Posted: Sat Jul 16, 2011 6:49 pm   I could say my mind boggles

I could say my mind boggles after seeing some of the postings of the last couple of years I've been absent, but that would be a gross misrepresentation of the facts. You see, I am very much aware of the enormous egos, vendettas, and attitudes existing here. Mine, admittedly, were among the largest when I was here.
I do have plausible deniability about the present health of this site that is one fourth or less the size it was when I was active here. My suggestions? When you point an index finger at anyone else be aware of who at least three of your other fingers are pointing at.
I think someone should fix this mess.

Most of those issues left when a few members left recently.

I have had all ten of my cities open in Main most all of several days recently. My activity for those days reads: 1483, 1837, and 1516. That would seem to indicate less 200 members were active any one of those days.

Proves my point in one of your other posts about the lack of multies here now

If your purpose is to reduce the pool of possible recruits for other dynasties and to eliminate competition by creating a monopoly I would say you have succeeded remarkably well. None of this is the way to grow a business, thus only 160 to 170 average takers for my ten prime minicities credits on Main.

That seems to be the direction membership participation, or lack of it, is pointing, yes. Monopolies lead to stagnation in competitiveness. Ask anyone in business.

Im more than willing to have a lot more competition here, but I guess the apathy of some make it easier for others to shine. Or maybe the hard work of a few are reflected in who is in what position.

If other teams want to work for it & try taking the top team down through hard work (rather than multies or buying members) then im all for it.

That sounded very good, until you began pointing fingers again. Ever wonder what caused some of those apathetic people to be that way? Perhaps its the same reason so many went away? I have been your Dutch uncle before, Jay, and I've never given you bad advice! :)

No finger pointing there at all. I dont have a Dutch Uncle either.

Simple point is, those at the top worked hard for it, those that arent are free & have been offered help numerous times on how the top team works & works so well. There is no secrets in how the top guys do it

Since all the other threads I have posted in have been locked, I suppose this "Suggestion" one wll be, too. I just love having these frank discussions with sites I've invested thousands of dollars and hours of work into! Have a Happy Koala!

how is life dababe, nice to see you :)

I wonder , when the site owner will find out why ''a few members'' (lmao) left yarolds, and why the forum is only used by 1 or 2 dynastys. When i am thinking back.... we had great times with all dynastys, and the contests where fun :)

As a dynasty that still uses the forum, all I can say is we are still using the forum just for the fun of it ;) rather than talking up that we are about fun.

Maybe spend a similar amount of time in your forum space as you do with all the not so fun comments you have been making & im sure you will again find the fun you think is missing

Posts only get deleted if they against the rules. So I can only summise that whatever you posted that ended up deleted couldnt have been fun anyways

Are you sure about what you are saying? Maybe you must start blaming your own members instead the Yarold's staff?
