A lot of people asked for you to not be made admin, but alas, vetoed

A small minority of noisy people in one forum isn't "a lot" at least we actually give people a chance to speak, before things were simply changed on admin whims.

But they weren't patronising tossers, so it balances really.

Maybe we didn't explain ourselves clearly as this wasn't the case. The decision was made because from the survey we got quite a lot of feedback from people saying that the love boats was quite obscure and difficult to understand for newcomers and also a lot of people asked if we could open that area of the forum to include group threads so we decided to open it up and make it a 'community' section with individual and group thread. It's only afterwards that we thought that we could reintroduce a new user thread on there so that actually came last.

Have you guys thought about, oh I don't know, changing the description of the forum to something that actually describes the content? Because that would probably be the first thing to consider. A forum description isn't just there for looks.

So you want to have groups in there? Fantastic, let's do it. Create a group thread for new users, leave the name as it is, and change the description. Couldn't be simpler.

Yes, we have, of course, that's exactly what we are doing. Also, the name.

Exactly this. And also, "Community" is silly because that's what basically describes the whole forum, seems stupid making one forum that and the rest... "non-community" or whatever

I don't like the way how you guys have just announced this and don't seem like you're open to the ideas we're giving. I know you're the mods but we should be able to have a solid say too, and it's pretty obvious most here don't like the idea...

pretty much everyone has hated the name for ever and it has no zero relevance to the contents of the forum anymore since about 4-5 years ago when people stopped writing *appreciates* at the end of every post there.

*appr*

Community sounds awful, imo. Let's hope these threads for newbies will be a bit more substantial than ' oh haizzzzzzzzzzz i'm new and love matttttttie : D ' to which no-one will respond to.

I really don't understand why anyone would have a problem with the name "Love Boat" going, can understand not liking the new name, because well that's a hard problem but alas.

yes, so changing it kinda ruins it. It really annoys me that it is going to be ruined.

That was much more that 4 or 5 years ago! Like back in 2005 or something
