Hello Gabriella, welcome and right now this place is like being alone but that can change. I need to pop in more but right now my gardening business is freaking me out. Very busy.

Hi

Just had a PM asking me to pass this on

Hi Rose

Hope you are well. I just tried logging onto NGL Returns but my account hasn't been activated yet - I just sent a PM on here to Trent to see if he can help as he is a Mod there. Anyway I thought I'd let you know as I just noticed there is a welcome Gabriella thread on NGL, which you wrote on  - thank you. If you are in touch with the Boyg and Johnnie who also said welcome, pls let them know I'm not being rude - I just haven't been able to log on to respond.

Regards
Gabriella


Hopefully she will be able to get on soon.

I think Shaker is the only one with the authority to activate new accounts.

Hi - Yes it is - I was hoping to get an idea of how bad the Bear Pit was as NS stated a thread on R&E about everyone being nicer to each other and not using certain words to describe certain groups. But the Bear Pit has been culled.

Ah well, everyone seems to be being nicer to each other on R&E as a result of the thread so let's see how that progresses.

How are you? Shame they haven't seen fit to rescind your ban on R&E - I supported having you back but no joy. On the other hand I'm not on R&E much as it took too much of my time - so you probably found you were also a lot more productive without pointless arguments on R&E to distract you.

Gordon won't step down and hand over admin duties to anyone else.

He's the Robert Mugabe of R&E.

Quite sad that anyone would be so attached to such petty power.

Not sure anyone else has asked to be a Mod that the current Mods will be ok to work with. I might have missed it - have not been on there a lot - just started posting again recently. They currently seem quite hands off - they make the odd "I suggest you stop digging" comment, which no one takes any notice of. And given the headache of dealing with spam, not sure if anyone else wants the job.

A lot of the strong personalities who used to cause flash points or complain to the Mods and get into power struggles don't seem to post anymore.

Dealing with personality issues and attitudes when running a business is a headache let alone modding a forum. At least at work you have some leverage as the business owner when there are disagreements - people realise that at the end of the day the business is your vision and you are the one taking the biggest financial risks.

Maybe Gordon and the other Mods are ihaving a fairly easy time and want to keep it that way.

It's a shame though - I liked your contributions most of the time and thought they added value to the forum - it's a bit more boring and quieter now - but I guess that's how the majority like it, whereas I prefer a controversial discussion. By the way, I thought you were a great Mod. Shame Gordon can't forget the past, if it is him blocking your return, and the two of you figure out a way for you both to co-exist on a forum without it turning into a power struggle.
