I noticed lately while looking through some posts, especially on the announcements about the closure of the MB, that some of the posts got rather... vitriolic. This isn't beneficial for anyone, and is in fact rather detrimental to everyone.

 

 

 

First of all,  I understand the anger and frustration and the urge to lash out. It's perfectly normal in a situation like this. But. BUT. That anger and frustration still isn't an excuse to rip into Becky.

 

 

 

Attacking Becky is just the wrong thing to do. She's not the one making the decisions here It's not Becky's fault that this is happening. Attacking her won't change anything - it's not going to help save the MB. All it's going to do is sour the relationship between Becky and, well, us.

 

If she's being attacked by the people she's trying to help... well, that very well might make her less inclined to help and be present.

 

 

 

People who are in community-facing positions, like Becky, often have to bear the brunt of the backlash of announcing something, even if they have no control over the change and often don't understand the changes or why they were made. It's really not healthy for someone to deal with backlash like that, especially alone.

 

I'm a mod in other corners of the internet. I've seen it happen first hand to people - they get dragged down over something totally not their fault. It's awful. 

 

 

 

Please don't be part of the problem. The mods are people too. They don't deserve your vitriol.

 

 

 

Thanks for what you do and put up with, Becky.

Yeah, she as well tries others on the team to do something that forumers request too.

I try hard to check how I’m coming off in posts; if I ever sound rude or upset, I want to say that I’m very sorry- and I don’t mean to at all.

 

For those of you still trying to save the forums, I’m afraid it’s pretty much out of ours- and Becky’s- hands. The developers have probably been hard at work to make Newsfeed for awhile, and now they’re even working on a standalone version for us (and I can’t thank them enough!) and all the work’s been done to provide this when we could all just wake up one day to find the forum gone, with no replacement and no warning. I know we’re all mad, but Becky’s been amazingly transparent throughout this process!

I love seeing this

 

Becky has stated multiple times that this move is what they considered to be the best possible option for us. I feel like people keep forgetting that this site is so broken that even they don't know whats going on with it. The Newsfeed will be so much better, albeit pretty bumpy in the beginning. We've already have really good communication with the mods on Home Base, and this way they can directly handle issues at a much more effective rate than what they have before.

 

Overall, you put this very well, Leo. We shouldn't shoot the messenger, especially since this messenger is trying their hardest to help us out.

When it’s time for you to venture out, don’t let fear have you looking back at what you’re leaving behind. 

 

Yes, you guys are right. They had a few options. Here is what they are and were;

1) Take these forums down and rebuild new ones here.

2) Take them down and not rebuild them and leave us to suffer.

3) Rebuild them in Home Base.

4) Continue to try and fix them.

4 wasn’t even much of an option, sadly. The current forums are super broken past the point of repair, and if some huge forum breaking bug happened, then it might as well have been just as bad as waking up to find the forum gone; they just wouldn’t be able to fix it. At least with Home Base, they can fix Lil Phil if he breaks a bit, give us new features to enrich the experience we already get here, and get posts through faster than they ever could here. These forums have kind of “reached their limit” in a way, while Home Base still has so much potential for what can be added and changed.

Things I hope to see if Javscript or firefox will work someday;

1) A delete button that you can only use for your own posts and threads.

2) Categories; I believe these are happining

3) a bookmark in which we can only see something once in our list of things we posted on.

4) Signatures
