This submission was written more than 4 years ago, and the Citadel was a different place. Arguments about voting etiquette were rampant and this was my two cents on the matter. Some members left during this point because of some of the things mentioned above. There was a lot of trend voting, and if you want to open a can of worms ask about visible votes.
In hindsight, it was not quite the problem we thought it was. There were still a number of talented writers who did leave and didnt come back. Some deleted all of their content, others simply left in disgust. Go to Comment
