Majic's Update, July 12, 2005
I want to make sure you know I'm not leaving you hanging, hence a brief update.
I've solicited your input and have what I think is a good set of priorities for action, now I need to learn how to do the other side of things:
negotiate with the site administrators to make things happen.
I'm new at this, so let's assume that I'm going to suck at it. However, I do try to learn as I go, and that's where CF comes in.
There's a lot going on behind the scenes, and it's big. CF will be a part of it, but only a part.
In an attempt to kill two birds with one stone, I am planning to use CF as my “training forum”, with an eye toward learning how to collaborate
with the admins to modify, reorganize and create new forums in general.
The bad news is that this strategy makes CF my training forum, we can expect me to make mistakes, and this will tend to test your patience, not just
The good news is that, as a test bed, CF may well be one of the first forums to take on the new face of ATS.
None of this has been approved, and there may be problems with my approach that I haven't considered -- because I am, after all, new at this.
Oh hey, did I mention I'm a novice Councilor?
Novice or not, I want you to know where I am in the process, and that I plan to keep you informed as events unfold.
P.S. Nothing I am considering or proposing should be construed as being cavalier about the safety of the posts in CF. The integrity of the site's
database is paramount, and special care must be taken when testing anything. I will not recommend anything which jeopardizes your data. The interface,
on the other hand, will probably start off ugly and get prettier. Lettuce prey.
