I've had enough

Dear Group,

After having posted here for more than four years, I am on the edge of
quitting my regular presence in rec.sport.unicycling. I’ve had enough
of the continual breakdowns of the gateway between the newsgroup and
the forum, and the hassle I feel I have to go through when it happens
(alerting, reposting, catching up). For various reasons the forum
interface doesn’t appeal to me, so I use a newsgroup reader. But if my
posts don’t get through on the forum and I can’t read the posts made
on the forum I’m sort of in a vacuum.

I sincerely thank you all for your comraderie, good advice, humour and
all the other good things. Without this newsgroup I would never have
picked up unicycling, let alone the cool skills that I can now do, or
aspire to do. Of course I plan to continue riding, but maybe without
the inspiration from all of you it will fade away.

I will keep checking from time to time if the connection is up but if
not, I just give up. I can’t handle this anymore.

P.S. I may not read responses in this thread. PM’s via the forum site
should work, as do emails.

Re: I’ve had enough

on the off-chance that u do chech the responses to this thread, may i just say KLAAS!! PLEASE DONT GO!!! :astonished:
to lose a voice of reason and our stats fundi in one fell swoop would simply be too much to bear
give the web forum interface just one more try?

Re: I’ve had enough

Thanks for all the support, which only made it to my screen now that
the connection is back up. My post was interpreted a bit too
dramatically; I said I won’t poke around anymore when the connection
is down again. And since it was now down longer than ever before, I
was beginning to suspect that Gilby is just not interested to invest
effort (and money?) in just a few percent of the community. In which
case I might be out forever. In fact I liked the hour extra per day
:slight_smile:

And even if I would start using the forum (which I DON’T plan to),
there would be no statistics page at the end of the year.

Re: Re: I’ve had enough

yeah i felt ditched myself but in another way…the extra time though has been a blessing and when it really comes down to it,i think another unicycling forum or news group may be a good idea.a stable one without dictators and snipers.
