I brought it up at the meeting on Friday, but it was quickly passed over, because I think a lot of people don't want to face this issue, but I feel this fanforce has communications issues. If someone has a problem with someone else nothing gets said. Instead resentment builds up and a lot of behind-the-back-talk and gossip develops, which is never a good thing for a group of people like this. A case in point would be the issue of John's CR-ship. Granted it's been more than a year since he was last really active, but no one took the time to actually TALK to him. I've pm-ed him hundreds of times since his sabattical and he's always gotten back to me promptly, whether it's a board issue, or something else. He has an email address and he's always willing to talk over the phone, and yet no one talked to him about his activity as CR. Instead I heard a lot of "Where's John?" and "Howcome he hasn't been to events?" and the like, and while I'm "E.D." (no special ed jokes ) and I don't mind answering questions, I think it would have been far more productive to just PM john and find out what was going on with him. But that's just one of many specific incidences in this group where no one tried communicating their issues. That's why I created this thread. I figure we're all adults in the figurative sense, if not the literal, and that we can discuss our issues with each other, if any, so instead of just talking about a persons activities that you find aggravating, or annoying, just bring it up here (or try PM-ing them if you don't feel comfortable making it public) and give them a chance to respond themselves. Just make sure to stick to the TOS, and be civil and try to keep criticism constructive. Remember we're all human beings here and we need to keep that in mind.
