If everyone thought like that then the world would be a pretty boring place I bet


Obviously there is no reason why a completely separate group cannot be opened as long as it does not directly involve Cat or any members of this site. Cat has had enough problems lately with this forum and I am sure she has no desire to look for new ones.

Well I'm up for helping with it, but not sure about doing it all myself, especially since I don't really know anyone here very well.

What? There are already groups on Flickr and other sites, the whole point is to start a group specifically for people who know each other here in order to let them share photos.

Cat was the one who suggested it :? not to mention that problems with her host crashing are in no way related to any problems which could be faced by this. If there was a photo gallery here it isn't proposed to be something that everyone can access anyway, the idea would be to make it private so that only specific people could access it, ones who are well established here and not just trolls.

Now she realises the potential problems she does not appear so keen and just because any problems would not be related to to the site crashing does not make them anymore welcome.

I have to say this has annoyed me. Before the discussions are over you have unilaterally decided to go ahead and create a gallery. OK, so I don't have exclusive rights to create a gallery and anyone is free to do so but it would have been nice to have been given the chance to come to a decision about my plans before someone else went ahead and implemented something. I guess the discussions are over. In future I'll be far less likely to discuss any future plans for the web site openly and keep them within the group of moderators.

Such unilateral action is impolite and merits a withdrawal of the album and an apology. I wasn't much in favour in the first place - we can just ignore EJP's approach and let Cat make her mind up over what she wishes to do. Incidentally for all the talk there haven't been many votes, so the whole decision making thing is probably premature, whatever the outcome.

I can only imagine how much it annoyed you. I know I was annoyed by it myself. Anything that's going to be official (or even quasi-official, as it was stated) needs to be signed off by the owner of the boards. Cat owns the rights on the FBZ name, people :)

If you want a forum Cat, then by all means have one- done to your specifications. I might never contribute but think it could be something that might be interesting to have.

If some of us want their own galleries somewhere else yours will still be the one to go to first for me.

My apologies for being so presumptuous, wasn't my intention to offend or annoy. I'll remove the link.

Your gallery might be a fine idea too, but I like the idea of an "official" gallery like I guess Cat was thinking about.

I see no reason not to have both if care is taken not to push Cat out of the way somehow.

I voted no.

I think the beauty of your site Cat, is that there are no photos here, a rare indulgence on the web these days. As a result of no photos, I think a certain type of person is attracted to the site, and I've grown to love you all over the years that I have been posting.

There are plenty of others sites for pictures of nude chicks - lets not go down that road here.

But as always Cat, I respect your judgement
