Apologies and Announcement
« on: September 29, 2017, 01:54:55 pm »
Hey everyone,

First off, my apologies for not being active as of late. Other priorities made the forums a second-thought for me, which was not right considering the community that has been built up here! I am only one person and should have taken action on assistance earlier.

Now the good news.

I would like to introduce @TonyH as Global Moderator. One of the most helpful people on the forums, he's been an absolute blessing to have around and I look forward to working with him to not only maintain, but grow this forum even more.

Ideally, one more help would be excellent, so if you would like to volunteer or nominate someone else, I would appreciate that!

Promise to be around more  ;D

To Admin:

May I suggest Hatrix be appointed as the second mod on our forum?

He has the necessary qualities.

Strongly considering @hatrix! Would also consider someone who can go out and recruit new active users to the community.

Lots of Facebook Groups are being shut down as of late. Could we get any of them here?

Congrats TonyH... Glad to see someones finally on-line to look after the place... based on what i've read since being here i agree you are a great choice...

As Sarah said i think Hatrix if he's willing would make another good choice as well...

Personally i am a little concerned about the " someone who can go out and recruit new active users to the community" statement tho... In all the years of being online and modding some extremely large sites over the years i have never seen anyone expect a moderator to go and look for traffic and new users...

New users find their own way for their own reasons which is usually because they need help... a call for soliciting for more new users seems like the sites adjenda has shifted to just becoming full of people then just going about trying to help people as they trickle in by finding their way on their own...

Great sites take time and a lot of work to develop as well as developing a good reputation for what it is they do if they are going to stand the test of time... trying to manage a huge inrush of people being displaced from other services can be a real pain as when that happens they usually bring a big chunk of their social structure to the new site which can clash with the existing culture... just look at the shit one pain in the arse guy created in the last little while... how long do you think a couple of moderators can handle the almost daily crap that comes with a huge site... its one thing when people are making money off it as a job but most sites like this are mod'd by volunteers who can easliy get burnt out trying to deal with things after awhile...

As a seasoned forum's and Irc owner-moderator i have seen lots of sites go down in flames when things go sideways because the sites been turning into just another social hangout because of a lack of direction... Once that happens topics tend to wander all over the place and arguments break out and the rest of the crap that goes with people just hanging on a site with no real focus of what the site was started for...

After joining here i was under the impression the sites intent was about helping kodi user's but if i was wrong and the site was actually created and meant to grow into a big kodi social site then i apologize for my statements as i was obviously wrong in coming here in the 1st place and expecting the wrong goal... I realize server space costs money and generating large volumes of traffic help pay the bills and its the owner perogative to do as they wish but for me i was just looking for some place to help Kodi users and have obviously made a mistake...

Anyways the best of luck in your endeavours...

Anyone notice similar posts on any other sites similiar to this one...

Ive not run across any in the dozen or more sites i frequent... just curious as to if its just some script kiddy playing with some software or whether its something specific to this place as someones got a axe to grind with someone...
