I think this has indeed been taken out of proportion.
I don't think its fair to bring in discord related discussion to SAES RP. That is indeed called metagaming and unfair towards anyone involved. Instead of applying this to one person Ardron, in this case being IG8820, you have applied it to everyone in FBI which is unfair and not true. 95% of FBI were not involved, so your stating that FBI as an Police Organisation was responsible for what happened and calling FBI out, that is not fair on FBI as a whole. To remind you there were various people involved from various squads and organisations. I wont be calling out these organisations as there is no need too.
The 'coup' that took place was something which could have been organised better @IG8820. Roleplay should be organised between two parties and be agreed before it occurs. I understand your ideology behind it but you defiantly took the wrong approach at it from what I can tell.
@Joe I would like to remind you that the last 5 elections have all included a coup . During my time as Secret Service Director a specific criminal organisation attacked the white house multiple times, declaring it as 'roleplay' but in fact the Director of the Secret Service (being me at the time) did not agree to the roleplay. However it still occurred. This was something which was supported by Admins and staff. I find it very unfair and dishonest from the SAES HQ and the SAES Team to be punishing/calling out people from doing wrong when in fact it was perfectly acceptable when it suited them.
This should have been handled privately between yourself, Ardron and IG. From that private conversation you could have then developed the government roleplay rules to put in place which you have already announced in this topic. Once those rules were fully developed you could have then announced them to everyone, so everyone is aware of the new rules and then everyone has a fair chance to abide by them. However, instead you decided to take sides and immediately and harshly accuse someone of being a 'sore looser' which is unprofessional.
In this situation, no one is in the right. Everyone has done wrong in some way. Now being men and not kids, can you take this to private talks and messages and @Ardron delete this thread please as it is directed towards the FBI as a whole which is not fair. @IG8820 I would suggest you remove your topic about FBI separation as I think this is something that needs to be discussed between the FBI HQ team not just decided by yourself.
@Joe please dont take it as if I am 'having a go' as I am not. I just think this could have been handled a lot better. I have made my fair few mistakes in the past and I learned from them. Everyone makes mistakes gents but lets act like men and move forward and deal with this in the correct fashion. This topic and IG topic has benefited NO ONE.
Side Note: Don't rip into my literature and punctuation please, that was least on my mind when writing this.
