Nellie, I already told you what I think but I'll repeat it .... it would be a big mistake for you to resign.  The WF members love you and so do we, there aren't enough female admins and we don't want to lose one!!  :mrgreen:

 

Please reconsider Nel.  :) jv

 

Me too

Nellie,,

Some mistakes were made by a mod in my opinion,,those mistakes could have been corrected by the mods themselves with little backlash if any.

 

Your a tremendous asset to this forum the windows forum TC forums and to the computing community in general in your tireless efforts with helping to bring spyware and other nasties under control.

 

I think it would be a rotten shame for you to quit that forum over a silly screwup by a mod or two,,your a great admin and a great lady.

 

Do us all a big favor let things cool down and rethink your position on leaving WF as an admin,,your much too valuable to just up and leave over this matter.

 

Hell all us admins have our own ways of going about things,,yours are a little different than mine but your in abit of a different culture than I am too,,I really like folks to just air out whats buggin them in a polite way and deal with it as best I can,,but I kinda like doing it on the open forum because it gives folks an Idea of who I am and how I come to a conclusion on matters,,don't care alot for secrecy.

 

Well hope your not still mad with me Nellie,,and that you do reconsider. :) vj

volt, you are an anal retentive clown and had no business interjecting on behalf of your buddy moon. How would you react to an outsider telling you how to run this place?

We had a hard freeze here the other night and all my plants have turned to mush--- compost---now I have a surplus---- If you want to use it to throw at each other---- I will send it to you.

 

This is a good thread --- Lots of venting -- good for the soul---Ya all shoulda done gardeneing instead of keyboarding---- way better for the soul.

northamuk,,

I never singled out anyone for being wrong,,some parts of moderating are strict judgment calls,,I felt that the questions raised by Moon were legit ones. then when his thread was closed I had no choice but to start a new thread on that forum.

 

I don't ever try to tell folks how to deal with sticky problems,,but think an open discussion won't hurt that forum or anyone else involved in it. I hope you can see my point on this.

 

I'm the outsider on this forum most of the time,,I try and see things from all sides and strike a happy medium,,it don't always work but I do try.

 

Maybe a laxative is in order tho :mrgreen: vj

Volt, although I tend to agree with your actions, it's not worth holding a grudge against them. Everyone has different views on things, and that's where confrontation starts. You're an excellent mod, and dare I say, one of the best we have around here. Don't ruin your reputation by being a hypocrite and starting a war of the wits. You're better than that!

 

Sir T, Northamuk posted a threatening message on the Windows Forum in your regard. I notified the moderators immediately, so he's about to get kicked again! :lol:

 

Moon, I hope you and volt both got the closure you were seeking. Let's try to keep things steady from this point on.

 

Nellie, I hope you made the decision we all hoped you'd make, and kept your position as forum administrator. Even during this incident, you were like the glue that held everything together. Don't bring yourself down or feel discouraged about the job you're doing, because you're just the kind of person who should be honored with such a position! :)

 

Let's all be glad that we have this community to talk amongst each other, and share our opinions. It's thirty minutes to midnight here, so good night and God bless!

Jackofalltrades,

 

Sorry, Mate I just have to say this, for Moon, Volt and Sir T's sake!

 

The restraint shown by those three guys was an inspiration to us all, as was the polite restraint shown by the Moderators who stepped in to defuse a developing situation.

 

BTW Volt is more than a Moderator, Mate, like Nellie2, at Windows Forum, he is the most popular person on this Forum, simply because he quitely fixes things up, with the least hassles to anyone, but trust me, don't ever cross Volt or you will definately get Zapped!! That is what his Title implies, and better believe it! That is the way it goes with him!

 

The Pit has had it's share of problems over the years, sometimes it has gotten heated, but we always try to look at things as a big Family, and usually understand what needs to be done from time to time. Volt is our Leader then and works tirelessly to resolve it!

 

Over the time, Volt, Ax, Dave, Rob, all the Moderators, and many of our Members have helped Windows Forum out in their times of need, indeed other Forums have benefitted from the Help and expertise of the Pit. Volt Posted to pass a Comment, exactly the same as he would on the Pit, expecting the same consideration he gives to all!

 

He was treated unfairly, said so, and that is all he implied! If you read what was Posted by the person, from Windows Forum, here, that then went back to the other Forum to Post a threat? to Sir T, I am sure that the real beef is not about PitStop, Windows Forum relationship, rather about someone in a Managerial Position at Windows Forum just simply going too far. Then compounding it when he was sacked.

Well I've read through everything and this is what I have to say on the matter at hand.

 

The WF as a whole is not to blame for anything whatsoever. Seems to me that the fault lies with a particular member of the moderating team over there. Volt, I see you did nothing wrong with airing your views about the mistreatment of Moon. You said your piece, bit your tongue to be as polite as possible, when some others might not have been able to remain so diplomatic about it, and you were then treated badly. But let's not hold the entire forum at fault for the actions one or a few. We wouldn't want people going around saying the Pitstop is unfair because of the actions of a few people here. That wouldn't be fair.

 

You are undoubtedly one of the most respectful people I've ever come across, and are able to hold your temper when most others wouldn't, and for that alone you have my utmost respect and admiration. I have never known you to personally attack anyone for any reason, even after what I would call, ample provocation. Moon, same goes for you my friend.

 

I think it is a good policy to air things out in public for the most part. Yes some things are better left to PM's, as they may very well be of a more personal nature, but for the most part things I believe letting the rest of the forum know what is going on is not all bad either. I have been on many forums over the years, and can honestly say I've never had the priveledge of being associated with any finer mods/admins that the fine people you find right here at the Pit. That said, I've rambled on enough. I guess you could say I've aired my opinion now too. Cheers everybody!

I hope that means you are staying on as an Admin, Nellie??

 

If so?

Northy is sacked and I've resigned.... happy now!

This is a sorry tale indeed....Nellie, I really do hope you will or have reconsidered....WF needs people like yourself and I, personally, hope you stay :) ....Keep up the good fight and don't let an isolated incident colour the belief that you are/were doing things for the good of everyone concerned....

 

Moon....I know you had no malice aforethought and maybe, out of this, you did expose a weakness in the set up at WF, with regards to a moderator issue....

 

I know the majority of people here and at WF will be able to rise above this, put it behind them and move on...Lessons learned are always a good thing but for that to culminate in the loss of an admin, who is held in high esteem by many, seems a trifle too much like the tail wagging the dog.....regime change can keep things fresh but taking the rudder off the ship could leave it floundering....Let's hope this is all resolved sensibly....Here's to balance and discernment :beer:
