    I asked myself the same question some time ago.

    I am an infrequent visitor to TreoCentral. I have had my 600 for close to a year. I was pretty addicted to VisorCentral though. The contests, the games, the roadtrip... the forums had people answering questions - even "what are the must-have apps?" threads had people responding with "welcome to the forum" and links to the other threads on the topic instead of snippy "do a search" replies.

    Perhaps it is the larger and perhaps younger user base.

    I guess the pro to the popularity of the devices is that maybe my device and accessories won't become as obsolete as my springboards did.

    ToolkiT - you'll be missed! I'm sorry the burden became too great. Burnout is always looming for anyone that volunteers.

    What amazes me is that no mod ever acknowledged what seemed to be clear to EVERY other poster in that thread. We all complained and we are the @ss holes.

    toolkit...thanks for your work here. Make sure you are being honest with yourself.
    Everyone that complained about this situation also said in general the mods do a great job.

    Often times when there is acomplaint it turns into the mods becoming defensive instead of dealing with the issue.

    These are not blanket statements of course. Mark, James and especially ronbo I have found to be pretty consistent.


    I know that I could've ignored posts like "a pit bull isn't even a pit" and they should all be put down"

    but I also have an investment in this forum and that kind of hate is not consistent with treocentral. When I complained, your response to me was unbelievable. You told me to grow up.

    My friend, moderator or not...you know too little of me to have the right to say that.



    My sincere best to you.

    would also been easier to ban dutchtrumpet for flaming, piling on etc.....

    I also noticed a change from Visorcentral. I'm not sure about the cause of the difference.

    I frankly don't worry about it too much. Sometimes I spend a lot of time here, but it is still just a website, after all. Not that important in the big scheme of things.

    Thanks to ToolkiT and the other mods for their work here.

    Toolkit has been an excellent moderator for TreoCentral, and VisorCentral. He has been with us for almost 6 years, and has shown dedication, tolerance, insight, patience, and care for the TreoCentral community. I stand by every one of his actions, and will greatly miss him helping out at TreoCentral.

    The conditions of his departure make this a sad goodbye. TreoCentral recognizes that there is an impasse between the forum users and the forum staff, and throughout the next week we hope to announce and implement clarifications and improvements, to encourage better support, collaboration, and communication between forum staff and forum users. TreoCentral stands behind and will support each and everyone of our moderators, people such as Toolkit, MarkEagle and ronbo2000. We do recognize that the forum is the most important aspect of this website; it has weathered changing user-bases, changing products, and horrendous downtimes, but somehow it has stuck together.

    People on this forum has done great things. Hundred's of thousands of people have read these threads, and been helped by advice given. Great software has been developed, bugs disclosed, and community created. I am certain that this forum will continue to be the most active and interesting Treo forum on the web.

    Thank you for your continued support, we will have more information about forum policy within a week.

    I took your calling me a child as an attack. You can see how it goes both ways.

    For my part in taking the fun out of your volunteer job, I am truly sorry. Please know that whenever I made questions about moderation it was not an attack. I say only what I mean and nothing more.

    My best to you.
    geez, you want your cake and to eat it too?? You "say only what you mean". So if what you say is an attack or inflamatory it's okay because your "only responding to posts......."

    wow

    Dude, let it go. We can clearly see that you and dutch are not going to run off together. The constant prodding is getting old. It is pretty clear you are only trying to get a reaction. It's over, the thread has been closed. Why must you drag this into every conversation you enter?

    And yes I know I am not a mod and it may not be my place to say, but from one community member to another, please give it a rest. To use your words, go outside and walk the dog or something.

    Ttrundle: I don't need to defend Dutch, he can do that himself.

    However, INTENT does matter. Not just when it comes to the law but in a lot of the areas of our lives. If someone interprets something the wrong way when it wasnt intended...that doesnt make it ok but should MITIGATE the damages (and its effects.)

    You and Dutch were going at it pretty good. Could you have stopped posting what you did about pitbulls in the dog and pic thread and could Dutch have gone about reporting you again and continuing to do so until a Moderator took action? Probably. It really doesnt matter now though.

    Why don't we just let it go.

    I guess some here could start their own site...ttrundlecentral.com, or pitbullsarethantichristupdate.com. Maybe with a petition or something...

    There, I have crapped my own thread

    Sorry, Tool...

    Don't forget to add a 'neither' option... because they way you three are acting I'd say that option could be very popular...

    My apologies. This thread was started as a goodbye to you. I didn't know it would be hijacked by someones petty arguement with another user.

    Ok I'll bite. Let what go? If you are refering to my discussion with Mark about moderating, ok. The difference as I see it, and it's just my veiw of course, is that we are actually trying to get somewhere. We may not agree, but we may begin to see the others perspective and I would be happy with that. We are both forwarding our points of view in the hopes the other person will begin to understand the opposite position.

    Your posts are nothing more that inflammatory statements designed to illicit a response and are in fact very unproductive. If you want to fight with dutch send him a pm and call him a name. Hell send him a pitbull in the mail, I don't care. Just consider that even though your right to post here is no greater or lesser than anyone else, these type of posts are disrespectful of the conversation already in progress.

    Yes, yes I know you arent the only one who does this, but I am only talking about this thread here and now and not every other on the forum.

    Maybe this will help. Please.
