And Brandon, IB doesn't call all the shots here. Marco was the interface before between vb.org and vb.com and now Carrie and I are doing that. That's all that has really changed. It just may seem strange at first since Carrie and I were both mods here and now are mods over on vb.com. So, we are seen on both sites even though the sites are actually separately run.

But he was missing something. He was unable to understand that you don't ban a coder with 5 active modes for 15 days, just because he/she wrote a price in a post, and let the other members awaiting for support for such a long time.

Same applies for Calorie, I don't count her as helpfull person here, except if you're asking support for her Photoplog.

I need pages of pages to write for Lynne, but I prefer to say just a phrase: "She can keep this site active and all members happy, just by her presence."

Well let's just be harsh and kick a man when he's down eh? Gosh let's all cheer up, no one likes change but we have it here and Marco's heading out so I can't be confused with an arse-kisser therfor long story short he had rules and principles as do we all! I had a infraction once, I PM'd him to clear things up and it was reversed, that's how ethical he was however imo he did not like to put up with whining or showing true colors of any sort but again, imo I will not speak for him but believe I know him well enough to know he's a good guy and did not deserve that being publicly plastered on the site he has ran and maintained for years, that was quite honestly, rude in the very sense of the word.

Enough of all that though, I truly LOVE that Lynne was promoted and I know it's going to be a lot of hard work for her... we just lost some of those hours she puts into helping us all with helpful posts.. I'm sad about that (kidding) however I know she'll be faster than a speeding bullet i.e. faster than Superman, well she's always better than me so no worries here this is going to... I must go back to my early years here but "Rock" with Lynne .

CONGRATS!

What I wrote here now, it's something that I've told to Marco (and Calorie) 2 years ago, and much more I post it in a support ticket to vb.com. I was never been a double faced person. Similar situation exists with Paul M too, but I can't say anything against him. His almost 20,000 posts, his mods and articles are very helpfull to the community. Just we don't like each other.

I can see IB Adrian here. At least someone who is not hidding his online status. That's good. Very good I can say. And if he decide to hear what members are saying, should be the best.

Everyone, just to respond to a few questions/comments.

I would like to re-iterate our thanks for Marco's contributions to the site, whatever personal differences you may have had, we are very grateful for the effort that Marco placed into vb.org

Internet Brands - while technically owning vb.org aren't going to be overseeing its day to day operation - you received this announcement from me as it involved vBulletin's official representative on vb.org - I would like to participate more in the community going forward, but the site will continue to be run by vb.org members, we (vBulletin) are very grateful to have a community like vbulletin.org to support our product with modifications in the manner than everyone here does, and I would like to participate more in it to see how we can support it better.

Thanks,
Adrian

If I remember well, you said something similar for Ken when he gone. Come on Adrian. As you said, here is not vb.com to be official. Let yourlselve talk free. Free up your mind. Believe me you'll feel an ulimited freedom like being at the edge of a high mountain :-)).

Its simple as 1-2-3.
  1. Find a "Lynne" living in Europe
  2. Ask Administrators to decide in which camp they belong. vBulletin or xenForo. To have a big community working well, must exist trust between Admins and Members. What type of trust to give to someone who is Admin here, and on the same time is posting a module at xenForo on how to transfer posts from vB to xenForo?
  3. Restrict Admins to have commercial mods.

4. Make it so mod authors/creators can yes discontinue or remove thier mod however instead of the Graveyard (use that for people who blatantly released someone else's mod or situations like that i.e. style ripp offs etc) create a new area to move the mod's thread for discussion and support by other members yet the .zip is removed OR only available if you have downloaded it in the past that could be an idea as well. I don't know how many times a friend or a client has come to me asking about a mod they have installed by MicroHellas above and it was yanked per her night and day temperaments or health issues so to deprive them of a place to post and possibly be helped by others (like me or someone else who can help with the mod) is not fair and in a sense makes no sense, follow?

This allows us to respect the author's wishes in cases like MicroHellas above by removing yet leaving a place for members who have installed and use to possibly receive support, much more fitting then everything to the graveyard imo.

I do highly agree with her statement about vB / Xf but that's a touchy subject for me as they were and are friends, they should not be "told" they can't do this or that but at the same time there's so many circumstances we are not aware of in regards to all of this so that there must be left up to IB Adrian or others I reckon as that's all I have to say can't argue when your not 100% up to par on something now can we? .

Aw, come one, now. Give Carrie a chance. She is VERY knowledgeable about the inner workings of vb. I think she will do great in the new position. She and Lynne make an unbeatable team.

I do agree with "per her night and day temperaments", but on this you have to pay attention in some hidden points. Let's get as example my last ban. I'll not discuss if it was correct or not, but at least I was expecting (while I was unable to logon and post), someone from Admins to post in my theads that I'm banned that's why I can't reply. This is something that nobody did. What happen after all? As I never hidden my email address, I was getting dozens of emails a day, most of them rude, so I had to explain to everybody that I was banned that's why I was unable to reply.

But that's the past. As Atakan said, is better to forget it. If you haven't noticed, after my last surgery and feeling unable for hard mental work, I offered full copyright transfer to anybody who wants to continue upgrading and supporting them, and have some income from donations and brand free. I didn't kept anything for me.

This is a thread to announce the departure of Marco and the fact that Lynne and Carrie have taken up his role, not a thread for taking up grievences against current or previous staff members, or questions about vb4 - please stay on topic. Thanks.
