Another "me too" thread...

See ya. I'm outta here.

I've been a mod since back when all mods did on this board was help people out; it was a community where people cared about each other and treated one another with respect. We didn't have to enforce discipline.

Things became more challenging as the size grew. The mods who first threw in the towel today were all the ones who really stepped up to keep this chaos in check. There's no way I can (even if I were inclined) begin to fill the void left by those good folks and I don't want to pretend that I am.

I just want to say that those mods didn't quit because their's was a difficult job; they quit because VS wouldn't do dick to back them up or consider their experience or value their efforts. I can already see the earth opening up to swallow the good and valuable in this board. I'm not going to stay around and watch.

I hope to see some of you elsewhere on the net or in person (I'll certainly see my locals now and again) but I won't be popping in here much, especially once the new format comes on line.

Ciao.

Now that sure sounds like a money gripe.

Was it a money gripe?

Were the mods asking for financial compensation ? ? ?

Dude,

No offence but you're new here and that was uncalled for. The Mods here have always donated their time and efforts and have for the most part done a fantastic job IMO.

I know Crash as he is from my local area and he is a man of uncompromising character.

He will be missed.

Thanks for all your efforts Crash!!!

Re: Another "me too" thread...

thank you for all of your efforts Crash!

I found it amazing that the moderators who do so much work to ensure the forum is/was a success were not financial re-embursed when it was sold.

I'd like to thank all the moderators for their efforts - I visit a fair few of the sections and they are all great.

If you're ever down this end of the earth drop me a line and I shout you a beer! (The official Australian sign of friendship!)
