This isn't about change just because we lost moderators.
This is about change for the better because we can.
This isn't "just about pulling members"
This is about growing our member base that is dedicated
and passionate about hammocks
Just because we are undergoing some management change,
does not mean that we should stagnate the forum and resist
adding features that would make it better.
I personally would love a podcast where I could spend an hour
and see some of the best topics and videos that I might have
missed if I was on vacation or something. We must also realize
that not every member is going to have hours to pour through
all of the current posts. If we give them a quick synapsis of
new and cool happenings, we could help people.
I personally do not need to just rebuild trust and reconciliation.
I am already past the "sky is falling" because all mods left idea.
I am (and always have been) of the how can we improve idea.
It just depends what the moderators or members are willing to do.
As I suggested before, this can be a fun venture with the community,
or it can just be a private thing that someone does. I think that
it would be better as a community effort. Regardless, it will happen.
