Just putting it out there...

Post by Easydrinker » Sat Sep 14, 2019 1:29 am

I admit to hating seeing polls appear on the old site, for many reasons.
But here is one about myself.
I feel moved to post this one for various reasons.
I see this site as a place that people with common interests can share, help and just have a chat.
It is intended as a friendly place, and the small Admin. team do it for love, not money. Maybe for just a little self percieved kudos?
I was instrumental in getting this site up and running.
I never expected to have any admin. role on this site, I simply wanted to keep the old forum alive.
We are fortunate in having a mostly back-stage tecky guy to take care of that side of things.
I have spent the last 6 months evaluating posters and making mods or admin of them, not many at all, and apologies if you have not yet been asked.
I would choose on quality and not numbers of posts.
If you have some spare time and wish to step up. please do so, but please do not be offended if declined.
Merit should be the cincher here.
And there is the nub,I am starting to feel like a dictator.
Honestly, we have Moss, Pinky and Curmudgeon and myself.
We currentlly are doing tickety-boo.
I think.
I also think that maybe I should let this site find it's own legs and walk away from me.

I intend to leave this post and thread up for two weeks, and then delete it all, so be as rude as you wish.

Robert,
There is no ONE way.

Be a shame to see you go but it must be your personal choice.
I have never had any negative experiences on this site so I think you are all doing a good job.

I'm new here and must say I really appreciate it and enjoy posting and reading it's nice that people can have different opinions and not have to sing from the same hymn sheet. That I feel is down to the admins and members

I've learnt a lot from you all and must say if it broke don't fix it:+1:
Deja pooh. I've seen this shit before :chart_with_downwards_trend:

I think we have reached a nice balance. It would be very easy to lose members [and posts] to the likes of the Facebook and others. We need the strength of characters, knowledge and regular posters to do that.
I for one would be very sad to see you leave.
I am voting Glue.

Why leave? If you do "tickety-boo" how are you a dictator?
I just found my way here and don't post much but from what I see here its working good.

Also I would vote "stop fishing for compliments you needy teenage girl" but don't see the option :lol:

I will admit that the OP was due to a lot of loopy juice, and a (for me) genteel response to what I considered a rude post.
I am going through a late life crisis, and may be poohing bricks ahead of a/my first helicopter flying lesson this coming week. 4 metres from the ground is the top of my comfort zone!
Also, after more than 20 years, I am now on mains and not pumped water, and odd as it may seem, the virtual silence of turning on a tap as opposed to the intro of
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqJ-ETSG4fs
Is freaking me and the cat out.
We have known the floor to vibrate for so long that it now seems like magic. Weird.
I think that I have answered my own unasked query -
I need to step back and chill a little.
"stop fishing for compliments you needy teenage girl"- that I like. :)
I will leave the thread up for the time I stated, despite it making me look a bit daft, - I have a whole sack of shame, it reminds me of who I am.:cold_sweat:

Easy - Take some more water with it!

You are integral and what we have would have been very different without you

We didn’t see eye to eye on a few things aft the epoch, and we still have some differences of opinion and direction now, but between us, the admin/mod team and our members, we have something worth doing.

You don’t have to live on the board - I don’t, but you are needed here

Have you tried turning it off and back on again?
