Default A mature discussion about the reasons behind the boycott

There has been threads about the boycott itself, but I really don't feel its a big deal. David took what he felt was the necessary action, and thats over.

What needs to happen now is to have the mature people from each side discuss in public why they feel an assistant administrator is necessary.

This is my understanding so far:

We need an assistant administrator because David doesn't have enough time to make as many changes as we would like. Which is understandable since he probably has a real job.

David doesn't want an assistant administrator, because in the end it's his website and he does not want to lose any control over it. Any very important decisions he wants the final say over, and he feels that he is submitting some of this power by creating the position of assistant administrator. Or maybe the assistant will do something to undermine him, or mess up the website. All understandable.

I think it would be appropriate for us to discuss these issues here. No talk of the boycott, no talk of spammers, or members who have been recently banned or unbanned. Just the issues. And hopefully David can find the time to discuss this here.

None of them are actually about the reasons behind the boycott. Their all about the spammers, and banning ArrizX (which is absolutely ridiculous), and no ones actually talking about why the people were boycotting.

I agree to that. But what are we talking about when we say an assistant administrator. David can't be expected to hand over access to FTP, the CPanel, and everything else to someone he hasn't even met.

Here's my thoughts on this issue.

If you don't like what's going on in this forum, go somewhere else. It's that simple.

looks like cf is going to be empty then
why forget about the problems when we can fix it and make cf much better?
