Exclamation State of the Forum

Hey guys, remember me? :P

I'm sad to say that I've pretty much moved away from this site in terms of online time (I've actually become a "lite-mod", so to speak, on a much larger forum dedicated to the PlayStation 3), and I've looked at a couple of reports since I was last active a couple of months ago, but the state of disarray on this site really hurts.

When I was appointed mod a few months before my "disappearance" I figured that I would be able to do this for the long haul. Unfortunately I failed you guys at that position because of some unforeseen events here in my life which caused me to leave. Although I came back from that a while ago, I ended up staying on the PS3 site I mentioned earlier.

However, this also sheds some light on the state of CSS.com from an administrative point of view. As has been painfully evident, no one has been appointed as a moderator to replace the lost manpower since me, Chris, and Paul left the site. As a result, CSS.com has been bombarded with nothing but porn and spam with no one around to get rid of it. For the faithful few that are still around in spite of all of that, it simply isn't fair to you guys to have to wade through all of that garbage just to have a decent discussion.

This used to be my absolute favorite site to come to, not just because of the discussion, but because of the community, so it truly saddens me to see it in it's current state. As such, I'll try to divide my time between the two websites rather than devote all of my administrative energy on just one website. I was also a part of the reason the site is in such bad shape, completely abandoning it knowing I was the only mod even remotely active, so it's only right that I see it through these tough times.

I'm going to try to get in contact with ekool and the other admins tomorrow about hopefully seeing what we can do to not only get some more manpower on here, but also improving the overall quality of the forum. Everyone here deserves better, and I'm going to do what I can to deliver that to them.

Cheers,

Joe

That sounds great. Get rid of all the stuff that does not belong here and maybe people will come back.

Me coming back is hardly the end all solution, I can only be on here a couple of hours in the day. Of course, that time will be spent monitoring the site.

I've sent ekool a PM, but I still haven't gotten a reply. Hopefully I'll get word from him soon.

I've send PM's to a number of admins, and I have yet to hear back from anyone. That said, none of them have logged on in a while.

It seems that we all have been trying our buts off trying to get ahold of a moderator or two. It is nice to see that this *problem* is going to be taken care of! Thank you for your hard work in advance and if you need more help with cleaning this place up just shoot me a PM.

Thank you kindly again!

Sorry I wasn't around today, guys. I had to drive 8 hours round-trip to pick up my brother in Wausau, WI. I STILL haven't gotten a response from ekool, but I'll shoot another PM to him and other admins.

It's sadly apparent that the admins have simply given up on this website. I've yet to receive any response from any of them despite how horrible I told them things are here.

I, however, won't give up on you guys and will at the very least monitor the site to delete the rampant porn and spam.
