    Very nice to hear a response. I agree with not bringing in a voting system. I feel that members here are feeling a sense of entitlement. At the end of the day, this is a free support site. If you chose to you can purchase a a broader membership which grants you certain extended "privileges" but certainly not a vote in how QP wishes to run things here.
    It's always been spoken this way; if anyone feels the Mods aren't up to snuff or they feel slighted or things aren't fitting within the expected experience click the little X...

    And to add, there will never be a middle ground. Sorry, but that's just how it is. With the recent PITA "issue", there is the group that want her gone from STAFF (if she were to come back & be a part of it again) & there's the group that have no problem with her being a part of it. Get rid of her, and one group is satisfied but the other is not & vice versa. It'd be the same with a voting system. You don't always have to like the people who are on the STAFF team but by being a part of this site, it's something you just have to deal with or you can go. JMO & yous are general.

    Exactly

    ETA: QP, thanks for dispelling any speculation about the voting thing. I was curious if that was going to be considered and it's good to know your take on it

    I think that's a good point too Rissa. There are thousands of people on the site and it's going to be impossible to please everyone. At the end of the day we have to have a final authority to make those decisions. I'm positive that QP isn't trying to invalidate anyone's feelings or come off like she doesn't care. She just has to make her decision and stick with it, and it's inevitable that some people will agree and some people will disagree.

    eta: i do appreciate the response and feedback though. thank you.
    Honestly, what's the point? Why should she spend 2 hours reading it all when Sam is already gone?

    Of course I won't leave if there are one or two things I don't like. That's ridiculous. I bet there are one or two things everyone doesn't like about these boards. I'll leave if and when the bad outweighs the good.

    a.) This reads like a vague callout.
    b.) So you can complain about the site til the cows come home and not be told to click the little X, but others do so in an organized way and get the brush off? Sweet

    I don't want an overhaul of the mods, but some people do. I don't have a problem with them voicing their concerns. I'm glad they feel comfortable enough here to voice their concerns.

    I'm not sure what to take from your post, QP, but thanks for checking in.
