Time for a change

Given recent views expressed, I have decided to hand the administration of the forum back to Shaker. My name will stay as Admin briefly until he confirms he has the admin powers back.

I do not intend to stay as a user.

There are some I will miss - and I've known online for over ten years now. But this is simply one extra stress I do not need.

I'm sorry to hear that Lexi ** Edited.  This is not the Bear Pit **

I think you were very good at the admin

You listened to both sides!  You always struck me as fair!

I respect that you could stand back and not get drawn in!

I am really, really sorry to see you go Lexi!

It would be unforgivably remiss of me not to try (and, alas, almost certainly fail) to express my gratitude to Lexi for having been such a superlative captain of the good ship NGLReturns for so long. If they handed out medals for adminship - or adminhood? - Lexi would take the gold:  



I'm extremely sad that she's decided not to stay on as a user, however, and hope - as all of us will be hoping - that she'll reconsider
Jim

Why leave, Lexi?
Your posts - especially on the blog room - have been inspiring and well worth the read.
Thanks for all you've done here, but this had better not be your last post!
Jim.

Oh dearie me! Lexi please don't!

As one of the sanest and fairest people here you are desperately needed.

Please ignore your detractors, they are blind to gold standards.

Much love,

Leonard.

My sincere gratitude to you for the second chance you gave me and for your fairness as a admin. I fear that many will cease posting now,  including me. Shaker will return the forum to it original state,  when he created it.

God bless you Lexi and keep you safe Lexi

Ralph

PS please reconsider.

To all posters who support Lexi, please beg her to stay. She may change her mind if enough of us plead with her.

I would love Lexi to stay! I really would.

But that wouldn't suit the backstabbers!

And I wouldn't wish them on Lexi!

LEXI, PLEASE RECONSIDER
JMC

Hello, relatively new poster here.

I'm in the position of having known about this forum since it was set up, and have had even looked in a couple of times between then and when I joined this year. I joined when I did - and not before - because I felt I could trust the current admin (Lexi) and mods (Ketty and trentvoyager) to run the forum well and fairly.

Nothing since then has caused me to change my mind about that.

It seems most of the problems have occurred in the Bear Pit, but nothing said there is inappropriate for that section.

To sum up: no need to fix what isn't broken!
trentvoyager

Thank you JMC.

I think some posters are getting this a bit out of proportion.

Shaker created this forum and is no more fond of banning posters than lexi is. I myself am on record as having stated that I do not like banning posters at all.

I think thrre are occasions when it's necessary but to my mind at the moment no poster currently posting on this site needs to be banned.

Agreed. I do think that some drama fans are already thinking ahead to looking back to the Great Easter Sunday Massacre of 2014 or something - the Wet Sunday Afternoon of the Long Knives.

I don't think there will be a swathe of bans now the admin has changed, but the site I joined was a site with Lexi at the helm, not anyone else. My comments about how I think the board is well run was connected with that state of affairs, as I thought Lexi hadn't made the final decision yet. Unfortunately it seems she has.

Yes, thank you.

Quite.

Has a post disappeared from this thread? I seem to remember Ralph2's previous post - now the last post of the previous page - was at the top of this one...  
Shaker

Not me this time!
Quizzimodo

Can I add to the voices hoping Lexi will reconsider?

This is a well run, fair board & Lexi can take a lot of credit for that
Ketty

Can I remind everyone that this is not the Bear Pit.  This thread is Lexi saying her farewell (hopefully not for too long), and for the rest of us to express our thanks.  Its purpose is not to carry on any squabbles.
JMC

I suppose that's an indirect answer to my question further up the thread regarding disappearing posts.

Expressing the hope that Lexi changes her mind, and saying the forum was very good with her as Admin - with reasons, rather than just as an empty platitude - is a legitimate purpose for posting here too. Seeing as Lexi mentioned "recently expressed views" as a reason for leaving, rebuttals and disagreements with those expressed views are part and parcel of that, I'd have thought.

I would have thought it obvious that if part of Lexi's decision is because of our collective 'carrying on', the last thing she'd want to see is for any 'carrying on' to continue outside of the Bear Pit.  

If it wasn't obvious, then hopefully it is now.

It wasn't obvious, and to be honest I don't agree that it is "carrying on" to state Lexi is a good admin and to disagree - with reasons - with any opinions expressed to the contrary.

What is obvious is that "recently expressed opinions" made her feel she should leave. That being the case, she has left and relinquished admin-ship under false pretenses, as the responses from almost every poster on this thread testifies (hence, I didn't see any squabbles either...)

Don't worry, Boyg, I saw your post of agreement before it inexplicably disappeared. Maybe agreeing counts as squabbling, now.  
Shaker

It would only be "false pretenses" if Lexi was lying about her reasons for leaving. I don't think she's a liar and have no reason to doubt her word - I have no reason not to take her statements at face value. So no false pretenses.

Moved to the Bear Pit. It appears that only moderators are allowed to quote your post in this thread.

No I don't think Lexi is lying about her reasons, just that her reasons are based on a false premise (which I should have said rather than false pretense): that the discontent with her ability as admin is far, far, greater than it is in reality. Clearly this thread has brought out more than a few posters who support Lexi and believe she is an excellent admin.., and you were one of them.

That is all good in itself, but it would be even better if Lexi actually saw that the support was genuine and that we really would prefer her as admin here, and change her mind. Whether it will happen, I'm not so sure. It's a human trait to take criticism to heart more than a compliment, even though a criticism can be unreasonable too - the recent criticism (from only two posters) of Lexi falls under the "unreasonable" banner.
Ketty

For now this will be locked.  Any carrying on can carry on in the Bear Pit.  Lexi hopefully knows how much she'll be missed and how much we want her to stay - the other 'stuff' that's been happening on this thread is not for here.  If you don't like that decision then tough, I'm sure you'll make your thoughts known.
