@DandyLion said in One post says this, but another say something else:
The first post you are referencing is left over from when we did have a request section.
There are reasons behind the scene that the request section was removed, but all those reasons were disclosed to staff and not intended for the general public.
I'm asking around to see if there is an alternate place for requests to go because recently people have been flooding different sections of the site with them. I will either update this post, or make a new thread when something is worked out.
We understand the frustration with the removal of requests since every staff member of the site started as a user but the request came from the top and we have to respect his wishes.
I really don't want to be an antagonizer.
However I am curious, and would like to ask who decided, and why they decided that their reasoning behind the removal of this spacific section of the site, that was obviously loved, and very widely used by us, the users of this site, who contribute to, as well as use, and in some small part make this site the community that it is, was removed?
I can understand if it's just the person who pays the bills, and hosts/manages the servers that this site runs on just up and decided to remove it, if that's the case. However I cannot wrap my head around, or understand why this person would deem it necessary to be so secretive about their reasoning or choice to remove the section from the site, and leave all of us users clueless, completely lost in the dark, scrambling, scattered, dazed, and confused.
I can't imagine it actually being something so absolutely sensitive in nature that it has to be treated as classified top secret, like some Government coverup.
Honestly what can possibly be so secretive about the reasoning behind removing it that you can't tell us why it was removed?
While it's sad to say, I do honestly believe that in the long run of things, the removal of the request section, as well as the decision to keep us the users in the dark, blissfully ignorant will end up hurting the site, and lead to it's decline just like so many other sites have for various other reasons, much like the site I left in favor of this one.
I truly hope that doesn't happen, as I've really come to enjoy this site, I even invested some money into it, not much, but some, and would hate to see it go.
