talk with him much more freely. That itself is one of the main reasons he should return back as a moderator staff member on the server. That and his commitment to his work, not just his e.t/L.T dedication but the dedication he showed as he returned as an NL for a few months and supplied good quality aggressive RP towards other nations and lore for its reasoning.
