@yoregano Member Advisory Board. I couldn’t remember if you were a member. … We played with beta prior to updates, gave opinions, discussed issues with mods but in the end I didn’t feel we were being listened to.
Gotcha. No, wasn’t part of that. But what you describe reminds me of the discussion that went on in the “What is wrong with the Hot Deals forum?” thread that was started a few years back. Lots of ideas shared. A fair amount of input from FW mods, but then it became clear soon enough that they were just giving lip service and never had any intention of implementing any significant changes. I kind of wonder how far back the idea of shutting down FW came into being and if they already knew it was in the works and didn’t care about anything longtime FW users had to say.
@Oppidum, I was under moderation for almost a whole year before FW shut down, I know what that is like. Again, it was half-baked accusations and no clear explanation of my “crimes” before the judgment was given to me. I got tired of asking how long I was going to be in “time-out” and I think they either forgot about or didn’t care or both.
