About my own role here
That said, I must say that I havenít been here as active as I sometimes wanted to be. There are several reasons for this.
1) One is simply that I have a live outside the board. Some people seem to think that a mod should be here 24/7, if youíd see some complaining posts that I have received in the past why this or that wasnít done yet, wasnít updated or whatever...
Iím doing what I can, within reason, within my free time, just like any mod should do.
Iím not here to hold hands, or put my bed in here, as none should; it just wouldnít be a healthy situation.
In that sense I would be very grateful if people would be willing to understand this fact and stop mailing me to complain why this or that wasnít done yet. Itís all very normal to do so if it is with good reason; I mean when something wasnít tackled or done since weeksÖThen I should get a complaint or better, a friendly reminder, by all means.
People can always contact me, PM me, mail me, use msn, whatever, if something is the matter and they want to discuss it or bring it to my attention. I have no problem with it at all, thatís part of my role too. It can take some days before Iím able to reply, but I will reply to any decent question or mail.
I do have a problem if people behave like spoilt children and are unreasonable, however. Sorry for being so blunt, but I feel this is the best way to get my message across to the ones concerned.
2) Another reason is that my life has been particularly demanding and challenging, more than good for someone, but thatís how life is sometimes, nothing to be done about that.
So if you donít Ďseeí me sometimes, itís most probably because I just donít have the time or the energy at that moment. I canít predict how my week will look like, so I hardly can predict when I can be here to do more than simply guarding the postings.
