No you didnt fail at all. Besides, youre new here (and welcome by the way :) ) so this is all just stuff you learn as you go
The red staff members generally take care of some of the higher up managment, and they are the Gods Goddess and Genies
The purple staff memebers handle stuff like moving threads and some of that other stuff, they are the Sirens, Satyrs and Sidhe's.
Needless to say its not wrong what you did, its just that it could have gone to one of the purple staff members.
