well, you can hope I suppose..... 😞

 

Yes, optimism is (even though I sez it as shouldn't) a good quality, I think. In this case it is justified.

Its the CWDF Christmas Puzzle.

Some of my posts over the original spat were deleted, never got told why,

Mike, you raise a good point. When we hide a post (which we do far more often than actually deleting it) we are supposed to add a note giving our reason. Trouble is of course, the post is hidden, so the miscreant can't see the reason! But we generally send an explanatory message to the member too.

Then we must agree to disagree, my friend, because I witnessed the editing and the deleting, and I saw the before and the after.

Optimism is easier if you are prepared to accept the referee's decision.

If ones not prepared to accept the referee's decision....One should not be playing the game...

As perhaps an Elder member of this forum..   I understand life a little better.   So trivia is just that...

Probably; but as a newer member this is my first forum wobble and it's a little disconcerting.

But forum wobbles brought on by a mod are not great for all members

An Elder member but with only 172 posts to your name in 5 years, suggests that the forum isn't important to you.

For which they apologised, what followed thereafter, was/is human nature. You kick, I kick  They kick, We kick.

That my friend is life and in this case it matters little.

Lets all have a Very Mery Christmas and A less troublesome New Year.

Sadly humble pie doesn’t seem to be a dish that was on their table this Christmas

The events of the previous 24 hours haven't gone unnoticed by the rest of the site team. I can only ask that you give us some time to try and all get together to discuss a way forward. At this time of the year as you can appreciate it's not that straight forward.

 

Merry Christmas everyone :)

 

Liam.

If they find it unpalatable why should they eat....

In the great scheme of things our little forum matters very little, we are all here to learn and enjoy, to communicate and onpass knowledge.  If infighting is your thing, take up politics..

Merry Christmas 🎁🎊🎉

It’s rare that I’ve had a post hidden although it has happened occasionally. I have NEVER received an explanatory pm when it’s happened.

Is it successful?
It doesn't seem to be growing in membership by any great numbers, and just seems to be a outlet for lots of people who have previously been banned from here.
 

I've never been banned from anywhere !I'd say the same about many of the Thunderboat members.

I think the success of the Thunderboat forum proves you are wrong. 

No, it just proves there's a place for both, as I've said before. As an occasional visitor to TB, mostly to follow Tony's stuff, it seems to me that most of the postings are done by a handful of people. Nothing wrong with that, but there's more variety of views on here and the odd blip doesn't alter that.

I have, can't remember who by, but I did get a PM about it from the mod concerned. So maybe that's another variable that should be fixed. Though I suppose sometimes it'd be so obvious they might not bother...
