Resignation

Recommended Posts

I've decided to resign as an Admin/moderator on this site, it's just not worth the hassles, Mick now has my resignation and I asked him to remove my status as Admin. I don't contribute a great deal to the site, and haven't for a couple of years.

I'm not back tracking from my decision, my mind is made up and my decision is final.

Really sorry to read this Ayup but I’m not at all surprised by your decision.  The troublemakers on this forum have a lot to answer for.   

Thank you for your endeavours to keep control of things and hope you will continue to look in ...... if, indeed, Nottstalgia exists for much longer.  

A very sad situation.

Such a shame that you've been unceremoniously driven out John. You'll be sorely missed.

John.  I just don't know what to say.  You've always done  a great and fairminded job.  Thank you.  I hope you'll still drop in when you can.

Nobody said the job was in Cognito.  Too far for me to travel I'm afraid .

Right, and straight, that's me Col, but I certainly don't profess to be a star.

I can't really see why this thread is here.

 

If someone wants to leave a position of authority on a forum it is of little concern to the rank and file membership, only to the boss. No need for big announcements in a new thread. This is made even more relevant by the statement:

I don't contribute a great deal to the site, and haven't for a couple of years.

Because it's a sad day for the site, when a well respected member of staff is ridiculed and then hounded out solely because he has the guts to stand up to a few argumentative and childish individuals who are intent on boring the majority of members senseless, thereby they give up posting, and then they can have the site to themselves. This is now currently happening !

Benjamin, I am already a moderator on two other forums and I don't think I would be able (or want) to cope with the politics et cetera that is present here.

I have been an admin on another forum which did tend to veer towards being unnecessarily political. I told the leader and just stopped participating. That's all that I thought was required. I'm still a member of that forum and I follow its progress on a sort of monthly basis with a very occasional contribution. There is no loss on either side.

Well said Fly. We have the situation where the site has become virtually monopolised and the regular members have become brassed off with it. It would seem that this problem is not being addressed by whoever is running the show.

The problem seems to be that there isn't anyone running the show.

Not much wrong with this Forum in my opinion - I read the Topics I'm interested in then hit the "Mark Site Read" button !!

Have to agree it don't warrant a big diva type announcement, it can be done private.  

 

Anyway good luck youth.
