........ it's even more of a pity to see some who've spoken about the community then deciding to leave & deleting content before doing so, thats hardly thinking of the community is it, & not really fair either on those who've already taken the time & effort to contribute.
Can't believe that you just said that... Thinking of the community?? As if the said person, Supercharged16v, hasn't offered enough!!!!! Shockingly misplaced statement or just wrongly presented DP? I feel that to have his input deleted may sound only as selfish as he has shown
himself to be unselfish,, what with so many other members that have gained from his input.
I feel that emotions may have risen to the level where he wouldn't want to give any more of his worth to something that he feels doesn't sit well with him.
DP. He didn't think community. He made community.
I wouldn't want to question that in a guy who's done so much, alongside other valuable techies like Shrew...
They will be missed.
..........it does seem to be taking a long time to come up with a solution to a fairly simple looking problem.............
Alas problem is simple, but people are more complicated. Will give time.
One thing that strikes me is the way some of the mods seem to take personal stances to matters. Surely don't complain about being an unappreciated mod (some may well be) and carry grumpily along. Don't like it, get out of it. Better a happy civvie than an unhappy mod
. That would be a more profesional aproach and in agreement to the professional like conduct of your responsibilites as mods. You will probably be unshacked from felt burden.
Now then... I am the kind of guy who doesn't like the same arguments going on without doing something about it.
So I will offer a possible solution/action that may help diffuse the bad sentiments.
A suggestion. Call it a white flag, loosening the knot,2nd, 3rd chance or whatever.
How about unlocking all the locked/closed threads????
And possibly returning posts back to the way they were before this all kicked off (call it take 2?)
As a jesture from the powers that be, to let the discussion continue to a comprehensible conclusion, to give the mods a break and let the members express themselves..
All ranting will be done, hopefully a better spirit will arise, and we're all winners..
