Most of the people who made these forums fun for me have moved on and become inactive except for a few like VulcanFanatic and Gothneo. I find it difficult to have an opinion about something without a certain couple of guys in the group jumping on me and others for it. Therefore, I am moving on as well. It will never be as good it used to be and the politics, profanity and bullying have a lot to do with that. So, it's been fun, but I am going to stick to Facebook. So long. And could someone PLEASE delete my collection topic.
And that's why so many asked me to get involved in.
But I'm fascinated as to why you would post a goodbye in a thread (by someone with the power to do something) about eliminating the very things that you say you are leaving over. In fact action has already been taken.
Perhaps I should rephrase? I'm simply going to ask that you think quite a bit about the questions that you want to ask And ask the proper ones the 1st time.. It should require a lot of thinking as to why changing the questions in any form is going to upset those that care enough to actually vote.
I forget who said it up there but I've never actually been totally away I just never logged in much to Read. I've sort of let everyone do what they want. However I recently had quite a few people contact me asking if someone could step in and do some moderating
The HSBR and FHC, yep it has been a long time since Ive heard from any of them. We should probably start a Trektoy group on Facebook, just in case we should one day come here and find that this site goes the way of the old AA boards. Im just thinking about old members like Jules Loves Shinzon and Captain Burns and Im feeling nostalgic!
I started this forum and I lived here almost 24 / 7. It started so small and it was exciting to see it grow after the forum at Art Asylum ended. Each new member joined and it was exciting. I think that where I went wrong was trying to be to nice. I let things slide that I should not have. I was scared that I would lose members. In the end I let such negativity loose, that I got to where I hated to come here. I would come by and read without logging in on rare occasions. Today I dropped by and I decided something. I'm going to bring a little order around here. Something I've learned over these years away. I now manage about 60 people and 10 million in equipment. We service about 60,000 customers a week. Along the way I've learned that you do everything that you do everything that you can to keep a customer but there is a line in the sand and if they cross it, things change. You may invite a guest into your into your home, but you don't let them kick your dog.
Lets start small.
If you feel that you cannot make a post without using profanity, don't make it.
No politics rules still stand
No religion stands
Don't start a poll then change the questions. I don't think it's necessary to make a rule on that is it?
I really am starting to understand as well why a lot of the old members are not here anymore...hell the Owner doesnt even post on here. Way too much bitterness and complaining goes on here now. TBH..I wouldnt doubt FHC lets the board close after the year is up. It has become a forum to complain about everything and nitpick every little damn thing. It really is sad
Yeah I read as a guest a lot. I figure if the members want to post a 4000 word post about the paint on a figures boot being off, I figure if they don't vent they might jump off a bridge.
