! please don't delete my post again, its unfinished business. ban me if you want, but be fair. You don't want to end it on that kind of note.

if you just post to provoke me - i'll remove it. strike one.

I removed it. I will move the conversation forward by thanking you for my friends. Thats what you did for me.

Audreyvgs 07-23-2007 11:53 PM

how come we were all mods in the darkroom, how did zen's just stick outside?

any chance of getting an ETA on final forum shut-down?

the "saying goodbyes" title is ominous, to say the least.

zen, frieda & lala all had over 10K posts, at least that was how I interpreted it. I could be wrong. :)

Will you ask first?

Is a provoked post be counted as spam now? Is that the new rule?

or strike one? :confused: :eek:

topcat 07-24-2007 12:33 AM

this all freidas fault anyway. she should have came to you instead of ze anyway.

Tunesmith 07-24-2007 12:36 AM


Well, if we weren't doomed before, we definitely are now. :(

Y'know, I may be a lowly noob and all, seeing as I haven't passed the 3,000 post count yet (thanks for the tip, Brynn!), but it seems to me like we need to start honoring ze's wishes.

And I'm not just saying that because he ranks #11 on the Top 25 Web Celebrities, was called "very funny and energetic as a presenter" by Leigh Bureau, is the five-time winner of Witch Weekly's "Most Charming Smile Award", etc. I'm saying it because he's the creator of this amazing place, and therefore he deserves some respect.

But what do I know? Once again, I'm just a lowly noob.

I could wile away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain

I'd unravel any riddle
For any individ'le
In trouble or in pain
With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'
You could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain Oh, I would tell you why
The ocean's near the shore
I could think of things I never thunk before
And then I'd sit and think some more

I would not be just a nuffin'
My head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain
I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain

topcat 07-24-2007 12:52 AM

this board
Is morally, ethically

Spiritually, physically

Positively, absolutely

Undeniably and reliably dead

As Topcat , I thoroughly examined
the board,
And she's not only merely dead
She's really most sincerely dead

I understand what auntie said about this being an 800lb gorilla. I do. But I'm thinking of it as more of a sleeping dragon. We're all the dragon, and we're all poking it in the eye.

If it isn't clear what Ze intends, this is probably because he is not yet sure what he will do. This place grew out of his work and has been part of his life for a long time; he's obviously fond of it and of many of the people here. It's clearly causing him as much pain as it is causing any of us for things to be off-kilter. I would certainly not like to be in his position.

If there's any chance of maintaining a part of the board, we have to be patient. We have to let things rest. There will be time for answers, and time for defining roles and rules. But I respectfully, oh so respectfully suggest that this is not the time. Look how quickly raw feelings arose in this thread, which was intended as a gift to Frieda, and the rest of us.

I like this place. As ridiculous as I would have thought it 6 months ago, some days, I need this place. I don't want it to go. And I know no one would be upset if they didn't feel similarly attached to it.

Consider this brightpearl's impassioned plea for a collective deep breath, for calm, patience, and letting this go for now. Where things can't be let go, perhaps they can be put aside for a while, until some of the details come into focus? Where they can't be put aside, perhaps they can be addressed privately.

I can see that there are some for whom the feelings are so raw that they'd rather see the board dead than taking a breather. It's an understandable impulse, but it's unkind to the rest of us. Anyone who isn't happy here may leave the rest of us to do as we will, and if no bridges are burned, there'll be room to return.

It's only a board, after all, and not worth so much strife. But it's such a lovely one, and worth so much effort.
