When are you going to give up FES?

Now John Davis has left. Awesome. Another one of the few people on this site that actually backed you, and one of the few people that actually gave a sh*t. We have no mods left. We have no FEBs. We have no wiki. We have no leader.

You are clearly not interested in TFES. You haven't been for years. You use it purely as a joke for your friends. "Look at me, I'm president of the flat earth society" - isn't that joke getting old yet? You can't be getting anything out of it. You are never here.

Traffic is dropping off, regulars are leaving, the quality of posting is at an all time low, and no one can do a damn thing about it.

You are not interested so let someone else do it. John Davis or Tom Bishop. The only two perennial features of FES. FES belongs to them. Let them steer it back to something on the internet worth visiting.

You've been a total ar*sehole about the whole thing. Your friends have all left, you haven't made any new ones because you don't post here. Please p*ss off for good and allow someone else to manage the site.

Kindest regards,

Thork

I agree with what you say, but I just can't justify spending the amount of energy it would take to care as much as you do.

John Davis or Tom Bishop.

These are your suggestions? John already said he is too busy for this site, and he regularly forgets promises he makes to do stuff around here, how would that be any better? And Tom apparently turned into a power-mad tyrant when he was just made a mod, and constantly lies about everything.

Maybe the site is just dying, and why do you care so much?

Don't worry, Thork (rooster). I'm going to post my latest discovery soon. It will surely revive this excellent site for a couple of weeks.

Those allegations were false. It was alleged that I was going around editing posts for my own benefit, but I did not. What happened is that as a user I was used to the Reply button being at a certain place and on a few occasions I had accidentally hit the new "Modify" button instead of the "Reply" button and inserted my comments into the poster's post, which was immediately fixed on discovery, leaving the "edited by Tom Bishop" mark at the bottom.

If the site is dying then Daniel needs to pass it onto someone else. Anyone else. A president who participates in the forum and comes around more than once every few months would make a world of difference.

I completely agree with Thork (except the personal allegations). This site definitely needs to be passed to someone else (yeah, blahblah, 'but is his site he do not need to do what he no want'), because it's totally dying and losing all the members that do anything. It's now just a few of us who've been here for a long time holding up the fort in the hopes that it'll get better somehow. But we've lost Wilmore, Daniel, James, and John, and that's just out of mods. It's getting pretty ridiculous, and as fun as this site once was, now it's just watching devoted regulars hold off the trolls.

I'm really sorry that John Davis has gone. As one of the few genuine flat earth believers who regularly posted, i feel his presence will be sorely missed.

On the positive side, i know he has gone so that he can give his time to other flat earth projects. I would like to, via this forum, wish him well and i'm looking forward to hearing how he is getting on.

Oh, do get over yourself. You've got over 6000 posts and yet you still don't realise what this site really is? I think Daniel is doing an excellent job, and part of that job is to see just how far one can provoke idiots like yourself to anger simply by doing nothing. Don't you realise you're standing on an agar plate and Daniel is watching you through his microscope? Of course you don't, you think that you and the other FES bigwigs like Tom and John are in some way important or relevant. Stop strutting about like a bantam cock trying to impress the lady bantams.

It would be impressive if, in your short time here, you managed to figure out what no other regular poster has. Have you considered the possibility that you're mistaken?

This is true, which is why Thork's confrontational approach, much like Tom's "campaign" to be elected president, will not work.  But the fact does remain that this website will continue to stall while Daniel is asleep at the wheel.  I still maintain that the best course of action is to persuade Daniel to turn over control of this message board to a senior member here who could run it more efficiently, while he continues to be president of the FES itself.  Of course, with all the senior members dropping like flies, it may be a little too late for that now.

In the few years we've been members here, I don't remember Daniel ever participating on the site much. I hope he doesn't turn the site over to anyone.  Perhaps he should appoint a couple new staff members, but turning the site over to someone else could make things so much worse. Just remember how much fun this site used to be, before all the anal rules, and the destruction of AR. Some new owner might do away with all the non-FE forums entirely.

Also, internet forums are dying, not just TFES forum. It's no surprise that new registrations are down, or that people are slowly drifting away. I hope that someday people will tire of Facebook and that forums will return to their former anonymous glory, but they probably won't... something new will come along and everyone will flock to it.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I'm running out of suggestions. We've tried everything. Several years of hoping. Several years of apathy. Subtle hinting. A campaign for someone else. A direct approach. As you say it may already be too late. :( Its just frustrating that the answer to every issue always boils down to 'Daniel'.
