What the?
Hi! <sheepish.wave>

Ok.. I've had PC issues, so have been re-re-building my PC and trying to get it to function properly.

I come back this evening hoping to start a funky KAL.. and I find threads of ppl leaving????

I don't want to resurge the drama, as it's obviously all over (kinda) now... but DON'T LEAVE!!!!

:( KH was my one forum that had no drama and everyone played nice... I don't know when or why that changed but... <sad.tia.here>...

I don't know what to say/do... I've noticed a couple of my friends are now gone.... and although I lurve everyone ... I feel torn. I don't want to leave.. I love it here.. or I did... :(

Please reassure me there's still lots of love here!!

I don't do KALs, so I missed the goodbye threads. But I did see a long thread on another popular knitting board lamenting about how many members had left. Strange.

Maybe it's just with school starting or people getting ready to just generally "refresh and renew" in the Fall that's keeping them off the board(s)?

All boards have their dramas - goes with the territory. But, there's love too if you're open to it. I hope you're not too worried.

Well, if you go in the blog threads, you will understand better. But some blogs were deleted, a lot of the discussion was deleted as well, some members were banned and many others just left. So to understand what's going on, the best is to ask Amy and Sheldon I suppose. Or to just let it go and hope it's over.

It was a great big mess that started over a lot of misunderstanding, too much speculation, and a betrayal. I think people were hurt on both sides and it just ended very ugly with people leaving.

I am pretty upset about the whole thing and now that everything has been brought to my attention, I feel like a fool for not being a better mod. I'm pretty much emotionally spent and don't know what to do anymore.

I hope people can just let it go. It was a mess that is really best just left alone. The good thing is that it can only get better from here, and hopefully future issues will be dealt with more efficiently.

Don't be too hard on yourself Silver. We all appreciate the work all the mods are doing, and we know how difficult it is, with the forum being so big!

I think you're absolutely right. Better to let it go and move on! Some people left but new members are joining us every day. Let's focus on that!

Hmmm...I'm so lost! I certainly hope none of my threads contributed to whatever drama transpired.

I love this board and all of y'all!

Nice to see you again, my friend!
