I understand it's just an analogy, but it misses a huge piece - Moderating these boards is not a 'job'. It's a volunteer position. Expecting results and meeting deadlines like a well-run business isn't realistic. Only if you say so, but if you say it is realistic, then suddenly, it is. The power of declaration is a powerful thing indeed, just as powerful as saying "well, we can't." It's like the saying goes "Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." Now, don't get me wrong, Verticle, I understand that since being a mod is a volenteer position, the mods aren't going to dedicate the level of time they do for, say, a real paying job, nor should they (IMO). But the principles that one could use in a business can still be applied, just on a different scale. I fear that if no deadline is set, a best case scenario has Comm Reforms coming around by the October at the earliest.
