    I wish there was more we could do - but at least the response is there - people DO care in the JC, and I support every mod out there - it's a tough job, particularly in this forum.

    While I still think that our lovely 3NSA has the highest quality posting and general good attitude, the mods have a tough time dealing with what exactly constitutes a spoiler, as well as the problems with trolls.

    The result? The formation of this private board that the 3SA tried to copy 8-}, and a comprehensive policy on spoilers and how to be considerate.

    Anyway, "we need to elect a new Chancellor. A strong Chancellor". ;)

    Too bad there are no real elections in a dictatorship. ;)

    Have the site owners ever explained why they need this information?

    That's the kicker. Privacy issues are always a hot topic across the Internet, so it's just plain wrong of Mr. Wise to not be understanding about this issue.

    Think I'll hang on to these wooden barrels, juuuust in case....

    It would take a LOT for them to shut the boards down, and at this point, its not gonna happen. I talked to GS about the whole issue for a bit last night, and he gave extra assurance of that fact. ;)

    Well this is it. I'm leaving the boards and I won't return to TFN until the mods are reinstated. It's been real everyone. I'll be on the mirror board if you need anything!

    Mirror boards won't work--you can't get everyone there. And would you really WANT them all there? Think of all the people you don't like on the JC. Then think of a board with all the people you like and without the ones you don't like. That's the type of place you should go. You shouldn't try to lump everyone together, but instead split up into groups and cliques and go there--much more enjoyment that way. ;)

    Alright, Matt, stop plugging your darn board - although it HAS received a lot more traffic since this incident at tFN. 8-}

    I like the small private boards, but I like the size of our community here.

    C'mon - we're #3 (or whatever) on Big Boards - that's a pretty significant thing and we shouldn't give up on it right away.

    I admire your stance, Typho, but I guess as it stands now, I'd rather not give up the 3NSA, my home away from home.

    Well I'm staying put. I'm not gonna quit the JC for this. They'll have to prise my cold dead hands away from the keyboard before I leave the JC.

    That or cancel my account. Whichever's easier.

    I've also removed my icon and added a line in my sig.
    :D
    It's a shame that this thing happened in the first place, and without a reasonable explanation by Philip Wise. TFN is nothing (well almost) without the boards.

    Sapient, Stinrab and the other mods has my support all the way.

    Again, I would like to offer a big "thank you" to each and every one of you for all of the support that you have shown over the past few days.


    In order to bring a bit of normalcy to the board, I am going to go ahead and lock this thread. While I do encourage you to continue to support the mods, I think that by this point the groundwork has been laid for any of you who wish to make personal statments or protests to do so at an individual level.




    :) Mace Windy,
    too windy for words!
