Wow-  Color me surprised!  I read the link you posted &:

 

So they are going to delete all my posts??   :reading_the_manual:

 

How awful that all my nonsense won't be available for one and all!! :hitting_self_roller:

 

Alan, it is a sad day when I read what you had to say yet also too familiar in another place that ate itself up..  Take some time off and BREATHE but don't be a stranger..  Things are going to get busy real soon with the mowing season upon us and I, as well as many other members will lose without you around banging the windows..  

 

Fare thee well..

WOW, this is a shock, just as a question, what is actually going on, are they going to start going after certain members?

No, nothing like that. It's more about upkeep and confidence in leadership.
I have no thought that they are going to be doing anything like that, just that it's time for me to step aside and why.

I may not be in lockstep with the management, but it would surprise me if any direct member interaction in any but a cordial and polite light. They need you guys, membership is the goal.

For the company that runs it, it is, they dont care about anything but lining there wallets.

Its the Staff and members that make it an amazing site, not the company.

Guys, let's keep it as positive as we can. I don't want anyone thinking conspiracy theories or MTF like armageddon.
I just want you, my friends, to know why.

Sorry to hear this, and I too halfway expected things like this would happen, I was caught up in the other site demise, although the site is still there, It almost feels mechanical when I go there. Here was more of a family feeling.

God speed in your future endeavors.

I have to agree, not the same and a lot of hostility with certain members. I'm there due to so many forum friends.
Enjoy my visits here as I try to fit in!

Alan , you must do whats best for you. We will miss all your help here but hope after a brief absence, you will at least  hang out and post from time to time. I hope that you will still attend plow days and that I get a chance to see you there. 

 

Good luck and best wishes, Tom

Sorry it has had to come to this,But I understand it, alot of our moderators have stepped down due to the same reason. After reading the link you gave ,It made me wonder if someone from Carbon media is the one selling our manuals on Ebay to help line the pockets of the owners??????

Sorry to see you giving up the Moderator/Staff position, but I can honestly say that I completely understand your frustration and feelings. Pretty much going through the same issues over on the sister site, and like you, we aren't seeing much resolution over there either. I consider you a good Friend Alan, and although we may not continue to have close ties here anymore, please never forget that I cherish your Friendship, respect your wishes, and I'm honored to have you as a fellow Brother in Garden Tractors! 

 

Take Care buddy!
