PDA

View Full Version : All TOPs in here please

When the TOP was started around four years ago, it was actually just done by accident. I posted a thread in the old sanex board asking if there were any Lindsay fans out there. Of course, alot of people replied including Rache, Jan, Helen, etc. After seeing so many replies, the idea of forming the clan got tossed together and was started. We all felt great. We all had fun. We had an identity as a group, as Lindsay fans, as the TOP. We made officers. We created clubs and official sites. We made an oath and a roll call. Rache even made a banner. We were provided with forums. I certainly did not have any ambitions of dictatorship or such. I was just happy that the TOP was there.

Over the years, I have learned that the TOPs do not and have not regularly engaged in verbal/insult sparring with a fellow TOP. I was complacent with that thought and had generally given free rein to everyone (as a mod in this forum) because no one really had gone beyond giving their opinion before. Thusly I did not check this forum as religously that what I thought was required. That is the reason when I posted that I was appalled by the thread that was started a couple of weeks ago. I was wrong in forgetting that things have the habit of changing.

As for encouraging, my efforts probably were more felt before, during Lindsay's long injury breaks. But more than that, I often felt that we as posters have done a very good job of rallying and perking things up. hreads that I thought needed to be posted often popped up before I started them. I didn't want to be redundant.

Also, because of this complacency, I might have let the other parts of my life take over and subjugate the others.


Basing things from all that, I should probably change my mindset about my moderating habits here.

I' m not trying to be dramatic or anything. I just want things laid out like this.

Hi jacs,

Thanks for your post. Before your post appeared on this forum, I actually deleted the thread I started, due to the trouble I felt it stirred up. Sorry for that - I persume it's the thread that you reffer to as, "That is the reason when I posted that I was appalled by the thread that was started a couple of weeks ago." At the time I posted it, I intended it to be trying to rally people in being possitive and supportive, instead it had the opposite affect - sorry :sad:

I think I'm allowed to do one stupid thing in 5 years ;) I remember the "good ol' days".

Thanks jacs, you've been a great prez! Rock on!:music:

-Rachel

PS. After today, I'm on hols for a week :wavey:

No Rache, that wasn't the thread I was referring to. It was different thread, posted weeks ago :)

I agree with you jacs. I've always thought that you should be around a bit more. I know you probably check out the forum regularly, but you don't post as much. Maybe that could make a diference. I don't know... i'm just giving out ideas.
And you could also 'talk' with the people who tend to be more aggressive or the ones that have changed the true course of the TOPs.

PS: For the "good ol' days"... ohh i remember

Glad you posted JACS. I am behind you all the way. As a Vice President of yours I have tried to be very positive about Lindsay and tried to keep things calm but I think I have probably failed of late. We do need you around JACS. As you say we were always a happy, friendly bunch and other Forums regard us as pretty good posters (from what I have read in the past) We need to keep that image. Rache, i think you only started that thread to help sort us out and in ours and Lindsay's best interest. Nothing to beat yourself up about.

We may not have Lindsay for too much longer, who knows so lets be the happy bunch we used to.

I am with you JACs, whatever and we do need you:D

2. The admins directly dealt with the said poster months ago.
