Again, I have read the comments, but no one seems to understand what I am upset about/what I complain about. I am trying again:
What no-one has yet answered; I would like to understand why it was a good idea to make the decision of closing the forum based on private information and never take it public. I am in favour of the Conservatory forum, but I understand that some could have problems with it. However, I do not understand that this could not have been discussed.
Overall: I question why it was never taken up for public debate to close the forum?
Can YOU tell me that?
As it is - in my point of view - those who didn't like it, had all the time to say so. Those who liked it, had no time before closing time. I am feeling put-off and pushed-aside.
I am sorry. Tread prefixes and special user groups do NOT replace a forum. It is a band-aid at the most. At the very least, honest discussion, not this *sneaking* change. Sorry, but I feel it is sneaking, that while others, who didn't like the Conservatory had a lot to say, I just liked it and read it and sometimes posted and didn't feel a need to tell Alex that I liked it and idn't feel at all upset about - I just used the place. And now it's just closed. No say-so at all. No fucking input. I feel it's completely unfair and that that has not been adressed at all.
I'm logging off now for tonight, so you have time to answer.
