Hello everyone, this is Alex Ade, aade8, the HJ at the Indy CC's. I made a mistake in a ruling earlier today that quite possibly cost the player her game. Her opponent played a Professor Rowan, and accidentily shuffled his one card he was supposed to keep into his deck. I was called over, and without thinking it through, I asked him if he knew which card it was, and if he did, to find it, and reshuffle his deck. I realize just how wrong that was after the fact when it was too late to overturn my ruling. Later on, the girl went to the PTO, as she should've, and asked him about the situation. He called me over, I told him what had happened exaclty (I don't lie about my wrongdoings). I admitted that I was the one at fault. After friends of hers came to her defense saying that such a misplay (the misplay of the Rowan) could've resulted in a game loss for her opponent, and should've been an auto win for her (because she had ended up losing the game). The PTO looked in the rulings index, and found that nothing could be done so long after the fact, except to assign a severe penalty to me, the HJ. I was upset, but I continued to do my job, and accepted that it was what I deserved. I went to both the girl and her friends and sincerely apologized for the situation, and offered to make it up to her in any way I could. She declined, and it seemed that we had come to an understanding (that I was at fault, and that I truly felt bad about everything that had occurred). Now this post comes: http://pokegym.net/forums/showpost.php?p=1002665&postcount=2 I want this person to know that I hold nothing against them, and only wish to know what else they would have me do. I feel so bad. My PTO probably isn't going to let me judge again, which means my Pokemon career is over (because I enjoyed judging and working with the players). Is this punishment not enough? What do you think?
