Ok guys. So here is the dealio. Torphy has stepped down from IWA creative. He has talked with me about it, and I understand why he did. I'm not going to go too much into it, as it's his business. Here is the problem. It now leaves only myself to post the show. Benny and I have talked in the past, and while he is up for helping creatively and writing matches, he can't compile and post shows. Here is the situation though. The original reason we decided not to go with two brands is because my time was being eaten up way to much with posting shows. I was unable to spend any time at home, and do any of the things I enjoy doing. I still stand by it. It might come off selfish, but I feel this is one of those instances where I'm not upset with myself for being selfish. So, that leaves as to who posts the show. As it stands right now, I have to do some thinking. One of two things is going to happen. Either someone steps up to help out, or IWA closes. Now, and I hope this doesn't come off as rude, but not just any one can step up to post the shows. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm anal about it going up in one shot, and it not taking forever, so it would have to be the right person. I just wanted to keep you all updated, so none of you find this as a blind side. So...time to do some thinking.
IWA will not shut down.
I'll post the shows, Sundays are my free days (I don't work much & I don't do anything with YouTube on Sunday), so once I start posting, shows will be every Sunday.
I refuse to let this company die goddamn it!
Would have given a short explanation earlier but I had a Karate lesson.
There is no main reason why i've stepped down, just a lot of small reasons which have snow balled.
1) Time. I gave Bear a window into my personal life, but I won't be publicising it. Suffice to say something else takes precedent over efedding and therefore IWA was always the most likely casualty.
2) In terms of story lines, a lot of changes have been forced onto us due to bans or people turning down other stories for whatever reason, and it became clear that there was no way to satisfy everyone and give them what they want whilst running a show without putting in an unreasonable amount of time and effort.
3) The roster is too large. I feel that a suitable and sustainable efed roster contains no more than 30 people per show, IWA has a lot more. Now that's a personal preference, if someone else can make it work then great, but I can't.
There were a few others that pertain to specific issues, and people, but it wouldn't be polite to go into them.
To sum up, I can't find the motivation to even take part in story discussions because I feel if they're going to be changed through no fault of our own, what's the point? My characters are going to be sticking around, for the record.
