Yes, this was wrong, the staff learned from their mistakes and they won't do that again. I think Joey made that pretty clear.

You're missing the point. What he's saying is that he worked hard to try and get as many votes as possible (which he kinda did) and you just brushed it off and elected your own mods anyway. I've got nothing against Kley and GhostHawk, but people are pissed because you made a poll for the members to elect one new mod and you made your own judgements instead. I can't really speak without repeating what the others have said in a better way.

Politicians spend millions of dollars and work very hard for their campaign. Most don't get elected.

This could be related to hypothetical situations - for example, say if an election for a new political party was underway (much like it will be here next year) and, I dunno, liberals got the most votes from the public, but the Govt. says "yeah... we kinda... we thought the other one would be better so.. we sorta just empowered that one."
I get that these are different situations (hence I said hypothetical), but if the people want something and a poll is put in place for these kind of things then it only seems logical to follow the poll's outcome. Stop acting like the world is against you for no reason. You made a mistake and you're dodging it.

That would be the government intervening where they shouldn't. I said from the beginning that the final decision was going to be made by the admins. Kley was, also, only trailing by 4 votes in the poll, so it's not like we promoted somebody who didn't receive close to the same support from the community. We have also already said that the voting system was flawed, as people began to vote for their friends and stuff. We got the top five, and then picked which ones we wanted. That's pretty much what we said we'd do.

I said "thank you for your opinions" to Knux because he was expecting us to do what he said.

I'm only really annoyed because you did exactly what everyone expected in the end instead of what the rest of the community wanted - picked the two people who had been in the community the longest. I wouldn't have cared if you picked Natsu - he had the most votes, he should have won over me. But instead neither of us get a chance as the completely expected happens, despite the hopes of the community that you all might actually listen for once.

And I spent the entire time warning Joey not to do this and he ignored me.

He should listen to me. I've made these mistakes.

I don't often take what Knux says heavily into consideration because a lot of it can relate back to his decisions as an administrator.

I can't think of any of your mistakes that is equivalent to this, Knux, but feel free to share.

Also, once we started this it would've been a much worse idea to quit.

...Why? You even admitted it was a mistake to have this election, and now you're saying that it would have been a bad idea to quit? That's contradictory, Joey.

That's not contradictory at all. If we just stopped the entire election and said "sorry this was a bad idea", we would've taken a lot more heat.

The majority were telling you to do that. You made it worse for yourself. You should have quit.
