I appreciate the response, and if your word is bond, then I dont see anything but the forum continuing as usual. Again, I only speak for myself, though.Hi @Topher_osAUrus
I do feel a bit hesitant with a few of the posters here, but I'm working on understanding your point of view and only viewing you as a very concerned member.
And someone did go off, but by PM.
The 2 year plan? I see it as a just going forward plan. In two years, we hope to have the forum being a good place for members, having a few ads that are shown mostly to logged out. We have a Supporting Membership which is purely voluntary, and members can still post, reply and have private messages if they do not become a Supporting Member. The financials are a long term outlook. And then the owner (Admin) will not make a killing.
Who is Poe? The only one I know wrote "The Raven" and such things.
However, I still find it a bit curious that the business name, and mysterious man admin are an enigma.
Yea, i know, internet, anonymity, whatever.
Tit for tat?
Want to know me? Christopher Lankford Kingman Kansas. Ive done PLENTY of terrible things in my past (can maybe look it up, i dont know, never googled myself) , been a lonnng time since then, and have been living a much much more honorable life since waking up and getting my shit together. I can see that you have a bit of reservation putting that info out there, because of us concerned citizens ...but, you're a business, no? Dont businesses want the clout of their past and present endeavors? Maybe to show those in current and future deals can rest assured that the show will go on..
...and Poe.. well.. search him on here.
While it shouldnt be a great deal, that is kindof one more point of contention. The history of this forum lives in this accumulation of threads and posts. Its probably just me, but I feel that is of importance, and should be to the higher ups in charge too...Angie...admin...to whom it may concern... ...because you never know when that past will once again become relevant. Whether its seeing a ghost from the past come back and post after years of hiatus, good or bad., ...or if its a banned villain returning to salt the ground in which we tend to grow on. It matters.
I dont think I'm that difficult to get along with, or to please. I have asked for so little. ...and its something that i am sure 99% of the hardened members would have no issue with it being asked of them..
