After not renewing my Supporting Membership in part due to the departure of many of the contributors who shared my interests and whose opinions and thoughts I respected and in part due to some of the editorial comments and policies. Anyway, with some reluctance I decided to renew my Supporting membership. That was 9 days ago now and the editor has not updated my membership. That is hardly acceptable. Perhaps the Editor should spend more time taking care of the membership and less time thinking up ridiculous topics like whether the war made San Francisco gay

He is a bit slow with memberships. It will pop back on soon. No time lost. I once let mine lapse. It took a couple of weeks before he got to it.

I think the frustration is not based on this one instance but the bigger picture of late.

When things are so bad that multiple paying advertisers are complaining openly on the front page and at least to the folks who only see the front page there is not only the seemingly ever present backlog of taking care of routine things, there are still bugs that need fixing, unpaying members allowed to advertise in the marketplace, and an apparent cavalier attitude toward legitimate concerns and questions that I think many find off-putting.

This site used to be the go to place for miniature war gamers. Now, not only is it not, only the users of the site seem to care.

When you have an editor, a backup editor, and multiple part time editors,it becomes difficult to see why even the most basic tasks seem to be nearly insurmountable on a routine basis.

Nice not knowing why some things are going wrong is upsetting but some people really like kicking others when they are down.

Well that explains a lot. Thanks, wrgmr1.

Open replies to PMS

Terrement You made some good points and they were put fairly

Alcibiades A bit of a rant but I would be upset/angry if that had happened to me.

I think most of us would agree that the lack of a post explaining what is happening and a sorry for the slip in service has not helped things.

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
